Interviews: Born Divided

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Melodic Death Metal band, Born Divided from Canada. 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 had “Divided” in mind because of the division we saw between human beings becoming more and more pervasive. During a meeting for the research of the name, I proposed Born Divided which was in connection with the division which often comes from the cradle. We all liked it and we adopted this group name for our band.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Metal is a style of music that comes from our early childhood… Once you have tasted the Metal style…. Difficult to want to listen and play something else. A style is so open and limitless that everyone can find what they are looking for and like something in this style. We compose precisely without setting barriers and limits and I believe that this is reflected in our compositions.

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

Yes, we had all played in different bands before. So when was the time to create Born Divided? I had a good idea of who I wanted to have in the band. There was only Maxim, the singer, whom we didn't know… But we were amazed by his talent from the first note.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Tommy Demers: Haken, Pink Floyd

Maxim Levesque: Opeth, Symphony X

Lucas Biron: Opeth, Rhapsody, Wintersun

Fred Bedard: Iron Maiden, Slayer, Pantera, At The Gates

Michael Beaudoin: Devin Townsend, Every Time I Die, Shadow of Intent, Propagandhi

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The inspiration for Born Divided compositions comes from all the metal we've listened to since childhood: Iron Maiden, Cannibal Corpse, Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Symphony X, and many others. Tommy Demers and Michael Beaudoin are the main composers for this album and they have been working since the end of the Blinded by Faith years to make the most of the composition and the experiences they have acquired with all these years in different groups.

6. Where was your last gig?

We have so far only done 1 show 1 month ago but we intend to do as much as possible in the province of Quebec to start and try to open up the international market as much as possible to us. The next show is scheduled for December 10 in Quebec at the Source of La Martinière with Nordheim, Upon Your Grave, and Eternal Closure!

7. Where would you like to act?

We would love to be able to play in Europe one day. But we will start by playing in the corner as much as possible and try to make a name for ourselves before dreaming of bigger rounds.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

I would love to do shows with Symphony X and Dimmu Borgir. Our style fits perfectly between its groups. But hey… We can dream, maybe one day?!

9. Whom not?

I don't have any bands I wouldn't like to tour with. I think it would be stupid to close doors because we don't like an artist... So, I would be ready to go with anyone on tour as long as this group can help our career progress!

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

No, we never had stage fright…. On the contrary, the pre-show stress allows us to boost ourselves, and when the first note is played…. All this stress leaves us and tries to give the best of ourselves. We have a lot of show experience with our old bands… At the moment we find the pre-show stress with our new project and I think it's great… We have to take advantage of this stress to try to be our best during the performance.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Iron Maiden is the band that influenced me the most during my youth. I discovered Cradle of Filth as a teenager…. And there uffff…. I was flabbergasted by the melodic and Thrash side of the band. So I would say that Cradle of Filth was the biggest influence on my songwriting. But today I'm not influenced by just one band but by all the bands and all the different styles that I've been listening to since I was little.

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

As we are on our first shows with Born Divided we haven't had any strange requests yet but I'm sure it will come in the next few years. I'll tell you about it next time!

13. What do you think of your fans?

I believe that above all I am not the person to judge who listens not to our music. I'm glad they like what we play. I'm glad we've unified people with our music. The division is so big today that the thing that we have to do is appreciate our fans and thank them.

14. What do you think of our site?

The site is very professional...The design is very neat. Really fun to see a pro site that highlights emerging bands. Good job Breathing The Core

15. Something to add?
