Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?
Hi there. Our band name is Indignity and we play brutal death metal. Most of us played in various bands before, and we hope we are rather experienced musicians. Well at least we pretend to (laugh). Kilas- our vocalist is fresh blood, doing quick progress under our wings.
Why did you pick your band name? How did you form? Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?
Name of the band came up rather randomly, it sounded good, so it stayed. Squad formed back in 2014. Miras and Tarki inspired by technical, brutal death metal, and more extreme forms of music, decided to create something new. Shortly after Sesil joined them as bassist. In the same year, they recorded a demo, for it would help them find aproper voice. In 2015 Kilas joined in, felt the climate, and did some rehearsals with us, and the squad was completed.
Playstyle is a matter of what we individually like, listen the most, etc.
It’s a great variety of artists, also non extream. Turns up we like brutal genres the most of all! (laugh)
What can you tell us about your latest record?
Our last record – Realm of Dissociation is our first full lenght album and a perfect occasion to get in sync with eachother as a band. The music has evolved since our first recording- Decrepitude (2015). We have added some grinding and slamming groves here and there. Kilas once again did a great job with his deepthroat haha. It was pretty good made and we are quite proud of quality level it represents. The label responsible for releasing the album is Slip Trick records.
What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?
At the beginning we had no idea of what to expect. It was released some time (a few months) after the recordings, so we were kinda, chilled out with it. All in all, the feedback we get is favorable among maniacs, people which see our gigs, buy cd’s and merch. We fell their support, and it’s great! Very motivating. Some reviews show up sometimes, and mostly are quite positive. We tried to do our best, as always, and it comes out that we did a piece of really solid work.
Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?
We are still planning concerts abroad and it goes so well that we have occasion to play farther away from home. Playing tours around the world is in whole amatter of time, commitment, and work put in our band, and yourself. Playing gigs everywhere is possible for everyone but it takes a lot of money, time and commitment to give.
Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?
Let’s be honest we are living in capitalistic world dominated by money. Promoting concerts, the band, sometimes paying for a good show, fuel for us – someone has to pay for that. Not mentioning the promotion done in the social medias, practically all the time. Music in this times becomes a business that you must keep an eye on to achieve something. But of course we believe in the idea not in dollars haha.
What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?
Sharing music online is something that we can’t stop and it is no sense to fight with. We try to do it fair, and sharing music free is inevitable and we hope that our fans will support us by buying our merchandise that we put a lot of work in. It’s very important that people attend to shows, it helps bands to progress. Let’s meet in the pit, and at the bar! Remember, support metal and underground scene!
Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?
It’s a whole variety of artists. Most of Inspiration comes from brutal or technical death metal bands like Decapitated, Archspire, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, a lot of grind and slamming scene, death metal etc. Who knows? Maybe one day we will be known as they are? We have to aim high but still be realistic. 😉
Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?
We don’t have proper music education, mostly selflearning, and some teachers. Yeah, education is important, but some talent, and 99% hard work are the key. Knowledge that we have is more matter of passion and interest in music. It’s very important and I would say that more important than finished schools.
How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?
Just like that (laught). You can find time for everything if you want to achieve someting and progress with your passions.
How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?
Mostly there’s no time to focous on common mistakes on stage. But every after every performance we try to analize what we can do better and try to put this in life.
What’s next? Thank you!
We start working on new songs, some ideas are already being played. We are planning the 2018 gig calendar, some shows are booked, and more to come very quick.
Thanks for the interview!
