COVER STORY
FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES: Necessity may be the mother of invention, but for From Autumn to Ashes, necessity has become the mother of reinvention. With the abrupt exit of former singer Ben Perri, From Autumn to Ashes’ drummer Francis Mark has taken over the role of lead vocalist for the band’s latest album—the excellent, dynamic, and hair-on-fire Holding a Wolf by the Ears. Relishing his new position, Mark and the die-hard members of From Autumn to Ashes—guitarists Rob Lauritsen and Brian Deneeve, and bassist Josh Newton—have a revitalized energy that’s propelling the band into the second phase of their already storied music career.

IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS
SILVERSTEIN: The five members of hardcore/emo favorites Silverstein were sequestered in Los Angeles, far away from any final, bone chilling gasps of winter in their native Canada—but not, as it turned out, safe from Mother Nature entirely. Singer Shane Told, drummer Paul Koehler, and bassist Bill Hamilton gathered in the peaceful garden area outside of their studio to discuss Arrivals & Departures, as well as a wide-ranging array of topics, from fan tattoos to cancer awareness.

HOPESFALL: Magnetic North, the group’s follow-up to 2004’s A Types, resounds with practice and acquired skill, a solid next step in their sometimes turbulent (thanks mostly to frequent lineup changes) career. Singer Jay Forrest takes a break from his day to discuss the new record and how Hopesfall got to where they are today.

DIMMU BORGIR: Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz has a lot of plans for the summer. Not only will his band hit the European festival circuit and launch their gigantic The Invaluable Darkness tour to promote In Sorte Diaboli, Dimmu Borgir’s latest black metal masterwork, the guitarist is also hoping to get his motorcycle license.

THE ALMOST: Aaron Gillespie is perhaps best known for his multi-tasking abilities in heavy rock band Underoath, the group for which he both sings and plays drums. But now Gillespie may also be known for a different kind of music, the sort he pens and plays for his other band The Almost.

VANNA: With enough brutality to knock you down and plenty of hooks to pick you right back up, Vanna conjures up screamo, metalcore, and melody on their full-length debut, Curses. Vocalist Chris Preece gives us the scoop on the new album, the band’s post-hardcore crossover appeal, and his brushes with the law.

DESPISED ICON vocalist Alex Erian sits in a van parked in an almost entirely abandoned lot waiting to rendezvous with his bandmates.“The imagery of our songs is really dark, and our lyrics deal with our personal fears, losses, regrets,” Erian says, laughing, when the stark juxtaposition between his personal demeanor and musical persona is noted.

THE CHARIOT: As the former singer of Norma Jean and current frontman of hectic metalcore heroes The Chariot, Josh Scogin has a fairly good idea of the ins and outs of life on the road, and he’s got precious little patience for colleagues in the scene that whine incessantly about it. “If you’re not in this to have fun and hang out with kids, it’s time to pick another genre,” Scogin says.

HORSE THE BAND: Often referred to as Nintendo core, primarily by those that haven’t an inkling of how to describe Horse the Band’s keyboard and effect-laden hardcore lunacy, the California quintet's new album, A Natural Death, is sure to make many a critic’s year-end list.

COMEBACK KID: A large abandoned building sinking into a barren wasteland adorns the cover of the latest Comeback Kid record Broadcasting… “It’s a song about the fear instilling powers of the media and how that power is being used,” Comeback Kid vocalist Andrew Neufeld explains when asked to elucidate the meaning of the title track.
