Metal  Hails!!
Here  is  a   new  interview  with  Greece's  Nightbreed  who  has  just released their  Self-titled debut cd  through  the  mighty  Witches Brew.Anyone  who  is  into  thrash  metal with  some  traditional  heavy  metal  influences  should  defintly   give this  band  a  shot  today

Interview  with  Nightbreed  done  by   Patrick

1.Hello  when  did  you  all meet  each  other? Was  it  long  before  you  all  formed  Nightbreed? How  did  you  all  come  up  with the  name  of  the  band?

Hi there, we all somehow knew each other a long way back when most of us played in other bands, at first the band was formed by George Nyalathotep on drums and Alex G on the bass alongside with sofia on guitars and Ntinos from Released Anger on vocals. After a while George carahito came on to complete the first line up. We all ended up with that name because of our common taste in films and the same thematology of violence and gore in our lyrics.

2.What  is  the  current  line up  of  Nightbreed ?For  the  readers  who  have  never  heard  the  bands  music  how  would you  best  describe  it?

The current line up was formed a little while after sofia left the guitars and Stelios came. After we finished the recordings for our "From Yuggoth" EP Ntinos left the band for personal reasons so Nir took up his place on the hellish vocals. So our current line up is: George nyalathotep on drums, Alex G on bass, Stelios and George carahito on the guitars and Nir on growling/spit on your grave vocals. Our music is pure thrash nothing more nothing less.

3.Nightbreed   has  just  released  their  self-titled  debut  cd  through  the  mighty  Witches  Brew  rec.  how  did  the  band  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label?

After we where finished with the recordings of our first album we began to search for a label to distribute it. We contacted with Witches Brew cause we heard only good words about them and we can also confirm that because we were treated with respect.
They truly are big supporters of the underground scene!

4.How  long  did  it  take to  write  and  record  the  songs  on the  debut?Does  the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or  does  one  member   usually  write  everything?

The songwriting didn't take a long time but the recordings took a while to finish, as long as we had some changes in the line up. We all contribute in songwriting.

5.Who   usually  takes  care  of the  lyrics  for the  band? What  are some  topics/subjects  you  all  write  about?

Usually the lyrics are taken care of by George carahito as we all feel the we can't express the sickness of the human mind better than him!

6.Besides  the  self-titled  debut  does  Nightbreed   have  any  other  merchandise  available  for the  fans?

We have also self distributed the EP "From Yuggoth".

7.Does   Nightbreed    play  "live"  very  often?Where  have  been  some  of your  most  memorable  shows  played?

For sure we haven't played live as often as we have wanted to but we take any chance to play. We think the most memorable shows have been in Kuttaro in athens alongside with many friends and bands.

8.Who  are  some  bands  Nightbreed has  had the  pleasure  to  share the  stage  with?Are  their  any  upcoming  shows  or  small tours  that  the  fans  should  watch  out  for?

Bands that we have shared the stage with are mainly from the greek scene and some of them are Convixion, Steamroller assault, Demolition train and many other great bands.
We are truly happy to announce that we are already booked for a show with Enforcer in December here in athens and in April 2016 in Taunus Festival in Germany alongside the speedgods Iron fucking angel.

9.Nightbreed   comes  out  of the  mighty  greek  metal scene   what  is  your  opinion  of  the  scene  in  Greece?

The scene here in Greece is sick, in a good way and is getting sicker and sicker. And that's because we all are truly metal fans.

10.Who  are  some  of your  all-time  favorite  greek  bands? Are their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

Everyone from the band could respond a little bit different. I think Flames, Rotting christ, thou art lord, released anger. New bands that anyone should hear are Sacral rage, Convixion, Demolition train and many others.

11.In  your  opinion  what  is the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  metal  scene  today?And  what  does  the  term  underground  metal  mean  to  you?

The best thing is that new bands keep popping up and they keep the underground alive. As always the worst thing that happens is the rumors, the backstabbing and all the shit some bands pull to show off. These posers don't deserve to live. Underground is the birthplace for any band today from the great bands of the past to the newcomers in the future. This is where it  all begins!

12.Thank  you   for   taking  the time  to  fill  this   interview   out.Do  you  have  any   final  comments  for  the  readers?

Support the bands you like so they can keep recording, touring and do what they do best: THRASH TILL DEATH!
