Q&A with Kadestorm

Metal band Kadestorm filled out a quick Q&A for us!

WHere have you been staying in 2020?

Matt and Conor actually live together so we were staying in our house getting everything ready behind the scenes for the release of our new EP ‘Heart, Mind & Hell’ which we released this year in April.

WHAT have you been doing during quarantine?

We were just getting everything ready for the release and enjoying a bit of time to relax as well, it’s been non stop since we started the band so as much as we missed everything during the lockdown it was also nice to have a break from the business side of being in a band.

have you found or refound any hobbies?

Matt: I picked up reading a bit more again, playing games on the playstation which I don’t very often and I actually picked up drawing again which has been great but trying to find the time now that everything is going back to normal is a bit more difficult.

Conor: I read a lot more but that’s not necessarily a hobby i’ve found or re-found as I just had more time so did more of it! I have also been on quite a few long walks!

what have you been listening to lately?

Matt: I’ve recently discovered Hot Milk and Vexed, both who are fantastic and Conor told me about Holding Absence a while ago and I finally got around to listening to them and they’re phenomenal.

Conor: Dance Gavin Dance, The Amity Affliction, The Maine and recently I’ve been on a nostalgia binge so all the late 2000’s emo and post-hardcore has found it’s way back into my ears!

has your songwriting process changed this year?

It’s been difficult because normally we put songs together as a band from ideas we have but obviously we haven’t managed to do much of that yet so once we get back to writing regularly together again soon we’ll probably all have a load of riffs, ideas or lyrics to have a look at.

is there any message you’d like to convey to fans?

Just that we hope everyone is staying safe and enjoys themselves no matter what you’re doing, we’re a band who wants everyone to have a good time at our shows whether you want to go into there pit or stand at the back with a beer and we hope everyone checks out our new EP, we’re extremely proud of it and are excited to finally share it with the world.

what is something positive that happened to you in 2021?

‘HEART, MIND & HELL’!!!!! I know we’ve already said it a lot but so much time, effort and money went into this body of work and having to sit on it during the pandemic sucked so now it’s out everyone go check it out!
