EMQ’s with SYLENT STORM

EMQ’s with SYLENT STORM

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Medford, Oregon based Traditional Heavy Metal band Sylent Storm. Huge thanks to them for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Jym Harris (Vocalist): Thanks for the interview! This is Jym Harris, I sing for the band and I played drums on our first EP. Other members will be chiming in as well. We formed in early 2013 in Medford, Oregon, but became inactive after a couple years of gigging around Southern Oregon. I reformed the band with a new line-up and started playing shows again in early 2019 after our EP was released.

How did you come up with your band name?

Jym: First, I like the “OR” sound in Lizzy BOR-den, Ozzy Os-BOURNE, WAR-LORD (there’s two in that one) so “Storm” came naturally. Adding “Sylent” gave it a juxtaposition like Quiet Riot or Led Zeppelin. A delicate word and a powerful word. Iron Maiden is a great example of that too. Besides, the idea of a silent storm seems ominous.

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

Jym: Medford, Oregon (USA) is not great for our style of music. It’s mostly Bro-Metal…Ya know, like Groove Metal, and Core type bands. Traditional Metal seems bigger in other places.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

Jym: We have a pro-shot video for “Patriots of Metal” on Youtube. Our self-titled demo EP came first in late 2018 on Stormspell Records and was released on cassette by Doomsday’s Today/Barf Bag Records in 2020. Our new album “The Fire Never Dies” will be out this year as well.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Jym: Musically? I have different influences for writing lyrics, writing music and singing. I always have trouble with this since I admire so many artists.

Michael Ian Brisbane (Guitar/Vocals): For me, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Zakk Wylde, David Gilmore, and Gary Hoey.

What first got you into music?

Jym: When I was a kid, my old man was a truck driver and spent a lot of time with the radio on. He played tapes all the time. At home, we had a big stereo system and stacks of cassettes, 8-tracks and 45s; mostly country and 60s Rock n Roll. I had older siblings that showed me newer stuff, but I think kids at school really introduced me to Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

Michael: I grew up with music my whole life. My mom was a jazz singer in the clubs in Dallas TX and then in the choir in churches. I got into it when I wanted to impress a girl, so I learned the guitar. Needless to say, I never got the girl, but fell in love with the guitar.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Jym: For Metal? There’s a million. Non-Metal? Lzzy from Halestorm or Kacey Musgraves. Behind the scenes, I always would have loved to work with Jonathan Daniels, Jack Ponti or Max Norman. I admire good songwriters and producers.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Jym: Keep It True would be incredible since it’s real Heavy Metal bands. Any big fest like Wacken, with lots of fans who truly enjoy our style.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

Jym: At a show last year, we got off stage and this gal comes up and takes her necklace off and put it on me.  The pendant was a cut off dinner fork that had been filed and bent into this other shape and turned into a little face. Weird and cool.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Jym: That we appreciate their support more than they know.  Fans of Heavy Metal are the greatest fans in the world.

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Jym: Steel Panther got in trouble for saying Vince Neil, huh? I mean, who do you pick, really? Randy Rhoads comes to mind…Dio…man, so many.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Jym: I just love writing songs. I also enjoy performing for an audience that really gets into the show and I hate waiting until the pandemic is over to do it again!

Michael: I love the creativity of putting different ideas together. Seeing what chords and melodies can go together and how it can make you feel. It’s like cooking with notes. I hate the fact that sometimes the options are so limitless, and it makes it so hard to make a final product.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Jym: “Deliver Us” by Warlord. Technically an EP, but it’s nearly perfect.

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Jym: Well, each are good for a different reason. I prefer CD’s but as a kid I loved vinyl and tapes.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Jym: The first time I opened for Y&T was pretty amazing. Not the biggest show I’ve ever played but the energy was incredible. Northwest Metalfest was a blast. Also, opening for Dokken the first time, many years ago.

Michael: In the sense of sheer numbers it would have to be our local July 4 celebration. 6000 people in an outdoor stage. It was awesome.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Michael: Probably either a chef, or involved with architecture or something. Anything to do with my hands. Also, I love bladesmithing. I used to do it when I was younger.

What’s next for the band?

Jym: New album later this year! Keep an eye out!

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Jym: All of the platforms we can find, but Bandcamp is the big one. YouTube is good for previewing, and watching videos.

Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Mike Pugh (Bass/Vocals): The Jaffa cake I would have to say is a pastry, sooo… biscuit.

