Interviews: Dead Legacy

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band, Dead Legacy from Mexico. 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 came over concepts we wanted to share with our music. As we came from different bands with different genres, we wanted to use Metalcore elements to specify the sound we were looking for, and so it was easy to identify among the audience.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Ivan: When we formed DL, the members had already been part of other bands and with different types of metal, but we all agreed to try Metal Core, later on, we combined it with some deathcore and progressive variants. We felt that it was a great combination and we were pleased with the result.

Tim: I used to play in punk rock, thrash, and hardcore bands, and also I've been into metal core since I was a teenager, but never had a chance to be part of a band of that genre. When DL posted auditions for a singer during the pandemic in April 2020, I saw a new challenge and the opportunity to improve my musical skills.

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

Ivan: We already knew each other before forming the band, but each one had their own project, in the end, it led us to share a taste for the Metal core genre and we decided to try it as a band. so it could be said that the friendship between members goes beyond the eleven years that we started Dead Legacy.

Tim: I was the drummer in a band called Backyard with Tuga and Dan between 2002 and 2011.

We took separate ways in music but as you might have guessed we are still friends.

I think it was in the summer of 2012 when Tuga called me to hang out and drink a couple of beers on the first or maybe the second practice of his "new band". There I met JD and Fury.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Ivan: Favorite bands: dream theater, as I lay dying, killswitch engage, Soilwork, in flames, Born of Osiris, and Veil of Maya, to mention a few.

JD: Dream Theater, Trivium, and Children of Bodom.

Tuga: intervals, Veil of Maya, all that remains, erra, animals as leaders, unearth.

Tim: Propagandhi.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

JD: We use our life experiences as topics, some of the songs start out as ideas of what we would like to share with the world, and some are topics that are important to us, our beliefs and what we like life after death, Extraterrestrials, ancient cultures, etc.

Tuga: Use Our life as a base concept, share our image of the world and the colors that we see it.

Tim: Sci-Fi stories, the "dark side" of technology, politics, and society. Horror movies, gore, and my mental issues.

6. Where was your last gig?

Shazam Festival, Mexico City, Nov 3 2022.

7. Where would you like to act?

JD: It's funny, you know, we still think there's a possibility to play Wacken or Hellfest, that would be a dream come true.

Tuga: I want to live the dream as a musician, play in big metal festivals in my country and play around the world.

Tim: In a small venue as the "big act" somewhere in Europe or Asia.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Tuga: With Matt Gartska but I need to improve my skills (badly)

Tim: Diva Satanica, Chris Addler, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, Shauntrack, Jack Black.

9. Whom not?

Tuga: Phill Anselmo or Sopor Aeternus, lol.

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

Tim: A rush of adrenaline haunts me at every gig!! Big or small! A weird mix between fright and the joy of being where I want, doing what I love. Tips?? Practice alone in your house, bedroom, or home studio a few days before the show, and imagine you are performing at Live Aid or something that big. Also, 20 minutes of some breathing techniques, body moving, and two beers before hitting the stage are the key to feeling confident.

JD: This is something I get most of the time, it does not matter how big the audience is, and I hate it haha, but every single time, as soon as I play the first chord/note, it disappears. My most efficient tip for beginners would be to: practice, practice, and practice. Practice builds up confidence.

Tuga: Every time that I jump on stage my knees shake like an earthquake, but I try to breathe deeply and hit the first chord hard. Practice as much as you can helps a lot.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

JD: Dream Theater and Iron Maiden changed the world for me.

Tuga: intervals, thrice, Trivium, Iron maiden.

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

Tim: Sign a boob at the venue after a gig. I know, cliche, but it was weird for me.

13. What do you think of your fans?

JD: We are so grateful to have them. It's really crazy if you think of it, but most musicians write songs based on their feelings, and it's crazy that even though we are billions of humans, there's still something that ties us, and makes strong connections that we share through our music. That's why we love them, they keep us going and inspired!

Tim: Really passionate about music!! People with beautiful vibes and always supportive of what we do.

14. What do you think of our site?

Nowadays it's hard to get the right topics out of the www, having a specialized site that gathers us together with specialized fans it's also very unique and important. We as emerging artists really appreciate that there are still crazy people like you guys delivering the genre to crazy people like us!

Awesome!! Journalism about extreme music. We really like it!!

15. Something to add?

Let's Keep the metal community alive, there are great projects coming day by day, but there's still so much to discover! We are honored to be on your site!! Thanks a lot!!
