SIN MG THE GRINDER INTERVIEW

1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it? Sin MG – Our name was originally Sin the Moon God back in the early 2000’s. We shortened it to Sin MG when we got the project back together after a several year hiatus. Sin the Moog God was an ancient Sumerian god and a play off of my last name, Sinclair.

What is your name and what do you do for the band? Scott Sinclair I am the lead singer, rhythm guitar player and co-writer of our music.


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound. 

We are based out of the Southside of Chicago, where people are very real and passionate. You always no where you stand. Our music definitely takes on these characteristics. The sounds is driving, groove oriented and passionate. Our Lyrics are all meaningful and usually inspired by current events.


3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people? This artist doesn’t influence our sound, but as a musician there are aspects Bon Jovi’s formula that have unconsciously seeped into ours. We also have some hip hop influences on top of some of the usual suspects.
  



4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by? We are endorsed by Nacimiento Tequila. We would love to be endorsed by Shure, ESP, Ernie Ball, DW, Fractal, Line 6 and Remo.


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now? To make a good living in the music industry. We have a lot of work to do, but a path forward is clearer now. During our career the industry has completely changed. It has taken a while to redirect our efforts and come to grips with many long-standing norms that don’t exist any longer.


 
6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time? One of our creative ideas is to reach more people by doing more Facebook live (YouTube & Instagram) concert events at our rehearsal space. We have a multi-camera setup with studio quality sounds piping through to our live platforms. The benefit is that we can play for more people in a shorter, more frequent format, while being efficient with our time and generating tons of content.


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live? Lose ALL respect!


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know? We are an Alternative Metal type of band. Heavy grooving guitars, over-played drums, meaningful lyrics and mostly clean vocals.


9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular? We are on the talented end of the spectrum, although we aren’t stacked with virtuosos. Our live performance is well rehearsed. We believe in delivering a great show, both visually and audibly.

Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent? I want people to get something from the experience of listening to our music and watching our live shows. I want to give them chills! That doesn’t take musician talent to pull that off. It’s more about the song and the performance. Again, while we are talented, we are focused on our audience and not showing off with some ridiculous solo that 90% of the audience doesn’t understand. We are songwriters first.


  
10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? We make many attempts to teach our audience how to interact with our show. Audience participation is an ongoing goal as we try to elevate our career. We also deploy vertical smoke visuals, 808’s and backing tracks that are perfectly sync’d with our set. We script our show and try to keep things moving. We try very hard to make tuning and guitar changes silent and seamless.




11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new? We have released two albums, Deception & Fear. We are working on our third album now. The material has all been written (demo’s available). We are now looking for a good studio to capture it the right way.


12. If you have videos where can we see them? YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/sinmg13
Here’s our newest music video – Light: https://youtu.be/lD1T5PFuY2E 



13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free? It’s good to be everywhere because all potential audiences have their preferred platform and it’s up to us to find them, not the other way around. Everyone IS giving everything away these days. Licensing, Merch and VIP packages are the current way to make money in music as a performer.




14.Best moment of your career so far? 


It will happen on August 27th this month. We are supporting the band Red at a great local venue called The Forge. Red is one of my favorite bands. It will be cool to share the stage with them.


  

15.Your message to the fans? The amount of work and money that goes into operating a band these days is tremendous. When you run across an unsigned band that moves you, support them by buying a t-shirt, following them on social and/or telling a friend. Don’t let all the noise out there scare you away from discovering and supporting new music. A lot of bands are working very hard against all odds. Positive feedback is an amazing gift for people who are making major sacrifices to turn silence into sound.


Bonus Question who do you bring back


Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy

Chris Cornell

ADDISONS WAY JOIN THE BREW CRUE AND DROP ORIGIN ON THE WORLD

1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it? What is your name and what do you do for the band? 

My name is Kahler Legacy, and I am the frontman (vocals & guitar), studio engineer and designer for the band. After going through a few name changes to avoid sharing a name with other bands, we compiled a list of names that came from multiple sources (books, TV show episodes, poetry, street names and more). We don't exactly recall where “Addisons Way" was derived from, but we do know it hadn't been used anywhere else, and all domain names were available, so we put it to a vote and have been known as Addisons Way ever since. 


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound. 


We are currently located in Fredericton NB, Canada. Our music isn’t so much influenced by where we live as it is influenced by our collective musical backgrounds. 


3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people? 


The four of us have such a broad range of musical influences that it would be difficult to pinpoint specifics, but we do all greatly appreciate the music from Periphery, Linkin Park, Protest the Hero, Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Def Leppard, and more. 


4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by? 


I can confidentially say that both myself and James (guitar) would absolutely love an endorsement from Paul Reed Smith, however as a band we would be content with endorsements from any company that we can stand behind who supports artists and makes great products! 


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now? 


 


This band started quite some time ago as an idea – to create heavier rock music with a wall of vocal harmonies similar to Def Leppard. Songs that could be heard on the radio, without sacrificing our sound or over producing simply to fit in. 

