Post grunge band DESPITE THE FALLEN have a debut EP out titled "Isolated" with a few singles out as well. The plans otherwise is to keep growing and exposing themselves delivering the best music as they possibly can do. Discover what more was said about their creativity and music below.


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

We are based out of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Known for its eclectic music scene, the layout tends to be more populated by indie/alternative bands, however its rock scene is nothing to overlook. From Hometown Titans such as Cage the Elephant, Close neighbors Black Stone Cherry, and then several amazing local bands as well, It is clear that Bowling Green is some sort of musical mecca.

2. How would you describe your style?

Our style can be a little elusive at times, especially with the growth we’ve experienced on our new stuff. But usually we are served up as Post Grunge along the likes of Breaking Benjamin and 10 Years.

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

So far we have released our debut E.P. “Isolated” featuring 6 songs, as well as having released 3 singles recently. "Sign of Life", "Divide", and then we did a Cover for a Cause and released a stripped down version of “Drown” originally by Bring Me The Horizon and we are donating all proceeds from that to Battle22, a non-profit organization dedicated to combating Veteran Suicide and raise awareness for PTSD.

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

Constantly. Regardless of our show load, we always have new music being crafted behind the scenes. We are very meticulous and somewhat perfectionists however, so we have been known to take our time in releasing such music, simply because we respect our fans immensely and only wish to deliver them the best possible version of ourselves. We all think that is very important especially in our short term shelf-life throwaway culture that the world has kind of shifted to lately, We want to release stuff that we feel has the best chance of standing the test of time and sticking around.

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

We are sticking to a regional basis currently as we finish up the studio time for our next release, but will definitely be taking it out on the road as soon as its finished.

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

Honestly, just to keep growing and delivering the best possible music that we can. That has been our goal from the start, as we believe touring and all of those goals all fall second nature to the true intention of being an artist which is just to release good art. Connecting with our fans, be it through streaming, CD's, radio, YouTube or even live shows, that’s all that matters to us.

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

Our catalog is available on every digital outlet one might expect, Apple Music, Google Play, CDBaby, YouTube, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, ETC. As for show announcements, Just follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected, and feel free to give us a shout and introduce yourself as well. We try to respond to every message we receive.

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

That is a good question, I believe a lot of our music has somewhat of a therapeutic nature, even if only from us exercising healing through creation for ourselves, that being said I guess I would want all of our listener’s to know they are not alone. No matter what they are going through, all of life’s messes, that they can connected again if even only for 3 minutes. That’s actually a big theme of “Isolated” in which at the root of all of Life’s hardships is this overwhelming feeling of being alone. We know how powerful that can be, and hope we can offer some sort of refuge from that.



Coming from the underground is SUBTERRANEA whose time thus far, has had them release an album and EP as well. But the band as a whole is a one person project, done by a women at that, rather well. Aside from this she has also had a variety of other content released so far too. There is much more to be talked of from the chatter below.


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

Subterranea is a one-woman band. I do occasionally perform with other musicians and improvisers on stage, but when it comes to writing, composing, producing and mixing/mastering the projects - it’s essentially all me.

My name is Alia, I am a trained operatic singer, a multi-instrumentalist (keys, cello, drums, jaw harp)  and audio engineer. I started being involved in music since i was 6, so really, it’s almost a second language to me. My father was into electronic music, so this probably shaped me in some way, since the first thing I am hearing in any song regardless of genre, is a bassline.  I got into rock and metal much later in life but ever since, it was a fantastic journey of me discovering a huge part of what almost every teenage boy was into in high school (Megadeth, Metallica, other mainstream metal bands) and venturing forth into stranger and nicher sub-genres and bands like progressive metal, doom metal, black metal, black atmospheric. All this I somehow missed out on in high school due to general social anxiety and a-sociality, but now I get to be greedy about what I like and absorb and process what I find interesting all at the same time if I like.

