Winterun drummer Joel Schneidruk has taken 5.
What instrument/s do you play?
I attempt (badly at times) to play the drums.
How would you describe the band’s sound?
Heavy without being thrashy, definitely not stoner rock.
How do you feel about the live music scene?
Over ten years ago when we started, Melbourne WAS the new Seattle, now every band in Melbourne is battling for the little stage time that is available in Melbourne. 11 venues that we played have closed since Winterun have been around, maybe that’s saying something?
What are your fondest musical memories?
Hearing Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ and becoming a music lover.
Hearing ‘Siamese Dream’ by Smashing Pumpkins and wanting to play the drums.
Anything you might be able to share about the new self-titled album?
What you hear is what you get, it’s Winterun right there.
