In Dread Response - In Dread Response Newsletter Interview

04 Mar 2012 // An interview by Shade
 

Thanks to Trajan for answering these questions for muzic.net.nz:

What can we expect to see from In Dread Response over the next year?

We're working on the follow up album to 'Embers In The Spiritless Void' which we hope to be a big one. We're tossing up the idea of a double album solely because we have so much material to work with and we feel it's all pretty strong stuff. If it doesn't become a double album it we'll probably release some songs as a limited EP, hand numbered. Sort of like a little thank you to those who turn up to shows and by our merch instead of just downloading. We're cool with the downloading, you're just missing out on the artwork/layout/lyrics, the full package. I heard a few rumours about us skipping across the ditch to tour so we'll see how that goes. We'll definitely be playing as many shows as we can around NZ. We haven't been down to the south island in a while so we're due to pay them a visit and wreak our own brand of havoc down there.

How do you describe In Dread Response's music?

Our music is a blend of Melodic Death metal with elements of Doom and Thrash. It's fairly straight forward without any odd time signatures to throw you off. While a lot of other bands are competing for who is the heaviest we concentrate on melodic progressions and song structure and deliver it as intensely as possible.

What is in your CD collection at home?

Everything AC/DC have put out, a lot of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Testament, Slayer, I think I can see The Cars Greatest Hits, Converge, I'd like to say it's eclectic and varied but it really isn't. I love my old school bands.

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

Keep things fun. It's not easy to find 4 or 5 individuals, whittle your influences down to a few and align your schedules to fit around music while maintaining order and mutual respect for each other. Learn all the lessons you can from clinics, live shows. There is a reason why professional bands get all the praise, it's because they do things a certain way and of course there are things that they don't do. If the pro's don't do them then you shouldn't do them either unless you are 100% sure you possess untapped genius. So keep things pro and keep things fun.

 

About In Dread Response

In Dread Response are a five piece metal band hailing from Auckland.

Having spent the better part of two years preparing their exceptional live act it becomes very evident it's been far too long since you have seen this amount of energy and power on stage.

With their music based on melody and intensity, In Dread Response succeeds in evoking emotions usually reserved for tragic epic movie moments and near death experiences.
