Who are you and what do you do in your band?
We are D. the drummer and M. the lead guitarist and vocalist.
When/where was your band formed?
We founded Funest in winter 2012 in Milan,but only D. is from there,the other members are from Sicily (M.),Ecuador (E.) and Piedmont (H.S.).
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
We worship it…we’re fucking addicted,we grew up listening to Possessed,Grave,Autopsy,Death,Entombed,Incantation and other cult bands.
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
M- In the beginning I was the main composer,I used to write the whole songs of Desecrating Obscurity at home just by myself with all my influences,but now the new songs are arranged with the influences of everyone in the band.
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
D- Mostly of the lyrics were written by me,except for Obsession for Desecration and Catacomb Torture. The inspiration mainly comes from themes like death,sorrow,pain,gore and of course,anti christianity and religion positions generally,which I’ve always joined, but others important themes for me are falsity and selfishness of the whole human race,and how people are slaves of money and fame,how they become puppets in front of reality and destroys themselves or how they betray or just lie to each other. Personally I find inspirations not just listening other bands or reading other lyrics,but just living in this corrupted world, that is getting rotten more and more, day by day, physically and morally…and I think is a very good way to gain inspiration.
Is there an ideology behind your band?
M-I don’t believe in ideologies or stuff like that. We have alcoholic and blasphemous attitude in our life (and in the rehearsal room!). The only ideology that runs in my mind are the same that you can find in our lyrics about ANTICHRISTIAN IDEOLOGY.We complete despise all the circles of the church and christianity in each single ways.
Fuck all the politics and all religions in this sick world.
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
D-Well, although I think that the “golden years” of Death Metal are gone,there are many good bands in playing around in Italy and other countries. I saw a good return to the “roots”,a rebirth of the old school scene during the last years,with many bands playing in the vein of early Death,Grave,Incantation,Immolation…and especially the Swedish sound has been recently rediscovered, and this helped to deepen the genre by people who maybe in the past didn’t listen it often and revalue it.
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
M- We are practicing and composing new songs. We’d like to split with other killer bands but nothing concrete at the moment. The new songs are more killer – obscure – death than the past ones.
Name another Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
We prefer not to answer to this question.
