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.
