"We learned that music or making music is the perfect way to escape the daily routine. "

 

1. What is the main conclusion you have learned during these 7 years of trajectory about life and music being two inseparable things?
We learned that music or making music is the perfect way to escape the daily routine. Additionally we all became very good friends during these years of practising, experimenting, failing, writing songs and playing concerts.

2. After hearing your "Aesthetic Abomination" I have to say your music is very fresh and strong, though your musical influences are obvious; how did you work this album? What did you plan to put into it?
On the beginnig it was very hard to write anything as nobody had experience in songwriting. So we tried to write a song, make the best out of it, play it live and see if the people like it. In the end we had 10 songs which were ok for us so we decided to make this record. But we have to say that each song stands for itself and a bigger idea of what we wanted so say with the album or what could be a message we want to share with our listeners hasn’t existed. We just wanted to make some good songs.

3. This debut was released couple of years ago, so it might be the right time to make conclusions... Are you still satisfied with the whole record? What was the most surprising about the welcoming of this album?
Of course, at the moment we notice a lot of things which we would improve if we wrote this album now but we think for the firts release it is not too bad if you consider that most of us had no musical education.
At the moment we are working on some new stuff and we hope we can show soon that we developed further. The most surprising thing was that we really sold some albums ;)

4. Judging by the songtitles I see you are talking about some important matters. What are the important components of Methrox’s lyrics?
In our songs we are talking about things which are import for us like friendship, troubles of all kinds and of course love.
One song, it is called "live goes on" is about a tragic happening of one band member as he nearly died.
But on the other hand there are some songs where the lyrics are complete shit and does not mean anything.

5. Austria is well known as a huge breeding ground for metal bands. How is the metal scene in your country?
In Austria there are many really good metal bands but unfortunately there are not many or much to less big stages where they get the opportunity to show their talent.

6. Do you often play gigs in Austria, and how does it occur? Is it in small bars, or is there some bigger "official" concert places for metal bands? Is the crowd numerous during your live appearances?
Normally we play quite small concerts on festivals, bars and biker events.
It is always different. Sometimes it is crowded and somtimes just our small fan group stands front of the stage.
But we have to say that for us it is not that important if it is a big concert hall or a small bar. The main thing is that the audience likes it and that we have fun on the stage.

7. Do you think METHROX is a good live band? What do your gigs consist of, and are some cover-songs played in front of the beheaded audience?
There is lot of room for improvement concerning live performance as well for our songs. But we are giving all to make the the audience headbang.

8. I’ve noticed your pretty solid technical skills. Are you a self-learner, or do you have some musical education? Do you think that musical education is important, when creating, or playing music? Or both?
All of us learned the instruments as well as singing by ourselfes except the drummer.
We think it is important to know at least the basics to write songs and that’s why the drumers knowledge is so important for us.

But on the other hand some songs might have not been emerged if we all had perfect musical education. So it is important to have the right mix of both.

9. As a metal band do you  feel that you’re a part of a greater worldwide community of metalheads?
Yes, but a very small one as there are so many great bands and we are still at the beginning of writing our own songs.

10. It might be too early, but what can we expect from the forthcoming album?
It will be lot different to the first realease. It will contain various types of metal and we are working on some accoustic stuff as well. But we won`t hurry as we just want to release this record at the time the complete work suits our needs and this can take some time.

11. Well, I´ve got no more questions! What would you say to our readers in conclusion?
Check out our album and tell us what is OK and what is shit. Each comment helps us to improve.
Cheers!
