Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: TEMTRIS


We have had the opportunity to interview the Metal band TEMTRIS from Australia. 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? 

We wanted a name that sounded female fronted. The Temptress was an evil black winged Angel and it suited what we were going for soundwise. We decided to change the spelling and make it our own as temptress has been used before.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

We all love music but metal music is powerful, moving and full of emotion. Nothing beats playing metal live and the amazing feeling you get back from the audience for playing it.

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

Genevieve and Anthony Fox went to school together. Genevieve joined Fox's first band at 14 years old to sing. They started Temtris in their 20's and have never looked back.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

Anthony Fox - Flotsam and Jetsam

Genevieve - Iron Maiden / Death

Nick Wilks - Yngwie Malmsteen

Nadi Norouzian - Dream Theater

Nicholas Bolin - Metallica

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

We are always writing but when it comes to albums we like to have a concept or a theme to help with the construction of the music's emotion and song structure.

6. Where was your last gig? 

We played a Sydney venue called the Crowbar, on our Ritual Warfare tour, just before we went into lockdown from COVID in Australia

7. Where would you like to act? 

We would love to get to the UK or Europe into the festival circuit. 70,000 tones of metal looks like a lot of fun too.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Nick would love to play with Sonata Arctica. Fox with Flotsam and Jetsam. Genevieve with Primal Fear .

9. Whom not?

We don't really mind who we play with. We put on our own show regardless.

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

Genevieve is always nervous before a show. Especially if there has been no time to warm up vocally. Take a break before your about to hit the stage if there is time to talk to your crew and get ready for the show.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Bands that continue to push on and have never given up such as Flotsam and Jetsam. Artists who inspire our drummer Nicholas, are Stratovarius, Avantasia, Richie Sambora and Volbeat... Genevieve loves how Doro Pesch has kept going for such a long and successful career

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

Genevieve has had the usual inappropriate requests. We have had fans ask to come back to our houses that we have never met before.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

Our fans are our family and we love spending time with them to chat and have a few drinks with after a show. A lot of our fans have become very close friends.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your site is very cool. So great to see media companies bringing news and interviews of bands from around the world to the public. Without sites like yours we could not reach such a large audience.

15. Something to add?

Ritual Warfare is our latest album available through Wormholedeath records or @www.temtris.com Come say hello to us after a show if you get the chance. Horns up to you all
