A few questions - interview with death/thrash metal band from Greece - DEATHCRAEFT.

Recenze/review - DEATHCRAEFT - On Human Devolution (2020):

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

Hi, first of all we'd like to thank you for reviewing our debut album and for your good words. Deathcraeft was founded in 2016 and the style that mostly characterizes would be all-metal crossover, trying to borrow elements form various styles of metal. 

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

The album was recorded at Infinite Loop music studio - run by our guitarist and founding member Kostas Kalampokas - and is located in Ioannina, Greece. In charge was Kostas who did all the rec. engineering and mixing. The mastering was done by Peter In de Betou in Sweden. 


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

Due to the pandemic and the situation in general - where doing concerts is out of the question - we released it in a limited number of Cds available through deathcraeft.bandcamp.com. Also, it was released digitally on all major streaming platforms (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon music etc). Our future plans include realeasing it on vinyl. 

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

The lyrics were written by our guitarist Kostas who also composed all the music. It is a concept album that uses as a background for the story the Cthulhu Mythos created by writer H.P.Lovecraft, but mainly the lyrics have to do with sociopolitical issues humanity is facing throughout its existence. 


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 logo was created by Kostas and recently we had the chance of perfecting it with the help of graphic designer Giannis Nakos from Remedy Art Design who has worked with many metal bands. The social networks are very importand nowdays to promote a band. But, it takes a lot of time because there is much stuff out there - we are still learning and hoping to get better. It is a valuable tool to communicate with the fans. 

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? 

It is self-released because to get a good label behind you, you need to establish yourself first – draw their attention. So, we decided to self-release it and when we have our next album ready start searching for a label to represent us. 


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

We started listening to metal in the 80's so bands from that era are number one for us. These bands include Testament, Megadeth, Forbidden, Helloween, Death and in general bands that produced great music back then. 

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

We send it to one or two – didn't get a response and lost interest. When a band is new we have to do the hard work ourselves and if we do it right, the labels will follow. 


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? 

The line-up was completed only recently and during the pandemic, so we didn't have the chance to play live yet, but we are very eager to, when things get better. 

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

Just play metal music, have the chance to play in concerts and meet people who love listening to metal. Our next step is start writing the next album. I believe we will be ready to get into the studio during Spring of 2021. 

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

Fans can visit our Deathcraeft account on facebook, YouTube, Spotify and bandcamp and soon we will have our official website up and running. 

Thanx for the interview. 

Thank you for the support!
