Satan's Basement - More underground than the mole people.

Never setting limitations, it's often difficult to fit Satan's Basement into a single genre. The easiest way to classify it is to call it Experimental Extreme Metal.
Why this name?
Well when I first thought it up, I thought it sounded cool, thought it described the music well enough, therefore that's why I named this project what I did. I guess you could say Satan's Basement means one step lower than hell, but I didn't look that far into it when I first made it. But if you're going to look that far into it, just go with what I said.
Do you play live?
When I started off in 2005/2006 I played a show at my high school twice, and neither went too well. I yelled "f***" really loud when I screwed up, kept forgetting where I was in the song, and since this was back when I was in high school, it's surprising I never got in any trouble. I didn't realize how clearly you could hear the word "shit" through their P.A. system. I'm apparently the reason my school stopped having "Trunk Full of Funk," which was basically just a collection of crappy high school bands playing open mic night.

I didn't play live again until 2011, and that show was great. Since then I've decided to plan shows kind of sporadically.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's an easy way to spread music across the world to anyone who wants to hear it. Any band who makes music only for the money deserves to have their album pirated. If you do like an album though, buy it. Support artists at their shows and for their studio releases.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I honestly don't know. Everything started DIY and has continued on that way ever since.
Band History:
It was 2005/2006, my band The Violent Sheep had fallen apart, and I had given up on forming a band at that point. Everything started out on crappy equipment, never really tried to make my sound a specific subgenre, I just tried to make heavy music and write whatever I feel like.

2006 - Sludge Filled Wasteland
2007 - Cerebral Apocalypse
2008 - Rats in Satan's Cellar: Satan's Basement and Morgue Rat split CDR

This is my old official website that I hardly ever update anymore. I'd say stick to the Bandcamp, Facebook, and Hildsvfar Records sites for anything.
