Spectating the Tech-Fest weekend were music fans and musicians alike, and one such band we were introduced to were Schemata Theory. We managed to sit down with them for a few words about the band and their new EP.
Canadian prog metallers Protest The Hero have made a name for themselves in recent years as industry trailblazers, having led a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign through Indie Go-Go for 2013’s Volition, and more recently with the their BandCamp subscription EP release, Pacific Myth. We caught up with guitarist Luke Hoskin at Tech-Fest to discuss the industry as it is today, the future of the band and more.
In its fifth year, Newark's Tech-Fest is fast becoming THE place to be for any fan of tech, prog, metal and anything in between. Arguably its biggest year to date with a huge line-up including headliners Animals As Leaders, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me, we took a trip to the niche festival for a weekend of riffs, and plenty of them!
