Interview with Exile The Traitor!

Genre(s): Melodic Death Metal
Location: Glasgow, Sweden
PSAB: Where did the band name “Exile The Traitor” come from exactly?
ETT: The
name Exile The Traitor came from a brainstorming session we had. We
wanted something that wasnt too graphic or gory so it wouldn’t give away
what genre we were. Getting lumped in as a Brutal DM band is basically
what we tried to avoid
PSAB: When can we expect new material from you? Sometime later this year?
ETT: We are currently in the process of writing new material for a mini album
which will be out later this year. Adding some new elements into our
sound so we are excited to let our fans hear it.
PSAB: You’re currently unsigned, if you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?
ETT: Metal Blade or Century Media would be the ideal label for us. They
are constantly putting out amazing records and they seem to promote
their bands really well.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Glasgow?
ETT: The metal scene in Glasgow or even Scotland as a whole is amazing.
Some insanely talented bands. Should check out Maelstrom, Co-Exist, Man
Made Origin, Kill The Hydra, Scordatura, Party Cannon, Hand Of Horus,
Excellent Cadaver & Blood Thread. The list could go on really.
PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music? This can be non-music related.
ETT: The main influence on our music is probably our attitude towards it. We
write music that we like to listen to and thats never going to change.
We started with an idea to be fast & heavy but to write actual
memorable songs with melody & groove rather than just a brutal death
metal band where everything sounds the same
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?
ETT: We would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far, everyone
who has come to a show or grabbed a tshirt & to the awesome folk who
have put us on their show. We appreciate it.

Interview with Exiler!

Genre(s): Deathcore
Location: San Antonio, TX
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Exiler” for your band?
Exiler: We’re honestly not sure. The name was chosen long ago (back in ’11) when we I was in 5th grade. Trey (old vocalist) came up with the name outcaster, and then we decided exiler seemed cooler. Zack (current vocalist) liked the name so we just kept it.
PSAB: When can we expect your new album The Awakening to drop this summer? Late in August?
Exiler: The album should drop in mid June-early July.
PSAB: You’re currently unsigned, if you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?
Exiler: Definitely either Metal Blade, or We Are Triumphant. They both have the sickest/heaviest bands, and they’re really great guys.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in San Antonio, TX?
Exiler: Horrible. When
people say they like metal, they’re talking about Black Veil Brides and
Blood on the Dance Floor. Sometimes they’ll say Bring Me the Horizon,
yet they’ll only know/like Sempiternal. (IMO, I miss the 2006 deathcore
PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?
Exiler: Make Them
Suffer, Veil of Maya, Despised Icon, Thy Art is Murder, Born of Osiris,
AngelMaker, Dealey Plaza and Infant Annihilator.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to the readers out there?
Exiler: Follow your dreams. Even if you’re at a young age, start a band or do what you want with your life. Because no one else can change you.

Interview with Laws of Interia!

Genre(s): Hardcore/Metal

Location: Hackettstown, NJ / Ogden, UT

PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Laws of Inertia” for your band?

LOI: Before Laws of Inertia was around, my friend Matt and I were in a band
called Sum of all Fears. We never did anything; we had like two songs
and never played anywhere so Matt proposed the idea to start a more
serious, more technical project called Laws of Inertia. I’m not positive
why he came up with it, but it sounds cool so it stuck. Matt also is no
longer a part of the band.

haven’t released an EP or album since August of 2013, but have released
several singles over the course of 2014. When can we expect a new EP or
a full album?

LOI: Currently, Spencer and I are writing a full album that should be out
this summer. We released a few singles this year because we wanted to
show everyone our new vocalist and give a taste of what’s to come this
year. The EP that was out last August was totally done by me and was
rushed. In short, it sucks kinda. The new album, however, is having much
more work put into it so it should be pretty cool.

PSAB: If you had the chance to share the stage with any band, which band would that be?

David: I would really love to share the stage with Veil of Maya because
Marc has had a huge impact on how I play guitar.
Spencer: Oh man, I
would have to say The Contortionist. They are unlike any other band in
my opinion.

PSAB: What are the top five bands that play an influence on your music the most?

David: Veil of Maya, The Black Dahlia Murder, Parkway Drive, Lorna
Shore, and Whitechapel probably

Spencer: Between The Buried and Me, Veil
of Maya, Lorna Shore, The Contortionist, and Suicide Silence

PSAB: How is the local metal scene in Hackettstown, NJ and/or Ogden, UT?

David: The whole Northern Jersey scene is great. Lorna Shore and
Existence are both from here so it’s cool seeing them both blow up now
in the metal community. There are always shows to go to with tons of
really great bands with loads of potential.

Spencer: Ogden’s metal scene
really fucking blows in my opinion. There are some cool bands but the
last cool thing to come from my area was Chelsea Grin. Though they are
not from Ogden, they are from SLC which is just forty five minutes away
from Ogden. I really wish I could see this scene be where it used to be.
Back in 2004-2008 was a really booming time for Ogden but since then it
has severely slowed down.

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

David: I know we’re not huge, but I’d like to thank anyone who has ever
listened to, downloaded, shared, or done anything else regarding our
music. Pig Squeals and Breakdowns has hugely helped us get our name out.
Daimien Hartranft of Get JIGGY With It and Shawn Rhude of Afflicted
Records are my dudes. Anyone else who has helped LOI and me, you know
who you are. Right now we don’t have anything super-cool out, but I can
assure you that our upcoming album will slay.

Spencer: I just wanna say
thanks to anyone who has ever taken the time to listen to our music. Rob
Donnelly who is the owner of Terror Tracks who has helped me since the
beginning. A HUGE thanks to Pig Squeals and Breakdowns for always
helping us out and exposing us to the music scene! And one last big
thanks to everyone who ever took the time out of their day to
listen/share/like us or support in any way, Big things are to come so be
sure to keep up to date!

dedication this area holds is at a level unseen my most of the nation’s
eye.PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?
