Byzantine

Byzantine

In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week, Byzantine gives us the scoop on Charleston, WV. Byzantine will be playing CMJ 2013; catch them at the Metal Insider Showcase on Wednesday October 16, 2013 at Europa.


The metal scene in WV is a constant ebb and flow. Due to geographic distances between bigger cities, its always been a constant struggle to maintain a music scene. On the flip side, that isolation has helped spark a creativity rarely seen in more populated areas. There are some bands here that are very original, and we are treated to very intimate performances. Being isolated has helped us create a sound that’s unique and helped us land some very important gigs outside our home state, such as the CMJ Metal Insider showcase. This is a show we are seriously pumped for. We are coming to throw it down.
