A few questions - interview with brutal death metal band from USA - ARCHITECTURAL GENOCIDE.

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

Hello, Jonathan from Architectural Genocide here! We put the project together roughly two years ago. We are a four piece brutal death metal band based out of Houston, Texas. Our Natty Ray Ray keeps the blasts tight, our Danny Boy provides the guttural sickness, and Matt attacks the bass. I bring riff madness and all the sexy guitars. Is it weird that I’m attracted to guitars?

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

All tracking was done with our good friends at Southwing Audio here in Houston. They are some cool, collected, and compentent dudes. Mixing and mastering duties were taken on by a blast beat legend, Davide Billia. He was very insightful and quickly able to identify adjustments needed to best suit the album. We didnt neccesarily have a dealine to meet, but we knew what we wanted and got grinding on it quickly. 


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

Comatose Music had 1,000 copies of the album printed, and we’ve already prepped for the digital release as well. Check us out on Spotify, iTunes, BandCamp, and Amazon Music when the album drops on March 13th! 

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

Dan is the mastermind behind the concept. He’s a huge fan of horror/sci-fi, and he used a lot of those ideas to influence the concept. The album revolves around a lab grown monstrosity created through corrupt experimentation on a human. This experiment gone wrong creates the Cordyceptic Anthropomorph. This beast takes the form of an enormous parasite that drains the earth of its resources while rapidly populating it. Their endgame is to destroy all life! Nat helped out by writing lyrics for a couple of the songs, but he kept it true to Dan’s vision. The thought of total annihilation ignites our soul. Now that everyone is dead, what are we going to write about now?


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? 

Vad at Ungodly Graphics created the logo. We love it! All we had to do was tell him the name, and he worked his magic. Vad’s a great dude to work with. Go check out his band Cranial Osteotomy! We understand that the internet runs the world now, so we also take our social media presence seriously. We’re always planning our next move for announcements carefully to maximize the potential of each post. Whatever is needed, we try to do ourselves. We have a concise vision when it comes to the representation of our band, and we set our standards high. 

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 been talking to a few labels initally, since we are always trying to stay with what‘s hip in the scene, but the decision to roll with Comatose Music was one we knew was right for us. Steve is easy to work with, and he shares the desire to stay ahead of the game. We are thrilled to be working with his label. Lots of quality bands have been a part of the Comatose roster. It was a no-brainer. Plus the online distro is insane! Go buy some shit and tell him we sent you!



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

There are so many bands that meet this criteria for me. The death metal community is packed with insane talent that has no boundaries. Everyone in the band has their own style and draws their inspiration from different sources, so we try to mix it all together to form our own sound. We take influence from bands like Disentomb, Gorgasm, Cerebral Effusion, Inherit Disease, Soreption, and Decapitated. Everyone in the band loves Deeds of Flesh, and we dig hard on all of the crazy Italian bands. Their riffs are so spicy. Mama Mia! 

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

Once we got further into the process of making this album, we sent tracks to a couple of labels we were interested in. The rough tracks were well received, but, as you know, we ultimately went with Comatose. As far as who we sent them to, that will remain a mystery. We can‘t tell all our secrets now, can we?


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? 

In the beginning, we kept our shows to a minimum, since we wanted the album to be released before playing a lot of shows. The album release was what we were after from the start. We prefer the more aggressive rosters for sure. Most of our shows have been out of town, and we will continue that for the future. We’re hoping to make our way into the fest circuit now that the album is released. We have a few announcements that we cannot yet leak, but one fest that you can find us at this year is the Chicago Domination Fest in July! Don‘t miss out on one of the sickest death metal events of the year. Lineup is stacked! We prefer more intimate environments with family and friends for showcases, but we also thoroughly enjoy the large events as well. 

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

We plan to travel as much as we can to extend our musical reach across the globe, as well as continue putting out the music we love and enjoy. More creating and more brutality. That’s for damn sure! Maybe we’ll go to Bed Bath and Beyond after, if there’s time.
