Interview  with  Hadez  done  by   Patrick




1.Metal  hails   Hadez   I  believe  the  band  first  started  out  in  1986  What  gave  you  all the  idea  to  form  Hadez? What was the line up back then?


Scharack:  infernal hails Patrick, thanks for the support to the band it’s so appreciated, not many zines send us interviews, I think that we are a very UG band with a different way, no typical and cliché clone band. Hahaha.
Agressor: Hell.o to all crazy bangers into the UG way! And thanks for the support!!! Metal on!!!






2.Hadez  broke  up  in   1994  why  did  the  band  break  up? 


 Agressor: the only reason was the treason, the vocalist at that era tried to take over the band and wanted to pretend that the composer was full Aquelarre album. He published it in the credits of CD. That scum traveled to Norway using the band name. I was disappointed by this and I take a time to think. But the music never dies!!!





3.Hadez  re-formed  in  1998  why  did  the   band  decide  to  reform  after the  years  apart? How  do  you  all  feel  the  music  has  changed  over  the  years? Is  this  the  same  line-up  frome  the  90's  or   have  you  all added some  new  members?



Agressor: Yes, in that time of 4 years of band silence, I composed new tracks for the Even If You Die a Thousand Times album, also I know to the new guys for the band as Walter Crucifier (Guitars) and Frank Silence (Bass), the drummer OADM played in the ’94 and never lost contact with me; finally on vocals was the return of Ron King. We played some shows with.
But in the recording sessions Ron King left the band. After that Jose Moron (Dios Hastio – Peruvian Hard Core Crust band) joined the band as vocalist. The music changes its for the new members, they played in other way, more professional, and also we has better instruments and sound stuff. The feeling it’s the same all these years!!!





4. Hadez   released their newest  cd   "Morituri Te  Salutant"  through the  U.S  label  Paragon Rec.  how  did  you  all  come  in  contact  with  Mike  and  Paragon?



 Scharack: Mike is a best old friend, make many trades before Paragon Recs vs Pentagram Recs (my label with Oskar The Mutilator - Hadez drummer). I’m looking for a label to release the new album send promos and emails to many UG labels and the quickly answer of Mike is the best reason to work with him. And the time offered for editing in just four months, was what influenced our decision. In another label we would have easily waited one year. I respect to Paragon Recs and make a great work with the Morituri Te Salutant CD version.   





5.How  long  did  it take  to  write  and   record  the  new  cd   "Morituri Te  Salutant" ?  Does the  whole  band  take  part  in  the  writing  or  does  one or two  members  write  everything?


Agressor: The songs selection, composed and presentation is worked by all members, the recording process if you can get a bit long but as Agressor has his studio were not pressed with things like time. But I think we should make things a little faster lol. We work in this album two years. 



6.Does  Hadez  ever  play  live  very  often  or  do  you   prefer to  work  in  the   studio? Who  are  some  bands  you  have  shared  the  stage  with?



Agressor: yeah the rock music it’s created for live play!!! And metal music its created to play in hell to maximum volume all the time!!!

Scharack: live shows are the best place for the metal music. We enjoyed playing live in front of mutants possessed jajaja… I remember play with Malevolent Creation, Possessed, Agathocles, Nargaroth,… play with Possessed and our bastard friends of Ejecutor (Chile), a nightmare came true!!!



7.Are their any  tours/shows  coming  up  in  2015   that  the   readers  should  watch  out  for?  Has the band ever  gotten  to  play  outside  of  Peru? 



Agressor: We have for this year many tour projects as Colombian tour, Brazilian Tour and Europe Tour. But we don’t have a real live promoter for that. Work very hard on it.
I think important part of maintaining a band is playing live, this is a law to me; interacting with the public is insane. I respect to the real headbangers so much. We are always available to play and if we receive an invitation and that does not report economic losses we did not think twice and got on the bus, airplanes, boats, horses, jajajaja.





8.In  your   opinions  what  is  the  best  and  worst   thing  about  the  underground  metal  scene? And what does Underground Metal mean to  you?


Scharack: I think people that stays within the metal in a serious way, providing, creating and supporting with the sum of them can still speak of a scene; stay underground is also a fundamental part to the existence of a scene. With a handful of bands, zines, labels and bangers can make a solid and respected scene, not necessarily have to be thousands peoples to be considered a better scene. I ask the readers of this zine that are real with themselves and not be hovering in the metal just to be seen as the most extreme dose or giving false Satanism his turbulent teenage years. 


Agressor: For me Underground it’s a lifestyle, honor, loyalty and camaraderie is the rule to follow! No posers please!!!



9.I  believe  some of the  members  of the  band  started  up  "Pentagram Rec"  when  did  you  all  get  the  idea  to  form  the  label? What  are  some  things  you  look  for  when  signing and releasing a   band?



Scharack: It is hard work no doubt about it, someone had to do and we take the reins of this, because we believe that this will keep or give to that aura of scene and take you to be in total bankruptcy hahaha. I really hope that does not happen lol. Store sales are moderate enough to pay the bills and keep release new titles, we also sell to other cities of the country and abroad for the webstore. All day long we were visited by people from domestic and foreign bands that are on tour (as Hirax, Faith or Fear, Rotting Christ, Luciferian, Abrahel, Cauchemar, Mystifier, Ejecutor, U.Kulten, Mortal Sin, Naer Mataron, Abaddon Incarnate), zines editors, owners of labels that come to make trades (as comrades Dunkelheit Germany) and some other bangers from abroad. Good times accompanied by some nice cold beers and this always meeting new people, so we can see some future more in this war are passed.
Our releases are with Peruvian bands into the real UG only. Band as Putrid, Kay Pacha, Offensor, Throne of the Fallen, Deicidios, are really UG good stuff… 



10.What  are  some  of  your  current-releases  for  the  underground fans to  buy? Are  their  any  new  releases  coming  in  2015 that you  can  tell the readers about? Do  you  only  release  stuff  on  cd's  or  do  you  all  release  on  vinyl  and  cassette tapes  as  well?



Scharack: of course Morituri Te Salutant CD, will be available in a few weeks the tape version under the  bolivian label Rawblackult. Also we have some t-shirts strictly limited to 30 or 50 copies. And we have some copies of the Guerreros de la Muerte Boxset 3x LP vinyl (released by Nuclear War Now) and Aquelarre vinyl re-edition 2013 by Tahuantinsuyo Recs.
All stuff may be found on Pentagram Recs store and website.
Agressor: next stuff are a split 7EP with Ejecutor (Chile)!!!




