Hi! Tell me about SWALLOWING THE WEAK. Why did you decide to name the band with such title? What kind of ideas do you explore?
I found that sentece on my favourite album Death will Reign of IMPENDING DOOM. Till nowdays I think I didnt hear better composed and released deathcore or death metal album, I’ve orderd one tshirt from merchandise and on back was just this ,,swallowing the weak,, and I said to myself; why I didnnt get it before? Its sick, suits to the music and vibes. I had few crushing names in the pocked but thata one was the best.
Devourer Of Souls album was released on November 6th. How does that make you feel? Do you feel you have put album into masses without any wishes to change something now?
I liked to change lot of things but its too late. Next album will be quite different. Most mature.
Tell me more about Devourer Of Souls? Album ideas etc…
Its hard to say now, have a lot of ideas, start to record them right now, we’ll see, perhaps next year I’ll be redy with new suff, devorer is a blend of in my opinion best deathcore breakdownes and riffs or reather copies))) which I found in genere.obviously interpretated to my vision. Maybe is not brilliant but this is not my last word)))
Where do you take all inspiration from?
If its about the music, first something grows in my mind and after i’ll get may axe and seems it was some shit)))) And after i”ll try that shit turn in diamond. Usually it seems like that). If abot the lyrics, I”ll go on playground with my children. They play and I write. best result; 2 texts on 1 trip).
In your opinion, what is the best way to define SWALLOWING THE WEAK’s sound?
Just strong, hard, heavy, mature, deathcore. Dont chase the fame. Do my work. whats in in my heart and mind).
So, are you on hiatus now, just relaxed and looking for album feedbacks, or did you started to compose new stuff immediately?
Everything along. Thinkin about new stuff, try wth spirit of metal and encyclopedia metallum (have to finish some special collegue). Intervews. Mostly look after of all my children. I’m one man army (have no manager) so embrance to evrything is not easy, but I’m preaparing new stuff).
What are your main musical influences? How huge is their influence in your sound?
Mostly stars WHITECHAPEL, AVERSIONS CROWN, TAIM, they demiurgs, but everyday I pay attencion check all new suff on the world. dont miss anyone) U can my fb page) I share everything what have some value almost everyday.
