Descending Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is goingon with the band these days?

Well, our new album has just hit the stores and we are keeping track
of the feedback. Now we are looking into any possibility for touring
to spread our music.

2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases?

I would describe it as Modern death metal and it has much more massive sound from our first album. It’s heavier and with a darker feeling in it.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the new album?

It’s a concept album and the story revolves around the life of a very important person, a “celebrity”, and the different stages of it. Every song speaks about a state of mind, body and soul, from birth to death as seen through the eyes of the protagonist.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name

It’s just a name, there is no specific meaning behind it. We though that it sounded nice and it represents our music so we chose it.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?

We had the luck to share the stage with some really important bands of the metal scene such as Lamb of God, Heaven and Hell, Gojira, Shadows Fall, The Hunted, Septic Flesh and much more and so far the feedback from the crowd has been great, so we give our best every time, we try to pass the energy and every show is a great new experience.

6. Do you have any touring plans for the new album?

Of course! We want to tour as much as we can to share our music with the people so we are looking into it right now. When we will have news on it we will spread the word.

7. On a worldwide level how has your music been received by melodic
death metal fans and thrash fans worldwide?

The feedback so far is good although it’s really soon to tell, but most fans seem to enjoy our music and that is something that really keeps us going. Also I would like to tell that our music is not likeable only by Death and Thrash fans but everyone who is into the modern extreme sound.

8.Are there any other projects besides this band or is this a full time line-up?

Everyone is giving 100% of ourselves to Descending but we have some members playing in other bands too. Constantine is the guitarist in German based Mystic Prophecy and is working also in solo instrumental stuff. Also Theo and Nick are members of the Volos based Hardcore band Die Without.

9. What direction do you see the music heading into on future releases?

We couldn’t tell what our future sound would be like cause we like to let ourselves free and experiment. The sure thing is that with every release we will deliver a much more personalized sound.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your
music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Well I couldn’t say something specific. We have a lot of different taste in music from each other inside the band so almost everything could be an influence. Nowadays we are listening to everything from metal, rock, alternative to jazz and blues that might draw our attention.

11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Our everyday interests vary from movies to sports and everything most people do. One new interest though is working on music video clips. We have just finished filming our new video for the track The Energy from our new album and soon it will be ready. I believe the fans will find it very interesting.

12. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap upp this interview?

Thank you for the opportunity to share our thoughts with the fans and I hope they will enjoy our new album!
