Encoffination - Interview 2017


La vida se presenta de forma irregular, y somos nosotros los que debemos darle el sentido y formar las sendas que nos llevarán por lo más intrincado; la responsabilidad es grande pero si se tiene una noción de nuestros deseos y sueños puede armarse una vida hermosa y plena.

Muchas veces se desvía, se tuerce, se enreda y pierde sentido: paciencia, todo río vuelve a su cauce original. A veces tarda, pero vuelve. Algunos hablan del destino, el karma o como quieran llamarlo, personalmente quiero pensar que nuestra vida es única, hermosa, luminosa, y solamente está en nosotros darle el sentido máximo y supremo. Cuando nos corrompemos por algún vicio externo nos estamos alejando del sentido. Son las pruebas para el bienvivir, exámenes de la voluntad y del temperamento; podemos ser mágicos en vida, solamente debemos creer en nosotros.

Es así como avanzo (no soy perfecto ni mucho menos, tengo falencias igual que todo el mundo) pero quiero pensar que puedo hacerlo mejor, que la felicidad se puede conseguir y que el ser póstumo es algo que se puede conseguir en vida. Los esfuerzos y sacrificios se ven recompensados y que la vida nos premia con cosas maravillosas según nuestra conducta. Insisto, a la gente buena le pasan cosas buenas.

Seguidor de una escena, he comenzado a definir algunas de las bandas que me gustaría poder entrevistar, y sin duda he comenzado a dar pasos para concretar esas aspiraciones. Las agrupaciones que considero determinantes y relevantes en su escena son mi objeto. Así, envío solicitudes a todo el mundo, esperando respuesta y sabiendo que en el Metal la amplitud de miras de quienes conforman las agrupaciones es algo muy diferente a lo que sucede en el mainstream.

Así di con ENCOFFINATION. Contundentes en extremo, oscuros, pesados, con un aura maligna, negativos, con escenas enfermizas, con cúmulos de horror y cruentas narraciones de muerte, padecimiento, agonía y extinción.

Ellos son la más reciente entrevista. Agradezco el tiempo para responder las preguntas y ser uno más en la historia. Un saludo caluroso a la distancia.

Amig@s, disfruten la entrevista y disfruten la vida. Hasta siempre.





FELIPE: Esteemed, thank you very much for wanting to participate. I confess a fan of the group
ENCOFFINATION: Thank you very much, we appreciate it


FELIPE: Could you make an introduction to the group: Path members and albums.
ENCOFFINATION: JBS – All guitars, vocals, sounds; WJS – All drums and percussions.


FELIPE: Your sound is extremely raw, overwhelming, dark, heavy and with a closeness to sounds more Death Metal than Doom Metal. How did you build the essence of your sound? What influences you had to get to that sound so himself?
ENCOFFINATION: We prefer to be called Death Metal. We are just slower than everyone else. We wanted to achieve and visceral, primordial sound. The literal sound of the earth caving in.


FELIPE: The lyrics play a central role, playing the same role of darkness and putrefaction next to music, staging putrid, moribund, necrotic and cursed places. Who takes the biggest responsibility for the lyric and what kind of influences are central?
ENCOFFINATION: I write all of the lyrics. They are inspired by my interest in the macabre and morbid. As well as my work in the death industry.


FELIPE: Listening to your albums is as if you were watching an old horror movie or reading a book by Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood, among others. What do you expect your followers experience at the moment of putting one of your albums?
ENCOFFINATION: I would agree – the lyrics on our last album (III – Hear Me, O’ Death) are very heavily influenced by Lovecraft. I want the listeners to feel dread and despair – to feel the suffocating atmosphere of their body dying.


FELIPE: You have always been a duo? Has it been simpler like this? Is there any reason to explain this determination?
ENCOFFINATION: We just work very well together. I have a very distinct vision for this band and adding too many members will tarnish that vision.


FELIPE: Both participate in other musical projects, could describe them and indicate the relevance of music in your lives.
ENCOFFINATION: We both also play in FATHER BEFOULED, and GHOULGOTHA mainly. Music is very important to both of us. It consumes almost all of my free time.


FELIPE: What groups identified as a reference and influences each of the members? What musical groups are listening to the moment?
Encoffination: We prefer not to name direct influences on our music. Only the aura and coldness of death. ENCOFFINATION is the only influence on itself.


FELIPE: How is your daily life? Do you dedicate yourselves entirely to music? Do you work or study?
ENCOFFINATION: No, we both work regular jobs. We must to survive.


FELIPE: What is your opinion of the current political situation in your country? The presidential elections were ferocious and had an unexpected result. It seems that there has been a marked polarization among the population. It also adds to the current situation in the world, where social violence is a constant, what reflection do you have on this reality?
ENCOFFINATION: WJS may have a different answer but I do not participate in our politics.


FELIPE: How difficult is it to want to live life playing extreme music in the United States?
ENCOFFINATION: Extremely difficult unless you are CANNIBAL CORPSE or some popular Mall-Metal shit for girls.


FELIPE: Are you aware of the global scene of Doom? What groups stand out? Are you aware of any American group, and more particularly a Chilean?
ENCOFFINATION: I don’t keep up with Doom specifically, so I am not sure. As far as Chile goes, nothing tops SLAUGHTBBATH.


FELIPE: With which or what you consider relevant groups have been able to share the stage or a tour? Why highlights that or those groups?
ENCOFFINATION: My favorite memories are playing with EVOKEN, and touring with our brothers in FATHER BEFOULED and GHOULGOTHA.


FELIPE: You have been a rather prolific grouping in album publishing. How is the creation process? You are a duo, does anyone take the bulk of the work?
ENCOFFINATION: WJS records all the drums before guitars are written. Then I mold riffs to the drums. So it is a joint effort, but everything is 100% collaboration. One cannot exist without the other.


FELIPE: What does religion and the church mean to you? How do you explain life, death and existence?
ENCOFFINATION: I am a staunch atheist and I despise religion. It is all fabricated lies. There is nothing but darkness when you die.


FELIPE: How was the reception of your albums by specialized media and fans?
ENCOFFINATION: They have been positive.


FELIPE: Do you work on new compositions? Can you anticipate something?
ENCOFFINATION: We have a new split 12” recorded with SEMPITERNAL DUSK and we will do our 4th album 2017/2018.


FELIPE: We deeply appreciate the time, willingness and desire to want to participate in this space. Any news, music or news release, have open doors in this part of the world. This space is for personal reflection or a farewell. Thank you very much and goodbye.
ENCOFFINATION: Death will consume us all.
