Head Cheese: Why do you combine wrestling and music?

Particle Don: I write songs about what I know, and that happens to be wrestling.

Head Cheese: How do you come your deep, very specific lyrics?

Particle Don: When writing about a wrestler, I research their move set and career history. I then convert these facts and information morsels into rhyming poems.

Head Cheese: How did feel when wrestlers (Drake Younger, Ethan Page, Danny Havoc) use your songs as entrance themes?

Particle Don: It is an incredible accomplishment, and an honor. As far as I know, there haven't been too many times in wrestling history where a fan has wrote an official entrance theme for a wrestler. Another big accomplishment was when both Danny and Drake used my entrance themes at Tournament of Death 2012 during their big match, and Havoc put me over on the mic before the fight!

Head Cheese: What have been your favorite songs to work on?

Particle Don: Honestly, I enjoy working on every single song. Each one poses a unique challenge, as I need to research and learn details about the particular competitor. Sometimes, I already know a lot of info on a wrestler just from picking up on stuff over the years.

It was fun working on the Drake n' Bake track, because Drake himself requested that I write the song. Same goes for Bleed for a Living and Danny. I'm having a great time right now writing a song about Randi West that I can't wait to share with you on Crimson Mask Vol. 3. I also think the Mean Street Posse song turned out well.

Head Cheese: At IWA Mid-South's King of the Deathmatches on August 6th, 2016, Crimson Mask Vol. 3 will be released. Check it out, guys!
