Finally, some buzz about the metal scene.
Gahhhhh I’ve been waiting. The valley has been kinda metal-starved.
But the famine may be coming to an end.
Walking Corpse Syndrome has a show [click here for deets] at The Bandit in C. Falls on the 28th, Stupid Human Suit has come out of hibernation (aka music-making mode) and will be there with some new stuff too. And to top it all off, I’ve caught word of two new metal bands that have surfaced….. Into The Breach and Loin Hammer.
So I decided to crash a practice and see what’s what.
I showed up at Into The Breach‘s spot, not knowing what to expect. Like your typical jam space, the quartet assembled into a garage packed with equipment, a wood stove, beer, and pizza.
Not a bad set-up if you ask me.
Of course I snapped a few pics and video clips to bring back to you guys.
But first, the particulars.
Who is Into the Breach?
The four piece hardcore melodic metal group consists of:
Roman Hopper – Vocals
Ritchie Baier- Guitar
Paul Houseal- Guitar
Robert Cox- Drums
NLNW: What’s new?
ITB: “We got a vocalist, have five completed songs now, and are getting ready to play shows soon”
NLNW: It’s crazy to see how a wide variety of influences come together to make up a band’s sound. Who influences each of you?
Rob: As Blood Runs Black, Job For A Cowboy, As I Lay Dying, Parkway Drive, Metallica
Paul: Everytime I Die, Deftones, Megadeath, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Finch
Ritchie: After The Burial, The Acacia Strain, Born Of Osiris, The Faceless, Veil Of Maya, Northlane, Volumes, Dream Theatre, Texas In July
Roman: Chimaira, Black Dahlia Murder, As Blood Runs Black
NLNW: Sounds like a hodge-podge of awesome sauce. So what are your next three “to do’s”?
- Playing Shows
NLNW: Describe your band space for us.
ITB: “Cold, cramped, dark, METALLL”
Do you think you guys have a good idea of who these cats are? Well, don’t just take my word for it, take a listen.
[Editors note: I recorded this with a nokia cell phone.... I think it didnt do too bad of a job, sorry I couldn't pick up the vocals any better for you guys. Blame it on the AT&T sales guy... You'll just have to come to a show and experience it yourself.]
Keep spreading that Local Love, my friends!
