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 The Last Element.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
THE LAST ELEMENT: WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER, WE ARE STRONGER.
The Last Element originates when we face the passing of one dearly loved, the hardship of a broken home or the breaking of hearts – it is the first spark, the first sense of emotion, a first feeling that evolves into a creative mind.
Bringing these elements together they find a way to grow – Broken hearts fit like pieces of puzzles and these pieces mend into one big heart.
We believe there are many like us, waiting to join our hearts.
Together we are stronger, together we are The Last Element.
The Last Element has reached +1.6 Million streams, fully DIY and this only proves they are getting the recognition and support from their listeners.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
THE LAST ELEMENT: Life! Yeah I know.. what can we say, the biggest influence for what we write is the daily that happens to us, or the things that really mattered in our lives. The lyrics I write are all very personal, furthermore the instrumental tracks that are written are also heavily influenced by certain moods and emotions. Of course we have a lot of musicians that influence us. Most of us started listening to rock and metal from an early age! But it’s not only metal or rock, we don’t really believe in working in only one style, there aren’t clear boundaries, we love all kinds of music and it all influences us. But if he have to give some shout outs, we love Bring Me The Horizon, Linkin Park, I Prevail and many other bands in our genre.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
THE LAST ELEMENT: Our latest release is called “The Devil” … you should check it out cause it’s epic! Na you decide that for yourself! The response so far has been very good, it’s been out for less than 2 months but already gained over 140K plays on Spotify alone. We we’re very lucky to be picked up by two big Spotify editorial lists! So that helped out a lot 😊
Furthermore, radio stations all over the world have picked up the song, so we are kinda blown away by the positive feedback! Honestly we kinda forgot if the song was actually good, we have a lot of songs we are working on, that we feel have even more potential, so we we’re kinda stupefied by the amazing support so far!
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
THE LAST ELEMENT: A hell of a rock show filled to the brim with emotion! We give it our all, mostly after a show I’m drained, I always try to really feel what the songs were about and why I wrote them. That can be pretty exhausting, but totally worth it, cause you’ll know each word is meant. Furthermore we got some really heavy and some really catchy tunes, so the show will be a wild ride for sure!.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
THE LAST ELEMENT: We got big plans!! This year we really aim to reach out to more and more people, we want to increase our following on all platforms and hopefully people will see we got a lot up our sleeves. We really want to do big shows with some of our favorite bands and make even better songs. We are working hard on the mix, our visual identity and writing new bangers! So we can only say… stay tuned, it’s gonna be worth it! Our next single will give you a perfect preview of what is to come! So stay tuned for “Cut It Off”!
