Interviews: Eternal Closure


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metalcore band, Eternal Crusade from Canada. 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?

Maggy: The idea of the band name comes from brainstorm, there was a few other ideas but we decided to stick with this one!

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

Olivier: We started as a more mainstream metalcore band just because it was fun to play and a bit simpler. But we started going in a more progressive direction just because that's what we like most.

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

Olivier: I joined the band and knew only one person in the band. We all got to know each other through playing music together. Of course the exception is when Phil (my brother) joined the band. We've known each other for at least a few years haha.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Maggy: At the moment it would be either Architects or Fit For an Autopsy.

Olivier: My all-time favorite band is Dream Theater which is where most of the proggier elements come from. For Jonathan, it's either Iron Maiden or Opeth probably. And for Phil I think he'd say Periphery.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

Maggy: A lot of bands inspire me, but in general I would say what happens around the globe and personal stuff. Writing is a good way to overcome personal issues, it’s like a good therapy, but cheaper!

6. Where was your last gig? 

Olivier: We played a show in Quebec last February. We've had other plans but the pandemic had them either postponed or cancelled sadly.

7. Where would you like to perform? 

Maggy: Any festival like Wacken, Hellfest or Heavy Montreal which is in our hometown!

8. Whom would you like to perform with?

Maggy: Any bands that matches the style and that inspired us in what we’re doing!

9. Whom not?

Maggy: Specifically, no one comes to my mind but I would say, any band that doesn’t match the style at all!

Olivier: Yeah, as long as they're fun to play with and not the worst people ever it should be fine haha.

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

Maggy: I suffer from stage fright, a little less now that I’m getting older, but still am really nervous before hitting the stage. I just try to stay calm and not think about the crowd, it intimidates me in some ways, just try to perform without thinking about it, it usually goes away after the first song and this is when the fun begins! As an advice I would say: Enjoy the moment because it never lasts and when it’s over, would like to have more! It’s a drug!

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Maggy: I would say Architects and Fit for an Autopsy for the lyrics, the way they write their stuff, when you listen to their music, it’s easy to see the whole story in your head, it’s like a movie where anyone could make their own version!

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

Maggy: In my old band, we were once asked by one of our fans (who became a friend) if we could play at their wedding. It was 80's themed so we had to do some covers (like Samantha Fox' “Touch Me”) in a metalcore style, it was great. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Maggy: They’re amazing! If they weren’t there we wouldn’t be there either! It’s because of them that we have the chance to do what we love the most, creating and playing music!

14. What do you think of our site? 

Olivier: I love the amount of content and how it's all separated in the sub-genres. Makes it a lot of fun to move around and find stuff. Also thanks for having us that's really cool :)

15. Something to add?

Olivier: Make sure to check out our latest release called “Color of Our Fears: Rediscovered”. We have a video for “The Slave or the Owner” that is a lot of fun and you should all check it out if you like intense, thrash-y metalcore!
