In my recent review of Invertia’s second album Another Scheme for the Wicked, I wrote that it was intriguing, harsh and exciting; my viewpoint hasn’t changed. This is an interesting and novel band and they have released an album worthy of taking the time to get to know it. Questions were asked, and answers were given…
For those who are unfamiliar with your band – introduce yourself!
We are an industrial metal band from the Northeast USA who write progressive oppressive music that you should be paying attention to because your rights are being deprived from you and will soon be taken away by those who oppress you.
Give us a bit of background to Invertia
When we met we knew it was something different from the metal crowd or other genres or if it would even work…that was the second week. And here we are in week…604…
Its funny you ask. You can not put us into a box full of hashtags but we are entirely influenced by Sabbat, Hank III, Celtic Frost, Slayer, Black Sabbath, Bathory, and The Misfits.
What are you listening to at the moment that you would like to recommend?
We don’t listen to music because we have been rehearsing for months. You tell us, has anything good come out?
What did you want to achieve with your new album?
We wrote and wrote and wrote and scratched and wrote more and scratched more and rewrote and ripped apart and scratched it all before we wrote this because we wanted to.
What can you tell us about the lyrics?
We write about the exposure of the daily rhetoric of our culture to provoke thought and action. So long as it is not at any of our shows. We are trying to concentrate.
Give us a bit of information on the songwriting process.
Actually we have been writing this way for years but now we have added Kurt Gluck from Submerged & Ohm Resistance our record label to help us write which will change things up in who knows what way.
That’s a good question. The artists chosen are some of the best in their genres and you get to see how another artist interprets the song & how their creativity comes out of them through the music that we wrote.
Are you happy with how it all turned out?
It is a fresh take. It’s exciting.
How do you see your songs/direction developing in the future?
We want to grow and expand our sound/style and expertise as much with our next album as we did with our first and second album.
What’s next for Invertia?
Maybe a mini-tour? Thanks, we appreciate it. Now, we need to sleep. Buy the album here: https://ohmresistance.bandcamp.com/album/another-scheme-of-the-wicked
