Mutilatred Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1.  Patric: We are a four piece but sometimes a two piece (and sometimes a three piece, haha). We (Clay Lowe & I) started our band as a two piece after our other bands didn't work out. We were playing together for about 10 years at that point and wanted to keep playing metal. We eventually found two other incredible musicians/friends and have been writing as Multilatred since 2014. We are old school death metal with a decent slam influence. Simple loud and with a beat.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
2. Patrick: Our sound is raw and stripped down. We record at our friends studio "Lake Bottom Recording" and use the same set up we use live. Everything is tracked live without much editing. We try to make it sound as close to our live set as possible.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects that the band explores with the music?
3. Patrick: Our lyrical topic is wrapped around one main subject: "hard drugs" specifically, prescribed opiates and Heroin. We've seen it ruin the life's of people we know and it's an major crisis in our society, which affects everyone directly or indirectly. The opiate epidemic could be dealt with differently. It is frustrating to see substance abuse being used for profit in a lot of ways. I could sit here and write a book of rambled feelings  to convey how fucked up it all is. But for now our version of voicing our concern is through the music we make.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Mutilatred'?
4. Patrick: Perfect question to continue the last topic. The origin of Mutilatred came from the two words that immediately came to mind when thinking of the heroin crisis: mutilation and hatred.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
5. Patrick: Our best shows are almost always house shows. (Although we've played many amazing shows at bars and venues. Playing with 1349 and Origin was insane to us). Our favorite show of all time was a recent house show in Cincinnati with Sewage Grinder. The people were extremely into metal and in general they were very hospitable.

When we play live it feels like we gain a little more intensity after each show. We like to head bang as much as possible. And our other guitarist, Pat Meyers, is constantly on the verge of annihilating everything around him, which is one of my favorite things about our shows. You can tell he's 100% into it and part of the music he plays.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
6. Patrick: We are doing our first weekend run at the beginning of September with two Columbus bands: Domestic Terror and Heartworm. Other than that we have some shows here and there for the next couple months.

7.You have a split coming out with 'From The Hellmouth', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?
7. Clay: We are very happy to be doing this split with From the Hellmouth. Such a great band in every aspect. Dark/evil tremolo picking, phenomenal drumming, loud pissed off vocals. I think they were the perfect match for us to do a split with.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of brutal death metal?
8. Clay: Everyone we've come in contact with has had a really good response to our music. On a worldwide scale, we could always be doing better. We're always trying to get our stuff out there for more death metal fans.

9.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?
9. Clay: Eli (our bass player) has a few projects he's involved in: Hung From the Rising Sun and WAX. Myself  and Patrick are in a dormant band with our friend Will called Serpent Speech. We hope to do something with that band again sometime down the line.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
10. Patrick: We are heading directly into more death metal with no end in sight.

11.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?
11. Our guitar player (Pat Meyers) former band Premonitions of War. Mutilated, GutRot, and Shitlife. Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Devourment, and 1349 are all sources of inspiration for us. Nowadays we've been listening to a lot of Defeated Sanity, Cephlatripsy, and Delusional parasitosis to name a few.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?
12. Patrick :  tattooing, drawing, painting, cartoon making.
      Clay : welding, metalworking, hockey

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
13.  Nope, that's it
