Melodic alternative rock/metal band GONE BAD have been around for quite a while now, releasing a two track single called "Counting Days" back in 2014. A handful of demo's and even a promo EP. The latest is another single called "Cold Enough", with another all new single track titled "Look For Entry", in the works right now. Find out what else was said below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I (B. Harrison) started Gonebad back in 2007. It turned out impossible for me to find permanent members so I ended up dismantling the band and started recording and releasing music by myself.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I noticed very early on that music was the only thing I had any interest in. I knew I was ruined and Gonebad seemed like a good word to sum it up.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I live 30 miles from the capital of Finland, Helsinki in a tiny town with a non-existent music scene.

4. How would you describe your style?

Riff-driven, melodic alternative rock/metal.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

"Counting Days", a two track single was released 2014. A lot of demos and a promo EP. Before that but nothing relevant. My latest single is "Cold Enough" and if you happen to like that one, like guitar riffs and sentimental vocal melodies, you can expect to like every other song that follows it. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we're currently finishing up a new single called "Look For Entry" and filming a video for it. It will be available hopefully sometime in March.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

The opportunities for playing shows here in Finland are few and far between so instead of spending time in the rehearsals for some random shows I rather use my time in the studio trying to build this thing up a bit first.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Right now I'm focusing on putting out enough songs for an EP and with all the videos and everything else that's probably going to take the rest of the year.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can stream Gonebad on Spotify and find it from all the digital stores. No merch available at this time.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I'd like them to remember hearing some honest music for a change. A band that doesn't go out their way trying to sound exactly like some other band.


U.K. based pop punks LIVONIA have their debut single "Talking", out now with more material coming soon enough. Discover what more the band had to express about themselves and the music that they create.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band all started in a dimly lit basement in Soho. Whilst working down there, we discovered we had a similar taste in music and started writing some songs together. Having practiced for a few months and written a few songs, we then recorded our first single over at Outhouse Studios in Reading and started playing some local gigs. This is only the beginning for us and we’re hoping 2020 will have a lot more in store!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Livonia is the ancient Greek word for ‘Destroyer of worlds’!! No, it’s not really - it’s just a tiny street in London we used to work on. It was sort of a joke name at first (we weren’t too keen on a work-related band name) but then it just stuck!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Well London is London, it’s massive. There’s so much going on here, we’re constantly watching sick bands of all levels play at incredible venues both intimate and huge. There are so many places we have on our bucket list to play. Notable bands are Basement League and Youth Illusion.

4. How would you describe your style?

We’d say we’re heavy pop punk - think Don Broco crossed with The Story So Far. The bouncy choruses but with the shouty/growly voice. We love music that makes you want to jump around and bang your head like crazy, so we try and get that across in our songs.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far, we’ve only released our single “Talking”, which is about not keeping bad energy locked up inside. We’ve had a really positive response so far so we can’t wait to get more stuff out there! Expect catchy melodies and lively riffs.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We’ve got something cooking... keep an eye out for an announcement in the coming days!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’ve got some local shows coming up but no tours as of yet, we’re hoping to do this later in the year off the back of releasing more music.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Play as many shows as we can get our hands on really. We want to get our music heard by as many people as possible, our shows just keep getting bigger, better and sweatier! So one day taking our music on tour and sharing it with other people in the middle of nowhere would definitely be an amazing feeling for us. Then I suppose get an album recorded, that would be sweet too!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

“Talking” is available to stream on all major platforms. Find everything you need to know about us on our website: www.livoniaband.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The inability to stand still while listening.


Heavy alternative rock band STONE SEA have released three pieces of content, their debut album "Orgins", followed by an EP "Vaporizer", with follow-up EP "Mankind Maze", with a handful of tracks depicting various styles of sound. The band talks much more, about themselves and the plans that lay ahead for them!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Stone Sea was started by Elvis Suhadolnik Bonesso in Brazil in 2014. That lineup crafted the band's debut album 'Origins', recorded in full by Elvis and released in 2015. In 2015 Elvis moved to Ireland and reformed the band as a 3 piece, who then recorded the next two EPs Vaporizer (2017) and Mankind Maze (2019) which saw a change in the band's sound. In 2019 a line up change brought Jonathan Parminter (bass) and Connor Middleton (drums) to the band. A line up that is much more focused on the longevity of the band and the exploration of a breakthrough sound.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The bands name is comprised of two words that oppose each other completely. ‘Stone’ symbolizes inner strength and steadfast elements in our lives, and ‘Sea’ represents life’s ever-changing and dynamic nature. Our music reflects these ideas.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Originally Sau Paulo, Brazil, but since 2016 it's been based in Dublin, Ireland. The music scene definitely has a strong presence in our city, especially for heavy music. Most venues around Dublin will host Alternative, Rock and Metal gigs, so there's always something happening. Some bands that represent the Irish heavy music scene really well would be Grey Stag, Callous Crows, and Jailbirds. They're definitely bands that everyone should know about.

