Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
SS: Hello Guys ! Thanks for your interest ! We are Social Scream from Sparta-Greece . We consider ourselves as a Heavy Metal band with both old school and modern elements on our sound. We perform as a 4 piece band and our goal is to spreading out our message through writing good music and performing energetic live shows.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
SS: We have be around since 2008. We started as a cover band and then by developing our sound we started to compose and release our own music. By now we have 3 albums which are Epiclesis, Initiation to the Myths and the brand new Organic Mindset!
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
SS: Our mainly musical influences are metal scenes of 80’s and 90’s. But besides that we love to listen and influenced by many other musical genres like pop, rock, blues, synth, orchestral music etc. Our non-musical influences came by our life experiences and our perspectives about life, society, nature, science and mythology.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
Our goal is to spread our message and musically communicate with as much people as possible. We hope to stay healthy and productive and do this for many years !
PD: Who writes your songs?
SS: Our singer and guitarist Vlasis Diamantakos is responsible for all music and lyrics of Social Scream.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
SS: Nowadays even the downloading is “old news”. Most of the people listen to music through streaming platforms and applications. That way you could listen everything everywhere through your phone or computer which is great, but nothing compares to the enjoyment of listening an LP or CD in front of a good sound system and a booklet on your hands.
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
SS: When we received the package of cd’s of our 1st album. It is the moment you holding on your hands a part of yourself!
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
SS: Right now we promoting our new album “Organic Mindset” which was released by Heart Of Steel records at March 10th. We are very satisfy about the feedback we received so far from the fans and the media. Also we are working on the re-recordings of our first 2 albums which are going to be released as a 2cd combination probably next year.
PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
SS: Unfortunelly due to coronavirus expansion all our upcoming shows cancelled or postponed. We are hoping all this madness ends soon with no farther losses. Public health is the priority now and we could reschedule our live performances when things come back to normal.
