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?
About our EP Sledgehammer. It is divided on two parts - every song was recorded in english and ukrainan language. We are quite patriotic guys.
Middle-tempo groovy Hunter is thematically very simple song. It`s main hero is sexy concerned dude that goes hunting in the evening. Something like that.
Puncher is peppy song with recitative. It is about love too. About physical part of love to be more exact. Love in perforator tempo. Yes, nothing lovely is alien to us.
Sledgehammer is serious and quite melodic track about war. We are ukrainians and good know what it is unfortunately.
Red Light is playful melodic song with smell of MDM. You can here even clean vocals here! The song is about bikes and people who ride them. Our singer is one of such people. He lived specific life in the ranks of traditional MC for a few years so he knows what he singing about.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Everything always sounds like something another. Modern rock music has a huge history. Sure we rely on something before. It`s hard to tell what is like our sound. We are often being compared to Pantera what is pleasant and surprising for Pomsta because we don`t hear much of Pantera in our music.
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 recorded album on TOP SOUND Records in Kyiv already in 2013. It happend that title song Sladgehammer became prophetic. It transmitts the mood of that events that happened in our country. It is told that people went on barricades with this song in earplugs this winter!
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?
Artwork in album is very simple. We decided not to bother with pictures and slapped our logo on the cover. We very like our logo. It is conceptual, aggressive and perky - it corresponds to our music.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
Our EP Sledgehammer must declare us as much as it possible. So we pushed it to swim and wainting for profit.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
Our disc was released only in digital format so we can not speak about any copies. We printed a pair of hundred of discs and granted them to our listeners on concerts.
