Atomic Rocket Seeders Talks of Debut Album, New Material and Getting To Play Soon!

Three piece band ATOMIC ROCKET SEEDERS have a handful of single's and their debut album is out this Halloween season! But they are also always writing and already have new material ready for the next album! But for now, the band bans together to talk of this album, how they got started and just wanting to get back out there to play as soon as possible!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The music project started 7 years ago and it took 5 years to find the right people and get everything done to start with the gigs and recordings. Thierry “TAP” Porcedda (guitars, vocals) and Mike Ridel (guitars) were the founding members, although Mike unfortunately had to leave a few years ago. That’s also the moment we decided to work as a trio. TAP was then joined by bassist Thierry Hames and drummer Pascal Benci and that’s where it started to move forward. We had the opportunity to play many great gigs, for instance at the famous Metal festival Wacken Open Air in Germany and as opening act for LIMP BIZKIT in Luxembourg, and to start the recordings for our debut album, which will be release on October 30th. The band was then later joined by Bryan “Fox” Houe on the drums.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

One of our former bass players “Jellox” came up with that name. It fits the quite explosive songwriting and mainly socio-critical lyrics. So we decided to keep it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Luxembourg is obviously an extremely small country. One big advantage we have is the ability to work with many people across the borders, which makes the whole thing pretty international. Although the country’s size, the Luxembourgish music scene is growing more and more, with many artists writing and recording music in a really high level of quality. To only mentions a few: Mutiny on the Bounty, Scarred, Desdemonia, and many more.

4. How would you describe your style?

In short: Alternative Metal. The core of most songs stay Metal but we’re including every Rock and Metal subgenres and also different genres like Blues or Jazzy parts that come to our minds. We try to keep the songwriting as interesting as possible.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Four singles are already out on all common streaming platforms for everyone to listen to. Our first music video for “Eternal Ashes” was released on October 16th on YouTube and the debut album will be released on October 30th and also available as CD and limited edition double vinyl. We took our time to make sure that the sound quality on vinyl meets our quality standards as well as the whole package itself. We can’t wait to get it out there!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We’re constantly writing new songs and have already the first ones ready for the second album. But right now our focus lies on the upcoming release of our debut album.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

With the pandemic going on, we didn’t plan any gigs for the album promotion. We thought it would be a good idea to plan out everything  around, so that we’re fully ready to hit the stage as soon as the world’s ready again. Meanwhile we’ll surely have some gigs here and there, which you can follow on our Facebook page.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

As mentioned before, we’d love to finally begin touring and playing gigs again. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait a bit longer for this to happen on a regular basis. Meanwhile we’re focusing on the album release and writing new songs.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our music is available on all common streaming platforms and BandCamp, videos can be found on YouTube and the album will be available on CD and double vinyl, coming out October 30th.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We’d love to create an interesting and engaging experience while listening to our album and seeing us performing live. This should be for the metalheads who enjoy many different subgenres and other styles of music.
