Yhdysvaltalaisen metalliyhtye Lamb Of Godin oli määrä esiintyä maaliskuussa Suomessa yhdessä Kreatorin ja Power Tripin kanssa, mutta kiertue siirtyi lopulta koronaviruksen vuoksi ensi vuoteen. Yhtyeen kitaristi Mark Morton on nyt antanut australialaiselle Subculture Entertainmentille haastattelun, jossa hän kertoo kirjoittaneensa hiljattain paljon uutta musiikkia niin seuraavalle sooloalbumilleen kuin myös Lamb Of Godin seuraavalle albumille. Morton kertoo haastattelussa nauttineensa ajasta kotona perheensä parissa mutta paljastaa samalla olleensa tänä aikana myös erittäin luova uuden musiikin osalta. Voit lukea tästä, mitä kerrottavaa miehellä oli korona-ajan aiheuttamasta keikkatauosta:

”I have certainly taken advantage of the time with family and the time at home to kind of slow down a little bit. In this business that I’m in, you’re always kind of jumping from one mode to the next; you don’t really ever stop. People see us sort of disappear off the road and think that we’re on a break or a hiatus, I guess, if they think about it. But typically, we go straight off the road right into some sort of writing mode or pre-production or that kind of thing.

This situation, as unfortunate as it is, has provided me personally with [an opportunity] to press ’pause’ a little bit and reflect on where I’m at, spend time with family and enjoy our beautiful home. I have been writing. I’m kind of always writing, so that’s not like a revolutionary development for me. I write when it comes — I don’t sit down and go, ’Okay, so this week I’m gonna write.’ If I have a song idea, I sit down and make a demo, and that’s that. So that’s not been different, but it’s happened a lot in the last four, five months where I’ve got a lot of song ideas coming together, a lot of ideas just kind of jumping out at me, and I do have the time and the access to my studio to document that stuff and to work on it a little bit. So that’s been a real positive for me.

Writing and recording and creating new music is my favorite part out of all the things we get to do. here’s a lot of elements, a lot of components about being in a band like LAMB OF GOD. Performing and touring is one of them. Writing and recording is another one of them. The writing and recording part is far and away my favorite part of what we get to do. And so I have been doing some writing. I’ve been writing some stuff for LAMB, some stuff for other people, some stuff for my own solo project, so there’s a lot of new music jumping out of me right now.”
