Interviews: Black Light


In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metalcore band Black Light, from Italy. 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? 

It came quite by itself, we guess we wanted a name which represented the  different aspects of the music we’re playing. The “Black” represents the  darkness that we feel in our music, playing what we play is a way to  turn that darkness, the pain, the stress, and all the negative energy  into something we’re proud of, while the “Light” is our ally raising us  on our path to realise your dreams. This light is what we stick to to  keep going on and achieve ourselves. 

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

Metalcore is a perfect mix between heaviness and melody, which makes us  link every aspect of what comes out of , it’s balanced, and you can find  everything I need when you listen to it, like a full meal!  The synchronism between drums, bass and guitar is what gives to the  breakdown its depth shot ,every instant is impacting, like pure  adrenaline, and when the melody comes, it’s chilling, intimate, the  other side of happiness. 

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

Mattia: We didn’t actually, except for Nicholas and I. We’re brothers  and the project started as the result of the passion we share for music.  The line-up changed various times before we met Lou, who left his home  in France to join us. Matteo came two years later and gave this band the  stability it needed. In the end, every step came in its right time. 

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Mattia: Asking Alexandria, and Architects. 
Nicholas: Asking Alexandria too, and Bad Omens. 
Matteo: Mudvayne and Caliban. 
Lou: Stone Sour and Slipknot. 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

We’re mostly inspired by our personal life experience and the  perceptions of any kind of thing that we could feel around us, which can  come in any time. It can be a memory of someone , or a feeling settled  into our mind which could make us feel like aliens in a world which have  everything already set. Our lyrics often talk about personal and social  topics. Like anxiety, rejection, anger, hate. We throw all this stuff  out of ourselves, and convert it into music. You know, when you write  you don’t think about it, you just catch the moment in which your mind  goes on the right way, like “this is how we feel, now deal with it!’ 

6. Where was your last gig? 

The last gig that we played it was at “Circolo Colony” in Brescia,  Italy. It was kind of some time ago, but it’s one of those which marked  us the most. We thank everyone who were there, and love the feedback  everyone gave us, it was a really special time. 

7. Where would you like to act? 

In as much places we can! We hope this path will allow us to travel  the world and make us bring something special from every different  audience with us. 

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Nicholas&Mattia: of course Asking Alexandria! 

Lou: Corey Taylor, It’s my dream to share a stage with him.  

Matteo: Anyone who could give us a growing experience. 

9. Whom not? 

Every autotune user! Okay that was a nasty joke, we don’t hate any  artist in particular, every experience will could get into is welcomed  and could make us evolve. 

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

You always feel at little nervous the first time, but we’ve alway find  the way to manage it. The crowd is not here to take you down, and when  we see it, we just feel grateful, the fact that they’re here to listen  to us, to share the gig with us and to appreciate our music makes us  love them. fearing them would be a contradiction, and when you play  music, if you concentrate on what it makes you feel, you don’t worry  about the eyes pointed on your face. You just appreciate them. 

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Mattia: The band that inspire us are Asking Alexandria, Architects, Miss  May I, Bad Omens, Emmure, and every band like them who keeps Metalcore’s  identity alive. 

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

Oh we actually have some weird proposal, like joining illuminati and  shit like this. But of course everything were jokes and everyone ended  up laughing about that. You know Metal in general can be stereotyped,  but the better way to take it away is turning these stereotypes into  something funny. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We love our fans ,anyone who could support us is the blood who keeps  this project alive, and gives it the chance to go on. 

14. What do you think of our site http://www.breathingthecore.com

We love it! The interface is super user-friendly and have an awesome  look. We’re also very glad of your interest for growing bands! Keep going that way, and thank you so much, we recommend Breathing The Core to every Hardcore, Metal, and Rocknroll fan!
