When asked about the rights to use The Three Tremors moniker
Ripper- "It was talked about being done before by the Halford, Tate and Bruce but nothing was ever being done. The name was not even taken or registered so now we own the name. Sean registered it."
Sean Peck- "It was an urban legend and it would have been great if the original guys Rob Halford, Geoff Tate and Bruce Dickinson would have done it. So I was sitting there thinking if they are not going to do it, then I want to do it with two of the best guys that I can think of in metal and put out a power house record. We have been working on this in secrecy for 5 years. It's like resurrecting the idea that but actually doing it. ":
When asked about the recording of the album and the musical direction
Harry Conklin- "They gave me all the songs and they gave me license to put my style of music on it, they gave me a chance to be creative on music and it was an honour to be part of this Three Tremors thing."
Ripper- "The style on the record is mainly straight forward, the vocals are in your face with a lot of highs. It's for the old school metal fans. I even attacked it a little different vocal wise I used more of a Metal Church/ AC/DC voice."
Sean Peck- "It's got thrash and classic Heavy Metal with a lot of good hooks."
Harry Conklin - "The music is moody and has lots of passion in each song."
When asked when they go on tour will they be playing songs from each others catalog
Harry Conklin - "There is going to be lots of surprises. Yes were are going to bring a little bit of our personal past into the show so people can connect to who we are and we also want to showcase our abilities of what we have done in the past. 90% of the show will be doing songs off the debut album. it's a high energy show its almost 2 hours in length. Some songs we share and some songs we don't. We will be doing songs we also like that we think fit in the set list that are not our own, pay homage to our heroes."
When asked Ripper how this compares to the recent Trinity project with Blaze and Tate
"It's different cause we went into the three tremors recording a record, not just putting a tour together like in Trinity. The idea of the Trinity was just getting out there and touring and maybe someday record some music. This was dome to make a record first and foremost playing 90% of the new material."
When asked about more touring
Sean Peck- "After Europe, we are looking at Australia, Japan USA and Canada."
The Three Tremors are having a cd listening party at Battlemage Brewery (2870 Scott St #102, Vista, CA 92081) on Friday, September 7th that is free and open to the public, and will be the first time that the entire self -titled debut album will be played for the public. The event will be attended by the entire band, including Tim “Ripper” Owens, Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin, and Sean “The Hell Destroyer” Peck (the event begins at 7pm, while the CD listening will be at 8pm). The band will also discuss each song, and host a question and answer session. Sean Peck said “We wanted a really cool place to host this event and Battlemage Brewery is as metal a place as you can get! The place has incredible craft beers, swords and weapons all over the walls, the play metal over the PA system all day and night long, and there’s all kinds of gaming going on.” This will be the first opportunity to meet the band and hear this heavy slab of apocalyptic speed metal that KNAC.COM calls “ One of the all-time great power metal albums!”
