Murder Made God Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

The  recordings of the new album were completed in December 2015.  Since  then we have released some new songs and we are working on some upcoming shows.

2.You  have a new album coming out in April, how would you describe the  musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it  differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Yes, we have our new album “Enslaved” coming out on April 15th via Comatose Music.  I think the album sounds clear, aggressive and  really tight.  We did our best and this time we have a little more  different sound than our previous releases, maybe more organic, besides  we used different equipment.  Musically, we added some different elements but still everything sounds extreme and brutal.
Stelios Koslidis is again our sound engineer and the cover artwork was made again by Colin Marks.

3.This  is the first album to be released in 3 years, can you tell us a little  bit more about what has been going on during that time span?

“Irreverence”  album was released in 2013, since then we have changed drummer, and  quickly arranged some shows and a UK tour as well.  We had a break for a few months and after that we signed to Comatose Music for a  new release that we worked with new material.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

Lyrically,  with this release we explore the slavery that the human beings are  into.  From our daily jobs, from our governments, from our religions etc.  All of them want us to obey in every inhuman must.

5.What  are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and  also how would you describe your stage performance?

Probably  the UK tour had some of our best shows and I remember also a gig in  Athens a few years ago. The venue was full and the crowd was insane!
We try to give our whole energy on stage even if there is one person or more in the crowd.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?

We  are rehearsing for some shows around Greece at the moment. We don’t  have any touring plans but we are going to organise something later on.

7.The new album is coming out on 'Comatose Music' how would you compare working with
them to your old label 'Brutal Bands'?

I  can say that Comatose Music is the best label that we have worked with  so far! We have an amazing support and feedback from them.  In my  opinion this is how an underground label has to be.  Brutal Bands supported us  in the beginning but then they stopped working.  I think our previous  album was their last release.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of brutal death metal?

The  feedback is much better than what we expected. Some fans around the  world really support our music.  This is the best payment for a band but I can say that the more you get your band on tour and work on  promoting campaigns the more worldwide recognition you will have for  sure.

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

All  the MMG members have also other bands except me.  At this time our  drummer is up to release a new album with his other band called Erectus.  You should keep your eyes open for this release.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

I can’t be sure.  All I want is to play the music that we love!  Ideally, I‘d like every album to be a little bit different.

11.What  are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on  your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We are heavily inspired from bands like Decapitated, Origin, Dying Fetus but I think we have created our own character in MMG.
I can say that we are listening to different genres of music but mostly metal.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

I am a dad now and I try to spend as much time as I can with my family.   That’s the best for me.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

I call out all the extreme metal fans to listen to our music and support all the extreme metal bands!
Thanks for the interview.
