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?
“Prenatal Suicide” is the first album of Buried In A Womb.
It´s a concept album about my inner child which tells there story from the procreation in the womb, the birth and the aftermath of the existence. The protagonist behold the creation of man into the womb and ask many anxious questions which are questions of us all but we repress this questions as members of this human race and the society. The main topic is existentialism and the unexplained existentialistic questions we have. We are so deep into our life concepts that we forget to generate the answer of this questions. The result is a prenatal suicide in the womb because the questions were asked in the phase of the fetus can´t answered. On the other hand, it´s about our roots of neuroticism and the transferences of our emotional binding in the early childhood to the relationships as adults.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
It´s an energetic mix of dirty Blackened Crust, Melodic Black Metal and some Death Metal stuff. There are many strange changes in the songs from hard Crust Core and Black Metal to some lovely acoustic guitar parts which could be from a new Rush record, haha. I don´t care about genres. I do want I want even if I know that a lot of people will say this is inappropriate. The point is my inner self, not the credentials of the listeners. So, the album is for free minded listeners.
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 the Garden of Eden studio of my brother. My brother did the mixing and mastering as well. It was a long time recording session. We started in summer 2016 and we met us in long single periods to record the album. It was a cool boozy time and a lot of friends came to make guest parts on the album. It was a long time party with many odd situations but it´s strange to talk about it, haha. As an example, I cut my hand on a beer bottle and played the rhythm guitar with that hand in that night. A lot of blood flow over the guitar the whole time and it hurt so much but we won´t stop the recording session. It looked like a pure massacre. It was painful but a night I will never forget and the results were good. I thought: “If my pain is on the record, it is worth.” Yes, I hope now after this story you can listen it, hehe.
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?
The Cover Artwork was made by Jill Colbert. I like her style and her Artworks were used by my other projects as well. I think the cold atmosphere represents the despondency of the lyrics perfectly. That’s the daily perspective of the protagonist….only grey skies and depressive constriction.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
The cool thing for a one-man-band is that there are only you, an instrument and a rehearsal room. So, I will record the next album which is already written and after that I write new druggy stuff. No shows, no fame! Only desolation, drug abuse and your creativity. It´s simply great to run one-man-bands. By the way, the next album which is ready for recording is called “Nihilized Punk” and the songs sounds like the album title, nihilistic and dirty.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The album will be available digital only at the moment.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
I don’t have the time and capacity to make big promotion. I contacted magazine for reviews. This is it.
Where can we order it from?
