Intense guitar shredding, creative drum beats and fills, rock solid bottom end with soulful vocals with screams when the lyrical depth requires make up the sound that is Within The Fury.

Within The Fury formed in 2015. After a couple years of playing and adjusting their sound they finalized the line-up. They blend their diverse influences to create a unique sound; a mix of rock inspired metal with a touch of melodic clean melodies.​

Adam Ferdinandi - Guitar

When did you start playing guitar?

 

I started playing guitar when I was about 14 or 15. My sister was taking guitar lessons at the time so I would pick her guitar up from time to time. Was a cheap Ibanez with a Floyd Rose bridge that never stayed in tune (not that I knew what I was doing at the time anyways hah)

 

Why did you choose guitar?

 

A couple of friends and I were tobogganing and while sitting on the side of the hill talking, one had mention his brother had a bass he wasn't using, so I said my sister has a spare guitar, which stuck our last friend to buy drums haha

Word of advice for someone learning guitar?

 

1. Practice.

2. If something's not working, stop and come back to it later.

3. Record everything, riffs, chord progressions, leads. Gives you a bank to come back too.

4. Always tweak your tone, even the pro's are constantly searching.

Dennis Noonan - Vocals

 

When did you start singing?

 

When I was about 2 sort of. I had speech problems when I was young and it was more I tried to sing at a young age as I really liked music, but was embarrassed to sing in front of people. I would say I was about 16 when I found out, kind of by accident, that I had a singing voice and it really took off from there.

 

Why did you choose vocals?

 

It chose me… pretty much. I started just playing guitar until I found out I could sing.

 

What are some of your biggest influences on your singing?

 

Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, Thom York of Radiohead, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Phil Anselmo of Pantera… to name a few.

 

What are your 3 favorite albums of all time?

Wow! Really more than 3 come to mind, but here it goes. Pink Floyd - Darkside of the Moon, Tool - Aenima, Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power

 

What are your 3 favorite albums released after 2015?

 

I'm lame and haven't really spent time trying to fall in love with newer music, maybe focusing on my own craft has stunted that, among other things, but I do like the new Rise Against album - Wolves.

 

Can you play any other instruments?

 

Yeah, I can play guitar and bass guitar decently. I used to play the Alto Sax in junior high, and could keep a good beat on the drums in a band shortly after highschool, but don't ask me to try play those now.

 

Word of advice for someone learning to sing?

 

Really focus on your tone going along with the music and just don't hold back when your starting out. Don't try to do too much, but you have to just belt it out. Don't feel embarrassed if you don't hit every note at first, It'll come. You just have to have fun with it and figure it out slowly, don't focus on more technical stuff until later, you can phych yourself out if worry about that stuff too early.

Ryan Carreau - Drums

When did you start playing drums?

 

When I was about 13 or 14 years old I got my first job as a bag boy at a grocery store. On my very first paycheque I was on my way home from work and had stopped by my friend's place and he was playing his drum set. I was really impressed and wanted to try them out so I did he said I'll sell them to you. So I used the money for my first paycheck to buy a drum set. From then on I just played as much as I could.

 

Why did you choose drums?

 

The first instrument I ever picked up was actually the guitar. Being a left-handed person a guitar was hard to come by so I strung up a right handed guitar Lefty. I still play guitar today and enjoy it whenever I can't play drums. But the day I bought my drum set was the day I found my true calling and realized drums felt more natural and fun to play. I also found out that it helped a lot with my over-excitement and aggression issues. Let's just say the drums have kept me out of a lot of trouble growing up. Haven't looked back since.

 

What are some of your biggest influences on your drums?

 

Growing up I was never really good with names so I never really learned too many of the drummer's that inspired me but I have to give a shout out to a few. I have to give a shout out to Lars Ulrich  of Metallica because when I first started I was a big Metallica fan so I started learning Metallica beats right away . Another big influence was Moe Carlson the drummer for Protest the Hero in the beginning really inspired me as I had no idea that things like that could be done on a drum kit. Growing up on a lot of punk music I also looked up to Great drummers like Jordan burns from strung out. I Also studied drummers like Mike Portnoy and Neil Peart. Lately I've really been admiring the work of Chris Adler as well as the new drummer for Protest the Hero Mike Lerardi. There are many more who have influenced me but those are the main ones who have inspired me through different stages of drumming.

