In February we conducted an interview with frontman Fedor Buzilevich, he said:
‘Holy Blood was formed in 1999. At first, we played Metalcore, then our music become heavier – played Brutal Death and since 2001 decided to play Melodic Death. At the same time I started listening Folk Black, so it influenced on changes in music style. The first album was a shining example of searching our sound and style. After it, in our second album, we determinated Folk Black Death and exactly that album became the calling card of the group, enabled us to become known not only in Ukraine. The third album was continuation of the second. About this time I and former guitarist Mikhail Rodionov recorded old Holy Blood songs from the period when we played Brutal Death, and released it under a different name – Requital. Working on the fourth album, we decided to differ the sound and make it fully in Folk Metal style. During creating the fourth album band members had been changed. With the new members there was a very, very long delay in album creation. In the end of 2013 band members changed (again) and I’ve decided to create and record the fifth album on my own. This album will be in Viking Death style, but with deviations to Folk Doom Metal. I think the new album will become a new calling card of Holy Blood.’
