Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the guitar tuning you use?

We use standard A tuning (low-A D G C E A), and have used it throughout the history. The demos seem to have it a bit lower, as, IIRC, I used a pitch pipe only occasionally, and we just tuned the guitars together to be in same tune.

New album, please?

Possibly. We’re currently composing new songs, but whether they come out individually in the net, or on split 7″/10″ with selected bands, or on an EP or a full-length, that remains to be seen. Something’s happening, though, finally!

Does Antti exhale or inhale when growling?

Despite the rumors, Antti has to both exhale and inhale during growling. The noise, though, is produced only when exhaling.

Questions Nobody Ever Asked

What’s this identity crisis of the band that’s shown by irregular use of “I” and “we”?

I, Antti Boman, type everything you see on our pages and media. I pretend to be “we”, but forget it occasionally. We am sorry for the confusion.

Where’s that beautiful old message board you had at An Entity? It had so much fantastic info, and I miss it more than I miss my mother who I might have “accidentally” killed.

Don’t worry! We have (mostly) restored it for you and your mother’s relatively calm body! Everything can be now found at The old An Entity Demilich message board.

Why does “Uncontrollable Regret of the Rotting Flesh” have plural “they stimulate you” when telling about singular “face”?

In Finnish “face” is “kasvot”, which is the plural form of “kasvo”. We Finns have many faces, never just one. So, it was a not-so-very-rare mistake with my English. Like the whole “regret of”, which made the name more interesting that it was intended to be.

Before the show in Helsinki on February 2017, you advertised that “We also have a very special surprise for those who are able to attend!” What was it?

It was Ville Koistinen, the Nespithe bassist. He played Inherited Bowel Levitation with us. It was the first time the Nespithe version of Demilich was together since Eskilstuna 1993, and we don’t know if that will ever happen again.

What are the names of the creatures in the cover picture of Nespithe? They sure must have names!

You’re absolutely right! Everyone has to have a name in this world! And theirs! So, let’s have a competition for naming the poor fellows!
