We spoke with Sleep Signals vocalist Robert Cosgrove, over the phone recently, check out the interview below.

On three albums that were really influential.

“In my writing, I think I definitely would have to go back it would be hard for me to choose an album specifically but you know like most of the Metallica catalog, you know that’s what I that’s what I you know, first started playing on guitar. That was the first, you know first band I ever saw a live, you know it was the first band that uh. it really honestly was the band that got me playing guitar and uh you know singing rock and metal kind of stuff. Um It would be hard for me to pick one specific album but you know I probably have to go with like probably “Ride the Lightning” or “And Justice For All” for all maybe and then I think you know when I started to get more into the metal core kind of stuff. Um I think uh “Waking the Fallen” from Avenged Sevenfold that was you know a really big influential one for me. Um. And probably Shadows Fall. I think that would be another good one for me. You know as far as guitar writing and stuff like that or maybe In Flames, “Colony” or “Clayman” really big into the Gothenburg sound kind of stuff too. I would say that you know as far as the album’s question goes, it’s probably like my top three.”

 

On the early Orange County metalcore scene…

“I love Bleeding Through. I put a lot of influence guitar writing wise from the early 2000 Metal Scenes from Orange County. So, like you’re Bleeding Through, Atreyu, Eighteen Visions, all those bands definitely got a lot of influence from those bands.”
