Interview with Infamy
Tell us about your latest release: the main concept; what fans should expect; what were/are your goals with it:
‘Age of Deceit’ was released on July 3rd, 2019. As the title suggests, the overall theme of the E.P. revolves around the fact that everything we think we know about politics, religion, media and all the other institutions is fundamentally wrong and that there exists a reptilian race that has been ruling us for millennia.
Listeners can expect 5 tracks of pulverizing old school heavy metal in the vein of bands like Judas Priest, Megadeth, Motorhead, Accept and Saxon.
Did you have a specific sound in mind when you formed the band, or did that grow and evolve as you played together?
We always knew that we wanted to play old school heavy metal but we added and removed certain influences as we went along and the five bands mentioned earlier i.e Judas Priest, Megadeth, Motorhead, Accept and Saxon are our most prominent influences.
How does your writing process normally work out?
Since all of us lived far apart from each other within the city and had very little time to get together and jam, we would work on rough demos with programmed drums at home and flood our respective google drive accounts with the same and construct songs after repetitive trial and error.
What are your ambitions and how far do you want to push your band?
We are hell bent on becoming an international touring band in the next 7 years or so. We wish to write and spread our music as far as we can, as best we can.
What are your influences/musical references and the impact those same influences had in your sound?
We draw influence from bands of three genres of music – Traditional heavy metal, Thrash metal and Glam Metal/Hard rock. Our influences include – Judas Priest, Saxon, Accept, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Metallica, Motorhead, Whitesnake etc.
What’s next for you?
The plan is to play in as many cities as we can within India and eventually reach out to other countries.
