Heave Blood And Die Guitarist Talks "Post People"

Metal music has never been a stranger to tackling serious issues. The likes of Sepultura, Megadeth, System Of A Down and Ministry to name a few have written plenty of songs about corruption, slave trafficking, genocide, the environment and the dangers of nuclear capabilities. Now more than ever, it's important to continue to speak up about the perils we face as a species and fortunately, a number of young bands are continuing this approach.

One such band hails from the culturally rich city of Tromsø in north Norway; Heave Blood And Die. Despite their somewhat grizzly name, their music combines doom metal with lush melodies and landscapes, in addition to superb musicianship and a philosophy which isn't afraid of stepping on some toes to get their point across.

Recently, I had the opportunity to put some questions to guitarist/vocalist Karl Løftingsmo Pedersen about the band's brand new album, "Post People," which is out now. You can read the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: Congratulations on your new album, "Post People". What would you say makes this different from "Vol. II"?

Karl Løftingsmo Pedersen: Thank you! I think the main difference between the two records is that Post People is more unique, it brings on more experimenting with both the composition and the sonic adventure, it feels like a breath of fresh air for us.

Oz: The studio where you recorded the album looked very beautiful with great windows overlooking the outside. Did the natural landscape outside help shape the song writing on this album?

Karl: Being isolated with only music equipment on an island by the coast of the western part of Norway surely must have done something for the music, I guess the most important part for us when recording the album was to get away from the anxieties and stress of everyday life. I don't think it would have turned out the same if we recorded it in say Oslo.
