30. 11. 2015INFECTED CHAOS – „10 questions“
When was your group set up, why this particular name, what does it mean and what the initial reason of its creation?
Resistance and their iconic symbol that is the ancient god of war, Ares. In the world we live in we have to bow to a so called elite and that´s not the way we want to live. We are all controlled but should be our own leaders.
Yet some songs don´t deal with this subject. These are “Ninth Circle” which is just about dying, “Code of I.C.”, a song that shows our love for true death metal and “Awaking into Nightmare” which deals about some hard times I personally had to suffer in the past few years.
Who is the author of the logo, cover, Website – how much importance do you place on these things?
Our logo was drawn by Christophe Szpaidel and Nino R. Meija. The fantastic cover and the rest of the artwork for the album was designed by Phlegeton of spanish death metal band Wormed. Check out his work and his band! You won´t regret, I promise!
In our eyes these things are very important. You have to offer the complete package, harmony of all components to create this special feeling death metal is made of.
Which bands have inspired you?
I cannot name specific bands here. Everyone in the band has his own favorites. We mix these influences and the result is Infected Chaos. Of course one cannot deny there´s a certain affinity for crushing, straight-to-your-face-death-metal, hahaha...
Have you sent your recordings to the labels… which ones? What was their response?
The recordings were sent to many labels. Some were interested, some had their rosters already completed and others – the bigger ones – just didn´t answer or sent a standard response wishing us good luck for the future. We were signed by an Austrian label finally, but it went bankrupt and the owners just disappeared. We got signed by another Austrian label fast, but there the same thing happened. That´s awful. Fuck you guys!
How many shows have you done, and which ones do you consider the best?
We did about ten shows up to date and they are all special to us. No matter if in small clubs or at a festival. A total blast was our second show... We had the chance to open for legendary Possessed! It was very inspiring to share the stage with these guys!!!
Do you have ambitions to play in other countries?
We already played in Germany, Austria and Italy but are of course always interested in spreading our music all around the globe! Playing live for the real maniacs is what being a metal musician is all about!
Plans for the future...
Gigs, gigs, gigs!!!
And we are currently working on songs for our second album and maybe we will produce a clip for one of the songs from The Wake of Ares! Stay tuned!
Cheers metalheads, see you on the road!!
And thank you Pavel for doing this interview with me!!
