Hi! Tell me about Sense of Fear. Why did you decide to name the band with such title? What kind of ideas do you explore?
Hi there. Thank you for having me here. It is a name which came from personal experiences and some very deep and dark feelings. We believe that fear is a key instinct for humans to survive. Moreover, we think that it suits the atmosphere that our songs share.
“As The Ages Passing By…” going to be released soon. How does that make you feel? Do you feel you have put album into masses without any wishes to change something now?
It feels great man. We spend the last 20 years thinking of this release ahhahhah. For us is very important. It’s like having a child. The feeling is very strong and we are very proud for our achievement.
Tell me more about “As The Ages Passing By…”? Album ideas etc…
Our lyrics came mostly from personal experiences, thoughts and feelings, our own perspective to the world also some good stories and metaphors. The name of our debut album came from the last song, which has the big title “As The Ages Passing By, Time Still Runs Against Us” and it is also our longest song (9 minutes). These 9 minutes are my own perspective of what is happening to our world. It’s a strong song and we decide it to be the title of our album but with its half title so that every fan can fill it the way he wants.
The album was recorded in Thessalonikh in Valve Studios. Our producer called Stratos “Strutter” Karagiannidis(W.A.N.T.E.D., Wardrum,Gus G, Jaded Star) and mixed and mastered by Rd Liapakis (Mystic Prophecy, Devil’s Train) and C.Schmid in Prophecy Studios in Germany(Mystic Prophecy, Suicidal Angels, Crystal Tears and more)
The cover of the album was made by Colin Marks (Nevermore, Exodus etc)
Where do you take all inspiration from?
Our inspiration came mostly from personal experiences, thoughts and feelings, presenting our own perspective to the world.
In your opinion, what is the best way to define Sense of Fear’s sound?
Our best description for our music is Dark/Aggressive Metal. This is our description. But if you want to put it into a ready-made genre, well then you have to say it’s close to heavy/thrash/power.
So, are you on hiatus now, just relaxed and looking for album feedbacks, or did you started to compose new stuff immediately?
We have 10 complete tracks for our second album and 4 complete tracks for our third. We choose not to relax. We always enjoy creating new music.
What are your main musical influences? How huge is their influence in your sound?
We have influences from all the metal music because we like all the genres. Of course our influences are clear to our songs and to our sound and this is something that we like. I believe there is nothing today to feels like new in the music business.
Is there some well-known musician in particular that you would like to use in one of your upcoming albums?
Well I always have in my mind to use Tim “Ripper” Owens for a track making a corporation with Ilias (our singer). Also I would like to use Alissa’s White-Gluz growls for a track and a symphonic voice for a second track for our second album.
What is your personal strategy for making your music heard by a larger audience?
Of course touring on more and more countries in the globe every time.
Do you have any other hobby beside music?
I love to watch movies and series when I have time but with my job and the band there is no time for other hobbies.
Are you all supported by your relatives towards your devotion to music?
Yes I have fully support from our family and my wife thanks God ahhahhahaha.
Thank you for answering my questions, see ya on the road!
Thank you a lot for having me here. Keep the spirit alive and stay metal.
