    • MAN MUST DIE – INTERVIEW


      Who are Man Must Die?

      Alan McFarland guitar, Joe Mcglynn vocals, James Burke drums.

      what DM style is the band?

      I wouldn’t say we were a straight up death metal band although we do draw influence from that genre. I would say we were an extreme metal band that incorporates all different types of music.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?

      Alan our guitar player was watching some trial on T.V i think the guy was accused of murdering someone and somebody in the courtroom shouted “That man must die” so it kind of came from that.

      What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?

      we don’t go out our way to sound like anyone we try to write music that we want to hear. Obviously people will think we sound like this or that band but if that’s the case it’s never done on purpose.

      What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?

      Our last record No Tolerance For Imperfection was definitely a big step up for us because of that record we got to tour with Machine Head. Rob Flynn heard that album and was blown away by it and asked us to join them on tour in the UK.

      What can fans expect to see at a show?

      Alot of energy and all round good time

      If there is something in your band that sticks out from other bands, what would it be?

      Like i said before we try to write music that we want to hear we never try and follow a scene we do what we do and if people like it it’s a bonus.

      What is your favourite curse word?

      CUNT! lol

      What does the band have lined up for the near future?

      we have set up a pledgemusic site right now trying to raise the funds to record our new album which is tottaly written and is sounding awesome. We are also playing the KIN HELL FEST in Leeds on the 28th of April and on the same day we drive straight from Leeds to support Aborted in the London Underworld so that should be fun haha.

      If you could look back on a single moment in the bands history, good
      or bad, what would it be?

      Probably the Machine Head tour that was insane playing in front of 3 thousand people every night. plus the Machine Head guys where really cool towards us.

      Craig Robinson – Guitars
      Jack Welsh – Guitars
      Chris Ryan – Bass
      Neal Mullen – Drums

      what DM style is the band?

      Party Slam.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?

      A silly story about Stony buying a £15 confetti cannon
      that turned out to be broken/our pretentious anti-image grind ethos.

      What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?

      I think we sound similiar to Blasphemer (Italy), Dying Fetus, Gorgasm,
      Devourment, Vomit The Soul etc. but I’m probably very wrong.

       

      What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?

      Playing the Malta Deathfest along side Beheaded and Carnal Decay
      to around 300 people. Was cool like.

      What can fans expect to see at a show?

      Grown men.

      If there is something in your band that sticks out from other bands,
      what would you say it is?

      What separates us from the other bands in the UKDM scene is that
      we’re not as good as them.

      What is your favourite curse word?

      Gash-dangler.

      What does the band have lined up for the near future?

      We have quite a lot of pretty cool gigs coming up all around the UK
      and Ireland, as well as Rape The Escape Festival in Vienna.
      Always looking for new shows though.

       

      We’re also releasing a three track EP around August time called “Partied In Half”.
      A preview of the artwork is up on our Facebook.

      If you could look back on a single moment in the bands history, good
      or bad, what would it be?

      I could look back on a really good gig, but instead I’ll look back
      on the time Jack shit in a bin on the A9. That was rough.

      LACERATION INTERVIEW!!!


      Who are Laceration?

      That’s a good question. For the past year and a half Laceration has just been me, Hamish, handling everything (guitars, vocals and drum programming). But I’ve decided it’s time to get on with it and I now have added Tom (Scatorgy/Parasitized) as a live musician for upcoming gigs and Morgan on bass.

      what DM style is the band?

      Brutal death metal. Moving away from dumb slams in favour of unrelenting brutal shit.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?

      It’s brutal and stuff. I think it’s pretty dumb now but I was 15 when I decided on it.

      What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?

      The debut album was influenced by Defeated Sanity, Disgorge, Disentomb, Condemned, Putridity Embryonic Depravity and bands of that nature.

      What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?

      Probably being signed to New Standard Elite Records. Either that or getting Jordan from Disentomb to do guest vocals on the debut album. I’ve always considered Disentomb one of my favourite bands.

      What can fans expect to see at a show?

      Stupidly heavy music and awkward stage banter.

