Interviews: Bleed Someone Dry

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Progressive Deathcore band Bleed Someone Dry from Italy. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Hi guys, it’s a pleasure to have a little chat with you. We got the idea for the band’s name many years ago. The band has been playing since 2006 and after a line-up change, when our guitarist Jonny and our drummer Ruben joined the group, we chose the name Bleed Someone Dry, which means extorting or draining someone’s resources, blood or anything you might take away from a person. Actually we like the way it sounds more than its’s really catchy! So even tough we’ve had the idea to change it in the past, we eventually decided to keep it.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We never really stopped thinking about the genre we wanted to play... we basically all grew up with the same musical influences and the idea of what we wanted to create and play has always been very clear. Death core influences with a modern touch.. but the album definitely has a bit of everyone of us!

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

No, we didn’t really know each other that well... I mean we basically all come from the same place and we’ve met in the past, but nothing more than this!

4. Each band member favourite band?

We all share very similar taste and we could mention hundreds of bands we all listen to. But anyway we’re really inspired by bands such as Thy art is murder, Whitechapel, Fit for an autopsy and deathcore in general and also by more melodic bands like Architects and of course all time greats like Slipknot, Gojira, Meshuggah.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We try to get the inspiration for the lyrics from our lives and what happens around us... Sensations, experiences and feelings coming to our mind in specific moments... for “Unorthodox” we tried to express our particular and unusual vision of life.. of course it is not a very positive idea, but a deeply cold and pessimistic vision, but objectively the world we live in and our personal environment are not exactly idyllic.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was a couple of weeks ago in Milan for the release party of our buddies The Big Jazz Duo.

7. Where would you like to act?

By the time we started playing we’ve had the chance to perform in many places, and some of them were real bomb! Festivals are usually the best environment for us, especially to ones abroad (Exit and Revolution Festival were great opportunities!), but we also had unforgettable experiences and performances in Italy in clubs such as Alcatraz in Milan and New Age in Treviso. For the future we’d be enthusiast to have the chance to perform in festivals like Euroblast or the Uk Tech Fest, but we know it’s usually hard and complicated... but you must always dream big!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Well, I could mention a million bands... but I think we would all be enthusiast to perform with great bands like Architects, Thy art is murder, Meshuggah... but I could really go on for hours with that! Definitely having the chance to open for Gojira, Fit for an autopsy, I declare war and Cryptopsy concerts has been a real honour.

9. Whom not?

It’s always a great pleasure to perform and I wouldn’t be able to find a band we  wouldn’t enjoy playing with.

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

Of course when you play before a more mature and established band in some important stage having a little thrill before the performance can totally happen but I wouldn’t say that any of us has ever been nervous. We could simply call it excitement or adrenaline but these are all feeling that just disappear when you start playing.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

As I told you before, we all listen to a lot of music and it would be unfair to mention a specific name! I would say in general all the death core movement, djent and also more prog stuff..

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

Actually we never really had strange requests from our fans. Probably during our tour in Russia some guys asked for the t-shirts we had performed with and some personal stuff such as bracelets.. but (fortunately) nothing odd or crazy!

13. What do you think of your fans?

We met many people during our concerts .. some of them were really bizarre but after talking to them they all always came out to be super cool. Of course our music and the genre we play is very particular so there’s always a bit of madness in the people coming to our concerts, but that’s fun and I’d also say necessary!

14. What do you think of our site?

What you do to promote an underground and niche genre like ours is great! It’s thanks to people like you and to your passion that we have the chance to share our music and express our deepest thoughts. That is so awesome and admirable! Thank you very much!

15. Something add?

I think we pretty much covered it all! We’d like to thank all our fans, see you guys very soon!