11.Besides  Hadez  and the  label  are  any  of the  members  currently  working  with    side-bands? If  yes  please  tell the  readers  about  them.


Scharack: I’m in Nahual (guitar player), Diabolous666 (vocals / bass), and in another bands into the UG way… 666% metal all the time!

Agressor: I´m in Ergo a covers band with 80’s hits from English and Spanish bands. Rock and roll way. Deep Purple covers includes in the set list.




12.Hadez comes  out   of  Peru's  metal  scene  what  are  your  thoughts  on  the  metal  scene  in   Peru?


Scharack: Is not the best but has good bands. Not many people but the bangers are very devoted to the UG darkness.

Agressor: If you think come and see our scene will not be disappointed. Here's seriously involved people are the best.



13.Who  are  your   all-time   favorite  Peruvian  bands?  Are  their  any  new  bands  you   feel  the  readers  should  check  out?


Scharack: Of course Mortem is the best, great friends! Must pay attention to Putrid (Peru), that band is really good and has a great morbid sound!!! Also Vlad and Grave Desecration!!!
Agressor: Peruvian old bands from 70’s as Los Saicos, Los York’s, are really good bands. Listen to them… and from this time listen and support to Nahual, Rito Profanatorio and Putrid. 



14.Well  Hadez   we  have  reached  the   end  of  the   interview  do  you   all have  any   final  comments  for  the   readers?


Agressor: Thanks a lot for the support! Write us, we are interested in having contact with the bangers around the world, we respond to all.

Scharack: see you in hell… Greetings to all who kept alive the UG!!!

Metal  Regards
Patrick




Interview   with  Adriano  vocalist  and  Guitarist  for   Krueger   done  by    Patrick





1.Metal hails Adriano! how are things going with you this week? When did you first become interested in metal music? Who were some of the first bands you listened to?



Adriano: Metal fucking Hails, Patrick! Krueger is in full activity releasing new material, music videos and doing shows. I was infected with Metal in 1983, listening to Iron Maiden, AC / DC and Venom!






2.Adriano I believe you started Krueger in 1987 what gave you the idea to form the band? What was Krueger's original line-up? What is the current line up?



A: During the 80s, I became interested in death metal bands such as Mantas, Death, Possessed, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Devastation, Entombed, etc. I decided to mount Krueger in 1987 and the first cover we played live I believe it was Dethroned Emperor. The current line-up is me, Adriano Krueger, V & G, Thomas Abrantes, G, Ze Carlos, B, William Arantes, D.


3.How would you say Krueger's music has changed over the years? For the readers who have never heard Krueger how would you describe the music?




A: The Krueger's music has many characteristics of our main influences (Death, Obituary, Pestilence from Holland, Slayer of the first three albums, Kreator of the first three albums), but we always try to add our own characteristics using dissonant chords, picking harmonics fields for death metal, melodic and at the same time brutal solos, etc. The new compositions are increasingly morbid, despite keeping the melody, thrashy riffs, guitar duos, etc. Furthermore, my voice has become more grave in the course of time.

4.Krueger has recently released their second cd "Return To Death" how long did it take the band to write the music for the new songs? Does the wwhole band work on the music or does one member usually write everything?


A: Krueger does not follow a standard, like release an album every two years or something like that... The most important for us is the art within the tradition of Metal. The second album has songs composed in 1989 as Theaters of Greed, Mr. Time and Life and Death, as well as songs composed more recently as Return to Death, Imperfect and Flesh, Lust, Temptation. Usually, I write music and lyrics at the same time, then show them to the other members. Finally, we work at the arrangements together.






5.Who usually writes the lyrics for the band what are some topics/subjects you all write about?




A: The singer will experience the lyrics live, so I think that the natural thing is the vocalist must write the lyrics. The key theme is death. The greatest fear of mankind is fear of dying, other fears derive from this fear. Even songs like Money World and Technology Chaos have to do with human beings, their greed and death...



6.Krueger just released their first video for the song "Technology Chaos" how long did it take the band to make the video? Adriano are you and the other members of the band happy with how the video came out?

A: Almost two months. This video is generating a good feedback for us. The other band members were satisfied with the clip, so I agreed to release it.







7.Does Krueger have any plans to make anymore video's for the songs off of"Return To Death" release? If you could choose what song would you like to make a new video for?




A: We initially had three songs to choose one and make one music video. Then came the idea of doing a connection between the three themes of the three songs (war, death and lust), so we decided to invest in a trilogy of music videos. Besides the first video, showing the technological chaos being used for the destruction of mankind, we made a music video for the song “Flesh, Lust, Temptation”, with the participation of two Brazilian models, Yasmin Sani and July Santana, showing something like a dungeon of temptations in the middle of the war... And finally the third video, for the title track “Return to Death”, shows the chaos at the end of the war. Yasmin appears again in this third video, making the album art in video, which shows a naked woman wearing a gas mask.

8.Adriano you have been in the metal scene since the late 80's how do you feel the scene has changed over the years? Were you ever into tape-trading?
A: It has changed a lot, for sure. In the 80s I bought vinyl records, I recorded tapes and certainly did tape-trading. It was a magical time for Metal. In the '90s, with the arrival of CDs, the scene has changed a bit, but still had great releases from bands like Death, Obituary, Immolation, Pantera, Sepultura and others. I felt an even stronger change since 2K. Currently, there are countless bands, it is difficult to find someone doing something new and interesting. Many fans are content to listen to mp3 at home, many fans do not go to shows of small bands, which is not good for the scene as a whole. But we have always maintained the Krueger Metal as art in the first place, then we continue playing in new places, having a good time, drinking a lot of beer and making new fans and friends. The Metal and the brotherhood for us is the most important thing.



9.What is your opinion on web-zines and digital-downloads?

A: I miss the printed zines and I always buy physical material from the bands like albums, t-shirts, etc. But the Internet has joined people, it is now easier the communication process, by this point of view, it became better. I like the web-zines, of course. You can read in the phone anywhere, and with it, the amount of information increased. If we do not exterminate the paper zines, I only see positive aspects... Digital downloads are a way of knowing new bands and new albums. I also see it in a positive way. New media do not necessarily exclude the old media. And I will always buy physical stuff, this is way cooler and it gives further support to the bands. Listening to the album, enjoying the cover art and the lyrics, having a beer, is very cool!






