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)

Depression (21.01.21)

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)

Hi Josh, I hope you and your family doing well. Take a beer, let’s begin 😉 Thank you for the opportunity to share a little about myself and my label with all the grind maniacs around the world! I wanna start by asking how you got into music in the first place? When did you get serious about it and when did you start collecting different releases as a crazy?)

Crowd Surfers Must Die (14.04.20)

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. The situation is bizarre and surreal, but I hope people see this as a warning and learn from it. Not to fuck around with mother nature and stop this lifestyle and culture of greed and exploitation. I must confess, … Continue reading Crowd Surfers Must Die (14.04.20)

Hello my friends, hope you’re doing well and you have enough toilet paper and beer at your home to survive in this stupid epidemic. Hello my friend, yes we have!

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)

Hello! Vanya, as far as I know, Forest Hum was formed on Afonia’s fossils. So you decided to continue playing and create something new? Where does Forest Hum come from? Hey, mate! I and and dudes from AFONIA were growing up and were playing deferent kind of music together in Ural neat little town with the name Asha. I moved to St. Petersburg only in 2015, at that time, Afonia had already broken up to that moment, and our guitarist and drummer made some new music stuff. Once I also came to rehearsal, took the microphone and began to grimace … Continue reading Forest Hum (14.06.19)

2 Minuta Dreka (16.05.18)

2 Minuta Dreka are coming to Tokyo for a tour in the first half of June, so no better occasion to get some in-depth info about the band from their vocalist, Brandy. Seeming typos have been left in to preserve the integrity of the interviewee’s original answers. Thanks a lot to GGGG for hosting this interview. Describe your evolution into a pervert. The fist memory of a pervert was at elementary school when i was 6 years old. I was pretending to be sick because i didn’t want to be at school anymore and then i was waiting for my … Continue reading 2 Minuta Dreka (16.05.18)

Hagamoto (30.03.19)

Greeting Hagamoto-san! How are you doing today? I`m really happy that you found some time for this small conversation, I know you’re very busy, so I really appreciate it. Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself to your readership and I apologize in advance if my answers are a bit bland. Well, honestly I was shocked, when I saw how many bands you are a part of. The list is huge. So I must ask where do you find time and energy for all that? What motivates you to create so much music? You naturally gravitate to activities that … Continue reading Hagamoto (30.03.19)

General Surgery (28.03.19)

Greetings! It’s a huge pleasure for me to do this small interview, so how are you doing guys? What’s new, old or dead? Dr C: Salutations! We are still going, even though our public mortuary presence might indicate otherwise… as we say in Swedish: like lever! In 2019 I feel that the old stuffy carcass will start to shift its weight a little more and you might see a tad bit more activity. Which is relative to the flat-line you’re seeing now – make of that what you will. We’ll have a few public autopsies planned for the year, so … Continue reading General Surgery (28.03.19)

Convulsions (20.03.19)

Hola amigos! Finallym Convulsions is on GGGG pages! How are you doing boys? Hello! Yeah, finally! We took a long time to answer everything, but it’s a bit difficult for us, since we live in three different cities. We’re doing just fine. A bit busy lately, work sucks, but we try to manage. Thanks for counting on us for this interview! I`m afraid that I must ask you to tell your band’s story – so when, who, why? Well, Convulsions was born a bit after Human Butchery disbanded, which was the previous band where Héctor and Campos played. It was … Continue reading Convulsions (20.03.19)

Rawhead (04.03.19)

Hello my friend! How are you doing? How is it down there in Melbourne? Hopefully your beer is cold? Hey Alex! Right now it’s stupidly fucking hot. Unless I wrap ice packs around my beer it warms up way too quick. I hate this summer bullshit! Lachlan, the album “Spineless Pigs” sounds really monstrous. What feedback have you gotten so far? I heard that this album will be re-pressed in vinyl format. Please tell us all about that. Thanks mate! I’m surprised at how well it was received. Personally, I’m very happy with it and its nice to hear that … Continue reading Rawhead (04.03.19)

Greetings guys! How are you? I bet you’re tired as hell after the long road am I right? Wex: Yo I’m great! I’m recharged from tour, but tired from riding my bike 75 miles today. Andrew: I’m ready to rock again! Another tour is done, could you share some stories from the road with us? What was the most iconic moment on this trip? Wex: This tour was great. We went to a lot of Southern USA cities that most bands don’t play. I wasn’t sure if the gigs would be kind of weak since they’re smaller cities, but for … Continue reading Heinous (13.02.19)

A Survivors Guide to Obscene Extreme Festival

Obscene Extreme is one of the most Grindcore places on our small planet. I had always wanted to visit it, but for a number of reasons I managed to finally attend this year. On a high note, it’s even better because I visited during the big 20th anniversary celebration of the festival. So here is my story about a trip to the town of Trutnov. It was a long and hard journey; we left Kiev by car and did about 700 km of driving when we got stuck at the Ukrainian/Polish border for about 5 hours. Only in the morning … Continue reading A Survivors Guide to Obscene Extreme Festival
