Javier: Is Dead Skin Mask your first and only project?
Mykill: Yes and no. We (Dead Skin Mask) are about to start on our own songs. DSM is, at least for now, only one. I have another one I’m currently assembling called Self Bias Resistor. Obviously, it is a FEAR FACTORY tribute. Vocals are what I’ll do in that one. As for my first, no. I wasted allot of time in another useless endeavor. But something good came out of that last nightmare, I found Romeo (DSM vocals) towards latter part of it. With out him, this (DSM) would probably not have done one show, yet. Funny how sometimes good can come from a very bad situation.
Javier: Do you stay in touch with past band-mates?
Mykill: … About a year ago I talked with Bryan, back in Connecticut, from Lost Soul…
Javier: Aside from Bostaph and Lombardo, who made you want to pick up a pair of sticks?
Mykill: Wow, there are allot. Probably first drummer I noticed, as a young kid, was Ron Bushy from Iron Butterfly. Around that same time I discovered Ringo Starr. Years later, when I was 12, Alex Van Halen found my ear. I used to see Buddy Rich on The Tonight Show when I would be awake late. He amazed me! He still does. Also Stewart Copeland was very interesting to me. These were drummers that forged my desire to become one myself. Once I heard Slayer, well, I found an unheard of speed that captivated me. There are so many more. Even today, I still find new drummers that awe me.
Javier: The last one, tell me about this cd.
Mykill: Sure, 4 maybe 5 songs, out in 2005, clips will be on site, also in 2005, (http://www.deadskinmask.com) before it (cd) is released.
Look for Dead Skin Mask, Slayer tribute band. They are very fast and very good.
