A few questions – interview with death metal band from Russia - WOMBRIPPER. 

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play , etc.? 

Hi! Thanks for the shown interest in us! We are the Wombripper from Russia! We play old school death metal Swedish way like Vomitory, Demonical, Dismember, Entombed, Nirvana 2002. AV started band in 2012 and after several changes the lineup looks like: Dan - guitar, vocal, Ivan - guitar, Konstantin - bass, AV - drums. The main goal from the very beginning was what you hear on our releases - uncompromising, straightforward death metal with HM-2 a sound! 


Where and under what conditions were you recording the new album? Who was in charge of sound, production and mastering? 

The album was recorded in Hiboll Studio, in St. Petersburg, Konstantin Dolganov known for his bands Internal Damage, Chamber of Torture etc. was responsible for a sound. He did all soundwork. Pleases that we did it together, and everything was made all in a week! Great time! 

How many copies were released and which medium was used for this new edition (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette)? 

The album was released not so long ago, and is available in the digital version on Bandcamp and on CD (500 copies, it is released by Grotesque Sounds and Ritual Productions). Shortly there will be also tapes from NO BREAD! records. Our first demo was released to CD, Split with Torn Apart on tapes, self-released. EP Infected Tomb is still available in digital, but we expect release in physical format. 


Who is the author of the lyrics and how were they created and about what do the lyrics deal with? 

Lyrics, as well as the most part of music was written by Dan. Only the Horned knows what’s on his mind. He writes about devil, a gloom, pain and decomposition... Typical death metal lyrics after all, hahaha! 

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? 

Logo was made by A.Frolov (aka Capricorn Art), the guy well known in a brutal underground. Cover artists are generally unknown to the majority, for example on an album we used an art of the artist who doesn't have any relation to metal culture. An exception - Recrean Azaza, made an art for EP Infected Tomb. Regarding social networks - silly not to use such thing, convenient for communication. All of us are on Facebook, and are always ready to communicate. 

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? 

The album released by Grotesque Sounds and Ritual Productions. We are familiar with Alexey and when he offered us to release an album at his label, we accepted his offer quickly. Alexey is the reliable, honest guy, to work with him for us is very comfortable. 


Which bands do you idolise and where do you get your inspiration? 

About inspiring bands and musicians it is possible to talk endlessly! We love a lot of different music, from an abstract noise and classics, to a black and a grindcore. And it is reflected in band‘s music. By the way, the Czech grind-scene is very cool, we love it! 

Did you send your record to some Labels - which are the labels? How was the response? 

We sent an album and EP to big number of different labels, but some didn't like a vocal on an album, or a sound of a snare drum on EP, or they had no space in their release plans. But the main thing - we receive good comments from listeners, and it motivates us to develop the idea of extreme OSDM further. 


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? 

About 50 gigs played, haha. Especially cool were in a lineup with European death monsters - Undergang, Fleshcrawl and Nominon! We play in clubs, there are practically no thematic open airs in our country. it is difficult to mark out some concert, all of them are interesting, there is a lot of good people 

What about your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve with the band? 

To do what we want to do and never stop, thats the goals.

How and where can your fans contact you? Can you provide some contact information?
