Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Youdash is a mix of personalities, it can give you headache haha. So, I’am a manager in Tattoo studio, Len is bank accountant, Buczek is psychologist (a heavy one) and Matz is doing some nice looking wooden parquets. Buczek and Len play together for more than 18 years, dudes are foundations of the band. Matz joined the duo in 2012? and that’s how Youdash was born. Before “Hunting..” that one guy who was singing has left the band so I joined them for good.
Because of age differences, places we lived and stuff like that we cannot be compared to others. It's a mixture of everything, we do not sit and think what genre we will play – we just do what we feel. So I guess, after listening to our songs you can think that we are weird guys-all is true.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Well, I think that Deformeathing described us well. People can hear many styles in our music, but basically in my opinion we’re Progressive death metal. I like to compare us to BTBAM but after some trauma. First time I’ve met guys I’ve told them that it sounds like Atheist – very heavy one so hold your pants on!
Hard to say which bands other guys would put out but I was heavily into Gojira, all time Townsend, Cynic, The Contortionist and Cattle Decapitation while making LP.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
First of all, it’s not only for metalheads. Secondly, our album cover looks sweet, everyone should have Astrophobia on the shelf because of it. And the best thing is, that it’s a more than decent album, which was growing in us through years. It should be part of every metalheads life!
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We’ve released two EPs “Na pohybel” and “Hunting Among the Stars”. Our big kid LP “Astrophobia” will be out on 16.12. 2016
I think that both ep’s had similar response from public. Not so bad reviews and interest from zines. Maybe because of higher number of concerts after “Hunting..” the second EP was selling a bit better.
Our debut is having good receive even it’s not out. After we’ve put “Devouring Cell” on youtube, many webzines wrote about us and about coming of LP.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Like I’ve wrote before – we had good year or so. We’ve played on some fests, smaller concerts in few main cities in Poland - we had short but good tour through our little country. Right now we are dealing with personal issues - growing up and shit. But everything is going on good way so we have bigger touring plans for 2017 (hope so).
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
After many years of activity, two EPs and a number of concerts, we have mastered breaking down the barriers during the creative process. The terms like „convention”, „frames”, „styles”, „limitations”, „calculation” are not the point. There is only an absolute freedom of creating the sound.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Now everything is spinning around “Astrophobia” so we will promote it and try to play as more as we can.
