Interview with Jay and Robert/ INVERTEBRATE!

      Hailing from Oakland, California, Invertebrate delivers intense, agressive grinding tunes since 2012. I spoke with drummer Jay Peacock and bass player Robert Avery about the band's origins, about their split with Meloow Harsher, as well as about influences and upcoming records, among many other interesing topics. Enjoy! Zoltan Zsiga/ Blast Fanzine/ GCP.
      Greetings from EveryDayHate Grindblog and thank you for this interview! Can you please tell us the biography of Invertebrate and explain, how the band came together? Can you introduce the members? Which other bands, projects are you also known for?
      Greetings! Jay (drums) here, and thanks for having us! INVERTEBRATE started with Donovan and I (Jay) back in 2012, I was playing in a Death Metal band called Ominous Ruin and he was freshly out of touring with Buried at Birth. We both wanted to start a project with influences of Iron Lung, Early Pig Destroyer, and so on. A couple years later after being a two piece, we came across our bass player Rob, who is from Badr Vogu, and Self Inflicted, to name a few.
      Rob: I play bass and do vocals, I was in STRAINS OF THE APOCALYPSE(Grind), FARTICUS(wierdo sf band), I was a founding member of BADR VOGU, and SELF INFLICTED(the bay area version in 2008).

Exclusive stream of new Massgrav's song "Vem har tjallat för chefen?" and interview with Ola and Norse!

      Proudly presents the loudest band from Sweden aka Stockholm Rockers: Massgrav! The release date of their new album is on Saturday, 28th of October 2017. Exclusive stream of new Massgrav's song "Vem har tjallat för chefen?" and interview with Ola and Norse by Andrzej Dumała/ Grindcore Propaganda.
      During the 21 years of existence Massgrav have were a lot of masks and used the words of others, what's behind the Stockholm Rockers masks?
      Ola: I would say this started as an inside joke about the super pretentions (and similar photos) that the Swedish act the Knife used quite some time ago and somehow it evolved into this album cover. We used the same masks and clothes when we did a "rock video" (long story) last year and the photos from that looked great. Unfortunately, they were all lost, so we decided to recreate that photo shoot this year. I'm not 100% sure what you mean by that we have worn a lot of masks throughout the years though, I think this is the first and it's a damn hassle so don't expect us to do a Dr Living Dead anytime soon.
      Norse: And to be honest, even if we're a bunch of handsome motherfuckers, we're not that pretty that our faces should be on a record cover.
      But as you can see, our perfectly shaped bodies are all there to give you maximum pleasure.
      O: Let me take this opportunity to remind us all that Norses face was actually on the cover of the "stampa takten..." ep, so I guess he's the exception to that rule.
      N: Well, that was during my modeling days. Now I'm uglier and more disgusting.

Interview with Gurdip Singh Narang/ Gutslit!

      I first heard Gutslit when they started out in 2007 and they have come a long way in the past decade. The band has released 2 albums and toured Europe multiple times despite line up changes. Their second album Amputheatre via Transcending Obscurity records is out now and it sounds great. The album is huge leap ahead of their previous album Skewered in The Sewer with regards to songwriting and production. Find out more about their recent European tour, Amputheatre and upcoming plans in my interview with bassist Gurdip Singh Narang below. Peter 'Trendcrusher' K.

      Hi Gurdip, you recently got back from your Brutal Grooves Grinding Moves Tour tour across Europe alongside Stillbirth, Splattered and Carnivore Diprosopus. How did it go?
      Hey Peter, the tour went perfect. The shows were packed, a few sold out, the traveling between the cities was smooth. Perfect planning and execution. Probably the best tour we have played till date.
      Amputheatre is about the different forms of torture. What was the inspiration behind it?
      I have personally been a fan of psychopath killers. Torture devices just come along with it. They even add to the charm of innovation and magnificent detailing. The creators not only made them to hurt someone, but also designed them in a way to extract information, confess crimes and ultimately kill them slowly, while enjoying their screams and call for help. Humans are known to inflict pain. Kingdoms and dynasties were known to leave behind torture trails and fear in the minds of people to win over more land quickly. We just talk about that.

Interview with Logan/ Backslider!

