A few questions – interview with Death/Thrash Metal band from Italy - KARNAR.


A few questions – interview with Death/Thrash Metal band from Italy - KARNAR.

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.?

Replies "Marius" (Composer - Guitar):

The Karnar project officially begins in 2016, but the production of material and the search for lineup starts a few years ago. Our style is not easily be framed in a single sector, We try to do something original, with different influences that are mainly attributable to Death / Trash metal.

Where were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

We record almost all by ourselves. Guitar and bass were recorded at home; voice and drum, in a recording studio. The sound, mix, produce and master were treated by myself (Marius - guitar). We think that a self-produced CD is more satisfyng.


How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?

All the songs of "Take Their Heads" were released in a digital version, fully available on our Youtube channel. Soon we will print the cd in a limited edition to propose it to the public during live.

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with? 

The lyrics are written by Ale and talk about human condition, how people get influenced by the media, superstition, church and politics; the message we would like to convey is simple: stop believing what they want you to believe and think with your own mind.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important? 

The logo was created by a friend of ours, then it has been slightly modified. Cover art is a design that was made by a Novara artist and friend, Giorgio Manzini aka "Green Man". It was made using only a simple black pen, a job that can require many months. The social networks are extremely important and can help us.



Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takes care about you?

In this moment we do everything without labels. We do self-promotion, and we try to find contacts and let us know through the web. I do not rule out a collaboration with any label.

Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

I have been inspired by many bands but I can mention Death, Blundering, Atheism, Carcass, Sepultura. 


Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

No, we chose not to send the material to anyone. We want to focus only on ourselves.

How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best? 

We are also working for that. Unfortunately Italy is not ready for our musical genre, "but also for metal in general". The clubs are really few, and the emerging bands make a huge effort to find dates to be able to play. For the moment we can confirm the date of September 24th at Cassano D'adda (MILAN), "The One Metal Live", as Guest on "BE UNDER ARMS".



What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?

In this moment our only goal is to make concerts. Soon we will try to produce another video clip for our Youtube channel.
