I'm sure you've probably been asked this question a million times. Being a musician and a lover of all things brutal it wasn't until a little later after I started playing guitar that I discovered heavy metal as a genre. What type of influences do you have outside of the metal genre and how has it helped or influenced your writing when it comes to metal? For example I've never been a shredder my bluesy southern rock roots come out in my soloing, even in metal.

I don't really have influences outside of the metal genre but as a kid I loved nwa, public enemy, nas, etc so maybe as far as cadence or word play they have had a sub-conscious influence? i dunno
