My Revengence Gets the Vengeance They Deserve

 Metal hardcore act My Revengence, is a 5-piece who's dealt with various band changes through the years, played some shows on and off, and are finally down to recording some material and continuing with their current line-up, while there has been some mishaps along the way these guys are determined to get the word out about themselves for all to hear. They all in fact got together to discuss their tireless little journey and just how far along they have come.

 1. What type of band are you?

Dewey says a bad ass one! Eric add's hardcore metal while Bo and Ray say it's a touch of progressive revenge-core! Matt says it's a little of everything but mostly hardcore metal.

2. Tell us a brief history of the band.

Matt says The band was started with three people, Raymond Surratt, and Matthew Eanes and also Trent Manning. They practiced in the basement of a church. We played two shows and the drummer was fired. Raymond left the band to finish school. Then John Coulson, Garrett Ingle, Mike Patterson, all three lasted only two months, then there was Matthew left.

  Then after eight months of cycling out members, John Mattingly played drums for three shows then left for the army. Finally we found someone me, then found Ray Milton, John Meeks, Eric Hale, and Dewey Milton, these members to this day remain true blue. Except for Ray Milton who had to quit due to job issues then Raymond Surrat came back after finishing school.

The current members have played shows for almost a year. We have done small recordings and started a Facebook page and we're ready to create studio recordings from now on.

3. Why did you want your band to be a five piece act?

Two guitarists, bassist, drummer, vocalist, and synth, sounded like a great mix to us. But it's been hard finding a dedicated synth player.

4. Where did the bands name "My Revengence" come from and mean for the band?

It came from an idea of taking vengeance twice, and it means to Ray Eric "Taking vengeance for yourself from issues of the past.

Matt says For me its like I've been in many bands and so far all of them but this one have failed, because
undedicated members, and a lot of people keep telling me I will never make it as a musician, I wont make it, I'm not good enough, and every show I play, the closer I get, to making it big, is another way of telling all of them Fuck You!

Bo " Dewey " says I don't know much about vengeance but it means family to me.

5. Who are your musical and non musical influences?

Non-musical, Eric says Luna Hale *daughter* desiring to escape Virginia and I am a fan of Bo, pussy, pot, and boobs make me smile.

Ray says My dad, brother, and I'm a fan of Bo's Dewey, my uncle Ray, family, dogs, and I'm a fan of Bo.

Matt says My son Corbin Eanes, my wife Amber Eanes, The Crow's Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee, oh and I'm a fan of Bo.

Musical influences would be Swift, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Whitechapel, Gwar, Suicide Silence, Killswitch Engage, Pig Destroyer, ICP. Pantera, Rings of Saturn, As I lay Dying, Born of Osiris, Animals As Leaders, Anisokay, and Dream Theater.

6. What are your songs about, what themes do they cover?

Sadistic realities of life, a little humor, and some dark tragedy with some very iconic epic heroic themes.

7. Do you write your own songs?

Bo says "We all just start with music and try to come up with an idea for a theme. Then we try to fit the vocals to fit the tone for a song, whether it'd be dark or melodic."

8: When can we expect to see an EP or full length release from you guys?

Hopefully this summer, we are in the studio currently, so keep up with us on our social media pages for a release date.

9. Are you guys unsigned or signed to a label?

Well no we're not actually signed but we should be damnit! We have our own booking group though who helps us and other bands in the area out which does make a difference and helps a lot.

10. What are our dreams and goals?

To make it BIG! Get out of this bullshit town, proving to people how wrong they were about us then kill them all for it with the love of our music and show creativity.

11. How do you promote your band in shows?

We have a booking group that helps other bands and us, we also mix in the fans, social media, friends and family with a lot of word of the mouth. Nowadays venues do not advertise shit for bands it's all for the band to do, to get the word out!

12. Describe your shows, visually, and musically for us.

Dewey says "Matt won't let us have visuals". We have a ton of fucking energy mixed with juagerbombs, synchronized bouncing, the more you see us the more crazier we get and our fans get too. Everyone in the band tries to be as professional as we can without loosing the fun in it!

13: What are the future plans for you guys?

To continue to rock this shit like never before, get some bad ass records made and hopefully a label will sign us! We'll then do some tours across the U.S. and outside of the U.S. For everyone to stay a family, Bo wouldn't have to take it off, she would find a way to take it off!

14. Anything else you would like to say.

We are fans of Bo! Do not understand what that means, just go to a show, listen to us, find out we are still kicking ass and are number 1! In our area of Martinsville Vawe and from around the world we would really like the fans to help with promoting as much as possible. We're also getting merch ready for purchase so keep your fucking eyes and ears peeled! Don't forget to check us out on our Facebook page
