1. I'm sorry to ask this generic question, but since you are a relatively new band, many people may want to know the origins of AMMONAL. Can you ellaborate on the genesis of this Band and how each of the members were summoned to participate?

Ammonal is an Italian Melodic Death Metal band, founded in 2008 by Renzo and Leo, respectively the bass player and the guitarist of the Melodic Death Metal band EarthFlame. After a while the guitarist Andrea joined them and together they started to work at the new project. After some months and some line up changes, Leo became also the singer of the band and in February 2009 the keyboarder Federico joined the line up.In October 2009, after a long search, the drummer Moreno finally joins the band and in April 2010 Ammonal records the first demo:“Beginning The End Of Everything”.

2. AMMONAL has been described as Melodic Death metal, but your subject matter is quite different from the typical Melodic metal band. How would you describe your music?

We define our music ALTERNATIVE melodic death metal, because we start from the traditional melodic death metal that we evolve affecting it with other musical genres , trying to bring some innovations in the extreme metal scene, that at the moment seems to be filled.

3. You have recently just recorded single “Bloof from the Sky”, I’m guessing you’ve come a bit since. How’s the writing process going, any plans so far for next recording session?

We’re settling the final details of the new songs, after which we’ll be ready to record our first full length album. Unfortunately we had some line-up problem that slowed all the proceeding, but we are recovering.

4. It would be interesting to know how many hours a day you rehearse? Does anyone of you spends time for self-improving by working alone?

We  go to the rehearsal room once a week, but each one rehearses at home according to the time that has free. Unfortunately the work doesn’t leave much free time.

5. How is the Metal-scene in Europe right now for you guys, specially in Italy? Are you getting the gigs and exposure you think you deserve?

In Europe I don’t know, but in Italy is very hard. Seems that the system is trying to prevent emerging artists to make music, the clubs are very powerful and they play especially bands pushed by agencies or recommended, because they aren’t interested in promoting the music but only in making a profit.

The cooperation between different bands is poor, then it’s like a daily battle to earn the public’s attention.

The major labels are in all Europe except in Italy, so an Italian band that want to succeed must try its luck in other countries, and I think that if we were born in another country now we would be much know.

6. Italian bands are taking over the scene in good way. How do you feel about Italian scene? Would you change anything about scene there or scenes around the world?

In Italy there are a lot of excellent bands , but as I told before, the path is long and difficult. I think that the metal scene currently lacks originality.

7. What inspires you to make the music you make? Tell us exactly what message you are trying to get across with your music?

Metal music, especially the extreme one, is a strong and aggressive genre, so both the arguments of the lyrics  and the sensations that lead us to play this music is the violence in society. Death metal, as its name suggests, talks about death and everything that revolves around it, so playing this music became like a sort of exorcism to death itself.

About us, at the moment we are trying to revolutionize a little the scene, bringing new musical influences.

8. How important is the keyboard as an instrument in AMMONAL, and how do you develop these parts? You may wonder why I ask specially about this instrument, and the reason is that mostly extreme Metal bands that is closer to Death Metal than Black Metal seldom use the keyboard…

Keyboard in  this genre is very important, and in our songs is very present. Without keyboard the atmosphere of the songs would be different and maybe you’ll feel them empty.

9. What makes a band special? What is that vital ingredient that separates a good band from a great one?

I think the originality. By now there are thousand of bands who can play well, so the important thing is to bring something that others bands don’t have.

10. How do you perceive the advances of technology and the internet changing the music industry in the future?

Technologies is helping a many band to be kwown internationally, and this is very important. 20 years ago our music would have been known by a few people, but right now a lot of people around the world write to us their congatulations by Facebook and Myspace.

11. Alright, we’ve come to an end. Do you have any final thoughts? Thank you for your time…

Thank you,  we say goodbye to all the readers and we invite them to give a listen to our music at www.myspace.com/ammonalmetal  and all other social networks, you will not regret!!
