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

David (Lead Singer): We've always been into metal from a young age. Jake and I have a long history writing music together, starting back in high school. Our taste in metal has always been similar and has evolved into the creation of State Of Decadence. Both Jake and I thought of the name State Of Decadence. We believe it reflects the state of our world in general, economically, culturally, etc. Also we just thought it sounded cool :) Starting off as a two piece, we've recently added two guitarists to our line up, Matt and Laurie which we feel will drive State Of Decadence's sound to a more elite level.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music?

David (Lead Singer): As the sole lyric composer, I want people to take whatever interpretation of my lyrics they want. Everyone's different and interprets songs in their own way. That's all I ask from our listeners. That hopefully the listener will take his or her own idea or meaning from our music.


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

Jake (Drummer): It's heavy. It's probably not for the average listener haha. We definitely don't have the average listener in mind when we think of our audience. If you're into metal, we just hope you dig it.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

Jake (Drummer): We haven't played a live show as of yet but when the time comes, we hope to deliver a powerful and memorable show.


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

Jake (Drummer): Whitechapel, Cannibal Corpse and Bloodbath.
David (Lead Singer): Lamb Of God, Whitechapel, and Vildhjarta.


6. Any crazy show stories?

We haven't played any shows yet.


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

We think in this day and age, metal is doing well. There's a bigger variety than ever with every genre under the sun to suit everyone's different tastes.


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

David (Lead Singer): The metal music scene in Melbourne is going strong. We've seen a lot of our favorite bands come through in the last two years. Locally the scene is strong too, we know a lot of guys playing in some heavy bands and we can't wait to get out and play some shows with them.


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

Jake (Drummer): Personally we're happy with people downloading our music. As long as people are listening to our music.


10. What’s next for State Of Decadence?

Jake (Drummer): We're working on our second single due to be released in the near future. With the addition of our guitarists and hopefully a bassist soon, we hope to write more strong material and hit the stage as soon as possible.


11. Any shoutouts?

Jake (Drummer): A massive thanks to Luke Graham for playing and recording the guitars for our first two singles. He does some amazing work and we look forward to working with LMG Productions more in the future. Also a big thanks for our friends and family for their ongoing and invaluable support.

Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil metalcore band Awaking The Crowd gets their "Make It Real" EP reviewed. Check out our take below.

www.facebook.com/atcoficial
From: Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Sounds like: Metalcore



Awaking The Crowd is a young up and coming melodic metalcore band which features clean female pop vocals along with a more harsher male vocals. The single "Don't Waste My Time" is the first track and opens with female melodic clean vocals then transitions into the male harsh metalcore vocal verse. The interchanging female cleans and male harsh vocals really work well on the track. The track features a great breakdown halfway through and reminds us the raw ferocity of The Vaine. The second track "What Are You Waiting" is a more upbeat affair with its high paced tempo. The track is extremely catchy and is melodic metalcore all the way through. "This Is My Chance" starts up churning and kicking into high gear early on. The Halestorm/Evanescence type female vocal work done on the track really showcases the track as a pure rock song. It's most radio friendly track on the EP. The closing track "You Are Not Ready For This" gets things back onto the metal aspect but still keeps things catchy as hell. The track is sure to get the live crowd moving and singing along. The sound on the track is phenomenal just like the rest of the EP. The track is excellent and makes the listener fiend for more, much more.

Verdict:
Awaking The Crowd is in the new class of Brazil metalcore that have their own style enough to make a dent in the oversaturated metalcore scene. With this only being a four song EP, the band is really kicking things off with a bang. Awaking The Crowd and their melodic (pop) metalcore sound is for real.

Trenton, NJ punk/thrash recently talked about six foot dinosaurs, their take on the stale metal genre and their upcoming plans.

www.facebook.com/localdemise
From: Trenton, NJ
Sounds like: Punk/Thrash/



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

We all started playing music from a very young age. All of us were exposed to playing instruments through family members. Travis and Dave have kin who were in bands back in the day and passed the tradition on to them. (Adam) I started playing drums when I was 5 and switched to guitar around 12 being influenced by my father and brother. It just came natural. In high school Travis asked me to fill in on drums for his previous band for a party. I told him I couldn't really play but I'd try. Unbeknownst to all of us I was pretty good. Trav and our former founding member Mike decided the best thing to do was to start a new band. I asked to play lead and sing instead of drumming. The response was "well can you?". So we found another drummer and settled on the name "Local Demise" which we picked off of a list I jotted down in math class.
The meaning? LOCAL DEMISE (ADJ.)- The ungoverned downfall of any person, place, pliable object, society, species or industry in a centralized location. As for our sound we all had a similar taste in punk rock and thrash metal so I guess we mixed that up with hardcore attitude in our riffs and catchy lyrics bing bang ba-da boom. Our sound is constantly evolving so its not uncommon for us to just bust out a sick metal thrash jam instrumental at any given time. Our influences are very wide ranged.


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music?

A good feeling that rock is still alive and well. Influence to create art and follow your dreams.


