A few questions – interview with doom metal band from Italy - SUUM.

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

Mark Wolf: Ciao! The band was founded in 2017 , it all started during a Pentagram show in Rome. All members in the band are Doom maniacs from many years, so we decided to found it, Suum are : Rick – Drums, Painkiller – Guitars, Marcas – Bass, Mark Wolf – vocals.

Suum were born with the intention to play Doom Metal, Doom for the Doomed, nothing else.


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

Mark Wolf: Buried Into The Grave has been recorder at Devil's Mark studio, in Rome, the recording sessions were very fast (two days), we wanted to get a sound very close to what we are in our live shows. 

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

Mark Wolf: Endless Winter released 300 copies , Hellas Records 100 tapes.



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

Mark Wolf: With the use of the metaphors we describe the horror that surrounds us every day. The Lyrics also deal with themes close to occultism and mysticism.

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? 

Mark Wolf: Logo was created by Painkiller, our riffman, the graphics too. Website was created by me. We think social networks are important but not fundamental, they must be used in the right way, the most important thing must be the music and the message you want to spread.

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

Mark Wolf: Endless Winter for the cd version, Hellas Records for the tape version.

We decided to collaborate with them because they are serious people who do their job with passion, this is a very important thing for us.


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

Mark Wolf: Well, we pay tribute to all great Doom masters, we are not innovators, we don't invent anything, we want to play only Doom metal with the right attitude.

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

Mark Wolf: We sent the promo only to Endless Winter and Hellas Records, they were immediately interested and enthusiastic, so we decided to sign, all very fast and unexspected.

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? 

Mark Wolf: We were born a few months ago but we immediately got live gigs, we played at Stoner Night in Rome, Doom Over Florence II edition in Tuscany, Doom's day Survivors fest in Milan and we are closing other agreements in these days. 



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

Mark Wolf: What we want is to play a lot and everywhere, we do not want to get success or something like that , in my opinion Doom needs to stay in the depths of the rock/metal scene .

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?

Mark Wolf: You can find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/suumdoom/


But we hope to meet all of you at live shows for some beer

Thanx for the interview.
