Interviews: Fall Of Stasis

We have had the opportunity to interview the Metal band Fall Of Stasis 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 plan it or came out just like that?

Sergei: Sergei and Gabriel had a project that was stalling, and Sergei decided to quit the band. When Gabriel approached him to come back with a new line-up, they decided that they would no longer be messing around and wasting their time. The name Fall of Stasis represents that desire to keep moving forward, while also wanting to stand out from the crowd with original music. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Jessica: It never occurred to us to pick a specific genre, and that’s why our music is so eclectic. Each members’ musical taste heavily influenced the final product, and we intend to keep it that way for future releases. 

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

Gabriel: Sergei and Gabriel are the last two founding members of the band, and they had known each other for several years prior to that. All the other members were recruited either via online ads or through acquaintances in the local metal community. 

4. Each band member favourite band?

Mathieu: Protest the Hero

Jessica: Lorna Shore

Mélissa: Opeth

Tristan: Finntroll

Gabriel: Mr. Bungle

Sergei: Wintersun (ask us the same question next week and you’ll get a completely different answer!)

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Tristan and Gabriel: It usually starts with a very vague idea of what the song should sound like (fast and heavy, slow and folky, etc.) and we take it from there. We’re also not ashamed to say that our writing process is greatly affected by some of our favorite artists, even though we always make it a point to stay authentic. 

6. Where was your last gig?

Mathieu: Our last gig was at a small venue in Montreal named “Le Petit Campus”. This show featured exclusively female-fronted metal bands and it was quite a blast. That was at the beginning of March 2019, so we’re glad that we got to get the last gig in before everything shut down. 

7. Where would you like to act?

Either Hellfest or Wacken, probably like most emerging metal bands! We would also love to play some of the great music festivals we have here in Montreal such as Heavy MTL and Rockfest (R.I.P).

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Will Ramos from Lorna Shore, definitely! (Jessica)

Rody Walker from Protest the Hero! (Mathieu)

Gabriel and Sergei: David Gilmour? David Gilmour.

9. Whom not?

Sergei: Nobody; if we don’t like them we’d still love to feature with them ironically. 

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

Mélissa: It happens every once in a while, but you just have to remind yourself that people don’t want to see a perfect performance. Being reasonably prepared and focusing on having fun gives me what it takes to push through stage fright. 

Gabriel: Of course, but doing warm-up exercises and clearing my head usually does it. 

Mathieu: Yes but it gets much better and better with every show, just push through it and you’ll be fine eventually. 

Tristan: Yes. Alcohol. 

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Wintersun was a huge influence because of their use of orchestrations. Black Dahlia Murder was the main influence with their signature high-pitched black metal vocals.

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

Jessica: Threesomes. The answer will always be no, by the way. A fan asked me for an autograph but we didn’t have a pen, so he asked for my footprint instead. I stomped on the setlist with my dusty, alcohol-drenched boots and he went on his way. 

13. What do you think of your fans?

Considering that it took us about 5 years to come up with a first album, we salute our fans for being so patient. Thanks for sticking with us guys.

14. What do you think of our site?

We like the visual and the content looks promising as well. You’re also obviously being generous to emerge bands; we appreciate it.

15. Something to add?

To our fans: you’ve waited for so long, what’s one more month? To people who don’t know us: We can’t pretend that our music will appeal to everyone, but it’s safe to say that it’s probably quite different from what you’ve heard before. Check it out, you might be pleasantly surprised!
