 (Answered by Andreas and David)

BLEEDING UTOPIA is formed by pretty experienced musicians coming from previous established Bands, Tell us please a few words about your early days as BU and how have you developed your musical direction?

It all started back inte the early years in 2000. Andreas recorded a few songs and decided to give them a new life in 2010. All members in the band are from the underground scene, and we put it all together from there. Andreas Only asked the people he realy wanted to play with, people he knew fitted his way of thinking when writing music.And every man he asked Said yes and thats Good or Bleeding utopia may not exist.

In the middle of 90ies came the melodic death metal in fashion, such bands like IN FLAMES, DARK TRANQUILLITY, ARCH ENEMY or AT THE GATES popped up. It´s obvious you have turned into this melodic direction, it was intentional?

Sure, all those bands had a huge influence on us back then. But we tried to put some of our own edge to it. Mixing brutallity with lots of melodic stuff. We like the melodies from at the Gates, dissection , amon amarth  and the rawness from old Metallica, slayer and the madness from the black dahlia murder, Nile, Lamb of god, meshuggah and the awesome heavieness from entombed, dismember, grave etc etc. We have also listened to alot of black metal and old heavy metal. So We try to take all of our influences and to make it our own. We are not looking to sound like any of the bands above. We are in the end trying to sound like Bleeding Utopia.

As for the old scene and especially NIHILIST/ENTOMBED, who in my opinion were the forerunners of the European death metal movement, they have discovered a new sound which was improved to perfection. This was the, so called, chainsaw sound, which was created in the Sunlight Studio by Tomas Skogsberg. Do you like the sound of the early ENTOMBED; GRAVE or DISMEMBER albums? Did the sound of the early records of these bands bring the reputation for the Sunlight Studio and Tomas Skogsberg?-

Entombed and Dismember are bands that Andreas and David grew up with. Just loving the straight and raw sound of "death and roll". It was like getting an fist in the face and I believe that the sound wouldn´t be the same without Tomas. He put the new "swedish" sound into detahmetal

Where do you think the violence in your music comes from? / What inspires the rage in your music? And also musically what bands have the most influence on you?

First of all, this is what we want to play and challange ourselves. Then the rage can come from anything, a memory from and old phsyco girlfriend perhaps (haha) or just things that happens all around us. When we read things in newspapers or se on tv that we think is sick and disturbing I (Andreas ) us that to write and agro song. Andreas is very interested in WW1 and WW2 And what humans are capable to under alot of stress and brain wash. All bands above have had a part in my life since years and years ago 

What is Death Metal for you ? What Death Metal band do you like and how do you consider the new Death Metal generation ? You know the development in the metal scene - it's more and more splitting up into different genres and the fan bases are more and more getting in conflicts with each other. What is your opinion about this development?

Death metal is a form of music where you have to challange yourself. Specially nowadays when everything has to be perfect. Every music genre has it´s substitute and you can´t walk around getting pissed at people cause they disagree with you. We do what we do, like it or not. 

Sweden's black metal scene is quite big and has a lot of many great bands. Do you think that the fact you are coming from there helps you in a way or is it bad because of the big circle of good bands?

I can only look at it from the bright side. It´s good for all metalbands in Sweden that other bands reach succes. Then people wants to check out more of whats going on up north

What makes a band special? What is that vital ingredient that separates a good band from a great one? Do you have a solid fan base in Sweden?

Potential and how to sell your product. It slowly grows

What are your goals in making music? Would you like to perform in some big events someday or are you making music just for pleasure?

We want to go as far as possible, but wouldn´t be doing this if it was no fun

What do you think about video clips? Would you like to do one for BLEEDING UTOPIA in the future?

Sure

Can you explain the method of songwriting employed by BU? Is the writing process generally collective or does one member often craft the song on his own?

For our upcoming album Andreas had alot of material. But we allways put it all together as a band

How do you record your material? Do you use digital or analog equipment for the creation of your deadly hymns?

Digital, we record drums and bas in one studio the record guitars and vocals in own little studio. 

What do you expect from the near future? Is there anything special you have in mind for coming releases and gigs?

We are working on our first album and hopefully it will be done after the summer. We have some gigs booked but the focus is now to get the record done

That’s all from me. I wish you all the best and I thank you warmly for the chance to speak with you.

Thank you
