What's the story behind the band name Eastern Front?
It was the most brutal battlefield in World War II and the most people killed.
Since we are brutal band and British and very intressted in history it seemed logic to have Eastern Front as the band name.
What are the lyrics about on the album?
All are stories from World War II and most from the Eastern Front. We get inspiration for the lyrics from movies and books. Reading at lot.
The album isn't really a concept album. It's the concept of the band. There are so much content so the forthcoming albums will be about WWII as well.
Which song are you looking forward to play live the most?
It varies with each member. In a live environment it becomes not so much the song but the whole band
How come you picked the Sonic Train Studios to record the album?
Because last year we were on tour with Lord Belial and we got along great. So Anders Backelin already knew most of the songs and us as well.
What are your favorite bands?
Hate Forest,Warning, Hypocracy are just some of our favorites.
What bands have you toured with?
Lord Belial & Graveworm last year and we'll tour with Taake, Hellheim and Vulture Industries during the spring in the UK.
And what bands would you like to tour with?
Lord Belial and Immortal would be great.
Any plans to come and play in Sweden?
Hopefully to come and do some club gigs or festivals maybe this year.
What is the best moment in this band so far?
Walking out on stage in Bulgaria to hear the crowd screaming Eastern Front was just incredible.
And beeing here in Sweden for the first time while recording our debut album.
What can we expect from Eastern Front in the future?
The album.Lots of touring.We are doing many festivals around Europe this year and we've already begun writing for the next album.

Eastern Front comments on:
Sonic Train Studios: It's fantastic. We can sleep and eat here. And the main room has such a nice feel to it. Even the small guitarr room is just fantastic.
