Piercing Immortality Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD. What type of artist are you?
PI. A well-oiled machine
PD. Tell us the brief history of yourself.
PI. I first got into music when I was about 10-11 years old I was into the bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Motley Crue stuff like that. I then later got into more heavier stuff like Death, Carcass, Dissection things of that nature. And those were the type of bands that shaped the sound of the what we are doing now.
PD. Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
Bands like Dissection, Death, Carcass, At the Gates, but I also like jazz players like John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Christian stuff like that. I try to keep an open mind when to comes to music and just listening in general.
PD. What are your dreams and goals?
PI. To keep doing what I am doing and to continue to write and record and put out good music for people to enjoy. To also be able to tour in the future and to visit other countries and play in front of as many people as possible because there is no better feeling in the world.
PD. Who writes your songs, what are they about?
PI. When I wrote the EP, it was me that had come up with the music and the lyrics but now that there is a full line up we will be working together to come up with riffs and lyrics. The lyrics deal with humanity and mostly just people in general.
PD. How do you promote your band and shows?
PI. Through Facebook and other social media as well as going out to local shows and telling people about it.
PD. What do you think about downloading music online?
PI. There are always going to be good and bad behind it, but I think however you go about supporting the artist is entirely up to you as an individual.
PD. What song do you wish you’d written and why?
PI. Heartwork by Carcass because it was both the heaviest and most melodic song that I had heard at that time.
PD. What are some of your pet peeves?
PI. People that say they are going to do something and they don’t and lack of communication.
PD. What is your proudest moment in music?
PI. There are a couple the last band that I was in got to open for Suffocation that was a good feeling to me because it was a band that I had grown up listening to. And the other one was when I got back the final mixes and masters of the new EP and the way that it sounded blew me away because it was the final realization of all my hard work had finally paid off.
PD. So what are you working on at the moment?
PI. We are currently working on writing some songs for our full length to be released by mid to late next year. We are also working on trying to get a music video made for one of the songs on the EP that we have out now.
PD. Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
PI. We are working on getting on to a show with Mobile Deathcamp and you should be there because it is Todd Evans the former bass player in GWAR what better reason is there than that?
