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 Fredi Volvo of Gloria Volt.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
VOLVO: Gloria Volt has been around for eleven years now. We’ve all played in other bands before, from punk rock, stoner punk to power pop. When these bands were disbanded, we founded Gloria Volt. We all agreed that hard rock is the music we want to make. Our bass player always says hard rock is a way of life! And I think he’s right.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
VOLVO: I think you don’t have to be a clairvoyant to notice that AC/DC certainly had its influence. The Cult or Bonafide can certainly be heard. Also The Hellacopters have a certain influence, because we also sound a bit snot rock moderate.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
VOLVO: Our new EP has just been released, and I think there’s a good pinch of hard rock around the ears. The opener alone is worth listening to, Gloria Volt as you know it and hopefully love it. 😊
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
VOLVO: Our shows are always very energetic, the eye definitely has something of it. Hard rock is celebrated, as you know it, but also with a wink.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
VOLVO: I think we will do our thing in 5 years as we have done so far. That means releasing something new every now and then and rocking the stage every now and then. We are no longer twenty, have families and jobs that we have to pursue. But when you carry hard rock in your heart, there’s always time for shows, new recordings and beer. Especially beer. 😊
