Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Band is formed in 2008 and we played cover songs for about a year then we started to make our own. From the beginning we changed few members but we always played as a four piece. In January 2010 our singer quit and we where forced to continue as a trio. Later that year I splited up with bass and drum player and only I remained so for over a year this is one-man band and will stay like that.

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music? 
I can describe it as fast old school Black/Thrash Metal. Mostly bands like Mayhem,Old-Sepultura,Morbid Saint,Old-Bathory,Sodom and Destruction influenced my music alot.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
If they like it they shoud buy it and show a support to a band.

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
2011 - Deathstrike (Demo - Silent Scream Records)
2011 - Torn Apart (EP - Self-released)

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
For now we are not active live. I am curently searching for the Session Drummer but I hope soon we will start rehearsing some new and old songs and hit the road again.

What sould labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Karijes is old school black/thrash band coming from Serbia.Our new EP 'Torn Apart' is online and it is free for everyone. Next year I will be recording first full-lenght album so follow us and listen to the new stuff.

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
As I said main plan for 2011 is to find Session Drummer and to play live as much as we can. For 2012 is to enter the studio and record first full-lenght album that will be darker,sicker and even faster then the last recording.
