F.L.Y.-How did you meet up? 
C-Nathan and Al started off in a band called OVERTHROW, after a few years and a few member changes
it was Chad on bass, Chris and Al on guitar and Nathan on drums. We did that line up for about a 
year. The singer quit and Al took over on vocals we got Tyler filling in on guitar. We recorded a 
couple songs (thats why the vocals are diffrent on the Steadfast comp then on the CD). THat 
lasted for a couple of months the music wasn't coming together as planned so Al went back to 
guitar, Chris on vocals. It didn't sound like OVERTHROW so we killed all of those songs and started

F.L.Y.-What is the scene like down there in Florida?

of death metal influence.

F.L.Y.-What is the message of the band?

other mental or pysical  pollution.

F.L.Y.-(Hmm, Moshing Maggot Metal. Isnít that nice.)

F.L.Y.-What are your shows like?

I guess they were expecting HARDCORE.

F.L.Y.-How does Chalice feel about sXe and Veganism?
C.-We have no problems with being VEGAN Tyler is a vegan and the rest of us are vegetarians
(except Chad he's the only carcass eating carnivore). Far as STRAIGHTEDGE goes some of us are

C.-We are planning to tour in the summer with YETI and possibly SPITFIRE. Probably 
up north don't know exactly yet.

F.L.Y.-SO, what happens when Chalice breaks up? What will you guys do?

in a band called PETER PAN COMPLEX. Nathan's married, Chad is planning on getting married 
so who really knows what would happen if we broke up, probably start other bands or go on 
with life.

F.L.Y.-Are you all Christians?
C.-Yes we are all Christians.

C.-Because we all know and feel in our hearts that Jesus died for us and wihtout Him we 
would be nothing.

F.L.Y.-Arenít Christian bands just trying to push there beliefs on to other kids in the 
C.-We don't speak for all Christian bands just this one. We don't force anything on any-
one. We don't say much from the stage we let the music speak  for its self, but we do 
encourage people to talk to us after the show about what we believe. Thats the only way 
your going to get through to anyone. Not forcing things on people. Plus I thought being 
in Hardcore was about speaking what you believe,oh unless your a Christian.

F.L.Y.-If you could change anything in todays society what would it be and why?

F.L.Y.-Okay, that is about it, any last comments?
C.-Send us mail we like hearing from people and checkout SLEEPING BY THE RIVERSIDE and

CD'S from us. THANKS.
