PSAB: Where does the band name “My Aim” come from exactly?MA: The name “MY AIM” just points out that we have a specific goal in mind with the
band. We really want to achieve something in the modern day music industry and therefore we
want to deliver the best music we possibly can. The main reason why we’ve started this band is
the love and the passion for the heavy music genre and just because of this we really try to
take things to a higher level. We aim as high as we can in the hope that our hard work will pay off one
day and that we will be able to live our dream.

PSAB: What was the feedback like when you released your album Heartburn? Do you still
receive feedback for that album now?

MA: The feedback was overwhelming. We started the band way back in 2010 and released
only 2 singles along the way and never got too much attention. But all of this changed
with the release of our first full length album “Heartburn”. More and more people became
interested in MY AIM and liked what we did. This just felt surreal to us. It took us more than a
year to realize the album and we’ve really put heart and soul into this record.

We could only hope
that people would notice it in the more than over saturated music scene. We were therefore
very pleased to see that people actually did find our music and enjoyed it. Till this date
we’re still receiving messages from people all over the world telling us that they really like
“Heartburn” and that feels just amazing.PSAB: You’re sponsored by Pure Deathcore. How has the experience been being sponsored
by them?

MA: We were very excited when Troy form Pure Deathcore asked us if we were
interested in a sponsorship from Pure Deathcore. It was the first time ever we were approached
by a promo page in this way. We just went for it and released the playthrough for
“Constants // Variables” on their YouTube channel. This proved to be very effective and really helped us
with getting some exposure. It would be amazing if we could get more sponsorships like this.
A big up for Troy and his team.

PSAB: If you had the choice to have two musicians featured on one of your songs.
Which two musicians would those be?

MA: That’s a very hard question to be honest. I think I would go for Shawn Spann
the vocalist of “I, The Breather”. His vocals are just insane and would fit our music very well.
The same counts for Adrian Fitipaldes, the vocalist of “Northlane”. It would be a hard choice but I
think I would go for Shawn.

For the second musician I would go for Jesse Cash from Erra. I really think
he’s an incredible artist. I’m not such a fan of clean vocals in heavy music, but I just love what
Jesse does in Erra. He’s a big inspiration to us for sure.

PSAB: How is the metal scene in Marke, Kortrijk?

MA: The metal scene in our hometown is amazing. We really have an awesome fan base
and just love playing here. Although I don’t like the Belgium metal scene in general too
much. It’s almost impossible to achieve something in the heavy music industry in Belgium. We’re
living in such a small country and yet the local metal scene is so divided. This works contra
productive towards bands and makes a lot of bands quit eventually. But this isn’t slowing us down,
we take matter into our own hands and try to change the few things we can. A new generation of
metal kids is rising and they are determined to change it for the good. We’re in it for
those kids and do whatever we can to build a better metal future together.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?

MA: We’re down to the clichés now, but thanks a lot to everybody who was ever
supported us throughout the years. Without you we would have never gotten this far. You guys
are the reason why we keep doing what we do, we owe our success to you. Therefore we will
never let any opportunity down to thank you or to do something back to you.

Really, there is
nothing more precious to us than our fan base! And besides this, I really want to thank
every booker and promoter out there who ever worked with us. I want to thank “Pure Deathcore”
for their trust in us and I want to thank “Pig Squeals and Breakdowns” for this interview. In
my opinion “Pure Deathcore”, ‘Total Deathcore” and of course you guys from “Pig Squeals and
Breakdowns” are the best promo pages out there! Thank you a whole lot for supporting the
underground music scene!
