What inspired the name of the band? What are your influences and are they the same as when you started out?

At the time my idea was to have the most ridiculous name I could come up with in the moment and it was Stinkbrute, The Gruesome Exchange of Bodily Fluids That Turned Into a Bile Duct Titan, later I decided to stick with just Stinkbrute and the rest for the name of the first album. With all my ideas coming together for the project and turning it into something more serious, there was another big reason I wanted this name, and It has to do with how little we think of animals, in specific farmed animals. When I think of Stink-Brute all I can imagine is a pig or a cow in horrible condition, dirty all around, with anger towards humans, and after we put them in those conditions we have the audacity to call them dirty, disgusting or stinky.

A lot of things influence me on a daily basis, but for this project in specific, I would say my influences are bands like Napalm Death, Wormrot and Analepsy.

Other than that I read a lot of violent manga like Berserk and Chainsaw Man so I would say those are even more persistent influences to me since I tend to get inspired to write music by things other than music. On that note, I watch a lot of documentaries about the animal agriculture industry and the atrocities humans cause upon animals, so those issues are always on my mind and inevitably transpire in my music.

How do you approach songwriting?

Usually I start with instruments and then themes, so I usually jam with my bass or guitar and see what I can do instrumentally in a song. Then I start writing lyrics and that’s where my themes come in. As I mentioned before, I’m big into animal rights, so some themes on the first album, and pretty much everything after that I’m composing at the moment, are about animals raised for food and the horrible lives they have to go through in order to fulfil human’s taste pleasure for 5 minutes a meal.

Why do you write the sort of music that you do?

Initially there wasn’t a big reason for me to compose in this style of music besides me just liking Death Metal and Grindcore, but I later realised that this genre lets me go into any topic I want regardless of how aggressive and gruesome it may be. I can also be very emotionally invested in my performance, with screaming I can almost accurately represent what the lyrical subject is experiencing. For example, in the song Cow Molesters, I want to portray my outrage at the dairy industry, so, with screaming, fast drums and heavy guitars that is my preferred way to show my defiance towards those disgusting practices.

How do you decide what songs to perform live?

I am yet to play live, I still haven’t found a band to play with.

What plans do you have for the future?

In the future I hope to be doing concerts, tours and more music videos. I am working on another Full Length album and a few splits at the moment. But the plans are just to keep making music and calling out the animal agriculture industry and the atrocities they cause every single day.
