Interview with Corprophemia!

PSAB: What is the whole idea behind Abhorrogenesis? The artwork is killer too; does that play a role with the lyrics or anything?

Matt – When I sat down to start writing the lyrics for the album I really dug into a lot of literature, from the works of H.P. Lovecraft to Edgar Allan Poe and William Hope Hodgeson to Algernon Blackwood. The word itself just kind of popped into my head. Abhorrent and Genesis became Abhorrogenesis, the beginning of the repulsive, repugnant, disgusting and horrid.

The artwork concept idea came to me at the same time as the title, and it is based on the song Hour of the Witch from the album.

2. PSAB: Who does the artwork? It’s too good to not ask, really.

Matt – The art work was done by our good friend Tony Koehl. We have worked with him in the past for our first full length release Arrived In Pieces. If you dog our artwork you should check out the rest of Tony’s work at his website www.sketchthesoul.com or on his Facebook at www.facebook.com/tonykoehl.

3. PSAB: Canada has a bunch of great metal bands in different genres, including Corprophemia. Who are your favorite Canada natives?

Jason – Canada is definitely ripe with talented bands, for me, Cryptopsy , Monster Voodoo machine , Soulstorm , Woods of Ypres, Ataxia the list goes on …

Mat – Cryptopsy, Killitorus, Annihilator, Insurrection, Erimha, the Apex, Corrupt Leaders, I could go on but those are the first ones I think of.

Frank – Orchidectomy, Blood of Christ, Beyond Creation, Archspire, Gravitational Distortion, and Deformatory.

Matt – Deformatory, Gravitational Distortion, Human Compost, Vile Driver, Ruptured Birth, Fumigation, Despised Icon, Neuraxis, Beneath the Massacre, Ion Dissonance, this list could be huge.
4. PSAB: Is a North American tour likely to happen?

Matt – We will most definitely be hitting the road for a few weeks of shows this summer, we are in the process of booking some good runs, so keep an eye on our Facebook page to stay up to date on what we are doing.

5. PSAB: As a band still in the underground scene, what are your thoughts on crowd funding albums or other things geared towards a band’s music?

Matt – I mean we personally haven’t used crowd funding as a band, but I think anything you can do in the current music industry to help you connect with fans and make them feel like they are a part of your music can never be a bad thing. The music industry has changed dramatically in the past 20 years, and with album sales down and bands relying on tour revenue more than ever crowd funding is a great way to help get your album to the people who want to hear it most.

6. PSAB: I’ve met people, who are big fans of death metal and its sub-genres, who dislike ‘core genres. As a brutal death band, what do you think about the different core genres?

Matt – Honestly we love the core genres. Before Frank and I restarted Corprophemia we were in a Deathcore project called Calculate. I mean core gets a lot of flack, and I think it’s mostly because the kids who are just getting into extreme metal gravitate toward it because it’s catchy, and it’s heavy, and it’s fun to dance to something with groove.

7. PSAB: Do you have anything else to say?

Frank – We would just like to thank all the fans who keep pushing us to play, thanks to Pig Squeals and Breakdowns and Andriana for taking the time out for this interview, and come check us out at a venue near you and say hi.


Keep it Brutal!
