COLLIDER - ENTREVISTA

Otro interesante proyecto que nos llega desde Cánada. Collider es una banda novel, que en breve editarán nuevo trabajo y que podríamos encuadrar por sonido a la estela de Mastodon. High of Fire, Baroness...., es decir sludge pero con suficiente personalidad y rabia como para hacerlos participes de sonidos más exremos, llámese en este caso concreto black metal. Al habla con Ethan, todo un placer. Boas noites.

Hello good evening to you?, Thank you very much for agreeing to answer these questions.

1. Could you tell us a little as has been the process of composing this work? What issues have motivated you when composing?

We basically started this band and wrote the album over the spring months. Shortly after we began playing live shows, mainly in our home town Ottawa, Canada. After about 6 months of playing live shows we booked some studio time and recorded our three song EP.
I would have to say the the main reason, and the best reason, that motivates us to write music is getting to hangout with your best friends, drink beer, and play heavy music.

2. Are you preparing new songs for a new job?


Yes, we are currently writing new material! We have no set schedule for any recording right now but we are definitely working on some new heavy music. You guys will be some of the first to know when we do have it all planned out.

3. Tell us a little type of equipment that you use in the recording sessions and live performances.


We all used pretty much the same gear we play live with for our first EP. Although we have some really big cabs that we love to play live with! Two 6x12 guitar cabs and one 8x12 bass cab. They are really really loud.



4. What concepts include your lyrics?


For the first EP, we had named the songs before we wrote lyrics, so when it came time to write lyrics we all had some cool ideas based off the song title. For example our song Titana Boa. We all thought the riffs sounded slithery and snake like. So we named the song after one of the biggest snakes and the lyrics were more or less about this giant snake.

5. How were your beginnings in music? Groups and disks What are your sources of inspiration?


Three of us have been playing in a few bands together for about 8 years. We all grew up loving music and all wanting to play music to be in a band.
We all listen to different music on our own time. But when it comes to writing music for this band, we just like being as heavy as we can be. I think it's safe to say that Mastodon, High on Fire, and Baroness have had their influences on our music.


6. How difficult is the coexistence within the group? Who is the leader of the now compose, or all aportáis ideas and you respect?


We are all very good friends and really have a good time hanging out together. Everyone works really with each other and there is a good chemistry between the four of us. We all have equal amounts of input for our music when it comes to writing.

7. Collider Where does the current scene?


I guess if I had to describe our band to someone it would be that we are a sludge metal band. We have gotten different feedback from people but it always comes back to being sludgy.




8. How are the concerts being? What takes it to share the bill with COC?


Our shows have always been really fun. We've been really lucky to play with some really good touring bands and have some really good crowds!
Being on the same bill as COC was very cool! Those guys have done everything over their long career, so to share the same stage as them was very memorable.

9. Kvelertak, Mastodon and are two groups that the listener is going through your head when listening to your EP, Do you feel identified with these bands?
 
I personally love Mastodon. They are one of my favorite bands around! I definitely get pumped up when I listen to their music. I always would love for someone to get that same feeling when listening to our band.

  10. Thank you very much for your time, if you want to add something for people who like to Collider this is it, thanks.  I hope the questions are to your liking.
