Interview with Flesh of the Earth!

Genre(s): Death Metal
Location: Melbourne, Australia
PSAB: Why was “Flesh of the Earth” chosen for your band name?
FOTE: Latham [Our
vocalist/lyricist] came up with the name Flesh of the Earth as a song
title first. He’d done of a lot of writing prior to Nature’s Reign and
the term Flesh of the Earth was something He always liked, and it
certainly fit our lyrical theme, so we decided to use it.
PSAB: You haven’t released an album since “Nature’s Reign” which came out in 2013. When can we expect a new album or EP from you?
FOTE: We
do plan on making another E.P. It’s hard to say when It will be out as
the main limiting factor is money. Nature’s Reign was received better
than we could have hoped, making us even more excited to create a follow
up. The writing for the second EP is nearing completion, and we’d like
to start recording as soon as possible.
PSAB: What are your hobbies outside of creating music?
FOTE: Playing
video games, table top and card games has always been our biggest
enjoyments outside of music. We also love stuff like Marvel, Star Wars a
shitload. All of us that are currently studying full time are really
enjoying our respective fields (Writing, Animal technology and Physics).
Obviously there are other more individual things that only one of us
like (at least significantly more so than the others), Like car
modifications and basketball and stuff like that.
PSAB: What’s the local scene like in your area?
FOTE: While
our local scene might seem weak compared to an American or European
scene, everyone now and we get to play with some amazing local bands you
could not find anywhere but here. It’s the people that make the scene
down here.
PSAB: What are some of the bands you listened to growing up? Do those bands play an influence on your music?
FOTE: We
all had somewhat similar tastes in music as we were growing up,
predominantly classic rock/metal bands that our parents listened to, for
example Lost Horizon, Rhapsody, Metallica, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash,
AC/DC, Queen, Meatloaf, Jimmy Barnes, Midnight Oil, van Halen, plus a
ton more. We all still love these bands and still listen to them to this
day, but we also listen to a much more diverse array of genres now
obviously including a heap more extreme metal, along with some other
less predictable stuff like rap and electronic. Although we love the
bands we grew up on, we don’t draw a lot of influence from them,
relative to how much we draw from the bands that we more recently are in
to.
PSAB: Any shout outs to give to the readers?
FOTE: Yes, first and
foremost Ovid’s Withering are the best band ever. Check them out if you
haven’t already. We also love and highly recommend Voyager from Perth
here in Australia, amazing band. And a big thanks to our friends, fans
and family for making this so much fun, we’d struggle to do it without
them. individually to our friend Milli Ransom of Pearl Magazine, she is
doing amazing work for the local scene and Shaunda ‘Skitty’ Burkhalter
for being awesome over in America. Also, big thanks to you PSAB!
