Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?
Dom: I think that the metal scene as a whole is here to stay no matter how it rises or falls through the years it remains constant whether it’s underground or more popular. It is and always will be. In the US, Metal as an entire genre has seen better days, all thanks to trendy weak ass fucking pathetic music that is forced upon people. Metal is something you choose and live, not mindless dribble that’s forced on you!!!
