1. You are a relatively young band with just one demo release on your career. How would you characterize the development of your band during this short period and what have been your achievements and downfalls so far?

Hello! Yes, Ilienses Tree band was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, in the 2013. The project was thought several years ago but we didn't find the right time to carry it on. Finally we have reached our purpose. Our future aim is to finish the new songs and start to record our first full length. At the same time we are looking for a label! 

2. Tell us about your evolution as individual “musicians” and getting involved in the scene. What is your opinion on the underground nowadays than it was before?

Well, we are actually involved in other music project. Claudio and Simone (bass and guitar) also play in a Traditional irish music band called "Glee's", and Claudio also plays in a metal band called "Shardana".

Maurizio sings in another metal band called "Burning Ground".

We think that we are an active part of our local scene and we try to support it as much as possible.

We believe in the underground, we support underground and we think that nowadays internet and the several social networks permit us a continuos trip through the music and its evolution

3. Only release from your camp is - Demo „2014 B.C.“. Try to enlighten this material to us. How long time it took to record it and in what manner you wrote ideas for this material? Are you working all together as a band, or somebody comes up with finished songs?

Truthfully, we are went on quite far since "2014 BC" was produced. At this time we have made new recordings and we are waiting for some answer by a label.

Our sound is slightly changed, we have also changed our drummer and one guitar player.

About our working method, usually we start from a draft and then we develope the song during the rehearsal session.

This is the way we used in 2014 BC and we are still using at this time!

4. What music format do you prefer the most; vinyl, CD, or cassettes? Do you think it is really good to release one album in these three mentioned formats?

We think that CD is the more useful format but vinyl is the really romantic way! I mean, If you are a collector, the possibility to grab a vinyl of one of your favourite album is the best sensation.

5. You've been playing a number of shows the past and the current year. Have you gained a good reputation for your performances? are live shows a central aspect of Ilienses Tree?

At the moment we are focused on the writing of new songs and we hope to start the new recordings next spring. So we aren't focused on live performance (see the next answer).

We think that our reputation is growing but we are aware that the journey is still long and it's necessary leave the island shores before understanding how people considers us .

6. Do you have serious opportunities for live shows in your area? How many times per month can you play live?

Well, Sardinia, is a small island, quite isolated from Italy and Europe in general. We don't have much opportunities to play. There are a lot of bands an a lack of venues to play with a necessary "metal volume".

However during the last years, local promoters are succeeded to organize several important live events and festivals and we had the opportunities to play as support for band like Faal, Gigatron 2000, Black Capricorn, Novembre and Lord Vicar.

We try to play about 4-5 times per year in Sardinia and we hope to play out of our island as soon as possible.

7. Can you share with us the funniest or most unpleasant situation that ever happened on your gig?

Oh, we don't have funny moments, we play Doom!!! But at the same time, for now, we don't have any particular unpleasent situation to underline

8. You’ve been through a line-up change lately. How hard a blow is it when members leave and new ones come?

Yes, from our birth we have changed one drummer and two guitarists. Fortunately we found new mates really soon and we haven't got no long stop period.

The past band members left the "Ilienses Tree" for personal issues and we are still in contact and friendship with them

9. Have you started to work on new material yet? How does it sound? Any major development since „2014 B.C"?

Yes, we immediately started to write new songs, after “2014 B.C.”. At the moment we have just finished the recordings of a new EP and we are looking for a label to produce it. Our sound is the same, but we played a little slow and we introduced the use of fuzz on the guitar and bass. We also introduced some black metal influences. We hope that you can listen this new EP soon.

10.Can we speak of a Italian doom metal sound? What in your opinion set ILIENSES TREE apart from the rest?

We think that in Italy there a lot of interesting band around Doom scene. We have some important band like Doomraiser, Novembre, Forgotten Tomb, Black Capricorn and many more.

We hope to join this scene as soon as possible and we are working hard to reach this result.

We humbly believe in our music, we like our music, so we hope that it may like even to someone else 

11. And how are you guys getting alone in private life? Do you hang out as a band or also as friends? Do you think its important to always be friends first and then a band mates?

We are strong friends, inside and outside the band. We spend a lot of time and drink a lot of beer together and this creates and carries on the alchemy between us.

This is very important for us

12. Well, that would be all for the moment...thanks very much for your time. If you have anything to add in the end to conclude this interview.

Thank you so much.
