Figure ft. Dack Janiels “Dr. Death”
“Dr. Death is the name of my lead single and main character from my new album, The Asylum, so I had to give that twisted fuck some lovin’.”
Harley Poe “The Hearse Song”
“‘The Hearse Song’ is by a band called Harley Poe, and they are actually from Indiana. The song is based off a poem from the Scary Stories to tell in the Dark series that we all grew up with. Their band is all horror based, so it’s like if I had a dark punk folk band.”
“Mastadon’s ‘Machete’ track is such, such, such a banger. I have like five different double drops I switch in and out of with it during my sets. Plus, the Machete movies are amazing and Danny Trejo is the homie!”
Figure “Friday the 13th” (Dmise Remix)
“Dmise’s remix of my ‘Friday the 13th’ track gave a massive breath of fresh air to what I consider one of my most classic Monster tracks, all while keeping the vibe of the original.”
And Last but not least, it’s a tie between The Misfits and Slayer tracks. I grew up on both bands and credit them for influencing my music and general mind set more than anything in the modern music era.
