A few questions - interview with death metal band from USA - GUTRICYDE.

Answered Bret Smith (Bass, Guitars, Vocals), thank you!

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

The band is going through a lineup change. Currently the bands linup consists of: Bret Smith (guitar, vocals, drum samples), Lance White (bass guitar and vocals) Ray “Gutty“ Mora (A.K.A – The Butcher) as our mascot. Very soon, Lance will be on guitar along side Bret and a new bassist will be introduced.


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

The new EP “Gutricude“ was recorded in a small bedroom studio in Texas. Mixing and Mastering were done by Pat Patino‘ of the band “Djinn Guhl“.

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

As I recall the first release will consist of 500 CD’s and cassettes. The EP will be released on CD, cassette and streaming digital platforms. Maybe we will see some vinyl in the future.


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

Bret and Lance are authors of the lyrics. The lyrics are typically written around a topic for the track, which is usually something to do with brutal vengance on pedphiles, human traffickers, child abductors, corrupt politicians ..etc...basically anyone that preys on other humans.

Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website?

Starting with some simple sketches, we rendered the services of “Ley Art“ for original logo. The website www.gutricydetx.com graphics are a combintation of artwork from Ley Art and Sdenzil Budon. The website was put together by Bret Smith.


What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?

Social networks are the best tool there is for promotion of any kind now days. We consider them to be very important as you can reach across the entire world within seconds.

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?

After a few inquiries from labels we decided to go with “Corpse Gristle Records“. The determining factor for me personally was the communication and the explanation of how the process would go. So far we are very happy with the engagement of the label and its owner.


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

Back in the 90’s during the Embalmed days, the bands that inspired us were; Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, Deicide. Those bands still influence us today, however the list has grown to include bands like: Fulci, Analepsy, Abominable Putridity, Torture Killer, Mortician..etc.

Inspiration for writing comes from different things and at diffrent times. It may come from a movie, another song, a news artical or we might just hear a brutal riff in our heads.

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

We actually did not send any tracks to labels. We released a couple of singles that were going on the EP, and by social networking we were contacted about the plans the band had for the release.


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 have played about 8 gigs. Personally I think we prefer small club venues. We havent played any really big festivals, 7 or 8 bands are the largest shows we have payed. One of the gigs that stands out was at Haltom Theater in Halton City Texas. The lineup was great and the theater has a projector that allowed us to play brutal horror movie clips on screen behind us as we played. There are soem videos floating around on You Tube.

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

The future is hard to predict, however we are writing new material and plan to continue as long as life permits.

Our goals are to have a good time, write brutal tunes for the people around the world that enjoy Death Metal and horror.

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





Thanx for the interview.
