ANCIENT SPIRIT

Hi Chris, könntest du bitte DISINFECT mal unseren Lesern vorstellen (Gründung, Line-Up, Wechsel, Releases, etc...)!
Hi, Sascha! gegründet wurde DISINFECT 1999 - 666-1 haha. Hui jetzt wird es gleich schwieriger. Line-Up Wechsel hatten wir mehr als genug!! Die Meisten waren durch Umzüge in entfernte Städte bedingt. Wenn man über 200 Km zur Probe fahren muß und das 2 Mal unter der Woche wird es doch etwas streßig und teuer. Es gab auch differenzen wie sich die Musik weiter entwickeln sollte. Für mich war es klar das wir nur schnellen, heftigen Death Metal spielen werden sonst kam nichts in Frage. 0/815 Grind wollte ich nicht machen, will damit nicht sagen das es da keine sehr guten Bands gibt!! Es gibt ja auch bei uns Grind Einflüße, so ist es ja auch nicht! Bis jetzt haben wir eine Live-CD damals für promotion Zwecke verwendet und unsere aktuelle CD "Beinspender" und nicht zu vergessen einige Sampler beiträge wie DEATHOPHOBIA, CACAFONIA(Bulgarien), FRENCH UNDERGROUND COMPILATION, METAL MERCHANT und einiges an Samplerbeiträgen in verschieden Mags Europaweit!!

Glückwunsch zu "Beinspender", für euer Debut, klingt das Resultat echt fett, sowohl vom Kompositorischen als auch von der Produktion. Was kannst du uns dazu erzählen? Was habt ihr euch damals als Ziel gesetzt, bevor ihr die CD aufgenommen habt?
Vielen Dank, das es Dir so gut gefällt! Ich wußte ungefähr wie es zu klingen hatte bevor wir noch in´s Studio gingen, da ich ja die meisten der Songs geschrieben habe. Die Neuen wußten auch wie und ihnen schwebte auch ein Sound in dieser Richtung vor! Das Ziel war eine sehr gute und fett produzierte CD aufzunehmen, die in erster Linie uns und dann den Fans gefallen soll! Wir hoffen dies erreicht zu haben.

Welche Bands zählen zu euren Einflüssen? Am deutlichsten sind meiner Meinung nach CANNIBAL CORPSE und MORBID ANGEL heraushörbar, wobei ihr mich auch ein wenig an BROKEN HOPE zu "Repulsive Conception" Zeiten erinnert.
Einflüße auf jeden Fall Ami Death Metal CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL; DEEDS OF FLESH, DYING FETUS, BROKEN HOPE, MORTICIAN, DISGORGE und einige mehr auch etwas Grind und Black Metal. Danke mit dem vergleich mit der BH, da dies auch die coolste von denen ist, meiner Meinung nach.

Was kannst du uns zu euren Texten erzählen? Wie kommts, dass ihr auch 3 deutsche Titel dabei habt? Wovon handelt "Beinspender"? (Evtl von der Organmafia?) Was ist "L II A 5"? Woher stammt der Sample zu Beginn des Songs?
Das Lustige ist, wir wißen nicht woher der erste Sampel herstammt! Die anderen sind aus Stalingrad. Die deutschen Titel haben sich einfach so ergeben und haben sehr gut zur Musik gepaßt. Ich beschreibe jetzt mal jedes Lied etwas:

- Beinspender: Es geht hier um Mienen und einen Soldaten der ein Bein deswegen verliert und zum Schluß auch seinen Kopf.
- One Night Steak: One night stands. Man ist nichts als ein Stück Fleisch in denen Augen des Anderen. Der damit nur seine sexuellen Lüste befriedigt!
- Darmmanifest: Unsere so tolle Ellbogengesellschaft in der nur Geld regiert.
- After Killing: Naja, mal wieder so ein Serienkiller Text. haha
- L 2 A 5: Hier geht´s um den Leopard 2 Panzer und seine Zerstörungskraft.
- Inner Fear: Um Ängste die einen zerfressen können.
- Grave New World: Wie die Menschheit mit der Natur umgeht und sie systematisch zerstört.
- Menschenfeind: Sagt ja wohl alles. haha
- Foxy Disintegration: Der langsame aber sichere menschliche Zerfall und die Hoffnung nach Etwas nach dem Leben.

