HCM Interviews Baron Von Hades

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Baron Von Hades. An old friend of mine gave me the nickname “Hades” because I reminded him of the Greek God, Hades. Apparently, his personalty matched with mine, but he also liked to give all his friends nicknames of Greek Gods so who knows! I quite liked the name so I stuck with it and decided to add “Baron Von” to the front of the name to stand out more. plus, I think it sounds a LOT more cooler and more interesting.

HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Baron Von Hades. I always thought I wanted to be a video game designer back in school, but near the end of the school years I released that I always listened and went back to music, I didn’t realize that I had a passion for producing music, rapping and singing until I was around 15, maybe 16. Since then I fully embraced the music and just started getting into producing and recording. The more tracks I recorded the better I got and the more I wanted to keep going.

HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Baron Von Hades. I always loved artists who would always look SO different compared to regular artists, as if they’re going against what everyone else does. Bands like Slipknot and Nirvana. Rappers and singers like The Weeknd, Post Malone, and Billie Eilish. they would always stand out the most and go with the look THEY wanted. That’s why I always go for a more Goth/Emo look because compared to a lot of artists in my area, they tend to look the same wearing all white with jewelry on them or just look like a basic person you’d see in the street. I want to stand out, not only music-wise but fashion and looks-wise.

HCM. On your upcoming release… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Baron Von Hades. My upcoming single, “Wouldn’t You Like To Know” is a short and catchy trap song, which I produced myself. I was playing on my guitar one day and made a little melody, and thought “this would go great with some trap beats and bass”, so I quickly started to produce the track, record the vocals, and mix everything up together. This song was inspired by the great Juice Wrld “Hate Me”. loved his vocals and the track and I wanted to make something slightly similar. But this isn’t the only project I’m doing, I release a new track every month so it’ll definitely be worthwhile to keep up to date with what I do on Instagram. I might make your new favorite song! who knows? haha

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Baron Von Hades. I’d like to thank my friends who would listen to my music and give me their most HARSH opinion! They would always tell me the truth if a track was horrible or not, thus, help me improve as an artist and a producer.
