[Interview] Down with Spacement [GR]

We had the chance to speak with Spacement and we present you this mini interview to get to know the band a little better.

Welcome to Downtuned. Tell us a few words about the group, when and where did you get started? How did you meet?
Hello Downtuned! We are Spacement, a psychedelic doom band from Athens, Greece. We started around the summer of 2012, in a basement. We were in the same university and decided to start a band expressing ourselves!

Which are your musical influences?
We are fans of the heavy sound, so our influences are Sleep, Om, Electric Wizard and bands with this heavy fuzzy sound.

What’s your lyrics about? What catches your interest?
Mostly we are concerned about how people feel doomed and trapped, within their bodies and they leave their soul abandoned, not trying to free themselves from it.

Is the communication with the crowd something that you care about, in all levels, or do you do music for yourselves?
Of course we care about communicating with the crowd, but mainly we like to express ourselves from our music, and that make us feel full.

Do you feel like you’re a part of a particular “scene” in which you would like to join and contribute or you are indifferent about it?
The greek underground stoner/doom scene is getting bigger and bigger every year, and we are glad to be a part of it! There are so many bands that play awesome music, who wouldn't like to be a part of it?

How do you imagine that the band will be in ten years from now?
I think we will have released a few records by then, and hopefully more people will know us. Also we hope that we will make a tour in the rest of Europe.

Which famous artist you would like to do a guest to a record of yours and why?
We would prefer Billy Anderson to work with the production and recording for a record! He knows all the secrets of the doom sound!

What plans do you have for the near future?
We would like to make as many lives as possible, to promote our music and sometime in the winter to start recording.

We wish you good luck to whatever you’re doing, the epilogue is yours.
Thanks for the invitation! Just stay fuzzy and doom on!