Welche Ziele habt ihr euch mit DISINFECT gesetzt?
Möglichst gute Musik zu spielen. Sehr viel an Konzerten mitzunehmen neue Erfahrungen zu sammeln und sehr viel Spaß und Alkohol haha Etwas Neues können wir nicht mehr erfinden aber das was da ist zu verfeinern und vielleicht auch etwas anders oder besser zu machen!

Wie wichtig ist für euch Death Metal?
SEHR WICHTIG!!!!!!!!!! Wir alle lieben diese Musik! Ich wüßte nicht was ich machen sollte, wenn ich nicht mehr diesen Krach anhören oder selber spielen könnte!! Privat höre ich zu 90% nur Death Metal mit etwas Grind und Black Metal.

Was hältst du von der deutschen / von eurer lokalen Metal Szene? Wie stark unterstützt ihr den Underground? Findest du auch, dass die Szene im Vergleich zu früher nachgelassen hat?
Naja, sehr viele falsche Menschen. Leider merkt man das immer mehr umso älter man wird. Metal ist nicht mehr das was man sich als junger Mensch vorgestellt hat. Einigkeit, Freunde überall wo man hin kommt und Ehrlichkeit!! Jeder will sein Ding durch ziehen (nichts falsches daran) aber anderen Bands zu helfen naja das gibt´s wirklich nicht oder kaum. Die Szene wird größer aber nicht mehr so cool wie früher. Die Leute sind viel mehr zersplittert. Wir versuchen in dem zu helfen das, wenn wir ein Konzert, Festival spielen möglichst Bands von hier holen. Sobald ich irgendwelche News habe schicke ich sie an alle Bands weiter die ich so kenne. Pflege Kontakte, beantworte Mails gleich...

Wie kam es eigentlich damals zum Split mit OBSCURE?
Musikalische differenzen und dann kamen auch etwas zu viel Drogen in´s Spiel! Die anderen wollten softer werden auf ihre Art und ich wollte was schnelleres, heftigeres spielen. Es war auch nicht mehr so die Motivation da. Konzerte wurden sehr selten gespielt und alles hat sich super lange hingezogen.

Wie kreiert ihr einen Song bei DISINFECT?
Unterschiedlich. Ich sitze zu Hause schreib ein Lied komme in die Probe und wir feilen daran rum, wenn es nicht 100% so paßt wie es sollte oder der andere Gitarrist hat noch einen coolen Riff den wir einsetzen. Genau so anders herum, wenn der andere Gitarrist was geshrieben hat. Zum Schluß kommt der Gesang.

Wie weit würdet ihr gehen , um eure Musik zu verbreiten? Was wäre wirklich das äußerste was ihr machen würdet?
Uns prostituieren? Meinst Du so etwas? Ja aber dann nur mit Frauen haha ????? Hui was für eine Frage!! Ich laße meinen Job ziemlich hinter mir, wegen der Band. Bin selbständiger Fotograf aber mache den größten teil für die Band. Ich investiere möglichst jede freie Minute, Sekunde uns weiter zu bringen. Das ist was ich mache, da das Meiste was die Band betrifft auf meinen Schultern lastet.

Mit wem würdet ihr wirklich gerne mal touren / auftreten?
CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DYING FETUS, MORTICIAN oder MARDUK, IMMORTAL das wären schon mal paar .

Was haltet ihr von Coversongs? Spielt ihr selbst welche? Was ist deiner Meinung nach der beste Coversong, der bisher gespielt wurde?
Wenn sie gut gemacht sind ist es ok. Die Dinger sollen ja nicht 100% so klingen wie das Original. Die meisten Bands covern CORPSE und das auch meistens mies. Ich würde da lieber irgend etwas covern das bekannt ist aber nicht mit Metal in dem Sinn zu tun hat!! Wir spielen keine Cover und wenn dann nur etwas cooles das nicht gerade jeder spielt. Das beste Cover ist Zero the Hero von CORPSE wirklich cool gemacht!

