Intervals – Live at Underworld – July 11th, 2013 – Montreal, Quebec

A night of metalcore and prog rock, Intervals played fourth of the five bands playing. It was my first time seeing them. They started out with a heavy instrumental jam which completely blew me away.  Aaron’s guitar solos were out of this world and the look on his face was priceless— He was smiling like a rock star and really feeling the music.

As the set continued, I realized this was an instrumental progressive/metal band which surprised me as I don’t get to see something like this very often and it’s anoriginal concept. Aaron takes a lot of pride in his guitar playing. There are quite a few “Pink Floyd” elements in their music. A few songs started off with synths and pretty melodies followed by heavy guitar riffs.

I watched the crowd’s reaction and it seemed like people were as mesmerized as I was.  There were moments where everything around me faded away and I was completely focused on the music. I caught myself closing my eyes a few times, almostfalling into a dream-like state.

Aaron mentioned how much they love Montreal and was pleased to be back in the city. The band rocked out insimple T-shirts and jean shorts. Aaron has the stretched lobes going on. Total babes.

Toronto- based Intervals is known for taking their listeners through a journey of soundscapes. After listening to their EP, I really feel I fell into a trance. This band has talent worth listening to and I am glad I got to see them play Underworld. The band played along with Camalus, The Kindred, Amongst Heroes, The Color Morale, and Misery Signals. The band is a four-piece consisting of Aaron who is the lead guitarist, Lukas on rhythm guitar,  Anup on drums, and Mike on bass.

The beer was cheap and the cover was only twenty dollars for this huge event.
