GALVANIC

New melodic metal rock band under the spotlight...

1. What are you currently up to? (E.g. touring/studio, etc.)

At the moment we are concentrating of completing the lineup for Galvanic whilst finishing Pre-production for our debut album.

2. Who was/is are the biggest influences on your career?

Difficult to choose from so many but a main influence would have to be ĎDevin Townsendí.

3. Brief history of your work to date and the style of music you play.

The past two years have focused on producing a demo CD whilst gigging and building a fan base. Our style is unique in that we blend lots of different metal styles into something new, hence the name Galvanic.

4. What has been the highlight(s) and lowpoint(s) of your career to date?

Since losing our original drummer James, finding a replacement has added to the constant struggle of an unsigned metal band. Highlight would be perfecting our style and knowing that we are producing a new and exciting form of music in an otherwise stale and predictable genre.

5. How easy is it to get gigs and promotion?

igs are easy; sending a demo or talking to the venue usually does the job. Promotion however is a different story. Without media backing it is extremely difficult for bands to even let people know about upcoming gigs, let alone get them down there to support you. This is something that affects all unsigned bands at some stage.

6. Debut album release? How do you approach songwriting?

Hopefully our album will be released before the end of the year. With regards to songwriting, itís a case of whoever bringing a song, riff or just an idea into the studio. We then work on it and change it if we feel we needs to. Thankfully we havenít had any major bust-ups so far.

7. Do you see the growing interest in power/doom/goth metal in UK?

To be honest, we have been so busy sorting out the world of Galvanic that we havenít really noticed any change. Hopefully though the interest will grow and keep growing, allowing the public to be exposed to a wider variety of music.

8. If you could create a fantasy band what would be the lineup and why?

Complete our lineup and iron out all the wrinkles and I would say Galvanic would be the fantasy band for all of us.

9. What CDís do you currently have available and where can they be purchased?

We have a very limited supply of our self-produced demo CD available at any of our gigs. These are running out however so be quick or you will have to wait until our debut album. MP3ís can be downloaded from the website

10. Message to your fans...

Spread the word; tell everyone about Galvanic and a very big thanks for your support so far.
