Interview  with  Necrosis  done  by  Patrick

1.Hello  please introduce yourselves  to  the  readers?

 We are Bob, Max and Johan.

2.When  did you  first  meet the other  members  of the  band  and  was it  long  before you  all  started  Necrosis? How  did you  all  choose  Necrosis  as the  bands name?

That’s a very long story, since we’ve known each other since approx. 1998.
To make the story short; Bob and Max are brothers, so that’s pretty much self-explanatory. Max then met Johan, and formed Alter Ego together with Bob on drums Johan was on guitar and vocal, Max was on guitar and vocal and a mutual friend, Dennis, was on bass. We played together for about 3 years, and we eventually split up. Bob and Max, however, kept writing music and were doing some experiments on new sounds and techniques. They did that for about 2 years, and we practically shelved it. After 2 years Bob and Max couldn’t leave the music behind, and formed Necrosis in 2007. We were Bob on vocals, Max on guitar, and a good friend, Calvin on bass. When Calvin left the band, Bob met Johan again, asking whether we were still active, and Bob said yes.
We teamed up in 2011, and the rest is pretty much history.

3.What  is  the  bands  current  line-up of Necrosis?And  who  would  you  say  are the  bands  biggest  influences? 

Current line-up is Bob on lyrics, vocals and programming, Max on guitar and Johan on bass. We’re individually very influential. Bob doesn’t play an instrument but he has deep understanding of our musical direction, and for a long time Max was the one coming up with the riffs, but since Johan joined he’s beginning to do that as well.

4.Mythogenesis  is  the  bands  debut  release  how  long  did  it  take the band to  write  to  write the music for  the debut?Does the  whole band  work on the  music or does  one member  usually  write  everything?

It took about 2 years to write the material for Mythogenesis. There were some obstacles on way that prolonged the eventual release. As mention before; we all contribute to making the music.
We have a very uncompromising approach to our music.

5.Who  usually  takes  care  of  writing the  lyrics  for the  music  and  what  are  some topics you  all  wrote  about  on  Mythogenesis?

Bob is the main author. Topics involves inner universe, anti-religious subjects and sociological discussions.

6.I  believe  Mythogenesis  is  a  digital  release  are  their  plans to  release  it  on  a  physical  format  soon?Where  can  the readers  buy  the  debut release?Besides  the debut  is  their  any  other merchandise  available  for the  fans to  buy?If  yes  what is  available  and  where  can the readers  buy  it?

At the moment there's only a digital release, which can be purchased at our bandcamp: We're working on a stream solution, so keep an eye on our facebook page for more information on that. Physical releases is interesting if the demand is for it. Should there eventually be a physical release, you can expect to purchase it on our bandcamp. We're working on a merchandise solution. Instead of having a stock of the t-shirt and the like, we want to collaborate with a t-shirt producer that offers t-shirts ad hoc. Should this eventually also be available, then it’ll purchasable through our bandcamp. So keep an eye out for our facebook page for info.

7.Has  Necrosis   played  live  yet?If yes  what  have  been  some of your  most  memorable  shows  so  far?

We've played live numerous of times. Every band member has their own particular memorable show. We do have a collective memorable experience though. In 2014 we were participating Wacken Metal Battle, where we got to play two big gigs with other contestants. The first one had Crowbar as the main gig, and the other had Hatesphere.

8.Are  their  any tours  or  shows  coming  up  in  support  of  Mythogenesis ?If  yes  where  will  the  band  be  playing?

We’re not planning any tours yet, but we are having a relaease party at High Voltage in Copenhagen, with Mental Coma and Septic Congestion as support. We're working on a more flesh out concert dates for our release.

9.When  not  working on  new music  or  band  business  what  do  you  like to do  in your  free time?

Every band members are a father, so we do a lot of family time, but we do like to play on PCs and consoles. Max is boardgame enthusiast, so a lot of time goes into that as well.

10Besides  playing  in   Necrosis  do  any  of the  members  currently  play  in  any  other  bands?If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  a  little  about  them?

None of us is playing in any other band.

11. Necrosis  comes  out  of  Denmark's  old-school  death  metal  scene  what  is  your  opinion  of  the  metal  scene  in  Denmark?

We have a thriving underground metal scene. The metal media seems to ignore the vast talent pool that are presented in the lesser known scenes. The danish metal scene have issues with embracing new concepts. Especially if they don’t conform to the traditional archetypes.

12.Who  are your  all-time  favorite  bands coming  out  of  Denmark? And  are their  any  new  bands  coming  out  of  Denmark  you  feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

First of all: Necrosis. We have some oldies like Iniquity, Konkhra, Invocator and Dominus. Some new ones that are worth mentioning are Mental Coma, Septic Congestion, Guttural Slug, Six String Slaughter and Impalers.

13.Besides  death  metal  do  you  listen to  any  other  forms  of  underground  music?If  yes  what  are some of your  favorite  genres  and  bands,musicians?

One of us listens to Perturbator and Lazer Hawk, and funeral doom like Disembowelment, Evoken and Tyranny. The other one listens to a great deal of black metal, like Mgla, Infernos, Cult of Fire and Zhrine.

14.Besides  music  we  are  huge  movie fans  here  at  Ancient Visionz  do  you  all watch  a lot  of  movies?What  are  some  of your  all-time favorite   movies?

Yes we do, and a lot. Johan consider Lawless as one of his all time favourites. Bob has an undivided love for a lot of movies, and was unable to mention one. His favourite genre are horror, sci-fi and sci-fi/horror. Max all favourite is Conan the Barbarian (John Milius).

15.Are  their  any  actresses  and  actors  you  enjoy   watching?

Max enjoys to watch Ryan Gosling, particularly in Nicolas Winding Refn movies. Johan has a thing for Tom Hardy at the moment. Jake Gyllenhaal is high on Bobs list, but he also favours Kit Harrington.

16.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time to  fill this  interview  out  do  you  have  any  final  comments for the  readers?

We want to point out that we have an amazing underground for metal, that are in dire  need of attention. There is a massive talent that aren’t getting the well-deserved credit. If  you’re a fan of metal; explore the local scene and support the bands by showing up to the  concerts, and recognise them on their social medias.
