💿 Hi, it’s a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal Niclas of ARMORY! Welcome!! Thanks you very much! 💿 Your new platter THE SEARCH is ready and it will be available in stores from July 13th. Can you tell us somethin’about this album and its composition process? I’m really satisfied with the new album and I think we raised the bar for this one.
I think we have progressed and grown as songwriters since the last album witch you hopefully can hear on the new one.
Also the lyrics are a bit more in depth, which gives the album a darker vibe. Over all The Search is faster and darker than World Peace... Cosmic War.
If I remember correctly the songwriting kind of started when World Peace... Cosmic War was released and then went on a bit longer than a year. 💿 Honestly, I was very impressed by your first full length WORLD PEACE..COSMIC WAR.
Speed metal but not only, the style was very personal and I was struck by last SPACE MARAUDERS, a bridge towards somethin’different.
After two years what’s your opinion about your debut full-length? Thank you very much. The fact that I know that we are much better nowadays than on the first album kind of makes me tired off World Peace.. Cosmic War.
But maybe that's just because I’m really excited to release the new album right now?
Anyway there are still some immortal tracks like Space Marauders and Artificiell Slavery that I’m still really enjoying. 💿 The real “news” in music industry is the return of vinyl. What’s your feeling about this classic format and the current music “business”? We all love vinyl, I get the feeling that you get more value for the money of buying a vinyl than a cd. And its great for the cover art to get a bigger impact on people as well.
💿The new album will be out again via HIGH ROLLER RECORDS. Can you tell us somethin’about the relationships with them? High Roller is great, but honestly that not that much to say about the relationship, we got a budget and recorded an album and then they release it, its pretty much it. 💿 We love the cover of THE SEARCH. Can you tell us sometin’about? We love it too! It's the artist Mattias Frisk that made it, he also did the art for World Peace...Cosmic War.
He is a fantastic artist and really great to work with.
I had the idea in my head of two scientists in space that was hypnotized, then I called Mattias and he really understood what we were aiming for and then he began to work.
He sent us some sketches through the process and it was always spot on.
It´s also fits the title of the album really well. 💿 Can you tell us somethin’about your next live projects? We don't have that many gigs booked right now but it will be more.
We will try to play more outside of Sweden this autumn and especially in Germany.
We are right now working on our stage show but i dont want to spoil anything. 💿 Thank you so much for your time! See you soon on Hardrockheavymetal!
Thank you and make sure to prepare your self for The Search!
