Hi, we are currently in the campaign Trauma latest release, that album "Invisible Reality", which 03.06.2016 had its official premiere on the market, thanks to Deformeathing rec. This is a reissue of the first material that we recorded under the name Trauma in May 1992. Originally it was officially released in 1993, effort Loud Out rec / Morbid Noizz prod. and received a lot of favorable reviews in many European magazines such as Close UP, Metal Hammer, Decibels Storm, Aartschock etc. I wonder how the years will be received this stuff because in my opinion is still valid and interesting. At the moment, as you can see the priority is to promote the new release and you focus all of our attention at this point.
2.Your last full length was released 3 years ago, how would you describe the musical style of the current music?
We are a mature band and we remain in constant battle for almost three decades. The development of our music takes place in a natural way, without establishing in advance what will be the final effect of the work on each of the next album. Trauma many years has developed its own character and style. On the basis of years we put our musical structures which can be heard on albums with the logo of Trauma. From the beginning, we are fascinated by death metal and this is the basis from which everything begins. We are not afraid of new challenges and transpose our soil influences from other varieties of metal and even beyond. For us the most important thing is to create music which finally kicking ass and sounded coherent. I am anxious to board traumas have considerable emotional and sounded interesting, and surprisingly professional. Welcome to the bandcamp Trauma and you will see what I mean. It is there to listen to more than 10 releases, which create over the 28 years of the band.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects and subjects that you have explored over the years with your music?
Each text is something individual and writing about all the subjects at the same time does not make sense to me. I refer interested and feel at the same time to visit the official website of Trauma, where all the texts and you can read them without a problem at the same time listening to the individual tracks on bandcampie and then the text will not be divorced from the context.
4.Originally the band was known as 'Thanatos' then 'Detox Mansion' before settling on the current name, what was the cause of the name changes and also the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Trauma'?
From May 1988 years we was exist as Thanatos and under this banner we made two great demos, which allowed us to appear on the underground scene, but at that time his greatest triumphs was referring Dutch Thanatos. From our perspective, there was no point continue to operate under the same banner, because everywhere we associated with the Dutch. We wanted to act on its own, so we abandoned definitely the sign of Thanatos. Long could not decide on a new name and Detox Mansion was only a proposal. Finally, we decided on it, but the information leaked and as it turns out it was enough to be remembered about this today. In May, 1992 we changed our name to Trauma under the influence of "The Trauma" with sensational plate group Pestilence "Consuming Impulse". This album at that time we are very inspired and probably why we decided to use the name Trauma.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Difficult question because we played a lot of great concerts over the years. We played both on the big summer festivals and small clubs, squeezing is often the scene of the surface of the bar hehe. I think, however. That's not a prestigious gig in good company, or one with high gauze musicians are a guarantee of a successful concert. This is up maniax who roll bloody battle at the scene, giving it everything. The climate, the atmosphere and agreeing fans is the most important element during each concert.
You ask about our image? Hm ... we are on this issue traditionalists and remind dress Tolkien's creatures, do not use a corpse-paintu, because I feel that bad for the complexion :) For me, music is always top priority and not dressing up someone in there.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
In June we played well as a series of concerts promoting this release but that we now have Euro 2016 in France to sit in front of TV as a large part of Europeans watching the struggling football teams. After the holidays are resuming concerts of the "Invisible Reality Tour 2016" to October, we have already booked a concert.
7.A year ago you where a part of a split with 'Offence', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participted on the album?
This is a very solid band with whom we shared the stage a few times, we know each other for several years and we have a good relationship. I like their simple message and music in which I hear the passion for metal, which is probably the most important issue in the music-making. The truth is that if Offensce was a weak team would not be the split in this form.
8.The band has been around for at least 3 decades, what is it that motivates you to keep going after all of these years?
In fact, it is a long time and you can not hide it. Sometimes he is in disbelief how fast the time flew. We play non-stop and never even suspended operations even for a moment. In this context, it is almost a feat hehe. I could now speak incredible things bleblebleble but really still like to play together sample, or concerts, to get away from the daily routine, responsibilities, and sometimes the problems that can sometimes overwhelm anyone. There is not here any philosophy or perhaps a passion for music it is. Anyway, we are in good shape and stagger forward to new challenges.
9.Recently you 1991 and 1992 promo's and demo's where re-issued as a single album, what are your thoughts on the final product?
I am absolutely satisfied primarily from the fact that the re-release of "Invisible Reality" and forms prepared by Deformeathing prod .. This time everything has been done according to our guidelines and views. We felt the full support of publishers and most importantly full of confidence. The original 1993 edition was not without errors, material besides appeared on a tape recorder. I'm glad if this was not the oldest material Trauma, lived to see the reissue, it is better visuals and bonuses. I personally keep fun in the hands of great Cd released and I admit that I look forward also to the limited, exclusive release in a few days, and also on cassette and vinyl, which will appear on the market in the fall, also with the logo Deformeathig prod.
10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
It is never so that your music will satisfy the tastes of the whole population maniax the world. It just does not happen in the case of each team. Generally, however, the music Trauma is taken extremely positive and even with a large dose of enthusiasm. Better yet convinced of the value of Trauma listening to our music, not the words that I could on it now speak and so I refer you once again to bandcamp Trauma.
11.When can we expect new music and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We have no pressure from the new album and it gives us advisable in such a situation, comfort. When it is luck and the desire to create, in effect, and good music. Making material strength never goes well enough. Therefore, we beware of cold and calculating rutyniarstwa that kill in my opinion, spontaneous energy and drowns instinct creating muse at a high level. So for calm, I will add that the successor "Karma Obscura" is created for a long time and the lion's share of the new album is ready. However, it will record when the material is 100% complete. The disc is formed in a natural process and nothing is going to accelerate to just not screw up the good work we have done so far.
As I see music Trauma in the future? I have not the slightest idea, and I want to stay that way. Everything depends on what the future holds and how imprinting its mark on all of us.
12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
I like a lot of things, different style and I'm all in all a very open man, not just musically. For many years, I also played with the drummer in the band Trauma Lafayn, who presented completely different style than our native formation and gave us a lot of satisfaction. In compiling my project I have plenty of my own, have not yet finished but I hope that one day will show it to the world. What inspires me today? Designates one team because tomorrow will probably be a different band. We all complain about the lack of new inspiration but I'm still finds plenty of fantastic metal music, and more. I grew up on the old Slayer and Metallica, and to this day I love Morbid Angel, Gorefest, Vader, Nile, Immolation, Vital Remains, Hate Eternal and Deicide and Suffocation. I loved Nevermore, At The Gates, Dissection and a whole lot of Swedish meat. I could go on and on. All these bands and, of course, many other still inspire me.
13.What are some of your non musical interests?
Besides the music is a little computer graphics. This is my second passion, so that also in some way fulfill. Designing album covers, posters, sometimes merch. I'm not a professional, and everything I do in this matter is formed for the purpose of Trauma. Sometimes I like to boil too but I would not call this class passion. He is interested in history but also almost exclusively in the second world war.
14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
I wanted to say just one thing - support the underground because only through your interest it works. Stay traumatized !!!!