I started writing music at around 12, but it was mostly classically-inspired piano music. I got into audio engineering and digital music composition in 2013 and have been involved in multiple projects before I released first Subterranea album in 2017. Ever since, it has been a journey - me evolving as a producer, composer, performer, and musician.

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

Subterranea is closely tied to chthonic imagery. In Ancient Greek pantheon, almost every divine deity had it’s “dark side” that was incredibly terrifying to the worshippers, yet equally necessary and having its place in the grand scope of life. If a deity puts on its “chthonic” mask it means someone somewhere crossed the line, allowing this to happen.

I guess, for me - Subterranea is a justified and necessary manifestation of aggression, darkness and raw emotion that is both horrific in it’s rawness and dignified in it’s unapologetic honesty. That’s the primary explanation behind the name.

There’s also a secondary, complementary reason for a name. There’s a UK-based progressive rock band called IQ, they have a song called Subterranea. I was mystified not as much by the song name as by lyrics: 

Can I hold on, can I believe in
All the things you are?
There's no sane in, chaos reigns in Subterranea

and then again, later in the song:

Can I hold on? I cannot count them
All the things you are
Were I stronger I'd hold out longer in Subterranea

I think the lyrics just spoke back to Subterranea being a chthonic entity that is chaotic and constantly expanding in every direction simultaneously. But also, the IQ’s song largely speaks to my creativity the way i see it - if my creativity could grow legs and could become an animal, it would be a monstrous octopus. I always have seventeen things on the go, with 15 more on the backburner. Plus, Subterranea, as a project, keeps challenging me creatively, as if testing my endurance - how much stronger, more knowledgeable and inspired should I become to hold longer in the mental space of this project? I don’t know. Subterranea is an apologetic raw and emotional journey that demands creative honesty.

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

My band is based in Toronto, Canada. Music scene is dying here, at least in my opinion. With gentrification and condo projects, a lot of small venues that made playing shows possible, are disappearing. There is also a shortage of artistic support, programs or grants for art development. I prefer not to play in my home city. But I get it, it’s not much easier anywhere in the world.

4. How would you describe your style?

A bastard child of symphonic, avant-garde, neoclassical and progressive doom (Storm Corrosion, Opeth). Some call what I make dungeon synth because of the evident epic metal and black metal influences. If I can be 100% honest though, my music can probably best characterized as dark, dissonant, symphonic and heavy. But individual songs range between progressive metal to symphonic metal to folk metal.

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

My actual history of releases is about 5-6 albums if we count all projects I have been involved in. For Subterranea, it’s one album (Kingdoms Fall) and one EP (Myrkri) with occasional sprinkled individual compositions, and one dark ambient album. I would say Kingdoms Fall was very folk/dungeon synth, Myrkri was bordering on progressive folk metal.  My next release - St. Agony will be much much heavier, because some of the influences that laid the foundation sound for it are Meshuggah, Mastodon, Katatonia, Dan Swano, and Bathory. The release itself doesn’t faithfully sound like any of the influences, but I was heavily perusing on the emotional frequencies of the artists’ mentioned above.

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

Yes, St, Agony. It is a very emotional release for me, I guess it’s an attempt to exorcize myself of some unprocessed traumatic incidents in my life. So it is heavy, it is dark, and I am really pushing the limits of my ability to express emotion in that one. 

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

I have a possible tour in South America + Mexico planned possibly for summer, but things are still up in the air. It’s a joint tour with Attrition (UK). Other than that, I am playing a Vancouver-based festival (Covenant) in Toronto on April 10, and possibly Metalocalyptick in Vancouver in the summer. I am planning to get into more European festivals for summer/fall as well.

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

I will give you the most unsatisfying answer ever - I don’t know. I want to enjoy the journey of making music that is true to what I feel, and this is all I am trying to focus on at the moment. Everyone dreams of a rock'n'roll lifestyle, but without extremely hard work and lucky circumstances, it’s not a feasible projection for any band’ future. I want to make my career as a producer about becoming better, more honest, more skilled and more adaptive to change. I want to speak music as a language first, and whatever comes out of it - would be interesting to see and analyze.

