In a recent interview with Mark Kadzilawa From 69 faces of a rockAnd Demel mention about him “Let the world burn”: “We decided to write [some new material]. I didn’t want to make a full recording. Only ten tones… I have a baby at home. I have a five-year-old who has the highest energy and fatigue. So my time is so precious and I don’t have time to write an entire log. I just felt like, let’s take small steps with the band and see if we can write a few notes – maybe do three or four notes. It ended up being a five-song EP.”
About the songwriting process for “Let the world burn”And Demel He said, “Man, in the 16 years I’ve been in it [MACHINE HEAD]There were difficult moments, but in the end, there were none. And you’ve written great songs. I’ve always had riff sounds, but it was sexy… damn it, [I’m writing an] comprehensive song. I wanted to capture some moments from eternal nightmare [VIO-LENCE‘s 1988 debut album]There are some signatures violence The voices I wanted to perpetuate and carry on. But also, since I’ve been playing batting quite a bit as well, my right hand has gotten a lot stronger. I play the best I’ve ever played. So I pay the rent. These are not songs you pick up in Guitar Center and only play in Guitar Center; It is very difficult to play. I wanted to pay everyone in this sense.”
He continued, “I need [Perry] To be able to accept this material in a language I can speak with. I had to teach him how to understand my language. And it was difficult. It was exhausting. He and I were in a room…Mostly, this recording was written musically…I wrote the music but with Berry For… 99 percent of it was just me and him in a room we’re knocking on. So I’m very proud of him for what he played in scoring. They are some of his best shows. It’s definitely the best game I’ve ever scored. near the end of my time in [MACHINE HEAD]I haven’t been tracking beats, so it’s been a long time since I’ve actually tracked a metal log. I did it for BPMD Log and track those beats, but damn, that’s a record, so tracking the beats was a refreshing and cool thing to me. We did it with Juan Ortiaga In place, and it’s great to work with. I had a good time. It was just a great experience to sign up with Berry. I’m kind of letting Shun He does his own thing as he lowers his vocals. Shun is just ruining it on these songs, man; His voice is unique. And no one is like him. He’s evil, man. Because he had a real high record that he was singing in 1988, and there are moments of that, really, now. But the place is dark, man – it sings the dark. I love it too. I love his words. He’s the favorite songwriter I’ve ever worked with. He’s smart, smart and he has something to do. I totally enjoy his words.”
