Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: SILENT VEREDICT


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Melodic Death Metal band, SILENT VEREDICT from Sweden. 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?

Answer: Ricky Magnusson is the drummer. Johan Schill is the guitarist. Mattias Gunnarsson is the Basist and Mattias Kulas is the Vocalist. It was way back in 2009 when Ricky and his friend Viktor decided to start the band and just played around with a few names. They both agreed the name was pretty unique and while easy to understand still sparks a few questions which is up to the onlooker to interpret. From there on it has stuck and we don’t have any plans to change it. 

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Answer: We have listened to metal sinc we were very young so this were the obvious genre for us to play! Just love it!

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

Answer: Ricky and Johan knew each other some time before they started up Silent Verdict back in 2009. Mattias played bass and Ricky played drums together in a band called ‘Somehow’ and became good friends there. Mattias was later introduced to Johan when it was time to ressurect Silent Verdict after the band was put on hold. Our singer Mattias Kulas got to know the band when he joined in 2016.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Johan: Children of Bodom

Ricky: Lamb of God

Mattias G: Kreator

Mattias K: Slipknot

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Mattias Kulas: It is many things but my biggest inspiration as far as other lyric writers go,are Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Randy Blythe from Lamb ofGod. However my strongest inspiration comes from the songs themselves, they often give me an emotion that I want to explore with my writing and sometimes I can even picture a fictional story in my mind that I then try to solidify with the lyrics to a song

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was a local gig we did at a venuecalled Plan B in Tranås a small town an hour or so from where we live

7. Where would you like to act?

It would be really cool to play on some ofthe biggest stages in the world and also on festivals like Sweden Rock,Download, Rock Am Ring, Wacken and so on, anywhere bigger than ourlocal venues would be a good place to start

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Ricky: bands like Lamb of god, Metallica and Amon Amarth would be a dream for me.

9. Whom not?

Well we would say that all publicity is good publicity, We will play with anyone beacuse we love it.

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

We don’t know if anyone necessarily ever had stage fright but we’ve of course felt nervousness coupled with excitment! For us it becomes more like a high before going on stage and while performing. If you suffer from stage-fright the best tip is just to plan ahead as much as you can, practice a lot and don’t forget that the people that come to see you (hopefully) want to be there. The biggest critic is yourself, so just relax and take a few deep breaths and think that the worst thing that can happen is that you forget to turn on your amplifier or something then just continue with a big smile on your face! You’re not going to get lynched by the big crowd for small mistakes.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Our biggest inspirations are bands like Lamb of God, Arch Enemy and Kreator. We share a great passion for melodic parts coupled with raw and straight forward rhytms with some elements of thrash.

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

Shouting requests during a release fest to show our dicks haha!

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are the Best! It`s a really cool feeling when you get on stage and you see all these fans cheering for you! They have also shown us great support whenever we’ve played live or dropped new songs.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s very easy to navigate and a great go-to place for metalheads that want to find new bands while getting a little backstory.

15. Something to add?

Thanks for feauturing us on your site and stay tuned for our coming full-length album 30.04.2021!
