Listen to the song “Elevator” from Motometer’s album Motometer 3 and learn what meaning Stephen makes:

“Elevator” was written and produced by Motometer.

Stephen Speaks

This is a song that came together fairly easily both writing and recording. It has a nice hook at the start and kind of feels like you’re taking a nice ride throughout the song. Much like an Elevator ride!


We talked to Stephen about playing at Descendants of Crom III. The Third Annual Descendants of Crom heavy music festival takes place in Pittsburgh, PA September 20 – 22, 2019.

How do you feel about playing DOC III?

Very excited about playing it! It’s a fantastic event with great music and great people.

What can the audience expect from your performance?

Anytime the 3 of us get together, magic happens.

What other bands are you excited to see perform?

I am excited to see everyone perform. I’ve found that all of the bands are kind of like a small family in that they all support each other which is a great thing.

What else do you want readers to know?

I want everyone to have a good time, enjoy the music and keep supporting the bands!

Thanks so much to Stephen of Motometer for talking with us about their song “Elevator” and Descendants of Crom III! We hope this adds to your experience of their band, their song, and their performance. Thanks for making meaning with us.
