By Valeria Campagnale
Hello , thank you for your time guys!!!
Slaves of Time is a splendid album where many influences can be heard! Which bands are the ones that inspired you most during the creation progress?
and thank you for having us this is Niki B answering to the questions. The Album has many influences but as you have heard the two that stand out the most are Bullet for my valentine and
How difficult it is nowadays to find the right musicians in order to form a professional band with the qualifications in order to have a successful progress in the music industry. What's your story?
I moved from Greece at the age of 17 to become a professional guitarist and to create my own band.When I started the band I started on my own and when I decided to find a line up it was very very hard.Many musicians are available but who is professional enough to excel in a fast growing band and make the sacrifices that are needed…well lets say not many exist.It took me a long time but when I found the right musicians to bring the record to life LIVE then we started playing many shows in the UK and in one year we achieved to perform over 30 shows in the UK and of course our major show supporting Bullet for my valentine in BUCHAREST ROMANIA.Till today we have released 2 videoclips, 2 lyric videos, 1 full length album, one video clip is on its way and a second album will be released in 2020.
What's your strongest memory as a band till now?
strongest memory was when we stepped foot on stage supporting Bullet for my valentine. This was a true dream come true for all of us and we are looking forward to similar opportunities to
What is the hardest challenge of being a band in your particular genre ?
Metal is a hard genre to exist in but only in the beginning. All metalheads are like a family and they support their own. It is hard as a band to make a breakthrough as many bands exist and you have to create something unique that people will remember. This is what I am trying to do with Enterfire. The music to be recognizable.
What do you feel is the biggest problem in the music industry right now and how could it be fixed?
Many problems exist and one of the problems in the UK is that venues expect bands to
perform for free and pay for transport, accommodation and food on the top. Band have to support themselves and invest into the band and work very hard in day jobs to be able to afford to travel
to all the places to perform their music live. This is one of the reasons many bands fade away.
What feelings do you look to convey through your music?
We enjoy looking at the crowd going crazy at our shows and finding a meaning in our music. We want each individual to create his/her own story from our lyrics and this is why most four songs have double meanings.
In what ways has the band grown or matured over time?
Musically the bands identity has become more stable. As I composer, the first album I was making each song was a little different in style but in the second album, I have found the style that I want to approach and it is coming through very well in the demos. I am looking forward to see the reviews when it is released in 2020.
What do you feel is the most meaningful song or set of lyrics from " Slaves of Time " and why?
The song Slave of time as it talks about how time flies past and we cannot do anything to stop it. It tries to make the listener
understand that life is about living and to make it count. Life is short and we must live full with no regrets.
Is there a next album on the making or something new in terms of videoclip/lyric video coming up?
Yes the second album is half way there and a new video clip will be released in March
for the track Weapon of broken dreams off the album Slave fo time.
What are your plans for 2020 that is right around the corner?
Many things are in the making. A new album, a lineup change and a tour. Everything will be announced soon and we will be hitting the on from the 2nd of January where we
will be competing in Metal to the masses London for a chance to perform at Bloodstock Festival so come down and support us. After that many shows will be announced so stay
Would you like to share a message with your fans?
We want to thank all our supporters because without them a band is nothing. Keep your eye open because the storm of Enterfire is coming. Stay tuned and always METAL.
Niki B of ENTERFIRE.
