Interviews: Tyrants Of Chaos

This is a new interview with the Heavy Metal band Tyrants Of Chaos from Canada. Check out the entire interview and give them a follow on their FACEBOOK PAGE

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

The band name spawned from a brainstorming session. After tossing out a few names and ideas we settled on Tyrants Of Chaos. It wasn’t planned so I guess you could say it came out like that.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Everyone in the band is an “old school” metal head so naturally, we gravitate towards that genre. Everyone is well versed and listens to just about every genre under the sun, but I think metal presents the most significant challenge when it comes to actual playing. We all like to challenge ourselves musically so metal is a good fit. 

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

Lethbridge isn’t that big of a city yet has a large musician base so inevitably people in the music scene cross paths with each other. I think most of us knew one other in some way or another.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Phil: Way too many to name.

Curtiss: Tyrants of Chaos of course then it depends on my mood and the day of the week.

Ryan: Iron Maiden

Arik: Pantera

Sean: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Rush

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Our inspirations are most definitely taken from a wide range of people and things. Art can also be a reflection of reality, so I think a lot of our inspiration simply stems from reality and life itself.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last gig we played was at an outdoor festival just outside our hometown.

7. Where would you like to act?

Any big stage with a big crowd. We live for metal music.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Any big-name metal band would be a dream come true!

9. Who not?

I guess anyone in the pop genre, ha!

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

For some of us, I don’t think it really goes away, others must have nerves of steel, ha! When you’re about to hit the stage and perform in front of a large crowd I think it's natural to have that bit of nervousness or anxiety. Without trying to promote alcohol or drugs I would say the best way for a beginner to overcome that would just be to have confidence in yourself. If you’ve put in the time at the jammed hall to really nail your set, there’s no reason you can’t do that life. So, I think just having confidence in yourself is a good way to get over any stage fright.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

The list would be endless but to name a very short few….. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Pantera, Black Sabbath, The big 4 of thrash (American and German), Iced Earth, and all the amazing rock and metal bands from the UK, Canada, Germany, Brazil, Japan, USA, etc…

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

Curtiss had an experience where a fan asked him to meet her parents so they could get married!

13. What do you think of your fans?

Without fans, there would be no bands. Fans are everything. The fans inspire you to make music and make art. Music and art can heal people, it brings people together and lets us put aside our petty differences. It’s a beautiful symbiotic relationship.

14. What do you think of our site?

It's great! It's easy to navigate and has lots of great information about bands you may have never heard about otherwise! We have the utmost respect for anyone with that kind of passion for metal music to really put in the work to promote metal from around the world, to the world.

15. Something to add?

Just the massive amount of thanks we have for our fans, our readers, and our listeners. Without them, there would be no band. And to always support heavy metal. Metal never dies!
