Interview: BEFORE US ALL

Linz, Austria trio Before Us All talked with Metal Horizons about their latest album "Deception" which was released back in September last year.

Alright, first thing is first. Before we dive into all the music stuff, how's life?
Great, thanks! Quiet busy sometimes, always something to do.
Speaking of new music, you have an album. What can people expect from “Deception”?
This time we followed a harder way of music since we decided to not do any clean vocals and we focused on heavy guitar riffs along with blasting drums, a growling bass topped with melodic leads here and then.
If you like Lamb of God, Devildriver, Machine Head, etc you will also like our album Deception. These bands had an high influence on this one but we also created our own style which you will recognize.
What was it like working on the album?
It was a long and hard road to finish this album, we had a couple of lineup changes the past years so we ended up to write, record and produce “Deception” as 3 but we are highly satisfied with the outcome.
The biggest aspect of working on the album was to do no tradeoffs, if we didn’t like a part of a song or even a complete song, we reworked it until everybody was happy or it didn’t make it on the album.
Are there any touring plans in support to “Deception”?
Yes, we have some dates in Austria and Germany which we will announce soon, so like us on Facebook and stay tuned.
While we are on the subject of touring, what countries would you love to tour?
We had amazing times in Czech Republic in the past and we will definitely go back there but there are still so many countries we’d like to visit.
A big dream would be of course the United States of America.

Who and what inspires you the most?
As already mentioned we have big influences from Lamb of God and we do listen to them a lot. Mostly we are inspired by listening to music from different bands and genres.
What other genres of music do you listen to? Have any of the other genres you listen to had any impact on your playing?
Inside the metal genre we have quit a wide pool of genres we are listening to since every band member likes some bands which the others don’t like.
Besides metal there are also many great genres like rock and blues which you will also hear through our headphones from time to time.
If there is any impact on our playing is really hard to tell since more and more genres are mixing up and you can’t really tell what influences you hear there.
We would be curious which impacts you guys can hear on our album.
I really appreciate you giving us your time today. Is there anything else you would like to tell us and the fans before we wrap things up?
Thanks for inviting us.

Big shout out to all our fans who were supporting us during the past years and we will see you on stage soon.
"Deception" is out now and is available from Bandcamp.
