Interviews: Infection Code

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal/Noisecore band, Infection Code from Italy. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE. Questions answered by Gabrielle.

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

The idea for the name was created by our old bass player. It was a full nu-metal -era and there were many bands such as Fear Factory and Godflesh and we had this kind of musical influence. The word “Infection” is contamination and the word “Code” is something cold, anti-human, like machinery. Anyway, we planned it because we wanted some of the original and weird to identify our purpose of music.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Essentially because we love it. We are grown as musicians listening to this genre. Bands such as Ministry, Fear Factory, Godflesh, Red Harvest are sources of inspiration but also Thrash Metal and Hardcore. We love Sepultura, Kreator, Voivod, Strapping Young Lad, Death, Carcass. We have a large range of music that we love it.

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

We have played in many other bands before the Infection Code and our local metal scene is very small so we knew each other.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Gabriele, the singer loves Sepultura, Neurosis, Marillion, Kreator, Napalm Death, Pitch Shifter, Godflesh, and many others. Ricky the drummer loves Ministry, Korn, Carcass, Godflesh, Slayer, Chris our guitarist listens to Carcass, Slayer, Amon Amarth, Testament, Exodus while Dave the bass player, follows Napalm Death, Nasum, Cripple Bastard many things about the noise core scene and grindcore scene. Anyway, we love many musical genres, especially in the metal scene.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Our source of inspiration is many things in our daily life. We write a song when something bad or tragic happens in our life. For example in “Alea Iacta Est” our last album, we have written many songs about our dark feelings born in negative circumstances. There are some sources of inspiration about society, global warming, the war, or the last about the lockdown. All good sources of inspiration but in this album, we have focused our lyrics on other features. More personal peculiarities.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in Turin some days ago.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would like to act at a big festival or to open to some great international band.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We would like features with many bands. For example, Godflesh, Ministry or Carcass and Kreator, and many metal fests. As Wacken or Summer Breeze or our local metal festivals are right for us.

9. Whom not?

We don’t love to share the stage with power metal bands or folk metal bands because we don’t follow this kind of musical genre.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

During our career, we have made 300 live shows over and many times we have played in unstable and poor situations but we have played in great stage and professional venues also. It happens to suffer fright or insane situations during a show and it depends on many elements. Only a tip: don’t stop during a show. Whatever happens.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

We have many bands as sources of inspiration and we have changed many tastes during our career in musical influences. Anyway, there are always bands that will remain our guide as Ministry, Godflesh, Sepultura, Slayer, Neurosis, and Napalm Death but the list could be longer because we change our taste often.

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

We have quiet fans and I don’t remember about it.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are quiet people and absolutely they love the heavy metal music with visceral passion. We have few true fans but we are happy about this condition because our fans are stronger than all and they are totally dedicated to the infection.

14. What do you think of our site?

Breathing the core is a great source of information and news to know the underground metal scene and a good instrument to spread the infection of metal music through the young because we need a new generation and new audience and young music lovers.

15. Something to add?

Thanks for your support and thanks for the time and space spent on Infection Code. Our new album, Alea Iacta Est will be out for Argonauta Records on September 30th, so if you are interested check our platforms, social networks, and our website!!! Thanks a lot for all and support of the underground!!!
