THE DIRT ON DYLAN CAMPBELL OF METHANE

Dylan Campbell Guitarist of METHANE

Live radio Interview Saturday  on Steele Savage Radio (details Below)

     dmaster

          Meet Dylan: Dylan has been playing guitar for around 24 years, one of his best friends is his puggle named Buffy. Campbell is currently living in Djurås, Sweden where he works in construction. Dylan moved to Sweden in 2014 where he grounded Methane with Tim and Jimi. Dylan’s main guitar is 2009 Les Paul with silver burst, he also has a 1984 custom  BC Rich Iron Bird that he bought from Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation.

      “My favorite thing in life is creating music other people enjoy.”

         Originally born in Eureka, California, Dylan moved to northern New Jersey at six years old. He is the younger brother of Methane’s singer/bassist Tim Scott, who started Dylan’s interest in metal by giving him his first cassettes for Christmas (Metallica – Ride the Lightning, Sepultura -Beneath The remains and Pantera -Vulgar Display of Power) when he was young. That was the first fuel for Dylan’s metal blood lust. Later on, Tim bought Dylan his first guitar and amp, a used Ibanez and a small Marshall practice amp, when he was 13.

          His biggest influences include Tool, Lamb of God, Pantera and Motörhead. Dylan started playing in bands in his teens in New Jersey like hard rock band Beautiful Disease, before moving to Sweden. Where he and his brother decided to create Methane.

Dylan also paints darker images on canvas as a hobby check out his art here:

“It’s really relaxing and a good way to escape the prison called life for a little bit.”

newyear.jpg

         2017 saw the release of METHANE’s debut LP “The Devil’s Own” on Sony/Dark Star Records. That being the highlight of the year for us we wanted to share some other TOP memories. We recruited Olle Ekman on drums as well as playing some great shows and meeting lots of new friends! Other highlights ofcourse were being voted Band of the Month on Metal Devastation Radio and “The Devil’s Own” being named the #2 Underground Album of the Year by FINNISH HEAVY METAL FANS Facebook group.

Each of the band members have made a private list of thier very own TOP OF 2017, both from touring and our personal lives. Lets blow 2018 out of the water! Cheers metalheads and thank you for helping make our 2017 amazing. (Leave your 2017 METHANE memories in the comments section at the bottom of the page!)

Methane Promo Web (25)

1. Best albumTestament– Brotherhood of the Snake , I also got to see them at Gefle Metal Festival in Sweden. There were tons of great new albums but this one stuck out for me.

2. 2017’s Holy Mudfest Moment. Hanging with the boys from Attacker and Blood Feast at Headbangers Open Air in Hamburg, Germany. Knee deep in mud and mead.

3. 2017 Throwback -The re-release of RevenantProphecies of a Dying World“. We first released the album in 1990 and that it has been remembered and re-released is really an honour.

4. 2017’s Tour ScareOlle twisting his leg after going on a run in  Holland a couple hours before our gig. Luckily he made it through the entire set twisted ankle and all.
5. Craziest CountryFinland. Snow in June, endless flow of alcohol at Mark’s Rock Club. Loosing my voice and learning the language”kikkeli”.
6. 2017’s Funnest Gig – Otzenhausen Germany with Nervosa. Sweaty as fuck and great people and fun party in the basement! Ståhl, Titten , Alcohol! OTZEN-HAUS-EN!
7. Best hangover– after a long night drinking mead at the Wiking Bar in Berlin with the guys from Edge of Ever.                                                                                                                        Methane-Liljan-Borlänge-170915-Bild01 8. Favorite venue/show. Little Devil in Tilburg, Netherlands w/ Nervosa and Warbringer. Hung out the night before we played there and had lots of fun with the people there and of course again on gig night. I really love small metal clubs with stickers on the walls with a real underground feel. Oh yeah Jägerbombs!
9. 2017 Funniest Tour Memory -Where is Dylan’s shoe. After waking up in the back of the van ,alone, (Dylan refused to follow us to the hotel) Dylan frantically searching for his missing shoe when we came and woke him up.  We finally found the shoe right where he apperently hid it, stuck in between the seats.

10. Worst Tour Memory– forgetting my passport in Sweden and panicking hopeing someone at home finds it and can bring it to me in Germany.

According to Tim Scott (Bassist/Vocalist) the band is currently writing new material for it’s second album. ” The new stuff is thrashier, heavier and groovier, we are loving it. Olle (Ekman) has brought a new demension to the band and our writing. We haven’t lost that Southern Metal dynamic either. I am really excited to get back in the studio. But first things first, playing live is where it the monsters come to life and where my demons feel at home.”

Methane-Liljan-Borlänge-170915-Bild01estonia 1.jpg

Methane is a hard hitting, and  unapologetic southern groove/thrash band formed in 2012 and based in Sweden. Members Tim Scott and Dylan Campbell moved from America to team with Jim Masterbo and Andreas Strom. Between 2014 and 2015, with the release of two EPs, two music videos, plus soundtrack credit on the Metalhedz mini series, and the first eNovel with music, Methane got noticed and subsequently signed by Dark Star/Sony Records in 2016. Methane’s debut album, “The Devil’s Own“, came out in February 2017 to  positive reviews. After a successful tour season, and welcoming new drummer Olle Ekman, they are preparing to assault Europe again starting in Winter 2018. Find their music on iTunes, Google, or your favorite listening app.

METHANE RELEASE SCARS AND BARS LIVE VIDEO

               Sweden-based metal outfit METHANE have released a live music video of their song ‘Scars and Bars’. The song comes off of their debut record The Devil’s Own released on Sony’s Dark Star Records in early 2017.

            “We love playing live, its onstage where the music comes to life.” said bassist/vocalist Tim Scott about the clip. “This song has a deeper meaning for me and means alot to have recorded this at home and for our home crowd,maybe the person who inspired the anger in the text.”



The video was recorded live with soundboard quality sound at Liljan in Methane’s home town Borlänge Sweden, September 19, 2017 on ’The Devil’s Own European tour’. Scars and Bars is the first in a series of live videos to be released from the tour.
