Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Beyond Extinction


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore band, Beyond Extinction 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?

I remember being on our groupchat late at night while we were listing all the suggestions we could muster. Probably 90% of them were funny or just dumb, but a couple stood, and this was one of them. It actually changed a couple times too in the early days.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

I knew I wanted to play this genre when Jasper and my brother brought me down to a gig in London. Brixton I believe, but can’t say 100%. the line up was Stick To Your Guns, then Asking Alexandria, then Parkway Drive headlining. I used to say “if I can’t understand the singer I don’t like it”, but all it took was the scenes from the opening band alone to turn me. Since that night I always wanted a future in metal.

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

All of us except Jude went to the same school, so I had been jamming with jasper in music rooms long before the band properly started. Zach and Niall Ivie we sort of knew about seeing them about school from time to time, but Jude actually came up to us after a gig we played in southend. We were looking for a second guitarist to help Zach out anyway so we all jammed and he fitted in neat. Goes to show what can happen if you just put yourself out there cause that’s all it took!

4. Each band member favourite band?

Got to say Parkway Drive and I’m 99% sure Jasper says the same. They’re the band that got me into metal and they’re one of few bands across genres that I can say I don’t really dislike anything I’ve heard them release.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We’re all definitely driven by an interest in making the best music we can, so a big part of why we sit down together and write songs is to challenge and push ourselves as individuals. Thats definitely what motivates us to set about writing music in the first place. Once we’re in the practice room forging ideas together, its all just a reflection of what we’re thinking or feeling at the time and translating it into music.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last gig we played was at the Bassment in Chelmsford. It feels like eternity ago because of lockdown, but it was actually one of my most enjoyable gigs. No real stage so the bands were level with crowd, small tightly packed venue, it was a bash!

7. Where would you like to play?

I’d love to play big arenas some day. I’m sure most musicians feel the same, but nothing beats a live performance and I wanna be part of making a crowd that size go electric.

8. Who would you like to support?

I think I'd like to support Cancer Bats again. That was a fantastic gig. I think opening for Thy Art Is Murder would be wicked. I’ve seen them before a few times and they always kill it live. They’re one of the bands that inspire us and it would just be dope to warm a crowd up for them 9. Who not? I can’t think of anyone in particular, probably because we just enjoy playing live shows as much as possible!

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

I don't think I'd say I've ever suffered from stage fright, but I can remember being nervous when we first started doing gigs, that’s just natural though. The best way to look at it is that everyone in the crowd wants to see you do your thing, so why not give it 100%! 

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Rather than just our favourite larger bands, other local artists like Walk In Coma have always been an inspiration to us - if they can do it then so can we.

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

On two separate occasions, a fan has asked me to sign their chest. Not too weird, but a bit strange that it's happened twice….

13. What do you think of your fans?

I'm very grateful for any support we get - it's still a shock to see people wearing our shirts and listening to our music but we absolutely love it every time we do. 14. What do you think of our site? It’s great, awesome to see sites like breathing the core giving bands of all sizes a spotlight. Check it out! 

15. Something to add?

We’ve got a new single released on 27/11/2020 called God Complex which you can stream on every platform, check that out! Stay safe wash yer hands wear a mask.
