Interview  with  Children Of  Technology   done  by   Patrick
1.Metal  hails  when  did  you  all first  meet?  was  it  long  before  Children Of  Technology   was  born?
The band was formed in 2008 by Death Lord and Goddess, they use to live in the same area and share a lot of music. That has been the original core of the band. Borys and Jex has joined at the end of 2012.
2.What  is   the  current  line-up  for  the  band?  For  the  reader's  who  maybe  new to   Children Of  Technology's  music  how  would  you  describe  it?
Death Lord on vocals, Goddess of Hammering Chaos on drums, Borys Crossburn on guitar, Mad Jex on bass. Well, COT blend together metal and punk in the 80's tradition, both in the UK (Warfare, Broken Bones, English Dogs...) and US (Carnivore above all) way, it's post-apocalyptic mayhemic metalpunk destruction!!
3.Children Of  Technology  are  getting  ready  to  release  their  second  LP/cd  "Future Decay"   through   Hells  Headbanger's  Rec.  how  did  you  guys  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label?

We got in touch with them in 2010 when they released the Cd version of our first album (vinyl was on Agipunk). Right now "Future decay" is out on Cd on Hells Headbangers but vinyl is actually on Ripping Storm Records.
4.How  long  did  it  take to  write  the  songs  on  the  new  release  "Future Decay"?  Does  the   whole  band  take  part  in  the  writing  of  the  music  or  does  one member  usually  write  everything?
It has taken almost a year of work, we live pretty far from each other and had to work hard on the songs and on cementing the new line-up. We work together on the songs, that's why it takes longer by the way. We are very happy with the result, both sound and music-wise.
5.Who   usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  band? What  are  some  topics/subjects  you  all write  about?
Lyrics are written by Death Lord, they are usually set in a post-apocalyptic world and the whole mood is pretty gloomy. If you are into movies like the Mad Max trilogy, A Boy and his Dog, Threads, Children of Men... well, you know what we mean
6.Does  Children Of  Technology     have  any  tours  or  shows  coming  up?  If  yes  where  will  the  band  be  playing ?
 It's not easy to work out tours since we all have regular day jobs, but we already have several concerts planned in Italy and we are looking forward to hit abroad as well, we already had the chance to tour Europe twice in the past
7.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  share  the  stage  with?
We have played with Corrosion Of Conformity, Pagan Altar, Hellbastard, Witchburner, Zoldier Noiz, Angel Witch, Ghost, Hooded Menace, Wolfbrigade, Nunslaughter, Inepsy among the many bands. Would be great playing with Warfare and Death SS!
8.Children Of  Technology    come  out  of  Italy's  music  scene  what  is  your   opinion  of  Italys   music scene?
The italian scene is healthy, there's a whole lot of great bands ready to be discovered or which are already quite known. There'se a lot of shows going on also. Maybe not many labels/distros but we won't complain, we have had our share of hard times in the past
9.Who  are  some  of  your  all time  favorite  Italian  bands?Are  their   any  new  bands  you   feel  the  readers  should  check  out  sometime  soon?
 Among the classics how not to mention Death SS, Strana Officina, Wretched, Goblin, Bulldozer, Schizo, Necrodeath, Incinerator, Negazione, Dark Quarterer, Krisma, Battiato... and yeah, Sabrina Salerno! well, talking more strictly about actual italian metal/punk bands, we would mention Bunker 66, Morbo, Noia, Kontatto, Gravesite, Overcharge, Abysmal Grief, Axevyper, Violentor, Profanal, Voids of Vomit, Baphomets Blood, Hatred, Ed, Extirpation, Terrorsaw... 
10.In  your   opinion  what   does  Underground  metal  mean  to  you?
 It's our past, present and future, we deeply respect all the people the keeps it alive and we do our share of work as well! Only the underground is really passion-driven, when it's money-driven instead, well, that's not our pair of shoes anymore.
11.Are  any  of  the   members   of   Children Of  Technology   currently  working  with   other  bands  or  solo  projects?
Borys also plays in Barbarian and Robanera and Jex in Saturnine.
