Tragodia is a band with a long history and life: more than 20 years are passed away from our first demo tape. We have seen the evolution of metal music through the years and through the years we evolved from a melodic gothic style to a more heavy, groovy and epic style, focused on granitic rhythm parts and melodic vocal lines.
What can you tell me about Tragodia latest album “Before the Fall”?
Before the fall is a heavy metal album but with many influences. It was written we think in a coherent frame compared to the other works but focusing more on the vocal parts from the beginning.
When your fans can hear something new after “Before The Fall”?I mean if there is scheduled some info about new album.
We have just written 4 new tracks but we don’t know at the moment when the next album will be recorded. The idea is to write quickly and record within the end of the summer.
Do you have enough of positive feedbacks about the album so far?
Yes, we are very impressed. The first reviews are all positive and fans have really appreciated this new effort.
Revalve records released your album, so how you can value your collaboration, will you continue with them?
We are very pleased with our new label; at the moment Revalve Records is doing a great job about promotion, and all the stuff around the release of the album, so we think is everything we need for the band.
You’ve been active as a band formore than 20 years, what helps you to continue with the music?
Music is our passion and is one of the few things in life worth living for. Our first issue through the years was to find a solid line up. We have changed many members and only if you believe in what you are doing, you can hold on; another aspect pushing us to play is the response of people who like our music and who contact us, try to let us know about their support.
You live from album sales?
Unfortunately, we don’t. It could be amazing, but not for now… but… hope never dies.
Quite a few people have been involved inTragodia since its inception. How did you come to find a stable, permanent line-up of members?
For more than 10 years, we had a band core of 3 members that were the soul of the band. More the years passed, more is difficult to find people involved in music because we can’t live with our passion and some of our former members have built families or have work issues.
Which song off of”Before the Fall” would you choose to play if you wanted to create a new fan of Tragodia?
That’s a really difficult answer because Tragodia has many faces. I think that ‘Master of the loss’ and the title track ‘Before the fall’ could be a couple of songs right for a first approach with our music. But if the fans prefer something different from our typical stile, you could listen to ‘adrift ‘or ‘the house by the grove’, songs with a completely different atmosphere and sounds.
Which was the band that made you go, “that’s it–I’m starting a metal band!”?
At the beginning, I think without doubt Iron maiden and Metallica, always fan of them.
Any parting words for the readers ofMetal Militia?
Yes! Listen to our new album “Before the fall” and enter in our world. We hope to see you soon when we will start to play through Europe during the next months! Stay tuned.
Thank you for your time!
