A few questions - INFECTED OMNIPOTENCE
Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.?
Infected Omnipotence came into existence as an idea from Corpse, as he was planning on having a band that represented Death Metal’s true feelings, which in return would work on filling an empty space existing in the local metal scene.
The band’s moniker represents the level of evil that’s innate in human beings, taking it a step further and beyond, towards a supposed omnipotence, which stands as infected by evil, being as corrupted and decomposed.
Late August 2012 the band releases its first EP "Global Infection" containing four songs, including a cover of Vader. The album received good response from the national audience, as well as several reviews pages and international zines.
Currently the lyrics are more focused on topics such as conspiracy theory, manipulation from higher echelons of power and forced religious indoctrination.
In May 2014 they released the single Humanbotic Paradox, which shows the new musical trend of the band, running a more versatile, current and strong shades of brutal death death.
After several changes to the Abortion (vocals) and Clandestine (Guitar & bass) line up are left alone, however they may launch the EP Spawning a Dystopian Breed, with the help of Furious Blaster on drums, who in late 2015 was returned the band.
Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering?
Spawning a Dystopian Breed was recorded at BlastBeats Studio (Dominican Republic), Eric Cruz was in charge. It was a long process that took more than a year, we loss two members on it, but finally we released on november.
How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)?
Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with?
Abortion is the main writer, in the Spawning a Dystopian Breed wrote three songs, while Clandestine wrote one.
Who created the logo of the band, and who took care of the graphics and the website? What about you and social networks? Do you consider these things important?
The logo, the cover art and all the graphic line by Erick Meran (Abortion).
For an independent band like us, social networks are very useful, because it is our main way of communicating with fans outside our country. Therefore we give special care.
Which label did you choose for releasing your album and why this label? Are you satisfied by how your label represents you and takés care about you?
"Global Infection" our first EP was released by VM Records, a small label releases focused on extreme metal in Dominican Republic. With the new production aim to achieve something bigger, especially that you can distribute the album worldwide satisfactorily.
Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration?
We admire a lot of old bands that have managed to endure over the years making good music, as is the case for example of Suffocation and Deeds of Flesh. Of the more contemporary bands Cattle Decapitation certainly it is the one that blown our minds.
Inspiration comes hand in hand with the way society is manipulated from the different levels of power: governments, religions, corporations, etc. It is something we see every day and that we capture in our lyrics with a dark and futuristic touch.
Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response?
Obviously we send our material to a small group of major labels brutal death, we had favorable opinions, but we have not reached any agreement.
How many gigs have you played? Which type of gigs do you prefer, whether it's (clubs or festivals) and which of your performances would you consider as the best?
When the band had complete line up averaged 3-4 concerts per year, as it has never interested us to keep playing live all the time. We played only in our country. Here concerts tend to be a small number of people, between 100 and 200 people. I think the smaller shows are most enjoyed.
What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band?
Right now we are completing our lineup to return to play live and also promote the new album, at the moment is the most important and what we're focused.
How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?
