Phylogeny Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the project?
1: Our project is a studio/home project. We both study in different cities, we are 22 and 23 years old, so we don't have any source of income yet. We do our music just for the love of it. We had a grind band in the past but our drummer had to left, so we decided to make this little project on our own. we've been working for a year

2.How would you describe your musical sound?
2: our musical sound is a mix of influences, completely. From old school death metal to melodic stuff. We are also fanatics of black metal, specially bands like Windir or Dissection, just to mention any. We like contrast in our music, we seek to surprise those who hear our music, without stepping out of a death metal style, that is the unifier element thru all the mix we put in there.

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
3: we are still exploring with our lyrics. We plan to create our own Lore, based on our artwork. as an introduction, the pyramid that you see in the back came to that world with a mission, to grab all the alien race from that planet and take them to other places, new and forbidden for them. We are still developing this.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Phylogeny'?
4: Theres not much inspiration in that. We just looked for a short name that hasnt been taken yet, and that sound death metal enough. We know that its related to evolution of microorganisms, we plan to somehow use this concept in our lyrics as well.

5.Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you planning on expanding the line up in the future or do you chose to remain a duo?
5: We would love to have a drummer that can play what we program, or something close to that. Unf, that probably won't happen, but if any good drummer is interested on our project, we are open to accept him if he is good enough, and love death/black music.

6.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
6: No.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?
7: It has been good so far. We are still expanding, and that takes time

8.Are the band members involved with any other musical project?
8. Polo has a solo project called polis south. Its kind of an electronic/indie music style

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
9: No one could guess that...

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
10: too many bands and influences. tech death bands like spawn of possession or necrophagist, Black bands like dissection or even inmortal, Slam bands...I do love melodic stuff a lot ( Rod ), I love wintersun, Kalmah , and bands like that. So as you can see, we dont have a limit in our tastes.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
11: Videogames, movies, Law, animals...

12.before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
12: Spread the word of our legend. We need more people to hear us!!
Thanks for the interview. It's been written by Rod.
