Reverbnation Winner – Man Bites Zombie – Apocalypse Rock

Interviews Music

reverbnationArtistic Echoes recently had the pleasure of interviewing Reverbnation Competition winners Man Bites Zombie 

Are you fans of the walking dead or more classic zombie movies? 

First few seasons were great but it did seem to lose its way a bit. More fans of the classic romero flicks. Quite looking forward to the spin off ‘Fear the walking dead’. 

Zombies are often used as an allegory for certain human conditions like they go to the mall in old 70s movies as humans are attracted to the mall is there any hidden meaning or is it just an excuse to dress up and have a laugh? 

We like the social commentary of Romero, and like to think each of our songs tells it’s own little story. As a society we’ve become too dependent on commercialism, it’s fun to write songs that explore the breakdown of social structures. That said we do love to dress up and spit blood at people.
