Hi, Necroart. Greetings from Sick and Destroy team. What are you up to these days? I’m so glad to hear you are come back to the scene!
Hey guys, we’re very excited for this new album and we hope you all like “CAINO” because we think this is our best album…
Would you please introduce your band to our readers who are not aware of your band and music?
The band was born in 1999 to create a mix of black metal and Swedish death; we embraced many influences in all these years from depressive doom to progressive metal to dark metal…a couple of months ago we lost our synth player due to personal problems… this is our fourth album in almost 20 years of band.
Give us a little insight into the formation of the band. When and how did it happen?
I personally formed the band and I’m the only original member, obviously nothing can last forever so the members can change ideas about music. Anyway I’m glad for all we have done in these years in good or in bad.
At what age did you guys start playing instruments? Since when are you into metal music?
Necroart was born when we were about 20 years old, everyone of us played in other bands before joining Necroart. I played bass in some thrash/death metal band before start to sing in the band. I’m into metal since 1988 when I buyed “Seventh son of a seventh son”… Iron Maiden changed my life!
Necroart is about to release “Caino” on November. Tell us something about it. Walk us through all the tracks lyrics and meaning.
My lyrics talk about every dark sentiment and feeling of men; they have to be iconoclastic and esotheric in any form I write them. I don’t believe in any form of religions and these you can find on my Pain Propaganda.
How has been the response so far by the listeners? Have you started working on new songs already?
No, we have some new ideas but no songs are complete; as I told you before I’m glad of all we have done ‘till now, and I feel so because of the feedback of the crowd.
When and where did you play your first gig? How was the experience of going live for the first time?
Our first gig was a support to the black metal band Ancient in the first months of 2000; I remember that we played completely our first demo plus two covers “Deathcrush” and “Raining blood”; honestly I don’t remember if there was also “Black magic” as cover ahahahah.
What, according to you, is the secret behind band’s success?
“Success” ahahaha, I can tell you that perseverance is fundamental in this movement. Once there were bands and listeners and the crowd was always ready to listen to some new band, now I feel no more interest in underground music…
Ever had an epic fail moment during a gig?
More than one, but I can tell you about the third gig we played when our first drummer was totally drunk and get wrong every single song we played that night in front of 200 people ahahah…
If asked to differentiate Necroart from other bands in your country, how would you like to respond to it?
In Italy there are so many good bands in every kind of metal, a friend of us who wrote for Metal Hammer and some webzines have always said that if Necroart were born in Sweden could live just with the music for the quality of our albums. I don’t like to think that Necroart are more good than some others… really….
How compatible are band members with each other?
As in every band there are some members that are more compatible than others but the minds behind the band are always the same but everyone is important in the band.
Which bands/ artists do you draw your influences from? Which are your favorite local bands?
Definitely Arcturus, Samael, Moonspell and all the bands we listen to… in Italy I love many bands because I think they play with the attitude that many of others lost… think about Mortuary Drape, Novembre and others…
How do you guys manage jobs and gigs? Also how often do you guys gathering altogether just to fun?
Now it’s all more complicate because we have grown as men we all have families and jobs…the target by now is to play about 10 gigs from Italy and Europe to promote Caino…we rearsh one time at week usually and this is ok to play a killer gig for us.
Necroart is very promising formation. Talking of your future, 3 years from now, where do you see yourself?
Thank you very much for the good words you spent,I hope fro, here to three years to resist playng our music, I’m not able to think about my life without my band so I thinkwe will be on the road again!!
Well, that’s it. Thanks a lot for your time. Speak out to all your fans and supporters.
