1. 1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?We’re a Kansas city technical death metal band that has been ripping up various stages since 2005. Though a “technical” death metal band, we implement various facets of metal across the spectrum in attempt to create something of our own that expresses the totality of our musical interests.
2. How would you describe your musical sound?
2. The blistering, raw, furious sound of a multi-faceted conglomeration of primarily the most extreme styles found in underground music, utilizing the aspects of the classics while in the context of modern death metal and the gradual refinement of its technique.
3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
3. Though primarily a violence/gore oriented subject matter, The Dissection of Christ delves into the more deterring sentiments regarding religion, and in this case namely Christianity.
4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
4. Initially, the concept of being “drawn and quartered” had inspired the idea of being dubbed, “Torn Apart”. However, it had since been discovered at one point that this band name had already been applied to various groups, and to express the obscenity of the very nature we embody while solving this dilemma, added “the Fuck” to the middle.
5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
5. Though there are certainly some memorable shows with some of the giants that paved the way for us, we can honestly say that virtually every show is as amazing as the last. To elaborate on the vibe of our performance, it’s a straight forward, balls to the wall, teeth grinding scene of brutality overload.
6. Do you have any touring plans for the future?
6. Nothing in the works at the moment, but we do aim to keep a consistency of playing about both our area, and the surrounding areas that take an interest in what we do.
7. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label and if so what kind of label do you feel that would be a perfect fit for your music?
7. Of course, a label is impertinent at some point in a bands career to aid the extensiveness of our music to new fans, along with the ability to produce new and more professional material. However, it’s most certainly not detrimental to our drive to pursue the next song, show, or what have you. Labels that take an interest in the top numbers, charts, and the complete stifling of creativity and deprivation of creative license are absolutely out of the question and of no interest to us.
8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of brutal death metal?
8. Extreme Variance. Some people love it, others abhor it. Some just think it’s ok.
9. Are there any other musical projects besides this band or is this a full time line up?
9. Though a full time line-up, there is currently a side project under works by Nick on guitar, playing for Klehma.
10. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
10. Pushing the envelope we’ve been establishing over the years harder than the last. More technical, heavier, and more integration, an attempt to best ourselves at every whim.
11. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
11. Some inspirations include Dying Fetus, Rings of Saturn, Cattle Decapitation, Nile, Gorgasm, Cerebral Bore, Deicide, Burning the Masses, Cannibal Corpse, Phobia, and Carnifex.
12. I know the band is anti christian but do you have any interest in Satanism and Occultism?
12. Though the vast majority of the band is objectively atheist, without the pursuance of any type of non-corporeal manifestation or facets of esoteric pursuit, Nick has dabbled in various categories of occult significance, namely that of shamanic Chaoism, Discordianism, and a form of post-modern occultism that ties into the Domus Kaotika, Marauder Underground, and the A.A.O. However, this is very strictly not to be confused with religion, paganism, or any likeness to the objective projection of non-corporeal personification of various manifestations of the subjective experience.
13. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
13. Physical fitness, borderline alcoholism, prospecting for NYDM, smoking entirely too much reefer, heresy through the devouring of hot-dogs on Fridays, fucking bitches, and summoning Baphomet for tea.
14.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
14.We are currently writing the music of our next album, to likely be titled “Sexually Transmitted Torture”. It is our intent to have this album recorded by the middle of 2013, and is certain to express absolute evisceration, gore, and wretched horror implemented into a new level of technical brutality.
