Coming on the 19th of march is going to be an epic day of music in Ogden. Picture it in ruins is coming to play they metal matinee at the basement. It's an early show At one but don't let that stop you from witnessing the magic that is ' picture it in ruins'. Brutal thrashing and melodic harmonies make picture it in ruins and beautiful mix. You will be blown away by this band and leave wondering why you haven't listened to them sooner. I got they chance to do a little pre-show interview with one of they band members so check it gout and start getting geared up for "THE METAL MATINEE" at The Basement.
all questions answered by Cody Stevenson
♥introduce the band members and the instruments they play. Eddie Kopfman- guitar, Chris Chamber- guitar, Lucas Friebel- vocals, Caleb Stevenson- drums, Cody Stevenson- bass
♥What made you want to play music? i guess just growing up listening to music really. Seemed like a good use of time.
♥how did you meet? We all meet in school, just at different times.
♥how was the band formed? Caleb, Ed, and I had been playing together already for some time and wanted to expand our sound. We added Luke to vocals right before a summer tour one year, and we asked Chris to come just to hang out. He learned our songs on the way to Arizona and he's been with us ever since.
♥your band has been together for a long time, how has your music evolved? Well, our music had evolved just as our tastes in music have changed. Started out as a simple punk band, and grew gradually into what we are today.
♥what are your musical influences? anything and everything
♥describe picture it in ruins. Picture it in ruins is everything we want to hear in music. I'm sure we resemble other bands, but we try to be original as we can. People say we sound like Between The Buried And Me with our own spin on it.
♥Your touring with antagonist, how has the tour been so far? Hasn't started yet, but i have a good feeling about it. The guys in Antagonist are awesome, and we always like playing shows with them.
♥what is the music scene like in green river, wy? Honestly not much of a scene. There are concerts here and there, but it's not like bigger cities. Tours don't come through, so kids usually drive to SLC if they want to see bands play.
♥coming from a small town how do you keep the buzz around your band alive? We use the Internet a lot, and we've been lucky enough to be featured on blog pages. We don't tour a ton, so it's important to try and keep people from forgetting about us.
♥There has been quite a few articles online raving about Picture it in ruins, any talks of being signed soon? Not really.Those articles have been great, and we gained quite a few fans from them, no signs of that right now.
What label would you love to be on? Prosthetic Records would be nice, or Metal Blade. Lots of talented bands on both labels
♥What band would you love to tour with? Love to tour with any band, but Protest The Hero would be awesome, as well as Between The Buried And Me.
♥Any suggestions on lessser known bands you think we should hear? SLC local band Dethrone The Sovereign are a very talented group, also Fallujah from San Francisco, CA
♥Are you planning on doing anything special while in ogden, utah? Hopefully just seeing some familiar faces and friends from the area.
