"We play what we want, we're not following trends or a certain style. If we think it sounds good, we’ll use it."

1. You have been existing as a duo since your formation in 2004. What´s the reason of this solid alliance and which are your goals for the near future?  

In the beginning it was a creative and fun way just to do music, there were no major plans with it or any other purpose behind it. Play guitar, write some songs and have a good time. The goals are to record a full length album and with that material be able to hit the roads.  

2. You have just recorded one EP with 7 tracks. Are you already planning to record a full lenght album?? Tell us some important details in advance please.

Yes, we are! A teaser with 3 pre-recorded songs are on YouTube for anyone to see. At this moment it looks like it will be 10 songs on the upcoming album. The plan is to have it released this autumn.  

3. What stands behind the IN MY EMBRACE name? Is there any special meaning behind it? Who had the idea to use that name for the band?  

Bosse was the one who came up with the name In My Embrace. It comes from a point of view on life itself. Shit happens and you can't always control it, but you can control how you deal with it. Not to neglect people’s hardships, struggles and worries. The point is that life is what you make of it. It's not easy but you can give up or keep pushing forward, it's your choice.  

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

Johan:

In the early days me and Bosse made the music together. We sat in the sofa and jammed for hours and recorded on a cellphone or minidisc. The foundations of the songs "Nattvandraren", “Diabolical Masquerade” and "Thy Abhorrence" (the last one a tune from the upcoming album) was made back then. Nowadays most of the music is written by me. Usually I'll make a foundation with the drums and guitars, some times also bas and vocals (if we already have lyrics) after that we try to develop the tune together. Bosse handles the lyrics, guitar solos and some of the guitar harmonics. Jon will handle the bas from now on. Sometimes in collaboration with me. Perhaps on a future second full length album, Bosse and Jon will take a bigger part in the creating of the music as well. Time will tell.  

5. Talking back about your previous release "Dead To Dust Descend", how was the response the band gained so far? If possible share with us some positive and negative feedback towards this EP 2014?  

The response has been mostly positive, but the funniest of the negative ones were one guy that in a review wrote that we played power metal with growl vocals. Most of the positive reactions have been as a result of the lyric video that Sliptrick Records released march 22nd 2014 on YouTube. The background cinematics in that video is from the Blizzard Entertainment game Diablo 3.  

6. How do you perceive the advances of technology and the internet changing the music industry in the future? Will the CD as a product become a fanatic’s item like the LP is nowadays?

It's awesome, you don't need to spend a ton of money to be able to make great sounding music anymore. If anything the CD will go the way of the Dodo and the fanatics will stick with the LP. On the downside perhaps music looses a bit of it’s soul when it’s easier to create and do business with, people writing music to goodlooking artists with the aim to make money; not so much about creating good music for the music itself or what you want to say with it.  

7. Sweden's 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?  

If you see it from different perspectives, Swedish metal can probably be seen as a quality stamp and you can find many great bands to get inspiration from. But on the other hand it can make it harder to stand out in the crowd of all amazing bands that’s out there.  

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

Talent, marketing and a lot of luck when it comes to creating music that seems to be at the right moment in time. And perhaps music that never gets old, it’s timeless and not part of a hype.  

9. How would you describe IN MY EMBRACE as a whole? Is there anything that makes the group different compared to most new and upcoming bands?

We play what we want, we're not following trends or a certain style. If we think it sounds good, we’ll use it. The thing that matters is that we’re happy, we don't feel any pressure to please anyone.

But it's always nice to hear that there are people out there who like what we do. Does this make us different from other bands? Maybe, maybe not.  

10. What do you think about the current Death/Black Metal scene worldwide. Which are the bands you have the biggest respect for? Which are the most outstanding and influential ones?  

Johan: Well, There´s a lot of good bands and many great new releases. The best ones are in my opinion At The Gates - At War With Reality and Behemoth - The Satanist. Other then that I’m also a big fan of Dissection, Edge Of Sanity, Belphegor and Nevermore.  

Bosse: I think it’s good. I don’t have any interest in praising or talking down a band. BUT, bands I listen to a lot are: Alcest, Winterfylleth, Dark Funeral, Funeral Mist, Agalloch, Windir, Undivine, Rimthurs, Diabolical, Planet Rain, Behemoth, Marduk, Ereb Altor, At The Gates, Dissection, Immortal and Wodensthrone.  

Jon: It's pretty healthy I think There are a lot of great bands around and they are coming from all over the world! Some of my personal favorite among current bands are: Spawn of possesion, Dyscarnate, Aborted, Allegaeon, Agalloch and so on.  

11. OK, we have become to the end. If I have missed anything please feel free to add to this interview.  

Jon: Prepare your anus for our full lenght album! We’re going in hard and dry!  

Johan: I Don’t think I can say it better than Jon.

Bosse: Well, I don’t really sign on to the last two comments but, well, I’m drinking a beer right now so SKÅL FÖR FAN! \m/
