Inisans Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

D: Inisans is a Death Metal band found in Västerås. Nothing more intresting there.

2.In April you had released your first full length, what are some of the things you have done different on this recording that you where not able to do on the previous demo?

D: Not much, really. We did the recording and mixing by ourselves and for the mastering we sent it away to Communichaos Media Clay Station. The biggest difference is that all the songs were finished when we started  recording.

3.This was your first release since 2012, can you tell us a little bit more about what was going on during the time span?

We have changed rehearsal space a few times. We started out in Örebro, after that we had our base in Nora for quite a while. After that we moved to Fagersta to get a proper rehearsal space, which we shared with another band. After a while in Fagersta we moved to Västerås since we wanted a place of our own.

Another thing that took some time was finishing the songs, since we only had about four or five songs when we moved to Västerås.

4.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects you explored on the newer album?
P: The lyrics are both literal and metaphorical descriptions of my travels in the night, and the things I have found within it.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'inisans'?

Why don't you tell us your interpretation?

6.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?

P: The artwork is, much like the lyrics, a depiction of some of the things I have experienced, albeit a metaphorical depiction. It can also be seen as the Transition that the record is named after. A change from old to new skin, with the artwork having traces of both what we were and what we have become.

I can also mention that it was drawn by the great Raul Gonzalez.

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

That would have to be the release party we had in Stockholm for the album.

Regarding our stage performance, we're keeping it simple. Four boys wandering into the night.

8.Do you  have any touring or show plans for the remainder of 2018?

We've got some plans, yes.

9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans  of death metal?

From what we've heard, people seem to like the album, which is appreciated.

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

We've found our formula, which we will stick to and evolve with.

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

The old gods of Death Metal are of course major influences.

We all listen to quite a variety of music.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Nothing that is relevant in the context of this interview.

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

Thank you for the interview
