It's a pleasure for us to have a chat with PETE FRANKLIN of CHARIOT, the classic nwobhm band, about new platter THE NEW HORIZON DAWNS and not only! 💿 Hi, it’s a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal PETE FRANKLIN of CHARIOT! Welcome!! It’s finally out your new album THE NEW HORIZON DAWNS. Can you tell us somethin’about its composition process? We had the pelasure to reviewing it and we were really impressed!! The process is fairly usual, I'll a mass enough guitar riffs & ideas to get 5 or 6 songs together down my studio at the bottom of my garden, then Jeff our drummer will come round and puts some drums down, then Paul, then John. We will then all decide on the best ones to go on. 💿 Can you tell us about your early days?Which bands have influenced you? Early influences for me is a bit of all my favourites. AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Dio, Thin Lizzy. Jeff loves all the above but he's fav would be RUSH. John's fav is KISS & Paul would be Van Halen. 💿 From THE WARRIOR to THE NEW HORIZON DAWNS..35 years defending the best British Hard n'Heavy tradition..Do you see a bright future for our loved music or passion for NWOBHM is only love for somethin “vintage"? A bright future for traditional Metal & Rock? Ronnie James Dio sang 'long live Rock & roll' so I don't think it will ever die. 💿 The real “news” in music industry is the return of vinyl and cassette tape. What’s your feeling about these classic format and the current music “business”? I love the fact that you can get stuff on vinyl but really I don't think people are going to buy LPs unless you're a collector with money! & as for tapes I just think it's pointless. The music industry are getting what they deserve too long controlling everything, ripping bands off. Things are much easier to get your music out there. 💿 Can you tell us somethin’ about your next live projects? Are scheduled any gigs? We are doing a french festival with Spirit & Gang on 6th April in France. We are trying to get some shows sorted in South America with a promoter. But hopefully festivals at the end of the year & possibly our own festival Metalwave this year at the The Underworld Camden in London. Bands to be announced. 💿Thank you so much for your time! See you soon on Hardrockheavymetal! Cheers Thanks & all the best.
