Vorkuttah a lansat albumul de debut "Lost Forever"


Vorkuttah este un proiect one man band din Chisinau, Moldova creat de catre Vladimir Lensky, cunoscut ca fondator al trupei The Cursed Strain. Pe 26 septembrie 2018, Vorkuttah a lansat albumul de debut intitulat "Lost Forever". Acesta contine 6 piese intrumentale in stil post metal cu o incarcatura emotionala care vine sa descrie trairile interioare ale artistului. Interesant este si numele band-ului, Vorkuttah, inspirat probabil de la Vorkuta - un oras minier din Republica Komi, Rusia, situat la nord de cercul polar arctic, oras care in timpul Uniunii Sovietice a fost infiintat pentru a sustine gulagul Vorkutlag.

Interview with Dead Beat (Experimental Crust/Hardcore band from Athens, Greece)



BB: Hello and welcome to our pages!
Dead Beat: Hello! Thank you for this interview and your support!

BB: How the Dead Beat band has started, give us a short story.
Dead Beat: The band was formed in March 2016 with the purpose to experiment mainly in extreme music such as hardcore, crust, grind etc. We were rehearsing for a short time of period in order to create a bond as a band and at the beginning of May 2016 we started the recordings of “ΠΑΡΑΝΟΙΑ” EP at Feedback Sound Studios. The EP was released a month ago in digital format, free to download by anyone who’s interested in our band.

BB: On may 9th 2018 you have released the first debut release named “ΠΑΡΑΝΟΙΑ” (Paranoia). How was the whole creation process? I’ve noticed that you have added some interesting musical instrument like trombone, trumpet, tsampouna and some different vocals. You knew from the start how the release should sound or it came natural in the composing/recording process?
Dead Beat: The main composing parts were formed individually. However during the recordings we managed to put together what we had in mind right from the beginning; to combine extreme music with all kind of different musical instruments, which usually you don’t encounter in the kind of music we chose to focus. All these instruments gave a completely different touch on the final result of the release which eventually helped us a lot as group but also individually, to realise the true meaning of experimenting. I personally believe that it helped me explore and understand new concepts in music and this motivates me to work and experiment a lot more in the future. 

BB: All these vocals and instruments mentioned above are band members or guest musicians in the band?
Dead Beat: I am glad you asked this question so I have the opportunity to present all the people who contributed to this EP. We consider all of them as members of the band since, as mentioned above, without them the final result would have been completely different. I want to thank them for everything and I wish to work with each and everyone of them again in the future.
Charis. Z. - Trombone, Gregory R. - Vocals, Thalia P. - Vocals, Lambros S. - Vocals, George S. - Vocals, Lina K. - Vocals, Petros K. - Trompet, Dinos Z. - Tsampouna.

BB: All the songs from the album are written in greek, can you please tell us, lyrically what’s the main message of the album? (Or you can tell us the story of one particular song).
Dead Beat: The main subject of the release is the depression, its existence and its various stages while evolving as illness. For example the first song called "Κισσός" (Ivy) describes the rooting and spreading of the illness and it is compared to the plant Ivy; the song “Eλπίδα" (Hope) describes the fight that gives someone who is diagnosed and has also personally realised that suffers from this illness (there are many cases that the person diagnosed with depression does not realise nor accepts it which has grave consequences). I personally believe that the depression is one of the worst illnesses worldwide and if you fight it effectively then in some cases can be positive results; for example the person who suffers could eventually gain something positive during this painful process [this is mentioned in the song "Σκοτάδι" (Darkness)]. I would also like to mention that this release is dedicated to the souls of all the children who have been victims of war; a thing which is implicitly related with the theme of the release.



