How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
METAL ! is the term we prefer to describe our music. Slovenly World is hard to describe because of all the influences we got. We are mostly inspired by classic American metal band like metallica, megadeth and bands of our generation like slipknot, machine head, mudvayne. But our influences are bigger because of all the different taste of all the members in the band! By random we can say Death, Motorhead, Dream theater, Opeth, Linkin park, children of bodom, strapping young lad... We also like all the djent scene and modern metal scene which we try to integrate in our music. We love to say that Slovenly World is a melting pot of all the music we love, our style is defined by that we love to listen and play with no frontiers.
Why should a metal head buy your demos/albums?
If you're open minded we think you will always find something to catch you in our song. A brutal riff with blast beat, a chunky psychedelic groovy riff, a melodic or epic chorus to makes you want to slay dragons on the top of the mountain. To us the two fundamental elements of Slovenly World is Brutality and catchy melody. If you like that you will find your happiness!
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We released 2 demos since 2008, 1 E.P (Alternate ending) in 2012 and our first full length album "Between cloud and earth" is out since March 2 2015! At this point it is to early to have returns on the album but the E.P and the demos have been chronicled several times by many websites, In France and other countries and the returns are mainly good.
The media keeps to be curious on our work so this is a great thing for us and it push us to do our best.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We love to play live and this is where Slovenly World take all of is dimension. We have played about 60 dates since 2010 in France and in different countries. We planned to play in Italy in may 2015 and we hope to travel by the Switzerland, at this occasion, to spread our music. We already have plane shows in the south of France and also hope to do 2 or 3 dates in Belgium.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are not the kind of band that just follow what the others do, we are trying our best to make something different, we also try to bring the most energic show we can
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
For the future we hope to continue express ourselves by our music and by pushing the limits. We hope to find a label too, to support our project. And certainly More shows, more music, More metal, New record and Music Video, More after parties and more Jack daniel's.
