How did you first learn about Metal-Rules.com?
I was told about it by our new drummer Jack as the biggest music resource
on the internet.
Are you a regular visitor to the Metal-Rules.com webzine?
Yes, I am a fairly regular visitor. At least once a day I am reading
How important is Metal-Rules.com or the Internet in general for
getting your music?
For today the internet is the most important way to let people listen
to our music. I cannot call our sort of music widely popular, that’s
why I guess the internet is the almost only effective way to release
In your experience, either as a reader or as a band, what has
Metal-Rules.com meant to you?
Personally for me, Metal-Rules.com is a convenient way to be aware of
news or something and to joke in the board...
Do you think webzines like Metal-Rules.com are, or maybe someday
could, replace traditional published magazines?
I am convinced they could.
Can you please list the members of the band and what they each
Val Brewer – guitar, vocal;
Andrew Bald – guitar;
Christophor Moleskin – bass;
Jack Daniel - drums
How long has the band been together and what goals would you like
to achieve in the coming years with the band?
The band was formed in November 28th, 1999. Only Val and Andrew left
since the original line-up. In the coming years we are going to further
present our music to the world, participate in variety of compilations,
and also give surprises.
In your opinion, what style of metal would you say best describes
what you play?
Most likely it must be technical death metal, but we call it
psycho-death metal (or math-death metal).
Who have been some of your main influences?
The guys (who influenced us) were from Pestilence, Carcass, Cannibal
Corpse, Morbid Angel and early Metallica.
Is your band currently signed to a record label?
Currently we are not signed to a record label but probably would like
Have you contributed work to other compilation CDs?
Yes, at the same time we gave 2 more songs, one for a compilation,
and another - for a tribute CD. Both expected to come out in
Where did they hear about this compilation?
Of cause, at Metal-Rules.com.
Why did you choose this compilation to get your music to potential
I thought it would be a great idea if our music penetrates another
continent together with music of those who have been known or even
popular there. This is a real chance to scream out we are here.
Besides your song, what is the best feature of the Metal-Rules
compilation and why?
It's especially nice there is a serious approach to the producing of
Why did you choose this particular song for the compilation?
This was the first song we were working on at a professional studio.
To my mind, it is symbolic and it just must succeed...
Where did you record the song & who wrote it and produced it?
I’d like not to separate band’s poets, composers, and musicians.
Without everybody’s participation the song wouldn’t see daylight
ever. As for us there is no difference between what every one brings
into our music exactly, either all song stuff or an insanely played
note. The song was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Moscow at Sound Age
studio by Lazar. He is our friend and also musician. He is aware what is
necessary to do to get music.
Would you say that your song on this compilation representative of
all your material?
Of course not. Our works are special musical polyhedron. This song is
one of it’s edges. All our songs or edges complement one another to
What is your song on this compilation about and what was the
inspiration behind it?
The featured song is about unusual human’s state when one cannot
implement something very simple but is very good at doing extraordinary
things and irrelevant at the same time. I am not sure how it is called
but I surely know it is. As for the inspiration, this was a fanciful
construction resulted from realizing existence and books having been
What about this song made you select it for this compilation?
This song was written long ago and was one of the songs that had been
destined for our demo CD.
What kind of expectations do you have towards this particular
compilation? What do you hope to gain by being featured?
We expect a wide presentation of this compilation and invitations to
participate in different shows far from our homeland...
Are you hoping this might help you in some way gain the kind of
exposure that may lead to a label picking you up?
We certainly hope it is...
As you know, most of the bands on this compilation are not
extremely well known. Do you think a compilation CD with a group of
mostly underground bands is a great way to help get your music noticed?
All ways are good to get music noticed. This would be even more
effective if the compilation is of a big quantity of copies and the
approach to the distribution of the CD is adequate.
What do you think of compilation CD’s overall?
I believe the compilation will be capable to reflect the overall
condition of heavy music in the world and also labels’ and
distributors’ attitude to such the releases.
What kinds of things should a compilation feature in order to make
it worth purchasing and what makes a compilation worthwhile?
A compilation must not contain excessive information and must be “expensively”
decorated. No one needs to economize money on a quality product.
If you had a chance to put together this type of compilation, what
would be some of the unsigned bands you’d like to feature?
I don't know, it's not very easy for me to answer this question.
Would you be interested in sacrificing another song for “Metal-Rules.com
- Vol. II” if the opportunity presented itself?
We’d love to.
Where can people order your other recorded material?
At the moment, at our website and variety of compilations we
What are your band’s upcoming battle plans?
Our closest goal is to record and release our debut CD and I hope we
will manage to do this at near time. Generally, we are going to keep on
playing good and quality music.
