A Dirty Dozen (almost) with SEAN PECK of THE THREE TREMORS – December 2018

| 5 December 2018 | Reply

According to a recent press release: “Three of metal’s greatest vocalists – Tim “Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, DIO DISCIPLES), Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin (JAG PANZER, SATAN’S HOST, TITAN FORCE), and Sean “The Hell Destroyer” Peck (CAGE, DENNER/SHERMANN, DEATH DEALER) – have united as the Three Tremors, and are releasing their much-anticipated self-titled debut on January 18, 2019. The album will include twelve original songs total (over 60 minutes of music), and features all three singers on every track. A blend of songs that cover all the different heavy metal styles, the album features some of the most incredible metal vocal performances ever put to tape.” We get Sean Peck to discuss new music, influences, and much more…

1. Tell us a little about your latest release.  What might a fan or listener not grab the first or second time they listen through?  Are there any hidden nuggets the band put in the material or that only diehard fans might find?

This album has so many killer vocal layers every time through the record is a new experience.  There is a ton of vocal and guitar nuances to discover.

2. What got you into music, and can you tell us about the moment you realized you wanted to be a musician?

When I discovered the magic and power of heavy metal music I knew I wanted to perform. Learning guitar seemed like waaay too much work so I decided I would just become the worlds greatest heavy metal singer and the rest is history. Ozzy Osbourne’s song “You Can’t Kill Rock And Roll” was the song that opened my eyes.

3. Building on that, is there a specific song, album, performer, or live show that guided your musical taste?

Yeah that Ozzy song and the Judas Priest’s Defenders Of The Faith album and I was cursed for life! I am sure I will be 134 years old just a head in a glass liquid chamber still barely alive and my musical preference won’t change.

4. Who would be your main five musical influences?

Judas Priest. Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Crimson Glory, and maybe something like Dokken.

5. If you could call in any one collaborator to do a song with, who would it be, and why?

Wow that is a gnarly question. I would have to say someone from Judas Priest, Halford, KK or Glen Tipton.

6. How would you describe your music to someone who’d never listened to you before? What is the one comparison a reviewer or fan has made that made you cringe or you disagreed with?

Most reviewers have been spot on and get it.  This is classic heavy metal with lots of power, thrash and speed mixed in. The vocals harken back to the glory days so some might call it 80’s metal but as long as the songs are good, this will stand the test of time and timeless music is what I am all about.  This album has 3 of the most powerful vocalists alive on it it is a unique very special thing.

7. What’s the best thing about being a musician?

Well this form of art you actually get to read reviews on your stuff and get feedback and critical praise which is very rewarding. A painter doesn’t get to get anything like that. An actor maybe gets a little but it is just on the movie mostly so the fact that we create a piece of art and we get to feel the live response of the crowd to the songs and written reaction to the creation makes it very satisfying.

8. When the band are all hanging out together, who cooks; who gets the drinks in; and who is first to crack out the acoustic guitars for a singalong?

Nobody cooks, The younger dudes are always the first to start the drinks going Casey, Sean and Alex. No one wants to sing because we are doing like 11 in a row sometimes so every vocal note is precious.

9. If you weren’t a musician, what would be your dream job?

I actually have a real dream job of sorts in real estate but another choice might be a game show host or stand up comedian.

10. Looking back over your career, is there a single moment or situation you feel was a misstep or you would like to have a “do over”, even if it didn’t change your current situation?

Yeah we really should have toured Europe earlier and hammered it. I am referring to my band Cage. We had a hot buzz and if we would have crammed it back then we would probably be huge!

11. If you could magically go back in time and be a part of the recording sessions for any one record in history, which would you choose – and what does that record mean to you?

I would say Painkiller or Defenders Of The Faith.  Both of those records essentially changed my life.  Look at me now.  Its like 80 degrees out and I am wearing a studded leather jacket.  Some things are just meant to be!
