I-DEF-I

We just want to make the heaviest most powerful and beautiful music we can.
ENGuest: Florian

NC: Hello, give us some information about the band I-Def-I?

I-DEF-I (Tom): We formed in Manchester in the UK a few of years back, since then we've been touring hard all over the UK, put out our debut mini-album 'Bloodlust Casualty' and we've just got back from playing the Download Festival at Donington!

NC: Tell us about your music, whats kind of music play I-Def-I?

I-DEF-I (Tom): To me our music is like a constant battle between darkness and beauty, we just want to make the heaviest most powerful and beautiful music we can.

NC: Whats the musical roots and wich bands are the most influences ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): We have a lot of different influences between us, but for me personally I grew up listening to metal and rock. Guns n' Roses completely changed my concept of music at a very young age, which then led me onto the classic metal bands like Metallica, Pantera, Sepultura...I just love heavy music, I get something from it I can't get anywhere else

NC: What means the Band name "I-Def-I"?

I-DEF-I (Tom): Literally what it says, we've fought against so many things to get to where we are, and a lot of the time it has felt like it's us against the world.

NC: The new Album "Bloodlust Casualty" is out now on Casket Records, tell us a litte bit about the new Records ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): We're currently about halfway through writing what will be our first full length album, and it sounds killer, it's gonna scare the hell out of everyone, i promise you that.

NC: How is the feedback about your album and the songs ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): It's been really good, we've had some awesome reviews, and 'Bloodlust Casualty' is the fastest selling release our label's ever had!

NC: Tell us a litte bit about the lyrics on the songs ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): Chris our singer writes all the lyrics, and they're are all deeply personal to him, but because we are so close as band we all relate to and understand what he's writing about.

NC: How comes the ideas and the creative for the Songs ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): Well I've spent most of my time this year locked away writing and working on songs, once I've got a song together musically I'll send it over to Chris and he'll get his vocal ideas together, once that's done we take it into the rehearsal room and see how it's sounding. Song writing is still a major release for me, it's catharic, and I put all of my agression and passion into it.

NC: Whats happen with a Tour ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): We're heading out on a full UK tour starting next week, and then once that's done we'll be heading straight into pre-production for our first full length album.

NC: Thank you for the interview, do you want to leave some words to our readers ?

I-DEF-I (Tom): Thank you, and if you want to have a listen check out some tunes from our mini-album 'Bloodlust Casualty' on www.myspace.com/idefi
