Many styles can be combind to make up the style of rock and rollers Amue, who have strongly strengthened their relationship as band getting their life experiences and musical talents and exposure out in the open in the Los Angeles area. A mixture of rock, indie and ambient styling's go along the lines of powerful and subtle vocal skills with light gentle shouting tatics in between bring out that heavy raw bouncing energy Amue is known to create.

Music is life to these rockers and they believe that their musical expression is the best key feature and talented one to match which in the end shows a reflection of hope and respect having them explore their surroundings together as a band would touring around the local areas including some of the most popular spots in the Los Angeles atmosphere. House Of Blues, Key Xlub, The Slide Bar, Chain Reaction these stops have all been apart of Amue's start and future and their most recent stops have been at the very popular and very famous Hot Topic chain shops dishing out all the latest trends in clothing,music and just everything relating to the sounds and sights in the world and way of music. After forming in the Winter of 2007 having many creative and collective ideas store inside their minds Amue broke out their debut EP "Like A Kiwi," a brief glimpse into the mind and world of the Amue act surely to set things right everywhere they looked. Tonight was no expection because currently Amue is on the road hitting all the local Hot Topics performing a mini acoustic set for anyone willing to listen in on, and tonight brought in a mixture of folks both young to old. The fans surrounding the store cheered and shouted after each tune was played through the band interactiong with the crowd getting the tone and atmosphere just right for everyone to enjoy. The music alone was very uplifting and kept an on-going beat and tone you can easily bang your head too and rock your body with, Amue sang several tunes that have been floating around the net which included "Devils In My Pocket," Streets R Calling," "Sinful Needs," among many others, Amue is an instant rock and roll success which should draw in more and more fans alike getting their music exposed even further and further away until it reaches the many ear drums all over the world.

The second annual Musink Tattoo and Arts Festival took place this passed weekend spitting out 3 full non-stop jammed pack days of absolute fun and excitement everywhere you looked. I was lucky enough to attend the second day festivities and the main rooms was swarming with booth after booth after booth of tattoo artists far and wide some experts and some very talented ones.

All crafting out their creativity as best as possible. While as other booths set up contain band merch that you would likely run across at your local rock shop while others sold the festival merchandise and the outdoor atmosphere was just as peachy. Having the same set up except a little more food surroundings than the main area did. Having popcorn stands with cotton candy flying around soda and beer all around.

The Musink Festival was highly underway but the second main addition to this festival was the performances which was done by several musical talents such as Far who rocked out the stage getting the crowd hyped up with total excitement for the acts that were about to come. Scott Russo of Unwritten Law continued to entertain the crowd of high energy folk jumping up and down and singing a long to the musical tunes blasting out of the sound system through their heavy entertaining set ups. Once those two acts left the stage the main bands wrapped it all up having St. Louis very own Story of the Year break the stage jumping and shouting until their lungs were sore and bleeding from the inside out.

These heavy rockers rocked out a 30 minute set bouncing out the new and old tunes such as "Wake Up," Falling Down," In The Shadows," and "Until the Day I Die," which got the crowd dancing and moving instantly not wanting to drop the beat. That was the end of their high racing performance for next we would witness the heart pounding act of Atreyu busting out an hour long set including a cover tune of Bon Jovi at the end of the night. But that's not all their poured out onto the stage and floor grounds, they broke the crowd up into an non-stop running circle pit of destruction having their fans being tossed around everywhere in sight to such tunes as "Creature, Bleeding Mascara, Right Side of the Bed, Ex's and Ohs, wrapping it up with Lip Gloss and Black." Overall the second annual festival was full of fun and highly entertaining for all who witness the experience and exposure of the music being played.

Cradle of Filth are an extreme metal band from Suffolk, England, formed in 1991. They have been embraced and disowned with equal fervour by various metal communities, and their particular subgenre has provoked a great deal of discussion. Having released already 8 studio albums from the start of their musical career Cradle of Filth have made themselves highly known all around the world touring non-stop getting noticed as much as possible while also enjoying the ride along with it. I had a phone interview with the guitarist Paul Allender of the band and he was happy to do the interview with me and we discussed about the band their newest album and what future holds for them within the upcoming months....

