Interviews: Oxygen

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Metalcore band, Oxygen, from Spain. 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?

The idea for the name arose as a result of searching for what this project meant to each of us. It is so difficult to explain because it is quite personal depending on our own thoughts.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We make this musical genre because it's basically what we like and it's so simple because when you sit in front of the computer and start composing, that's what I get! Metal music is an expression of power and strength and we feel alleviated with such a blast when the overdrive sounds and all these elements explode to create a song.

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

Yes, except Javi, vocalist of the band, the rest of us are friends and colleagues from other projects who, due to the musical and friendship connection we have, remain together today. Regarding Javi, we met through the search for a vocalist through musical social networks and he was like a dragon on the spot as we quickly made a perfect ensemble.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Well, this question is very difficult to answer since we do not have a favorite band as such I believe that there are bands for every moment of life and the one that is a favorite today may no longer be a favorite tomorrow. If there are songs that mark each of us and groups that shape our tastes, we can mention, among others, Machine Head, Fear Factory, Meshuggah, Treat Signal, Lamb of God, Sybreed, Killswitch Engage, Sylosis, In Flames among the many bands on the international metal scene.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

From my point of view as a musical composer, inspiration comes and goes depending on how I am that day, hahaha. Basically, I need to sit down, pick up the guitar, and start developing an idea, always thinking of a logical structure to shape the song and then Javi can create a letter. In the end, since we work remotely, we try to be as productive as possible when shaping the topics.

6. Where was your last gig?

There is not a last concert with this project because we have not been able to take it to the stage yet but we hope to be able to do it as soon as possible.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would like to be able to perform in that place where there is an audience that knows how to appreciate it and is willing to have a good time with us!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We would like to be able to meet/introduce ourselves to people who are within this world and can contribute things to us that add to the growth of the band.

9. Whom not?

Obviously, those who do not contribute anything at all.

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

Well, not stage fright as such, but insecurity about whether I will do it right or wrong and that makes you stop enjoying yourself. Fear is very annoying because it takes over you without letting you do what you like most. The biggest advice for anyone who is starting out and finds themselves with this problem is to try to go on stage calm, sober, sure of themselves, being clear that the people below are there to enjoy and you are the person who has to make them have one of the best times of your life. It is also very important to be confident when playing and trust in yourself and your abilities as a musician, always being clear about your strengths and limitations.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Well, we can name Machine Head, Treat Signal, Killswitch Engage, lamb of god, and In Flames, I mention those four but there are many influential bands.

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

Well, concerning the fans, on other occasions we have not had anything that could be considered strange or out of the ordinary.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Regarding the fans and this project, we think that they like what we do and are enjoying it and we will continue releasing material that is at the level of their tastes!

14. What do you think of our site?

It is a perfect site for new and well-known bands. Promoting new artists is easier and harder than ever at the same time. Places such as Metal Devastation provide new bands an extraordinary tool to make their public bigger. You are doing a great job of spreading metal music as a cultural expression.

15. Something to add?

Just best wishes to our fans and hope we will continue growing and enjoying this amazing path calles music together.
