Deboned Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Hey. First, thanks for the interview. As far as I’m concerned, we will hit the studio in late September/early October to record a few splits 7’’s. One with Radiation Vomit from L.A which has been planned since 2014, one with Short Order from Cleveland, Ohio and also a full Deboned 7’’ on Bringer of Gore records!!! Unfortunately this might be the last recordings ever for Deboned since our drummer left the band for some shady reasons and our guitarist moved to another area which makes it harder for us to play together as often as we’d like. End of the road, I guess.

2. Recently you were a part of a split, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

I guess you’re talking about the split with Existench since we had like four splits to date. The songs on it were recorded on the same recording session as the split with Mesrine, in early 2015. I think our song writing skills improved a bit since our last session and you can clearly hear it. I think the only noticeable change is that my vocals are clearer. We wanted it to be more ‘hardcore punk-ish’ than it was on the split with Striver and Nekro Drunkz.

3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

We always wanted to have that Impetigo/Pungent Stench kind of dark humour in our lyrics.  I tried to come up with ‘original’ subjects, if that’s still possible, but most of the stories behind the lyrics are just the same kind of thing you’d see in a comedy/horror movie. For example, one of our newer songs is about a psycho who steals a hearse, drives it off a bridge, keeps the corpse and sells his organs on the black market. Another one is about a guy who likes to fuck shit up at the mall until the cops are on his ass. Stupid stuff is our favorite stuff.


4. I have looked at some of your covers and while gory and offensive covers have been a part of the grindcore genre for a long time you also have some of the more sensitive people into grindcore that overreact to such covers, have you received any backlash in the past over the art work?

Strangely, we never really had any backlash about it. Sure some PC people didn’t buy, let’s say our demo since the cover is the more shocking we had but who cares? At the beginning we were afraid some people would call us misogynistic because we used females on our covers a few times but it never happened. I mean, it’s just art, right? You don’t have to care about what it means, because it doesn’t mean shit. It’s just a gross and shocking cover art. It doesn’t represent our thoughts on something; it’s just for shock value so, if anyone is shocked or disgusted by it, I guess the job is done.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Deboned'?

I found the name while reading some Carcass lyrics. I found out they even named their solos and I saw that word, ‘Deboned’. I then thought this would make a cool name for a band, as simple as that. I guess it just means, you get your bones removed or that you’re just a floppy piece of skin without bones, hahah.






6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We never really had any bad or better shows. I guess every gig we did had its little something. Thinking about it, the best part of playing live was just sharing the stage with other bands, getting to know new people, sharing stories and laughs with people we don’t get to meet very often. That’s probably the thing I’m going to miss the most.  As for stage performance, we just try to give our 110%. We want it to be short, fast and in your face as much as possible!!!


7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

As I said, the band is on hold or on the edge of breaking up so no plans for the future yet. Sucks to write these words.

8.Recently you were a part of a split with 'Existench', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

Man, I’m glad we had the chance to share this piece of wax with Existench, one of my favorite bands from Canada. Their side is excellent, as good as the older stuff for sure. I had the chance to meet Derek (vocals) for the first time when we played to OEF in Montreal in 2015. Dude was awesome and drunk as fuck, as usual!! He played the OEF too with System Shit this time and it was really great to see them live. I hope I’ll meet him again sooner or later and I’d really like to meet Gerald (guitar, drums) too someday. Only time will tell now.



9.Also you have been a part of numerous other splits, out off all the bands you have shared splits with, which one did you enjoy working with the most?

I think each time we worked on a split was different. Never had any bad experiences and we were happy of the results in every case. Our split with Striver took a bit longer to come out than the others and we had some fuck ups with the pressing plants, but nothing to cry about. The split with Mesrine came out really fast and Marc/B.O.G records did an awesome job with it, that’s also why we asked him to release our full 7’’ afterward. The split with Existench came out great too with a few extra copies on red vinyls. Also the best sounding one we had to date. We also did a split tape with Nekro Drunkz from Portland in our early days but we sold all our copies now. You can still hunt it in a few distros, especially for the N.Dz side!!!

10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of crust and grindcore?

