Foetal Juice

 

Q

Please introduce your band, the current line-up and what each of you does in the band.

A

Hi, we are a 4 piece death metal band from Bury.
Rob - Drums
Ben - Bass
Ryan - Guitar
Sam - Vocals

Q

How would you describe the bandís sound?

A

A mixture of old school death metal, grind, thrash and punk.

Q

How do you approach your song writing and what is your lyrical theme/content

A

The song writing process varies but basically Ry comes up with most of the riffs. Lyrical content is dark, disturbing and often just toilet humour.

Q

Who gets involved with writing of lyrics and melody? Is it down to specific individuals or a collaborative process?

A

Sam comes up with most of the lyrics but we've all chipped in here and there on lyrics and song titles.

Q

How often do you practice and have you any other gigs lined up?

A

We usually jam 2-3 times a week.
4th May Grand Central
11th May  ????? (Liverpool)
25th June Royal Park Cellars (Leeds)
The venue for the Liverpool gig had a fire and there's been a change of venue and I'm not sure where to.

Q

What has been your best gig so far, and why is it so memorable?
A They seem to get better and better so I'm not sure about our best gig. The most memorable one for me (Ben) would definitely be playing in Burnley about 4 years ago when we decided it'd be funny for Sam to run round drenching himself in fake blood and wielding a pigs leg. We didn't do that again, and they didn't ask us to come back to Burnley either!

Q

What was the last song you listened to, either on the radio, your mp3 player, at a gig...? 

A

The Atrocity Exhibit - Assassination Template.

Q

What do you think of the North West metal scene right now?

A

It's quite apathetic but when people do show up you see that it is actually quite strong.

Q

What do you consider are the benefits of initiatives like Metal 2 The Masses Battle 4 Bloodstock?

A

It gives the chance for great bands that don't have as much exposure as others to play alongside those who do and that's a good way to get noticed.

Q

What made you get involved with M2TM?

A

Basically we just got talking to Chris Appleton in the Grand Central who said he could put us on.

Q

Have you ever been to Bloodstock, and what do you think of the festival?

A

Me and Sam have been to BOA the past two years with a load of friends and we are going back this year. That gives you a good idea of what we think.

Q

Whatís next for the band?

A

We're three quarters of the way through recording our demo and our full length album. We should have it finished for the summer.
