Interview with Kristofer/ Livet Som Insats!

      Hey Kristofer, did you expect such good feedback on the Check Your Grind album? People say that you fill the void after Nasum and Sayyadina, and that you’re one of the top Swedish grindcore bands at the moment. How do you deal with this?
      Hey Andy! Haha not really, we were kinda prepared that a lot of people would be confused about the cover. (That’s maybe a reason that we choose to do it. To provoke by not using the “classic” black and white theme) but actually some people think that the cover is the best part of the album and the music is shit. Hehe.
      One of Swedens top grindcore acts at the moment? Well, we don’t have so much competition in that department really? There aren’t so many active bands out there now a days? But I can live with being in the top with the old farts in Gadget.
      Living the DIY way is very honest, and as a band you’re doing everything you can in this area. Recording. Releasing. Artwork. Distributing. Did you chose to live this way as a band, or did it simply come about naturally?
      Well, to put it simple. We are very restless souls. We don’t have the nerves to spectate. We gotta get some action now.

Interview with Oula and Tomi/ Death Toll 80k!

      Death Toll 80k shows harsh realities with sensitive, raw and brutal grindcore attitude. Zoltan made my day with news about this interview, because bands like DK80k needs attention and support./ Andy

      Hi Oula and Tomi, how are you, are you ready to answer my questions? How often receive Death Toll 80K interview- requests, and do you like answering more and more stupid questions haha? Do you know anything about my country, Hungary?
      O: Hello! We haven’t done that many interviews actually, but lately it seems that we’ve got more requests in quite a short period of time. I’ve been to Hungary once, but that was just driving through it on a tour some years ago so I can’t say I know too much about it. Lately I’ve mostly followed how the government these is trying to close the borders from the refugees. What is happening there right now is just horrible.
      T: I know Ferenc Puscas and that finnish and hungarian languages are related to each other.
      As far as I know this is the first hungarian Death Toll 80K interview, so I’d like to start with a short background info. How did you get together, who’s idea was to form this band, did you already know each other? So, can you summarize the band’s history for us?
      O: Me and Tomi started the band in early 2005 after our previous death metal broke up. We had got to know each other maybe a couple of years before that through some mutual friends, it was that time when you met someone with a similar taste in music you pretty much became friends instantly. I think I finally wanted to start singing then and was really into goregrind at that time while Tomi’s idea was to play Brazilian thrash metal. We asked some friends to join in, and the first stage of the want was some kind of mix between primitive grind and Celtic Frost. Our first bass player quit pretty soon, and my brother replaced him for the next few years, but it was after Jori became our drummer in 2007 (he had actually played in that previously mentioned death metal band before and I was in a goregrind band called Marttyyrioperaatio with him) that DT80k became what it is today, it was almost a totally different band before that.
      We made our first European tour in 2008, and after that we have made three longer tours there (with Sakatat, Powercup and Perikato) and a couple shorter trips. Maryland Deathfest in 2014 was our first and this far only gig outside Europe. In 2009 our current bass player Ville joined the band after filling in for a couple of shows, but that was also a really easy line-up change as he also was our friend long before that.

Interview with Alex/ Deboned!

      It's a perfect time to introduce you fresh flesh of Canadian grindcore underground scene. Zoltan made chat chat with Alex, vocalist of the Deboned. Enjoy.
      Hey guys, my name is Zoli, greetings from Hungary & from EveryDayHate grindblog! Let’s start with an introduction. Have you all been in other bands previously, or Deboned is your first band? How, when and why did you started Deboned, can you give us a background info?
      Hey Zoli! First of all, I’d like to thank you for the interview. It means a lot to us. To answer your question, each one of us already had a band before but nothing that was recorded so it’s safe to say that Deboned is our first band. Me, Etienne and Dispa had a Death Metal band called Exciser back in high school and Yan had a band called Unholy Matter before he moved to our town.
      Who’s idea was the name? I believe you aren’t vegetarians, but why only fillets without bone? What about a good beef shin stew, or lamb chops, you don’t like them?
      I actually brought the name to the table but I found it in a Carcass solo title. I guess I was reading their lyrics and I found out about this word and I thought it would fit the kind of music we wanted to do. I think it’s from the song ’Pedigree Butchery’.
      Ok, fuck the cuisine, go ahead. Recently you had a line-up change with the departure of bassist Pierre-Alexandre. What was the reason for him to quit, and did you already found the new member?
      Dispa, as we like to call him, left the band recently for some personal reasons. I think he wanted to concentrate on school and he didn’t had enough time on his hands to play with us anymore. We’re still good friends and always will be even tho it pains us to know that we won’t share the stage with him again. As for the new member, we already had some plans to take my friend, Rudy, as a second guitarist since Etienne is moving to another town so we could still pratice when he isn’t available. By chance, Rudy is mostly a bassist so we asked him if he wanted to join in as a bassist instead and he was way more happy with this!

Interview with Miloslav Čurby Urbanec/ Obscene Extreme Festival!

      I was 15 times on Obscene Extreme Festival, I had a blast every time. This is the unusual place. I made a chat chat with Miloslav Urbanec vel Čurby. Feel the vibe and see you on Trutnov battlefield.
      hey Curby, I'm glad that you've found some time for this chat. I believe you're busy with your label and with booking bands for OEF. How are you doing this? Seriously, I remember OEF from the times when stage was on trailer, totally DIY and now OEF is in Asia, America, Australia and still Europe. What's your main intention?
      Well, you're more than right, with another addition to our already big family gang in November it's crazy life, simply live fast or die haha!!!
      I just do the same thing like back in times, support my favourite music, support my favourite bands...it's quite easy like that...I'm still trying to keep the ticket price for the festival as low as possible and my main goal is to prepare a perfect weekend for everyone... I must add it's really more and more difficult to do a real underground festival and to have no sponsors at all...I still believe this way with the support from our loyal fans is much better than to lick some fat ass in big companies...and I know our supporters know this.

