1.Metal hails Andrew Please introduce yourself to the readers.
I am Andrew Angeldust of Cemetery Lust. I shriek howls of unholiness with the breath of rotting vaginal flesh, cheap cigarettes and cheaper whiskey.
2.When did you meet the other guys in the band? What is the current line up? For the readers who have never heard your music how would you describe Cemetary Lust music?
I met Raypissed, bass and back up vocals, about 18 years ago. We were a couple of deviant minded bastards with the lust for metal and pornography. 10 years later, there was this mother fucker creeping around our parties, perving on chicks. It was Nasty Nate, lead guitars. And in early 2009 we met our drummer Disgustor and our other lead guitarist Crystal Seth at a party in a filthy fucking shithouse. We all got together and jammed and started what is Cemetery Lust. Everyone I mentioned is still in the current line up. And for those of you who haven't heard us, our music is fast, perverted and heavy. Not meant for wimps or the faint of heart.
3.Cemetary Lust is getting ready to release their second cd,LP "Orgies Of Abomination" through Hells Headbanger's Rec. how did you all come in contact with the label?
Our drummer was lurking around at Maryland Death Fest and ran into a dude from HHR and they talked about our disgusting band. They kept in contact and HHR decided they want to release Screams of the Violated and our next album, Orgies of Abomination.
4.How long did it take the band to write the songs on Orgies Of Abomination ?Does the whole band work on the music or usually one or two members write everything? Who usually
writes the lyrics what are some topics you all write about?
It took about a year to write songs for the album, we were slow moving. Sometimes every body contributes to the music writing, sometimes Seth will have a bunch of new riffs. I write all the lyrics. Sometimes they'll have all the music for a song and I'll word it around that rythym and timing. And sometimes I'll have lyrics all written out and they'll work their riffs around my timing. I like to write about sex, intoxication and death. All to the highest extremes. And ultimately, I write about the sickening ways of human nature. Humans are a disgusting species.
5.How has the response been from the fans? and The press?
Response from our fans has been fucking awesome. Our fan base is just starting to grow so it will only get better. We got an awesome response from the crowd in LA. Crazy bunch of mother fuckers. And response from the press, not too much. I guess we'll have to wait for the album to get out there a little more.
6.I Also read that Hell's Headbangers is going to re-release your debut cd "Screams Of The Violated" when will this be available for purchase?
It should be available later this year or early next year. So anyone who buys a copy, make sure you line your fucking drugs on the cover while you listen to it.
7.Does Cemetary Lust play live very often ?Are their any tours/shows coming up that the readers should watch out for?
We play in Portland a lot. We just opened up for Anvil, killer show. We have a rad show coming up on the 4th of July. It will be Black Death, Hirax, Wehrmacht with an appearance form Cryptic Slaughter, Witchaven, Spellcaster, Dead Conspiracy and others. Its gonna be fucking insane
8.Who are some bands you have shared the stage with? If you could set up a dream tour/show who are some bands[past or present] you would love to tour with?
We've opened up for some good bands but not many big ones yet. We've opened for Hirax, the Accused, Gravehill, Witchaven, Insanity, Sorcery, Watain and like I said Anvil. We've played with some kick ass local bands like Spellcaster, Raptor and Maniak. I guess a dream show/tour for me would be with bands like Morbid Angel, Sarcofago, Infernal Majesty, Possessed, Sadus, Razor and Sextrash.
9..In your opinion what is the best and worst thing about the underground? And what does the term "Underground Metal" mean to you?
All the underground means to me is not mainstream. Its a huge underworld of bad ass fucking music that most of the world doesn't even know about. The best part is the tight knit group of people that are true til fucking death to the genre and the bands that continue to make bad ass fucking music even when its not "cool". And the worst part is not being able to get paid much but that's how it goes.
10.Are you or any of the other members of the band currently working with other bands/side projects? if yes please tell us about them.
Our drummer Disgustor and one of our guitar players, Crystal Seth, are currently in a sleazy fucking grind band called the Nekro Drunks. These two degenerate scumbags have been at it longer than Cemetery Lust. And they have a full length release coming in June so fucking be prepared.
11.Andrew you handle the vocals for the band. When did you start singing/screaming?
About 10 years ago, Ray and I started a little death metal project with a friend of ours. It was some vile shit. Didn't think I would ever sing but I did. And song writing became a great way to utilize my morbid imagination.
12.Who are some of your influences/favorite singers? Do you play any other instruments?
Some my musical influences are Sarcofago, Sepultura, Sextrash, Sadus, Nasty Savage, King Diamond/Mercyful Fate, Infernal Majesty, Sodom, Coven, Possessed, etc. My favorite singers are Dio, Halford, King Diamond, Klaus Meine, Alice Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Paul Diano, and Nasty Ronnie. My lyrics are definitely more influenced by horror movies. Some directors that inspire me are William Lustig, Frank Hennenlotter, Jörg Buttgereit, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Joe D'Amato, David Cronenberg, etc.
13.What do you enjoy doing in your spare time ?
In my free time I like to get stoned, watch horror/exploitation flicks, fuck my girlfriend, masturbate when she's not home, eat cheeseburgers, drink soda, drink beer, drink whiskey and act like a total fucking moron
14.Well Andrew thank you for taking the time to fill out this interview .Do you have anything you would like to add before we close the interview?
To all my metal brothers, listen to our albums with your girlfriend, fuck mate or prostitute and fuck her afterwards. She'll probably be wet. And to all the ladies, if you thought you saw someone in your window, you did. It was me or my band. We jack off while you undress.
