Interviews: High Moonlight

In this new occassion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal  band High Moonlight from the Brazil. Check out the interview. 
1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
I have always enjoyed mystical, magical, supernatural and related things. That was precisely what I wanted to address in my lyrics. And the moon is a very mystical symbol, both for wizards, enchanted beings, wolves and Lycans, so I chose it as the name of my band and added the word "High" to magnify it even more. High Moonlight is a tribute to this historical and mysterious symbol that is the moon and all the mystical beings that exist or existed and are part of our history.
2.Why did you want to play this genre?
Because to me is the closest way to express all my fury with this lost world we live in. And it's also a way for me to try to get out of this damn country where I live called Brazil.
For me Metal is the most direct and objective way of expressing any type of feeling, and when we want to express some revota there is no other style better than heavy metal or rock n roll to expose all the internal demons.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
At the beginning of the first formation yes, but in this current formation we did not know each other. We got to know each other a little bit ... It's not easy to find good Heavy Metal musicians in Brazil who want to play in an authorial soundtrack (people here are still very involved in making covers of other bands instead of investing in their own music and this ends up limiting the creativity of musicians very much here). So we depend a lot on the nomination of friends or even count on a little luck and fortunately the band is having such luck.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Each knot brings a bit of different influences but in the end everything fits perfectly when it comes to making our sound. It's not because the vocalist is a fan of bands like Iron Maiden, Savatage or Manowar that we will make our sound identical to these bands ... or the bass player who is very fan of 60's bands that we will create songs like Led Zeppelin. .. or even I that I am more connected in the traditional Heavy Metal that I will limit myself to the established standards of this genre. No. All our influences serve only as a basis to enhance our knowledge and create an authentic and unique sound of a band called High moonlight..
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
There is no ideal formula or magic. I simply think that as a musician it is always my duty to be composing and writing new songs. All the time I'm thinking of music, whether it's working, whether it's bedtime, or the gym working out. So, as I said, there is no magic formula or speculation for me to compose, but in relation to my compositions I always prefer to talk about mystical or occult things so sometimes I read something like that or watch some movie to have clearer and more specific ideas about the subject.
6. Where was your last gig?
At a small festival in a city in the interior of São Paulo, at the end of last year. Since then it was not possible to schedule any more shows because the band had suffered a downfall and I needed to find new members to continue the work. Fortunately everything is back to normal and I hope to return to the stage as soon as possible. We are rehearsing with the new line-up and we really want to play again live.
7. Where would you like to perform?
Any country in North America and Europe. In relation to festivals any band that longs to be great has the dream of playing in Wacken or Hellfest. These are the main ones I want to be able to play one day.
8. Whom would you like to perform with?
Megadeth, Manowar, Accept
For me these bands still make a nervous and heavy sound, of course, that I would love to meet these guys in person and talk to them a little.
9. Whom not?
I have nothing against anyone, paying our show we play with anyone. But nothing so extreme. No playing alongside extreme Death Metal bands or stuff like that, simply the audience for certain types of music or style are very demanding and radical in that regard.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
A vocalist we had at the beginning was very embarrassed to appear in public but over time things have been improving. Nervousness always exists in any performance, certainly with both experienced and early-career bands. But it is usually just being well rehearsed that there is no way things go wrong. If each of the musicians is well rehearsed and knows exactly what he's going to do on stage, then I'm not afraid how things go wrong. This is pretty much what I give, rehearse a lot before getting on the stage.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
My main musical influences are bands like Black Sabbath, AC / DC, Megadeth, Rainbow and Dio.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
So far nothing much. I'm not famous yet ... maybe when I become famous this happens to happen, but hj still nothing has happened so abnormal, ie no fan came to ask me something strange even today, ah not be songs that we would never play live .
13. What do you think of your fans?
A good crowd. He likes to listen to a heavy sound and drink lots of beer. Just like me.
I have nothing to complain about (laughs) Whenever they can contact us to know what we are doing or if we have new compositions to be released. I just hope that this number of fans increases every day (laughs).
14. What do you think of our site?
Cool. I hope they continue to open space and give opportunities to more independent bands from all over the world, the underground scene thanks. There are many bands around the world that need this kind of support and help, and as you give that kind of opportunity the bands themselves also help in spreading your work. That is, it is a two-way street. Congratulations..
15. Something to add?
Thank you for the opportunity for this interview and I leave below the link of two pages for those who want to check our work. This will help a lot in the dissemination of our songs and this is what we most want and need at the moment, much publicity and noise from the fans of heavy metal in general!
