Chris (Glare Of The Sun)
SPB: Your record Theia is over an hour long. To contrast that: what is your favorite record of around twenty minutes and what would you take from that record to Glare Of The Sun?
Chris: Twenty minutes seems tough first, but it's not, if you spent your youth with hardcore/punk or grindcore like Martin and me!
For example, one of Martin's favourite albums ever is "Back from Samoa" from Angry Samoans. It's about 17 minutes long. Man, we wrote songs longer than this!
I for myself love stuff like Nasum, Exhumed, Pig Destroyer... they all had pretty short albums in terms of length, but with a huge impact on my musical development!
What they all have in common, is the pure, raw energy coming with their sound! This is what we are trying to achieve as well! Getting away from polished and squeezed out productions, letting moods and energy get through.
