Recently, DutchMetalManiac’s Tim van Velthuysen interviewed Inhuman Condition’s guitarist Taylor Nordberg.
Hey, how are you?
I’m doing alright, thank you for asking.
Can you tell us something about the history of Inhuman Condition?
Well, Jeramie and I were playing in Massacre in the fall of 2019 and we wrote 14 songs that were going to be the new Massacre album, but we had to leave the situation and decided to keep the songs alive and form a new band. We had been chatting with Terry and he seemed to really love the music so it was a no-brainer to have him on board!
For people not knowing Inhuman Condition (yet), how would you describe your music yourself?
I think it’s a nice blend of late 80s/early 90s death metal and thrash, with some sprinkles of NYHC and Celtic Frost thrown in. In your face, aggressive, you know, all the words that every band describes their album! haha.
When someone doesn’t know Inhuman Condition yet and you can choose one of your songs to present yourself, which song would that be?
That is difficult…we have a sound but within that sound there are so many different moods, but I guess the opening track Euphoriphobia is a pretty good representation of the band. It’s a ripper, and has a cool mosh bridge, and frantic guitar solos.
What makes Inhuman Condition unique?
I think it’s unique because Jeramie’s vocals don’t sound like anyone else. I think the songs are super catchy as well, which is lacking in a lot of death metal bands around. It’s all about the riff, man!
Any future plans you can already tell us something about?
Well, we have our first show with Deicide here in Florida on April 17th, which is sold out and should be totally nuts! Aside from that, we are anxious to get this album out, plan some shows, get out these music videos, and start working on the next record!
Any upcoming gigs for Inhuman Condition? Maybe coming to The Netherlands?
If you book us, we will come!
How do you think your life would be without music?
To be honest: meaningless. Music is my life, so I can’t really see much of a life without it.
What advice would you give to young and starting bands?
Don’t ever listen to the grumpy guys talking trash about “local bands”. EVERYONE was in a local band at one point! Don’t ever give up, be a nice person, roll with the punches, work hard, WORK HARD, and WORK HARD!
Thanks for your answers! Is there anything you want to say to DutchMetalManiac’s readers?
Thanks for your time, preorder the album, and support your favorite bands/artists!
“Let the music do the talking.”
“Live long and prosper.”
I’m Tim van Velthuysen and I started DutchMetalManiac back in 2014. I’m 29 years old and I live in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Of course, I like metal, but I can also appreciate other musical styles.
In addition to DutchMetalManiac I also have a personal website on which I’ll post various things that won’t fit on DutchMetalManiac, but might be interesting for you as well. It’s in Dutch though.
