Interview with Javi
Jandro and me since I started to play guitar, like 15 years ago,in several bands but Ramón joined the band in 2012.
2. What is the origin of the band name?
Ethiva is not a real word, We created it trying to put a name to the concept that we had in mind, a kind of fantasy world in context of our music.
3. Who's idea was it to include a puzzle with the die hard versions of the two albums you have released?
The Idea was of Andy (clostridium records), he always includes a little present in his "die hard editions"
4. Describe what a live concert is like for Ethiva? Do you improvise at all or just play the songs like on the album?
For us is really important the feeling in the moment to play, ambient, people, place....i don´t know, but we play in fuction of this feelings, some parts we try to play similar the album, vocals parts specially, but we always let space to the improvisation time.
5. Would you like to play outside of Spain?
Yes, of course, in fact for us is like a target. As I told you privately, sometimes Spain seems to be very far from anywhere, we just need the opportune call.
6. What do you see in the future for the band??
Well, about the future I hope see another record, i think we have not more pretensions.
