Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Hell`o! The band Spatial was born in 2010 and it was founded by three current members, both of the guitarists Damian (Kubek) and Tomek (Jimi), and the drummer Wojtek (Bocian). At that time we were starting to shape our vision and compose our first songs. In the meantime we were also looking for a bass player and a vocalist to complete the line-up.
The bands that have inspired us that time (as well as now), were a totally fucked up blend of all known metal genres. It doesn`t make any sense to mention all those names. We don`t have enough time and room for that:-). To name only a few of them: some of us are into modern metal like Totem, some worship the technical school of Children of Bodom, some listen to the Swedish melodic death metal crushers like e.g. Amon Amarth, finally others explore the black metal abyss, poisoning their minds with venom spreaded by hordes like Nordvrede, Plaga or Angantyr. So! You can see, that our name is quite matching to the style that we are working on. Each one of us smuggles his own influences into the band and with a touch of black magic it all turns into Spatial music. I reveal that the other band members are Marek (Premier), who is responsible for the low tones devastation and Marek (Strzyga), our charismatic vocalist.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We call it Spatial Metal, but You can also name it Doom, Dark, Melodic Death Metal.
If we are under compulsion to name some bands, the biggest influence were: old Tristania, Moonspell, Dimmu Borgir, Machine Head, Gyvata, and many, many underground Black Metal Bands (too many to name them all). As we have said... different bands, different genres.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Why? Because we are thinking, that we have created quite unusual, dark and gloomy, but yet melodic stuff. This heavy atmosphere assumes many different forms, well known to all Metal maniacs. We believe that Everyone should find something interesting for him in our music. If not... Well, we won`t cry anyway.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
Until now, we have released one demo - "Empire", and we did it all alone. The “Empire”; demo obtained dozen or more complimentary reviews in different zines/web zines. After the demo was sold out, we have decided to re-master it a little and enclose this stuff in the debut album.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yeah!!! Above all, the Spatial horde is a machine. A machine build to destroy and to molest people minds, during as many, as only possible live shows. That`s our main mission Ha Ha. We work really intensely as for our modest possibilities. We have played several dozen club gigs and also some bigger festivals. We were so lucky that we had the opportunity to support such big names as: Hate, Devilish Impressions, Dark End(Ita), Coprolith (Fin) and many other well- or less-known bands from
Poland and abroad. You can find more infos about our gigs on our website www.spatialofficial.pl
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are working very hard and we`re ready to sacrifice a lot to reach our goals. We are really stubborn and consistent in that what we are doing. We don`t look on others, just going on with our own, playing what we really feel. If anyone is interested in cooperation with our band; we invite!
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Hmm, plans are huge, as always Ha Ha. For sure recording of our second album, maybe in autumn 2015 or so. Organization of the fourth edition of “Niech Cisza Milczy Moto-Rock-Metal Festival”, which is a free open air fest, that we are originators and co-organizers of. We are also going to make some new video that will promote the new album. But our biggest plan or rather dream is to go on a few-week tour with some fucking great band!
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
