Universal Theory Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Hello there! It is a big pleasure to be here today.
We continue promoting the new album while we are working on new songs.
I am even beginning to think about the possibility of looking for musicians.

2.In August you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

The new album has a heavier sound and louder guitars, more in accordance with my roots.
Also it has a more intense sound in comparison with the debut album but we keep a deep and melodic atmosphere.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

The lyrics continue exploring experiences, thoughts, dreams, desires,
all combined with the emotions of life.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Universal Theory'?

I usually read science books and when I thought about the name,
I really loved it, because there are many Universal Theories.
These include emotions of life in terms that are at the same time both personal and universal.

5.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you planning on expanding the line up in the future or do you chose to remain a duo?

In “The Most Attractive Force” we have had the collaboration of Beth Hart
-an excellent Pianist and friend from Manchester- in the last track called “Light Vein”.
In Spain It is hard to find musicians who like and want to play this kind of music but as I said before
I am beginning to think about the idea of looking for musicians.
Hopefully later we can form a band and play all over the world.

6.The last album was released on Metal Hell Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

Also the debut album "Mystery Timeline" was also released on Metal Hell Records.
Metal Hell Records began in 2012 and is an independent heavy metal label from Minnesota, US.
They promote unique bands like "Tengger Cavalry" (Mongolian Folk Metal) and now "Tamerlan" from Sidney (Symphonic Black Metal).

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of goth and metal?

The response of people has been great so far.
Fortunately we are continually receiving very good feedback from the public and very good reviews from the Media.

8.Are any of the band members also involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?

Not for now.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

As I said before hopefully I can form a band and play all over the world.
Rock & Metal music must be enjoyed in Live.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

At the moment our biggest influences could be a mix between Tiamat & Anathema
but these days I am listening Machined Head, Akira Yamaoka, Nick cave OST from Film "The Road".

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Mainly Science, especially "Physics". I love reading sciences books
even though It is hard to understand it.
I love TV series like "The Walking Dead", "24", "Supernatural" or "True Blood"
Films & Video Games.
Animal Lover.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

It has been a great pleasure talking to you!
