Band: Reflection Dies
Genre: Death Metal / Trash
Q: What does the band name "Reflection Dies" mean exactly, and why did you choose that name for your band?
It just came up as an idea when we were brainstorming together. Then we figured that there is a slightly deeper meaning there. Our listeners can try to solve that mystery themselves, and according to Lasse (our Drummer) it was the first name that included word Death, Dies, Dying etc!
Q: You haven't released a demo/EP/album since 2011. Why is that, and when can we expect new material?
Our 2-song Single/Demo/Promo named Without was released in summer 2012, it included two songs: Without & Stand Your Ground (you can purchase it from iTunes if you want to support us, OR you can get it free from our bandcamp). And at the moment we´re practicing & composing new material for our first album, planned to be released later this year, there will be couple of surprises on the album so keep an eye out for it!!
Q: What is the local metal scene like in Helsinki?
Jouni: There are many thrash and death metal bands but not so many metalcore and hardcore bands. We try to stand out from the mass.
Lasse: Most of young / newborn bands are only metal"cleanfuckingvocal"core. Older metal bands play more traditional metal but also some young bands like Nuclear Omnicide and Halo of Dreams represent great old school thrash!
Q: What bands play an influence on your music the most?
Q: If you could play with any band live, which band would that be and why?
Jouni: Also bands like Slayer and Hatebreed would be nice to play with. They're bands that I personally respect very much.
Q: What are your plans for the rest of 2013?
Q: Any shout outs to give?
Reflection Dies, out!
