How do you write a song?
Usually we come to rehearsals with ready basics of riffs and beats and we put it all together. All songs are prepared as tabs before. Playing new songs on gigs is good way to see ‘how it works’ before recording. Big moshpit means that song is good.
Can you tell us something about the lyrics of your songs?
Tomash is repsonslible for all lyrics. They’re mainly about necronomicon stuff, internal laceration, wars and other soul and spirit diseases. They’re not too happy, are they? Soon we’ll launch our official website, all lyrics will be avaiable there.
Polish scene is really full of bands, where you stand with other bands and how you live?
Yes it is! Polish scene is one of the strongest metal scenes in the world. There are plenty of bands around, both famous and underground. Having friends is very helpful during organisation of gigs and events. Lesser bands help each other and that’s really cool. In this sort of music there aren’t any competitions or rat races, it’s all about having fun and keeping people interested in what we’re doing. Speaking about other bands – check out 666th Panzer Division founded by members of Cryptic – Tomash and Kacper.
How are you promoting the album?
Official worldwide premiere date is around 1th of July by ukrainian label – Metal Scrap Records. Currently we’re setting up dates of polish tour. We’re also hoping to play some gigs abroad in Czech/Slovakia/Ukraine and in every place where we can meet fans of our music! We’re also cooperating with undergrounds medias and promotion agencies. Soon after official releasing of this LP we’ll send it to every newspaper and zine on planet, hahah.
What do you think about the today extreme metal scene?
I think it’s stronger and bigger than ever. It’s different than oldschool 80’s and 90’s climates but with such a wide choice of genres you can be sure you’ll find something interesting. New albums of Immolation, Dying Fetus and younger bands like Hour of Penance or Sickening Horror show how far are we from death metal’s boundaries, if there are any. Short look on line-ups of biggest festivals and numbers of people who are coming up there explains everything!
What kind of relation do you have with your supporters? What do you think of virtual communities and social networks?
You found us on Myspace, so you know something about it for sure, haha. It’s absolutely necessary to use communities like Myspace or polish Muzzo. With it you can reach more listeners and meet more people who can help you in many matters. Media partners work in the same way. You can expect reviews, interviews or just couple of good words. It really helps.
Can you tell us the best things that happened you on-stage? Do you have a live performance you would like to repeat?
Every gig is different and unique. I wouldn’t repeat particular performance but we often come back to places where venues are fine and crowd goes mad. My favourite cities to play are Cracow, Wroclaw and our home little town – Mszana. Couple years ago we took part in one of open air events called Metalowa Twierdza (Metal Stronghold) in Nysa and that was absolutely awesome.
Were you already working on new material?
Yes! Until today we have ‘skeletons’ for six new numbers. We started work with them couple weeks ago and I think they will kick some sinless asses, hahah. They’re (songs not asses) bit more intensive than others. During holidays we’ll try them live and record another LP as soon as possible. This year maybe.
Would we ever see you live in Italy?
Hopefully! When winter lasts 6 months we have no other plans than going to Italy, haha. To see Fleshgod Apocalypse or Illogicist I LOVE them. If we receive any offers or find people to cooperate with why not?
