JUL 24 - INTERVIEW FOR ARGENTINE WEBSITE LATIN METAL
Latin Metal: “Traumatic Scenes” is a conceptual album based in David Goyer´s film “The Invisible”, a thriller that deals with two worlds: the one of the living, and the one left for the dead, where a crime must be solved. Are movies, as well as liteature, good sources of inspiration for SupreMa? Are there possibilities of exploring new forms of art in search for ideas, for forthcoming albums?

Douglas Jen: Personally I like all kinds of artistic forms. I like movies, songs, paintings, designers and some artistic periods such as surrealism, nihilism and abstractionism. I always try to get inspirations from other areas, for example our first video of “Nightmare” was inspired by a Belgian surrealistic artist, René Magritte, that brought us a lot of ideas to explain how the people could be tortured inside of a nightmare and what slips into their mind when they are chained on to it. I can’t explain well but when I see some paintings or movies it inspires me to write sounds, and when I listen to some songs or sounds I can imagine some colors... It’s a mix of senses and I try to keep all linked. In the “Traumatic Scenes Tour” we bring all of these things, the songs are linked with scenario, clothes, video, merch and each detail is linked between each other. Furthermore the songs or lyrics I always write some histories and for “Fury and Rage” video I wanted to write an insane screenplay and it brought life to the song, it's like it has created its own pulse. I'm already writing songs for the new album, and I'm thinking about some themes and also other movies, perhaps it could happen again.

JUN 16 - INTERVIEW FOR EUROPEAN WEBSITE METAL TEMPLE
Metal temple: When it comes to Power Metal in Brazil, I have been noticing that in overall both Heavy and Power Metal have been catching quite attention. When playing locally do you feel at home, meaning when it comes to audience’s responses or would you be more comfortable in Europe, which this type of music is rather much more appreciated?

Douglas Jen: Actually you can find audience for all metal styles in Brazil. The audience listens to all styles from hard rock to extreme metal, and the concerts always have a great audience to enjoy your performance. Perhaps you’ve heard more about power metal bands in Brazil for the last few years, but the country has great bands in thrash metal, progressive and also traditional metal. For the most part of North and Northeast the crowd appreciates the thrash and death metal style. Some of our musician friends have told us about the European crowd and we received only good references. They've told us that our kind of music pending to power and progressive metal could be appreciated more in Europe and also Japan, and it increases more and more our desire to do our first run in these territories. We want a lot to be near our European fans.
