Interviews: Repentance


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metal band, Repentance, from the USA. 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?

I came up with the name from just scrolling through songs on my iPod and I saw the word REPENTANCE and it really hit me as a strong yet meaningful word that I felt fit the sound of the music early on...

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I have always played tons of style in Metal & Rock but with this new project, I really wanted it to be very aggro and energetic that I felt so many new bands lacked from doing the same style of recording and studio trickery. We made sure the album was as organic as possible but very polished.

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

Mike the bassist was in The Bloodline with me and I had toured with drummer Kanky before when I was in Dirge Within as he was in the band Straight Line Stitch. Markus I knew of from mutual friends and I thought he would fit with the style of music I wanted to create and it worked out killer, Then we began trying out singers and nobody really impressed us til a friend suggested Robby whom lived in Chicago and his try out went very well and he became the frontman for REPENTANCE.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Well, I can't speak for all of them but I do know they all dig bands like Slayer, As I Lay Dying, King Diamond, Exodus, Architects, Dying Fetus, Death and I love so many bands from Pestilence, The Haunted, Megadeth, Trivium.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Everyday life makes me write which is obviously my outlet but not one artist, in particular, inspires my style but guys like Hetfield, Piggy, Dimebag, Chuck Schuldiner are huge influences in my riffing style.

6. Where was your last gig?

I think it was Oct in Chicago @ Reggie's supporting Sacred Reich

7. Where would you like to act?

Act??? I am not an actor ha!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Ummm no one? 

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

No sir I never have been from playing big fests to small clubs i like playing shows so I have no fear ha!

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

I would say anything from my childhood like KISS, UFO, SAXON to later bands like Slayer, Megadeth to even more new stuff I hear daily can do as such.

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

My beard hair!!!!

12. What do you think of your fans?

I am shocked how many of them have supported me musically from all of my past works as some of the stuff I have done is not exactly like the other.I do like to mix it up but still keep my stamp on it.

13. What do you think of our site?

Fuckin Metal!

14. Something you'd like to add?

I hope everyone can get the debut album "GOD FOR A DAY" SEPT 25TH and buy the real cd as it sounds so much better than just streaming it off some server.Music is art...
