Brzask Interview

1. . For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
We are five-piece black metal band from Szklarska Poręba in Poland. We play black metal with roots lying deep in 90's.

2.Recently you have released a demo, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style you went for on the recording?

All instruments and vocals were recorded in hut in the woods. We went for natural sounding recordings, so the drums were recorded in wooden room. Guitars were recorded as DI's and reamped in the same room as drums. It was nice lesson of engineering for us.

3.Your lyrics covering Sudetian Folklore, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in this topic?

The Sudetes are unusual mountains. This mountains span across Germany, Poland and Czechia. There are many legends, old architectural masterpieces and complex ecosystem here, which creates really unique atmosphere. We were growing up here and it influenced us strongly.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Brzask'?

"Brzask" means "Dawn" in Polish, and dawn seen from the mountainside can be breathtaking. So the name also fits our inspirations.

5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the demo cover?

Artwork shows Śnieżka - it's the highest peak of all Sudeten Moutains. The buildings located on the peak are meteorological observatory and St. Lawrence's Chapel. It has its own atmosphere, you should check it out! Especially in the winter.

6.Has the band done any live shows or this strictly a studio project?

No, we had booked shows, but current situation with covid effectively closed all doors. Although we are still working on live production and there's still hope, that we will be able perform soon.

7.So far very little is known about the band, do you prefer to keep a low profile?

We are just underground band so it feels right to keep it that way.

8.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

It depends on what label can offer to us, and what we can offer to label.
We'll see what future brings.

9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?

It was much more positive than we could ever expected.

10.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We have some tracks ready at this point it's just a draft. Still imperfect but judging by overall vibe of tracks our full length will be more
melodic and much more intense than the demo. Also we may release single or two in near future.

11.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?

Definitely Dissection! Also mighty Mayhem, some of us are really in love with Behmoth or more proggy stuff like Opeth.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thank you for the interview, and keep on blasting!
