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!

Interview with Gerald and Derek/ EXISTENCH!

        Existench is one of the most truthful to underground bands. The ideals changes in the past 25 years... How did you survived all this years as a band and didin't freak out?
       Gerald- I've kept active in bands over the past 25 years. Music is part of my life and is actually therapeutic for me. It's a great release physically and mentally. I'm in it for life I guess haha.
      Derek- We kept on playing never stopped in other projects so coming back to this was easy.
      On the beginning of grindcore era are Earache's bands, were you was inspired by them, or Existench roots are, more closer to punk and thrash? How did you meet your future friends from Existench/ Disabuse? I bet it wasn't easy to set up rehearsal space at the beginning of 90's?
split w/ Deboned (2016)
      Gerald- I met Derek when I was 18 back in 1990 I guess... I was already into Cryptic Slaughter, D.R.I, The Accused, C.O.C., Agnostic Front as well as Canadian, American and European thrash and death metal. Derek was definitely into the Earache bands and immediately turned me onto Napalm Death, Carcass, Boltthrower, Doom, Heresy, Concrete Sox etc. Anyway, Derek and I started a thrash band initially called Abhorrent and at that time I only played guitar. That band lasted about a year and then we changed the lineup and the name changed to Gorbage and we were more of a death metal band. Derek left after a year or so to pursue other bands (System Shit, the Shitheads, etc.) but he and I remained friends and eventually in '95/'96 we started Disabuse which was a d-beat band to begin with as I was just learning how to drum. By '97 we decided to change the name to Existench and the style became more aggressive and grind influenced. Derek remained in the band until '99. After that lineup change we kept going until 2001 or so but the departure of Ryan Davies kind of spelled the end of that era of Existench. Amazingly enough we've always had luck with rehearsal space. I don't think we've ever spent more than a few months without one ever!
      Derek- I Started listening to thrash and hardcore at a young age the faster it was the better so I got into all those crazy Earache/ Maniac Ear bands when they all came out in the 80s. All the bands I've played in previously before I met Gerald in 1990 were influenced by them.

Interview with Gabri/ Terror Firmer!

     Interview with Italian thrashing old school grindcore unit Terror Firmer by Zsiga Zoltán/ Blast fanzine.
     Hello guys, how are you, are you ready for this interview? Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days? As far as I know you’d suffered some line-up changes recently, right?
     Hi! Here’s Gabri from Terror Firmer, old school Grindcore since 2008.
     Yeah, there have been some line-up changes lately: our drummer Borz decided to left recently after kindly recording a last song with us. Since then we went on with a provisory line-up with JESUS AINT IN POLAND members but I will explain it better in the next question.
     What made you want to start Terror Firmer and what do you set out to do with this band? Can you summarize the band’s history so far and introduce the other members?
     Me and Morbid JJ (Bass) started this band during a talk at a gig in 2007 or so, when we both agreed that we would have to form a band that gathered all our extreme influences: old school Grindcore (of course), Extreme HC (bands like LARM, SIEGE, HERESY as well as Japanese, Finnish, Swedish bands from the ‘80s), the faster and rawer Thrashcore bands (CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER above all), Mincecore… then we asked to Jolla and Borz to join (we all already knew each other since at the time we all used to partecipate in the activities of a squat in Modena called LA SCINTILLA… now dead) and they both liked the idea… a couple of months later common friend, boozer and old grinder Simone joined too as a second vocalist… that period was very funny, it seemed a bit like EXTREME NOISE TERROR on stage ahaha. After the first recording in 2009 (for splits with HUMUS, MINKIONS and EATING MACHINE) Simone has been forced to stay on hiatus, even if we still consider him a member of the band.
     Since that, we went on as a four piece. We did another recording in 2012 (for splits with SOCIAL CHAOS and INSOMNIA ISTERICA), another one in 2014 (for splits with AGATHOCLES and ARCHAGATHUS… the latter one is still to be released), did a lot of gigs in Italy and some outside (with our friends from SPOSA IN ALTO MARE in 2012 and REPULSIONE in 2013) and then we come to the latest stuff… our drummer Borz left after recording another exclusive song in 2014 for CRASH MANDOLINO 2.0 : ITALIA VIOLENTA LP compilation, which has been released this year.      Last thing we did was recording in Summer 2015, with a special line up with drummer and singer from our friends and local grinders JESUS AINT IN POLAND, for a split 7” with Japanese band Su19b that will be released next year. Grindfather Productions also released in 2013 “Grind’s not Dead” tape, which is a sort of discography with some unreleased live songs from the mini tour with SPOSA IN ALTO MARE.
     I think it’s all now, aren’t you bored to read all this?

