Summon: How did the band get started?
Choffe: Me and Aron joined forces in 2010. I had a lot of stupid ideas about making crappy songs and producing them really well and hoping that people would like them anyways. So I then brought in the crappy singer that is Aron. But then it just so happened that the songs got a little better than expected, and we had to start a band.

 

 

Summon: What kind of music do you play?
Aron: Groovy modern melodic thrash. Fast and mid-tempo, mostly. Sometimes too fast in individual tempo.

 

 

Summon: How has the fan response been?
Aron: Good, I guess.
Choffe: Almost too good, we can’t live up to the expectations 🙂

 

 

Summon: Where did the band name come from?
Choffe: Can’t remember, probably a twist of words in Aron’s head, as usual.
Aron: Yep, a twist of words in my head from watching too much Monty Python.

 

 

Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band:
Aron: Ok, introducing…
Aron – vocals
Choffe – guitar
Patrik – Guitar
Jojje – Bass
Kaka – Drums

 

 

Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?
Choffe: I write most of the music, Aron does most of the lyrics.

 

 

Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?
Choffe: Where do ideas come from? That’s a tricky one…
Aron: Probably something involving the Higg’s boson? Too complicated!

 

 

Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?
Choffe: If God exists, I love all his creatures the same, even Satan.
Aron: Only that God does not exist, and neither does Satan, goblins, Elvis or Paul McCartney. It’s all Jabberwocky, and it’s great fun!

 

 

Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?
Choffe: One EP: ‘Confronted’, one single: ‘Alligator’ and one full album: ‘Ignition’.

 

 

Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?
Choffe: It contains something for everyone that’s into metal music. Thrash, groove, death, punk, ambient, you name it! But we don’t get lost in the madness of genres, all songs have a natural flow to them and the listener will probably never feel confused.
Aron: Well, truth be known, some people actually get a little confused.

 

Summon: Do you have any side projects?
Choffe: Yes, most of us have.
Aron: Yes. Nothing special though (yet!).

 

 

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?
Choffe: Pantera, Opeth, Devin Townsend, Meshuggah, ABBA, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Soilwork and of course classical stuff.
Aron: System of a Down, Pearl Jam, Philemon Arthur & The Dung.

 

 

Summon: Which current bands?
Choffe: Pick any of the above.
Aron: Except ABBA and Pantera. They’re not very current.

Summon: What is the band like when you play live?
Choffe: Very alive! Aron has been said to have energy like a power plant, and the rest of us aren’t far behind!

 

 

Summon: Have you guys ever played in another country?
Choffe: No, not yet, though there have been offers.
Aron: We’ll try to work out the logistics soon enough!

 

 

Summon: How big of crowd shows up at shows usually?
Choffe: It depends on the venue, we’ve played for everything between 20 to 700 people.

 

 

Summon: How is the crowd response when you play?
Choffe: They’re usually fantastic. I’m surprised each time how much energy they have!
Aron: Kids have the most energy. And really drunk adults, at least for a while.

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?
Choffe: Decent. Not as good as the Swedish scene though. Too much image and too little artistic ambition.
Aron: Bold statement there! There are some really good US bands. Wolves in the Throne Room and Job for a Cowboy, for example.

 

 

Summon: What do you think of the Overseas scenes?
Choffe: It’s the best, especially the Scandinavian.

 

 

Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal/death metal bands?
Choffe: Are there any new good one’s out there? Gojira perhaps…
Aron: Kvelertak!

 

 

Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?
Aron: Right now!
Choffe: We do it all the time!

 

 

Summon: What does the future hold for the band??
Choffe: Lots of drugs and hookers I suppose. That’s the goal right? Or touring the world, I don’t know.
Aron: Or maybe just something boring, like continue to make music? Time will tell.
