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 new release "Al Insane the (Re) Birth of Abderrahmane" was released the 5th of august 2014 through the Us label Horror Pain Gore Death Productions it is brutal, blistering Death Metal that features intense speed and supreme technicality. Native melodies complement the crushing barbarity on this 10 tracks monster that is full of sick blast beats, massive guitar riffs, gravity blasts and huge production. The song “Al Intissar” is an hymn to victory and all against those fuckin’ losers who complain all day long without doing anything from their lives. Move your ass fucking assholes! "Voices revealed" is inspired from the memories of Phillip Garrido a serial killer, Hypnose is a message to all our governors in the planet ! Am I in hell? is a question that every one asked at least one time in his life, Kalimet essir is a tribute to our Martyrs, Black hands is about the difference between the rich and poors , “Hillal”, has a more philosophical concept and it is about the interaction of the human with the nature and Mizmar talks about the human pleasures!
For a first full length, yes we are very satisfied!
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
The sound of "Al insane...The (Re) Birth of Abderrahmane" is unique because it is melodic and brutal in the same time, it is also modern and old school with some ethnic melodies (not that much)!
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
In January 2013 we started to record drums, two month later we started the recording of bass and guitars. The vocals were recorded in august 2013 just before our first tour.
After that I was going to mix and master the album, but it was difficult to find a suitable sound for our music which was the most arduous part of the recording process, so we decided to search for a producer, and the time to find someone for that we were in December 2013. The album was mixed and mastered by Ivan from Anthropocide studio from Belarus. He did a great job, this guy is very patient and talented! and the album was finalized in march 2014.
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 artwork was made by Kaamos Illustration (Hypocrisy, Pain) from Finland. The topics of the lyrics are about the insanity of human, and in the cover artwork we can see an man emit lightning, and those lightning represent the insanity of the human!
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
The band's aim is to make shows all around the world, spreading the name of the band everywhere and to improve our musicianship and our way to compose music!
