Interview with Prospective

Italian prog metal band Prospective released their debut EP "Chronosphere" this year, and they talked with Perfect Prog about it.

Prospective is a very young band but it doesn’t affect your position on the new prog metal scene, I think. Are you satisfied with where you stand?

Thanks for your kind words, our aim is to bring our music into people's heart and we of course are happy with the scene we are in.

How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard you yet? We guess our music is a mix of anger, melody and groove. We try to make the songs very dynamic in a prog way with some "lovely" parts but also syncopated and groovy as hell. Is there any new material you guys are working on?

We have a lot of new material in the works, cause we're on costant production of riffs and songs.

At the time we're doin' the pre-production for the album and also rehearsing some of the new songs to play them at gigs.

What do you guys do beside Prospective?

Flavio is studying Physics at University, Davide is a computer programmer and a Canoe Polo player, Luca is studying Nursing at University and he just graduated at the Music Conservatory of Bologna. Stefano is studying to become an Electronics Technician and Pietro just graduated in Tourism and, as a true talian, plays football.

What is the last concert you attended?

The last concert we attended was an Hardcore Fest (HxC fest) here in Bologna organized by some friends.

How do you stand in terms of live performances?

We stand like some friends that love playing toghether. There's a lot of fun on stage but also concentration and a lot of headbanging too.

How does a Prospective gig look like?

We stand like some friends that love playing toghether. There's a lot of fun on stage but also concentration and a lot of headbanging too.

Are you satisfied with the feedback you received from audiences?

We are very satisfied with the feedback we receive from the internet and after our concerts. People are always nice with us telling they really enjoy our music. We try to do the best for them.

Are there any plans to promote your debut EP “Chronosphere”?

We're trying to do as many gigs as we can to promote it and sell it as well; we also share playthroughs, trying to be very active on social networks.
