25:01 Download April 10th

“It’s incredible, man” is how Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills responded to touring with Metallica. That’s the last time he was in the Detroit area when that tour played Ford Field. Well, he’s coming back this weekend to sign autographs and take photos with fans at Astronomicon. That happens in Livonia, Michigan April 12-14th at the Burton Manor.

He recalled the first show he saw from the Metal Legends back in Boston. He said they treat the band very well on tour. They have more Metallica dates left with them this year. “It’s going to be quite a summer”

He told me the band is always writing and visual aspects for the band. “We’re constantly in creative mode”

“Never” is how he answered the question of if he ever gets pushback for “using” some famous horror movie characters. He said he’s become friends with some of the people responsible for these films and Ice Nine Kills is helping to promote the movies. I’m a horror fan so we did talk about some of the latest ones out right now. He also told me what sparked his love of the genre.

Believe it or not, even though they’re from the same part of the country, he’s never met Rob Zombie. He spoke to the love he has for his movies. “I think some of the stuff he does is truly brilliant”.

Guitarist, Doc Coyle told me to ask him about the tuxedo place they get their suits from. He spoke to how Doc has stepped in and helped the band out. “He’s an incredibly talented guy, and it was so good to have him out”

Spencer’s appearance is sponsored by Rock City Music Company in Livonia.
