Q & A: ALT METAL BAND FALLING GIANT DISCUSS THEIR ELEGANT AND DARK MUSIC




PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR US WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOU AND

YOUR MUSIC AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.



I'm Gaetano, Falling Giant frontman. We are an Alternative Metal band born in Rome in 2017.

From then until today we have never stopped believing in a common dream.

In 2018 the band began its apprenticeship in the underground reality of Rome, self-producing our songs and videos, combining our passion for music with the visual and imaginative work of cinema.

The band's sound is a compromise between Alternative Metal and Alternative Rock, with electronic and cinematic influences, looking for dark, sensual, powerful and elegant atmospheres.


We love the show, we love to get involved, we like to mix the cards of the game. We throw glitter on the dark.



TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM?



Our latest release is our first album titled MMXVII MMXXII which is nothing more than a collection of all the singles created from 2017 to today.


The singles of MMXVII MMXXII are the past and present of Falling Giant.

The songs have all been self-produced by the band in recent years and are all characterized by stylistic experiments, achieved with the experience and harmony of the group.


Darkness / sensuality / elegance may be the mantra of this collection, which is the band's very first album.


The singles featured in the album ( all singles are already available on all music digital platforms) :


1) Perseverance (2021)


2) Kings Of Babylon (2022)


3) The Speech (2017)


4) Hades (2020)*


5) Golden Boys (2022)


6) Mountains (2020)


7) Hades Acoustic Version (2021)


* For the single Hades we would like to make a note. Hades is our flagship single which has reached a million views on youtube and continues to do many streams, especially in Mexico, Brazil, United States, Germany and England. Thanks to this single that many people have started to know us.


For those who buy the album on bandcamp will receive a nice bonus track surprise





WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?



This album is the essence of the band of these years. Our artistic and human growth. Being a collection of singles that have been released over a five-year time frame, the quality from single to single changes. But it is part of our growth process.


'Hades' speaks of betrayal, of passion.


'The Speech' is a hymn to peace.


'Kings of Babylon' is a critique of today's fast and frivolous society.


'Golden Boys' is a tribute to the rock scene of the 80s, a sequence of quotes related to the most famous rock stars.


'Mountains' is the life growth process.


'Perseverance' is fighting song, a hymn to the courage to never give up.


The rest is at your own free interpretation.



CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?


It is the narrative of the eroticism of human existence.


WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?


As mentioned before, it was the single 'Hades' that changed our perception of a band. It is a song that has reached many people in the world and that has made us discover it. I got the chills reading a message from a Brazilian girl. She said that Hades is the song she listens to give herself courage.

And that's just one of the many messages that have come to us since we released Hades two years ago.


It had a huge impact online



DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEO FILMED BY YOUR BAND OR ANOTHER


ARTIST?


My favorite video clip is undoubtedly 'From Yesterday' by Thirty Seconds to Mars.


It's exactly the kind of direction I love for video clips.


It goes without saying that Jared Leto is a genius. Also the video clip, also directed by him, of ‘Hurricane’.


It's cinema guys.
