Face Down Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
- We're just a bunch of guys doing what we do, and hoping to be able to make everybody have the best time of their lives while listening to the album or seeing us live.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?- It depends on who you ask, we've all got a variety of musical influences, but of course we've got something in common, and that's what makes us do what we do and love every riff and little detail of it.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?-Lyrical wise I try and make them accord to the southern style that we have, of course some of them relate to some hard situations that I've been through, and I like to try too to send a message out, commenting on some of the bad situations of todays society and world.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?The meaning of the name... well truly it's just about not giving up and keeping your head high. I'd say maybe a bit of putting your troubles on your back, and plowing though with your own will power too.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
- It depends, the concert we had with Lofofora was incredible but it was a different vibe than the concerts we've had in small bars and concert rooms, there we were all so close that the exchange of energy was incredible, and that's what I love most about what we do, I'm an in your face with the public kind of guy. 
Stage performance wise... I'd say energetic, definitely energetic, being a public bound guy, I love to go and scream in the faces of the guys down in the pit. 

6. Do you have any touring plans for the future?
- Unfortunately not as of yet, but hopefully very soon we will, it'd be incredible to cross the great pond and play our backsides off over there.

7. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label and if so what kind of label do you feel that would be a perfect fit for the music?- We're not really looking for a label at this moment because Black wave is taking good care of us in the promotion department and in finding us a nice number of quality concerts. We'll see for the second album if we get any offers, but it's not what we're concentrated on at this precise moment, right now we just want to concentrate on doing some nice gigs and kicking everyone's ass!!!

8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of metal and sludge?
- Up to now we haven't had very much, but the little that we've had has been motivating. We'll see as we go on doing more shows and get a bit more exposure out there.

9. Are there any other musical projects besides this band or is this a full time line up?
- One for all, and all for Face down. hehe

10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
- Time will tell, but for sure they'll be as kickass as the first one.

11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
- As I said before, our music comes from a variety of styles and one common factor "metal", each one of us have groups that the other guys don't like and others that they do, a common factor could possibly be Pantera, but I think essentially that maybe we all like different parts of their songs, and thus, they all being in the same group, make us a little on the same path.

12. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
- Personally I'm a sports addict.

13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
- Just to stay tuned for future concerts all round, and be prepared to be blown away!!! hehe
