EMQ’s with WARFAITH
Hi Everyone. Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with French Thrash Metal band Warfaith. Huge thanks to them for taking part!
What is your name, what do you play and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?
Already, Warfaith is five friends who like to have a good time playing Thrash Metal. There’s only one way to work: to laugh one’s head off. The band was founded in 2012 with 4 of its 5 actual members.
How did you come up with your band name?
At first, it was ‘Warfare’ but connotations with a modest video game made us change our name 😉 .There’s no special meaning. The band was founded before us, with other members, we just tried to keep almost the same name.
What country are you from and what is the metal scene like there?
We come from France, the homeland of wine, baguette and snails. The scene in France is poorly represented as far as Thrash is concerned, so we play what we like and how we want it.
What is your latest release (Album, EP, Single, Video)?
Our latest release is our new EP “Pint Of Pils”, a concentrate of funny mood, beer and its effect & cats and zombies.
Who have been your greatest influences?
Inspiration is quite varied because we listen to many different styles of music that can lead to good ideas when we are together. In general, we have a base of composition and each of us brings back his ideas and his personal touch while keeping fast music with powerful and heavy riffs. One of the advantages of working this way is that we can all express ourselves. Warfaith is what it is due to each one of us.
What first got you into music?
That’s a good question…. Beer?
If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?
Municipal Waste, Slayer, Kreator, and for our drummer, Sepultura.
If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?
Hellfest, why not? Because it’s in France, there are always great bands and the atmosphere is crazy.
What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?
No gift from a fan, sorry, except a beer but it’s not a strange gift 😉
If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?
Thrash, beer and cats (they will dominate the world one day!)
If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?
Dimebag Darrell with no hesitation!
What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?
We don’t take ourselves seriously and that’s the more important point, so we hate the opposite, mannequin clips and Auto-Tune.
If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
Auto-Tune, and orange juice at a festival.
Name one of your all-time favourite albums?
Justin Bieber – Under the Mistletoe
What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?
What’s the best gig that you have played to date?
The Rising Fest at Dijon. The best organization we have seen to date.
If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?
Our jobs, we do them as well as music by the way.
Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?
4 cats and the Pope.
What’s next for the band?
Promotion of our EP, drinking beers and maybe a festival.
What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?
We use a lot of media like Deezer, Spotify, YouTube and Facebook to only cite a few.
Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?
Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?
Enjoy life, take care of your cat. And thanks for this interview!
