A few questions - interview with death metal band from Germany - DEATH CHAMBER.

Answered vocalist Pat Suchostawski, thank you!

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

‘Death Chamber’ is a straightforward Death Metal band from Munich, Germany. Besides the force, evoked by driving riffs and double bass/blast beat massacre, our music draws much of it’s power from Pat’s large vocal range. Guitarist Tim started the project in 2018. After having written and recorded three demo songs, each with a different local metal vocalist, he ended up with Pat from ‘The Course is Black’. Thereupon Pat started to write lyrics for our debut ‘Experiments in Warfare’, which deals with problems of our society, wrapped up in a war theme. In search of other collaborators Tim encountered Immanuel from the likewise Munich based Extreme Metal band ‘Chokehold Policy’. The mutual appreciation for their projects led to Immanuel joining ‘Death Chamber’ on bass.


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

The instrumental part was mainly recorded at Tim’s home studio. He also programmed the drums and forwarded the demos to Patrick. The vocals for the demos were recorded at Pat’s home. After reviewing the records, they were sent to Michael from ‘Sick of Sound’ studios for mixing and mastering. Michael is specialized in Death Metal production and we found the perfect ‘Death Chamber’ sound thanks to him. Pat also recorded the vocals for the debut there.

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

We wanted to try out something different, so we decided to release this debut on vinyl and digitally. The vinyl is limited to 100 copies in bloodred and includes a bonus track that will be only available on the physical copy. The digital version will be released on 23rd of April via ‘Dead Center Productions’.


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

Tim mentioned from the very beginning, that this release will be definitely war themed. So they agreed on that the lyrics will definitely play a big role and will also be war themed. So Pat decided to put the feeling, which he has gotten from listening to the instrumental versions of the song into a lyrical context. They especially cover problems and situations everyone may feel or be part in at any time, packed in a war theme. Also economic situation and overwhelming emotions, that may come with big confrontations, are also part the lyrical concept. They were written mostly in the middle of the night, so that there was nothing that could have disturbed him during the writing process. Pat has written all of the lyrics by himself.

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 created by the very talented Swedish artist William Fotenau, a friend of Tim. Pat transferred the lyrical world into the chaotic war scene, displayed on the front cover. Immanuel was responsible for design and photographic realization of the back cover.

Social networks or social media are extremely important for each artist in these times. Without there is barely a chance that you will get a broad audience for the art you created. This won’t change in the near future. Right now we don’t have a website, but we try to put our effort into Bandcamp and our social media channels. This is really not an easy topic.


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?

This is something special for us, because in this case ‘Dead Center Productions’ contacted us after we released our first single. Due to Pat’s thorough research, we came to the decision, that ‘Dead Center Productions’ and ‘Death Chamber’ would be a perfect fit. As a logical consequence we signed in March 2021. So far, we are pleased to see, how eager our label is to support and promote our progression. We are stoked to see how things will be after the release of our debut.

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

Immanuel entered the path of heavy music with ‘Guns N Roses’ and ‘Metallica’. Although having broaden his musical spectrum with bands like ‘Soilent Green’, ‘Himsa’, ‘1349’ and ‘Meshuggah’, the echos of the old heroes are still strong. Pat started his musical path with bands like ‘Disturbed’, ‘Korn’ and ‘Children of Bodom’ after some time he drew a lot of influence from a variety of bands like ‘Scar Symmetry’, ‘The Black Dahlia Murder’ and ‘Whitechapel’. Right now he can’t even tell how much different bands are inspiring him in each kind of way. Tim also entered the path of heavier music with ‘Metallica’. Now he takes all his inspiration from bands like ‘Vomitory’, ‘Fear Factory’, ‘Dying Fetus’ and ‘Cut Up’.

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

We slowly started to plan, which labels we could have sent our record to, but right before we started, ‘Dead Center Productions’ already contacted us.

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?

Death Chamber is still in a early stage of being a band. We just started, so we cannot look back at any live appearances yet. We really would like to, but there is a pandemic going on, which makes it impossible to play in front of an audience right now. We will play gigs or festivals in the future, but we will see where this will be going.


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

Actually, we can’t wait to perform our stuff live. So we strongly hope, that the whole corona thing might come to an end anytime soon and people can experience our music live. Until then we put much effort in connecting with people via our social media channels. One highlight to be mentioned is our first visualizer video, which premieres on March 31st via Death Metal Promotion on YouTube. So be sure to mark the date with an inverted cross in your calendar!
