Interview with Improper Burial!

Genre(s): Progressive Deathcore
Location: Derby, KS
PSAB: Where does the band name “Improper Burial” come from?
IB: The name improper burial was picked by our two guitarists Andrew and
Jacob one night while they were drinking some beers. They were talking
about how not giving a person an appropriate burial was considered
really bad luck in most cultures and religions so it just came to.
PSAB: You released your album Forced Lobotomy back in late 2013. How has the feedback been for that album?
IB:  Overall the feedback has been really good considering we tracked the
whole thing out of our guitarists basement. But people seem to dig it
and we put a lot of work into the album itself. I just cant wait to see
what we drop next.
PSAB: What bands did you listen to growing up? Do those same bands influence your music now?
IB: I mainly grew up on Metallica, Nirvana, The Offspring, Korn, and Disturbed. But as far as today goes the only bands that might be
influencing our sounds overall would probably be Metallica and Nirvana.
PSAB: Why did you choose to play the type of metal you play?
IB: We’ve just developed our own sound and its heavy and progressive.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Derby, KS?
IB: The city of Derby itself isn’t really a hub for the music scene but its
neighboring cities, Wichita and Haysville on the other hand. Have a
descent scene but its nothing like it was three years ago or so.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to the readers and fans out there?
IB: We’d like to thank anyone and everyone thats bought our album or
attended a show we’ve played. We appreciate your continued support and
we’ll keep doing it as long as we enjoy what we do and our fans love
what we do.
Questions answered by Kody Richardson, the vocalist of the band.

Unbibium – CXXII [REVIEW]

Genre(s): Progressive Deathcore
CXXII is Unbibium’s debut EP, and was released on May 1, 2014 through Razor Tooth Records. The band combines elements of beatdown hardcore and progressive metal to bring a heavy-hitting sound of progressive deathcore. However, even though it is on the side of heaviness, nothing really stands out in the EP. I will go more into detail later about that.
 The EP is seven tracks long and provides the listener with roughly 30 minutes worth of listening material. For the price they put on the album, it is worth the purchase. Unbibium combines elements beatdown with progressive metal, but in some songs there is more of one than the other. The more progressive songs on the album are “Obsession,” “Perilous Progress,” and “Monsters.” The others that are more on the beatdown side of things are “Lions,” “War Machine,” and “CXXII.” The last song, “Destroyer,” has a nice combination of both beatdown and progressive. That being said, “Destroyer” is my favorite song on the album.
CXXII is a solid EP and is a step in the right direction for Unbibium. They have released a well put together deathcore album, and the only thing they can do is improve upon CXXII with their next release. To reiterate what I said in the introduction, nothing really stood out to me in the album. I found myself listening to it and not realizing I was on the last song, as the songs sound very similar and mesh together in a listen through, even with the songs’ respective differences. Other than that, CXXII is well worth the asking fee, so pick it up if you’re into progressive deathcore with beatdown influences!Score: 3.5/5
