Discipline X Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a  
little bit about the band?

We are crossover thrash band from Finland and we have been together  
since 2007. There are four members in the band and we create our music 
and lyrics together.

2.How would you describe your musical style for those that have yet to 
hear the music?

Our music is a combination of old school thrash metal and punk rock.

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and  
subjects the band explores with the music?

The lyrics deals with real life themes like drinking, relationships,  
lost love and sloppy women. We hate themes about dragons, swordsmen,  
capricorns and kind of fairytale stuff.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Discipline x'?

Discipline describes our musical attitude. We had to add this X  
because we found out there is already the punk rock band called  
Discipline in Holland.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the  
years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We play with hard attitude, we do not show mercy for ourselves, for  
our instruments or neither for the audience. The best show has been  
probably in Seinäjoki, there were plenty of crowd, it was our first  
performance in this pretty distant city. And we love to be on stage,  
that 30 ? 45 min on stage is worth of all these numerous hours we have 
worked for our band in every week.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

Yes, some gigs have booked already but we wish we could get some more.

7.The band is signed to inverse Records, are you happy with the  
support they haven given you so far?

Yes, they can give us much wider worldwide promotion and distribution  
than we could do by ourselves. They also give us fast replies and good 
advises if we have something to ask.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans 
of punk and thrash metal?

The feedback has been very positive by this far. Sometimes we feel  
that US and South American people respect us much more than the  
Finnish people.

9.Where do you you see the band heading into musically during the future?

This new debut album is the first one where we used two guitars so  
maybe we will develop this twin guitar sound in the future. And of  
course we will try to learn to write better and catchier songs all the 

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have had an influence on 
your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We love bands like Misfits, Slayer, Anthrax, Metallica, The Exploited, 
D.R.I, Suicidal Tendencies and so on. But we does not sound exactly  
like these bands, our mix is very unique.

11.What are some of your interests outside of music?

We have to take care about our work and studying, spend time with  
families and have some good time with our friends.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

We want to say BIG thank you to all US supporters who has believed in  
us over all these years!
