HI! HOW ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU? Hi! We are just fine. It’s really cold here in Sweden. A lot of snow and ice everywhere. HELLO GUYS! „WORLD END CARNAGE” IS OUT AND QUITE IMPRESSIVE. ARE YOU CONTENT WITH EVERYTHING? HOW ARE YOUR FEELINGS NOW AFTER WORK IS DONE? Hello, man! Yeah, we are satisfied with the way the album came out. I think the songs are pretty good and the sound is good, too. Of course there are always some things you could have done better but what the hell… It’s just a grindalbum. AS YOU ARE A QUITE NEW BAND IN THE METAL SCENE COULD YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO OUR READERS?! WHAT DOES THE BAND NAME MEAN? We are just some good friends that decided to start a grind band together. We have all been playing in other bands since many years back. Me and our bassplayer play in BIRDFLESH. I am also active with GENERAL SURGERY and SAYYADINA. We came up with the band name at the same time as we started the band. Actually I don’t know what it means. We just thought it sounded cool. TOBBE LEFT THE BAND. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO THE CHEMISTRY OF YOURS? DO YOU ALREADY HAVE A NEW SUBSTITUTE? OR WILL ADDE HANDLE THE VOCALS FURTHERMORE? Since I also sing in BIRDFLESH, it was no problem doing the vocals on “World End Carnage”. We haven’t found a substitute yet, but I hope we’ll find someone soon because we want to play live again. If we won’t find someone ‚til next album, I guess I will sing on that one, too. AND HOW DID YOUR COLLABORATION WITH LISTENABLE START? ARE YOU CONTENT WITH THEIR PROMOTIONAL WORK? When we had recorded a 6-song demo, we sent three songs from it to some labels. LISTENABLE liked it a lot and wanted to hear more. So we sent the three more songs that they liked as well. They offered us a deal and we signed. We are absolutely satisfied with their work so far. The record seems to get good promotion. THE ARTWORK OF YOUR ALBUM IS VERY GORY. WHO HAD THE IDEA? I ASSUME YOU LIKE ZOMBIE/ HORROR MOVIES. WHICH ARE YOUR FAVOURITE ONES? Actually it was LISTENABLE who came up with the artwork idea. The artwork has been made by a guy named Sven and we liked his work. Of course we like horror movies. I really like Asian horror. Ju-On, The Ghost, Dark Water, The eye and Ringu are some of my favourites. WHICH LYRICAL CONCEPT STANDS BEHIND “WORLD END CARNAGE”? EXCEPT FOR THE OBVIOUS ONE? WILL BUSHS RELECTION BE THE END OF THE WORLD? There is no lyrical concept at all really. The lyrics are just about death, murder, piss and stuff like that. I don’t know how to write „serious“ lyrics, and I don’t want to. Maybe Bush will create the world end carnage. I hate politics. COULD YOU TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT THE PRODUCTION PROCESS? HOW WAS WORK IN SOUNDLAB STUDIOS LIKE? DOES THE SOUND FIT YOUR EXPECTATIONS? We recorded and mixed in two weeks. Mieszko is very easy to work with. He really knows this kind of music and he is very talented. We knew that the sound would be good because we were so satisfied with the demo that we recorded in Soundlab as well. I think we will work with Mieszko in the future. YOUR SONGS ARE RATHER STRONG BUT SIMILAR, TOO. WHICH IS ONLY NATURAL IN THE GRIND GENRE. DO YOU PLAN TO INTEGRATE NEW INFLUENCES IN THE NEXT RELEASES OR DON’T YOU GIVE A FUCK ABOUT VARIETY? There won’t be any more variety. I think the new songs will be more brutal. We won’t come up with something new and unique, just pure old-school grindcore. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE CURRENT SWEDISH DEATH/ GRIND SCENE? TOO MANY BANDS? TOO MANY COPYCATS? ANY INTERESTING NEW INFLUENCES OR UNDERGROUND BANDS WHICH HAVE TO BE DISCOVERED? The swedish grind/ death scene is pretty big. Many good bands. But I prefer the bands from Eastern Europe. Bands like INGROWING, DEAD INFECTION and NEEDFUL THINGS. Everyone knows the Swedish scene already. WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER INTERESTS BESIDES MUSIC? Well, not too many interests besides music. I’d say movies, food, girlfriend, some video games and drinking beer with my friends. AND DO YOU ALREADY HAVE PLAYED MANY GIGS AND WHERE? ANY FUNNY STORIES BEING ON TOUR? No, we have just made a few shows here in Sweden. Nothing special. Just local shows and at a birthday party. Oh yeah, actually we played on a festival camping, Sweden’s biggest festival, Hultsfred. It was cool. Everybody was drunk and we played in the grass in the middle of the day. Sun, beer and grind, ha ha ha!!! So unfortunately no funny tour stories yet. WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU LIVE IN GERMANY AND WHAT CAN/ COULD WE EXPECT? We need to find a vocalist before we can play live. We would love to come to Germany and play. It would be violent fucking grind molestation! Hope we can come soon. ANY LAST GRINDING WORDS? If you are into grindcore and death metal you should check us out! You won’t regret it. Take care and keep on grinding! CHEERS!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR TIME AND GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR FUTURE!
