Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life are pleased to bring you an interview with hard rock band, Rabid Hood.
1. How did you get started as a band?
We wanted to start a new hard rock band and Olsen, Aven and Martinussen started recording some demo songs a few years ago but it stopped there The songs remained untouched until we got Venås and Igland in the band in the summer of 2021 The band has extensive experience in the Metal and Rock n Roll stage with members from Helheim, ex-Taake, Trelldom, Nattverd, Aventyr and Spitfire++. so now we’re up and running and we are pretty excited about it.
2. How would you describe your sound?
Hard hitting, controlled sort of insanity, melodious hard rock, the reverb guitar solos, a lot of work and we are proud of it.
3. What bands/artists would you say have influenced your style of music?
We were all born in the 70’s so we like what we grew up with … like Motorhead, AC / DC, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath etc and we always wanted to be like them. So i think it has probably affected us as a band more than we think but thats how it is.
4. Has the rise of YouTube & music streaming helped or hindered you as a band?
It helps a lot reaching out to new fans all over the world but when it comes to sales, the old way was better because you had to physically buy a copy of your music.
5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not making music?
Relax and enjoy life with a beer in the hand.
6. What are your future plans musically? Tours?
We have big ambitions to get out there and play our music in front of live audience as much as we can and we have a lot of music ready to be recorded for a hole album, so there is a lot of work ahead. We want to try to make Rabid Hood a hard hitting hard rock band that people notices and talks about, and I hope we will achieve that in this crazy music world we live in LoL. And that is our modest goal.
