Engulfed Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
Engulfed came out of its tomb on 2010 in Kadikoy, because the band members were hungry for true oldschool blasphemic death metal. We started working on our songs since we came together and we've just released our first EP "Through The Eternal Damnation". Now, we are working on our first full length and waiting for the vinyl which will be released from Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

2. How would you describe your musical sound?
We are working on the songs with old school, rotten and blasphemic Death Metal style.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?Lyrics are all about fucked up religions, hate about all religions, chaos, destruction and the only true thing: DEATH!

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
Engulfed is about being engulfed by darkness, nothingness. That's what we want to tell whole world.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
So far, we had only 3 shows. The first one was with Undergang and the second one was in Istanbul, June 2012. The last one with Dead Congregation in Istanbul and I must say that they are really one of the best death metal bands of all time.

6. Do you have any touring plans?
We don't have any touring plans at this moment. Our first target is to finish the writing process of our album. Maybe, after this we will be able to hit the road.

7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
All reactions satisfied us. We are reading critics every day and they are all good.

8. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
Our other projects are going well. I am working on 3rd album with my other band Decaying Purity. Our drummer Aberrant and I have an other project called Diabolizer and we're currently working hard on our first release. By the way, Aberrant's other band Impuration's first release "Sanctities We Raped" is nearly out. Highly recommended!

What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
We will play the same old school shit until the band will be dead.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Actually this question has not a lucid answer. I can't give you any clear examples because the things I'm influenced by are not the bands that I always listened to. It could be anything. Of course the early 90's death metal had the major impact on our style. But if I have to give you some present bands names these are Maveth, Anatomia, Resurgency, Grave, Voidhanger.

11. How would you describe the underground metal scene in your home country of Turkey?
All full of shit and a lot of posers around here. Actually Turkey hasn't got an underground metal scene except Kadikoy.

12. How would you describe your views on Occultism?
Actually I am interested in our musical things.

13. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Hanging with friends, trying to survive, movies, books and of course working and thinking about music.

14. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?Support only the true and qualified bands. Thanks for the interview.