Not sure about that but I think we left our mark as small as it is. As I said earlier, the best part of playing live was to meet new people and share experiences and stories with them. I think you can say the same about the ‘worldwide thing’. It really is awesome to work with labels, zines, distros from all across the globe. Working with people that actually believed in our stuff.  We really didn’t think we’d make it as far as this.
I guess we got a few fans here and there on the planet, but we will never going to be a big band. You know, we’re a small band from a very small town so just releasing a few splits 7’’ was already a dream come true for us.


11.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

I think I answered that question earlier. I don’t think there’s going to be any more Deboned releases after the three ones we will record later this year. But as far as I’m concerned, the new/last stuff is our best stuff to date.

12. What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We’ve always been highly influenced by bands like Repulsion, Rupture, Poison Idea or Righteous Pigs. We just wanted to have that kind of punky riffing and one-foot blast beats like the old days. We followed the same path as before for the new stuff. Now, get ready. I listen to a lot of early emo these days. Never mind what people think, it’s fucking good.  But don’t worry, you won’t find a trace of that in our music.

13.What are some of your non musical interests?

Me and Rudy, our new bassist, are old school gamers. We collect all of the old games and consoles we can. We’re also huge fans of exploitations and horror movies, like most people else in the scene, haha. I also dig anime and stuff like that but I’m the only one in the band that appreciates that kind of thing.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Well, thanks to you for the interview. I think I just need to thank everybody who helped us in any way. Labels, distros, zines, fans, everyone we got in contact with. Thank you. This was probably the best time of my life and I hope we’ll have a chance to play live once again if things ever get better. If not, too bad. But thanks for following us, sharing or buying our stuff. It meant so much to us. Also, if you need a copy of one of our split 7’’ you can hit me up at alexdevost@hotmail.com.

Urrghhhhhh.

Six Score Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Immediately after the recordings, we started to write new stuff for some split or even for the next 12“. The idea was too not wait to long for the next release. We also played a bunch of shows in Austria and around Austria. During this time we shared stages with GADGET, ROTTEN SOUND, MAGRUDERGRIND, AFGRUND or THE ARSON PROJECT and some other great bands which we really enjoyed.

2.You have a new album coming out in October, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
The musical sound is different. We still use Blast beats, d-beats, groove parts and so on, but I think the arrangement of the songs is catchier than the old releases.
We tried to mix a lot of genres into one. I would say the biggest ingredients are punk and metal. Fast Blast beats mixed with catchy d-beats and hardcore grooves – that’s it. All three in the band really enjoy the Scandinavian grind, which is strongly noticeable.
The biggest difference to the earlier released stuff is that we switched our guitarist in 2013.
So, there’s on the one hand the biggest difference to the old stuff. He brought a completely new influence to the band and a lot of ideas for every riff or song from this album, except of some parts. But we wrote all songs together, so the songwrting and arrangement changed in a pretty huge way.

If you listen to the songs, you have more time to get comfortable with the separate parts until you'll start to shake, then you'll open a beer and start a pogo. Just kidding, we tried to make an album which is more aggressive, faster, more brutal and we used more technical arrangements for breaks and grooves. Last but not least we tried to cover more genres than punk, hardcore and death metal in this album (perhaps you could find some other genres).

3.This is the first full length to be released in 6 years, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?
All of us are involved in separate other bands and projects. The other projects also need a lot of time. I think that’s the biggest reason why most bands are lazy.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
We are bashing the global structural change, which came from the neurotic capitalism. This capitalism created a way in modern times which takes influence in more and more parts in the human being.

