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’re extremely happy with our new release. It’s called “The Art of Vengeance” and it has 12 tracks, 11 new tracks and 1 cover version of the song “Lightless” from HEADHUNTER DC. For the first time we’ve worked with a producer and it seems like we mad the right choice. Marco Donida did the artwork and we think it’s awesome! It’s our 2nd release thru Cogumelo/Grey Haze and we’re extremely happy with the way things are working. I believe it’s our strongest release up to date. The new album has more diversity if compared to our previous releases.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
We’re not the inventors of the wheel or we don’t pretend to be the goriest or the fastest band on earth. We just want to keep the wheel turning and we only do what we like and what pleases us. We don’t like to be classified/labeled into one specific style of music, once we have several distinct influences and we have tracks that are more Death Metal, others that are more Thrash Metal, even some Black Metal or Grind core you can hear in our music. We’re a hard working band that does an honest job and play our music for the ones that like 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?
Like our previous release we have travelled to Rio de Janeiro to record. We recorded in 10 days and it was again mixed and mastered in Italy by Alex Azzali, which on this album also did the producer job. The most interesting story from the recording of our latest album is that for the first time we had to use ‘click’ (metronome) and also for the first time we had a producer working with us. So, for us, it was a totally new experience.
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?
Yes, there’s definitively a link between the artwork and our music/lyrics. We always try to have a link on that, in all our albums. It wasn’t different with the newest one. Our lyrics are always about the occult, Satanism, war and the harsh reality of our daily lives.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
For us success is being an active band. Being able to tour and release materials constantly is the success for us. We’re forever underground and we do it for passion and not for fashion. Extreme music will never be mainstream or for everyone. We always want to surpass our releases and ourselves. We want to evolve while remaining true to our proposal.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
Our releases are mainly in the CD format but we always try to do something special for our fans. On this new release, we included a bonus DVD on the 1stpressing (1000 copies). Some of our releases are in LP format as well. Our new album came out in June 2014 and so far we have sold around 2000 copies of it.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
We believe the best promotion is touring, so we’re constantly on tour. Besides that, our labels do a great job and also have a good distribution, so I think we’re on the right path.
