PSAB: Where did the band name “Consumption” come from exactly?
Gage: Consumption was originally called Consumption of an Afterbirth. We changed the name because we wanted to take the project seriously. We couldn't be taken as seriously as we wanted with a name as ridiculous as Consumption of an Afterbirth.
Jordan: It was all a joke band back then.. Writing just stupid stuff but we wanted some seriousness involved now so it's since been changed.
Gage: The feedback was minimal, but this was to be expected. Regardless of the minimal responses, Jordan and I were both ecstatic to see so many people enjoying our music. We still get feedback from time to time.
Jordan: Yeah we haven't really had much, but from what we've had it's been awesome so far.
Gage: I honestly would have to say We Are Triumphant would be the most fitting label for Consumption. Jordan might feel differently.
Jordan: Totally agree.
Gage: Metal scene in Idaho sucks for the most part. But that makes for more devoted true die-hard metal heads.
Jordan: I wish I had the time and other resources to be able to be apart of the metal scene locally a little more. Some of the people I've met are great.
Gage: AngelMaker, Infant Annihilator, Chainsaw Disaster, and Rings of Saturn planted the Consumption seed in our minds.
Jordan: Yeah I'd also put older Chelsea Grin and Suicide Silence in there, and a mix of anything fast and stupid.
Gage: Brad Kraus. He's a chump but we love him.
Jordan: Just to stay tuned!
