Interviews: Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Brutal Death Metal band, Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement, 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?

Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement was the name I came up with for the fact that Jay’s whole concept was Samurai war, so I decided to go with what a body would like being finished by a stellar soldier (ninja/samurai).  Jay was really into this video game with Samurais and war, etc., so it gave him inspiration to write on this. I totally loved it because I’m not for fictional “cutting people up” lyrics and anti-Christian themes, it’s been done to death. We figured this would be innovative.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I let Jay know I wanted to have a nostalgic Deicide sound to it (obviously we are not that band and there is only one) but we were very influenced by their style of writing.  My guitar playing moved more in that direction and felt adamant about the stylistic direction. Jay actually did an amazing job on the albums (the first one I think was his greatest vocal performance ever) and he tried emulating Glen Benton’s style to some degree.

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

Yes, Jay and I play full time in Lust of Decay so we knew each other many years prior to doing SCE.

4. Each band member favourite band?

I’d have to say my favorite all time band (if I could only pick one album) is Lykathea Aflame (now known as Lykathe) and if I had to give a second it would either be Defaced Creation (now members of Aeon). Jay’s favorite band is truly Hate Eternal.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

My inspiration comes from the band I’m truly moved by and SCE is truly inspired by Deicide’s (musical style as well as vocal patterns) Steve Asheim is my favorite drummer and one of my biggest influences. Jay follows suit on this and his vocals really key off the intensity of the drums and how the guitars fit in each section. He wants the music done first and then he does the vocals. This works really well for us.

6. Where was your last gig?

SCE has never played a “live” gig, but we have our first gig next year at the Chicago Domination Fest ran my friend Miguel. We are stoked.

7. Where would you like to act?

We believe the first gig will truly be memorable at the Chicago Domination Fest and our new album will out right before that.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? Whom not?

We love all metal bands, so we have no problem on who we play with… we truly love sharing the stage with all people (in our other bands) We don’t care who we play with. Jay and I embrace people for who they are. For example: I’m a Christian, and yet I’d play with bands who didn’t believe in Jesus because I try to see the best in those people, and who knows, we might have a great conversation.

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

We haven’t struggled with stage fright because we’ve played so many times, but sometimes you can have self-doubt. For example: “Am I good enough?” “Have I practiced enough?” “Do I remember the songs?” “What if I train wreck the band?”. The best thing I can recommend as well as Jay is this… find what works for you prior to show and stick to the same thing. For example: I warm up for thirty plus minutes on my pads (pedals for feet and hands), drink my energy drink and get focused on the set. I do this every show and will not get away from it… as this is my special time to get prepared.

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

Inspiration comes from all metal bands, we really don’t have particulars because every band has something special to give to the scene and we all can still learn something new from each band!

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

I’ve never had a fan ask for anything weird.. maybe signing broken drumsticks with my blood and sweat on them, but that isn’t too out of bounds.

12. What do you think of your fans?

We love our fans… without them we are bunch of guys playing music for the walls. The fans are the true backbone!  They buy the merchandise, they help to keep the venues opened, they make you feel good regardless of how your set goes, they keep the scene alive. They are everything.

14. What do you think of our site?

Your site is awesome! We love it!

15. Something add?

We thank you guys for taking the time for Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement to do this interview. We are blessed and appreciate your support and what you do for the scene. Look out for our third release coming in 2021 titled ‘Constructing the Cataclysm’.  God bless you guys.
