Currently heating up stages on their support tour for Snot, Kayden of Thira talked with National Rock Review during their stop at The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan.

Thira has made a splash in the underground metal scene with a unique sound they like to call Industrial Groove Metal. Bringing an intense Steampunk based live show, they hit heavy with odd time signatures, heavy grooves, melody balanced with harsh industrial elements, and a light show which fans are bound to never forget.

Shortly before taking the stage, singer Kayden sat down with Erik Heemsoth of National Rock Review on what was to be the last night of their tour with Snot. They spoke about the evolution of Thira, Kayden’s Michigan roots, the meaning of Industrial Groove Metal, bands they are influenced by, their previous partnership with Roeller’s Custom Guitars, their successful IndieGoGo campaign, touring, hitting the road with Mushroomhead, and what’s in store for the future.
