Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?
We are a tight knitted group of childhood friends, that have been playing together for a long time. Also in another band where we played other instruments as we do now. We have not been playing in other bands separately, but we have had other musicians in our bands.
Why did you pick your band name?
To be honest, we had not researched a lot on the name other than the meaning of it, so we ended up discovering that we were not alone. But we don’t care, it’s not about the name, it’s about the music. Some have made fun of it, so we decided to stick with it.
How did you form?
As mentioned earlier, we have had other minor projects where we learned what it meant to be creative as a team.
We started out just my brother and I with the idea of making brutal death metal, where our old friend joined up later on.
Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?
Death, thrash and black metal is deep rooted in our preferences. It felt natural to play the music we love to listen to.
What can you tell us about your latest record?
It was a long and important process to create our first full length album, we learned a lot and have readjusted our priorities. However, we are very much reinvigorated and still have our ambitions.
The record itself is a mark to solidify our presence in the metal universe.
What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?
We hope to hear that people enjoy our music. We did receive mixed reviews that were both disheartening and encouraging at the same time. It felt that we were expected to reinvent the genre, and some were disappointed that we just did the same as most other bands. But we were very pleased with the good things that were said about us.
Are you going to make some world tour in the future?
Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe?
I think it depends on the band. I imagine it would strain the relationships in the band. But, of course, if you have the ambitions, you should use the resources.
What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?
A strong network, and a lot of money.
Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?
There are 3 main problems in a scene without money. First is that the instruments are not free. Second is that the practicing and perfecting the skills to use the instruments are not free either. Lastly, the time in the studio to record is also not free. But the idea is a fun thought to entertain and I think you’d have to, as we have, sacrifice a little for the cost of exposure.
What do you think about online music sharing?
In our digital age, I think it’s necessary to utilize whatever tools you are presented with.
Do you ever give your music away for free?
Yes, but we’d prefer not to.
As stated earlier, some sacrifices are necessary.
Who are your musical influences?
It’s hard to be specific, as our influences are from many sources. But we mainly draw them from death, thrash and black metal.
Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?
Our ambitions have never really been to be famous at all, though a little fame would not hurt as our music would reach farther.
Do you have a formal music education?
No. All our experiences are from school plays and are also self taught.
Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?
It’s important to support the local underground scene, the more support the more noise. But also support internationally. Buy the product. Our survival depends on you.
How do you balance your music with other obligations mate, children, job?
Dedication to it all, and a good prioritization.
How do you handle mistakes during a performance?
Suck it up, pretend it never happen and get back into the fray.
Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs?
Preparation never hurts, planning and planning and planning. But in the end, I do not think that it is possible to avoid them completely.
Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?
Yes, very. I think it is natural to get nervous. But it’s important that it doesn’t inhibit the performance.
A new album and a hell of a lot of gigs!
Then we take over the world… or not.
