Interview  with  Eteritus  done  by   Patrick  

1.Hello   when  did  you  all  first  meet? Was  it  long  before  you  all  formed   the  band? How  did you  all  choose the   Eteritus  as  the  band's  name  and  does  it  have  a  special  meaning?
We've actually met while forming the band, so no close prior acquaintances.
The bands name comes from the latin "Praeteritus" - neglected, ommited.
2.What   is  the  current  line-up  of   Eteritus   and  for  the  readers  who   have  never  heard the  bands  music  how  would  you  best  describe  it?
We've got Nitro waving the sticks in the general area of drums, Greg is the one with the van (bass player), Winter doing the actual fucking job (guitar), and Liam Tailor standing in the front trying to look nice (guitar, vocals).
Our style is probably best described as "Oldskull as fuck". Just listen to our promos and EP on Bandcamp for free, and You'll know what i mean.

3. Eteritus  is    getting  ready  to  release their  debut  cd "Following The Ancient Path"  through  Godz Ov  War Prod.  how  did you  all  come  in  contact  with  this  label?
Through sending lots of e-mails and CDs to every label possible. That's how it's been always done, and that's how it's done now.
4.When  writing  new  material  does the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or  does  one  member   usually  write  everything?
The latter, but not quite. While most of the writing is usually done by one person, the lyrics are always written by a different one, and the drum lines and some riffs sometimes change during the rehearsals.
5.Who   usually  takes  care  of  writing the   lyrics  for   Eteritus  and  what  are  some  subjects  the band  writes  about?
Nitro and Liam Tailor write all the lyrics, with some input on verse placement from the rest.
We sometimes write about he philosophies of life and death, other times about mythical characters (e.g. - "Elder God" from EP "Tales of Death" is about C'thulhu). There are also some more generic topics like fear of dying/of living, basic instincts and emotions.

6.Does    Eteritus   get  to  play "live"  very  often?  What  have  been  some  of  the  bands  most   memorable  shows to date?
We seem to have a tendency for oscillating between a period of playing some gigs for a couple of months, and not playing any gigs for a couple of months. Nevertheless, we keep rehearsing and composing regulary, so You can expect new stuff coming up regularly ine the future. And the most memorable show is porobably the one in an actual, big bunker.

7.Are  there  any  shows  or  tours  coming  up  that the  readers  should   watch  out  for? If  yes  where  are  some  places the  band  will  be  performing  and  who  are  some  bands  you  will  be  playing  with?
There are any to announce as of yet. Like us on Facebook and check our profile from time to time to keep up with the news, and maybe read some reviews or listen to some tracks in the meantime.
8.Besides  the  debut  cd   "Following The Ancient Path"  does  the  band  have   any other  merchandise   available  for  the  readers?  If  yes  where  can the  readers  buy  it? check out this site for the current stuff and this one, if You want to get a physical copy of the "Tales of Death" EP
9.In  your   opinion   what  is  the  best  and  worst  thing  about the  underground  scene  today?  And  what  does  Underground  metal  mean  to you?
 Underground is just the long way to mainstream.
Some bands want to be mainstream, some of them not. In nowa days underground is simple different thing that it was in 1980, 1990.
And this is the worst thing about underground scene today...

10.Besides  working  in   Eteritus  are    any  of  the   members  currently  work  with  any  other bands?  If  yes  please  tell the  readers  about  the  bands?