1. Happy new Year and how's the New Year treating you?

Paul: It's been very well, and it's been good, its all gone very well indeed just touring, very well the response for the new album has been going very well and just been amazing and great overall.

2. How's the response been so far for "Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder,"?

Paul: It's been great, we all feel that the new album I think it is an album that is going in the right direction the concept to the end we wanted to top it off and we did, it well.

3. What was it like working with the vocalist of H.I.M.?

Paul: I didn't have a chance to meet him myself, but yeah he's put some cool stuff down on the album. Not really the type of music I'm into myself.

4. Did it bring back memories of your previous tour back in 2006 when you had The 69 Eyes with you? Since The 69 Eyes and H.I.M. are so much alike. Any possibility of having those two acts join you on a tour?

Paul: It did a little bit, I'm not really into H.I.M. at all, but yeah The 69 Eyes are good friends of ours and that tour went really well and yes the music is very similar. No probably we are all doing much harder stuff now.

5. Are you excited about Friday the 13th arriving?

Paul: How was it? It was great, we played. It went extremely well good night for us.

6. How does it feel to be playing at the Henry Fonda just like you did in 2006?

Paul: It was good, we look forward to going back to venues we've already played and then be able to play there again.again,and again and again. It was pretty cool, so it comes down to booking us there but the Henry Fonda is great.

7. What was your first concert you attended as a fan?

Paul: I was 12 years old and it was a band called Spider they were like an English band, I bought their single and then got to see the band live and then ever seen the band live and was completely, completely blown away it was amazing.

8. Was there ever a certain song or album that inspired you to want to go out and perform music?

Paul: Yes there was and it was a very good album indeed and the songs mean a lot to me and the reason I started playing guitar it was amazing very,very cool indeed.

9. What CD is playing in your version of hell and heaven?
Paul: In what version of hell and heaven? I really love the band Heaven and Hell and the covers they've done of Black Sabbath and I absolutely just love that album.

10. Have any favorite websites? Or does MySpace drive you insane as it is.

Paul: No I don't use MySpace at all I have a Facebook, the Cradle Of Filth website it looks great and I check out this website called Inked, and I think it's pretty cool.

11. How do you compare yourself's now to when you first started out having gone through line-up changes etc.

Paul: We figured out the industry is really like and had a great time while doing it, we've worked with the people and become friends with them and everything been a lot of fun.

12. What does the future hold for Cradle Of Filth?

Paul: Lots, and lots and lots, we're going to go record a new album, I've gotten some cool ideas already, and then go tour and go to Austria for two weeks and then at the end of the year come back to the states. It should be great once we get back to the states. We like playing the states and Mexico a lot its great.

13. Thanks for doing the interview sorry I couldn't make it out there tonight is there anything else you'd like to say?

Paul: Thank you, if there are any other questions or any other interviews you'd like just hit me up an email and I'll be happy to help you. Thanks a lot for doing it for us.

Papa Roach has been a well known hard rock sensation since their debut in 1993 being very successful down the line with such hits as "Last Resort," off their 2000 hit "Infest," then later on "Deadcell," resurrected being a big hit thanks to the film Queen of the Damned.

Papa Roach later went on to unleash three more records all of which broke the sound barrier as we know it. Having "Getting Away with Murder," (2004) with "Scars," among other top notches then came forth "The Paramour Sessions," with "....To Be Loved," and "Forever," but that was the passed and indeed did all those spine chilling hit singles make Papa Roach known and their name spread far and wide; its now time for the arrival and present time span of "Metamorphosis."

Consisting of 12-tracks of pure hard rock energy this fifth installment in the Papa Roach series is indeed a must have bringing out the classic Papa Roach vibrations with such tunes as "March Out of the Darkness," "Night of Love," and current singles flooding about "Hollywood Whore," and "Lifeline," which keep a more recent style kicking bringing out a similarity of "The Paramour Sessions," days well as the other two mention shows a more edgy earlier depth of the Papa Roach career development.

