Interview: Alan Grnja of Distant

Recently after a few Jack Daniel’s and coke, I logged onto YouTube and went to a channel where I discover bands for the first time or bands that have released a new music video. The channel Slam Worldwide is something I would recommend when you feel like experimenting on the more extreme to metal and on this night, I watched Aeons of Oblivion by Netherlands/Slovakia sextet Distant. Before I knew what I was doing, I had the song on repeat and repeat and repeat once again as it was that good! A couple of days later, in my inbox was an email from Distant’s manager asking if I would do an interview with the band. I am not going to lie here but I started shaking like a leaf but having the interview with Distant vocalist Alan was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to seeing them on their UK tour with Mental Cruelty next April.

Distant are a band that in my eyes are similar to one time touring buddies Ingested, they can do no wrong at the moment. Looking at their discography since their inception in 2014, Distant have amassed a huge and diverse amount of releases that are sure fire to keep the name of Distant in your face. They have used this lockdown period to their advantage and with their latest nineteen track album, (yes, you did read that right) and with it being over an hour long, they sure have been busy.

With Aeons of Oblivion, they have closed the triumvirate of the Tyrannotophia trilogy and also included three new songs which should whet your appetite as for what’s to coming next. Enjoy the interview with Alan and look them up all over social media and trust me, they wont be that difficult to find.
