Intervju Mortillery: Htio bih zahvaliti svima na potpori i vidimo se na turneji! (english and croatian version)

by Metal Jacket

Mortillery, metal jacket magazineMortillery je thrash metal bend koji nam dolazi iz Kanade. Bend krase sirova energija, žestoki rifovi i ženski vokal. Bend izvrsno kombinira žestinu i melodiju, a kao uzore navode Judas Priest, Death Angel, Detente, Warfare i Holy Moses. Bend je upravo izdao svoj treći album i to nam je bio povod da napravimo intervju s njima. Za Metal Jacket Magazin govorio je gitarista bend Alex.

MJM:  Pozdrav Alex, možeš li predstaviti Mortillery našim čitateljima?

Alex: Pozdrav! Osnovani smo krajem 2008. godine uslijed nedostatka dobrih bendova koje smo htjeli gledati ovdje kod nas ( Edmonton, Kanada op.a.). Od tada smo imali sreću da sviramo nekoliko dobrih koncerata, potpišemo za Napalm records i izdamo tri albuma. Za sada smo zadovoljni.

MJM: Što znači Mortillery i zašto ste izabrali to ime?

Alex: Htjeli smo ime od jedne riječi i kao što vjerovatno znaš SVA imena su već zauzeta. Jedna od opcija za ime je bila Mortal Artillery, ali pošto smo htjeli jednu riječ za ime benda tako je nastalo Mortillery. Ne znači ništa više od toga (smijeh).

MJM: Kako bi opisao vašu glazbu?

Alex: Agresivna i melodična!

Mortillery, metal jacket magazineMJM: Vaš treći album “Shapeshifter” je upravo izašao. Možeš li nam reći nešto više o samom albumu?

Alex: Trebalo nam je vremena da konačno završimo album. Pisanje pjesama smo započeli 2013. godine, ali je zbog izmjena u sastavu i europske turneje pisanje palo u drugi plan te smo se koncentrirali na sviranje. Album je snimljen u Portlandu, Oregon od strane Joel Grind-a. Dva tjedna smo proveli snimajući kod njega,  a miks i mastering smo završili ovdje u Edmontonu sa Terry Paholek-om.

MJM: Koje je značenje imena albuma?

Alex: Nema neko značenje (smijeh). Nismo mogli naći bolje ime i odabrali smo ovo po istoimenoj pjesmi koja se nekako isticala u odnosu na druge.

MJM: Možeš li ovaj album usporediti sa vašim prijašnjim izdanjima?

Alex: Mislimo da smo ovaj album zvuči upravo onako kako bi mi htjeli da zvučimo i da prikazuje koliko smo napredovali u odnosu na naša prijašnja izdanja. I naši stariji albumi su odlični, ali ovaj je nešto najbolje što smo izdali do sada.

MJM: Koji su tvoji osobni favoriti na albumu?

Alex: Torture, Age of Stone, At the Gates.

MJM: Tko je radio omot albuma i što omot predstavlja?

Alex: Todd Rocket radi sve naše omote. Dali smo mu kompletnu umjetničku slobodu, ali on zna što mi želimo. Omot govori o unutarnjim promjenama koje nam se svima događaju.

MJM: O čemu govore vaši tekstovi?

Alex: Cara piše 99% tekstova i oni govore o stvarima koje su njoj interesantne kao što su kriptidi, biologija i različita stanja uma. Neke tekstove sam napisao ja i ono uglavnom govore o ratu, zlu i našoj post apokaliptičnoj budućnosti.

MJM: Ove jeseni idete na europsku turneju sa Suicidal Angels, Skull Fist i Evil Invaders. Što očekuješ od te turneje?

Alex: Otrovanje alkoholom i Rock´n´Roll!

MJM: Da li planirate nastupati na nekom od velikih festivala?

Alex: Ne za sada, ali možda slijedeće ljeto.

MJM: Koji su tvoji najdraži bendovi i tko je najviše utjecao na tebe?

