In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal band Undisclosed Dimensions, from France. 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?
With this band I (Romain) wanted to go into new territories for me, mixing tech death with a very melodic approach. I wanted the name to reflect that in a way (we didn’t have any lyrics or concept for the EP yet), this idea of creating something new. It sounds pretentious, like I invented a genre, which I did not, so it’s really related to a personal challenge and wish to do create new things.
2.Why did you want to play this genre?
2.Why did you want to play this genre?
Nick: We were all already pretty big fans of technical death metal in general, but we decided that it might be more fun to zero in on a subgenre that added more melodic elements as well as song dynamics.
David: I like extreme music.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Nick: Dave and I met only once at the Brutal Assault festival in Czech Republic in 2016. Back then we didn’t have any plans of forming a band though. We've only known Romain online, but he is actually planning a trip to come hang out in Prague later this month (September).
David: I met Nick at the Brutal Assault festival in 2016, and he mentioned he had an upcoming project that needed a bass player. I guess technically the band was already formed at that point, but I officially started working on the project around the beginning of this year.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Romain: David Maxim Micic. He’s definitely my biggest influence and I admire his music as well as all the work he does around it, videos and graphics.
Nick: Picking just one is too tough! I’d say the older Dark Tranquility stuff is probably my longest lasting favorite, but the last few Sylosis albums are also so emotionally powerful that I cant see to get away from them for very long.
David: Hard to pick one. I do play in a Death tribute band, so I would probably go with them.
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
I (Romain) write instrumentals before the lyrics are there (or at least it was the case for this EP, who knows what will happen for our next record). So I try to focus on an emotion or a feeling, and translate that in music.
6. Where was your last gig?
We don't gig, but Dave's other band, Xenosis, plays pretty regularly in the New England area. Those guys are all really awesome at what they do.
7. Where would you like to act?
Nick: As of now, we don't have any plans to do live performances. We're completely international (and I guess intercontinental), so we're totally fine with being exclusively online. We are planning several playthrough videos though and other fun stuff like that.
David: As in where would I want to play? Brutal Assault or Hellfest would be pretty cool.
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
Nick: Really anyone that we’re fans of and that have a complimentary style. We’re usually open to getting involved with new ideas. That’s basically how we got started, after all.
David: Decrepit Birth seem like they would be fun to play a show with.
9. Whom not?
Nick: Maybe some goats or other barnyard animals. But now that I mention it... maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
David: I’ll play with pretty much anyone.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
Nick: If stage fright is something you have to deal with, the biggest thing is to just practice. The second time will never be as bad as the first, and so on. It also helps if you're playing with close friends who you feel really comfortable with.
David: I’ve never had a huge issue with stage fright personally. The only real advice for a beginner is to practice. I hated hearing that when I was a beginner, but that’s really all it comes down to.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
Romain: Devin Townsend. He’s been killing it for more than 20 years, has an insane amount of albums released and they are all unique and awesome.
David: Probably Death honestly.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
13. What do you think of your fans?
So far, our fans are really awesome. Even as we're just starting out, people are already engaged and seem genuinely interested in what we're doing and what our future plans might be.
14. What do you think of our site?
It’s a great source for news, and it’s really awesome to open it to established acts as well as small bands. That kind of help is a huge for new bands and is really appreciated.
