Interview with Overcoming The End!

1399577_219220051571816_872647425_o

Genre(s): Metalcore/Progressive
Location: Berlin, EU
PSAB: Where did the band name “Overcoming The End” come from exactly?
OTE: We have had many difficult situations in our lifes. One year ago, our old band disbanded because of personel reason between our members. I wasn’t even sure, if we both would make music together again. we had many complicated situations in our lives and we didn’t know where our paths would lead us to. There were times when we questioned everything and were even talking about ‘the end’. With the name ‘Overcoming The End’ we want to deliver, that even if there are hugh changes in your life eradicating everything good before, it’s not the end of the story. the change itself is the step to overcome your self-proclaimed end.
PSAB: When can your fans expect new music from you?
OTE: We hit the studio last December and worked on our debut full-length album, which is a concept album about a man living in our world in the year 2399 – this shows many parallels to the world, we currently live in. The tracking is already finished and our stuff has just to be mixed and mastered. We expect it to be finished in the fall 2014.
PSAB: If you had the chance to any musician featured in your music. What musician would that be?
OTE: It would definitely be either Alex Koehler (Chelsea Grin) or Spencer Chamberlain (Sleepwave; Ex-Underoath) because they both were a huge influence in our music life. A guitar solo played by John Petrucci in one song would also be really awesome!
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Berlin, EU?
OTE: We moved here 2 months ago because of the great metal scene here. International bands like War From a Harlots Mouth, Science Of Sleep or We Butter The Bread With Butter have their roots here and Berlin is the chance for us to move forward.
PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?
OTE: We are influenced by many different kinds of music. The greatest influence certainly comes from deathcore bands like Chelsea Grin, Fit For An Autopsy, Whitechapel or Thy Art Is Murder. But we’re also influenced by rock bands like Fall Out Boy, Papa Roach, A Day To Remember or Hoobastank and metal/hardcore bands like Underoath, Parkway Drive or Architects. Otherwise, the symphonic aspect of our music comes from bands like Evanescence, Nightwish or Lacuna Coil. We just don’t want to do the same kind of music, that every deathcore band plays today – we want to have our own progressive style.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans?
OTE: We are Overcoming The End – a new, ambitious band from Europe – and we would be really happy about your support! Our debut full-length album will be released in a few months and we hope to have your attention for it! \m/

Interview with Stillness Before The Storm!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Parker, CO
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “Stillness Before The Storm” for your band?
SBTS: To
be quite honest when we picked the name we weren’t quite thinking about
how we might be able to fit that title, we just kinda picked something
that sounded different than other metalcore bands in the scene. Now we
feel like we fit the name musically and also lyrically. 

PSAB: You recently released a new single, “Motion Of Thought” on the 26th of May. How has the feedback been for that single?
SBTS: Motion of Thought was really our first song that was unanimously loved
throughout the band and with confidence I can say that most of the
feedback has been quite positive. It’s our first song with clean vocals!
We released through Pure Deathcore, and they seem to have a pretty
stubborn fanbase, but even with clean vocals and multiple melodies we
have been able to please even the most stubborn listeners.
PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band, which band would that be?
SBTS: As a whole, sbts has had probably too many influences over the years.
Out of all the band’s that have made us who we are, August burns Red has
been a band favorite. Sharing the stage with those guys would be
unreal.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in your area?
SBTS: Starting a band in Denver, CO gave us sort of an advantage in saying
that the metal scene here is quite strong. I could name just about 15 or
so local bands that are genuinely good and well known across the scene.
Most of the community is friendly and are willing to help eachother out
and make the scene fun and enjoyable.
PSAB: What non-metal bands have played an influence on your music?
SBTS: For me personally, I listen to a lot of NON metal more than metal haha.
Just to start, bon iver, Dave Matthews, John butler trio, drake, Ellie
goulding,the 1975 , st. Lucia, have all influenced my playing and
songwriting greatly. In fact, the intro to the song the Angels walk by
us and the Outro of motion of thought were both inspired and were sort
of a tribute to John Butler.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?
SBTS: As for shout outs, us as a band couldn’t be more happy with our fans. We
have never paid for a single like and have hit 1000 likes with ease. I
want to just say to the fans keep spreading the storm and keep your eyes
open for our upcoming EP Welcome to the Rapture!!!Thanks guys !!

All questions answered by Conor Amanatullah, the drummer of SBTS.

Interview with Roads To Nowhere!

1602186_682446941807253_397647161_o

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!

Interview with Pangaea!

pangaea

Genre(s): Progressive Metalcore
Location: Wisconsin
PSAB: What does the band name “Pangaea” mean exactly?

PG: Pangaea is the supercontinent that formed around 300 million years ago. All of the continents today were once all connected as one giant land mass. Due to continental drift we have the continents in their current locations. The name Pangaea is derived from Ancient Greek with PAN meaning “entire”, and GAIA meaning “Mother Earth.”PSAB: How has the feedback been for your recently released EP Unified?

PG: The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. We are humbled by all of the kind words we have received so far from people who have downloaded Unified and from those who have seen us live.PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band, which band would it be and why?

PG: Between the Buried and Me. It would be a huge honor since they’ve been playing for so many years in a style that is truly their own. They have never conformed or stopped creating music that is meaningful to them.

PSAB: What are your plans for this upcoming summer? Tour? Record?

PG: We have a couple of tours in the works for this spring/summer. We
are heading to the east coast with our Wisconsin brothers in Ocellus in
May. Keep an eye open on our Facebook page for the tour dates. No plans
to record at the moment with Unified just coming out but we are always writing new music.PSAB: Which bands play the most influence on your music?

PG: The Contortionist, Sikth, Veil of Maya, Mastodon, and Between the Buried and Me to name a few.PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to the readers out there?

PG: We would just like to thank everyone who has taken the time to
listen to our music, see us play live, read this interview, and picked
up merch. Some people have even sent donations while downloading our EP
(which is free on our Bandcamp). We can’t thank them enough for that.
Also, all of the bands we’ve had the chance to share the stage with have
been awesome. No egos, no BS, just local bands that support each other.
We definitely want to give our dudes in Ocellus a shout out for taking
us on the road this May! And thank you, Micah, for supporting us and
doing this interview!

Interview with Abandoned World!

1901914_605651502853680_1452617536_n

Genre(s): Deathcore/Metalcore
Location: Stockholm
PSAB: Where does the band name “Abandoned World” come from?
AW: At first Abandoned World was just a project name for the band. It was
our former singer who came up with it and we decided to use it until we
could come up with something better. But in the end we fell for the
name because of it’s different meanings for us in the band and our fans.PSAB: When can we expect to hear new music from your band?
AW: We are going to release a new song in a few weeks and then hopefully will we have a new EP out in the end of April!PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Stockholm, Sweden?
AW: The local metal scene here in Stockholm is pretty rough for a “core”
band like us. The only music that swedes likes here is Iron Maiden and
Metallica. But the amount of smaller stages and such are very easy to
find in Stockholm!

PSAB: If you could be signed to any record label, which label would that be and why?

AW: We all have our different taste of music and labels in the band so thats
a very hard question. In the end I think the choice would stand between
Roadrunner, Metalblade or Sumerian records!

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

AW: Keep on spreading the word about the band and its music! A new song will
soon be released along with some awesome news for our foreign fans in
Europe!
