10 Questions we ask every band...
Zodiac N Black
1) What are the names of your members?
BASS - Hank ; DRUMS - Luca ; GUITARS - Jim ; VOCALS - Jad
2) When did you all get together?
3) How did you all meet?
Myself (Jad) and Jim have been playing together and writing together since 2008 and have been friends for a lot longer. It took us 2 years to find the right rhythm section. And we did.
4) How would you describe your music?
We've tried describing it in terms of genres, but we get described as all sorts by other people. The simplest way to describe our music is Hard Rock, I think that covers a lot of the little subsections. But loud music probably describes it better.
5) Who are your major influences?
I'd say the bands that all 4 of us agree with fully would be Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, but there are many many many more and the list would go on forever. We are influenced by a lot of music that we don't like as well as the music we like.
6) Complete the sentence: One day as a band we hope to…
Look back and think that we have created a great bunch of albums, that we put on incredible live shows and were always honest in our music.
7) Why should people listen to your music?
Because they will hopefully enjoy it and understand the fact that we write all sorts of stuff, so if you don't like a certain song, it doesn't mean you won't like one of the others. We all enjoy different sorts of songs.
8) What are your plans for the upcoming year?
We start a mini tour with Attica Rage on 24th May.
24th May - The Hydrant - Brighton
25th May - The Roadhouse - Manchester
26th May - Gasworks - Bradford
31st May - Hard Rock Hell - Ibiza
2nd June - The Underworld - London
9)What albums/EP’s have you released so far and where can people get hold of them?
We released our debut album "The Aftermyth" on STM Records at the end of January. If you go to our website www.zodiacnblack.com you can get all the information of the different places to get our album.
10)Finally – say something profound that will make everyone think:
None of us are smart enough for something like that so I'll leave you with the great Bill Hicks:
"All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves."
