You know I turned to Iowa and was recently turned on these guys for a while local life. The so called upon your music and to be honest I've never seen you lied. But I I love film over the records and kind of just won the you know I get this summer so when was your first shows ranking and that tells kind of the evolution. Yeah how we started in when he fourteen and I and I think the first show isn't putting working as well like almost. Four years to the date and we've played attitude it's saloon yes rest in peace and now the grades five you have an implant ever since we Hadley said the old drummer he is with us fervent about two years and then we found Carlos through other bands in grant. We just like bonded with a man man like. And things changed for the better I think the music and they have the data service. Faster now is that man he had thought oh Trevor can change that and yeah. At a that are more death metal so we. Yeah that that's awesome you desert. Then in the northwest for five years those seem pretty much as started a band almost immediately when you when you came here that's the point Allan we're here it is though is to make music what are we go yeah we met Tyler and through Craig's list like two months after we were here and were jamming like weirdly yes we've been economic and started again and out of a Craig the success story at our rationale that's rare hit Africa that's awesome. So let let's see you guys are Brothers. Let's dive into that a little bit and we'll see that. As often as I'd like to see if Lecavalier brother ram yeah exactly and so it but I'm.

Let's tomorrow so what guy yellow gay guys to come to this northwest then why are all places you can go I've delivered his band that rebirth from Arizona within days and we played at Steve seminal of that than on. Yet and yet it's an odd little school Leo I must say I know people listener and a million members and benefited them that's a long time ago Alice selling march for that band that like I'm going to Manhattan do and we love it here like the use it is like the summer July it is like comic that this is beautiful yeah and then you had a real as a Ramos I had this yelled out take it over over the hundreds when he -- -- on the deployment amen yeah it's like the three good months that the C analyst Ethan won a gas that's no male I'm glad that you guys decided to sticker around so let's talk about ranking a little bit like. What what we're if you like bands off the top your head that you're like man. If we could start a band I wanna be in that vein like what I wanna sound lacks in obviously not trying to let me make you label yourself yet. -- little bit about your influences and a panacea full health -- as he would get shared that I had death for sir I mean that's the technicality -- and I think the stuff within it was president Carlos now that we bonded with supple -- play nice you know first thing we did was like let's play you know and was that in a room together relentless political possible terrorist songs you know and we -- oh yeah we're late that's it dude let's get faster and -- we can -- -- -- brother connection -- yeah exactly absolutely so has that has that ever gotten in your way he has ever get a -- little -- I had a little honest with each other since I had could not for the plane like this like it's good for sure like is that -- butt -- the wind the -- -- -- -- Hit at. I like we're doing at this way. Six red not fifth. That's the problem is if you ever make money to others Mamas and you know I exact right here I'll shoot yourself in the foot here have been so let's talk a let's play let's get it one of the songs you'll come back and toggle among more about the band let's let people kind of get the field. What's going out ranking I knew why killing or yards when he introduced the song hero what was once called string and it comes off to a new demo. Yes yet this is the demo record for a tour last November I. We'll probably see a new recording this year we're planning on our record falling foam rounds in the finance rules here stranded by ranking it metal shop the all local episode.

Two thirds Daniel Ricardo Ricky thanks for coming in fellas thank you managed to Griffin and the Leno let Glenn there's a lot of things I wanna try and get squeezed in here before what you guys out here. First and foremost. You guys run record label. You have and how do you think that is impressively difficult absolutely and take a lot of patience I know that definitely so what's the what's the label called and I tell us a little bit about how you got that don't and why you wanted to punish yourself like that happen. Well it's quote within the mine records and we started in 2012. Just pretty much we we are putting out our own music so we were to disable them just that are friends yeah. You that he's being control your own Jack or at least two we did that in united front without bands that relay. Mostly arts and yeah opened with what we can afford grew out catheter. And a rollout is like the lake I hated when the ban would canyon dam owners currently with a sharp being you know I mean the guy likely to be well presented yeah I mean I never wanted to be liked his clout in this yet has he put a lot of effort Hart added value music. Yeah they got a put it in the shiny little pack and half again I'll clue you know dismal -- -- -- -- release it to you it's like everyone just Bernard shortly element to myself now and I mean in the other cars that are with us and then -- -- you know this release this and even looking actually a lot of bands around here tonight a -- get crazy -- and he's ready Arizona fans yeah oh yeah I'm -- northwest as accurately and we've been meeting more bands they kind of knew this year you know so it's Amanda a lot of great bands here so it was like looking around you know that's why we get the all local -- and check out as he gets are fine and everyone welcome pastor who -- if you look that said let's talk a little bit about and might.

And friends you may hear anybody do you wanna shout out some of your favorite northwest veins yeah one of the first bands we may hear was Ryan. And I like car wheels are drummer used be with them and that's how we kind of met again about a split together yet we got that split down with them went on tour with them in last November that's also. But they're also you know Friday death metal it's this lake pretty because though one main guy gave that does everything yet. Other bands a sigh of their main lobbying. It's not a loss goes but as I have yet. Tamils live and oh yeah I mean all women veterans and those guys forever that we don't know the guys and oxygen destroyer but I've been reeling and they're incredibly and there's is that there's really stepped it up to absolutely rule it's good to see it's a good time in northwest metal man data seems like your man there's tons of stuff going on all the time here. Current or past what is your favorite northwest end of all time who really criminal.