Michael: Jaffa Cakes are actual cakes. Made from a sponge cake topped with jam and chocolate. My dad is from the UK and it’s a UK dish. Some may call it a biscuit but they’re wrong.

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Vernon Of Persia – Ascend EP

Vernon Of Persia – Ascend EP
Self-Released
Release Date 10/01/2020
Running Time: 24:06
Review by Tammy Lomax
9/10

So, I did actually ask Mr. Editor to throw some random albums at me and one of the ones he selected was Vernon Of Persia. Well what can I say, Mr Editor knows me very well indeed!

Vernon Of Persia are a five-piece Progressive Metalcore band from San Antonio, TX. They began their journey in 2016 when two brothers, Tyler & Kalen Thomas came together with the other three members joining later that year and “Ascend” is their second release!

They are so far up my street they are hammering at my front door! I am more than welcoming, come in and join me for a cuppa. I feel all light and fluffy after listening to “Ascend”. These guys definitely give me my fix.

There is no mucking around with long introductions when ‘Weightless’ opens proceedings, just a massive wallop to the face, from the start, setting a standard of supreme talent. The only minor niggle for me is when second track ‘Ascend’ plays. There is a prolonged gap between ‘Weightless’ finishing and that starting and it’s similar at the end. A very long fade out? ‘Ascend’ is a belter of a track though so be assured it’s not detrimental toward the talent seeping through from Vernon Of Persia.

Throughout the entire six track EP there are some blinding choruses and bridge sections, it’s almost like there is a fight taking place between good and evil. I do appreciate clean singing if it’s done well and fits in the right place. Vernon Of Persia pin that particular trait down, completely.

For example, ‘Sea Of Trees’ (my favourite track on the EP), has a powerful and seemingly dominating riff but the vocals meet and over-take entirely, claiming complete territory. “Climb to the top of the mountain, reach the sky” go the lyrics! Yes, I am singing along, disregarding the fact I might sound like a cat getting strangled.

It really sounds like they are using some serious equipment and they sure know how to use it to their advantage! There is a tremendous amount of technique and skill cemented together here. It shines through, crystal clear. I visually see them playing in the sky to the entire world. Fan-bloody-tastic!

I had to listen to final track ‘Marc Of The Okubo’ a few times to understand its flow. At first, I felt they were trying to cram too much in, and it seemed a bit misplaced and off beat, But no, that’s not the case at all, it’s a case of opening up your ears! Keep up Tam!! There’s a belter of a bassline leading the whole track and powerful double kick drums do not go unnoticed. You can’t miss them, they are fast.

Vernon Of Persia are continually growing and have already played with some huge bands like As I Lay Dying, Within The Ruins, Suicide Silence etc…and the more they experience, the more they will grow. They have released a REALLY good EP here. All the tracks are far more advanced than on their previous EP “Relativity Of” (which I also listened to) It’s full of flavour, you have super-hot, spicy and sweet …it tastes marvellous with the right amount of mixture, texture and technique, thus it does not spoil. 😉

Thank you for letting me review these guys Mr Editor and good luck to Vernon Of Persia!

EMQs with Asylus

Asylus Logo

EMQ’s with ASYLUS

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with California based Post-Hardcore band Asylus. Huge thanks to Davon Harper & Naz Munoz for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Davon: My name is Davon. I sing vocals, play keys, and push buttons on an Ableton Push.

Naz: I’m Naz one vocalist of Asylus. We were founded in Orange County in 2013 and we’ve been playing and trying to create dope music ever since.

How did you come up with your band name?

Davon: I remember Mel telling me when I first joined the band, and it’s been my motto ever since. Asylum essentially means a safe place for the mentally ill aka outcasts of the world. Asylus is a play on that word meaning a safe place in US.

Naz: Some of our members have said it means that we are the Asylum with our music. As for myself I’m not too sure what I want it to mean, but I know that Asylus has been my asylum at times. Eeeeeeeeeeee that’s some deep shit, foo haha

What country are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

Davon: We are from Anaheim CA in the USA. Metal is HUGE in SoCal some of the most well-known names in metal came from here. The scene has always been filled with tons of talent and lots of new support.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single or Video)

Davon: Our Latest release is a Single called ‘The Wave’ It’s on all platforms check it out.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Davon: The band has had a TON of influencers of all genres. Ranging from Linkin Park, Asking Alexandria, Veil Of Maya, all the way too Fever 333, Scarlxrd, Juicewrld and many others. Just a huge mix of different music for sure haha!

