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

64964_544717015547602_1585158230_n

Genre(s): Groove/Experimental/Hardcore
Location: Ashtabula, OH
PSAB: Why did you choose the
name “Sykosis” for your band?

SYK: The reason we chose the name Sykosis is because just about every one
of us have been in the nut house at some point in our life and it just
seemed fitting, we saw the name on CSI television show and found out
what it meant and it clicked with us that it was the right name for us
and what we we’re going for as a band.. we’re crazy.. have you seen us
live?? 

PSAB: How was the feedback when you released The Act of Vengeance? Are you
still receiving feedback now?

SYK: The feedback has been phenomenal .. the album has been very well
received from fans and critics alike, we have the best fans in the world
and we have to thank all of them for the support all the way to
California to Texas to Arkansas etc. !!
We have received great reviews, some bands say they are putting out
their heaviest record.. but we actually did .. we went as heavy as we
possibly could on “The Act Of Vengeance” .. the album is still spreading
and going to places we have never thought possible!!

PSAB: You’re currently signed to Ferocious Records. How has the experience
been being signed to them?

SYK: It has been great to say the least .. We would have never had these
opportunities we have now if not getting signed to Ferocious Records..
With our album being packages and wrapped and distributed and recording
at the amazing studio we got to record it at .. a big thank you to
Dylann at Ferocious for all he has done for us!!! 

PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Ashtabula?

SYK: Its booming and always has been.. Ashtabula County has always had a
great metal scene full of pissed of motherfuckers.. with past metal
bands such as : Profound Anger – Acid Porno – Mosquioto Bitten Bastards –
Eclipse – Konipshun Phit – Falling Astray – Devolution – Deviate –
P.R.S. – All Dead and now theres bands in the Ashtabula Metal Scene like
us SYKOSIS and Chaos In The Sky – Cherry Poppins etc. its a pretty cool
fucking scene to be apart of and its unique .. we want to give a huge
shout out to P.J. at The Cove in Geneva and to his staff as well because
its pretty much the only place in Ashtabula where we can play metal and
get away with it! 

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

SYK: There’s 7 band members in our band and we all love metal and other
genres too .. there are a lot of bands that have influenced us all
throughout the years to make the music we all have come to create in
Sykosis today! 

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to the readers?

SYK: We would like to thank everyone who supports us in anyway from coast
to coast and overseas .. keep spreading the word because its working!!
To all of our friends in Arkansas for the support .. you’ve made it our
2nd home!! Also we’d like to thank Dylann at Ferocious Records for
always supporting us!! Last but not least a huge thank you to all of our
girlfriends and close friends who have always supported us in any way
they could!!!
