Mechanical God Creation: Infidel Interview #60

First I just want to thank you for participating in this edition of Infidel Interviews. With this interview let's just start with a bit about yourself. Where are you from, how old are you, and how long have you been making music for?

Francesco: Hi thanks for interview, we live all in Lombardia a region in the north of Italy.

Mechanical God Creation is formed by: Lucy 31 year old, Mirko 25, Luca 28, Carlo 26 and me 35 year, I’m the oldest one, only for age.

Lucy is the only formed member in the actual line-up.

It’s been many years that I have lived in the music scene, about 20.

How do you enjoy where you live? Is their a vibrant music community for you to indulge? Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity?

Francesco: I love my country, it’s a beautiful place, Here there are a lot of good bands in the underground scene, but the difference between Italy and other countries is the importance of the cover bands which in Italy are increasing and take away space frk the metal bands that plays their own songs. I think that our music isn’t influenced by the scene but it’s personal, we go ahead with our own path with our attitude and our music.

How did the members of Mechanical God Creation meet and come agree on the sound for the project? Where did the name of the project come from, and what deeper symbolic meaning does it represent to you?

Lucy: The band born in Autumn 2006 in Milan with our first guitarist Simo. We met it in a forum after listening to some songs he composed. I really liked it and asked him if he wanted to do a death metal band with me. Then we started to search for the other members. We had several line-up changes and we played in big shows. We recorded 1 demo and 2 full length albums in these 6 years. The name of the band was proposed by an old member, we liked it and it became our name..simply☺, the name don’t have a symbolic meaning.

Even though english it not your native tongue, most if not all of your lyrics are in English. How do you find writing lyrics in your non-native tongue, and how does writing in english stylistically compare to writing in Italian?

Lucy: I write lyrics in English because it’s the most important language in music, many people understand English. I never write a lyric in Italian and I can’t compare with English.

Being a female in the metal community you probably get both a lot of respect for what you do, and also a lot of flack from more close minded individuals. How do you deal with being in such a male dominant music scene, and do you look to inspire more women into the scene?

Lucy: Women in metal does not always get good views and I have received some negative comment over the years, but honestly I step beyond these things and go forward more convinced, if I can be an inspiration to other women it would be an honor.

Who have been some of your biggest influences when it comes to growling and harsh vocals? Who are some of your biggest influences in music in general?

Lucy: I was inspired by Cadaveria but anyway I prefer male singers like Fisher, my influences are Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse , Deicide, Septic Flesh, Dissection, Behemoth and many more.

When it comes to non-musical media, what do you find yourself most inspired by, and what about it draws you to it as a source of inspiration? Do you participate in the gaming world? Avid reader perhaps? Maybe cinema fan? Combination of some lol?
