Interviews: CARRION

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal band, CARRION from Belgium. 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?

The band name Carrion came because in 2007 we were called Reroute To Remain but people started to mistake us for an In Flames cover band or simply couldn’t spell or remember the band name so we chose something short. That time Carrion was also the name of the intro of an Aborted album so we were like yeah this could sound cool for a band name... We were 19 years old at that time so we didn’t get a clue anyway.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Our first album “Revelations” was more a mix of subgenres... Some of us liked the core genres, some of us liked death metal... When you listen to our second album “Time To Suffer” it’s clear that since then we are a modern death metal band and know which direction we want to aim. Now that we have Nico Verhoeven on drums we can also make death metal that is very fast (260bpm). Our drummer doesn’t like to play slow songs so that’s why our third album is high tempo!

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

I (Mathieu) got to know our vocalist Sven at school when we were 14 years old. I discovered Sven his vocal talents in my bedroom when we covered Redneck from Lamb Of God. In that period Sven was also good friends with Jan who is still our main songwriter. Sven and Jan found our first drummer Wouter in their baseball team. Our first bass player was Jonathan and he played in a cover band with Jan in 2006.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

It’s hard for us to say 1 favorite for each member but I guess our Top5 contains bands like Suffocation, Aborted, Opeth, Gojira, and Immortal

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

All the bands that we love and in my case some weed as well.

6. Where was your last gig?

Zingem Beeft!

7. Where would you like to act?

Alcatraz, Graspop, and all the other big festivals.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We already did some cool shows with bands like Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Children Of Bodom, Blood Red Throne, etc. If I need to pick one other Death Metal band I would really want to play a show with its Bloodbath!

9. Whom not?

This is a weird question but I guess it’s not good to let us open for soft bands... 

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

Warm up just before the show and maybe drink a beer or 2 to get lost. Do some stretching or excercise if your legs feel awkward.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Bloodbath, Lamb Of God, Aborted...

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

Someone asked us if we are satanists.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are awesome! They give us the energy we need to keep going! Many fans would like to see us at bigger events so I hope they’ll get what they want very soon!

14. What do you think of our site?

Your website is awesome! I see you interviewed some cool Belgian bands already, keep it going!

15. Something to add?

Check our single Morbid Nailgun Necropsy! It will melt your face!
