Interview with WHORESNATION

“We want to touch more people and in different scenes. People are mostly wrong about Grindcore, we wanna change that.”

People say you’re very fast, if we put a metronome on your music, what would be the XXX? What does it correspond ?

280 bpm average on that record probably. It matches what we’re used to do. We’ve always tried to be as fast as we can since Tonio, our drummer, joined the band. Grindcore has been extended, looks like our addition is outrageous speedness.

 

Your grindcore is more and more tinted with death metal, can you tell us why / how ?

You may be right. For this album we’d really had in mind to simplify riffs and songs in general while adding a hint of Death Metal. We’ve always listened to this genre, particulary our good old dodoss of a drummer. The actual scene and its amazing band (Necrot, Phrenelith, Undergang, Blood Incantation) may also have rubbed off on us.

 

Your last album is even more massive than the others, how did it go with the recording / mix / mastering ?

We tried to do the best we could with what we had. After writing all the song we recorded at our drummer’s, it was a short pre-production demo that happened to be really useful as a work base. We had never been that ready for a studio session thanks to this. We recorded at Disvlar Studio, ran by our friend Steph Lawansh in a nice collective house outside Besançon. We’ve always wanted to work with William Blackmon since we loved what he did with influential bands for us, like Gadget or The Arson Project. That’s why William was in charge of the Mix and Mastering, we’re very lucky having worked with him, communication was smooth and the result was really satisfying. It was our first remote mixing session ever, we were quite sceptical but this luckily turned out to be our best sound on record!

 

After years of DIY coproductions with many labels, why did you choose Deaf Death Husky & Throatruiner for this album ?

To be honnest, as an active touring band it’s easier to have the least label involved as possible, it’s a really down to earth stocking problem. We’ve decided to work with Deaf Death Husky records since one of us is runing the label and we thought that would be easier to provide records to our own network. Throatruiner Records might be a surprising label for Grindcore band and that’s why we asked them to release the record. We want to touch more people and in different scenes. People are mostly wrong about Grindcore, we wanna change that.

 

« Mephtism » being out soon, you who always tour a lot, do you have tour plans ? some ideas ?

The Mephtism campain will last longer than planned since we had been a bit optimistic schedulewise but still, we have some tours upcoming for the album promotion, we’re touring Japan in July, will follow several European tours, first one being a serious roadtrip with Warfuck in October, we’d really like to go back in the States but west coast this time, probably spring 2019. We’ll of course always be busy with one shot gigs around!Now we’re a metal band we really want to take the album promotion seriously and play it as much as we can.

 

How is the « scene » in your areas (shows, bands, labels…) ?

Here in Prénovel it’s rather quiet. But in Besançon there are much things going on, but rather rockish. We have also some DIY events, we are also involved in the few grindcore attacks in town under the name of Holy Grind. But to be honnest we feel closest to our grind mobster gangs in Lyon, Strasbourg or Les Vosges. The great east of France is rather active and full of cool bands.

 

Do you have side-projects ?

We still have some but less than before. Pibe plays in Buffet Froid (mincdegore), Disköse (raw punk), Lust For Death (Stenchcore) and Grossel (mincecore) together with Lopin who also plays in Contractions (indie rock). Tonio gets drunk, smokes weed and sporadicaly plays bass in another band.

 

Do you have band names that you like very much and people should know ?

There are a lot, but let’s try to focuss on actual bands : Scum Of The Earth, Ona Snop, Farsas, The Mens Toilet, Mortify, Crash Syndrom, Vomi Noir, Bad Rites, Hordür, Uhl, Satan, the whole Winnipeg Grindcore scene, Deterrence, Bongthrower. Cool bands.

 

Btw, who is « Rémy” from “Rémy sans patrie » ?

It’s you, it’s me, it’s everybody. You don’t chose your family, you don’t chose your country but it’s your choice. Wether you love it or you hate it. La France Pue.

Interview with LØVVE

Interview with LØVVE

“We all know, with our experience, that a band’s life always goes really fast so we acted quickly rather than letting things drag on.”

Quick introduction, where are you from ? what are your other bands ? How did you decide “we’re gonna make a new band, and it’s gonna be fast music” ?

Hello, we come from Tours, France.

Giny (singer) : I play guitar in Sisterhood Issue (punk hardcore), my oldest band. I play bass guitar in Sueurs Froides (punk rock), I also have another band, as a singer, called Alma (hardcore 90’s) and sometimes I go on tour with Nine Eleven as a live singer.

Simon (guitar) : I sing in Verbal Razors (Thrash Crossover) and I have another band in which I play guitar, Ed Warner (crust punk).

Richard (bass) : I play guitar in Nine Eleven.

Severin (drums) : I had a grind band, Crash Victim Cannibalism and Cromwell O (screamo) but these times I only play in Løvve.

At the beginning nothing was decided about the style of music, we have evolved in this direction due to Severin’s drumming, quite grind/fast, but anyway we were about to do fast music because none of us played this particular style before…

 

It’s a strong start for you, in one year you did two tours and one album, where was that ? how was that ?

