We have a chat with American death metal band Crypitus about their new album Ill World (That's What You Get).
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM/ PROJECT?
Pete: Our new/first album is called Ill World (That’s What You Get) and it’s being released on the 21st of September. We recorded it at a studio in Plattsburgh, New York with BluVudu Productions.
Zach: Our new album is called "I'll World (That's What You Get)" It has 6 songs with face melting deliciousness and a side of pie. It's being released 9/21 so check it out.
Joe: Ill World (That's What You Get) is our new album that we will release 9/21.
Doug: The album will be released on our webstore, CDbaby, ITunes, Spotify, Pandora and more!
WHAT INSPIRED ANY CENTRAL THEMES ON THE ALBUM?
Pete: The title reflects some of the ideas in the songs about the world turning to shit due to humans screwing it up.
Zach: The state of the sickly planet we inhabit.
Joe: The world is sick and needs medicine.
Doug: “Ill World (That’s What You Get)” is intended to demonstrate the state of the world today, natural chaos, global war & mental dissonance.
HOW LONG DID YOU SPEND RECORDING?
Pete: We did two or three weekend sessions of recording and several months of mixing and mastering.
Zach: We spent a few days recording in total.
Doug: We probably did two weekend sessions as a band and one more time alone. It really was a decent set up, John at Bluvudu has a whole band house set up for the bands to get cozy and crash out to ease on the traveling.
HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT THE SONGWRITING PROCESS?
Pete: We’ll take a riff or two and jam to them until it resembles a song. Then we’ll fine tune it adding little parts here and there to make it interesting.
Zach: I just kinda throw some drums on the riffs these dudes put together. We really don't have an organized method of songwriting.
Joe: I just go with the flow.
Doug: Songwriting for us has always been a natural organic process.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE TRACK FROM THE ALBUM?
