The London-based band Lychgate are difficult to categorize. Their avant-garde death/black metal draws from influences as diverse as Emperor and Radiohead, as well as classical music and the films of Fritz Lang.

I spoke to Lychgate's founder and main songwriter James Young about the band's history and unique style. We also discussed the writing and recording of their soon-to-be released EP Also Sprach Futura - giving me an opportunity to mispronounce both the name of the EP and the label that's releasing it.

My thanks to James for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