BB: Dead Beat is a side project band? Because as I know some of you are playing in some different bands.
Dead Beat: No, Dead Beat was formed as a band and not a side project and the reason we formed it is, as mentioned previously, to experiment. Moreover, aside of knowing each other for a long time, we also play in other bands together (with the guitarist we play together in Slavebreed, with the bassist we play in Tantalum, etc.). So there would be no meaning in playing something that we already play in our other bands. Allow me also to mention that the drums are recorded by a good friend, Vangelis F. (Chaotic End, Paroxismos) however from now on our new drummer is going to be Adde M. (Birdflesh, General Surgery).

BB: “ΠΑΡΑΝΟΙΑ” will be released on cd’s/vynils any time soon? Have you tried to release your album via some webzines or some labels?
Dead Beat: There is a plan to release this EP in physical format however nothing is sure yet regarding to when. A number of labels and distros were offered to release it in tape and vinyl however the time was passing and nothing really happened since the songs were long ago recorded. The initial plan was to release it through my distro (Noise Attack) however the cost was high (along with the costs of recording, mixing and mastering). So for the time being I chose to upload it on bandcamp so anyone interested can download it gratis (https://deadbeatexperimental.bandcamp.com/releases).

BB: I know that you’re playing guitar in Slavebreed too. Your last album “Dethrone the Architect” was released in 2012 and the last release was a split with Birdflesh out in 2015. Should we expect a new release this year?
Dead Beat: We are currently on the preproduction of a new release, after a long period of time as you also mentioned. Unfortunately we do not have a specific deadline since along the way we may encounter difficulties, or ideas can change etc. For example at the beginning we started working on a new EP, however we ended up working on a complete new release.

BB: Do you have any final words for our readers?
Dead Beat: Thank you for the interest you showed and your support! Unfortunately I have never been to your country, however I hope to visit you next year! See you!

8 iulie 2018 - DIY Live: P.F.A. (hc/thrashcore, HU) & NAURU (powerviolence/hc, HU) + Local Support


Salutare prieteni!Brutal Basarabia impreuna cu Ministerul Subculturii si-au unit fortele si isi propun sa exploreze diverse stiluri muzicale din zona undergroud inclusiv punk, hardcore, crust, grindcore si alte subgenuri prin organizarea concertelor live. Primul concert din seria DIY Live va avea loc pe 8 iulie 2018 la care sunt invitate doua trupe din Ungaria.

Line up:
P.F.A. (hardcore punk/thrashcore, Veszprém, Ungaria)
https://www.facebook.com/pfasidviciousisalive/
https://pfaquitcallingusthrashcore.bandcamp.com
https://soundcloud.com/wearepfa
Influentati de trupe precum Black Sabbath si NOFX, cinci prieteni din Veszprém, Ungaria au hotarat prin 2006 sa dea un nume rau punk-ului si s-au apucat de muzica. Au ales sa cante un punk rapid cu influente thrash. De-a lungul timpului au lansat 8 materiale discografice printre care doua split-uri cu NewDeadProject si Dance or Die.

NAURU (powerviolence/hardcore, Veszprém, Ungaria)
https://nauru.bandcamp.com/releases
Nauru este un trio band din acelasi oras, care de asemenea au ales sa cante muzica rapida dar ceva mai apasatoare si anume au combinat muzica powerviolence/grindcore/hardcore/punk. Este o trupa tanara, formata in 2017 si au lansat in acelasi an primul material discografic numit "I".

WALK ALONE (crossover hardcore, Chisinau, Moldova)
https://www.facebook.com/walkalonemdhc/
https://walkalone.bandcamp.com/
Walk Alone este o trupa hardcore punk/crossover din Chisinau formata in 2011. Este probabil unica trupa din scena hc/punk si cred ca una din cele mai perseverente trupe de pe la noi. Au la activ un demo, un EP si un album de studio numit "Warm-Blooded" lansat in 2016.

SELF PROGRAMMED DEAF (groove metal, Chisinau, Moldova)
https://www.facebook.com/SelfPD/
S.P.D. este o trupa formata in 2010. De atunci au trecut prin mai multe schimbari de componenta si de stil ca acum sa dea cu un groove metal straight in your face.

