1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Critical Heartbeat" and is there any meaning behind it?

We start to create the instrumental music, after we listen to the music until we write the lyrics and have a story. We speak one day with the band, we try different names and we like all this one.

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

Very heavy and loud music! And have a great time with us when they listen to us!

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

Our latest album contains over 1h40 of music! There's something for everyone: heavy, power, prog, metalcore, rock, ballads and acoustic. So you'll have plenty of choices depending on what you prefer to listen to!

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

Linkin Park, System of a Down and Scorpions.

5. How has Covid affected what you do?

With COVID we had just enough time to compose our entire album!

6. What’s your take on the current state of Metal?

Young and interesting bands start to take to the big stage. We hope to be there soon too!

7. What's the current music scene like there in Switzerland?

More rock music.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

Unfortunately, I don't think that's enough. Depending on the work we do, we're not rewarded enough. I hope that one day we'll be able to have more than we do now.

9. What's next for Critical Heartbeat?

The CHB Revolution Tour 2024!
