Emmure originally hails from New Fairfield, Connecticut, where they formed in 2003. However since then the metalcore band has moved to the city of Queens, New York. Emmure has a total of seven releases, with their first public release being a 2006 EP entitled ‘The Complete Guide to Needlework.’ Though they originally started with a metalcore sound the band has been described using several different genres over the years including deathcore, nu metal, and alternative metal. The band also uses some pop culture themes within their lyrical content referring to comics, and video games while also touching on the subject matter of breakups, social indifference, philosophy, and religion. The bands most recent release is 2017’s ‘Look at Yourself’ which included the much talked about singles “Russian Hotel Aftermath,” and “Torch.”
Frankie Palmeri, vocalist for Emmure, is the guest on this episode of the BREWtally Speaking Podcast! Frankie joins hosts Dan and Jon to discuss a myriad of topics ranging from Frankie’s recent foray into the podcast realm to the worlds dependency on technology. They get pretty trippy on this topic and even talk a bit about how the rest of the world views the U.S. He touches on government conspiracies saying “It’s part of the whole program to get us into one complete hive mind so they can have complete control over our thoughts and behavior. The more control they have over us, the easier we are to kinda sift through. Figure out who’s a problem and who’s not. It you don’t believe that, if you don’t think there is a world conspiracy towards that….I think you’re completely stuck in the sauce, and you have no idea what the fuck is going on.” We also get into a bit about the upcoming Static-X reunion tour/album news and SO MUCH MORE. Emmure was a support act on one of the final Static-X tours prior to vocalist/guitarist Wayne Static’s death. Frankie stated “If you were to ask me my feelings on the whole idea of them touring without Wayne….I think it’s just crazy. There must be some really bad blood for them to wanna do that.” He also adds: “There was no one from the band there. No one that was a part of Static X was at his memorial show. There’s no way there was any closure there. So I think that doing the tour and the album without him is just a huge ‘fuck you’ to him probably. That’s what it feels like. It’s very obvious it’s a cash grab, but you can’t get mad at that. It just is what it is.”
