I have to ask one of the classical entry questions. Here are not many
people know your band in Turkey. Could you tell about the history of your band
briefly please ?
The idea came out in the year of 2006 by Alaa Swalha and Abdul-aziz Assaf,
went through a lot of ups and downs throught the years after. They found Rami
playing in one of the events. Anas Showed up. After that, some kind of auditions
came to be for a bassist. Eyad Salameh was a good choice. But, he had to leave
for some personal reasons. And Tamer Al-Shishani showed up again as a bassist.
in your country who are busy with this style of music should increase, you also
worked with a lot of musicians and parted ways. You must be forcing the
conditions to be a permanent band ?
As long as were harmonized, I think nothing can stop us. All the conditions
weve been through is just something ordinary, any band might be through it.
Were looking forward to keep the harmony and perfect combination between us.
When we view your country as general, we see there are bands in many styles
such as black metal, doom or thrash metal. But most of their styles are
depressive and protest, do the conditions of life make them to make this style
or are you depressive guys ?
This genre describes our feelings and we hope that we can deliver what we
feel to the listeners. So, I think that depression is a part of our personality
not a way of life.
You published your first songs, how were the reactions of people? All music
fans can approve your music style even though they never listen to metal.
Because mostly there are clean vocals in your tracks. In brief, what do you
think about the reactions of people to you and your music ?
As we still didnt release the CD to the markets, were Surprised as it
reached our expectations, shocked to hear that non-metal listeners liked our
Are your compositions and lyrics influenced by your life? What (or who) are
you influnced by when you write the lyrics ?
Influenced by our circumstances.
Are there any bands you take as an example for your musical works ?
Yes, Saturnus Forest of Shadows Daylight Dies and Before The Rain.
Are you interested in policy? What do you think about the last and increasing
events come out in your neighbour Palastine ?
We pray and wish from god to stop this blood drain. Our Condolences to the
free souls that sacrificed them selves for the freedom of Gaza. Special
condolences to the Turkish Martyrs And, as the least we can do, theres
something coming up for Gaza. We pray and wish from god to stop this blood drain.
Do you have any other occupations except music ?
Sure, everyone of us has his own career beside the music.
What are the band members expectations from the future?
We hope to put our signature in the doom metal scene and be side by side
with the great doom metal bands. Also make a new touch in melodic doom/death
Thank you very much for your answers. Finally, do you have something to say
to the doom metal fans?
