Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Six Hundred Cuts


We have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metal band Six Hundred Cuts from the USA. 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 come out just like that?

When we were shooting our first music video as a young band for a demo track, the videographer sent us the final copy and said “I think I’ve got about six hundred cuts in this thing, but that’s the video!” And we said “I think you just named our band.”

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We have both loved metal since our adolescence, and as we got older, we found ourselves attracted to the progressive and experimental elements of metal more and more.

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

We actually met in the Houston rock and metal scene playing in different bands. We became even closer friends during the time I filled in on bass for Mitch’s first band, Myliam.

4. Each band member's favourite band?

Mitch’s favorite band of all time is Meshuggah, and mine is a tough tie between Periphery and Architects.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

It’s difficult to say what the ultimate source of our inspiration is, but musically we just have so many ideas that we just feel like we have to put somewhere, otherwise they just keep bouncing around in our heads. Lyrically, I draw inspiration from politics, world events, and personal experiences!

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was at The Secret Group in Houston, but as I write this, we are on the road to our first show of this tour with Lucid Awakening, in Tulsa, OK.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would love to perform at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands Texas. That is kind of the holy grail of venues in The Houston area. Outdoor, massive capacity, and just a great atmosphere.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We would love to perform with Dayseeker, they are a band we both have just discovered, and we have absolutely fallen in love with their music.

9. Whom not?

I would never say never, but I just can’t imagine us sharing the stage with any country artists. Haha

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

I personally feel like everybody gets stage fright to some degree, the same way I would get nervous before missions in Afghanistan. You just have to practice and commit everything to muscle memory, and trust that you can do what you have to do, then just let your body do the work!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

I feel like that’s such a long list, but the top four I feel would be Tesseract, Periphery, Architects, and The Plot In You.

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

I just recently had a concertgoer ask us how we had preprogrammed our light show, and after the conversation, they asked for more detailed information so they could write a college paper on it!

13. What do you think of your fans?

I think anyone that enjoys our music, has an open mind, and enjoys being introduced to new ideas, testing their own beliefs and preconceptions.

14. What do you think of our site? 

Breathing the Core is such a valuable asset to the independent music community. I think anyone who helps search for the diamonds in the musical rough and shine a light on them, is deserving of our thanks!

15. Something you'd like to add?

Our new record and music video just dropped this month, so make sure you guys and gals check that out and come hang with us on the road this coming year!
