Fate Unburied Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
1 - We are a four-member Death Metal band from Vicenza (IT), active from 2012. We came out with an EP “Dehumanized Society” (2012) and on 27th March of this year we released our first full-length album “Logos” via Sliptrick Records.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?
- We developed our sound starting from Death Metal, which is the most recognizable one in our tunes, but it’s surrounded by various influences. We wanted it to be something new and very
personal, so we improved it with a progressive and groovy attitude, combining driven and 
punchy riffs with melodic and inspired ones.

3.This is the first release since 2012, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time span?
 - In 2012, when we published our first EP, we played with a guy who was guitarist and the main vocalist. After he left the band we needed to replace him, so some time later our guitarist
Francesco joined us, but we still didn’t have a singer so the other guitarist Riccardo started to
sing. For this reason we needed some time to re-arrange and work on our songs, in order to
make them sound the best!

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
4 - Our lyrics mainly deal with psychological or philosophical topics. In particular, in our latest  album all the lyrics are connected by the Greek concept of “Logos”, a natural law which leads
the universe and the mankind. We describe and analyze the human behaviors and their relation with it. This law may be listened and told, and that’s what we did in this work.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Fate Unburied'?
5 - Our name is taken by Foscolo’s sonnet “To Zakynthos”. We made our interpretation of the lasts lines: “…and our fate already written, the unmourned grave.”. We think it gives us a deep and hidden meaning, which probably contributes to making our music more interesting.

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
6 - We played many shows in the last years, sharing the stage with amazing bands. Between them
there is a great metal fest in Venice (Death Over Venice), with amazing bands like Hideous Divinity and some shows supporting the european tours of Kingcrow, Votum and Darkfall. We try to make our live performances engaging and powerful, giving the best to amaze the audience.

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
7 - We want to play around Italy next year to support our new album, but for the next one we are
planning to tour abroad maybe in Germany or east Europe.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?
8 - Our music is still not yet widely known abroad, but we had some very positive feedback from
people who listened to us for example in Norway, Germany or Japan. We are so glad that our
music is such appreciated!

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
 - We are already working on new tunes for our next album. In this one the progressive aspect of
our sound will be improved, we will make it more various and emphasize the difference between strong and atmospheric parts. We like to keep evolving our sound and experiment new solutions.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
10 - All of us has very different musical influences, but we have some bands that mainly influence our sound, such like Cynic, Gojira, Animals as Leaders, Meshuggah and Carcass. Anyway we keep discovering new music, for example nowadays our vocalist Riccardo is listening to The Dillinger Escape Plan, and the guitarist Francesco is very well engaged with Periphery. Not always our musical taste coincide, but this helps in developing an heterogeneous sound!

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
11 - Music is our main interest and we put all our devotion into it, anyway some of us have other
hobbies like sports.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
12 - As an emerging band, we know how hard can be to have visibility and get some results,
put if you believe in your music and do it with passion, you only have to persist with determination, and you’ll get where you want, don’t give up!