A special guest appearance as all albums tend to have includes a guitar riffer from Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars making his creative skills known on "Into The Light," a more mellower track but still contains that fast pulsing energy we know and love of the hard rocking Papa Roach.

"Metamorphosis," is overall an entertaining hard rock album and all the instruments are well layered out displaying their talented skills when needed which keeps the hard rock sensation of this hard rock act to continue to rock from now until the end of time.

Greg (Vocals), Mike (Vocals/Guitar), along with Jonny (Drums), and Josh (Bass) bring together an unleashing force field unlike any other field known to mankind. The Los Angeles music scene has been given great hype about all the creations it’s thrown out over the years and in this day and time this act is no acceptation, the grind breaking metal riffing rocking roaring styling’s of Daybreak Ends tears up the latest trendy music scene with their second installment of creations addition to their collection of CD’s entitled “The Self Unseen,” which carries out the hard raw metal edge driven aggression your ears just can’t wait to listen in on. A chit chat session was conducted with Greg front man of the band who gave his thoughts on their newest addition.

1. In your own words what does Daybreak Ends do differently than other bands? What elements set you apart most? What are you most proud of with the new record?

Greg: Daybreak Ends is a band that does not sit around and wait for good things to happen to us. We work hard and do everything ourselves. We have self-booked 5 tours including a four month national tour and we have self-financed and released two CD's. We have been through member changes and hardships but we push on because we know that the music we make means a lot to us and without it, we would be lost. A lot of bands just sit around and wait for somebody to come along and sign them or put them on some tour and most of the time that never happens. There are always exceptions but most of the time if you want something good to happen, you need to do things and earn it for yourself. This is true in life also. I feel that our new CD captures a lot of the raw energy that our live show does. I feel it is more angry and heartfelt than the last one and I feel the songs represent where our band is at the moment more than the last CD did when we released it.

2. What themes are predominating over the entirety of "The Self Unseen"? There seems to be a touch of self-revelatory, the political, etc.

Greg: The entire theme of "The Self Unseen" touches on the element of something being inside of a person that they don't even know about but there is something that a person does that makes that part of them come out. A lot of people don't realize what they have inside of them until something comes along and forces that out of a person. It could be the loss of a person that makes a person realize they can live without them or it could be some type of event that would kill someone but a person was able to harness something they never thought they had inside themselves and prevail.

3. As a band how has Daybreak Ends grown between "Perfect Tragedy," and "The Self Unseen"?

Greg: The band has grown immensely. We are at a point in our lives where the band seems like a well oiled machine. Everyone contributes and nobody drags us down. We have members that love the music and love creating it and we all get along so well. Perfect Tragedy was a collection of songs from the frist 3 years of the band so it incorporated songs from other members different times in our bands life. The Self Unseen is a collection of songs from where the band is now and it has an overall feel that is more complete to us from start to finish.

4. Taking into consideration current economical times, have you noticed an increase or decline in the number of kids making it out to live shows?

Greg: There will always be a place for live music in the world so even if the economy is rough, kids come out and support and have a good time. In comparison to a lot of activities, going to shows is not that expensive. You pay for the ticket and have a great time and see bands and it’s usually a 5 hour show or longer so you get your money’s worth. Considering our shows are like 5 to 10 dollars, it’s a pretty good deal to be entertained for a whole evening. The economy may be tough but as long as kids throw backyard shows and basement shows and stuff then money is no problem.

5. Many bands experience levels of success they can't reproduce stateside, and vice versa. How Daybreak Ends is received over-seas and how do you think BAND is perceived in America?

