Interview with Mud Factory!

Facebook – Genre(s): Groove/Hardcore – Location: Vranje

PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Mud Factory” for your band?

MF: Well, we started as a stoner/sludge band, believe it or not. So, the “Mud Factory” was kinda more apropriate name for the music we wanted to do back then, as a reference to something sludgy, dirty etc. Or at least we thought so. As the time went by we found out that it was a bit different genre what’s fit for us, and it came completely natural, without any forcing in direction that we play now. Simply, that’s the music we listen to the most and very much love to play.

Interview with Pantheons!

Genre(s): Hardcore/Groove/Progressive
Location: Southwest Virginia
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Pantheons” for your band?
Pantheons: From the creation of this band onward, our lyrical content in its
entirety has been based off of our fascination with mythology. Greek,
Norse, etc.With That decided, it was only logical to choose a
name that tied it all together. A Pantheon, by definition, is; / all
deities of a specific religion considered collectively /. We all
thought the name had a ring, fit the subject matter, and tied together
whatever branch of myth we wanted to embody through our lyrics. So
that’s what we chose.
PSAB: What are your plans with releasing new music? Can we expect new material sometime this year?
Pantheons: Absolutely. After we released our EP “Primal Divine” In January, there
was barely any period of rest before we started tossing ideas around for
our full length. There’s a lot of riffs, lyrics and possibilities up in
the air at the moment, but what’s certain is that it will be based off
of the Norse pantheon, and it’s myths. As far as instrumental direction
goes, we’re going to bring more of our individual influences to the
table. A lot more than we displayed in our EP.
PSAB: You’re currently unsigned, if you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why? 

: Sumerian Records. A lot, if not most of the bands on that label have inspired at least each of us in some shape or form.They put out music that we all enjoy, and listen to on a regular basis.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Southwest Virginia?
Pantheons: Small, but tight knit. There are few venues to play in, unless you
travel to Johnson City/Elizabethton or into Kentucky. When you play one
of those few, however. You get to see a lot of familiar faces. Most have
which have been there from the very start. You can’t beat that.
PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?
Pantheons: It’s a diverse list as individuals, but I’ll list some bands we share. Particularly moving forward towards our full length: Monuments, Born Of Osiris, They Art Is Murder, Glass Cloud, The Korea, Gojira, Norma Jean, After The Burial,Hail To The King, Volumes, Whitechapel, The Afterimage
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?
Pantheons: Raise hell, praise Dale, use more phaser. \m/

Beneath The Remains – Demo [REVIEW]

Genre(s): Groove/Melodic Metalcore
Beneath The Remains’ three track demo was released earlier this year (or sometime late 2013, there is no release date I can find). The demo consists of three songs, “Pray for Pain,” “Angels & Demons,” and “Straight Out of Hell.” This demo reminds of how metalcore use to do sound like, before the overuse of guitar chugging, unneeded clean singing, random breakdowns, etc.
Beneath The Remains sticks to an old school metalcore type of sound with the mix of groove metal. The song that portrays the most groove and old school type of metalcore sound is “Pray for Pain.” The song has the best audio quality out of the three. “Angels & Demons” has a bit more guitar chugging it, and “Straight Out of Hell” has a lot more riffs than the other two songs, also it has a guitar solo near the end of the song. They do keep to some guitar chugging as well in the song too. Overall, Beneath The Remains’ demo is solid and their upcoming EP, I expect, to be good. So, keep on the lookout for the band!Score: 3.5/5
