This is a new interview with the Metal band STEELBOURNE from Denmark. 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?

Steelbourne is a wordplay on Stillborn, while also including Steel which is an old cliché if you play anything remotely close to power metal, so we had a good laugh about that when deciding on the name. That said, we are very happy with the name – and being bourne, or carried by steel is quite representative of our music. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We all grew up listening to Maiden, Priest, Accept, and Helloween. All of us have played other genres prior to, or in parallel, but the classic heavy metal is incredibly fun to play due to its open-ended and freedom to play around/improvise, which is something we all like to do – Live in particular.

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

Jacob (guitar), Benjamin(bass), and Troels (vocals) have been playing together for the past 10 years under a different name. We even had Simon (guitar) with us as a stand-in for a german tour, so yeah we are pretty familiar with each other.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Jacob: Iron Maiden

Troels: Judas Priest 

Benjamin: Immortal

5. Where was your last gig?

Steelbourne was a lockdown project, finishing unwritten material for our previous band (Savage Machine). We toured a lot with Savage Machine, but to this date, Steelbourne has not played live yet.

6. Where would you like to act?

We would love to play Sweden Rock, Hellfest, Wacken, and Bloodstock.

7. Whom would you like to feature with?

That’s a tough question. We supported Dragonforce, In Flames, Amorphis and Artillery in the past. There are so many great bands out there – but supporting Iron Maiden would probably be the crown jewel!

8. Who not?

If the band plays well and treat people well – we’re not hating on anyone.

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

I think every aspiring musician has suffered from some level of stage fright at some point. We still have it when approaching the larger venues. We played Wacken in 2018 with our previous band and man that causes some serious jitters compared to the regular club show. I think the key is to not view as something negative by channeling it into focus. Being slightly nervous is a good thing, it makes you sharp – but we’re all here to have fun, so don’t let fear ruin that!

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

I think Iron Maiden has been the biggest influence on the songwriting itself, then each member to their own in terms of perfecting technique.

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

I don’t think the answer would be appropriate to put in writing.

12. What do you think of your fans?

Writing music for ourselves is fun. Writing music that is appreciated by fans make everything worthwhile. It is the main driver!

13. What do you think of our site?

One of the main issues with the Social Media/playlist age that we live in is that people rarely seek new music out on their own. How could they? Spotify’s machine learning and all the algorithms keep blasting them with surefire hits – and that special time of sitting down with a new album, putting it on and listening from start to finish, very few people do that anymore, which is a shame. Your job of directing people’s attention to the bands they love, or perhaps never heard of before is such a tremendously important task. Your site rocks!

14. Something add?

We’re working on new material and we are planning tours for Autumn/winter 22’. If you have the contacts, primarily around Germany, give us a shout!
