From: Vancouver, WA
Sounds like: Punk Metal




1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Within Sight” and is there any meaning behind it?

Steven Carlson and Grant Evans originally started the band playing guitar together. Steven has a huge Metallica influence that carved the metal side of Within Sight. Grant's musical background has a lot more punk essence like A Day To Remember. Within Sight was the perfect name for the band because Steven and Grant felt that all their goals as a band were within sight as long as they worked harder every day to get better.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music? How has the response to "The Distance Traveled" album been since its release?

That we are a aggressive and positive outlet for anyone of any age. It has been greatly anticipated by all of our fans. Its been nothing but positive vibes from its release.


3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

Very aggressive, Catchy and positive along with a beautiful melodic sound.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

A LOT OF ENERGY AND CROWD INVOLVEMENT. We are not just a band, we are entertainers as well.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Bullet For My Valentine (Grant), Fightstar (Jeremy) and Wovenwar (Steven).


6. Any crazy show stories? Meeting a Drag queen, that happened to be the vocalist of one of the bands we were sharing the stage with. Then our drummer fell off the drum riser in the middle of a song , this was only our SECOND show.


7. What’s your take on the current state of punk/metal?

It seems extincted, there are so many sub-genres of metal now days that it all sounds the same. Breakdown Breakdown Breakdown, Chorus, Breakdown, Super Slow Breakdown.... Within sight is creating a new sound of punk metal that includes guitar solos with some breakdowns and pretty choruses.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in the Washington both locally and state wide?

It's alive and well but every metal band sounds the same. Within sight stands out from every band in the area.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

As long as we are making fans illegal downloading is okay. We are not agreeing its right to do but we want to get our music out there. If our music is good enough to steal then it must be good.


10. What’s next for Within Sight?

Touring and making fans. We want to promote our new album "The Distance Traveled" but are currently working hard on the next album.


11. Any shoutouts?

We will give NO shoutouts to our producer who recorded "The Distance Traveled" because he screwed us over. Its a long story. But we will give a shoutout to our main music influences who helped us write our album. Wovenwar, Bullet For My Valentine, Metallica, Trivium, A Day To Remember, Fightstar, Charlie Simpson, Breaking Benjamin, and The Plot In You. And we cant forget our fans. If it wasn't for them we would not have made it this far. Music is our outlet and and our passion, we write music to move people in their thoughts and hearts.

Atlanta, GA rock band Chasing December gets interviewed and talks about their upcoming album, recent member changes and more new things coming soon.

www.facebook.com/chasingdecemberband
From: Atlanta, GA
Sounds like: Rock




1. The band has recently gone through some changes, would you discuss them and how they've affected the band and the sound?

Our focus has been directed toward our live show and how to produce the best possible experience for everyone in the room. Writing with our current lineup is better than ever and each member contributes hugely to each song and to every show.


2. How has the response been to your "New Orleans" single? Why the city influence on the track?

So far, many hits on our page for it. New Orleans has got a vibe about it that we think everyone can relate to and it has a vision of a story we are telling them. The name comes from a trip Sebastian took to New Orleans, and also due to the songwriting having direct influences from music famously originating from that city.


3. Any plans for an upcoming EP/album? Release date?

Our upcoming self-titled release will be a full LP featuring 8 original tracks and our highly requested cover, Carol of the Bells. It will be released on December 19th at The Brewhouse in Rome, Ga.


4. How has your live show changed, if at all since the member changes?

The chemistry on stage has never been better. The energy we give to the audience now has seen a major increase, and we keep turning our shows into big productions for everyone who comes to see us play.


5. What are your current favorite songs/albums?

Everyone in the band has been diggin’ Sonic Highways by The Foo Fighters lately. Some other bands we listen to are Alice in Chains, Pink Floyd, and Zeppelin.


6. With big names dropping from streaming services, what's your take on the services?

It’s convenient for the listeners but it’s questionable how much credit, royalties, or advantage artists actual acquire from it.


7. What's your favorite track of yours to perform live?

We all love playing “Drifting Apart” and “New Orleans”. Both songs affect the audience in different ways so it’s cool to see people respond to it so well. Honestly though, it’s extremely hard to pick any of them, we love playing them all.


