Interviews: Immorium


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Melodic Death Metal band, Immorium, from Australia. 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?

The band name came from a concept that we had while trying to decide on our original lyrical content. It's kind of a play on words originating from the phrase Time Immemorial. As Dutch started getting into Myan and Meseptonic history these topics started to flow naturally into the lyrics, especially on Universum. Dave handled most of the lyrics on the upcoming album.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I think for most of us this stems from what we enjoyed listening to and seeing live. We wanted to contribute towards our genre and be a part of this scene. There is also the challenge of playing higher tempos and maintaining melodies and clarity that also is personally fulfilling. We also do enjoy combining aspects of other genres into ours to mix things up and keep the music fresh, interesting and allow for improvisation at times.

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

Jared and Dutch were friends and attended shows together. We hung out a lot and always talked of writing music and how cool it would be to have our own band. Jared also was playing a lot of guitar at the time and Dutch was keen on what he was doing. We set out recruiting like minded members and starting to write music that we wanted to play as a collective. If you don't enjoy it then we don't do it.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Dutch - Opeth

Jared - Insomnium

Dan - Wolfheart

Nick - Behemoth

Dave - Pantera

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Life and what we experience. We want to be able to share our creativity with the listener and help them to escape the everyday realities. Early on the original lyrics were inspired by the philosophical ideologies around Mayan and Meseptonic histories. Touching on astrology themes as well. Dave's new lyrics focus more on personal growth and overcoming adversaries. These can be interpreted either as internal or external struggles. We try to convey an emotional and empathetic sound to the listener and match that with lyrics as well.

6. Where was your last gig?

Supporting Bloodbath in Sydney, Australia. For a lot of us this was a huge deal. Bloodbath is such an iconic band and it was an honour to play on the same stage as them.

7. Where would you like to act?

Immorium has always been focused on performing live. If given the opportunity we would love to tour Europe, Japan and the US. Of course, when Covid is over haha.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Pick any of the band's from question 4. We all have our idols and dreams. With Immorium we are hoping to be able to bridge the gap in some of the metal genres. Being able to play along side bands like Dragonforce and then something massively heavier like Bloodbath. This gives us a lot of options and that we don't fall in one category.

9. Whom not?

I don't think we would be able to support a country band or hip hop band. I don't think the patrons of those shows would really understand or get our music haha.

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

This comes down to how you look at every situation. First show? Always going to be nerve racking. As time goes on it becomes second nature because you love performing and seeing peoples reactions.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

There are so many. Each member has their own reason for picking up their instrument too. For influences on the band's sound as a whole we take a lot from the Swedish Gothenburg and the Finnish melo death genre's and scenes. We also try to keep ourselves relevant with our sound by using the latest technologies and experimenting with different techniques.

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

I think our drummer was asked to sign an album he wasn't on. Jared had

13. What do you think of your fans?

We wouldn't be able to perform if we didn't have fans of our music. it drives us to better ourselves and write new music. In a nutshell, we appreciate and thank our fans from the bottom of our hearts.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your site is awesome! Being able to go to one place and have a plethora of information, bands, interviews and music from all over the world is beyond awesome. It can be a rabbit hole at times too. So much to find out. Immorium are really appreciative and humbled by being featured on this site.

15. Something add?

Just a huge thank you to everyone who has helped Immorium get to where we are. Partners, family members, fans, mates and everyone who takes time to listen to our music and comes to the shows, a huge thank you. Stay heavy and if you get the chance to see us live, please come up and say hi!
