Lectern Interview

1. For those who don’t know you, can you state your name and your role in the band?
Fabio: Yes I am the singer and bassist.
Marco: Hello people. I’m Marco and I play drums and some times I do it pretty fine.

2. If your band were to be trapped into a horror movie, what would each member’s role be and who in the band, would make it to the sequel?
Fabio: I would be the Devil, Pietro the Alien, Gabriele the Mummy and Marco a Zombieninja.
Marco: I guess Fabio would be the killer for his temperament. I guess I would be the only one alive because I can actually use a weapon!

3. What has been your best memory as a band?
Fabio: By now? Incantation opening the show for them in Latvia, in Riga.
Marco: The video shooting week in my hometown. One day shootings, one day to the beach and so on, for seven days.

4. Can you talk a bit about how you got your band name?
Fabio: Looking for a short monicker that doesn’t sound pathetic, related in part to Satan in part to religion. Easy to remember, with the right gimmicks and features to be placed on our front cover illustrations and wherever!

5. In three words, how would you describe your music?
Fabio: Brutal! Nasty, Satanic!
Marco: Kick ass cacophony.

precept-of-delator6. Dring 2016, you released your album, Precept of Delator how would you describe the release to those looking to check it out?
Fabio: We really believe in that album, as the best thing we ever recorded. We became very fucking quick to compose, arrange and to recollect all the songs. Experience maybe! Some passages could be very intricate and twisty, especially when Pietro wrote some odd tempos, so the riffs have a waver result in the overall approach. That’s what makes our death metal imaginative. As we are in 2017, and we cannot record in the old way of the Nineties, you know, the live approach, as two different hands tracked the guitars, with every axemen’s different approach to the strings. That’s what lacks to me nowadays,
that anyone in the band could really leave the sign with his own instrument. It’s not a technical matter to me! Computers really help a band a lot today, but it leaves me that sense of unawareness anytime. Playing is always a sort of reckless action, I think!
Marco: It’s an album born from a difficult period for the band, so the sound is obscure and atmospheric. It’s everything you like from the 90’s death metal classics. Even Rob Barrett from Cannibal Corpse likes that. So what else you need?

7. If you had to choose one song off the album to show to someone hearing your band for the first time, which song would you pick?
Fabio: “Palpation Of Sacramentarian.”
Marco: “Maybe Fluent Bilocation.” The greatest to play, for me, is “Discorporation.”

8. Why do you think our readers should check out your album?
Fabio: I don’t think, I only hope that because it’s fast and brutal! It could also please some ears when hearing it! As we tried to took up all the elements to be still catchy and groovy with something to say through our lyrics and songs, and an old school layout and photo set! We don’t invent a note, and we don’t care about that! We feel a special amusement between us with this kind of underground sense of death metal! As a lot people and bands
feel to be detached day by day from this kind of music, as they don’t think to be so young anymore, we found our roots remaining so fucking old school anyway! For us, if it’s not death metal it’s just fuck you!
Marco: Well, I trust your readers about their tastes for some good music, especially without a great amount of skills required. And I guess a lot of them lived the 90’s, isn’t it?

9. What was your best memory while writing and recording the album?
Fabio: The days spent at The Outer Sound Studio seeking the best sounds and recollecting the early death metal days of the Nineties with the secrets of that bands, still undiscovered. Also speaking with Giuseppe as he moved from Sicily to Rome, with his brother, and about Catacomb a death metal band from our city since 1990, which shared also on the guitar Antonio Poletti, now mastermind in Deceptionist.
Marco: The disquisition about aliens and Bible scripts with Giuseppe Orlando (Ex Novembre, The Forshadowing, Airlines Of Terror), while mixing.

10. Thank you for doing this interview! Before we go, is there anything that you would like to say to our readers?
Marco: If you eat pizza with pineapple, I could seriously kill you! Italian Pride, can’t rid of it!
