Elizabeth Schall: Dreaming Dead

I like to think we're to the point where your music speaks for yourself," she continues. "Nothing beyond a fad is going to come because you put your vag in a picture. The sincere metal fans can pick that apart."

"The metal scene feels like home to me. It's like when you live with your parents and siblings, you don't think of things like 'I'm a girl and I'm a guy.'"
