I love the stuff that Comatose Music is releasing. Stuff like ABHORRENT DEFORMITY. Check them out if you like you metal extreme. Anders Ekdahl ©2018
Let’s start with your latest recording. When you look back at it now what kind of feelings do you have for it?
-We’re excited to finally see the material being released. A lot of the songs on this album are old to us since we wrote most of it back in 2015 and 2016. We’re our own biggest critics, so there are plenty of things we would change if given the chance, but overall, we’re happy with the recording.
I am fascinated by band names. What was it that made you settle on the one you have and what does it mean to you?
-We wish there was an interesting story behind our name, but in all honesty, it just sounded cool at the time. We had talked occasionally about changing our name to something a bit more meaningful, but it’s grown on us over the years.
What does it mean to you that there are people out there that actually appreciate and look forward to what you are doing?
-We’re just a group of guys that like to play music and enjoy each other’s company. The fact that others have allowed this band to become something bigger than that is amazing. We’re humbled by the support that we’ve received over the years.
How important is image to the band? What impression do you want the fans to get of the band?
-We’re just some dudes that love playing heavy music. No bullshit, no facades, we’re the same people on and off stage. If anything, we just want people to see us as approachable.
I am a huge fan of LP art work. How important is it to have the right art work for your album?
-Album art, to us, is just as important as the music. If someone has never heard your music, but they see your artwork and like it, they’ll be more likely to check you out.
We live in a superficial world today where you don’t exist if you are not on Youtube and Facebook. Has social media been only beneficial in socializing with the fans or is there a down side to it too?
-It’s only been helpful to us, but you can’t rely on it for everything. Word of mouth and face to face interactions are always better.
When you play in a band does it feel like you are a part of a massive community? That you belong to something that gives meaning to your life?
-There’s a sense of community that comes along with it. The death metal crowd is pretty tight knit, and this band has helped us meet a lot of amazing people.
When you are in the middle of it do you notice what state our beloved music scene is in? Is the scene healthy or does it suffer from some ailment?
-The music scene is strong and continues to grow. You might not always play a packed house, but people have jobs and can’t make it out to every show. It’ll take time for the scene to get back to what it once was, but it’s definitely moving in that direction.
How much of a touring band are you guys? How hard is it to get gigs outside of your borders?
-It’s been a while since we toured, and it’ll be a little bit before we hit the road again. We’ve never had any trouble getting shows.
What will the future bring?
-More shows, new faces, and more music.
