Interviews: DisasterTheory

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Nu-Metal band, DisasterTheory from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band 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’s been a name that we have bounced around a bit for quite a while. We came up with it a long time ago as friends but never thought to actually use the name until the band formed in 2019.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Each member really grew up on metal and the transition into nu-metal just seemed natural to us. We love the groove of it and love combining our influences into something we hope is pleasant to listen to.

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

We all knew each other for over 10 years before forming DisasterTheory. We were all in other bands at the time we met and became friends.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

There is quite a lot to mention but there are quite a few that we share and it would be easier and shorter to name those. We are huge fans of Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Korn, and Deuce

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

To be honest, most of our music is about personal experiences. From excitement to pain, we tend to write about all of those things without much reserve. We are inspired by the life and the life of others, their adversities, happiness, joys, and heartaches.

6. Where was your last gig?

We formed near the end of 2019, right as the pandemic was hitting full swing. While we were gearing up for a small tour, the pandemic almost immediately hindered it. So we began focusing more on writing and recording and never got to do our first live show yet. This is something we are planning now, however.

7. Where would you like to act?

It would have to be the bedroom.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Features are something that is almost an afterthought for us. If an opportunity presents itself that is beneficial, adds something to the song, and makes sense, that’s typically the direction we will go. If we had to choose one, it would probably be someone like Mike Shinoda. He’s a phenomenal producer and artist.

9. Whom not?

That’s a pretty rough one. We are pretty diverse in our music tastes. So it would be difficult to exclude any artists as all of them would bring something to the table I’m sure.

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

That’s something I don’t think any of us have suffered from, to be honest. We tend to have a different mindset when it comes to that. We look at it from the perspective that the fans already know what you look like and sound like. They’re there to see you because they already like you. Then there is the fact that we are all human. We make mistakes. We have good days and bad days but most fans also understand this. So it tends to eliminate the fear of standing and performing in front of them

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

We are pretty diverse and the list is long. Ranging from Johnny Cash to Slipknot and from RunDMC to Linkin Park (yes we are that diverse). We have an appreciation for all types of music and a respect for the cultures that give birth to the various genres.

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

A fan had once asked our singer for a bite of his food. Can you imagine the awkwardness? Mark offered to just buy the guy food. The guy said “it wouldn’t be the same.” Mark responded with “yeah…for either of us.”

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fan base is very important to us. We genuinely love them all for their loyalty and the effort they put into us. They give us the energy and drive to give back to them just as much. They’re like our extended family and we go out of our way to let them know. In fact, we often check in on some of them personally to make sure they’re doing ok.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your site is very informative and a breath of fresh air for those of us that love metal. 

15. Something to add?

We are very appreciative of the work you guys do and grateful for the opportunity to speak with you. We hope we don’t suck too much and get more opportunities to speak with you in the future.
