You are almost 4 years on the scene. What are you most proud
of achieving as a band, and have there been any defining
moments that stand out in your memories?
thing we are really proud of is that we managed to release
our EP “Viral Resurrection” by ourselves. It took quite
a while and some struggle from the recordings to the
release, but it was a cool experience. Yes, there have
been couple of defining moments in our career until now. The
first show we played of course, or our releaseshow in
january 2014, which was pretty awesome and the day we signed
our contract with Bret Hard Records was devinetely a great
moment as well!
Your song titles and art/imagery are utterly bizarre,
sickening, often suprising and original I think too. Are you
aiming for specific imagery? What is NECROSPHERE all about?
you! Ha ha. I would not say that we are aiming for a
specific imagery or symbolic. As long as it is dark, brutal
or disturbing it fits us well. Necrosphere are just about
Death Metal, nothing more and nothing less.
Let´s talk about yuur latest release ""Viral
Could you tell me something about the process of making
these 5 songs? How long time it took to record it and in
what manner you wrote ideas for this material?
It is pretty simple. Mostly one of our guitarists comes up
with a riff or sometimes an already finished song, records
it at home with a drum computer, sends it to the other
bandmembers via social network and we let him know what we
think. During the rehearsals we arrange the song together.
It took us just a few days to record the EP. But for the
upcoming album we will give ourselves some more time.
Have you as a band developed an aesthetic that is uniquely
yours? How have you developed a sound that is all yours?
What influences have been the most important to you guys?
kind of. Many death metal bands are trying to sound either
totally old school or much too technical these days. We
don’t follow any trends. It doesn’t work for us that
way. We just let it flow and don’t care if it sounds old
or new. If the song sounds brutal and it makes you wanna
mosh and bang your head, it suits us fine. When
it comes to influences it’s pretty hard to tell which
bands have the biggest impact on us. Every single one of us
is listening to many different kinds of music. But according
to reviews and people who watched our shows we do have
similarities with bands like Aborted, Cannibal Corpse,
Deicide and Suffocation.
think NECROSPHERE has a lot experiences in performing
live… so could you please share with us some memorable
shows the band played in? How important is a stage
appearance for a band like you?
make every show memorable, at least for ourselves. Ha ha.
You can be sure that funny things are happening if you are
on the road with us. Stage appearance is very
important, of course. If you want to get the crowd to party
with you during the show and buy your stuff afterwards, you
have to burn yourself out. No matter if 5 or 5000 people are
standing in front of the stage.
do you think about the current Death Metal scene worldwide.
Which are the bands you have the biggest respect for? Which
are the most outstanding and influential ones these days and
what does Death Metal mean to you at all?
think the scene is doing well right now. It’s nice to see
that many old bands which started 20 or 30 years ago are
still putting out records and playing shows all around the
world. And these are also the bands I have the biggest
respect for. Most of the musicians have day jobs to pay the
bills, but they still tour their asses off for months every
year. I think the most outstanding bands these days are
Cattle Decapitation, The Black Dahlia Murder, Benighted and
Aborted. They all have an distinctive sound. Death Metal
means to me to evolve without losing integrity, to keep it
brutal instead of following trends to become the next big
If you were forced to place your band on a scale of other
black metal bands where would you end up?
don’t think that we achieved that much to be on some scale
at all. That’s a job for the press editors in the future. Ha
your rehearsals be considered as some orgies ? I’ve heard
something like « one song, a beer ». You must be totally
drunk at the end of the rehearsales, isn’t it ? Can you
still play in those conditions ?
Hell no! First
of all we all need to get to the rehearsals by car and I
don’t think that it’s very productive to get wasted
during the rehearsals, especially when you are writing
songs. It’s more like one rehearsal, one beer. Ha ha.
I personally am not a great friend of humans. I think most
people suck big time. What is wrong with mankind in your
agree with you on that. I’m not a misanthrope, but I’m
really fed up with all that shit happening every day. And as
long as there are greedy bastards steering the world’s
fate and religious fundamentalists killing people for gods
that don’t exist, there is no hope for mankind. But they
will be there until the last day. So, we’re fucked. Ha ha.
On our new record there will be a song called “The End Of
All Flesh” which is dealing with this subject and how
humanity comes to an end.
Over the years death metal has evolved to be not just one
specific sound. Is there any specific death metal sound that
means more to you than the other?
that’s a difficult question. I would say I’m mostly into
the US Death from the nineties. But as long as it’s not
porngrind or that slam shit, I can deal with it.
OK, we have become to the end. If I have missed anything
please feel free to add to this interview.

is going to be released in fall via Bret Hard Records. So
