METAL TEST

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Contents - WORDS: ALI COOPER

North­lane’s Mar­cus Bridge does his own pierc­ings and has a fond­ness for wolves, but how metal is he re­ally?

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.”

WHAT’S THE GROSSEST THING YOU’VE EVER HAD IN YOUR MOUTH?

“When I was three or four years old, I have this dis­tinct me­mory of be­ing at a fam­ily friend’s house who had kids that were slightly older than me and my sis­ter. This one girl told me to get re­ally close to her and she farted right in my face and it was all in my mouth. To this day, that is the worst smell I’ve ever smelled and I threw up all over her bed.”

WHAT’S THE WORST FIGHT YOU’VE EVER BEEN IN?

“I’ve not been in too many fights, I’m a pretty good boy. I get in silly Twit­ter ar­gu­ments though, does that count? Half the time it’s a joke but I’m act­ing like I’m be­ing mean. Some­times peo­ple will call me out and I’ll retweet them as a joke.”

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU BLED?

“Four days ago when I was at my girl­friend’s house. I’m pretty sure her cat is bipo­lar, so I’ll be pet­ting her and just out of nowhere she’ll snap and scratch me up. She got me pretty good this time. She’ll walk away and come back in 10 min­utes ask­ing to be pet­ted again.”

WHAT’S THE RAREST PIECE OF MER­CHAN­DISE YOU OWN?

“I’ve got a friend named Colby, and one of our mates made up four or five shirts for his birth­day with this crazy de­sign for a made-up rap project Colby had. It’s got his name and an out­ra­geous de­sign with his head on it. No­body else has that so I have this crazy ex­clu­sive piece.”

WHAT’S YOUR MOST PAINFUL TAT­TOO OR PIERC­ING?

“I pierced my own lip when I was 15 – that re­ally hurt. I just shoved a safety pin through it and closed it up and let it heal. I got weirded out halfway through though, and left it hang­ing there for a minute. But it’s the one I’ve still got to­day, so I think I did a good job.”

WHAT’S THE MOST METAL PIC­TURE ON YOUR PHONE?

“It’s kinda metal to me, this is a pic­ture of these three wolves. One’s a fe­male pro­tect­ing the male wolf, and the fe­male ap­pears to hide un­der­neath the male pre­tend­ing to be scared but she’s ac­tu­ally cov­er­ing his throat from the as­sailant. It’s pretty metal be­cause that fe­male will re­ally take that other wolf down.”
