Craig Rosenthal


I am a long time musician of industrial music, but at this point primarily record atmospheric metal. Horror, dreams, nightmares, and history are all themes that are a part of my life that play a large factor in my music and what I write about.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music to me is like playing as a god. There is nothing more satisfying then writing music or recording music. Listening to your work and going back over it again and again and working it and twisting it and manipulating it to make it as perfect as one can make it.

What is your music dream?

Just to write music and find some like minded people that can appreciative what I am doing with my music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Promoting individuality through the arts. Whether it be music, film, painting.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Not sure which would be the most memorable, but Pink Floyd's Us and Them does come to mind.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Drudkh Hollenthon Neurosis Bathory Skinny Puppy PIG Dawn

What inspires you to make music?

It's what keeps me halfway sane. I explore my own mind from the music I write, so it is a bit therapeutic.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Studying oneself. Opening new doors in your mind that you may not have thought were there. Becoming ones true self.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I used to perform, but I am a studio musician at this point in my life. I have never been a big fan of playing in front of a huge group of people. More a fan of sitting around with other musicians and everyone just jamming out and having a good time.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I don't know. I write and record music not so much for the masses. My music will probably never be accepted from a mass marketing viewpoint, so I can't really answer.

What do you think of Drooble?

I have only just started so I don't have much of an opinion as of yet. Glad I can upload music.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

People destroying your work with no context or understanding of what they are destroying. I guess trolls frustrate me as a musician.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I used to show up at shows a lot. But I don't really do much as far as supporting the local scene.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I have no idea. I suppose the quality to eat your pride and make music that is marketable?
