Exhumation Logo - white


Summon: How did the band get started?

Gaps: Back in 2008 and it was blast from the past I supposed. Since we know, we were meant to be destined together in Exhumation. And I think it’s better if you look into how young we were when we build this vessel.



Summon: What kind of music do you play?

Gaps: A very haunting and massive tunes and sounds real DEATH!!!



Summon: How has the fan response been?

Gaps: It’s better than the last few years I supposed. When we haven’t loaded any records and stuffs. But after releasing Hymn To Your God, I guess some people hailing out our name.

Summon: Where did the band name come from?

Gaps: The name was taken from the depth of the abyss, from the highest matter of valley of death.



Summon: Introduce the band members and what they do in the band.

Gaps: It’s me Gaps the Ghoul and I play some strings, Grave on the Bass, and Bones on the vocal. The rest is additional/live sessions player my friend. An on the Drums, and J (Headkrusher) on the guitar.



Summon: Who writes the music? Lyrics?

Gaps: It’s been my honor to say that we are all songwriter. However, one point; when we are in the studio, we’re actually never really care how the songs would be,  since we don’t talk to much where the rhymes come from, just let it be! and it sounds natural!



Summon: And where do the lyric ideas come from?

Gaps: From far beyond there! And our words purely comes from our spiritual experiences, from walk far into the mist, into the woods, into our own grave.



Summon: What is your view in Satanism and Occultism?

Gaps: Well, there’s a dark energy far beyond there for some people who actually believe it, maybe it’s take a massive role to their life too, yet few people are. I think you need some intensity, conviction when you are talking about this and that. But I know, I’m not capable to talk about this and that so much, Since I have nothing to do with satanism and Occultism, personally! But I do appreciated their works you know, and I just appreciated for some people who are really intense and give their dedication and devotion to some certain matter and source! 



Summon: How many albums/CD’s have you released?

Gaps: So far, we have released a split album with our friends (Nocturnal Kudeta and Goddess of Fate) last 2011, and debut album on 2012 “Hymn To Your God” and will be reissue via Dunkelheit Produktionen (Ger) this year I would say. GRAB IT! Enter this link

Summon: Who are some of your musical influences?

Gaps: It was like, a lot stuffs. Since I know I love to dig some stuffs from far beyond there. I personally worship some DEATH ELITE bands like early Nile, Dismember, Entombed, and so on. I think this paper would not enough to write them my friends, cause I’m not typical “stuck in there”, I dig more more underground stuffs everyday. 



Summon: Which current bands?

Gaps: Morbus Chron, In Solitude, The Oath, and stuffs.



Summon: What is the band like when you play live?

Gaps: One thing, I suggest you not to think we’re a “fun, interesting, enjoyable, and adorable” band in the stages. Yeah, we’re graveyard alike, death alike, we’re horrible and haunting people in the stage. Not highly-superb-recommended for people who look for fun in some show/gig.



Summon: Have you guys ever played in another country?

Gaps: Not so yet, but we have put the seeds. I mean this year supposed to be our first tour to SEA, after the second album, we will be there! 



Summon: How big of crowd shows up at shows usually?

Gaps: I guess we’re not a famous band in our country as well, so you know the answer. We only small band in the nderground world.



Summon: How is the crowd response when you play?

Gaps: 13 of 100 people would say “GREAT SHOW” and the rest HATE us. 



Summon: What do you think of the US Black Metal/Death Metal scene?

Gaps: Not much to say, I’m so sorry my friend, but I don’t really know about “how’s BM/DM things going in Europe and US” since I lived too far away with them, but surely; same as here, some growing faster some growing lower. 



Summon: What do you think of the Overseas scenes?

Gaps: Lately, I am kinda amazed with India Scenes, indeed! Bangalore Hordes! just dig some bands from there, Necrodeity, Dhwesha, Dying Embrace. I think some people should pay attention to those bands, their dedication and devotion is like massive works!



Summon: What are some of new favorite black metal/death metal bands?

Gaps: 1. Headkrusher a funeral thrash band from my hometown Yogyakarta, you should get their first record my friend. It’s really promising I supposed.

Summon: When do you guys plan on writing any new material?

Gaps: We’re working on it my friend, there’s blood spill in our room, we lose some breath on this upcoming stuff so better if you keep your eyes open on us. We will enter the studio this February I would say.
