- Hello, Cyjan! My first question is regarding some recent changes within the group, why did Hal leave Dead Infection?
- The answer is very simple. Hal got the offer to play in VADER and went for it.
- Did your new bass-player take part in the recording of your newest song "Tremors in the Morgue"?
- No, he didn't. "Tremors..." were recorded by me and Pierscień only.
- This track has been released in digital version only. As far as I know it's your first time experience of spreading your music this way. Did you like it? Do you plan to distribute any of your further releases the same way?
- Yes, we did it for the first time. And I think it's not good idea or business for this genre of music. People prefer natural, physical format like CD, Vinyl. Although some companies still sell our old albums in digital versions.
- Not so long time ago, a Mexican Tribute CD has been released. How did you like it?
- I like it, and it's very kind of all these bands they wanted to play our songs. Thank You all.
- It's far not the first time that other bands record covers on your material. Do you have any favorites among them?
- I don't want to mention any names of bands or songs. But as I said, it's a great honor to hear our own songs played by another bands.
- And as we talk about covers, it's hard not to mention your cover on Bee Gees. Was it your idea? Could you share with us any interesting facts about the process of recording it?
- Yes, it was my idea and it came to me accidentally. Sometimes during rehearsals I like to play drums different songs. One day Bee Gees came to my mind. First, I started to play normal beating, like in original song. But next, I started to play everything 2 and 3 times faster. It was more funny listening original song in the same time. So I made decision to record it. I have to say that recording of this song wasn't easy, because we worked with analog equipment this time. I couldn't use metronome, Bee Gees song which was on my headphones was my metronome. I had to keep the rhythm right from beginning to the end. I needed to make a dozen repeats, but finally I succeeded (I hope).
- A few years ago Selfmadegod Records officially reissued your first 2 albums. Have you had any more requests for new re-issues?
- Two albums were released in Vinyl format, and second album also in Digi CD format. First album will be released in Digi CD format in the nearest future. I don't know about other releases, because now we're more busy with other things.
- With time your album covers became noticeably softer. "Looking for Victims" from your latest split with Parricide proved it again, so why did you decide not to choose those shocking real pictures as you did it on the first albums?
- Because we're already tired with all those gruesome graphics. Too much of it, and in these times it's not possible to think up something original. Although we don't want to change our ideology entirely. Just wanting to put some other elements. Maybe adding more humour into it.
- This year should be quite active for Dead Infection as you've been invited to so many festivals. Do you have any favorite festival where you really enjoy playing?
- I respect all shows we play. It doesn't matter if it's festival or show at the club. Of course, everybody likes a huge attendance at the show.
- Do you think it's possible that you go on tour this year as well?
- Longer tour is planned this Autumn (USA/Mexico). Besides, some shorter excursions.
- You keep working on several singles and splits, but is there any progress regarding your new album?
- Yes, it is. We're already started working on our 25th anniversary album. The album will contain our old songs chosen by fans newly recorded.
- Thank you for the interview, Cyjan! Do you have anything to say to your fans?
- Thanx for the interview as well! Take care and see you at gigs! Cheers!
