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.

Interview with Gendo Ikari!

      Gendo Ikari is a young talented band from the UK's Grindcore scene, they attracted the attention with first 7"EP Unit_1. Even though they borrowed the name from Neon Genesis Evangelion, you shouldn't have to be an anime-freak to enjoy the creative and effectve brutality of this fresh band from Glasgow! Let's check our interview with them! Zoltan Zsiga.

      I would like to discuss first about the origins of the band, and do an overall introduction. Can you give us a brief history, how did you get together? Who’s who; and what other bands or side-projects do you have, or had in the past?
      The band is Gerald (guitar), JJ (vox), Chris (bass) and George (drums). We've played with each other in various bands before and don't like talking to anyone else, so this is sort of just kind of happening. George also plays in Blanca Grande, who sound like a Satanic Slint and Chris plays in Party Cannon and Iniquitous Savagery. Gerald, JJ and George used to play in a tech metal band The Colour Pink Is Gay, and the guitarists left the country so we decided to make a new grind band with Chris.
      Please tell me about your inspirations and influences as well. How did you get in contact with this kind of music, when did you realized that Grindcore is the genre for you?
      We like it when the drums go GA GA GA GA DUGUGUGUGUDUDUGUGU GAGAGAGA and fast playing, where the notes don't make sense and it's off kilter. Blast beats are yas.
Gendo Ikari in action!

Get ready for interview with Ape Unit and exclusive stream of Zoopocalypse Grindcore!

      I will release a unique 7 inch of plastic on 30th of June. It's a split between Ape Unit and Horsebastard, together 11 songs of Zoopocalypse Grindcore. This is a great opportunity to stream a new Ape Unit's song and talk with Steve. Enjoy, Andrzej Dumala.
      hey Steve, what's Ape Unit?
      Ape Unit is a project started almost ten years ago by five bored primates who decided to join forces to play as fast and noisy as they can. The band changed a lot along the years, but the original concept has remained the same : five friends having fun playing extreme music!
      What causes boredom?
      Nothing in particular, really. At the time, all the original members of the band were into extreme music, so It was easy to start the project, even If It first came as a "joke band", and It turned into something more serious months after the first rehearsal.

Interview with Fabio Mozine/ Läjä Records!

       Fabio Mozine supports underground DIY scene since I remember, his label is well know because of many great and weird releases. Enjoy the exclusive interview made by Carlos James, translated by Zé Misanthrope specially for GCP blog.
        Since when have you noticed that yo’ve reached the point of no return in your underground life? When did you realize it could be a real thing, that instead of having a 9-5 Job, your bands and projects would be the priority? Do you have plans on expanding Läjä?
       I Think i’ve noticed the point of no return even before forming my first band, just for the simple pleasure I’ve felt from listening to garage bands, local bands and for the absolute disgust I’ve felt for the mainstream bands, even the metal ones. And of course the feeling being part of the underground community. Now, for me to believe in it in a professional point of view, especially with the label, being able to make a living out of it, it took me quite some time, and I’m still struggling with it. It’s a very unstable job, it makes me fearful and insecure about the very nature of it. Obviously any kind of job has its instabilities, but think about it: if you have a stable job in a bank, for instance, I believe you don’t feel afraid about losing your job or having no income unless you fuck up really bad. I’m not sure if I will expand Laja in any means, based on my will to work at home with small things and little problems. I just think I need to revamp it from time to time.

Interview with Smattro Ansjovis/ Birdflesh!

       Smattro Ansjovis is a founder of one, of the oldest and most recognizable Swedish Grindcore bands, Birdflesh is having their 25-year anniversary this year. Andrzej Dumala.
        Hey Smattro, Birdflesh is having their 25-year anniversary this year as a one of the oldest and most recognizable Swedish Grindcore bands. What are your thoughts on the legacy of Birdflesh?
       Hey Andy! Yeah, 25 years ago we started Birdflesh. It's really crazy. Though it took a few years to learn how to play and write songs, haha! It has been lots of ups and downs through the years and I am the only original member left. But I can't imagine my life without this band. It's like a family member.
       Playing Carnivalgrind for quarter of a century is an excellent opportunity to celebrate, Are you gonna have a big party to mark the occasion?
       We haven't really thought about doing anything special to celebrate. Sadly there is no time. Family, work and our other bands take a lot of time too. We have a few shows coming up this year so I guess we gonna have some beers with our fans who care about our 25th anniversary. We save the big party until we turn 50.
"Thanks Ryan and Evan + crew for having us at NDF. People say we had a great time. Cheers to all crazy people who moshed at our show." Birdflesh 2017.

