(Answers by Alexandr Clarke - Guitars)

1. How would you characterize the development of your band during the last 6 years? What are your greatest achievements and downfalls?

A) For the moment we are quite happy with our first mini tour as well as playing at Les Foufoune Electrique, a quite good and large venue here in Montreal. We are also proud of our album since a large portion of metal is always so aggressive and leave little place for the subtleties (drums especially) which is something that we did put into consideration. As far as downfalls go we are quite sad to have left behind Annik Laporte, our ex drummer who recorded the first album due to injuries.
She was replaced shortly after by Tristan Beaulieu an excellent drummer who fills in great and even brings Fateless into a more technical and more aggressive era.

2. How would you describe FATELESS as a whole? Is there anything that makes the group different compared to most new and upcoming bands?

A) Well as far as I can see most band from here are musicians trying to have a band meet and play music where as us were a family the vocalist Fx Jodoin, the bassist Marc Gervais and myself Alexander Clarke have known each other since early high school and even earlier maybe. So the chemistry is very unique I believe we know each other inside and out. As for Jonathan Fontaine, Annik Laporte and Tristan Beaulieu saw even in just a year or so the family-like feeling was there and really made us a close group of individuals and complete one another quite well. In a as few words as possible to describe ourselves... I'd have to say we are like a ring forged from an undestructible material. We are one.

3. I am curious to know more things about your debut CD. Tell us something about the main idea of the 9 tracks. Where did you record? Did you have any problems in studio and all sorts of interesting details for our readers?

A) Well as for the 9 tracks they do have a change of complexity that is the product of 7 years of composition some songs were written when 7 years ago as for the last songs that were composed for the album were, Shining Star, Elegie du Gouffre and Wasted Land. The abum itself well we would have take more time for the drum sections we were in a condensed time frame to tape the drum tracks so Annik had not played certain transitions to her personal perfection, we also encountered a problem with one of the tracks, there was a tempo change on the midi track that Annik was not used to and caused a few complications. We recorded with my former Sound Engineering instructor Philippe Massabki, in Montreal/Laval at his personal studio and at Sonogram (for the drums only). It was a great studio very high end with the most expensive equipment I'd seen at the time and we are looking forward to finishing the writing of our second album to return to the big studio to record our next full length!



4. How would you describe FATELESS live? Where does Fateless feels the best to you, in rehearsal, studio or live?! How do you figure out your live shows setlists?

A) The wide range of aggressive and heavy metal riffs to smooth sweet cleans leaves a rather quite frequent mood change due to our progressive influences. Definitely in the studio in my opinion but there's nothing like the thrill of being onstage and creating a vibe for the whole crowd to be moved by. For setlists its quite simple, if we know our crowd is more francophone or anglophone we will then choose our songs in that language the band writes its lyrics half in french and the other half in English, and at the same time we try to play our most recent songs at all times for with the years that have gone there is an evolution in the style that we play.

5. Pick a song from the album, that you feel to be the most interesting lyrically, musically or having a good story about it and tell me about it.

A) Elegie du Gouffre, at the time I was listening to a lot of Quo Vadis and Insomnium and musically my influences were driven from that as for lyrics its oddly enough the poem about a young man that is tormented by the loss of a loved one but more so it plays on his sanity and leaves him spiraling in his own depression.

6. Are there any certain religious or philosophical beliefs within the band? What are your attitudes towards fans that like your music but do not have your ideals?

A) We write about a few subjects sometimes it does touch utopic and political views and sometimes it referes to the change in people and there loss of humanity. Over the years a growing tendency towards "the fall of the Idea" is a growing thought. We also enjoy writting about the sickness of a man that does not understand it and sometimes even touches the limits of sanity and insanity. We believe that in ever society there are these subjects problems to deal with. Music is meant for a positive impact on a person and whether or not they agree with what is said doesn't matter it is more the idea of help make your world better do not dwell in the past if your present is not what you want it to be then make your future what you want it to be.. That is what Fateless is about.

7. What are some of your interests, occupations and hobbies outside of composing sick music?

A) Politics, studies, gaming, hanging with friends, working on cars, smoking shisha and enjoying life would sum it up.

8. You recorded your debut album, “Dawn Of Ignorance” almost one year ago, so I’m guessing you've come a bit since. How’s the writing process going, any plans so far for next recording session?

A)Indeed you are right we have a few new songs that are not on the album, Prevoir La Tempete, Les Ruine de L'Act, 15 Fevrier and Path to Utopia are 4 songs that are currently being recorded at my home studio for our upcoming EP which should be ready by the end of the summer, and we are currently working on the rest of the 2nd album that we hope to start recording as soon as the EP is released!

9. What would you consider the hardest part about playing in an Underground band?

A) Well Montreal is one of the largest cities in Quebec and even Canada. Whats difficult here is the competition there are so many bands that the ratio from fan/band is almost 3 to 1 so nearly everyone in the metal scene in Montreal has a band. The talent is not lacking in Montreal its the opportunities, everything here is a competition which takes away.

10. And how 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 mates?

A) Like I mentioned before we are a family and spend almost as much time outside jams and rehearsals as in them. In fact I currently live with my vocalist.

11. - Well, that would be all for the moment...thanks very much for your time. If you have anything to add in the end to conclude this interview.
