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 Dirt Woman as they’ve been spending this time working on new songs.
What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?
We are taking this time to work on new songs, practice as much as possible, and prepare ourselves for when we can start to gig again.
Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?
The new Oranssi Pazuzu album is amazing, Lingua Ignota’s new single, Ulcerate, The new Slift album Ummon is absolutely killer, we got mentioned with those guys in a few random Facebook posts just because our albums came out within about two weeks of each other, even that minor association was super gratifying.
A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?
Kearny has been making Pizza rolls, Avery is hoping to do some baking but as of right now he’s sticking to his daily omelet, Zoe and Gabe started a garden and a compost pile.
In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?
Patti Smith’s book Just Kids, Leonard Cohen’s book Let Us Compare Mythologies, Star Trek deep space nine, a film called Fantastic Planet, it’s all animated through paper cutouts, there’s some of the weirdest environments ever conceived in science fiction. The 50 Year Sword, the Bill Hader show Barry, The My Favorite Murder podcast, Final Fantasy 7 remake.
What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?
While our leaders continue to drag their feet many of us are left with zero income, if you have the means to donate to local food pantries, animal shelters, homeless shelters, just look out for people who will be hit the hardest by this pandemic. This is the time to reach out to your local community, we are each other’s safety net. Also take this time to enrich yourself, learn a new skill, keep up on your mental health, and reach out to people who live alone or might be struggling.