      If there is something in your band that sticks out from other bands,
      what would you say it is?

      I’m not a normal death metal guy, I need to grow the hair a bit longer to fit in more.
      Nah in all seriousness it’s probably just the no gimmicks approach. So many bands rely on an image or dumb concept to get attention, I’m more about letting the music do all the work.

      What is your favourite curse word?

      Fuck.

      What does the band have lined up for the near future?

      The debut album is out at the end of February on NSE Records. First gig with the new line up will be at Jack Welsh Fest which is an all day death/grind thing happening in Edinburgh in April. After that hopefully we’ll spend some time touring in the summer.

      If you could look back on a single moment in the bands history, good
      or bad, what would it be?

      The biggest thing that’s happened in the bands history was really getting rid of all my original band members in 2011. I made the decision I had very specific goals in mind for Laceration and only now is it all coming together how I planned.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?The name was a collaborative effort, by culling ideas and picking the one that best represented the style of music. It also makes 16 points in Scrabble, we’re a four piece, so that’s four a piece!!What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Vader, Cryptopsy, Dying Fetus and the kin…What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?Turning up for rehearsal on time!!

      THEY FLESH CONSUMED – INTERVIEW


      Who are Thy Flesh Consumed?


      We are a 4 piece death metal band with three members in Norwich England and one from Tiefenstockheim in Germany.

      The current line-up is Callum Weaver – guttural vocals, guitar (studio only) & drum programming. Matt Hoban – guitar & drum programming. Dan Woodcock – guitar, drum programming & possibly live drums. Manuel Hiller – high vocals.

      What DM style is the band?
      I would describe it as brutal death metal.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?

      The band’s name came from Doom2 which I used to play religiously as a kid. I had it in mind for a band name for a while and I then later found out it is also paraphrased from a grisly part of the bible (proverbs 5:11) – which is why I used the numbers 5 & 11 on the TFC skull symbol.

      What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?

      Bands like Guttural Secrete, Despised Icon, Gorerotted, Disgorge, Degrade, Whoretopsy, Devourment, Ingested & Torsofuck.

      What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?

      We are still relatively new; right now for me I am just pleased with the positive reception we have been getting. It’s great to finally be writing tracks in a style that I want to be playing and have people appreciate it.

      What can fans expect to see at a show?

      When we hit the road I expect it to be very energetic. I really like to stomp around and keep moving when I do vocals to keep everything aggressively fast like the music. As for the others I know they head bang like crazy from playing with and seeing them in other bands.

      If there is something in your band that sticks out from other bands,
      what would you say it is?

      Probably Manny being German!

      What is your favourite curse word?

      Definitely fuck.

      What does the band have lined up for the near future?

      At the moment we are working to get the MCD finished.

      If you could look back on a single moment in the bands history, good
      or bad, what would it be?

      This band is so new but there are already lot of good memories, it’s hard to choose. I started this project alone in 2012. I think so far the best single moment was when the current line-up came together and I realised that I had something that works. I’m really happy to be working with people who are as committed to music as I am.

      Thanks for the interview!
      -Callum

      Cryptophile is Greg-vocals, Ash-guitar, Simon-bass, Crusty-drums.

      What DM style is the band?
      I would say a mixture of traditional death metal with elements of crust and goregrind.

      Where did you get the idea for the band’s name?
      We were just trying to think of a name that suited us and out it came.
      We had previously wrote four songs under a different name but didn’t really like were it was heading so we scrapped it and started again.

      What bands would you say you are similar to/influences?
      The influences vary for each ranging from Cryptopsy to Slayer to early Cannibal corpse the list goes on.

      What is the bands biggest accomplishment to date?
      We recently just played with Aeon and Dyscarnate which was our biggest show to date.

      What can fans expect to see at a show?
      Lots of headbanging, Gutteral vocals brutal songs and drinking.

      If there is something in your band that sticks out from other bands what would you say it is?
      We would say that overall sound is unique and the almost manic out of control approach to song writing.

