......::::DEAD RIVER RUNS DRY (Australia)::::......
Date: 03rd, October 2013
(Answers by Byron Struck -  Guitars )

Australian Black metal horde, formed one year ago, and already preparing a split 7" EP and debut full lenght through The Path Less Traveled Records. You should definitely check them out!!! 

1. Hails guys! First of all I have noticed the band have just been formed one year ago, so I assume all of you comes from previous bands, could you mention some of them and why reason you decided to leave these ones to make a new formation as DEAD RIVER RUNS DRY?

DRRD shares members with the following active bands – Bleakwood, The Veil, Inclemency and Deathwitcher to name a few. Metal archives can give more info for anyone interested in our past.

2. How would you characterize the development of DRRD into this short period of time?

Rapid.

3. You have released one demo “Winter” so far, and it seems like you got a massive positive response from the underground media. Are you satisfied with this?? Could we expect the same amount of quality songs for the next album you are already preparing?

I don’t know if ‘massive’ is the word I’d use to describe the response to DRRD so far, but it’s cool that people have taken the time to check us out. As for the album, we’ll just do our thing and if people like it that’s a bonus.

4. Talking about the next album, I already know the label to be released, the name of the artist in charge of the frontcover artwork, could you tell us some other aspects like the studio to be recorded and something about the album title and tracklist?

We’re working with Mat Taylor who has done our demo and a 7” track for the Elemental Nightmares split: We could have done it ourselves – that side of things isn’t a problem for us but having a person involved in the recording outside of the band can and has been very beneficial. Mat’s excellent in that regard. Art is being handled by Lucas Ruggieri, known for his work with Kylesa and Nunslaughter among others.

5. Do you have serious opportunities for live shows in your area? How many times per month can you play live? What are the most memorable shows that you played?

Playing the Evil Invaders festival with Archgoat, Sadistic Intent and the wealth of Australian/NZ metal in Sydney this year was a highlight, as was touring with The Amenta and Ruins. We’ll be doing some more shows in the new year following the album release.

6. Pick a song from the demo, "Winter" that you feel to be the most interesting lyrically, musically or having a good story about it and tell me about it (my particular favourite song is “Dying Gleam of the Sun Eternal”.

Thanks. Dying Gleam is a track that works well spatially and benefits from a blend of both raw and affected sounds. By raw I mean guitar and bass plugged straight into an amp and cranked for natural breakup. By affected I mean subtle use of modulation and time based effects. The bass and drums maintain a consistency and a pulse for the guitar and vocals to weave around. People seem to like that one.

7. Are there any certain religious or philosophical beliefs within the band?

Plenty of views. For beliefs, I can’t speak for individual members.

8. What music format do you prefer the most; vinyl, CD, or cassettes? I have noticed you have a tape version of your demo “Winter” released by Aurora Australis Records.

Tape is definitely the best way to experience “Winter” if you ask me. The saturation really brings the mix to the fore, especially at loud volume. It’s the best we’ve heard it. As for formats, I’m interested in the music, not the medium. If you’ve got the luxury to be fussy over how you hear your music or how you have it released then that’s great. If not, deal with it. Obviously vinyl is preferred but it’s sometimes pointless if you’ve recorded everything digitally anyway then simply dumped the mix onto wax. I know it’s expensive to record analog and it’s certainly still the best, especially for metal, but I doubt a lot of people would even know (or care) if you record your album digitally like probably 95% of bands do now anyway.

9. How’s the writing process for the new album going, Do you have already a contract from any label?

We were approached by a label in the US called The Path Less Travelled who will be putting out physical copies: https://www.facebook.com/TPLTR 

10. OK, please define black metal with your own words, and if death metal was a beer, which one would it be?

Home brew. To both questions.

11. What would you consider the hardest part about playing in an Underground band?

If you know what you’re getting yourself into then and what to expect/unexpect, then it’s not hard at all.

12. As we near the end of this interview, might you have anything else that you'd like to mention that mayhaps I may have overlooked?

Check out these bands: Thrall, Bastardizer, Departe, Bane of Isildur, Order of Orias, Carbon, Miserable Bastards and Consummation. Thanks.