4. How would you describe your style?

At the core of our music are groove-orientated riffs, but we always look for ways to incorporate various different styles into our music. For example, 'Prelude' takes inspiration from the Bossa Nova style, which we hold close to our hearts as the band began in Brazil. But despite our sound being so broad and diverse, we are a heavy Alternative-Rock band at heart.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Stone Sea's debut album 'Origins' was released in 2015. In 2017 our EP 'Vaporizer' came out, which showed us move away from the raw and sludgier sound of 'Origins' and adopt a groovier, more optimistic sound.

Our most recent EP 'Mankind Maze' was our most experimental and ambitious release to date, with 'Prelude' sporting a Bossa Nova inspired sound, and 'Dream Song', which is our longest and most lysergic song to date.

Of course, 'Mankind Maze' wasn't all experimentation. 'Mystify' kept the groovy feel of the previous EP,  while 'Seeing Red' sported a crushing riff and a heavier sound overall than the rest of 'Mankind Maze'.

If someone was to listen to any random Stone Sea song, the sound they would be met with could evoke a range of feelings, from happiness to sadness, rage to inertia.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We're currently working on a new album which we're hoping to release towards the end of this year. But don't worry, you won't have to wait that long for a new single or two.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We like to keep ourselves busy, this year we're hoping to make a name for ourselves not just outside Dublin, but outside Ireland too.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

WORLD DOMINATION. But all joking aside, we really want to grow as a band and share our music with more people. We'd love to play in new places with new bands to new people, and ultimately make a living from our music.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Everywhere! Our music is on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, everywhere you'd listen to music! You can buy our merch from our music glue site, but that's not as fun as going to the merch table at one of our gigs!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That they enjoyed it! Music is something you're supposed to be passionate about and enjoy, and we take pride in making music that people will enjoy and connect with.


Metalcore band BEHIND OUR REFLECTIONS formed back in 2014 and since then, have released a debut album "Discodance" with an all new single following titled "While I Sleep". Another new single is in the works, with local show performances happening as well. Guitarist/vocalist Fredo Moutoumodely does the talking here and discusses all of this and more!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Fredo: Behind our Reflections was created in 2014 with 6 band members. During the evolution of the band, we have had a lot of changes with the members. I was the only one who stayed until present. Now we’re a total of 4: Fabrice : Bass, Remy : Drum, Brice : Lead vocal and me as the guitarist and second vocal.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Fredo: It all started when I was in Paris with my friend Aimane from Chaos band, working on some tracks. Since I wanted to share what we have worked upon, I thought why not make a band. After a week of churning upon what could represent us well, I finally chose the name: "Behind Our Reflections".

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Fredo: We are from Reunion Island, which is in the Indian Ocean near Mauritius and Madagascar. Our local metal/rock scene is very active regardless we are in such a small island! You would be mind-blown with the motivated and energetic audience coming to see us and the other local bands! We often play with FEED THE IRE! So I would definitely recommend them as well as bands like Burning Dolls, Vacuum Road and Warfield.

4. How would you describe your style?

Fredo: Metalcore!

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Fredo: Our first album, “Discodance”, with the old band members, came out in 2017 and now we just released a new single “While I Sleep” – which is available everywhere! Go listen to it. ;)

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Fredo: Definitely! We are working on our second single, we are taking our time but it’s going to be dope!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Fredo: We are for the moment playing locally but we’ve been planning to go on tour onto close-by islands like Mauritius and who knows, if all goes well, to France maybe! Let’s cross all the bonds in our body for that to happen! Amen!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Fredo: Since we’re a close-knitted and motivated band, we will be coming up with new albums and go on tour in other countries, meeting new artists, discover new countries with their awesome metalheads. That would be a dream come true.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Fredo: Our music is available on Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Youtube... just look for Behind Our Reflections also, our merch are available on our bandcamp, check them out:
https://behindourreflections.bandcamp.com/merch.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Fredo: Feel the music! We have worked a lot  in producing immersive songs, with the samples, the melodies, and we hope listeners would feel all this feelings like we!

