(Answers by Brian Canzanella)

VRAWSCHE is an American harmonic black thrash project of multi-instrumentalist and conservatory trained 8-string classical guitarist Brian Canzanella. Featuring special guest Alex Fewell (Forced Asphyxiation, Scaphism) on drums and lyrics by British author Ian Hough.

1. Hey Brian, how are you doing?? First of all let´s start talking about band´s formation. When did you first time got involved in metal and why reason decided to found this solo project ?

I've been into metal for for over twenty years, and I've been playing it for about fifteen years. I had been writing a bunch of material over the past five years and when I moved to Boston in 2011, I met some guys that helped bring this material to life.

2. How would you characterize the development of your band during this period of existence? What are your greatest achievements and downfalls?

The development of the band was pretty quiet until we decided to launch a crowdsourcing campaign to help raise funds for the debut album. I think that helped start get VRAWSCHE's name out there. And interestingly enough, I think that was definitely one of the bands greatest achievements. We raised over $6,000 to put toward the release. Going from essentially no presence... to releasing an album could be seen as a downfall; you lose a lot of potential for earning fans when you don't play live; no one knows who you are, even in the local community.

3. What stands behind the Black VRAWSCHE name? Is there any special meaning behind it? Who has the idea to use that name for the band?

No real meaning. It was a word I made up as a kid... just thought it sounded cool.

4. You have just released your debut album “Entrance”, everything on it seems to be impeccable, could you please tell us more deeply about the people who was involved on the cover artwork and the engineering & mastering process?

Thanks! The cover and booklet artwork was done by Seth Siro Anton, he's the singer and bass player for Septicflesh. He happens to also do all of Septicflesh's artwork, as well as many other well-known metal bands (Exodus, Nile, Kamelot). As soon as I saw his work for the first time, I knew that he had to do it. I was very lucky we were able to work together, he's an incredible artist. We recorded most of the album at a studio in Boston called The Record Company, and it was engineered (and produced!) by a very talented musician and engineer Dan Gonzalez. The mastering was done by another well-known figure in the metal world, Jens Bogren. He's worked with some of my favorite bands in metal: Enslaved, Ihsahn, Kreator, Opeth... and I knew he would be able to help get the sound I was looking for, and he did!

5. Talking about the music, I can find a solid thrash metal basis with several black metal elements, filled with alot of rythmic elements: How coiuld you describe your composititons itself?

I think your description is accurate. The lyrics, written by my good friend Ian Hough, have a very anti-religious/nature based theme throughout, and I think that, along with the vocals really give it that black metal vibe. A lot of the guitars are very rhythmically driving, like much of the thrash metal I grew up listening to. Really, the compositions come from my influences as a classical guitarist as well as just years of listening to all sorts of metal.

6. Although I'm really cautious when it comes to a "one man band", I must admit that, in your case, I was really amazed by the final outcome. Why did you decide to play all the instruments, instead of forming a regular line up? Is it a matter of total control of your music?

I must clarify that it wasn't truly a one man band. We had a talented, kick-ass death metal drummer, Alex Fewell (Scaphism, Forced Asphyxiation) record the drums. I think it was definitely backwards in my case. While I could have taken time to find guys to fill out the band, the songs were already written and ready to go, I didn't want to wait.

7. Being a one-man-band means that you can't play live. Is this something you're missing?

Totally. I'd like to bring these tracks to the stage, and have been looking for the right people to join the band to make this happen.

8. Pick a song from the album, that you feel to be the most interesting lyrically, musically or having a good story about it and tell me about it.

Musical form was always one of my favorite areas of music theory, and it shows in Osatan. An anagram for sonata, it also happens to be in sonata form. One of the main riffs is based on a diminished fifth/augmented fourth interval, also known as 'diabolus in musica.'

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

I'm an atheist, so no, not really any religious beliefs. My philosophical beliefs for the band, and life, are simple: 1. don't be a jerk, 2. be awesome at what you do.

10. I have read you have a profound musical education. Do you think that musical education is important, when creating, or playing metal music?

Yes and no, I don't think formal education it's required at all. If you're good at what you do, and/or people like what you produce, then you have a case where it's not that important. Philosophically speaking though, people should never stop learning/reading/practicing.

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

There are thousands of awesome bands out there, so many go unnoticed... trying to get the music out there to fans that would enjoy it is probably the hardest part.

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 for all your support!
