Interview   with  Mario   Guitars   for   Devangelic   done  by  Patrick

1.Hello Mario how is life in Italy these days? Please introduce yourself to the readers?

Hi to everyone and thanks for having us for the interview!! I'm Mario guitar player of Devangelic and Vulvectomy from Italy.

2.When did you and the other members of Devangelic first meet? What is the current line up? For the readers who have never heard your band how would you describe the music?

We actually knew each other already before to start the band, especially me and Paolo we’re playing and touring from long time. The first real meeting to talk about the project happened back in 2012 summer and there was Alex (drummer), David (former bass player) and me; then we spoke with Paolo (vocals) about it and he was immediately in! The current line-up is the same who started except for the bass player David, who left the band for personal reasons, replaced by Demian.
Our music is basically a brutal death metal mix between bands like Disgorge, Gorgasm and Condemned, with our own personal influences in it.

3.Devangelic is getting ready to release it's debut cd "Resurrection Denied" through Comatose Music. How did you all come in contact with the Comatose Music?

We came in contact with Steve from Comatose Music at the end of 2012, when we were sending our promo CD around. He came up with a very good offer and we gladly accepted to start working with him, even because we already knew how much he works hard for the bands on his roster.

4.How has the response been from the fans? What about the press?

Definitely huge and unexpected! We received so many great reviews, great feedback by the fans and we sold out all of our tees and cds while we were on tour in the US!

5.Does Devangelic have any tours coming up? If yes where are some places you all will be playing?

We just got back home from the US tour with our bros from Lust Of Decay and Coathanger Abortion; we’ll have our first European run in Septermber with our friends Antropofagus, Bloodtruth and To Feed Of Flesh and then we’ll play some festival around Europe like Carnage Feast and Lowlands Death Fest

6.Who are some bands you have shared the stage with? If you could set up a dream tour/show who are some bands{Past or present} you would love to share the stage

It’s pretty difficult to say. We would love to share to stage with bands that we grow up with like Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse and a lot more. We already shared the stage with some of the sickest bands in the planet like Gorgasm, Condemned, Guttural Secrete, Unmerciful and Mortal Decay and we’re going to play with Incantation, Bolt Thrower, Grave, Wormed so we’re pretty honored and happy about that!! Anyway let’s say dream tour for me would be: Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Hour Of Penance and Devangelic!

7.Devangelic comes out of the Italian metal scene what is your opinion of Italy's metal scene?

Well, in these years there are so many great and hard working bands making the scene growing up in Italy and personally I’m really happy about it! We have a lot of bands like Hour Of Penance, Septycal Gorge, Putridity, Vulvectomy, Antropofagus, Bloodtruth, Unbirth, Logic Of Denial and the good thing is also that the major part of the bands are not competing, but just help and support the others, that’s what the music scene need!

8.Who are some of your all-time favorite Italian bands? Are their any new bands you feel the readers should watch out for?

I’d say the bands I mentioned before so: Hour Of Penance, Septycal Gorge, Putridity, Vulvectomy, Antropofagus, Bloodtruth, Unbirth, Logic Of Denial and for a great new outcome people should check Xenomorphic Contamination!

9.In your opinion what is the best and worst thing about the underground metal scene? And what does underground metal mean to you?

The best thing in the metal underground scene is the support from the fans first, they ARE the scene, and then the neverding support between each band. The worst thing is the exactly opposite, so bands that act like rockstars and talk shit about everyone else just because other bands do more then them, but luckly it doesn’t happen very often!

10.Mario do you or any members of Devangelic play in side bands? If yes please tell the reader's about them.

Sure! I play in Vulvectomy, Paolo plays in Putridity and Alex plays as a session drummer with Indecent Excision, Vomitous and he also plays with different bands in many genres

11.Mario you play the guitars for the band when did you start playing the guitars? Are you self taught or did you take lessons when you were younger?

Started to play guitar when I was 12 years old. I had some private lessons with a teacher but then I've started to play self taught because I wanted to play death metal and extreme music and noboby can teach you to play for example Cannibal Corpse haha

12.Who are some of your influences/favorite guitarist? Do you play any other instruments?

My favorite guitar players are Dimebag Darrel from Pantera (one of my favorite bands) and Pat O'Brian (Cannibal Corpse). Yes I play also piano.

13.What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Reading books, playing with PSIII, watching movies, drinking beers.

14.Mario thank you for taking the time to fill this out.Do you have any final comments for the readers?

I would like to remind everyone that our first CD “Resurrection Denied” is available yet on Comatose Music and soon on our official online store and in the main stores like Amazon, iTunes and Best Buy, and to keep posted on next Devangelic shows, follow us on our official Facebook Page:
