2015년에 독일 매체 "UNDERGROUND EMPIRE the ONLINE EMPIRE"와 이루어진 인터뷰이며, 구글 번역기를 통해 영어로 번역하였습니다. 새앨범 "Venom"에 대한 짤막하고 집중적인 인터뷰가 이루어졌습니다.










For almost six years, Chris Impellitteri has had his fans wait for a new album, but with "Venom" the guy finally gave us the long-sighted stainless steel device.

How it came to this publication pause and with which the guitar-wizard was engaged in that, however, had not to be questioned for long. The string artist also turned out to be a very talkative contemporary, and, as if shot out of the gun.


Respect! "Venom" is powerful! What was your intention? Did you have an idea of ​​where the "toxic" journey should go?


We had a common vision and wanted to record as a band the best possible album for us. As an additional requirement, we had also imposed ourselves on the fact that all our stylistic preferences were combined and contained as a homogeneous mixture. I know you will always hear something like this, but in our case, it was really the focus that we were mainly trying to impress with the songs. This is the only way to make sure the fans find the part as good.




But you have already left your time, hmm?


It may be a long time since IMPELLITTERI came out with an album to the start, already clear. But whoever thinks we were lying on the rotten skin, is wrong! After the release of our last album we were on tour in the States and played on the "Sweden Rock". After that it should also start with the songwriting for the current album. A call from SONY MUSIC provided the band quite abruptly a work break.


Because?


The label was about to make a band like Japanese "anime cartoon films" and was looking for a guitarist. At first, I was rather skeptical because I was not really interested in cartoons of this kind, but when I was told who was going to take part in this company, which was called ANIMETAL USA, I did not have to think about it . I've worked with some of the world's best players, including Graham Bonnet, to work on a project with Rudy Sarzo and Mike Vescara. In itself, I thought it would be a one-time and only a matter of the Japanese market, but the interest was very big worldwide, so I can even betray that there will be another album.




Beware of toxic!


Roger that. Among other things, you did a "dashboard metal-guitar hero" together with the current drummer Jon Dette, and also singer Rob Rock was busy in the meantime. That means IMELLITTERI were almost broke and had to be more or less "reanimated", or not?


In a way already. Since Rob used this time for DRIVER and his Soloband, everything fit well, and we were able to "live" all of them. As a result, the motivation for IMPELLITTERI once again rose, and we were able to dedicate ourselves 100% to the "Venom" process. I would add, however, that although I am responsible for most of the ideas and melodies, the "band-feeling" has once again been incredibly important. Only Rob was able to put on the numbers the icing on the cake with his song melodies and lyrics. I do not want to miss this collective, since I can still be valued as a virtuoso!


This is because "comics" in musical form can not even be found on "Venom".


Exactly! Cartoon music as in ANIMETAL is not to be found on the new spin, but exclusively Heavy Metal in Reinkultur. The title is quite a program, because we feel the tracks are real "poisoners", which will also work on the stage. My goal now is to finally perform with you in Germany. It can not be that I have never been able to play with you in the business after so long. Something must change!


We are also of the same opinion, Chris, and you are pressing for this - quite selflessly, of course - all thumbs!
