Vancouver's Tyrants Blood will be releasing their latest album "Into the Kingdom of Graves" on vinyl with Tridroid Records. Featuring ex-Blasphemy guitarist Marco Banco "Into the Kingdom of Graves" has been hailed as "a mash up of speed, precision, rawness and just all-round fucking evil" by Echoes and Dust.
The buzz on the band has been building, so we decided to check in with Marco and ask him a few question about the upcoming vinyl release.
Tyrants Blood have built a solid reputation in the underground due to the high quality of your previous releases. What sets "Into the Kingdom of Graves" apart from its predecessors in your opinion?Well ,as with every release we do, we try to improve of course. I would say we evolve naturally and try not to force things too much, but with every year we are able to perform at a higher level than the previous.So, with the new album we hope that it's an improvement, and I believe it is.
You somehow managed to make the album sound even more intense than its predecessors. Was the approach to song writing different this time around?
The vinyl version of the album will be available in about a month. What do you feel are the advantages of hearing the band on vinyl vs. CD?
The artwork on the album is fantastic! Can you tell us a bit about it and how you ended up choosing it?
We then contracted it out to my good friend, the great master Paolo Girardi from Parma Italy-We had told him about the idea and we sent him Vinnies sketch. He liked it so much he stayed up all night, archiving his work with photographs. By morning he had the album on canvas, in oil, sent me the copy, and it is the best piece of artwork I have ever been a part of.I own the master proudly, it is glorious.
Anything else you would like to say?
