It’s been a minute, but the hosts of Eclectic Soundtrax are BACK with the latest podcast, chatting with members of the San Antonio-based rock band, All Stories End. AES music is a culmination of their diverse influences, explosive with high-energy guitar and drums, but also an impressive vocal range and command from singer, multi-instrumentalist and music teacher Chris Purcell. After only a short time from their inception in 2017, the band released their debut album, The Architecture of Sound in 2018, which included their first single, “Let the Devil Play”.
Minus an obvious and unfortunate global setback, they’ve been performing consistently ever since.
After a steady stream of singles — including their most recent song, “Taurus” — the band did a 2022 Texas tour. This podcast takes listeners back to the band’s origins (a distant two years ago) and is an account full of laughs, ranting and overly opinionated views on other bands, etc. Some are good, some not so much… but, we had a blast talking with some seriously cool guys who are all about creating music and having fun onstage. All Stories End are a current staple of the San Antonio rock and metal scene, carrying on a tradition in the country’s most metal city! \m/
About the podcasters
Skunk is a musician, primarily known as the frontman and guitarist for eclectic heavy-rock band A Good Rogering. Since moving to Austin in 2004, he has recorded and performed with a wide variety of bands and solo artists over a career spanning more than 20 years and has shared the stage with notable acts, such as Skid Row, Marty Friedman, Uli Jon Roth, George Lynch and Metal Church among others. Skunk not only works as a performing musician and recording artist, but also as a producer and music teacher. With two decades of insight into what it means to be a professional musician and a passion for not only music, but comedy and general chatter, Skunk was quick to jump at the opportunity to co-host a podcast with longtime friend, Victor Ramos.
A Texas native, Victor’s early musical influences are a mixture of classic rock albums played by his Vietnam vet father and a whole lot of ‘the Fab Four’ via his Beatles-loving mother. Sprinkle in some classic country and Motown, and you have a man that would say “¿que?” when other Tejanos would ask what his favorite cumbia was. After a stint in the Marines, Victor moved to Austin in 2000 and began working in the tech industry. He met Skunk in a Spanish class in 2005 and the two discovered a shared passion for not only beer, but music. After years of collectively attending concerts and talking music, the idea to start a podcast centering around such topics seemed like a logical endeavor.
