SACRAL NIGHT is another cool metal band that I just got in touch with. Anders Ekdahl ©2018
Every band has to introduce their music to new people. What is it that you want people to get from listening to you guys?
-An original aspect of our music. A mix of Heavy Metal & Darkness Sounds.
How hard was it for you guys to pick a name? What had that name have to have to fit your music?
-Sacral night is the night of the Sacrament , not difficult, just an inspiration from our lyrics.It’s not an heavy metal “style name “but no problem, the most important is : to have the atmosphere results for this !.
Everybody is influenced by certain things. What band(s) was it that turned you on to the kind of music you play? What inspires you today?
-We are inspired by the life, personal torments… and my imagination.
I currently listen : Lizzy Borden, Dokken, Van Stephenson, Ratt..not a big influence in our music ? !
When you formed did you do so with the intent of knowing what to play or did you do so from the point of having a band name and then picking a sound? How did you settle on the name/sound combo?
-I have an idea for the lyrics, the music is just adapted for this, it’s a sensation when I take my guitar…because the lyrics are just macabre and awful…finally the song is the same…Macabre & Awful..
No many questions for us…just play and vomit the songs.
I believe that digital is killing the album format. People’s changing habit of how they listen to music will result in there being no albums. Is there anything good with releasing single tracks only?
-For me it’s not a good result… people go to youtube…or download… it’s very difficult. These digital files are not a success, money is important to advance. Free music became queen, long live concerts to sell merchandise and albums !
What part does art-work and lay-out play when you release new recordings? How do you best catch people’s attention?
It must reflect our lyrics & our world, for the ep it’s an original choice I think.
Like French horror movies 80’s, jean rollin universe
Has social media re-written the rules on how to promote your music? Or do you go about doing promotion the same way?
-Yes we are on Facebook and youtube .. but the best is the shows !, for sales merchandising and get money for make a new album … !!
When you play in a band, does that make you feel like you are a part of a scene, of something bigger and grander?
-Yes, it’s an incarnation of the sacral night universe, a big incarnation of devastation, torment, rage… it’s a liberation for us…a real expiation, force…
How much of a touring band are you? Is touring/gigging still a great way of spreading the word of the band?
-We play at Courts of chaos Festival with Aura Noir, Manilla Road, Tokyo blade… in may & at No Compromise 2018 in Belgium.
Just 1 show in the past, with the Finnish band Ranger.
We would like to play more !
What will the future bring?
An album, Clip and Show !