Interview with Mark "Barney" Greenway (Napalm Death)



BB: Hello and welcome to Moldova.
Mark: Hello and thank you.

BB: Napalm death has been together for 37 years now, it’s quite a long time. Looking back how would you describe this journey and what’s the secret of the longevity?
Mark: It’s a microcosm of life itself so there’s been many good, sometimes bad, sometimes average experiences, but it’s been something that 99% of people will never do, so for that we have to be thankful and of course to be able to make music like napalm death with your own ideas is great, it’s not something to be taken easily, it’s a very big thing actually.

BB: As a band, you have an impressive amount of releases over the years. From where do you get the inspiration and what drives you to go on?
Mark: We just seem to have the impetus to carry on. Of course there are days when it’s not such fun for various reasons but generally speaking we always have inspiration and we seem to get results for ourselves that make it worthwhile in terms of creativity, that pushes you forward. In the 90s was difficult for the genre so what we decided that we wanted to just carry on and we did, when not so many people were turning up for concerts, then we decided: let’s just carry on, a lot of bands went but we stayed. 


BB: Regarding the napalm death’s lyrics, the human and animal rights is an important subject to you. Do you think that the perception and the awareness of the society about it has been changed over the past 20 years?
Mark: I think there’s a lot more recognition now. The animals are sentient beings , of course they are, it’s obvious but I think there’s a lot more realization that you wouldn’t behave to human beings the way human beings behave sometimes to animals. So what’s the difference? Ok they can’t communicate in the same way that we can but they certainly have the nervous systems on their ability to feel pain, we know this.

BB: Punk is a big lyrically and musically influence for you. What does punk culture mean to you?
Mark: Well it means being free to express ideas and choosing making your own choices, not being told by somebody else what to do or how to style the band. Independent thought is always our kind of goal. Also then music, punk music, hardcore punk from the mid 80s to late 80s.

BB: I’ve noticed that you do really enjoy the live shows. Despite the long tours and the tiredness you put a lot of energy on the stage. How important are live performances to you?
Mark: My attitude is : you’ve got to make it the best it can be. If you don’t - you’re cheating the people that coming, because people don’t have to come and pay to see a concert though, they can go and do something else, so surely you make it as good as you can.

BB: How the WINTER ASSAULT TOUR is going so far?

Mark: The Winter Assault Tour has been great, Eastern Central Europe it’s been fun, Czech which we’ve done many times, Ukraine, now here in Chisinau, after Romania and then to finish off in Hungary. 


BB: What are the Napalm Death’s plans for the near future?
Mark: We’re still working on next album, next studio album that will come when it comes and then we got just some touring lined up before the end of the year.

BB: Have you ever imagined how would your life have been if you were not a part of napalm death?
Mark: Well I started off as an engineer that’s what I was doing in car industry so probably would have done that until machines took over the jobs.. but there are many things, I’ve always been a person that in life I feel that I want to do several different things, not just one thing so whenever napalm death is over for me or maybe the other guys then I will look to do something else...

BB: Can you recommend to our readers a few of your favourite books?

Mark: I actually read a lot of soviet history, that’s my favorite subject, well that’s what I want to do…I would love to be like a historian soviet, you know, academically. There’s one on North Korea that I’m reading right now, which examines the psychology of North Korea, not necessarily the thing that everybody already thinks that they know but the psychology, what makes people that way, I can’t remember the name of the book I must be honest. I read a "Mitrokhin Archive" which is actually a book of KGB, all the agents that were in the KGB are all listed in this book. There’s a book called "Stasiland" which is about East Germany, which is more light, less technical details but more about the experience of living in East Germany during the soviet era which is pretty interesting. It’s more aimed at casual readers, it’s not a very cold history book but it’s really good read actually.

BB: Do you have any final words for those who will read our intervierw?
Mark: Thanks, it’s nice to be in Moldova, thanks to people supporting us and I realized that this concert happen because several people got together and it’s actually quite humbling to discover that.
