- Hi! This is Alex , Drummer of Davidian. Our new album "Our Fear Is Their Force" was released some days ago, so right now we´re still busy planning a video shoot, release some new t- shirts and looking for shows!
> 2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it
> differs from previous releases?
- "Our Fear Is Their Force" is sounding more "adult" than the previous releases, in terms of the songwriting and the whole production. Even the voice of our new shouter Tobi makes DAVIDIAN sounding stronger than ever.
> 3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores
> with the new release/
- The main topics are social-, economic and politic problems. We don't intend to act like saviors, we're also trapped in this circle, but we want people to realize what's going on. Those are not topics you talk about everyday and most people don't realize it until you show it in an extremer way. Who cares about third world problems, if you get your stuff (food, clothing, entertainment electronics...) cheaper than all others. People have to realize what's going on and maybe they can work on changing some of their opinions and actions.
> 4. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and
> how would you describe your stage performance?
- Our stage performance is very energetic, rough and pure. A real metal performance to bang your head off. We have played many shows, good and bad ones, but the show at the Summer Breeze Open Air last year and the show in Switzerland with Hatebreed are definately some highlights.
> 5. Do you have any touring plans for the new release?
- Not yet, at the moment we´re searching for good offers of a booking agency to be able go on tour as soon as we can!
> 6. On a worldwide level how has your music been recieved by fans of
> thrash and death metal?
- People like our stuff. With our new label Massacre Records and our new album we´re able to reach more people in other countries. Today the internet is also an important instrument to use for reaching people around the world, before all Facebook. More and more people, for example from Indonesia, Brazil, USA, Canada, Australia etc., get to know DAVIDIAN and listen to our songs.
> 7. Are there any other projects besides this band or is this a full time
> line up?
- This is a full-time line-up. Almost everybody in DAVIDIAN had offers from other bands or projects, for example Micha played in a Old-School Death Metal band (Immortal Rites) beside DAVIDIAN for some years, but the priority was always DAVIDIAN.
> 8. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
- We dont know exactly, we dont care too much in which direction our music goes, because we play the music we feel. Maybe there will be more blastbeats or breakdowns, more melodies or even a ballad?!
> 9. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music
> and also what are you listening to nowadays?
- Everybody in DAVIDIAN is a music lover and since ever we listen to many different kinds of rock/metal music. Mainly we listen to a lot of Metal-/Deathcore, Thrashmetal, Hardcore and even a lot of technical Death Metal as well. Even some Hardrock, alternative/prog/indie rock or some a cool pop or dubstep song too. If you´ll see a playlist with some our favourite songs you´ll think it could be an awesome list for a radio show :)!
> 10. Outside of music what are some of your interests/
- Tobi is very much into sports. He´s skateboarding, snowboarding, going to fitness clubs etc. Since theres not many time between our day job and our band, everybody is doing something: some sports, go out with friends, playing video games or spend time with our girlfriends :).
