Interview with Burning Skies!

Genre(s): Progressive Metal
Location: Kansas City, MO
PSAB: Why did you decide to choose the name “Haunting Skies” for your band?
HS: Really at the time we actually had a different line up, and when we came
up with that name, it sounded pretty cool, and now the name has really
grown a sort of meaning for us now.

PSAB: You’re currently working on new music for a new album for 2014. When can we expect that album to drop?

HS: Absolutely, we are currently working on a concept album titled “The
Endless Grey” which is still currently being written, and hopefully that
could drop around 2015 with the proper support behind us.

PSAB: How has the experience been being managed by Damon Moreno?

HS: Its been rather well, he always hooks us up with the best deals that
bands like ourselves need to have, and is always looking to get our
music into the hands of a possible new connection and searching for
possible tour opportunities. We like what he has done for us even for
only working with him for about 5 months. We can’t wait to see whats to
come next with this partnership!

PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Kansas City, MO?

HS: Its a very welcoming place. We all treat each other like as if we were
part of some brotherhood, and its very welcoming to a newer up and
coming band like ourselves. We love the people of KC and are proud to be
from here!

PSAB: What one band plays the most influence on your music?

HS: I suppose, if it was one band, Dream Theater… but we get much… much heavier.

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

HS: Shout outs go to Jacob Means, Michael Manley, Anthony Pierce, and
all our close friends and family of Haunting Skies, we love you all!

Interview with Aechoes!

Genre(s): Progressive Hardcore
Location: Las Vegas, NV
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Aechoes” for your band?AECH: We wanted to create
a name that meant something but wasn’t obvious or literal. We didn’t
want a single word that was a pluralized noun because we saw that it was
going to be an upcoming trend and didn’t want to get pigeonholed into a
particular genre. We came up with it in 2010 before the huge wave of
“nouns” bands. As you see we didn’t stick to our original plan.

PSAB: How
was the feedback when you released The Human Condition? Are you still
receiving feedback now?

AECH: We originally wrote the album at the end of
2010, and recorded it a couple months later at the beginning of 2011. We
immediately released some album samples and a single. Those samples
gained a lot of attention in a short period of time. Unfortunately while
we were shopping for a label and finalizing contracts the album got
pushed back for over a year. It was finally release in 2012. It still
gained a decent following but we felt the album was outdated because of
the long delay.

PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band ever,
which band would that be?

AECH: Fortunately we have shared the stage with
dozens of bands we listen and look up. It’s pretty awesome that we call a
lot of these bands our friends. It’s really hard to pick just one band.
A huge touring festival show would be our ideal stage to share. If we
got to play with hologram Tupac that would be pretty sweet too.

PSAB: What
is the local metal scene like in Las Vegas, NV?

AECH: Unfortunately it’s not
what it use to be. Venues open and close several times a year do to a
number of reasons. The city of Las Vegas (government) is not very
supportive of venues and small businesses. Also the metal music
community isn’t very supportive. Bands have a competitive attitude vs a
supportive attitude. On tour we have learned Vegas isn’t the best scene
but it certainly isn’t the worst. Hopefully we can lead by example by
continuing to have a positive attitude, and a supportive mindset.

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

AECH: All the bands we play with and listen to influence and inspire
us greatly. We hate to give a cliche answer but our passion for music
influences us the most. We hope that our music will enlighten people, or
at least make someone’s day better.

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

AECH: There are so many fans and
friends out there that give us a lot of support so it’s hard to name
names without someone feeling left out. So, sorry if you feel left out!
Here’s a few of our biggest supporters; Kyle Young from Las Vegas, Matt
“Trousers” from Ballarat, Australia, and Corey Bennett from the band
Bermuda. Like we said there are so many more people we are thankful for
and we will thank you in person the next time we see you!!!!!!

Interview with Sykosis!

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!!!

Interview with Roads To Nowhere!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Chippenham, England
PSAB: Where did the band name “Roads To Nowhere” come from exactly?RTN:An old vocalist came up with it randomly and the name stuck! We started
out at a time where every band name involved heaven, hell or some kind
of blood and guts and we wanted to stay away from that, “Roads to
Nowhere” got suggested and stuck!

PSAB: How was the feedback when you released your EP Dead World? Also, when is the music video coming out?

RNT: Critically, we got a great response from Dead World, and it never got a
bad review, we got a really good reception from it, it was the first
decent release we had and it helped with getting gigs and spreading our
name around. It was our first proper release and has given us a lot to
think about going forward! Our upcoming music video is for a single that
will be on the next album called “Beneath” and is being shot on the
26th April! No fixed release date yet but we’ll be sure to let you know!

PSAB: You’re currently unsigned, if you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?

RNT: This one was a question where each of us gave quite different answers!
Sumerian, Metal Blade, Artery Recordings, Epitaph, Roadrunner and
Nuclear Blast were all mentioned, amongst others!

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

RNT: Chippenham is only a very small town so the scene is fairly limited,
though if you go back a few years there were some great DIY shows where
50 odd people would cram into a tiny hall to see bands. We are very
lucky in that Chippenham has great transport links and as a result we
are very involved in the Bristol music scene which is currently
thriving!

PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?

RNT: As a band we have a huge range of influences and the music we listen to
in the Van will range from Meshuggah to James Brown with near enough
everything in between. Upon a Burning Body (Who we were lucky enough
support) Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, Parkway Drive and Thy Art is
Murder are all huge influences though!

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

RTN: Thank you to everyone in the Roads family (you know who you are!) for
the support and helping us continue to do what we love doing!
