Interviews: HAMPERED

In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metalcore  band HAMPERED 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? 

Hampered, refers to the grip of man by the man, the mind on the body, to imagine the consciousness of our own freedom. It's also the meaning of our first album ASYLUM.  

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

It is important for us to mix the power and "violence" of the metalcore and add some melodic chorus that carries us like a dream. Also we like write some breakdown in our songs.

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

Not at all. At the beginning I work with Germinal and step by step Fafa, Stef and Romain came in the band. other guys came and left. It was so hard to have a definitive line-up. You know, it is not easy to say "ok : the band is my priority guys". 

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Guillaume: Korn / Smash hit Combo / Leprous 

Germinal:  the dillinger escape plan / Destrage

Fafa: System Of A Down

Romain: Trivium / Sepultura / unleash the archers

Stef: Peste noire / ghost / Igorrrr

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

This concept-album has been inspired by several movies like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Shutter island" and more recently "American horror story". It is funny because all the story of ASYLUM was written when we discover "American horror story.

6. Where was your last gig? 

it was in the "omega live" in Toulon on November 2017 (France) (600 people max). Now we want to live a big "ASYLUM-TOUR" 

7. Where would you like to act? 

Now wih this album ASYLUM, we hope move all around Europe and more. We have some contact to Russian Tour and Canada Tour. It will be amasing to perform our music in those country. It is nice to be surrounded by Dooweet Agency (PAris) and Another management for this project.  

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

 There is to much artiste that we love to feature. In this album it was very nice to work with Maxime Keller (SMASH HIT COMBO / BOARS). Maybe with the great Morgan Berthet (on drum) or a new guys, i don't know if you know Serj Tankian ? (Lol)

9. Whom not? 

All featuring can be nice, no matter the type of music. Groove and nothing else matter. 

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

Yes, For Germi (the singer) is very easy "You have to shut-down your brain !!". For me it is also easy. "more crazy you will be, less stage fright you will have". Seriously, the most important thing is the first note. after you don't have the choice to be brave.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

For Germi is Dry kill logic and Destrage. For me is cleary SOAD and Leprous. For the show Rammstein is just incredible. 

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

It'is not weird but one time a fan drawn our logo during school and wrote "When english lessons piss me off, I remember the last show from HAMPERED". It was amasing to see that. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

For us, Fans is like a "big word" you know. Metallica has Fans,  Sliplknot or Behemot have fans. But HAMPERED... Yes you're right, we must have some fans.

14. What do you think of our site?

I like the possibility to discover band from country. And it is just amasing to discover lot of metal band from everywere
