Interviews: The Crown Remnant

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Melodic Metal band, The Crown Remnant 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 came out just like that?

The project was originally started with a co-writer back in 2016 based on the idea that most bands are a patchwork or "remains" of other bands, projects, and dreams. I always wanted TCR to be the redemption story of those musicians, the "final fantasy" as an honest, big shot to really create something special. As the project progressed into a solo venture, the name makes even more sense - being the last-standing musician that continues the hope.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I could just feel it in my bones! I never sat down to decide on a genre, I just wrote my heart out and hoped that others would listen. I've always gravitated toward melodic metal, with cinematic elements. As an amateur composer, I love the idea of string ensembles and symphonic elements within the music, and that plus sweet riffs created The Crown Remnant.

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

Originally the band was made up of strangers! We got together through Facebook ads and coincidental chances. Later on, some replacements were made with friends, or friends of friends, but at the end of the day, we decided to go our separate ways.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

We were originally influenced by a big list of bands that we all shared! Including groups like Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Dream Theater, Atreyu, and Bullet for My Valentine.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

I'm inspired by the idea that there's more out there to learn, more out there to explore, and that we all functionally have no idea what we're doing here on this planet.

6. Where was your last gig?

Tr!p Santa Monica!

7. Where would you like to act?

I would love to play at the Wiltern, it's got such a classy interior and cozy stage setup!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

It'd be cool obviously to play on stage or create a song with some of the greats like Metallica before they retired, but that's more than I could ask for.

9. Whom not?

Anyone that steals my sweet roll. I will not play a show with you if you steal my sweet roll.

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

Anxiety is all a part of the performance for me. It would honestly be weird not to be nervous, I think people understand that it's normal and in some ways, even very useful! For beginners, I wouldn't be looking for ways to squash stage fright - that often makes it worse. Instead, try to fully embrace it - you ARE going to be nervous, now how can you use that to your benefit? Practice all the details of your show - go crazy with it! The more you know what you're doing, the more that feeling will go away in the moment.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Modern bands like Ice Nine Kills have such a great live show, it's impossible not to be jealous of them! Other legacy bands like Atreyu continue through hurdles like losing band members and still put out killer albums, and I think that's really admirable. Devin Townsend has inspired me, along with Brendon Small, to realize that you CAN do it on your own.

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

One of my albums - why would you want that, you weirdo?

13. What do you think of your fans?

I love them - please keep listening and giving me a job to do, I'm hopeless without it.

14. What do you think of our site?

I like it! You guys have a lot of great acts to discover on your website.

15. Something to add?

Go listen to the new single "Horizon" today! It's got killer guitars, a sweet solo, and powerful vocals. I'll see you guys later this year for another release from The Crown Remnant, and in a few days for my new album REBIRTH!
