Ectoplasm is a Taiwan/United States deathcore project formed earlier this year featuring members of American bands Abyss of Gehenna and Taiwan bands Solus and Kai.
“Our first release is about tales leading up to, during, and after the First Frontier War. In these alternate tellings, the natives are aware of the arrival of the English Colonies. They are also aware of the famine, disease, rapes, pillaging, and other atrocities they will bring. Instead of allowing this, the natives call upon their gods and spirits for help. With rumors of a wendigo-like creature making its presence known through the possession of individual natives who may be about to lose their lives in battle.”
In terms of how a band featuring members from opposite corners of the world operate, “For our writing process, our guitarist Matt usually comes up with a full demo, then he sends it to both Kai and Murray, Kai will come up with lyrics and the general theme while Murray will rewrite drum parts. We will be releasing our debut EP somewhere around the end of this year.”
