Fluwid Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have
never heard of you before?

Fluwid is a melodic metal band based out of Dayton, Ohio, and have been
together since 2004. We're currently touring on our new album "From
Surface To Suffocation" on Mortal Music.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?

Melodic metal that we hope appeals to the entire metal and rock community.

3. What is the meaning behind the band's name?

Its about the flow of the music, which is also basically the style in
which we write. Making the songs move from one piece to another with a
sonicly pleasing transition. It's meant to be enjoyable to anyone, no
matter how heavy or melodic of a musical taste the listener has.

4. How would you describe the lyrical content of the music?

Each song has it's own story, of pleasure or pain, based on situations
we all face everyday. Were not so much into swearing in the lyrics, but
rather expressing our thoughts and feelings across in a much more
meaningful use of the language.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and
how would you describe your stage performance?

Every show is a great show, simply because we just enjoy playing. But
sharing the stage with bands such as Devildriver, Mushroomhead and All
That Remains are always memorable. As for our stage show, it's what we
pride ourselves on. Anyone who has the cd can listen to it anytime they
want, but they come to the see a show, so it's always extremely high
energy, crowd oriented, and very intense.

6. Do you have any upcoming touring plans?

Currently were booking for August and September to continue pushing
the new album.

7. How has your music been recieved so far by extreme metal fans
worldwide?

Everywhere we go we seem to be well recieved. And fans stay fans,
writing us and asking when were comming back and asking to help any
way they can. Our fans are extremely loyal to the music.

8. What do you hope to acomplish your music?

We hope to make a living spreading good music to those who want it.
What more could anyone ask for? Enjoying what we do is huge.

9. What direction do you see the music heading into on future releases?

Most bands seem to progressively get lighter as time passes on, but
we're doing the opposite. The music continuously get heavier while
staying true to the mold of our melocic nature.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your
music and what are you listening to nowadays?

We're influenced by anything that graces our ears. It could be In
Flames one minute and Queen the next. We listen to everything,
including some wierd sh#t. (wait for the Toni Braxton)

11. What are some of your interests outside of music?

Really, it's still anything involving music. We spend our off time going
to shows, helping bands, designing band art, etc. We're never really off
the clock.