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

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

Darkness and sadness is a healing aid, not your enemy.


Alternative metal band 7 MAZES has been around for a short while, but have released a handful of content, ranging from 2 albums, 1 single, music videos and even lyric videos! Perhaps some new content is the works, there is no telling from the so called 7 Mazes Camp! Plan for now is something way bigger intended for the summer and rest of this year! Find out more from the band and their say in the discussion at hand about the music that they make.


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

Well, the story of the band begins shortly after the sudden end of Max's father's life. Max Roxton: "This stroke of fate made me think about giving up music, for a short time in my life. But fortunately I didn't do so in the end. Instead, I wrote some songs to deal with my grief. These songs represent the beginning of the band and you can hear them on the first record. The first album, I recorded with our former drummer "Daniel". Shortly afterwards I met "Bo", who at that time, after a break of many years, had just started playing bass again and joined the band shortly after. "Davy" joined the band via a Facebook ad. With this first line-up we released our debut album in May 2017.

In January 2018 the first US tour followed and shortly after that the recordings for the second album. After the recordings for Album II (Revelations) “Daniel" left the band. In January 2019 he was replaced by "Val Pine", who has been our drummer since then. In June 2019 Davy" left the band and was replaced shortly afterwards by "Stef Rockfall", who completed the current line-up with his entry. I met "Stef" in 2016 at a festival and asked him already then, if he was interested in a new band. At that time, however, he was temporarily prevented by his studies. So after "Davy" left the Band, my first idea was to ask "Stef" if he wants to join in. All the more reason for me to have him on board today. The current line-up of the band consists of "Max Roxton"; (vocals/rhythm guitar), "Bo Jahson" (bass), "Val Pine" (drums) and "Stef Rockfall" (lead guitar/support vocals).

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

Max Roxton: „The number 7 is mentioned in many historical texts, cultures, beliefs, etc. declared over and over again as a lucky number. Just as it was for my father. Furthermore, this number has
something magical for me. The combination with the word „Mazes" as another word for „labyrinth“, denotes several different aspects. On the one hand it stands for a kind of „emotional labyrinth" in which I found myself after the sudden death of my father. On the other hand, it also  refers to the social labyrinth in which we all live our lives. Forever in search of individual fulfillment, we all run through the mazes of our society. The original idea was that the 7 should be a good luck charm and a signpost. In a way, the name means that we represent a light in the darkness and want to open people's eyes. This is also one of the reasons why our songs work very strongly with a dark and melancholic mood, but still have a positive effect.“

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 startet in Burghausen/Bavaria/Germany, but we all come from different places. Max is the only one grown up in this area. Bo comes from Duisburg/Germany. Stef and Val come from smaller
villages near Passau/Germany. The music scene is good so far and there are a bunch of good Bands
to recommend. An outstanding example are our good friends from "The Sonic Brewery", who we have with us as support on some of our shows this year.

4. How would you describe your style?

To put it in a certain genre, Alternative Rock would actually cover everything. We move in several styles and combine everything to a rock mix strongly inspired by the post-grunge of the early 2000's with metal and conceptual film music influences. We like to work in self contained album concepts regarding sound, degree of hardness of the music, mood etc. Consequently, our style could also be called conceptual alternative rock.

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

So far we have released 2 albums, 1 single, 2 official videos and several lyric videos. The first album (Stronger in the End) is very much about the loss of a loved one and how to deal with such an
experience, or rather what you can make of it. The sound is very rocky and reminds of a mixture of "Mark Tremonti, Alter Bridge, Foo Fighters and Linkin-Park".  The second album (Revelations), as well as the single (My Shadows) are mainly about fear, doubt and insecurity and how to face these
mostly unpopular and suppressed feelings in order to get them under control in the end. From the second album on, our sound became way harder and got much more metal and prog influence. Comparable would be, for example the current "Tremonti" or "Alter Bridge" sound with elements of "Linkin Park". New listeners can expect fresh, catchy rock with metal influences, great hooks and recurring familiar elements of the last 20 years of rock and metal.

