Questions on the Go | Timechild

“Haze Of The Dawn” is the third single from the Danish heavy rock band TIMECHILD. The song shows the more energetic and uptempo part of the band’s characteristic sound and deals with how man’s search for a creative force and the purpose of our own existence, has derailed us from the immediate path forward.

Timechild’s debut album, “And Yet It Moves”, will be released in November via Mighty Music.

Until we reach November, Metal Digest got to ask them a few Questions on the Go.

Welcome to Metal Digest

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

Massive and organic heavy rock!

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

Our debut album “And Yet it Moves” is scheduled for release in November this year, so at this point we are touring as much as possible to get our music out to the crowds.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?

We want people to feel surprised, we don’t write the same song twice. We want people so feel nostalgia, but at the same time the feeling of something new.

Major influences: Who put you on this path?

The foundation of our sound is clearly laid by the heavy riffs of band like Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin, the harmonized guitars of bands like Deep Purple or Thin Lizzy and the vocal arrangements of bands like Uriah Heep or Queen. But we also draw inspiration from wide range of more recent bands like Baroness or Graveyard and other genres link folk and classical music.

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?

Probably Germany or the UK. Those are both countries with great heavy rock history and fanbase that we already have our eyes on.

What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release.

We are generally not a band that writes 30 or 40 songs for a record a chooses the best 10 at the end. We work with all our songs for a while, changes what needs to be changed, and in that way we rarely through a whole song away. Generally, though, we have three important things that we look for in a good song:

The Hook: How do you remember after the first playthrough. This can be many different things. A vocal line, a riff, a solo or a beat? The most importing thing is that it sticks.

The Sound: In heavy rock the right sound is massively important in order to create the right feel and creative style. We have worked a lot on this on our debut album, trying to create a sound that is both high quality, but still retains the feeling of a real live band playing together.

The Story: What message do you want to communicate in the song. Whether this is more obvious or hidden, it is important for us that our lyrics contribute with another dimension to the music and not just a second thought written at the last minute.

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

 “And Yet It Moves”

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?

A great reception of our debut album and as much touring as possible.

Play one of the big festivals in Europe

We like to start out with our own local rock and metal festival Copenhell and after that we’ll move across the borders!

Until we meet again,

Chelf
