This might not be the longest or most informative interview you’ll ever read but some bands do let the music do all the talking, like BANNED FROM HELL. Anders Ekdahl ©2017
Do you notice that there is an anticipation for you to release an album? Have you built a large enough following for people to eagerly await a new album?
– Currently there aren’t any news, but we’re working on it. Certainly, we have built a world wide circle of fans who follow us, and love our work.
Is it important for you that the new album picks up where the previous left off? How does this new album compare to the previous ones?
– Our next work will be totally different. It’s a mix of various kind of composition shades, and that’s all we can say.
Was it hard for you to come up with a sound for this album that you all could agree on?
– Yes, really hard. We worked so much on every detail and the result is exactly what we wanted it to be, a mix of speed, technique, horror sfx and many more
How important are the lyrics to you? What kind of topics do you deal with?
– Our lyrics talk about horror, splatter themes mixed with social issues. Our desire is to give the listener a way to reason on world’s issues as pedophilia, terrorism and many others.
How important is the cover art work for you? How much do you decide in choosing art work?
– Our artwork represents the end of mankind portraying the evil generated by men as the cause of its extinction.
How important is having a label to back you up today when you can just release your music on any sort of platform online? Are there any negative consequences to music being too readily available to fans?
– Is really important to have someone who takes care of our work and follow us step by step in release and production. No, just positive consequences.
I guess that today’s music climate makes it harder for a band to sell mega platinum. How do you tackle the fact that downloading has changed how people consume music?
– The music’s world has evolved and consequently the sales mode has changed, we have adapted.
Does nationality matter today when it comes to breaking big. What bands from your country do you predict will make it big internationally (apart from your own band)?
– We trust in Fleshgod Apocalypse.
I use Spotify and Deezer but only as compliment to buying CDS (it’s easier to just have your phone or pad when you’re out) but I fear that soon music as we know it will be dead and buried. What are your worries as a band?
– We are not worried about, as already said we embrace the music evolution.
What does the future hold for you?
– We are confident in our future, big news coming soon we would like to thank you and STAY TUNED
