Interview with Shadow of Intent!

Genre(s): Symphonic Deathcore
Location: N/A

PSAB: Where does the name "Shadow Of Intent" come from?

SOI: The name Shadow Of Intent actually comes from the Halo game series. Our EP and lyrical content was inspired by the series as well, so we figured we should have a name that is also relative!
PSAB: If you could tour any part of the world, which part would it be and why?

SOI: Honestly, I'd love to tour anywhere. Neither of us have ever been on a big tour before, and since we're only a two piece project it's impossible. It's always been a huge dream of mine. Anywhere in the world would do thought if we were somehow able to build a line up.

PSAB: What are your hobbies outside of creating music?

SOI: I enjoy playing copious amounts of video games when I'm not working haha. I collect CD's as well. I just started this year and I'm up to about 75 hard copies at this point. There's really not much I do outside of music, music is practically my entire life.

PSAB: What plays the most influence on your music? This can be non-music related.

SOI: Chris's playing was heavily influenced by Abigail Williams, Dimmu Borgir, The Black Dahlia Murder and Within the Ruins. He's an amazing songwriter and wrote all of the music on the EP. He did the music, I did the lyrics. I was obviously influenced by the Halo series, as you can tell by the lyrical content. But the music that heavily influenced me was Bloodbath, SepticFlesh, Carach Angren and The Black Dahlia Murder.

PSAB: How's the local metal scene in your area?

SOI: The local metal scene in our area is pretty 50/50 in a way. There's a whole bunch of bands, but there isn't a whole lot of places to play. And it's especially hard to find a venue that's in a convenient spot. They're all pretty scattered throughout the area, and not a whole lot of people go to the local shows. I've played plenty of shows where only a handful of kids showed up. I'm sure it's pretty much the same way for any other area though, or maybe not.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?

SOI: Our shout out to our fans would be to stay tuned with Shadow Of Intent! The EP Inferi Sententia is only the beginning, and we plan on delivering better, faster, more epic and technical material than before.
