Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
New release is a collaboration between two musicians - me and Cryostasium (USA). Tracks were recorded together, for example, Cryostasium sent me track, and then I imposed drums or other instruments, then to him, then it is something, and so on. there were many versions of songs, probably 3-4 version of each song. it was hard to choose. psychedelic sound tracks, the idea was that this album - music box of a ghost-monster on the cover, which plies the vastness of space. they are awful. so that when an untrained person listens to it, it can get crazy.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Music is psychedelic black / doom metal / dark ambient. most similar to the early Cryostasium works, actually. may be, at super-fast Xasthur. Rather, it is a mix of all styles. I think we have a unique style, unlike the others. Although all the musicians think so, of course.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
Recorded here in Russia and in the United States, began to write in 2014, then was ordered and ready the coverart, the process was very long, I wanted to do everything faster, but we worked seriously (I hope). although some tracks may stand out, still somewhere my part of art was dominante, somewhere Cody. but in general, it sounds the same frantically.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
Monster on the mysterious matter background, imprinted on the cover (made by Mosa Eye), can be very useful in showing overall psychedelic atmosphere of a mysterious and unsolved space - the result of the symbiosis of two minds. No text, the music tells of deep matters as space, death, philosophy. Mainly used in the tracks of a fictional text or chants of a psycho in a madhouse. the rest - instrumentals. vocal in this case only one of instruments.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
Released for himself, we didn't catch the stars from the sky. just if anyone like it, can support. I do not think that many people appreciate, because the style is very strange. Of course, I would like to get a lot of fans who "feel" the music.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
500 CDs in 6-panel digipak. very beautiful artwork
Where and how will you promote this new release?
Mostly on their own, also Qabar PR helping.
Where can we order it from?