Greg: A lot of the fans we have in Europe are very dedicated to our music. They are really supportive and we wish we could go over and play for them because they have shown us so much love. I feel that Europe has a great music scene at the moment and they seem a lot hungrier for music in general. I love how they are less jaded and just love to rock out and have a good time. The perception of Daybreak Ends in the US is good in certain regions. We have a great fan base in Denver and in Pennsylvania and in San Antonio, TX. We always have amazing times when we go through there and the fans there are awesome. As far as the scene in Los Angeles, it is pretty bad. There are no local nights like their used to be and a lot of promoters are so corrupt with pay to play that it kills the scene and makes it hard for bands.

6. Have critics tagged you with any stigmas you would like to get rid of, perhaps by clumping you in genres you don't belong?

Greg: Not really. We just play rock music and have a good time so if people wanna call us something then that’s cool. Hopefully someone will read what they write and want to check us out.

7. "Perfect Tragedy," is completely different compared to the new record. What was the influence writing "All Gemini Die Young"? Furthermore, what was the specific placing of it on the record as opposed to the middle or end (Where many bands tend to put songs they consider to be "against their own grain.")

Greg: Daybreak Ends has always been against sticking to a certain genre and we have always fit into an aggressive music genre. We felt that with putting All Gemini Die Young as the first track to the new CD, it will show fans that the new CD is more raw and angry. Also, it fits the theme of the CD because in the beginning of it, I am singing about the darkness that is living inside and it sort of sets the stage for “The Self Unseen.” The new CD is more aggressive and raw and that is a great song to show people that. We have had a great response from it and are happy that people like what we are doing.

10. "A Love Like Arson," is (in my opinion) the most complete song on the record. Can you talk about the creation of "A Love Like Arson," as a song- where it started, etc. It taps into many different metal genres - with its unmistakable power metal elements (and who is hitting those higher notes?)

Greg: “A Love Like Arson,” is definitely a different song for us. I sing it differently than our other songs and we used to use it as the first song in our set for our last tour. It is very energetic and I love how it does incorporate a lot of elements from our influences but also still keep that dark sound that is Daybreak Ends. Mike came up with the initial riffs as he always does and we kind of put it all together. I sing all of the harmonies on the CD.

Let the violent ways of Violent Divine destroy you from the inside out because their musical ways is just the tip of what they hold inside of them and it sure isn't pretty but just down right wrong from every angle possible.

1. Do you feel like your past plays a part in motivating your efforts?

Yeah definitely! It's the eternal question once stated by Dee Snider: What do you wanna do with your life. Do you want to stick with your shitty but safe job or do you want to keep doing what you love most in this world. Music has always been a persistent part since I bought my first Sweet-album, so I found out that it's useless to resist. This is what and who I am. Maybe it's all part of some working class obsession about getting away from it all, I don't know. Anyway, whatever reasons buried in the past, they sure keep me highly motivated.

2. Do you feel your music and your efforts coincide with one another?

Yeah I do. If I'd been a content and happy character I might have been in a happy top40 band getting stinking rich and über-famous. But I'm not unfortunately. Violent Divine is a band full of raw energy and I think that is very much present on the new album and I know there is an audience out there who can testify about that energy on-stage as well.

3. Is there a message you carry within your music that you want to express to your listeners?

I get that question from time to time and the funny thing is that I never thought of it in that way. Violent Divine is a band driven by it's ambition to play good rock music and to, more or less, satisfy our own taste in music. We don't have a certain political message but if our way of "doing it" contains a message it might be something like "stand up for yourself" "stand out from the crowd" and "don't let anyone tell you things can't be done". Sounds a bit like a Kiss or Twisted Sister anthem, don't it. :)

4. What is Violent Divine doing differently on the new album "In Harm’s Way," to warrant the attention of some of the younger kids who are just getting into heavy music now? Do you feel you're a logical progression for kids to get into the way most people get into metal and hard through the more popular bands?

