Sludgelord conducted an interview with Italian sludge / post-metal / post-hardcore band RISE ABOVE DEAD.
Q) For those people who are unfamiliar with your music, can you tell me a little bit about your history? Where you’re from, when Rise Above Dead first formed? Current band members?
A) Rise Above Dead were formed in Milan, Italy in 2009. Besides some of us living in the UK today, that’s where we all are from. Since day one, our main goal has always been to play something different from the rest of the metal and hardcore bands living in our area. Actually we never wanted to be part of a certain “scene”, so we never felt like we wanted to be associated with something already existing.
Q) How would you describe Rise Above Dead’s sound? Has it evolved?
A) Sure it did evolved through the years. Back in the day when we started, our songs were all pretty fast and short, with more of a punk hardcore attitude.Now there are a lot of down-tempos and the songs are way longer, with many different parts and influences.
