THE COLD LEADS TO OUR ANGRY METAL
- people should always remember who Dime was and what he did for metal music. I can tell that for myself he is one fourth the reason why I am on stage today -
- Hi guys! How are you? Which are your impressions about the
RadioTakeover tour across the USA?
- Hey, this is Paul the singer. The bands were great
and a bunch of cool shits. Not every show was packed but the kids who did
show up came for a good time. The shows that were packed were crazy. Just
the way we like it!!!
actually after the tragedy happened in Columbus at the Alrosa Villa, i
think it's more than right to ask you how you remind Dimebag Darrell
(RIP.) and if you think that something will change in the general mood and
atmosphere of metal concerts.
I hope nothing changes. But people should always remember who Dime was and what he did for metal music. I can tell that for myself he is one fourth the reason why I am on stage today. PANTERA has always been a huge influence’ and its sad to realize its finally over. Everytime I was lucky run in to Dime he was a grade a person who treated everyone with nothing but utter respect. We lost a true Icon not only for how an artist should be and act but how a person should.
next year you will embark on the Heavyweights of Hardcore tour together
with Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Love Is Red and The Autumn Offering +
Unity Tour with Agnostic Front and Terror. Which are your expectations and
expect a lot of crazy fans. We are thrilled and honoured
to be on those tours, and the world better believe we are going to
bring our A game.
you think that this great evolution of the wave of American hyperheaviness
combined with melodious breakdowns, performed by many bands, each in its
style, from The Dillinger Escape Plan till Shadows Fall and Lamb of God,
can be the actual innovation in metal nowadays? Which borders of heaviness
will you break through (if there are still any)?
are questions that only time can answer. Every band hopes what they are
creating can hit people where it counts, but at the end of the day only
the fans and friends can answer that.
we say that an important component of your music is based on a
“metal-lized” American Rock, like in the song "These Days",
label any music is tough. I can tell you when we write music, we write
what we feel sounds good to us. So I guess our biggest component is our
own approval that it’s a great song.
the way "These Days"...which are the days that are gone? How d
you reconcile, both in your private and professional life, the past with
cant change yesterday, you can only learn to make a better tomorrow. I
know it sounds corny (that’s why you re-word it). I ve made my share of
mistakes in my private and pro life, but I turn them into lessons and it
makes me a better artist and person.
is a band that plays in an amazing way, with enthusiasm but also with
precision; guitars between assault and harmony supported by an excellent
drumming. How much time do you spend in the rehearsal? What is the alchemy
through which you are bonded one another?
days a week That’s key. I don’t think theirs magic, but your band
becomes a second family. If your family is hard working honest and
functional youll tough out the hardest times.If not, then its off to the
jerry springer show.
it true that drummer Jason Costa plays barefoot? Always?
He also holds the sticks with traditional grip. Hes defiantly one to
the influences shown by your music, some little details concerning the
guitar technique are similar to Dew-Scented….
not sure what you mean?,but I can tell you that they always bring the
balls come showtime.
are the nominations and awards gathered till now?
think the list is a blank page . But its still early yet!!!
or Headbanging? In general which kind of response you like to induce in
love it all!!! Be as crazy as possible! We thrive off it!!!
is the "Diecast army", portrait on your official website?
not sure, my guitarist john
made it , but if any one has any cool pictures of crazy fans and
people go to www.bhcdiecast.com
and send them to us we love that shit.
you tell us something about Boston? Which are the characteristics of the
town, which are more meaningful for you?
a big sports city and its cold way too often. I think the cold leads to
our angry metal and hardcore. That’s also why I think we have so many
(or what) is your “Savior”?
family and friends are what get me through every day so I guess I would
have to say its them. I do believe there is a god , but I believe in my
you believe in astrology and/or horoscopes?
But they are fun to read.
Tower time! Here it is, our "religious" typical gryphonmetal
last question: the Game. And The Game in question is the Game of the
Tower, typical for the bands we interview for the first time: on the top
of a high “bloody” tower 3 bands wait for you. You have to push down 2
of them, saving only one. The 3 bands for you are P.O.D., Anthrax, and
I have to push, I think im going to have to say Anthrax stays on the
tower. I do like Rammstein and POD is ok. But I have loved Anthrax for a
long time. Sorry boys im gonna have to stick with my roots.
here is the space fully free for you, in order to leave your message for
readers and fans
to everyone whos given our album a chance, and we cant wait to cause
mayhem in your area soon!!
