Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. Whitechapel's Zach Householder
Tue, 29 Apr 2014 14:00:19
Whitechapel are one of our favorite metal bands. The Tennessee boys make music that rips a hole in your skull, but in the best possible way. Underneath the riffs and the bowels-of-hell screams are warm and friendly Southerners.
We've invited Zach Householder to Take Aim and aim he took!
Yes, that IS the rhythm guitarist's real name. And it's probably one of the coolest names ever. That's why we love him. Well, that and is witty and fun answers and his band's facemelting metal! Rawr!
The band's new album Our Endless War is out now.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
I'm an old soul. I enjoy the small things in life. I laugh at my own jokes and have issues with people lacking manners and common sense.
If you were not doing music, you would be…
Either a vet tech or a grease monkey.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Fishing, Harleys, front-porch-sittin', audio engineering, and good beer.
All noble pursuits! Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
I write and record my writing constantly. A majority of the time, it's because I have a sudden idea I want to track or because I'm bored and want to be productive. Then there's the times when i REALLY write. By that I mean it's a whole process full of being in that moment and totally in the zone. There's no secret to achieve this -- it's just the right place at the right time. A lot of times it'll hit you out of nowhere and that's kind of where 'Blacked Out' came from. I just sat down with a six-string guitar I had recently changed pick ups in and voila, that song came to life out of nowhere.
There you have it! Thanks, Zach, now enjoy the title-track to Our Endless War:
Are you about to worship at Whitechapel?
