Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
The Autotheism project was born in 2016 in Brescia, Italy, as a Death Metal studio project, composed by members from (EchO), Quantum Hierarchy and Atomic Factory.
In 2017 we have released our first self-produced EP, entitled "Hives MMXVII", a short demo of two tracks of brutal death metal with some sci-fi influences. After one year we’ve released only in digital version a 17 minutes song, entitled "CLSTVM - Dogma Sculptured in the Flesh”.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We don’t have a specific genre. We take advantage of the Death Metal music in order to create an apocalyptic, dark and evocative atmosphere. The bands we take influence are so many, but principally we have a devotion for bands like Ulcerate, Portal, Immolation, Dead Congregation, Gorguts, Cult of Luna, Deathspell Omega, Hate Eternal and Incantation.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because we write music that gives you visual sensations.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
This year we have released for free on our Bandcamp page a second EP, called "CLSTVM - Dogma Sculptured in the Flesh”. It’s a 17 minutes song of atmospheric death metal, post metal and dark ambient. Actually the response from the public/media is not significative, because we have just begun the promotion.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
At the moment is not our aim to play live.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Because we believe in this project, and because we have something to say.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We are writing our first full length, and will be a concept album about one of the best John Carpenter’s movie.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
You can check our official Bandcamp page (autotheismdeath.bandcamp.com), where you can buy also the copies of our first EP, then you can listen to our material on all the well-known digital platforms (Spotify, Itunes, Deezer, YouTube, Google Play…).
