Let's break the ice. I think that's an appropriate, maybe a little cheesy, line to use since your next album is called the "Frozen Shrines of Obsydyana". But, anyway, I'm actually really curious as to how your act came together. What brought the band together to create such Sci-Fi inspired music?
p5YbORG!: - "Completely appropriate, for a ruthless noisy winter storm is coming!! The band comes from many influences from sci-fi movies, videogames, industrial, electronic, metal, rock bands and soundtracks!"

Are there any specific movies or games or even bands that you really tried to follow after or use for inspiration?
p5YbORG!: - "The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Stargate; Starcraft, WoW, Halo, just to name a few."

Another thing that I've been dying to know is how did you guys decide on your costumes? All your photographs show off these bizarre outfits, but they are absolutely kick ass and awesome.
p5YbORG!: - "It was up to each one of us, always trying to maintain elements in common like colors, and materials."

I remember browsing YouTube at one point, and I saw you did a cover for Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance". She isn't exactly the type I would expect to see getting involved in the Industrial and Dark Electro scene. How exactly did this come together?
p5YbORG!: - "I like that song a lot and after listening to it so many times, I said, "why not?" letás give it a shot! At the end was a lot of fun, either recording it and playing it live!"

Either way, it was still great. I've also seen remixes for "We Will Rock You" and even the old Holiday special, "Angels We Have Heard on High". I've added that one to my very own dark Christmas playlist.
p5YbORG!: - "I love making this odd covers/remixes, that wouldn't fit Psyborg Corp. at first sight, but then they all turn out to be great songs to work with! I have a lot of fun working on them."

One thing that I loved about "The Mechanical Renaissance" was how a lot of the songs came out as more of a story rather than lyrics that one has to interpret. Are you taking the same approach with "The Frozen Shrines of Obsydyana"?
p5YbORG!: - "Well, "The Mechanical Renaissance" is indeed a conceptual album, but without a story or a continuity. "The Frozen Shrines of Obsÿdÿana", is definitely a story, an Opera if you will!"

Now, I cannot tell you how many times I have played "Cryovolcano Terrorzone" full blast on my headphones while listening to the song on your YouTube channel. Is this song like a representation of the album, or is it a mere preview of what is to come?
p5YbORG!: - " It's just one bite! The album comes with songs in many flavors!!"

This is a more personal question from me to you, but as far as tours go, do you plan on making any trips to the US? I would love to see you guys live at some point in my life.
p5YbORG!: - "We want to tour the US so bad!! We are just waiting for the right time to do it. It depends on the promoters there though! We hope many will get interested so we can make this dream come true!"

And, as a final statement, when can your precious fans actually expect a release date on the album? I saw that you guys said it's almost done. I think even I'm dying a little just to know when it's coming out.
p5YbORG!: - "Yesss, the production is almost finished, however we have still work to do in the visual side, costumes, and post-production. At this moment we don't have a release date yet, as this is a process subject to many changes and circumstances. To be honest, "The Frozen Shrines of Obsÿdÿana" is requiring a lot of hard work and some bumps in the road. But trust me, it's worth the wait!!!"

It seems like a ton of effort is being put into the album, not only with that, but I even saw that you were asking fans to be a part of the project, to record and send lyrics to you. That sounds fucking awesome.
p5YbORG!: - "Yes!! We wanted to involve our friends all over the world in at least one song so we can all be a part of the band. The experiment has been overwhelming, and we'll definitely do it again in future releases."

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
