Esperoza Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

When you are in a writing process, or in pre production work, or recording sessions, everything is clear, and you have an exact plan what to do, and you are waiting eagerly for album to be released. Then it comes out, and you kind of don't know what to do with this next, even though you are waiting such a long time for this, in the same time it's a little bit sad. So I think for us is better time when we in creating season. Maybe that's why we started to write some material for our new albums when we even didn't have a release date for Aum Corrupted.

2.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?

The best thing in our music is that we experimenting all the time (at least for us, but for listeners it can be very uncomfortable). So our previous album as well as the next one, will be totally different. But to hear this difference you must to listen all our music, so I challenge you to do so, and after this tell us what is different ;)

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music/

Reflections about existence of all things, about humanity, mental anguish, about pain we are going through, about pain we are causing each other day by day, and many more negative things we're living, but which can make us thinking.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Esperoza'?

This question is very complex, but I'll try to make it as short as possible.
Esperoza means universal explosion from a dead language. Inspiration is everything around us and inside of us.

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?

The best shows are those with a good response from the audience. Therefore one of them was the first edition of Esperoza's festival "Metal Displacement Over Nistru- 2015", and the other one was right after this one (what a coincidence) it's our show in Moldavian Transnistria, btw all the videos from these and many other shows you can see at our Youtube channel. As for the stage presence, we are not those who must describe this, this should do our audience :)

6.D you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

For now we don't have any touring plans. Currently we are working on our future two albums, so we don't want to tour right now to not lose this inspirational moment.

7.The new album was released on WormHoleDeath Records, are you happy with the support they have given you so far?

We signed this deal with WormHoleDeath not so long time ago, and just released the new album, so it's a little bit early to talk about any results, but we hope this will be a great experience.

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

We are a little bit isolated, because of our country location and because of our unclear and atypical music. So not so many people can dig it, but from those who really do, the feedback is amazing.

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

If we are talking just about musical side this will be even more experiments, and mixture of different genres and subgenres. Sometime it will be hard to listen, but  at least not boring :P

10.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?

We already responded for this one so many times, but that's fine, so our musical influences as you can even see in our official bio and description are very versatile. But some particular bands which have influenced Esperoza are: Emperor, Celtic Frost, Morbid Angel, Death, Mithras, (for the first album), and Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Devin Townsend and even King Crimson (for the second album), and of course many others in different ways.

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

Listen true music! And support underground artists!