10.In your opinion what is the best and worst thing about the underground scene today? And what does Underground Metal mean to you?





A: One good thing today is that many old bands are returning to activity, releasing albums, touring always including Brazil. This openness in communication with the whole world is also a cool thing. Today, we can share much more, to all corners of the world. The downside is that the scene is quite polluted, there are millions of bands doing the same thing, copying instead of creating new things. There's a lot of bands that see Metal as a business, forgetting the art, music and fellowship... these are bad things... I've had many disappointments. On the other hand, we have a lot of good people! Krisiun guys are real brothers, we played together, they are good people... The other day I met Alex Webster and the guys from Cannibal Corpse, great people too, it was a great honor for me and when these things happen, we like the band even more. Finally, Underground Metal is my life, is what I have done, is where I find my best friends and I'm delighted to live Metal! I see Metal as a brotherhood, a group of friends who enjoy the best music in the world and drink enough beer!
 



11.Adriano when did you first start playing the guitars? Are you self taught or did you take lessons when first starting out?


A: I started in 1986, my parents gave me my first guitar. My dad also gave me the idea of studying acoustic flamenco guitar, to learn the chords and solos. I did it for a few months and quit, I wanted to play Metal... You know, to compose songs of good quality, including the most extreme styles like death metal or grinder, you must know a bit of Harmony, chords, etc. Now everything is much easier with the internet videos, the kids have fun and learn a lot faster. I myself am still trying to learn! hahahahahaha





12.Who are some of your influences/favorite guitarists? Do you play any other instruments?



A: Well, there are many... I like those that compose good songs. Right now I think of Trevor Peres, Jeff Hanneman, Chuck Schuldiner, Patrick Mameli, Mile Petroza, Mike Sifringer and others. Some other guitarists are good soloists and influence me in some way, as James Murphy, Adrian Smith, Andy La Rocque, Dimebag Darrell, Steve Vai, Trey Azagthoth, Zakk Wylde, and others. I also try to learn acoustic guitar and I really like Paco de Lucía.




13.Adriano you also handle the vocals for the band when did you first become interested in singing/growling? Do you do anything special to keep your throat/voice healthy when recording or getting ready for a show? Who are some of your favorite vocalist?




A: Nobody in the band wanted to do the vocals, so I was forced to do so... hahahaha. To keep the voice I have a little secret, drink beer or whiskey! hahahahahaha My favorite singers are John Tardy, Martin Van Drunen and Chuck Schuldiner.




14.Krueger comes out of the mighty Brazil scene what is your opinion of Brazil's metal scene?





A: The Brazilian Metal scene is huge! Many quality bands in all states, festivals and concerts going on forever, like some huge Rock in Rio. For me, Brazil has become part of the world map of Metal from the 80s, with the arrival of Venom and KISS at 83, Iron Maiden and AC/DC in 85. Brazil has emerged as obligatory passage for great bands on tour, it moves the scene as a whole and this is very good! And the fans here are the wildest in the world, you can bet ...





15.Who are your all-time favorite Brazilian bands? Are their any new bands from Brazil you feel the readers should check out?



A: I'm a big fan of a band named Chakal. The guys are good people, we played with them and we chatted a little. I am obviously a fan of Krisiun and in the the 80s and 90s I listened to Sarcofago and Sepultura. We have other great bands like Vulcano and Korzus. We recommend some bands of our brothers like Monstractor, Psych Acid, Storms, Extreme Death and many others. Brazil is a huge metal barn!




16.Thank you Adriano for taking the time to fill this interview out.Do you have any final comments for the readers?

A: I want to thank you who followed the interview until the end, thank you Patrick for the great interview, and thanks for the metal fans around the world that give support, buy stuff from the bands and go to shows. Thanks, Metal & Beers! /,,/

Interview with Cardiac Arrest from the U.S done by Patrick on 12-20-14


Metal Hails 
Here  is  a  new   interview  done  with  one  of  the  best  bands to  come  out  of  the  Illinois   Metal  scenes.Cardiac Arrest  blend  old-school  death  metal   and  elements   of the  newer  scene  to  make  a  very  unique  and  aggressive  band.  If you  have  never  heard  the  band  before  this  is  a  great  band to   check  out  if you  are  a  old-school  Metal  maniac.
Keep  the  metal  going 
Patrick
fiendformetal@live.com





Interview  with  Adam Scott  Vocalist and  Guitarist  for  Cardiac  Arrest    done  by  Patrick
 
 
 
 
1.Metal  Hails  Adam   when  did  you  first  meet  the  other  members  of  Cardiac  Arrest? What  gave  you  all the  idea to  form    Cardiac  Arrest?How  did  you  all come  up  with  the  name  for  the  band?
 
A: Greetings Patrick!!! Well, we've gone through a lot of different changes through the years but the original lineup years ago, we went to high school and all. I just wanted play Death Metal and have an outlet. As far as names are concerned, we had a name but had second thoughts on it, then one day my friend/bandmate came asked me what I thought of Cardiac Arrest? Well, I guess that was that.
 
 
 
 
 
 
2.What  is  the  current  line up  of    Cardiac  Arrest? How  would  you  say    Cardiac  Arrest's   music  has  changed  over  the  years?
 
 
A: Other than myself, we have David Holland on Bass/vocals, Tom Knizner on Guitar/Vocals and Nick Gallichio on Drums. I can honestly say the influence still remains, of course when you have different guys there's going to be certain things that maybe a little different when they put their input in. They've been in the band for a long time now so there's a good chemistry.
 
 
 
 
3.  Cardiac  Arrest   is  getting  ready  to  release  their  new  cd   "And  Death Shall  Set You Free" through  Razorback Rec. how  did you  all come  in  contact  with this  great  label?
 
 
 
A: Yes, as a matter of fact, And Death Shall Set You Free just came out about two weeks ago. We've been friends w/ Billy at Razorback Records for a long time, we've always shared an interest in Horror Films, one of the common interests we've mainly shared. I guess you can say maybe the stars aligned themselves just right this time around when it came down to being on the mighty "Horror Hive"!!!
 
 
 
 
 
4.How  long  did  it  take the  band to  write  the  music  on    "And  Death Shall  Set You Free"? Does  the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or  does  one member  usually  write  everything?
 
