Drummer Jared Klein of PA's Rivers of Nihil is today's guest!! We caught up during RON's headlining tour in support of their critically acclaimed 2018 release "Where Owls Know my Name” where we got into heat waves in Canada/funny Canadian towns, Engelbert Humperdinck, how he got the call for the gig and the process of learning/rehearsing/writing for the record, playing with his brother and his musical family, his first drum set and most recent drum sets, extreme drumming influences and what lead him to heavier music, botched gigs and more!
