Interviews: State Of Collision

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Hardcore/Metal/Punk band State Of Collision, from Sweden. Check out this band because they are amazing and do not forget to follow them in their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

Before we started this band we actually had a joke band, not really taking anything serious. That band was called Sons Of Cleavage. Of course we’d already printed something with letters S O C on it and when we decided to take our music more serious we wanted to keep S O C for short. So later on when we looked at our musical influences we laughed at how different they were, they collided, we were in a State Of Collision.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

What genre? We’ve actually tried to get some help placing our music in a genre, but never gotten a straight answer. I know most bands are trying to be original and have their own sound, and without looking for it, I think we found something. Honestly we tried to sound like other bands, but never really could, our musical differences made us play our own thing. We call it Punk Metal.

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

More or less, friends having fun, drinking beers, wanting to play music, talks about starting a band, that type of story. But we didn’t stop at talking, we started a band and went with it.

4. Each band member favourite band?

As I’m doing a Mötley Crüe tattoo this month I have to say them, they are the reason I got into music in the first place. Otherwise I use to say that it’s a three way tie between them, Metallica and Guns n Roses. Asking the other guys they would say Social Distortion, Cock Sparrer and Nirvana. Differences are good.
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Everything! Everywhere is a new place to be inspired of something. Our music is often written from some kind of melody in someones mind, could have gotten from anywhere, a storm with heavy rain and thunder, sooner or later you start to hear a beat or a rhythm in it. When it comes to lyrics I usually write about something I can feel and relate to, no matter if it’s personal or world wide news. Even though I like and enjoy easy listening music that’s just there for the fun of it, I can’t help but that I want a voice, and I want it to be heard, through music I can do that.

6. Where was your last gig?

We played in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia last night.

7. Where would you like to act?

Anywhere with a good crowd is a good place to play! But reading all those rockstar biographies really makes you want to go to USA, playing the same places that made them when they where nothing. 

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Lemmy Kilmister, may he rest in peace. What a legend. Never really thought about it before, have to get back to you with that one.

9. Whom not?

Same thing here. If you’re open enough I think you can make any collaboration work. Personally I think it would be cool to work with a rapper for something, I mean, Rage Against The Machine.

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

We’ve discussed this and everyone has had some sort of stage fright, nothing severe, but of course we have all felt like you just want to disappear when stand infront of people. But then again, that’s normal, and all you can do is to just push through, do it, enjoy it, love to be on stage, ‘cause it get’s better and when it does, nothing compares to it.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?  

Too many to start listing here, but start with the mentioned bands in question 4 and you will have a great starting point. But as a genre the Skate Punk genre is to big not to mention, growing up and playing along to Blink 182, Green Day and Sum 41. If you listen closely you can find all of them and more in our music.

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

I know this one time in Krakow when a girl told Andreas that he played the guitar very well and wondered how he got that good. Don’t think he’ll ever shut up about it.

13. What do you think of your fans?  

We love our fans! It’s like football, without fans football is nothing. Sure, you can always play in the yard with your friends and have the time of your life. Same thing with music, we can have a blast playing in the rehearsal room or at home, but when you want to take it to the live stage it’s never fun to play without any audience. You really want your fans there with you, connecting with them, sharing their feelings, it’s a great feeling we don’t take for granted.  

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s a cool site, always great to se sites taking care of smaller bands and helping them to find new fans and making new connections.

15. Something to add?

Thank you for letting us be a part of your site and hope we can feature again sometime.
