1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?
Well, since now we’d thought about find reliable solutions in order to present a live show as close as possible to the recording quality level. It took some time, some technology issues and of course a lot of practicing. In the meanwhile, we’d also keep on writing some new materials.
2.Recently you have released a new album, 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?
It’s been a big step forward for us from “Cold Shade Burning” (release on may 2012) and “No Shores of Hopes”, in each single meaning. What was merely mentioned on previous works it’s now became the core of our sounds. Electronic and Dark style influences has finally reached the topic and we worked hard to make them work along with our classical Death metal groove.
3.This is the first release to come out since 2012, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time span?
Actually, we had gig a lot promoting Cold Shade Burning ‘till September 2013. Then we suffered some line up change and once we closed this issued, in springs 2014 we started to compose and create what has become “No Shores of Hope”.
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Lyrics are carried out by Andrea, our singer, basically conceiving an apocalyptic vision on human conditions and self-destroying behavior but giving always from a point of view that try hard to look where the light is out of this ruins’ dust.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'The Burning Dogma'?
Nice question!! Well, the name of the band has been inspired by a verse contained in Morbid Angel song “From where the slime live”, but we made it our own as a philosophical concept: be free from all that dogma and constrictions that force your mind to underlay to fears and ghosts that are synthetically created to indoctrinate humanity for second and hidden purpose, i.e. economical, political, religious and so on.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Well, honestly I don’t remember a precise show much more better than others, I mean every time it’s a special emotion to get on the stage and play as loud as we can. One of our main goal is to provide a visual performance done by dynamic choreography along with strong sounds to those who come to our show.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
So..in order to warm up we got a gig in Milan on 5th March sharing the stage with other hot band as Deathless Legacy, Insidia etc.. and then on 9th of April having the release party of our new album.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of goth, doom and death metal?
As far as we know, we had only very and encouraging feedback from different kind of listeners. Die hard death metal fan has enjoyed our personal way to feed our style with dark fashioned tunes as goth and traditional metallers has appreciate our research for an extreme metal not barely done by chaotic blast and iper brutal riff.
Seems like we shoot it right, isn’t it?
9.Are any of the band members also involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?
We got a lot of friends in our national metal scene, so from time to time some of us are involved in other project but at the end of the day all the actual component are fully focused on The Burning Dogma.
10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Honestly we wanna emerge and rise to upper level both in commercial and artistic side of the story. So be known by the musical system as a reliable performer on stage and as a great creator of odds and emotional tunes.
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?
Well, all band members has their own hype on specific styles, but most of all, our sounds has been influenced and forged by classic smashers as Carcass, Entombed, Bloodbath mixed up with Dark and EBM tunes as Sisters of Mercy, Dead Can Dance, Hocico, Christian Death etc..
Currently I’m just looking through out underground acts, as Plateau Sigma, Despite Exile and so on…
12.What are some of your non musical interests?
Well, all of us got their own jobs so out of our musical duties our interest are focused on careers. Anyway we really appreciate painting, arts, and of course wine!!
