With Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2012 just around the corner I had a chance to interview drummer Brock Wettstead of heavy metal band Dirtfedd. If you haven’t heard of them I would suggest you checkout a little playlist I put together for them at the end of this article with 4 songs from their album “The American Nightmare” which was produced by Shawn Crahan aka Clown from the band Slipknot. Dirtfedd will also share the stage with Slipknot after Mayhem Fest at the first annual Knotfest. Other bands expected to play at Knotfest include DEFTONES, LAMB OF GOD, DETHKLOK, SERJ TANKIAN, CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THE URGE, PRONG, and GOJIR.
In this interview we discuss what bands they are looking forward to seeing and sharing the stage with at Mayhem. We also talk about a 6 song EP they are working on currently in the studio which will again be produced by Shawn Crahan aka Clown from the band Slipknot, favorite horror movies, where the name Dirtfedd came from and much more. I hope you enjoy the interview and playlist below. Don’t forget to check out all of Dirtfedd’s band links below.
