Hi! Give a brief history of Even Vast, music style, and the members.
Even Vast formed in 1998 and have released three albums and three mcd/singles in this time.
After a pause of 9 years Even Vast have returned, now based in England with a new line up and a new sludge/stoner/doom sound. The line up of “Warped Existence” album (out on March 2019) is: Luca Martello – Guitar/ Chris Taylor – Lead Vocals/ Nicholas Mark Roe – Drums/ Steve Kilpatrick – Bass/ Alessandro D’Arcangeli – Sax/Chorus.
Give in more detail, some information about your forthcoming album?
Everything started with the remix of the Outsleeping album in 2015 (originally released 2003 Mausoleum Records) and after 3 years we are here with a completely new album and a new sound direction for Even vast.
The album has been recorded in Salford at NoiseBoy Studios and mixed/mastered in Nottingham at MajorOak Audio.
Even Vast has signed with The Goatmancer, tell more about that?
Contact was made with Goatmancer Records to see if they would be interested in working together, and after reviewing the album they agreed to sign the band.
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
The first album “Hear Me Out” was released in 1999 and the sound was more gothic/doom with female vocals and synth. The new album “Warped Existence” has a completely new line up and sound, more stoner rock/sludge with a quirky sax.
What inspires Even Vast music and lyric writing? What does Even Vast lyrics talk about?
Chris: Lyrical themes are about the return to nature in today’s world driven by technology, money and greed.
Do you play live often? Do you like abroad gigs?
We would like to increase the live aspect in 2019 (having just finished a mini tour in England with Nibiru). More news coming soon.
How often does the band practice and work on new material?
We practice twice a week for new songs and live gigs.
How did the band come up with the name Even Vast and tell what does it means for you?
I picked up the name from the lyrics of “Dimension Hatross” Voivod. The name for me means no barriers to the sound/style of the band, like with the project Even More Vast (post/punk).
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
To release the second single “Somebody” on 27 December and prepare for the release party in Nottingham on 20 April.