Du warst ja auch auf dem Summer Breeze? Wie fandest du es dort, was hat dir am besten was am schlechtesten gefallen?
Tja, sagen wir mal körperlich aber geistig nicht so sehr haha. Zu viel Alkohol hat meinem Gedächtnis geschadet. Muß sagen dieses Jahr war es eh nicht so toll! Das Beschissenste waren eh die Busse, ziemlich nervig. Die Bands waren auch nicht so der Renner.

Was kann man in Zukunft von DISINFECT erwarten?
Viele Konzerte, nächstes Jahr eine heftige CD und hoffe auch mal eine Tour, wird ja mal wieder Zeit!

Any last Wordz or Greetingz?
Vielen Dank für das Interview und die Möglichkeit uns noch mehr Leuten vorzustellen!! Hoffe auch das ein paar der Leser sich jetzt (mehr) für uns interessieren werden ;-)
 
 

ATIFAH

Fuckin' Exhausted Long Interview in tradition of ATIFAH with Christian Kilian (Guitar) and Claudio (Guitar) of DISINFECT from Germany... Well, That's it !!! Well, First of All, Since Were not so familiar yet with the band specially for our readers whom probably will become yer new fans & freaks, Would yea mind to say somethin' to my muthafukka ATIFAH readers here ....
Chris : Greetings to all Indonesian metalheads especially the death and grinders haha !!!! Maybe we´ll meet some day, to destroy some clubs !!
Claudio : Hi folks.

So, How's your life there !!? Would yea mind to tell us 'bout the Local Scene In yer City/State/Province, etc.- ?!? Are there some News cum out ?!!
Chris : The life is so far O.K. The scene is a little bit dead in our area, that´s in the south of Germany. There are some new faces now in our local scene but only sence the last months. Hope the scene will grow again like the years before !!!! But we a´ve a big underground music scene with a lot of cool bands. The east of Germany has a big underground scene with a lot of fans and bands ! Hope ours will be the same in the next time, especially with the fans! In the north it´s much more worse then here. West-Germany is O.k.
Claudio : But many underground bands turned their style into black metal because it´s trendy. That´s bad.

I think there's no wrong if I asked When the the band set up, please retell for us shortly here with a description yer own musickal terror….!!! Also I was wondering Whom and Why created the BAND in first place ?!!
Chris : It was made as a projekt 1999 because I played in a Death Metal band called OBSCURE before and it was a mid tempo thing but I wanted a extremer and much more brutal band, therefore I made this projekt with a friend. It was the other guitar player Claudio and he wants the same. He knew the vocalist+drummer and I had a good friend who should play the bass. Now it´s my fulltime band !!

Then, How did yea all meet and decide to form the band !?? Did yea all come from other bands before it set up or Is it just a Project ?!! Also, Have yea ever changed the Line Up since beginning !!? If yes, Why did yea always change the line up ?? Are there personal problems to each members therefore yea as Leader replaced the guys yea didn't like in band ??? Please, Explain the reasons so we can know what is inside in the band....
Chris : Like I said before first it was just a projekt but now it´s a real fuckin´band ! Yes ther are some people from other bands in. We had a change on the vocals and drums. The reason was study. They had to change the city and it was to far for them and we decided to take new musicians in the band. The line-up is now made, I hope so haha

Retell us 'bout yer releases so far to Readers here ?!! If possible, Compare of each ones like which ones has most cool one according to yer opinion...?! then How did yea describe 'bout yer own music ?!! How many copies have sold out so far for each of the albums ?!!!
Chris : We´ve only a live promo CD. But it´s fuckin´ brutal Death Metal !!!
Claudio : Sorry, but Chris made a mistake. We´ve a live promo CD on which you hear goddamn fuckin´ mega brutal Death Metal. Notice that !!! (Of corpse man, I'll notice that and I believe yea played brutal as fuck outhere ha...ha... It's great to hear that !!!-Ed)

