......::::GRISLY AMPUTATION (USA)::::......
Date: March 2013
(Answers by Chris Dissell -  Drummer)

This is a band I accidentally discovered at METAL ARCHIVES page, and was inmediately attracted by the music, very sick and raw. They are funny guys, specially Chris who contacted me through Facebook. He told me this is the very first time the band get interviewed since their foundation. So yeah!!! I must admit this is a honor for me. Let´s read what do they have to talk us about the band and their recently released full lenght album.   

1. Hello Sickos!!! first of all, please introduce your band to the readers by explaining what is your bandname "GRISLY AMPUTATION" talking about?

Grisly Amputation is talking gore, guts, and death!


2. yeah indeed I have noticed this elements on your song-titles as well as on the cover artwork from your debut full lenght. So I can assume you are also highly influenced by gore and horror movies? Which other kind of inspiration you got at the moment you write your music and lyrics?

Well, Rob Grisly writes the lyrics but he does get his ideas from gore movies, and many other violent themes. and I think he does it quite we'll! We kind of noticed that alot of newer bands were getting away from this type of grind metal so were keeping the faith and going for the old school grind!

3. You Chris are one of the founder members, what can you tell us about the progression of the band during all this 3 years of career? why it took too much time to release an album??

Ha!, money was the biggest factor but we got hooked up with a local label called InnerVenous IV. They were cool enough to help us release it. The progression is what it is since all the guys in the band all have lives and responsabilities, but were moving up pretty fast now! 

4. You know the development in the metal scene - it's more and more splitting up into different genres and the fan bases are more and more getting in conflicts with each other. What is your opinion about this, considering you are most devoted to the" old school" side of the extreme music.

We love the old stuff, death , Malevolant Creation, Suffocation, that kind of stuff rules but the newer metal with all the crab core, and clean vocals, ah were just not into it but we're not against it , whatever floats your boat.

5. How do you perceive the advances of technology and the internet changing the music industry in the future? Albums get leaked online all of the time. There are countless download sites and lots of people seem to be in preference of these blogs rather than purchasing CDs. Have you seen this affect your music?

Definitely noticed that and I don't see a way to control the music from getting stolen but it's cool that our CDs out there and the attention it brings hopefully pays off, 20 years ago there was no internet no Myspace, out fb, and bands had a hard time getting their tunes out, but now it's easy but the drawback is you don't always get paid. 

6. In your opinion, how much did the death metal scene change compared to the late '80-s/early '90-s? What are the most memorable memories would you extract from your early days as a metal fan?

Oh man, the death metal back then was so raw and new, I personally at that time was ready to graduate from Iron Maiden and Judas Priest to let's say Cannibal Corpse, the musician level was what really turned me on and the speed!

Death metal has Gotten real technical these days which is great too!

7. what can you tell us about your personal life aside of musician aspect? what are some of the things you do to occupy your spare time?

I've been trying to support Pittsburgh metal scene by going to shows and posting local bands on fb, I am also a huge hockey fan, I also have a kid that takes up alot of time and keeps my nose clean! 

8. Talking back about your recent release, how was the response the band gain so far? If possible share with us some positive and negative feedback towards this CD?

We'll honestly it's been totally cool! The CD has gotten about 10 reviews from metal sites and most of them have been really kind, some not so much but we'll take the good with the bad, we're stoked that people are are paying attention to us, quite humbling actually! 

9. I know GRISLY AMPUTATION has some experiences in performing live… so could you please share with us some memorable shows the band played in? Personally I would like to focus on your show with CANNIBAL CORPSE as supporter Act.

That Cannibal Corpse show kicked ass on so many levels! From all the exposure, to meeting the band, totally unbelievable! I 1st saw a post on fb from a friend that they we're coming here to Pittsburgh, so I asked around on how to get on the bill, Justin Gizzi from Liquified Guts pointed us in the right direction, I submitted our songs and Alex Webster picked us personally! How cool is that!? We also played with Nocturnal Hellstorm! Danny Lilker band that was cool also! All in all we've had about 20 shows and they've all been killer! 

10. What are the new or actual bands you would advise our reader to keep an eye on? And please mention the 5 top albums you are listening to at the moment?

Hmm, 1st Grisly Amputation lol, second Cannibal Corpse, 3 Rd Katakllysm, Suffocation, are some of the band I support, some of this new metal I'm just not all that into but if you know of something I need hear I'll be open to listen! Ok top 5 CDs I listen to now is Cannibals torture, deaths, latest one, Deicide new one, I also just purchased Liquified Guts CD which totally kills, and Rompeprop new one also! 

11. OK, please define death metal with your own words, and if death metal was a beer, which one would it be?

Lol ok death metal is the oxygen I breathe, I will die without it! beer is gross I'd rather compare it to jack Daniels, or anything liquid that puts hair on your balls! Just saying! : )

12. Well, my pal, that´s all for now, thanks a lot for your co-operation. I hope you enjoy this interview.. Some words you like to add?

Na, but thank you bro for your time! This was cool as fuck! Let us know when you're going to post this and I'll make sure you get some love! Horns bro!!
