Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Mindwake


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore/Metalcore/Nu-Metal band, Mindwake from France. 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?

Hey I'm Charley, the singer of the band. The band name was found by drummer Lou and our former bassist Joffrey smoking weed. Mindwake well represents the open-mindedness of the music and the excessive consumption of weed haha 

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We have been fans of Nu-Metal since our teenage years, we wanted to mix this style with modern metal and Mindwake was born. Mixes the aggressiveness and atmospheres of Nu-Metal and the heaviness of Hardcore / Deathcore

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

With the current line up, no! But when the band was formed we were all friends and we wanted to make a band together, everyone was new to their instrument and we wanted to evolve together and see what it could be like.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Charley: Emmure, Molotov Solution, Slipknot

Lou: System Of A Down, Nirvana, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Cypress Hill

Loïc: Chelsea Grin

Dorian: Periphery, Ocean Grove, Thrice, Architects

Samir: Archspire, Necrophagist, Beneath the massacre, Anorexia nervosa, Cynic, Beyond creation

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The experiences of life, the music that we can listen to, the emotions, the conversations that we can have with people, a global analysis of the current world (For the lyrics), we are inspired by the bands that we love most

6. Where was your last gig?

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