The lyrics geared towards the state power against the people's ability to meaningfully oppose that power in all different ways which are functioning a state. They describe how the state controls the civilization and the environment with neo liberal capitalistic resources of the market. The system uses police, military, private security companies. The lyrics describe how the structural change and the power of a neo libaral system of a state, city, or whatever becomes visible in (public) spaces of cities.
Mostly it becomes visible in public space. You get controlled by cctv, police, military or private security companies - they kick you out or arrest you if you are a refugee, a drug addict, a shelterless or if you just look different, but rather not a part of the homogene consuming stupid society.
It becomes visible in the ecological environment, in the behaviour of society. And we have to deal with: Rasicm, sexism, greed, fear, hate, murder, repression, observation of civilization, the privatization of public space, increasing rents, gentrified neighborhoods, displacement of different socioeconomically disadvantaged groups, poverty, homeless people. marginalized people. And the state says that is development.
Cities aren´t places to live anymore, cities are places in a global network which  represent power of the state and the capital. You are a good citizen if you go to the shopping malls to consume shit, with money from sickening jobs and watch TV in your spare time.
If you want to change something you get black listed by the state or by a civil defence, which are mostly nationalists, racist, fascists and nazis. In cities the power holders decide about war against…
The hegemony creates laws how it becomes legal to destroy nature, how it becomes legal to destroy other countries and the civilization, how it is legal to use genocide, how it  is legal to trade slaves, how it is legal to slaughter for food, how it is legal to contaminate the soil… And we think that's normal, that's how our species works, our industrial world, our developed society and it is not possible to reorganize the world in a more positive way, because we think that we need to be successfull at a job, we need a car, a house with a garage. the system and the media tells us that´s the only way. And if we want to change something, the state and the capitalistic system says we are danger for the national security.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Six Score'?
A group of twenty units may be referred to as a score. You can combine and connect it arbitrarily. Translated six-score means the arbitrary combination of six times twenty units – hundred and twenty. It is an archaic word, which was used in the Dark Age or in ages of the Vikings. They used it to quantify their military strength. For example: six-score (thousand) warriors.
In this case the term six-score implies negativity. Connected to efficiency and right up to war and its strength. But, could six-core be used in a positive context? 

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We played a bunch of shows and we can´t say which one was the best. There were a lot of good times. The best concerts always were the ones where we met some old or new friends. We also really enjoy playing in small venues, especially squats or housing projects, but obscene extreme was also a really cool experience.
Our performance - you could call it professional, perhaps because of the fact that we all have lots of live experience. But we aren't professionals, we make grindcore in an aggressive way, which you can see on the stage. Acting professional is for musicians..

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
At the moment we are booking some shows for the upcoming release. After the release we will see which opportunities we will get for further concerts. We're really trying to go to the US and ASIA and (…) in the near future.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your recordings by fans of underground music?
When we got feedback, it was always great.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
I don't want to say to much about the stuff, but it could be interesting for fans of blackened hardcore punk (new metal, crossover, industrial metal, folk, hip hop and piss coming out of my ass). But it will still sound like grindcore.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
The biggest influence for us are our friends, who got us to hardcore punk music or even metal in the early years. A lot of bands were hyped by us. Mostly from the underground scene. NASUM is one name, which could have inspired us. But our approach to make music is based on the mixture of our different tastes for music. Jazz, blues and classical music are also genres offside the heavy guitar-music which we are listen to and don´t forget the good old psychedelic rock pop genre like Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Please don´t take the following too seriously, but we really don´t like these kind of questions. Interests are: To fight the system! One of us runs a recording studio. Such normal things like: reading, doing sports, meeting friends, creating things by ourself, eating, being lazy, being unproductive, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, being grumpy at this world and humanity… We always have fun with all of these activities. And it is even more funny, if we are on heroin, crack or crystal meth.

12. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
If you are making music, please don´t only be a musician or an artist who only makes money for others. Be a better person and fight this system and help people who need your help. Be lazy and don´t pay rent, don´t pay for things, reuse things, make things by yourself, don´t use smartphones and use your right for protest if it is possible in your country and fight the system, the hegemony - the bad guys. Let riot and the system-change become a funny thing ;)
Make Punk and Grindcore and not only music.

Geist Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

(A) We've all been involved in music for years now. Collectively we've probably played in about 15-20 bands over the last 10 years. Some of which have done more than others, this one has definitely stuck for the long run.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?

(A) I suppose it is what you take from it. While being reviewed we've been called anything from grindcore (?!) to "thrash metal" in your very review. If someone asks we tend to say its kind of crusty hardcore/punk. I suppose it has elements of everything though.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

(A) With every release the lyrics seem to have a fairly consistent "direction" throughout respectively. Our first was based around expectation and exploitation by means of religion. Each song was a stage of a journey through this, from the maker who creates the con, round circle to the healer. Our split deals with more social matters such as people's attitudes when they have money, and how their self worth changes. Also, a nod to George Orwell and conspiracy theories with checking in constantly with various social media platforms. Our newest material, that will appear on our 7" eventually, covers a more introspective view on things but from an extroverted angle, where other people can also relate.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Geist'?

