Interview with Metal Factory

Interview with Metal Factory

Today, we sat down with Pavlina and Zuzana of Metal Factory to talk their inspiration to compose music, advice for musicians and much more! Be sure to check out their band Metal Factory music below on Spotify after the interview!


What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your

Pavlina Mochova: For me it is the creation of texts metaphorically transformed from life situations (for example tracks Dirty Game or Immortal Combat), otherwise I enjoy war lyrics (Defeat all) but also thoughtful lyrics (such as Conpunction).

Zuzana Batkova: It depends on my current mood while composing but mostly yes… I use a lot from life that I observe around me and around my loved ones.

What type of music did you listen to growing up?

Pavlina: At the age of six, I started playing classical music, when I started playing the piano, it gradually formed through hard rock, soundtracks from big movies, through metal. So this kind of music is closest to me, which we also create with the band Metal factory, I will find in it everything I would identify with myself.

Zuzana: Oh my… 🙂 Of course I started with music that my older brother came with, but soon enough I started to explore music on my own. I remember the crazy times of listening to mainstream, RNB and even Hip hop. I found my passion for hard & hevay music in high school and I must say I like modern style and modern sound but also really appreciate very much the truth and energy that can be found 20th century rock music. I found my way to this style with no special guidence, it just came to me and I am glad it happened

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?

Pavlina: Not hero but heroES. Many of them are among us in our ordinary lives. People who take care of the disabled and people in wheelchairs, such people are, in my opinion, considered real heroism today.

Zuzana: I grew up on action movies with Arnold, Stallone and Jean-Claude van Damme, so I had a lot of heroes around who saved the world today and every day. But for me, clever female characters like Sam Carter or Pippi longstocking have always been more interesting.


If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

Pavlina: I don’t even want to imagine this 🙂

Zuzana: I can’t imagine my life completely without music, so I guess I would be at least a passionate listener and would be more creative in other fields that I also like such as board games.

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create

Pavlina: Sometimes an idea is not enough, but when a couple of beers are added to it, it often results in something interesting that, after making weekly and monthly changes, starts to make sense. It depends on what percentage is beer.

And sometimes it’s enough for someone to pi*s you off at work 🙂

Zuzana: It’s OK to know your boundaries but don’t be afraid or too shy and trust your instincts. You should never do anything just because someone tells you to do it without feeling it.
