COVER STORY
THE BRONX: Having already unleashed two stunning albums loaded with old-school punk, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and some seriously ass-kicking tunes, The Bronx is back with The Bronx (III), the musical highpoint of their career to date. The 2009 version of The Bronx is meaner, leaner, and now a beast wholly independent of any master, having extricated themselves from the major label fold and launched their own record label. Their new album shows a looser side to the Los Angeles based band as they embrace simplicity, bucking the trend for highly polished and sterile sounding records, and instead making a glorious sonic mess that is all the more exciting for its visceral rawness.
    We caught up with vocalist Matt Caughthran and guitarist Joby J. Ford during a stop in New York just ahead of the release of The Bronx (III) and talked independence, feeling like a criminal, an unflinching intent to do things on their own terms, sleazebag ear piercings, and why 2009 is going to be the year of The Bronx.


IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS
HASTE THE DAY: Forming while still in high school, Haste the Day has consistently toured their asses off and proved themselves to be a formidable band in the metalcore scene. With three powerful albums already in their catalog, Dreamer, their fourth release on Solid State Records, has them delivering their strongest collection to date, an album shot through with equal parts muscular metal and contagious melodies. Guitarist and founding member Brennan Chaulk talks Dreamer, good times and bad, and embracing metalheads everywhere.

BRING ME THE HORIZON: With savage hardcore brought to life by a blistering metallic attack, Bring Me the Horizon embraces melody and head sticking choruses on their new album, Suicide Season. The band has already met with massive success overseas and is reaching similar heights in North America. Overcoming controversy, Bring Me the Horizon may very well be the next big thing on these shores, too. Frontman Oliver Sykes gets us up to speed on Bring Me the Horizon and the opening of Suicide Season at a recent tour stop.

FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND: Memory and Humanity is the fourth album from Funeral for a Friend in five years, and it is the defining statement of an already stunning musical career. Having long since evolved from their screamo origins, the band is firing on all cylinders, and in delivering a sublime combination of melody and muscle with their new release, 2009 is primed to be their year. Vocalist Matt Davies gives us the lowdown on the new record, severing major label ties, and striving forth as determinedly as ever.

ATTACK ATTACK!: Two days after Attack Attack! vocalist Austin Carlile suddenly departed the band, we spoke with drummer Andrew Wetzel in an attempt to get some answers regarding the chaotic and confusing situation. Making the most of the awkward circumstances and honoring an interview arranged just prior to Carlile’s absence, Wetzel is still excited to talk about Attack Attack!’s new album, Someday Came Suddenly, but chooses his words carefully.

TRAP THEM: It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that vocalist Ryan McKenney and guitarist Brian Izzi—the founders and lifeblood of Trap Them—play the music that they want to play. As such, the band’s raging and filthy blend of old-school Swedish death metal, D-beaten punk, and grindcore is as real as it is fatal if swallowed. Seizures in Barren Praise is the latest bludgeoning installment in what is turning out to be a creatively fruitful and prolific career. Ryan McKenney runs it down for us.


A DAY TO REMEMBER: Jeremy McKinnon is feeling stressed. He’s just lost his all-important cell phone, and the band is in the final recording sprint towards the completion of its new album, Homesick. Still, the vocalist is more than happy to spill the beans on A Day to Remember’s second studio effort for Victory Records, and his enthusiasm about the quintet’s latest opus is clear in his voice.

INTRONAUT: Call Intronaut post-metal, progressive, or even doom dinocore, just don’t call the Los Angeles based band lazy. This drive and constant push for musical evolution culminates in their most expansive effort yet, Prehistoricisms. Based loosely around the initial spark of life and everything that came after, Prehistoricisms takes the band’s open-ended prog sludge and stretches it to the corners of the imagination. Bassist Joe Lester discusses the finer points of monster making.

LUNA MORTIS: Raging thrash. Technical progressive metal. Emotionally charged melodic death. While many bands have combined such disparate elements into their style, few have done it so cohesively and organically as Luna Mortis. Perhaps it is the lack of distraction in their hometown of Madison, Wisconsin that has allowed them to focus solely on the music. Whatever it is, it works wonders on The Absence. Vocalist Mary Zimmer details the band’s backstory. 

LIGHT THIS CITY: Light This City vocalist Laura Nichol and drummer Ben Murray are leaving one hell of a mark on their way out. After a six year career, three well received platters of melodic death metal, and thousands of miles under their belts, Light This City is going out in a blaze of metallic glory with their raging farewell, Stormchaser. Ben Murray bids farewell to Light This City.
