Interviews: Bloodmores


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Thrash Metal band Bloodmores from the UK. 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?

We spent forever trying to come up with a name that we were all happy with, and eventually settled on the idea of just creating a word of our own to be our name, so that we'd be less likely to share the name with any already established bands, and then have to change ours later on. The word 'Mores' is like a trait of society, or of a community, and by adding Blood to the beginning of it, it's sort of our way of trying to describe a self-destructive, or self-sabotaging trait of society.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We didn't really have a set genre in mind when writing the album. We're all into a pretty wide scope of various styles of metal, so all we knew really was that we wanted to play fast and heavy, but there have never really been any rules about sticking to a strict genre when we're writing together, we just play whatever flows, really.

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

I (Alex) was introduced to Richard by a friend that knew I was trying to get a metal band together. Richard then introduced me to Connor, who joined us on bass, and we wrote our debut album, The Seeds Of Seasons, together, after which I met Chris, and after showing him some rough demos of our album tracks, we invited him to join us on drums.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Alex – Nightwish (Although, they don't really influence what I do with Bloodmores, so either Hypocrisy or earlier Arch Enemy albums would probably be more suitable)

Richard – Nevermore

Connor – DevilDriver

Chris – Rammstein  

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Musically, we all have a lot a different influences, but we share a lot of influences too, with bands and artists that we're all into, and we just sort of jam together, with no real rules as to what metal sub-genre we might fall under, and we'll just work on furthering whatever ideas we come up with that we're all happy with. Lyrically though, just like the world around us is a big influence, and how we treat the world and treat each other. The lyrics to our album are all reflective of what we would consider being real-world issues, so there are themes relating to the environment, and discrimination, for example. 

6. Where was your last gig?

Most recently we played at The Alma Inn, in Bolton. It's a small venue, but there's always a great atmosphere, and actually, when we played there last, the guy on the bar, serving drinks, just jumped up with the band on before us and did some impromptu vocals. It was brutal!

7. Where would you like to perform?

Anywhere where the audience is enjoying what we're doing, really. Obviously, not everyone is going to like what we're doing, and we've played some smaller venues where the crowd was just going wild, and loving our set, and I'd take gigs like that over bigger venues, where the crowd isn't really feeling it, any day of the week.

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

I feel like we'd go down well as an opening band for the likes of Hypocrisy, DevilDriver, The Black Dahlia Murder, or maybe Lamb Of God, to name a few. 

9. Whom not?

Anyone that's going to be a diva, or just generally be hard to work with. We're all just here to have a good time.

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

Personally, I've never really had stage fright, I thrive off being on stage, and can't get enough of it, but I know Richard gets pretty bad stage fright. I never would have known though if he hadn't told me, cause I've never noticed it affect his performance at all.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

We all have quite a wide scope of influences, but between us, I'd say our biggest shared influences would be DevilDriver, Arch Enemy, Hypocrisy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Lamb Of God, Unearth, and Nevermore, to name a few.

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

We keep getting asked about when we're going to add Bloodmores snap-back caps to our merch, but only by one guy. Dave, if you're reading this, we can't justify an entirely new item of merch just for you, man.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We see some regular faces at our local shows, and it really does mean the world to us that they keep coming back to see us. We're still a pretty new band on the scene, and we really do appreciate such support.

14. What do you think of our site?

You guys seem to be doing a great job helping to spread the word about smaller, upcoming bands, like us, and we massively appreciate your support. Keep up the good work, guys!

15. Something to add?

Thank you to you guys for taking the time to talk to us, and thank you to anyone that's bought an album from us, been to any of our shows, or is hoping to make it down to a show some time soon. You guys are the best!
