Meet Your New Favorite Death Metal Vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy of ABNORMALITY

Sociopathic Constructs serves to further cement Abnormality's place at the cutting edge of savage ultra-technical death metal. With this release, the quintet have stepped up their game across the board, making for a record that is as violent, complex and thought provoking as any you will hear in 2019, and the band were not afraid to explore and mix things up. "I think this record we felt free enough to just go where we wanted to within a song," states guitarist Jeremy Henry. "We had no qualms with switching styles and approaches from riff to riff. To have a whole section grinding away and then just switch gears, hit the brakes and drop a slow, old school Morbid Angel warship groove in there. We felt free to follow our instincts, and just let our influences shine through." 

I had a great chat with Mallika about their new upcoming brutal album SOCIOPATHIC CONSTRUCTS due May 10, 2019 and some insight about the bands future! Check it down below and make sure you support this killer band!

FAMOUS LAST WORDS - INTERVIEW WITH VOCALIST JT

Interview with Vocalist JT

10 years has gone by, what do you think you’ve learned in that time that has influenced your music?   -Jt: I’ve learned you should really go with your gut. As soon as you let other people try to influence your artistic ideas or processes, it’s not gonna be a good time. I know it can be scary when your career and passion are on the line, so you might listen to people around you more than your gut. I’m also not saying to ignore what people around you are saying, you just have to find a balance between what you truly believe is right and the outsider advice.  I was lucky to learn this fairly early on.     You new release Arizona will be out soon, what are you most excited about come release day?   -Jt: Well seeing how most of the songs are out already, I’m mostly just excited to finish the collection! We decided to release this ep one single at a time. Instead of having to wait until May, people got to get a little something new every week or so since we released the first single. It was definitely experimental, but I enjoyed giving each song special attention.     Is there any particular song at the moment that you’re in love with and why would that be?   -Jt: I couldn’t get the Panic At The Disco song “High Hopes” our of my head for the longest time, so I guess that one. It’s just stupid catchy and relatable. Kudos Brendon Urie.     How does this EP differ from your previous release The Incubus?   -Jt: There is a lot different with Arizona. This ep is the first collection of songs that isn’t a concept record since our last ep “Pick Your Poison” came out. It is also the first time we went into the studio with no material. It was literally all written at the studio. Usually we come into the studio incredibly prepared with a well thought out story, all the pre pros and demos etc... but this time, it was just us in a room coming up with songs. The vocal writing process wasn’t much different than it has been in the past, but the instrumental writing process was way different than anything we have ever done.    Did you guys have a concept in mind when writing this EP?   -Jt: We actually didn’t. The idea of just writing something close to us sort of developed as the instrumentals were being written. We went into the studio with NOTHING.     Will there be bundles or anything special fans can get with this release?   -Jt: Absolutely! We have some sick pre order bundles for “Arizona” that you can order at  https://famouslastwords.merchnow.com      Are there any tours you can talk about at this time or will you be playing any summer festivals?   -Jt: We don’t have any festivals lined up, but we do have a headlining tour called The Lost Along The Way Tour, starting May 10th with support from Dayshell, Awake At Last, and At My Mercy. We will be playing some new songs and some old classics. We can’t wait to hit the road again.   Where do you see the band in another 10 years?   -Jt: I really have no idea. That’s all part of the adventure though! I can’t wait to see where this road will take us.   What would you like your band to be remembered by?   -Jt: I’d like us to be remembered by the lyrical content and messages I put into the songs. Hours, upon hours, upon more hours, have gone into the development of stories, characters, lyrics, lessons, and more, have gone into these songs. I strongly feel it was all for something. I think when people really listen to the lyrics and think about them, the songs have the potential to be eye opening.    Any last parting word of what fans can expect this year?   -Jt: We will definitely be hitting the road more, and I’m sure we will be back in the studio in no time.

UNWILL's Interview Of What's To Come- New Album Out Nov 16th

First, thank you for taking time out to chat with us!         • For anyone that hasn’t heard your music before, how would you describe your music? -Just some good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll baby! Like walking hand in hand with god and the devil while your soul is rocketing past Jupiter and your mama is calling after you to take the garbage out.           • You have a new album titled Can’t Kill Me due in November, how was the writing process for your second album, compared to the your first? -We really just consider this our first album. We found these songs, or these songs found us, through just being completely free and open. We weren’t trying to write anything or trying to be anything. It just came.           • Did you guys come into the studio with songs partly written, or was the writing done on site? -Probably some of both. This entire writing and recording process has just been a blur of expression, it’s hard to hold on to.            • Was there anything specific you were trying to achieve with Can’t Kill Me? And does the title have any special significance? -We just had to let people know that we’re here and we aren’t going anywhere. We were all in a dark spot before we started writing this record. These songs are how we pulled ourselves out. The parallel to the title is very clear for us.           • Do you have a scheduled new single on the way that fans can look forward to soon? -We just premiered our video for “Keep It Gold” recently and started streaming another track from the record, “Slaves.” Listen to those and feel the world we’re stepping into with the whole album. It’s a trip.           • Can you give us insight as to what the overall theme of the new album will be, or would you rather leave that up to the listener? -It’s really open to you. We want you to make it mean whatever it needs to for you. For us it’s all about what makes you feel like you can’t go on, can’t be what you need to be. There’s a voice that speaks to all of us and tries to kill our spirit. “Can’t Kill Me” is our fight to shut that voice down and still stand here. It’s a symbolic middle finger to ourselves.            • Is there currently any tour in the works that you can discuss at this time? -We’re working on getting out there to rock out with all of you! Just keep your eyes open to any future dates.            • If you could put together your own tour, which bands would want to play along with? -So many we would love to.  A Korn, Deftones and Nine Inch Nails tour would be pretty unreal though.           • Will there be any bundles available or special items that fans can order with the new album? -We’re just focused on getting the music out digitally right now but we may do some limited runs of vinyl and other things in the future.           • Any parting words of what fans can expect in the near future for UNWILL? Thank you for your time and I wish you a successful album release!  -Thank you, we’re excited for everyone to hear this record. If you want to be free and to rock out we’ll be right there with you. We’re all on this journey together.   Find UNWILL online at the following:   http://www.unwillband.com/    https://www.facebook.com/unwillband    https://open.spotify.com/user/unwillband    https://www.instagram.com/unwillband/
