Kelly Shaefer of ATHEIST
Interviewed in Feb. 2000 by EvilG
Thanks to Nathan Robinson for helping out with the questions!
Atheist are one of the more influential yet under-rated technical death metal bands of the early 90’s. Unfortunately, the band dissolved in 1994 and now ten years after the band’s first release people are just starting to get it now. In the coming months Atheist’s three CD’s – Piece of Time (1989), Unquestionable Presence (1991) and Elements (1993) will be re-released. The vocalist for Atheist, Kelly Shaefer, recently spoke with with us at length concerning Atheist and to a lesser degree about his new band Neurotica which was formed in 1994 as a (then) side-project.
