INTERVIEW: UNANSWERED rip

Tell us about your latest release: the main concept; what fans should expect; what were/are your goals with it:

CASUALTIES OF INNOCENCE is our second album … A man has three lives: he dies a first time when he loses his illusions, a second when he loses his innocence, and finally the third when he dies.
“All really atrocious things begin in innocence.” Ernest Hemingway …
This album is a little guided tour of the horror of our normality …
Everything is normal: many drink their alcohol while waiting for a return or in the hope of oblivion. (#1#2) …
Everything is under control: modern democratic states are machines for war, war that fascinates and turns good causes, war that is made to make young men with a thousand qualities that we send to die or screw up for a few more or less charismatic and more or less enlightened gerotocrats (#3-4-5) …
It is in the manners: one can try to escape in his virtual life but the inquisitive community of social networks catches up with us and gives birth to the monsters that the hideous hydra with a thousand eyes wants to see in show (#6) …
To save us, clergy of all stripes knock on our door, temple merchants sell love and virtue for bargains, it’s the great ball of tartuffs (#7)…
In the mirror: there remains this crack in each of us… It takes a crack for The Light to appear (#9) …
In front: then since this world is so inhospitable to us, if you will, let’s take together the Hellraiser highway (#10) …
We hope to give an authentic oldschool thrash with some little innovations… Our dream is to do festivals and pass on the other side of the curtain 🙂
