In this episode Bill talks with Arash of the Iranian Metal Revolutionaries, TarantisT.
We talk about growing up under the religious tyranny of the Iranian Government, how playing electric guitar and metal music could have been a death sentence, sneaking around to play music in underground basements, having to file paperwork with the morality police to play a show, how good the people here in the United States truly have it, how myspace and metal saved their lives, and what the transition has been like now living in the United States of America.
We also discuss what it was like getting to share a stage with musicians they risked their lives listening to back home such as Metallica, why he feels they haven’t gotten as many opportunities in the music industry now that they have been here for awhile, we also talk about the Murder of the young Iranian woman Mahsa Amini by the current regime, the protests and deaths that have followed, how it’s inspired their latest single Revolution, thoughts on not only the Big Tech and Media silence on these protests but also from their fellow musicians here in the states, plus so much more.
