With doomy riffs and the occasional classic metal moment, Alienatör don't stick to the noise rock playbook. The Canadian group recently expanded from a duo to a power trio, and the change has made them heavier and more rhythmically punchy.

I spoke with guitarist/vocalist Brad King about why Alienatör sounded like a four-piece when they were a duo, and how the band has changed since bassist Sean Skillen and drummer Simon Paquette joined. We also discussed how a government grant helped fund their latest album, Regrets, and why he strives to be a positive voice out of the North.

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