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

Hardcore thrash punk. System Of A Down meets old Megadeth and kicks their asses. Loud.


4. What can people expect from your live show?

NON STOP ACTION!!


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

The Offspring, NOFX, and System Of A Down.


6. Any crazy show stories?

So many. We did have a six foot tall plush dinosaur made as a mascot for the "Learning Disability" Album. For about three months we hand painted a 3D cardboard cityscape that was destroyed during a one hour performance. People loved it! Just throwing cardboard everywhere and beating each other senseless with buildings. Complete mayhem with recycled materials.


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

Very saturated with bands that are very similar in style in which we stand out.


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

New Jersey is great for underground music of all genres. A lot of clubs have closed but the ones that are still kicking put on awesome shows. Trenton especially. Halfway between New York And Philly I'm surprised more artists don't take advantage of our scene though a lot of big names have come out of NJ and a lot roll through. The garden state is a lot better than the bad wrap it gets. Especially when it comes to underground independent music.


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

The internet ruined the music industry. I'd rather have a CD, cassette or vinyl rather than an mp3. We try to give away our music so fans can enjoy our brand of music. There's not much I can do to prevent downloading illegally. Here take it, share it, enjoy!


10. What’s next for Local Demise?

Writing a new album and hopefully a national summer tour. New merch, new jams and new people to hang with.


11. Any shoutouts?

Yo Ice T and Body Count. Check us out we would've been a great opener for Mayhem Fest in Philly this past summer.
Gwar - Keep slaughtering.
Jerry Only - Whats up dude
Street Dogs - Thanks for chilling with us that one time.

Philadelphia, PA pop/punk band Could've Been Kings gets their "Through The Darkness" EP reviewed. Check out our take below.

www.facebook.com/couldvebeenkings
From: Philadelphia, PA
Sounds like: Pop/Punk



Philadelphia is really starting to churn out quality rock bands that have their distinct flavor to really make the Philly music scene pop once again. Could've Been Kings are a Philadelphia, PA based pop/punk/alternative rock band that is unleashing their debut "Through The Darkness" EP for all catchy rock aficionados. The first track "Something New" opens with an almost Smash Mouth melody mixed with Green Day vocals. The track throughout has pop/punk tendencies including a guitar solo that really shines on track. The track also has a "clap along" feel to it later on in the track to help its live effectiveness. The second track is "Waste Of Time" which is also their first single off the EP. The track has a buildup to its high energy chorus. The track is a perfect first single to showcase their abilities. The gang chant on the chorus later on in the track adds a unique dynamic to it as well. The third track "Summer Scene" is a perfect summer song. The track is fast and more pop/punky than the previous tracks. The track will be a favorite to any pop/punk fan young or old. "Drowning" is next up and features an almost Collective Soul "December" type introduction. The track transitions into a more upbeat punk type track with its fast guitars, drums and bass. "White Rose" slows things down a bit but is a bit funky with its groove. The track could be an incredible single on the radio and/or as a music video. The energy on the track is great and shows a different element of the band that they excel at. The last track on the EP is "Believer". The track closes things out with a track that is still full of energy and chugs along at a steady pace. It closes out the EP nicely and solidifies the EP is a must buy for any fan of pop, punk, rock or anything catchy in general.

Verdict:
Philly once again comes through with an outstanding band with an incredible debut EP. Could've Been Kings has it all. Their tracks incorporates different variations of punk, rock and pop, has powerful live capabilities with their tracks, as well as overall is just catchy as hell. Any fan of rock music should find something to love on this EP.

Philadelphia, PA alternative/indie band Sonnder gets their "Thief" EP reviewed. Check out our take on it below.
www.facebook.com/sonndermusic
www.facebook.com/sonndermusic
From: Philadelphia, PA
Sounds like: Alternative/Indie Rock



Sonnder is a alternative/indie rock band from Philadelphia, PA. The band incorporates instruments such as a violin, keyboards and percussion in conjunction with the normal guitar, drums and vocalist. Starting off the EP is the track "What Are You?". The track begins with a groovy riff and the introduction to the lead vocals, which showcases quite the vocal range off the bat. The track showcases the opening to the EP quite well. Everything within the song just works and works really well. The next track "The Chase" is a little bit more upbeat and brings to mind early works of Zero 7. Next up is the single "Too Bad You're Not In Love". The single is a perfect example of what Sonnder is all about. The song is a catchy blend of upbeat indie rock that meshes all the talents of the members perfectly. "No Regret" slows things down a bit. The track is a borderline acoustic/symphonic track. The chorus is sure to get stuck in your head as its repetitive. Even though it slows things down a bit, the track is a good transition to the closer and title track "Thief". The track "Thief" is a rocking good time. The hopping chorus and driving instrumentation keeps things at a good pace until the very end. The only issue with this EP is that it ends. Five tracks is not nearly enough.

Verdict:
If you're into indie/alternative rock, go right away and pick up this EP and check them out live. This EP is a testament that showcases the dedication and talent that Sonnder truly has. Radio stations look out, you have new indie darlings to add to your playlists.