8. Any plans to shoot a music video for an upcoming song?

Yes! Very soon actually. Probably won’t be until spring, but we plan on making that a reality very soon.


9. What's next for Chasing December?

More shows!! New album!! All new merchandise as well. There’s a lot on the horizon and we keep maintaining a steady pace. We just finished the album, and we’ve also begun recording more material. Always moving toward bigger and better things.


10. Any shoutouts?

We would like to give a big shoutout to the band STATION 7!! We will be playing 3 shows with them this month and cant wait to kick it off this Saturday at Sweetwater Bar/Grill in Duluth, Ga.!!

Lincolnshire, UK melodic hardcore band Savour The Silence gets interviewed and talks about the UK music scene, their crazy show story and their upcoming plans.
www.facebook.com/savourthesilenceband
www.facebook.com/savourthesilenceband
From: Lincolnshire, UK
Sounds like: Melodic Hardcore




1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Savour The Silence” and is there any meaning behind it?

We love all music its been apart of all our lives and it would be a great privilege to be apart of that world. We decided that we didn't want to fit into a specific genre and be held in by some kind of barrier of expectancy. Well I guess really we first met at a Bring Me The Horizon gig in Nottingham after Charlie and Jack had been talking about getting a band started. And we never looked back. Josh came up with the name. There is a meaning behind it which is that there is a women at Josh, Charlie and Cormac's work that in a word is very loud, anyway she left to go on holiday and on the day before she was meant to come back Charlie reminded Josh and Josh said "oh s*** well we better Savour The Silence".


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music? How has the response to "You Can't Keep A Secret If There Never Was A Secret To Start" EP been since its release?

We would hope that the our listeners would take a sense of unexpectancy. With the way are songs are written, we would hope that there isn't a pattern or a none defined break between songs like it sounds like one big song. The response to the EP has been really great and we've had some good constructive criticism from other bands. We don't mind really if people have an opinion on it because we don't have to act on what they say but if it genuine and constructive it's something we'd definitely look at.


3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

I'm not sure how we would describe it but I guess we'd have to say something that can both get you fired up and brutal but also remember the song and recognize which ones which, with nice melodic parts to chill you out.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

We would hope to give a show full of energy and get the crowd involved as much as possible and hope it would still be talked about days later.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Beartooth, While She Sleeps and A Day To Remember.


6. Any crazy show stories?

Yeah we did a gig in Birmingham and Jack the lead singer was bringing the mic to his face to start the intro and ended up pulling his nose ring out and bleeding so much that it looked like a Cradle Of Filth music video.


7. What’s your take on the current state of hardcore?

Well we think there isn't enough exposure on radio and stuff, it has picked up a lot but like we listen to loads of other types of music like some other bands we know, but hardcore wouldn't be listened to because it's assumed you have an issue or are an angry person, having said that it does seem to have picked up in recent years and we want to do everything possible the expose this kind of music and get it heard across the world.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in the UK both locally and state wide?

Well we've never been to the states as a band so not sure on that. And here in England it's still seems to be growing, it's small but gaining momentum and we're getting more and more fans.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

Our view is that you should really support the bands you love and help them continue in creating what you love to hear.


10. What’s next for Savour The Silence?

2015 is gonna be a big year pushing everything up a gear. We are looking to get an album out and do are first tour among other things.


11. Any shoutouts?

Shout out to James "the badger" Hill. Dan jango the manager kind of. James the chin punching Kirkby. Lewis Toyne Toyne Toyne. Scott the white labyrinth cook. Rich the chode humphrey. Merch man brad.

Washington, DC rock band Low Battery gets interviewed and talks about the Washington DC music scene, their crazy show story and their upcoming plans.

www.facebook.com/lowbatterymusic
From: Washington, DC
Sounds like: Rock



1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Low Battery” and is there any meaning behind it?

