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 guitarist Kane Roberts as he’s been spending this time going outside as much as possible.


What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?

I’ve never been an obeyer but out of respect for others I do wear a mask etc. The BOOT ON THE NECK LOCKDOWN fortunately came at a time where I can workout at my home gym and continue my studio work relatively uninterrupted. I go out as much as possible. Drive up the coast, go for a run, hit a hiking trail etc. Trying not to stare at my computer and phone until my head explodes! Also, I’ve been working on some projects that will enable band performances that reach a wide audience online.


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

My current TOP 10: Arch Enemy, Volbeat, Doyle, Alice Cooper, Five Finger Death Punch, Billie Eilish, Slipknot, Battle Beast, Lzzy Hale, Steve Vai and some Tool for good measure. HUNGRY FOR LIVE SHOWS!


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 make a lot of rice bowls and I admit I order massive amounts of TAKEOUT lol. Knocking down my usual workout supplements provided by Ghost and Optimal Nutrition. Been adding a range of kick ass Vegan meals to my diet.


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

GAMES: Big UNCHARTED fan. I’m gonna get the next PS System and Zelda on the Nintendo Switch makes me want to buy the platform.

MOVIES: Under the Skin (Scarlett Johansen), A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (strange but awesome vampire horror film).


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

Time to get SHARKLIKE about your future because things are gonna be different. I think you and I can create new things and find a better way than before. It’s good to be careful but sitting, head down, in your home waiting for permission to go out ain’t gonna cut it for too much longer AM I RIGHT?. So in the meantime – LET THE DOGS OUT! BAKE A NEW CAKE! INVENT YOUR WAY OUT OF THIS FUCKING MESS! ; )
