A few questions – interview with death/doom metal band from USA - BESTIALORD.

Answered Mark Anderson.

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

Bestialord is a metal band Wichita, Kansas. We formed the in October 2016. Our style is kind of a hybrid. Our foundation is definitely Doom but there is a good bit of Death and Thrash mixed in as well.

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

We recorded the album at Red Cat Recording Company in Peck, Kansas. Very nice studio and a great environment to work in. Luke Wallace was the engineer on the project and also co-produced. 


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

It is a limited 500 CD pressing, jewel case, vinyl style CD, with a 12 page booklet. It is also available in digital.

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

I wrote the lyrics. The music always comes first, the lyrics usually hit me while I'm watching a movie or reading. H.P. Lovecraft was a major influence on this album. There are also songs inspired by Pinhead from Hellraiser, ultimate revenge, apocalypse, and Ingrid Pitt's portrayal of Mircalla in The Vampire Lovers.


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? 

The band presented some ideas we had for a logo to a graphic artist we know named Scott Peters and he made some tweaks that lead to the final rendering. Our cover art was done by Erskine Designs. At present we're operating solely from our Facebook page. It's really been an excellent tool in terms of getting our name out there and making contacts.

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?

Satanath Records/Symbol of Domination Prod. and Cimmerian Shade Recordings co-released the album. Satanath Records released a previous project I was involved with and we were very happy with their work. Cimmerian Shade Recordings already had a relationship with them so it just made sense. We’ve been very pleased with them, they’ve been great to work with.



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

Our main influences would be bands like Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Manilla Road, Morbid Angel, Candlemass, Venom, Death, Merciful Fate, etc. Too many to name really. Horror films as well as horror and occult literature are also a huge inspiration.

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

We had some positive response from other labels but we decided to go with Satanath and Cimmerian Shade pretty early on in the process.


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? 

We haven’t played any gigs yet, hopefully we'll be getting some shows together in the near future. I don’t really have a preference between clubs or festivals, both are equally cool. 

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

Writing and recording are our top priorities at present. Honestly we've never discussed any specific goals for this band. We just really enjoy working together and making music.

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

We can always be contacted through our Facebook page.

Thanx for the interview.

Thanks for the interview and support. Very much appreciated. Cheers!\m/!
