Miluski has had one hell of a time distancing herself from GUANO APES singer and countrywoman Sandra Nasic. She’s been getting the comparisons to the rock veteran almost since Day 1 in spite of the fact Miluski’s delivery is straight out of the PANTERA box a lot of time, and the band’s music is far more volatile than the Apes’ pop rock anthem sensibilities. Miluski does indeed have moments where she sounds like Nasic, however, which is a good thing in the end. Add to this a generous helping of veteran Canadian rocker Sass Jordan‘s smokey blues in her throat and Miluski is in excellent company.
Miluski: “I’ve been compared to Sandra many, many times and to be honest, in the beginning I was a bit annoyed because, like you said, our music has nothing in common with Guano Apes. But I do respect her as a vocalist, and I think they’re a good and very successful band with a lot of influence on heavy female fronted music. It could be worse when you get compared to a band (laughs). Most of the general response by people at our live shows is that we are getting compared with Pantera meets Guano Apes, with a hint of bands like ARCH ENEMY. For me personally, a comparison to people like Phil Anselmo is just amazing, as he is one of my main influences in music. I’ve never listened to many female fronted bands, except MANHOLE, which was the first female fronted band I saw live. Tairrie B Murphy (vocalist) still impresses me with MY RUIN, but I grew up with the male dominated grunge and old school metal scene. In general we don’t care about differences between the gender in music and how we can get compared to other bands. We just do what we do and we are who we are.”
