If you like your death metal brutal look no further than ROTTEN EVISCERATION. Anders Ekdahl ©2018
What kind of vision did you have when you started and how has it changed over the years?
-When we started the vision it was just playing to have fun and get all our adrenaline with our friends. Currently, our vision is different, we want to sound good live, record as many albums as possible and stay persistent in time with this project called ROTTEN EVISCERATION
Does location mean anything today? We used to hear about how it was all location, location, location back in the days if you wanted to make it big? That you had to come from a certain place to be sure to make it.
-We are aware that the band could do better in a different location than South America. For that reason, we are spreading our death metal to places like Europe, USA and Australia. We believe that they are places where we will be more valued compared to South America. Especially because, the sound and the influences that we have are not the classic influences coming from the Brazilian school.
What is it like to be a in a band and to get to tour all over the world? What kind of feelings do that bring about?
-Playing in an extreme music band causes a sea of emotions. The emotions range from violence to the pride that causes watching the fans enjoy our music. Still, we have not made any world tour, we hope soon to be playing for Europe or USA.
What kind of feedback have you had on your music, your latest album and in general? How important is feedback?
-For us it is very important the feedback of the specialized criticism and above all of our fans. The feedback allows us to improve our sound and even the execution of our musical instruments. We have received very good comments and positive reviews about the promo single that we launched in August 2018.
How do you know that you have written a “hit” song? Is there a particular feeling you get when you know that this is the one, this is the big “make it song”?
-You know that the song is a HIT when the listener continues listening to it after the first minute and does not want to stop listening to it until it ends. Then he tells you, It’s all sacred shit!
We believe that our promo single called “Ascending from the Putrid Tomb” is going to be a hit, because it has everything you need to blow fans’ heads both lyrically and musically.
As I am no musician I will never got to know the difference of analogue and digital. Can you explain the difference to me? what are the pros and cons of analogue V/S digital?
-This is a great debate among the musicians. While digital technology allows you to sound good without having to make millions in investments, the question arises if its sound is better than analog sound. We believe that there is no absolute truth in this subject. The quality of the final digital sound depends on the technology that has been used therefore the result can be very variable. Regarding our preferences, we like the analog sound (heads of tube amplifiers) for its warmth and better arrival in the human ear. However, for a tour it is impossible to carry all that equipment, so the use of processors is a good option.
What is it like to have people you never met liking your music and singing along to it at gigs
-It is a great experience of life to meet new people who love what you do. Drinking a beer while we talk to them about extreme music are things that enrich our spirits and drive us to keep going on the metal path.
How important are lyrics to you guys? Do you have any messages that you want to get forward?
-Our lyrics are important and therefore we take care of them. The lyrics are based on horror movies, necrophilic dreams and sadistic fantasies. Obviously, our songs are horror musical performances that are purely fiction and we do not want to induce anyone to unearth cadavers hahahahaha !!!!.
I love a really cool cover but I get the feeling that today with all this digital uploading/downloading people aren’t that concerned about artwork. How do you feel?
-We agree with you on the importance of a cover. Usually, the first thing the fans of an album remember is their cover. For that reason, for our new album we have opted for a cover not so overloaded with elements and with a central image that is easy to remember.
What does the future hold?
-In the immediate future we have the release of our debut album in November 2018. For the beginning of 2019 a tour in Peru and Chile and we will launch a 4-way split with 3 European bands. Thank you very much for the interview and we hope that your readers will enjoy it as much as we do
