(In this latest installment of his “Get To the Point” series, KevinP poses 5 questions to drummer Craig Smilowski of Philadelphia’s Rellik, whose debut album Spiraling Infinite Chaos was released last week by Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.)
K: The band has been around since 1987, but never released any material until 2004. Now, 11 years later, you are finally getting to your debut LP. What the hell took so long?
C: Well, as far as a full-length goes it’s just the way things turned out. The band were all working different schedules and writing/rehearsing when possible. And had quite a few member changes along the way. Now with this established line-up, we have plenty of ideas coming in, which makes for better song writing.
