HELLSPAWN (Eng.)

– Hello, thanks for answering to our questions. What are you guys currently up to?

M. Hello, always a pleasure. Currently, we’re focusing on finishing the construction of our new studio/rehearsal room. It’s quite problematic, because we play gigs regularly, but we haven’t had a rehearsal for a few months, so could really use the comfort that having frequent rehearsals gives, haha.

– First off, could you make some history of the band?

M. Sure, we started almost 10 years ago, and throughout those years we’ve played in the same lineup without a single member leaving or joining us. It’s a rare thing when it comes to underground bands like us. Our first output was «Demo 2005», which was released twice: by Nihilistic Holocaust in France, and by Infernal Overkill in Chile. The latter was on tape. Our first album was released in 2010 thanks to Exploratory Drilling Productions, and out latest album, «The Great Red Dragon» was released a few months ago by W.M. Psycho.

 

– How could you describe your sound?

M. Diabolical Amercian death metal – I guess sounds cool, and fits us, haha.

 

– What are the band’s main musical influences?

M. Nothing out of the ordinary: Morbid Angel, Diabolic, Angelcorpse, Behemoth, Hate Eternal. Basically, we play the music that we like listening to.

 

– How is the feedback for your new album being?

M. Excellent. Reviewers love the album, it’s sound and song writing. Some complain about its lack of originality, and them I can only ask kindly to suck my dick… It’s fucking death metal, what did they expect?!

 

– And are your personally satisfied with the final outcome?

M. Well, we recorded the album two years ago, and we did the best thing we could do at that moment. It was a kind of a coronation of that period for the band. If we were to record the same material today, it would most definitely sound different, as we have evolved and made progress. But the quality of the album reflects our skills of that time, and I like it that way. So, yes, I’m satisfied.

 

– How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?

M. Death Fvkking Metal!

 

– How has the production process for your new release been?

M. We’ve got our own studio and I’m the one responsible for the overall sound. What you can hear is the best thing I could come up with, and I’m pretty satisfied with the sound: we wanted a dense sound with a bit of roughness. Moreover, that was not the first thing we recorded together, so we know ourselves and our skills, and thanks to that the process went smoothly.

 

– And how do you use to work on the songwriting?

M. Each of us comes to rehearsal with a frame of a song and we work for that point collectively. Everyone gets a say, as we’re quite a democratic band, haha.

 

– Finally, what are you near-future plans?

M. In October we’re taking part in a big tour of Poland together with veterans from Pandemonium. This is going to be the biggest thing in our careers, as far as performing live is concerned.

 

– That’s all from our side, thanks again for taking your time to answer our questions. If you now want to add some final words; feel free to do it.

M. Thanks for the interview. Check our latest album and, hopefully, see you on shows \m/
