About Xavier Boscher

How do get to know someone? You can stalk their socials but if you want to bypass small talk and get to know your favorite bands and artists beyond the surface level, this is the place to be. Sometimes the oddball questions allow you to learn the most interesting things about a person and see the varied, unique, and special qualities of a creative mind. Shall we?

Welcome to Metal Digest’s ABOUT. column

Please introduce the band in the most spontaneous way.

I am Xavier Boscher, a French instrumental Rock/Metal guitarist, I have produced more than 40 albums for various projects and for my solo career, I was also part of the French extreme Metal band MISANTHROPE

What’s something an outsider wouldn’t know about your band?

That I’m all alone to record my albums, from the blank sheet to the distribution, I work like a craftsman.

What’s the career highlight you’re most proud of?

My career with MISANTHROPE at the end of last century, it was amazing with European tour, recording sessions in Sweden…

Lyrics that stuck with you?

A lot from other artists, but I release a lot of instrumental stuff, my guitar lines are the melodies of my soul

What’s the phone app you use most?

Whatsapp, to communicate with my friends

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?

make music, again and again and see my children, my friends.

Are you more of a “play music to live” or a “live to play music” type of person?

Live to play music, it doesn’t matter if I don’t make a living from this activity, the main thing is the creation and the music itself

How would your 10-year-old self-react to what you do now?

he would be fascinated and horrified I think, even if my music remains confidential, I am very proud of what I achieve but in my music there is an autobiographical thread in the watermark, and this child of 10 would therefore have access to his own vision of the future, which must be destabilizing

What career advice would you give to young musicians in the rock and metal industry?

make music, create, have fun, if it has to work it will work but the main thing is to have fun and not take yourself too seriously, we won’t come out alive…

If you could do it all over again, would you pursue the same career in music?

obviously, I have a visceral need to create, I would do everything the same.
