I know very little about the Spanish metal scene. They seem to keep much to themselves, singing in Spanish most of the time. But every now and then I get in touch with a band or two. Like with DEATH & LEGACY. Anders Ekdahl ©2017
Was it hard to come up with a name? What does the name mean to you? How important is it to have the right name?
-It really was easy … our lyrics speak of death, future, past … For us is a very important name because it represents us a lot
Who would say have laid the foundation for the kind of sound you have? Who are your heroes musically and what have they meant to you personally and to the sound of your band?
-We have come a long way in the search for our sound and we are very happy with the result in “SILENCE”. There are many reference bands, such as Arch Enemy, In Flames, Machine Head, Trivium, etc …
When you play slow do you have to think differently arranging the music than if you play faster and vice versa?
-Yes, we like to play with the sensations. Sometimes something slow needs a growl to be more heavy, something melodic in a fast riff, drums crossed to give anxiety … We are always looking for that double game
Will your music work in a live environment? What kind of stage environment would best suit your music; a big stage or a small club?
-We love to play, it does not matter the type of stage, everyone has something magic. It is great to see many metalhead but in a small club you can feel them very close, meet them in person, and it’s great too. Our music is to live it, no matter where.
Everybody seems to be disappointed with something once they have released a recording. What would you have liked done differently the last time around?
-Really? nothing. Always on each album we give the best of us at that time, it is 100% sincere, honest.
Is it hard to reach out to all those that might be interested in your music? What alleys have you used to get people familiarized with your band?
-It is very difficult especially when you are from a small town, like us, from Zamora, Spain. But it is the magic of the network! Many emails, digital platforms, official web, facebook, youtube … I suppose like any band in the world.
What to you is a great front cover? What should a cover have to make it great?
-Thank you very much, for us it really is. Mainly, do not let you indifferent, that surprises you and attracts you … makes you think: “that holds something good”
Do you feel that you are part of a national scene? What is the climate for music in your country?
-I think we are getting it step by step, but the road is very long. There are many bands of huge quality, I think every time they make things better. You just have to lose your fear and believe in yourself.
How do one promote oneself the best possible way?
-Working hard, every day. Always. Believe in yourself and take advantage of opportunities … and a little luck is always good.
What does the future hold?
-I hope many adventures. A great tour in 2017, meet many people … to continue with this dream come true.
