MACBETH

MACBETH

Founded in 1995 by the drummer Fabrizio Cislaghi, MACBETH debuts with "Romantic Tragedy's Crescendo" in 1998 The feedback on their first album, was extremely positive and they got some very good reviews reviews everywhere.Fabrizio gives an interview for subexistance.

You formed back in 1995.What change in your music and your style in these 15 years?
I must say I grown up as musician with MACBETH, I followed the entire evolution path of the band and of our sound. We debut as gothic metal band when just few bands of that kind were on the scene and we evolved to get an hybrid sound full of influences. Today the metal scene is overcrowded but I guess we still have an original sound.
Which is the current line up of the band and how each one of you take part in the music composition,lyrics etc...
The current line up: Morena (vocals), Andreas (vocals), Max (guitars), Fabrizio (drums), Sem. (bass). To record stuff we work also with the keyboards player of the first album, but he’s not in our line up as member.We use to compose all together while rehearsing, this is the best way to have always different point of views and fresh ideas. In the past we worked in a group of two or three to compose and with the rest of the band just to arrange songs but it was not so good to get brilliant stuff.
You like to experiment with every lp you release?Every album you made sounds a little bit different than your previous is that something you plan?
Yes, we like very much to experiment new ideas and sounds though our brand is always the same.Is like a challenge to renew and improve yourself while composing. Anyhow is not something we use to plan…is something you can feel while composing new stuff.
 You have a lot of live experience.You prefer small clubs or big festivals?
We all like to play on stage, in front of people and fans so is the same if you play on clubs or festivals.I love the moment after the show when you talk to people coming to see you and too hear your music. Is amazing and is the same if is a crowd or few.
You are working on your new album can you give me more details about that?
It will be the natural evolution of the sound you can hear on “Superangelic Hate Bringers”.Maybe the new album will sound more aggressive as new songs are a little bit different.  We are working on ten brand new songs and I feel it's some of the best stuff we have ever written.
What makes a band successfull?
I guess there are two way to be one of that bands. Bands using their money to be on the top. Bands with talent that slowly try to reach the top...
Are you satisfied with the press all this years towards your music?
Yes, quite satisfied. Last reviews talk about our sound and I like that someone can recognize it without using other band to compare our songs. I guess is really frustrating when someone involved in music journalism, supposed to be a person who knows music, reviews albums using only comparisons between bands.
What things inspire you?
Everything: music, movies, books, places, feelings… 
I guess a work of art is a mirror that reflects the artists and his soul. If you compose music you try always to transpose your feelings and energy. 
How about future plans after the new release?A big tour maybe?
We must enter the studio as soon as we complete pre-production works. Then we’ll play live everywhere people want to see us on stage. 
A message to all the people that support you all this years?
Thank you very much. We are nothing without you.

Thank you very much Fabrizio for the interview all the best to your band.
Thank you Kostas and Subexistance!