Metalcore band UNTIL I WAKE have a fresh vibe with a uniqueness to their sound that is truly their own creation. "Sinking Under", is their newest single, with more music to be released as they create, with a future looking full of touring as the time see's it fit. Find out just a little bit about from what they have to say about their music and more.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

All members of Until I Wake have worked with one another on music at some point or another in the past but none of it’s members have been available at the same time to work on a single project as a group until now. Finally the band had the opportunity to get the group of like minded and motivated individuals to all combine their efforts into one project together. Having such a solid core group who want nothing more than to create and play music we knew we had something huge in the works.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The bands name didn’t come to us easily. We went through plenty of names before we decided that Until I Wake was cool. Some of the band was indifferent about the name. But eventually the more we built this project and the more we started using the name, the more everyone started to love it more and more.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based out of Buffalo, New York. The music scene here is full of driven and passionate musicians looking for their big break. There are a lot of bands that hustle really hard and work their asses off and there are some bands that bring a toxic attitude to the scene and don’t support others. But we all know those bands don’t last.

4. How would you describe your style?

This band is basically a melting pot of styles. Each member brings a different style to the table, we each like so many different genres of music but we all have that common ground of enjoying Metal/Rock music and that's basically what brings us all together.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far all we have released is a debut music video called “Sinking Under”. We have much more ready and there's also still a lot in the works. But what can be expected next would be another music video within the next couple of months!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Plenty of new music is in the works.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have no shows or tours planned out yet. We have a lot that we are working on that will get us exactly where we need to be before scheduling any shows or tours.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

The future is full of touring and releasing the best music we can create.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to the band on Spotify as well as most other streaming platforms. You can buy our music on most distribution apps/websites! Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4XYFjTd83FIwArFrWEYhd5.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We would like all of our listeners to know that everything is written with a meaning and a purpose.


Metalcore progressive band THE UNSUNG have two EP releases out "Rise" and "Sin Cera", with even newer working's set for release come the spring time! In the mean time the band plays to play some shows with a tour coming later this year! The band goes into talks about much more below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The Unsung began in 2015 gaining a foothold in the local Southern California metal scene and releasing a debut EP titled, ‘Rise’. After a change of lineup, the two founding members, Devin Castro and Tyler Sinclair, were joined by Thomas Sumstine and Garrett Brown in mid 2018. The band has been releasing content including several music videos with a combined >100k views, acquiring endorsements, and sharing the stage with large acts such as The Word Alive, Miss May I, and We Came As Romans.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

During the conception of the band, we struggled to come up with a name for weeks.  We were so frustrated with our inability to come up with a name, that we approached giving ourselves a name that was about being nameless.  The Unsung means being uncelebrated.  Our names and our faces do not matter, hence our logo being a masked figure.  All we truly care about is our music and our message being heard.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The Unsung is based out of Southern California. The music scene is competitive, yet blooming with underground talent. Two very notable local bands we would authentically recommend are Aslyus and He Films The Clouds.

4. How would you describe your style?

We have strong Metalcore roots with subtle touches of progressive metal, mixing things up into one cohesive sound with the consistency of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and allusions to the great melodic leads of the 80’s. That sound combined with our ultra-high intensity live performances creates an experience that is sonically beautiful and highly engaging, staying with the audience long after the show has ended.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Our two major releases consist of our debut EP, ‘Rise’, as well as our second EP, ‘Sin Cera’. The former holds to the classic guitar shredding and heavy rhythms which defined Metalcore as a genre; the latter drawing from a much more eclectic sonic palette that conveys substantially more mature musicianship and an unhindered artistic passion that will melt your face off.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We not only have released a new single with a music video, but have more songs prepping for release this Spring.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We are planning a west coast tour later this year, and lining up shows with various bands and promoters throughout Southern California in the meantime.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

As a band, we are eager to actively tour both nationally and internationally.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available for streaming/purchase on all major streaming platforms in the link below!
https://linktr.ee/theunsungband.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Disregard any preconception about the image of the band; rather absorb the raw message and energy within the songs themselves.
