Eyes Set To Kill - Exciting Juxtapositions
Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Upon first glance Eyes Set To Kill is an exercise in juxtapositions. When most people think of bands that are classified as screamo, or metalcore, the image is one that’s filled almost entirely with testosterone, but Eyes Set To Kill’s screamo sound has a decidedly female backbone with Alexia Rodriguez, who is a vocalist and plays the guitar and keyboards, and her sister Anissa, who plays the bass. The intense sound they create with guitarist Greg Kerwin, drummer Caleb Clifton, and new screamer / keyboardist Cisko Miranda, has given them a unique spot in not just the screamo scene, but the music scene overall.

Then there’s their label situation. They’re on Break Silence Recordings, which is a label that was created specifically for them by Suburban Noize Records, a rap-rock outfit known most for being the home to acts such as Kottonmouth Kings.

Being different, however, has proven to be a very good thing for Eyes Set To Kill as the band has become a force on the rock scene. They’ve hosted Headbanger’s Ball, were listed in Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need To Know feature in 2009, they’re on the cover of issue #54 of Outburn, and they’ve been drawing huge crowds throughout the country on this year’s Warped Tour.

I caught up with the band before a show and found out more about their juxtapositions, how they’ve worked out perfectly for them, and the t-shirt they almost had to make for Cisko Miranda.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
