Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Bad Bible.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
BAD BIBLE: Actually, the story of Bad Bible has begun in 2018. It all starts when Lena found Igor’s instrumental tracks interesting, and decided to try something to sing over them. Despite their different tastes, together they’ve created what they called “Shades”. About 3 months they recorded DIY EP “Silence Is Violent” and released it for free on Soundcloud. After that “Shades” broke up due to lack of time. But after 6 months they realized that they can’t just quit like this and reunited with a new name which reflects their worldview, which was in every word and every single note they’ve wrote – BAD BIBLE. This name means a lot to them and it also has different meanings for everyone who hears it. Bad Bible can be anything you want it to be. It depends on everyone’s perception.
2020 and 2021 were full of a new experience: Aleksey (bass) and Kirill (drummer) joined Bad Bible; band had their first live shows ever. Soon, they decided to play without drummer. And now, in 2022, they’re waiting for a new release, getting ready for new live shows and staying open for brand new horizons.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
BAD BIBLE: The band was influenced by alternative rock and the nu-metal scene of 90-10 years such as Static-X, Rammstein, Korn, Slipknot, Godsmack, Celldweller, Linkin Park, Evanescence, etc.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
BAD BIBLE: We’re glad to introduce our fresh release “A Place Beyond Time”, it’s coming 22.02.2022. It’s a new level, a new sound for us. For comparing you can listen to our latest release “Greed”. Definitely, you’ll hear the difference. It’s important for us to make steps forward.
Few words about “A Place Beyond Time”: it’s a hymn of loneliness. From us, who stopped living in a fear of being alone even for a short time, to people, who are still afraid of this. With this song we wanna say to everybody, that loneliness can be pure pleasure. It’s time, that belongs just to you and to no one else. It’s your own space. So, don’t be afraid of it. Enjoy your self-time!
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
BAD BIBLE: Our music is created by emotions, our feelings. So when you hear it live, it’s more powerful, you feel everything that we’ve put in it. We’re in love with music, so every live show gives emotions and energy exchange. We do what we love, love what we do and what we create. So everybody can feel it, when we’re on a stage.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
BAD BIBLE: You never know, you never know… We’d like to take part in worldwide festivals. It’s a huge experience. To meet many different bands, also the bands who still give us inspiration. The main thing is to enjoy what you do. So, we just follow our hearts.
