Body without blood – interview with Exemia

Updated: 21 March, 2016 Created: 21 March, 2016 By:Adalbert Category: Interviews

There is certainly a reason behind the recently increasing presence of Mexican dark electro acts on Halotan internet website and on Halotan samplers. While the whole genre became rather predicticable and petrified, Mexican bands constantly deliver highest quality industrial music. This time we interview Fako (real name: Fabián Morelos Aldana), the man behind Exemia, project from Tijuana.  Since 2003 he experimented with different types of industrial music and recently published excellent album “Cryptobiosis”, which was reviewed on our site (give this album a try – it will blow you away!). Fako gave us really extensive interview, but fortunately it’s as interesting as it’s long!

Adalbert: Firstly I want to ask you about the beginnings of the band, since not many people know its history. Why did you started to create music?

Fako: Before Exemia, I played guitars and vocals on a few metal/punk bands. At the same time I was trying to learn how to make electronic music of my own. My intention was to create music in the same way someone would take a picture hoping to be remembered by the present and future generations that may like what I do.

[2003-2004] – This is when the project was born, I started doing early electronic music attempts under the name of Exemia. Another vocalist joined Exemia as both of the band members of the project started working on a guitar driven fusion.
[Demos: “Estática” *old demo]

[2004-2005] – The project performs live for the first time focusing on the sound of industrial-rock and dark electro.
[Demos: “Violencia” *old demo]

[2005- 2006] – Exemia returns to be a one man band once again focusing on post-industrial subgenres. This time period was the inspiration for these tracks: “Después de Morir”, “Trancisión Dolorosa”, “Disgraced and Nighterrors”.
[Demos: “Nuclear Circus Wasteland” *old demo]

[2007 – 2009] – These were some of the busiest years for production, the EQ improvement was a bit more noticeable, but this time the aim was to make a fusion between psytrance, hardcore and industrial dance replacing the vocals with synthwork and distorted percussion to fit the mood of the bassdriven repertoires.
[Albums: “Morgue Crew”, “Failure”, “The Synesthetic Experience”, “Locate and Delete“]

Exemia, as the medical term, is a condition in which a considerable portion of the blood is temporarily removed from general circulation

[2010-2012] – During this time period I made a drum & bassy/electro repertoire different from the usual Exemia. After the experiment I went blending bits of industrial with goatrance 909 Kicks & 303 Synthesizers. Then went further into the experimentation of the mixture of psytrance and industrial which remains as Exemia’s main fusion.
[Albums: “Don’t let them in”, “Post Industrial Revolution”, “One Man Army“, “Mutación de Géneros”]

[2013-2014] – Feeling a similarity within the elements of the genres, rhytmic noise and dark psytrance become the main focus of the project as Exemia and Audiocentesis join forces and form Aim&Execute.
[Albums: “Trancegressive Fiction”, “Computer Hate“, “Dark Rearrangements”]

[2014-2015] – Released a darksynth/synthwave album while finishing the trilogy of “Dark Rearrangements”. At the same time I worked on “Cryptobiosis” album until the end of the year 2015. [Albums: “Robocorpse“, “Remixed”, “DR2″, “DR3″, “Cryptobiosis”].

Adalbert: What about the name of the band, “Exemia” – does it have any meaning?

Fako: A body without blood: EX (Greek for “out of”) plus AIMA (Greek for “blood”). Exemia, as the medical term, is a condition in which a considerable portion of the blood is temporarily removed from general circulation.
