Interview with Rado and Jan/ Sedem Minut Strachu!

    Hello guys, welcome to the pages of Blast fanzine, from Hungary. First of all, can you tell us everything about the origins of 7MS? You mentioned on your bandcamp page, that the band was formed in an Exhumed gig, and it sounds good. Did you maybe know each other from long time, how the lineup has completed? Introduce all of the members please, we want to know everything.
   Hi and thanks for your interest. Well, if you have read our bandcamp than you know everything. We are good old friends, the idea was mine and I did not even for a second think about any other person than Richard and Jan for this band. I was like walking the street and you know, suddenly it klicked... and 7M$ was born. Seriously. Few days later I’m at that Exhumed gig explaining to Richard and Jan they are members of 7M$. Jan, because he is a great drummer and we need him so two guys with absolutely no guitar skills can make bass noise, scream and pose in front. And Richard because he knows to pose well and was the most active guy in the scene around. And they both like dirty lo-fi grindcore so are the most close to my musical taste, and that’s very important for a band, if you ask me. None of us is vegan, nazi and pro-life, each of us love Repulsion, beer and Pacho.
   What was your main goal when you first started to practice and writing noise together? The style and the concept was clear from the very beginning, as you mentioned: „to rip off and recycle noises of two of the best bands ever: Seven Minutes Of Nausea and Fear Of God”. What is it about their noise that appeals to you?

   I’ve always loved dirty, raw, extreme grind/ noisecore and I always felt that the musicianship is not at all important for this stuff, I mean, I don’t say that if you know how to play your fuckin’ expensive BC Rich you can’t play good grindcore, but if you love it, really love it and feel it, you can play the most aggressive shit with three strings and no knowledge of any fuckin C-major at all, that’s what I believe. We never tuned bass and I can’t remember the most primitive Nirvana two chords song if you show me, fuck that! I better headbang with two fingers on two string to some Motorhead track or just scream and jump around my room to some old Arsedestroyer shit. I just want to bang, to pose, to play fast and loud, I have no time to watch my fingers to not make mistakes during some average metalic grindcore shit, I want extreme music to be nasty, raw, dirty and as radiounfriendly as possible. Well, you see now what I love about 7MON? And Fear Of God? Just in case you don’t know, Sedem Minut Strachu means Seven Minutes Of Fear in english. Oh, and the very first goal when we started was to get rid of the shame and to learn to follow 1-2- 3-4 rhythm.

Interview with Gorillaz/ Grassroll!

   It's first interview for GCP by Leonidas Douras, he chose to talk with his friends from Grassroll, enjoy. Andy
   Hail Gorillaz! Congratulations finally you attack the studio to record a full length album! So whats the deal with Grassroll, why it took you so long to make a full album?
   Hey there! Hope you are doing well in Poland! As you know first of all we didn’t have the money and after that we had to manage our time because we all work (unfortunately!!!). Moreover we had so many tracks that we had to rehearsal many times in order to have them completely ready so to record them.
   Give us some details about the album.
   We haven’t decided yet if all of the tracks will be included in the album or split them. Music and lyrics is more aggressive this time combined (always) with the stupidity we hide inside us… The drums have been recorded in the Tube Sound Recordings studio by Jimmys Tube, mixing and vocals recording will take place at the Soundflakes Studio by Kostas “CallMeLazy” and guitars/ bass will be recorded by us (ass) and our LOVELY sound engineer Nikos “MykonosPatiknos” at our place.
   What are your plans about live shows?
   Well, first of all, we are waiting for our dearest drummer and student to come back from Spain as he left us for 6 months in order to “study” there. So at this right moment we just imagine live shows and dreaming the day of his return (cry…). After that we’ll try to play as much live shows as we can and we’ll try to tour around Greece with our friends! ( ;) ).

Interview with Leonidas/ Stheno!

Hello guys, my name is Zoli, greetings from EveryDayHate grindblog! Let’s start with a small introduction, how and when did you get together? Who does what, introduce the current line up, and the ex-members as well please.
Hey Zoli! We start in December of 2013 in Volos/Greece. We just went to have some fun to the studio but really soon this fun became a band and here we go, this is how Stheno was born. Now we are a three-piece band so to the live shows we are not using bass guitar, for the album "Liberty crawls in waste" Leonidas was responsible for guitars and bass as well. We started as a typical fou-piece line up but after the first EP our bassist left the band, another guy joined us he record the 2 splits with Grassroll and World Downfall, but again after all we continue three of us.
Are you all long-time musicians and have you played extreme music before this band? Do you have (or had in the past) any other bands or side projects?
Yes, Vaggelis and Vaggelis (voicals-drums) were playing together to Unfit Earth, was a crust band from Greece and Leonidas was in Bedlam, a grindcore band from Greece, not active since 2003. Also we passed through many bands of punk/ thrash/ crust/ death metal some are still active some not.

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.
