Right To The Void Interview

( answered by Paul (guitar, graphic design) )

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Yes, we are Right To The Void, from France. We play together since 2008 and we eat a lot of baguettes !

2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Well, I think we play melodic death metal with a slight brutal touch and a lot of blast beat, haha. The new record differs from the previous one in the fact that we tried to add more melodic parts and a more personal touch. We wanted it to "breathe" more !

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

As many bands in metal we speak about the dark side of man of course but in this album the main topic is the light, in a mystical way. That"s why it's called "Light Of The Fallen Gods" !

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Right To The Void'?

This was the name of one of our very first song and the name sounded good so we decided to keep it. The song was about the fall of humanity, something like that ! Very dark stuff, hahah.

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

We played in a small festival, in 2010, alongside with Napalm Death and Immolation. 500 people were there, it was crazy ! The biggest show we ever made ! And earlier in 2014 we organized a show with the best local bands (Hord, All dogmas We Hate & Kombur), a lot of people were there and it was awesome, friends sharing the same stage, great memories.

As every band we try to be as tight and energetic as possible, if you want people to move in the pit you have to move on stage ! Since we play a quite technical music, we have to work a lot and find the perfect balance.

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

Yeah, we'll play some shows in the south of France and then we'll go on tour in East Europe for 15 days during march/april 2015.

7.The new album was released on WormHoleDeath Records, can you tell us a little bit more on how you got in contact with this label?

Carlo (WHD's boss) contacted us in 2011 when he listened to our first EP on Myspace and offered us a worldwide deal. We thought it was a joke at first and after some emails we realized it was real ! We are very good friends now, we love Carlo !

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death and thrash metal?

As a very underground band we don't have a lot of feedback except for some reviews (mostly positive) that make us very happy. And of course some nice messages on Facebook by people from all around the world, It's so cool to know that a dude at thousands miles listen to your music, it's a great feeling !

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

I don't know yet, we are too much in the new album for now. But I think we will develop this melodic part of our music !

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

We love and are very influenced by Swedish bands from the 90's like : In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Dissection, Soilwork, Arch Enemy, At The Gates... And also by bands like The Black Dahlia Murder of course !

Nowadays we listen to and love Sylosis, Wretched, Job For A Cowboy, Mastodon...

We love so many stuff in and out of metal, it's hard to choose a few !

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Well, I (Paul) love graphic design, it's my job and my passion ( I do some skateboarding too, and I have a big interest in vdeo games and mangas.

Guillaume (vocals) loves to ride his big japanese bike and do some Thai boxing.

Hugo (drums) likes getting his hands in cars and do a lot of sports.

Gauthier (guitar) is the Hulk of the band, he does a lot of body building stuff, haha !

Romain is a big American comics fan.

And of course we love to party and drink beers !

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

We want to thank you for this interview and thanks to everyone who support us in any way !!
Au revoir !
