pacific-skylin-ep
Pacific Skyline is made up of members, Chris Cardone (Vocals), Joey Miller (Drums), Calvin Bridges (Bass) and Drew Ferguson (Guitar), as I said above these guys have a really unique sound and fusion of Electronica and Metal, I know right you wouldn’t this that those two genres would work together, but Pacific Skyline have made electronica and metal mesh together seamlessly and fan’s of both genres will love and appreciate this marriage made in heaven.  Pacific Skyline hail from Ocean Springs, Mississippi and released their EP ‘Out Of This World’ in July of this year. I don’t normally get into metal, but Pacific Skyline have managed to get my attention, not only is the sound like nothing I have ever heard before, it’s mixed flawlessly and the arrangement of instruments are just as flawless, Chris’s vocals are perfect metal vocals but he also has a really great tone and grit when he is not doing metal vocals.

The boys are hugely talented and I believe they deserve a spot in your playlist, to accomplish the fusion of two genres that let’s face it, really shouldn’t work together is a major feat and they have been able to do it so seamlessly, so I take my hat off to you boys! Remember the name Pacific Skyline, they are definitely ones to watch.
The boys were kind enough to take some time out and answers the Skatronixxx Fresh Music Friday Q&A check it below.

Skatronixxx Fresh Music Friday’s Q&A

Presh: If there was one person you could play your music too, who would it be and what?
Pacific Skyline: well there isn’t just one person we would want to play for unless only one person came to our show, we would love to play for everyone on earth and because having our music connect with people is one of the best feelings in the world
Presh: Is there a story or inspiration behind the band’s name? 
PS: well we were on a road trip across the country and didn’t have a band name at the time but we had music ready to go and just couldn’t think of anything to save our lives until we came upon California and saw the beautiful skyline and said, “what about Pacific Skyline?
Presh: For our readers who have not heard you music yet, describe your sound in five words.
PS: Mix of Edm and Metal
Presh: The fusion of genre you have are really unique, how did your sound come about?
PS: We started off as a straight EDM boy band back in 2009 then started adding guitar and real drums into the music
Presh: You Released your EP “Out Of This World” in July, it a prequel to an upcoming album? And what’s next for Pacific Skyline?
PS: It’s not really a prequel to an album but we do have some more ground-breaking music and a music video on the way in late December/early 2017

Stu’s Track Of The Week 23/07/16

rsz_2maxresdefault

So here we are again and it’s time for my Track Of The Week and this weeks choice comes from Asking Alexandria and the song Not The American Average from the album Stand Up and Scream which was released in 2009.

The music video for the song was not released until 2011 and is a live performance piece filmed whilst they were on there Epicentre tour.

The lyrics for the song are as follows.

1, 2, 3, 4!
(All the things that she said, was it all in my head?)

Come on, baby,
Keep it down.
Honey, hush your lips.
Clothes trailing
From the backdoor
To the bedroom
And I don’t even know your name.
Give me all you’ve got.
Make this night worth my time,
Make this worth my time (oh!)

What I would give to live this night again!
I knew when I first saw you,
You would fuck like a whore!
You’d fuck like a whore!
I can hear you scream for more! (yeah!)

Your thighs were made for cheeks to graze.
My lips, your poison,
They bring you to your knees.
[2x]

Ah, come on!

Girl, get down,
It’s almost over!
Take it all the way!
Oh!

You stupid fucking whore!

And after all of all my dreaming being only you,
You’re standing there, baby, oh,
The things that I could do!
Back to the wall with a drink in my hand!
Back it up, baby, ride, ride, ride!

One step too late
And I never told you (never told you)
That I can’t take
Another disappointment.
Breathing and grasping all leads to another messy ending.
Breathing and grasping all leads to another messy ending.

Ten inch!

With your back against the wall!
With your face buried in the pillow!
I see you cold!
I feel you heartless!
Bitch!
You stupid fucking bitch!
You stupid fucking bitch!

Fucking bitch.

As always turn up loud and bang your head and I hope you enjoy this weeks track selection and for all your alternative music needs stick with @Deadpool_1984 only at skatronixxx.com

Stu’s Track Of The Week 17/06/16

rsz_hqdefault

So it’s that time again for my track of the week and this week I have gone for Slipknot – Wait And Bleed. This track comes from the bands debut self titled album released back in 1999 and peaked at number 34 on the American Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart. 

The meaning behind the song is as follows.

“Wait and Bleed” is about a man who keeps getting repetitive black and white dreams about laying in a bathtub full of his own blood with his wrists cut. One day, the man wakes up and sees that his dreams have become a reality, but he doesn’t want to believe it and he attempts to fall back asleep again.

There are two music videos for “Wait and Bleed”; the first, directed by Thomas Mignone, features footage of a live performance of the song filmed during the band’s appearance at Ozzfest on September 1, 1999 with the studio track overdubbed. The second, known as the “Claymation version”, depicts all nine band members as small, animated, doll-like creatures inside a laboratory inhabited by a man who is attempting to catch them. Eventually, the band cause the man to fall over and be stung by insects dropping from a jar. As the band looks over the man, Chris Fehn‘s doll covers him in fuel before seeing all 9 band members looking at him, Shawn Crahan then sets the man alight, killing him.

So here we are turn up loud and bang your head Maggots to Slipknot – Wait And Bleed

The first line up consisted of Carlos, Hopper and myself splitting vocal duties, I also played guitar while Ant was on drums.
