Fall Of Troy's Thomas Erak talks influences and new album plans
For the uninitiated, The Fall Of Troy are a three-piece alternative rock band from Washington State that combine power and melody with a ferociously progressive mindset, with blazing guitar lines snaking around unpredictable time signatures.
Backstage at Download 2008, MusicRadar caught up with Fall Of Troy singer and guitarist Thomas Erak. Fresh from a triumphant, explosive set, Erak took the time out to discuss the band's plans for their next album, his favourite gear and also reveal some of the influences that have shaped his playing, both on guitar and keyboards.
