Interview: Avavago

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

It’s a 32 minute full length album entitled, “Tyrant”. there are 9 tracks and it’s fast and heavy black thrash. Our goal was to make as great of an album as possible for us, not only in quality but also in our writing. I think it’s the best thing to come from the band so far.

Did you have a specific sound in mind when you formed the band, or did that grow and evolve as you played together?

I think there was a sound that was in mind when the band was formed but we’re just going where the mood takes us. I think as time goes on we will evolve.

How does your writing process normally work out?

Tim usually seems to write the bulk of things being that he’s the only original founding member but Arant and Lawley accompany the writing with whatever input in necessary.

What are your ambitions and how far do you want to push your band?

We’re hoping to push and go as far as we can. I think that’s most bands ambitions. I guess it just depends on the opportunities that become available to us.

What are your influences/musical references and the impact those same influences had in your sound?

There are probably too many to mention and each member has their own influences. But as a whole I think bands like Motorhead, Terrorizer, & Slayer are some good influences on us and probably most other bands out there.

What’s next for you?

Well we’ll probably push this album for a while and play some shows. We have some ideas for new stuff so we’ll probably end up back in the studio before too long and record some more stuff. Could be an EP or another full length album. Only time will tell.
