Interviews: Architectural Genocide


In this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Brutal Death Metal band Architectural Genocide from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Architectural genocide is a thought out plan for total annihilation. We knew we wanted something that illustrates the significant impact on existence. The name came from, at the time, a potential band member. They just said it and it stuck. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We feed off the energy of this music. The use of harsh vocals combined with complex riffs, double bass, and blast beats is life to us. With the exception of Jonathan, we were indoctrinated into this form of expression at an early age. We’re all slaves to this artistic outlet. The idea of creating aggressive, intricate, and inspiring music is something that keeps us all motivated to continue, not only with the band but in life as well.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

All of us vaguely knew of each other from being in the Houston metal scene. Our old projects played shows together with the exception of Dan, who filled in on vocals in one of Jonathan’s previous bands. As far as inception, I, Nat, live roughly 70 miles north of Houston and, at the time, I was diligently looking for people to collaborate with musically. I drove out to Houston to jam with a dude and the dude invited someone to tag along. That tag along was none other than Jonathan. Once we started jamming, I quickly realized there was natural chemistry between Jonathan and myself. From there, Jonathan and I started writing while searching for others to fill the remaining positions in the band. Since Dan had already worked with Jonathan, it was an easy transition to add him to the ranks. After trying out a bassist that ended up not working out, Jonathan directly reached out to Matt, who had been out of the bass game for a couple years, and told him to strap up because there’s work to be done. Since then, we’ve been a team of goof nuts trying to spread our peanut butter on the death metal bagel. Mmmmm bagels.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Dan: Cephalic Carnage

Matt: The Black Dahlia Murder

Jonathan: Gorgasm

Nat: Soreption

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Nothing is forever so we’re heavily motivated by our desire to leave an impression on the metal universe. The idea of being engrained into a community of like-minded individuals dying for the sake of extreme music inspires us deeply.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last show was a few weeks ago. We made the 9-hour trek from Houston to Amarillo. We almost ran out of gas on a country road in the middle of nowhere because we were so excited to check out a canyon not too far from the show. Thankfully, we made it to the show, and it was a killer time. Shout out to Chuy and Jennifer for putting us on!

7. Where would you like to perform?

We would like to perform wherever we can. We want to reach where people want us. If we end up getting a huge fanbase in caves, we want to do plenty of cave tours. If we get some fans in the deep sea, we want to play underwater. Let’s do this, science!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We want to be working stages with those who inspire us. It would be surreal doing shows with Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation.

9. Whom not?

We’re open to gigging with anyone who’s down. We seek vibes from a variety of influences, except Nickelback. Yeah, definitely not playing shows with Nickelback.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Some of us have suffered from stage fright. The muscles tighten up, anxiety fills the body, and doubt makes its way to the forefront of the brain. As hard as it may be, stop thinking about all of that. Worry about the task at hand. Don’t get caught up in the psychology of those spectating, either. Express yourself and enjoy yourself!

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

The band has taken heavy inspiration from Inveracity, Inherit Disease, Insidious Decrepancy, and any other band that starts with the letter “I.”

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

We’re still relatively new, so not much has happened on this front, but we have had a fan let us crash at his place after a show one night, and he left Batman playing on his huge projector the entire time. We all woke up thinking our parents were dead.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We’re hella appreciative of the fans. They are the foundation for our movement.

14. What do you think of our site?

We think the site is great. We thoroughly support outlets bringing awareness to and promoting the death metal movement.

15. Something add?

If there’s something you’re wanting to pursue, whether it is music-related or not, do it! Life is short, and you only get one, so go make a difference in a way that makes you happy.
