1. Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
When we were done recording Memories of Sorrow, we couldn't wait to show our music so we released the digital edition. Fans became interested in the album and began to ask us about the physical release, so we started to contact with labels. We have also been working on a new album and producing a video clip of one of its songs. Currently we are rehearsing to present Memories of Sorrow album on November the 2nd in Madrid along with three other spanish black metal bands.
2.Recently you have released your first album, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction you have taken with this recording?
We wanted to create a common project within the atmospheric black metal genre that suited the taste of both. We have been working on previous projects together. We like dark, depressed and melancholic passages and melodies. Also try to mix loops from different parts of the song to give some obsessive environment, like going around in a padded cell.
3.The song lyrics cover Dystopian themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interests in this topic?
Our concept is centered in a post-apocalyptic and dystopian future, where survivors of a devastating earthquake in the center of the earth, struggle to survive in the most grim misery, between death, disease, wild clans, cannibalism and savagery. To us it’s a very appropriate context to tell stories that show the worst side of Man.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Wrong?
The word "Wrong" refers to a state of incorrectness, inefficiency or error in many contexts. Our country is going through a serious crisis that will last for many years. What better name than "Wrong" for a black metal band, which tells the worst of human behavior in an uncertain future in the midst of this collective pessimism?
5.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you planning on expanding the line up in the future?
We are happy with our current way of working. We are two musicians who complement each other well, so we don’t want to make the music with anyone else at the moment. Obviously for live shows will have session musicians.
6.The new album came out on Aphelion Productions, do you feel that they have done a lot for getting your name out there?
We believe that Ross from Aphelion works very hard and has done everything in his power to help with the release. Perhaps the promotion isn’t the strong point of Aphelion but it’s a great trader because Memories of Sorrow is available at major Internet dealers of this genre.
7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
The balance of acceptance has been generally positive. We have received by e-mail sincere greetings. The videos posted have many visitors, songs in bandcamp too and followers of social networks are increasing, the album it's being sold both digital and physical. We are glad.
8.What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
Phlegeton and Wormed will be on tour with the U.S. east coast from next week, presenting his latest album Exodromos. We recently finished the soundtrack and sound effects for video game #MindThief in our sound studio Delta314. We are finalizing the mixing and mastering of new album by Under Vultures. Also we are colaborating with Laura Diamond, a spanish fashion designer. We are making the song that will sound on her fashion show at Madrid Gothic Week.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
We want to continue in this line of production. The only difference from the first album is the tuning of the strings is a tone lower. We keep the dark and depressing passages, with parts of false hope. Regarding lyrics, we’ll continue telling stories in the terrible reality before described.
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
There are a lot of bands that influenced us by making Memories of Sorrow, some to mention: Craft, Blut Aus Nord, ColdWorld, Svartidauði, Enslaved, Shining, Old-Ulver, Bethlehem, Leviathan, Darkthrone, Agalloch, Lifelover, Altar of Plagues, Drudkh, Lunar Aurora, Wolves in the Throne Room, Abyssic Hate, Isvind, Krallice, Hans Zimmer...
