Who are your musical influences?
A: Musical influences range from Periphery, Meshuggah, Tesseract, Humanity’s Last Breath. Anything with mad grooves!
Where did the name of the project come from?
A: The name Aural Decay was inspired by the project’s sound, dark and heavy. I also had a perforated ear drum around the time of beginning to work on the project, so it was quite fitting…
In your opinion, how is this project different from all the other bands out there?
A: The project combines a wide array of influence from various progressive metal/metalcore artists to create a unique and powerful sound that is both atmospheric and frenetic!
If a deaf person were to ask you to describe the sound of your music, how would you describe it?
