On this episode I am joined by the sensational Paraguayan metal star Mr. Adrian Benegas – fresh off the back of his latest release ‘Arcanum’, a mind blowing concept album featuring such powerhouse performers as Ronnie Romero & Timo Somers.

Adrian is a fascinating individual, a natural creative spirit with a wild imagination and flair for the dramatic. His immense capacity for conjuring musical worlds of grandeur and mythos manifests itself into truly some of the most compelling music throughout the landscape of modern metal.

Discussing Adrian’s approach in this episode was a particularly enthralling experience, as he very much approaches creating as a conduit, entering a flow state where he shuts off his rational mind and purely channels the creative impulse that comes through him.

Of course later he can approach it more rationally in the crafting stage, as he refines the piece. But the initial idea comes from a trance like state in which he is completely detached. The moment can strike at any time and he lives in service to it.

We also discussed lots of other great topics, such as intertwining personal narratives in metaphorical storytelling, what it’s like for Adrian to work with his hero’s (and some of the biggest names in the space), what life and the metal scene is like in Paraguay, and of course Adrian’s musical journey from beginning up until now. 

This was a truly enjoyable episode for me and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of listening. Be sure to let us know what you think!
