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?
“Pleasure of Destruction” is the first debut album being the most serious job of our band over the years of its existence. We are pleased with how it sounds. Everything has been made at the highest level. We can say very briefly about the album as a whole: our music has incorporated the best of the Melodic Death Metal style i.e. the high-speed parts of the drums, the melodic, heavy and groove rhythms of the guitars, the attractive combination of scream and growl, the solo pretty tunes.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
As has been said earlier, it is Melodic Death Metal style. Maybe, it’s similar only in terms of the manner of execution of the style technique.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
The album was recorded at Zaporozhye Studio TA Production under the supervision of Anton Vorozhtsov (Hell:on and Ungrace guitarist).
The recording proceeded in a friendly atmosphere. Anton takes his work seriously. Thus, it didn’t take much time to record the material. The process was productive at all stages. We have gained a vast and invaluable experience because it was our first serious and extensive work.
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 executed by the Russian Studio “Project Mayhem”. The album artwork is the symbol of our immoral and enervated society. Thus, social problems destroying our society are well narrated in the Red Hills lyrics.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
The album exceeded our expectations. There are many positive reviews since the album was released. Currently, we are working at our own website and a debut clip in support of our album. You will be able to evaluate the fruits of our labours in the near future.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The material was released by the largest Eastern European label Metal Scrap Records in accordance with their standards. The material was released in the multiple formats. 1000 copies were pressed.
