Alex Gilbert of All About The Music recently had the opportunity to
chat with Kevin Quirion and Steve Asheim of ORDER OF ENNEAD. Beginning
with the band's transformation from COUNCIL OF THE FALLEN to all
things surrounding the creation of ORDER OF ENNEAD's self-titled debut
and the ever-increasing connection to death metal legends, DEICIDE,
there was no stone left unturned in this interview with members of the
masterfully introspective extreme metal act.

Kevin Quirion on ORDER OF ENNEAD's writing process: "As far as writing
goes, I'll bring a near finished song to Steve at the practice space.
He'll add his drums and we sometimes change the structure or add this
and that to make it flow better. Then we'll record the drums with just
a scratch guitar and listen to it for a couple of days. After we have
enough songs for an album we will record the drums again, but this
time by themselves. Then I go over to Scott's and record the guitars.
Scott will then add his bass and come up with some clever fills. Then
the vocals are added. I usually have to lyrics written way in advance.
Then we bring in John Li to add some solo themes and get some ideas.
The solos that go onto the final CD version usually are created in the
studio with parts of ideas and themes taken from the demo, but
sometimes they are totally spontaneous."

ORDER OF ENNEAD's self-titled debut album was recorded at Audio Hammer
Studios in Sanford, Florida with MARK LEWIS (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, BURY
YOUR DEAD), and consists of 11 tracks of blasting death metal
intensity, mixed with touches of black metal melodrama all wrapped up
into one of the most intelligent and introspective releases of the year.
