Interviews: Sorcerer

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the HDeath Metal/Thrash Metal band Sorecer 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?

LD: I believe it was spontaneous. Something that just stuck. Our guitarist/vocalist started the band in his early 20s. I know that he has a friend who drew the logo. Unfortunately, I don't have more of those details for you but so far it has been a wonderful title to work under.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

LD: I suppose we're sort of expanding on a sound that has already been established here in Florida. One of the things that really drew me into Death Metal back when I got into it is that a lot of it came from here. I felt like it was sort of the Florida experience for some people and I really gelled with that. Expanding on that fundamental sound has been a lot of fun so far and it only has gotten better and better!

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

LD: I had met Josh briefly in Middle School. I had a band while he had Sorcerer and I had seen them and played shows with them in those days. Very much the same with Mike. That's actually a cool story. A few years after our drummer had left Mike expressed his disapproval that the band was on hiatus. He mentioned that he wished he could play like Chris, our former drummer who is featured on Omnipresent Devastation, a very talented drummer by my own standards. Fast forward a few years from that and he was sending us videos of himself covering those songs. At that point, it was pretty obvious to get him on board and get the momentum going again!

4. Each band member's favorite band?

LD: ABIGOR. I can assume that the two other guys would respond with Death or something along those lines

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

LD: hmmm.. this last recording covered a variety of different topics including environmental and social commentary, war, and Carlos Castaneda. Sorcery and Shamanism are definitely key and a working idea for our trajectory but we have covered an array of subject material. Anything supernatural is of great interest to us.

6. Where was your last gig?

LD: As of 12/29.. 10/28 at Atlas Brewery Works in DC. I couldn't have asked for a better closer to a week-long string of shows. Great bands, Wonderful crowd, and Atlas really made us feel in our element! Our next venture will kick off 2/22-25 and will have us playing around Florida. The following month we will be in Salt Lake City

7. Where would you like to act?

LD: there are so many places that I would like to take it! Small towns that have a surprising turnout are a lot of fun. Out West seems like a wonderful place to play. I have mapped out a bunch of trajectories within the US based on where friends and bands are and they are all very exciting prospects.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

LD: inspired local bands who have a fun local turnout. There really is nothing cooler than a local who really turns heads. Things like that which are really unique are really worth experiencing. It's absolutely a plus if they jive with what we're doing.

9. Whom not?

LD: whoever doesn't want to appreciate the general vibe that is going on. I appreciate people who are enthusiastic and excited about watching live music. I do like a general vibe of safety and respect while embracing that we're in a setting to cut loose as long as the general welfare is respected. 10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that? 

LD: I certainly have. Not so much with this particular band as much. Even at points in which I have been playing on stage for many years. Just practice your material as much as you can so you are solid with what you do. If you can get with whoever is in your ensemble who you feel is the weakest link and work with them individually. More often than not great results come from a smaller section of the band working together to get tighter.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

LD: Abigor has really inspired me a lot. They really have explored just about every avenue in their niche and continue to expand on their sound while still holding on to their identity. I learned a lot of the different string voices in Dissection early on and that was very fundamental in my approach to melody and harmony.

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

LD: In my annals of playing in the local Tampa punk scene I dare not go there, LOL!

13. What do you think of your fans?

LD: I cannot commend anyone enough who can appreciate what I have to offer. It is among the biggest compliments ever.

14. What do you think of our site?

LD: you have a very wonderful site! I really appreciate what you are doing for the community and I appreciate that it is very user-friendly.

15. Something to add?

LD: Give us a listen and follow along if you would like! If you really dig it and would like to see us perform live in your area then get in touch! Definitely reach out if you like what you hear!