Anyway, Do you really want to become a Real Musician of the (Underground) Bands as a Life or have a Band just for Fun or maybe just to express the Skills/Ideas yea have ?!! Is that possible to make a Living out of Music in yer country specially for METAL music ?!!
Chris : Yeah, if the possibility would be, I would take the chance to get a real muscian but that´s only a dream haha You can´t live as a musician here especially as a Death Metal one !!! (Yeah, Just wondering !!!-Ed)

What 'bout the Name of the Bands means to yea, and Does it fit/appropriate to the music yea bring [in yer opinion] ?!! Or Does the name has an influence for/in yer life or kinda like that ?!!!
Chris : I had some days free and in this time I collected some cool names. I think there were 15 names in the selection. The coolest one and everyon was contendet was DISINFECT. The name has a good pronunciation and when you here it and see the logo you´ve to think this must be a extreme metal band.

I wonder if yer an Underground Band, Did yea have difficulties when yea set it up like a Finance, Equipment or somethin' else in the beginning ?!! Or maybe Yea have a Studio Recording for release the stuffs there ?!!!! also Have yea ever had an endorsement for yer Equipment by the Music Company there ?!!
Chris : In the beginning you´ve cheap equipment and every year you get better the equipment changes and grows. This is the thing you´ve to invest if you want a good and professional sound. I think I´ve found everything I need, I hope so haha If you want to get something from a company you need a contract and you should sell a lot, that the company can earn a lot of money with your music haha (Of course man, I see that point is fuckin' right !!!-Ed)

Tell us If Yea got the Deal/Signing with Labels there ?!! If Yes, then How and When Did yea make it ??! How's the Deal going so far !!! If yea become their artist/band now, Did yer Label have arranged and managed for yer Promotion Stuffs with the Budgets/Financial Support such as for Touring, or Gig Shows 'coz yer album released by them ?!! Or Yea did by self-financed Touring or Shows there ?!!
Chris : No, we don´t have a deal till now. There are two labels interested in our band but we need first a CD. The tours are made by labels or promoters and we don´t have to pay, we get some money ! If we play only small gigs we´ve to look on our own to arrange everything but it´s O.K.

Did yea make a cooperation in distributing of Yer previous early stuffs by yerself Example for Demo/Tapes, 7" EP/LP,] to the Labels outside and inside of yer country ?!!
Chris : Like I said we´ve only a promo till now. We´ll go soon to a studio. I think in spring.

Have yea ever feel that some day/one day If Yea were get a deal/signing with LABELS, There's a possibility for Labels to Rip yea Off ?! What do yea think and say 'bout that if truly happened !!!!??? What are yea gonna do .... How do yea control yer selling points of albums ???
Chris : Yes, there is allways a possibility to get ripped off by labels. Before we sign a deal we would bring it to a lawyer. But if it happend, we´ll buy some guns and kill the assholes haha (Yeah, Cool to hear that y'know !!!-Ed) The control of the selling is only possibel if you´re allways in contact with your label and ask about, or the other thing is if you don´t sell you´ll see it because the label will kick you out haha

Tell us 'bout yer Life [In normal days !!!], What did yea do beside playing in this Band ?! Or somethin' like Sports, Drink Beers/Vodka, Hang out with outher musicians/bands…. etc.- Also, Do yea have a Project stuff to do like playin' in other Bands or probably 'Mags/'Zine's Editors there or Tell us if Yea have part time JOBS too to cover a Musick Life ?!!!
Chris : My profession is to be a fotograf and designer. Second, like you said drink a lot of beer smoke some pot, go out on gigs, partys or just fuck a nice girl. I made fotos for bands or for mags and I made some inlays, cover for bands.
Claudio : Ha,ha. Chris, do you mean the fat girl that you fucked last year? Anyway, I play in a other band which called SACRIFICIUM (join our homepage: sacrificium.com). (I'll check it out man !!!-Ed) My profession is to change other peoples cars into lifters, what means that I repair lifters, but that´s just for a certain time, cause I want to go back to school.

