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?
The new release is the debut ep album of Leave the Circus.
The music alongside with the lyrics is a whole part, which regards our concerns about the modern society we live into. It’s a loud message to the crowd, to start acting, and not following orders like sheep.. It’s kind of revolutionary in a way, and we like it! It disseminates passion and energy. Exactly what metal music is made for. We are extremely happy with what we have done in this ep cd.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
The truth is that what you are going to listen is something very interesting. We have gathered the best parts of the biggest metal scenes such as Scandinavian & American metal, and crafted something (at least) worth listening. The listener will find out soon, from the first track of the album.
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 worked with some of the best to bring Mindless Mass to life.
The recordings took place at 9800 Studios in Athens, and lasted for about two months.
Afterwards, the mixing process took place at Unreal Studioz, also in Athens. One of the best studios available, with great experience, having worked with many notable bands and musicians.
Finally, we did the mastering at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. One of the top studios global, having worked with bands such as Amon Amarth, Kreator, Soilwork, Opeth, Paradise Lost, Enslaved, Katatonia Witchcraft, (and the list goes on)
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?
Surely there is connection between them. The destroyed shack on the artwork, alongside with the circus behind it, represents the modern society. Represents the all those bad things some out here want to “feed” us, and with the lyrics we are trying to make this clear, and make the “mindless mass” wake up, and take actions.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We are willing to make the band’s name as big as possible, and in addition to spread our music as far as it can get.
We will achieve this through many live upcoming shows, and of course with a strong presence in internet and Social media. You will hear more from us soon!
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
This release will be distributed in digital format only, and later, (this year probably), we will cut physical copies. But for now, it is in digital format only.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
We will promote it global through internet and social media. Also, we expect our fans to come to our live shows, and listen to our music, to the core! They will not regret this.
Where can we order it from?
You can order Mindless Mass through iTunes, Amazon, and of course, through our label’s (Metal Scrap Records), official website.
