Suppression - Suppression Newsletter Interview

23 Feb 2011 // An interview by Shade
 

Thanks to Duane for answering these questions:

What can we expect to see from Suppression over the next year?

Finishing off our recordings then getting into the studio to record our 1st single and video to promote it. Then more shows throughout the North Island and hopefully a few shows down south.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Keep getting out to more shows and getting inspired and meeting new people to put on bigger gigs in your town, and of course practise makes perfect.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

In Dread Response, Tainted, Just One Fix, Pariah, Intergracia etc. All wicked bands live that put on a mean as stage show and are all round good people to hang out with also.

What will your next release be?

Hopefully our debut EP later on in the year.

How do you come up with your lyrics?

Usually from life’s experiences & observations of what the stupid people of the world do throughout their miserable lives.

Who would you most like to support live?

Slayer, Lamb of God, Machine Head, Chimaira, Trivium or Black label society.

How do you believe Suppression fits into the NZ music industry?

We hope to stand out from the masses of NZ metal bands as being a bit different and more appealing to not only metal fans but any music fans.

What can you never leave home without?

Mp3 player with all the metal classics loaded into it.

How do you describe Suppression’s music?

Suppression’s sound would be best described as Heavy Metal

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Our favourite local would have to be Bar Medusa & have always liked the Kings Arms in Auckland too.

What is the best part of being a musician?

Being able to express yourself through a big wall of crushing sound!

What NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Tainted and Just One Fix, we played a few shows with them as part of the Metal Bar Tour and they put on a sick live show nite after nite, a lot can be learned from bands such as these.

What is in your CD collection at home?

A big healthy slab of NZ metal/rock cds and from all the genres Fear Factory, Slayer, Sepultura, The Doors, The tea party etc

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Dropping my microphone on stage and not being able to find it for what seemed to be an eternity! Lucky then were not many punters there tho.

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

On a secluded beach away from the hustle and bustle of the city-life. With beers and loud music.

What inspired you to start Suppression?

Just the love of writing and playing music, and obviously inspiration comes from your favourite bands.

How did you come up with the name Suppression?

Brainstorming sessions.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

We are only new to the scene but probably one of the shows we played with Tainted and Just One Fix in Wanganui last year. Mean as sounds, Bands and awesome atmosphere and mates.

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Usually via Facebook as MySpace has kind of gone down the drain over the last year or two. And usually at the gigs we play and attend throughout the year.

What rumour would you like to start about Suppression?

That Suppression could well be one of the beastiest metal bands in the Wellington Scene.
