  1- Hello andwelcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time todo the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of thegroup? Where is the band from? Welcome. We are Funeral Mass, a melodic black metal from GdaƄsk, Poland. 2018 was the year when mine and Jerzy's thrash metal band broke up.

The ideas showed up very quickly, our music style also started to shape, and we already released two full albums, At the Crossroads of Dark Paths and Forgotten Kingdoms of the North. We are now preparing to release our next work. 2- Shadow of the Raventhrone is the band's 3rd full album, how long did it take to write? Very long time, but I think different musicians would understand this term differently. For us, the writing and recording process of our newest album was for sure the longest one ever.

  1-Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for  taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group? Where is the band from? Till: Hello, thank you for the interview! We are from Braunschweig / Lower Saxony in Germany which is a quarter million city. We have a classic 5 person line-up with vocals, 2 guitars, bass and drums and we love to play thrash-metal, but we also try to bring in some other styles like prog or classic metal. 2- “Eyes of the Guardians” is the band's latest album, how long did it take to write? Olaf: Some riffs are quite old but the songs were put together between 2015 and 2019. I always have a pool of riffs and songfragments to choose from, when it`s time to bring an album in shape and form. One riff (the refrain of “Scars of damnation”) is even from the nineties. I always had it in the back of my head, but without the second guitar line. It took about 25 years to become a song. “Invisible” ist al

1- Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group? Where is the band from? The band is a gathering of friends, formerly students of Nancy’s M.A.I, then joined by the bassist’s cousin, Adrien, now singer of the band. We were in the middle of our musical studies when we started working on the first songs of Hypnagone. 2- "Qu'il Passe" is the band's debut album, how long did it take to write? Let’s say three of four years ; and besides, the recording of the album had taken quite a long time (we recorded the album twice, due to some technical problems), almost one full year, during which we continued to change some parts and other things in the songs. So, at the end of the day, let’s say 4 years. 3- What musical influence inspires the bands compositions? I think, on top of classical stuff like Metallica, Periphery, Gojira, Fear Factory, Tool etc., the particul
