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?
We released our debut „The War Is On“ in February under the Grom Records label, and we are really proud of it. It contains 10 songs, and it represents the work we have done for the last 4 years since some of the songs were written at our beginnings. Our lyrics are rebellious, and the music is melodic, catchy and filled with raw energy. We can say that we are pretty happy with it, but we are sure that our sound will develop and that it will be better in the future.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
It is melodic death metal. It sounds similar to Arch Enemy and Kreator at some points but we believe it to be more raw and less polished.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
Actually we recorded all the instruments for just 5 days and additional 15 days for vocals since our singer needed the breaks in order not to damage her voice. We had a lot of fun while recording since the producer is our friend and most of the time we were making jokes and telling funny stories. There is no particular interesting story behind it apart from that we recorded most of the drums and guitars wearing pajamas because they are most comfortable.
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 is a photo done by Vladimir Milovanović and it represents a woman who awoke and is angry and trying to release herself from the things that are holding her back. We believe that it is in the correlation with the lyrics and the album name. Our lyrics mostly cover topics of injustice and corruption of the system we live in. We are aware that these topics are not new or innovative in any way but since the things are going downwards globally they are still relevant.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We expect to get as many gigs as we can and to spread the word about our album as wide as we can. Since the situation with the corona virus is really unpredictable, we are not able to make any specific plans about live performances. We had around 20 concerts scheduled for this year, and some of them were at festivals in Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria but we had to postpone or cancel them. Currently, we are trying to promote our album online as much as we can and to sketch some of the new material.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
Yes. It is released as a CD in 500 copies and in the form of cassette in only 50 copies and the Grom Records label. It is also released in a form of a vinyl under the Soul Peddler label in 300 copies. Which we believe is really good for a debut album. Additionally, you can listen to the album on all the digital streaming platforms.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
We were supposed to have a big promo concert in Belgrade in March, but it was postponed, but we are trying to promote our release online.
Where can we order it from?
You can order it from our Facebook page or by writing to our label Grom Records.
