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.
