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 Songs of Petrichor as they’ve been spending this time reconnecting with friends and family.
What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?
Reading, watching documentaries, exploring music all over the world, reconnecting with friends and family.
Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?
Hours of music daily: deep listening and as well as while driving. I’ve been listening to a lot of different genres from Metal to Opera, Jazz to World Music.
A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?
Oh, slow-cooked recipes. They taste better, and despite taking hours to auto-prepare, but in reality, you save a lot of time as you just have to spend a bit of time preparing the ingredients.
In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?
A lot of different movies, including international cinema. Films have been a regular event before the Pandemic.Alice in Borderland, Sinner, New Amsterdam, Chef’s Table, Street Food, Mindhunter have been memorable TV shows. As for books I enjoy reading Steven Pinker, Arundhati Roy, Richard Thaler, Tarun Khanna, Jared Diamond. Ghosts of Tsushima is an excellent unconventional video game, an open world of adventure.
What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?
Let’s use this time well to reconnect with ourselves and those that matter, and let’s explore meaningful Art.
