The Brothers Highhorse – A Graveyard for Lunatics [REVIEW]

1512261_10152216039291170_253714983_o

Genre(s): Deathcore
The Brothers Highhorse’s newly released single “A Graveyard for Lunatics” is roughly four minutes long. They combine some elements of black metal, mostly heard in the vocals, with standard deathcore. The pace of the song is fast, and the instrumentals change through the song. In the beginning to about midway through, they have a fast-going death metal sound, then transition into a more melodic one for a small amount of time. However, quickly transition back to the fast-going death metal sound with symphonic elements for the rest of the song. The vocals used are black metal-like high screams and low screams.
The only thing you can notice about this song right away is the poor audio quality, and I think that takes a lot away from the song itself. If the band were to release a new song in the future with better audio quality, I believe it would sound a whole lot better. Other than that, it is a solid song with variety.Score: 3/5

Interview with Apex!

apex

Genre(s): Deathcore
Location: Cincinnati, OH
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Apex” for your band?
Apex: The name Apex comes from the phrase “Apex Predator”. An apex predator has few to no predators of their own and they reside at the top of their food chain. I personally thought that was as a strong a name as we could get
PSAB: You released your debut single “Mortifier” back in February of 2014. How was the feedback for the single then and are you still receiving feedback now?
Apex: The feedback has been amazing. Better than we ever could’ve expected for a first single from a new band. Also, yeah we keep getting kids liking our page almost everyday and the views on the video continue to climb. It’s weird and amazing at the same time. I can’t wait to see what happens when we release more music.
PSAB: As of this interview, you’re currently not signed to any label. If you had the choice of any label to be signed to, which label would that be and why?
Apex: I honestly don’t think we’re all too concerned about getting signed. If I personally had to pick, I’d say Sumerian or Epitaph. I think some of the artists on those labels and the way they are ran are amazing.
PSAB: How is the local metal scene in Cincinnati, OH?
Apex: It’s a great place to be to play metal. There are some amazing bands around here to share the stage with and the kids here come out to every show and they go hard as fuck. The bands support each other and everyone gets excited on everyone’s music. You can’t ask for much more. We wanna see what the scene is like in other places though.
PSAB: What one band has played the most influence on your music?Apex: Honestly I don’t think we’ve sit down and been like “make that part like” or anything. The entire writing process has been “let’s be different and let’s be heavy”. But if I had to pick on mutual influence throughout the whole band, it’s be The Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?
Apex: To anyone who has taken the time of day to like our page, listen to Mortifier, share it, download it, tell a friend about it, anything. Thank you so much. We have BIG things coming in the near future. The new music kicks Mortifier in the ass and we’ll have a few announcements you’ll wanna hear. Stick around, and again… Thank you.

Interview with Bow Messiah!

148661_10152021090211245_1611357950_n

Genre(s): Deathcore/Death Metal
Location: Woodend, Christchurch
PSAB: Where does the band name “Bow Messiah” come from?

BM: The name originated through religious beliefs that we should bow to a martyr or god to be saved from damnation, in reality we are all equals so no one should bow to a false god that is a myth, it basically means “messiah bow to the common man”

PSAB: You’ve been around since 2007. What do you think has changed the most within the metal scene in the last seven years?

BM: There definitely seems like there’s a lot more bands out there these days, whether it is the ease of the internet and global exposure, and with the technology at hand for bands they can make demos very easily, it’s a struggle to keep up with the amount of new music and bands on the scene

PSAB: How is the local metal scene in Woodend, Christchurch?

BM: The metal scene is Christchurch is on the comeback, We have some amazing local bands here that we regularly gig with and top dudes that all help each other out with support slots, backline etc, the last few years have been tough for bands as the earthquakes devastated most of the top venues, so there was a period where bands were relocating to different towns/countries or calling it quits, we struggled for a while to secure venues that support our genre but in the last 12 months the venues have been rebuilding and getting back up and running and the scene is alive again with some great venues hosting some killer bands

PSAB: You’re currently unsigned as of this interview. If you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?

BM: Nuclear Blast or Local NZ label Deadboy Records as they would suit us really well and both seem like great companies to work for

PSAB: What bands did you listen to growing up, and do those bands play an influence on your music now?

BM: We have all had different influences growing up from Black Sabbath to Cannibal Corpse and everything in between, We have gone through various stages since the beginning of the band, and we tend to write according to the type of music we are listening to at the time, At the start we were big into Lamb of God, Slayer, Pantera, the more traditional types of metal, as the band progressed we started tweaking our genre much influenced by what we are listening to now, the likes of Carnifex, Suffocation, Thy Art Is Murder, I Declare War, Behemoth and changing tuning’s along the way, we went from a drop D 6 string guitar tuning to C then down to a 7 string drop A tuning making things a lot heavier and broader than we anticipated at the beginning

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

BM: We are extremely grate full to those who support us, there have been some hard times that the band has pulled through not knowing if things would work out but after the national tour and the release of the “Maggots” EP, things have really picked up, we now have a game plan and are motivated to bring fresh ideas to the table, it’s great hearing positive comments from local and international fans alike, we just try to make tunes that we would listen to ourselves and if people dig them that’s a major bonus, We are now working on the debut full length and some other ideas we have not tried yet so hopefully the snowball will keep growing

Genre(s): Symphonic Deathcore
Location: Shumen, Bulgaria
PSAB: Does your band name “In Dying Moments” hold any important significance to any of the band members?
IDM: Not actually, we were with another name that just didn’t fit and we came
up with the idea “In Dying Moments” because most of our lyrics are
based on betrayal, suffering and disrespect.PSAB: Your new album Through The Reality is set to release sometime this year. When can expect the album to drop?

IDM: Hopefully we will be able to release it in April, but for now there is no official date yet.PSAB: You’re currently in search of a label to release the album through.
Do you have any labels in mind you would like it to release through?

IDM: Well that’s a really interesting question! Every bands dream is to sign
with a major label, but you gotta take a long trip till you get there,
so all we are searching for now is a good independent label.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Shumen, Bulgaria?
IDM: It’s very weak, there are not much bands in here and its very difficult
to get out, but we are doing our best and that’s why we are the most
succesfull band in here.PSAB: If you could have any musician as a guest musician on a track, which musician would that be?

IDM: Oh, that is definitely hard to answer. They’re too much, but maybe No.1 is Aaron Matts (Betraying The Martyrs)PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?

IDM: Get stoked! Follow us on every social media
network, search for news about the release of the new album and STAY
SAFE. We love you all!

Interview with Abandoned World!

1901914_605651502853680_1452617536_n

Genre(s): Deathcore/Metalcore
Location: Stockholm
PSAB: Where does the band name “Abandoned World” come from?
AW: At first Abandoned World was just a project name for the band. It was
our former singer who came up with it and we decided to use it until we
could come up with something better. But in the end we fell for the
name because of it’s different meanings for us in the band and our fans.PSAB: When can we expect to hear new music from your band?
AW: We are going to release a new song in a few weeks and then hopefully will we have a new EP out in the end of April!PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Stockholm, Sweden?
AW: The local metal scene here in Stockholm is pretty rough for a “core”
band like us. The only music that swedes likes here is Iron Maiden and
Metallica. But the amount of smaller stages and such are very easy to
find in Stockholm!

PSAB: If you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?

AW: We all have our different taste of music and labels in the band so thats
a very hard question. In the end I think the choice would stand between
Roadrunner, Metalblade or Sumerian records!

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?

AW: Keep on spreading the word about the band and its music! A new song will
soon be released along with some awesome news for our foreign fans in
Europe!
