Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Pressure.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
PRESSURE: Well, we are Pressure. A band who is dedicated to talk about and help people with different kind of Pressures in their life. We all have different kinds of Pressures around us and we want those who listens to us to be able to use our music and our lyrics as tools to help them overcome the pressures of their life. Our music is direct, hard and we play each and every note as it is the last note we will ever play. There is meaning to all of the songs, which are based on true experiences.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
PRESSURE: I would say that it’s the stories that you see around you every day that are our biggest influences. I mean there are so many life stories to be told but no one to stop and listen to them. As you speak to a person don’t hesitate to really listen to them. You will learn and be told amazing, hard and true stories from real life. This we bring with us to our song writing process. That’s true inspiration and influence.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
PRESSURE: Our latest release is our Christmas song “Julstress” Its in Swedish but if you watch the Official video you will get English subtitles. Its all about the fact that there are many people who are celebrating Christmas alone. And society feels sorry for them, even if some of them actually choose to celebrate Christmas alone and to take is easy. Why? Because you have to have a big party, a lot of gifts and sooo much food. But sometimes its nice to just relax, In my book, that’s what Christmas is all about. (And there is a little nudity in the video as well…heheh…check it out).
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
PRESSURE: Live shows are something really extra for us. We try to connect to the audience. We want you to get more than just a live show, we want to give you something to talk about for ages. You know that kind of show that you tell people about that “I was THERE”. We give it all so when you go to our shows you will get energy, truth, metal, rocking out and just an awesome time!
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
PRESSURE: I don’t know, but I hope we get as far as possible. The most important thing for us is to get people to listen and to react. I really hope that we are on tour with new and great material and that we are getting to meet new and fantastic people.
