Interview by Tarja Virmakari
New York death metal pioneers SUFFOCATION will unleash their new album “…Of The Dark Light” on June 9th via Nuclear Blast Records. Some weeks ago Metal Shock Finland‘s CEO/Founder and President Tarja Virmakari had a chance to interview (for Truemetal.it) the band’s bassist, Derek Boyer, talking about the upcoming album in detail. See below the complete list of topics. To know more about this and much more, please join the conversation below.
0:00 – Welcome to TrueMetal, how are you doing?
1:03 – What can you tell me about the songwriting behind your latest album, “…of the Dark Light”?
4:34 – How would you describe the album lyric-wise?
7:28 – Why did you choose the title of the 6th track as the name for the album? Is it because it reflects the content of the album?
9:54 – I think you should listen an album in its entirety before judging it…
11:47 – Let’s talk about the album’s artwork
13:35 – It’s been 4 years since the last album, you’ve been touring a lot and I imagine you need a lot of concentration for the songwriting, so you can’t do it while on tour…
15:30 – With no italian dates planned, can we hope to see you anytime soon?
17:15 – Will we se Frank Mullen playing with you in the next tour?
19:08 – So we’ll see Kevin Muller sing with you?
21:05 – Have you ever heard some Italian death metal bands? If so which are your favourites?
22:47 – Thanks + message to the fans and TrueMetal readers
