Iniquitous Savagery Interview

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

We've just been rehearsing, keeping the songs tight, playing shows and planning stuff out for the future once we get the album out.

2.In October(September) you have a new album coming out, 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?

We're not the fastest, most technical or slamming band we just try and write Brutal Death Metal that is catchy and fun to play. The difference from our older stuff to the new album is that we're a more solid band now than we were back then and we've put more thought into the song writing than on our older material.

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

All the songs's lyrics explore different ways the human mind can be corrupted, manipulated and moulded for evil intentions. Josh wrote all the lyrics with a bit of input from Euan and I just gave a couple of ideas for words that sound cool to use so I can't really go into too much detail about them.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Iniquitous Savagery'?

Josh was messing around with song titles trying to come up with the most ridiculous, long names he could and I took those words from a song title he came up with and it stuck. That's pretty much it.

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

My favourite shows we've played are probably Houten Deathfest in the Netherlands and all of the shows we played on our USA tour in 2013! We try to play as tight as we can live but at the same time have a lot of energy, playing live is definitely the thing we enjoy most from being in the band.

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

We want to tour, play shows and festivals as much as we can after the album is released. We're doing a mini UK tour at the end of October with Omnipotent Hysteria and Black Skies Burn and we have another tour in the works right now that will hopefully all come together soon.

7.The new album is coming out on Grindethic Records, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

Grindethic is a legendary Brutal Death Metal label based in the UK. We got in touch with Tom about mixing our tracks when we first recorded and he offered to release it for us, we were on the label before we even had any music out or played live, it was amazing for us because Grindethic got us into this kind of music in the first place! Tom also made the artwork for our debut release and mixed our promo track we put out in 2013. The artwork and the concept behind it for Subversions of the Psyche was all his idea and he recorded vocals for one of the tracks as well.

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

The feedback for the first preview track we put up from the new album has been Awesome! People who already followed the band are digging it, there's new people checking us out and we've had people from bands that are huge influences to us give us positive feedback as well which is insane for us!

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

We're always trying to write better songs and add in new ideas to make each track stand out and have something to it the others don't. We'll stick with the style we already play and just keep trying to progress it.

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?

There's so many that inspire us and everyone in the band has their own preferences so it's really hard to write a short list of bands because there's too many to think of, We're massively influenced by all the classic Brutal Death Metal bands(Guttural Secrete, Defeated Sanity, Cenotaph, Disgorge, Condemned and loads more) and We like to have some old school death metal influences come through in our songs as well. There's also some influences from outside of death metal and outside of metal in Euan's drumming. Right now I'm really hyped on the new albums from Iniquitous Deeds and Dysentery!

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Loads of stuff from skateboarding to juggling, Josh has recently started drawing a lot so hopefully he keeps that up and can eventually design stuff for us to use.

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

Thanks for the interview and thanks to anyone who reads it, Check out our album when you get the chance! Cheers!
