Lecherous Nocturne Interview


1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days? Were working hard on tightening the screws on this lineup and progressively evolving the compositions. Trying to bring in many new elements to our song writing while keeping true to our roots that are the formula to Lecherous Nocturne.

2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases? It has a more moderate tempo throughout the album. We still love blazing blast beats but wanted to have a significant identity to this effort in our discography. It is focused more on the emotion of our hatred and disgust for many things without any extra frill.. Right to the point! Ive heard it said "if your not metal your not gonna like this album" and I beleive thats just what the intention was here. Weve always written and performed our songs the way we wanted to without caring what the "reviewers" would say about it but I feel this one is a knife right to the temple! A good "Fuck You" metal album that we feel this genre is in need of. 

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?
Ranging from many subjects that interest us, some historical, some scientific, some emotional. 
4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name? Lust... Its a beautiful and drudging topic that facinates us and inspires us. Lecherous Nocturne is defined as a dark lust filled musical composition. Although many of our songs wander far from the meaning behind the name of the band the basic theme is always similar. Reality without any filters.

5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance? I personally wasnt performing with the band for this one but I believe House of Blues in L.A. on the Cannibal Corpse tour sticks out as a memorable show for the band as all out ruthless and brutal. All shows get the same level of intensity from us whether it be 5 to 5,000 people. The only difference we see is the responses. Were on the stage for the simple and pure reason to play music for the sake of music. We have nothing to gain or lose besides the respect of our peers and metal bretheren.

6. Do you have any touring plans for the future? Not at the moment, we will be out in support of Behold Almighty Doctrine beginning shortly after the release this year but nothing set in stone enough to announce at the present.

7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer material by fans of brutal death metal?
Like I said earlier, the fans of brutal music "get it" and all the poser limp wrist wine sippers that like pretty, polished grammy attempts seem to have something negative to say. All in all were very happy with the level of acceptance in the international spectrum.

8. What is going on with the other musical projects these days?
Everyone in this band has their home studio and enjoys delving into other musical endeavors  but I think the main focus for everyone in Lecherous Nocturne is Lecherous Nocturne.

9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases? Always trying to innovate and progress musically but were wanting to bring back some of the earlier elements and potions that we love. We want every release to have an identity of its own while maintaining the level of intensity we strive for.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays? We love cult bands like 1349, Angel Corpse and Abigail Williams. Our influences span way too far to list them all but you can pretty much sum that one up in one word... Cult...If its real and no frills then chances are we love it. 

11.Outside of music what are some of your interests? Fucking nothing... Sex mabey..

12. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview? Thanks for taking the time to have a talk with us here today!! Best wishes!!! Cult as Fuck!!! www.lecherousnocturne.net
