Make Them Suffer mastermind Sean Harmanis has said the band’s first three records were inspired by video games.
Harmanis was discussing new album ‘How To Survive A Funeral’ in a recent interview with Grater when he said that 2010’s EP ‘Lord of Woe’, 2012’s LP ‘Neverbloom’, and 2014’s LP ‘Old Souls’ took shape partly because of games such as World of Warcraft.
“Our first couple of releases were inspired by Warcraft III and the World of Warcraft universe.
“I used to play a lot of Starcraft too. I was in the top league of Starcraft.
“I used to do tournaments and then my fingers couldn’t click as fast. I’d taken a break and then coming back to it was such a steep learning curve.
“Then I got into League of Legends for a little bit and MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arena) like Dota, and then Darksouls, Bloodborne; the whole Soulsborne game series.
“When our generation is all in retirement homes, it’s just gonna be big LAN cafes of people playing games,” he laughs.
Taken from ‘Old Souls’, song Blood Moon was partly inspired by video game Bloodborne.
