Interviews: I Was Born Twice

We have had the opportunity to interview the Deathcore band I Was Born Twice from Poland. 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 there! So it wasn't planned, it just get out from life. Nearly 10 years ago I faced maligant cancer, and after first surgery everything was changed. I lost my voice, and all my life flipped out. All of this history you can hear at my youtube channel, but all in all it ended up for me rejecting the diagnosis, deny my medical state, and take a turn in my life just to survive, for all the cost.... so I did... I was reborn in the same body... I Was Born Twice ;)

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

All my life I was raised by my parents to be trash metal guitarist, Slayer or Sepultura. Then in my school years I discovered Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit and from that moment NuMetal was my thing for years but I was always open to new stuff, playing in MirrordeaD for years. After getting sick, and having a break from music due to my condition I remember when I was with my dad at the Suicide Silence show in Cracov, in 2012... I knew their albums, not loved in that moment (now I do haha) but listened few times before buying the tickets. Yet - it was the first time we saw deathcore music on live show, and that energy, wow... people were nuts there! When Emmure hit the stage with the first bass drop and breakdown, I loved it so much, that I got soaked into this music in the second. I got back home and deep inside I knew, that my love for NuMetal will be now mixed with Metalcore and Deathcore... this is how it started and this is how it got me here to this point.

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

Yes and now :) I met Jerry back in the former band years, he was having a practice room beside mine. Somehow we started talking, jamming and then played for few years together, to the band fall apart. We didn't talk for years... after time he helped me a lot, as we buried the battle axe between us, and got a fresh start when he replaced my former drummer on the tour when he guy left the band 3 weeks before the first planned show. Tomek showed up on facebook comment section, out of nowhere, saying "you're from my hometown? how could I not know you before? I could play with you if you're having a free spot" - and accidentally - we had haha :D Maciek was recommended by my friend - we didn't know each other, never seen in person not talked much, and when he appeared on a practice session, coming by train 250km, knowing all the material in the first approach... he had to stay, professionalism, and a great guy with charisma I couldn't not like 

4. Each band member favourite band?

For me: Slayer and Emmure

Jerry: Korn and Deftones

Maciek: Enter Shikari and Lindemann 

Tomek: Dream Theater and Born of Osiris

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Life and what it takes to be alive in these times... this short sentence explains literally every song I was working on. 

6. Where was your last gig? 

We played in our capital, Warsaw, where we met a lot great musicians and fans there. I hope they are all well! 7. Where would you like to act? 7. Wherever we're wanted! My main goal for now is to play at Spodek in my country, which was my dad's dream. Picking place on the all world I'd love to play on Madison Square Garden.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Ahh, that could be the list for few pages and I don't think you have that much space for us haha :D We respect all the bands that can handle these times, and we'd love to play with all of them, counting legendary bands aswell as modern rising stars or even pop artists - we don't care how it would look like or sound like. Music generes are overrated, all in all matters how the artists perform their act and if their music is well made. We wouldn't have problem for supporting Backstreet Boys... damn, I'd love to do that!

9. Whom not? 

Rich kids thrash talkers... and only them... I hate them personally, you know who I'm talking about - every city have those local douchebags that don't count in the industry at all. They form a bands to "destroy us", "show us our place", "get more views on yt" bla bla bla... I survived tons of them before and will survive doing my thing for another decades for sure. My tiktok account have more views than them ffs xD We don't have to prove anything to people with shitty ambitions, posers and "famewannabies". We won't waste time and effort, we're better than that, and we rather make music, not empty thrash talks with kids with no experience of life, and life is a bitch that will place them on the ground sooner or later.

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

All of us. Head up, practise, feel the stage and the tension... If even one person came to see you performing - you're the winner, they came for you, so you just go there and do what you're supposed to, enjoy every moment of that! 11. What bands have inspired you the most? 11. Linkin Park I think with the Hybrid Theory and Meteora albums. Mixing metal, rap and electonics as no one ever before... that was something, that was a gamechanger. We should all take a lesson in that, experiment with the sound, with the compositions and music, and that's what music should be about!

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

There was few moments when I considered "too much for me" and first thing that comes to my mind... once one guy, around 50 yo, came to me after the show, and wanted to buy my shirt... I showed him our merch, and he was like "no man, I want your shirt". Literally, sweated, soaked shirt that was on me at the show... He offered me a lot of money for that but I rejected it anyway. I really hope he was meant to wash it and put it on wall as an artifact... not doing things I've seen on japanesse internet... let drop that subject at this point please xD

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Great people, open and tolerant. That means a lot for us! Every person that listen to our music, supports us, sharing our stuff is welcomed and should feel free to write to us. If we can help somehow we always will! That's how we got into some charity funds and auctions in the past. Share the love!

14. What do you think of our site?

You're keeping the stage alive, promoting bands and metal industry - all of us salute you with all our hearts! We need people like you in this community! 

15. Something to add?
