Resurrection Interview

Answers were given by Dawid Piechociński on behalf of whole band

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

We are just bunch of guys, who were connected by love to very heavy music, and we wanted to create something on our own. That's how Resurrection was created. We had some personal changes in the past. At the beginning we were trio. Then we replaced our first drummer with Krzysztof Klingbein, beacause we wanted to play faster. After some time we added Roman Brzeziński as guitarist, because Michał Badowski wanted some company (laugh) and Igor Bohuszyński as vocalist, because our bass player Dawid Piechociński wanted to focus on playing and not singing. Before „Betrayed By God” we recorded 4-track demo „Death is Necessary”, but it sounds more like thrash metal than death metal and doesn't describe us as well as our long play.

2.How would you describe your musical sound?

For me it's death metal with some melodic rhythms in it that derived from ours thrash origins, but I don't like categorize music, if I listen to it and enjoying it, that means it's good.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Our lyrics are about war, religion and human weakness. We just want to write about things, which are interesting for us. We can’t hide scepticism and our point of view for some things.

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

You know, nowadays there is no more hype on metal music like in the 80s. When we started in our hometown, there weren't so many bands. We wanted to influence people to start playing. Some kind of „resurrection” to heavy music. And we think, we succeeded, there's a lot of bands right now.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We only played on local scenes near our hometown. We also played few open-air gigs. Every show is different and it's hard to choose the best. We just do furious headbaning on stage and look people moshing in front of us. It's very exciting and drives us to playing faster and heavier.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We are planning to do small tour in Poland. We would love to go abroad, but we don't have contacts and money to do this.

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

For now we are happy to release our album. In the future we for sure want to sign a contract. We want deliver our music to as many people as we can.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?

We received some feedback from other countries than Poland, from France, Czech Republic and Great Britain for example. All were positive and motivated us to composing our music. Also reviews are giving us high notes, so we think people likes our songs.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We want to try something more technical with crushing breakdowns and heavy riffs, but we still have to wait and see how it develops.

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?

Whole band loves to listen to Decapitated and I think this shaped our style. Except that we are listening to bands like Vader, Meshuggah, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Cannibal Corpse and some Machine Head. It's a mix of heavy and technical bands and I think that can be heard in our songs.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

We like partying and drinking a lot of beer and vodka (laugh). We are still studying, so it's taking a lot of our free time. But we all like basketball (except of Krzysztof, who is „professional” footballer). Most of our free time we spend with our friends, just hanging around.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

We want to thank all people who were supporting us. We hope „Betrayed By God” isn't our last album and you will hear us again in the future with even more powerful compositions. Stay tuned!
