Unsacred Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
We started in the winter of 2011 in Richmond, VA as a 4-piece. We did a small amount of touring through the last couple years and released 3 separate EP’s before our full length with Forcefield Records.

2.Recently you have released a full length album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from your previous ep’s?
-The musical sound on False Light is our attempt to challenge ourselves and move forward from our previous releases. It also sounds different since we have a different singer than all of the other EPs.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
The negative effects of the exploration of one’s mind and the pure, fucked up reality that is mankind.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Unsacred’/
No response.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
All the generator shows that we have played in Richmond and Asheville, NC. Our stage performance attempts to eliminate all the bullshit associated with live music (long rants, mercy plugging, insincere thanks, etc.). We try to set up, play, and break down as quickly as possible so as to draw the least amount of attention to ourselves.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

7.The new album was released on Forcefield Records, are you happy with the support they have given the new album?
Yes. Tim has been awesome to work with, he has helped us gain a lot of great connections, and we are very appreciative of him for giving us this opportunity.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal and crust?
We have received mixed reviews, not unlike any other band in any other genre of music.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We hope to continue to push ourselves as musicians and songwriters.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influenc eon your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We all come from different musical backgrounds. Most of our heavy influences lie in punk and metal. We believe that you can take inspiration from any form of artistic expression.
Scott (drummer): I’ve been heavily listening to Phillip  Glass’s piano works, The Marked Men, Craft, and Thin Lizzy.
Hunter (bassist): Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, and Lil Ugly Mane
Miguel (guitarist): Craft, Ravencult, Entombed, Dead In the Dirt.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Psychadelics, BMX, skateboarding, smoking copious amounts of marijuana, and BBQ’n.

- We takin’ over 2k15 gon’ be a big one.  *puffs/passes*
