Superterrestrial – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
S: Just a collective of like-minded musicians, making music that we want to hear
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
S: Formed in 2017 with a clear goal of writing space-themed black metal and combining it with dark ambient synths. A couple of us had played in bands together before and we had continued writing music, once we had enough material we recruited some like minded individuals to help us get everything recorded
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
S: We are influenced by all the forms of Black Metal so it’s hard to name just 1, from the more classic black metal, atmospheric black metal, DSBM, and so on. For the synth part it is mainly inspired by a lot of the great soundtrack composers, John Carpenter mainly, but again, inspiration is far and wide.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
S: We just keep it simple, to make music, wherever that leads us is where we want to be
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
S: Everything is written by our 2 guitarists/vocalists, and all about anything that is above our planet
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
S: Mainly just by putting our music out, we have it available through a label at https://greenflaw.bandcamp.com
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
S: We are big fans of making music available so everyone can make their choice as to how they want it
PD: What’s your outlook on the record industry today?
S: We try not to focus too much on the wider industry, just on what we are doing but it is great that it is now easier to get your music out there. However it does mean that as a fan the really good stuff can be harder to find.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
S: Sabrina by Einstürzende Neubauten – watch the video and all will be explained
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
S: We don’t like to discriminate so everything annoys us, it’s just easier that way
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
S: That moment you have the finished product in your hands, something you have poured countless hours of your life into, always beaten by the next one of course….
PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there
S: Nothing booked yet, but when we do, it’ll be out of this world!