Naz: My biggest influences musically have been the bands Fellsilent, Tool, Deftones, and artists such as Earlsweatshirt, Immortal Technique, and soooo many more.

What first got you into music?

Davon: I started playing music when I was 4 years old and took piano lessons until I was 17. Can’t remember what the trigger was that first made me want to play music: I just knew I loved making noise.

Naz: The first time I picked up an instrument and continued to practice was when my nephew got his first guitar. I kind of just claimed it because he wouldn’t play it as much as I did. I eventually bought my own and got into to learning vocal techniques later.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Davon: Definitely Post Malone, Fever 333, or Poppy they’re dope.

Naz: It would have to be Deftones. That band will go down as one of the most amazing and unique bands in history. They’re sound unmatched. I would love to lay down some tracks.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Davon: Definitely Coachella. One of the biggest music festivals, it’s always had a good mix of different artist it would be awesome to rage with that many people.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

Davon: Trolli Gummy worms. Don’t know if that’s weird but Marco you the GOAT!

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Davon: Please talk to us. About anything really! We love exchanging stories and helping each other through this wild thing called life. Communication and being heard is a huge part to self-healing so yeah. You don’t have anyone to turn too, hit us up.

Naz: Y’all are dope AF for supporting us. I hope that our music continues to make you move and touches your soul.

If you could bring one Metal/Rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Davon: Chester Bennington. I think the band as a whole was shocked by his death. Definitely miss him for sure.

Naz: XXXTentacion. Dude was too young with too much potential. It’s a shame that he didn’t get to grow.

Davon: I agree with this.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Davon: Definitely the fact that music connects people on a different type of level. It honestly feels like a superpower sometimes. When you make something out of nothing and then on top of that have other people resonate with whatever feeling you were pushing out at the time like they were there with you when you wrote it is beyond words. The only thing I guess I personally hate is the lack of supporting different ideas/sounds. Art is subjective but regardless we should be building each other up and get inspired by competitors. Not bashing things that are different purely out of intimidation.

Naz: I enjoy writing and live performances, but I hate writers block. It’s the bane of my existence

Davon: I agree with this as well haha.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Davon: I feel like it’s in a great place right now. The art and platforms provided really leave a lot of control in the artist’s hands. The business stuff is never really fun but it’s needed for protection it feels like, so I wouldn’t necessarily change it: maybe just find a way to make the knowledge of the industry apparent so people don’t get taken advantage of so much.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Davon: The Fray – “How To Save A Life” I feel like that album has something for everybody. ‘Over My Head’ is still a BOP.

Naz: Tool – “Lateralus”

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Davon: I recently just heard/used a vinyl last Christmas, and I have to say my life is changed. What a way to experience music, seriously.

Naz: Downloads are so convenient.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Davon: We host a holiday show every year at Chain Reaction. Last December was absolutely insane. The turnout was insane, the support was crazy, having everyone vibe out to the new stuff we’ve been writing was just so much fun! That definitely is one I will never forget!

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Davon: Comedy. I love making people laugh, I’m definitely a clown. Not the best at making others laugh but I love trying too. That’s the only thing I’d say I’d do if I couldn’t be a musician.

Naz: I would be bored!

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

Davon: Easy! Chris, Naz, Mel, Erick and Adam! Adam runs the practice spot we rehearse at. He’s the best, and that would be a party.

Naz: My band and my Cat.

Davon: His cat is the cutest. I’d trade Adam for his cat haha.

What’s next for the band?

Davon: We played NAMM in January for the Legator Booth. I was so excited for that, I’ve never been. Then it’s back to writing, we have a few more songs planned to release, and possibly hit the road again.

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Davon: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, all the usual’s you can find us. We’re working on our TikTok game so that might be a thing real soon.

Jaffa Cakes! Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Davon: Not going like don’t know what that is but I’m going to go with biscuit. Names on foods usually never add up to what it truly is in the package so yeah biscuit for sure.

Naz: Absolutely no clue what that is. But it says cake in the name.

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Davon: Thank you for having us. It was fun. Follow us on all platforms, find us, and hit us up. We’d love to talk to any of you.

Naz: ASYLUS 2020 baybee we out here!! Woo!

EMQs with Second Wind

Second Wind Logo

EMQ’s with SECOND WIND

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Chicago based Melodic Hardcore band Second Wind. Huge thanks to drummer Brad, Vocalist Dane, and Bass player Jordan for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Brad: Hi! I’m Brad and I play drums in Second Wind.

