INTERVIEW WITH MATTHEW BACHAND

Hello, how's life treating ya?

 

SF: Very well, thanks.

 

Your new album was picked as album of the week in our webzine when it came out, you

must be really good, huh?

 

SF:  If you say so, didn’t pick it. Haha.

 

But I am sure you're getting that kind of exposure everywhere these days,

right?

 

SF:  Yeah more or less.  Things have been really great so far, lets hope it will continue.

 

There's a definite old-school feel to your music, but it's still quite

modern sounding in a lot of ways. Do you think that's what we need these

days: old school metal for the modern age?

 

SF:  Definitely.  At least that’s what I want to hear, so that’s what I write.

 

Do you think that there's a chance that NWOAHM will influence the metal

world today in the same way that NWOBHM did in the old days?

 

SF: I believe it already as started. A lot of young bands coming up are mentioning ourselves, lamb of god, killswitch engage, and chimaira as influences.  That’s really great to see!

 

In, like, no time you've gone from being a underrated metal band on Century

Media to being one of the most talked about bands in metal. Is there a long

road from being talked about a lot to being a rockstar?

 

SF: It’s always been a long road… we have been together and touring since 1996 and I don’t see it ending anytime soon. It has been quite a journey so far and there is still a long way to go.

 

So what happens now in the Shadows Fall camp?

 

SF:  A few weeks off until we hit the road and tour for the next year or so.

 

Last comment?

 

SF:  Thanks a lot and see you on the road!