6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time? We are always striving to create music that can be enjoyed by a vast range of people, regardless of preferences. While keeping a certain vibe to our music, we also try to keep up with the current trends and incorporate elements that give us that new, but classic sound. 


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live? 


We absolutely understand how elements in a recording can often just not be reproduced live. We record our own music, and unless we run backing tracks, it would be difficult to reproduce the exact sound. However, the core of a band performing well live and being entertaining is just as important, if not more important than simply providing good recordings. We spend half our band time in the studio, and the other half rehearsing our material, so I believe we have a good balance. That being said, we wouldn’t lose respect for a band per say, but we do believe that a band who works hard and performs well should not sound terrible live. 


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know? 


I would say that we are, at our core, a Rock band that leans heavily toward metal elements. 


9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular? Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favour with talent? 


I think most people, regardless of profession, would love the concept of fame, no matter where it came from, and if the opportunity presented itself, we would be hard-pressed to say no. However, we absolutely would prefer to be known or favoured because of our talent, our songs, and how they speak to each individual listener. 


 

10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? 

One of the things we pride ourselves in, is being as mobile and entertaining on stage as we can. We do have a fair bit of 4-part harmonies that keep us glued to the microphones, however any moment we get, you can expect to see us full of energy and making use of every inch of the stage, while performing our material to the best of our abilities. 


11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new? 


Currently, we only have the one release “Origin,” however, we are hard at work in the studio prepping our next track for release in the coming months. 


12. If you have videos where can we see them? 


We don’t currently have any videos available. 


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free? 


We believe the more platforms your music is available on, the better. It gives you the chance to reach people who may not use one or two of the platforms your tracks are on. 


14.Best moment of your career so far? 


We have had some great moments collectively and as individuals in other bands, however we feel like the best moment of our career has yet to come, so we are anxiously awaiting the day that happens! 


15.Your message to the fans?

 

Don’t ever give up. This industry (and many others) may be a tough one to crack, and some days it may feel like the odds are against you, but don’t ever let that stop you from working hard and doing everything you can to chase your dreams.
Bonus Question who do you bring back: Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy
This question is much too tough for us to decide on as a band, as we have had so many influences between us. If we could jump off the list however, I believe the whole band would agree on bringing back Chester Bennington or Chris Cornell.

Finally starting to get small amount of FM play and some interest in other places. Playing around the state of texas and starting to play in neighboring states.

Fuck That. We are bringing the pain live and on our record. Thats what makes us real as it gets. If its on the CD you better pull it off.


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know?


 Metal / Hard Rock




9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular?
Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent? 


We are all extremely talented and take our music very seriously. I also like to chop stuff up with a chainsaw and smash it because i believe that go’s hand in hand with metal. We put on a show and put all our talents together. On the other end of that.. I don't really care how we make it but we want to make a living doing this. We def don't want to be some circus sideshow but... I mean Red Hot Chilli Peppers put socks on their dicks to make it. And now their in the rock n roll hall of fame… not saying that's what I want to do but no one gave a shit about fleas abilities until they became better known.




10.Tell us what to expect from you live.


Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? INTENSITY at its peak. Very energetic hard hitting show every second your in the room. No one will forget TEXAS 223 if you see us live and we strive to make that happen every time we play. From screaming in your face to killer solos from chad to machine gun double bass from Benjamin and Kolton pulling us all together with bass. We are a sonic force that hits hard and represents metal. Just to top it off we pull out a chainsaw at the end of the show and chop up some stuff and smash it. People always love that shit :)


11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new?


We have released five singles and our self titled debut album called TEXAS 223. We are always writing new material. No set release or record dates.




12. If you have videos where can we see them?
 

Youtube, our website, Facebook


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free?


Yes i think social media and music sites like those are very important to get out there. And. Yes everyone wants everything free. It pisses me the fuck off. They want the music free. They want us to play for free. Its bullshit. I guess its just the position the industry is in and also us as a band. It sucks. Period. We also still love to do it and we are here to weather the storm. We want to make it as a band and that means paying the bills to.


14.Best moment of your career so far?


There are many great moments from opening up for some of my favorite national acts like Avatar and Saving Abel and Dark Tranquility to getting airplay for the first time on FM in my hometown.


15.Your message to the fans?
 

We love our fans.
Thank You so much for the continued support. Stay Metal and Come see us when you get a chance!

TEXAS 223 BREWS METAL COFFEE


Texas 223 is from Lubbock, TX. and was formed in 2015 by founding members:

Brittan Church (Lead Vocals / Guitar) and Chad Russell (Lead Guitar, Vocals/Screams).

Their vision for Texas 223 was established once the two began writing and recording music in 2016. Drummer Benjamin Villalobos, and bassist Kilton Westbrook joined after that.

In 2017, Chad and Brittan teamed up with Grammy Award winning producer/engineer, Chuck Alkazian, to produce their self-titled debut record. Texas 223 is influenced by all things metal, which has lent itself to their heavy riffs, bringing a hard- hitting sonic force to their audience.

Brittan’s no bullshit approach to lyrics and singing combined with Chad’s epic guitar solos, shows how metal is done the Texas way!
