Interview  with  Desekryptor  done  by   Patrick

1.Hello please  introduce yourself  to the readers  and  at what  age  were you  when you first  got  into  metal  music?

This is P.A., guitarist/vocalist for DESEKRYPTOR. I can remember being in sixth grade on the school bus in rural Indiana when an older kid, thinking it would freak me out, handed me the headphones of his Sony Walkman and said, "Hey listen to this!" That was Master of Puppets and I got pretty obsessed with it, learning the title track's main riff on guitar within a few weeks.

2.Who  were  some  of the  first  bands you  listened to  and  who  are  some  of your  current favorites?

Early bay area thrash like the aforementioned and Megadeth; 90's death metal like Morbid Angel, Obituary... Some new records we're digging are the latest from Phrenelith, Ascended Dead, and Impetuous Ritual.
3.When  did you  first  meet the  other members  of  the  band?And  how  did you  all  choose the name  Desekryptor  for the band  does it  have a special  meaning?

We met each other through playing shows in Fort Wayne. I think we recognized quickly that joining forces would produce some grotesque results. I came up with the name DESEKRYPTOR. Not sure how it came to me, just chopping shit up really. All the best names are taken obviously.
4.What  is  the  current  line up  of the  band? And  for the readers  who  have  never  heard  Desekryptor's music  how  would you  describe the  bands  sound?
E.S. - guitar
P.A. - guitar, vocals
T.S. - drums
Soon adding a dedicated bass player. 

DESEKRYPTOR is old school death metal but has no reservations about taking a song in a fucked up, not so old school direction.
5.Blood  Harvest Rec.  is  getting  ready to  release the  new demo  how  did you  all come  in  contact  with this  great  label?

We were lucky enough to be contacted by Rodrigo of Blood Harvest and jumped at the opportunity. Obviously an excellent label with a solid catalog of releases.

6.Chasm Of Rot  is  the  bands  second  demo tape to date  how  long  did it take  the band to  write the music  for this  release?Does the  whole  band  take  part  in  the writing  process or does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

This demo was definitely a collective effort. E.S. and I wrote a bunch of riffs on our own over the course of a few months, but when we got together to work out the song arrangements they came together very quickly.
7.Who   usually  takes  care  of  writing the  lyrics and  what  are  some  subjects  and  topics the  band  writes  about?

I've written all the lyrics thus far. Some themes are necromancy, reanimation, possession, mysanthropy, homicidal ideation.

8.Does    Desekryptor   play  live  very  often  or do you  prefer to  work in  the  studio?

We haven't played any shows yet. E.S. is on tour right now and the plan is to start practicing with a dedicated bass player when he returns.

9.Are  their  any  shows or  tours  coming up  in support  of   Chasm Of Rot ?If  yes  where  will  the  band  be  playing?

Nothing planned yet but hope to play some shows soon.
10.Besides  working  in    Desekryptor   do  any  of  the  members  currently  play  in  any  other  bands or  solo  projects?

E.S. also plays in Nak'ay and Warsleaze; I also play in Scythemaster and Ecferus.
11.What   does  underground  metal   mean to you ?

Metal with no regard for, and in opposition to, convention and mainstream appeal. Metal that only considers the diehards and says F.O.A.D. to everyone else.
12.  Desekryptor  comes  out  of  Indiana's metal  scene   what  is your  opinion  of   Indiana's scene  over the  years?

Nothing terribly groundbreaking happening, but some solid bands nonetheless.
13.Who  are your  all-time  favorite bands coming out of  Indiana? And  are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

Some good bands of past and present: FOG, Hordes of the Lunar Eclipse, Graves of the Endless Fall, Ptahil, Swamp Squat, The Lurking Corpses.
14.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out  do you  all  have   any  final  comments  for the  readers?

More aural filth to come by way a debut full length. Don't know when but the desecration of riffs is under way!!!
