2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?



Nazghor: This sound is more clear and less aggressive. It felt like we needed this sound since it has so many melodies and thus we summoned sound technician Jaime to lend a touch on it. Even thou this album is different in a way from its predecessors, still has that Nazghor ingredients that is necessary for a record of this band. We are very satisfied with the final product



3. In 3 years you have put out 5 albums, do you put a great amount of time and effort into the band?
