Interview with Matt Sotelo of Decrepit Birth

This is the band that challenges a metal world now rife both imitators and innovators. Metal Rules got the chance to speak with Matt Sotelo about Decrepit Birth’s influences, the new up-coming album, today’s music industry opinion, Michael Jackson and many more…

Guitarist Matt Sotelo commented: “We are very proud to announce that bassist Derek Boyer is returning to the full time DECREPIT BIRTH line up! Derek was a very strong force on our debut album, and his skills have only improved over the past years as the bassist for the mighty SUFFOCATION. Having Derek back in the band is a really exciting situation for us, because he brings so much to the table and is one of our best friends. Come check out Derek on tour with us during February and March with KATAKLYSM, ALL SHALL PERISH, CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE and ABYSMAL DAWN, throughout the US and Canada!

We would also like to thank Joel Horner for his years in the band. Joel decided to leave on positive terms due to personal decisions. We remain close friends with him, and wish him the best of luck!”

Derek Boyer added: “From before playing with them, to doing …And Time Begins with them, to seeing grow to where they are now – I’ve always loved DECREPIT BIRTH! It’s an honor to be playing with these guys again!”

DECREPIT BIRTH: Artwork Revealed

June 11th, 2010
DECREPIT BIRTH - POLARITY

DECREPIT BIRTH - POLARITY

Santa Cruz CA’s tech-death masters, DECREPIT BIRTH, have revealed the artwork for their upcoming Polarity album, to be released on July 27th in North America on Nuclear Blast Records. The artwork was completed by cult artist Dan Seagrave (MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION, etc.) and can be viewed to the right.

Guitarist Matt Sotelo explained the meaning behind the cover:

Dan‘s art fits the overall theme of the album perfectly. We had approached Dan with some ideas at a show of ours he attended. It was really cool to finally meet Dan in person and get the chance to explain to him some of our song themes as well as ideas for the new album cover. We could tell that he was excited to help us on this one! The cover depicts images of ancient energies and balance, which is something that is personal for us, and perfectly reflects our abstract lyrical and musical style. Dan‘s art is so unmistakable!”

Artist Dan Seagrave offered an even more in depth reasoning behind his artistic interpretation:
“It is the vision of a transcendental nightmare. where the perception of technological power has gone beyond the will of the author. In the slumbering cohesive minds of the human race, and the absence of communicative truth between people, their social masks become their Sarcophagi. A telepathic cult is formed that fells the earth, reducing it to an atomic level. Its information trapped in mirrored shards. Through this energy, distant echos of images are glimpsed, particles reform, and a new chronozone period is born, set adrift at a dawnless epoch.”
Polarity Track Listing:

1. (A Departure of the Sun) Ignite the Tesla Coil
2. Metatron
3. The Resonance
4. Polarity
5. Solar Impulse
6. Mirroring Dimensions
7. A Brief Odyssey in Time
8. The Quickening of Time
9. Sea of Memories
10. Symbiosis
11. Darkness Embrace

Live at The Underworld

7th June 2008

Live pics and review by HannTu


The good folks over at Arcane Promotions put on this yearly event dedicated completely to celebrate and showcase the sweet and soothing strains of death metal. Previous years have seen Gorerotted, Vader, Avulsed, Abaddon Incarnate, Extreme Noise Terror, Akercocke and Prostitute Disfigurement take to the stage, and this year, Arcane Promotions managed a major coup by bringing Cryptopsy and Decrepit Birth to The Underworld for an evening of blast beats, inhuman growls, technical musicianship and some sheer fucking extreme atmosphere.
