Heptaedium take on the A-Z challenge

May 25, 2018 |

Tech metal act Heptaedium releases new album The Great Herald Of Misery today! We asked the duo to take on out A-Z challenge so we can find out more!

A song that made you want to make music?

Florent – (sic) by Slipknot, I was really impressed when it came out.
Mickael – Transfixion by Meshuggah, still a reference for me.

Best rider you’ve had?

Florent – I’ve never had a rider because so far I’ve always had minimalist configurations (human and material) but I plan on asking for an inflatable pony for the next shows.

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

Florent – Nothing special or so crazy tbh

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Mickael – The texts approach more or less all the deviances of the human being and his servitude in a general way. If I had to pick a sentence on this ep, maybe, “they want rebellion but they never protest”

Easiest song you wrote?

Florent – ‘I’m A Symmetric Mass Of Hate‘ from ‘The Great Herald Of Misery‘ ! Probably my easiest track to play and also the fastest one I wrote/record (an afternoon I think)

Favourite song in your set?

Mickael Till The Seventh Snake Eat Their Empty shell.
Florent  I’m The Great Herald Of Misery !

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Florent – Probably Chad from Frontierer, Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah and Aaron Funk aka Venetian Snares

Hardest thing about being a musician?

Florent – Making music
Mickael – As a singer, watch the drummer install his drumkit.


Interesting fact about you?

Florent – I’m a little bit hateful and lunatic.

Jokes you like to tell?

Florent – Jokes about poop and things like that…That’s certainly why I’m not very funny.

Mickael – Jokes about moms (your moms…)
Florent – Yep… so… We’re not super fun.

Key to writing a song?

Florent – Get drunk

Longest distance travelled to play a show?

Mickael – With my old band, we made about 2000 km in a week end in a very old car ( came back with a rent one ) for an unpaid concert in a shitty bar in front of nobody except some people here by mistake.

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Mickael – Florent from Heptaedium, is an incredible and ultra creative guy, he would almost be a good person if he wasn’t so ginger.

Florent – Yes I agree, I love myself too… and fuck you Mick, you’re a fucking scumbag, I’ll fuck your mother in the ass so hard she never be able to walk again.

New band or artist you’d recommend?

Florent – Not really new but not well known, I would say Hardcore Anal Hydrogen, they are incredible and the latest album is monstrously awesome.  

Opening for this band or artist would be ideal?

Florent – I’d love to open for Car Bomb one day !

MickaeI – would love to do the premiere of Twelve Foot Ninja one day.

Place you’d most like to tour?

Florent – Everywhere! but I have to admit, I’d love to go to Japan. (weebz)

Mickael – I’d really like to bring our music to North Korea.

Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Florent – “J’vais t’empaler la chatte très très fort”, it’s kinda a cute way to say “I love you so much” in french.
Mickael – say something stupid but say it often, she’ll end up sounding wise.

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

Florent – There are several possible meanings, but it was to send a message to someone I thought I’d never see again.

See us live at?

Florent – Euroblast soon !

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

Mickael – I think there’s always been good and bad music at any time but it’s really not a very objective concept.
Florent – I agree with Mick ! The cool thing today is that you have very easy access to the technology to make the music and broadcast it, you only have to know how to use it.

Unusual merchandise?

Florent – not yet ! but I’ve some idea in the corner of my head.

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?

Florent – not really.

What do your fans mean to you?

Florent – They’re just money bags, they watch Hentai all day long, they’re good for nothing else. I fucking hate them.

X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

Mickael – Florent is on a haemorrhoid treatment, which explains his awful sense of humor
Florent – Remember what I said about your mom, Mick… I’ll probably do it to your wife too.

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

Florent – the bass player, it’s always the bass player’s fault.
Mickael – Yes

Zoo animal that best describes your personality?

Florent – A mix between a Sloth and a Pony.
Mickael – A Bear, not a furydom one.
