1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
Reshitivist is a one man blackened death metal project from Melbourne, Australia with dark music and lyrics that display a misanthropic and depressive attitude. Reshitivist is currently made up of multi instrumentalist and audio engineer "Bage".
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
A dark, drum and guitar driven, cold and heavy progression between various sub genres of death metal with a symphonic twist in some areas.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
Depresion, anarchy, transcendence, misanthropy, philosophy, why the fuck are others the ways they are?
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Reshitivisit'?
Reshitivist came from the TV show Trailer Park Boys. The word recidivist means one who offends and breaks the law constantly and often. My first project is called "Law Breaker", so I thought it was appropriate to follow up on that with Recidivist; but then out of the sake of tribute to TPB I called it Reshitivist. It's like recidivist but shittier ;)
5.With this project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to remain solo?
I'm in a number of bands with musicians of varying skill and background. I prefer making music myself.
6.You reside in both Australia and Siberia, what affect does this have on the musical style you play?
When in Siberia I play a lot of guitar and no drums. My music tends to sound happier in Siberia than when I'm home in Australia. Believe it or not, the winters in Australia feel colder and lonelier than in Siberia and I think that feeling of solitude cuts through my music a little more.
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and death metal?
Pretty poor actually! I've had a few people from various parts of Europe who really like it and share it actively, but Australian's don't seem to get into it as much as I expected them too.
8.Are you involved with any other musical projects or bands or have been in the past?
