Interview with Walk With Titans
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
The Beatles got me in music, it was just soo damn good. If I hadn't found music, I wanted to become a mechanic.
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
I work, watch hockey, play video games or read. The reading part influences the lyrics sometimes but otherwise, it doesn't really influence them. When I'm at work I sometimes have some melodies which pop in my head, I try to sing them and record them on my cell and sometimes, it gives me an idea when I bring it back on guitar.
How long has your band been around?
Not long, we are basically a pandemic band even though we were formed a bit before.
Where are you based out of and how did that influence your music?
Montréal, Canada. It didn't really influence our music cause the other surrounding bands are playing much different styles. We stick to our thing cause we love it
How did you come up with the name of your band and what does it mean to you?
It's the idea of our former bass player Dave Zinay. I think we just think it sounded cool at first but we quickly jumped into that Greek Mythology thing. It's what it means, we walk with ancient tales, ancient myths, Herodote, and Apollonios de Rhodes. We Walk With Titans.
Tell me about your most memorable shows.
We are yet to play our first show!
What is your favorite venue to play at, and do you have any places you want to play that you have not already?
We would play anywhere!
If you could play any show with any lineup, who would be on the ticket?
Stratovarius, Edguy and Helloween
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?
Do it for yourself. Use music as therapy, don't overthink it.
If you could go back in time and give yourselves advice, what would it be?
Buy some bitcoins!
Of your songs which one means the most to you and why?
Eurydice means the most to me, it is so heartfelt when Jo sings it, it is a beautiful but sad myth too and it can be relatable to aspects and relationships, holding on to someone.
Which songs are your favorite to play and which get requested the most?
As of now, we only got one song out (Seven Against Thebes) and we are yet to play a show, hopefully, they all get requested !!
What is the creative process for the band, and what inspires you to write your music?
It starts off with a riff/idea or melody, then we write a song and build around it. Nick and I usually bring the musical skeletons and Jo rearranges everything.
What kinds of messages do you like to get across in your music?
We aren't that deep and since we are relating old myths, we aren't necessarily getting a message across, we try to get emotions across though, I'd say hope maybe.
Do you ever have disagreements in your band, and how do you get past them?
Jo and I always disagree about something musically speaking, it makes our songs better so it basically just makes us happier.
What are your plans for the future, and do you have anything that you want to spotlight that is coming up?
We will play Nerdstock fest in July and our album will be out on the 26th of May, stay tuned!
