1-Greetings and welcome to No Mercy Zine! As a start, please present Diminished to our readers ?
-Well Diminished started in 2005 in the fall with my singer and I where in a art class. We became friends and had a common interested in metal. I heard of 6 feet under and Cannibal Corspe but then he should a lot of death metal bands. Shorty after we decided to make a death metal band. From there is just snowballed into playing shows and earning stripes and then eventually getting signed to Sevared Records. Of course every BDM band has problems ours was our members flaking and no one being in death metal in 2005-2007 in our area, about 2008 we started getting heavier and winter 2009 we were signed by Sevared, he hit us up on myspace because BBB of Ossuary Industries reference us to him i believe. Now we are just building our name and working on making albums and playing shows and getting out there we currently have two full length albums which both came out in 2010. Our goal is to be one of the best death metal bands of all time like corspe, fetus, suffo, ect ect we want people tp say yeah i wanna sound like Diminished and inspire them to add something new to our genre.
way it's been done ?
16 -Where do you get inspiration from for the lyrics? , how do you write your music? Is there a set guideline or do you write what you feel as you go along ?
17-Chainsaw Cunt ? I mean, it fucking kills... since 2005! I would imagine there were label troubles or band in-fighting, there had to be some sort of hurdle to overcome? Did you forget to set the alarm clock? What's the deal, man ?
18-Please explain the title and cover image of your Full-length Chainsaw Cunt ?
19-Which label would fit your music ?
20-Do you have any future split with any band ?
21-The most impressive thing about your band is that you were on stage with fucking great bands like Vital remains Insidious Decrepancy , Dying Fetus ,Devourment …. what were the emotions afterwards? you have been successful with all this monsters of brutal ?
playing with bands of that calibers is nerve wracking but sometime there is your moment of opportunity to get know in that show. So its a cool feeling that your sharing the stage with your idols but at the same time you have to go to work and earn your rep of being a good band. Shawn of Insidious is cool, we never talk to fetus or much of devourment they kept to themselves. Vital Remains the singer was very cool didn't talk to the guitars he kept to himself too. It neat but them you have to worry about the next show and ect.
