Mislim da dobra glazba mora doći iz srca i mora biti zadovoljstvo stvarati i svirati

Binary Creed

Binary Creed je vrlo mladi band, ali po materijalu koji su snimili, vidi se da imaju dosta iskustva. Band je nastao 2014. i odmah je izbacio album Restitution, koji je dobio nagradu za najbolji metal album 2014. na Themetalsyndicate. Band koji se može uz album pohvaliti i ustrajanosti na promoviranju svog albuma. Radi svega toga smo uz razgovor sa Stefanom, napravili ovaj intervju.

MJM: Please for a start introduce your band Binary Creed to our readers.

Stefan: Binary Creed started as a project between Stefan Rådlund and Andreas Stoltz, but now it’s a full-blown metal band. Stefan and Andreas have always been writing music on their own, and are both interested in the recording aspects of making music. The album Restitution is recorded in our homes and with pretty basic equipment. We send each other ideas and then collaborate through cloud services. For this album it was box.com. Stefan or I record something and then we mold it to fit into a song. We have an ambition to write music that sticks, so we try to keep the songs short and catchy.

MJM: What is meanning of band name?

Stefan: It’s up for interpretation. It’s the title of a song by Swedish metal band Hollow, in which Andreas was until their split-up in ’99. The original context of the song involves an AI, so originally binary can be construed as a belief in the possibilities of
the digital revolution and evolution. Binary also means on or off/1 or 0, and that of course can be transferred to any system of
belief or ideology.

MJM: What do you release till now?Binary Creed_Restitution CD cover

Stefan: Restitution is Binary Creed’s first album, but Andreas has released two albums on Nuclear Blast with Hollow.

MJM: Where do you recorded Restitution and how it goes?

Stefan: The album was recorded in our homes with standard PC’s and pretty basic recording equipment a sound cards and microphones go. We went to a local studio, Enhanced Audio Productions, to have Ronnie Björnström re-amp and mix the album.

MJM: You have win a prize for best metal album 2014 on The Metal Syndicate. Can you tell me a litle more about that.

Stefan: We’re extremely pleased with the prize, but I guess they must have heard about us.

MJM: Do you have help from colleagues from famous bands?

Stefan: No.

MJM: You are from Sweeden where metal is like nacional music. How is dificult to succeed in such an environment where there is a lot of metal bands?

Stefan: I think that good music has to come from the heart and it has to be fun to write and play. In that sense Restitution feels like a good outcome. It’s extremely difficult to stand out when there is such competition, but I think we have something special here. We’ll have to take success as and if it comes and continue writing what we like and about what we feel is important.

MJM: Can you pount out some gig witch is special in yours career?

Stefan: To me it was a small Norwegian tour and of course when Hollow played Wacken in Germany (Andreas).

MJM: What kind of music do you listen in band?

Stefan: Dream Theater, Symphony X, Opeth, old metal bands such as Sanctuary, Crimson Glory. The list is long.

MJM: Please tell us for the end future plans for the band.

Stefan: Right now we’re focusing on getting the album out. Finding distribution, perhaps a record deal. Apart from that we’re writing album two.

MJM: Thanks for an interview.

Stefan: Thanks you too.

Hrvatska verzija

MJM: Za početak možeš li predstaviti band našim čitateljima?

Stefan: Binary Creed je počeo kao projekt Stefan Rådlunda i Andreas Stoltza, ali je sada puni metal band. Andreas i ja smo uvijek pisali glazbu za sebe i obojica smo zaineteresitrani za proces stvaranja glazbe. Album Restitution je sniman u našem domu i korištena je uglavnom osnovna oprema. Jedan drugome smo slali ideje i večinom komunicirali preko cloud servisa. Za ovaj album smo koristili box.com. Ja bi snimio nešto i onda bi to prilagođavali da stave u pjesmu. Ambicija nam je bila da stvaramo glazbu koja paše, tako da smo se trudili da radimo kratke i zanimljive pjesme.

MJM: Koje je značenje imena banda?

Stefan: To je naslov pjesme od banda švedskog metal banda Hollow, u kojem je Andreas bio sve do raspada 1999. Godine. Originalni kontekst pjesme je bila umjetna inteligencija, vjera u mogučnost digitalne revolucije i evolucije. Binary još znače on/off,  1 ili 0, i to može biti preneseno u bilo koju vjeru ili ideologiju.

MJM: Što ste do sada izdali?

Stefan: Izdali smo samo Restitution, ali je Andreas izdao dva albuma sa Hollow za Nuclear Blast.

MJM: Rekli ste da ste snimali album doma. Možete li nešto više o tom snimanju reći?

Stefan: Album je sniman kući na standardnom kompjuteru uz zvučnu karticu i mikrofone. Otišli smo u lokalni studio Enhanced Audio Productions da nam Ronnie Björnström izmiksa album.

MJM: Osvojili ste nagradu za najbolji metal album 2014 na The Metal Syndicate. Možeš li nam malo više o tome?

Stefan: Vrlo smo zadovoljni sa tom nagradom, ali za nas se treba još čuti.

MJM: Imate li pomoći od kolega iz poznatijih bandova?

Stefan: Ne

MJM: Vi ste iz Švedske gdje je metal kao nacionalna glazba. Kako je teško uspjeti u takvom okruženju sa toliko metal bandova?

Stefan: Mislim da dobra glazba mora doći iz srca i mora biti zadovoljstvo stvarati i svirati. U tom smislu Restitution je dobro djelo. Užasno je teško istaknuti se uz toliku konkurenciju, ali mi vjerujemo da imamo nešto specijalno u ovom albumu. Ako i dođe uspjeh to nas nesmije poremetiti u pisanju što želimo i što osječamo. To je ono najvažnije.

MJM: Možete li izdvojiti neki koncert koji vam je bitan u karijeri?

Stefan: Meni je to bila mala Norveška turneja i naravno kada je Hollow svirao na Waken-u (dodao je Andreas).

MJM: Koju glazbu slušate?

Stefan: Dream Theater, Symphony X, Opeth, stare metal bandove kao Sanctuary, Crimson Glory. Lista je poduža.

MJM: Možeš li za kraj reći o planovima benda?

Stefan: Trenutno smo fokusirani na širenje albuma, zatim naći distributera, po mogućnosti izdavača. Uz sve to pišemo materijal za drugi album.

MJM: Hvala na intervjuu.
