Posted by on July 17, 2020


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 I AM vocalist Andrew Hileman as he’s been spending this time starting his own business.


What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?

Actually, I’ve been doing a lot since this happened. Just workin on motorcycles, I’ve actually stayed working and have been in the process of starting my own business so it’s been pretty hectic around here. Obviously working on the new album and prepping for an insane release with it.


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

A lot of country if anyone’s into that check out John R Miller, Colter Wall, Vincent Neil Emerson, and Charley Crockett. Heavier side a lot of Black Sabbath, Turnstile, Orthodox’s new album is badass. 


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

Southern “chicken” noodle soup. Put chicken broth, potatoes, corn, carrots, jalapeños, chicken, creole and knorr tomato seasoning. Shit’s badass


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

Been revisiting some older movies lately, Kill Bill series, Predator, Rambo series. Larry Clark movies which are intense like, Kids, Bully, Wassup Rockers. Not really into games, I still have like the first generation Xbox 360.


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

Be patient, be safe. We’re workin hard to give y’all our best release so just give it some time. This quarantine has given us more time to be creative and it’ll definitely show.
