Interviews: Necessary Evil

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the  Alternative Metal/Electronic band, Necessary Evil from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their INSTAGRAM PROFILE

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

The first project’s name was created without any associations, we just picked up options and settled on what sounded good. When we had a need to change the name of the project, after much deliberation, we settled on Necessary Evil. It's the title of one of the popular Motionless in White songs that we both love to listen to. I think this song also served as a guide to our own style. We consider it quite modern and advanced. Music develops and changes, and new genres appear, but society is prone to conservatism and cannot always appreciate the new approach, so the name Necessary Evil characterizes us in the best possible way. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

This genre reflects everything I like to hear in music: interesting guitar riffs that create a groove; guitar solos written and played not to pay homage to the genre, but to tell a story without using words; synthesizer melodies that emphasize the atmosphere and mood of the composition; the addition of electronic instruments that can both relax the listener and energize him; and, of course, Violet and I like various kinds of experiments with music, which emphasize the breadth of our horizons and the ability to use any creative moves. I think that I managed to create my own sound and my own style, which will be recognizable against the background of other bands.

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

Yes, we knew each other. Our common dreams and ambitions united us into a strong creative partnership.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Cain: I'm a music lover and I like bands of completely different genres. My favorite bands are Avenged Sevenfold, Motionless in White, Hollywood Undead, Night Club, Shadow of Intent, Centhron, Rammstein.

Violet: I’m also a music lover. However, my preferences have changed over time. So now my favorite bands are: Motionless in white, Ice Nine Kills, Night Club, Tiamat.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Cain: I can be inspired by anything related to art. It can be music, not necessarily similar to what we do, films and series, computer games, or books. For example, our composition Last Party and its video were inspired by the computer game Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines.

Violet: I can be inspired by different stuff. Art, music, positive memories about my travels to different countries, and even social issues or psychological problems.

6. Where was your last gig?

So far, we are not concert musicians, but we would like to start soon. I think it will be as exciting as it is for everyone, but we are in the mood to light it up as it should be. The main thing is not to be afraid of mistakes, because the show must go on.

7. Where would you like to act?

First of all, we would like to perform in the United States. I think this is where creative life is in full swing. However, we are ready to perform anywhere and go anywhere, under adequate conditions of cooperation. We welcome all our listeners, wherever they are.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Cain: Every musician is my colleague in one way or another, so I'm ready to play with almost anyone, if it's interesting for both of us and if our view of music coincides at least in some way. If we talk about specific bands, I would like to perform with Motionless in White. I could name a few more bands, but I'm afraid that we have completely different music from them, and on the same stage it would look at least strange. I would also be interested in collaborating with Shadow of Intent because I hear a high level of composing skill in their tracks. 

Violet: I would definitely like to record a song with Chris Motionless. I really enjoy his vocals. Besides, I think we could make an interesting track because there are some similarities in our projects.

9. Whom not?

It is hard to say. It is unlikely that I would play together with those whose vision of music is very different from mine. However, I think this may not always depend only on my desire. Violet also shares my position on this issue.

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

We will soon find out. Meanwhile, I have my own vision of this situation: we are all living people who worry and make mistakes. This is fine. I think that people who come to a concert do not seek to evaluate you or your performance technique, they are not critics who expect mistakes from you to sort them out later. First of all, these are people who, on the contrary, came to support you and party at the same time, and you are just in a position to give them this. So just do what you can.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Cain: I think that the style of our project was primarily influenced by Motionless in White. It was this band that I heard some inclusion of electronic music among heavy guitar riffs, and I really liked the way it sounds. Solo guitar in my understanding should tell a story without words, and create and convey to the listener the appropriate images and atmosphere. In this regard, I have my own vision, but I think that such projects as Shadow of Intent and Avenged Sevenfold could help me form it, I like their vision of music and choice of notes. I also like to listen to electronic music, so I do not exclude the influence of such projects as Centhron and FGFC820.

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

There haven’t been such situations so far.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We love and appreciate each of them. We are ready to listen if they have any wishes regarding further releases within reason. We will also work to ensure that our audience expands and grows stronger.

14. What do you think of our site?

I haven’t heard of your site before. Now I see that this is a very interesting resource, which has a lot of information about different groups. You give people the opportunity to speak, and that's great.

15. Something to add?

We want our project to become an indicator that everyone can achieve their dream if they strive for it. There are only two of us, but together we have done a great job: in less than two years we have released an EP album, an animated video, a video with a cover song, a full-length album, and a video for one of the songs from it, and right now we are preparing to shoot another one! This is even though we are still independent musicians, and therefore we invest hard-earned money in our work (yes, now we work at a regular job and invest the earned money in our music). We will be delighted if you support our work with activity and our channels with a subscription.