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

Some say we do, some say we don’t. We say: "That is a well kept secret in the 7 Mazes Camp."

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

We are constantly planning and playing shows this year. But to be honest, we are planning on something bigger for this summer.

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

Well, that would go beyond the scope of this interview, but be sure we are constantly working to push our career as a band.

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

Everywhere. Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, Google Play, Apple etc. To buy our stuff, just shoot us a message on Facebook and we will send you everything you want, as long as available. But we are working on our online-shop. So, in the near future you will be able to order anything on our official homepage.

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

Well, actually everything about our sound. Whether it's the unique voice of our singer, the untypical bass runs of our bassist, the driving beats of our drummer, the rhythmic, oppressive guitar parts or the
catchy solos. In our opinion, the mixture of all these elements gives our sound its depth. And exactly this musical depth in connection with the lyrics of our songs should remain in the memory of our listeners.  But to describe a feeling that we would like to evoke in our listeners: We want to show people who don't feel understood that there are people out there who understand them. We want to convey that everyone out there should believe in their dreams. No matter how crazy they seem. We want to comfort people in their darkest hours and be a light in the dark for them. Because at the end of the day we play for the outsiders out there, to whom we ourselves have always belonged.


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?

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!

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.


Modernized rockers FIGHTING GIANTS have their self-titled album out and about, with all new material in the works currently, with an expected release in 2021! But besides from that, the band will be playing a handful of shows over the next several months, with much more else in the works too! Find out what else the band had to say about themselves below.


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

Comprising of 5 friends In the local Tallahassee Scene, Richard, David, Jeff, Bofa, and John have been in multiple bands together throughout the years. notably: 86 the Earth, Inside The Nine, and Breaking the Machine. Coming together in early 2019 with the sole purpose to have as much fun as possible while still able to perform.

2.Whats the origin of the band name?

Originally we had set to go with the name "Thea Collision" we were almost sold on it except that we had several opinions of the pronunciation of the word "Thea" lol, so one day a friend in another local band referenced a term "Throwing Giants" as a name option, and that quickly evolved to Fighting Giants.

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

We're based out of Tallahassee Fl. and the scene here is a very tight close knit family of bands. our album features guest vocals on track 2 by our good friend and former band member of 86 the earth and IT9, Curt Rogers who fronts Tallahassee's "Defy the Tyrant". They just signed with Pavement Records this past week. other notable acts here in town are metal acts: Carrion Curse, This Dying Breed, Despite the Irony, and country acts like Tobacco rd. Band. our members also have other projects they're involved with locally. David also sings for "Rising Up Angry" out of Orlando Area, John drums for "Carrion Curse" and Richard is involved with two other projects: an acoustic two Piece with a local country singer "SoloCupp" and an "Un-named" project" with a local film-maker (Ash Von Chamier) that will feature many yet unrevealed Musicians and vocalists from the eastern states.

4. How would you describe your style?

We're a mix of hard rock and metal. we just love to play music that makes us move and makes folks in the crowd move, we strive to be high energy and positive with our overall tone and performance.

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

So far we have released an 8 song album recorded with Brett Hestla at BHP, avail. at www.cdbaby.com/cd/fightinggiants1. We have shot a music  video with Ash Von Chamier for our songs: "On the Surface" and "Unravel[Tape-9]" this is a 20 min. music video short film sort of "Visual EP" that sparked the side project with Richard and Ash (another local musician ads well) which will be an EP written  for a visual experience: https://youtu.be/zpRbVBn354A.

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

Yes, currently we are working on our next round of songs to record and track at BHP for a release in 2021.

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

We're currently set to play a hand full of shows around the Florida panhandle over the next several months. with some really big ones yet announced later this year. while there have been a few tour offers, we are not planning to tour at this time.

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

Currently we're just pushing the envelope with our live performance and having fun along the way. We cant give away much more than that!

