Hello everyone DJ Dizzy here & I recently interviewed a band hailing from Finland who had a lot to say regarding their success & their origins so enjoy!
"1 How'd you get started in music?
We started this journey in 2006 with Ilari and Nuutti in Hamina,
Finland. Nuutti, Ilari and I were studying in same music school, so one
night we decided to start a band. We had a goal to make something new
and fresh but at the same time aggressive music. It was hard at first
but we were hard working guys and we got through that face. At that time
we were looking for a bass player and fortunately Janne’s brother Juha
was interested to play with us. For a little while we tried to find
singer to our band but because there wasn’t any good options we decided
that Juha start’s to growl. That was the case first but after our first
release Janne started to sing the clean vocals.
2 Who are your inspirations or influences?
Nuutti’s biggest influences are: Porcupine tree, Soilwork, Devin
Townsend, John Coltrane, Gojira and Rubik.
Juha’s favorite artist’s are: Pantera, Sentenced, Megadeth, Queen and
Janne’s are: Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Gojira, Messhuggah,
Opeth, Miles Davis, David Bowie and Metallica.
Ilari’s infulences are: Kamelot, Virgin steel, Hans Zimmer, Chvurches,
Dream theather and Joe Hisaishi.
3 What advice would offer aspiring performers?
Be yourself, no matter what. People will notice the pretenders sooner or
later. We do our music in our own way, and we do not want to make music
that someone else has already done. Be creative and hard to work for
4 How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
I think that we have our own sound, which distinguishes us from the
other mass positively. Every player and singer sounds himself. And we
are letting the influences go beyond the genre limits, so it can not be
heard in our music. Sure if it is puritanical about music, it is
difficult to hear these phenomena. Everyone is listening to music
regardless of genre. Keyboards is in the bigger role than usually in the
5 Any new gigs or albums in the future?
Yes, we have a Baltic tour on february 2019 and maybe a big news about
the new upcoming album."
Special thanks to them for doing this interview & I wish them nothing but luck in their careers.
So with that I'll catch you on the flipside!
Stay awesome & rock n roll!
