SHAME YOURSELF (Eng.)

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

We’re playing gigs and focus on promoting our first album, working on the new one at the same time.

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

We’re not going to get back to old times. It’s a story like the one of any other band. A few guys met to play something together. It appeared to be quite nice and people enjoyed it too. We’ve quickly decided to record our demo version and then the whole album. We’ve been looking for the studio and were giving shows. In the meantime the line-up has been changing a few times. Fortunately, everything got right and in 2011 and we registered “Wonderfuck”.

 

3. How could you describe your sound?

It can be called trash metal with juicy riffs in a medium pace with groove metal elements, covered with death metal vocals. There may be found quite a lot of stuff as for trash melodies and choirs or even HC elements. Everyone can find there something for oneself.

 

4. What are the band’s main musical influences?

First of all, the titans of trash metal – Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, Testament or Anthrax and Exodus, the early school of death metal Obituary, Gorefest, Carcass, Death, Swedish mad death metal – Entombed, Dismember, Grave, of course heavy Iron Maiden, Ozzy etc. but also classics like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple. It’s also Rammstein, Pantera who influenced us a lot, Vader, Acid Drinkers and Behemoth are also important for us. Generally speaking, I mentioned main bands playing concrete genres of metal. But if we were to inspire and learn something we would follow the top ones, which we’re trying to do.

 

5. How is the feedback for your new album being?

Feedback is something surprising, we’ve never encountered any bad opinions (maybe behind our back heheeh) fans often ask us for our albums. We usually, receive 6-8 out of 10 points when they write about us. I reckon it’s quite a lot.

 

6. And are your personally satisfied with the final outcome?

Totally!!! We’ve been searching for the right sound for quite a long time. Everything was carefully thought through and discussed with the engineer, except for drums. Maybe it’s not what we were expecting for in a 100% as for nowadays standards, but it’s ‘nice’ to hear after all and there’s nothing boring.

 

7. How could you describe this opus in just 3 words?

Dynamically, brutally, ironically.

 

8. How has the production process for your new release been?

It was a bit different in our case. We’ve decided to register drums ourselves, which cost us a few months of gathering equipment, recording and correcting. Fortunately, after great difficulties we received quite interesting effect. When it comes to the rest of instruments, vocals and mixes as well as mastering we entered the SPAART studio in Boguchwala near Rzeszow. The work itself was a pure pleasure. It took us a while to find appropriate sounds, etc. The process of recording was easy, but we had to hire the studio twice (because they had a lot of work with other bands). In September 2011 they gave us a completed album. We still hadn’t any cover though. In the meantime, we started a cooperation with Metal Scrap Records and a friend of ours helped us to make up quite appealing graphics.

 

9. And how do you use to work on the songwriting?

It starts with a riff or a rhythm. Then a skeleton of a track appears, arrangements, and something more bores in our minds. Sometimes one song changes a few times during weeks or even months. Vocals come as last, solos, melodies, details, etc. We’re doing our best to make it of as high-quality as possible.

 

10. Finally, what are you near-future?

We’re focusing on promoting our debut just to get to as wide audience as possible. We’re also working on some new stuff, playing gigs, drinking beer and having fun. The nearest future should flourish with a series of gigs, and in further time with our second album.

 

11. 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.

Come in crowds for our shows and have fun as F*** ]:> we’re playing for YOU!