Death is coming! Streaming and Interviewing THE DOG!

      After releasing two 7’ EPs in 2014 and 2015 The Dog has recorded its first full lenght album. It contains 15 songs, inspired by aggressive and furious classic hardcore scene outfits like Negative Approach, D.R.I, Spazz, Trash Talk, Despise You!, or even Kickback, with gloomy and dark lirycs. Lost generation music, for the people who feel like shit and don’t know exactly why.
      Keywords: lost hope, broken dreams, lack of satisfaction, stagnation.
      "The Devil Comes At Night" was recorded during two days in December 2015 at Maq Records and then mixed and mastered by Haldor Grubnberg of Satanic Audio. It includes one track with guest appearance from Artur Rumiński (Thaw, Furia, ARRM).
CD will be released this summer by EveryDayHate and MC by Drop Out Records.
Song premiere #1/ The Constant Factor

      Hey, I have known you guys for a long time but I think that many people around don't know anything about your band, so let's start from the beginning. What was the main reason for starting The Dog? It's seems like it's a result of your frustration with previous bands, that weren't so active and they simply lacked luck.
      IGOR: We have known each other for a very long time. As you said our previous bands started to be a little bit less active (We Are Idols is actually no longer active) so we came up with an idea of the new band. Łukasz and Maciek played a few rehearsals. The music they’ve created turned out to be fast and furious hardcore, which we all love. Then they invited me and Dawid and that’s how The Dog was born.
      I bet you will hate this question soon, but I'm the first and I feel free to ask - how the idea for the name of your band came up? I'm not saying it's a bad name, I love dogs, many people do. Does it have something to do with the names of your previous bands? Just asking.
      I: Piotrek - the guitarist of our previous band We Are Idols - once mentioned that “The Dogs” would be a great name for the band. Then I got the the idea. The Dog is the word which refers to many both positive and negative meanings. In Polish language it sounds a lot more massive and gruesome than in English and that’s the way we think of it. In Poland, you know, if you hear by chance that there is a band called The Dog, you certainly know that they don’t play reggae. Using it to call someone can be even an insult. And of course we also love dogs.

Interview with 13/ Sick of Stupidity!

      hey 13, before we start talking about Sick of Stupidity I would like to ask you why have you crucified 18-years old Jesus Cröst? Is this is the main reason of starting a new band? I have feeling that Sick of Stupidity is a continuation of your sarcasm started years ago by Jesus Cröst.
      Hey Andy, Thanks for the opportunity to do a interview for EDH! Yep, Jesus Cröst is dead. Sick of Stupidity is the shit now a days. I don’t want to spend much words on the JC breakup. We’re still good friends, but just have other priorities in our lives now than this band. A pity we stopped a thing we got started in 1996. But we reached maximum as a 2 piece powerviolence band I think. It was the right time to call it a day.
      Sick of Stupidity (SOS) has nothing to do with sarcasm I think. This band got positive vibes. All is easygoing, although things were going real fast the last year. We got asked for a lot of shows, festivals, tours, splits etc. I’m kinda reborn after the death of Jesus Cröst. I enjoy doing gigs and everything around it more than I did the last couple of years with JC. It feels good.

      Sick of Stupidity's songs are mix of best elements of grindcore, death metal and powerviolence. For me both of your bands have similar approach and this is even more interesting because now you're doing vocals only. Do you have anything to do with making off process?
      Bruno and Lemmy started the band in 2014 and played a few gigs before I joined. So there already was a 15 minute live set. Some people think I’m the founder of this band, but that’s not true. Lemmy and Bruno are the founders of SOS. When I joined, after being asked by Bruno to play bass guitar, I wrote a couple of songs we play live now. The songs I write are more stop and go powerviolence with a kind of new skool feel. That’s my stylo. Bruno and Lemmy (both more technically skilled than I ever was) are more into old skool grind like Repulsion, Terrorizer etc.
      When they come up with a new song expect overwhelming Pete Sandoval blastbeats with fast as fuck PLF riffage. The mix of old and new skool works perfect for all of us I think. Especially with the dual vocals. Zoran with extra ordinary low Gutteral growls and me with high-pitched Squeals and screams.

Interview with Boka/ Ratos De Porão!

      My buddie Carlos James chooses only topnotch bands from Brasil. This time he chatted with Boka, Ratos De Porão's drummer and owner of Peculio Discos label. Enjoy!

      What, when and how was the first moment that you found yourself drowned in the rotting waters of the underground? When did you see that the everything was far bound form the things you were listening to at the time? What was your favorite record? What was your first gig ever?
      Well, i have some memories when i was kid, but when i started playing drums in a band (Psychic Possessor) in 1989, i was listening to music, tape trading, buyng records, getting fanzines from all over the world i felt i was making part of something special and it would last for life. Can´t remember my 1st shows, but probably some small home town band some better known brazilina bands were playing here, like Sepultura, Dorsal Atlantica, MX, Ratos de Porão (before i joined), Lobotomia, etc. Fisr record i bought was AC/DC "If you want blood...".
