Landmine Marathon Want to ‘Burn Your Ears’ and ‘Liquefy Your Brain’
“We hope to play music that will turn your face inside out, make your ears go up in flames, cause your heart to detonate and liquefy your brain.” That’s how Landmine Marathon frontgoddess Grace Perry descriptively summed up her band to Noisecreep. Most metalheads are masochists who like that kind of pain, so get ready to have your brain turned into a pile of useless mush when the band’s latest effort, ‘Sovereign Descent,’ descends on the metal community on March 16.
Perry is known as a bit of a monster on stage and on record, but she doesn’t do anything to prepare her voice for performing or recording. She just goes out there and nails it. “People hate me for saying this, but I honestly do nothing,” Perry said. “No tea, no preps. And I have never blown out my voice.” Sounds like this girl is blessed with a gift and incredible control.
Landmine Marathon formed when bassist Matt Martinez saw Perry screaming in another band. “He asked me if I would like to start a metal band. Of course I said ‘yes,’” Perry admitted.
The metal world needs more girls like Grace Perry populating it.
