Please tell us about the history of your band and its members. What have you released so far?
The band was founded in January 2001, we started musical path with following members: Erik - vocal, Gassi - guitar, Nagard - guitar, Ommurtag - drums. All the members had other projects before, viz. our metal-archives page. We recorded first demo "Created" in this formation at the Šopa studio in June 2001. This demo was self-released and send to local labels. After releasing this demo, guitarist Mille was replaced by guitarist Nagard. At the beginning of 2002 Flagin joined us as a bass and guitar player. In this new formation, we played a few concerts and wrote some new songs, which were recorded in the Šopa studio in the spring 2002. Subsequently a czech label Grodhaisn offered us releasing a full lenght debut album, where all material from the the demo and the 4 new songs were used. The CD was released at the end of 2002 under name „...Created...". After releasing the debut, we played some gigs and worked on new material. After guitarist Mille left the group, Flagin had to reduce his status from bass/guitar player to guitar only. Then, in spring 2004 the second full lenght album "Hell Unleashed" was recorded with this line-up: Erik - vocals, Gassi - guitar, Flagin - guitar, Ommurtag - drums. CD was released by Grodhaisn at the turn of the year (2004/2005). After some gigs a piece of work done we recorded our third album called "Dark Future" in December 2008 with the same line-up in the Šopa studio again. Then we spend almost two years by looking for the proper record label... The newest milestone in our history was signing a contract with Brutal Bands records (USA). BB released the CD "Dark Future" on the 25th June 2010. We are currently composing new material..
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We describe our style as 'South Moravian Dark Death Metal' but technicaly you can call it blackened death.
Between bands which had influenced us most counts Morbid Angel, Immolation, Incantation, Nile and similar groups.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
To listnen to old school death metal covered in pitch-dark atmosphere, to hear the darkness comming..
How were your releases received by the public/media?
Most of the reviewes are very positive, sometimes we are actually very surprised at the acceptance. We will set the list of all the reviews we find on our facebook page soon. However we are nameless band, the number of the reviews is not very high. We didn't have luck with the labels, they promote us very poor or didn't promote us at all. Most of the reception is from abroad, thanks for that!
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We didn't play a gig for 4 years now due to personal problems, problems with the line-up etc. We'd like to play again now but our great singer Erik is off now because of serious sickness and he can't perform at the moment. Currently we hope one of the supreme czech vocalists will help us until our original singer gets well.
Before we played with bands like Dying Fetus, Natron, Misanthrope or Krisiun.. It was also great to play in Prague all the time. And we specialy enjoyed the show at world famous Obscene Extreme festival or at Nuclear Storm...
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We definetely won't declare us the best band in the world or shout other self promoting clishé bullshits. Our music speaks for us and if anyone woul'd like to know anything about us it's nothing easier than emailing us! Furthermore thanks to you and one other webzine we have two recent english written interviews now and these information supply the basic info from metal-archives/myspace/facebook.. But the music itself and its message is the most important thing.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
In forthcoming future we want to finally perform some shows, not a tour, we don't have time to tour because of our jobs, but we definitely want to do several gigs. Aside from that we need to promote our last full-lenght 'Dark Future' because our label didin't do it and we finally found a guy who help us with that. Most recently we are completing our first video-clip for the song 'At War With Two Worlds' and we are composing new stuff as well, we still have a lot of ideas.
