Quick introductory interview.

Interview with Fractured Spine.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

We are Fractured Spine from Finland and the band originally started as a one-man project by Antti Kirjavainen. Cousin Timo Kirjavainen joined in 2012 and the 2nd demo "Eerie Messages" was released.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

We're big fans of low-tuned, distorted guitars and slower tempos. But to be honest, our music incorporates many different styles, even faster songs. Yet it all revolves around baritone and semiacoustic guitars. We use both clean and unclean vocals and aim for melodic/atmospheric style.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

The band existing for so long and that so many people have liked our music over the years. We're celebrating 10 years since the first demo but Fractured Spine is actually way older than that.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

My Dying Bride, Katatonia and Anathema.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

We have several concept EP releases coming up, as well as a compilation album. So at the moment we're finishing up all the material we've been working hard for the last 3 years. After that, it's back to making more music I suppose. :)

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

We would like to thank you and everyone who have shown interest towards our music over the years!
