Few questions – interview with death metal band from Croatia - HEREZA.

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.?

-Hey there! We are HerezA and we play death metal punk. We are two man band at the moment. Ivan is a vocalist/ lyricist and my name is Slobodan and I play all the instruments in the band, doing backing vocals and write lyrics as well. 

Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

- We recorded our new album „I Become Death“ in my room. A good friend of mine was in charge of recording it. His name is Denis. And my other friend, Mario was in charge of mixing and mastering.


How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?

- I think there was 600 copies on the CD. I am not sure about the number of the copies tho.

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with? 

- I wrote majority of the lyrics for this album and they are all about death, destruction, chaos, war... all the positive stuff.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important? 

- Our good friend from All Things Rotten design, Andrej made the logo and cover art for the debut album „Misanthrope“. Art work for second album was done by Maciej Kamuda.

You can find us on facebook, youtube and bandcamp. 

In today’s world, yes. Because most of the people are on social media so you have to be there as well to spread the word about yourself.


Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you?

- Godz Ov War Productions from Poland released our second album. Why? Because they were the only ones interested in releasing it. Haha! 

We are very satisfied with them and I hope that we will continue our cooperation.

Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

- We idolize mostly death metal bands but there are also black, thrash, hardcore, grind, punk, crust, d-beat bands... Mix of what we listen to is what we make as HerezA.

Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

- Yes we did. Godz Ov War Productions signed us and released the album.

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best? 

- Since we are two man band, we didn’t play any gigs yet but we hope that in a near future we wll find some musicians to play with.


What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?

- First, to stay active as long as possible and to top our previous releases. Then, to find other musicians to play with and play live shows as much as possible. 

Nothing much. Just to enjoy making and playing music, traveling, meeting new people, visiting new places and having fun most of the time. No big goals for me personally.

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?
