Interviews About Albums: ViOS - SlaveForm (2024)

In this new interview, we sat down with the UK Instrumental Progressive Metal band ViOS to ask questions about their album, "SlaveForm".

1. What can you say about this new EP?

Basically, it came about out of necessity. I’ve played in bands for a number of years on and off but when you have commitments in your personal life, it can be difficult finding the time, or the right people to be in a group with. I’m fortunate in that I play different instruments, even though guitar is my main instrument. I just decided to go it alone as I have lots of ideas I want to release as music.

2. What is the meaning of the EP name?

Many of the titles I come up with are just ambiguous or abstract. I’ve never really been interested in writing lyrics or singing in any group I’ve been in, but I’ve always been able to come up with song titles.

3. Which one is the composer of the EP?

I am the composer. I wrote and played everything. I also did all the mixing and post-production. It was sent to a professional studio for mastering.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

Probably ‘Saturation’ - it’s the heaviest, darkest, and most progressive of the lot as far as I’m concerned.

5. Is there a special message in this EP? If there is what is it?

That’s a good question. It’s more about immersing yourself in dystopian soundscapes and feelings.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

It’s like I said earlier - I’m a lazy ass when it comes to lyrics!

7. Which inspirations have been important for this EP? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

I’d have to thank my great friend Matt Lappin. I’ve played in bands with him from our late teens on and off. He’s a really gifted musician and does his own stuff under the moniker Against All Life. Check them out. He’s really helped me learn how to produce my own music and use Logic Pro X, plug-ins, and mix to a high standard. It would sound like a piece of shit if it wasn’t for him haha!

In terms of influences it comes from everywhere but I’ve always listened to a lot of extreme metal, fusion, industrial, electronic, and synthesizer music. If I started listing artists, I’d be here forever but I still enjoy discovering new stuff.

8. Something to add?

Just many thanks to you for the opportunity to speak to you about my music and to you for supporting the underground. Big thanks as ever to Imperative PR.
