|1. How did the band get started? How did you meet
and how long have you been together?
The band was originally formed in early 1998. I, the bass player and
guitarist/singer Alex met at a jam with a friend. Our styles seemed
to have a very similar direction and since we both were taking music
seriously we set out to look for a talented drummer and lead guitarist
to form the band we have today.
2. How would you describe
Roland Juhasz: The best way to describe
Enter VI is progressive, power thrash we aim to retain all the power
without the sacrifice of melody and variety.
3. What are
your biggest influences?
Roland Juhasz: We have
a lot of influences but most prominent are probably Meshuggah, Strapping
Young Lad, Kreator and throw in a bit of Sepultura and Fear Factory.
As the bass player, my influences are Morbid Angel, Testament and
melody wise Moonspell is awesome.
4. What influence do
you think your bands has in music and metal today?
Juhasz: We want people to get a rush of adrenalin everytime they
hear our record and we are trying to introduce more complexity in
our brand of thrash and power.
5. What made you want to
be in the band? And if you werent in the band what would you
be doing now?
Roland Juhasz: I've been playing
music since year 8 in school. If I didn't think that I would be in
a killer band one day I wouldn't have pursued it for so many years.
6. Are any band members in side projects? If so what are they,
and explain a little about them.
None that I am aware of.
7. How would you feel if a band
took their sound from yours and became very well known?
Roland Juhasz: Then we would always be better because no other
band can replicate another if that's not their true style. Try copy
Meshuggah, for example, it won't work because they are simply the
best at their style.
8. What current bands do you like
Roland Juhasz: Strapping Young Lad,
Meshuggah, Fear Factory, Entombed, Testament, Immortal and Slayer.
We respect and like countless others but would be too long a list.
9. How many demos/albums do you have? Tell me about them!!
Roland Juhasz: We initally released a 3 track
demo which was well received and now our debut album just came out,
10. What demo/album do you like the best?
Roland Juhasz: Dreams!!
11. What is the meaning
behind the songs?
Roland Juhasz: Every band member
has their chance to add his own ideas to the lyrics. We are open minded
and will choose the meaning that best reflects the personality and
direction of the band at the moment.
12. What are the
bands favorite songs?
Roland Juhasz: Hexed, Passed
Realised and Onslaught Server. Within these 3 songs the listener will
hear power rhythms, unusual melodies and over all the really rock.
13. What does the future hold for the band?
Roland Juhasz: The way I see it is we can only get better.
We are striving to establish a new standard with every song we write
in both composition and overall progressive, metal feel.
14. If you could play with any band who would it be and why?
Roland Juhasz: I think Testament or Pantera. Their styles
would go well with us and they both are innovators of metal music.
15. Who writes the majority of the music?
Juhasz: The majority of the music is written by our singer/guitarist
Alex Vexler. Onslaught Server was co-written by me and can be heard
distinctively as the bass is very promiment in that song. Most of
our lyrics are written by drummer Andriha Skocic. All leads naturally
by the lead man himself, Daniel Shore.
16. Who has been
the favorite band youve played with and why?
Juhasz: Most probably Cryogenic. They supported Slayer here on
their last tour and they definately know how to get a rowdy crowd
17. Where did you get the band name from?
Roland Juhasz: It was our drummer's idea. Out of several
names that popped up in his head we chose this one.
Describe what the band is like live?
We are very straight forward. We play with all our energy and then
we get even more hyper when we see the corws go wild. We have a tight
sound and we don't spend lots of time telling stories to the crowd.
People want to see some seriously powerful and technical metal and
that's what they get.
19. If you are gonna do any kind
of video what would be in it?
Roland Juhasz: Haven't
had the chance to plan that out yet, we have ideas but too early to
20. Are there any touring plans made; if
so tell me about them?
Roland Juhasz: Too early
21. Where do you think the band will be 20
years from now?
Roland Juhasz: Depends where
technology and equipment takes us. Hopefully at the forefront of the
aggressive and uncompromising wave of bands.
