Clay exclusively answers to Vishal this evening.


Vishal - What are you doing nowadays?
Clay
- Smoking a lot of weed first and foremost, as usual. Recordin my new CD right now called "Plundering into Vaginal Demolition" and that piece is lookin absurd nasty. True American porn.

Vishal - Can i get the story of your band and biography? What is the meaning of Cemetery Rapist exactly means to the band?
Clay
- Yeah man I started doing my one-man thing here in 2004. I started playin heavy music in 2001 as a vocalist and drummer. I just fucking hate people man...I don't get along with mugs on a real personal basis so, fuck it. Started doin my own thing and so far, sooo good. I didn't start playin my pornoslam and doin my now infamous vocals until about 2006 though; that's when shit got real and I realized I could for real make some moves in the underground.

Vishal - What are the lyrical themes you use in your song?gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..
Clay
- Sexual depravity for the most part...that and drugs. I love drugs and sexual depravity.

Vishal - How it feels to be in a Underground band? And for how many years you are in this scene?
Clay
- This summer I'll be 10 years deep in the underground; 8 years as Cemetery Rapist. It feels great man. People sign they lifes away on those big label contracts. I don't even fux with most of the labels in the underground, as far as contracts are concerned. I own everything I do. Fuck everyone.

Vishal - Which are the bands that have influenced your band most?
Clay
- Thats a long list...I'm more influenced by individuals positively. I've been influenced negatively by a lot of bands and it's made me a better person I think. I NEVER EVER treat my fans like shit. I've had some of my idols snub they nose at me and then, years later (once I got some street credit) try to invite me to they house and shit....fuuuuck them motherfuckers man.

Vishal - What are the future plans of Cemetery Rapist? any tours, releases, recordings etc.
Clay
- Total takeover. Way to busy to name everything...peep my facebook or somethin for the details fam! www.facebook.com/cornfieldslam

Vishal - What is your opinion on sites posting Underground Materials?
Clay
- Amazing. The underground can only support itself.


Vishal - How do you feel about the classifications in metal? like deathcore, metalcore and other subgenres..
Clay
- Waste of time. 2 catagories only: music you like and music you don't.

Vishal - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Clay
- I hate society waaaay more than they hate me.

Vishal - Ok, what do you want to tell those peoples who rips off the band hard work and illegally downloads their music?
Clay
- Those mugs can fuck off. People think we're out here making tons of cash and shit, and that couldn't be further than the truth. These bands NEEDS this money to keep the music flowing...don't be a fucking cocksucker.

Vishal - Beside Cemetery Rapist do you have any other projects too?
Clay
- Hells yeah. Check my other one-man band Fecalized Rectal Sperm Spewage at www.facebook.com/frssfilth

Vishal - Is it hard surviving in underground Scene?
Clay
- Yeah I wont lie...Some people would argue I have it easier now but, thats all just opinion. The bottom line is I still use all my own money for all this shit, and the merch/tours/recordings are getting nothing but more expensive. What I am lucky enough to have is a diehard fanbase who knows that I'm puttin 110% into these tunes, and they support me in the process.

Vishal - Metal has to be underground or metal has to go mainstream, what's your opinion?
Clay
- Mainstream? Huh?

Vishal - What is your opinion on the current state of underground metal?
Clay
- I won't even lie..I'm so busy with CxRx shit I don't really dig into whats poppin now-a-days. All I can say is I keep it all the way real and things are decent for me. I'm sure some other sucka ass dudes got all kinda negative shit to say but, whatever. I hate the state of a lot of things; all I can do is do me.


Vishal - Which is the album you want to take to your grave?
Clay
- Paul Wall: Aint No 401k for A Hustla
