Pulverizer By Alex Vale
The backbone of Axia‘s music is a hybrid raid of extreme paced songs, infused with infinite levels of self-inflicted negativity and hopelessness. Axia was crafted under the zero-centric vision of four oblivion individuals known for collaborations with The Ominous Circle, Holocausto Canibal, among many others. Mastered by Peter in de Betou (Arch Enemy, Amon Amarth, Meshuggah, Hypocrisy, among many others).
To be honest, we’re totally disconnected from the mundane social/political reality. I would say that our music is the negation of a material existence, the lack of identity and the absolute loss of individuality that causes a mind to collapse and send us in a downward spiral of failure. The consequence is a pernicious Influence, that takes advantage of our moral imperfections and brings up the idea of hopelessness and suicide.
To make a great metal record without sounding dated it takes a lot of talent and attitude. I think that the composing skills are the ultimate tool from any musician, the ability to project good and memorable music will always surpass the productions tricks used In a given song. A great metal record is the result of a visionary artist that manages to pull the most out of his/her creativity and translate it into an outstanding piece of musical art. Is quite difficult to select specific values, I guess that’s a feeling which combines a huge amount of factors and variables. Personally, I feel quite inspired by landscapes, poetry and cinema. I really love art in general; every moment has a suitable art form that may impact us and make our lives less miserable.
Axia is the archetype of negativity and death, it was conceived under the influence of total misery and despair. Is like an epidemic influence that gives the listener a leap to his/her suicide. Perhaps the greatest inspiration was, in fact, the pain of having to condone with our futile existence. Being trapped in a life of ephemeral everything.
We do not use any fiction and/or fantastic subjects in our creations. I think the fantastic/fairy is a valuable source of inspiration; it creates diversity. It would be quite boring if all the bands were writing about philosophy, death and beer. I’m not a great fan of such orientation, but I appreciate and admire those who do it.
