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.
