Hi Wylie, thanks for taking time out to talk to me. Can you tell us s little about Venona?
Sure, Venona is an espionage themed internet metal band comprised of two members, Myself from New York, and The vocalist Allen from Texas. We do songs about famous people, operations, or projects from espionage history. We try not to get super political and we more so try to act as musical historians.
That’s an interesting concept. How did this idea come about?
Thanks, I wanted to create something unique, obviously everyone has influences and you can here it in their music, but a lot of bands just have that sound where you hear it and instantly know who it is. I wanted to do that with Venona. I also wanted to write songs that don’t have parts that aren’t inspiring. A lot of bands have riffs that while they fit the song are just there to kill time and they don’t keep me pumped when I listen. I like my music to not only flow but for each part to make you have that “dude that’s sick” Moment.
