OBM: Please describe your band in a few words!
Eths has been formed in 1999 with Staif and Greg (guitar) roswell (bass) guillaume (drum) and Candice (singer). We made two maxi cd’s “Autopsie” recorded in 1999 and “Samantha” in 2002. Our first album “Soma” came out in 2004. We make a violent and sweet music at the same time followed by a back bitter taste, we like being on stage which is a sharing moment with the public and a release. That music clam is our spirit in our every day’s life.
OBM: How would you describe your sound?
We alternate a raw aggressive metal music with a troubling and dark harmony. A surprising female voice melted of shouts and sweetness.
OBM: What are some of your lyrically influences? Is there any other that influences you that we wouldn’t expect?
Everything can inspire us and the musicians who compose have many different influences what urges us to go farther than heavy metal music. We like mixing our musical tastes and we are opened to every kind of music but we are united by metal music. For the lyrics, all which surrounds me is interesting to set for example the childhood, the human being and quite his aspects, feelings from the inside, the phobias etc.!
OBM: So is lyric writing often a collaboration between all the band members?
I write the lyrics and the musicians write the music but all is decided in community. Each one delivers his opinions and help with the creation process of the songs.
OBM:Which feeling was it for you, when you recorded your first full length album?
I was much less under stress than now because there was less stake than previously, in 1999 we had to lose nothing and to gain everything, now it is different! In most you’re catching your head.
OBM: Was it a hard way, from the beginning with the band, up to now?
The most complicated is that the person which is listen to your cd does not say itself” it’s not bad for a girl”! I don’t want to hear that and for that it is necessary to work hard. I always with boys therefore it disturb to find me often alone as girl. Boys were always respectful of my work
OBM: Would you play concerts in Germany in the next time?
We would like to play in Germany and I hope that with this album we are going to be able to discover your country.
OBM: Is there a special place, where you like to play a show?
May be a big foreign festival but touring somewhere else than in France would make us also happy.
OBM: Before you start a tour, how you prepare your band?
We work in a show hall during some days to settle the sound, the lights, our set list and than we rehearse five times a weeks to perfect our songs until we go on tour.
OBM: What kind of music do you hear privately?
Tool, NIN, Motorhead, Meshuggah!
OBM: What are your goals for this year?
I hope that our new album will be liked as much as we like it because we have put a lot in there, I also hope to tour in your country as well as in Europe.
OBM: Anything else on your heart that you would like to get to the readers?
I hope you will find our records in Germany! You can also visit our websites to listen to it or order it there. Thank you, see you on tour!
