Few questions - Interview with VOMIT DISEASE
Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc. ?
The band was founded in 2009 by Danilo (guitar) and Dominik (vocals) as Cult of Cunt, who started as a very simple Brutal Death Band. 2010 the Band changed name to Vomit Disease and over the course of 4 years, with numerous line up changes, the band wrote the debut and recorded it in the end of 2015.
Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?
We recored at the Deadlight Studio in Nuremberg (https://www.facebook.com/deadlightstudio), which is run by Lars Lüttge, with whom I played in Necropsy a few years ago.
He did the whole recording session, as well as mastering. Soundwise, we did wanted a good but still raw sound with real drums and he nailed it.
How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?
We released a first version of 50 CDs as well as a digital version which is available on bandcamp, amazon etc.
Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with ?
Lyrics were written by Dominik and me (Andreas). Mostly we deal with Tyranny, Hierarchy, Blasphemy, Revolution. Some ware influenced by historical events other by works of fiction.
Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?
The Logo was created by Pale Blue Slumber Logos (https://www.facebook.com/Pale-Blue-Slumber-Logos-300099180008192/?fref=ts) who also did the album artwork.
We do not have a website outside of our Bandcamp and Facebook page. These are obviously improtant to get noted, promote gigs and sell our music. But we try to not annoy people with nonsense posts etc. If we have something to say, we inform people – other than that we focus on creating music.
Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you?
Right now we do not have a label and finance everything D.I.Y. style. Maybe we’ll find a partner for the future.
Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?
In the beginning bands like Nile, Devourment etc were inspirations to the sound but over the years a lot of different (metal) music styles influenced us. Most of our songs are jam sessions.
Laurel Crown was created by Danilo playing a classical accoutic song wrong and us jamming over it. Other ones have been written at home by one person and finalized in the rehearsal room.
Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?
We have not yet but we will once we print another bunch of CDs. As said, a little help would be nice as well as give us a little more exposure and more possibilities to play live.
How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best?
I think we have 20+ gigs so far and our last gig in our home town in Nuremberg was pretty tight. Although Leipzig has always been good to us, too.
I personally like little,sticky clubs with the audience right on front of you. A lot more personal but we have managed bigger stages as well.
What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?
We want to write good music, play live and have fun with it. Making a living off of Death Metal is pretty hard or impossible so we’ll see what we can achive. Maybe witht he help of a label we can reach more people but the key is always making music we like to make.
How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?
You can reach us through Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/VomitDisease) or through our Bandcamp site (https://vomitdisease.bandcamp.com/).
