– « Okay, here’s the whole deal… Neil Peart was one of my faves in ’88 to ’90, until I stopped having any ambitions. What was I going to do? Was I going to play jazz or really fast? So I was listening to all this primitive stuff. That’s where my heart was. I hate playing guitar. I’m making old school riffs on a normal acoustic guitar. But if it sounds good on an acoustic guitar then it will rock when you put some fuzz on the fucker. »

– « It [the use of the phrase « fuck the world »] started when I was about 13. It was a crew I was with when I wrote graffiti. These guys were really crazy, and they hated people as much as I did, so I started using that as much as possible. I eventually got it tatooed on my back (just like they did), and it went from there. Bottom line, people suck. They’ve proved it time and time again, and they can all go fuck themselves. »

– « A ghoul is something that just eats corpses, where a zombie wants flesh. Living flesh. They eat people. Ghouls prey on corpses in graveyards. »

Citation: Danny Cavanagh, Anathema

– « All I can say is… I had a really fucked up time with drugs after Eternity [1996], and it was with LSD and magic mushrooms. You’ve heard what that can do to someone? Well that happened with me and it was a question of overcoming that and trying to help someone with that. Because when two people are really involved, they need each other and they respond to each other; they love each other very much but when one is an addict, either he gets himself straightened out or the other one becomes an addict. You know it’s mind games between people, and this is where I’m coming from in my songs. Like in « Barriers » [A Fine Day To Exit; 2001] I didn’t see what was happening. It’s an admission of guilt and being wrong, trying to find strength. I know I’m going crazy and going off on all this but I just want you to print all of this without editing any of it because it’s just me… »

Citation: Tad Doyle, TAD

– « Yeah! That’s just the best way I know of for pissing off parents. Right off the bat, nuts. Animal nuts! Why put a picture of a beautiful girl on a motorcycle on your album when you can show dog nuts? We all know that animals are cuter than humans, especially their nuts. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t love animal nuts, just enough to put them on an album cover! (Laughs) »

– « Moving to Montreal has been really hard because people from Montreal, the bands, were really like « go back to your home, leave Montreal to Montrealers » and it was really hard, […]. Oh man, even some bands were ripping off our posters from walls and stupid shit like that because everybody knew we sold 3000 demos and it was really frustrating for them. »

– « Drugs and success-induced lassitude aside, the sophomore slump is the result of the subtle but inevitable transformation of an artist’s postsuccess worldview or identity. They become self-aware and self-conscious, and the original spontaneity, innocence and naturalness that gave their early work so much confidence becomes more calculated, jaded and ironic. The artist may fall victim to the anxiety of influence, the sense that everything worth saying has been said before, every song has been written, and that all that remains of creativity is footnote and quotation. »