 
 
A: Hard to say, the songs came out of ideas we've had since our previous album Vortex of Violence or before that even. We always write, it will never end. There are times I do come up with a lot of stuff, but everyone has their say in what we do on the songwriting end. There's no dictatorship here on that front.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
5.How  has  the  response  been  from  the  fans  so far? What  about  the   press?
 
 
 
A: The fans love it for sure, I think. Now the press? Hard to say at this point since "And Death.." is still pretty fresh. I can't wait to see what kind of shit will fly. BAHAHAHA!!!!
 
 
 
 
6.I have  seen  on  the  Cardiac  Arrest  facebook  page  that  the  band  will be  heading to  Europe  in  early  2015  what gave you  all the  idea to  head to Europe?
 
 
A: Indeed, this will be our first time over there. Of course that has been a long term goal of ours for a long time to do something like this overseas. It was just a matter of when.
 
 
 
 
7.Who  are  some  bands you  will  be touring  with? What  are  the  countries you   will  be  playing  in?
 
 
 
A: We will be on tour with NOMINON from Sweden. Quite honored to be doing it with them! Thus far at the time I'm doing this interview, the countries I know we WILL be doing are doing Sweden, Germany (4 dates at least), The Czech Republic, Poland, Belgium, The Netherlands. The tour will end at The Neurotic Deathfest in Tilburg, NL.
 
 
 
8. I  know  it  is  a  little  ways  off but  have you  all  decided  on  any  U.S  tours for  2015?
 
A: Not really, just a show here and there. We've toured North America before. We just don't have the time to do such endeavors for such a long period of time when holding down jobs and shit like that.
 
 
 
 
9.I  know  Cardiac  Arrest    have  played  a lot of  shows  over the  last  few  years  what  have  been  some  of your   most  memorable  shows?
 
 
 
A: For starters playing the Canadian dates on tour w/ Destroyer 666 and Enthroned was just plain mind blowing. Of course I can't neglect opening for Autopsy a couple years ago in Chicago. What a huge honor especially playing to such a huge crowd in our home town. Those are at least 3 of the top ones. I'd have to think long and hard about other ones. HAHA!!!
 
 
 
 
10.Besides  the  new  cd  coming  out  on  Razorback  Rec.  I  believe the  band  also  released  a split  7inch  with  Radiation Sickness  How  many  songs  are  on the  new  7inch?  Where  can  the  fans  pick  up  a  copy  of the  7inch?
 
 
 
A: The split w/ Radiation Sickness isn't out yet, it should be coming out in the spring of 2015 on Fat Ass Records out of Poland. I'm sure some distros out there will be able to carry it for sure, of course both Radiation Sickness and us will have copies for sale.
 
 
 
 
11.Besides  the   new  cd  and  7inch   does   Cardiac  Arrest    have  any  new  merchandise  coming  out  soon? Where can  the  fans  get  the  merchandise?
 
 
 
A: At the moment we have shirts for the new album out. Working on some other cool little things for merch. You never know what we'll come up with. You can go to www.cardiacarrestdeathmetal.bigcartel.com for merch.
 
 
 
12.Adam  besides  the  band  you  also  run  Death Dealer  distro  when did you  first  start  the  distro? Where  can  the  fans  see your  full distro  list?
 
 
 
I first started Death Dealer Distro almost ten years ago. I have a facebook page for it, my full list is up. Plenty of CDs, Vinyl, as well as Zines and other cool goodies!!
 
 
 
13.Do  you  usually  trade  or  buy  wholesale  with  other  bands and  labels? Are  you  currently  looking  for  new  bands and  labels to  work  with?  What  styles  of  metal  do you  carry  in  the  distro?
 
 
 
 
A: I am always looking for cool stuff to carry in the distro, from any labels from around the world. I predominantly carry Death Metal, but also some Black, Thrash or even the traditional Heavy Metal stuff too.
 
 
 
14.Cardiac  Arrest  comes  out  of  the  mighty   Illinois  metal  scene what  is  your   opinion  on the  scene  in  Illinois? 
 
 
A: I can't really speak for Illinois as a whole. Mainly cause a lot of it comes out of Chicago, not that say any other town has killer bands or anything. The scene is I guess you can say good. Saturated at times, due to being a lot of bands, and a lot of shows, which at times can be bad with dividing crowds and what have you. But I guess you can say it's better to have a couple options, when some other 'major markets' options are either Black Label Society or nothing at all.  
 
 
 
 
15.Who  are  some  of your  all-time  favorite  bands  from  Illinois? Are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out?
 
 
 
A: Cianide, Macabre and Impetigo are for sure all time. As far as newer bands? Some that are worth the time are Nucleus who are very unique and great. They Die Screaming is a very cool horror inspired Death Metal band too. I'd like to see both bands keep going for sure.
 
 
 
16.Adam  are  you  or  any  of   the  members  of  Cardiac  Arrest  currently  working  with  side-bands?If  yes  please tell the  readers  about  them?
 
 
 
A: Well, Tom has a band called Severed which he's had since 1995. Grindy sleazy punk driven Death Metal. Very fun listen and fun to watch as well!!! Nick also has a project which is Grind/Black Metal (I think, hehe)
 
 
 
 
17.Well  Adam  we  have  come  to  the  end  of  the  interview.Thank  you  for taking  the  time to  fill out this  interview   do  you   have  any  final   comments  for  the  readers?

A: Thanks a ton for the interview, thanks to those who read, get the new album as well as I hope to see some of you on tour in Europe!!!! ROT FOREVER!!!!

Endless Recovery--Resistant Bangers  7inch   {Witches  Brew  Rec..}
Endless Recovery  come  out  of Greece's   thrash metal  scene  with a  brand new  7inch .Featuring  two  songs  of hyper speed   thrash.Endless Recovery  do  a  great  job  of  writing  excellent thrash  anthems  with  extremely fast  and  catchy  drums  and the  guitars  are  equally  as  fast  with  some excellent  riffs  and few  solo's  mixed  in the songs.The  vocalist  does a  great  job   combing  gruff screams and  vocals  with  some  higher  pitched  screams  in a few  sections.If  you  are  a  thrash  maniac  then  I  would  suggest  getting  this  7inch  before  their  gone and I  believe  the  band  is  working  on a  new  cd  to  be  released  by  Witches  Brew  sometime  next  year.

