The Brewtality Festival is on again this year and HEAVY Music Magazine is proud to be a presenting partner. The event will be held on 8 August across two venues; The Tote and The Bendigo Hotel.
We caught up with Eye Of The Enemy to get an insight into the band, what you can expect from them at Brewtality Festival and more.
What’s your latest release?
The Vengeance Paradox (2014)
How has 2015 started out for your band? Please share some of the touring or release highlights.
We have just returned from a tour of Asia. We played eight shows in eight different cities across 5 countries. Four of the shows were in support of Fleshgod Apocalypse and the other four were headline shows. Ne Obliviscaris also played three of the Fleshgod Apocalypse shows and Psycroptic played two of the shows, so it was a bit of an Aussie assault.
Can you give us a few words that would make me come over to your stage and watch your set?
We have really stepped up our game with our live performance this year. Fresh off our Asian tour we’re still pumped and ready to go, so even if you have seen us before, you probably haven’t seen us this energetic and hungry for the stage before. On another note, it’s likely to be the last you will get to see us live for a while. Another album is on the way, and we want to focus all our energy on that so we probably won’t be back on stage until the album is finished.
What song is going to be the highlight of your Brewtality set, the one that will really engage with the crowd?
One song that had been missing from our set for a while was The Paradigm of Penance. It’s our longest song at around eight minutes and often it doesn’t make the cut, simply due to time. Over a few select shows though, we’ve been able to slip it back in and it has been a crowd favourite. It’s also fun as hell to play and probably one of our heaviest songs to date.
If there was one song in history that you could have written, what would it be and why?
Probably Happy Birthday. It has no riffs (so in my books not a real song), but I would be stinking rich.