      Power Violence it's fun with tunes, sometimes super fast, other times sludgy... If you're looking for unusual solutions in extreme music, take the chance to see Backslider live during the European tour with Wake. Interview with Logan, Andrzej Dumała.
      Hey, What caused birth of Backslider?
      Backslider formed in the summer of 2008 when myself and former drummer Patrick Forrest decided to start jamming based on our shared musical tastes, which back then were significantly more limited than they are now.
      How could you describe Power Violence as a genere, ideology and way of living?
      I can't speak for the other members of Backslider but I personally don't believe in ideologies representing certain genres of music or vice versa. I can say what initially attracted me to the early "Power Violence" bands of the West Coast was that they all sounded totally different and unlike anything I had heard before and the negativity they were able to convey. I think that was a matter of time and place and therefore won't refer to current bands, or Backslider, as Power Violence.

Interview with Rob/ WAKE!

      Wake straddling a perfect line between cohesion and chaos, violence and sheer aggression, massive groove and raw Grindcore, it's a fuckin' execution. Beware, they're coming to Europe for 2 weeks tour with Backslider, check the interview with Rob and tour schedule. Andrzej Dumała.

       Hey Rob, since 26th of February/ the premier of Sowing the Seeds of a Worthless Tomorrow album your touring, how is rolling the life on tour? Where did you played so far and where was the best audience?
      Things are alright, man. We've played quite a few shows around Sowing.. We've done shows across Canada, US and Mexico. It's taken awhile but this will be our first time playing these songs live in Europe... It's hard to believe it's been 3 years since we toured there with Primitive Man. I'd probably say Saskatoon, Saskatchewan or Tuscon, Az have been my favourite shows of the last little while. Our release show in Calgary was pretty sick as well. haha

Interview with Teabags/ BOAK!

      BOAK, shortly after formed in Aberdeen in 2013, has become one of Europe’s leading powerviolence group. Don't miss them out if you are looking for fast, angry music with a serious message. All of their releases are lessons from violence. Powerviolence. Teabags was so kind to answer my question, so enjoy our interview with this great band! Zsiga Zoltan.

      It might be a little bit boring for you, but to start the interview, could you please tell us everything about the band's origins, and about how did you get together? What made you want to play this kind of angry, fast, pissed off grinding tunes?
      We're from Aberdeen, Scotland. I knew Ewan from a few of his other bands, but then saw him doing drum covers of Punch and Converge songs so asked if he wanted to do a fast band. Then we got Ben to play bass cos he always wore Weekend Nachos and ACxDC merch. We all liked fast angry music, and were all veggie/ vegan so it made sense.
      Can you please introduce all the members of BOAK, so that we are able to get a picture about their personality and about what they have done before they joined to this band? The only thing I know that one member played in Filthpact, but correct me if I'm wrong.
      Currently we are slightly different as we are just a 2 piece, with Teabags on guitar and vocals and Ewan on drums and vocals. To begin with we originally had a bassist as well, Ben. Teabags was previously in Filthpact, Uncalm, Vomitus and a few bands with stupid names. Ewan was in Dirtdrinker, Absolutist and is still in Clearer the Sky. Ben was in Cleavers.

Interview with Santi/ Looking For An Answer!

      Looking for an answer are one of the best known grindcore bands from Spain. They have released 3 full length and 9 splits releases since forming in 1999. Their latest full length Dios Carne released a couple months ago and I feel it is their best work yet. I spoke to vocalist Santi about their latest album, Spanish grindcore band and their plans for the rest of the year. Peter 'Trendcrusher' K.
       Hi, you have been around as a band for 18 years now. How does it feel looking back at your career?
      Hi Peter! I have been in the band only for the last 5 years, but i can tell you we all see this band as a continuous process, living in the present all the time and looking forward to what is to come. If i look back, i see an evolution and many gathered good experiences through touring, recording etc...
      I enjoyed your recently released album Dios Carne and found it your best work as yet. Tell us a bit more about the album.
      Thanks for the words Peter! The idea with Dios Carne was moving forward both musically and lyrically; It's still a classic grind/death album but we built more layers of sound influenced by other styles ranging from crust to funeral doom. Also, with the lyrics, we tried to enrich our anti-specist message with new concepts brought from psychology, philosophy...always learning.
Looking For An Answer, October 2016.
