Embrional Interview

Interview with Embrional
Answered: Rychu – guitars

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?

R. The band was founded by Marcin (guitar, vocals) In 2003 in a different lineup and for two years existed under the name of Embrional Necrophilism. In 2005 the current lineup had shaped and the name was shortened to Embrional due to change of our vocalist and fields we discover. In 2006 we recorded 41 min. of music for the first demo “Cusp Of Evil”. The material was released later by Old Temple Records in 2008 as a digipack with changed cover art. In 2007 we produced a 21 min. demo entitled “Annihilation”. 2009 was a year of the officially released, again by Old Temple Rec, split CD with Empheris. At the end of March 2012 the brand new album “Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviours” came out under the flag of Old Temple and in cooperation with Godz Ov War Productions.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?

R. Mental insanity and death metal annihilation. Technically advanced, yet filled with morbid, dark atmosphere, cold and evil. Furious, full of hatred, grim and dehumanized. This is the definition of what we create and how we see thing we do, which does not mean everyone sees it this way.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

R. We are not some Wagners or kind of musical visionaries. We have an idea for what we do, our style is built on experience and skills, but it is a long term process and we are still working on it. We know what direction we want to be heading and consistently realize it. The results are going to be surprising for everyone.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?

R. The name, as we mentioned before, was partially castrated. Nobody even remembers its genesis, since the beginnings of the band’s existence mated with enormous amounts of alcohol fumes. We changed it to suit the character of our lyrics. We prefer more ambitious approach and penetrate various meanders of human psyche, therefore we decided to get rid of ‘necrophilism’ in our name. Embrional, as an adjective, gives us more room to maneuver our imagination.

5. I have read the band started out as Embrionial Necrophilism what was the decision behind altering the bands name?

R. We have already explained it before. The beginning of the band was an extreme rebellion of young people. Human evolves all the time and so does his mind.

6. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?

This is rather a question for people who watch the performances. Generally, apart from 3-4 exceptions, we are satisfied with our gigs, no matter the conditions. We play a lot and make the most of it on stage, which is reflected by the energy among the audience. We must admit that we are a 100% concert band. We work continuously on being a live killing and cutting machine. That is what fascinates and attracts us, people are starting to appreciate it.

7. Do you have any touring plans for the future?

R. What do you mean by tour? A week, two or a month? Unfortunately, because of our occupational and family duties, we are not able to set off for such escapades. We rather focus on regular weekend trips which we are invited to or organize them ourselves. However, if some gig breakthrough came true and an enticing proposal was made, I believe we would think of something to get there.

8. Currently you are signed to Old Temple Records, how did you get in contact with this label and how would you describe the support that they have given you so far?

R. Old Temple was the only label which showed any interest in our first record, and to be honest, it has been being the only one to this day. Great thanks to Eryk for all that. Nevertheless, character of the label, funds, size of the catalogue and purely hobby-like involvement of the owner do not allow for promotional or financial madness. It’s a pity, because he has several remarkable albums. Generally, we work on everything with help of numerous people engaged actively in the Underground.

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been toy your music by fans of brutal death metal?

R. We must separate two stages of Embrional’s activity and feedback we got. Namely, most of promotional work to the release date of “Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviors” was done by us and several people fighting and propagating  music in the Underground. It was effective, but lack of time was blocking many ideas and development of the band itself. We are musicians, not some marketing managers. Since the release of our new album, Greg from Godz Ov War Productions has been our “menago”, ignition and catalyzer. Everything moved on intensively. Reviews of our album popped out all over the world, sometimes even multiple reviews in one country, in various zines and webzines. Response is really positive, surprising for us. Many people appreciate our music, work, particulars that we focused on and varied views on the music itself which fits the scale of some genre. We are glad to hear that and with every release we will be even more incalculable.

10. What is going on with the other projects these days?

R. All projects which Embrional musicians are or have been involved in are only side activities with no impact on Embrional’s work. That is a mobile part of their lives and undergoes many changes, so no need to discuss it. People come and go.

11. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

R. We are heading towards development of what we did on „Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviors” to such an extent, that we are aware of music and our style is distinguishable and hard to copy. Different, diversified and intriguing, yet still extreme, furious, fast and heavy hahahaha.

12. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

R. There is no single style which shaped us. Undoubtedly, it is metal music, but the process has been continuing since the first contact with the music at the turn of ’80s and ‘90s  to this day, alongside numerous semi-genres which, being non-metal, are still extreme. Every sick thing in music and stuff attracts us and directly influences us. Many musical extremes, but one aim. Twist human psyche to the limits.

13. How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?

R. We are not religious people in any sense, we spit hate on everyone. If you are asking about Satanism as a direction of individual development of man, it is similar to Tao philosophy, that is, balance between human and the world. Generally speaking, it is acceptable to some extent. Unfortunately, Satanism is mostly associated only with denial of Christian religion and invertion of certain norms. It seems stupid to abnegate the existence of the good god and, at the same time, believe in the evil one. How can I accept inversion of primordiality since it comes from one core? Bullshit! We do not follow the course. We, humans,  are gods ourselves with the awareness of phenomena occurring in our closest and distant environment. If there is no white, black does not exist either. Occultism, in this case, is something like an artistic expression of darkness in human character, but when it crosses the religious norms it ceases to be acceptable.

14. Outside of music what are some of your interests?

R. Life, fucking life. Fascinating and chaotic.

15. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

R. Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses.