This band started out as my own private idea around March 2018. Loving melodic hardcore but also knowing I’d need additional band members to get this new band off the ground, I plunged ahead and started reaching out to friends. I’m grateful to say that just a few short years later, our first EP is almost finished, and man, are we ready to release it!

After his return from Colorado, my good friend Dane and I met up so I could share the music and discuss his interest with him. To my excitement, he loved the songs right away, and we’ve been working on the band as a group ever since. Jordan recently joined us on bass, and he’s been an excellent addition to the band!

Jordan: I’m Jordan, I play bass. I joined the band not too long ago but I’m proud to be a part of this great group of guys. 2020 is going to be a great year!

Dane: Brad nailed the history, but I’m Dane and I am the vocalist. Brad, like he said, came to me shortly after I moved back to the Chicago area from Denver. The music got me from the start and joining up originally as the guitarist, but then switching to vocals has been a crazy experience for me. A great one though, and one I’m happy to be a part of, but a whole new world from previous bands.

How did you come up with your band name?

Brad: I love answering this question! Having been a musician since age 16 and knowing I wanted to play music the rest of my life, I have long since recognized the need to continually push forward. I learned that there are moments in life where no one but you will be encouraging you to take that next step. In the midst of a season of massive life change for me, I realized I needed to buckle down like never before and get it done – especially in launching a new band. So, I thought for a few nights and realized my “second wind” had come; hence the name.

Jordan: The name was already established before I joined, but I think it’s a great fit for the band and our goals. The name also represents the hard work and dedication that Brad put into getting the band off the ground.

What country are you from and what is the Rock/Metal scene like there?

Brad: We are all from the United States. The US has an amazing metal scene. People here are very passionate about metal and regularly attend shows; often selling them out.

I have seen so much good come out of the metal community. There are so many people, myself included, who have found a community and common experience in the metal scene. People have done benefit shows, fundraisers, and co-ops all as part of the metal and hardcore scene. It’s a vibrant group of people who love the same kind of music and want to see lives and worlds changed in the midst of heavy riffs and nasty beats.

I have also made lifelong friends and had experiences of a lifetime with bands I’ve played in, and bands we’ve had the pleasure of playing with. In large part, everyone is so supportive, and people want to see you do well. I love it!

Jordan: We are from the US and there are so many different “metal scenes” that are unique in their own way. I’m most familiar with the Chicago scene and I love it. Everyone is so friendly and open minded. We have some great bands in the area that are picking up momentum so keep an eye out!

What is your latest release (Album, EP, Single, Video)?

Brad: Our latest release is “Apathy”, the second single from our upcoming EP, “Indispensable”. If you love bands like Counterparts; Gideon; Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!; and Wage War, you’ll love this track. We’ve already had worldwide radio play on this track; something we’re super grateful for. A number of radio hosts have given us 5/5 ratings through RDX Promo, our radio partner. Give it a spin today!

Jordan: Apathy is the latest single and an absolute banger if you ask me. It’s catchy but unique and has a positive, uplifting lyrical message that I think many people can relate to.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Brad: I love all kinds of bands, from metalcore, to death metal, to hardcore, and even ambient artists like Eluvium. My top five of all time are August Burns Red; Killswitch Engage; Unearth; Hammock; and Cloudkicker. Ben Sharp is super impressive with the stuff he puts out; his mind is inventive. I grew up on bands like P.O.D.; Project 86; and Rage Against the Machine. These bands helped set the foundation for what I love today.

Jordan: Lately, I’ve been influenced a lot by Phinehas, Of Mice & Men, Polaris, and Gideon. I do, however, appreciate and try to learn from many other genres.

What first got you into music?

Brad: So many different things! I think I first fell in love with music listening to P.O.D.’s album “Satellite”. That changed the game for me, at the time. I instantly connected with the music and knew there was something unique and powerful out there, unlike anything else I had ever heard. They put so much passion and purpose into their music, I couldn’t help but look deeper. Sure enough, just a few months later I was discovering other bands, and the rest is history, as they say. Music is my biggest passion in life.

Jordan: My parents met in the college marching band, so music has always been a big part of my life. I grew up on classic rock like Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Guns n Roses, etc. In middle school, I discovered Avenged Sevenfold. I played in a school band, but I started experimenting with drums and guitar in my own time and became drawn to distorted guitars and fast drums.

