Q&A with Darkest Horizon

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF YOUR BANDMATES WHEN YOU MET?

Actually we were friends way before we joined the band, so our first meetings weren’t band related at all. But my first impression of Chris was that of a quiet but unbelievably creative person. With Daniel I was impressed with the sheer force with which he threw me straight across a wall of death (we met on a concert whilst moshing). And for Enis I was astonished what kind of voice emerged from this guy. Unbelievable. Love it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY PLAYING SHOWS? 

In general? Of course being on stage! But also travelling, seeing  different cities, meeting new people. I like this kind of a  travelling-circus-feeling around bands playing concerts and being  on tour. That is something I miss especially in these days.

WHAT ARTIST WOULD BE YOUR DREAM COLLABORATION?

Alive: Till Lindemann (I am a huge Rammstein-fan). Dead: Freddy  Mercury (and a very huge Queen-fan).

WHAT SONG ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF AND WHY?

Conquer and Command, our last single. This is because it has a  very personal to me: I wrote the lyrics to that song as a reaction  to my grandfathers death, so it is kind of my way of saying  goodbye. And I am very proud that these lyrics made it into one of  our songs and I love the result.

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO GAS STATION ORDER?

Well, I don’t own or drive a car so mostly it is beer, some snacks or maybe a coffee.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR NON-MUSICAL INFLUENCES?

For me it is poetry, theatre, film… Originally I started with acting before I joined the band. So my origins are more theatrical  than musical and this influences me up until today. Also poetry  and writing has had (and still has) a very strong influence on me. I love words and how you can built new worlds simply by arranging and rearranging them. Very fascinating!

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF? 

Don’t take yourself too seriously but be harder on the people you work with. If you’re too soft and hesitating you will spend time, money and energy on something just to see it getting wasted. Do whatever you want, but do it! Preferably yourself.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THE YEAR? 

We will release some more singles, have more photo shoots for new visuals and we are currently working on some video projects. Nothing fixed yet but we will see what will come out of it. And our next single will be released next week, on the 25th of June! So check out our instagram or Bandcamp and we will keep you updated!
