......::::UNCLOUDED PERCEPTION (Germany)::::......
Realized at: 16th, June 2015
(Answers by Bernhard Huber - Vocals)

"Our sound seems to contain our many influences indeed and this is a hearable fact... Thus our sound is truly unique but still fits the taste of many people."

1. When did UNCLOUDED PERCEPTION form, and what was the goal? Why reason did it take 6 years to produce your first recording, and how much effort did you put on that?

Although the roots of the band go back to November 2008, the actual genesis of Unclouded Perception took place in June 2009. We were set on creating our own sound, apart from actual trends and conventionalities, just the way we want it to be. There are a couple of reasons but it was mostly a certain demand regarding quality that brought a delay in putting of our first official record. With thus said, we recorded a couple of tunes by ourselves but weren’t satisfied enough to get it pressed. So we used the experience that we gained, combined it with our evolved style and released the bottled-up musical energies in one excessive week at Spice Records.

2. Take us briefly through your life’s musical journey. Were either of you classically trained as a child? Musically, what were some of your early favorites?

Well, I started singing when I was two years old. My grandfather taught me many songs during my early childhood – mostly Bavarian folk songs. I may not sing those songs anymore but I never forgot how to sing. During school I only sang if I had to as I hated being considerably louder than the other kids. That fact wasn’t to change until I joined the first school band – here I could be as loud as I wanted to be and felt good. After a year I joined the newly founded band “Crossover” which ultimately developed to Unclouded Perception. When it comes to the whole band, none of us has been classically trained as a child. My early favorites were bands like “Deep Purple” and “Metallica” – the funny thing is that we’ve all had similar favorites at earlier times but now we’ve drifted apart so that we find our actual favorites in different subtypes of metal. Our main spectrum goes from Death-, to Power-, Heavy-, Thrash-, Pagan-, Doom-Metal and Metalcore.

3. At the first listening, I can find a wide range of several genres on your music. What sets UNCLOUDED PERCEPTION apart structurally and melodically from other regular forms of "metal"?

As I just mentioned, our likes in the genre are diverse wherefore we have multiple influences to our sound. You can find traces of various metal subgenres in our songs, while the base could be described as “Modern (Heavy Thrash) Metal”. It’s like an already special cocktail blended with foreign spices. Heavy riffing meets thrashing parts, while melodies and varying vocals, decorated with rhymed lyrics, are putting a roof to the solid house. In other words, you can describe a foundation but if you walk into that house you’ll always find bricks that you didn’t expect and that’s what ultimately sets us apart.

4. Have you as a band developed an aesthetic that is uniquely yours?

There’s one extraordinary thing that we experience after every concert: The fans, while giving feedback, are always associating us with different bands. That fact is both valid for the instrumental and the vocal performance. Furthermore the people even quote different bands for the instruments and the vocals. From this, one can conclude two things: Our sound seems to contain our many influences indeed and this is a hearable fact. Secondly, while everyone names a different band of which he is reminded through our sound, none can name a definite one that would be quite similar to us nor are the mentioned bands always the same. Thus our sound is truly unique but still fits the taste of many people.

5. You have distributed your EP in some far areas such as Hungary, Turkey, Australia...Are there some parts of the world that really impress you due to the quality of the bands coming from the same area?

Although I’d say there are various good bands from all over the world, some areas seem to have a significant musical quality indeed but I think that it’s highly influenced by the individual taste in music and surely also by the size of the country. My top countries are U.S.A., U.K., Ireland and Germany.

6. I believe that every band has their own way in composing music… so how do you proceed with a song-writing? What elements highly emphasized during the song-writing period?

Every song starts with an idea. That might be a riff or melody that one shows to the rest of the band, it might also be a raw song. When the idea is brought into the band, every member gives his own thoughts and ideas to it and so we form the instrumental composition. Once the instrumental composition is done, I listen to the song a couple of times, sometimes maaaany times, sometimes really just a few, until I sense the feeling, the idea, that the song evokes in my mind. When I do so, I write the lyrics and the vocal melody. As soon as the song is played the first few times, every member gives a critical hearing and so we finalize the structure of both instrumental and vocal composition.

7. What ways has been the best for you in order to promote the band? What do you do to reach as many interested as possible?

I’d definitely say the internet. I guess Facebook and YouTube etc. brought us most of the fans as it is a worldwide resource. We’ve too been mentioned in the local papers very often yet, wherefore most locals probably know us by now but overall the internet seems to be the more fruitful option. Of course all those foreign people who are interested in our music would probably never have found us without the web. To reach as many interested as possible we use various internet platforms.

8. Can you share with us the funniest or most unpleasant situation that ever happened on your live performances?

We had a gig in a cinema in Munich a couple of years ago where we had to play on a weekday at midnight. The people had cozy seats and so quite a few fell asleep during our gig but of course that didn’t stop us from giving it all on the stage.

9. Alright, we’ve come to an end. Do you have any final thoughts? Thank you for your time…

Thank you very much for the interview and for including us in the CD-compilation! We also want to give a big THANK YOU to all the fans and the people who’re supporting us! Keep your horns up und your heads banging! Last but not least, let us end this interview with a saying with which I always intodruce us live: As the world shut its eyes to its abuse and the deception, the time has come for an UNCLOUDED PERCEPTION!
