Music Interviews : The Last Element

Would you guys please introduce yourselves and explain your role in the band?
The Last Element originates when we face the passing of one dearly loved, the hardship of
a broken home or the breaking of hearts – it is the first spark, the first sense of emotion, a
first feeling that evolves into a creative mind. Bringing these elements together they find a
way to grow – Broken hearts fit like pieces of puzzles and these pieces mend into one big
heart.
We believe there are many like us, waiting to join our hearts.
Together we are stronger, together we are The Last Element.
My name is Jasper and my role is the lead singer.

Where did you guys meet and how did you form this band?
We started a while ago, Jan and Robert already knew each other from previous musical
endeavors, later on they found Jasper and Noah and The Last Element was
formed!
For each of us it just fitted like pieces of puzzles, the sound, the style it all came together.

What kind of music do you make or would like to make in the future?
We make metal and in the future we would like to make metal :)! Kidding, I think we play a
variety of styles, but the core is metal/rock. We love experimenting and not binding
ourselves though, so each song has the opportunity to be what it’s supposed to be.

What do you enjoy the most about the process of making music together?
Hearing a song come to life, it’s just magical, when step by step you hear the things that
we’re inside your head being recorded and shaped into a whole. Furthermore Jan, Noah
and me we can really bring new aspects to a song when working together and sparring on
how it should sound.

What are some of your favorite themes to explore through your music?
That would be life, simple as that, a lot of emotions arise from the daily, when I write lyrics
it’s always inspired by real life events that I go through, some I’ve been through and some
are happening, but mostly I just write what pops up in my head. I guess it’s mostly inspired
by darker themes in my life, or at least troubles we as humans deal with. I need a pen and
paper to clear my head, screaming and singing it all out of my head when I record. In the
end it’s something we all face and we all have different ways of expressing what we feel.
I’m sure a lot of people can relate to the lyrics, cause honestly it’s not about me… it’s about
you.

Who are some artists that you love or who you’d say has had a huge influence on your
work?

There are tooo many! But a small sample of artists I love and that influenced me in no
particular order.
Marilyn Manson, Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Bring Me The Horizon, Linkin Park, Slipknot to
name a few. In different stages of my live I wanted to sound exactly like some of those guys and I wondered if I ever could sing or sound like that. In the end though, it’s all
different styles that I fooled around with, that helped me get better and helped me find my
own sound/voice.

Where can someone looking for your music, find it?
Everywhere! We’re on Spotify, Pandora, Youtube, Deezer, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch…
just everything. But if you want a quick link, here you can find us on Spotify:

What’s your favorite part about touring/ doing live performances?
Giving it our all, seeing the crowd respond and meeting new people! It’s just such a blast
to perform and especially when it’s a bigger show, seeing so many people enjoy the music
you make, it’s the best feeling in the world.

What kind of message would you like to give your fans, through your music?
Always be strong and hold on, life has some pretty nasty twists, but also so much beauty,
Each of our songs tries to shed light on both aspects, but in the end I believe we are made
to be with each other, finding strength as one, sharing our hearts our laughs our everything
with the people around us. So keep sharing yourself with the world.

Where do you guys see yourselves in the future, or what are you future plans for the
band?

Hopefully doing some very cool shows, releasing an epic album and meeting a lot of cool
people along the way. We really want to aim for the stars, probably gonna be hard, but it’s
all about the journey right. We love making music and love playing the songs we wrote, it’s
amazing to see how many people have already joined our crusade to conquer the world.
Hopefully you will become one of them as well !
