Fusing traditional orchestral sound with modern electronic elements into an aggressive rock/metal mix, Sentinel Complex has truly captured the sound of the singularity to come. With their work featured in both film and video game media, Sentinel Complex aims to break down the walls and bring together all forms of media into one shared universe.
MR: Introduce yourself in 6 words or less.
SC: Cyberpunk-metal for the forward-thinking.
MR: During the Covid-19 Quarantine, a lot of people spent time doing things they normally wouldn’t have done…did you pick up any new hobbies or learn any new skills?
SC: Honestly for us we have just had a lot of time to really try going down a few different musical avenues and learn new techniques and ways of working. However outside of music it’s been fun, Josh has taken Warhammer back up and Jamie has raised his first clutch of baby snakes
so it’s been interesting!
MR: What do you miss the most about touring?
SC: Currently we aren’t a touring act, however we both love shows and really miss being a part of them! The best thing about shows to us is just the fact that there’s loads of people from all walks of life which are coming together to enjoy something, so it’s probably that.
MR: Do you have any Post-Quarantine plans?
SC: Post-quarantine for us is probably going to be a case of release everything we’ve been working on! There’s a lot of people we haven’t been able to see for a while either too. Oh and shows! Lots of shows to go to.
MR: Whats one personal item you absolutely can not tour without?
SC: Since we are only a studio band currently, we haven’t been on tour yet so we don’t really know! We do have a few items in the studio which have been with us basically since day one though, like our black and white skulls and various sci-fi and horror themed action figures!
MR: What are the Top 3 artists you are inspired by?
SC: For us it would probably have to be Fear Factory, Swarm, and Hans Zimmer. Pretty much all of our styles covered there by those three!
MR: Any words of wisdom for someone who may draw their inspiration from you?
SC: Don’t be afraid to try something new. If there are rules, break them. Otherwise nothing will ever move forward, so don’t be afraid to do something a bit off the wall!