Hey maybe this is our mission as a band, keeping kids away from the top 40 rubbish. I think that if someone is seriously interested in music, that person will go explore the depths of that certain genre of choice. Violent Divine might not be at the deeper end of the spectrum since I believe the band appeal to a wider audience, but if possible we're happy to lead kids onto the right path :) In Harm's Way is of course harder, darker and much more personal than the debut album. I think the strength of In Harm's Way lies in its honest form of communication between the band and the rock fan. In a way that is a logical progression because as your taste in music mature, you will crave more substance from your favorite music and hopefully start to reject the meaningless superficial noise that's pushed on people by the majors.

5. Violent Divine helped push the band to a higher level through "In Harm's Way." Being that extreme music is catching a lot of attention right now, do you worry that this record might just maintain your current fans as opposed to gaining a number of new ones?

I never had that worry actually and as far as I've seen the current fans are still there while we gain new fans day by day. And besides I don't think the music of Violent Divine is that extreme. Violent Divine is more of an expression of the musical climate of our times, that the borders of different genres are dissolving and that there really are no strict rules anymore. I mean for a rock fan like myself it is very much ok these days to both like Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and Slayer, while at the same time love The Cure, Depeche Mode and Manic Street Preachers, and I can allow all of these great bands influence my own music. In that way I think rock and roll hasn't been so vital since Elvis.

6. Being where you're at in your career, where you're able to draw a large crowd, do you ever come across shows where you feel like you're playing for a group of people who are just staring at you, acting almost like they have no idea who you are? If they still happen, how do you handle boring live shows?

Well crowds are different and that's just part of the game. They differ both in age and I'd say in nationality but that's just two sides of the coin really. I mean I do enjoy performing in front of a small crowd just as I enjoy the bigger ones. It's like a choice between pepsi or coke. You must also remember that Violent Divine is first of all doing this for our own pleasure and with that in mind, we always enjoy ourselves on stage and we're just trying to invite people to join in on the fun meaning I never yet experienced a boring live show. It's all about your own passion and attitude about it.

7. As the years have gone on, it seems like there are bands few and far between who are satisfied with their labels. What is your take on labels in general, these days?

I think you must see how labels have changed in the last ten years or so. Very few bands get signed and out of those who do, very few will get that big budget. Most bands that succeed do a lot of things themselves since you really can't rely on the label to do it for you, and I think that's an interesting development since it also reduces the power that labels formerly had on music. Today it's much more up to the individual artist or band if you're gonna make it and the Internet is the main tool that we can all use. You still have to go on tour of course since playing live is what rock bands do. As a band I think it's important to be aware of the label's changing role so you don't get too high expectations. And besides it seems like print CDs are giving way for digital downloads and if that becomes any bigger it will be more a question about cheap distribution than high printing costs for CDs - and that might just be the true revolution in the biz.

8. How did such an odd name come to be?

Naming your band must be one of the most anxiety-filld things that you do as a band. I mean you have to live with your decision for the rest of the band's existance and even longer than that if you make records. In our case, while aimlessly googling for ideas, Gus found a blog by a British prostitute called Violet Divine. Unfortunately another band already nicked that so after a small brainstorm Gus came up with Violent Divine. I think it's a great name because it allows you to play with words, it's a sort of polar expression and it's very much open for personal interpretations.

9. Your lyrics are obviously quite interesting. How do you feel when that seems to be lost with some listeners whom only seem to hear the aggressive side of the music being played?

I don't think I care a lot about those things. I write lyrics mostly for my own mental health and people who mind about lyrics will anyway interpretate them from their own points of view, life experience and so on. In that way it's certainly impossible to get any message through that is 100% accurate. Besides, rock lyrics like any lyrics are supposed to be open for individual interpretation. That's the beauty of the game really. So it's also perfectly fine if a rock fan prefers to just focus on the melody or the guitars or any other part of the band... Gus' sexy ass for instance :) You're all most welcome to the Divine - any way you want it.

10. What do you think is the most harmful thing happening to the underground music scene right now, and what do you think could curb that?

Maybe the fact that it's still hard for a band to get gigs and that a band might think that it's enough to be on MySpace or Facebook. Bands need to meet their audience in flesh, blood and beer to prove they're form real - and you can't possibly prove shit on the Internet. I'd like to take the opportunity to praise all those rock fans that come together arranging club-nights and gigs for their favorite bands in their home towns. You mean so much to us bands and we couldn't thank you enough. Keep up the good work and devotion.

