Enemy Designed Interview
Direct from Halifax, Nova Scotia comes the premier death metal power act, ENEMY DESIGNED. Their energy is unstoppable. Their devotion to their music is strong, proud, and loud. This band is on the fast track and they took some time to answer some questions.
1.Who came up with the name?
Matt did. It's from a lyric in a Fear Factory song.
Matt starts by coming up with riffs, to which the bass and drums are added during jams. Mel writes all lyrics.
2.Who writes most of the music and/or lyrics?
It's a good scene with many great bands. Great group of fans too - they come out to shows often and support the local bands.
3.How is the metal scene in Halifax?
We would LOVE to, it's just talking to the right people and making the right connections to have it happen - that's the difficult part. Someday!
My main vocal inspirations are Randy Blythe, Johan Hegg and Phil Bozeman with others being Phil Anselmo and Jon Davis. They all have a large influence on my lyric writing.
