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?
Its our first two demos remastered along with 5 new ones, including a cover of Motorhead's Iron Fist. We are stoked to have it all in one place. Any new or old fan can find everything Angerhead has done in one place, on the album.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Metal, Thrash, Punk..... I think it sounds in the vein of Hardcore, with maybe a little Pantera/Megadeth influences thrown in.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
We recorded most of it with Juan Urteaga. He knows metal inside and out having worked with Testament, Exodus and Machine Head. Interesting stories? Not many. Just hard work to achieve a cohesive finished product that is strong from start to end.
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?
We have a awesome guy Bryon Stikky Tips who does it. He has been with us from the beginning. He took the name Angerhead and started coming up with the guy on the record and different variations and themes for our name. We just choose what we like which is pretty much everything he comes up with haha. Our lyrics are pretty much our thoughts on current events or society and what we dislike or don't agree with. Unfortunately and fortunately, there is a lot to write about!
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We just want our music out there and heard by as many metal fans as we can. At the end of the day, we just want to be respected by our peers and fans. That's it. No rock star dreamers in our band.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
I believe 1000 were pressed but can be duplicated very quickly thru Sony. Its a straight cd disc, no frills. We didn't want any issues with playback or video crap like that. If the music store your in throughout the world doesn't have it, they should be able to get it very quickly thru Sony's massive Distrobution network.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
Interviews like this. We have review and ads in 20-30 magazines in Europe. We also are being played all over the world on internet radio. And word of mouth doesn't hurt either.
Where can we order it from?
ITUNES, EBAY, VIOLENT CREEK RECORDS!!!
