Q1 – Hi guys! Congratulations for your debut release “The Sinner”! How is the feedback so far?
We gotta say that we didn’t expect this reaction by the people, our Ep was released on November 1st and now we’ve got more than 40,000 streams on Spotify. We’re very glad and grateful to all the metalheads out there.
Q2- How was the recording process? Where did you record the album? What were the most challenging factors?
Well… this part I think was the most difficult, because we were recording in Fernando’s studio (the guitarist) and he used to have just one old computer and an audio interface. All the process was great because we were in the same studio having fun and creating music together. It was hard because of the gear.
Q3 – What is the best thing about writing a new song? or releasing a new album?
The best thing is that we can communicate something with the world! We can share and express our personal ideas, we think that is the best part of being musician, sharing your thoughts and the way you see life itself
Q4 – What can you say us about The Sinner EP? How would you describe the music style here? What makes it special? And what The Holy Hater has achieved with it?
The sinner is a complete job of six months, we really wanted to make the metalheads feel what’s the metal, we wanted to tell the world that there are bands out there that still making music just because they love music, not just for the money.
If we talk about a specific genre Would be kind of complicated because we try to mix different styles such as Celtic music, basting drums, very raw guitars, as well as clean vocals and pretty smooth melodies.
All the content that is in the sinner is a compilation of different topics such as social problems and especially… protests against the aberration made by all the religions all over the world
Q5 – Could you say this is the Ultimate The Holy Hater style? What can you tell us about the musical direction of The Holy Hater?
Right now people have categorized us as a death/black melodic metal but we gotta say that in the future we plan to add new sounds and experiment with all the sounds that we can find, obviously all in an extreme way! We didn’t want to stop working with extreme music.
Q6 – What makes a music band “Great”, in your opinions?
The sincerity of how the integrants of the band compose their songs and especially in how they love the art that they are doing! Because that is what metal and art in general needs! People who love what they do! No matter if there’s no money received.
Q7 – Top 5 albums which influenced The Holy Hater’s music?
– Ghost Reveries by Opeth
– Doomsday Machine by Arch Enemy
– Twilight of the Thunder God by Amon Amarth
– Kill by Cannibal Corpse
– Death Cult Armageddon by Dimmu Borgir
Q8 – Which bands you’d like to play live or tour with?
We would like to play along with the guys from behemoth because we admire the career that Nergal has built with that incredible band.
Q9 – Tell us about The Holy Hater’s future plans.
Right now we’re rehearsing a lot and we’re acquiring new stuff for our studio so we can provide the people with better music quality. We’re thinking about release a new EP in the future but is a little uncertain, because we really gotta see how people have enjoyed this EP and how much they want to listen to our music and if they’re interested in watching a live performance.
But one thing is for certain we will continue doing music for us! To enjoy our experiences and capture them in a brutal anthem of screams and passion. So if you’re looking for some authentic and passionate metal you know we’re we are
