Q&A with ‘The Reset’

mandipaige (1)

Calling all metal fans! We caught up with the members of The Reset, a progressive/metal band out of Orlando, Fl founded in 2010. Six musicians coming from an array of musical styles and backgrounds, I recommend you give the band’s debut EP “Progenitor” a listen,  available at thereset.bandcamp.com. Band Q&A:

941839_503644556358130_328849178_n1.Who is ‘The Reset’? Steven McCorrey (Vocalist), Gabriel Montalvo (Guitarist), Ron Sword (guitarist), Derik (Bass player), Spencer Franke (Drummer), and Jeffrey Bobbin (guitarist)

 2.Could you tell us more about your band name?Ok, the name “The Reset” just caught my attention one moment as a good name for a progressive group. As I formed the band with that name in mind. It made sense for what this band was to become and in the name itself, We hope it opens for us an opportunity and the freedom for our band to really represent ourself if our sound  drifts away from our original material. We initially “Reset” ourselves to adapt to what we become as Musicians and as people. (Gabe)

3.When and Where did you decide to start this musical endeavor? The band started in Orlando, Florida as a one man project (Gabe) He wrote everything from the start and had a close friend do drums till He came across Spencer (who at the time was a co-worker with him), Steve came later I’m sure from some showcase event (Considering all of us are really into the same music style), Derik came as a reference from someone on the facebook band page when it started and he jumped onto the opportunity, and ron came from no where or in the depths that is the internet, and I was brought up through a friend and found interest in the group. (Jeff)

4.As a band who are your Major musical influences?– Incubus, Minus The Bear, and The Acacia Strain (Steven) -Matt Greiner, Eric Moore, Chris Adler, Matt Gartska, and Mario Duplantier (Spencer) -Fredrik Thordendal, Michael Keene, Ron Sword, JB Brubaker, and John Petrucci.  (Gabe, Jeff, and Ron) -Victor Wooten,  Fieldy, Evan Brewer, Marcus Miller, Justin Chancellor, and Dave LaRue. (Derik)

5.How would you describe your sound? I could simply say that it’s simply metal as f@#$ but if you want to get into details. We get a touch of everything and anything we want. You will definitely hear djenty, Proggy, crushing, Thall, Spastic, ambient, shreddy, and bouncy as a interpretation of what we sound like from the feedback we have received from our listeners. (Gabe)

6. Do you have a favorite Fl venue to perform in?We have many that would include House of Blues, The Ritz, The Social, Backbooth, The 321 Local, Jack Rabbits Live, and The Haven Lounge. (Derik)

7. In 2 word’s describe your musical style?Progressive metal (Ron)

8.What’s the last song you downloaded to your playlist?The Migration Album from Scale The Summit. Phenominal! (Derik) Rescue and Restore- August Burns Red (Gabe & Spencer)

9.Have any word’s you would like to tell all our reader’s?After checking out our single “Metacognition”, make sure to keep up with us on our Facebook page for the release of our album “Chasing Infinity”. Honestly, as a band we are not prepared for what it holds and what kind of impact it will have on its listeners. (Steve)
