Interviews: Padra

This is a new interview with the Thrash Metal band Padra from Israel. Check out the interview and follow the artist on his FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or came out just like that?

We were searching for names in the ancient Zoroastrian book "Avesta" and we found this name which means guardian of fire and we somehow felt that this is it!

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Because all of us were angry and outrageous young teenagers when we started the band, and whenever we held an instrument, we wanted to beat the shit out of it!   

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

Keyvan and Amir Ali knew each other before we became bandmates because they were neighbors   

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Ramtin: Black Sabbath  

Keyvan: Slayer 

Ahmad: Tool 

Amirali: Iron Maiden

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Before we started making music, every Iranian metal song with Persian vocals sounded like shit, they were all doing it wrong, so that was the biggest inspiration for us. We wanted to use Persian vocals on metal the right way, the way that nobody had done it before.  

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in Tehran; it was a great night, but after the show, we got banned and even threatened by some conservative websites related to the government, we weren't shocked by this actually we fooled them into getting the permission and they found out about it eventually.  

7. Where would you like to act?

We really love to go on a European tour it's like a dream for us. 

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Mille Petrozza, Alex Skolnick, Dave Lombardo, Steve Di Giorgio, Scott Ian  

9. Whom not?

Bring Me The Horizon 

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

10) Yeah, we were so stressed before our first show; besides the common stage fright, we had police fright as well, but when you stand in front of the audience as you hit the first note, all the stress will disappear. Always remember that the audience is here to enjoy their time, not criticize you.   

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Slayer, Kreator, Anthrax, and Testament  

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

Once there was a fan who asked us if he could come to our rehearsal, we said alright no problem, then he said I want to bring my girlfriend can you be polite in front of her? We said no man we can't avoid cursing each other when we practice! 

13. What do you think of your fans?

We think we might have the most dedicated fans among Iranian metal bands, whoever saw our show tells us that your fans are different they are crazy sick people who love you, we proud they are the only reason we still making music.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your site is amazing, even its name can relate to our ultimate goal, of uniting different countries which suffer the same problems, music can be a tool and a common language. 

15. Something add?

Thanks for doing the Interview!
