Subfire is a project that was founded in Levadia, Greece back in 2004. After many gigs and line-up changes the band found the sound that reflects the quality of the songs, heavy/power metal with strong heavy and epic riffs! After releasing two demo’s and an EP, Suibfire released their debut full length album named Define The Sinner in 2021. About the inception of the band and some other things I had a chat with Symeon and George of Subfire!
Hey guys, thanks for taking the time for an interview with Maizter Underground!
How are you guys doing? Covid and all.
Hello and thank you for giving us the opportunity to talk about Subfire. We are well at the time. It was a difficult period for all of us due to the situation of Covid but we are all ok and ready to rock.
Symeon, how did the band came to exist?
The band has been active since 2004. The whole thing started due to our love for playing and making music. There were a lot of local bands in our hometown and after a while it was inevitable to deal with this area. We have played many concerts and we have had many member changes throughout those years. The band faced a lot of difficult situations, especially when you try to find the right members for the band. We wanted to discover members with nice personality, with metal mentality and the perception to be the best they could be, and this goal is achieved. The next big thing was to play the right music for us, we experimented a lot but in the end we found our musical identity.
Can you introduce the band members one by one?
I am the only member since the beginning back in 2004 (Symeon Sanidas – drums),
George is our maestro since 2012 (George Larentzakis – guitars, backing vocals),
Rindra is our bass player since 2014 (Rindra Rado – bass)
Veandok is our incredible singer since 2021 (Veandok – vocals).
Symeon, you guys call yourself SUBFIRE. How did you come up with this name and what does it mean?
We always believed that the band name has to be one strong word. Also we thought that one word will reflect better the quality of our songs and the image of the band and we were right. Fire is a one of the strongest elements and we wanted to put it on the band name, so after careful research we ended up to SUBFIRE.
George can you tell me something about the journey this far? Where did the creativity came from for your first “ownwork” and who (if any) did inspire you?
I had always deep desire to compose new music. After my best man Symeon invited me to join Subfire, that deep desire just unleased and it was a perfect match along with his killing lyric writing skills! My inspiration comes according to my mood at that moment.
Symeon, what are the (longtime) goals with Subfire?
We always try to make careful moves and make small steps at the time but we have dreams. Our main goal is to distribute our music all over the world and if we think big we want, at a certain level, to live by our music.
So George, are there are singles/ an album coming up?
Yes we are currently working on our second full length album! The songs are almost there so stay tuned \m/
George, are there any shows or things planned?
At the moment we are enjoying all the positive feedback from our listeners worldwide! Of course there are plans for festivals and live shows but nothing official yet! We’ll let you know!
Well, that sounds promising! Please keep us updated! For now I want to thank you guys for your time! On behalf of everyone at Maizter Underground we want to wish you guys all the luck with all you take on in the future!
Thank u so much for the talk! It was a pleasure! The best is yet to come, so stay tuned !!! STAY METAL !!!
