Back in 2010, when I was getting into the cavalcade of weird bands in the scene, I looked for the weirdest of the weird. I stumbled across The Bunny The Bear, and followed with pensive interest for several years, as the band’s obtuse approach to metal couldn’t be bogged down by any one genre. I got the chance to speak with frontman Matthew Tybor about this project in detail:
Over the next several weeks, we’re going to be discussing a handful of bands across our home state of Florida that we think you should know about. They will be across the spectrum in terms of style and genre. First we’ll be talking to vocalist Elliot from the heavy noise-rock trio Vacancy from St Pete.
2020 is finally here! Now we can all focus on the incredible releases lined up for this year, and those not yet announced. Krosis is one of them! The North Carolina death metal outfit is preparing to release their newest album A Memoir of Free Will on February 7th, 2020 via the legendary Unique Leader Records! Krosis will be hitting the road in February with A Wake In Providence and God Of Nothing. You’ll definitely be hearing our take on the record soon to fully indulge yourselves into our thoughts on the next chapter of Krosis. We will say this album is packing nuclear energy. We had the honor to sit down with Daniel Cece, the man behind the kit, to discuss the upcoming record and chat about music.
The last couple years have seen a lot of change for Las Vegas’ sonically eclectic Amarionette. After undergoing a significant sound change, parting ways with their original vocalist, and recently seeing the departure of their longtime drummer, the band has continued to persevere with the release of their new “Evolution” EP, out on Friday, August 23. I spoke in-depth with guitarist Nick Raya about the band’s creative process, some of the new songs, and where they hope to go next.
