FAUSTTOPHEL (for The Grinder)

 FAUSTTOPHEL for The Grinder  

The Grinder


Thanks for taking the time to talk to The Grinder! You have a new album out. Tell us about it.
The album is called "No Liars Among the Fallen." This is our third full-length album and we have been working on it for the last two years.

Where was it recorded? Is all the material new?
The drums were recorded in Moscow in the SKYLARK studio. Guitars, keyboards, voices and special effects were recorded in the town of Balabanovo in the studio "INLINE". The bass guitar was made at home. All tracks are new except one. It is called "Spocusa". It was written back in 1998, in Poltava. The author of the verse and music Max Rudenko, he is already known for his work in our previous albums. There are two tracks on verses of one more old friend ... His name is Pavel Levchenko (Iron Mc Lion). The release also has verses by classics and contemporaries.

Where was it recorded? Is all the material new?
The only obvious difference in sound. Otherwise, the material is also filled with not new, but still creative musical ideas.

You are signed to a label. How did they help or support the process?
Yes, we are signed with METAL SCRAP RECORDS. But, the recording process is absolutely individual band work. Friends help more in this process. Many thanks for that!

What has been going on with the band between albums? Did you tour?
Do you have any new members?
Our band is not professional musicians. Most of us have no money for life playing music. Therefore, we do not have the opportunity to tour. Yes, we regularly rehearse and try to perform at international festivals. And it happens once or twice a year.
In 2014, three musicians came to the band. Since then, the lineup has not changed.

Who produced the new album and how did they effect the album?
Our band has no producers. All ideas and investments belong exclusively to team members.


Some like to record naked or in the dark with candles. Did you have any strange studio practices?
It seems to me that such practices are superfluous. At all times, studio time costs money! We cannot afford that.

Of course, tell us where to pick up your album and how to learn more about you.
You can purchase it both on media and in digital form. To do this, you can contact the distributor Label or directly to the band.

What is your plans now that the new album is out?
Our plans are to visit BLACKENED METAL FEST OPEN AIR in Tula and CROWNED METAL FEST in Belarus. Time will tell further.
