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?
I am so happy with the new release. I am sure that this is the best AlogiA album. It is short and sweet. And I love every moment of it.
Almagest - Intrumental intro, very progressive and technical, with some cool harmonies. I always loved the albums that start this way. 
Callis Ad Astra - Very atmospheric song with mystical lyrics. Very catchy and progressive at the same time. Sounds like Kamelot wearing Balkan shoes.
Galija - Very melodic, fast power metal song. I am sure that you'll continue with singing the chorus after it finishes. I also love the guest vocals of my she-friend Andjela Isic.
Vreme je - For all neoclassical freaks. Great solo of Miroslav. For strato/fans.
Elegia Balcanica - The first single. Very Balkanish. Nikola kicks ass with high vocals. I am so proud of Al Di Meola inspired solo parts and riffs. I think it was the great choice for the first single. If you want to check out AlogiA, check out this song first.
Lilith - My favourite on this album. I love these melodies, love the chorus very much and I think that this is the one of the best solos that I have composed. Also, one of the most catchy songs from my opus.
Inferno - Very aggressive and atmospheric at the same time. Good choice for metal heads.
U tisini - Simple and catchy. Once again, Nikola is kicking ass while singing the chorus.

How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sound like anything we might have heard before?
If you like progressive power metal, I sure that you will like AlogiA. I also think that we have a recognizable note which is a Balkan mark.

Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? 
We recorded it in the studio "Paradox" and that is the place where I have recorded and produced many  Serbian bands in the last decade. We started recording back in 2012, everything was finished in the middle of 2013, but we decided to put it out in September 2014, on Miner records.

What can you tell us about the cover artwork?
Artwork is done by Slobicus Doomicus. He is a great guy, he knows the music of the band for many years, he also understands the prog direction that we brought back, so according to it, he made the great artwork.

What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
The one and only aim is to compose and play the music we love and to be happy with it. The music industry is dead, nobody expects extra/mega huge halls anymore. Also, nobody expects to be a guitar hero. Guitar heroes are the part of the musical past. By making us happy, playing music gained the most important aim.

Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? 
The album was released on Cd and I think that it will probably be released on vinyl, too. Everything on Miner Records.

Where and how will you promote this new release?
We don't have big plans. But I must say that we have the best PR in the World, and her name is Paola.

Where can we order it from?
Find it on Miner records, or send the inbox message to AlogIA facebook official page.
