Few questions - interview with death metal band from Greece - ECTOPLASMA!


Few questions - interview with death metal band from Greece - Ectoplasma.

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.?

Hails from Greece !!! We are Ectoplasma and we play death metal in the vein of our death metal masters such as Gutted, Baphomet, Autopsy, Judecca, Demigod, Death, Morta Skuld and more... We try to remain in the style of simple and raw brutality and nothing more. We started the band in the grip of winter of 2013.

Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?

We recorded SKELETAL LIFEFORMS in Underground Studio at Nikaia City. Kyriakos Kontoven was in charge of the mixing and mastering with our participation of course. We recorded it quite rapidly without any obstacles and we are very satisfied that the result was genuine and archaic in the sound.


How many copies  were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?

It was released in 100 tapes by Metal throne Prods and in 500 cds through Repulsive Echo.

Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with?

For all the lyrics Giannis Grim is responsible and the lyrical themes are about death, spectral entities, horror movies, gore and ghastly incidents. For example, Human Taxidermy is about a maniac who embalms his victims alive, Skeletal Lifeforms is about the armies of the dead who return to life as spectral skeletal entities to kill every christian hypocrite, Slain Meat For The Beast is influenced by the movie Nightbreed and preety much it describes a sacrifice to Baphomet, Awakened In The Coffin is talking about the burial of a man who finally was alive and wakes up in the coffin and starts suffocating and his soul is travelling to the dead until he dies and the soul finally finds the way for the underworld.


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 made by Gilian Adam who plays in a band called Vigilance. The truth is that we don’t promote the band every day through social media and we don’t have a personal website because all those money to maintain a site we prefer to use it in new recordings. But however we have a bandcamp and when we have to announce smth we use facebook.

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?

We are extremely satisfied with Metal Throne Prods who supported us since the beggining and of course we are very proud that we worked with Repulsive Echo Recs because Kostas Vaxevanos did and keeps doing a great work and promotion, he is a professional and he is not fooling around.


Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?

As we said in the first question we love bands such as Gutted, Demigod, Baphomet, Morta Skuld, Morgoth, Autopsy, Necrophobic, Judecca etc and of course we are getting inspired from horror movies and real life incidents about psychopaths and killers and also situations that driving humans to do ghastly things.

Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?

No we didn’t send our album to find a label because we already had a deal with Repulsive Echo Recs and Metal Throne Prods. 

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?

Until know we managed to play live 3 times here in some Greek clubs with other bands and we were satisfied a lot with our performance in every gig.



What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?

Our plans for now is to crush humanity with more live shows. And the great thing is that we just signed with Memento Mori Recs from Spain and we are going to prepare a new full length album to get sick and rot with it !!! The only achievement is to be active and play music. Nothing more, nothing less...

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?
