Evil Dead By Marcin Skullripper
Embrional was formed in 2003 by Skullripper (guitar, vocal) The first demo Cusp of Evil was recorded in 2006. In 2008 we signed a deal with Old Temple Records and Cusp of Evil has been officially issued. In 2012 we recorded the first full-length album Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviors issued by Old Temple Rec. Meanwhile, we started to play several gigs in Poland and abroad. In 2015 a second full-length album was recorded which was called The Devil Inside. After the accident of the Embrional drummer, the band is not able to continue normal existence and finally, the main line up of the band split up. Two years later the band was permanently supported by Darek Mlody (drums) and Armagog (bass), T.N. (guit). In 2018 ‘Evil Dead’ third full-length album was recorded and self-released by the band in January 2019. More info you can find in the interview below.
The band was formed by (Skullripper) at the beginning of 2003, the first demo we recorded in 2005/2006 and this date is treated by me as the real date of Embrional beast is born. It was a great time to become part of the death metal underground society. We met regularly on rehearsal and composed a sick piece of our art. Just after Cusp of Evil, we recorded a second demo Annihilation which was quite chaotic, however, it was the direction that we would like to develop. In 2012 we recorded the first album Absolutely Anti-Human Behaviors which has got good reviews in underground. It was a really important period for Embrional. The whole band has started to educate music theory and our next releases became more aware. In 2015 Second album was recorded called The Devil Inside. Unfortunately, we had no opportunity to play gigs and promote the album due to a serious accident of our drummer. From that time everything has changed in the band. I had a huge problem to find proper persons to continue the normal life of the band. During two years the line up of Embrional has been changed twice. It was a really hard time for me and the band. Fortunately, in 2017/18 Darek Mlody (drummer in FAM, Squash Balls, ex-Dissenter) agreed to support the Embrional band together with Armagog (bass player FAM, Throneum, Inferno) and T.N. (guit in Devil Priest, Imperator). We found common passion with the effect of third full-length album ‘Evil Dead’.
We have several different influences during the composting process and that’s the main reason why this album is quite a variety. Personally, I love death metal from the beginning of the 90s. In that time many albums were created which in my opinion are just pure classic and never become old. Analog sound and really good skills of musicians gave such an effect. It was our main goal to record an album which will be raw without any spectacular samples or effects. The process of recording cost us lots of effort, however, finally, we are really proud of the final effect. Many maniacs appreciate this hard work as well. We still get positive feedback from the underground from the whole of the world. Music on ‘Evil Dead’ is dark, evil and sometimes really depressive. All this heavy atmosphere was hidden deep in my mind. ‘Evil Dead’ is just a picture of my reality during the last two years. Except for death metal, I am interested in classical music, especially piano. Harmony and some rhythm solutions are mines of music ideas. You can listen to lots of rhythm changes in ‘Evil Dead’. Sometimes progressive influences are included as well. We try to be not limited during the composting process. Music must be good otherwise it will not satisfy the composer.
Lyrics on ‘Evil Dead’ describe mainly surrounding reality. Humans evil is hidden deep in the soul which generally is invisible. I described atrocities which happen every day on our eyes. We are the witness of the unstoppable apocalypse of human beings. Peoples killing each other without any remorse, sometimes to get profits, sometimes just for fun. Religions, money, the hunger of authority all these aspects pushing us closer to annihilation. These songs have no happiness ends.
