Interviews: Negative Frame

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metallic Hardcore/Metal band Negative Frame from the UK. Check out this band and follow them on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

Hey there, it’s Olly here the guitarist. The negative Frame derives from the bible. When Jesus's tomb was found empty, only a blood-stained cloth remained. When looking at this cloth through a negative frame - Jesus's face appears. This relates to our lyrics, every word can be perceived in your own personal view, and all is your own perspective.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

It was never a want, and I don’t think it is for anyone who plays heavy music. It was a need. We needed to start this band. Every day traveling to college - we saw hundreds of suites dressed, corporate commuters hunched over on the tube. We never wanted our lives to be worked away as corporate slaves - we needed to rock and we’re blessed that we have an unreal, dedicated following.

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

We met through skating and smoking weed with mutual long-haired grungers. Me and our vocalist Kesari started the band when we were 16, in 2017. We began booking DIY tours and rocked the country every weekend. In 2022 we joined forces with Avocado Booking after selling our shows. We work closely with Matt - the vocalist of Funeral For A Friend.

4. Where was your last gig?

We’ve just come back from a tour with Street Soldier! It was our release tour of 8-days around the UK, and holy shit was it insane! The shows were packed out with violent moshers going mental, people shouted back our lyrics and it's so sick to see people being as passionate for this band as we are.

5. Where would you like to perform?

Originally, The Underworld was our top goal for London venues - we grew up going there as kids, stage diving to the madness. We got to play the legendary venue last July, as main support for one of our favorite bass - Kublai Khan. Two huge festivals we would love to play soon include Bloodstock and Download. We’re grinding hard to get there that’s for sure.

6. Whom would you like to perform with?

This band started with the groove and bounce inspired by the legendary Lamb of God. To play alongside them would be awesome.

7. Whom not?

We grew up playing mixed bills as teenagers, getting on any show we could. We’re lucky to be playing hard bills with insane bands all the time now. We’re down to play whatever seems like a good time to us.

8. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

All of us grew up heavily passionate, rocking since our school days. We’ve all grown into this and have always felt comfortable getting up to rock. For bigger shows I’m slightly on edge but always very eager to get up there. A tip would be to spend time writing good songs so you’re confident with your band's material.

9. What bands have inspired you the most?

Apart from the groove inspirations from Lamb of God, early violent metalcore/death metal/heavy hardcore bands have definitely inspired the more visceral energy us. Despised Icon, Everybody Gets Hurt, Morbid Angel, Burn The Priest.

10. What do you think of your fans?

Gnarly fucken moshers.

11. What do you think of our site?

It’s a cool spot to showcase a range of bands. Thanks for all your work.

12. Something to add?

Hell yeah, thanks for having us - check out our new EP Mercy Killing. Available on vinyl from The Coming Strife Records UK and CD from Death Farm Records EU. ROCK ON