Well, Do you still like the 80's Metal bands !!? What are your comments 'bout their growing to the 90's and have influenced 90's bands ??! Do yea still like them sometimes ?!!
Chris : The old bands like CELTIC FROST are cool, but I don´t listen to this old music. There are so much cool new bands. The change of this old 80´s bands in the 90´s was in the most cases a desaster, like with CELTIC FROST.

What are yer fave Bands, 'Zines and Labels today ?!! [If possible, Included Local & Foreign !!!] But Specially for yer fave Bands, Have they influenced yer music and style's characters ?!! If yes, How did they influence the band ?!!
Chris : Fave bands are: CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEEDS OF FLESH, DEICIDE, MORTICIAN, DYING FETUS, MORBID ANGEL, NILE, SINISTER, SIX FEET UNDER, BROKEN HOPE, MONSTROSITY, HATE ETERNAL, EXHUMED and a ton more bands haha in Black Metal are there EMPEROR, MARDUK, DARK THRONE. The German bands I like are FLESHCRAWL, ANASARCA, OBSCENITY, ORTH. Some cool mags are Legacy, Eternity. The labels are Morbid Rec., Repulse, Relapse, Nuclear Blast (in the beginning) I think the american bands are an influence in our music but that´s normal if you listen a lot to this kind of music you´ll play this style. I hope we play our own music-style but if you hear it you can say it´s brutal Death Metal in the vein of american bands. (Of corpse !!!-Ed)
Claudio : I like the Eternity mag. too. But I read not very often mags, cause often the guys who write the interviews, reviews or what the hell knows, are comerciel ashholes, if you know what I mean. I like bands of kind of music, some are Loreena Mc Kennett, Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath. But my absolutly fave bands are bands like : Brutal Truth & Suffocation. (Yeah, My fave !!!-Ed)

If You saw other Bands' playing on Gigs, Whom has the most impressive/amazing gig/show in yer country/State [in yer opinion !!!] for Local Bands and Foreign Bands ?!? How's 'bout the Tickets' Fee for watching Foreign Bands specially for Fans/freaks, Is it so Expensive according to yea ??!
Chris : The best gig was with the gods of CANNIBAL CORPSE !! ´Bout the local bands, that´s not so easy because the acting is not to great on stage of the most bands. I don´t know what to say, Sorry ?!?! I think the prices for the tickets are O.k. because when you play in a band like I do you see what´s behind and that the bands need the money ! I only talk about prices for Death Metal bands not METALLICA or bullshit like this haha

What's yer opinion if There's a Band bring cover songs from other bands on stage !!? Do yea like it ?! Or Did yea ever try to bring a cover song when yea were on Stage/Gigs ??? IF Yes/No, Why ?!!!
Chris : A good cover song is very hard to make! Especially for the younger bands when they are not so good on their instruments and try to cover good bands that´s a chaos in the most cases. But if they are good made, it´s cool. Maybe we´ll make a cover song but only for live playing. That´s good if the audiance don´t know your band and you play a good cover song, this can catch the audiance and bring it on your side.

Sorry for this personality question and try to make it cool anyway and sometimes we need a negative thinking, right !!! So, Do yea like Porno Stuffs XXX or Shit like that 'coz I just motherfucker collect them ha..he..ha… ang got from yer country too ha !!! If yes, Who's yer fave Porn Stars ?!!! If There were an opportunity to be a XXX Porn stars, Did yea want to take it ??! If NOT, Why ?!!! If Yes, Whom the Artists yea want to dig out deeply ha...ha… ??? Also Describe 'bout yer fave Girls/Babes to taste !!!
Chris : I don´t look pornos. I´m not in this stuff. I like to fuck but not to look hahaha I don´t would take the oppurtunity to be a porn star, I don´t want that other people can look how I fuck, especially when you´re on the set. There are some nice chicks in this field but I don´t knew the names of them. My fave girl in the moment is Letitia Casta and most of the Swedish girls hahaha

