Interviews: EVERFROST

In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Power Metal band EVERFROST from Finland. 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?

The characters and stories in our albums live and take place in a secret, hidden city called Everfrost. So we decided to take this also as the band name.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We felt power metal was bombastic and had enough variety to incorporate fresh elements and be a storytelling vehicle to combine with comics, manga and other media.

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

Benji and Markus knew each other prior to the lineup forming, Jope and Allan were also in the same band before Benji met them online. Benji also met Mikael online, bringing the lineup together.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Mikael - Iron Maiden

Markus - Iron Maiden

Benji - MIKA

Allan - Death Grips

Jope - Metallica

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The most influential artists, writers, directors in modern times, Disney, Japanese entertainment industry, the hope for a better world and dreams.

6. Where was your last gig?

It was at Golden Classics in Helsinki, Finland at the end of our Cold Nights Tour. We had just filmed our live DVD at The Circus so our performance was really charged! The crowd was also fantastic at that show. 

7. Where would you like to act?

We want to get to wherever our fans are but some obvious and not so obvious goals are Japan, Siberia, Iceland, Greenland, Svalbard.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Any of our heroes!

9. Whom not?

Bands who aren’t nice people.

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

Not really, there is probably more stress and just tiring work involved with getting the show ready and organized. Once everything is working and ready to go the show is just fun. The key for anyone getting into performing is don’t take yourself too seriously but learn from your mistakes.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Any band who play well put on a great show and treat their audience well.

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

No fan has asked anything really weird but someone once told us they wouldn’t join the band unless we change our name, logo and stop using our anime image. The thing that was weird about it is that we never actually asked them to join in the first place!

13. What do you think of your fans?

We have huge respect for our fans. Their support has inspired us to continue making content every year and make it to our sophomore album Winterider.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s great to have sites like this shining light and insight onto new or growing bands!

15. Something add?

Thank you for having us!
