Genre(s): Death Metal
PSAB: Where does the band name "Heresy Denied' come from?
HD: The idea of the band's name comes from our very first huge inspiration - Chuck Schuldiner. He is the guy who opened the gates for completely new type of playing in death metal and metal at all. I wouldn't exaggerate if I called him the true godfather of progressive death metal. His last music project called Control Denied left a huge emotional gap behind so we just wanted to pay tribute to our 'dad' by naming our band similarly.
PSAB: How's the feedback been for your single "Deny Your Heresy?"
HD: The feedback has been pretty cool recently. We have received plenty of flattering comments about it from huge polish bands like for instance Materia and a lot of pages who shared it like you. Well, it's our first song recorded in studio so we didn't expect that it would be spotted on a metal scene so it was a nice surprise that it got nice opinions. And some questions from people expecting when we're gonna release an album.
PSAB: What are your plans for the new year? Tour? Record new music? Write?
HD: We're going to release our first album this year. It's gonna to be a full length one. There are going to be 8 songs presenting different faces of our music but still keeping it brutal and intensive. We would love to tour across Poland but it's just a dream now haha. But who knows...
PSAB: What's the local metal scene like in Poznań?
HD: The local metal scene in Poznan is pretty usual. We're having a lot of cool bands paying tribute to oldschool metal like Bloodthirst, Bękart, Terror Tactics, Enslavement to name a few. We do also have some bands presenting face of modern metal, especially deathcore ones like Final Sacrifice, Blast Rites or Zeal. So yeah, metal music is doing pretty well here.
PSAB: What are some of the bands that play an influence on your music?
HD: The greatest inspiration for us nowadays are The Faceless, Veil of Maya, Fallujah, 100 Knives Inside and every band being progressive/technical/ experimental/fucked up and so on. But also some elder bands like Death, Cynic, Necrophagist had a huge impact on us.
PSAB: Any shout outs to give?
HD: We would like to thank producers from Aurora Studio Daniel Witczak and Adrian Kasprzak for helping us in mixing up our single and everyone who supported us so far. Keep cool guys and stay metal. Album is coming.
