In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band Burning The Waves, from Spain. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.
1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
We all live on the coast and we wanted a name to represent it, so after a while of thinking about it, we got 2 names which we liked, but didn’t really convince us. I don’t remember the names, but they were something like "Burning The Forsaken Horizon” and "Waves of Poseidon", so we just put them together.
2. Why did you want to play this genre?
We play Metalcore because it is our favorite genere and we grew up listening to it. In our new album we follow other sources like deathcore and progressive.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
The drummer (Dabi) and the singer (Julen) formed the band. Some time after that, the bass (Dan), who we already know, joind the band. Sometime later, after the release of our first EP, we met Alejandro, our guitar.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Dabi (drums): As I Lay Dying
Alejandro (guitar): August Burns Red
Dan (bass): Amon Amarth
Julen (voice): Parkway Drive
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
Sometimes I’m walking down the street and some things I want to say just come to my mind, or maybe I’m at the computer and I just write what I think. I like to see how other bands do it, like Parkway Drive or the old and good Bring Me The Horizon.
6. Where was your last gig?
At Sala Edaska, in Barakaldo, where we are going to come back soon.
7. Where would you like to act?
There are lots of places, some big Spanish cities, or anywhere around the world. We have a little dream of playing at the Resurrection Fest, where we go every year. We want to see the crowd from the stage one day.
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
There are so many that it’s really hard to choose. I don’t know, some of this bands like Architects or maybe Whitechapel. Some national bands too would be cool.
9. Whom not?
ABBA. Just kidding, We can’t think in a band which we wouldnt play with.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
Not really. We feel nervous before every gig, but once we are on stage everything dissapears. A tip we could give... Just have fun and do your best to make everyone enjoy it, and maybe, even ask for a Wall of Death or a Circle Pit, that always helps!
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
Our first EP was inspired by the big Metalcore bands and the sea. But now we are recording our first Album were we introducew some Deathcore and Progressive and we talk about darker themes this time.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
The weirdest thing... Well, once Dan (bass) played with an alien in the pegbox and a fan came and asked him if he could put his fingers into the alien´s mouth. "Go ahead, enjoy yourself” we said.
13. What do you think of your fans?
We think that they should be more. No, but really, they are awesome and really supportive and we want to thank them.
14. What do you think of our site?
We´ve been following it for quite a while to stay tuned and updated with the "Metal" world. I like how you guys don’t just talk about the big bands and take care of little bands, like us. Great job!
15. Something to add?
Thanks for the interview and remember to support your local bands.
