Willamette Week: Pickles, what are your thoughts on Wisconsin's groundbreaking election results?
Pickles: The best politicians are gay, out-of-the-closet politicians. You don't want some closeted guy jacking off some dude in an airport bathroom and then turning around and supporting some ridiculous drug law because he feels like he's got to overcompensate because he's hiding something. I mean, come out of the closet and be gay already. Dethklok don't care!
Nathan, what advice do you have for kids who want to achieve your gravel-pit tone?
Nathan Explosion: I'm no expert, but I know what doesn't work: eating paint, eating a rock, eating broken glass, eating sandpaper, eating a rattlesnake. I've tried eating all these things to make my voice heavier and they don't work. They just make you shit horrible things.
