I had the pleasure to have an interview about Crematory, I’ve talked with Rolf, the guitar player of the band. The German gothic/doom metal band have released a new album under the name of ”Monument”.
Greeting, it’s my pleasure having this interview with you. When have you joined Crematory officially?
Rolf: Hi and thanks for having me! If I remember correct, it was in August 2015. I had the first meeting with Markus just before my holidays last year in June. After that, we rehearsed some songs and it was soon clear that this would work together. Really happy about this!
‘’Monument’’ is the newest release, what is the concept behind this album?
Rolf: The band is very proud of what they’ve accomplished in the last 25 years. We are really happy that we’re doing what we’re doing after 25 years. So I think the album stands for 25 years of making music with all the ups and downs the music business has to offer. We wanted to prove at least for us that we still can make a great album and go out and deliver a killer show. It’s a very energetic album. It has variety, those electronic elements and in the same time sounds fresh and up to date. It features hard guitar riffs and powerful grooves, dark Keyboards lines combined with killer growls and clean vocals.
