Quick introductory interview.

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

I’m Jerry Fielden, guitarist of Montreal metal duo AraPacis and we started in 2003 with members of some of my former bands from the 70s to try and recreate the exciting music of that period: Hard Rock, Progressive Rock and Heavy Metal, and mix it with more contemporary styles such as Doom, Metalcore, Prog Metal etc., with female lead vocals.

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

Doom for me was started by Black Sabbath the day their first album came out, when I was a teen, and they are one of our main influences, so it was a natural choice of style, and of course I love bands such as Candlemass, Electric Wizard, Witch Mountain, Evoken, Blood Ceremony, and so forth.

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

Doing a song with Don Airey of Deep Purple, and one with Vinny Appice of Black Sabbath, and sharing the stage with like Doro, Blaze Bayley, Uli Jon Roth, etc.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin

5. What are your plans for the near future?

We are releasing a Doom EP “Déjà Doom” of 4 of our older songs remade in Doom mode, on Blackhouse Records in late June 2018. Also starting work on our 7th full length soon.

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

We appreciate all of you that would listen to us! Doom is positively a style we love and we’re very happy to release a full Doom set that we hope you will enjoy listening to!
