💿Hi, it’s a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal JEREMY SOSVILLE of SANHEDRIN. Welcome!!
Can you tell us somethin’about your early days of your career? When is this all begun? Which bands have influenced you and What’s the matter of your moniker?
The band came together in 2014. I had been playing with Nathan for a while trying to get something going, and Erica came into the fold upon Nathan’s suggestion and we became a band. In 2015 we released a demo and started playing out around the same time. As far as influences, they are wide-ranging. We obviously love the classic metal and hard rock like Priest, Ozzy, Dio, Sabbath, UFO, Van Halen…I could go on forever. But each of us individually have our own tastes outside that sphere that influence our sound when we converge. What you hear is the recipe of what the three of us come up together when we work to get the most of each other creatively. As for our name, it’s a Hebrew word meaning “assembly” or “council” which we feel reflects our approach to the band creatively and otherwise. 💿 On April 27th will be out your album “A FUNERAL FOR THE WORLD”, originally self released. Can you tell us somethin’about its composition process? Are you satisfied about this job? We were very impressed about it!
We are quite happy with how it turned out, and even happier about how well it’s been received so far. We feel the recording represents the material very well, a testament to our engineer Colin Marston. We worked hard ahead of recording to ensure we could make the most of our time in the studio and everyone involved went above and beyond to make sure the album came out as well as it did. 💿 The real “news” in music industry is the return of vinyl; What’s your feeling about this classic format and the current music “business”?
I’ve always been a fan and collector of vinyl, and the resurgence among the mainstream is pretty cool I think. It’s nice to see that with all the digital options, many of them free, that people still care enough about the artists they like to purchase physical versions of their music. As a music fan myself, there is just a deeper connection to the art when it is tangible and not some file on a computer. As for the current music business, there’s definitely no one model that works for everyone. For us, self-releasing the album on Bandcamp and making vinyl and CDs available has proven to be the right move. The word of mouth of the underground has really been the driving force behind our music getting into the ears of people to this point.
💿 "A FUNERAL FOR THE WORLD” will be out through CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC. Can you tell us somethin’about relationships with them?
While self-releasing has its creative perks, there is only so much we can do as a band to expand our reach without help from the outside. We were introduced to Enrico from Cruz Del Sur, and it did not take long for things to come together.
Cruz Del Sur has a great roster of bands, and we are excited to be among them and have a partner to help us get our music to a wider audience.
💿 Can you tell us somethin’about your next live and studio projects?
In June, we’ll be doing a short east coast US run with Sabbath Assembly, and we have a few other shows here and there over the summer.
Then we hope to head into the studio in the fall to record our next album that we are deep into writing.
💿 We love the cover of your album! Who made it?
The cover art was done by Seventhbell Artwork in the UK. We wanted the cover to be the gravestone for the ‘Funeral For The World’
💿 Thank you so much for your time! See you soon on Hardrockheavymetal! (Thanks ClawHammer PR; pics credits SUZANNE ABRAMSON)
