This conversation took place April 17th, 2020, MYT.

Though they have members of power violence heroes Weekend Nachos and a name taken from a Godflesh song, the hearts of Like Rats are very much in the late Eighties/early Nineties era of death metal. The Chicago band excels at writing songs that are immediate, as well as bone crushingly heavy.

I spoke with Like Rats guitarist Todd Nief about his approach to songwriting, his musical influences, and the latest Like Rats album, Death Monolith. We also discussed Todd's own podcast, Todd Nief's Show.

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