Interview   with   Endless  Recovery   done   by   Patrick



1.Metal   Hails!!  when  did  the  members  of  Endless Recovery  first  meet? What  is  the  current  line  up  of  the  band?


Infernal hails and thanks for giving us the chance to say a few things about the band. Endless Recovery, were formed in 2011 by Michalis Moatsos (drums) who is the only original member left in the band. The current line-up consists of:
Michalis Skliros- Vocals
Tassos Papadopoulos- Guitars
Giorgos Skourtaniotis- Guitars
Panayiotis Alikaniotis- Bass
Michalis Moatsos- Drums




2.For  the  readers  who   have  never   heard     Endless  Recovery   how  would  you   describe  the  music?


Well, if we had to describe our music we would say that it's totally recommended to those who like their thrash fast, filthy and raw. We are five wasted guys who worship the 80's thrash metal especially the teutonic scene. So we guess that if someone is into those kind of things he will like our music.




3.  Endless  Recovery   is  getting  ready  to   release  their  new  7inch "Resistant  Bangers"  through  Witches  Brew  Records  how  did the  band  come in  contact  with  this  label?



When we took the decision to record 2 new songs for a 7'' release we contacted some labels to release it including Witches Brew. Cheryl responded positively and an offer was made. Knowing that Witches Brew is a really good label which counts many and good releases we instantly came to an agreement. So, the 7'' was released on the 16th of July and has been going pretty well.




4.How  long  did  it  take  the  band  to  write  the  songs  for  this release?  Does  the   whole  band  work  on  new   music  or  does  one  member usually  write  everything?



Well our drummer Michalis Moatsos lives now in London Uk so for this release we worked in a totally different way than usual recording parts of the songs on our computers till we finished the composition etc. Till this release almost everything was written by guitarist Tasos Papadopoulos but this changed with the coming of Giorgos Skourtaniotis who also helps when it comes to composing new material. In general though, every band member brings ideas at the studio. The two songs of the 7'' were written in a different period of time during rehearsals. I think it took like 3-4 rehearsals for each song to be finished.





5.Who   usually   writes  the  lyrics  for  the  band? What  are  some topics/subjects  you  all write   about?


On our debut LP Thrash Rider all the lyrics were written by Michalis Moatsos who together with Michalis Skliros writes all the lyrics. The main theme of our lyrics are the social and political issues that we face every day as individuals as well as harsh criticism towards the corrupted political world. Other lyrical subjects we write about are various aspects of death like the afterlife for example, serial killers and various forms of madness. Last but not least we write lyrics about our devotion for metal music in general...





6.How   has  the  response   been  from  the  fans? What  about   the  press?


The response from the fans has been amazing! We would like to thank every thrashing maniac out there who has supported us by buying our releases or by raging at one of our shows. Same thing can be said for the press especially after the Resistant Bangers 7'' release . We have done a couple of interviews and you can find lots of reviews for the 7'' online. We are also going to be included in the next issue of a really killer magazine (can't say more for now...)





7.Does   Endless  Recovery   play  "live"  very  often  or  do  you  all  prefer to  work  in  the  studio? Are  their  any  tours  or  shows  planned  for "Resistant  Bangers"?
We really like working and recording new tunes in the studio but we LOVE playing live and we try to play as much as we can. We did a release show for the 7'' on the 14th of September in Athens together with our maniac friends from Slaughtered Priest. We have another show planned again in Athens on the 3rd of January supporting the mighty Greek Death Metal legends Death Courier. We are also planning some future shows outside of Athens/Greece but nothing is confirmed yet. About the touring, for sure we would love to tour but being a Greek underground Thrash band is a huge obstacle to achieve that....



8.Who  are  some  bands  you  all  have  shared  the  stage  with?  If  you  could  set  up  a  dream  tour who  are  some  bands {past  or  present}  you  would   love  to  share  the  stage  with?



We have shared the stage with many of the best underground Greek bands as well as Deceptorn(UK ) and Enfocer (Swe). If we could set up a dream tour with past bands it would certainly be with the unholy German Thrash trinity (Sodom, Kreator, Destruction), Bonded By Blood era Exodus, early Slayer, Razor and of course Iron Maiden and Judas Priest but that's a tough question isn't it? Some of our favourite present bands that we would love to share the stage with are Antichrist, Deathhammer, Nekromantheon, Ranger, Amulet, Black Trip, Morbus Chron and our insane Portuguese brothers in arms Midnight Priest and Inquisitor and Slovenian maniacs Vigilance.


9.I  believe  I  read  on  your  site  that  you  all are  currently  writing the   second  full  length  cd. How  many  songs  are  you  all  planning  on having on the  new  cd?  Will  Witches Brew  release  it  or  have you  all discussed  it  yet?



Yeah that's true we have begun composing the material for our second full length album but distance between the band members makes that difficult to go fast even though the first samples sound really good! This time we are planning to compose a big number of songs and then choose which songs we will include in the album so we can't answer this question yet. The album will be released again from Witches Brew as they showed interest in releasing that too and we are really glad for their help, hard work and dedication to what they do!



10.In  your  opinion   what  is  the  best  and  worst   thing  about   the underground  scene today?  And  what  does  the   term  Underground  metal  mean to  you ?



Well this is a really general question as the underground scene in Greece is a lot different than the underground scene in almost any other place of the world haha. But we are going to answer in a national level. Firstly, there are many good things in the underground scene today so we can't decide what's best. It's awesome that there are still so many people out there keeping the flame alive and being so devoted to the music they love. In addition to that there are so many killer bands that come out constantly which is really positive. On the other hand, something that we as a band and of course as fans don't like with the underground scene of today is that many fake people and trends have become part of it. There are many wannabe ''retro'' fake posers out there, many promoters who are in only for the money etc. It is pathetic to judge a band by how many spikes and chains they wear and how many beers they can drink.... The term Underground metal is really hard to explain with just a few words. For us it's kind of a way of life and determines almost everything we do as a band and us individuals. Reading  the lyrics of the song Predefined Life from the 7'' you can tell a lot about our views on this term....



11. Endless  Recovery   comes  out  of   Greece's   metal   scene  What  is your   opinion   of  the  Greek  metal  scene?


