1. Being a rather young band formed in 2015, I would hke to ask what are the most memorable memories would you extract from this first year of existence?

G "My personal memorable memones from our first year of existence would have to be 98 Hemenway It is one of the dorms at Berklee College of Music we lived in for the summer It was a fucking nightmare No air conditioning and mice everywhere It got to a potnt when Sean Brady and I would be working on a song and we would see three mtce run by our feet and not be phased They would come all the time. I actually named one of them Jerry Never pa’d hts port’on of rooming and food haha."

2. Take us briefly through your life's musical journey. Were either of you classically trained as a child? Musically, what were some of your early favontes? What music did you enjoy early on, but later grew out of?

G "None of us were classically trained when we were kids Berklee College of Music, for me, is the first time I really dwed into theory and harmony of music In terms of music that I have grown out of. I haven't haha. Metal music has been a part of my life since I was in the 6th grade and it continues .to be apart of who I am as a person. It truly is a lifestyle that I feel most real and organic in "

3. How much time and effort do you spend on the band to get everything to look and sound the right way?

G "Our rehearsals are focused on tightness Since we are all busy with work and school, a lot relies on independent practrce. My guys know that they have to show up to rehearsal knowing their individual assignments in each song When we rehearse together, that's when the magtc really happens Maktng the sound sharper, tighter, louder, and worktng on showmanship as opposed to trying to figure out a nff or drum pattern for an hour and a half saves time and definttely gets us more prepared for the show"

4 How do you find your sound? You have taken a whole bunch of tnfluences such as groove, hard rock, heavy metal and thrash and mix them together to make it your brew.

G "The hope and mtss]on for Intoxicated Rage Js to change the perception to metal to the ignorant ear We want people to move, dance, mosh, and have a great time We try to make our shows as engaging and as fun as possible for everyone in the room- If we can produce music that can help create a bond, a memory, or even a moment for someone to go nuts with us in the end that's what matters most"

5 Talking about your first EP "Patient Zero Boston", could you tell me something about the process of making these five songs? What kind of composing is more congenial and insplratlve for you?

G "1 take what I feel and I transcribe it into music What better way to remove all the shlt and filth that builds up inside you then ye]hng into a microphone and playing a badass rift? These songs deal w’th a lot of personal built up rampage that I have carried and it needed to be released, hence the birth of an Patient Zero Boston."

6 Being produced the EP for yourselevs, I should have to ask how hard is it to release a demo on your own and then spread it to the right channels?

G "Its work, but the right people respond Now I'm not saying every club/venue we submit to responds back, but the people who have, know exactly what we are aiming for To be the loudest, heaviest, and most entertaining live band out there"

7 How pleased are you with your final recorded work? How are the general reactions towards the EP?

G "I wanted something raw Literally something that almost sounded like it was recorded live I want the listener to get the true experience of what it sounds and feels like to be at an Intoxicated Rage show Johnny Mo, a close friend of the band and an Music Production and Engineer major at Berklee, helped engineer the recording and captured that feeling We could have spent hundreds of dollars on really getting a tight studio sounding recording, but I rather give out what we really sound like Not like the processed music heard today. Real and RAWI That's why we recorded it in our basement."

8. How do you see the character of topics you transfer through Intoxicated Rage's lyncs? Is it positive or negative, or neutral?

G "The lyrics are motivational Everyone has a story and some people have some very dark stories I hope when people hear Intoxicated Rage's music, they don't feel alone. Even a hard motherfucker like me doesn't like to feel alone.

9. Do you have serious opportunities for live shows in, your area? How many times per month can you play live?

G "Currently, we are playing a Showcase Festival with Landmark Events in August, which will hopefully give us an opportunity to expand our music and shows to Canada and work with notable producer Glen Robinson, who has worked with AC/DC, The Beach Boys, and Deep Purple We will also be playing a show at the end of July in Worcester, MA. We try to play as much as we can. The more we play, the better we become and the more people recognize us" 

10. Please tell us what are the bands to keep an eye on ’n your local underground at the moment. Do you feel a strong connection between the ug bands in Boston, or Is it more like everybody following its own way?

G "Being a very fresh band, we are still pretty new to the "U G " scene I love to play with as many bands as possible There will, always be a competitive edge, but that's what makes it fun and keeps pushing us to be better Bands that we have played with or have watched that have blown me away are Seven Spires, Beast of Nod, Menthlus, and NO/HUGS These guys really put everything they got Into their shows and they have developed their own unique voice "

11. We live in a globalized world where there are no borders to be crossed thanks to the internet How do you best utihze this to gain the outmost for you band?

G "Everyone is on social media Whether you're the front desk gym guy checking in people or the CEO of a paper company, everyone uses social media either for personal fun or to expand their bus’ness; however, the ’nternet is over-saturated It is easy to skip a bands profile or to ignore someone who asks you to "hke" their page on Facebook Being creatwe hke doing live footage of our shows or posting videos of our hves outside the music realm helps bnng Interest."

12. How do you perceive the advances of technology and the internet changing the music industry In the future?

G. "1 think technology acts like a double edge sword when it comes to the music industry It is truly amazing how we can send my our songs to so many people without even leaving my own home, however, the abJhty to steal music has now become inevitable There are not enough restrictions to the protechon of music People can argue that bands hke Metalhca, Shpknot, Black Sabbath, have enough money to sustain their Iw’ng, but ft doesn't matter. Musicians work hard for their creation. They bleed and sweat for it and for someone to just take it like it's a fucking free sample of roast beef at the deh market makes me fucking sick"

13. Thank you for taking the time to speak to The Pain Fucktory Do you have any final words, or anything you would hke to add?

G "1 want to say thank you to The Pain Fucktory for giwng Intoxicated Rage the opportunity to voice Its music and its name to the pubhc We appreciate the love and will return the favor To all musicians that are working hard day after day to make their dreams come true, keep pushlng and never stop As James Hetfield said, "Dare to fall " If you don't, you will never succeed "

Peace. Love. Metal
