“All these years it’s a weird. Music is my passion, but I don’t like music really. I really don’t. I don’t think music is great. There are a few bands I have enjoyed in my life. I think music is boring. Music sucks. New music sucks. What I do I like making music I like to hear. I write something l would like to listen to again. I really don’t know what is captivating at the moment. I don’t listen to new music. I try not to get influenced by another band or source. I write a thing that in my head sounds good. There are no boundaries to music now days.”

Scholz did say what influences the band.
“To me it comes from emotions,” he said. “It’s hard to explain. I can’t say I am influenced by a band, subconsciously. My inspiration comes from my feeling or taking out frustration and things that have happened in my life. I am influenced by movies and soundtracks. I enjoy films a lot.