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

We can be found on all streaming platforms and see the CDBaby link above for digital purchase. online merch store in the works, until then email Fightinggiantsband@gmail.com for swag orders!

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

 We hope you enjoy and thank you for listening. Our goal is to captivate and entertain.


Alternative rockers MONACH do have a full-length album out called "Duner", featurng content that has a bit of everything pretty much. The band has newer music in the works as well as plans to head out doing some shows this spring time! Even so the band goes into discussion about the music and plans on playing shows between now into the late summer!


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

It’s been quite a shift since the inception of the band. We started out in 2018 with a completely different lineup than we do now; Andrew is the only original member remaining. The band started as a passion project between a few friends jamming in a basement apartment and grew pretty quickly. Eventually people moved in different directions and there was a big shift in the band. We met Nick at a show, Wryan while recording our debut album “Duner”, and Noah came in recently which means he doesn’t show up in pictures yet.

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

So we used to go by the name Hot Knives; it was a fun name that people got into pretty quick. But we noticed that we weren’t the only clever people who decided to run with that name. We knew eventually we would have to switch due to legality issues. We spent a month or two coming up with names and landed on Monach. One of us found the word 'Monachopsis' - The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place. We thought it suited well with the ideas and music we were writing. We’ve had mixed reviews on the new name, mostly a lot of confusion on how to pronounce it, but after it’s settled in for a bit we’ve definitely grown more fond of it.

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

We’re based out of Kingston, ON. The scene here is truly hectic in a good way. It’s a college/university town so demographic wise it’s perfect and there’s tons of places to play. Listen Up Kid is a local favorite, and we’re planning a run with them in the spring. Voyager is rad, Sian Alcorn is doing some great stuff. Our good friend Spencer sings in a band called Counter Culture and they’re really fun to watch.

4. How would you describe your style?

It’s kind of a mix of pop punk, and more ambient/melodic emo stuff. We’ve all got some pretty wide tastes in music, so there’s a lot to pull from. Our first full length has a lot of dancey pop punk songs, our new stuff is more melodic and layered. It’s nice being able to cover lots of ground and still have it be us.

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

So far we have a full length out, it’s called Duner, it’s on everything, it’s out there, it’s probably even on Tinder at this point. It covers a good amount of ground sonically, there’s some pop punk dance anthem type stuff on there and there’s some more dynamic tracks. It’s something we really recommend you sit down and listen to in full, we’re really proud of it front to back.

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

We do! There’s a couple new songs we’ve been demoing out, that we’re not 100% where or what they’ll end up on, whether that be an EP or LP2. We’re also planning on doing an Acoustic EP with some of the songs off the full length!

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

We’re currently in the middle of booking an Ontario run in April, and then we’ll be back out in August as well! We’ve got some stuff sprinkled between there too.

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

With our new lineup finally cemented the plan is to write & play out as much as we can. Like we said before we have a lot of influence to pull from & everyone’s prior band history is all over genre wise. We all write a lot on our own and so there’s always new stuff coming through. We’re really stoked to do these runs in April & August so that we can connect with bands in other cities and more importantly build a fanbase and connect with the people at those shows. We’re all really big on genuine social connection and we hope we can build that bridge for our listeners.

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

We’re on all the major streaming platforms, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. You can also buy Duner on Bandcamp, and we’re currently building our website to have things in one collective spot.

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

Transparency, honesty, really. We try really hard to be as honest as we can lyrically, and to write songs that hopefully affect people in a comforting way, or make them think.


Rock n' rollers SIX TO FIX, have an all new single made video release titled "When the Night is Over", with more single's and an album coming soon enough.... For now though, the band has taken the time to talk about their music and what they have planned next!


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

Six to Fix started in 2011, we were six members, with 2 guitarists, bass, drums, voice and a keyboards player. We released a demo and sent it to some  contests, so we managed to open for Mika in a sold out show, and we supported other Spanish famous bands, all before the release of our first record.

