Recent Chicago transplant Heath Rave sat down with BrooklynVegan to discuss his band Wolvhammer, his alliance with fellow Chicago native and ex-Nachtmystium member jeff Wilson, and what he loves about the windy city. Here's a clip:

BV: How do you think your move to Chicago has changed your personal outlook, and possibly your view on Wolvhammer?

HR: Nothings really changed for Wolvhammer, if anything I'm getting more excited about it now. I'm a lot happier in Chicago, especially with my job and getting to spend more time with some of my best friends, I'm still just taking it all in but its been fucking awesome. Chicago is what you make of it, if you don't work hard there it will eat you alive, and I guess that's my favorite part about.

BV: Favorite Chicago haunts?

HR: I go to the Rocking Horse a lot since its so close to my house and they have some of the best chicken wings I've ever had. Occasionally I'll stop by Flatiron, its in the building I work in and some good friends work there. The Empty Bottle for shows.

BV: Favorite Chicago bands?

HR: The Atlas Moth, Indian, Lord Mantis, Nachtmystium, Bloodiest, Circle of Animals.
