Interviews: Burial Extraction

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Old School Metal band, Bruial Extraction, from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the project on his FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

It went all the way back to high school when I started the band Burial in Southern California. We took a break in 1994, but then my brother brought it back to life when he left for college a few years later in the Phoenix area. That lasted for a little while longer and then it stayed dormant until I moved back to Texas and decided to record some of the old tunes last year and rename the band Burial Extraction. It's a nod to the original concept, and adding "Extraction" to the name was like bringing the band back from the dead, so to speak.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

I grew up listening to metal, but after hearing Napalm Death's "Harmony Corruption" and Mortification's "Scrolls Of The Megilloth," I was hooked on death metal! To me, death metal is like the "jazz" of metal genres. Rules just don't seem to apply and it's a blast to play and write.

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

Derek and I never met prior. I was familiar with a couple of his projects like Blood Thirsty and Crowned In Sorrow. He also has a studio in Amarillo that I know of. I initially talked to him about doing some session work and recording. As we started to get together and play, it was obvious to me that he brought a lot more to the table than just session work. He's a brilliant musician and he brings Burial Extraction to life with his input and talent.

4. What is each band member's favorite band?

It's hard to name just one band, but Derek's favorite is probably Dream Theater and mine is Deliverance. While you can hear the thrash influence and even some melodic technical guitar work, other influences are Extol, Napalm Death, Mortification, and, of course, Death.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

All of our songs are about our faith. I found that when I write music about other subjects, it just doesn't inspire me as much. Sometimes, I dig a little into philosophy, too, but mostly, I write in the realm of theology.

6. Where was your last gig?

Well... the last time Burial played live was in 1994 back in San Diego opening for No Innocent Victim.

7. Where would you like to play?

I'm hoping we can start playing in Texas. Derek and I are both natives, but we live 5 hours away from each other, so it makes it kind of hard. It's definitely something I want to do shortly.

8. Whom would you like to play with?

I'd love to play with Living Sacrifice, Broken Flesh, or Hope Deferred. They're all great bands and all not too far from us.

9. Whom not?

I'd pretty much play with anyone.

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

You just got to have fun and not worry about anything else. Life's too short to worry about what everyone else thinks.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

For Derek, it's Extol and Arjen Lucassen of Ayreon / Star One. For me, it's Napalm Death and Steve Rowe of Mortification.

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

I've dodged that bullet thus far. Everyone's pretty cool.

13. What do you think of your fans?

I couldn't ask for a better group of fans!

14. What do you think of our site?

Y'all have lots of articles and announcements and do a great job at keeping us all up to date on the metal scene.

15. Something to add?

We have a new E.P. coming out a little later this year. Hopefully, we'll be able to play a couple of shows to support the music and see our fans!
