Interviews: Sublevel

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore/Death Metal band Sublevel, from Germany. Check out this band because they are amazing and do not forget to follow them in their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?  


The Sublevel method originally is a mining technique, but the concept of dwelling in layers between others has its metaphorical appeal to us.Apart from that we're from an area that wouldn't exist without mining and we ourselves are pretty underground. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Sebastian: Everyone in the band has their own musical background and so we naturally implement different styles. It's hard to settle for any particular genre other than 'heavy stuff'. Wait for our upcoming EP and you will see! 

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?  

Sebastian: The core of our band (Marvin, Sebastian) survived from a local metalcore formation. After breaking up, we went with the times and started looking for new members online. And it worked more than well - as the first guy to audition each, Martin and Dominik were instantly part of the brotherhood. We knew our bass man Chris from other bands before, but only asked him to come round when we found his notice online. We didn't think we'd be so lucky with finding new bandmates via the interweb! 

4. Each band member favourite band?  

Sebastian: All-time: System of a Down, current: absvrdist 

Dominik: Iron Maiden 

Martin: Changes over time but an all-time favorite is Shadows Fall. 

Marvin: Machine Head & Life of Agony 

Chris: Architects and War from a Harlots Mouth 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?  

Martin: Influence from other bands of course or being able to play a new technique and wanting to try it. Sebastian: Heartache and substance abuse 

6. Where was your last gig?  

Dominik: Recklinghausen, a small city in the Ruhr Area in Germany.  

7. Where would you like to act?  

Sebastian: Playing different places outside our home area would literally be a blast! 

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Sebastian: GWAR Dominik: The Black Dahlia Murder 

9. Whom not?  

Sebastian: Well, GWAR. 

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?  

Dominik: I think all of us are nervous at one point or the other, but my level of excitement is usually higher than my fear, so I just get up there and try to rock as hard as possible. 

Sebastian: I think everybody's been there. Try to focus on whatever made you play music in the first place, try having fun either way and DON'T try to drown your fears in alcohol or other substances! 

11. What bands have inspired you the most?  

Dominik: That's a tough one. There's so many bands I'd like to name, but recently I'd say Job For A Cowboy with their album Sun Eater or Fallujah with their latest record. Also TBDM with every album ever. 

Martin: Slipknot and Shadows Fall made me want to play double bass. Japanische Kampfhörspiele made me want to learn blast beats. Despised Icon and Beneath the Massacre made me want to become some sick technical death drummer - guess I'm still working on that. 12. A guy at our 2nd gig asked the whole band to sign a stick. That was weird. But maybe we'll be famous in a bit and he can sell that stick for a couple of hundred bucks on ebay, so who am I to judge? 

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?  

Dominik: We were asked to sign a drum stick at our second gig. That was a weird experience. But maybe we'll be famous in a bit and he can sell that stick for a couple of hundred bucks on ebay, so who am I to judge? 

13. What do you think of your fans?  

Sebastian: The two most dedicated people in the entire world. Martin: 200 fans can't be wrong. 

14. What do you think of our site?

Dominik: It's great idea to promote smaller bands, which we are doing with this interview, so naturally I love the concept. It's hard to get noticed out there and get out of your city, so any promotion is greatly appreciated. 

15. Something to add?

Sebastian: Support your local blast dealers!
