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.
