What inspired you to start Cage Demise?

We couldn't find a drummer to jam with and just started hanging out as mates creating a few rifts, then it hit overdrive.

How did you come up with the name Cage Demise?

Matt: Its spawned from our oldest song Rudi's Demise which has been around before the band had even formed.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Project Hope fundraiser in Paraparaumu, it went off! Plus free food and beer all night! Not to mention raising funds for a great cause!

MySpace, Facebook, Email etc and play a heap of shows!!!!!!

What rumour would you like to start about Cage Demise?

When we were recording our album in a secret Taihape location it is rumored to be believed that we set off the eruption of Mt Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland with our extreme brutality as it happened at exactly the same time!!! Now thats BRUTAL!
