E18 John Heckathorn

Below you can find the full video podcast episode from our YouTube channel. To listen on all other platforms, click here.

On this episode I am joined by experimental US metal trumpeter, Mr. John Heckathorn. John is a rather intriguing individual with interesting thoughts and philosophy. This is profoundly reflected in his somewhat avant garde musical style, which fuses Progressive Metal with Classical & Jazz Trumpet. It’s safe to say that I certainly hadn’t heard anything quite like John’s music prior to listening to Antediluvian Projekt and I thoroughly recommend everyone to check it out – even if it’s just to see what you think of this very unusual musical style! John has an album and an EP out with Antediluvian Projekt with plenty more to come. Here I got to chat with him all about it, from his background, to his process, to his philosophy – and so much more! I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did having this conversation ❤️
