ALL IS MIST AND FOG

 

 

 

NAME: Treelo Herrington

CURRENT BAND: Norse

INSTRUMENT: Lead Vocals and Guitar

PREVIOUS BANDS IF ANY: Nothing notable since being in NORSE for about seven years now.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB? I think I worked in like a fruit store when I was like 15 or 16.

HOW DID THE YOU COME UP WITH THE BAND'S NAME OF NORSE?

Me and my drummer Frog, and our old guitarist basically started the band around 2005 early 2006. At the time I think our guitarist was really influenced by a lot the Viking stuff and thats what he wanted to go with. But we have gone away from that sort of imagery and that sort of theme since then but just kept the name because everyone knew us by that name so we just kept it. Its cool.

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MUSICAL SOUND TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER HEARD YOU BEFORE?

Black Metal, Extreme, Fast, Heavy, you know that sort of stuff.

 

DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE VENUE YOU LIKE TO PERFORM IN?

The Factory, ranks pretty high.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG YOU LIKE TO PLAY?

Actually the opening track "Neglect" which is also the first track off our new album. That one's my favourite one to play at the moment because its gotta an easy, easy groove to fall back on, its not too extreme on the guitars so its not like I dont have to be extremly warmed up to jump into it and its easy to sing and rock out to you know and just get going.

 

WHAT IS THE FANS FAVOURITE THEY LIKE YOU TO PLAY?

I think everyones favourite song is a song called "Plague Whore". Umm although we didnt play it tonight (laughs) but I think they just like it because its probably our most extreme song.

 

HAVE YOU HAD ANY BIZARRE ITEMS THAT FANS HAVE GIVEN YOU OR ASKED TO BE SIGNED, AND WHAT WERE THEY?

Actually tonight as an album launch present I was given an original demo cassette from EMPEROR's 1991 "Wrath of the Tyrant", which was probably the best thing I have ever gotten off a fan ever and one of the coolest things I have ever gotten.

 

IF YOU WERE ARRESTED AND HAD TO HAND OVER THE CONTENTS OF YOUR POCKETS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

Mobile phone and ear plugs (laughs)..

 

WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY LISTENING TO IN YOUR MP3 PLAYER?

Good question I havent listened to music in a while, my own albums sometimes and Thorns I think, Thorns and Mayhem.

 

IF DOWN ON YOUR LUCK, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH YOUR LAST $20?

Probably get some Petrol I dont know.

 

IF YOU COULD LIVE IN ANY TIME FROM THE PAST, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Umm, Ummmmmm I dont know might go back in time to like the start of my life so I could like watch my own life over and see all the stupid shit I did again but watch it from the outside and like pay myself out for it.

 

IF YOU COULD HANG OUT WITH ANY PERSON, PAST OR PRESENT, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Maybe Vitek from DECAPITATED, met him when he was on tour 2007 in Australia, and he was a really really fucken cool guy and unfortunately a couple months later he died and yeah it would be really cool to see him again.

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY UNUSUAL HOBBIES?

I dont know what comes to mind man I dont know, nah I just play guitar and video games and go to work thats it (laughs).

 

IT IS DAWN AND WITH A BIG HANGOVER YOU FIND YOURSELF A PARTICIPANT IN A DUEL, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR WEAPON OF CHOICE?

A Lightsabre, probably work well... pretty sure thats the best weapon you can get (laughs)

 

FAVOURITE DRINK?

Sounds pretty lame but water (laughs)

 

DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO THE FANS OUT THERE?

Yeah fucken thanks for coming along tonight watching us and also Dark Funeral tonight, thanks for buying our album and fucken keep on rocking yeah.
