Please introduce yourself.
We are Peripheral Cortex, a technical death metal band from Berlin. We have been around since 2013 already!
In a city dominated by hipsters and techno we fight for something quite different. We also are however not the typical metal band. By combining different influences from very different styles of music we try to give the music style a different touch. Musicians inspiring us are Morbid Angel, Death, Gorguts, Necrophagist, but also Ligeti and Pat Metheny.
In April we released our first 2-track demo, called `Rupture`, mixed by Mendel Bij De Leij of Aborted fame.
When your band was created?
What the style do you play?
Technical Death Metal
How could you describe your music by several words?
Heavy and technical with a crazy twist.
What is the main theme of your lyrics?
Epic archaic stuff.
What would you like to achieve with the band activity?
Play as many gigs as possible, release awesome stuff. Create some kind of impact. Inspire some people perhaps.
How many gigs you have played so far and maybe you visit another countries with concerts?
We just started out with playing live a few weeks ago. Yes, we would much like to play abroad!
Is there anything very important about your band what SHOULD know fans and labels?
Hmmz not really. They should just check us out 😉
What the formats you would like to see your releases, CD, Vinyl, Tape…? And how do you see future of physical releases?
I am a big CD fan myself, but I see them fading away quickly. I am very old school with my CDs. I do not see much future for them however. The world is changing fast. Streaming is the future. Not even downloading.
The interesting thing is that the concept of making an album (recording +9 songs at once) still remains.
When you will get label deal, would you like to help to the label with promotion from your side, or you want label do all without your help?
Yes of course we would help as much as possible.
What’s your reaction towards negative opinions about your music?
Everybody’s opinion is different. We make very extreme music. Of course many people don’t understand and like our stuff. This is normal.
We know that what we do is what we want to do. If other people don’t like it they should listen to something else.
And last question, how do you like our webzine, do you have some remarks towards its look or functionality?
I would suggest to include a little music player directly with every review, so people can listen to the music directly. Many other websites have this actually.
