December Wolves
Interview for Necrosis Magazine, December 1998
Melanie speaks to Devon

MR: Greetings. When did the band form and how?

D: About five years ago. How? I guess that’s what happens when a bunch of angry guys get together and decide to make music. Or perhaps we were merely puppets for the Gods. Maybe we’ll never know.

Lineup:
Devon – Vocals/Lyrics/Samples
Brian I. – Guitar/Samples
Tim – Guitars
Brian Bergeron – Bass

MR: Describe your favorite songs and their composition; key elements fans should listen for, etc…

D: Everything we do is genius. Every part, to us, is a key part. So when a fan listens, he, or she, should listen to every part.

MR: Any words of wisdom for the masses?

D: Give up while you still can!!!

MR: How well, do you find, the band has matured and evolved since the beginning?

D: We have undergone some serious stages of developement. I think that we’ve matured quite a bit from when we started. Our music sounds completely different than it did when we first started. Every inch of us has become more aggressive. We became sicker individuals. We had to make sure that the music could keep up. I think a lot of it has to do with line up changes also.

MR: Do you feel that the bands have a relatively large fanbase, so that there is pressure on you to impress and keep it interesting?

D: First and foremost, we make this music for ourselves, and I think that as long as we do that, our we’ll always keep it interesting. Yeah I guess we have a fairly large fan base, but it doesn’t put any pressure on us. If they’re impressed, that’s fine. If not…That’s fine too.

MR: If you could tour with with any 4 other bands, who would they be?

D: In the immortal words of Jeff Spicoli – “I don’t know”.

MR: What do you feel your band brings to the scene?

D: We create audio hallucinations for the unexpected. I haven’t seen another band do that yet.

MR: What do you think of the underground metal scene?

D: I don’t really know much about the underground metal scene these days. I pretty much got out of the scene. I listen to other kinds of music now.

Metal doesn’t really do anything for me anymore, unless it’s really extreme.

MR: What are your goals and aspirations for the band?

D: To make more records and tour.

MR: Any funny/horror band stories?

D: Not really, but Tim and Brian knew a kid in high school who fucked a sheep.

MR: When can your next release be expected?

D: Hopefully, we’ll have everything ready by the summer of 1999. We’ll see.

MR: What can fans look forward to seeing live, and hearing on your releases?

D: Our music will just get sicker, faster more extreme… Our shows will be horrifying.

MR: Is song or lyric writing collaborative, or do certain members do certain things?

D: Certain people in the band do certain things.

MR: What is your opinion on the present death metal scene?

D: Like I said before, I don’t really know much about the metal scene anymore. It doesn’t matter to me.

MR: Do you find it hard coming up with original material?

D: We don’t find it hard. We just let it flow out when it wants to. Our world has plenty of room that needs to be explored. We have a lifetime.

MR: What are your musical and lyrical influences or inspirations, and how do you blend them to  sound unique?

D: Brian is influenced by the bad things in his life and I’m influenced by the bad things in mine. We’re quite the team.
