The Evenfall Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Hi, thanks for this interview. We are The Evenfall, a Progressive Metal from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

2.Recently you have released an album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
Our debut album, The Waiting Room, handles a very particular sound. It shifts through a lot of moods, atmospheres, according to its concept. From a lovely cozy passage changes to a raw heavy one, creating the constant movement across the story.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
As i mentioned, it's a concept album. The Waiting Room is the mixture of thoughts, feelings and actions of the main character of this story. It is narrated through a metaphor: a room full of objects and at the same time empty, lacking meaning.
The album is about the daily challenges and crossroads the character goes through, and in a more utopic level the pursuit of  permanent happiness.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'The Evenfall'?
The Evenfall is something that happens in a cycle. The Sun goes down, after very different stages, and the next day it happens again. We are trapped inside this circle. The Evenfall tries to get out of it, to seek further horizons, and remove the routine.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Our very best show was at La colorada, Argentina. It was the perfect mixture between music and visual.
Our stage performance is quite eclectic. We try to generate a bridge that connects the audience to the very inside of the music, that is what really counts. The atmosphere is all, it's something yo have to live directly at the venue.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Yes, we are touring in Buenos Aires in a couple of month, when the CD is fully promoted.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
We are unsigned but we were contacted recently by a mayor local label, so we are trying to work things around. Of course, we are open for new proposals.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of progressive metal?
It's quite astonishing how the CD was received. We've got a lot of great feedback from people from countries like the Netherlands, Germany, and the US. Thank guys for buying the record!

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We don't actually want to know. We like to constantly evolve musically and mentally, so we don't know where we are heading.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Our influences are many: Genesis, Deep Purple, King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard, The Tangent, Pain of Salvation, Symphony X, among others.
We enjoy a lot of music: Steven Wilson (always near perfection), The Dear Hunter, Haken, Anathema.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
We love football, watching and playing it.

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