xtreem music is now selling a new cd re-release of Nespithe. Here's the description
Ultimate re-issue of the ultra-mega-legendary album from '93 by these finnish masters of ultra-guttural, technical and heavy Death Metal. Remastered for the very first time ever, comes with full coloured 12-pages booklet with improved layout design, exclusive interview and liner notes. Also includes their "Four Instructive Tales... of Decomposition" Demo '91 as bonus. An essential timeless classic!!
Can you summarise a normal day in the life of Antti?
Yeah: Shit. It's all up to me, but I don't just fix it.
Do you have a favourite song from Nespithe?
One of these, but I cannot decide which one:
- When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water
- The Sixteenth Six-Tooth Son of Fourteen Four-Regional Dimensions (Still Unnamed)
- The Echo (Replacement)
- The Planet that Once Used to Absorb Flesh in Order to Achieve Divinity and Immortality (Suffocated to the Flesh that it Desired...)
Antti im trying to learn The Echo on bass! do i just follow your part or does the bass do somthing else? also why is it that you don't want to realese any more tab? is it a personal thing (one that does not need to be reavealed) or is it that you dont have them ready?
I have nothing against releasing the tabs. I will try to, but that's not in the top of my priority list, as it's not really fun to do.
The bass in The Echo mostly follows the lines of rhythm guitars, although there are parts with bass-only lines. When I go ahead with tabbing, I will add the bass tabs to that song first.
What were the main musical influences you had in Demilich?
I apologise, I have done it wrong again. It is isorrcknchuthe. I am certain I have gotten it right this time.
No, you got it right the second time.
The main influences when Demilich was born were bands like Bolt Thrower, Pestilence, Entombed etc. Later I got more influence (whatsoever) from newer Pestilence, Atheist, Morbid Angel, Voivod and likes.
Hey I was wondering does the bassist (since you had 3 and I can`t figure out which one it was) on nespinthe use a 5 or a 6 string bass? and will you be releasing any bass tabs?
He used a normal 4 string bass. We just tuned low.
I will release all tabs some day, at least if I live to do it.
C++ and groupies?
PHP gets chicks wild.
It must be extremely hard working in the record store with all the groupies and fans trying to bask in your musical presence. I don't know how you do it.
To do with my previous post, I apologise for Risnorckchuthe. I made a slight error with it. What I meant was isorrcknchuthe.
Fortunately I work at home now. My personal bodyguard gets to block them on the door downstairs.
Sorry, I just had to provoke you on the Churck Snori case.
How did you choose the album picture for Nespithe?
Why did you name the album Nespithe? I know it means the spine, but is it symbolic for something or did you think it was a cool album title? Why not name it Hmacstothe or (dare I say it?) Risnorckchuthe?
To be honest, I don't remember the idea behind using The Spine as the name of the album. There was one but I've forgotten it. So, it wasn't picked up randomly. The Stomach didn't just fit in, and your suggestion of using The Churck Snori is rather ridiculous.
The cover art was linked to the spine idea. I had a different kind of image in my head when I explained it to the painter, so it didn't come out as I expected it to be. Still, I'm happy about the original cover art.
Do you have a day job or night job? I assume death metal doesn't make much money and I'm curious if you have a job of some sort.
We just got our first money from Nespithe sales, due to Xtreem sending us the newly printed LPs and me selling them to my friends, so it's safe to say we haven't made much money. I have a day job working as a programmer for a Finnish record store chain. It would be perfect to make a living with composing music, but that's a faint dream.
