Who are you and what do you do in your band?
I’m Gorgo and I am the vocalist of Suicidal Causticity
When/where was your band formed?
SC officially borned in 2011 in Florence, from the ashes of a previous project named Orodreth, by the vicious mind of Dario Lastrucci (bass) including Riccardo Tortoli (guitar), Fabrizio Maddaluni (guitar) and Thomas Passanisi (drums). After the release in 2013 of our fist LP ”The Spiritual Decline” (under Ghastly Music), chance and necessity forced us, during the 2014, to change our formation, bringing up to dephts of hell our current guitarists Leonardo Galteri and Elia Murgia.
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
Jeez, the classic one million dollar question!
Joking aside, Italy has a lot of troubles as everyone knows and maybe is this very environment that inspired us and pushed to play one of the darkest, extreme and deepest music genre, like death metal.
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
Our main composer is Dario, especially for the first album.
Within sight of the next album, by the way, me and Dario decided to join forces and work together in the development of the tracks. Of course, during the arrangement, everyone of us has the freedom and the right to revise the riffs and to suggest something new if is worth of it.
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
Since the writing of ”The Spiritual Decline” my purpose, as responsible for the lyrics and concepts, was to not follow the commonplace of gore visions and splattering scenes without putting in something controversialist and psychological. Except for that, my main inspirations are all the darkest sides of humanity, from perversions and fears to somatizations and multicultural spiritual diseases.
Is there an ideology behind your band?
We don’t have any political or social message to deliver.
Our ideology is our goal: to prove the infinite shades that a genre like death metal could have.
Most of the people described us like a BDM band, but I think that it’s a little unspecified: our mission is to write songs that draw from a large cauldron of variations and (sometimes) experimentations, as much as is the number of songs needed by the concept.
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
Many people in Europe (and not only) consider Italy as one the most fertile producers of good death metal and we are honoured to follow the steps of bands like Hour Of Penance and Fleshgod Apocalypse as well.
Fortunately, even in a stubborn country like Italy, during the last years something is changing and ever more people are opening their eyes and supporting the death metal scene.
But honestly I have to admit that there’s still a lot of work to do about it.
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
The upcoming goal is to finalize our second LP, then, immediately working on the third!!! Then, we really hope to play our music much as possible travelling across Italy and Europe.
Name an other Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
In addition to the bands I mention before, I add Ade, Hideous Divinity, Antropofagus, Natron, Septycal Gorge…. but really, I can write it a thousand more…
Thanks for the occasion!
