Interviews: In Fear Of Healing

In this new occasion we have had the opportunity to interview the  Metalcore band In Fear Of Healing from UK. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

It more just came out like that, we had been jamming for a little bit and decided we wanted to make it more official and so the name just came about as a placeholder that stuck.    

2.Why did you want to play this genre?        

This is a hard one to answer, our genre varies a fair amount due to the large range of inspirations we each have. Our middle ground more comes from the fact that we don't want to be outright heavy and brutal but we don't wanna be like pop-punk or anything too light as we aren't in it to make as much as possible but more to spread our music and inspire as many people as possible. It's also a brilliant genre for developing each of our techniques, especially for drums and guitar.   

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

More or less, we all go to college together so we're known each other from there but some of us have known each other longer than others.  

4. Each band member favorite band?       

Cuba, our vocalist - My true favorite has to be Killswitch Engage, especially the Daylight Dies album. That album got me into this kind of music and inspired me to pursue it. That said, at the moment I'm listening to Crystal Lake religiously.   

Ed and Bryn, our guitarists - We've never really had a favourite      

Harvey, our drummer - Avenged Sevenfold  

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?      

In terms of the instrumental parts, it's just fun - I (cuba) do most of the songwriting at the moment as we do all of our production and mixing, mastering, etc at my home studio so it just makes it easier to work that way. We certainly share ideas and things while we jam as well though. We've also got great in jokes about how our drummer Harvey is gunna lose his legs because the kick drum parts are just too fast and insane on most of the songs. In terms of lyrics, as much as writing lyrics to sound cool is great - I'm not very good at it - so I tend to just write from my out thoughts and feelings towards certain situations in my own life, which tend to end up coming out as negative emotions; music is definitely a good way to vent negative energy in a positive way and potentially using it to have a positive impact on someones life. It always helps listening to new music and learning new techniques as well because it inspires us to incorporate those techniques into our own music. It's a joy to express ourselves through our music.  

6. Where was your last gig?      

Because we're a new band, we haven't really done any gigs yet, we're still just ironing out the performance and the setlist - despite this, we're aiming to have our first gig be around August in Worcester UK  

7. Where would you like to act?      

It's a real dream of a venue but Wembley Stadium in the UK would be an amazing show to play. That along with festivals like the Rock AM Ring in Germany and maybe Impericon as well.  

8. Whom would you like to feature with?       

Killswitch definitely, that would be awesome. Veil of Maya as well, probably AX7 too. I think we have a lot of bands and artists that we'd want to play with or have be on our records. Bands like Polyphia, Fall of Troy and CHON would be a fun one to go along side as well.  

9. Whom not?       

Bands like Meshugga, I think we just feel they're too heavy in the wrong sort of way for our taste - that's not to say they aren't a good band in their own rights though.  

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

I think we've all probably suffered stage fright at some point in our lives. Certainly for me, the best way to overcome that is to just get out there and do it, try to stop thinking about it and just have a fun time because the more time you spend up on stage, the less you're gunna worry about doing it. We think that it's always best to make sure you come prepared, bring all your gear, make a checklist so that you don't forget anything, it just gives you less things to worry about in the moment; If you're enjoying it, so are the audience.  

11. What bands have inspired you the most?       

Veil Of Maya, Crystal Lake and Novelists mostly I think for this EP. In terms of the style of riffs and general mix we were going for on the record those three are definitely the core but other bands like Erra and Scintilla have really had an influence on riffs and the style of songs. In general though, there are just too many bands to count!  

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

Like I mentioned earlier, we're still a new band and so our fanbase isn't quite big enough for fan questions or requests yet.  

13. What do you think of your fans?       

Despite our fanbase only being small, we love and respect each and every one of them. It really means the would that people are listening to our music, like we're only 16-18 years old and the fact that there are people out there who enjoy listening to our music and the things that we're doing means the world to all of us. I personally wish it was easier to reach out to fans so that we could get closer to them as people and not just a band.  

14. What do you think of our site?      

I think it's great! It's a really good service you offer for new musicians like ourselves. The layout and presentation of it all is really nice and I can't say a bad word about it.  

15. Something to add?      

We can't thank everyone enough for all the support and love that we've gotten through the process of creating and releasing this first EP 'Tradition'. We hope to see as many of you as possible at our first gigs in the summer and we hope that we can inspire as many people to push for what they want even when the going gets tough. We're currently down a bassist but we're still pushing to make it happen and to take this group as far as we possibly can.
