Curby / Obscene Extreme Festival 2021

Could you inform us about some major changes? I guess the rules have been changed because of the epidemic… First I have to say that the Czech Republic is now a green light country as for covid and the situation here looks really fine now…and it’s summer time so even the weather will surely help! So far our government announced open air shows for 5000 people in July 2021 which is enough for OEF this year!!! As fo covid restrictions, it seems that one of the following ones will be needed: 1. Vaccination or 2. Negative test or 3. Post … Continue reading Curby / Obscene Extreme Festival 2021

Inhumate (16.05.21)

Hi Fred, my sincere congratulations with a new album! Finally, it`s happened. Could you give us more info about this last LP? You’re right when you say this last LP, because if it’s the last we recorded, it’s also the last we will record.This album is Inhumate seventh and last one. We started an heptalogy (seven album concept) back in 1996 and now, with « Eternal Life » we’re ending it. And I think we don’t stop with a slower stupidly sounding doom album. We tried to end with the most bestail thing we could do. I was lucky to hear the … Continue reading Inhumate (16.05.21)

Sanctioned (30.04.21)

Hi, Jay hope you`re doing well. Let`s start with your debut album. How much time did you spend on this LP? I’m doing great thank you. It’s good to be getting life back to normal during this shitty pandemic. We tracked the album over a weekend at Danger Tone studios with the legend Luke Walton. We did that very quickly but it didn’t feel rushed at all it just didn’t take either of us much time to do our parts. Then after that our home city of Melbourne went into lockdown for eight weeks or so so mixing and mastering … Continue reading Sanctioned (30.04.21)

Ashdöd (29.03.21)

Hi Dani! How are you doing these days? Hope that you and your family are healthy. Hi Alex, thank you for thinking of me for this interview, much appreciated! Everything fine here but trying to keep sane in these strange days. Continuous lockdowns and restrictions here in Spain are turning me a bit mad. Could you share with us a short story about Ashdöd? Everything started one year ago. I made all the music for a new project, a crustcore (or stenchcore as we used to call it back in the days) project. It had to be as a crustcore … Continue reading Ashdöd (29.03.21)

Global Grindcore Alliance (22.03.21)

Hi mate, hope you’re doing well. So let`s start our small talk, hehe) Tell us about this festival? How do you come up with such an idea? I hope you are well and thank you for doing this. The idea really came up due to Covid because of the fact that as a band we could not really play shows anywhere and all the creative outlets/ platforms were really not there for us . So we figured that other bands worldwide really were experiencing the same situation where their outlet was limited, so we reached out to all our friends … Continue reading Global Grindcore Alliance (22.03.21)

Sick Sinus Syndrome (10.03.21)

Greetings! Hope you`re doing well and you and your families are healthy. So first of all I want to know when and how the idea about creating such band was pop up? Hi Saša. We are doing quite fine, but situation here in czech is fucked up, right now. But we are more, less healthy I have to say. So, the first idea of having such a project was in our heads (mine and Jurgen´s) quite some time, even the first idea was not to do pathological grindcore, but old school thrash metal. But after our first jam session in … Continue reading Sick Sinus Syndrome (10.03.21)

Abaddon Incarnate (01.10.20)

Hi Steve, hope you`re doing well and your beer is cold. So how do Abaddon Incarnate surviving through these times? It’s difficult, we had an album planned for 2020 which had to be pushed back to 2021 and also a high profile tour of the Baltics, Ukraine, and Russia and also a few festival appearances which were all canceled. We work hard to get these things moving and when a shit thing falls on us like this pandemic, it’s a massive kick in the balls. But of course, everybody is in the same situation so it feels wrong to moan. … Continue reading Abaddon Incarnate (01.10.20)

Erectile Dementia (29.09.20)

Hi Doug. How are you doing? Hope this shitty epidemic didn’t get you and your family. Greetings from the USA, my man! I am phenomenal. Perfectly healthy for now but check back in a few months when things have gotten even more juicy. We just need to have faith in the system and pray away the virus, right? I live in an old farm house on thirteen acres of overgrown woods so I’ve been spending most of my time sawing up dead trees, digging in the mud and ignoring other human beings as much as possible. Just like last year! … Continue reading Erectile Dementia (29.09.20)

Yacopsae (30.08.20)

Good day, Stoffel, how are you doing? Hope that this shitty lock down had no effect on you and Yacøpsæ. Hey-Ho! Thank you, we are doin’ fine. The lock down caused that we had no more rehearsals for a long time and all concerts for 2020 were canceled. So we’ve been in the same situation like many other bands/ artists. In addition, Thore had a dragged problem with his right leg. After all, the lock down was a kinda good point of time healing the leg, eventually. In September we will rehearse regularly again and in December we do some … Continue reading Yacopsae (30.08.20)

Greetings people from the planet X! How`re you doing these days? You have that bullshit virus too?) Greetings, people from earth. This is supreme leader Noiseape hailing you. Yes, the virus has infiltrated this system as well. But we hide in our moon-base, watch movies, listen to noise, get wasted and sit it out. While our scientists work on a cure.

Lycanthrophy (01.02.20)

Greeting man, how are you doing today? How was Grind Here Right Now for you? Hi Alex, we are fine, thanks for asking. Grind here right now was a blast! Thanks to Mario and all the involved parties for such a good work. It was pretty crazy trip for us because of distance like 900km but was worth all the effort. The line up was pretty insane including old school grind and fast core bands only, the venue was cool although it was sold out and packed but this is much better than an empty place and broken promoter. I … Continue reading Lycanthrophy (01.02.20)