Greek metal scene has many pros and cons. For example a negative aspect of the Greek scene is that many people actually don't care about listening to new stuff and just ''chew'' on what the promoters, press etc. feed them. They prefer seeing live the same bands again and again and mostly care about ''reunions'' of ''dinosaur'' bands that have nothing to offer and nothing to do with the genre. Other than that and the stupid Greek mentality that unfortunately many people in the metal scene have there are many good bands as well and of course many great shows and fans and promoters/labels.



12.Who   are  your  all-time   favorite   Greek  metal  bands? Are  their  any new   bands  you  feel  the  readers   should  check  out?



Beside some exceptions like Flames, old Rotting Christ (especially the Thy Mighty Contract album) etc. most of our all- time favorite Greek Metal bands are new ones. Here are some bands the readers should definitely check out (pay attention some highly recommended stuff here!!!): Overcast, Mentally Defiled, Released Anger, Sacral Rage, Convixion, Wrathblade, Strikelight, Demolition Train, Noise Disorder, Speedrush, Raw Poison, Chainsaw, Steamroller Assault, Revenge, Slaughtered Priest, Necrochakal, Death Trap, No Flame Candle, Dead Congregation, Embrace of Thorns, Necrovorous, Nightbreed, Dark Nightmare, Ravencult, Menace, Carnal Dread to name some.



13.Are   any  of the  members   of   Endless  Recovery   currently  playing  in  side  bands?   If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  a  little  about  them?


Our singer Michalis sings in a Death/Black-Thrash band called Death Trap (for fans of the extreme metal of the 80's- early 90's) and they have released a 7'' and have an upcoming split released with American thrash maniacs Evil Army. Giorgos also plays in a N.W.O.B.H.M styled heavy metal band Fyrecross and they are currently finishing the recordings of their first demo. Michalis Moatsos and Panayiotis Alikaniotis are planning some new musical projects in the not so distant future as well...



14.Thank  you   for  taking  the  time  to  fill   out   this  interview  do  you  all  have  any final  comments   for  the  readers before  we end the  interview?



First of all we would to thank the maniacs behind this zine for this great interview (Primitive Ways is a really cool name by the way).....Other than that, we would like to let everyone know that we are growing stronger and to stay tuned to our updates as soon we'll have more details concerning our second album. Till then listen to Endless Pain at lethal volume...Soon we'll spread some thrashing mayhem near you..CRUSH THOSE WHO DENY THE PRIMITIVE ROOTS!

Interview with Cemetary Filth done by Patrick on 11-13-14

Metal  Hails 
Here  is  a  new  interview  done  with  the   U.S  death/thrash  metal  band   Cemetary Filth  who  recently  released  their  debut  E.P  through  Unspeakable Axe Rec.   and I  believe  is   limited  so  act  fast  if  you  want to get  a  copy  of  some  excellent  death/thrashing  mayhem.
Enjoy  the  interview  and  expect  more  soon
Patrick
fiendformetal@live.com






Interview   with   Cemetery Filth    done  by   Patrick  





1.Metal  Hails  thank  you  guys  for   taking  the  time  to  fill  out  this  interview . When  did  the  members  of the  band  first  meet? Was  it  long  before  you  started   Cemetery  Filth   ?
 How  did  you  all  decide  on  the  name  for  the  band?

Neal: Jonah (drums) and I had met in early 2013 when he started drumming for another band I was in. That band went its separate ways after several months, which led him to join my band Manic Scum. Shortly after that, we recorded an EP. The guy who recorded it (David Prae) put Matt and I in touch since Matt's a graphic designer and could help with the EP layout. Turns out he didn't live too far away, so it wasn't long before we started talking about jamming. Ryan and I knew of each other through the local scene and had talked for a few years before Cemetery Filth was formed.

Matt: As Neal said, we met through David Prae and started talking about layouts and our mutual love for old school death metal in general. Neal mentioned wanting to start a new band, and when we met in person at the night of a Manic Scum / Exhumed show at The Hideaway in Johnson City, I think we both felt a strong connection and moved forward from there. He had come up with the band's name and we ran with it. I had been burnt out on playing guitar for the previous year or so, but as soon as he sent me a tab of a song he had written, which later became "Gateway Among the Graves", I quickly rediscovered my passion in guitar playing. I remember thinking "this guy can really write riffs!" and before I knew it I was back to writing my own riffs and my chops were getting better than ever. We met at Jonah's folks place on a cloudy day in early January, and we wrote half of "Screams From the Catacombs" that first day. The connection was instant. 




2.What  is  the   current   line-up  of   Cemetery  Filth ? For  the   readers  who  have  never  heard  the  band's  music  how  would  you  describe  it?

N: The current lineup of Cemetery Filth is Matt Kilpatrick on vocals/guitar, Ryan Guinn on guitar, Jonah Turner on drums, and myself on bass. Matt will be moving soon, though, and a new lineup will be announced afterward. As far as describing our music - if anyone feels like they might be interested in hearing us, I'd suggest they listen and make that judgement for themselves.
 
M: The current line-up is the original one. Ryan left us for a few months in the spring, and while we forged on, the band was definitely lacking in something (namely awesome lava leads and pervy hilarity). He came back and it was like he never left. We started the band to pay tribute to our love for simple and FILTHy old school death metal, so I guess that's how we would describe it. People seem to relate us to a lot of the Scandinavian Death Gods, and even more so to the Florida Ancients... all of which is flattering. We get influence from every where.


3.Cemetery  Filth   is  getting   ready  to  release  their  demo  "Screams  From The  Catacombs" Through  the  great  label  "Unspeakable Axe Rec."   how  did  the  band  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label?

N: Unspeakable Axe Records released the tape version of the EP in late September. I had helped to put together the Mountains of Madness Fest in July, which featured a band on UAR called Shards of Humanity. That and the fest lineup in general got Eric from UAR to attend. He saw us play at the fest, liked what he heard, and Matt began corresponding with him afterward.

M: It's actually an EP, not a demo, and we released 45 limited and hand-numbered CDs through the label that I co-run with David Prae, called White Ship Records. Eric Musall, founder and owner of Unspeakable Axe Records, is a mutual collector and metal-head to the core, so the connection between us was instant. The guy is truly dedicated to the metallic cause and does what he does out of love for metal and the underground scene. One of the nicest dudes around, and we're stoked that he's into what we do, and has helped us spread the Filth.
 

