Metal Inside(r) Home Quarantine is Metal Insider’s new column during this time of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We asked artists five questions on what’s been keeping them busy ranging from their favorite movies, food they’ve been eating, music they’ve been listening to and more. We caught up with Crawling Manifest’s Andrew Gladu (vocals/bass/drums) as he’s been spending this time playing Dungeons and Dragons.
What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?
During the beginning of the lockdown I really got into an older habit of mine, playing Dungeons and Dragons. At the very least it gave me people to talk to regularly enough that I didn’t feel like I was completely alone when I couldn’t go anywhere haha.
Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?
My absolute favorite album to come out of 2020 has been the Lamb of God self-titled album. That shit hits hard and I have definitely had it on repeat.
A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?
This last year really turned me into a self-proclaimed gourmet chef haha. My favorite thing that I’ve been able to figure out during this was how to cook a really good steak.
In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?
All of this has definitely rekindled a few old loves of mine, which absolutely includes World of Warcraft and a whole lot of anime haha.
What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?
We’re almost to the end. Keep pushing, get vaccinated, and get ready to fucking thrash again.