11. How has the current tour been going? Any hightlights?

Well we've just started off actually and will be touring throughout most of the year so there's a lot to look forward to. Trash Fest 2 in Helsinki/Finland in mid March will be a blast as always. We also look forward to do the major biker party in our home town. We haven't done a show here for two years so that will be a massive party.

12. What does the immediate future hold for Violent Divine?

Well as the album just have been released there are lots of interviews and PR-activities before we go on tour, but it's also part of the game. We're also rehearsing the show to get everything armed and ready.

13. What is the one thing that you would still like to accomplish with Violent Divine that you haven't yet done?

Lots! Reaching out to more rock fans. I'm convinced that they'll like the album as soon as they get a chance to hear it, just as they'll love the band as soon as they see a show. The world is a huge arena and our Divine aim is to fill it.

14. Is there any song that sticks out as one where you knew "In Harm's Way," was going to be the album that it became?

Personally I think it's the general tone of melancholy that is present in every song on the album. Some say it's that way up north in Sweden since it's so cold and dark. But it's really hard to pick out any songs since I think all 12 of them together makes up In Harm's Way.

15. Thanks for the time and such a great record.

Thank You! Happy you like it!

SexMess is a talented hard rock and roll sensation that is tearing up the music scene everywhere they roam. Their catchy lyrics and upbeat guitar riffing solos with hard pacing drum beats keeps the music uplifting and entertaining every tune played. SexMess is a major addition to the music scene capturing the similarities of Motley Crue, Velvet Revolver, down to Avenged Sevenfold. These rock and rollers will not be forgotten not by a long shot!

1. In your own words, what does SexMess do differently than other bands? What elements set you apart most?

We’re just fun man! We put passion in our music which a lotta bands don’t do any more, it’s so clinical. We know how to have a good time, but we’re fuckin A on our instruments as well. There’s this gap begging to be filled by exciting, GOOD music and it’s this big, juicy SexMess which is gonna squeeze on in!

2. Any works on an E.P. or album anytime soon?

Yeah we’re working on it! But it won’t happen soon, these things take time… They didn’t rush Leonardo D’Angelo when he was painting that roof or whatever.

3. Out of your list of influences on your Myspace page, which band inspires you the most, and what do they mean to you?

Guns n Roses! Rob put it best – he’d be a nice, sober guy if it wasn’t for them. J wouldn’t have picked up the guitar if it wasn’t for Slash. There are others though; Motley Crue made Jess pick up a guitar (although Guns made him be good at it). J loves Hendrix as well and Danny’s a huge Cult fan.

4. Taking into consideration current economical times, have you noticed an increase or decline in the number of kids making it out to live shows?

We only played one show and it was packed! Anyway our shows are so good people should be selling kidneys and lungs to come!

5. Many bands experience levels of success they can’t reproduce stateside, and vice versa. How is SexMess received overseas and how do you think SexMess is perceived in America?

We’re gonna be huge… Bigger than Obama, oh yeah! We dunno how we’re received yet, we’ve only been going a few months… but if you look at Google Trends for “Sex Mess”, it says we’re big in Romania!

6. Have critics tagged you with any stigmas you would like to get rid of, perhaps by clumping you in genres you don’t belong?

Nah not really, we haven’t had any sort of criticisms yet. Someone did once say we made mediocre music but we were just like “Yeah mediocre SIGNED music, bitch! After one gig! What have you done?!” But yeah nothing like that yet, no.

7. What’s the concept behind the new music shoot you plan to shoot?
No concept, just rock! It’s one of those classic videos with live shots, studio shots & backstage stuff, like the first Guns videos, like Paradise City… (we thought of it first though!) There are some proper good arty shots as well with lights and smoke… its awesome!

