"...Our music is a mixture of past and recent experiences from raw early years to newest technical and more emotional hearings.." (George) 

 

1.      1. How would you characterize the development of your band during this 2 years of existence?

Greetings from Hellas. I’m the George Diamantis  the vocalist of Sypsis. Development comes as a result of writing music experience, and Ignatios our bassist and main composer write music since very long time ago. That means our music is a mixture of past and recent experiences from raw early years to newest technical and more emotional hearings. Of course musicianship becomes better and better by the years adding to the stability of our sound.

2.Would you say that there is a specific concept that you follow or can anything go as long as it is in the realm of the philosophy of the band?

No there’s not a specific concept behind our philosophy and ideology. Everyone in the band is free to have his own ideas and way of living. We promote nothing when it comes to the philosophy its person might have. As for us, we take incentives from anything that is around, culture, religion, society, politics but most of all our deep emotions. Do what thou wilt.

3. What would you say has been your greatest influences both in sound and aesthetics?

That’s an answer our bassist must take, he writes all the music and a great amount of the lyrics. As for my lyrical contribution would come mostly from deep hate against certain form of people, the dark nature of religions, the evilness of human kind and brutal historic themes.

4. Is Greece a great place to be an extreme metal band ? What kind of response do you get from the Greek metal fans?

Greece is just a, let’s say mediocre, place to be as an extreme band. Many people listen to metal but not lively supporting it. They don’t buy a lot of cds or t-shirts and they usually don’t easy attend live performances, except if there is a well known band playing. This is not a newborn situation caused by the crisis, but something rather old in Greek metal scene. It’s probably the mentality of the supporters here. But as I said before is a mediocre situation and you can find some true followers of this music genre.

5. How pleased are you with your latest recorded work? What kind of responses do you want to get from it?

Concerning the vocals which are my part in this play, I’m totally disappointed! I’m not speaking for the way they are recorded, but about the way they sound. I find them a bit weak and flat, although a lot of those who heard the demo felt they were ok! Anyway, in the forthcoming full length will be harsh and raw the very old way. Now concerning the response, It’s just our first appearance, so will try to make it to as many ear as we can. And for the album we want to do an impact to the scene big enough to get as much attention as we can and spread the way we thrash….!

6. Your music have been compared with bands such as CORONER, ATHEIST, SADUS. How do you find your sound? Do you take a whole bunch of influences and mix them together to make it your brew?

Connections to such bands are utterly accurate. Those bands, together with others like ACCUSER, SODOM, TESTAMENT, PROTECTOR and alike are major influence for us. But there other music (always in metal) we listen and combine to what we compose. Hopefully though we try to infiltrate all those influences and deliver something strong and in a way different to those we might catch their attention.

7. Does it become easier with time to write songs or is it a much more difficult process in that you don´t want to repeat what you´ve already done?

As I said our main composer is our bassist. He creates music for many years now but never recorded something like that we do now. So I guess he have a lot of ideas that want to deliver in the best possible way he can.

8. It might be too early, seeing as you’re working on it right now, but what can we expect from the forthcoming album?

Well yes, it is a bit early. But we already have some material on the way so we have a first glimpse of what is to come… And that will be fast technical and well played thrash metal with as raw as the genre can “take” vocals.

9. Another of my fave areas is art work. In my opinion bad art work can’t kill great record but great art work can make a half decent record seem so much better? What are you opinions on art work?

That’s very true. Artwork can kill or revive a record, no matter the quality inside. For our first release we chose to do something from a guy here in Greece, playing with photoshop to create a part of social reality here in our country. In the upcoming release we might use something more harsh for the eyes and try to synchronize it  with parts from our lyrics. Time will tell for that.

10. What are some of your interests, occupations and hobbies outside of composing sick music?

Well we all have our jobs trying to survive the new ways of living here in Greece. Beside that and music, reading, a good (old) movie or a walk in the forest, we play a little basketball or football, stuff like that to empty our minds and souls!!

11. No more questions my friend. Just thanks for your time and good luck for your future plans. Closing is yours…

Thanks for the interest. Listen to metal and support it as much as you can.
