Interviews: SINN-INC

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Thrash Metal/Hardcore band SINN-INC from France. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

SINN is a Gaelic term that means 'us.' Everyone is familiar with the political movement in Northern Ireland, 'Sinn Féin,' which translates to 'ourselves.' We obviously wanted a band name that represents 'us,' and SINN is the best representation of 'us'...

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

It's something very natural for us. No particular reflection on it. Everything has always come together very spontaneously. Obviously, it's the style of music we listen to, and the aggressiveness and the fierceness conveyed by this genre also allow us to express strong emotions and intense stories, so it's perfect for us.

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

The band has two eras. The first lineup was called 'SINN.' The drummer and I were part of another band previously, so we already knew each other. Then, the different musicians who joined SINN were generally friends. Now, regarding SINN-INC, I had only collaborated with Marco (the bassist) before

4. Each band member's favorite band?

It's always difficult to answer this kind of question because there are so many fantastic bands... Let's say, Slayer, Pro Pain, Nuclear Assault, Coroner.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We are drawn to profound themes, exploring topics that resonate with our emotions and personal concerns. Our songwriting delves into a diverse range of subjects, encompassing societal issues and occasionally delving into more intimate, personal narratives. Regardless of the specific theme, our approach is consistently characterized by a deep engagement with the subject matter. We aim to infuse our music with meaning and relevance, using it as a medium to express our perspectives on the world, whether addressing broader societal concerns or sharing our individual experiences.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last concert for SINN was a long time ago now; I think it was at a venue called Le Divan du Monde in Paris. As for SINN-INC, we are currently only a studio project, but things can change in the future.

7. Where would you like to act?

If we were to perform, with no pretensions, we would play anywhere. Our music is simple, direct, no frills; it can be played in a small venue or at a festival.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We focus on what we're doing without thinking about which band or musician we'd like to play with. But if an opportunity to collaborate comes up, we're available.

9. Whom not?


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

Yes, stage fright is present, and it's normal. Some even say it's a driving force. As for advice, it's essential to fully master your set before playing. If you're barely rehearsed, it could be challenging live. You need to have a margin. Also, remind yourself that you're there (on stage) because you want to be. So, you need to own your choices.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Everything related to thrash hardcore, and some heavy metal bands.

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

A long time ago, a guy crossed paths with me in the subway and asked me to sign his jeans. It's something quite ordinary, but it was the first time someone asked me for an autograph. Now, I would say that I simply find the act of asking for an autograph strange. I am more than willing to talk and discuss our music, but signing a piece of paper seems so trivial to me.

13. What do you think of your fans?

They are the best, they have good taste!

14. What do you think of our site?

Always very happy and grateful to sites like yours that allow us to have exposure, express ourselves, and make our music known. We appreciate the opportunity to connect with a new audience, share our passion, and contribute to the rich diversity of musical experiences. A big thank you to you for your work, your commitment, and the support you provide to all the bands.

15. Something to add?

Kill your Idols!
