Interview with Miss Deceased (MC) from Crypt Magazine (December 2006):
MD: What are your personal influences?
Whiplasher: We have such fucked up lives, it’s all about our experiences and the shit that’s happened and affected us over the years.
Nightmare Industries: I grew up listening to KISS, WASP and bands like that, so that influenced me a bit.
MD: On the new album ‘Termination Bliss,’ would you say your influences have changed since your earlier album ‘Synthetic Generation?’
Whiplasher: No because what we are doing now to what we what we were doing back then is the same. The albums are only slightly different because of what we were feeling at the time. We are not really into music.
MD: What made you want to be in a band?
Nightmare Industries: I first thought about being in a band when I was 8 or 9 years old, when I started listening to KISS and similar bands.
Whiplasher: My thoughts on being in a band started when I began writing to be creative and to express myself. It’s something that I started to do when I was about 10 years old. It’s our way to talk about experiences. It was never about the fame.