 

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Brad: I would love to write a song with Unearth or Ben Sharp of Cloudkicker. They produce some of my favourite riffs of all time. They also know how to write a well-packaged song, and that’s what’s kept me a fan of theirs for this long. They are good at taking conventional ideas and turning them upside down.

Jordan: If I had to pick one… I’d say Gideon. They just seem to write songs a little differently than everyone else and I’d love to pick their brains.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Brad: I would love to play Wacken Open Air. That one is legendary!

Jordan: Hellfest! I just remember watching videos of it in my college classes and wishing I could be there to experience it. Playing it… would be insane.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

Brad: I don’t know about weirdest… Fortunately, nothing has weirded or creeped me out haha. Though I have gotten some great high-fives and hugs in my day, and that is the absolute best! I always return the favour.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Brad: Thank you for supporting us; tell us what your favourite song of ours is, and why you like it so much!

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Brad: Either Chuck Schuldiner from Death, or Nick Menza from Megadeth. Schuldiner because he wrote so much advanced material for their time, or Menza because he was a great drummer on some iconic Megadeth albums.

Jordan: Jimmy “the Rev” Sullivan.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Brad: The opportunity to bring an idea together with like-minded friends and have the time of your life. Music is such a gift to the world. Also, as Jordan says, the only downside to being a musician is if it’s not your full-time job yet. Though we are working on that becoming a reality.

Jordan: Being able to express myself freely. Also feeling a song come together as a payoff for hard work. The only thing I don’t like about being a musician is having to work a job that pays for my gear and stuff. It takes away from the time I could spend practicing or writing.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Brad: I would want musicians to see that they don’t have to flounder from a business perspective. There are dozens of tools out there, that when properly used, actually move your music career forward. We have built a Facebook page of nearly 1,000 real fans and almost 50 email subscribers in just a few months because we’re using proven strategies.

Jordan: I wish some people were more accepting and open minded to new bands. There are so many newer bands that don’t get the credit they deserve.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Brad: “Phantom Anthem” by August Burns Red.

Jordan: “City of Evil” by Avenged Sevenfold.

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Brad: They all have value! Whatever floats your boat. That being said, CD’s to me still have the most value, because you can easily listen in your car if desired, on a home stereo, you can pop that bad boy in your laptop for digitization, and still have the CD artwork and lyrics to admire. It’s the whole package!

Jordan: Cassettes have sentimental value to me because I had a truck in high school that only had a cassette player. My mom gave me a box of cassettes that she had from college, so I was always jamming Appetite for Destruction and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Brad: My old band The Aperture Schematic got to open for Insomnium at The Forge in Joliet, IL. That was a moment I’ll never forget. Since Second Wind just got launched in July 2019, we are still ramping up for our first show, but we hope to hit the stage around late spring or early summer.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Brad: That’s a hard question…. I can’t imagine music not in my life! If I weren’t a musician though, I’d be writing and publishing books – which is what I already do in my spare time. Writing is my second biggest passion in life.

Jordan: I’m an aircraft mechanic so I would probably just be working a lot of overtime. I’d probably also be fixing and collecting motorcycles.

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

Brad: John L. Mason, Tim Lambesis, Rand Paul, Matt Greiner, and Bruce Dickinson. Just like Jordan, this is a very strange combination, but they are all good thinkers, and I’d love to meet them (or re-meet them) and hear what they have to say about various topics in life. I’m sure there’d be memorable discussions!

Jordan: Glenn Fricker, Jared Dines, Jared Keeso, Eliza Taylor, and Kevin Windham. Weird combination but I’d love the chance to meet all of them.

What’s next for the band?

Brad: Like Jordan said, our EP release is the next big checkbox. We need to get a good launch for that, and then hopefully shortly thereafter (or coinciding), we’ll have our first few shows.

Jordan: The EP is coming very soon! Then it’ll be time to hit the stage.

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Brad: We are active on all the major social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. In addition to those, we work on our Bandcamp and Spotify presence.

We also have our email list here, which you can sign up for to get exclusive goodies and sneak peeks before anyone else does (seriously; you don’t want to miss out!).

Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Brad: I’ll be honest; I had to look up what a jaffa cake is! Haha. Never heard of one before. To me, they look like a biscuit, but it looks like it’d taste more like cake. Whatever it is, it looks yummy!

Jordan: Not entirely sure. They look good though. Can I say none of the above?!

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Brad: We really appreciate you interviewing us! Be sure to rock “Apathy” if you loved this interview.

Jordan: Thank you for having us!
