Interview: Cody Coon of Killer Refrigerator Warns Us All

Cody Coon of Killer Refrigerator
There are many different kinds of bands in this world.

There are many different kinds of bands in metal. The first band I ever truly loved was Kiss and later Gwar.

Both of these bands had their own idiom that really separated them from the rest of the world.

Neither of the groups was very serious like Slayer or even Metallica became later.

It seems to me that a lot of bands that aren't singing about the end of the world, how Satan is going to get us all, or how we should all be working together to save the world doesn't get a whole lot of respect in this country.

Well, let's put an end to all of that. As a self-described fan of Kiss, Gwar, King Diamond, Weird Al  Yankovic, Powerglove, and many others who don't sing about the most serious stuff in the world, let's take a look at a very cool project about killer refrigerators again!

Glacially Musical: Let's start at the beginning. What made you want to be a musician?

Cody Coon: As a youngster I had a dream, a vision rather...in it I saw myself in a sea of people. 

I was wailing on my guitar in the center of it and the crowd began to cheer "He saved us! His music saved us!" It wasn't until many years later I witnessed my first appliance possession and put two and two together. 

I had to become the voice that stood against the appliances...after my training in Japan with the masters of Guitar Marshall arts or "udto-fanshwai" as they call it. I saw that my calling was to become a musican...and stop the fridgepocalypse.

GM: What's the inspiration for the Fridge album?

CC: Obviously the real life events that we're trying to warn our listeners about. 

You see it on the news everyday, "Kid killed in a freak Dryer accident" "Man killed by bowling ball machine" so on and so forth...these are the sugar coated stories; just the tip of the iceberg, if you will. 

The Appliance Genocide, the onslaught of ignorant human beings is happening all around us...HEAR MY WARNING! But truthfully I could go on for days about what influences this band, but at the end of the day it's definitely the most deadly appliance of all YOUR FRIDGE!!

GM: How long have you been touring?
CC: 2015 will mean 4 1/2 years on the road, we've been at it for a long time now. 

The underground anti-appliance movement is strong and is just now moving it's way into a more mainstream audience.

GM: What do you do on the road to stay sane?
CC: We like to talk to strangers, learn their stories. Walk a mile in another man's shoes, if you catch my meaning. 

We'll approach a homeless gentlemen and ask him "How DO YOU stay away from using appliances?" More times than not they're aware of the Fridgepocalypse and have chosen this life because they feel anything is better than being depended on these devices...brainwashed and then eaten by the blood thirsty fiends!

GM: How is Killer Refrigerator different than UnKured?

CC: UnKured is a completely different animal. 

I am the same person that writes and fronts both bands. But two souls inhabit my body, one of their outlets is UnKured and the others in Killer Refrigerator. 

GM: How did Killer Refrigerator get started as a separate entity from UnKured?

CC: One day, lost and confused Luke (Blender) found me. 

He was able to unlock the other soul, this soul, stuck inside my body. I weaped to him the burden I carried, knowing of the Fridgecalypse and it's blood shed. 

He took me in, let me channel this now freed soul. Thus came Killer Fridge. Both bands live in harmony,  just as both souls do.

GM: What are your biggest influences?

CC: Anal Cunt, Macabre, Gama Bomb, Mayhem, S.O.D., Havok, Cannabis Corpse, and Limp Bozkit. 

GM: There is a lot of talk of Pro-Tools, social media, and YouTube in order to forego the labels. How has the experience been for you?

CC: We've never used any of that stuff.

GM: What are you upcoming touring plans? Any chance of a King Diamond/Mercyful Fate styled double bill?

CC: The King did inquire about a Killer Refrigerator tour in Europe with him. 

We politely declined seeing as how he has no songs about deadly appliances. 
(Or did you means a Killer Fridge and UnKured tour...? Anythings possible)

GM: What else should we know about Killer Refrigerator?

CC: We currently have one full length " When Fridges Rule This World", an EP "The Fridge and the Power It Holds" premiering on No Clean Singing's website ...and we're currently finishing "Refrigeration Plague" our next full LP out this year. 

Please shoot us a Facebook message with any ideas you may have,  or any collaborations. We love to have fun with this.  

GM: Where can we buy the CD and digital versions?

CC: You can order physical copies through our Facebook. Digital downloads are available through Soundcloud.
