The road to success, or even survival, for any band is a difficult one. For a band like Mnemic, that's never found a way to break through in the United States for a wide assortment of reasons, it can be even that much harder. For every band, from the smallest local band to Metallica or Aerosmith, there always seems to come a point where the band is tested to decide if they should move forward or pack it in.
That time seemingly came for Mnemic following the release of their SONS OF THE SYSTEM release. It was at this point that 3/5 of the band turned over. This left the band's lone original member Mircea Gabriel Eftemie with a decision - continue Mnemic which has always shown the potential but has never broken through on the biggest stage, or call it a day and try something else. According to Eftemie, there really was no decision like this to be made. Mnemic found new members and went about the business of recording their latest release, MNEMESIS. As he explained to PITRIFF recently, the turnover of members did present it's own set of challenges, but never so much so that he ever considered putting an end to Mnemic. Here's the conversation:
As '90s and '00s metal developed, one of those that had a solid run was the band Soil. Their distinct brand of universally solid barroom rock was combined with a sense of modern flavor to give them a unique experience that was all their own. Unfortunately for the band, they had a very, very public fallout between themselves and vocalist Ryan McCombs in 2004 when the vocalist left to join Drowning Pool. The band continued on to have moderate success, but fans always longed for the day when McCombs would find his way back to the group.
That day is today. The band recently announced that McCombs has rejoined the fold. The band are playing shows again, writing new music, and preparing a brand new DVD called RE-LIVE-ING THE SCARS. Through the glory and ease of Email, PITRIFF caught up with bassist Tim King to get some insight into the reunion, and just how the band got past some of the public negativity they let loose on each other a decade ago in order to work together again.
