In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the Hardcore band Swarm Of Rats, from Greece. 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?
Haha well...I was playin a game and there was a spell called Swarm of Rats and we were searching for a name We were gonna use the name Groundwar but it was taken already so we went with SOR.
2. Why did you want to play this genre?
When I started the band with Soc (guitar) we were fresh into the hardcore scene and I believe that is a type of music that changed the way I see around me the way I live everything...it's the realest genre for me.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Yes I've met Socrates back in the end of 2012 and we had a different line up back then but we were friends couple of years with the other dudes also. Then we met our drummer Thanos and Socrates met up with our other guitarist Chris and last year another friend of ours Spyros joined the band as a bass player.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Haha I got a ton to say but I'll keep it short... For me I'd say all the bands from SHC (cuz they got me into hardcore) and Death Before Dishonor(Gio) Toxic Holocaust (Soc) Kvelertak (Thanos) Sepultura and Kreator ( Spyros) Desolated (Chris)
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
Uhm,reality and situations we've been through.
6. Where was your last gig?
Haha in the storage of our guitarist's Socrates cuz it's hard to find a place for us in our city,we don't complain though it's a lot of fun!
7. Where would you like to act?
We normally like small places to play it's better cuz it's nice to be face to face with the crowd apart from that we would like to play any place we can.
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
I'll throw a couple fav's here haha uhmm... Suburban Scum though they don't exist anymore Lifeless,Vow Of Hatred. I'll end it here cuz otherwise it would be a long list.
9. Whom not?
Well,people/bands we don't like haha.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
I believe all of us,I still kinda stressed up when I get onto stage even there's not 'lot of people. Tips...well I believe it's a matter of time to get used to the stage the people and the lights otherwise you can concetrate on the thing you do (sing,guitar etc) and let yourself to your music. Show your best.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
Everyone got different taste of music in the band,still we all listen to hardcore as a main thing but everyone is bringing his own thing in the table. Inspiration bands for us is the bands we talked above.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
I don't think that we have a fanbase as we're not a big band or something,but even if we do we never had something crazy asked to do.
13. What do you think of your fans?
Thanks for the support.
14. What do you think of our site?
