Interviews: Widow´s Peak

Share:

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Death Metal/Deathcore band Widow´s Peak, from Canada. 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?
Just kind of came out one day. We rehearsed for a while without a name, and eventually we realized that I (Chris) and Scott both have a widow's peak hairline, and we thought it made a cool name.
2. Why did you want to play this genre?
We never planned out what genre we were going to play; we just started practicing and writing, and the sound we have is the sound that just came out. We all just brought our own influences to the table and liked the sound.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
No, the only people who knew each other were Scott Cressman and Matt Yeomans, who both played in The Avulsion.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Matt Yeomans (Vocals) - Cannibal Corpse
Chris McCrimmon (Guitar) - The Cure
Scott Cressman (Guitar) - Suicide Silence
Mike Jones (Bass) – Exodus
Patricio Cereceda (Drums) - Meshuggah

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
There's a show on the Treehouse network called "In The Night Garden" that gives me perpetual nightmares, from which I may never wake. The demonic apparition known to man only as "Iggle Piggle" haunts my every waking moment; may death bring swift release.
6. Where was your last gig?
Back in September we were fortunate enough to open for Archspire and Reaping Asmodeia here in Calgary, at our local spot Distortion. We're actually going to play with them again in August at the Loud As Hell festival!
7. Where would you like to act?
We haven't ventured very far from home, so we'd still really like to play the States and eastern Canada. We're hoping to make our way to some of those places next year, but we'll see how things roll out.
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
I think doing a split with a grindcore/deathgrind kind of band would be fun. We have a lot of talent in southern Alberta like Path to Extinction, feeding, and wake who would be fun to do something like that with. We've also been talking about getting some guest vocals featured on our full length when we do it, but we'll have to see how that pans out.
9. Whom not?
I don't think going too far out of our sound category would work too well. I'll never turn down a show/opportunity because of other bands though.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
 I think we all get a little nervous at times before a set, but the best thing to do is remain confident and calm. Playing a show should be fun, so have some fun with it.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
We all take inspiration from such varied areas of the musical spectrum so I know personally we all have different inspirations, but as a band I think a few would be Cannibal corpse, Cryptopsy, Mesuggah. Mostly in the death metal realms.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
We had one fan message us asking our vocalist to sing (not vocalize, but sing) happy birthday to him. Which we did.
13. What do you think of your fans?
We love our fans! I mean you'd be foolish not to really, they're the ones supporting our pipe dreams and poor habits so we owe the world to them.

14. What do you think of our site? 
I like how the site is laid out, I like the access to information about small and up and coming bands, I appreciate the opportunity to be on here.
