Interviews About Albums: At The Plates - Omnivore (2023)

In this new interview, we sat down with the American Culinary Death Metal band At The Plates to ask questions about their upcoming album "Omnivore"

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

Blistering death metal that, beneath the tongue-in-cheek song titles and nutritiously dense lyrics, contains a heart-warming message sure to touch the lives of aging metalheads the world over.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

Omnivore represents us in our natural state. We start out consuming flesh and vegetation and, as we get older, we become more aware of what we consume; making lifestyle changes either out of necessity or desire. What we consume also shapes who we are throughout time. We are what we eat.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

Yer talkin' to him. Name's Tony - I'm the head chef 'round these parts. In all seriousness: While I did the bulk of the songwriting, Tyler and Mario contributed as well. Tyler wrote all of his leads and solos, and Mario provided some input on song structure.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

Tough one. It's a toss-up between With Their Cutlets, He'll Marinate, or Terminal Filet Disease. The former is because I'm really proud of how hard it hits and how many twists and turns the song takes you in. The latter because it deals with the central theme directly and I also like how dynamic it is. Plus my friend Danica did a terrific job laying down the guest vocals during the song's climax.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what it is?

You are what you eat - but it doesn't have to determine your destiny. Change is always possible if you want it.

6. Are there some lyrics that you'd love to share?

We should have never come here
We were promised alien cheeks but there are none
There are none
I don’t know what we thought would happen
But it certainly was not this
To be forced to eat this alien food
When it all tastes like piss

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like musically or friends, family, someone you'd love to thank especially?

My own personal health struggles forced me to step back and make some changes to my life. Musically, I was inspired to go in a more melodic direction owed in large part to my love for melodic death metal - a genre near and dear to my arterially clogged heart.

I would like to thank not only my fellow chefs Tyler and Mario but everybody involved in the production of the album. Without you, this would not have been possible. And I want to thank my wife for her patience with me as I cussed my way through each recording session.

8. Something to add?

Our new album comes out on January 5th! We thank everyone for any and all support. Stay hungry.
