Sally Gates: Metalero interview Orbweaver's guitar shredder

Luis Landeo of Peru's Arsenal Del Metalero talks to Sally Gates about Orbweaver and their upcoming release, 'Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicion'.

I know you are from New Zealand, but the band is from Miami-USA, do you miss your country? What difference do you find between New Zealand metal scene and American metal scene?
Having toured around America several times, it’s hard to sum up the whole scene as a lot of centres are very different to one another. Orbweaver is based in Miami, and there is actually has a very cool music scene down here. People are very open minded and there is a lot of support for all types of creative endeavours, not necessarily just metal. For example there is a strong noise scene. (Randy also has a solo noise project - Death Talisman VII, which he performs with regularly.) A lot of the shows we play are not all strictly with metal bands either; there is a lot of variety to each line up and it all works quite well and keeps things interesting. I definitely miss New Zealand, and it will always be home to me. Being rather cut off from the rest of the world means that people are more appreciative when bigger bands do come down, and the local scene is very close knit and supportive of each other. However the distance also makes it harder to gain exposure on an international level, as if you want to tour anywhere other than NZ or Australia, you each have to shell out several thousand dollars before you even step foot in another country.
