Introduce us to FATE in a quite short way.
In September 1994, the
adventure begins with Nito (batt), Stef(guit) and
What are your inluences? Are you listening to metal only or are you attracted, do you interest yourself to some other musical styles? And if this isn't the case, tell us why!
Our influences are
some bands like : Dying Fetus,
What were the CDs that killed you these last months?
Knut "Challenger" that
has got a big sound!!
Your band's name "Fate" means the destiny. Do you think one can take the "control" of his fate or eternally remain a victim? (This question ain't really a question as you're playing Brutal Death metal, a music style that's rebellious at its basis).
When you'll have played some Brutal Death that's really brutal and revolted for several years, do you think you could fall in somekind of desillusions and tell yourself "Shit, after all it's useless to get revolted against everythings" and to fall in a more depressive delirium such as what Lee Dorian did when he left NAPALM DEATH to fall in a totally opposed and almost masochist delirium on the first CATHEDRAL album? Do you see yourself playing a corrosive style one day?
3/ No, not
Do you conceive the musical extremism in any other way than by the complexity of the tracks that include a lot of surprises and with a good technical edge?
For me to be extreme doesn't essentially means to be fast or technical. It can be basic, efficient... And the breaks on which you can feel the mosh parts coming, it's also really extreme!
A member of the band uses some scratch turntables on stage. Do you achieve to mix this element with your Brutal death in a positive way? What were the reactions of the Die hard Underground Brutal death fans about this subject?
In fact, the
including of the scratchs came slowly? When we recorded the album,
Boox had just joined the band and couldn't be really present on
the recording. Since this time, 2 years have passed and he has really
increased, he'll be able to express himslef on the next album ;o)
introduce us to "Le commando", the association of wich
you're a part? It's concept and it's several activities...
concept of the commando seems to be quite near of an urban guerilla
delirium, a state of mind that would be nearer of Grindcore than
of the Death Metal that's as a whole more into the Gore or satanic
sides, but one can also feel somekind of a "hip hop" touch
at the level of the logo's design.
The theme of the Commando is more base on the conflits, the injustices than on the gore, in fact...we've got a few problems with the artworks but despise of it it's cool. There's in fact a hiphop touch on the logo, it fits better to the "urban" spirit, we're almost all coming from inner cities. Peoples reactions aren't too bad, they only think it's some noise !!!
Do you think a band can do a good promotion and keep enough energy to express in its music so that it would be of a good quality without any external help? (label, webmaster, manager)
Yes, but the needed ressources must be available and you must be able to share the tasks. We're quite lucky for this: Nito takes care of all the printings, I'm running the website (under reconstruction), we haven't got any manager but Xela has helped us a lot and Nito has taken back the booking, Deniz takes care of the merchandising... In short, it works, but you also need a good amount of money to record something good and without the help of a label it's not heasy...
The studio, have you got rather a good or a bad remembrance of it? Do you prefer it or are you rather at the right place when you play gigs? Give us your vision of a FATE gig!
This is a good
remembrance, we remained 10 days in the studio. It's not easy to
stay concentrated while the others are recording their parts or
when we're doing the mix. But it was anyway a pleasure ;)
What do you think about the french extreme metal scene? Is there some bands that you specially appreciate musically or on an human point of view in France? What's your opinion about the recognition of the French scene in the foreign countries?
There are some
really motivated peoples that are mentally opened and entreprising.
I think about Inhumate of course,
Blockheads, Morgue, Loathing (marseille), Imperial Sodomy, Eyeless, Es la
guerilla... The crews, labels, distros, radios, and the zines are to numerous
to quote them but they'll recognize themselves, and we thank them
for their support.
Have you got some other musical projects? Such as the members of GOTHIC who run a techno hardcore project... Maybe you run some not musical projetcs!
got a project that's called "THE SHUT UP FARM", line up :
What are your future projects?
At the time, composing a lot for our next album.... it's coming, a bit of patience...
These last words are yours, thanks for your time!
Thanks to all
those who follow use and support us, thank you for this interview
that I lost and I had to do again(!)