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.

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...".

Interview with Rahi/ Insect Warfare!

      I was chatting with Rahi for some time and when the idea for making interview came up, both of us got excited, you can enjoy our conversation below.
      Everybody is stoked about Insect Warfare's exclusive show on Trutnov battlefield, everything goes smoothly, everybody talks about this. Recently Phil Anselmo appeared in all the headlines of extreme music community with his heritage and I need to admit, it's a heavy shit. This punk raised his arm in Nazi salute and yelled "white power" during his show with Dave Grohl, Robert Trujillo and Dave Lombardo at the Dimebash festival. Judgment days for metal community. He decapitated himself. I'm sure grindcore is not a place for shit like this, Nazi Punks Fuck Off! I decided to talk about this shit with Rahi, he didn't follow the news so closely, so I've sent him the link with youtube video. I just watched the clip, but couldn't make out the words. I'm pretty much sure we all agree, there is no place for hateful ideologies
in this world. Regardless. His actions are inexcusable and he should be accountable. I just know what he did was in bad form and people should react accordingly. He apologized, but some people in Poland remember his actions on the backstage of Metal Fest in Jaworzno, 2013. Obviously what he did is wrong and offensive to many people, but at the same time, we can't lose focus from real nazis and nsbm bands that are actually spreading nazi ideologies. I totally agree, Phil Anselmo is not the only one, his behaviour reminded us that Nazi ideologies are spreading around and its scale is quite big. We shall face it, we all should react.

Interview with Frank Gold/ Cryptic Void/ Turbokrieg!

      hey Frank, I appreciate you've found some time for a chat with me. GCxGC buldozer is on the west coast tour. I noticed touring in States is not too safe, people try to kill you not only with gun, but also with monkey wrench. Unscrewing wheels is totally in Holywood style, Frank. What the fuck is going on in States brother, does it have something to do with Trump?
      Haha I'd like to wish it were so cut and dry as punks being nihilistic trump supporters for such heinous acts. It's hard to believe that any punks or grinders for that matter could follow and support such nonsense ideas and policies. So I don't think that's the case.
      Last year on the 2015 Midwest tour with Lycanthrophy, our van and trailer were sabotaged. One wheel being loosened and the trailer filled with our gear was as well loosened up as well, causing it to fall off the back of the van and slam into the bumper. Luckily no one was injured. With a little background info one can draw conclusions for themselves as to what happened.
      2005 in Baltimore Eric t Neal the singer of Turbokrieg was diagnosed with cancer. After months of treatment and radiation therapy, he was given a further evaluation that what he had was not life threatening cancer but a tumor that lives on his spine to present day. He then chose to take himself off the therapy to get back to a normal functioning life. However he still has seizures a few times a year because of this condition. While Eric was undergoing treatments and being sick, the punks in the scene in Baltimore at the time took it upon themselves to raise money for him to pay hospital bills. Which is great! After the fact he became non-terminal the kids in the scene there believed that it was all a scam and a lie. So they slandered his name as a cancer faker and a villain to the community. Eric never tried to defend his name. Do you blame him!? After being sick and away from shows and the whole scene for over six months he started to see that he was basically betrayed and felt that he didn't need to have these "friends" in his life. Obviously this is the long "short" version. But that's the gist of the story.
      After years of this going on Eric moves to Houston where he is welcomed with open arms by the GCHC crew of punks and grinders. Since Eric has been in Houston there have been many issues with bands that I am in and as well as other Houston bands that are affiliated with Eric in any way.
      On the Lycanthrophy tour we were 17 days in when mysteriously all the lug nuts on one tire came loose and the trailer fell off the back of the van. At first we thought it was a coincidence with the trailer, since that happened first. Then when the tire almost came off on the highway and we saw that the brake dust was freshly rubbed off, we knew it was connected and sabotage.
      I conclude as well as my band members that it wasn't a random act of mischief. There was $15,000 worth of gear and all of our merch money in the van when that happened. Surely any normal criminals would break in and steal all the valuable and priceless gear.
      I leave you to make your own assumptions.
      This is the crazy type of stuff that we deal with. Not to mention denying places to sleep on tour, boycotting shows, etc.... Just saying shit happens and it was a coincidence is highly unlikely. Being that we were in the city of Baltimore, MD.