(A) I honestly can't remember how it came about. Naming bands is one of the most awkward parts for me. I never like the sound of anything really! It was a toss up between Geist and another and i think we just started referring to it as Geist before we'd settled properly and it stuck.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

(A) Well in terms of playing shows i think the band is still relatively fresh. We tend to book runs of shows rather than play one offs which doesn't allow us to get out maybe as often as we'd like to but for longer spells when we do. Temples Festival would have been the biggest we'd done but that obviously didn't happen for obvious reasons. As for performance, we go into every show with as much energy as possible. We could be playing to 10 people or 500, we try and approach it the same.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

(A) We're away for 8 days early September. Hoping to get to Europe maybe early next year. We haven't done Europe with this band so we're all dying to get it sorted.

7.You have a split coming out with Sunlight's Bane, what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?

(A) Myself and Nick have been in touch for a few years now. They were looking for a band to do a split with and we were pondering our next release with 2 songs ready to either start our own 7" or go on a split so the time was just right for both parties.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of crust and grindcore?

(A) i'd say we've certainly gone down better on crust shows. I personally don't get the grindcore link with Geist to be honest.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

(A) we're already pretty much finished writing our own 7" so we'll be working out when we're going to record once we're done with the tour in September.


10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

(A) Between the 5 of us we listen to a lot of different music. Geist definitely takes influence from hardcore punk and crust. As cliched as that sounds i think its probably the best way i can describe it.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

(A) We're all very different people. Between us all our non musical interests range from football, through various forms of art, all the way through to spending hours playing computer games haha!

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

(A) If you haven't picked up the split 7" go grab one! Oh and come see us on tour!
2/9 - Leeds / Santiago
3/9 - Manchester / Star and Garter
4/9 - London / The Unicorn
5/9 - Brighton / SCNS
6/9 - Plymouth / The Junction
7/9 - Bristol / The Red Lion
8/9 - Hull / Gorilla Studios
9/9 - Newcastle / Northumberland Arms

F.A.M Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Hello.
It's been quite a long time since our debut album came out...The band was active, somewhere in the underground...We played rehearsals , from time to time we gave some bigger or smaller gigs…we slowly made new material. In the meantime, there have been some personal changes and everything took some more time.

2.You have a new album coming out in September, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
When it comes to the sound, we are totally satisfied with the effect we have achieved. Guitars and the bass sound strong and brutal, but also clearly. The person who embraced the mixing, so MichaƂ Grabowski, knows how brutal music is supposed to sound. Michal also mixed our previous CD split material for "Radical circus team". In comparison to the first record, there is a great difference.  “Bullet(in)" was recorded 10 years ago and a lot has changed since then regarding  equipment  and
recording possibilities. We are more experienced and we knew how we wanted to sound and it has been achieved on this record.

3.This is the first full length to be released since 2007, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?
As I mentioned before, there have been some personal changes and it influenced the making of the new material. But also..we don’t live in the same city. I have been involved the cooperation with other bands such as XAOZ ,AMOROHOUS or CHRIST AGONY. Our lineup is stable now , we have new material, there are gigs in the future so we are ready to act with full force.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Zajac (voc)
It may sound trivial, whatsoever, but I raise questions which concern ourselves and our surrounding. The idea for lyrics can  be found everywhere in the news, in friend’s blogs. These are common emotions simply put on paper. When I am pissed off, it is easy to yell it out. But I don’t only focus on what is wrong.  Cool memories from tours, being the part of a stage prove to be good content of lyrics. And love, of course, because  All songs are about love, aren’t they?

5.I know that the band’s name means 'Furor Arma Ministrat', how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?

All of  us get pissed off by a lot of Stuff…by everyday things, from trivial issues to such aspects in life we have no influence on , and they happen, irrespectively …hatred may fuse aggression, such as in power to act, in creative power…everyone has a different manner to let out negative emotions,  which are so deep in us …some are aggressive and hit their wives or kids , others go to watch football to smash each other’s faces  ..others do sports and so on…Due to playing music , we let out all our negative emotions…

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
So far, the best gig we have ever given, was at the best festival in the world which is  Obscene Extreme in 2009 and we hope to do it again ,right down there…  We give our best and  our approach to it is the same, no matter if the club is small or big  or it is a big festival …We do everything that’s in our might…

7.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?
At the moment we are preparing a few gigs to promote our new material..hopefully we will organize a tour …we will see…we are craving for gigs and we are open to new offers….

