Hi and welcome to this new tread that will contain insight and details about making the album Sonata Di Morte, song by song. Will try to make it as readable for gear freaks as much as the average listener.
Back To The Beginning
Let´s go back to where it all started. Way up in the north in a small town called Tromsø, Norway.
All the way back in 2015 when we ended our European tour with Dienamic and the album Afterlife, we immediately started looking for clues how to get the next album to sound the way we imagined. By clues I mean inspiration and what way to go. Stay on the thrash/Groove train or go forward towards something new. For me personally, as a songwriter, I have always felt what I want my music to be, but with just a feeling and a wired image in the head it is not that easy to get it out in the right way. By spreading all the pieces out on the floor and trying to pick the parts that you think will bring you towards what you are looking for, seamed to work. I know it can sound a bit like a cliche. But doing that makes you pick the top ideas and the "out of the box" creative outlets.
Backing and choir tracks for Terra Interficit
Never the less, we started out with the songs that can be heard on Dienamics EP Bardo. Those first two song, Plead You Guilty and Terra Interficit, was actually the start of what was suppose to be Dienamics - Sonata Di Morte.
The main riff from Plead You Guilty was written some time before we moved to Sweden.
If I remember correctly, around November 2015.
Landing in Gothenburg in February 2016 we immediately continued forming the ideas we had and after a lot of back and forth, we where ready to recoded the first songs for the album. This was in November 2017.
Then Darkness Came
We are not gonna go to deep into the "dark ages" but as time when by and it all ended with our dear friend Gustav Lindqvist parted ways with the band and the pandemic struck, we decided to honor the work we had done, and release the two songs plus a demo "Failure To Destroy" from the Afterlife era as EP.

Stay tuned and join us for this journey behind the music, song by song.
Stay safe and Play It F.... Loud
All the best to you all from us in
