Interview with SHOW YOUR FACE
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
i think the first spark was when we first saw a guitar hanging in a music store. After that, the rest is history. The truth is that beside music we all still have our normal day job.
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
In general, what wakes our minds is traveling around the world. Music often gives us the opportunity to do so and meet new people. So, getting in touch with new cultures enhances heavily our creativity.
How long has your band been around? Also, please tell me about the dynamic of the band of what brought you all together.
The band is around from 2007. The thing that brought us together is a strong friendship, a passion for metal music and booze.
Where are you based and how did that influence your music?
Even If you look for it, almost likely you won’t find it it’s a small town in central Greece, named Karditsa. Coming from such a place, made us worked harder foe out music to be heard.
How did you come up with the name of your band and what does it mean to you?
Show Your face, felted perfectly as we wanted to expose people who use a fake image to hide their inner selves.
Tell me about your most memorable shows.
Its quite difficult to choose between them, as each one of them is unique for us, but If we had to choose, sharing the stage with Jinjer,Rotting Christ,Septic fIesh,Deez Nuts,Sodom and Stampin ground was a lifetime experience.
What is your favorite venue to play at, and do you have any places you want to play that you have not already?
As for Greece, An club in Athens and Eightball in Thessaloniki. Although, we would live to perform abroad in as many venues as possible.
If you could play any show with any lineup, who would be on the ticket?
This is pretty easy, it must be Gojira, Architects,White Chapel and After the Burial.
What is some advice that you would give to someone who is just getting into playing in a band and some advice that you would give to your younger self?
Guys, please stop playing music to get chicks ( or don’t ),If our younger selves were right in front of us, we would advise them to move to a country witch gives more opportunities for extreme music players.
Of your songs which one means the most to you and why?
The song”Proud for Nothing” from our third album. It was a turning point for our bands musical journey.
Which songs are your favorite to play and which get requested the most?
The songs which are requested the most are Fatality, Born Dead Die Alive, Stay Away, Allies in mud and Madness. Those are also our favorites because people embraced them.
What is the creative process for the band, and what inspires you to write your music?
The creative process is really simple. It starts with a small idea, maybe a riff or a drum part. After our group gathers at the music studio and proceeds to evolve that idea till it becomes a song.

Through our music we express our inner thoughts about the harsh reality of the world we are living. We try to break the chains of denial and to create our resistance.
