Why is the song
"Revolution" not included on their self-titled album?
According to the band, the song is not included because they think
"people take things too literally".
How can you
describe the band's music?
It's heavy, atmospheric, highly textured and a bit dark with soaring
and hypnotic vocals. Most music sites and magazines have already
branded their music as "space-rock" and compared them to
bands like Tool, Pink Floyd, etc.
Has Jared Leto
given up acting for the sake of the band?
No. In fact, you can catch him in his latest movie "Panic
Room" which I recommend seeing if you haven't already.
What are the
birthdates of the band members?
Right now we only know Jared's birth date which is December 26,
Where are 30
Seconds To Mars from?
Where do you think they're from? The band is from CA, Jared and Shannon are
from Bossier City, Louisiana.
I heard that 30STM
were a 5-member band, is it true?
Yes, guitarist Kevin Drake was kicked out of the band in June/July
2002 due to a controversial issues.
Where does the
song inspiration come from?
Jared: "Everything on this album is about real human
experience. That is the single most inspiring source for us, the
human struggle. Lyrically, it's a very personal album that sometimes
uses otherworldly elements and/or conceptual ideas to illustrate a
truthful personal situation."
I've found some
songs on the net which are not on the debut CD, are they rare or
Some of the songs on the debut CD had different names before the CD
was finalized. These are not demos or rare tracks. The songs are
still the same even though their names were changed. There is one
track that didn't make it on the album. It is called Revolution. You
can download it from this site in the audio section. Here's a list of the songs
and their old names,
Fallen = Jupiter
Oblivion = The Reckoning
Year Zero = Hero
What were their
Jared mentioned Pink Floyd, The Cure, Bjork, Rush,
The Who and Depeche Mode.
It's a military term. Echelon means "waves, or to attack in
waves, it was used by Napoleon during the Napoleanic wars. The term
was to attack 'En Echelon', in waves. So, Echelon means waves, which
would make sense in the song "Echelon" when the song goes
"What's with the fascination with the Echelon".
What's the meaning
of "Der Kopf des Schweins"?
You'll find a video at the official site which is called this
way. "Der Kopf des Schweins" is German and means "the
head of the pig".
Another official site video. Mokushiroku is a Japanese word
and means "Apocalypse".
What does the
phrase "Provehito In Altum" mean?
"Provehito In Altum" is a Latin metaphor and can be
translated in three different ways:
"March on into higher grounds"
"Launch forth into higher grounds"
"Launch forth into the deep"
Do Deadsy and 30
Seconds to Mars hate each other?
It has been noted by various members of the echelon that Peter
Exeter Blue I, the lead singer of Deadsy, has made derogatory
statements about 30STM to them. It is also known that in the demo
for 93 Million Miles the lyrics state, "It's like a Deadsy
song. Pretty but somethings always wrong. Show me a secret Mason
sign". Deadsy use masonic symbols and so this could be
considered mocking them. Exeter has been known to say that 30
Seconds to Mars ripped everything off from them. They both use
symbols, their sound is similar, even down to the synthesizers they
use, and they both dress the same. 30 Seconds to Mars has something
that Deadsy doesn't. They have created a sound that is filled with
so much depth and mystery that it will undoubtedly become timeless.
Deadsy, however, is just another band. Exeter has posted on his
website's message board that he and Jared are friends. Whether
this is true or not remains to be seen. But as of right now, there
seems to be a rivalry not only between the bands, but between
Echelon forces and Disciples of Exeter.
What do the
The four mysterious glyphics have two different meanings as far as I
understand. The first explanation is that they symbolize each of the
four terrestrial planets. The first symbol is two intertwined
"M's" which could stand for Mercury. The second symbol
looks like it is rotating in the opposite direction and Venus
rotates in the opposite direction of all the terrestrial planets.
The third symbol is the roman numeral three which stands for Earth,
the third planet from the sun. The fourth symbol is Mars. The two
dots represent both of Mars's moons Phobos and Deimos.
The second explanation is that they stand for the bands name. The
first symbol is two intertwined threes representing 30. The second
symbol is rotating in the opposite direction, almost as if it is
counting down which symbolizes seconds. The third symbol is three
vertical lines, but if you look in between them you get the roman
numeral two which stands for to. The last symbol represents Mars
once again, with its two moons Phobos and Deimos.
Note: The band has not officially commented on the glyphics
and therefore these explanations could be wrong. They have, however,
said that they represent different elements in the band. An official
statement from them is expected soon.
