Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Treyharsh


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal band, Treyharsh 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?

Treyharsh: The band actually had a different name at the very beginning, when the two main members still present were Sebastien and Damien. When the line-up evolved to welcome Julien, the name was changed to Treyharsh because it still sounded better than the core group which was Burning Pain!

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Treyharsh: Simply because of our influences, the band had a very different focus on the two previous albums, and clearly, it's the music we listen to that has shaped our playing and the composition of Eternal Cycles the most .

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

Treyharsh: Sebastien and Damien had known each other for a long time, as they had already had previous groups together. Then they met Julien, who himself met Rémy, and who immediately brought him back to the group when the latter was looking for a new bass player.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Sébastien: I particularly like Sepultura as well their recent albums as the oldest, I find in this group an authenticity and an energy especially in live. I am also fan of death metal bands such as Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm death, Aborted, Revocation. Their music is always direct and uncompromising. I greatly appreciated the technicality and the richness of the riffs of Mastodon's first albums. And finally I am a fan of Nirvana group that I have listened to for so long, it is thanks to their first album "Bleach" that I later turned towards metal music. The first time I listened to Pantera's "Far beyond Driven" album, I was blown away and stunned by the sound and it confirmed my musical choices.

Julien: I set foot in the Metal world thanks to Deftones that a friend introduced me to in college and I started digging deeper and deeper until I managed to listen to Batushka, Korn or even Tesseract in the same day. I don't necessarily have access to mainly Metal, everything that happens to make my hair stand on end has its place in my playlists but metal remains the dominant style of music in my life.

Rémy: For my part, I would say Gojira for the engaged and aerial side (The Way of All Flesh), Tool for the melody and the performance (10,000 Days), Meshuggah for the millimeter violence (Koloss) and High on Fire because I love Jeff Matz's bass playing (Snakes For The Divine)

Damien: Pantera because just hearing their music makes you go crazy. Enormous energy that makes you want to break everything. Mastodon for their style, their technique. When I heard Blood Mountain (especially the Capillarian Crest music), I finally understood the possibilities and the importance of the drums. Between the Buried and Me for all the styles they manage to mix in a single song, for the technique, the precision ... It's mega impressive to see this band live because they are so precise and square. 

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Treyharsh: The inspiration can be different depending on what you are looking for, that is to say that for the writing of the music and the composition of the riffs, it will be more the big favorites of each one who will have their place to feed the whole thing, while for the vocals it will be more personal experiences, real facts and more intimate feelings related to the members of the band that will guide the lyrics. 6. Where was your last gig?

Treyharsh: Our last gig was in Belgium during the second album tour in 2018, since, following the writing of Eternal Cycles and the crisis situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we haven't have not had the opportunity to replay, which is bad for good because we had more time to work.

7. Where would you like to act? 

Treyharsh: In the biggest European festivals and why not in the rest of the world. Our music is perfected and found over time, why not try to aim higher and let the whole world discover it! We have scoured the bars of France and Belgium, now is the time to look further. 

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Sébastien: I could die safe if Andreas Kisser from Sepultura one day solo on a future Treyharsh album. This is one of my favorite guitarists.

Julien: Regarding the groups with which we could play, tour, or even collaborate, I immediately think of Killer Be Killed to be ambitious. This group is made up of artists from bands that we love and the energy that comes out of their songs is phenomenal. A date to redo, the first part of The Ocean, it was a truly magical date!

Rémy: I would love to work with Gojira, because it's already a dream to share a scene for a title with them, I love what they do, their commitment is real, like the title Of Blood and Salt in collaboration with Devin Townsend and Fredrik Thordendal for Sea Shepherd ... This is one of the few bands able to transport me elsewhere and with which I have already managed to say to myself "But damn !! This is exactly what that I would have liked to do at that time !! " by playing one of their titles. It's terrible, I easily reproduce their songs because they speak to me! They border on perfection with every riff for me. But besides that, the teenager deep inside me still dreams of being able to play alongside James Hetfield on the Black Album tour ...

Damien: Gojira because it's the biggest metal band in France. On stage, they have a lot of energy. In addition, we could speak French with them. Between the Buried and Me on a collab 'to understand how they manage to compose their songs.

9. Whom not?

Treyharsh: Bob Marley, Kurt Cobain or Freddy Mercury ... We never managed to share the work 50/50 ...

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

Not too much to tell the truth, the machine is still well established and we all have all the same a lot of years of practice of our instruments ... The confidence in us is undoubtedly better with the experience.

Rémy: Being the last to arrive, I still remember my first concert well, I was sick, first group, big date, first part of Psychup .. Everything was there to make me slam my knees, but in the end after the first 4 notes of the first riff I played, the stress left to give way to a sick euphoria. So if I have any advice for beginners, it's to work up front and once on stage your body will play on its own!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Treyharsh: All of our respective influences ...

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

Treyharsh: There's a pretty funny story, where a guy we didn't know asked us to autograph his album by drawing cocks. So he is the proud owner of the only edition of "When the Sun Sets in the East" where each member of the group has drawn his cock under his dedication as a signature. 

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Treyharsh: They are patient, present and part of the band somewhere, there is no stage without an audience. It’s a complete and full part of the life of a band. Without support the band falls into oblivion, and without a band the lives would be much quieter from the audience's point of view. 

14. What do you think of our site?

Treyharsh: It's a great tool! For beginners as well as for those initiated into metal music. The site is sober, it doesn't overdo it, it is very well organized and precise in its proposals. It deserves more visibility!

15. Something add?

Treyharsh: Thanks to Breathing The Core for showing us interest, listening to us, and talking to their audience about us. Thank you to all those who support us, near and far, who share our music and above all who share their passion for metal around
