Fear Of Domination Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

-  Well, we have done a music video on the single "Legion", but most of our time has gone to practicing new songs for the upcoming tour. Also we have given a lot of time to update our visual appearance on gigs.

2.You have a new album coming out early this year, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction it has taken and also how does it differ from your previous recordings?

- It is more organic and complete than any other album we have made. Hard to compare but I'm sure you will understand when you listen to it.

3.I have seen the band being labeled as industrial shock metal, can you tell us a little bit more about it?

- "Shock metal" term has been used by the media and the fans. We think that it has born from all the wild and weird things we've done live, for example pyroeffects, fire-circus and various weird stuff and strong appearance. 

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?

-  Mostly stories and feelings. I don't like to strictly pointing topics however I like to leave the final conclusion of the song to the listener. Mostly the darker sides of human mind but still things that we might come across with in our every day life.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Fear Of Domination'?

- Luuri came up with the name. Our topics contain lots of references about domination and being dominated, phobias and the mysteries of the mind. The name crystallizes all this completely. 

6.For what I have seen in pictures the band has a different look than other bands when they are playing live, can you tell us a little bit more about it?

- We want to bring the message and feeling behind the lyrics and music also to the visual side. We don't have any "gigs", we have shows. 

7.Out of all the shows and tours that the band has played so far, which one did you enjoy the most?

- All the shows have their ups and downs, so we really can't decide any specific show or tour. Still we regret none of them and we've done all of them without having any second thoughts. 

8.What are the touring and show plans for the new release?

- Lots of shows in Finland including both bigger and smaller clubs, and maybe even some festivals. Also we are looking towards Europe and Japan with hungry eyes. 

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of industrial and metal?

- We're finding more and more fanbase all over the world all the time. The feedback is always motivating us to keep on going harder and more further. 

10.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

- It will get better and better and more and more innovative. 

11.What are some bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

- Rammstein, Ministry, Pain, Bob Marley, Tool, J.S. Bach, and manymanymany others... 

12.Do you have any non musical interests?

- Gaming, Movies, Boobs... oh! and alcohol... 

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Buy the goddamn album, because we have given everything to it and it is just awesome.
