Quick introductory interview.

Interview with The Bloody Earth.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

We are The Bloody Earth, the first Serbian doom metal band. Band begun with the work in 1995, and after releasing first album “Requiem of the weeping souls” on cassette in 1997, has disbanded in 1998. After a (too) long hiatus, band reunited, with some member changes in 2015, and not long after has released new album “Inevitable” on CD.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

We didn’t choose doom, doom chose us. We got fascinated with early death-doom bands, and simply started to play something similar. On the first album, “Requiem…”, in our first incarnation, style was pretty much death-doom, but with some goth-doom melodies and female vocals on some tracks, besides the main growl vocal. On the new album “Inevitable” we’ve cast out gothic influence and soprano, but there is a touch of funeral, so the album is much heavier, gloomier than the first.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Reunion and releasing second album. Best things need yet to come…

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

Early My Dying Bride, Cathedral, Evoken.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

This year we have to play some shows, and we’re already working at new stuff…

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

Doom, or you shall be doomed!
