Trip to Paradise are a pop-punk band that attracts attention and stays in memory for their love and passion for music. Elements of pop-punk, classic rock and catchy synth sounds unite to create this unique new mixture of tones and rock 'n roll.

Their sound is defined by the unique mixture of twin guitars, four different vocalists, viscous drums, rumbling base and an orchestra of synthesizers. Most of all, though, Trip To Paradise are four musicians from the Rhein-Neckar-Kreis in Germany who are absorbed in their music and always bring in an array of influences. Listening to them, you can feel that passion no matter whether they are performing live or on their debut record "Level One".

Of course, we decided to ask them a few questions about music and video games. Here's what they had to say...

What is your favorite video game soundtrack?

The main theme from Battlefield 1942, childhood memories.

Who's your favorite video game music composer?

Gustavo Santaolalla.

What’s your favorite video game?

Grand Theft Auto 5 and CS:GO.

What game inspired you to do music?

Call of Duty.

What video game are you currently playing?

CS:GO.

Would you ever like to write music for video games? What would it be like?

Definitely, it would be a mix between classic, epic string sounds and heavy guitars.

How important is music for video games / video games for music?


It is the soul of the game, just like with movies. Imagine watching Inception or Interstellar without Hans Zimmer!
