Interview with Virulent!

Genre(s): Metalcore
Location: Phoenix, AZ

PSAB: Where does the band name "Virulent" come from?

Virulent: The band name Virulent was spawned by Guitarist Matt Nisbet to describe the sound. Bitterly, hostile, and highly infectious. It was fitting to what sound we were shooting for.

PSAB: Your album "Empire" is coming out on the 27th of this month. Are you excited for this release?

Virulent: That is correct, Sept. 27th is the release date for "Empire". We are very excited to share our new record with everyone..

PSAB: If you had the choice to tour another country with three other bands. Which country would that be and which three bands would you choose?

Virulent: We hear Germany or Sweden is really big on metal. So possibly either one of those two countries. As for bands to tour with we would have to say, Acacia Strain, Lamb of God, and Emmure would be our top 3.

PSAB: How's the local scene in Phoenix, AZ?

Virulent: The local scene on Phoenix is absolutely amazing. There is a lot of great talents here. Everyone is really friendly. We all like to support each others shows and hang out drinking beer. Its a very supportive scene in Phoenix.

PSAB: What are your hobbies outside of the band and creating music?

Virulent: Hot rods, video games, music gear and drinking beer.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?

Virulent: We would have to give shouts out to our record label, Sullen Musik. Our sponsors, Impact Studio's, Sullen Artist Collective, Big Time Threads, Bestin Case Road Cases, and to everyone who has shown us support and love. Huge "Thanks" to all.

Interview with Shot Done Won!

Genre(s): Deathcore/Beatdown
Location: Nuremberg, Germany
PSAB: Where does your band name "Shot Done Won" come from?

SDW: The band name 'Shot Done Won' was just a simple idea. Straight, brutal and catchy.

PSAB: How has your new EP 'In Front of Shots' being doing? How's the feedback been for it?

SDW: At this time we shipped EP's in germany for sure, also to america, japan and others. We get great feedback. We ship worldwide and here you can order:

PSAB: You originally started as a one man band, then a two man band, then to a full fledged band. Why didn't you start as a full band originally? Also, why did you decide to turn the band to a traditional band than a one man band?

SDW: For the first 'Shot Done Won' was a brutal project, because you can do everything how you wanna do. The idea to form 'Shot Done Won' to a band was also there at this time, but the hardest thing in making music together is to find the right people. Now we are a band, wanna do brutal music, wanna play a lot of live shows and do as unity.      

PSAB: What's the metal scene like in Nuremberg, Germany?

SDW: The metal scene here... it's hard. Sadly it's not a big scene anymore, sadly it's more like many little groupings instead of working together as a big thing. Fuck the subgenres and work together as a big fist in metal, hardcore and grindcore. That's it. So much is so superficial and that's bullshit.  

PSAB: If you had the choice to tour any country. Which country would that be and why?

SDW: We wanna play shows in every country, meet a lot of new people and knot new contacts. Just book us and we find a deal.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give?

SDW: Check out our music, support us and other bands and live the music.
