Interview with Dondon Crust/ Maticrust!

       The United Arab Emirates is a country consisting of expatriates from around the world. Grindcore band Maticrust has been in the country for 5 years and made of of expats from the Philipines and India. This week, they released their first EP Inhumane World Deprivation. I spoke to vocalist Dondon Crust about the EP, performing at Obscene Extreme and also their plans for the rest of the year./ Peter 'Trendcrusher' K.
      To start off, tell us what it like being a Grindcore/ Crust band in United Arab Emirates?
      Being a Grindcore/ Crust in the U.A.E is a little hard at first because not all of them are listening to Grindcore, but now they appreciate it as part of The U.A.E’s underground Musick.
      How did the band get together? Do you know each other from bands/gigs in Philippines?
      We’re formed back in 2012 here in the United Arab Emirates but before we already have a band in the Philippines in 1995.We only Extent our struggle and recruit Rippon of Tsvet Reptilia as our permanent drummer here.

Interview with Anders Jakobson/ Axis Of Despair.

        Hey, I know about axis horizontalis, axis verticalis, axis sagittalis, axis superior... but Axis of Despair is a new thing for me. Could you explain?
      The combination of the words is picked from an Assück song called “Perpetual Cycle” (“The perpetual cycle rotates on the axis of despair.”). We worked for so long to come up with a band name that was unique and that all of the members liked. Axis of Despair was that name. I think it's a good description of the current state of the world or mankind, and it's a great starting point for our lyrics.

Interview with Dan from RESONANCE CASCADE and exclusive stream of "Violent and disappointed"!

NO FUN - NO TREND - NO ART - JUST GRIND
      Hey, your a new band for the maniacs worldwide, could you please introduce Resonance Cascade?
      ok. First some boring facts: We are four guys from Scania, the very south of Sweden, from towns like Malmö, Lund and Osby and consists of: Johan Bergström – vocals, Arvid Borg – drums, Andreas Johansson – bass and Dan Widing – guitar. We started the band autumn 2012 , with another drummer. That drummer left the band cuz he said ” I don´t play fast enough for you guys”. So the first recording we did ended up as a seven inch on a cool U.S label called Cricket Cemetery sometime late 2014 early 2015. Don´t remember. Anyway, you can´t hardly find it in europe I think. if you want to buy it you have to go directly from us haha. Don´t know about the distribution. Anyway we got some nice reviews for it and for being the first songs we wrote it´s not to bad. So for excisting for well almost five years we have only done three gigs, our fourth we be done on the release party for our upcoming split LP with Järnbörd the second of march in Malmö. Haven´t worked to hard to get shows, haha. Really hope that we can get out more on the road and hope the grinders enjoy the split LP, cuz I really liked how our recording turned out. Raw and fast!

Interview with Convulsions and exclusive stream of debut full length!

Cultivated the Spanish Grindcore traditions debutants from Convulsion attacks with debut full length album. Enjoy the stream and interview, Andy.
       Hey, convulsions are involuntary muscle spasms, what was the reason for selecting such a brutal name for the band?
      Hey! We are Campos (vocals), Héctor (guitar) and Binky (bass). First things first, thanks for counting on us for this interview.
      Campos: It wasn’t anything we thought a lot, actually. We just wanted something aggressive as a name, since the music is fast, and we liked this one.
      What would you say to a person who hasn't heard your debut album?
      Campos: Sincerely we haven’t invented anything new in grindcore nor we are going to, we simply like to mix old school grindcore, bands like Denak or Excruciating Terror, with raw grind like Insect Warfare, Death Toll 80K or Internal Rot. If you like blast beats, take 15 minutes to have a listen, which is the length of our EP.
      Héctor: Turn the volume up and enjoy.

      Your lyrics are in Spanish, could you explain us (speak english or die people) Convulsions ideology?
      Héctor: Hahaha, we don’t speak about convulsions, I wouldn’t know what to say about them. Lyrics are about injustices and social problems mostly, inequalities, against war and capitalism.

Interview with Niklas/ The Arson Project!



      Hey Niklas, The Arson Project is back to the game due to debut album "Disgust". What caused the disgust?
      Hey Andy! I would say the combined abstinence of not being able to express feelings, be creative/writing music or touring to the extent that we would like to - and the huge frustration of living in this fucked up ignorant and selfish world where the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer, while the rest of the people are jumping from one foot to another unable to decide whether they should care more about the new Iphone model or where celebrities buy their underwear. The forests are soon gone, the seas are already filled with garbage, the meatgrinder keeps on going and more wars and more suffering is ahead of us. But just relax because you can be 100% sure that there's some way that they will be able to blame the immigrants for all of it too. However, the purpose is not about enlightening anyone, it's more like a personal way of processing it. I gave up long time ago.

Interview with Jan/ Agathocles!

Agathocles legacy is impressing, because of the many formats of records, from multiple sizes vinyls, tapes and CDs, different style of Mincecore, and the most important aspect theyr sincerly and truely support for mankind and DIY scene.


Hey Jan, your last show was in the old cows shed, it's not typical place to play. What's the most weird places your played?
Last show was great. It was in semi-squated cow shed in the french speaking part of belgium, which in the end 60’s beginning 70’s was squated by students of the university there. The meaning of the gig we played was French speaking and Flemish speaking punks TOGETHER against the fucking national linguistic fascist movements in belgium. LONG LIVE FRIES, BEERS AND PUNK!
Agathocles create Mincecore, new kind of anti-music. How would you describe this genere?
It is NOISE and noise for a good purpose. Making alternatives for young kids to start bands, because the only good musician, is a dead one, hahahaha. NO, just kiding. With the mince core thing, we just wanna say that you can do all by yourselves by believing in what you do and creating your network of friends. Not your network of coke sniffing money grabbing record bosses/ managers.

Interview with Raphael and Julien/ Bain De Sang!

      BAIN DE SANG is a straight to the point and rageous mix of intense grindcore and hateful hardcore. Enjoy the intervew with Raphael and Julien made by Zsiga Zoltán/ Blast Fanzine.


       Please introduce yourself and your bandmates, and give us a detailed summary about how Bain De Sang came into being. All I know about you is, that some members were playing in Blockheads, so I’m curious about how did you get togehter exactly, and what other bands and projects did you have in the past.
      Raphael: Hi Zoli! First, we’re very pleased to answer this interview, thanks a lot for your support! I played guitar in Blockheads for a couple of years, during the Blockheads / Mumakill split and tours era mostly! Way before that, I played in a band called Aenima, it was 15 years ago, and this is when I met Julien (singer) and Yves (bassist), when we played and party quite often with our respective bands! We discussed a few times with Julien over the past years about starting a band together. And we finally did, it was somewhere in the end of 2013. And it took about 6 to 8 months to finally gather all the bands members. Julien is singing, Yves is playing Bass, Guillaume is playing the drums, and I’m playing guitar. We also might have a second guitarist joining someday!
      Julien: I used to sing in a French act called Judoboy, around 2000 something, and this is when Raph and I met! I then played in a band called “Baron noir”, in 2006 I think, with ex members of Flying Workers, a French screamo band somewhat popular at that time. And that’s pretty much it until Bain De Sang. Yves is an old friend of mine, we were both living in the city of Amiens, and he used to hang out with the guys from Judoboy. About Guillaume, he used to play drum in Comity, a chaotic hardcore band from Paris, on Candlelight Records at that time. Also, Judoboy and Comity played quite a few time together. Long time buddies!
