The first time I saw this band’s name, SWEEPING DEATH, it made me think of Metallica’s “Creeping Death”. The name made me think thrash. Was I right in thinking so?
I am a word buff so when I find a band name that excites me I want to know the reason behind the choice. So how did you pick your name?
-SWEEPING DEATH is the combination of two words with different meanings for us. “Sweeping” reflects our Style of Guitar playing: fast, melodic and virtous. It is a guitar technique wich we love to incoperate in our songs. “Death”…In the end it all columinates in death. For us Death is not only the end of life, it became a symbol for what we love the most, it is our sign for love towards the metal scene in general. The Music, the people and the passion you can expirience in this context.
There are so many genres and sub-genres today that it is hard to keep track of them all. So what was it that made you pick the style you play?
-I think we never really thought about it that way. I´d rather say the style picked us. It is what we are capabel (mehr …)
