As prologue seems cheap talkin’ for Deathsters….

Good Evening! Starting up, please tell us a few words about Black Path.
We started back in 2009. We were a group of five friends aiming to play death metal. We wanted our music to evolve into something more, so we added Extreme metal elements, while at the same time moving towards Technical death metal, without sticking to certain speed or sound. We just play what we feel like, without giving it much thought.

How did you come up with the name of the band? Does it have any special significance for you?
Actually no…We were just looking for a fitting name for the band and this sounded just right.

Tell us about your releases so far, “Bloodshed” (2011) “Born Underground” (2012) and “Dominion In Pain” (2013) .
“Bloodshed” and “Born Underground” were the first tracks we released. We heard many positive comments both from fans and experienced critics of the genre, like Ed Veter (Infidel Amsterdam) and Metal Hammer Greece, which rated us with 9/10 and titled “release of the month” the demo which contained both these songs in May 2013. “Dominion In Pain” was released last has already received much acclaim, especially the song “Ministry of Sin”, which was also our first video clip release.

What are your main influences? Which bands helped in creating your sound?
They are quite a lot….Each band member listens to different stuff, from Progressive to Grindcore and Classical music. In general, our music has influences from classic Groove metal up to Technical/Melodic Death/Black metal and Doom… We were particularly influenced by Sepultura, Bloodbath, All Shall Perish, Lamb of God…Glenn Benton (Deicide / Vital Remains) and George Corpsegrinder (Cannibal Corpse) had a lot to do with our vocals.

What about your thematology? (lyrics etc)
We don’t follow a certain theme. Whatever we find that expresses us….Death, despair, religion.

Do you have any plans for the near future? Or concerning some live gigs?
Nowadays we are composing now songs. I can already say that the songs have leveled up in every aspect from our previous releases. Meanwhile we are preparing other things until the new release arrives.

How easy is it for a new to promote its recordings? If not what are the difficulties and which ones did you face?
The difficulties in our country are endless in all areas, so yes, we have encountered a lot. It is important that a musician exploits his experience and setbacks in order to make music that expresses his feelings and shares his psychosynthesis with the fans.

Have you listened to any recent release, local or not, which excited you?
Yes, among which is Behemoth – The Satanist, Young and in the way – When life comes to Death, Down – IV Part II, Cannibal Corpse – A Skeletal Domain, Septic Flesh – Titan.

Is there anything else you would like to add as Black Path?
Thanks to everyone that has supported us and keeps supporting us until now in everything we do. We will keep compensating them in our way. We thank Metal Invader for giving us the opportunity to say a few words.

The epilogue is yours…!
You can find lots of stuff in our facebook page , as well as in our youtube channel  and all the social media. Stay on the Path…