Interview with Petri/ Feastem!

      hey Feastem, I think we should start with some serious questions. Please explain the idea for the vinyl labels on split 7 inch with Spanish grinders Teething. We both agree that the cover is a little bit "retard style". I get it and I love it, but I'm super curious why exactly Petri's face is located on Feastem's label?
      Hey EveryDayHate Blog, let’s do just that! The labels were Luis' (from Teething) idea. Teething has a tradition of putting funny pictures of it’s members on the labels of their vinyl releases and he thought it would be fitting that we do the same for this one. Apparently my face was the dumbest picture he could find from our Facebook so there it is, for all to enjoy, haha! I was going to try and find more pics so we could’ve had our entire band there but then life happened and I didn’t have the time. So now it’s just me.
      Personally I think your 3 songs from split with Teething are the best. While listening to them, I feel that you're older musically, well-concidered and less chaotic. Feastem has become more readable and recognizable. You go forward not only in my opinion, your last album got so many badass reviews. What is your motto - working hard and playing harder?
      Thanks for your kind words! I think the new stuff is going to differ a bit from our previous releases since Antti is no longer in the band. He wrote a lot of our older material and had a very unique style of writing that definitely made the “Feastem sound”, if you will. After he left, we’ve had to come up with a new approach to writing. We used to do everything over the internet since all of us lived in different cities. Now me, Olli and Pate all live in Helsinki and Niko lives only 2 hours away so it makes things a little easier for us. Olli has been responsible for coming up with the skeletons for the new songs and for the first time ever since I’ve been in the band, we actually jammed and finished the new songs together in the rehearsal room. We also recorded everything ourselves and took a little bit more organic approach to the whole thing and I think it really shines through on the split. Olli has tons of new tunes in the pipeline and we’re going to start finishing the new album as soon as possible! We haven’t really been a hard working band, living all over Finland has been an obstacle in that sense but I think that’s going to change now. As for playing, we always play HARDEST!!!

Interview with David/ Teething!

      Hello guys, this is Zoli from Blast fanzine/ EDH grindblog, Hungary. Thank you for this interview. Can you introduce your band; who is who, how did you create Teething? For how long are you been in the music industry, what other bands and side-projects do you have or had in the past?
      Hey Zoli, thank you for having us! At the moment we are three out the four members that started the band: Álvaro plays drums, Luis hangs from the ceiling and I (David) play bass and do backing vocals. It’s been around two months now that we have been working with Antonio to fill in for guitars. He used to play in Hybrid. Teething was created out of angst and boredom in the Summer of 2011. Álvaro and I have been playing for over ten years together now. We used to play in a noise project that lost a few members so we couldn’t really keep going. Perfect timing cause we were anxious to build something angrier and more raw. Just more aggressive. Which happened to be TEETHING after a couple of jams with the former guitarist, Charlie and Luis on the mic.

Interview with Rikard/ Gadget!

      It's time to talk with one of the most lazy and dead serious about playing grindcore band ever, the Swedish Gadget. They started playing in 1997 and until now they recorded 2 albums, 2 splits and few demo tapes... so let us begin conversation with Rikard, Gadget guitar player.

      I was very upset when the Eastern front/Violate Europe tour ended, it was a badass 6 days on the road. Live grindcore every night, incredibly good food, hundreds of crazy maniacs around, so many good supports, sick shit, seriously! Tell us how the idea of the tour came up? Were all your expectations fulfilled in the end? Did you have fun? Was Fredrik waiting for you in rehearsal room with hot dinner, bath and drinks?
      Seriously, sick shit! Overviolence asked us last winter if we would be into the idea. We've had Henke with us on tour earlier, and we did a short run with their previous band Crowpath a few years before that, so we knew they were easy going guys. And yes, it definitely turned out great - even though Fredrik had a last minute emergency and decided to stay home. Cancelling is not an option, not when you've got flights, merch and everything sorted out and payed for. And we thought that if other grind bands can do it without bass, why can't we? As Dr Eriksson (General Surgery) put it when I asked him if he could fill in: "Just put the damn guitar in the bass amp, no one cares anyway!" The bigger shows with Cannibal Corpse and Sepultura was the most comfy ones, and the small DIY shows in Slovakia was the most fun ones - just as expected!
