MECHANICAL GOD CREATION ARE B ACK WITH A NEW ALBUM. Read What they have to say about everything between hell and earth. Anders Ekdahl ©2019
We all come into music with our own baggage. We want different things from the music.How does the vision you had for the band when you started compare to the vision you have for the band today? What is this band really all about? What do you want with your music?
-When we started we were young and immature in this scene, we experienced many things and we have been watching bands that have been active for a long time, now we are aware of our potential and maturity.
Working with music would be our dream, we’re working on it and trying to bring the band to the next level.
Is there a difference in people’s attitude towards you if you don’t come from a cool place like LA or NY or London?
-It is difficult answering to this question, as I do not know the US underground scene,
when we went abroad we always had excellent feedback as foreigners for them. I think the foreign band always arouses some curiosity respect to the local band.
When you release an album that get pretty good feedback, how do you follow up on that? How important is that I as a fan can identify album to album?
-We try to advertise it as much as possible through the various available channels on the internet and by playing around our material. Each album differs from the other, even if we always propose our death metal we try to make each album unique.
What is the biggest challenge in the creation of an album? How do you write the really cool songs?
-The biggest difficulty in composing an album is the composition itself as you always have to find an agreement between us to try to create an excellent song.
We compose the songs by playing together in the rehearsal room and comparing our ideas.
I saw Dave Grohl’s documentary about Sound City and it made me wonder what it is about analogue recording that you don’t get with digital? Have you ever recorded analogue?
-I know there are differences between analog and digital recording, the analogue has a different “heat”, unfortunately we never had the opportunity to record in analog.
What is it like to sit there with a finished album? Do you think much what people will think of it?
-actually once the album is finished you don’t have to sit down but you have to commit yourself to publicize it the most possible, we like to know what people think we can always improve and learn from criticism as long as these are constructive.
How important are the lyrics and what message do you want to purvey?
-The lyrics are very important for us as we deal with many topics both of current events and issues such as religions and terrorism.
Ever since I first got into metal the art work has been a main motivator in buying a record. What part does art work for album covers play in the world of the band?
-The cover is very important because it contains everything the band wants to convey to the public, for us it also includes all the themes of the album.
When you play live do you notice a degree of greater recognition from the fans with each new time you pass through town?
-In every place where we played we have always had a good response, surely there will have been someone that didn’t like us,his we are aware of.
What do you see in the future?
At the moment we are enjoying the release of the new album but we are already planning future gigs and the composition of the successor of “The New Chapter”, we thank you for the space you have dedicated to us. Stay Metal.
