Fear Theories
From: Haugesund, Norway
Sounds like: Metal

1. How did the band come together and form? Who thought of the name “Fear Theories” and is there any meaning behind it?

Andreas, Brage and HÃ¥kon was playing together just for fun in 2010 and then Ole joined after a recording session were he recorded a guitar solo. We all got really impressed and Andreas stepped up and asked him to join the band. Ole came up with the bandname after a year of trying to find one.

2. What do you want listeners to take away from your music?

We want our listeners to have a great feeling of pleasure after listening to us. That feeling of wanting to hear it all again and again and again!

3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

We would describe it as a catchy mix between traditional and modern metal.

4. What can people expect from your live show?

We always go on stage with the mind set of playing our best gig to date whether it's 5 people or full house. Furthermore we always aim to hit the audience with immense energy, and a wall of sound!

5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Kvelertak is a band all of us would like to tour with. Other than that, there's loads of other bands we would love to tour with. We would probably say yes to anyone asking us except non-metal/rock bands/artists.

6. Any crazy show stories?

One time on stage, Andreas licked me (Ole) in my face. It was horrible! I am still haunted by it to this day.

7. What’s your take on the current state of metal?

I don't think any of us has really thought of that. We listen to a lot of different music hence many different thoughts around it.

8. What’s the current music scene like there in Norway both locally and country wide?

There's a great music community in our town, there's many bands and the bar is high!

9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

We don't support illegal downloading of music. Respect the artist.

10. What’s next for Fear Theories?

We're going in the studio to record 2 songs as a single in January. Stay Tuned for news!

11. Any shoutouts?
