X PUS Interview
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
OURS IS A BAND DEVOTED TO PURE AND TRUE EXTREME SOUND, WE TRY TO MIX UP THE GENRES WE'VE LOVED MOST: DEATH,BLACK AND WAR METAL...I OBVIOUSLY MEAN
"OLD SCHOOL MENTALITY". HUGE SOUNDS, CLEAN VOCALS AND ALL SORTS OF BULLSHIT THAT HAVE POLLUTED A MUSIC ONLY INTENDED FOR FEW PEOPLE WON'T FIND ANY SPACE
IN OUR SONGS. ONLY DARKNESS AND BLAPHEMY.
2.So far you have released a promo and a full length album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
PRIMAEVAL, RAW, BLACK AND BLASPHEMOUS. IN A FEW WORDS:"DEATH SMELLING BLACK METAL SOUND"!
3.Your lyrics cover some satanic, anti christian and occult topics, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in those topics?
YEAH, OUR LYRICS VARY FROM A "PERSONAL" POINT OF VIEW ABOUT SATANISM TO ITS MORE CLASSIC AS IT IS IN "LEFT-HAND PATH", FOR EXAMPLE. THE SAME GOES FOR THE
ANTICHRISTIAN LYRICS: IN THIS CASE AS WELL, THEY CAN FOCUS UPON CRITICISM AROUSING FROM PERSONAL IDEAS OR, SIMPLY, HISTORICAL ISSUES. VERY
LITTLE STUDYING IS NEEDED TO GET HOW AWFUL CHRISTENDOM IS. BESIDES THESE LINES, I FREQUENTLY WRITE ABOUT DEATH, MINE IN PARTICULAR, WHICH IS AN ISSUE
THAT I FEEL MUCH CLOSE TO.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'X PUS'?
"X" MEANS "UNKNOW" WHILE "PUS" MEANS "INFECTION".
UNKNOW INFECTION = CHRISTIANITY,
DESPITE BEING THE WORST CANCER AND AFTER ALL THE CRIME COMMITTED (IN THE PAST AND PRESENT),
FOR MOST PEOPLE, EVEN TODAY IN 2015/2016 IT IS A POSITIVE THING; IS THE "PATH",
SO HERE'S WHY: XPUS = UNKNOW INFECTION = CHRISTIANITY.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
BEING OURSELVES A CLOSELY NEWBORN BAND, OUR ATTENTION AND TIME AS WELL HAVE BEEN FOCUSED UPON THE COMPOSITION OF THE DEBUT ALBUM AND WE'VE HAD VERY
FEW GIGS. OF COURSE WE'LL BE CONCENTRATING OUR NEXT EFFORTS ON THAT, WE''RE JUST PLANNING OUR NEXT MOVES...AND IF THINGS GO IN THE RIGHT WAY WE'LL
HAVE SOME GREAT FUN!
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
WE'RE PLANNING BOTH THINGS.
7.Most of the band members have a history that goes back to the 90's, do you feel extreme metal has changed quite a bit since the second wave era?
ABSOLUTELY THINGS WORSENED. YOU SEE, I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO EXTREME METAL SINCE I WAS 15 AND AT THAT TIME THEY POINTED AT YOU AS A FOOL, MUSICALLY
INCOMPETENT. ONE YOU SHOULD HAVE BETTER AVOIDED TALKING TO. AND ALL BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT BLACK AND DEATH METAL STOOD UP WITH THEIR WELL-DISTINCT
PERSONALITY, THEY SMELT OF DEATH AND WERE SELECTIVE GENRES. THEN THE "MASSES" PUT THEIR FILTHY HANDS ON 'EM, AND TURNED 'EM INTO FREAK-LIKE STUFF
FILLED WITH ALL SORTS OF BULLSHIT! WE'RE GLAD THAT PART OF THE UNDERGROUND MOVEMENT HAS BEEN CLEANSING ITSELF THROUGH THESE LAST FEW YEARS,
WAR METAL TODAY GATHERS AND EXPRESSES BLACK & DEATH METAL HERITAGE. HOPE IT LASTS.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of war, black and death metal?
TOO EARLY TO STATE THAT, WE'VE HAD SOME FEEDBACKS, ALL OF THEM WERE GOOD BUT WE STILL CANNOT MAKE STATISTICS OUT OF IT."SANCTUS DOMINUS DEUS SABAOTH"
HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED IN ITALY, RUSSIA AND JAPAN UP TIL NOW.IN THE U.S., IN EUROPE AND IN THE REST OF THE WORLD IT WILL BE AVAILABLE VERY SOON.
WE MAKE MUSIC WITH OUR SOULS AND GUTS, I THINK THAT THOUSE WHO'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND WILL UNDERSTAND. FUCK THE REST.
9.Are any of the band members involved with any other bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening
ALL THAT HAS TO DO WITH TRUE THRASH, DEATH, BLACK AND WAR METAL HAS INFLUENCED ME AND STILL DOES. NO, NO OTHER GENRE, I AM NOT
INTERESTED IN OTHER MUSICAL GENRES. 7 ALBUM OUT OF 10 WERE RELEASED IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE '90S. OF COURSE I APPRECIATE AND FAN YOUNGER BANDS LIKE:
ARCHGOAT, BLACK WITCHERY, MORBOSIDAD, GRAVE DESECRATOR, VON, PSEUDOGOD, INQUISITION, MGLA ETC...
10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
OUR GOAL IS TO PLAY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, BOTH LIVE AND IN THE STUDIO. I'VE ALREADY FINISHED THE ARTWORK FOR THE SECON AND THE THIRD CD AND WE'VE WRITTEN
OVER THE HALF OF OUR SECOND ALBUM. I DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'RE HEADING TO, MY FEET ARE ROOTED IN THE GROUND AND I ONLY LIVE IN THE PRESENT. WE'LL FOLLOW
THE PATH WE TRACED WITH OUR FIRST WORK.
11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
AS I SAID BEFORE, ALL THOSE BANDS CAPABLE OF CREATING TRUE THRASH, DEATH, BLACK AND WAR METAL.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
TO ALL THE TRUE FANS OF TRUE EXTREME METAL I SAY "GIVE US A CHANCE, I'M SURE YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
TO ALL THE OTHERS, AS I ALWAYS SAY, WE DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU.
THANKS TO YOU FOR THIS INTERVIEW, HORNS UP.
SEE YOU IN HELL!
