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?
The new band’s release called "The Lost World". Each track - a reflection on today's reality, the instability in the world, a person's behavior in a particular situation, his struggle with his demons and the world around them, which is crazy, etc. Musically, the work is a mixture of melody, speed and powerful death metal-riffs. You never can be happy with the final result for 100%. Of course after the completion of work and after some time, we have identified some points that would have done differently.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
As for the direction, our music is closer to the melodic death metal. So, of course you could find all this elements of our music somewhere separately, but question is could you find it somewhere together at the same time in this element's proportions? We guess no! we're just offer you to listen 'the last world' and answer to this question by yourself. You're know, it's just our point of view to music with a lot of speed, melodies and aggression.
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 last world’ was recorded in the studio Rock-Center Studio in Gomel, Belarus. Unfortunately due to problems in line-up of group, recording process took period from 2008 to 2013. Particularly any interesting moments during the recording didn’t happen. The only thing at the time of writing the material guitarists often quarreled among themselves. But in the end we all came to compromise.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topic of your lyrics?
The cover depicts a skull with a crown of bullets lying on the heath, and in the background the ruins of the city. Artwork emphasizes the historical context (the crown of the bullets as a rule by force) and in the same time shows that it leads to nowhere (the crown on the skull). Cover is linked with several songs that speak about the war and history.
If we’re talking specifically about each composition:
Wind of Freedom - a person renounces the old life and tries to create a new, permanent be fighting for their future.
Another Day - one day ends - another begins, but no one knows what will be a new day, and that he will bring to us.
The Understanding of Truth - a song about how important it is to choose the right path in life, and in consequence do not regret about life that has been lived in vain.
Eyes In The Eyes - man sees all around him in a distorted perception. He pushes himself from reality. Sees what he wants to see. Desiring a better and for good way, he doesn’t see dullness and dirt which he lives in.
Our Blood's On The Cross of War - one of the phrases "Blood on the Cross" - religious wars, as one of the milestones of history, in which a lot of people shed blood because of religious fanaticism.
The History Pages - the fact that every historical event is written from white sheet, but often bloody ink.
Inside My Mind - say the words of the same song.
"Everyone can create his own fate.
But, Where we least a think,
There the bear goes away...
Make your own world like a dream.
Never standing still, do the best you feel"
