Metal To The Masses 2022 Interviews: SOIM (Heat #6 14.05.22)

Interview With SoIM By Matt Bladen

MoM: Introduce yourselves/remind everyone who you guys are. Band name, members, style etc?

SoIM: SoIM (formally Sounds of Insane Music). Progressive extreme metal. Most remember me as the masked guy playing on stage with a very pointy 8 string on his own.

MoM: How have the last year(s) been for the band? What have you been up too?

SoIM: Last few years have been a challenge all honesty with the lack of gigs and such thanks to pandemic. Been using the time to write more (music and lyrics so expect a couple more songs with vocals in May than are normally in a SoIM set, that is a promise not just a threat), and trying to find members for the live band.

MoM: What experience have you had with Bloodstock/M2TM in the past?

SoIM: As Soim I have been entering M2TM since I started gigging, so since 2016. Each time has been a fun as hell show to play. Killer crowds and killer bands to play alongside. And with a few cases been emotional as well seeing mates of mine winning and thus then seeing them play bloodstock. Kind of keeps me in mindset to return each time it comes around no matter my personal outcome the previous years.

MoM; How are you feeling entering the M2TM format back as it should be? Playing in front of a crowd again?

SoIM: I’m looking forward to being part of it again. Since the return of live music, I’ve done a few shows already so the stage nerves have gone back to where they were before, in the trash can in the dark basement. So for this they won’t be an issue for me.

MoM: What would it mean to you to play Bloodstock?

SoIM: Pretty simple, a major personal goal achieved.

MoM: Tell us two truths and one lie about the band?


1.Started Soim because I was writing stuff on my 8 string that wasn’t usable in band I was in at the time and didn’t want to waste the riffs

2. Original Name for Soim was ‘Evisceration Steel’

3. Started Soim with the intention of it being a solo project.

MoM: Finally give us a four word rundown of what to expect?

SoIM: Crazy Man In Mask
