Interview with Intraneum!

Genre(s): Melodic/Technical Deathcore
Location: Trójmiasto, Poland

PSAB: Where did the band name “Intraneum" come from?

ITN: Intraneum in Latin means something inseparable. Our guitarist also liked that name because it reminded him of Periphery's song Extraneous.

PSAB: How has the feedback for the release of your album Perfection?

ITN: We're surprised because the feedback has been very, very good so far. People especially complimented the sound and guitars, some asked if we were planning to release a physical version of our EP. 

PSAB: One of your songs from your new album were actually not your own, but of a deathcore act named Jet Black Promise. This was something your band member's did and lied about. What was done to the particular band member, and what have you done to fix the situation?

ITN: Huh,turned out that he stole not only this song but our single from the period when our name was Until Death Do Us Part was stolen from JBP as well! It was actually our ex-member, who left the band without any word in November, when we started changing our style. We were really surprised, he hasn't given any reason so far. He doesn't answer our calls or messages, generally behaves like a total coward. We're planning to charge him for the time we wasted recording the song, but as mentioned before, he's just hiding, probably hoping that we'll forget about all this mess.

We immediately released an official statement that we had no idea the song was stolen (we were really surprised as we haven't heard about Jet Black Promise before), we're now thinking what we should do with the EP posted on YouTube, as it contains a song that's not ours.

PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Trójmiasto?

ITN: With a few exceptions it's pretty much dominated by thrash and heavy metal bands. Most of people here enjoy old-school kind of music, so it's hard for us to find bands to play with. It's rather hard to make any money from concerts but lots of people attend, so it's rewarding. When we visited Krakow our playing style was nothing special - the city is a Mecca for core fans, there are hardly any bands playing other genre. 

PSAB: Which bands did you listen to growing up, and do those bands play an influence on your music?

ITN: We're influenced by Veil of Maya, Dawn of Dementia, Periphery, TesseracT and a bit of Meshuggah, Reflections and After The Burial. Our vocalist was a huge fan of deathcore bands like As Blood Runs Black and As I Lay Dying which you can hear in the way he growls and screams. Most of the music our bassist and guitarist listened to growing up was mentioned in influences, you could also add Megadeth and Queens of The Stone Age for guitarist and Necrophagist and Blotted Science for bassist.

PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there??

ITN: We'd like to thank anyone who digs our music and especially a few fans who spent lots of time sharing our music and promoting the band, we'll definitely reward you. To people who haven't - please check our (minus Seven,it's Jet Black Promise's) music, is where you can download the EP for free from. We'd really appreciate any opinion
