Interview with Fires of Vermilion!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Alliance, OH
PSAB: Where does the band name “Fires of Vermilion” come from?
FOV: Band name? The color of the feathers of the Vermilion bird in Chinese
Culture, relative to the Phoenix means eternal/eternity in the Taoist
belief. We started as remnants; ashes, rebirthed and built something out
of nothing. This band formed from the remains of two bands. We were all
friends and had played together before so when our bands ended we
decided to form something new from what many saw as nothing.PSAB: You’re currently working on your debut album. How’s that going and when can your fans expect to hear the album?

FOV: For our upcoming EP we have 5 solid songs that we all love and that are
all diverse from one another. I think that’s the main goal when we
write: keep a signature sound but keep the structure of each song
different than the previous song we wrote.
PSAB: If you had the choice to have a musician featured on one of your tracks. Which musician would that be and why?
FOV: As for a feature on our EP? We have so many people that we each would
love to have from Kyle Birhle of Sirens and Sailors to Levi Benton of
Miss May I to Dennis Tvrdik of Affiance. We all have such different
tastes in music which also plays into our song writing.
PSAB: What’s the metal scene like in Alliance, OH?
FOV: If I’m being honest, the metal scene in alliance is kinda lacking right
now. We used to have great bands such as Skies of Crimson, OneHitKill,
and They Promised Escape to support the metal scene. All of those bands
have since broken up or parted ways due to life changes or musical
differences. If we were to set the clock back three or four years, I
would say the metal scene was great in alliance. But there are a few
bands coming up and we hope we can get the scene going again.
PSAB: What are three bands that play the most influence on your music?
FOV: The three bands that play the most influence on our music is nearly
impossible to answer. Because like I said we have such a diverse musical
taste throughout the band. For Aaron our vocalist Linkin Park, Chelsea
Grin, and I See Stars

For Austin our Drummer The Devil Wears Prada, Miss May I and Beartooth

For Brook our guitarist Outline in Color, Affiance, and Mula Relocate

For Colton our Keyboardist Beartooth, Of Mice and Men, and Miss May I

And for myself (Zach) Sirens and Sailors,  Chelsea Grin, and Slipknot.

PSAB: Any shout outs to give?
FOV: Shout out to Nathan Staab from Addict Entertainment for never giving up
on us and giving us great opportunities down the road, our
friends/family/parents for believing in us and our dream to play music,
Vibe Studios for our upcoming debut ep, and theses bands: All the bands I
listed as our favorites and every single band that we have had the
opportunity to share the stage with and of course the fans that come to
the shows and have no clue who we are that stick around to check us out.
That means the most to us is meeting new people and making new friends.
