Genocide Pact vocalist/guitarist Tim Mullaney and drummer Connor
Donegan discuss forming the band after meeting through playing in hardcore/powerviolence/grindcore bands. The spark was the fact that they were both wearing Morbid Angel shirts, so they decided to start a band reminiscent of the 'Two from the Vault' series CDs they had (Suffocation, Obituary, Pestilence), Carcass and other old-school death metal favourites. They talk about their love for Necrophagist, Cryptopsy, Gorguts and Nile growing up but explain why they didn't go the technical death metal route, as they already had to up their chops for the band, anyway. Interview conducted April 19, 2018, while the band were in Toronto on tour.
