One Question Interviews: Agrimonia

Pontus (Agrimonia)

SPB: What makes death metal - or metal in general - so prevalent in Sweden?

Pontus: I think there is a huge music interest in general in Sweden. This might have to do with that it’s easy to pick up and learn an instrument at an early age thanks to Sweden’s community music school, so many people who maybe otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to play an instrument can start out. Also, when there’s lots of people playing--good bands, good shows all the time--I guess people get inspired. Creativitiy feeds creativity. Sweden has a very small population which also might help breaking down boundaries between different scenes and such. Clubs and showspaces are open for many kinds of music. So metal, including other underground music, has had a really good starting point in Sweden, I think.
