How is life going on nowadays in NY? Is there enough hellish mood
around you for creating sick music?
Life in NY is crazy and cold these days and with all the insanity it
for sure create's a great evil hellish mood for writing crushing Death Metal.
How was the story of writing songs ,the process of recording songs and
also production of album called Gates of Hell?
We started writing the music for the Gates of Hell around 2 years ago
what we do is get together and jam and also come up with stuff on our own and
work the song's out as for the production i(Rich hervey) handel all the
recording for the band and we recorded it at my studio "the Doom Cave". Over the
last 10 years i have really got into recording and we like haveing the final
sound in our hand's.
You have been around since the late 90s and Day of Doom is literally a
band of unholy and sick death metal,but on the contrary,it is in a little bit
underrated situation,at least for me,what do you think that reasons of being
underrated ?Or at least,do you think you are underrated?
Thank you for saying that and it mean's alot to us as for if we feel
underrated i must say the truth is at time's we do but we don't let that and
never will let that stop us at our goal to put out crushing Death Metal.As for
why we have no clue.
What is the story of song titled Slaughter of the Lamb ?What are
your lyrical concepts and titles in this album?Until now,what kind of lyrical
themes you wrote and talked about?
Slaguher of the lamb is about a demon who gard's the gates of hell and
when a person's soul enters hell they realize that hell is for real.Our lyrical
concept's have been about the holy hoax and all it's sheep that follow.We will
go a bit another way with our next release "Descent of Humanity" alot of the
lyrics will be about the downfall of mankind.
How was your contract happened with Czech music label,Lavadome?Are you
happy about working with an european label?Before that contract,what labels you
We were contacted by Jan of Lavadome and he told us he had intrest in
us for Lavadome and once we talked to him it was a no brainer.We couldnt be more
happy with Lavadome.Jan and Lavadome are so great and supportive of us and Death
Metal in general.We have heard horror storys from other band's and we have never
had an issue with Lavadome it's a total supportive team effort and this is the
first label we have been on all our other stuff has been put out by us but we
see a long future with Lavadome.
Gates of Hell was released as an E.P at first but later Lavadome
released it as a full lenght version.What is the story of it?
Well the gates wasnt released as a E.P we just put out 4 songs to see
if a label was interested in putting out the full release and once we got on
Lavadome the full release was put out.
What do you think about religions?Do you respect any of them?Also any
words and thoughts you have for the lunatics of islam and other organized
We have only one thought and that its all lies we dont disrespect
anyone if you want to believe in lie's its your life do what you must as for all
the lunatics of organized religions we say this....enter our homes and prepair
to get a hole put in your head and meet your so called god.
You had worked with Dough Cerrito in your first album called Night of
Horror,and he played in some songs,what is the story behind it?
Yes Doug recorded all but drums on "Night of Horror' and played 4 solos
on it.We have known Doug and all of Suffocation for many many many years.Dougs
brother and i hung out all the time and they jamed at his house so when the time
came to do Night of Horror i asked him if he would do it and he said yes and he
did some crazy solos and a great job with the recording.It was also the last
thing Doug played on so it was an honor for us to have him on it.
In daily life,what things do you do except sicko death metal music?
We would just like to see it get more respect.It seems in the NY area
and now days and in alot of other places in the states its all about tribute
bands and we think the promoters and club owners should respect and push for
more original music over all not just Death Metal but as for what we expect well
we just expect people to put out the most evil brutal crushing music they can.
What about New York death metal community?Is it strong and closed scene
as it was past?
The Death Metal community is tight in NY for sure to bad i cant say
that for the other styles of music in NY.For us we are friends with tons of
bands and respect them to the fullest.Coming from Long Island we have been lucky
to be around bands like Suffocation,Pyrexia and Internal Bleeding and we look at
them a friends and when we do shows its like being at a family party
Your song structures are really chaotic and atonal in some ways.Is it a
natural born with your guitar and drum styles or you have focused on it
We have been playing together for many years and it comes very natural
to us.Before we jam we will improv for about 20 mins and friends who will down
and say when did you write that?and we say just now lol.When we write new music
we will do demos and go over the songs and some stuff will change like how long
to do a riff or maybe a diffrent drum fill but it comes very easy to us.
I think that your last album is really promosing and cool and a must have
album for death metal maniacs .What are your future plans as a band from now on?
Thanks again for the kind words and we think it is aswell lol as for
whats coming up well as we speak we are rerecording our 2nd release "Slaves to
Insainty" and it will have an unreleased track on it that is so sick.Over all
the production on it will blow the old one away.Sometime this year "Slaves to
Insainty" and "Night of Horror" will both be rereleased on Lavadome.They will
both be released on one cd.We know times are rough for people so us and Lavadome
wanted to hook all you freaks up.After i mix slaves we go back to the studio to
keep writing for our next new full release "Descent of Humanity" so far we have
4 songs and tons of ideas and we dont have a release date for that but "Descent
of Humanity" will also be released on Lavadome and of course we will be crushing
live all summer.
Can you advise some cool albums and bands you bought and support in 2014
Sure can if you dont have the Human Remains you should go get the
rerelease thats coming out.the new rerelease of all the Damonacy stuff is a must
have,i have been really into the new Hideous Divinity its so sick and they do a
brutal Ripping Corpse cover and i have been into the new Nero Di Marte.
My words are done here,brother.I thank you personally for your honest
and cool answers.Please tell us your words to fans and Extreminal readers
Thanks again for the support it means so mush to us and to all the
fan's we will never let you down.We will always bring it fast, sick and brutal
and if you like the Gates of Hell just wait to you hear "Descent of Humanity"
Stay evil you freak's
