"Our personal feeling about our songs is what matters the most when judging our releases.
are a pretty young band, What are you most
proud of achieving as a band, and have
there been any defining moments that stand
out in your memories since your inception
To us, our biggest achievements were without a doubt our first concert in march 2016 with Inner Reflections and Sound Of Memories and the fact that our first EP was chronicled on june 2016 in the French magazine “Rock Hard”, the biggest Metal magazine in France.
ony release so far is "Insanity
Chaos" EP, could
you tell me something about the process of
making these four tracks? What kind of
composing is more congenial and
inspirative for you?
Well we recorded it all at home using Victor’s computer and skills in mixing the tracks. This EP is 100% homemade. The drums were recorded using an electronic drum set and the guitars, bass and vocals were recorded in Victor’s room.
long time it took to record it and in what
manner you wrote ideas for this material?
Are you working all together as a band, or
somebody comes up with finished songs?
It took 3 months to record our EP. At the beginning, Victor used to compose everything except the drums, but nowadays, we are working together, always incorporating a few personal details in each song in order to get something that we all like and that defines each of us.
do you think that is most important
criterion for you assessing the value of a
release? Is it your personal feeling and
knowledge about the songs, the press, the
response of the audience etc?
Our personal feeling about our songs is what matters the most when judging our releases.
format had nowadays gained unbelievable
comeback. And tapes finally came back too!
Do you see any advantages in different
formats like LP, CD and MC and which one
of them you personally prefer?
Vinyls are really interesting because they are a unique and beautiful object; they’re definitely full of charm.
you have serious opportunities for live
shows in your region? What are the most
memorable shows that you played? Any funny
stories to tell?
We definitely have more show opportunities in Paris and Paris’ suburbs than in the surroundings of our hometown (Chartres). In our opinion, our best show was the one we made the 1st of October 2016 in Rambouillet, with The Bearded Bastards and Unscarred. But the funniest moment on stage was when Clément spilled his beer all over his pedal board during our first concert, thus completely muting his guitar. Shit happens!
have gained attention of your local fans,
but how have been the feedback from
The only foreign media who contacted us was you guys! Since this summer we do have some foreign contacts, such as the guys from Dust Bolt.
are you guys getting alone in private
life? Do you hang out as a band or also as
friends? Do you think its important to
always be friends first and then a band
Well we’re students, except for Lou who still goes to High School. We kinda started as bandmates and then became friends. Though we keep in mind that being friends and in the same band can be tricky, because if something goes wrong it can ruin your friendship or relationship as bandmates, we still definitely have strong ties together.
what about inspiration outside of death
metal and music in general? What else
fuels your inspiration? What kind of art
do you enjoy in your spare time?
Literature, cinematography, theatre?
Victor: Definitely cinema, but also Jazz, Classical and Rap music
Lou: To me, that would be Punk rock, Nu Metal, thrash metal and also hardcore.
Clément: I’m really keen on Blues, Jazz and Nu Metal
Lucas: My biggest influences are definitely located in mythology and history in general. As of music outside of Death Metal, I’m into Doom Metal, Black Metal and a bit of Hardcore/Deathcore-
you were to choose one album that had a
huge impact in you, which album would that
be and why?
Victor: Wow, there are just way too many albums I can think of, but if I had to pick one, it’d be The Poison by Bullet For My Valentine
Lou: Same here, but I’d add Locust by Machine Head, Slipknot by Slipknot or also Welcame by Rise Of The North Star.
Clément: To me, It’d be Evil Empire by Rage Against The Machine
Lucas: I’ll be cheating on this one, I’ll mention two albums which are consider to be equivalent to me: Sacrament by Lamb Of God and Cause Of Death by Obituary
know in metal business, the competition
among the bands is very tough and the
labels are having a part of great
majority. Sohave you received any label
proposal so far?
Yup, we do have a deal opportunity, stay tuned, it’s still under negotiations!
are the near-future plans of BA? Can fans
of the band see a new release anytime soon
for the band, and if so, what can fans
expect in the new music?
2017 will be marked by the release of our first album. You can expect the new material to be more mature, and listeners will be able to make a greater distinction between our Thrash side and our Death side.
we’ve come to an end. Do you have any
final thoughts? Thank you for your time…
