Obsolete Incarnation Interview

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

Well, since the recording we played a couple of shows in Germany and Switzerland and we had to deal with all the administrational stuff that comes with a new release. At the moment we are preparing for a small release tour and are writing new songs. So no time to relax...haha

2.You have a new ep coming out towards the end of January, 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 think that the sound of the EP is much more elaborate than on our last album "New breed Of An Uncurable Disease". We have learned a lot during the last years in songwriting and you can hear that on the EP. Ramon, once again, did an awesome job in the mix- and mastering. Everything is clearly hearable, but still it's a brutal sound.

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

We didn't really change our topics with our new music. It's still about (in)sanity, gore and social topics.

4.Form 2010 to 2015 there was no new material, can you tell us a little bit more about what was going on during that time frame?

During that time we had some major lineup changes (Jens and Marius joined; Christian left the band), which led to a relaunch of Obsolete Incarnation in 2014. New band members, new logo, new songs. That took some time but it all worked out very well for us.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Obsolete Incarnation'?

There is no further meaning behind our band name. Our drummer came up with it and we thought: Hey it sounds cool, lets take it.

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

We got a lot of great shows during the years, but a highlight was definitely our appearing on the Death Feast Open Air 2015, Germanys biggest brutal death festival. When we are on stage we do what we love. Playing live is an incredible feeling and we want to give our energy to the crowd in front of the stage.

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

We have a mini tour with Cytotoxin and Human Vivisection for our release and some smaller festivals during the year and maybe something bigger...

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

Through social media you get a lot of response from all kind of people from all over the world. The responses we get are amazing and confirm that we are doing something right way.

9.Are any of the band members currently involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?

Currently they aren't. Martin an Jens sometimes do some session work for other bands but nothing fix.

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

We will continue writing brutal music. There won't be a big break to our older stuff, but we will improve our songs, that's for sure.

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

We are all big fans of death metal, especially the technical and brutal one. Bands like Aborted, Dying Fetus or Benighted always had a big influence on our songwriting.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Music takes a huge part in all of our lives, but on others we got quite different interests like Motocross, Fistball and stuff...

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