A few questions - interview with death metal band from Denmark - PLAGUEMACE.

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

We are a 5 man death metal band from Denmark. The band was formed in the fall of 2019 in a dirty old basement. We play hard hitting death metal, with loads of grooves, dirty riffs and thrashy drums. The sound and feel is very much in the vein of scandinavian death metal bands sich as Entombed, Dismember etc. 

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

We recorded the EP in Aarhus in FinlandStudio. In charge of recording, Mixing and mastering was Andreas Linnemann. An amazing producer who managed to hit the sound we were looking for. 

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

So far the only medium is digital, but both CD's and vinyls are in production and should be ready by the end of the year. We release 150 Black vinyls and a yellow schwirl version strictly limited to 100 copies. In addition to this we release 500 CD's as soon as they arrive. 


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

The lyrics were entirely written by our lead singer (Andreas). He has a wicked mind when it comes to writing lyrics so we just let him do his thing. The majority of the lyrics on the EP are about the lies and crumbling facade of the church. He also writes about good ol' gore and has some foul and graphic imagery in his lyrics. 

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? 

We really wanted the logo to include a mace so we hit up our friend David Hernan, who is a tattoo artist, and he made the logo. In addition to that we have worked with Paolo Girardi, who does some insanely cool paintings and he did the cover art for the EP. We have also had Warhead Art design some sick things for us, for instance the plaguedoctor we used for our single 'Plagueface'. 

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 have no label. We have done everything ourselves, but we would love to be on a label in the near future. 


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

We undoubtly idiolise Suffocation, which in our opinion is the greatest band ever. 

We also love High On Fire and I guess they to some extent have inspired our music. Otherwise we are inspired by bands such as Grave, Entombed, Obituary, Carcass etc. 

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

Actually we didn't yet. As mentioned earlier we will soon be looking for a label. 

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? 

Due to fucking Corona virus we have only played a few gigs. We are trying our hardest to get gigs but people are very cautious about planning shows in these uncertain times. That being said, we do have something brewing with two other danish bands. 


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

We just wanna get out there and play a ton of shows, and we have some milestones we have set for the future wich are getting to play on a tour here in Denmark, play at Brutal Assault, Wacken and other big festivals and at som point to be able to make a living playing music.
