THE FAMINE Frontman Opens Up About His Faith In New Audio Interview

Kris McCaddon, lead singer and co-founder of the Dallas, Texas-based death metal band THE FAMINE, is featured on I Testify Online in an audio broadcast interview with Ivan Parrish. Listen to the chat at this location (Windows Media).

In the interview, Kris talks about his past with other bands such as EMBODIMENT and DEMON HUNTER. He reveals how he teamed up with ex-bandmates Andrew Godwin and Mark Garza from EMBODIMENT to form THE FAMINE. Kris McCaddon also opens up about his faith in Jesus Christ and explains why he and his bandmates made the decision not to make THE FAMINE a Christian-themes act.

THE FAMINE released its full-length debut, "The Raven and the Reaping", in May 2008 via Solid State Records. The CD was recorded with Andreas Magnusson (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, AGONY SCENE) and is described as "an album of urgent metal with plenty of chunky riffs; the music is at once blustery yet totally memorable.

"Our roots are in death metal and grindcore," McCaddon says. "But there is also this element about being from the South, like PANTERA, that translates. We have that Southern guitar metal sound. You can pick up on the Southern vibe. The songs are a little more structured, and we had never done that in the past. It's not an album just of riffs; we focused on structure and choruses and keeping things efficient. . . If SUFFOCATION was covering PANTERA songs, that's how THE FAMINE sounds."
