Kambrium Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Many thinks are happening right now, but actually we are planning our next live gigs. In 2012 we want to present our "Shadowpath" as much people as possible! Furthermore we are doing some interviews.

2. How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the new

The musical sound on "Shadowpath" is very important to keep the different emotions alive. With it you can express complex feelings, so the listener is even more able to feel what the musicians want to say!
In our opinion, a good musical captures the audience in a mental way, thats what we want to do with "Shadowpath"!

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores
with the new release/
The album is full of myths. We love the stories about Egyptian gods and their fights. In addition, we like the complexity of the Greek myths. Everything finds its place on the album. It would simply make no sense to write funny songs about something men and women. For us the music is most important!

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?

The Kambrium was the era in which the diversity of life began. We transpose that variety into our songs to make all different kinds of emotions "visible" for the listener .

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and
how would you describe your stage performance/

We remember fondly the shows on the "Waldbrand Festival 2008 and 2011" or "Herbststurm Festival 2011" back. The energy exchange between the audience and us was tremendous. The best shows are those shows where the people have as much fun as we do. The best way to describe our stage performance is to write down an excerpt from our song "Thanatos": on stage we are an "overwhelming brutal force".

6. Do you have any touring plans for the new release?
We are still planning our next gigs, so maybe we will be able to to a little tour in 2012!

7. On a worldwide level how has your music been recieved by melodic
death metal fans?

The resonance so far is very good! We initially did not expect that the world would give us so much attention, but we look forward to every honest opinion, whether it's good or bad.

8. Are there any projects besides this band or is this a full time line-up?
Our bass player Martin plays in a Brutal Death Metal band called "Sariel". They have recorded their demo recently. Everyone who is into Death metal should give it a try.

9. What direction do you see the music heading into on future releases?

Jan is already writing new songs. The Musical Parts will be even more powerfull! The demos for each new sound fragment already sound promising! Shadowpath won't be a "One Hit Wonder"!

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your
music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

There are many musical styles which have influenced us. For example Gothic-, Power-, Folk-, or Death Metal. It is difficult to name bands, but you can say that we all grew up with bands like Ensiferum, Wintersun, Metallica, Tenacious D, Immortal, Beethoven, Nightwish, In Flames, or Hammerfall. We all listen to these diefferent styles of music.

11. What role does mythology play in your music and how would you
describe your views on this topic?

Mythology plays an important role in our music. It is the mental "door-opener" to all listeners of us. Many people know or even like all these egyptian myths, and we give them the possibility to hear it with atmospheric music around it. All these myths are timeless. Many of them have a morality, to which the reader can always rely.

12. Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Each of us loves movies. Jan for example, is almost every second week in cinema. Karsten likes riding motorcycles. Martin often goes to concerts and likes to party. Fabien plays poker or videogames. Julian likes to draw comis and is very interested in politics.

13. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
We are looking forward to see you guys on stage soon! Have a nice day!
