Interview with Kapala done by Patrick
1.Hails please introduce yourself to the readers and when did you first meet the other members of the band?
We are Kapala and we're here to annihilate, desecrate and subjugate the filth and terrorize audio waves and ear drums. We met on 6th July, 2016 with only one objective. To crush the weak.
2.What is the current lineup of the band and who would you say are Kapala's biggest influences?
We now have recruited the mighty Pulverizer recently to lay down inhuman bombardments. S did good work with the band during 'Infest Cesspool' but had to leave because of personal reasons. Kapala's biggest influences will always be Conqueror, Blasphemy, Goatpenis, Black Witchery, Zygoatsis and various other such deadly legions.
3.Infest Cesspool is the band's debut Mcd which is being released through Dunkelheit Prod. how did you all come in contact with this great label?
We sent the promo track 'Homosapiennihilation' to various labels and Dunkelheit got in touch with us first which marked the beginning of our current unholy alliance.
4.How long did it take the band to write the music for the debut release? Does the whole band work on the music or does one member usually write everything?
We work as an unit always and 'Infest Cesspool' took an year to complete.
5.Besides the debut Mcd Infest Cesspool does the band have any other merchandise available for the readers? If yes what is available and where can the readers buy it?
Pre-orders for anti-scum armour have begun and buyers should contact the mighty Dunkelheit for them.
6.Kapala comes out of India's black, death metal scene what is your opinion of the scene in India?
Total fuckoff to the weak, scum infested "black metal" scene in India consisting of scarf wearing hipster opportunists, animal loving laveyan vegans, religious burzum rip-offs, cowardly facebook keyboard warriors, mediocre bands who talk about purity and 'true' black metal while playing with core and groove idiots, half-assed 'Vedic' imitators, Bollywood mallcore churchgoers and bands who brag about their stupid endorsements from guitar picks to strings. Total rejection of their retarded interpretation of the black/death art , pseudo-occultism and their peace-loving attitude. We hail only the bands of the true Kolkata Inner Order and a few others such as Dhwesha. Only Kolkata has kept the old school and true music alive in India and it is definitely the epicenter for such. Black/death is not for the comfort loving and complacent individuals. It's for real Sikfukks only!!
7.Who are some bands coming out of India you could recommend to the readers?
Tetragrammacide, Jyotisavedanga, Banish and the yet unreleased Necrodeity
8.Besides working in Kapala do any of the band members currently play in any other bands or projects?
Some of us are involved in various unholy projects that are yet to be finalized.
9.What does underground metal mean to you all?
Passion, honour and integrity form the foundation of the underground. It is simply not music it is a stand against the mass hypnosis and cultural degradation we get subjected to every single day. It is not about people-pleasing ; not about licking boots, backstabbing or being 'famous'. Above all it is about Pride because in a world of compromise some do not.
10.Does Kapala get to play live very often or do you prefer to work in the studio? Are there any tours or shows coming up in support of the debut Mcd?
Kapala is not limited to studio. Our live shows are limited since we play only if the lineup and promoters are worth it such as with and for our brothers of the Kolkata Inner Order. However in near future it is a possibility.
11.Has the band started working on new music for the next release? Have you thought about how many songs you would like to have the next release?
We have begun working on newer songs for another release and all details will be revealed when our efforts bear fruit.
12.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final words for the readers?
ANNIHILATE THE SCUM
