Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: How would you describe yourself or your band as an artist?
E: Enmity is an extreme Metal band with old school death/thrash metal influence.
PD: Can you tell us briefly about your background – i.e., where you’re from, how you came to make music, etc.
E: We are a bunch of people spread around the globe from France to the Middle east to Indonesia, joined as friends and our passion to create music together, some of us are active or used to be active in the music scene. In Enmity we have this great creative process and we all complete each other.
PD: Who and what inspires you to make music, both in terms of musical and other influences? What do you like to write about in your songs?
E: We are affected by the social and political events around us, we take all that and put it in making music, some form of resistance maybe, the world pushes us humans and we push back with music.
PD: What are your aspirations as an artist?
E: To keep on making good music and share it with everyone.
PD: What is the proudest moment in your music career so far?
E: Well, releasing our debut album is our proud moment now, it’s been 2-years in the making and we are proud that it is finally coming out.
PD: Promoting one’s music is such a challenge these days, especially with so many new artists emerging from bedrooms in the day of the home studio. How is that going?
E: It is a challenge, but when you love what you do, you do what you can and push for your material to be exposed to as many people as possible, then do it again and again.
PD: And how do you book and promote your live shows and tours? Any performances coming up?
E: We are not focused on live shows now although we got some invitations for some, we want our music to be out first then we can hassle with the tour side of it.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online? What about streaming sites like Spotify?
E: It depends on each artist I think, some has no issue with having their music being available everywhere. Sharing music (legally or illegally) is part of the world we live in, each deal with it in their own way. Spotify and such I personally don’t use, but it is out there.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
E: We are writing what we wish to hear and having a good time with that.
PD: Is there anything you don’t like about the music industry, which you would change if you could?
E: That it is stripped down to become an industry instead of a community.
PD: So, what are you working on at the moment?
E: Finishing up a 2 song EP after our albums release.
PD: Where can we learn more about you and buy your music/merch online?
E: Our website and affiliates…
