Metalcore band Between Empty Vessels release new EP make it free download [Philippines].
“Between Empty Vessels started out as Mikel Aragoncillo’s solo project during the later part of 2016. The purpose of this solo Ep is for him to test his skills as a musician and a producer. Initially, the concept was to make an instrumental EP. However, it turned out that an instrumental EP was not his cup of tea.
During the first stages of the EP. He sought the help of Maxwell Maduli (Vocalist of Signals in the Sky) to do vocals for the said EP. Unfortunately it did not panned out as expected due to schedule conflicts.
Luckily, with the help from friends and other people. They referred Aries Villasis (Vocalist of Analie) to do vocals and they discussed how the EP would go. They have agreed that it would be a Post-Hardcore/Emo project.
Both immediately connected in terms of musicalities and influences they are long time influenced by genres from Post-Hardcore. Melodic Hardcore, Metalcore, Pop-Punk, Emo. To name a few in no particular order “AURAS, In Hearts Wake, ERRA, Counterparts, Being As an Ocean, Seasons in Wreckage, Vacant Home, Napoleon, Polaris, Dayseeker, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends, Belmont, State Champs, The Story So Far, CROOKS UK.”
Between Empty Vessels emerged as a Post Hardcore / Emo project. Mikel & Aries saw the animosity beyond reason of people wanting to express the values of life and understanding our purpose. They believe “Dying is a cycle that never ends, We should die with memories, not dreams.”
Basically to know how they got started. Let me introduce them to you.
“Mikel Aragoncillo”, Sounds like a character in LOTR! Basically a Hipster-friendly band enthusiast. Hardcore music specialist. Music maven and Dictator. From Signals In The Sky to his present band I Fall, I Rise his passion for music is astonishing and impressive. He plays as if its his last day on earth. He is the epitome of being a DICTATOR but in a very good and unorthodox way. Now when I say dictator. You’ll never know what I mean until you ask Kei (Bassist of I Fall, I Rise).
Aries Villasis, For him life isn’t about waiting for the storm to end. It’s about learning to dance in the rain! He learned that from mistakes of others who take his advise, He learned he doesn’t know anything. He also learned that people will pay for what he knows. To him, “Life is good and witty but we’re actually here to make an impact in your lives and that your life is worth living.”
There’s this saying. ”All of us are able to perceive or feel things.” Mikel and Aries decided to have SENTIENT as the perfect title for the Extended Play .
They believe, “The mind and heart is full of emotions that they do not understand. We reach for the stars and not the skies. The distance can be far apart but we find the reasons why we breathe and why we live.”
Everything has it’s purpose maybe Between Empty Vessels was created by choice and not by fate. Its time to break the cycle. We didn’t change, We just woke up.”
