Influences

Massive punk/hardcore influence from bands like Rise Against, Propagandhi, The Filaments, Hatebreed, Black Flag, so many I can't even name.

Metal is a staple - particularly weird stuff like Blut Aus Nord, Zeal & Ardor, Panopticon, and Soul Glo but also more "easy listening" stuff like Dorothy, Turnstile, and In Flames, to heavier/weirder stuff like WBTBWB, Alcest, Cradle of Filth, Misery Index, someone please stop me.

I also have a love for electronic music, like Alison Wonderland, Stonebank, Infected Mushroom, and many, many others.
