Snowy Shaw

Prolific multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (King Diamond, Therion, Dream Evil, and many others) will be releasing his debut solo album, White Is The New Black, next month on his own label, Wunderwurld Music. I sat down to talk with Snowy about that (in our own separate, respective houses, at different times and through e-mail).

SSUS: Howdy. Thank you for taking the time to talk to us here at Metal Storm.

Snowy Shaw: Hey there -

SSUS: After all these years, you have dozens of recordings with as many artists to your name, yet White Is The New Black will be the first studio album you've released under your own name as a solo artist. What drove you to embark on a solo mission at this particular point in time?

SSUS: Howdy, and thank you for sharing your time with us at Metal Storm.

I enjoyed your comment on the hardships surrounding the recording process of Exile Amongst The Ruins that "It all adds to making the music what it is - and if it was easy, we'd be a power metal band, right? Strife is life." That strife does show in the darkness of Primordial's music; from where else do you take influence for Primordial, other than suboptimal recording conditions (and aside from musical influences)?
