1. Let's start with the background information. Tell us something about the history of the project?
I've started the Dreams After Death project in 2010 after I've realised that I must work alone to develop my own concepts and to get real results. I mean I loved playing in real bands, but all of them failed or split up by that time. There are too many difficulties establishing and maintaining a real band, and of course this type of music making gives me absolute freedom to express myself. Of course I was in doubt about the future of it, but my first demo recording "Genesis" was a great success, bigger than I expected so I've gotten a nice boost that helped me a lot to trust myself.
2. Dreams After Death has the status of one-man-band. Are there any plans to expand in the future and begin playing live concerts?
I don't think so. As I wrote there are too many difficulties and I don't want to give up my freedom. I'm afraid there are too few people in Hungary who would like to see my shows.
3. Album "Embraced by the Light" received positive feedback from around the world. How difficult was it to develop and record your debut full-length album?
It's a familiar question. I've started to make recordings at the age of 13. Of course there are hundreds of hours in the learning curve, but it's much more fun than work if it's your passion. The biggest problem was the thousands of dollars this meant for my wallet.
4. It would be interesting to know the process you have of recording albums? Do you prefer to improvise and create stuff in the studio or leave there with a clear plan and record all in accordance with the intent?
The mixture of both. I always follow an obviously well thought-out plan, but my albums have some improvised parts, too. You know, sometimes it's easier to make a nice landscape or melody if I close my eyes and I let my hands play. A good example for this is the song "Outer Space".
5. Which bands have influenced your music?
From the genre I'd highlight Shape of Despair, The Howling Void, Esoteric, Ahab and Doom:VS. Shape Of Despair was the first funeral doom band that I heard... needless to say, it was a very special impression in my life.
6. What's happening with the Hungarian doom metal-scene nowadays?
Extreme doom barely exists in my country, and traditional doom bands are uncommon, too. (In my opinion the stoner line doesn't belong here.) Sadly foreign doom bands come here rarely, too. What can I say? I'm trying to change this state. It's the cause my last split relase with Nagaarum is so remarkable. Although the Nagaarum project isn't generally a "doom project", but his last works (Oort I - Oort II) and this new release are a notable novelty in the Hungarian doom life.
7. Your last album was released not long ago. Do you plan to write and publish new material? Are there any achievements you have for the next release?
After my second album "Fading Chains" I've released the above mentioned split album with Nagaarum called "Kuiper". Of course I'm going to write more albums, but I don't want to talk about the details, it would be too early to promise anything.
8. Fnally say something to our readers
Thanks for the interview, and thanks to all of you who read it. I really appreciate your support and the hundreds of feedback I've got since 2010. Doom on! \m/
