Fans, Drums, and Rock ‘n’ Roll: A Heart-to-Heart with Kingseeker’s Marius

Today, we’ re exploring the dark tones of Kingseeker newest album “Passing Moments Caught Forever” So I must say that this record it is like a crazy collision of post-hardcore metal screamo and just about general heavy rock and this blows up my head.

From the hyper song “Young and Naive” to the madness of ” Hypnopompia ” as well as mathcore feelings in Cold Blooded/Ice Blood Kingseeker are delivering music trip above average. The title of the album? Instead, it’s all about the nostalgia of dreams and waking from realities based on Jan working as a photographer.

Interview with the Kingseeker drummer Marius. It is about his transition from being an amateur Rock Band player to absorbing live concerts, video games and life’s up-and down process. Marius names his drumming idols and describes the development of his style. Moreover, he comes clean on the difficulties created by drum machines as they invaded the music scene.

We are lifting the veil on Marius’ life beyond a drum kit, discussing that video games and horror collectibles happen to be his passions. And, of course, we’re getting Kingseeker’s plans for the future. Therefore, fasten your belt and get ready for the passage of pure essence from Marius to Kingseeker. To good music and best moments!

What is your stage name.
My name is Marius, and i play drums in Kingseeker.

Is there a story behind your stage name?
We released our first three singles under “Coastlines” but there were so many bands named that, so we were hard to find so we changed it. Kingseeker is from the primordial serpent “Kingseeker Frampt” in Dark Souls.

Where do you find inspiration?
I get inspiration by watching and listenening other bands play live. Video Games and diffrent kinds of Emotions.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
Music for me has always been a way of escaping life and responsabilities. Ive always had music on my ears no matter where I was.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
I guess, my family is somewhat Musical, but I’m the most musical out of them all

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
Guitar Hero and Rock Band Game Series

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
I actually learned to play drums by playing Rock Band on my Xbox 360! Guitar is self learned.

Fans, Drums, and Rock ‘n’ Roll: A Heart-to-Heart with Kingseeker’s Marius

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
Metallica was the first band I ever saw play live back in 2008 or 09 if I remember correctly

How could you describe your music?
My music outside of Kingseeker is a weird mix of lots of different stuff! It’s a mix of metalcore, Post Rock and prog. I really just make whatever I like and feel like so im not restricting myself to one style

Describe your creative process.
i usually just sit down at my studio mac and play my guitar and sometimes it leads to pretty banging riffs and grooves and other times it just ends up being nothing

What is your main inspiration?
I honestly don’t know

What musician do you admire most and why?
I would say Matt Halpern (periphery), Danny Carey (Tool) and Mario Duplantier (Gojira) their drumming and the way they do things is pretty unique and interesting! And I would love to mix their style into my own somehow

Has your style evolved since the beginning of your career?
Oh yes! When I first started out I wanted to play the same music and style as metallica, now im much more open to play anything that sounds nice and feels right

Who do you see as your main competitor?
Drum machines

What are your interests outside of music?
Video games and video game/horror collectibles

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I would probably be dead

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
Drum machines. Everyone is too reliant on those things now and it messes with my creativity and how I think and work with drums. But I understand why people use them and I do use them myself to write simple toned down sketches for my real drumming for later which I then can work and improve on by getting a real feeling for how the song is

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
Make music gear more affordable
Drum gear is expensive as hell

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
Our singer Jan is better to answer this:
Passing Moments Caught Forever is about feeling trapped in the past, mulling over fantasy worlds you create in your head, what ifs, regrets, nostalgic memories (both real and false) and regrets.
Its about growing up and understanding that your pre concieved notions and biases arent necessarily correct, just because you think they are.

What are your plans for the coming months?
Get some more practice in both guitar and drums! Prep for upcoming gigs and studio stuff

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
Not sure yet

What message would you like to give to your fans?
Thanks for taking the time to listen to our music, hopefully we get to play all over with this one. I can’t wait for you to hear it!
