Hello everyone and welcome back to the Band Interview Of The Day! We welcome to the Almost Anything family the epic German quartet, Darkest Horizon! They talk influences, some music they wouldn’t admit to owning and a few other things. Let’s dive in!
1. If could introduce yourselves for us, who are you?
Hi, we are Darkest Horizon, a German epic melodic death metal band from Frankfurt am Main.
2. How did you all meet?
We all have been in the same circle of metalheads in our region, played in the same bands, went to the same concerts. And when we joined the same band we became even closer and nowadays we are best friends. Best lovestory ever.
3. How long have you been playing?
As a band? This is our eleventh year though Enis joined us as a singer a few years later.
4. What three words would you use to describe the music you play?
Epical metallic soundtrack.
5. What are your musical influences?
Oh that’s a long list… actually anything from death metal to hip-hop and from orchestral soundtracks to 1960’s rock’n’roll. We try to not exclude anything for even in styles of music you don’t like you might find inspiration for something new. That’s one of the great things about making music.
6. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen during a show?
Actually I don’t recall anything really weird… there was one time Daniel and I witnessed the huge decolleté of a lady headbanging in the first row and her whole body followed the circles of her neck whilst headbanging. We were so fascinated we almost fell off the stage. Maybe we are too easy to manipulate…
7. Being away from the stages since last year, where is the one place you’d visit when the restrictions are lifted?
You mean as a concert location? Actually any stage we can play on. We have been absent for far too long, we just want to perform!
And privately spoken I am looking forward to visit some of my favorite places again like Finland, the Ukraine or Prague. Love it there.
8. What’s the one record you own but wouldn’t ever admit to owning?
Hmm I think it is a Westlife CD *laughs* In case anyone still knows who they were. They have also been my very first concert as a kid… a lot has changed since then!
9. What have you been listening in the last few weeks?
I have been listening to a lot of 60’s and 70’s music like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Elton John. These artists are (or were) simply amazing! Today you have lots of computers and digital programs and so on but these were the days of raw productions and good music. And everything we know today was built on top of that.
10. Are there any releases you have planned in the near future?
Yes, or next single will be released in June (so stay tuned)! And we are working on more songs and plan on keeping releasing, so there will be a lot more releases within the next months.
