DOMANDE A CURA DI LOREDANA GARRA

 

Hi! Altars of rebellion, what is the meaning behind the name?

 

Altars of rebellion representa un estado en contra de la opresion en la que el ser humano ha sido gran protagonista a nivel individual y colectivo pues la revelacion implica libertad de pensamiento libre de dogmas religiones y politicas. 

 

Altars of rebellion represents a state against oppression in which the human being has been a great protagonist at the individual and collective level since the revelation implies freedom of free thought of dogmas religions and politics.

 

For those that may discovering your music now, can you tell us what is changed from your beginning in 2007 as a black metal band, then death metal, and today: extrem hybrid metal?

 

Creo que el genero incorporado obedece a la mezcla continua de todos estos elementos, no quizimos encacillarnos en un solo generos pues sabemos que nuestras influencias musicales son amplias por ahora seguimos en la busqueda de nuestro propio sonido algo que sea del sello de altars of rebellion.

 

I think that the built-in genre obeys to the continuous mix of all these elements, we do not get stuck in a single genre because we know that our musical influences are wide for now we continue in the search of our own sound something that is of the seal of altars of rebellion.

 

Thinking about your past influences, which bands were your most inspiring?

 

Claro que si, existen muchas bandas que nos marcaron un camino a seguir, estas son Dimmu Borgir , Death, Septicflesh, Cradle Of Filth (En Sus Inicios) Canibal Corpse, Deicide, Anorexia Nervosa, Covenant  Debo Mencionar Que La Musica Clasica Tuvo Mucho Que Ver (Bach, Vivaldi, Chopin, Rachmaminoff, Betthoven, Berlioz, Wagner). 

 

Of course, there are many bands that marked a way forward, these Are Dimmu Borgir, Death, Septicflesh, Cradle Of Filth (In Its Beginners) Canibal Corpse, Deicide, Anorexia Nervosa, Covenant Should Mention That Classical Music Had Too Much See (Bach, Vivaldi, Chopin, Rachmaminoff, Betthoven, Berlioz, Wagne).

 

You've shared the stage with important international bands as dark funeral, mortal sin, inquisition,... At what point did you think you were in your career?

 

Compartir tarima con bandas tan grandes es una experiencia enriquecedora, conocemos de primera mano el nivel que tienes estas bandas y para nosotros son un punto de inicio para trabajar mas duro, mas alla de ello creemos que la humildad como banda juega un papel muy importante pues aun nos falta mucho camino por recorrer, a sido un punto muy acertado compartir escenario con bandas grande de hecho el 2 de junio estaremos junto a Vader y thy anticrhist seguimos trabajando en base a lo que hacemos ese es nuestro punto de partida para mejorar.

 

Sharing stage with such big bands is an enriching experience, we know first hand the level you have these bands and for us they are a starting point to work harder, beyond that we believe that humility as a band plays a very important role we still have a long way to go, it has been a very successful point to share the stage with big bands in fact on June 2 we will be together with Vader and thy anticrhist we continue working based on what we do that is our starting point to improve.

 

How many albums have you published? And how much are you individually satisfied by each of them?

 

Hasta la fecha tenemos 3 albumes publicados. Creo que la transicion por la que paso Altars of rebellion ha sido inmensa pues en cada album se nota que fuimos mejorando tanto en lo musical como en lo lirico, seguimos en la busqueda de ese sonido que certifica y consolide a altars of rebellion, hasta el momneto todo ha sido magnifico y no puedo esperar por lo que suceda mas alla.  

 

To date we have 3 albums published. I think the transition through which Altars of rebellion happened has been immense because in each album you can see that we were improving both in the musical and in the lyrical, we continue in the search for that sound that certifies and consolidates altars of rebellion, until the moment everything has been magnificent and I can not wait for what happens beyond.

 

You are working in composition for a new album, what can you anticipate about it?

 

Claro que si, estamos trabajando en un nuevo trabajo cuya tematica seran los llamados pecados capitales, cada cancion tiene un pecado capital, realmente estoy emocionado por que han surgido cosas interesantes e incluso podriamos contar con colaboraciones de musicos de gran renombre para la elaboracion de este album, seguramente haremos que todo se de y podamos compartir con ustedes un trabajo a la altura de nuestros fans y el publico en general.

What is the most challenging part of writing the music?

 

Bueno lo que se pretende mantener en lo compositivo es aquella esencia black metal que nos dio a conocer mas sin embargo hemos trabajo mucho sobre idea planteadas a partir del Death metal, siempre somos abiertos a experimentar nuevos sonidos, en cuanto a la parte lirica el anterior album se utilizo una linea conceptual y queremos seguir manejando este modelo pero ahora bajo otra tematica, siempre hay algo sobre lo que escribir por lo que en temas de escritura no sido inconveniente trabajar en ello. 

 

Well what is intended to maintain the composition is that black metal essence that gave us more knowledge, but we have worked a lot on ideas raised from Death Metal, we are always open to experience new sounds, in terms of the lyric part the previous album we used a conceptual line and we want to continue managing this model but now under another theme, there is always something to write about, so in writing issues it was not inconvenient to work on it.

 

Who handles the songwriting? Where does it come from?

 

La escritura y composicion es maneja actualmente por Fernando khristos quien anteriormente se dedicaba a tocar los teclados, el sera nuestro nuevo frontman y seguira al frente de la composicion musical y las liricas, como te decia existe mucha tematica que puede ser abarcada  partiendo de algo conceptual buscamos que cada cancion este unida a la otra y que quien la escucha sienta y se sumerja en la historia que estamos contando. 

 

The writing and composition is currently handled by Fernando Khristos who previously was dedicated to playing keyboards, he will be our new frontman and will continue to lead the musical composition and lyrics, as he told you there is a lot of themes that can be covered starting from something conceptual we seek that each song be linked to the other and that the listener feels and immerses himself in the story we are telling.

 

And what about your first professional video clip?

 

Nuestro primer video comenzara con el nuevo trabajo discografico, seremos muy cuidadosos con escoger la cancion de nuestro primer video clip queremos que sea algo muy bueno visualmente hablando.
