Interview with Vitreoous done by Patrick
1.Hails please introduce yourself to the readers and how are things going in Spain these days?
Hi, here M. from Vitreoous, guitars, vocals and concept of the band, glad to share some words. Well Spain is growing in terms of quality, death, black and grind are the three
main standars that are getting a notorious lurk abroad. Also glad of take the right steps towards sonic malformations.
2.When did you first get the idea to start this band and how did you choose Vitreoous as the name of the band?
Well, it was fortuitous yet unexpected, the project was in my head for ages and frozen. Just got in touch with NHT, the other potential member of Vitreoous and both thought that
could be quite interesting to deform the old school BM canon. The band name is merely the multilayered perspective of music and its human feelings behind it. We are observers, we mistake, we deform
and malform whatever on our hands.
3.I believe Vitreoous is a two man band are you currently looking for new members to join the band or do you prefer to work as a two man band?
Yes you are right, we are just two. I think we are not close to welcome a third entity but by now we are working pretty well like this. If someone understands the message and target
just drop some lines of interest via facebook or bandcamp and we will see.
4.Chants Of Deprecation is the bands debut EP. how long did it take you two to write the music for the debut EP.?Do you both work on the music or does one member usually write everything?
The Ep as I pointed out above, was written long time ago, the writing of it was really intense and made the most of the momentum. Both of us write the music, my layer is guitars, noises, vocals and art, while NHT is the master
who plays drums, bass, noises, synths. This dual atoli assembly gathers tightly. We are working on the coming full length and will take a different dimension....expectant.
5.Who usually takes care of writing the lyrics and what are some topics written about on Chants Of Deprecation ?
I do usually take care of this, NHT has other beautiful skills behind tools I am not well doctrinated of. So my duty is to write and choose topics such as
malformed deities, obsolete creed, nothingness, despise and sorrow.
6.Where can the readers buy the debut EP. and does the band have any other merchandise available or coming soon?
Do please take a look to these to websites. Digital version would be great if any labels offer a good deal, by now the Ep will be only released on tape by Flesh Vessel (Usa) and Vertebrae (Europe).
7.Have you started working on new music for the next EP. or would you like to work towards a full-length?
The next logical step is to release a full length, it will contain different ingredients, harsh harmonies, darker vibes yet disgusting and
intense riffing without respecting certain roots.
8.Will you look for a label to work with or do you prefer to self-release your own music?
Well the Ep will be released by two labels but we would like to push it, no boundaries, no enemies.
9.Vitreoous comes out of Spain's black,death metal scene what is your opinion of Spain's blackend death scene?
Well the so called word scene is quite tricky here. Worst: bands and most of them do not normally care about others, probably selfishness, who knows and who cares.
Best: good potential in few of them, serious and determined. Besides getting ideas and message clear. Through years we both hae seen that if you trust your
project and you work seriously you will be rewarded sooner or later. We destroy than construct, pitiful, but we dont care. Past years do not matter.
10.Who are your all-time favorite bands coming out of Spain?And are their any new bands you feel the readers should check out soon?
Hard to say, many to mention and many to forget, just kidding.From past to future: Foscor are great even they took other path (to me a better one), Necroven, Atrexial, Aversio Humanitatis, Osmosis,
Finally the future bands, who knows, Balmog, Mathryrium, these two are good bands who follow the standard and refresh the genre. Graveyard is quite dense too and vivid. So many.... I am addicted to
11.Besides bands are their any honest,reliable label's or distro's you could recommend to the readers?
Damnatio ad Bestias, Krucyator, Fistbang, Vertebrae, Flesh Vessel, are the latest ones that come to my mind. I do normally like to know their protocol and principles as labels, they are
the other side of the mirror to see what works out or not.
12.What does black metal mean to you?
My perspective comes from a more death metal subgenre but I do respect the oldies as portrayed in the Ep. Nowadays BM turned into a void of excess, Bm is undesrstood in
many ways, thats the beauty or the ogre of it. I do like to express it from depressive, violent, intense, dark, cosmic, ritualistic layers, just mixing those feelings we get what we want.
I think that BM has many ways to say we are here as generic death metal turned into slam hyper brutal bands and just a few like dead congregation, cruciamentum, energunem, sabbatic goat,
portal, impetuous ritual, diocletian and so learnt to evolve and dissolve the words of death metal and black into a new fresh chemical potion. Grimbergen speaks for me.
13.Besides working in Vitreoous do either of you work with other bands or solo projects?
Yes, NHT is working on his solo project called Dee Em Tee, do keep an eye to avantgarde lovers of death metal and myself I left Osmosis dormant but working on a duo of dirty death metal blending
European and American sounds of the old school pattern.
14.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final comments for the readers?
