A few questions - interview with death grind band from Japan - MORTIFY.

Answered vocalist Adam, thank you!

Recenze/review - MORTIFY - Grotesque Buzzsaw Defilement (2021):

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

Cheers for the interview. We are a 3 piece from Tokyo Japan. Tak is on guitar but it is easy to mistake his axe for a grinding buzzsawwwwwww. Ryo bashes the coffins into dust. And I am Adam - mucous dripper and toe clipper thief. We play death/grind with the help of HM-2, bags filled with rancid and soggy dog food and buzzsaws turned to maximum speed. Some have compared our sound to old school Swedish death metal meets Swedish grindcore ala Regurgitate.


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

Ryo handled and has handled everything of ours since the inception of the band. We do everything in house as far as recording and mixing and mastering, so we are all very grabby hands on with the sound and final product. Most of the recordings are done at our dungeons of doom (living room).

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

I believe Obliteration Records pressed 1000 CDs for the Japanese release. Headsplit in the US pressed 100 or 200 tapes as well. There are a few other versions being discussed at the moment too.

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

I handle all of the family friendly lyrical content for the band. Lyrics are usually influenced by things such as boogers that grow on butts, smegma filled apple pies, dogs that can bring back the dead, mucous burgers and pools filled with ooze. You know..the standard.


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?

Our ghoul friend Suzy based in Sweden made our logo and she really did a great job I think. Of course social media is important for any band to use at this point. It has indeed caused an overload of the senses, and it’s harder to weed out the awful from the disgusting. But many people rely on these mediums for information about shows and projects and releases so we must get in line with the other fecal booger zombies and do the same.

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 chose Obliteration Records naturally because Naru from Butcher ABC is a true ooze sucking, lava eating, zit popping maniac!!! He understands our vision and always takes care of his fellow fiends. Cheers to Butcher ABC! We have also been lucky to work with many many other killer labels who have believed in Mortify and the message of drinking sewage sausage juice at night.


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

We all have many inspirations but I think we can all agree on bands like Impetigo, Agathocles, Pungent Stench, Carnage, Dismember, Warsore, Regurgitate.

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

We have not sent any press packets or zit pies to any labels. Thankfully all of the labels have sent us correspondence via letter attached to maggot filled backpack attached to pigeon dog.

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 a lot of shows over the past 4 years being a band ranging from small club shows, studio shows and bigger festivals in Tokyo. We will play anywhere for any size crowd, as long as the maniacs are ready to DIE FOR THE SAWWWW!


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

Right now we have our new ep out entitled “Grotesque Buzzsaw Defilement” We will promote that for a while. And we are currently wrapping up everything for the upcoming split 7 inch with H.A.R.M. on 625. Hail Max Ward! As for the band, we really want to play in Europe once this virus has gone back to its cold dark tomb.

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

You can find us on FaceBook and Twitter and bandcamp. Just search “mortify 666 Tokyo grindcore Buzzsaw zombie brain sauce phlegm in rectum Sweden worship metal”.

Thanx for the interview.

Hey my friend, thanks for the interview and kind words. Thanks for all the sicko grind and death metal maniacs around the globe repping Mortify. We appreciate it and hope to see you in person. Hail hail hail and spill (the toxic gastric juices).
