Review: M.H.X’s Chronicles – Infinite Ocean


One of the things about M.H.X’s Chronicles you’ll notice straight out of the gate, is their unrelenting faithfulness to true melodic death metal. Never straying too far from the tried and true patterns and layouts of most melodic death metal, M.H.X’s Chronicles stands out in it’s exceptional impact and in the obvious care taken to craft it’s many riffs, verses and choruses. Even the faster, heavier sections of Infinite Ocean seem to be deliberately chosen and written to balance and counterbalance the melodic verses and choruses. When talking about all that Infinite Ocean encompasses and holds within itself, it really is large as the ocean.

Interview with Plague of Purity!


Genre(s): Melodic Death Metal
Location: N/A
PSAB: Why did you choose “Plague of Purity” for your band name?
POP: I’m glad you asked as
that is a frequently asked question I get. Purity is what strives us to move
forward, its our goal as we work to be a better person. Being as the goal is
unreachable to be completely pure. I view it as a plague to spend your life working
towards something you can never be, and with that the name Plague Of Purity was
born.PSAB: You’re currently working on a new album, now that you’re a full-fledged band. When can we expect the new album to drop?

POP: We haven’t determined
a release date with our label yet so don’t quote me on it, but I’d say I think
we can expect it this fall.
PSAB: You’ve played many different bands, which band has been your favorite to share the stage with?
POP: I can’t really choose a favorite band but my favorite show as a Death tribute show we did at the continental club in Oakland. We played with Splattered, Logistic Slaughter, Hemotoxin, Behold The Desecration and some more awesome bands. That night was amazing and those guys were my favorite bands to share the stage with.
PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music? This can be non-music related.
POP:  I guess it would be my mentality of my youth, a kind of “the world is
against me” attitude. I put that into this band and the lyrical content
on the new record ranges from corruption, to insanity being the true
reality and things that I would give to my 15 year old self and give him
something to rage too. 

: There are many, many, sub-genres of metal, so why did you choose to play the type of metal that you do?
POP: We honestly don’t even know what type of metal we are. Melodic
Deathcore? Death Metal? I really don’t know and to be honestly I don’t
really care. I just play what I love to play and whatever sub-genre that
falls under doesn’t really matter to me. Part of the reason I don’t
know what we are is because our songs are all super different. We have a
Nu Metalish song on the new album as well as a song that gives you a
black metal vibe even a Metalcore sounding song, so who ever is reading
this. Give us a listen and tell me what you think we are, because the
band really doesn’t know either haha.
PSAB: Have any shout outs to give to the readers, and your fans out there?
POP: I’d like to give a shout out to all our fans that bought a shirt, came out to a show and grabbed a demo! you guys are beyond awesome for believing in us! Readers unfamiliar with us, check us out! Anyone that supports my dream is a friend of mine so don’t be shy to friend us on Facebook either!

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.
