by xjtx Seems usual to me to add some new Swedish band to DROIDxRAGE contents. WAR NERVE has a largely different sound than most Swedish recent bands I’ve already dealt with – you’ll discover their approach is actually oppened to more “extreme” musical means of expression than current Swedish Youth Crew. I’d like to thank guitar player Gabe for answering to my questions. Here’s another WAR NERVE interview http://www.nerepanoll.se/nyheter/intervju-war-nerve/ – hope you understand Swedish!
1/ That name “WAR NERVE” is, in my opinion, a satisfying starting point when a bunch of friends want to create a band whom influences get from hardcore to metal: what’s behind that concept, that idea…?
Well, WAR NERVE wasn’t supposed to be our name, I was thinking it was gonna be BAD FAITH as a sort of nod to BAD SEED, but everyone thought it sounded like a BAD RELIGION ripoff! Not sure why that’s a bad thing, hahaha. But yeah, WAR NERVE is a PANTERA song and I think it fits because it literally begins “fuck the world for all it’s worth, every inch of Planet Earth, fuck me too, don’t leave me out” because well, I’m almost 30 and I still just get mad at the world on a daily basis, haha.
(and if you guys still wanna name your band BAD FAITH, I can submit that idea…)
2/ How and when did you guys start to talk about forming a band? Can you introduce each member and tell us if he/she plays or used to play in other bands?
