Carmilla answers the grinder questions

1.Introduce yourself and your band and tell us why we should listen to you.
The band is different. We are in age of 23 to 55. We are a band just because we like the same music. Our music is a bit different from normal death metal. It is a mix with classic music, trash and rytmic metal. Clean and Growl. It has a blues soul with death rythmic.

2.What do you classify your sound as, Who do you tell people you sound like?
Swedish melodic death metal. We sound like Carmilla. A mix of Lamb of God and Arch Enemy

3.With digital music in today's world would you vote to keep or eliminate physical media?
Keep it. There is a lot of people that collect music

4.What is the reason you decided to be a musician and has that reason paid off?
We all love music since we were young. When people listen and like our music its pay off

5.How do you feel about females in metal getting special attention? Do you feel it is fair?
I have always loved it and when we start the band our target was a female singer.
We cant say that is a different attention?

6.In the world climate with hatred being at an all time high and metal being an “ angry” music
Do you think your music contributes to anger and hatred? We would say that religion are more angry and create a lot more problem than music do. Metal is according to festivals a calm group of people.

7.Are you opposed to religious beliefs or politics being used in music?
We never discuss politics and we talk of religion as a reason to war and oppression. But we talk of religion in one world never discuss any individual religion  

8.We have dive into some pretty deep issues here do you think your music sends a message and if so what is it? We will say feelgood we don’t have any mission with our lyrics

9.The market has changed and many bands believe that record labels are a thing of the past, with many labels now charging bands to “sign” how do you think a band can make it in todays scene? We still got a faith in labels. But since we so far finance everything our self we are in no urgent need to sign if they don’t believe in us 100%. Then we are sure that a label can do a lot for a band. Our biggest need today is a booking agent.

10.Why with the thousands of options including netflix , sporting events everything on demand
Why do you think people should take the time to listen to what you have to say in your music? We see that our music gives a lot to many. We have no possibility to be on the huge markets so far but still we have 10 000 streams on Spotify and 60 000 views on youtube without any help and in a short period of time.

11.How do you feel about pay to play? Do you think it is fair for a band to have to pay money to play? We will play free for a good reason like a charity but except that we play only if we get payed.

12.It is fact that you are the talent and the entertainment explain what you think is the most important key to success? I will believe it is great music and being determined it is never about luck even if you can have a break with “right person” hear you. It still great music and hard work first.

13.In country music and even in some cases rock music is written and performed by different people would your band perform a song written by someone else? We got lyrics that is written by someone else but music and melody? I need to hear that before I can tell

We got no opinion about it

Working with environment issues, Movies or entertainment

19.If you could get on stage with anyone dead or alive who would it be?

20.This is your shot to let loose, Throw down your biggest complaint about the music biz
The fact that so many labels, organizers, Writers of reviews, booking agent and so on don’t even answer a mail. I mean no thanks take you less than a minute. It is rude no matters how many mails you get. // Håkan guitar
