This interview with the vocalist Andreas "Dread" Axelsson from the Swedish death / thrash metal band Incapacity was done through e-mail in June 2003.
Hello, how are you doing?
I´m ok thank you...
Your debut album "Chaos Complete" will be released on July 24th if
everything goes as planned, could you tell us about the album?
It´s an album that was made very fast and a little stressed but
great,the hero of the band is in my opinion Christian who has worked a
on arragements and stuff...allthough everybody was involved of
he carried a heavy load of it and of course Henrik(drums) who learned
songs really fast.Musicwise it´s a mix of Thrash and Death Metal and it
recorded in Black Lounge Studios with Jonas. Can´t really tell you more
have to listen to it and make your own opinion.
Incapacity was basically formed before the band members were assembled,
don't you feel that you're taking advantage of who you are instead of
letting the music speak for itself?
agree it´s a little bit weird...but we we´re really certain of the
that we could do a kickass album,had we´ve noticed that it was a dead
and we were´nt 100% satisfied with it we would not have done it...So in
big way the music really speaks for itself we just had more fire under
asses to do a great album wich we´ve done!!!!
You were about to record a music video for one of the songs off your
album, could you tell us more about this project.
I´ts only plans so far...but Anders (bass) has access to professional
cameras and stuff so we´ll do it but it´s going to be later this