It happened very fastly but it wasn’t premeditated even if we wanted to record quickly to be able to go on tour with an album. Moreover with four people almost jobless in the band, it’s easier to do it with no loss of time. Everything went well then, we booked week-ends in France and a tour last september in Europe (Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, France).

It was awesome, promoters, places, people who went to the shows… The welcoming was always perfect and moreover we sold a lot of cds : it’s great as a new band.

 

Did you planned to start as strong as this or did it came to you naturally ? What are your next plans ?

We didn’t planned it, but we all know, with our experience, that a band’s life always goes really fast so we acted quickly rather than letting things drag on. About what’s next, we’ll have 3 big week-ends in march, then a tour at the end of May with Nine Eleven (Spain, Portugal), then a twenty days tour in eastern Europe with Verbal Razors and Heavy Heart from Nantes.

 

Can you tell us more about the labels involved in the co-producion of your album ?

For the release of the album, it was Dirty Guys Rock from Tours. He’s a friend of us who set up this label, and he proposed us to release us.  Then there’s also Kalvaire Rcds who proposed us to participate to the co-production and finally Dingleberry Rcds in Germany.

 

Last but not least, how the “scene” going on in Tours ?

The scene in Tours goes very well. Since few years, there’s gigs around very often.

We figure it out that in France there’s a lot of microcosms in our different cities and that everyone is acting in his own way, and even has his own style of music sometimes. Everyone get involved, I mean we help each other to play in our towns and it participates to keep this scene alive. We realize that people doesn’t really know this town and that they think it’s a “dead town” but there’s more and more pubs with live music, so now it’s almost one gig each night ! There’s also more and more promoters, so we don’t have to complain.

 

Do you have band names that you like very much and people should know ?

Yep, there’s Pneu, Jarod, Real Deal, Le Kyma, La Grauss Boutique, Ultra Panda, Rodinal, Ubikande, Crackhouse… the list could be longer…

WARFUCK’s new album THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN!

WARFUCK’s new album THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN!

This is it! WARFUCK’s new album THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN will be released on May 14th 2018 through LIXIVIAT Records.

The french power duo grindcore band, touring like maniacs around the world since 2012, take dishes out unrelenting, hi-speed blast-beats, intense hardcore breakdowns tight, sick drumming and weird, dissonant riffs.

For their third album, the band has brought their music to the next level and released their strongest work to date with THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN, recorded, reamped, mixed and engineered by Serge Spiga at The Clockwork (Cremation, live sound engineer for Conan, Monolord, Grinding Delemont Festival, Yob, Electric Wizard, Cephalic Carnage…), mastered by Dan Swano at Unisound Studio (Nasum, Bloodbath, Millencolin, Incantation, Coldworker, Dark Funeral…), produced by their own new label LIXIVIAT Records. Artwork direction by the tortured soul of Hugo Charpentier (Mauvaise Foi Editions).

This mammoth record, including 15 songs in 23 min, features their strongest songwriting to date – while also delivering their most bone crushing breakdowns yet and terrifying, break neck speed.

Prepare for grinding ear rape…

New Arrivals & Restock!

New Arrivals & Restock!

This is a “back to basics” new arrival and restock from discs we have listened a lot thanks to Bones Brigade Records, Grinding Rebellion Records & more, welcome to:

  • The best disc ever recorded by Chiens (and a super cover from Jubs Contraseptik Tatoo), the finest and most aggressive power trio you will propably listen.
  • Lifespite / Fucking Invincible, this two “all stars bands” (Dropdead, Reproach, Blind TO Faith, Citizens Patrol, Daughters, Soul Control) have met on this piece of wax to offer a harshly negative hardcore that will take you down.
  • Re-issue of the first Weekend Nachos album for their last tour 2 years ago, a classic!
  • Tuer = nowadays fastest grindcore band from Switzerland, a must with double vocals, loud basses and smiles on their faces. This is mint.
  • TAG Crew “history of violence”, a hip hop trip from the streets of Leeds (Uk) by The Afternoon Gentlemen released on a classy orange transparent flexi 7′. More seriously, we also have new copies of TAG’s last masterpiece, “a history of violence” but this time with blast-beats included.
  • My Man Mike, second album released by the South Korean power trio (actually they are respectively from FR, USA & South Korea), a subtil mix of powerviolence, catchy riffs & hyper active vocals duet
  • Time to talk of The Arson Project, the swedish new generation of grindcore, hardocre/punk who have destroyed all Europe last summer with this new album (and first full-lenght) “23min of harsh audio violence – Mixing grind, hardcore, metal & punk with a furious overdose of misanthropic hate. FFO: Cursed, Dead in the dirt, His hero is gone, Masakari…”
  • About Brutal Truth, we’d better don’t talk too much as everything is said in the title “Evolution In One Take: For Grindfreaks Only ! Volume 2”, a very good album from the US masters, for fan of raw grindcore.
  • Coke Bust / Despised You, a split between two of the best powerviolence acts from th US.

As always, cheap shipping worldwide. Have some good holydays & support your local dealers.
