Interviews: Eternal Closure

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metalcore band, Eternal Closure 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 planned it or came out just like that?

It was a team effort many, many years ago. We all came together with a few ideas we all brought. One of my ideas was Eternal Closure. I would lie if I said its meaning is any deeper than just “it sounded cool”, but I like the many ways it can be interpreted and its paradox of it.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We kinda sucked at first, so the idea was to cover simpler metalcore tracks and just see what happens afterward. We played songs by Atreyu, Asking Alexandria, and A Day to Remember. Stuff that was on the easier side but was super fun to play. When I brought the first batch of songs I wrote for the band, it was definitely in that vein. It slowly transitioned into the more progressive, heavier, and more technical metal sound we have now.

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

Most of the lineup has changed since it officially became Eternal Closure, and the only member I knew before all of this was definitely my brother Philippe on the drums (obviously). And when the band started, it was Carlos who brought me in. We knew each other from school.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

I don't know if these are absolutely their favorites, but here's a band I know they love.

Myself: Dream Theater

Kat: Gorguts

Phil: August Burns Red

Marine: Hypno5e

Jonathan: Iron Maiden

Philippe: Periphery

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

I get inspired by listening to other music almost all the time. Sometimes what I will do is mimic a section from a song I love and make it in my own style. When I'm not doing that, I usually mindlessly jam with my guitar until I find something I like, and then I build on top of that. And then when I present what I have to the band, they help me figure out the little details to make it the best it can be.

6. Where would you like to act?

If by that you mean play shows, I think we're not that difficult in general. We'd like to play everywhere we haven't already. Of course, there are exceptions to this, like maybe it's not the best time to go play in Russia right now haha.

7. Whom would you like to feature with?

We'd love to play with the bands that inspired us to be here in the first place and that fit the music we play. Killswitch Engage and August Burns Red would probably be a sick lineup to go out on tour with. 

8. Whom not?

Not here to throw anybody under the bus haha. But I guess bands that don't play in the vast realm of rock music and bands that have a reputation for being terrible people. Other than that, I don't see a good reason for us not to want to play with anybody.

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

I know Kat in particular is quite shy on stage, but she's a bit inexperienced playing live compared to the rest of the band. The only thing one can do is to get on stage as much as one can. In one word, Practice. There is so miracle solution outside of that.

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

The bands that first made me want to emulate them and write my own music were Killswitch Engage, Avenged Sevenfold, and Lamb of God. I still have that in my writing's DNA for sure. The first band that made me love music was probably Linkin Park, and the bands that made me want to become a better musician were Rush and Dream Theater.

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

Our fans are mostly pretty chill so far haha. Nobody that follows us and comes to our show really does anything that's weird or out of place. There was this girl once, I don't know if you'd consider her a fan, but she tried to “get some” with most of the band after one of our shows. Since we were all already either taken or not interested, she sadly ended her night alone. But it wasn't for a lack of trying! 

12. What do you think of your fans?

They suck I hate them. Boooooo. Seriously though, as much as I enjoy writing and playing music for myself, it really really isn't the same as other people telling you they love it. I know some bands like to say they only play music for themselves, but that's not me. If we end up making an album people hate, I would probably be devastated. Fans are everything, even if sometimes they can seem unfair.

13. What do you think of our site?

We had an interview with you guys a few ago and we appreciate the opportunity to be back here again. Always a pleasure to be back on a site that features so many cool artists.

14. Something to add?

Please check out our new album, “At The Center of it All – Chapter I”, out on September 23 rd. We've already released our first two singles, Practice What You Preach and Exiled. Check these out and tell us what you think! One is the fast heavy banger, and the other one is the more progressive melodic track. It's going to give you a great idea of what's to come!
