Holding a large amount of distaste for major label Petrified - Mesh (2) - We Collide (CD, the trio chose to read more. Neil Taylor was in Me read more. Album We Collide. Petrified Lyrics. You're the breath in us too You're the test of what's true You're the one that stops them You become the problem It's just a different side Of the many walls in your mind The walls with secret panels Built with knives and hammers.
Petrified By what you've done - and you've just begun I hope you get your way But what a price to pay Petrified By what you've done - and you've just begun I hope you get your way But what a price to pay. How did you decide which direction to take with your musical creations after the success of the first album? It was just 3 guys with synthesizers and different musical backgrounds and tastes trying to write songs.
Our only middle ground was the fact we like electronic music. It was pretty much a combination of influences with Mark reluctantly taking on the role as lead singer. A handful of Brits know the man and his notable successes in German dance charts, whether on his own or in tandems with the likes of John Davies? He somehow talked his record company into tracking us down and asked if Mark would like to provide vocals on one of his projects.
When we were asked, we had no idea who he was or his popularity in Germany at the time. He was looking for the right person to provide the vocals. Mark was asked and it went from there. Haha… We were flown out to Fuerteventura where the locals had made us this makeshift raft. We were towed out to sea and filmed by a speed boat circling us.
It was one Petrified - Mesh (2) - We Collide (CD the funniest and bizarre experiences ever. I had a broken arm at Album) time and had the cast removed for the video. At one point the boat broke down and we were left drifting out to sea. Yes, this felt like a huge turning point for us.
We had just signed a major record deal with Sony Music and gave up our day jobs to embark on a full-time music career. It all of a sudden felt very real and expensive. It was a very expensive album with big budgets. And it was big…. Yes, that was a strange experience. We had spent years trying to shrug off the DM comparisons, so the last thing we wanted was the guy who shaped their sound working with us.
As it happened, he was a really nice guy. He was a very focussed engineer and brought out a lot of what we thought were quite incidental bits of music to the foreground and made them the hooks. We learnt quite a lot. Were you very impacted by his departure? Yes definitely. Mark and I thought it was the end. We found ourselves with no deal at the time and a band member missing.
It took a few weeks of pondering before we Album) realised that we just enjoy writing and producing music at any level. So we dusted ourselves down and started writing again. I knew of Olaf from other bands and his work with them. We hit it off straight away.
I think Olaf was really in tune with what we were trying to achieve with each album. His mixing Petrified - Mesh (2) - We Collide (CD production skills are second to none. Oh I cringe at that title… legends? It was a great experience. We travelled right across America doing a show every night. It was like starting again for us. No real roadies or tech crew, just 3 bands, a few crew members and a cowboy driving the bus.
We played some really big shows and some downright awful small shows, but the whole thing was so good. It really does take experiences like that to establish you as a band.
