Necrot Interview

>> 1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

Hey thanks for the interview! The last time we were in the studio was September of 2013. Since then we have done four tours and wrote new songs for our first full length record which will be out in Spring of 2017.

>> 2.You have a new album coming out in April, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

The new album is a compilation of our three demos. We sold out of our demos very early on and have always wanted to release them on vinyl but we were waiting for the right time to put them out. Scotty from Tankcrimes offered to release it for us and we were really happy to work with him!

>> 3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjectsthe band explores with the newer music?

The lyrics are mostly inspired by the mortal nature of our human life and the way everything comes to an end. Also by modern society and the way it traps people into an illusion of happiness when the reality is that we live in a world of injustice where nobody is really free.

>> 4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Necrot'?

The name Necrot means rotting and dying as an unavoidable practice of all living things. Every day you're a little more rotten and a step closer to your expiration date.

>> 5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Seattle with crurifragium and deiphago
Oakland and Mexico City with toxic holocaust
San Francisco with venom inc

>> 6.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?

We are currently on tour with our friends skullshitter on the east coast of the United States. After that we will be recording our new album and playing select shows to raise money to pay for the recording.

>> 7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?

I would say we are doing good at this point. People continue to hear us and support us when we play live. We have a good following and people buy our records and t-shirts. We would like to go to Europe and Japan by the time the next album is released.

>> 8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

Luca is continuing with Vastum and the recently reformed Acephalix. Vastum just released a new record. Sonny plays with Saviours, who also just released a new record and have toured already a few times this year. Chad is working with Atrament, Rude, Caffa, and Mortuous. Atrament's debut record was released this year. He also recorded drums for the second Rude album and Caffa's second demo which will be out by the end of 2016. 

>> 9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We want to keep making great music and we don't intend to stop. We will always improve upon our past recordings but the quality of what we produce will always be our greatest effort.

>> 10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I'd have to say early death metal and punk like death, immolation, grave, bolt thrower, morbid angel, discharge is what our sound is most often musically compared to. Very straightforward songs with hidden technicality that you have to really pay attention to in order to catch it. Some bands we listen to now would be morbid angel, possessed, autopsy, extreme noise terror, Motörhead, slayer.

>> 11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Between working, playing music and going on tour, we don't have much time to do much since we are very busy. We do find some time to go to other bands shows once in a while.

>> 12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thank you to Scotty at Tankcrimes, Mattia from Sentient Ruin, David from Extremely Rotten, Liz from Earsplit, and Skullshitter.
