Interview with Mind Enemies

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?

Hi, I created the “Mind Enemies” in 2009, after finishing the Percussion studies at the Conservatory of Foggia (Italy). My father is a guitarist and I have always cultivated this second instrument since I was a child. I decided to create this project because it was what was missing in my life, to create my music. From an early age I studied percussion, in particular the drums, but from 2008 on I started to study guitar and singing more seriously.

Why did you pick your band name? How did you form? Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?

The choice of the band name was very natural. I wanted to face my fears, realize my dreams, and I thought of a name that reminds me that fears must always be faced, because they are what block us ourselves from our personal fulfillment. The genre I do instead was an almost unaware choice. I started to create music without thinking about a specific genre, I just wanted to create my favorite music, and all of this was born.

What can you tell us about your latest record?

“Revenge” is an album born of a great desire for freedom, to live life in its fullness. For me it is a liberating album that contains so many strong emotions, that give grit. It is pure and is influenced by all my musical tastes. I’m trying to create my language, my way, and this album is the first important piece of this artistic journey.

What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?

I hope you like rock and metal music fans who have the same taste. If it will be appreciated I will be happy otherwise it’s all right, I’m still satisfied with my work.

Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?

Yes, for the moment I am preparing small tours in Europe and Asia. It is not easy but working day by day you always get results. I think that organizing all this is not easy, but over time anyone who believes in their work and undertakes so much will succeed in having what they want. The band must work on the quality of their concerts and improve more and more, then with a good promotion the rest comes by itself.

Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?

No, it’s a shame. The musicians work hours and hours to prepare concerts and deserve to be paid as much as they deserve like every other job. Unfortunately it is a very difficult situation for emerging music, but never give up.

What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

“Internet” is a great tool for sharing one’s music. I shared some of my songs for free, to let everyone know about my project. At the beginning it is always necessary to give the public the possibility to listen to your product.

Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?

My influences are many, from Metallica, Black Sabbath, Death, Megadeth, Pink Floyd, Tool, Dream Theater, Rush, Soundgarden and many others. But this does not mean that it is a copy of these bands, I just try to create my way of seeing music, my personal language. For me a great dream would be to live my music playing concerts all over the world and slowly I hope to make it happen, then if it comes success is OK, otherwise I do not care.

Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?

Yes, I have studied many years at the conservatory and academies, but I do not think it is fundamental. It depends on the path we want to follow. I am hungry for knowledge and I always try to learn as much as possible from every musical instrument, but it is my way of seeing things. A person could very well learn three chords and make music and be successful. I think that what counts most is the message and what we have to transmit to the world.

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?

In practice I never have free time. To get what I want I always have to work, but that’s okay. As long as there is a motivation behind it, I will always have the strength to do all of this. For me there is nothing more beautiful than creating my songs.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?

Some mistakes can always happen, we are human beings fortunately. If it happens anyway I always try to move on as if nothing had happened. Before every concert there is so much concentration and desire to do a great show. After so many years the tension disappears and you can be more comfortable on stage. It’s a good feeling.
