Interview with Voracious Scourge done by Patrick posted on 2-16-18


Interview with Voracious Scourge done by Patrick

1.Hello how are things going with you this week? Please introduce yourself to the readers?


Hails Metal brothers and sisters, this is Jason main song writer and founder of Voracious Scourge. Things are going great! Just got back from watching the Mighty Exhorder (Louisiana Thrash Legends) destroy a venue in New Orleans.

 
For anyone who hasn’t heard of Voracious Scourge here’s a brief description of who we are.


Voracious Scourge is an old school brutal Death Metal Project which consists of Me (Jason Mcintyre) guitar player of Louisiana death metal band “Suture”, Mike Smith on drums who is a former member of the brutal death metal gods “Suffocation”, Adrie Kloosterwaard on vocals of the mighty Dutch death metal masters “Sinister”, and Lance Strickland also of Suture on bass.


2.When did you first get the idea to start this band? And who would you say are Voracious Scourge biggest influences?


I came up with the Idea for the project early in 2017. After a few email conversations, Mike and Adrie jumped on board, then Lance joined about month later after I had everything in place to start recording the EP.

Some of my biggest influences are of course the late 80’s and early 90’s death metal and thrash bands like Suffocation, Sinister, Deicide, Death, Pestilence, Entombed, Exhorder, Paradise Lost, Entombed and so on.


3.Our Demise is Voracious Scourge debut Mcd which is being released through Immortal Souls Prod. how did you and the band come in contact with this label?


Adrie has been friends with Juro (ISP label owner) for many years. He told him about the project and Juro was immediately interested. He contacted me about signing Voracious Scourge to ISP. So he and I worked out a deal we both benefited from. Immortal Souls has been great to us so far. He and I have a good business relationship.

 


4.Does the whole band work on writing the music or does one member write everything? How long does it usually take to write one song?


I write all the material including lyrics. Send out rough demos and everyone puts their own unique twist on it. As far as how long a song takes, I never put a time limit on creating a song. Some come pretty quick while others take weeks to finish. I never rush anything. The song Oracle of Repugnance took 2 days to write, while Harbinger of our own Demise took 2 weeks. It’s funny because you would think it would be the other way around considering the 2 songs themselves.

5.Besides the debut Mcd does the band have any other merchandise available forth readers to buy? If yes what is available and where can the readers buy it?


At the moment Immortal souls are offering Cds, and T-shirts. But its my understanding Vinyl versions and Cassettes will be available in the very near future. Please visit immortalsouls.sk

6.Has Voracious Scourge played live yet? If yes what have been some of the bands most memorable shows?

No, we all live worlds away from each other. A live show is not probable but it’s also not impossible, it would just need the right motivation behind it. Motivation meaning funding.


7.Has the band started working on new music for the next release? Will it be a Mcd or would you like to work towards a full length?


Yes, I have started working on new material. The next release will be a full length. I am hoping we can be finished recording it later this year for a 2019 release. But who knows, if things fall into place quickly, maybe it might even be sooner. Like a late 2018 release. I definitely do not want to be a band that takes 2 years to put out releases. Especially since we are not built for touring.


8. I believe all the members of the band have been active in the metal underground since the mid 90's what is it that has kept you doing this for so long?


Sorry for such a short answer but, The love and passion for creating extreme music fuels me, that’s it.

9.How would you say the underground scene has changed or evolved since the 90's to present day?


Other than the fact the scene is still thriving and healthy with tons of great and unique bands. I can say the “real quality” bands from back in the day, mainly the forefathers, have withstood the test of time. While all the pretenders and bandwagon bands (and fans for that fact) have fallen off the map.

10.When you need to take a break from writing music or band business what do you like to do in your free time?


Spend time with my family. That’s the most important thing to me in life next to Voracious Scourge.

11.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final comments for the readers?


Thank you very much Patrick for the interview, I really appreciate it. I am also very humbled by the show of love and support we have been receiving so far regarding our new Ep "Our Demise". Please Visit Immortal Souls Productions, they put a lot of their faith, hard work and support into us by releasing our ep. Stop by our Facebook page give us a like, a share, or send us a message letting us know if you liked the ep. Once again Thank you and stay brutal My friends!
