Exclusive Premiere: Intervals, “Moment Marauder”
It’d be a grave mistake to hastily classify Intervals as just another in a long stream of modern metal bands with the pluralized form of a single word as their band name (Textures, Structures, Volumes, Reflections, etc), which seems to be the new equivalent of “Verb the Noun” when it comes to trends in metal band names. It’d also be a mistake to brand them as a generic progressive metal band, or, worse, a djent band, though they do dabble in those arts. But you know better than that, MetalSucks reader, and you’re gonna give Intervals a shot. You’re also going to like them.
I stand by my earlier assessment that the single band Intervals remind me of most is The Human Abstract. It’s that neo-classical approach to composition, that penchant for penning a memorable melody, those hooky vocal lines (courtesy of ex-HAARP Machine singer Mike Semesky). It’s probably no coincidence, then, that ex-THA bassist Henry Selva has played some shows with Intervals and that the band is managed by THA drummer Brett Powell. It’s all in the family.
Check out “Moment Marauder” below. Intervals’ debut album A Voice Within comes out tomorrow, March 4th; order here. Catch them on tour right now with Protest the Hero, Battlecross and The Safety Fire (dates here).
