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?
It’s an re-release of our EP called Trapped in a Nightmare, that we released ourselves last year. The label that took care of it is Thrashing Madness from Cracow, Poland. This time it’s gonna be a full-length album, enriched by 3 new, bonus tracks, that we’ve written and recorded this year. We’ re really happy, that this re-release took place. I think it will be a great promotion of our music, and that this material deserved it. This time there will be no cardsleeves and no CDrs, but fully professional edition with booklet and jewelcase.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
It’s classic, aggressive thrash metal in the vein of Slayer or Sadus, but with some melodic, heavy sequences in a few tracks, inspired by bands as Mercyful Fate or Forbidden. It’s not an discovery of America, but as we know, it’s really hard to be original these days, we’re working on it though. I can ensure you, that you won’t find and nu-core lame stuff here, so the undeground, classic metal fans won’t be dissapointed, and on the Trapped in a Nightmare should find something for themselves .
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
Material from the EP was recordes in Sounds Great Promotion Studio in Gdynia, Poland. It took about three full days to record all six tracks, and about a month for mix/mastering. It was a great cooperation worth every money spent on it, we really recommend this studio. Bonus tracks were recorded in Studio nr 4 in Gdynia, record process of this three tracks took about 2 days, and mix and mastering about 3 weeks.
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?
Cover artwork was made by Mario Lopez from Guatemala, we strongly recommend this guy, he’s really talented, and he combine his talent with the spirit of classic, 80s metal artworks. Drawing fits the lyrics and the music, as well as the whole title of the album. And about the title and the lyrics… Trapped in a Nightmare – cause we’re living in a nightmare man. Lyrics are about serial killers, death, pain, mental ilness, oppression, all this stuff that we have to deal with living our lives. Pure naturalism!
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
We’re expecting that this release will promote our music around the world, so we can gain new fans, be more recognizable, and then make our way to the higher level of metal music industry. We’re aiming to record next album as soon as possible, release it with a label and make European tour, playing as many gigs as it is possible.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The format is CD, yet. First pressing is 500 copies, and then there will be probably another one - also 500 copies.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
Well, for example, we’re promoting it right now haha. We’re trying to promote our album in metal magazines and webzines, smaller and bigger, by sending promos and press packages. We’re looking for the pages like yours through the internet and then trying to contact. That’s how we’ve found Pest Webzine. Thanks for the oportunity to say a few words about our album!
