Stormruler's love for both black metal and fantasy colors their entire sound

Stormruler's love for both black metal and fantasy colors their entire sound

- By Matt Rushton

Jason Asberry and Jesse Schobel of St. Louis black metal duo Stormruler join KNOTFEST's Pulse of the Maggots ahead of their latest record.

They recount the early days of the band, why they play black metal, how well they write together, and what it was like to tour with Rotting Christ and Borknagar. They also share their thoughts as to why black metal gives them such an opportunity to weave in fantastical and epic tales any true nerd could be proud of.
