Hello to you Riccardo, how are you?
Good, thanks! Greetings to you and your readers from Endamaged!

Say a few words about Endamaged foundation.
Endamaged was born in Rome, Italy in the end of 2010 with the actual lineup. We play heavy metal, with some proggy and some thrashy elements. It’s not that easy to define what we do. What really matters to us is that our music is passionate and natural, even if not so ordinary: we don’t believe in artificial complexity for its own sake and as a showing off.

”At the Gates” is the debut album.
Yeah, it’s our first album, as the title states. We’ve actually recorded it in mid-2013, but the post-production took over a year because we’ve self recorded, engineered and produced it. Luca (the guitarist) did, in fact. The album contains some of our oldest songs from 2010, like Soldier god and When the walls fall down, and it’s our first album ever, so we’ll always be attached to it. It was also really well received by fans and critics, despite its home made production. We really didn’t know where we were going with it, so we’ve tried to keep a low budget. But this won’t be the case with our next work in studio, which will have a proper professional recording and production.

Hi Pi, how things are going?
Pretty well Carla. I’m enjoying my new house, working on a new audio material in my studio, having good time with my love Elisa and our cat Charlotte.

When have you founded Digitalis Purpurea?
I released the first demo CD “Pi Greco Squad” in 2003 but the project started before, around 2000.

Let’s talk about the releases.
“Aseptic White” is the first, released in 2008. The theme is focused on the aseptic atmosphere recreated with the modular use of colors, mainly red and white, with references to Japanese culture. It is inspired by Tsukamoto’s films and japanese subcultures. “Emotional Decompression Chamber” is the second one, released in 2010. This album can be defined as a cinematic record because of the combination between sounds and images set as its keystone. The protagonists of the lyrics, Junichiro and Ishtar, are a modern version of “Fando y Lis” (first work of Alejandro Jodorowsky) chasing the legendary city called Tar on a David Lynch’s Lost Highway. The sound is the soundtrack to this imaginary film. Both records have been worldwide pressed by the italian label “Aural Music”. The third full-length album is “Palindrome Shapes Of Mold”. It is a Giallo Thrilling Opera. The digital format has been released by Danse Macabre Records. The limited edition cassette is produced by Subalpina Industry.

Interview Lectern

Interview with the Italian Death metal band, Lectern.

Hi guys, how are you?
Howdy! All okay, thank you!

When was Lectern born?
Fabio: In 1999 as a Death metal act. All we wanted at that time, was inspired by Florida bands of the early 90’s as the same is what we want now! The style we follow is death metal from the United States, nothing melodic or commercial. Yes, we’re European but I don’t like stuff like Dark Tranquillity you know. Great bands from our continent, come from Spain, France, England or Sweden like Avulsed, Loudlblast, Infestation and Unleashed. We are a sort of mix of brutal like Suffocation and classic death metal as early Deicide. Going back to the debate about how we felt in the 1990’s well, it was the time of flyers and demotapes. Today, you can be a musician simply at home, playing and recording on your chair in front of a monitor, as you press the record button. In the past century, there was a real playing attitude, you should go into a studio to record your stuff, no hard disk! Everything was still real, especially if to spare a lot of money, the band recorded live all the instruments. Riffs were written at rehearsals and arranged in countless months. You had no file sharing anyway! Other times, ya know! Really! Now we have Internet, You Tube views and shit like that. You are forced to be on the web and to like something always, just as a habit and not a real knowledge of things. Everything cannot be virtual, music isn’t that way!.
Pietro: Lectern were born in 1999 from an idea of Fabio and led the old school death metal directly from Florida.

You have released the first full length this year entitled “Fratricidal Concelebration”. What can you tell me about it?
Fabio: That kicks ass! But if I see the album with the eyes of one year after, well, it looks a little weaker for the guitar sound. The great job was made in production by Giuseppe Orlando at The Outer Sound Studios. I asked him some tricks, to have a great result, but I must admit that after all, it was the top we could reach one year ago!
Marco: It was my first recording experience, so it means a lot for me. It’s what came out from our minds and hands in months of work and shredding. It has a strong theological base along some kicking ass riffs.
Pietro: It was a unique record this album. We made many sacrifices, we fought a lot and in the end we put this monster out from the depths! This album includes everything you need to be known as death metal and I think any person who loves this kind of tunes, cannot be disappointed.

How were the reviews for the album?
Fabio: Pretty good! The underground is full of webzines and xerox paper which helped the band to have the right attention, also on the radio. We had a great trouble by censorship, bu now it’s passed. It’s time to play live a lot!
Marco: It has been well received and a lot of reviews focused a lot on my drumming and this actually surprised me if I think I did never played death metal since two years ago.
Pietro: They have been very positive in all sites where we have done a review, in fact some were a bit disappointed by the fact that some songs are very technical death metal. I do not see this great technique but I am glad that some people think so, after all we created this album to be old school and brutal death metal only.
