-Hell-o! How do you do today? How many packs of beer did you destroy today?……….. are you ready for this interview with me on No Mercy Webzine ?
Hi! Not enough today, its only Wednesday after all.
-Do an introduction of Creeping Flesh?
We are a couple of guys from Gothenburg who started playing old school death metal in 2013, since then we've recorded and released 2 EP's. That's pretty much it.
-Do interviews mean anything to you? Do you have to have a special state of mind when answering one ?
No, since this is our first interview.
-Who's idea was it to name your band Creeping Flesh and why? Is it taken from the movie "Creeping Flesh"?
Sofus and William was drinking and came up with a bunch of names and they all sucked. So we took the name Creeping Flesh instead from the song by Facebreaker. We then also found out that it was a cult 70's horror movie so that's pretty cool.
-What become your strong metal scene give more details what becomes bands like Dismember, Insision,Morbid,Setherial,Dark Funeral Triumphator….?? Any awesome new bands we should watch out for ?
Entrails, Smothered, Sterbhaus, Razorrape and Puteraeon are semi-new swedish bands that we like.
-In what part of Sweden do you live? Is it attractive for tourists? What can you recommend ? Where are the good places to go out and drink beers ?
We live in Gothenburg, we can recommend the women and the rock-clubs, like Belsepub. If you want to drink beer you should visit “The Flying Barrel”, other than that it's just the usual bullshit-tourist-attractions.
-How do you get inspiration to create music?
Lot's of coffee and war movies.
- Tell us a few words about your latest E.P "Rising Terror”, and how do you describe it? Tell us something about the recording and are you satisfied with how this album turned out - and how was it received by fans & press?
It's a pretty dark, slow-paced album but with some explosive moments – as it should be in songs about war. I guess that as a whole we did'nt really think about how, why and what we wrote - we just wrote a few songs and we got pretty happy about them and entered the studio. We just tried to make a bunch of good songs and it seems like people liked it.
-Are you satisfied with the previous material "Unravelled by War" or there are certain things you would like to have changed?
It's okay, after all it was our first album so there's nothing to change really, but we have gotten better at writing music in the process so we look forward to releasing more material.
-What are you lyrics about ? Who writes them and where do you gain inspiration for them ?
They are about the horrors of war. Usually we are inspired by war movies and history in general. Martin writes most of our lyrics, but we all contribute where it's needed.
-Please explain the title and cover image of "Rising Terror"I find its looks so much to the cover image of "Unravelled by War" the concepts is the same why this
We just want it to look evil and fit with our lyrical themes. War, more war, and total war.
-Which label would fit your music?
We call it Old School Death Metal, since most of our inspiration is from bands such as Bolt Thrower, Hail of Bullets and Jungle Rot.
-Describe Creeping Flesh gigs ,in which fest or gigs we have been more successful and who’s the bands and how is the performences of the bands who was with you at show ?..... Who was the best band in your opinion?
We haven't played live yet but look forward to do it this fall. Probably at a death metal night at some local bar.
-Any fav bands to get on stage with ? ,any future gigs ?
-Do the members of the band play in other projects?
Our drummer plays in a hardcore band called Strykjärn.
-What are you doing in daily life? How do you earn your money ?
We all have day jobs.
-What are some of your non-musical influences?
Video games, movies, books and history.
-What is your daily consumption amount of alcohol,cigarettes...... ?
A lot during the weekend, less when we are at work.
-What Internet sites do you use?
-What kind of music do you play in your car? What car do you own?
We listen to death metal in a black Volvo accompanied by dual exhausts and 270 horsepowers.
-Would you like to ask me a question !!???
How did you find out about our band?
I'm always looking for new or unknown underground bands who have just started with a demo, EP album recorded in an Independent label and because,I am passionate about everything that does not limit horror gore unreligion torture sadism violence ............ , all who leads to the beyond ...........I found Creeping Flesh in facebook