Alex: Svi u bendu imaju različite uzore, ali moji su Detente, Broken Bones, Flotsam and Jetsam i rana Metallica.

MJM: Što nam možeš reći o metal sceni u Kanadi?

Alex: Scena je spremna da eksplodira! Dosta je povezana i izmiješana tako da se stalno događaju metal, punk i rockabily koncerti, te se svi međusobno podržavaju i odlaze jedni drugima na koncerte.

MJM: Koje je tvoje mišljenje o Thrash metal sceni?

Alex: Scena je dobra, ima puno Thrash bendova što znači da mogu pronaći mnogo dobrih bendova.

MJM: Gdje vidiš Mortillery za 10 godina?

Alex: Vjerovatno ćemo raditi isto samo ćemo biti bolje plaćeni za to (smijeh).

MJM:  Nešto za kraj?

Alex: Samo bih htio zahvaliti svima na potpori i vidimo se na turneji!

MJM: Hvala ti na intervjuu!

Alex: Hvala tebi!

(english version)

MJM: Hi Alex, can you introduce Mortillery to our readers?

Alex: Hey! We started in late 2008 due to the lack of sweet bands to go see here at home. Since then we have been lucky enough to have played some really sweet shows, signed with Napalm Records and released 3 albums world wide! So far so good!

MJM: What does Mortillery means and why have you choose that name?

Alex: We wanted a one word name and as you may know EVERY name is taken. One of the options was Mortal Artillery but since we wanted one word we came up with Mortillery. Doesnt really mean anything more than that haha.

MJM: How would you describe your music?

Alex: Aggressive and melodic!

MJM: Your third album “Shapeshifter” is out. Can you tell us something more about that record?

Alex: It took us a little while to finaly release the album. We started writing it in early 2013 but since we had a member change and an european tour we slowed down on writting and concentrated on playing. We finaly recorded it in Portland Oregon with non other than Joel Grind. We spent two weeks working with him and we finished, mixed and mastered it here in Edmonton Alberta with our main man Terry Paholek.

MJM: Is there a story behind album title?

Alex: Not rally haha we just couldnt come up with a better name and that songs seems to stand out so we went for it.

MJM: Can you compare it with your previous releases?

Alex: We feel this album is exactly the way we want to sound, it shows how much we’ve grown since our previous releases. The other albums are great of course but this one we feel is our best work yet!

MJM: Your personal favorites from the record?

Alex: Torture, Age of Stone, At the Gates.

MJM: Who did the cover for the album and what does it represents?

Alex: Todd Rocket does all of our art work. We give him full artistic freedom but he knows exactly what we’re going for. Its about changes within all of us.

MJM: What are your lyrics about?

Alex: Cara writes 99% of the lyrics and they are about things she finds interesting like cryptids, biology and different states of mind. Ive written a few songs and they’re usually about war, evil and our post apocalyptic future.

MJM: This Fall you are going on European tour with Suicidal Angels, Skull Fist and Evil Invaders. What are your expectations from that tour?

Alex: Alcohol poisoning and rock n roll.

MJM: Are you planing to do some big festivals?

Alex: Not this time around, but maye next summer!

MJM: What are your favorite bands and who has most influenced you?

Alex: Everyone in the band is influenced differently but me personaly, Detente, Broken Bones, Flotsam and Jetsam, and early Metallica.

MJM: What can you tell us about Canadian metal scene?

Alex: Its charged up and ready to explode! Its really tight and mixed so you get to watch metal, punk and rockabilly shows all the time, everyone just kinda hangs out and goes to eachothers shows.

MJM: What is your opinion on Thrash metal scene in general?

Alex: Its cool, theres lots of thrashers everywhere and that means lots of sweet bands for me to find!

MJM: Where do you see Mortillery in 10 years?

Alex: Probably doing the same thing but getting better pay at shows haha!

MJM: Is there anything else you would like to add, maybe something you were never asked but want to share it with your fans?

Alex: Jusat want to say thanks to everyone fo the support and see you all on the road!

MJM: Thank you for the interview and wish you all the best!

Alex: Thanks, take care!!
