Interviews: Arcanica

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Progressive Metal band Arcanica from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

We wanted something mystical but metal. Whatever you think about Metallica it's hard to say they have a bad name. It may be one of the best for a metal band. Arcanica is a combination of the Work Arcane and Metallica

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

The older I get the more I look for a challenge. For some reason, if it doesn't hurt it doesn't feel good. I think similar things have been said by alcoholics and drug addicts.

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

I've known JT and Jeremy since my day in Surgeon, it was the previous project we were all involved in. This project has a different feel so it made sense to take on a whole new name. Andrew used to be in Thrashole and was introduced to us via Nick from Empress and Lor, it's a small world.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Scan Boltron - Leprous

JT Wieme - Enslaved

Jeremy Q - Gojira, Sky Harbor, and Plini

Andrew Campbell - Pallbearer. Conan, or Hangman’s Chair

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

The initial spark comes from the need to be creative or “artistic” but generally when words come into play they are more of a cathartic or therapeutic release for life struggle and trauma. This particular song was inspired by hitting the lowest low of my life.

6. Where was your last gig?

The last big one was at Underground Arts with Hammerfall

7. Where would you like to act?


8. Whom would you like to feature with?


9. Whom not?

I hear Coolio is kind of hard to work with. I'd rather keep things smooth so not her.

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

It comes up usually when we have to pull off something new. Maybe we are a man down. Usually, the best thing to do is just try and enjoy the experience as much as possible and get through it.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Early Black Sabbath, Gojira, Leprous

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

A single pubic hair

13. What do you think of your fans?

They are great. I hope they can find the kind of relief in my life I found through other people's music.

14. What do you think of our site?

It's great. I think it's wonderful when people help publish the hard work of artists in a world where so many people just don't give a shit. Keep up the good fight!

15. Something to add?