8. When do you think we will be seeing SexMess out on tour and coming over to the US?

We just got signed so hopefully won’t be too long! Watch this space… or our MySpace.

9. How did the band name come about; what does it mean?

It’s not just about spunk! It’s cleverer than that! It was originally the name for this powdery concoction (a secret Chinese recipe) Jess would knock back all night that made everything like a nice, strange dream. Then the name just seemed to stick – like spunk – cos of how it reflects the life of sex, binging and chaos, as well as our sound and look – raw and punk, but still pretty hot.

10. Have any other thoughts or comments you’d like to make before we wrap things up?


Inevitable End began their journey in 2003 and broke the metal music scene completely away and their installment entitled ?The Severed Inception,? has taken off and will soon amaze and make your mind go crazy with lyrical themes unlike any you?ve heard before with guitar roaring riffs that blast you completely off the walls. Inevitable End?s has made their music creation known and doesn?t plan on fading away anytime soon so here?s a heads up on their musical talents put to out-standing work. A brief interview was conducted with the band who gave their opinions on their latest creation of doom!

1. Introduce yourself; tell me what you do in Inevitable End, and how long the band has been together.

Hello there. The current setting is Joakim-drums, Andreas-vocals,
Marcus-guitar and Emil-bass and we?ve been around since 2003.

2. You guys are from Sweden, what is the music scene like there?

The music scene is very good here in Sweden and we got a lot of great bands in all different genres. The metal/hardcore scenes are growing very fast!

3. Is there any story or concept behind your CD title "The Severed Inception"?

Guess there are different paths to walk in life, which eventually ends up in a set or chosen goal. This album is more or less about choosing with an honest heart which path to walk, even when thousands of voices try to steal our attention and force the masses into a certain pattern or way of living. It's about going against the flow.

4. Any plans for touring the U.S. anytime soon?

Yes we got plans and are very thrilled to tour the U.S, but nothing confirmed yet.

5. How's the New Year treating you?

It?s treating us good. Our album will be released march 17 on Relapse
Records and we have some tours coming up. 2009 are gonna be a great year!

6. "The Severed Inception," is (in my opinion) the catchiest and has great meaning behind it. Can you talk about the creation of "The Severed Inception," as a song- where it started, etc.

Actually it started that we just tried to do the most brutal and fastest song we could do. And I think we did it quite good. :P

7. Where did you get ideas and inspirations for some of the lyrics on "The Severed Inception"?

It's found in living life itself and in seeing how the society is on a downfall as the organized system through politics, religions etc. steal the freedom of mankind.

8. What are your future plans for Inevitable End?

We have some tours in the near future and are very excited for the release gig here in Gothenburg with great bands playing such as: By night,
No Hawaii and As You Drown. And we gonna start write new material soon, harder, faster and crazier!

9. What do you think of this year's presidential election? Do you agree with what Obama's saying "Time for change?" Do you think there will be any change done?

I agree with what Bob Dylan said 1963: "The times they are changing but it?s hard to say, but I hope there will be better times now. Barack seems to be a good guy!

10. Would you ever want to do an all acoustic show, like most bands turn to from time to time? Maybe try to stir up an acoustic mosh pit?

Probably not.

11. What would you compare your music too, out of the variety of bands out there.

It?s so many good bands out there so it?s hard to create something new.
We want to mix the most brutal deathmetal with some of the craziest shit.
We like all kind of different bands and hopefully we will make our own sound.

12. What bands have you toured with? Are there any that you would definitely want to tour with?

We haven?t tour that much yet, but we did a couple of shows here in
Sweden with Avatar and Sonic Syndicate before they got so hyped. It would be cool to tour with bands like: Origin and spawn of possession I think

13. Are you hyped for the Superbowl?

No actually not. Superbowl in Sweden is like a poop in the water

14. When you look back on when Inevitable End first started out, what do you think of you guys now?

Most of the original guys aren?t in the band anymore, and I think we got much better along the way. And the guys in the band are very good guys

15. Any final words of wisdom, thoughts or comments?
