<span style="color:orange;font-weight:bold;">Who are your biggest musical influences?</span>
I love Meshuggah and Sikth but at the moment I have been listening to a lot of Telefon Tel Aviv, Jaga Jazzist, Hiromi, Accelerated Evolution era Devin Townsend, Allan Holdsworth and On The Virg.
<span style="color:orange;font-weight:bold;"> For those who haven't yet heard your song, describe "Breeze" in seven words or less:</span>
Simple and catchy melodic rock by Bulb.
<span style="color:orange;font-weight:bold;">What was the writing process like for "Breeze"?</span>
I had just been jamming on the first main riff for a bit, and that led to the second riff, but I sat on those for a while before tracking; when I tracked those the rest sorta just fell into place and before I knew it the song was done! I wish writing every song would be as straightforward and unstressful as that!

I actually think this might end up as a Periphery track as a weird experiment, but we will see!!
<span style="color:orange;font-weight:bold;">Did the song turn out as you'd envisioned it?</span>
Yeah, surprisingly it pretty much did, because that very rarely happens, for better or for worse!
<span style="color:orange;font-weight:bold;">What gear was used for the recording of "Breeze"?</span>
For guitars I used my Blackmachine B6 and Axefx Ultra
For bass I used my Schecter Stiletto and Podx3
All recorded direct to a Presonus Firepod in Nuendo.
Drums are Superior 2.0
