- 1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before? First let me say thank you from all of us here at the *sentenced on sunday* camp for interview and a big FUCK YEAH as well ! ! ! We have all been in different metal groups in chicago since 80s TEMPTER (CHI) ANIMOSITY, DECREPIT UTH, DISTORTED PULSE, SMASH MOUTH -i need help remembering the rest the rest (yikes). Ed , trav and toby have spent last few years in band SMASH CORPS and toby has another band BLACK SEPTEMBER (prosthetic records) whilst me and bill have have not played in 10 years!!! Way too long sot eventually metal minds united and couple phone calls later we decided that we need to throw some brutal back out there not only for our fans but for us as well.
- 2. How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the ep?What you hear is 25 years of metal- destruction, slayer,celtic frost, sepultura fuck theres even some fucking carnivore in there. While we never try to sound like anyone there are certain parts on songs that shows the major influence that these bands have had on us.
we all are very pleased how the e.p. had turned out! each song is different but same....HEAVY!!!!!
- 3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the music explores?Well this is easy, first song TORNADO travis said it reminded him of a tornado..which is a very cool subject, we all felt same after hearing that and started writing. shortly after there was waves of deadly tornados ( Tenn and Joplin mo ) so that def was a bittersweet subject but song had been finished at that point.
CODE OV THE WOLVES- another no brainer, the song sounded to me (mark) some rabid fuckin wolves. everyone agrees, too easy!!!!!!
PREDATOR was eds work. song is about the hit man putting your ass in the grave anytime anyhow...good stuff. Eddie b wrote the majority of songs on e.p....he is thick with the metal wisdom!!!
- 4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?SENTENCED ON SUNDAY we wanted a great name with an impact. This was not easy! I thought on how much it sucks to be sentenced and then to have it done on a sunday, fuck no...we recieve alot comments on how they love the name. we love it too-
- 5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?Unfortunately there are alot of shows with the shitty draw ( beat shows as we
like to call em ) and we have been there and done that.there are some shows with a decent draw but they are few and far between. We feel our time is better served writing and recording material and getting signed at this point. when we do it will be no bullshit- brutal and of course loud as fuck.
- 6. Do you have any touring plans for the future?WE WANT TO TOUR AND KILL EVERYONE.
- 7. Currently you are unsinged, are you looking for a label and if so what kind of label do you feel that would be a perfect fit for the music?Our drummer toby also plays with BLACK SEPTEMBER and are signed with PROSTHETIC RECORDS. He is getting great shows and as far as im aware of he is happy...ROADRUNNER- RELAPSE- SUMMERRIAN- METAL BLADE! We want to tour and will be soon. Do your record company some justice and SIGN THIS SHIT!!!!!!
- 8. Are there any side projects besides this band or is this a full time line-up?Yes Ed, trav, and toby play in SMASHCORPS and toby plays in BLACK SEPTEMBER. you can check that metal on facebook.
- 9. On a worldwide level how has your music been recieved by extreme metal fans?Its been absolutely overwhelming!!! We will be recording 6 songs soon and want to give the best metal possible.We appreciate every fan of SENTENCED everywhere!!!! The new songs will not be weak or dissapoint-
- 10. What direction do you see the music heading into on future releases?We will never compromise the heavy nor come out with a style that is trendy.we will use same formula as the wolves e.p., we will pack them bitches with more of the good.and let em rip. Please believe- next songs will leave bigger blisters on your face.
- 11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?SABBATH, PRIEST, ZEPPELIN, MAIDEN, METTALICA, SLAYER and of course CRO-MAGS ! ! ! We love all genres of metal , if its heavy and done well ,were down. We are impatiently waiting on the new BEHEMOTH as well as the new WARBRINGER ! ! ! (yep)
- 12. Outside of music what are some of your interests?Ahhhh lets see...Bill is co-founder of 333 productions which is based on shark research ,yes he swims with sharks and has some amazing footage and pics! You can check that on facebook as well as you tube.
Travis is all about bass, movies, pincheez and the metal ! Toby is recording engineer and will be touring around New England area with BLACK SEPTEMBER . if your in chicago area need some brutal recorded hit him up at www.tobynickles.com . Eddie b is all bout the metal and metal wisdom, pincheez and has 3 or 4 akitas to care for. ( do not fuck with him ) ! !
