With their eighth album fresh off the press and full of major hits, we put our hand up to grab some time with vocalist Johannes Eckerström of Avatar! Hunter Gatherer scored a whopping 9/10 from our reviewer Gareth Williams who said, ‘It’s hard and heavy, dripping with emotion and anguish, and quite possibly the best music Avatar have ever released.’ (Read our review here) So, hell yes we wanted to talk to these guys.
With it being his first ever Australian interview, Johannes chatted about turning back to the heavy heavy after Avatar Country, how he thinks music recorded live in the studio is better, and cooking delicious gnocci. Sorry, I forgot to ask for recipe tips.
