Having recently released their brand new album A New Age Of Insanity, Rejection are here to tell us all about themselves…
Simple things first – where are you guys from?
We are from Corinth, Greece.
How did you meet?
The guitarist and drummer know each other from high school. Playing gigs in the scene is how the rest met up really.
How long have you been playing as a band?
So the current lineup is a year old, relatively fresh, but the band has been around since 2007.
It is an English word that means either the dismissing or refusal of a proposal, idea, etc or the action of spurning a person’s affection. I am not at liberty of discussing further details on the matter though.
What are your influences?
Our influences would be modern groove metal.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
Straight to the gut grooves, big riffs and in-your-face vocals.
Do you have any particular lyrical themes?
We do dwell on the interaction of person and society. On our latest album more about technology and how dependent we are, but also technophobia and technophilia.
What’s your live show like? How many shows have you played?
We have a very aggressive vibe on stage, loud and dirty. Now that, I can’t answer but it’s a bunch. We’ve done a Greek tour a bunch of times and a European once. Hopefully this year will be another one.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done at a live show?
Seen chainsaws on stage. Our singer almost got burned by the pyro on a festival (he didn’t know they were there), proceeded to crowdsurf, fought for the mic and returned to the stage as the pyrotechnics went up again.
What kit do you use / guitars do you play / etc.?
We are experimenting with our sound with the latest album in order to output the best possible live quality. We use 6505 amps and ESP guitars. Sonor drums and Darkglass electronics for the bass sound. We are currently not endorsed by any of these companies.
What, if anything, are you plugging/promoting at the moment?
We are promoting our latest album titled A New Age Of Insanity. Take a listen on your streaming platforms.
What are your plans for 2020?
A European tour, some festivals and a possible second leg for our Greek tour.
If you were second on a three-band bill, which band would you love to be supporting and which band would you choose to open for you? A chance to plug someone you’ve toured with, or a mate’s band we’ve not heard of before!
Supporting Metallica would be awesome I guess. As for the band that would be supporting us, I don’t know, there’s a lot of awesome bands in the Greek metal scene…very tough to choose.