If There were statement like this but correct me if I may wrong again... " Norway/Finland/Sweden or Other Scandinavian/Baltic Country is the Country for Black Metal Bands/Musicans and America is for Death metal Bands/Musicians ", Do you agree with it ?!! Please, Explain yer reasons ?!!
Chris : Yes, that´s true. I think that´s the clima in the northern countries. The most of the year it´s cold, dark and they´ve their own myths and culture and this is the reason, not like in America. They´ve a lot of cool northern myths and maybe this is the only way they could bring it to music. The other thing is they drink to much. haha

Okay, Back to your self, When did you yerself first get into the Underground Scene !?? How's 'bout other members !!? Would yea mind to compare it beetween the past and the present Underground Scene in yer opinion ?! Any changes yea probably can see now ?!!!
Chris : That´s about 13 years. In the past it was much more funny we drunk a lot, had more fun now it´s colder. There are some cool guys & girls but not like in the past. The scene changed from Death Metal more to Black Metal, hope the´ll listen more to Death Metal again !!!!

Have you ever RIPPED OFF by the Labels or Bands there personally ??!
Chris : No, never.

In yer normal days or reality... Sometimes, Do you interested in POLITIC Topics discussion or GOVERNMENTS' rules discussion ?? If not, why ?!!! And also Do you support ARMY/MILITARY SERVICE or COPS like that ?!! What do yea think of them ?!!
Chris : I´m not to much interested in politics. They`re all false pigs!! I don´t have the time for this I prefer to play music. I don´t support any things like army... I think cops are importent, without them this world would end in chaos and I had never problems with them.

I'd like to say really sorry for this question again, How old are yea and the rest of Band's members ?!!! Have the members got merried yet ??! So, Did yer family support yea in Band financially, morally or whatever ?!!
Chris : I´m 26, our vocalist, bass player, guitarist are 23 and the drummer is 24. No one of us is married. Only some girl friends haha Yes, if we need help like cars or money we get it ! That´s cool but they don´t like the music to much especially the vocals. haha

Back to band… If yea have, Whom have created yer Web site/Homepage of the band ?!!! Did yea satisfy with The Work so far in Net ??!!! Did yea pay for it ?!! How Important is A Website for band itself ?!!!
Chris : I made the home page. I´m very satisfied with it and we don´t have to pay here. But we´ll change the provider because of the name it´s to long www.mediasolution.de/privat/disinfect . The new one will be www.disinfect.de A website is really importend in this days, everything is growing, getting new influences and changing and if you don´t go with the time you can´t get well-known.

Ok,... Whom always De-composed yer muSICK and Lyrics in every songs significantly ?!! How yea made musick which i mean the process and What have influenced the Lyrics too... Also Tell us 'bout the ARTworks for all yer releases if possible like Whom the ARTist is for the Covers and the Fee for him ?!! Do yea satisfy for the results, Dun yea ?!!
Chris : The music is made by my side and our bass-player made a lot of songs. I hope the others will make more! The lyrics are written by our vocalist. The lyrics try to portray sociocritical thoughts as well as personal views in an extreme and provocative way. Our logo is made by Christoph Szpajdel and it was for free. He´s a cool guy! He made logos for bands like EMPEROR, OLD MAN`S CHILD, MOONSPELL.

When yea and the band wrote a Lyric and Songs also Musick, What would yea like to get from the Listeners and Fans !!? What do yea want from them for example A Suicide, Murder, Make it Fun, Emotions, and just Enjoy the Lyrics, etc.- ??? How important is for the lyrics... Somehow, Do yea care 'bout yer country culture and Does it influence to yer life there ?!!!
Chris : I want that they like our music and they should have a lot of fun on the concerts and get crazy ! Yes, I care ´bout my country I live here. I think you´re allways influenced of the place, culture you live.

