Kate Gentile Interview

Source: Heavy Metal Bebop Podcast.

Kate Gentile is a drummer-composer with a highly advanced and personal musical language. Trained in jazz from high school on, she began listening to metal in recent years and has since gravitated toward some of the more intense, outlandish areas of the underground. In this episode, she discusses a slew of her favorite death-metal bands — including Cenotaph, Defeated Sanity and Malignancy — the process of incorporating double-kick drumming into her jazz work, why Tony Williams’ playing was a revelation early on, what she admires about metal fandom and much more.
