At least for the American audience, we released ‘Emotive’ as a reminder to get actually out and vote and express your opinion about what you want to see happen. No use in complaining when you do not vote.
The most important thing is that we still love to play and can get out there on the road!
When looking at my youth, I was not able to see every of my favourite bands live either. You can just enjoy the music, right? That has always been my point of view.
I have always felt that when a band plays live, some of the magic and the mystique which is contained on an album is generally lost. No matter how good the show is, the very act of playing live demystifies the band and brings them back down to a mundane and earthly level, such are the limitations of the technology and the very medium itself.
It’s funny you should say that because it’s probably true that no one actually knows each other’s parts.
Ever since Metallica did ‘Blitzkrieg’, I wanted to return the compliment!
We never set out to push any boundaries; we simply want to create the most honest and best music that we can.
Of course in the old traditional days you had a drummer, a guitarist, a singer, a producer, a technician, but fuck that. I just want to make great music and do not care how we do it or who is who and what is what. The result has to be killer, that’s all what matters.
LIFE. Real life in the real world. Diego writes from his heart and every word you read is a real life experience that he sees or has been involved in. This record is a very pure record. Straight from the heart.
In general I got to admit, that good music is all about feeling for me. And ‘Futile’ has a lot of it to offer.
An idea does not ask for a mood or what ever, it just appears when time is right. There is nothing I can do to force this, and to be honest, such things should not be forced anyway, I think.
I'd say we're a solitary act. There aren't many bands here that we identify with, either in sound or theme.
Shoulder to shoulder, just as the Vikings of old would have done standing in a shield wall wreaking havoc on the enemy.
No, we’re firing on all cylinders now!
De naakte bevers in de clip moeten de vrouwen voorstellen die zich na de shows op de zanger storten omdat ze seks met hem willen.
When Richard told me he wanted to stop, I was shocked and I even told him to finish that same year with us and then we would stop the entire band as a whole. Pff, I am glad I didn’t follow that idea!
Now everybody can choose: we make straight forward metal records with Rage; we keep the concepts, orchestral additions and softer layers for Lingua Mortis Orchestra. It is easier and more consequent to choose one style per album.
Those who liked our previous releases, will go fucking apeshit when our full-length comes out.
When we dream, is when we are most true to ourselves.
I’ve always wanted our records to mean more as group than just a representation of what we are at a particular moment in time.
At that point there is also not a lot of pressure writing new songs, so we had time to experiment and concentrated on making everything to sound as great as possible.
Hahaha, everyone asks this question.
Just like when we started the band, we found ourselves back. The rest is history.
our website is much like an old Viking Rune stone as far as updating goes.
To say that any set of rules should apply to all music is beyond misguided.
I believe it was important for us to do it the old fashioned way, to have the vibe and the chemistry between the members present. We got this house in the southern part of Portugal, refurnished it with amps and a drumkit and started the process.
We write about the underexplored horrors of the psyche, eroticism, and the darkness and confusion inherent in the human condition.
Ever onwards on the path towards liberation and ecstasy! To the Death!
Experience its divinity!
Unfortunately the rock scene in Spain is in a very weak condition.
