We have talk with the rockers LIVIN FIRE from Poland, their debut album titled "Under The Spell" is now available on every worldwide webstores thru Heart Of steel Records!
Well guys I've been listening your new album titled "Under the Spell" and I think that's awesome!
....We ask them a few questions;
1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Livin Fire was formed around 3 years ago by two absolute maniacs of 80s music and stuff: a vocalist and a guitarist Alda Reï and a guitarist J. K. Shredd.
They are the composers of all the music and lyrics on “Under the Spell”. The rest of the band you can hear on the album are Matt B. on drums and Alvaro on bass. Right now Livin Fire is under some changes within members but Alda Reï and J.K. Shredd are constant. The new members are Sonia Zaucha on bass guitar and we have a second guitar player called Shadow. You will soon be able to hear them live as well as on our future records. New members are also 80s music maniacs and it is a real pleasure to work with such people as the passion is the most important aspect for us. Without it, it would be hard to build anything together.
2. what is the source of inspiration for the lyrics? Who writes them?
The lyrics are written by Alda. Inspiration comes from many sources it could be a book or a movie, some urban legends or situations from life. Important aspects are emotions put in the lyrics and its live interpretation.
3. Why did you call the album "Under the spell"?
It is the reference to our song “Witch”. We wanted to set the whole album in this magical context.
4. How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We like to describe our music as an 80s inspired hard’n’heavy. We try to mix all that is best in hard rock and heavy metal and 80s rock/ metal scene is for sure our biggest inspiration. We are total music maniacs and it is really hard to choose the bands that influenced Livin Fire. For sure we should name such bands as Dokken, Ratt, Motley Crue, Judas Priest or Warlock. There are many more, we could make a really huge list of such bands J There are so many great bands from that time..
5. Where was it recorded who produded it and how long did the process take?
It was recorded in local record studio in Cracow. The whole process took a few months until the EP was ready.
6. Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Of course we play live. We love live shows where we can share our energy with other music maniacs. We try to play as much as we can although because of changes among our members we had to take a little break lately. Soon we hope to start again with a brand new power.
7. How did you hook up with DeFox Records and how have you found working with them?
We saw an announcement in the Internet that DeFox Records is looking for some female fronted heavy metal bands to work with. It didn’t take long for us to decide to message them. It all began soon after.
8. How do you think about the international rock music scene? and the scene in Poland?
There are many rock and metal bands all around the world. The "retro" bands have quite huge attention, no matter if they are inspired by 60s, 70 or 80s rock.
Those sounds are timeless and still relevant to most of the fans. When it comes to music scene in Poland it’s quite different. Radio "rock" bands are often poppy and overproduced, and the metal scene is rather strong with death, black and thrash. There are some bands that play classic metal or rock, but the scene isn't very big yet. We hope it will change in the near future!
9. What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Our major plan is to introduce new Livin Fire live on shows really soon. Possibly at an early day we’ll also record a single or two to show you an improved sound we worked really hard on recently. We can’t wait to hear what you will think of it.
10. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Thanks to DeFox Records you can listen to Livin Fire almost everywhere! Be it Spotify or last.fm. You can buy our music through DeFox Records as well.
