Ebullition Interview

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band and give us a brief history?
The band actually existed in a different form in the early 90's with our current bass player and drummer and they did alot of shows back then and then the band fell apart and then split up until 2008 and got the back started back up then and not too long after that I responded to an add in Guitar Player and then I came up after that and we strated writing songs and then we came across Seth Scheldiner our current vocalist, when we first heard his vocals we where blown away since he had alot of power in his vocals, and then from there we started writing songs and doing shows which led to us recording our first album, during the last 9 or 10 months we write this album that is coming out "Soulless" which we recorded and wrote in less than 9 months, while we where doing that we where actively playing live shows, we are very happy with the way the album came out.

2. How would you compare the new album to the demo that came out in the early 90's?
The material in the early 90's was alot closer to doom metal than death metal, this new album is alot better than anything that Ebullition has done in the past, we have improved and starting writing better stuff and we feel that is better than any of the stuff that we have done in the past?

3.How would you describe the lyrical content of the new album?
We worked together and combined all of the different influences we have as a band, our drummer and bass player have alot of heavy doom metal influences which is kind of the stuff they grow up listening to, I actuall grew up around Tampa, Florida and I was around more death metal bands like Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel, that sort of thing, and with are vocalist Seth he is more into stuff like Fear Factory, and we wanted to take our influences and mix them all together, we dont want to be a band that is just death metal, thrash metal, or doom metal. W like all forms of metal and I think the is why the songs sound the way they do on the new album.

4. Are you currently looking for a record label?
We are in the prcess of right now, we aare working on the different things that the record labels require like getting our music out there and heard, obviously metal is a life form of music, we are working on getting a record contract signed.

5.How would you describe your live shows?
We have evolved alot in the past year, we have added things like fog machines, we are looking back on the history of metal and rock, the shows used to be alot more solid, the shows use to be something that would stick into your head with the atmosphere, we are trying to get of the same props in our show that people will memorize, we are trying to use the proper equipment and equipment maintenance to get a much more quility sound.

6. How have death metal fans worldwide react to your music sound?
We have gotten some pretty good reactions actually from people, for some reason particullary germany, we have gotten good reactions from people in Brazil, Argentenia, but the people that have reacted the best are people in Germany and the U.S.

7. Do any of the band members have any side projects going on other than this band?
No we dont have any side projects going on, there are alot of talented people out there that spend too much time with different projects and we will that takes away too uch energy from them, right now we are trying to put all of our energy into Ebullition and give it our full focus.

8. What is the meaning behind the band's name?
Ebullition means a random emotional outburst.

9. What are some of the bands or musical styles that have influenced your music?
Our drummer and our bass player grew up on doom metal bands like Paradise Lost, our singer is a big fan of Fear Factory and that really shows in his vocal style and then I grew up on death metal bands like Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal, I grew up on the bands that have came from Tampa like Cannibal Corpse.

10. What are some of the newer bands that you listen to?
Right now I am actually listening to alot of older In Flames and recently a band called Brujeria, originally I read about them in some magazines, and the other members listen to alot of 90's style percussion work and that sort of thing.

11. What are some of your interests outside of music?
I can really think of anything right now since we have been spending alot of our effort into the music and album which takes up a huge portion of your life. We all have different things that we are into to, our drummer use to train as a cage fighter and that is definately something that he is still into and he goes to alot of MMA shows and things like that, our vocalist Seth is an avid shark fisherman, he is a total redneck that likes to go onto boats shark fishing which is his main interest and he has gotten our bass player alot into shark fishingand for me I spend most of my time playing guitar, I have served in the military and I have to deal with alot of health problems that I got from a tour in Iraq.

12. Do you have anything else that you want to say before we wrap up this interview?
I would say that as a band we continously are trying to improve on all of the things that we have done, and as good as things have turned out for our new album "Solless" we are trying to make the next one sound much better?

13. Thanks for the interview?
Thanks  alot.
