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 Great American Ghost frontman Ethan Harrison as he’s been spending this time catching up on podcasts about serial killers and making vegan pulled “pork” fried rice. 


What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?

Working! Apparently, I’m essential. Not to brag, but I have been working every day doing construction of new housing. For money, not for charity.


Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?

I have been listening to lots of podcasts. Mostly politically based podcasts and podcasts about serial killers. That’s my every day in these strange times.


A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?

I’m for sure not making bread. Fucking baking. I have been making random dishes out of things I find in my refrigerator. This week I made Vegan Kimchi and (vegan) pulled pork fried rice. I could write an entire article about how sick it was.


In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?

I made a list of movies that I haven’t seen before and I have been trying to power through it. Spirited Away was weird.


What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?

Take care of your mental health. Talk to someone if you need to. This time is extremely trying for everyone and you don’t have to be isolated completely.