8.On the new album you had done a 'My Dying Bride' cover, what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?
This decision was spontaneous …I Heard this song one Day, and I thought that…fuck…if we play it faster that will be a great track…I did care not to make a “ typical cover” majority of bands make. Moreover, it was supposed to be a different type of a track, not in our style..

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal and grindcore?
We got many positive reviews from different parts of the world and we hope it will be similar in case of our new record.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We are not planning to change anything regarding our music so far. We do not intend to experiment. I think it is gonna be even more brutal..

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
For sure it is a kind of a resultant of our fascinations related to death metal ,grind core and punk.
I am not keen on extreme music , and it doesn’t matter if we call it black death grind gore crust punk or thrash metal...


12.What are some of your non musical interests?
Music is a great part of my life because apart from making music I teach drums and deal with recordings. In my free time I like cooking something good, watching a good film or reading a good book.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanx a lot for the interview. Check out our new material . Regards to all the readers. Support the stage and see you at gigs!!

MatraK AttaKK Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

MatraK AttaKK is a 6 piace crust/grindcore band. We all come from different bands. Most of us are busy with music since quite a lot.. Some of us where playing hardcore/D-beat,some anarcho-punk/crust, some Thrash/black metal, some punk/ska. And we are mixed up in the darkest way, but with a lot of energy.
MatraK AttaKK comes from the ashes of S.Y.N. :4 of us where playing here since 2013, then in 2014 the drummer and one singer left, so we kept on playing with a different drummer and singer.We changed so much in a positive way, that we decided to change name.

2.In June you had released your first album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

All the songs of the CD are a mixture of what we were since 2013, when 4 of us where toegether in the band S.Y.N. : when the new drummer and new other singer joined, it was clear that we were going to change, and gladly!Everything became faster,shorter and louder.
So now, in grind we crust, no doubt about it!

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

There we also put our different backgrounds: in the CD most of the lyrics are anti-psychiatric, then some are about war, shit-system, post nuclear visions...

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'MatraK Attakk'?

I guess it just sounded cool when Mosh, our singer, send us all a message for having a new name.After some of us, gave a meaning to it. It's about 'one of the thousand victims of psychiatry and fascism'. A Matrak is the police's cosh (baton, billy club, nightstick).

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

If you see MatraK AttaKK live, you see a lot of people on the stage and 4 going crazy: a lot of energy, rage, cables everywhere, falling pieces of drum, falling drummer, falling singer, singers running around, guitar in the front...check on youtube if you're curious :)
Show at Kinky star gent with Altered State https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRxlz6DO42E (Duisterdom)
Show with MDC and Silence means death in aalst : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt1EfuIkbHA (Weapon of mass destruction, newer song)

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

yes soon! In September a gig at a friend's birthday and 25september with Napalm Death and Silence Means Death in Brussel, and we can't wait for it!About a future tour it's going to be in march, but has to be fixed with a driver this time.Last tour was amazing but we went with 2 cars and 3 of us driving.We went to Rotterdam,Groeningen,Luik,Bremen(2 times),Leipzig and Berlin(2 times) so it wasn't that much of driving, but to go further we need some help to drive, and to be all together in a van :) for 2018 we are going to Indonesia, if i can fix everything so far, but I'm already busy with it, some friends there are going to help us!

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

We received the help of 2 DIY labels to release our CD(Vleesklak Records and Dead Punx Records), but we are never going to be signed with a exclusive contract: it takes away all the freedom, and mostly bigger labels just ask you money to tour with big bands. we dont need this shit.we like the DIY scene.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of crust and grindcore?

I'm experiencing it now on stupid facebook: before there was myspace to do all this.I dont like using fb, but it's a easy way to share your music.We fixed the previous tour online, in the DIY network. A lot of people from all over the world are sending us greetings and appreciation: that's nice.some want to do splits with us,some want our songs for compilation: that's all great!

