Erk FM: Metal Monday Preview 09 – Centred Self interview






Welcome to preview episode 09 of Erk FM: Metal Monday, Erk’s heavy rock/metal music podcast featuring a wide range of podsafe, unsigned & independent heavy rock & metal music from across the world.


This episode is an interview with Symon (guitar) and Allan (drums) from western Sydney progressive metal band Centred Self. Music supplied directly by the band. During the interview, we find out how Centred Self got its name, how the band got together, recording and rehearsing, drumming, the live music scene in Sydney & a lot more. On the day of this interview, Symon & Allan were pre-producing drum tracks at Party Pig Studios in the early stages of producing the forthcoming Centred Self debut album (planned for late 2011).


Keep listening at the end of the interview for Erk’s very first attempt at playing drums as well as some entertaining out-takes & bloopers!


Song list:

  • Neverland
  • Waveform
  • Measure of Madness

You can hear that interview & Allan’s drum skills (so much better than Erk’s) on Erk FM episode 174 which became Erk FM: Metal Monday Preview episode 9. […]
