Interviews: The Fire Rising

This is a new interview with the Metal/Metalcore/Hard Rock band The Fire Rising from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on his FACEBOOK PAGE

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

Founding members Morgan and Aryan (former drummer) just left a stalled music project when they decided to start The Fire Rising. This band came to be during a dark time in the world in late 2020, so we sought out to rise above the challenges in front of us by fighting adversity and the difficult issues that face us in life by using the power within. This overall captures the meaning and motivation behind our band name.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Hard Rock, Metalcore, Heavy Metal, Industrial Metal, and all associated genres that fall in this group are simple to most exciting genres to create with and produce the rawest and high-energy live performances in our opinion. We all have a long history of writing, producing, and performing in bands and collaborations within these genres so it felt natural for us to collectively keep that tradition of finding new ways to write good heavy music.

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

Craig and Brad knew each other from their previous band, Morgan and Aryan obviously started it together, and Aryan connected through Wren from a mutual friend who heard about auditions. Morgan and Aryan held multiple auditions and Brad, Craig, and Wren naturally fit into what the band was trying to ultimately achieve on a personal level and musically.

4. Each band member's favorite band(s)?

Morgan: My personal top three are Rage Against the Machine, Northlane, KSE 

Brad: Tool, Ghost, Nirvana

Wren: I have a lot of variety in what I listen to but probably my top 3 are The Mountain Goats, Judas Priest & Against Me!

Craig: Iron maiden, Children Of Bodom, Symphony X

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We wrIte songs for our own enjoyment and take inspiration from our favorite bands and each other. So it's always a huge bonus that fans enjoy our work too. 

6. Where was your last gig?

Seattle, WA at Jules Maes in late April 2022. We are currently writing and producing our next album while prepping for more shows and tours in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

7. Where would you like to act?

Truthfully, just about anywhere on this planet.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Ghost and In Flames would be great acts to open for.

9. Who not?


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

Our biggest piece of advice for getting past stage fright is to not separate yourself on stage from the audience. If you focus too much on your performance, you might play well, but it won’t be as enjoyable an experience for you or them. You’re there to fill a role, but everyone’s there to have a good time. If you try and have fun without worrying too much about the performance the audience will respond in kind. Experience and practice help. Don’t stop putting yourself out of your comfort zone. Soon it becomes easy.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Brad: I’m inspired by bands that create new, unique experiences with their music, either through recording or live, that can connect to many listeners. I’d have to say Nirvana has had a huge influence on my life and musical career. Kurt Cobain crafted a stark new sound that struck hard and fierce into mainstream culture and changed rock music forever. For this reason, I learned the guitar which has shaped my life and art ever since.

Morgan: The bass players from In Flames and Rage Against the Machine really inspire me and my sound. And I have many industrial rock inspirations of course. 

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

We haven't gotten to that point yet, only a matter of time!

13. What do you think of your fans?

We’ve been very lucky to have found loyal followers of our band. We think they’re awesome! They connect to our music, an artistic extension of ourselves, so there is a natural bridge between the fans and the band members. People come up to us after our shows and we have great conversations and make real friendships. It’s something we’ve never experienced before in our musical careers, and we dig it.
