A few questions - interview with death metal band from Chile - ONSLAUGHT KOMMAND.

Recenze/review - ONSLAUGHT KOMMAND - Demo I (2022):

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

Onslaught Kommand was formed in 2022, a year in which most of the members of the band were not in a really active and dedicated band, so the decision to form Onslaught Kommand was mainly to remain active in what moves us and satisfy our thirst to create new abominations. Onslaught Kommand is totally focused on making devilish, sick and extreme music, both in the instrumental and in the voices and lyrics. Onslaught Kommand is a obscure Death/Grind (or Black/Death/Grindcore as others may call it) influenced by the sickest sounds of each style.

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

This demo was recorded, mixed and mastered by ourselves. The recording conditions were precise to achieve the sound we wanted and we’re satisfied with it.

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

The first edition of the ‘‘Onslaught Kommand‘‘ demo was release by Godz ov War label from Poland, which released 66 copies of the demo on Cassette and we consider it to have been a great job by everyone involved. At the end of 2022, Death Division Rituals will be in charge of the second edition of the demo, which consists of 111 copies on Cassette. And finally, the Mexican label Iron, Blood and Death Corporation will release a CD edition of the demo and these will be 300 copies.

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

The lyrics are mainly done by SexMilitia based on the ideas we come up with together. These are mainly focused on gore, demons, real extreme situations, explicit violence, humiliation, perversions, among others.

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 art was a joint effort with Daniel Hermosilla (NoxFragor), we gave him the parameters and ideas and he was able to capture it satisfactorily. As for the websites and social networks of the band, we are not interested.

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?

We had the opportunity to start a conversation with the owner of the Godz ov War label, who was very interested in the music we are making, since we take that forgotten part of the European old school related to Death Metal and derivatives. The label offered us a limited number of copies on tape and we thought it was excellent, so we started working together, he for the production part and us for the design part, in addition to the musical part obviously. Regarding the last question, we are very satisfied with the work of Godz ov War Productions! It is a great label and very serious, there is a very fluid communication between all the parties and that surprises us in a good way.

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

The truth is that we do not idolize any band, obviously we listen to many bands within what is death metal, black metal and grindcore but I would not call it idolizing. However, in one way or another, the influence of some bands is noticeable in the compositions but it is only a product of what we hear, we are not trying to trace riffs or similar rhythms, it just flows and that's it. We are more focused on making a good mix between styles than pigeonholing ourselves into some specific bands.

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

We send a sample to some labels of our interest. The response was very positive, although due to the global economic situation, the labels are releasing fewer and fewer bands, although we are more than satisfied and motivated with the editions that the Onslaught Kommand debut demo has and will have!

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 live yet. In any case, if we are asked to play an event that we find appropriate, WE WILL DO IT!

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

Right now we are mainly focused on our debut album which is in the process of recording and mixing, while we keep writing and rehearsing new songs, we have no rest!

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

Thanx for the interview.