4.Does  the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or does  one or  two  members  usually  write  everything? Who   writes  the  lyrics  for  the   band where  does  the   band  draw  inspiration for the  lyrics?
N: Matt and I have contributed the majority of riffs thus far, especially since Ryan was away from the band for a short period of time. The whole band contributes ideas, though. Matt handles the lyrics.

M: I always wanted to write lyrics and tried every now and then, but when I sat down to write for the first song, "Screams From the Catacombs", the words just wrote themselves. The riffs we write always set the tone, I usually pitch the first idea that comes to mind during or after we start jamming new riffs at practice, and if the guys approve, the story that becomes the lyrics usually writes itself.  We all love Morbid Angel and other bands that broke away from the atypical gore/zombie and/or satanic lyrics in death metal (not that there's any thing wrong with that), especially those of which that took influence from more scifi-based writers like H.P. Lovecraft. As fans of horror like that ourselves, it seemed natural to pull from those influences and pay homage to that type of written terror.





5.How  has  the   response   been  from  the  fans? What  about   the   press?
N: So far the response has been very positive overall. I think we expected a positive reaction, but it's exceeded expectations.

M: People seem to be really into us at live shows and we've gathered lots of fans through social networking. Being released through Unspeakable Axe has only boosted our reception and it's awesome to know that people all around the country, Europe, and on the other side of the world dig what we're doing. 



6.Does   Cemetery  Filth   play  "live"  very  often  or do you  all prefer to  work  in the  studio? Where  are  some  places  the  band  has  played?

N: We played our first show in July and have played several shows since then. We've played Whitesburg, KY, Atlanta, GA, Asheville, NC, and Johnson City, TN thus far. We plan to expand on that in 2015.

M: We've played in four different states so far, which we're pretty proud of, considering we've only been playing live for a handful of months. We had our tape release show at Criminal Records in Atlanta and afterward were invited to open for Raven later that night - both of which were two of the best and funnest shows we've played. Our show at Static Age Records in Asheville was also super fun and the vid footage on the net rules... Can't forget The Hideaway in Johnson City, which always gives us good, hometown love.


7.Are  their  any   Cemetery  Filth    shows  or  small tours  coming  up  that  the  fans  should  watch  out  for?

N: We have a show planned in Atlanta on December 19th with Ectovoid, Cesspool, and Malformity which will likely be Matt's last show with us. Beyond that, we have some small things we're planning on that we'll announce details of soon.

M: That December show is going to rule. The Atlanta scene seems to be ready for us now that they've gotten a taste of the Filth back in October. And with the bands we're playing with, it's surely going to be a night to remember.  
 



8.In  your   opinions  what  is  the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  underground?And  what  does  the  Underground  Metal   mean  to  you?

N: The best thing about the underground scene is discovering good new bands that stand out. The worst thing about the current underground would be trends and lack of diversity in the music. You don't have to be original to have a distinct sound, and I think a lot of today's underground bands are content to just take influence from one or two of their favorite bands as opposed to a plethora of influences.

M: I'd say the best thing about the underground is the community. You can reach out, find other people into the music, form bands, discover other bands, and meet those people you weren't sure existed... the weird freaks that love the same disgusting, cheesy, and taboo music that you do. The worst thing is that you have to self-promote yourself and that a lot of venues and bigger labels don't want any thing to do with you. Thankfully there are people like Eric at Unspeakable Axe who work within the underground... and that the fans in the underground are willing to support us.



9.Has  Cemetery  Filth    begun  work  on  the  next  demo  or  full-length  yet? Will  it  be   released  on   Unspeakable  Axe  Rec.  or  have  you  and  the  label  talked  it  over  yet?

N: We are in the process of recording three new songs for an upcoming split with Trench Rot, Sabbatory, and Ectovoid. It will be released on CD in early 2015 through Unspeakable Axe Records. Beyond that, we hope to continue our relationship with Unspeakable Axe, but we'll see.

M: That split release is a concept Eric of Unspeakable Axe Records and I came up with together. It's called "Four Doors To Death" and is supposed to be a call back to the old compilation and split releases from the early 90's. These new songs are sick and I can't wait to hear the other band's contributions.



10.Are  any  of  the   members  of   Cemetery  Filth   currently   working  in  side  bands? If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  about  them?

N: Jonah and I currently play in another death metal band called Manic Scum. Jonah also currently plays in the bands Death Trip and Cerebral Death. Ryan and Matt don't have any side bands at the moment, but I know Matt plans to get something started when he moves back to Atlanta.

M: Jonah and Neal are amazing in Manic Scum. If you haven't heard them yet, do yourself a favor and check them out. I'm a huge fan of Scum and it's amazing to me how different Neal's writing style is for that band. 
 

11.Thank  you  all  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  out this  interview  do  you    have  any  final  words  for  the   readers?

N: Thanks to everyone that's supported us so far and helped spread the word. We can't wait for all of you to hear the new material on the "Four Doors To Death" split, and it won't be long until you do.

M: As Neal said, thanks to the supporters and our fans! And of course to the death metal bands that influenced us. We wouldn't be here without any of you.

 Interview   with   Black  Plague  Of  War  and  Disease   Vocalist  and  Guitarist   for   NecroHolocaust  done  by    Patrick
 
 
 
 
 
 
1.When  did  you  first  meet  the   other  members   of   NecroHolocaust  ? What  is  the  current  line up  of the  band?

*WE ALL MET AT DIFFERENT TIMES THROUGH DIFFERENT PEOPLE. PROBABLY NOT WORTH THE DETAILS.

NECROHOLOCAUST 2014 IS:

BLACK PLAGUE OF WAR AND DISEASE + VOCALS + GUITARS

GRIMLORD OF ATOMIC NUCLEAR HATE + GUITARS

BLOODLUST ABOMINATOR OF RITUAL WAR INCANTATIONS + DRUMS

GOATPLAGUE MESSIAH + BASS 
 
 
 
 
2.For   the  readers  who  have  never   heard   NecroHolocaust  how  would  you   describe  the   music?

*"GOAT METAL",  BEHERIT, SADOGOAT WORSHIP, BUT WE STILL HAVE OUR OWN SOUND AND DO OUR OWN THING WITHOUT COPYING THEM. WE HAVE A VERY PUNK APPROACH TO THE WAY WE DO THINGS. I THINK THAT HELPS SEPPORATE US FROM THE REST.
 
 
 
 
3.Necroholocaust  is  getting  ready  to   release  their  debut  full-length  LP.  "Holocaustic Goat  Metal" through  Iron  Bonehead  Rec.   how  did  you  come  in   contact  with  this  great  label?