We've all individually been playing music since we were old enough to walk. But used it as a stress relief in school. We got together by forming our “garage band” at parties in the basement of college house. We eventually entered a battle of the bands and loved the feeling of playing live. No other feeling is greater. The name is something we intend for listeners to carry with them (as a phone or laptop on it’s last juice of power). It is something we carry with us. Throughout our lives together we have shared some of the best times and some of the worst experiences. We have grown up together during the most pivotal times in our lives. Some things we will never forget and take with us. We could never really figure out how we got through them, but we still moved on. Something driving us forward and keeping us going. That last charge of energy and power getting us through the darkest times. That was what low battery was for us. It’s our way to getting through the hardest moments in our lives and giving it meaning.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music? How has the response to "From The Basement" EP been since its release?

That we are fun guys that love all styles of music. We focus on true sound that is stripped down to core elements (bass, beats, and guitars). We want to be known for caring more about how we make people feel than our name or pride. The response has been very positive. At our last show we had fans singing our lyrics as we played them and that is what it is all about. Having fun while allowing people to have fun and be a part of their lives – even if it is just for the moment.


3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

Garage Band alternative.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

A lot of energy, full range of musical styles, a lot of different instruments and sporadic rap. We like to make our shows something that the crowd gets involved in. We add different themes and breaks in our set which allows the listener to engage in the overall show experience.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?
The Get Up Kids, Blink 182, and Motion City Soundtrack.


6. Any crazy show stories?

Our first show at the Fillmore we shared a band room with a band called Social Repose. Without saying anything this band walked in, hung up what looked to be a white hazmat suit, said it needed to dry and left. We were so confused. However, at the end of the show they became our friends and the guy with the suit ended up coming to our house party afterward and passing under our kitchen table after a long night of partying.


7. What’s your take on the current state of rock?

There is a need for a revival of rock which refers back to it's roots. There is a lot of great talent, although all of it may not be what we are into, they are the ones making a name for themselves and are doing what they love. Performances get better and better. We can only strive to be as big as the bands we critique.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in the Washington, DC both locally and state wide?

The music scene is pretty intense in DC. You have a lot of neighboring suburbs in Maryland and Virginia so it all funnels into DC which is great. There aren't bid name artists that stick around, but the local scene is thriving. These local bands that play deserve all the credit and accolades in the world. Truly talented performers. Dave Grohl grew up here and he is one of the success stories we aim to emulate.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

If you’re good at something never do it for free, as The Joker from The Dark Knight taught us. People are going to do it, but as long as people hear our music, we are happy.


10. What’s next for Low Battery?

Fine tune our recordings, going on tour, new music and lots of shows.


11. Any shoutouts?

1036/1038 NEIBS, Fig Newtons (Figgies), our dear friends and family who have been there through it all.

Rochester, NY alternative rock band Red Letter Statement recently released their "Love People" EP. Below is our review.
www.facebook.com/redletterstatement
www.facebook.com/redletterstatement
From: Rochester, NY
Sounds like: Alternative Rock



Rochester, NY alternative rock Red Letter Statement back in May of 2014 released their "Love People" EP. This EP should be on any rock fans playlist. "Fire Inside" starts things off with an upbeat radio single quality track. The track brings to mind the high energy of Last Winter, early The Wedding or Anberlin. "Roadhouse" has a dash of post hardcore to it while still maintaining the catchy modern rock sound. The track is solid throughout. "The Rain" is a bit of a slow buildup song that emphasizes the passion that the band brings to the table. Brand New fans will dig the track. "Interlude" is a nice break to the EP. The somber tone instrumental track really fits in with the previous track. "Estimation Of The Heart" is a great companion track to "The Rain". It's got the making of a great relationship track. The song is very personal and intimate. The track has a similarity to Red Jumpsuit Apparatus's "Your Guardian Angel" track. "Ionas" closes out the EP the way it started with a more upbeat track. It's a fantastic track and brings to mind Funeral For A Friend with its high energy and great melodies. The track and EP just work all around.

Verdict:
If you're looking for rock music with an edge and heart, look no further. Red Letter Statement have the goods. The band has a lot of depth to their songs and we personally can't wait to hear more.

Jyvaskyla, Finland melodic metal band Prayed And Betrayed gets interviewed and talks about the Finnish metal scene, their after parties and their upcoming plans.
www.facebook.com/prayedandbetrayed
www.facebook.com/prayedandbetrayed
From: Jyvaskyla, Finland
Sounds like: Melodic Death Metal



1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Prayed And Betrayed” and is there any meaning behind it?

