Interviews

MORTEM


We continue publishing Ind's interviews initially taken for Poetic 'zine. MORTEM were very laconic when answering this interview in 2001. But afterwards they were very resulting with new CD released in France (Warpath Records) which means sometimes it's no use talking around.


Ind: In 1993 you released LP "Amputator" and because brutal death apologists, 'cause there were quite a few high quality brutal bands in Russian at that time. Did you feel any euphoria or star fever? Did worldwide popularity seem very close?

Gregory: You must work hard to become popular. We tried and try hard. To become famous is a cherished dream of any band and we're not an exception.

Ind: Unfortunately in the middle of 90's you got disbanded. What was the reason?

Gregory: We had several reasons, absence of financing, drugs…

Simmons, MORTEM vocalist and SLAYER

Ind: I remember "Iron March" TV-Show, you were telling that new album "Filicide" is complete. Which means that after reunion you brought to studio old stuff, or did you change anything there?

Gregory: Yep, "Filicide" was composed in 1995. Euthanasia track was redone and rearranged in a couple of days before the recording.

Ind: How did you manage to resume playing? Was it a sudden impulse or a natural plan?

Gregory: Gregory is to blame. He purchased PC and convoked us together!

Ind: Did local stage changed considerably since your early days?

Gregory: Many bands are gone, other ones replaced them. It looks like now it is easier to record albums.

Ind: They say death metal days are gone as well.

Gregory: If someone byes CDs and attends gigs then everything is not that bad/

Ind: Gregory, how do you manage the band? You also attend rehearsals, write lyrics and function as sound engineer…

Gregory: Right, I attend rehearsals and take part in composing songs.

Ind: Are going to change lyrics, at least make it more complicated? Your lyrics is very simple sometimes…

Gregory: Music comes first, while lyrics id devoid of any conception.

MORTEM

Ind: "Amputator" comes with Addiction to Sexual Slaughter track. "Filicide" follows with Addiction to Sexual Slaughter Pt.2.

Gregory: That's an evident continuation.

Ind: Do you have a steady line up now?

Gregory: Steady enough, we are only replacing the bass player. Line up should be steady, it helps to understand musical ideas clearly.

Ind: Nearest plans, expectations…

Gregory: New material is being prepared and we have started live activity.
