"We never tried to fit within any specific metal type, so I guess we could say we are nonconformist."

1. Firstly, tell us about your evolution as a “musician” and getting involved in the scene. How did you started with Skyhex? 

Skyhex was founded by a bunch of friends who wanted to play music, plain and simple. There was some changes of members in the first years so we would find a match both musically and personally. We got involved in the scene progressively doing some contests and small underground shows. 

2. Let´s talk about your debut album "Lake Of Bones", How do you create the 7 songs? Is it predetermined process, or do you leave substantial space for improvisations? 

Most of the songs are initially composed by Yanz the lead guitarist, then the rhythm section add their ideas to the mix so the song blends together. The vocals are added last. Lake of Bones as evolved a lot in the first years Skyhex was created before we finally were pleased with how it sounded and decided to enter studio. 

3. The vocal parts and choruses are always very energetic and varied. Do you think that the singing are one of the best important things on music? 

This is not really how we feel about vocals, since the album is centered on guitars a lot. But in the end, any song is incomplete without vocals. 

4. I believe that every band has their own way in composing music… so how do you proceed with a song-writing? What elements highly emphasized during the song-writing period? Do you need any certain atmosphere or environment to come up with a good idea? 

Each members of the band have their own way of composing their own parts. Then it’s all tied up together afterwards. Sure the main riffs are always written down before anyone starts working on a song, and every song is always tabbed entirely. Inspiration is another thing and is mostly personal to each member. 

5. Could you explain the meaning and significance behind the album artwork, and tell us how the conceptualization of the album artwork come about? 

We wanted something that would show the Lake of Bones which is mentioned in Fate lyrics while still being cartoony. We had a tattoo artist help us with the main design then took it from there. The rest of the album art is DIY, we took some pictures of animal bones and did the layout ourselves. 

6. “Fate” is my favorite song in the album. It’s very vigorous, fully emotional, and has some very nice riffs. Could you share some words about that song? 

Lake of Bones was initially supposed to be a concept album, we ended up doing only a couple songs that followed a storyline. Fate is the introduction to this story which will be continued on the next album. It’s the tale of a hidden lake in the woods, the lake of bones has powers which kills anyone who finds it. 

7. The album is out there since December 2015. After these months, could you advance something regarding new compositions?

Of course! We have 6 new songs already coming together for our second full-length. It should be longer and a bit more on the trash side of things than the first album. We don’t have a release date yet since there is still a lot of work to do. 

8. I think when a musician creates music is to, firstly, please himself, but do you think your songs are perfect for the nonconformist ears?

We never tried to fit within any specific metal type, so I guess we could say we are nonconformist. In the end, even though we hope people enjoy the music we write, we don’t write it to please other people. 

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

We don’t take ourselves seriously sometimes, so we’re usually the band that drinks beers in the crowd before and after the show and take part in the pit. I think some upcoming bands would need to loosen up a little, Skyhex is a bunch of dudes having fun making music we like. 

10. In general: What fascinates you about metal music? Is it the possibility to express aggression? Is it the energy which is usually conveyed in this music? Or is it something entirely different?

Every member of the band has their own taste in metal music. We listen to a lot of different styles of metal and other music some aggressive, some not. Sure metal can allow us to express some kind of aggression in a healthy way, but to us there is much more to it than that. We can’t really explain it, but metal is always around us. 

11. Could you give us a little insight into the metal-scene in Quebec? Are there many bands that play metal, and especially thrash metal? And how are gig-possibilities etcetera?

There is quite a big metal scene in Quebec, we have some great trash bands in the province that keep the scene alive. Death and hardcore bands are more common here though, so it can be hard to fit a trash band in a gig lineup, but there is still a bunch of underground gigs going on. We played with Anonymus a couple months ago, they are a Quebec metal band that’s been going strong for almost 30 years, so I guess we could say that metal is alive in Quebec.
