HI THERE THANKS FOR ANSWERING SOME QUESTIONS FOR US.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM/ PROJECT?
Hello, I'm Tony Pettry the founder and rhythm guitarist of Shattered. Our new album will be released in 2019 named SKINWALKER. Each song tells a story that leads to the next song as it continues throughout the album. This will be our best work so stay tuned.
WHAT INSPIRED ANY CENTRAL THEMES ON THE ALBUM?
Our vocalist Fred really came through on this album. We really don’t want to give away the theme to much but the title gives you a very good idea.
HOW LONG DID YOU SPEND RECORDING?
Shattered is about to wrap up writing so we will be recording very soon.
HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT THE SONGWRITING PROCESS?
Fred is passionate about his writing and we give him free reign. If he needs an idea we help out but Fred is pretty solid.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE TRACK FROM THE ALBUM?
I would say so far my favorite song is SKINWALKER at this moment. It has epic riffs and so going on during the song. Get ready for your mind to be blown.
WHO ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES?
My personal influences are King Diamond, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Danzig.
HOW DID YOU FORM THE BAND?
I was wanting to put my own ideas out there instead of joining a band and playing other peoples stuff and much heavier.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ANYONE STARTING OUT?
My best advice is make sure the members you choose are on the level. Any bad vibe trust your instincts and pass on that person no matter how good they are. Drug addicts and alcoholics never work out either even if you think they might be ok.
WHAT IS NEXT? Shattered is going to start recording and get this album done followed by a tour.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD – I would like to say thank you very much for having us and thank you to the fans that follow us. \m/
