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?
Our first album “Infidel” was preparing for a long time. Creating and recording material took away for almost a year. Songs from the debut album are united by the main musical idea. Create songs that will be unpredictable for the listeners.
Pride - a song about people and one of the most difficult feelings that arise in us. Man, as the legend goes, created in the image and likeness of God, which is characterized by all of our disadvantages including pride. That it becomes the cause of progress, wars, and achievements.
I Am Infidel - a song about a picture of a modern society, which is dominated by religion. Just how dangerous religious fanaticism.
With a smiling face - like the previous song I Am «Infidel», this track continues the theme of the dangers of religious fanaticism. The song tells the story of a terrorist attack in Mumbai, India. It is carried out on behalf of the story of armed fanatic who goes to death, and takes with him dozens of human lives. The song has exclusively descriptive sense. The band does not support extremism.
The God's Fault - straight and penetrative track with jazz music parts. The song follows the concept of the album in its diversity and changes of musical parts, as well as continues thematic line of the album.
Starlight - track turned out pretty unusual for us, both in the music, and in terms of semantic value. Practically, the song Starlight is the most good-natured of all of the songs on the album. It tells the story of millions years of existence of our universe and the pettiness of human sins and processes in the World.
Child Of Salvation - the song was an example of quite high speed Thrash Metal & Groove. Here’s, as in other songs, intertwine wide variety of music ways. It’s Thrash Metal and Groove Metal, as well as Southern Metal. Our love for the Blues Rock and country music can be seen in our other tracks.
Outro - a track that did not receive any specific name since its singularity. Our desire to create unusual music, which will be connected to everything, led to the appearance of such a final «Outro». It intertwines jazz-fusion, funk, striding bass and Groove Metal. Attentive listener can hear a lot of interesting here.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Music is difficult to describe. We're all fans of different musical genres. Our desire was to create music does not like modern trends. We tried to combine in music the best it seems to us the elements of the previous years. As a result, the songs harmoniously "coexist” jazz, country, blues, death metal, thrash / groove metal.
It is difficult to say whether there bands performing such combination everything with everything. Here comes to mind a band from Liverpool - Carcass and their innovative work in grindcore, death metal, death 'n' roll. But their musical evolution came from album to album. Our work is diverse within not just one album, but each song.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
All the material was recorded exclusively by our own forces, at a home studio. The situation with heavy music in Kazakhstan in general such that all the work you have to do by yourself. Not without the help of smart and sympathetic people. Otherwise the studio, radio and TV stations in Almaty run from this kind of music as from fire.
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 album cover was conceived as a logical continuation of the musical material. External graphical content must always conform to the music, the internal content. Cover generally reflects the pattern that we have described in the lyrics. Ruins, desolate lands, and skull - it is a logical result of the fact to what society is moving at this point of its existence.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
For us, the release of the album «Infidel» is step into the international arena. Desire to show that music can be creating different way. Not so how is now distributed in the world. Plus the ability to see the world, and to show yourself to the people, and make your investment to the music industry. Call your attention at contribution to music. We give every effort from our side for that. Compose an original and interesting material. The band currently busy recording its second album. Process goes well, a few songs ready. And most importantly, the band looking for its way to the German festival WACKEN OPEN AIR. This is problem number one for us! So we want to use every opportunity to take part in the festival in 2015. Certainly we need help in this matter.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
“Infidel” album was released exclusively in digital format. The current situation in the music industry imposes certain costs, with the release of the album on the media CD / DVD. And as in the era of information technology, access to any information, films, art, music, including ours, the most simplified.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
Our debut album is distributed by an international label Metal Scrap Records. Also no small role in the distribution of the album is played concerts that in the future we intend to give.