The first idea of the band emerged in late 2011 when Antti and Panu were just jamming and trying out some riffs. The actual band was formed at summer 2012 when rest of the members were found. As the band started to make material the style started to shape. The first EP were more or less traditional death metal, but after that the band has developed their own sound. The latest EP could be described as modern/melodic death metal, and this is the path that the band is happy to go along. The bands name itself doesn't have that much of a deeper meaning. That just sounds cool and goes very well with our lyrical themes.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music? How has the response to the "The Abundance Of A Sickened Mind" EP been since its release?

There are lots of things going on in our songs. We mix different things like evil sounding leads, killer riffing and technical solos, everything blends in nicely and different sections keeps the songs interesting and you wont worn out the songs with just a few listening. There are many elements to pay attention to. Guitar leads, versatile drumming and all the instruments in general.


3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

Fresh sounding modern/melodic death metal with technical and brutal impression in the songs. Memorable songs with nice hooks, impressive technical performing and also some catchy groove.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

Lots of energy, blood and sweat, great metal experience and awesome after party!


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

This is a very hard one since there are like million bands to name.. But lets say Hypocrisy, COB, Kataklysm. Those are bands that gave us lot of inspiration when creating this band.


6. Any crazy show stories?

Haha, well nothing too crazy within the shows, things usually get out of hand afterwards.. But there's always some little things going wrong. For example couple of shows ago Otto tried some epic jump and landed face first on the drum set, it took him a while to get back on his feet but he managed. And our latest shows at the moment almost got cancelled since our singer went to a ditch with his car.


7. What’s your take on the current state of metal?

We think that metal scene in general is doing well. Excluding the obvious fact that CDs sales are constantly decreasing. There are many interesting bands out there. At least here in Finland there are new bands coming non-stop. The scene is actually very crowded and it makes it harder to stand out. But it's definitely not all bad. It is relatively easy to get gigs here since there are always someone to play with. Here in Finland metal music is luckily pretty mainstream so lot of venues takes metal bands, and actually prefers them.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in the Finland both locally and country wide?

See the answer above about the Finnish scene. Locally here in Jyväskylä there are huge bunch of metal bands, many of those are even quite big. For example Ghost Brigade, Lost Society and Frosttide are local bands that are doing well now.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

You got to accept both of those since there is nothing you can do about it. Of course it is reasonable to show the artist your support and buy their material/merch/go to shows.


10. What’s next for Prayed And Betrayed?

We are done with our gigs for this autumn and we will be focusing on making some new stuff. But already early next year we will start touring Finland.


11. Any shoutouts?

Check out our music if you haven't already, come to see the shows (it's really worth it) and subscribe us on Facebook! Thanks to everyone who already did this! See you soon!

New York, NY indie rock band Mind Over Time recently released their "Ghosts" EP. Below is our review.
www.facebook.com/mindovertime
www.facebook.com/mindovertime
From: New York, NY
Sounds like: Indie Rock



Mind Over Time are an indie rock band from New York, NY releasing the follow up EP to their "A New Kind Of Romance" album. The EP starts off with the atmospheric build up track "Always". The two minute track is a nice introduction to the EP. "Katrine" is a driving wall of sound. The track brings to mind The Killers and really lets loose with its more rock undertones. "Under The Light" slows things down a bit. The track is very radio friendly and would be in the same vein as Breaking Benjamjn or Skillet. "By The River" brings the pace back up. The song is catchy as hell and should be a single. Your foot and fingers will be tapping along while the chorus gets stuck in your head. "Am I Dreaming?..." takes a bit for the vocals to come in but once they do, it almost feels like a spacey interlude track. "Space Dust" is the last track on the EP and it contains five minutes of musical superiority within. The EP closes way too quickly. "Juns Creek" is a bonus track and really continues where "Space Dust" left off. It's a good track and EP to lose yourself in.

Verdict:
Mind Over Time have evolved their sound since their last album. Everything now is tighter, more polished and somehow, more catchy. Mind Over Time are an indie rovk fans dream come true.
