RED DEAD is another cool band that I have recently discovered. Read what they have to say and then check them out further. Anders Ekdahl ©2018
When the band came into creation what was the main purpose for it?
-Hi!!! The main purpose it’s have our identity, created our songs and our universe.
How hard is it to come up with a sound that is all yours? What bits’n’pieces do you pick up from other stuff to make it your sound?
-With the feeling but we are in perpetually evolution with this. Nothing, our sound is totally raw we find with our feeling and a lot of time to listen to. We are not on the search for the best sound, but for an equality under the sound of our album and in live.
I have no idea what kind of creative process you guys go through but how hard is it to record and release new songs?
-The hard part is the time. And well work the songs before the recording, and after that listen and listen, but we are naysayer.
Today technology allows you to record at home and release your music digitally. But in doing so is there a risk that you release only single songs because that is what is demanded to stay atop and therefore you end up killing the album for example?
-Yes we can’t put online every songs because you kill the next album, Split, EP… But we play frequently new songs at our show, and when the people make movies and put on internet we can’t do anything, if the people it’s more interested by the band because of that it’s so much the better.
I for one feel that the change in how people listen to music today, by downloading it and expecting to get it for free, will kill music as we know it. What kind of future is there for music?
-The future of the music will not certainly be in a commercial purpose, but we are there to listen to the music not ruining itself. But it’is true for the bands it’s hard to stay, because we spend a lot to live our passion.
What kind of responses do you get to your music? What has been the thing that has gotten the most attention?
-Positive and sometimes negative, we think we are more estimated by the old metalheads who have not necessarily need to have a very modern sound to listen to. Most of the time we compare us with bands of the 90s.
We live in a world where there are no real distances between people communicating anymore. What has been the most surprising contact so far?
-Raphael of Great Dane Records. And some big bands very approachable, who are very interesting to discuss and to share with them. We had chance to play with norvegian, spanish and french bands and to have interviews with people like you or Brazilian magazine. Amazing returns !
Does playing in a band make you feel like you are a part of a greater community? What has music brought with it that you would have otherwise missed out on?
No not necessary. We like the sharing with people, beautiful meeting, good shows, creativity and sometimes a connection with us even.
What is the live scene like for you? Do you feel that playing live helps building a bigger following?
-Live scene it’s on the road with the people and other bands. Yes the live shows it’s an obvious fact for connect the band with the people in spite of the web plague.
What plans do you have for the future?
-More shows, more meetings on the road, and a next album.
