For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
We are Human Parasites, a black metal duo (Astraeos - strings and vocals / Kng - drums) from Karditsa, a small city in central Greece.
Recently you where a part of a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on your side of the recording?
Raw, punk and misanthropic.
What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
We are standing against any organized religion that mankind created and against the whole stupidity of the human race.
What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Human Parasites'?
The parasitic nature of humanity.
Currently there are only 2 members in the band, are you planning on expanding the line up in the future or do you chose to remain a duo?
Nope, we will remain a duo. The only addition will be a session bass player for a future live performance.
Recently you where a part of a split with 'Human Serpent', what are your thoughts on the other band that have participated on the recording?
Human Serpent are a great band, they had the idea to release a split and our answer was affirmative without second thought. I hope we will have the honour to share the stage with them in the future.
The split was released on Old Graves Productions, how did you get in contact with this label?
The split is about to be released on tape by the Greek label Old Graves Productions (50 copies) and the Peruvian label MercyfulHell Productions (150 copies). Human Serpent got in contact with the man behind Old Graves and I with MercyfulHell.
On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black metal?
Not so many people know our name yet because we are a new band, but the majority of people listened to our music have a good word to say.
Are any of the band members also involved with any other bands or musical projects?
The drummer KNG is also playing for the doom/sludge metallers Noir and for the crust band Procrastinate and I am playing on the black metal bands Theosis, Morbid Fog, L'Hiver and Vetusmora.
When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
The debut full length album is ready, including eight songs. We are in search for a label, I hope soon we will have more news about it. Now, about the future, our basic plan, except creating music, is to have some live performances.
What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Our basic influences are Craft, Carpathian Forest, Dodsferd, GG Allin and Discharge. Now, personally, I listen to many different music styles, metal or not. This moment, answering the questions, I am listening Vukodlak, a US black metal band from Pennsylvania.
Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Spread the plague of hate against the mankind's insanity!
