A few questions - interview with death metal band from New Zealand - SCORN OF CREATION.

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

Scorn Of Creation are a Death Metal band from New Zealand, we formed in 2018 after playing in a variety of different bands across the years. Me (Seth Jackson) and Bassist George Prowse wanted to start a new project to play the kind of metal we'd been wanting to play for a long time, so instead of joining an already established band, we decided to start something new and fresh.

Our style is a combination of old-school elements with a new/modern twist, we have influence from bands like Morbid Angel, Cryptopsy but also a lot of new bands as well.

I feel like we've found our own sound and it's something a little bit different, drawing inspiration from places even outside of the metal genre.


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

The new album 'Annihilation Cult' was recorded across Australia and New Zealand remotely, the songs were composed by Seth and George and we all recorded our own parts in our own recording spaces.
The album was then mixed and mastered by me at my home studio in New Zealand. I took care of mixing, mastering and production.
I think this album sounds miles ahead of the first album we produced, much more bottom end, much bigger and it captures the bands live sound in a more fluid way.

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

Annihilation Cult was originally released only as a digital release, but we have now pressed a limited 100 copies of the album on a bound book style CD package.

We have plans in the future to release the album (and potentially our first album) on vinyl also.


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

Our singer Kris Gillan wrote the lyrics and lyrical concept, the album is a continuation of the story from the first album.

Annihilation Cult is essentially a concept album, it follows a deranged cult leader who's determined to reach heaven to fight the gods, unknown to his followers, he convinces them that this is a noble cause, a safe cult for any who join. The cult gradually descends into madness and eventually death.


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 originally designed by Mortuus Art, but tweaked and redesigned by me, I handled the designing of the website and socials.

I think social media, in 2021 is a great tool for independent bands to get their music heard. It has been very helpful for us to share our work and spread it far beyond our home country, especially without a record label.

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 had a label for our first album (Universal/Deadboy Record) but we decided to do this album independently, simply so that we could have more control of what we were doing and release the album in our own time and to our own specifications.

We're happy with how the release for Annihilation Cult is going so far, but we're not ruling out the potential for another label in the future.


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

I get my inspiration from so many places, soundtracks from video games, movies, the world around me and a plethora of genres.

These days I'm just looking for something unique and which stands out, it doesn't matter who or what it is.

Myself, I don't idolise any one band anymore. But growing up my influences were Dying Fetus, Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Carcass, Exhumed, The Faceless and plenty more.

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

We haven't sent our new album out to any labels as of yet, we're getting through the initial release and then we'll see how we go with looking for potential distro/label deals.
We may continue as independent, all depending how things move forward.

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?

So far, in 2021 we have 2 shows planned. May 15th in Wellington, New Zealand and another down the line for an official release party for the album.

Unfortunately, due to Covid our plans for shows outside of New Zealand have been stopped in their tracks. We're hoping the opportunity for more shows will come once things calm down, on a global level.


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

We're currently talking about a third album, something to follow this release up. The plans for the future for us will be getting back out on the gigging circuit and outside of New Zealand once the pandemic dies down.

We want our music to be heard around the world!