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We are going more and more grind, but we'll never be purely grindcore: we are 6 people in this band: our drummer is a grindcore fan, and you can hear it!I personally like 80s sounds in punk/crust/hardcore and grindcore, the other singer likes black/thrash metal as well, our bass player likes punk, the 2 guitars are also really different ppl, one likes it more crusty and the other grinds more.The results are the latest songs of the CD : Fuck shit up, Matrak AttaKK, Duisterdom...you'll hear the new unreleased songs in the next recordings around october 2016.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We are two people answering the interview luckily, so you won't read too many bands:
Jona  : Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Haemorrage, old Sepultura, Obituary, some grind
Cristina : Plasmatics, Thulsa Doom, old Detente(w/ Dawn Crosby), Harum Scarum, Lost World..and fuck yes, Bonnie Tyler as well.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

The wrong two ppl to ask ehe..we run a little diy booking thing and we organize other bands in belgium,therefore we make flyers, we cook and we make party's.The others of the band like to travel, but they are also too much into music.ehe

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thankx for giving us the opportunity to  say something and spread our music and message(s) :) we are on youtube and bandcamp.just check us out.hope you enjoy.

Sunlights Bane/Geist/Seeing Red Records/2016 Split 7 Inch Review


  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  7  inch  between Michigan's  Sunlights  Bane  and  England's  Geist  which  will  be  released  in  September  by  Seeing  Red Records  and  we  will  start  off  the  review with  Sunlights  Bane  a  band  that  plays  a  mixture  of  d  beat  and  grind.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  brutal  grindcore sound  that  uses  a  great  amount  of  blast  and  d  beats  along  with some death  metal  growls  and  angry  hardcore  style  shouting  and one  of  their  tracks  are  very short  in length  and  high  pitched  screams  can  also  be  heard  at  times  and  both  songs  also  sticks  mostly  to  a  very  fast  and  heavy  sound  while  also  bring  in  a  slight  black  metal  influence  and  some  mod  paced  sections,  the production  sounds  very  powerful  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Sunlights  Bane  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  b  beat  and  grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Spoke  of  the  Cancerous  Void".

  Next  up  is  Geist  a  band  that  plays  a  mixture  of  d  beat  and  grindcore.

  Their  side  of  the  split  starts  out  with  a  very  fast  and  aggressive  sound  along  with  some  power  violence/hardcore  style  shouts  and  the  music  also  incorporates  a  great  amount  of  d  beat  elements  while  also  mixing  in  the  heaviness of  grindcore  and  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  fashion  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts,  the production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  angry  themes.

 In  my  opinion  Geist  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  power  violence,  d  beat  and  grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Location  Data".

  In  conclusion  I  feel  this  is  a  very great  sounding  split  and  I  would  recommend  it  to  all  fans  of  d  beat,  power  violence  and  grindcore.  8  out  of  10.

MatraK AttaKK/Self Titled/2016 CD Review


  MatraK  AttaKK  are  a  band  from  Belgium  that  plays  a  mixture  of  crust  and  grindcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  and  self  titled  2016  album.

  A  very  distorted  amp  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  d  beats  and  death  metal  growls  as  well  as  some  punk  style  vocals  and  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  influenced  by  crust  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  elements  of  grindcore  van  be  heard.

  Most  of  the  tracks  are  very  short  in  length  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow, mid  paced  and fast  parts  while t he  music  also  brings  in a  great  amount  of  mid  80's  and  early 90's  influences  and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  clean  singing  and  there  is  only  a  brief  use  of  guitar  leads  and  some  of t he  riffs  also  bring  in  a  little  bit  of  melody  and  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical instruments  that  are  present  on  the recording.

  MattraKK  AttaKK  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes old  school  hardcore,  punk,  crust  and  grindcore  and  mixes  them  together  to  create  a  musical  sound  of t heir  own,  the  production  sounds  very  raw  yet  heavy  at  the  same  time  while  the  lyrics  cover  political  and  real  life  themes.  

  In  my  opinion  MattraKK  AttaKK  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  crust  and  grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out t his  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE "No  Self  Defence"  "Duisterdom"  "GasWar"  and  "Fuck  Shit  Up".  8  out  of  10.
