Interview with Public Grave

Tell us about your latest release: the main concept; what fans should expect; what were/are your goals with it:

Korny: “Cadaverous Resurrection is a concept album about the current state of our society. The social sickness makes us mad and we want to get rid of apple-polishers acting without thinking.”

The main Idea of Cadaverous Resurrection was to create a solid Death Metal Album with slamming brutal death elements. We are stoked about the great feedback we got in the last weeks and want to say thank you for all the support we get. Our next step is to play some good shows with our new Album and try to come around with it.

Did you have a specific sound in mind when you formed the band, or did that grow and evolve as you played together?

In the early days of 2008 we tried to do a sound familiar to Six Feet Under, Kataklysm and Cannibal Corpse. We made two EP`s, one in 2009 and one in 2012. But as we were never really satisfied with our stuff, we decided to do a fresh restart in 2016 after 1 1/2 years offtime. One could say we needed some years to grow and evolve our sound and style you can hear now.

How does your writing process normally work out?

Everybody is involved in the songwriting process. During the process we just try out different things, collect riffs and new ideas for songs. Based on those ideas we start to actually work on the songs, while everybody keep on adding new ideas, of drum parts, guitar parts or bass parts, even if this instrument isn’t his main instrument. After a song is completed, Hamby starts to write the lyrics.

What are your ambitions and how far do you want to push your band?

We dream of being part of the lineup of “70 000 Tons Of Metal” some day and other big open air festivals. To begin with, a tour through Europe would be awesome!

What are your influences/musical references and the impact those same influences had in your sound?

All band members are totally into slamming brutal death metal so we go to a lot of concerts. We might not be a pure slam band but we still love adding musical elements from this genre to our own music. The most important thing in our songwriting is to create songs we ourselves would love to hear. To sum it up, we picked the elements we like from different genres and tried to work out similar elements for our own songs.

What’s next for you?

At the moment we planing some shows all around Germany/Austria/Swiss and working on some material for new songs. We don’t have concrete plans for a second Album yet, but we looking forward to create some sounds.
