Thrones - Day Late, Dollar Short

Joe Preston has been important for so many different things that I love in metal. He has played with Earth, Melvins, Harvey Milk, Sunn O))), High On Fire… it's mental, when you think about it. When people talk about Joe Preston, it's often as the guy that no one can keep in their band because apparently he's a complete dick, but maybe that's just because he's so good. He's really underrated as an electronic musician. When you listen to some of the synth and drum programming parts on Thrones albums and his vocoder work… it's amazing, man.
