DeadlySins Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Since the recording of the album, we play some gigs to show our fans how our new song are killing !
We are also on promotion way, with lot of interviews, lot of cd sends to label and webzine.

2.A few months back you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how this it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
We play thrash metal since 2003 and we like it !
The new album kills ! It's in the same way of thrash metal of our past release, but with a very better sound !
We have also include influences of our new musicians like death metal drumming parts.

3.The band has been around since 2000 but so far has only released a demo, ep and 2 full lengths, can you tell us a little bit more about the gap between releases?

First, the band is born in 2000 but play heavy metal stuffs for few years because it was the principal influence of the band member in this time.
In 2003, only Lk and LB rest. Inspired by bay area and german thrashing metal bands, we spend time to find the good musicians to complete our line up.
It's done in 2004, and we play somme gigs before recording our fisrt demo.
Between 2004 and 2012, we record one demo, one ep and one album. And play a lot of gigs. the time between these release is just the time to write new stuff, to play gigs and to win money to record another material.
In 2012, with the departure of 2 memebers, we had to find another time the good musicians to play with. We rapidly found them, but after, we have to learn to play our past songs with them and play gigs.
then go back in writting mode to be able to realase our new album.
Music take times. Music take money.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

In the beginning, we want to spoke about gardening or knitting,....but finally we prefer to speak about Zombis, serial killers, war, sometimes personal feelings, but there is always a story about drinking beer and moshing with friends..

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'DeadlySins'?

When we have to choose a name, we think about song's names of band we like.
There is a song we liked at the moment, which is called Deadly Sleep.
But after reflexion, "Sleep" in french is the same sound of "slip" which is mean "panties".
and we don't want to be called "Deadly panties" ! But "Deadly" was a cool word....
In Iron Maiden's Moonchild, the lyrics in the beginning of the song are : Seven Deadly sins, seven ways to win.
As great Iron Maiden's fan, we love this name ! DeadlySins was born !

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Our stage performance is a melting of balls. high power. speed. brutal, groovy and melodic parts; All their things plays with lot of fun and beer.
Opening for Death Angel, bay area thrash legend, was very great !
But for us, our best show, is the opening gig for Mumakil. The audiance was very amazing, the pit was so violent and crazy.

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We are actually in search for booking and touring. Contact us !

8.The new album was self released, are the band members open to working with a label or do you prefer the DIY approach a lot more?

We want to work with a label ! Contact us !
But today, it's a dream. 95% of the French band are in DIY way. It’s a reality.
Not by choice but by necessity.
In France, the music business is not interested about metal stuff. We have a big local underground scene, with lot of very good bands, but French music industry is not interested about it because you don’t heard metal in classical media.
The majority of us want to be payed do play music and to record albums. But today, they need to have a job, and pay to live their music’s dreams.

I liked the idea of DIY spirit, with a complete control of all parts of the business.
But If someone want to give us money to record new albums,…..please contact us ! We want ! lol

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

We had a wonderful feedback by thrash metal fans mainly in US and Easter Europe.
We have been selected by THRASHMANIA FB PAGE (USA)  to be one of the best thrash album of 2014.
In France, the underground metal people are more in black metal, death metal or grind.

10.Are any of the band members also involved with any other musical projects or bands these days?

Yes, Lambert is the lead singer of LUGH
And Kevin plays with several bands like Svart Crown, Mithridatic, Death Lab, The Arisen and play live session for Aggressor, Melechesh and many more !
LK and LB are working together on a very different material.

12.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?
THRAAAAAASH !!!!! It's our more evident influences. The old school band from bay area and Germany scenes like : Testament, Exodus, Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Sodom, Tankard…..
But we also came from different scene and we put all good things in our music. Kevin like tehcnical Death metal, Lambert like heavy things,...I really like Disco music but I don’t understand why my band mate always say no about incorporate it…
To be serious, all styles of music have good things. We listen to a lot of style and take what we love on it….but we always go back to our Thrash roots !

13.What are some of your non musical interests?

Mine ? Sport ! Winter sport, martial arts, basketball....
I also like travelling and discovering countries.

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