Interviews: The Last Cell


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metal/Rock band The Last Cell from Austria. Check out the interview and follow the 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?

It just made sense for me. The name to me carries everything I want to convey with my music. I just love science and nature. That is also basically the main theme of it. It's the story of somehow everything from the origin of existence, the fight of survival to the point where the last cell will perish and thus concluding the end of the thing we call life.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I am just drawn to it I guess. But I also play different kinds of genres that also influence my writing style I think.

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

I started my Solo – Project in 2017 and I knew that eventually, I will need to find members for the live set- up. I knew Florian Lukas (Bass) before I started with The Last Cell since I basically grew up with him - so I asked him if he wants to play bass for me. I was still missing a Drummer for my live set-up so I asked Norbert Leitner, a friend of mine which is also my go-to studio guy if he knows a good drummer. Robins name was the first he mentioned and I am so glad he did.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Mine (Jean-Marc Perc) right now is Intervals, Florian Lukas can’t live a day without listening to Modern Talking and Robin really digs Wham!. – and yes that is exactly what they told me – silly boys.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Writing is my all-time favorite thing. I never liked playing other songs so much so I always stick to writing my own.

6. Where was your last gig?

Escape Metalcorner / Vienna

7. Where would you like to perform?

Definitely at a bigger festival and at NAMM.

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

I would love reading “Plini / Intervals / The Last Cell “on a poster – that’s my dream right there.

9. Whom not?

I can’t really think of anyone, to be honest.

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

We all had our fair share of live experience so that is not an issue anymore. The tip I have for beginners is to lower your expectations – it’s okay to suck at the beginning. That’s part of the whole process.

Because of Instagram and other social media sites, we really try to be “perfect” all the time and that is really damaging for us– even for our mental health.

If it really IS a big issue then start to play in front of one person and then gradually increase the size of your audience. Start with your grandma (cause she loves you anyway right?) – invite some friends to play in front of them and try that as often as possible. One step at a time.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Scar Symmtery, Intervals, Plini and Animals as Leaders

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

Nothing weird happened yet *looking suspiciously over my shoulder*

13. What do you think of your fans?

Of course, I appreciate them! No artist would be what he is without the fans that somehow validate his output in that sense. So many people gave me a positive response after I released my music. I don’t know what could beat the feeling of the realization that someone out there loves the things I create.

14. What do you think of our site?

I love the fact that you guys and gals are dedicated to representing so many musicians and giving them a platform! And I love the name of it btw!

15. Something to add?

Check out my latest release “Continental Drift” and share it with your homies!
