Band Interview Of The Day – Cthulhu Dreamt

  1. If could introduce yourselves for us, who are you?

I’m Reed, I write, arrange, sing and play guitar. We’ve got Jake in Utah who writes and plays guitar, Ben here in Minnesota who writes and plays keys. Nate who is also in Minnesota and writes, plays guitar and engineers. Last and not least is Chris in the UK who writes and plays keys.

  1. 2. How did you all meet?

I’ve been friends with Nate and Ben for a long time, and been writing professionally with Ben since we were at university together. Jake and Chris I met through social media, which is kinda bonkers to consider, but still rad nonetheless.

  1. How long have you been playing?

Cthulhu Dreamt has been active since Covid began, but each of us has been doing something musically or creatively for most of our lives.

  1. What three words would you use to describe the music you play?

Heavy diverse journey

  1. What are your musical influences?

We each have influences that inspire how we think and create, some of which include Gojira, Beethoven, Muse, Lamb of God, Hans Zimmer, and Opeth.

  1. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen during a show?

Rammstein… haha. Those guys put on a helluva show, but yeah, it can be a bit strange.

  1. Being away from the stages in the last few years, where was the first place you visited when the restrictions were lifted?

The first show I saw once bands started touring regularly again was Tool.

  1. What’s the one record you own but wouldn’t ever admit to owning?

I’m not ashamed of any of my albums. Something someone may be surprised to see in my collection might be Judy Garland.

  1. What have you been listening in the last few weeks?

The new Clutch songs from Sunrise on Slaughter Beach 

  1. Are there any releases you have planned in the near future?

We’ve got an EP coming out this fall called Precursor, which will run up into the next major chapter in the Cthulhu Dreamt story: The TTRPG.
