2008 into 2009: Order of Ennead

December 21st, 2008

Floridian extreme metallers Order Of Ennead might be a side project but with an album in the can, they’re already making waves. We spoke to bassist, Scott Patrick (Resurrection) and guitarist, Kevin Quirion (Council Of The Fallen).

What was your highlight of 2008?
S: Getting Order Of Ennead up and running.
K: It was a great year. We signed to Earache in May, recorded our debut at Audio Hammer in June. We got to share the stage with Deicide, Hate Eternal, Municipal Waste and Adrift. And our second album is already in the demoing stages, so we were very productive this year.

What is your funniest tour story of 2008?
K: Scott, while in Italy, was so smashed. He just laid his backpack down and then immediately started asking where it was. Later he passed out and Glen Benton started taking pics of him. The guy looked like a corpse he was so out of it. Jack Owen is hilarious as well.

December 12th, 2008

Gama Bomb might well be the best thrashers to come out of Ireland… ever. Joe McGuigan is the self-proclaimed “leader of the futuristic warriors hell-bent on destroying Fightstar.” He is also the bassist of the gumby troupe.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Releasing our ace new tape, Citizen Brain and doing over 60 shows in Europe. Touring with Exodus and shoving petrol-covered rags down the gullet of non-believers.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Errrm, doing over 60 shows in Europe. Nah, nothing bad has happened to the band – it’s been an amazing year. Me? I think I hit my wee toe off the door last month.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Sharing the stage with Fightstar, Story of the year, Atreyu and touring with Finch, To be honest 2008 has been fun. I feel that we have achieved a lot for the amount of time we have been going. Good times.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
1. Forgetting my hair straighteners for a 12-day tour. 2. Our van brakes broke on the way to a show in Munich, Germany, which meant we had to sit in the van for 18 hours or so while we waited for Jamie’s (bass player) dad to come rescue us. Four English guys sat in a big white van in the middle of Belgium gets quite a lot of attention. Bad times.
