1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
GAEREA is as unexpected as needed to solve our vision for this sick and mental urban space we are inserted in. We're caged on the same jail as other people, like you and doesn't matter how hard you pray to your idol or fight against the system, you'll never win. We are the half faced human demon that grows inside this oppressed animals we are.
2.You have an ep coming out in November, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
We wanted to create a wall of sound. A wall that could hit the audience in the most strong way we could imagine. Thats how GAEREA sounds.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Narcisism, Self Destruction, Misanthropy, Mental Numbness
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Gaerea'?
We wanted to create and raise a name that could represent what we do. A name that could only mean us, and that's what we did. We created GAEREA.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
The band never played live, yet.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We have many things to announce when releasing the EP, including some special live appearances.
7.The ep is coming out on 'Everlasting Spew Records', are you happy with the support that they have given you so far?
We couldn't be more proud of the fantastic team they are. Mixing that with the approach and experience of our manager Tito Vespasiani, you get total security and the job is done properly and creatively. Everlasting Spew Records was the best option on the table after some months getting interested labels on the mail and we took it without thinking twice.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
So far, not bad. Beyond our expectations, some people really seem to like it and that surprises us in an interesting way. We are not a trendy group or a celebrity act that people love these days just because the next dude followed the taste of the other. If the audience really likes us, we'll make sure they know what they really like on us. It's not about music anymore. It's a lot more than that.
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Too soon to think about the further step. Though, we know what we want to achieve with this first chapter that will be only concluded with the next release. For now, we'll seed this creation and spread the word about the beast that will born from it.
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We are a lot more influenced by visual art rather than music itself. Even the big city and the machine that makes everything work is something that influenced us and will continue to develop in further creations. We create music that would be the perfect soundtrack for the visuals we first imagined for this first step. Only after the sketching of what we want to see and feel about the art, music comes and plays its part on our message.
11.How would you describe your views on Occultism?
We couldn't care less about it.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
We are GAEREA. Expect us.
