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?
This is our debut album, and our version of what extreme music is to us. We are very happy with the final result, it represents all that the band stands for.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
Blackened death metal with some atmospheric touches. Think Behemoth, Hate and Septic Flesh.
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 Unbound Studio (UK) then mixed and mastered at Nevo Studio (Sweden). Last night of recording the vocals we got really drunk and recorded a bunch of really stupid stuff that later was removed in the final mix.
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?
Me and Fredrik worked together to create the cover. It has an eye that is sewed shut, and three crowns that are scewred and twisted. In the back of it all sand script from the book of the dead. Put together it is a bit of a nick towards old school Swedish death metal of the 90s. Three crowns is the sigil of Sweden, eyes sewed shut is blinded by fear and words from book of the dead is the death and darkness of death metal. There is no real connection as the lyrics touches the themes of immortality and ravenous death worship.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
To show the world what we are about! Release a music video, tour and do amazing shows.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