We started playing gigs, and after some years, the two guitar players left the band. So, Sergio (keyboard player) started playing guitar and we ended up being a quartet in 2017. After that we were signed by a promotion agency and we managed to get our songs and videos in some Spanish TV shows.

In 2019 we tried to get a great producer for our next recording, so we recorded 'When the night is over' with Julian Emery (producer of Nothing but thieves, a band we love) and it was mixed by Adam Noble (he worked with other bands we love, as Placebo, U2 or Biffy Clyro).

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

In the beginning, we were six members in the band. The name started as a joke for the six of us. Through the years we ended up being four members, but the name of the band remained. We could have changed it for 'Four to Fix' (haha), but we remained as Six to Fix.

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

We come from Valencia (Spain). There’s a lot of great bands here, and many different styles, but if you want to reach a huge audience you’ve got to sing in Spanish. There’s a band called Elyella, they sing in English and Spanish and we like mostly their English songs. Other bands that we like: Ayoho, L.A., Havalina, Vuelacruz, Polock, Standstill, Neuman, Toundra.... and many more. But if you sing in English, you'd better try out of Spain.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style is a mixture of styles... mainly indie rock with electronic sounds. You can find guitars and melodies influenced by the 90's or 00's, but at the same time you find rhythms or vocals with a modern sound, and some keyboards too.

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

We have released 2 albums, 2 EP's and some single's. If you listen to our music through the years, you can see our sound has evolved. At the beginning it was more classic pop rock and the influences were clear, but now we've found our own style, you can find a lot of different influences and a more contemporary sound.

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

We have released 2 singles for the next album 'Imagination', the last one 'When the night is over' just some weeks ago. We are recording the rest of the songs now, it will be out there soon.

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

We'll start touring Spain at the end of February and there are some dates scheduled for the next months. After that we'll try to make it in other countries.

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

We'd like to reach a great audience all over the world in order to play gigs anywhere, we're working in promotion and we'll see how far we can get.

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

You can find Six to Fix on every streaming service (Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube, Deezer, Bandcamp, Soundcloud). You can buy songs in some of them, and you can go to www.sixtofix.com to buy merchandising or CD's. You can find stuff on the shows too.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?
We'd like him/her to say 'I want more!'. We try to make different things in every song, some of them will make you dance, some of them will make you think or calm down, but there's an optimistic shine in all of them.


Pop punks MISPLACED have released a handful of single's with an acoustic single coming soon, with even more singles underway! The band got together to disclose the matters about their music, creativity and plans for the future.


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

We are Misplaced, a pop punk band based out of Glasgow, Scotland. We formed in early 2019 when a couple of the members from previous bands decided to take the music in a new direction and take it a lot more seriously.

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

We can’t really remember where the name came from exactly but I’m pretty sure we were all looking through songs we liked and the citizen song "Your Head Got Misplaced" came 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?

We are based out of Glasgow with a couple of guys living in the surrounding areas, the scene for Pop Punk/Alternative emo in the UK as a whole is Great these days, however in Scotland is very underrated, there’s too many to name but a couple we’d recommend would be "Spoke too Soon" and "Dude Trips".

4. How would you describe your style?

Sadboy Pop Punk.

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

We’ve released 3 Singles so far from mid 2019, we try to write songs that combine high energy catchy choruses with sad undertones thematically.

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

We’re releasing a new acoustic single on the 14th of February and will be recording another few singles in March.

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

We have a small weekender tour planned from the 21st of February in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness, as well as supporting the pop punk band Woes on their final ever show on the 29th of February.

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

We plan to continue on writing high energy pop punk at the moment but we also enjoy experimenting with Vibeyer guitar tones which you can find on our latest single "I’ve been up way too late". A few of us are influenced by artists such as fats’e and Nothing, Nowhere who are very good at blending a pop punk sound with other elements and is something we could be doing in future.

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

All our music can all be found on all the big streaming platforms out there (Spotify, Soundcloud etc) with a couple of music videos on YouTube.

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

We’re all extremely handsome and single <3 p="">
