What does the meeting of six individuals result in? in this case it resulted in TALESIEN. A band that I’ve just discovered and want to know more about. Anders Ekdahl ©2016
You have one of these names that does not really tell what kind of metal you play. How hard was it to come up with the name?
-Yes you are right!!! but this is not our way to say people what we are doing; in other words we don’t think too much on this matter when the band comes up. Eventually when you start to play, it needs to spread some info, photos, bio etc.,,and everyone knows or at least have an idea about your style and the music you play.
Could you give us a short introduction to the band?
-Band is composed by six friends that work so so hard, and believe on what they are doing, even though at this time it’s really difficult to hold and going on specially in this country playing such a style!!! All I can say is: we love music, and we love metal!!! and also we are a band which appreciate the direct contact with our friends and fans, playing on live and also meet with them at every venue!!!
What would you say have been the single greatest influence on your sound?
-Really hard to say, maybe the mixture of our influences put it in common!! we are six people with different ages (there is a generation gap eventually between us) and of course different points of view!!!
‘What is the scene like in your area? Do you feel that you are a part of a sce
-Simply there are a lor of bands working hard, but people for me; doesn’t appreciate enough this “local efforts”!!! they usually prefer foreing bands. but maybe is our fault!!! who knows!!
Something I have often wondered about is if you feel that you are part of something bigger and greater when you play in a band, that you are part of a movement sort of?
-Absolutely not!! not for me. We are people enjoying and playing something called music together. That’s all!!! trying to have a good time. Nothing else
When you play the sort of music you play I guess you cannot have birds and bees on the cover of your album? What is a great album cover to you?
-I’d really like to know it, maybe one day we get it!!!
What is your opinion on digital versus physical? Is digital killing music?
-Not at all!! you must to take advantage of this; the world is in constant motion, you can’t stop it. But it’s also true that music’s changed due to this digital evolution. But for me the great thing, the most important thing is to play live music. So finally music is music, no matter the way that came into you. market is a different matter and I think is really affected by this!! you know what I mean?
What kind live scene is there for bands like yours?
-That one you can create here. You have to work in this sense too, because in Galicia, I think there is no the right knowledge and attention to this particulary kind of metal, considering that we have in this region, one of the most important metal festivals in spain (Resurrection fest in Viveiro not too far) but is most likely focused in extreme metal music.
When you play live is it a happening or do you see it more as a party?
-Of course is a party, but in order to have a party and above all, enjoy with our own concerts, we think that we need to play an to perform, as a professionals. So it’s something that we consider almost as a job. In my opinion That’s the way to really have a god time playing. Respect of we are doing.
What would you like to see the future bring?
-Thousands of concerts full of people enjoying and singing our songs!! for sure. and earn a bit of money 😉 why not?