* IT'S BEEN 11 YEARS OF NECROHOLOCAUST, WE COULD HAVE RELEASED AN LP BEFORE THIS BUT THE TIME WASN'T RIGHT, I MET PATRICK (IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS) WHEN I WAS ON TOUR IN EUROPE WITH MORBOSIDAD, HE LIKED WHAT WE WHERE DOING WITH NECROHOLOCAUST AND OFFERED TO RELEASE THE 7" SPLIT WITH MANTICORE, HE IS A COMRADE OF THE BAND For MANY YEARS AND IS ALSO RELEASING THE NECROHOLOCAUST / SADOMATOR SPLIT LIVE TAPE "RITUAL FOR THE DEAD" FROM THE GIG IN BERLIN GERMANY WE PLAYED TOGETHER.
 
 
 
 
4.How  long  did  it  take  you  to  write  the  songs  on   "Holocaustic Goat  Metal" ? Does  the   whole  band   work  on  the  music  or  does  one  member  usually  write   everything?

* SOME SONGS WE HAD AROUND FOR A FEW YEARS THAT WE PLAYED ON TOUR AND WHERE NEVER RECORDED, THE REST WHERE WRITTEN WITHIN A 6 MONTH PERIOD BEFORE WE RECORDED, AT THIS POINT THESE SONGS WRITE THEMSELVES. THE OTHERS CONTRIBUTE RIFF AND LYRIC IDEAS BUT I USUALLY HAVE THE FINAL SAY TO STAY TRUE TO THE HOLOCAUSTIC GOAT METAL IDEAL FROM WHEN I STARTED THE BAND, BUT I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTION AS IT KEEPS IDEAS FRESH. WE DEFINITELY REHEARSE THE SONGS TOGETHER AS A BAND AND MAKE APPROPRIATE CHANGES IF NECESSARY. IT REALLY JUST HAS TO FEEL RIGHT AND FOLLOW THE PATH OF THE GOAT.
 
 
 
 
5.Where  do  you   all  draw  inspiration  for   the   lyrics?

 ALL THE SONGS ARE THE SAME CONCEPT, HATRED OF JESUS CHRIST, DEFILEMENT OF JESUS CHRIST AND THE BLIND FOLLOWERS. AND TOTAL GOAT WORSHIP OF THE ADVASARY OF CHRIST.
 
 
6.Besides  the  new  LP from  Iron Bonehead  rec.  do  you  currently   have  any  other  merchandise   available? If  yes  where  can  the  fans  find  it?

 MOST RECENTLY THE NECROHOLOCAUST / ZYGOATSIS "ANNIHILATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD" SPLIT 7" THAT WILL BE OUT ON "MORBID METAL RECORDS RECORDS, SHIRTS AND HOODIES FROM "MORBID METAL" AND "IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS". THERE ARE ALSO LOTS OF RECORDS AND MERCH AVAILABLE OUT THERE FROM MANY DISTROS AS WELL. 
 
 
 
 
 
7.Does   NecroHolocaust     ever   play  live  shows  or  do  you  prefer   the  studio?Are  their  any  tours  or  shows  planned  for  "Holocaustic Goat  Metal"?

 WE PLAY LIVE ONLY IN THE RIGHT SITUATIONS WITH BANDS THAT ARE ALONG THE SAME LINES AND IDEALS OF NECROHOLOCAUST, WE DON'T JUST PLAY SHOWS TO PLAY SHOWS, THAT DOESN'T INTEREST US AT ALL, AFTER 11 YEARS WE HAVE NEVER PLAYED A REAL GIG IN CANADA, IF THE RIGHT SITUATION CAME UP WE WOULDN'T RULE IT OUT. WE WILL GO BACK TO EUROPE IN SUPPORT OF THIS LP.
 
 
8.Who   are   some  bands  you  all  have  shared  the   stage  with? If  you   could  set  up  a   dream tour/show   who   are  some  bands  you  would  love to  share  the  stage  with?

 WE HAVE SHARED THE STAGE WITH MANY GREAT BANDS SADOMATOR, ARCHGOAT, BLACK WITCHERY, MORBOSIDAD, BLASPHEMOPHAGHER, IMPIETY, SURRENDER OF DIVINITY, OBEISANCE, NOCTURNAL BLOOD, MANTICORE, GODSLAYING HELLBLAST, NECROBLOOD TO NAME A FEW.
* WE HAVE NO SUCH DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS.
 
 
 
9.NecroHolocaust   comes  out  of  the   Canadian   underground   what  is  your  opinion  of  Canada's   metal  underground?

* THERE ARE LOTS OF GREAT CURRENT BANDS FROM CANADA BLASPHEMY + REVENGE + TRAJETO DE CABRA + NUCLEAR HAMMER + RADIOACTIVE VOMIT + DEATHWINDS + ANTEDILUVIAN + GOATHAMMER + DRUIDUS + BIGRIME EXEMIOUS. 
 
 
 10.Who   are  your  all time  favourite  bands  from  Canada?  Are  their   any  new  bands you   feel  the  readers   should  check  out  soon?

* I THINK I JUST ANSWERED THAT QUESTION.
 
 
 
 
 
 11.Black  Plague  Of  War  and  Disease   you  handle  the  vocals  for  the  band  when  did  you  start  singing/screaming?  Do  you  do  anything  special  to  keep  your  vocals/throat   healthy?

* NO.
 
 
12.You   also  handle  the  guitars  for  the  band   when  did  you  first  start  playing  the  guitars? Are  you  self  taught  or  did  you  take  lessons  when  first   starting out?
 

 I LEARNED GUITAR, BASS AND DRUMS MYSELF BY LISTENING TO OLD PUNK RECORDS. AND A BUNCH OF OLD SCHOOL METAL BANDS.
 
 
 
 
13.Who  are  some  of  your   influences/favourite  guitarists? Do  you   currently   play  any  other   instruments?

 
  I DON'T KNOW, INFLUENCES COME IN MANY FORMS.
 
 
14.Do  you  or  any  of the  members  of   Necroholocaust  currently  work  with  side  bands  or  solo  projects?  If  yes   please  tell  the  readers  about  them?

 YES "TRAJETO DE CABRA" AND "KONFORM", THEY ARE SIDE PROJECTS.
