Two parts ballsy females and one part fantasy geek, This Is Music's London metal three piece Invasion are set to release their debut album later this year. Following their debut single release at the beginning of the month, we had a quick chat with guitarist Marek about metal dedication.

So Marek, how would you summarise Invasion's musical output?

Myself and the drummer are just trying to be as heavy as we can with our limited musical tools! We just love heaviness, we pretty much exclusively listen to metal.

What are your shows like?

Despite our interest and dedication to metal, we find it quite hard to break into that scene. We tend to get more ‘hipster’ shows but we find it so much better when we’re playing to metal kids.

Trend frustration? Naughty Marek! Invasion guitarist depcited next to the window he broke at their show the previous night at the old blue last

So what would be your dream show?

We supported The Sword last year and that was a dream! We hung out with them recently and they took us to see Metallica.

The new video for your single is insane! Who produced it?

This guy called Hans Lo, he's super nice and recently graduated from Camberwell. We wanted something fantasy and occult themed and he compiled us the video out of film clips.
