Heavy progressive metal group OAKS have an album out there with some other songs in the back for now. Some shows have been planned out with a lot else also in the works, everything coming along slowly but surely. The band discusses their music creativity and just wanting to make more music and playing it too!

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

Thibault an I where friends from our hometown (Strasbourg). Then we moved to Paris and we wanted to make music. Then we jammed on some tunes and found that those materials needed to be played in band. 

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

We tried different names and we were interested by this name Oak … Something strong.... heavy … But the name was already taken so we just put on an “S”. The rest is magic!!

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

We all live and work in Paris. And to be honest we are not really “in the scene”. But there are some good band here like Hangman's Chair or Karass..... and many others!!!

4. How would you describe your style?

I like to think that we are playing prog … but some will say it's heavypsychedelicoprogydoommetal ? To resume we play heavy and long song !! We try to mix a lot of different feelings in our songs. We all have a lot of influences. Similar or different … 

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

Genesis of the abstract is our first record. So we hope the people get banged with our our song. We try to put them in a journey in heavy areas.... 

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

We have some songs on the grill. But it's a long process …. 

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

Some shows are planed and naturally we want to play more... but we have to find the gigs .. promote them etc … Not really easy. We have to manage this with our life job and familly! We don't like to get bored.

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

Making music and playing it a lot !!

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