Hi guys! Give a brief history of Hypnotheticall, music style, and the members.
Hypnotheticall debut in 2002 with “In Need Of A God?”, self-produced demo followed by “Thorns” in 2003 and “Fragments Of Truth” in 2006. In 2009 the first official full-length album “Dead World” was released for INSANITY RECORDS , in 2013 the second album “A Farewell To Gravity” for LOGIC(IL)LOGIC! Since 2002 the band has suffered many changes of line-up, of songwriting, consequently has undergone several revolutions, however the style of the band has evolved in a natural way, preserving a certain refinement in form and arrangements as a distinctive element! The current line-up, with the release of the single “Awake(ning)”, is composed by Giuseppe Zaupa, guitarist and founder of the band, the undersigned Luca Capalbo, active since 2008 with the band, Davide Pellichero on vocals and Giulio Cariolato on the drums, the two new Hypnoboys who made the rebirth of the band possible!
Give in more detail, some information about your coming album “Synchreality”?
SYNCHREALITY is the result of an intense and constant team work! 10 songs that represent a real exploration of human nature and its contradictions! Over time we have become aware of the circularity of the themes and of a certain fluidity and immediacy that links all tracks and suggests the idea of ??a concept where the Synchreality is the scenario to explore, to cross! The songs, however, also live of their own life, therefore it is also aimed at those who, in music, love the ability to synthesize and songs like “The Spell” or “Rumors” are an example!
Hypnotheticall has signed with Revalve records, tell more about that?
We are very happy and honored to have signed for REVALVE RECORDS, they are guys who work hard and who, as true music fans, support the underground with great dedication, allowing bands like ours to gain more credibility! They’re doing a wonderful promotional work, they believe in HYPNOTHETICALL like no other label before! We thank them a lot!
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
As I said before SYNCHREALITY is a more immediate but at the same time deeper record. The compositions have undergone a choral arrangement process. “Dead World” was a superlative album, full of time changes and crazy scores, full of emotions, more difficult, if we want. The talent of Paolo Veronese, the band’s first drummer, prevailed, he gave a strong imprinting to our style. SYNCHREALITY represents for us the natural evolution of a band that wants to grow.
What inspires Hypnotheticall music and lyric writing? What does Hypnotheticall lyrics talk about?
The reality and the changes that shake it! The polarity of feelings, the search for identity in the ocean of cyberspace! Universal themes, which concern us all.
Do you play live often? Do you like abroad gigs?
We have worked hard to get to SYNCHREALITY, we are planning a tour, everything depends on the responses to the album! The live side fascinates us so much, the concerts are vital for us, we are also working to ensure shows of great impact both visually and from the sound point of view! The goal is to raise more and more the intensity level of our proposal!
How often does the band practice and work on new material?
It’s a non-mechanical process, the compositions take shape over time, they are subjected to careful analysis by all 4 of us, and as we rehearsal we make changes, trying to centralize our individual talents in the right direction, without drowning in the inevitable egocentrism of the ones who propose the idea! It’s not easy but we succeeded!
How did the band come up with the name Hypnotheticall and tell what does it means for you?
HYPNOTHETICALL is a unique name, you cannot confuse it with anyone else! It is an idea of Giuseppe Zaupa, the founder, inspired by the word “hypothetical”, title of an album by Threshold, British progressive metal band. The result is a curious anagram of THE HYPNOTIC CALL, which fits prefectly our music!!! HYPNOTHETICALL, the secret is unveiled!!!
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
Our goal is to conquer as many hearts as possible and of course to play in front of as many people as possible! We trust in the support of our label and our booking agency, but our fate is decided by the fans! We dedicate this album to them and to all of you!
