Saint Vicious will be participating in the upcoming Back to the Roots 3 with several other bands. This is an pre-event interview with some questions about the concert and the band itself:

Etienne Chlala (Vocals) replied on behalf of the band:

  • How are you guys preparing for this concert? Any changes due to some observations from your last gig?

We’re practicing weekly, added more heaviness to our choice of covers as well as concentrating on the stage presence.

  • What are your expectations from this concert? Sound and audience wise…

We expect something really decent, Rockring have a reputation for that… Audience wise? hmmm well no idea really ; I’m just hoping for a sick moshpit! I guess there’s a good number of people attending , heard they’re preparing buses to pickup those who live far away 🙂 sounds good.

  • For how much time will the band be playing onstage / how many songs to be played?

Around 25-30 minutes , 6 songs that is.

  • What’s your goal as a band in the future? Perhaps recording some originals?

Strengthening our fan base, as well as reputation, then we might consider brainstorming for originals.

Elie Daakour: (Guitarist) Yeah to have a large fan base, to introduce people to bands that they don’t listen to as much as others, like for example In Flames which i think that not many people know their stuff, but they are very popular around the world… As for Arch Enemy they need no introduction…maybe later bands like At The Gates, Carcass and other not so popular bands will be covered. Its all about being a bit different and bringing something new to the scene.
