The Evil Dead Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

We are mainly doing promotion at this moment ,some new music has been written too.

2.At the end of January, you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

I don’t think its that much different from the previous album but it has a darker touch and it’s a lot more focused and cohesive perhaps ,the first one was a collection of songs we were doing live and Earth Inferno was written with an album in mind .That makes the listening experience more fluid .

3.You refer to your music as 'Electric Evil Metal', can you tell us a little bit more about this term?

We don’t care much about labeling the music but since people cant seem to pinpoint a genre to us that title sounds about right, metal that explodes in every direction and is fun and dangerous . Rock n Roll should always be dangerous ,it’s the Devil´s music after all.

4.This is your first album since 2012, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?

Touring the first album throughout Argentina ,rehearsing,writing and recording the new album. It took us a long time to find the right label and we are pretty happy with the overall result so far.

5.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

The whole album deals with darknes,,death ,insanity and the occult

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'The Evil Dead'?

The name came from the movie ,we didn’t give it much thought and should have,makes googling a bitch.We wanted a name that evoked evil and fun at the same time ,both characteristics of our music.

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We did some really good ones opening for other bands , one gig that I remember was playing on a stadium in berazategui city for the Guinness book of records that wanted a whole week of bands playing non stop,two stages had been set up and when one band was done the other started .Was pretty bizarre. We try to make our live show an experience that draws the crowd in and give them the best show possible ,this is very hard to pull on small stages though.

8.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

Not at the moment but we are open for any offers

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?

So far reviews have been excellent but the album has only been out for 10 days ,it’s a little early to say but I think it will do well.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

The band will tread the same path when it comes to music ,if we wanna pull a “load” or “st anger” i´ll do it as a solo project but The Evil Dead will remain the same.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Bands that have a direct influence on our music?Metallica ,Dissection,Iron Maiden,Blue Oyster Cult,ACDC,Mayhem,Bathory, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many many more .

12.How would you describe your views on Occultism?

This is very personal but I will say that I do believe in the Occult and that it is not to be taken lightly.

13.What are some of your non musical interests?

Movies,books,traveling, drinking .I have an interest in languages too.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thank you for the interview ,good interesting questions. Buy our album and get possessed ,hopefully well see you around on tour !
