How metal is Northlane's Marcus Bridge?

Pitting your heroes against the test that really matters: Metal Hammer's Metal Test. This month, Northlane's Marcus Bridge steps up to the plate

What’s the most illegal thing you’ve ever done?

“I got arrested for breaking into my high school when I was 16. We only broke into the canteen for snacks! I got kicked out and I moved to a different school, but in the end I much preferred my new school, so there’s definitely a silver lining there.”

What’s the most metal album you own?

“I’m not that metal, to be honest… I have Job For A Cowboy’s Doom EP, which isn’t necessarily my cup of tea but it’s the most metal thing I own.”

What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had?

“When I was 10 years old, I had a cream soda bottle in the freezer that had completely frozen, so I got a knife to try and cut it out. The knife slipped and I sliced my hand open. When my mum came, I told her I was trying to climb through a broken window.”

What’s the most you’ve ever been sick?

“I went to a birthday party in my last year of high school. I was pretty broke but there was a two-for-$10 offer on some South African white wine. That kind of offer is a bad start already, but I destroyed those bottles very quickly and had a pretty awful night afterwards.”