Interview with Harry Bryan/ Prisoner 639 and exclusive online stream of split w/ Throw Me In The Crater.

       Harry Bryan is a guitar player in raw and primitive deep-mouthed Powerviolence duo Prisoner 639. I met him personally during the tour with Nothing Clean in Warsaw's Chmury Klub. As a D.I.Y. label I helped them to release split 7 inch with Throw Me In The Crater. This is a great chance to share the stream officially and post interview we made some time ago. Andrzej Dumala.

       hey Harry, it's millions of prisoners out there, why you chose the Prisoner 639? Is he special?
       Prisoner 639 is very special, actually, and anyone who appreciates Asian cinema may well be familiar with them already.

       What's your prison?
       My prison? Trying to break out of an endless cycle of Bojack Horseman. Well... I say trying, I never tried very hard. Classic stuff.

Interview with Jon Petterson/ Henry Kane!

Jon Pettersson is no stranger to the Metal world, he is a member of bands like Wombbath, Ashcloud and Just Before Dawn. A couple months ago, Transcending Obscurity released their debut album Den Förstörda Människans Rike from his new project Henry Kane is newest band from and it sounds awesome. The albums combines buzzsaw grinding guitar riffs with deep growled vocals in Swedish. I spoke to Jon about the album, horror movies and the possibility of Henry Kane live shows. Peter 'Trendcrusher' K.
You are a part of bands like Ashcloud, Just Before Dawn, Wombbath and many others. How and when did you decide to start a solo project, Henry Kane?
I was coming up to my 20th year as a recording artist, so I wanted to make something personal to mark this. So it felt natural to start a solo project. My first band metal band Disfigured Victims was a solo project to begin with, so it was kind of like closing a circle.
Den Förstörda Människans Rike sounds like a mix of Death Metal, Crust and Grindcore. How did you come up with your unique sound?
It is basically a mix of all the genres I’ve played throughout the years filtered down into a melting pot of extreme music. You even get some Black Metal parts in there if you listen carefully. It needed to be an extreme expression pushed to its very limit.
What was the writing process for the album? Do you prefer writing alone or as part of a band?
I started writing some riffs that I felt had the right feel to them. I made up a demo that would be the base for the final product. Once I had the basic structures for the songs, I started working on the details, melodies and small hooks. It was very important build layers on each song. Every time you listen to the album you should find details you didn’t catch previously.
What was the recording process for the album? Where was it recorded?
It was recorded, mixed and master in my studio “Studio Unbound”. It started with the drums, followed by the rhythm guitar. After that more guitars, bass and vocals was layered on. On each I chase a certain feeling, and layers will be added or removed until I find what I am looking for.

Interview with Philip/ Dead Instrument!

The following interview was made with the Danish Grindcore squad Dead Instrument, the news about their upcoming split with Whoresnation and Chiens was just announced a few weeks ago, but this will be unfortunately the last release from this killer band. I talked with Philip about the end, about their last split with the dirty Sludge lords, Meth Drinker, and about some personal topics as well. Enjoy! Zoltán Zsiga.
Hello Philip, greetings from EveryDayHate Grindblog and thank you for this interview! First of all, I’d like to talk about the upcoming split Lp; including you, Whoresnation and Chiens. Can you tell us some words about this release, and about your songs? What can we expect from the split?
Hey Zoli, thank you for the Interview! Our contribution to the split was recorded in the same session as the songs for the Meth Drinker split and it's been a long way coming! I believe it was Lopin from Whoresnation who wrote us a long time ago about doing a split. We liked them, so we agreed, but had some other stuff to get out of the way first. Then we played with them and Chiens on our tour with PLF, and they were both fucking amazing – I bought the Chiens Vultures are our future 10” later on that tour and was blown away by it. I think the talk of individual splits with both bands was drunkenly brought up on the night of the show and the idea changed to do a threeway split not long after. I might be wrong, but I think it was Michol from Chiens who suggested, that each band contribute with five songs that had the same overall lyrical themes. In that same spirit, the running order of the split is divided into those five themes, instead of all the songs from each band one after another. It's unusual, but feels nice to do something a little different, and everyone delivers a 100% on this thing, so I think it worked out well!
Upcoming split LP w/ Whoresnation and Chiens.

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"!

      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.
