Members Paul Anthony (guitars), Nick Phoebus Ntounis (Drums), Nick Harney (bass) and Dave Vincent Bowman (Vocals). Mescina record and publish their own material from Guerrilla Studios in Manchester.
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We don't aim to sound like anything or anyone in particular things just come out the way they happen and because we're lucky enough to have our own studio we can record what happens. Usually very raw and natural sounding. If anything we aim for a natural sound, in particular with regards to production techniques. So many records these days sound dead and lifeless with everything recorded in isolation. We record mostly live, so our record sounds real. Drums should sound how they sound in the room and you should be able to feel the band playing off each other.
