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)

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)

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)

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.

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)
