Dying Fetus resign to Relapse Records; European tour dates announced

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 13th June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Death metal powerhouse Dying Fetus have announced their re-signing to Relapse Records. Following the release of their latest, critically acclaimed album Reign Supreme in last year on Relapse Records, Dying Fetus have re-signed to the label and commented:

We have an addiction and have relapsed with Relapse Records. Relapse Records will remain your one stop shop for all things Dying Fetus . Re-signing with Relapse Records seemed like the right thing to do for the band as both Dying Fetus and Relapse Records have grown over the years. So our fans can look forward to more brutality from both parties.

The band will return to tour Europe this summer, starting on July 24th and will be performing at Bloodstock Festival at Catton Hall, Derby on 11th August before heading to London to play an intimate show at The Barfly in London the following day.

Interview with Nya

Posted in Interview with tags , , , , , on 21st November 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Having blasted onto the British rock and metal scenes at the beginning of 2012, Nya have become a rising star in the UK, gaining a slot at Download 2011 and confirmed for Metal Days Festival in Slovenia for 2013. With their new EP, Driving The Nails In, released, Nya are set to reach new heights. Nico has a chance to chat with the band about their future plans and the new EP.

Nico: Are there any concepts or lyrical themes that revolve around the new EP, Driving The Nails In?

Nya: The whole concept for the EP artwork and visual theme came from the song ‘Driving The Nails In’ so the lyrics here inspired the imagery. We didn’t take a concept based approach lyrically on this EP and each song has it’s own meaning which I’m sure people can relate to when listening.

Nico: You’ve been confirmed to play Metal Days in Slovenia in 2013. How are you feeling about that?

Nya: We’re definitely excited about that one, we should have a run of European dates building up to this one so it’s going to be good fun.

Nico: Aside from the aforementioned Metal Days festival, what are the band’s plans for 2013?

Nya: To play in front of as many new people as we possibly can, get new material flowing in our veins and take no prisoners along the way.

Nico: Is there a meaning behind the band’s name, Nya?

Nya: We keep getting told new meanings by fans for the word Nya such as how it means ‘new’ in Swedish as well as our personal favourite; ‘meow’ in Japanese. The real reason behind the name is we just thought it was a cool word and liked the sound of it.

Nico: How does a typical song writing session go for the band?

Nya: There isn’t too much of a ‘typical’ song writing session for us as no 2 songs ever come together in the same way. Usually ideas are developed individually or between 2/3 people before they reach full rehearsal stage and by that point we have a good idea of where the song needs to go. It’s then a case of demoing it so we can work on the structure, textures, harmonies and layers.

Nico: If could replace the soundtrack to any film with your own music, which one would it be and why?

Nya: Every fight scene from Expendables 2 with some of the new tracks we will be playing live next year – because fire and explosions make everything better, just look at Rammstein! And whilst we’re at it we have to finish up some faster songs that would go well in any of the ridiculous stunt scenes Fast and Furious 6 is bound to have – just for the hell of it.

Nico: Where do you see the band in five years?

Nya: Bigger, better and tearing it up on tour – Stronger than ever and living life to the fullest!

Nico: Given the chance, which band would you like to tour with?

Nya: ar too many to list but it would be awesome to see the massive productions of the likes of Muse or Slipknot every night – Music is an art form and we are all into the visual side of things and putting on a show for the fans so this would be incredibly inspiring to witness day after day.

Nico: How did Nya form?

Nya: Like most bands Nya has been through various lineup changes as we find members that aren’t only dedicated to taking this as far as possible, but also who can eat, sleep, work, breathe and live together without wanting to rip each other apart (too much!). Musically and artistically we are all on the same page these days, which is only making us stronger as a unit with bigger, better songs and ideas in the pipeline. We all have big plans for the future of Nya.

Nya: It’s worth saying we are currently seeking a permanent drummer to join us and anyone interested in auditioning can contact us at nyaofficial@gmail.com

Nico: What’s the metal scene like in your local area?

Nya: We keep relocating so I’m not 100% on where our local area is right now but London and the South West has an abundance of talented bands in the metal and rock scenes!

Nico: What are the band’s biggest influences?

Nya: If it grooves, makes us feel something we can relate to and sticks in our heads we’re in!

Nico: When it comes to writing new songs, where do you find your inspiration?

Nya: It could be a new record, day to day events, a new sound, tone or groove – basically anything happening around us in life is inspiring us, sometimes it’s a positive thing and at other times it can be quite dark or negative. It’s sometimes just that desire to create that sound we have in our heads with something that is new and a part of us that leads us to new ideas.

Nico: Do you have any plans for a UK tour? If so, any indications to as where you’ll be playing?

Nya: Keep an eye out for info on UK Dates for late February and early March! We are planning on hitting quite a few places but are just waiting on the details now.

Nico: Are there any bands, aside from yourselves, you’d like to recommend to our readers?

Dead Letter Circus – Seriously worth checking these guys out, they sound huge!

Nico: What was the last album you bought?

Nya: That would be the new Deftones album Koi No Yokan – Really getting into this one so far with all its epic guitar and vocal layers backed up by some chunky riffs!

Nico: Do you have anything you’d like to say to our readers?

Nya: Thanks as ever for continuing to support what we do and we hope to see you at a show in 2013!