      What is your favourite curse word?
      Cunt

      What does the band have lined up for the near future?
      We plan to gig as much as we can and we also plan to record our first album around the middle of the year so keep an eye on us and get ready for some filth.


      If you could look back on a single moment in the bands history good or bad, what would it be?

      Well with the band still in it’s infancy (only been going about 14 months) we would have to say that there isn’t a single moment were we haven’t enjoyed jamming and playing shows and will strive to keep up this attitude and try and spread our brand of filth.

INTERVIEW WITH ‘SPAWNED FROM HATE’.

 

Q: WHO ARE SPAWNED FROM HATE?Were a 4 piece from the Midlands. Dan Phipps -Vocals, Dave Hudson -Bass, Scott Smith -Guitars and Lee Foley -Guitars/drum programing although were working with a drummer at the moment so we may have some news on that soon.

Q: WHAT DM STYLE IS THE BAND?

A mix of old school and brutal death metal for the most part

Q: WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR THE BAND’S NAME?

The name was brought in by a previous band member and we kept it with his consent of course. We kind of liked it (me being a spawn of Possession fan boy) and stuck with it, where he got the idea from only he knows maybe I should ask him one day!!

Q: WHAT BANDS WOULD YOU SAY YOU’RE SIMILAR TO/INFLUENCED BY?

We draw influences from Death, Grind and Thrash, but our main influences would have to be Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Death, Deeds of Flesh, Dying fetus, Defeated Sanity, Cryptopsy etc. Basically heavy music with groove to bang your head toQ: WHAT IS THE BAND’S BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT TO DATE?

Has to be completing and releasing of our e.p. WITHERED AND DECAYED we’ve had reviews that for the most part have been mostly positive, we have had a couple of reviews that provided some constructive criticism on aspects of the EP, mainly regarding the production. This is understandable as we recorded and mixed the E.P ourselves as we are a self-funded we have taken this on board and will be looking at booking some studio time for our next release to improve

the production side of things.Q: WHAT CAN FANS EXPECT AT ONE OF YOUR SHOWS?

Were still learning as a live band we have only been gigging since November last year. For me playing live with a drum machine is different to what I’ve done before but it’s gotten us tight as a band. Anyone who sees us play can expect to see a band on stage having fun but still maintaining a professional stage presence. We just enjoy playing our music to people and getting a positive reaction, which is all we can ask for.

Q: IF THERE IS SOMETHING IN YOU BAND THAT STICKS OUT FROM THE REST, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IT IS?

Well we don’t have a real drummer at the moment and I play a 7 string bass they both kind of stick out and get a reaction But in all seriousness I guess were quite traditional in our overall death metal sound and very much back to the early 90’s in our approach rather than the constant blast beats and gutturals of a lot of current bands.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CURSE WORD?

Bell end seems to be my favoured term of endearment for my fellow band mates at the moment

Q: WHAT DOES THE BAND HAVE LINED UP FOR THE FUTURE?

As I briefly mentioned at the start of the interview we have been working with a drummer over the last few months that is learning the material and we’re looking forward to bringing him in as a full member soon. We are also in the stages of writing some new material which we will be recording and sending out to labels to hopefully get released, at present we’re looking at 5/6 new tracks in total, this may be more if the creative juices flow. From then we are just looking to promote the band and our music by playing live as much as possible to help spread the word.

Q: IF YOU COULD LOOK BACK ON A SINGLE MOMENT FROM THE BAND, GOOD OR BAD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

It’s an easy one as it’s a Bad and good moment all rolled into one

It would have to be the loss of one of our founding members Dan Brookes who left to join Warlord UK last summer this was easily the biggest change as we lost a guitarist and our front man in one go so we almost had to start again. It however turned into a massive bonus as both we and Warlord UK have profited from the move as we soon hooked up with Scott and not long after that we got Dan Phipps in on the vocals.

Brooksie and the Warlord UK guys are recording their third full length album

at the moment and we can’t wait to check it out. (Blatant plug for you there guys!!)Cheers for the interview and see you on the road

Dave, Dan, Lee and Scott
