Either Way Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1-Either Way began as a solo project. I played in several bands (Dead N Crazy, Scythians, Osm'oz ...) and I wanted to create my own album. I began to compose and record songs. Jean Michel Cervoni, a longtime friend, recorded the guitar solos. Everything was done in my home studio.Then, we sent the songs to Kevin PANDELE (USA) who did the mixing and mastering. Fabrice Pelletier, my guitar in my other band Monolyth, joined us.

2.In June you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
Behind the light is a mixture of many emotions. Joy, Hate, Hope, Despair ... Melodic passage with piano, but while trying to keep rock n roll and heavy side. For solos by exemple. I wanted to keep chorus easy to remember.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
we talk about human emotions generally. The hypocrisy of the people, ready to put everything to succeed and lower earth person. But above all that we must fight and be proud of to be. Raise the head and forward

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Either Way'?
In French, it means that in one way or another. Even with problems, when we do not give up, it's OK. This is a positive message

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We all have in the group a good stage experience. With the first parts of Gojira, Gotthard, The Gathering. Festivals with Paradise Lost, Anathema, Pretty Maids. But Either Way begins and we will make our first stage in September. We are excited!

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We have many proposals for dates. With dates in belgium, germany, poland. We put it all in place. we hope to play wherever they want from us!

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
I had some contact and we expect the following. For now nothing defined. I prefer to take my time rather than sign quickly and in the end did not have the expected support. So to see. But remain independent does not scare me. It is more work, and harder to prove himself.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of melodic death metal?
For now, we have very good return. Many people are surprised that this is the first album. We are quick to defend him on stage.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We will turn up to defend this album which is a business card. Starting next year, in parallel, we will begin to write a new cd (some pieces are already in works). Fabrice and Jean-Michel will participate fully in this album. but above all we want to play as much as possible and do as much as possible headbanger!

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?
First: Evergrey, Before The Dawn, Dark Tranquility, Dream Theater. My 4 favorite groups. Also Wintersun Death, At The Gates, Yyrkoon, Sentenced, Amorphis. And those who have given me want to make music: Iron Maiden, Emperor, Dissection, Slayer, Europe, Weather Report, Marcus Miller and Toto!
For jean-michel: Gun's and Roses, Motley Crue, Dream Theater.

Fabrice: Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, Children of bodom

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Laughing with my son. there's nothing better. No morale, it makes me smile and all is well.
We all love good food, good drink, a concert evening

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
-We hope to meet up with people. Share intense moments on stage. View many countries as possible. we hope to see you !!
