The co-vocalist and guitarist of Puscifer, Carina Round has made some surprising statements related to the legendary frontman of Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer, Maynard James Keenan, during the latest interview she has given about their upcoming album.
As you might recall, the supergroup Puscifer, leading by Keenan, has returned to music after 5 years of silence with the great news that they’re going to release their long-awaited album, ‘Existential Reckoning,’ on October 30, 2020.
The band, who has shared the tracklist of their fourth studio album and stated that it’s available on pre-sale, released two songs from the album, ‘Apocalyptical‘ and ‘The Underwhelming‘ in the previous months.
In their most recent conversation with Kerrang!, the band members have revealed what was in their minds while creating the songs and style of the album. They’ve also talked about what they think of each other.
Referring to the interview of Maynard from 2018, in which he said he enjoyed the closest mental connection with Carina Round and Mat Mitchell from the band, the interviewer asked Round what’s her honest opinion about Keenan.
The talented musician, Carina Round, admitted that she’s the opposite kind of artist to Maynard. She continued and said she’s the type of musician Maynard James Keenan wants to slap, who has to wait to be inspired.
Here’s what Carina Round said during the interview:
“If I had to pick it apart and give you actual traits, I don’t think I could. It’s like a good guacamole – you eyeball it and it turns out well, but on a bad day it doesn’t.
I’m the opposite kind of artist to Maynard. I’m the kind of artist he wants to slap, who has to wait to be inspired, while he’ll say: ‘Now it’s time to write lyrics’ and go sit in his truck to do it.
Thankfully we were making the record, otherwise I think I would have completely lost my marbles.”
