Interview with Parius

12049482_924193287616696_6458110211247073230_n

PSAB:  There was a bit of a hiatus for Parius recently; care to elaborate on that?

Parius: Sure, I wouldn’t exactly call it a ‘hiatus’. Louis, our vocalist, moved to Seattle for a few months. We actually considered gigging with his identical twin brother but never ended up doing that hahaha. Everyone took some time to themselves during that period though. I actually ended up writing a bit of material by myself, so we have a lot to work with going forward from our debut!

Interview with Robotface!

10370413_751007331604250_291539024275438194_n
Genre(s): Deathcore
Location: Indianapolis
 
PSAB: The name “Robotface” is your band name. Why did you choose that for your name?
RF: It
really hold no premise to the band or sound, what it represents is a
modern age of technology. A place where people are hiding behind a fake
face, whether it be via the internet or in person. The name gives people
a way to visualize something so metaphorical as this much easier than
drawing out a long name full of unnecessary words. Short and too the
point haha
 
 
PSAB: When can we expect new music from you? By the end of 2014? 

RF
:
We
are currently in production of our first full length album. All we can
say is we are shooting for a release date sometime in the first quarter
of next year, 2015!
 
 
PSAB: If you had the choice to have a musician featured on one of your tracks. Which musician would that be and why? 

RF
:
Wow
between all of us there are so many to decide from.  If we had to
choose it would be between Phil Bozeman of Whitechapel or Chris Fronzak
of Attila hahaha. But yet again, there are soooo many great musicians to
choose from!
 
 
PSAB: What’s the metal scene like in Indianapolis? 

RF
:
As
of recently, it is well on its way to thriving again! Given the right
date, and line up, Indianapolis can bring one hell of a crowd and/or
party!  Its all about Location and timing around here! Everyone is
connected, we are all constantly networking with other bands in the
state and surrounding states, planning the next move and whats best for
Indiana in general! Musically and entertainment alike!
 
 
PSAB: If you could release a three-way split album with two other bands, which two bands would that be? 

RF
:
I am going to go local on this one!  I would would have to say ABOLISHER and VILLISCA!
 
 
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there? 

RF
:
We
appreciate each and every one of you! We sincerely mean this! We give
you guys ALL the credit! This goes to fans and haters alike! Keep it up,
there is so much more to come!

1399730_10152059037787238_1124543400_o

Genre(s): Deathcore/Hardcore
Location: Toronto, Ontario
PSAB: Where does the band name “Dawn Vally” come from?DV: Most of us do
construction in the band for work an we are constantly driving along the
Don Valley Parkway.  We came up with the name one day on our drive home
an figured we’d call ourselves Dawn Vally to rep Toronto, there is no
“e” in Vally so it’s easy to find us online.PSAB: How was the feedback when you released Just Pleaser? How has the feedback been?

DV: The
feedback was surprisingly good for us. It took us just under a year to
get everything together for the Just Pleaser release, with guitarist
changes an funds. But when it finally came out people were really
stoked. Since then we’ve been trying to get ourselves out to all the
towns an cities we can so they can have a taste too.

PSAB: What are you hobbies outside of creating music?

DV: We play video games. We also like to sit around an see who can come up with the better TV show concept.

PSAB: How is the metal scene in your area?

DV: Metal
scene is pretty lively in Toronto. Don’t get us wrong it can be a harsh
place but these kids want their metal an they are gonna get anyway they
can. The energy at some of these shows are just insane an most of them
are just little local shows.

PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music? This can be non-music related.

DV: For us, we like you use the influences in our lives to kinda of tell our story, weather they be good or bad times.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give?

DV: Hell yea, shout outs to Drag The Lake, Mirrilia an Continent.

Interview with Death And Healing!

10547418_693174584069298_2668158525768580039_n

Genre(s): Death Metal
Location: Carmel, NY
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Death and Healing” for your band name?
DAH: Well, our primary songwriter/vocalist/guitarist of the band Will is
really into the band “Wintersun” and we derived our name out of one of
their songs titled “Death and the Healing”. We just made it “Death and
Healing”. The concept of the name is basically exactly as it sounds.
Pretty much coping with death but hey, you could interpret it any way
you want.
PSAB: When can we expect new music from you?
DAH: You can expect new music from us fairly soon. We actually just finished a
new song entitled “No one Goes to Heaven”. It’s pretty “thrashy”
sounding even though we’re a melodic death metal band but, if you want
to get real technical, you could say we’re a melodic death metal band
with black metal and thrash metal influence.
PSAB: If you had the choice to have a musician featured on one of your tracks. Which musician would that be and why?
DAH: That’s hard to answer because there are so many great musicians and a
lot of us would choose ones that aren’t living and some of us like a lot
of musicians who aren’t even in the metal genre. So to be honest, can’t
say.
PSAB: What is the metal scene like in Carmel, NY?
DAH: The metal scene in Carmel, NY is not bad but, it’s not great. For
example, there aren’t too many “local, local” shows but, when there are,
they’re pretty rad so, we can’t complain. We’re actually the only death
metal band from Carmel. Most of the locals are just rock, alternative,
pop punk etc… but we all get along and respect each other and that’s
the way it should be honestly.
PSAB: What are three bands that play the most influence on your music?
DAH: 3 bands that have the most influence on our music specifically would
probably be Wintersun, The Black Dahlia Murder and Metallica. Most of
ourselves however actually have a very open music taste and there are
plenty of bands and musicians that made us want to pick up our
instruments in the first place.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?
DAH: We just want to say thank you to all of our fans. Thank you to anyone
supporting us and that you should all be on the lookout for more of our
material to be uploaded for you guys to listen to and new material as
well!

Interview with Street To The Ocean!

10155982_775777712443481_7151543678475540617_n

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Wien
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Street to the Ocean” for your band?
STTO: When we were looking for a name one of our guitar players came up with
“Street to the Ocean” . We’ve chosen it because it’s an easy name to
remember and it’s very neutral. It doesn’t sound negative but also not
really positive and you can’t have any prejudices in regard to our
lyrics, playing style etc. when you’re hearing our name. Oh and of course it sounds good in our opinion haha!PSAB: What are your plans for this Fall season?
STTO: In July and August we’ve recorded our new EP called “Mirror” and shot a
music video for one of the tracks. So we’re planning to release both in
early Fall. Apart from playing a few shows we will begin writing new songs for our first full length album.PSAB: If you had the chance to tour any country. Which country would that be?
STTO: We’d love to tour everywhere outside of Europe because it would be a
new experience  but  we all agree that a dream would become true for us
if we ever could tour in the USA.PSAB: How is the metal scene in your area?
STTO: We have a lot of fans of this genre and also a lot of talented upcoming
metal bands. Luckily there are enough promoters and locations which are
very interested in pushing the scene forwards so it can stay alive!PSAB: What are the top five bands that have played the most influence on your music?
STTO: Bands like Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside and Bury Tomorrow have a
huge influence on our instrument playing style. Our vocalist is mostly
influenced by bands like Heaven Shall Burn or All That Remains.PSAB: Have any shout outs to give?
STTO: We’re glad that pages like this are existing which are promoting underground bands and not only the well-known. We
also really want to thank our fans, families and friends for supporting
us. Without them we wouldn’t be there,  where we are today.
