Invertia's Dave Discusses About One Wicked Release

Industrial black metal act Invertia has been active as of late. They got signed with Ohm Resistance Records and released their sophomore album "Another Scheme of the Wicked", the follow-up to their previous self-titled debut release. Frontman vocalist, guitarist, and bassist Dave Coppola discusses of the follow-up and what lies ahead.

1. Let us get started by filling in our readers as to what the band has been up to in the past year.

Dave: Hi Natalie! Its been a great year!  Since we last spoke INVERTIA has been signed to Ohm Resistance Records and we released our sophomore album "Another Scheme of the Wicked". We played some live shows including a showcase for Ohm Resistance. We got to play with one of my favorite bands The Blood of Heroes, so yeah its been a crazy year.

2. How did you and Ohm Resistance Records come together? Are you pleased with what they have been doing for you thus far?

Dave: Well we had some of there artists remix some of the songs for the album such as End.User and Submerged.  I also had Justin K. Broadrick of Godflesh do a remix and he is also on the Ohm Resistance label in The Blood of Heroes. So it all just kind of fit nicely.  We are very pleased with Ohm Resistance for sure!  We will also be on a on a picture disc with the singer from At the Gates, where we did the music and he sang over it, so we are psyched for that as well.  That release will also feature remixes as well as work with the Science Slam Sonic Explorers, and the track is called "Deep Time Predator".

3. Can you tell us how this album differs from the previous ones? What can we expect and what is the message behind it?

Dave: This album differs in the sense that we just got better at honing in on our craft.  The message is one of paranoia, darkness, it's a hatred for the church and state and a genuine disdain for all things lurking in our shadows and in the cracks!

4. What was the recording process like this time around? Was there anything different that happened or was it the same old studio thing?

Dave: It was the exact studio we used for the self titled album, but again this time with a little more experience going into it.

5. How was the vibe in the studio?

Dave: It always is a blast, it's what we do, so we always look forward to it.  So when your doing something you like to do it just flows, most of the time.  There are times that the whole session goes nowhere but that's few and far between.

6. Did the band have any definitive goals they were shooting for before the recording process began for this album?

Dave: It was just the next set of songs really.  I don't make a lot of goals going into an album other than finishing it.  I like to wait for the surprises in the studio so it's not boring. On the flip side of that, other things are very rehearsed before entering the studio.  But sometimes even the rehearsed stuff will bring the biggest surprises.  That's the best part of the creative process for us.

7. How does the album art relate to the music on the album?

Dave: Damn, we got lucky on that.  The art was done by an artist out of Brooklyn, NY named SHVL FCE.  It shows the chaos of the album, the shapes and shades of gray and black really show a certain misery and grimness that captured the music perfectly!

8. Did you use any new instrumentation you never used in the recording process before?

Dave: No we did the drum machines, guitars, bass and vocals but the newer material will have some more FX than previous material.

9. What does "Another Scheme of the Wicked" mean to you all?

Dave: It means: We are back for another round of madness, so hop on board!

10. Did you feel any pressure to do this follow-up?

Dave: Yeah for sure, I new people would react differently to it but it had to be better than the last.  If feel we achieved that we this album.

11. Where is the new material headed?

Dave: It's nuts! This album will be more dynamic in the sense that everything won't be a gazillion miles an hour and constantly in your face. There will be some material that's slower and colder that's just nasty!

12. What's your favorite song on the album right now?

Dave: My favorite on the album is "Cross-Eyed Christ" right now, my favorite song to play live is "Void of Community".

13. Have you heard of Invertia?

Dave: Who????????? Hahaha!!!! Thank you, Natalie!!!!