 

What are your 3 favorite albums of all time?

 

This is tough to try and pick 3 favorite albums of all time so I'm going to have to give some love to the punk and metal side of myself and go with ;

 

  1. Twisted by Design from strung out.

  2. Volition by Protest the Hero

  3. Kill ‘Em All by Metallica

What are your 3 favorite albums released after 2015?

  1. The sin and the sentence by Trivium

  2. Incarnate by Killswitch Engage

  3. Pacific myth by Protest The Hero

 

Can you play any other instruments?

 

Yes, I play guitar and can play a few mean licks on the bass.

 

Word of advice for someone learning drums?

 

I myself did not go to school for drums. The path I took was to buy a drum set and I started studying my favorite songs and breaking down the drums and learning them. I know it's cliche to say but just like most drummers would say it's all about how much time you put into it. So practice practice practice, but don't ever stop analyzing your favorite drummers and breaking everything down. Also the one mistake I did was ignoring rudiments but I eventually hit a wall and rudiments were the answer to effectively get to the next level . so as much as we would like to overlook the rudiments, don't. Start your rudiments early and keep doing it. I went as far as keeping a pair of drumsticks in my work van a pair in the bathroom and a pair in the living room.

Ryan Mattis - Bass

 

When did you start playing bass?

I was about 13 when I started playing a bass. I was always in love with the instrument and the bands I loved I gravitated to the bass player. Prior to that a neighbour in our apartment building had a bass and I would hang with him and he would show me some licks on the bass. My mom got me an El Degas 3/4 size bass with a practice amp from Mr. Entertainment and the Appetite For Destruction bass book. 

Why did you choose bass?

The bass just seemed like a cooler instrument. The bands I loved (and still do) I just gravitated to the bass player. Guys like Nikki Sixx, Duff McKagan, Rachel Bolan just seemed to be the coolest guys in their bands. Funny enough at the time I didn't really hear the bass in the songs (well I did but couldn't identify the instrument) but it seemed like a cool instrument. As I learned the instrument I fell in love with the sound and how it was both the rhythm and melody of a song. 

What are some of your biggest influences on your bass playing?

As mentioned guys like Nikki Sixx, Duff McKagan, Rachel Bolan. Early KISS was huge, the way Gene played more walking type bass lines. Music from the 50s was a huge influence as I was learning to play. Duff McKagan was and is my biggest influence. I love his tone and how he plays bass lines that groove with killer fills. He always finds a way to be locked in with the drummer and his fills follow the drums. Love how his fills will follow the tom hits. It just creates a tight sound.

What are your 3 favorite albums of all time?

Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction

Mötley Crüe - Too Fast For Love

Mötley Crüe - Mötley Crüe

What are your 3 favorite albums released after 2015?

Diamonds - Never Wanna Die

Chris Stapleton - Traveller

Sixx: A.M. - Prayers For The Damned

Can you play any other instruments?

I can play guitar, in high school they had a class for beginner guitar, so I took it for 3 credits and got to learn to play. Drums I can keep a basic beat but no fills lol. Very AC/DC drum style.

Word of advice for someone learning bass?

Practice Practice Practice lol. Just play and enjoy the instrument. Listen to as much music as you can (even music you are not a fan of) and absorb the bass. Listen to what players are playing and how they affect the feel f the song. The bass is a powerful instrument in any band. Depending on what the bass player plays the entire feel of the song can change. Bass doesn't need to be flashy but it needs to fit the music. An example I use is Cliff Williams get ragged on because AC/DC bass lines are so simplistic but any other type of bass line would not work in their songs, if Les Claypool were to play bass in AC/DC with his style AC/DC would sound completely different. It is challenging to lay down a great groove in the pocket. The bass should make people move. A great bass line is felt not heard. And lastly do what feels and sounds right to you, find your style.
