HOW DO YOUR FANS DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC?

When we talk to our fans after a show the majority says that when they listen to our music they block out everything around them and enjoy the moment. They describe the music as very powerful and melodic. Most of them like the difference between our melodic refrains, riff heavy parts and powerful rhythmic breakdowns.

 

WHAT’S YOUR CRAZIEST FAN STORY?

One time we played in Frankfurt Oder (a small town near to the border to Poland) and a friendly mid-40 housewife had a little to much to drink and went crazy during our show. She headbanged really hard and started a moshpit ourself

 

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT WITH YOUR FANS?

We enjoy every single moment after a long show with them. It’s an incredible feeling to get face to face with our fans who are equally exhausted as we are and to listen to how they have experienced the show.

 

 

IF YOU COULD PICK ANY MUSIC FESTIVAL TO PERFORM AT (IN THE WORLD), WHAT MUSIC FESTIVAL WOULD YOU PICK AND WHY? 

 

Wacken, of course - it's in our roots! Apart from that, we'd love to play around the world, introduce our music to people, connect with them, get to know their culture, absorb the power of diversity and let it influence us.

 

 

 

WHAT BANDS INFLUENCED YOUR STYLE OF MUSIC?

For our first EP ‘Vein of Origin’ we were influenced by bands such as August Burns Red, Breakdown of Sanity and Bleed From Within. 

For our upcoming first full length album our influences slightly changed because as a musician you constantly get new inspiration and so we opened our minds to other music genres and bands.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CONCERT MEMORY?

The biggest Rowboat we’ve ever seen.

HOW DID YOUR BAND FORM? AND HOW DID YOU DECIDE WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC YOU WERE GOING TO PLAY?

Everyone knew each other before. We were working on different projects at the time, before deciding to come together and form Tides Awaking.

 

It's an interesting, multifaceted genre of music, that's quite challenging to play. It's something that certainly helps us grow as musicians. We saw it is an opportunity to point out social and political problems of the society we are living in. Also, being part of the metal community is great. The bonds between people are strong.

 

HAVE YOU CHANGED ANY MEMBER’S SCIENCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

So far we only had to change our bassist. But the constellation of the four of us (Patrick, Robin, José, Denis) has never changed.

 

COULD YOU BRIEFLY DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC MAKING PROCESS?

That’s our little secret ;-).

 

WHO WRITES THE MUSIC IN YOUR BAND OR DO YOU ALL WRITE IT TOGETHER?

Patrick and Robin are the major songwriters but it’s very important to us that every band member brings in their own ideas and that we all decide how the final song arrangements are set up.

WHAT SUBJECTS DO YOU WRITE ABOUT IN YOUR MUSIC?

It's very important for us that people find bits of and for themselves in our music; something that would inspire them to make a change, even if a small one. We would love to leave something behind that would live forever, and hopefully inspire the next generation of musicians, as we are inspired by all the great bands out there.

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 already going in a different direction with our first album. But no-one knows what the futures holds…
