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?
Lost To Eternity is a 3-track demo. Lyrically it's about someones life struggles, and ultimately their death. A lot of the demo is describing the process of their death. The song Lost To Eternity is the first song I wrote for the demo, it captures the overall tone of the demo well. It starts off angry, it ends melodic and transitions into Moonlit Passageway, which is the longest song on the demo, around 9 minutes. Moonlit Passageway starts off slow and epic, almost doom-like, and eventually becomes fast and melodic, similar to the first track. The final track is Soul's Whisper, which starts acoustic with an Opeth-like riff and whispered vocals, it ends with a doom-metal style melodic riff. Overall I am happy with the demo, it was a good way to test the waters with Feign's sound.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
I'd call it atmospheric black metal, maybe melodic black metal, it can be put in a genre but it has a hard time staying in one genre over the course of the demo. Some parts are very doom sounding, some are very black or melodeath sounding. I think that a lot of metalheads have heard this sound before, but not done in this fashion. It definitely has a unique element to it.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
It was recorded in my bedroom, it took me around 4 days to a week. I can't remember too well, it was all a blur! Not a whole lot of stories, other then the fact that my neighbors all thought I was dying. That's always a fun one to explain to the cops.
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?
The cover art is slightly boring but it does capture the atmosphere pretty well. It does link to the lyrics a bit, in the fact that they are both about space and the cosmos. That's about as far as they relate, though. On the full-length album I will get a much better cover!
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
I would love to gain more fans and followers, and a good following for the debut full length album coming out in the next month or so. That is as far as I am thinking at the moment!
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
There will be physical copies soon, I promise! Other then that it is only digital right now, unfortunately. It is "name your own price" on bandcamp.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
I will promote it through The Metal Detector because he is awesome! I may also be signing to a label, maybe playing shows if I can find other members. I will be promoting it through any means possible, but mostly through the internet because that is all I can do right now.
Where can we order it from?
Bandcamp is your best bet right now.
Thank you for the interview!
