‘The Eighth Note’ is 8 quick Questions with Wellington Musicians.
A chance for us to catch up with people & see what they’re up to, or introduce you to a new musician/band and their music. Up next is new metalcore band Severed Beliefs.


Who are you? Tell us a bit about your music:
We are Severed Beliefs. We play metalcore inspired by acts from the late 90s and early two thousands (Poison the Well, 7a7p, Unbroken).

What have you been working on lately? Any new tracks or albums on the way?
We’ve recently put a lot of work into our Debut demo which is out now on elimination records as well as writing and improving our craft with new tracks for a later release.

Where is the best place people can follow you & find your music?
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and you can find our music on Spotify and the Elimination records Bandcamp. We also have our debut live set shot by Caspar Kneale photography up on his Youtube channel.

What were the 3 most influential albums to you growing up?
Scribe – The Crusader
Mob Deep – The Infamous
Rage Against the Machine – Evil Empire
Nevermind – Nirvana
Alive or Just Breathing – Killswitch Engage
Hybrid Theory – Linkin Park

Which other Wellington musician (s) would you most like to work with?
A split with Coldxwar would be real cool

What is your favourite Wellington venue to play in?
Aro Valley Hall for sure, All Ages hardcore forever.

In your songwriting or composing (or the bandís songwriting) how do the compositions and songs take shape?
Ian: The first EP all the music was written by me and Fergus wrote the lyrics. After that we asked Jasper and Josh (Guitarist and Bassist) to join the band. Now the process is becoming more collaborative.

Where/when is your next gig?
Our next gig is up in Auckland playing at the penrose underground. You can find the event on facebook titled Auckland Will be Laid to Waste.
