I listen to a lot of metal and wanted to know if you had any suggestions on other bands that you would suggest either older or newer bands thanks antti.
A very hard question, or the answer would be time consuming, at least. Without knowing what you listen, I'd recommend everyone to listen to Crematory's (SWE) Wrath from the Unknown -demo, old Pestilence, Arcturus, and Mikko Alatalo.
Are you mostly into metal or do you listen to other genres of music and if so what bands do you listen to and have inspired you? And what do you think of Pantera? Thanks.
I'm mostly into good music. My listening habits change from time to time, but all in all, I mostly listen to metal.
I don't really like Pantera. They are okay, and talented, but it's not my kind of music.
One last question Antti! How do you do your vocals? Are they pitch-shifted or in any way altered in the studio? And are they inhales or exhales? Ha, done bothering you now, thanks for the information!
No pitch-shifting (apart from one end of a song in The Four Instructive -demo), and not altered apart from occasional echo and delay. All done by exhaling. It's very hard to explain how I do it, but it's easy for me.
What record label did the original pressing of Nespithe. I want an original physical copy for my CD collection. I've seen a lot of Pavement Records versions but is that a reissue or do they distribute for Necropolis Records??? I'm confused. Thanks in advance!
The original was on Necropolis Records, distributed by Pavement. I don't know what the second re-issue looke like, so you may have been seeing those. The images at http://www.anentity.com/demilich/download.php?section=1 show the first, original Nespithe.
Nevermind, sorry. Read a little more and answered my own question. But anyways, great music Antti. You're going to be a big influence on my guitar playing. Thanks!
How do you pronounce Demilich and what exactly does it mean? I just recently started listening to your old band but it's easily one of my favorite death metal records of all time! Cheers from Mississippi (U.S.).
What band have inspired you over the years? And What do you think of the metal scene that has come around this day and age?
Lots of bands, from Iron Maiden, Dio, Metallica and Slayer, to Pestilence, Morbid Angel, Atheist, Napalm Death etc.
I'll explain about my vies on the metal scene on an interview. I'll post the link here when it's online.
first off i wanted to say your music is like nothing i have ever heard it insanly amazing and i was just wondering if you were going to post any more albums and if any merchandise was on the way thanks
We'll put out the demo compilation albums with three new recordings (one song made in 2005, and the other two in 1991). There will be more merchandise then, too.
What's up Antti?
Ozzy or Dio?
Undecided. Both of them are my childhood heroes.
Say, wherever are the lyrics to "TFIT...oD"?
When I find them. I have a few lines that I'm not sure of. Yep, unintelligible vocals.
