When your band was created?
We Started off as a four piece in October 2012
What the style do you play?
We are a mix of Blackened and Brutal Death metal
How could you describe your music by several words?
Fast, Brutal, Technical.
What is the main theme of your lyrics?
The main theme of our lyrical content revolves around the downfall of society and religion. There also is somewhat of a story line involving the priest on our front cover who is a representation of Albert Fish.
What would you like to achieve with the band activity?
We have plenty of goals we wish to achieve as a band. To start off obviously is growing our fan base around the world. Fans are everything in our kind of music without support a band is nothing. On top of that we wish to tour in support of our music to hopefully earn respect in the Metal world as a hard working band and getting on a good booking agency to get us on bigger tours. Ultimately putting out good music and our careers as musicians is all we care about.
How many gigs you have played so far and maybe you visit another countries with concerts?
Since we have started we have played close to 110 gigs since we have started. We plan on doing at least 100 shows in 2015.
Is there anything very important about your band what SHOULD know fans and labels?
We are currently working on new material for a second album, We are planning on recording at Belle City Sound with Chris Wisco who has recorded bands and worked with labels such as Origin, Michael Angelo Batio, Gorgasm, Lazarus A.D., Dirge within, Jungle rot, Metal blade records, The end records, Napalm records and many others. We also have opened up main stage for national and regional band such as Vital Remains, Allegaeon, Putrid Pile, Sabaton, Rings of Saturn, Black tusk, Arsonists get all the girls, Seeker, Beyond the shore, Anagnorisis, Micawber, Tyranny enthroned.
What the formats you would like to see your releases, CD, Vinyl, Tape…? And how do you see future of physical releases?
We want our albums to be released on Cd, Vinyl, Digital anything that is popular and sells.
When you will get label deal, would you like to help to the label with promotion from your side, or you want label do all without your help?
This is a subject that needs to be talked about more often. Being in a band is like a business if you want to succeed you have to invest money into your product like any other business would if you wish to be successful. A problem with a lot of newer bands is that people are under the impression that Records companies can just take chances and sign random bands and hand out record deals just because they sound good. Every now and then a band does get lucky but now and days you need to build your fan base first and show that you have busted your ass touring and putting out solid releases before they even put a thought into your band. Due to downloading records don’t sell like they use to making it hard for labels to keep putting out new bands and new music just one bad move can bankrupt a label these days. So would we pay to promote ourselves with label help? The answer to that question is yes absolutely.
What’s your reaction towards negative opinions about your music?
We don’t have any reactions to bad comments. Of course we will take constructive criticism that how you grow as a band or in general. We all live and work our jobs so that we can keep playing music and perform live nothing else matters. You can’t please everyone
And last question, how do you like our webzine, do you have some remarks towards its look or functionality?
The webzine is looking great. What you guys do for bands is amazing. Cheers to a great 2015. \m/
