Picking yourself up off the canvas is never an easy thing. Losing a lead singer and band member is about the hardest thing a band can endure, nevermind losing a close friend. But, less than two years after the unfortunate passing of singer Mitch Lucker, Suicide Silence is back, unleashing a new record unto the world and starting their bold ascent back up the mountain. Here to share a few words about overcoming loss and starting again, is Mark Heylmun, on the road at Mayhem Fest.
M.DREW: I guess we’ll address the most sensitive topic first – how do you rebound after the passing of a bandmate?
Editor’s Note – As is always the rule with Mayhem Fest, one man can’t see it all. Any words you see below pertain only to those acts I saw, and anyone not mentioned is not an omission or a slight – I simply didn’t get to see them amidst running around for interview opportunities, photo ops and the like. C’est la vie.
