1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1 . We're four guys than 25 years from Paris.
The training is drums, bass, two guitarists including a singer.
The project began there almost a year now!
2.Recently you have released your first album, how would you describe your musical sound?
2.We self-produced this album because we wanted to build it as we thought , in the composition of songs up to record on tape.
We seek to recreate up what we do in our repeated on Paris.
So we record in the same studio where we play for a year, without guitar overdub and without artifice
The overall sound on this demo is very raw and drowned and that's how we see our compositions because the general atmosphere is an integral part of these pieces because it gives another dimension to the melodic links.
3.The band was formed early this year but have already released their first album, do you feel that you put a lot of time and effort into the band?
3.We have taken the time to choose some songs, and to reserve the other depending on the project.
For this demo, we chose the first 4 songs of the group, but one year of work we were able to prepare other compositions for other future projects.
We expected to be ready for release this demo, but also to have enough material not to lower the pace.
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with their music?
4.There is no fixed subject, or something that we are prohibited.
There is a lot of work on the texts. They are written so that even detached from the music, it is balanced and is a true sense.
They are written in rhyme, as a a poem or prose.
Although for the moment the lyrics are not in booklet or accessible, know that we are looking up for each piece created more text on a music than song lyrics.
For pieces of this demo, DELUGE about changing role, depending on the situation between two people in the current society and A LA CROISEE DES AMES discusses the influence of society on the way we think but another piece talking about transformation of the sun.
It is each time different subjects, but each time they are topics that we believe timely
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Cepheide'?
5.Since we are french and that all texts are written in french also, it was found hollowing of a french word and especially in adequacy with the atmosphere that we seek in our recreate songs
6.Has the band done any live shows or is this strictly a studio project?
6.We will surely make live shows before the next album, but for the moment nothing concrete is planned
7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
7.For now, we get to do without and see that everything is self-funded for this demo we do not seek.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of atmospheric black metal?
8.The project comes out of the shadows and we are not looking to do a lot of promo, however we had a lot of very positive and encouraging feedback, a lot of support which is not hoped, so we were pleasantly surprised that people be sensitive to our vision of black metal!
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
9.We all have parallel projects so when we formed this group is really the aim to make every effort to do our best have, we will see that this will give!
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?

a great interest in cinema which sharpens our thinking in another form of art equally wide
Astronomy is also omnipresent. Has directly inspired us our cover, the title of some songs and the way to write texts
