  Hails! I grew up listening to stuff like Metallica, Black Sabbath and hard rock bands through my Dad.

Some current favorites are disEMBOWELMENT, Mortem(Peru), and Perdition Temple.

NB - Drums/vocals
3.For  the  readers  who  have   never   heard   Seraphic Disgust's  music  how  would  you  describe  it?

me and Nick have written a big chunk of the songs however   Ian added some of his own riffs and creative input, Ryan as well both of them have been a great contribution, bringing us our strongest line up for seraphic disgust .NB writes the majority of the lyrics usually based around evil,occult and demonology where the lyrics I contribute are dark as well but a bit more gore/ death/ filth based

yes we have more merch available we have a pro CD that was released from Chilean record label,  Engulfed  in darkness records as well as a multiple variety of T-shirt designs from Shortsleeve two long sleevehit us up directly on Facebook for ordering info
7..What   does  underground  metal   mean  to you?
the underground scene is one of the most true ,forgotten ,hated scenes around yet to me and other loyal fans it is everything these are bands that play music just to play and compose music not caring about what others may think or say , the underground  metal scene is strong and getting stronger ,horns up to you all the underground black death metal bands out there ,keep the flame burning
8. Seraphic Disgust    comes  out  of  the  Californian  metal  scene.What   is  your   opinion  of  California's   metal   scene?
I feel the Californian scene is , great in our hometown San Diego we have some great bands and a small loyal black death scene The scene seems to be greater and stronger heading up north from Los Angeles to the bay area.
9..Who   are  your   all-time  favorite   bands  to  come  out  of   California? Are  their   any  new  bands  from   California  that  you   feel  the  readers   should   watch  out  for?
hmmmm that's a bit of a tough question there are many great bands that have come from ,California  mainstream and underground bands like autopsy, testament exodus Sadus,Megadeth ,slayer just to name a few and then there are even some great bands coming out of San Diego such as condemned, invocation war ,impure consecration, ascended dead ,archaic  mortuary ,antebellum 666 ,lurid memory, Mortuus terror,disgorge, just to name a few
10.NB  you  handle  the  drums  for  the  band  when  did you  first  start  playing  the  drums?  Are  you  self  taught  or  did you  take   lessons   when  first  starting  out?
I started playing drums when I was 16, so its been about 8 years. I am self taught which means I am constantly trying to correct my technique.
11.Who  are  some  of your   influences and  favorite  drummers?Besides the   drums  do  you  currently   play  any other   instruments?
 I grew up listening to Rush so naturally, Neil Peart is one of my influences. I'm a huge fan of Pete Sandoval's work as well! I also play guitar, I had actually composed some of the riffs for this project...although most of the guitars are written by AC.
