Ogotay Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?

Firstly, I'd like to welcome all the readers.
Ogotay the band, though maybe not well-known, consists of
following musicians: Gufi, guitar, Mess Age; Pieczar, guitar,
Fulcrum; Simon, drums, Pandemonium; and SVierszcz, bass and vocals,

2. How would you describe your musical sound?

Death metal. If anyone's interested in rating our music, feel invited to check out our profiles at reverbnation, soundcloud and youtube.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Since Yattering I've been writing about pathologies of our society. In Ogotay I pay much attention to accentuate the decline of the civilization.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
Ogotay was a man who called himself a god. It's taken form the comic book series Thorgal. Ogotay is the bloodthirsty master of QA people in pre-columbian era.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
For the time being we're playing in Poland only. We're focusing on production of our new single 'Bastards and Orphans' and next album.

6. Do you have any touring plans for the new release?
For the time being we're playing in Poland only. We're focusing on production of our new single 'Bastards and Orphans' and next album.

7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been  to your music by fans of death metal?
These are the roumors mainly the journalists are interested in. Bands come and go, obviously there's a lot of them around. It may be only your impression that at certain moment there's more bands of a certain genre, I don't see it that way.

8. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
According to my knowledge, only Pandemonium still exists out of our previous bands. Personally I promote Yattering as a brand by selling our t-shirts for example.

9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
You can judge by yourself while listening to our new single soon. It's gonna be as brutal as always.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
If I had to choose my guru, It'd be Devin Townsend. Besides, I listen to many different kinds of music and I doubt that Ogotay could take any inspirations from very 'light' Massive Attack, Hybrid or Muse. I'd rather want you to judge by yourself after the new material is released, and then compare our style to other bands.

11. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
I am a physiotherapist interested in sniper military units.

12. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

Thank you for your time and see you at our concerts.
