Steal My Hope exclusive interview
1- Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of Steal My Hope? Where is the band from?
Steal My Hope is a one man´s instrumental project from Finland. The main line is melodic metal, but you can probably hear many different metal/heavy/rock genres in Steal My Hope´s music.
2- The Battle Within is the band's second full album, how long did it take to write?
It took about two years in total. I´ve composed, recorded, programmed and mixed both albums, so it takes a while.
3- What musical influence inspires the band's compositions?
Any good music inspires, no matter what the genre is. But just to name a few great metal/rock bands : Sentenced, Soilwork, Scar Symmetry, Kalmah, Charon.
4- The project started in 2016, can you tell us the details?
At the beginning of Steal My Hope I made a few songs with a couple of other musicians. But pretty soon it was clear that we didn´t have the time or passion to work together anymore, so I decided to continue Steal My Hope as a solo project.
5- The new album title is The Battle Within, can you give us details about the content and more in-depth meaning of this title?
I was really proud of the first Steal My Hope album "Featherhammer", but I think I pushed the limit at least on the production side with this one. I think it follows the same musical line as the first album, but it´s maybe a little bit more straightforward. Of course I tried to make even better tracks and the title "The Battle Within" kind of resembles that, but I actually came up with it when I was doing the final mixing and the feeling I had was just that.
6- Have you performed any shows in your area? if so, how receptive and supportive are the people to your music?
At least for now, Steal My Hope is just a studio project, so no gigs. But the feedback in general has been really positive.
7- Thanks for your participation, finally, what is the best way to get a hold of the band, in case someone wants to book or promote the band? Any final words?
Thank you for the interview and support and whoever reads this, take a listen of Steal My Hope and tell me what you think! Keep on Rocking!
