HOW DO YOUR FANS DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC?
I guess one word that really came up was 'Energetic''
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEO AND WHY?
So far we only have one proper Music Video and it is called ''Carnival World''. We love it because it's been an idea from over a year ago and we finally managed to do exactly what we imagined. Also having the perk of seeing yourself as cartoons is something special.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT WITH YOUR FANS?
We love as the mosh pit hits. It gives our gigs a massive metal vibe and makes us want to rock twice as hard on stage.
WHAT BANDS INFLUENCED YOUR STYLE OF MUSIC?
We love a lot of different metal bands but our main influences are Bullet for My Valentine, Trivium and Killswitch Engage.
WHAT BRAND INTERMENTS DO YOU USE?
We use a lot of different brands of instruments unfortunately there are too many instruments to list.
HAVE YOU CHANGED ANY MEMBER’S SCIENCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
We changed every member in the lineup other than the vocals.
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BAND NAME AND LOGO?
The band name has to do with the history of the band, having a lot of lineup changes and a lot of reasons in giving up. Decline The Fall came up as an encouragement to keep going.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BAND SOUND IN THE FUTURE, ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SIMILAR SOUND OR ARE YOU GOING TO GO IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION?
We're working with a new guitarist for this album and we already noticed big changes in our songs.
This album is going to be heavier for sure!
TELL US A RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOURSELF THAT FANS DON’T KNOW?
When the band was first formed the band was named ''Saint Nothing'' before the line up changes were made.
WHO WRITES THE MUSIC IN YOUR BAND OR DO YOU ALL WRITE IT TOGETHER?
We do it all together most of the time.
COULD YOU BRIEFLY DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC MAKING PROCESS?
Most of the time we meet at the garage, one of the guitarists comes up with a new cool riff and we build on it.
DO YOU EVER CHANGE YOUR LYRICS DURING LIVE SET?
Haha, our vocalist actually added lyrics the first time we went on stage but it sounded cool and we kept the song like that.
WHAT SUBJECTS DO YOU SIGN ABOUT IN YOUR MUSIC?
Our lyrics are mostly based on negative news; there are a lot of bad things going on in the world today.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY BAND, PERFORMING YOUR SONGS, WHICH WOULD IT BE AND WOULD IT BE IN YOUR STYLE OR THEIRS?
Bullet for my Valentine in whatever style they want ! haha
HOW WAS IT PLAYING YOUR FIRST LIVE GIG?AND HOW DID YOU BOOK IT?
It was an amazing experience especially for our vocalist as it was his first time ever live.
We spoke to event organizers - Rejects.com.mt and they organized it for us.
AS WE ARE PROMOTING YOUR BAND, IS THERE ANYTHING COMING UP LIKE ALBUM LAUNCHES OR TOUR DATES YOU WOULD LIKE US TO PROMOTE ON OUR SITE FOR YOU?
We have a lot of gigs coming up here in Malta but nothing to be released yet. We're working on the new album and hoping to finish it by the end of this year.
