Buried Realm (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Buried Realm. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? In 2007 I (Josh Dummer) started Buried Realm. I only recorded a few demos, nothing serious.

Decatur (Band Interview)

Today we chat to Decatur. What’s the history of your band? Decatur started while recording our debut record “Badder Than Brooklyn” with Joe Duplaniter at Silver Cord Studios in 2016. We had originally gone there to record under a different name. It was going to be the 5th record released by Jay “Beard” Sarrazin’s old band. But while recording the record the sound that was being created was nothing like Beard’s old band. And since the members that were now playing in that band were completely different and all new members, it was suggested by Joe Duplaniter, Taylor Bingley and Johann Meyer that maybe this would be the best time to start fresh. The members were different, the sound was […]
