1. Tell us about your release "Caustic"
“Caustic” is a single from our album “Ronin” which uses a lot of sea faring metaphors to tell a deep meaning story about loss that isn’t specifically tied to the topic but can be interpreted as drowning in feelings of your own. Our friends from Wormholedeath also produced an amazing lyric video for this song which can be seen on our Youtube channel and our social media outlets.
2. What feeling do you hope people get from your music?
It depends on the song. Our songwriting includes a lot of emotions about ourselves, the world around us or topics that we think should be talked about. Also, we’ve grown as individuals during the time of the recordings for Ronin and of course still are. We all come from a more niche style of musical taste and we always wanted to introduce this part of our world into this band.
3. How do you prepare for recording a track?
We try to prepare the songs as best as possible on the technical side of things. When we go to a studio to record a song, EP or an album we’re always trying to include the sound engineer as much as we can. A new perspective from a professional is something that we appreciate very much. We had multiple recording sessions where we actually changed parts of the song because we got new insight.
4. What keeps your passion for music alive?
Interactions and reactions. We met so many great and interesting people through music and playing gigs and this community keeps us alive.
5. Who do you look up to and how have they influenced you?
We have a lot of different influences which really depend on the band members. Of course, our common ground is distilled into our music. But to name some names, the most influences come from Dir En Grey, KoRn, MUCC, HIM and many others.
6. How has your music evolved over time?
Our EPs were a good way for us to experiment with our sound and audience. We didn’t quite know where we belonged sound wise and had to try and see what sticks. As many other bands, we took time and practice to search for ourselves what our own sound is. For Ronin we really dug deep and put as much of our progress into it as possible. This album is our calling card and we worked very hard on our LP debut.
7. How has your experience been with Wormholedeath?
We were contacted by Wormholedeath a little over a year ago and have worked with them for the release of our album and other marketing opportunities. Carlo has always been very nice and was a pleasure to work with, also the rest of the crew we had contact with were great. The most important part: they've always been honest. No bullshit, you get what you agreed upon.
8 What is your ultimate goal?
We want to leave our mark in the world. There is no limit on our goal, we don’t want to play a specific venue or work with an artist we adore. Our aspiration is to be heard; it doesn’t matter if it’s by 10 or 10.000 people.
