Interviews: Voidemolition

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metalcore band 
Voidemolition from Germany. 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?

When we founded the band, we wanted something special as a name. We immediately came up with the topic of “void”, the nothingness, a dark and mystic thing. We wanted to combine it with a more classical metal vibe, so we added “demolition”, with the idea that we demolish the void by filling it with music. And just to spice things up we decided that both words shall merge at the “d” which they are sharing now. And for better pronunciation we declared that the “e” remains silent, so it is spoken “void’molition”

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Most of our band members really dig metalcore, deathcore and hardcore. But we also have a lot of other influences like progressive or even old-school heavy, thrash or death. We want to create music that doesn’t stick to one genre but still lives from modern vibes. It is the music we love and the music we would love to listen to by other artists.

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

No. Everyone who joined the band came as a completely new person. But we grew as a close family! Now it is like we had known each other from the start.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Richard – Callejon

Dom – Kiss

Dave – Bury Tomorrow

Timo – Trivium

Björn – Jinjer

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

First, we want to create music we’d like to listen to. There is a certain urge to express ourselves. We take inspiration from our idols and create our very own imagination of music. We try to be modern but with a twist in style so that we create something that separates from most other modern bands. For lyrics we focus on emotional topics. Things and situations a lot of people can relate to and feel the same. For example, our upcoming album deals with many facets of mental health.

6. Where was your last gig?

It was a small private concert in Rheinbrohl, Rheinland-Pfalz. Very intimate, very close to the fans. It was awesome!

7. Where would you like to play?

Oh, there are a lot of places. We would love to play on smaller German festivals to begin with. But the big ones are our dreams. Summer Breeze, Rock am Ring, Wacken! And we would love to visit other countries like the UK, America, Russia and more!

8. Who would you like to support?

Bury Tomorrow, Bleed From Within, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Jinjer, Wage War, Periphery, Bullet for my Valentine

9. Who not?

As far as it is metal or a sub-genre, we really do not draw a line. But we are not keen on supporting acts from other genres since that would not make a lot of sense.

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

Every one of us was a little nervous at the beginning. So many people watching you as you try to give your best. The best way to overcome stage fright is to enjoy your time on stage. Don’t think of it as an exam but as a party with friends! Maybe focusing on your music and getting into a trance-like state can help, too. 

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Our favorite bands had a great impact on us. The greatest impact came from Trivium, Bury Tomorrow and Avenged Sevenfold. They shaped the core of Voidemolition.

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

After a successful gig a fan came to our singer Dave and asked for the t-shirt he wore. When Dave enters the stage he escalates like an animal, resulting in a lot of sweat. So, the t-shirt was soaked in sweat. Yet, the fan still insisted on buying that exact shirt.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are fantastic. They are friendly and peaceful and always take care that no one gets hurt during our concerts. They support us so much and we can’t thank them enough!

14. What do you think of our site?

You look like a decent and professional news site for heavy music. Your posts seem like they are right on the spot, no unnecessary stuff, just exactly what is needed if you want to be informed about a new single, an album or updates on bands.

15. Something to add?

We can’t think of something. But we want to say that we are massively grateful four your time! Thank you so much for having us!
