Supuration Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?
Ok, we're now into the promotion of the last  SUPURATION album «CU3E» wich will be out on the 25 th of february on listenable records. We're rehearsing for the future gigs. We signed very quickly with listenable rcds and that's a good thing, i mean, we are all into this record, that's exciting...

> 2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it
> differs from previous releases?
I must say that's it's a little bit different, meanwhile the album «THE CUBE» (1993) and «INCUBATION» (2003) . Meanwhile we recorded several albums of SPHERICAL UNIT PROVIDED (S.U.P), so, with the experience, we've have not the same way of working in a studio. We're used to working alone from the recording to the mastering, for «CU3E» we worked with Dan Swanö for the mastering, that was a great idea, in a way, he gave us a new sound for the final result. We hope working with him in the future.

> 3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with
> the new release?
«CU3E» is the end of a trilogy we started in 1993  with «THE CUBE» album, in 2003 we recorded «INCUBATION» which is a prequel of «THE CUBE» this story is dealing with the re incarnation of a tormented soul throughout a metaphysical journey, in different places, strange places...really enigmatic and futurist, as far as «CU3E» is concerned the scene takes place in outer space with machines, robots and a high technology all around and a  young reincarnated soul is the main character of this third chapter. Each album of SUPURATION is linked to the other.

> 4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
During the 90's, with SUPURATION we were into grind core, death grind style, we chose the band's name by listening to the first CARCASS album, there was a song called «suppuration» so we decided to call the band «SUPURATION» with only one «P» because , at that time a polish grind core band was called «suppuration».

> 5. The band has been around for more than 20 years, what is it that keeps
> the band going after all these years?
We are like brothers first of all, we started when were were quite young guys, i was 13 for example...after the album «THE CUBE» and the mini cd «STILL IN THE SPHERE» in 1994, we decided to change SUPURATION into S.U.P (SPHERICAL UNIT PROVIDED) , a darker style, less death metal, atmospheric music, we recorded several albums like ANOMALY (95), TRANSFER (96), ROOM SEVEN (97), CHRONOPHOBIA (99), ANOMALY 2000 (2000 complete story version), ANGELUS (2002), SUPURATION'S INCUBATION (2003), 9092 cd/dvd from SUPURATION's archives (2004), IMAGO (2005) and HEGEMONY (2007). We are into music all the time, it's our passion, that's keep us togeteher since the very beginning.

> 6. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how
> would you describe your stage performance?
Some great festivals like the hellfest, dour (bel), several good gigs in quite good conditions. Our live performances are dark, not too much lights, vidéos, we are quite static on stage, seems like a movie sometimes, that's some people say..

> 7. Do you have any touring plans for the future?
Several gigs in france for the beginning, a few festivals, then we'll see, we've to wait for the album comes out, and our tour manager will keep us informed, informations are available on our website as far as gigs are concerned.

> 8. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of
> death metal?
It's not easy to say, i mean in one hand you have SUPURATION with only three albums throughout 20 years, several eps worlwide, on us, german, european labels and in another hand, you have S.U.P which is totally different, we've to wait for the moment, 'till now we've a really good response from the magazines everywhere, so, that's cool...

> 9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
I guess, we'll record a new S.U.P album for the future.

> 10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music
> and also what are you listening to nowadays?
