Left Cross don't need a convoluted introduction - they play death metal, pure and simple. And though the Richmond band have only been together since 2015, they already have two full lengths and several EPs to their name.

I spoke with Left Cross bassist/vocalist Wes Warren about how the band came together, and why they write songs in the practice room together. We also discussed the band's musical progression on their second album Upon Desecrated Altars, and how they were able to get the recording done so quickly.

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