1.Would you guys please introduce yourselves and explain your role in the band?
My name is Valery, I’m a guitar player and I live in Switzerland. Before Chaoseum, I played in a band called Elferya.
2.Where did you guys meet and how did you form this band?
Loïc and I wanted to create a new band in a metalcore style. Our first goal was to play a lot of concerts and also play outside Europe. I know Loïc since 2014, when he joined Elferya.We found Chaoseum in January 2018.We asked Greg, our drummer,to join us.CK came later, in 2019, after our USA tour with Soulfly. He was too busy when we started the band.
3.What kind of music do you make or would like to make in the future?
Our first album “First Step To Hell” sounds between heavy and metalcore style.And our new album “Second Life” with CK on vocals is more metalcore and nu-metal.
4.What do you enjoy the most about the process of making music together?
Our first motivation is the stage.Of course, having a new album, writing new songs are good, but on stage with some fans in front of us is our best satisfaction.
5.What are some of your favourite themes to explore through your music?
Each song of our new album talks about a second life. Sometimes it’s just about our personal experience.We also like to use some different sounds and effects in our music.
6.Who are some artists that you love or who you’d say has had a huge influence on your work?
Bands like Korn, Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium and many more. We listen to a lot of different bands.
7.Where can someone looking for your music find it?
All streaming platforms. For physical stuff, only during our concerts or on our website. 8.What’s your favourite part about touring/doing live performances?
The energy, the atmosphere and the contact with the public. For me, it’s a magical moment.
8.What kind of message would you like to give your fans, through your music?
We hope that people travel during a little time when they listen out music. This is a divertissement moment.
9.Where do you guys see yourselves in the future, or what are your future plans for the band?
We’re writing some news songs. We would like to have a new album in 2021 and another one in 2022.In October, we will be on tour in Europe with Fleshgod Apocalypse.
