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

Hello, we are Liquid Flesh, a three piece death metal band from Grenoble, France. The band was founded in 2014, with the idea to play raw & simple death metal. We recorded a first album “Spontaneous Liquefaction” and did some shows, after which the band went on a break. The founding members Glaviar (Drums) & Gastric Luke (Guitars) exhumed the band in 2018 with a new bass player/singer Putrid Bruce. After months of rehearsal, where the idea of the band evolved a little bit, tending to be more obscure and complex while staying “right in your face”, the band recorded a new album “Chair Liquide”, which we are proud to present today.


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

This album was recorded in Grenoble in the old rehearsal room of the band in 2019. Gastric Luke was in charge of the recording, then mixed and mastered it in his home studio.

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

We released 500 copies of Chair Liquide in a digipak format with Metal is the Law Productions. A small release of tapes should be arriving soon but we are still searching for some labels to work with to do tapes, vinyl, exclusive merch… Don’t hesitate to contact us! 

The album is also available on all the streaming platforms such as Bandcamp (name-your-price), Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music...


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

Putrid Bruce is the author of the lyrics. They were created in a classic way. We usually jam around some riffs, then create a structure around it with some mumbling voices. At the end, he writes the lyrics and if needed, we refine the songs. 

But it’s not a rule and the creative process of the future songs would surely be different.


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?

As the production, Gastric luke was in charge of the graphic and imagery around the band. He is a graphic designer and a visual artist for a long time, so it was quite natural for him to manage it. 

Visuals are very important for us, as it adds an extra atmosphere & interpretation to our music. 

Social networks are also important today. For example because of the COVID, it is almost the only way for us to communicate around our music. We don’t have a problem with using it, as long as it stays a tool.


Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takes care about you?

We are currently working with Metal is the Law productions for our digipak releases. We are very satisfied by them. It’s a small label, like we are a starting band and it’s very interesting to learn and evolve together.

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

We don’t idolise bands, but of course as we play a 30 years old music style we took inspirations of many bands. We could name Death Strike, Celtic Frost, Autopsy, Incantation, Undergang, Carcass, Entombed...


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

We sent our record to many labels, but few answers, saying that they had already a full schedule or were not interested. It is while playing live in Bordeaux with promo tapes we made in 2019 that we met Bastien of Metal is the Law Productions, which contacted us a few weeks later to offer us a deal.

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?

We didn’t play a lot of gigs with Liquid Flesh, maybe a dozen. According to the actual context the type of gigs we prefer doesn’t really matter, we just want to play in front of people as quickly as possible.

Yet our best memory of performances was with Agressor & Sublime Cadaveric Decompositon. It was such an honor to play with these two legends of french extreme metal.


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

We really want to play live ! More seriously and because of the time we have now we are preparing some new songs, so maybe “Chair Liquide” could have a little brother faster than expected.

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

We are on facebook, instagram, twitter at @liquidfleshdeathmetal. You could also contact us via liquidflesh(at)outlook.fr

Thanx for the interview.

Thanks you too!
