Potion13

Your name: 
My name is Danielle Langlois.

Where are you from? 
Montreal, Quebec (The only french province in North America), Canada. So, I sing in french (my mother's tongue.) Now, if the way I write things seem a bit funny, you know why. Not  easy to write in a foreign language.

Name of band:
Potion13.

Who is in your band?
The band is: Danielle Langlois (vocals), Brian Harps (guitar), Nathalie Baril(bass), Simon-Pierre Dube(drums).

How would you describe yourselves?
Heavy metal/hard rock band. Good friends that share a passion together, having fun doing it!

Who are your main influences musically?
So many good bands in the metal scene. The four of us have different influence and the mix of all that gives us our essence. Personally I've learned to sing metal doing covers of Dio, Iron Maiden, Scorpion, Black Sabbath,... I guest it kind of stayed within me.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
The sky is the limit. But mostly doing shows, that's the best! We got a new album out this year. We wish to sell as much as possible to finance the next one. Being independent, we have to go with the flow. So far the sale have paid the cost of production by sales in our show, by putting the album in two Montreal stores that sell online too and we also opened an account on bandcamp so people can buy on line one song $1.00 or the album  "Le rock ça tue!" for $6.66. (The title of the album means Rock kill's).

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Opening for U.D.O. (original voice of Accept), David Ellefson (Megadeth), twice for Tim RIPPER Owens (ex-Judas Priest), Raven,... cause it was an honour to share the stage with these great performer. And it was nice to have the chance to talk with them  backstage. Makes many good memories!!
Also being played in more than 150 countries or the day we've reached 2,500,000 upload of our songs.  It's quite overwelming to have so many people, from all over the world, appreciating the music you created! 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Like a lot of musicians these day with the music business getting harder and harder. The moment we all wish we could forget is that moment when the alarm clock rings and you got to get up to go to your regular job that pays your bills... especially when you had a kick ass show the night before!!!

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
La mort . (death). It starts on a dark note, talking about how death is part of our life, how ugly or devastating it can  be... Never knowing how long we've got. And in the second part of the song it makes you realize that you should live to the fullest every day cause you never know when it will be the last. Enjoy your life as much as you can, while you can. That is what we do. Live for the moment!
