|You have just released A Sign Of Things To Come through Solid State
Records. Personally I think it's not easy to describe your music style-wise. How would you
like to describe 3rd Root's style?
we like to consider it heavy music with groove, as
well as haveing dynamics. We don't try to write a specific way we just work out all the
section then put them together in see what happens sometimes it works, then sometimes it
dosent' and we rewrite it until it does.
Question 2: In my review of the album I labeled your music as new metal because I hear
influences of bands like the Deftones and Korn who are described as new metal by some.
Still, that label doesn't satisfy me. I could also label it as new or post hardcore.
Basically I have a hard time to comprehend your music. How do people respond to
your music and how do others try to describe it?
Well when we are together the four of us have really different backgrounds as far as
musical taste goes, alot of reggie, emo rock, new metal, hardcore, so we try to
blend them all, the response has been positive because its not your typical show were
every song is fast or slow we try to mix it up so that we can all have a good time.
People often try to say we are a hardcore band with a soft edge but now im just going with
new metal, I don't see the point because we try to be different stylisticly we love the
heavyness of a groove
and the cleanness of emotional rock so thats the blend right there.
