Summon: How did the band get started? How did you meet and how long have you been together?
Brice: We all live very close to each other on Chicago’s South West side, and I guess some of our friends in high school have a lot to do with how we met. Mat, Pat and Garrett were practicing together under the name “Necromemesis” with no bass player. All four of us became close friends because we would drink and do a ton of drugs together all the time, spit on each other, eat shit, never bathe, spread vomit in our faces etc. etc… When we found out we all dwell in the shadows of the Piss Lourdes testicles, “CorpseVomit” was thrown unto this red earth (6/93).
Summon: How would you describe your music?
Brice: Blistering Filth Metal.
Summon: What are your biggest musical influences?
Brice: Pure blind anger and hatred, dismal weather, determination, frustration, all of the ignorant fucking morons that live in this filthy piece of shit city.
Summon: Who if, if any do you consider the bands idols?
Brice: Billy Idol
Summon: What made you want to be in the band? And if you weren’t in the band what would you want to be doing now?
Brice: Our simple, common interest in things most foul and perverse. If I wasn’t involved in Corpsevomit, I’d still heavily be into our precious underground, ordering demos, fanzines etc. My cranium mat explode, though due to pent up aggression, ass Corpsevomit is my life only release of hunger.
Summon: What are some of your favorite bands that are really popular today?
Brice: Only Corpsevomit and Silverday. Is this question a fucking joke? NONE of my “favorite bands” are “really popular”. I Take no interest in anything that appeals to this failing humanity as a whole. It’s obvious to me that this is not Metal fanzine. I despite most everything this world has to offer.
Summon: How many demos/albums do you have? Tell me about them.
Brice: We have most of the material four our third demo completed now (11/95). Our first demo is completely out of print now because we dropped all of those songs except one, It was called “Demo 1”, it had 6 songs and was released 8/93. Our second is called “Gathering Chemical Children” and contains 5 songs. This one was released 11/94 and we’ve went through just about 900 copies of it. Everyone is encouraged to write if you’d want more info.
Summon: If you could play with any band who would it be and why?
Brice: Let’s face it any band would want themselves to play out with someone very well known, simple because there would be more mother fakers there. But I couldn’tt deal with any headliner, rock arrogant attitude especially false metal pussies like Pantera, Machine Head and Biohazard. I would rather have the integrity of playing a medium sized club with a band I really respect. A little trip to Germany to open for the gods Sodom sounds kind of nice. Metal War!
Summon: Who writes the majority of the music?
Brice: Pat, Mat or myself each come up with a whole songs, including lyrics, then teach it to each other. Garrett (drums) pretty much takes it from there with the arrangements after he’s listened to a tape of us playing the whole song on guitar. This may sound corny or some shit but it really is 25% of input from each member.
Summon: Who has been the favorite band you’ve played with? Why?
Brice: Right now, we have to give credit and respect where it’s due. We’ve played with the gods “Incantation” four times in four different states this year (not all in a row though). They’ve been an influence on us for quite awhile and they’ve really supported us and helped us out a lot. They are our brothers of true metal.
Summon: Where did you get the band name from?
Brice: I thought (not too long, though) of the names before I was even in the band. I wanted to combine two fucked up words together, kind of like godflesh, so I came up with the brilliant name of Corpseflesh. But then the word Corpsevomit stuck in everyone’s head ever since I mentioned it, because it’s an accurate lifestyle description of the whole vomit crew. Hail and kill!
Summon: Describe what the band is like live?
Brice: We prefer to call our live shows an “Attack”, complete with leather, spikes and all things nice. Oh yeah, the mighty Piss Lourde may appear to comment the goatized one for their atrocities. Blood, Fire and Death!
Summon: If you are gonna do any kind of video what would be in it?
Brice: Goats, beer and naked children. A video huh? Did you send me the Weezer interview by mistake?
Summon: Are there any tour plans made, if so tell me about them?
Brice: No, not yet, but we’d like to set up our own mini-tour in 96′ if we can save enough bank. We’d really enjoy getting a chance to meet a lot of the sick ones that we do mail with. Although we’ve never met, I consider many of these people good friends. We also consider it our duty to spread the forever filth in 96′.
Summon: Where do you think the band will be in 20 years from now?
Brice: It’s very likely that at least two of us will be dead, but if not, I’m sure we’ll still close companions taking treatment for our ulcers. If all goes well, in 20 years I’ll be a wrestling commentator for WCW.
