Discreation Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since recording of the new album?
After the recordings we played two shows in Germany, subsequently we started with the work on the artwork for the album. The Italian artist Roberto Toderico did an awesome job by drawing the cover and the photographer Peter Kunz captured some great pictures of us. Right now we are preparing our upcoming tour with the mighty Master which starts on the 28th of September in Hamburg.

2.You have a new album coming out during the end of September, 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?
One of the biggest differences to our last album “Procreation of the wretched” is the singing because Kai the former vocalist left the band last year and I joined the band. Aside from that our songwriting has become more focused which resulted in songs that are straighter and more in your face.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
All lyrics address the dark sides of mankind and how they will bring us to our end of days. The only exception is ‘The Pentagramm’ which is in fact a peom by Aleister Crowley and an homage to mankind. We picked it not only because it’s a really great poem but also because it shows that humanity has so much potential to create sublime things and overcome giant problems which makes our inevitable downfall even more tragic..

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Discreation'?
Discreation means destruction, annihilation. Back in the days when the guys were looking for a band name that fitted their vision, they came across that word and immediately knew that it would be their bands name.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Last year we played on the Rock Hard Festival in Germany which was a really great experience for us because of the awesome amphitheater and the big crowd in front of the stage. But aside from that we had many great experiences over the years. It’s always a good show when there’s a connection between band and audience and this special energy fills the room. If we may believe in the feedback we get after our shows our live performance is very tight and bursting of energy.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?
Yes. As mentioned before we will go on tour with Master from the 28th of September till the 7th of October. We will play 10 shows around Germany, Switzerland and Netherlands.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
What we know from reviews the last album has been received pretty good everywhere. But we haven’t been invited to play somewhere abroad. So you can’t really say how much people really got aware of us.

8.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?
Our guitarist Dave plays in a Thrash/Power Metal band named ‘Odium’ which released a new album in July this year and I also do the grunts in the Death/Black Metal band ‘Horresque’.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Discreation belongs to Death Metal and will always celebrate that by fusing the best elements of the American and European forms of Death Metal.

10.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?
While I am more into Black Metal nowadays, our guitarists are still very much into Death Metal. Overall I`d say that we all have a pretty wide spread musical taste. But our common denominator is Death Metal of course.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Some like gaming, some are more into sports like bouldering or mountain biking.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the interview. We are very proud of our upcoming album and hope that the Death Metal maniacs out there will know to appreciate it! So long, stay alive but love Death!
