When did Bleed Someone Dry was founded?
The present formation of BSD is the same that created ”PostMortem |Veritas”, plays together since three years ago but the band has been active for much longer than that!

This year you have released the third album entitled ”Post Mortem/Veritas”. Tell me about it.
‘Postmortem | Veritas’ is a modern tale, based on a negatively pessimistic reality related to the current social context, analyzed through careful and meticulous observation, that only children are able to do. We tried to immerse ourselves in our daily reality but from the point of view of Aelia, a little girl of any given age of childhood, who asks questions related to adults common behavior , behavior which drives events and their on consequences. Through twelve points we imagined having to provide answers and explaining the ‘small’ issues that decide the unfolding of the regular things and society. At the same time we are honored to have been able to confront and work with great artists like Chris Donaldson, a very special person who provided a huge help in addition to his monstrous professionalism, Luca T. Mai of Zu and Mombu who honored us with his partnership and CJ of Thy Art Is Murder, a really helpful and nice guy who made a dream we had come true.

What can you tell me about the two other albums, ”The World Is Falling In Tradegy” and ”Subjects”?
As for the previous work “Subjects” and “The World is Falling in Tragedy” I can tell you briefly that they are two projects on which the current band worked only in part, 2/4 of us weren’t part of the band then and when they were composed. While twifit presents songs with strong trash influences, ”Subjects” had a crazy and distorted extreme sound. On the contrary in “PostMortem |Veritas” the sound features new musical styles and ideas. We tried not to lose our matrix “math” and incorporate it into a Modern Death, trying to create a dark and violent music scene . Personally, I am very satisfied!

What are the lyrical themes and who mainly writes the lyrics?
As for the songwriting, the instrumental part is composed by Jonny (guitarist) who brings each project in the studio where it is submitted to the band and discussed and changed at times, team work basically. As for the lyrics, I take care of them. Usually I let myself being inspired by my thoughts and what I want to talk about, then I create a theme and try to create a concept upon it in the more original way as possible.

Album review: Bleed Someone Dry- ”PostMortem |Veritas”

By Carla Morton

Bleed Someone Dry is a Deathcore metal band from Italy. They have released their third full-length this year entitled PostMortem |Veritas.

BSD-cover

The album contains 12 tracks: starts with Haeretica Infans and ends with the track Ora Pro Nobis. The album also contains two tracks: Our Martyrdom featuring CJ of Thy Art Is Murder and Ora Pro Nobis featuring Luca Mai of Mombu.

Not that I am into Deathcore so much, but Bleed Someone Dry’s album is acceptable.
I can say this album is also bit melodic and technical, and I say technical by what is the drummer doing on the  album, the guitar riffs are ok, the vocalist has a brutal voice fitting for a Deathcore band (heard other Deathcore bands but the vocalists just scream a lot and the music is not ok) ,on the track Let Me In he sings calm and same the song is melodic.
Lovers of Deathcore and TechDeath might like this band and their new album so they can give a try. Usually, not many underground bands satisfy me, but Bleed Someone Dry as said sounds pretty well, PostMortem |Veritas is an interesting album, go check the band and listen to the new album!

Hi Nico, how are you?
Very well, thank you!

Tell me when Soulspirya was formed?
We were born in Venice in 2014 after Lachaise project tired of the continuous changes in the line-up.

You have released the album this year, ”Stay Human”. Tell me about it.
First of all the name of the album: “Stay Human” comes from a phrase that became famous by the activist, journalist and Italian writer Vittorio Arrigoni talking about Gaza-Israel conflict. It consists of eleven songs and is the reflection of what we want to transmit: a concentration of power, melody and soul.  And the most important thing for us is that the first time you listen to the songs, they result to be very different from one another.

Interview: Firelord

Interview with Mario Bussini (vocals and guitar) about Firelord, Stoner band from Italy.

Hello Mario, how are you?
Hi, it’s a troublesome time. Hope I’ll get out of it soon.

When was Firelord formed?
Firelord were born in 2007 from the ashes of my old project called Saint Judas. After a brief experience in a Black Sabbath tribute band, I had the idea to found my own doom metal band, influenced from the Sabbath, of course, and also Count Raven, Reverend Bizzarre, Gates Of Slumber etc. Then I found in my drummer mate Giulio Buscaglione a good partnership to develop music less derivative than the original idea, but more stoner and metal oriented, and with the influences of our former bassists we kept developing a kind of personal sound, now more influenced from bands like Monster Magnet, Orange Goblin, and Black Label Society. 2015’s line up is formed by me, Giulio Buscaglione on drums and our new bassist Alessandro Ferrari.

 You have released this year an EP entitled ”Hammer Of Chaos”. Tell me about it.
”Hammer Of Chaos” is our third studio work. We decided to record an EP to concentrate ourselves in less music and increase the quality of the tunes by working very hard on it. I had a bunch of drafts that we managed for months before entering the studio, unless the songs took the perfect shape we had thought. I think the all EP sounds very fresh and various and is a good proof about how we increased the way we play and arrange our music. It sounds very direct and heavy, right in your face like we’re just playing live in front of you.
