Hybrid outfit Audiotopsy have come as a welcome surprise to the metal scene against what many, including themselves, consider overwhelming odds. Vocalist Billy Keeton (Skrape), guitarist Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne, Hellyeah), drummer Matt McDonough (Mudvayne) and bassist and relative newcomer Perry Stern said that it took the stars to align for this to happen. Well, the stars have aligned and Audiotopsy have arrived and brought with them some big plans, and a big debut album, ‘Natural Causes’ due for release on August 28th on Napalm Records. There is a lot to take in on ‘Natural Causes’, and it’s really, really good. Audiotopsy may be well versed in their respected fields, but this is still their debut album, and any debut comes with a learning curve.
Gearing up for the release, Metal Wani’s Carl Rourke & Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with founding member and guitarist Greg Tribett. He discusses formation of the band, new album “Natural Causes”, riffs, songwriting, Musical ideas, working relationship with HELLYEAH members and singer Chad Gray, possible Reunion with MUDVAYNE and much more.