Yeah, Could yea tell us 'bout one of Yer best GIGS/SHOWS/TOURS there, How's the Audience ?! Was it Great ??? With whom for the Last Show….. What's yer comment on Bands itself there on yer SHOW !? Are they Support yers ?!! How's 'bout the FEE for yea, Did they pay yea well or have yea ever got a Bad payment for the GIGS/SHOWS/TOURS ?!!!
Chris : The audience was in the most cases great! We had a lot of fun and drunken moments haha The bands we played were in the most cases cool people. The money we get was O.K. only one time we didn´t get something but it was in my hometown, instead we got a lot of drinks and food.

Did yea also make a Tour to other Countries [Outside of yer country, of course !!!] so far ?!!! With whom yea want to share yer stage when yea on GIGS/SHOWS/TOURS ?! Also Which Bands, Would yea like to Open some times ???
Chris : Till now we didn´t play with DISINFECT in other countries. but we´ll play soon in Switzerland, Belgium, Czech Rep., The Netherlands and hope a lot of other countries. The biggest thing would be to open for CANNIBAL CORPSE !!

So, How's bout Tour in ASIA countries, Have yea ever considered 'bout that ?!!! How's the Requirements to invite yea to play on GIGS/SHOWS specially outside yer country or Let's say My country INDONESIA ??!!!
Chris : No, we didn´t consider to play so far till now. But if the possibility would be we would play for sure!!

Well, What your opinion 'bout these ideologies : Atheism and Satanism !?? So, What's yer philosophy in Life ?!!! Is it important to have kinda Thoughts, Philoshopy and Attitude towards Religions in a Bands ?!! What do yea think of Religions then ??!
Chris : I read a lot about Satanism, Okkultism, Celtics, northern mythology. I hope there is a life after this shit here haha It´s not importend to have thoughts like this in a band but for everyone for it self. I´m born as a christian and I think the most things are O.K, what this religion want to say. I think religions are importend, you need something to believe in. The only think is when you begin to be a fanatic, stupid idiot but if you don´t hurt other it´s O.K.

Anyway, Have yea ever thought in mind to end this Band !? If NOT, So What's yer motivation behind it ?!!! 'Till How's Age, Yea want to quick from band and Metal Scene ha..ha..ha… ?!!!
Chris : Hahaha this is a stupid question haha, Sorry !!! I'm one of the guys who made this band. I want to be in this scene till I´m dead haha Hope so !

Back to yer self again... When did yea first learn yer own instruments yea played !!? Did yea have educational background for the instruments yea play before and How's bout others in band ??? Whom have influenced the character of yer own instrument in Band ???!!!!
Chris : I was 5 when I get my first guitar but this was chaos ! haha Because I smashed the guitar after some hours again the wall the second, too. haha Then some years after when I was 13 I got my second chance and I took it. I had education till I was 16. Then I had some breaks in my musical carrier and till I was 21 I begun to play much more and in some bands. My first teacher has a big influence in the beginning now I don´t know but i think a lot of guitar players. haha

So, If Yea played some instruments in the band, What is yer fave trade mark/label/brand for the instruments yea used for Rehearsal, on Tour/Shows or also in Stuido Recording for example BC. RICH/IBANEZ/JACKSON GUITARS, TAMA/SONOR, MARSHAL/CRATE SOUNDS SYSTEM, BOSS/D.O.D. PEDAL EFFECTS, …etc.- I believe Yea know what I mean !!! Then How did yea find yer own original sounds with that Instruments ?!!!
Chris : I play a B.C Rich Warlock and a ESP LTD M-200. My first E-guitar was a Ibanez Van Halen I´ve this guitar always here. I´ve a Mesa box and a rack with a Marshall 9100, Rocktron Piranha, Digitech TSR-12. To find a own sound, that´s very hard and it took along time ! Especially íf you´ve a lot of different sounds you can choose.

Sorry, What's yer fave Authors and Books yea read daily ?!!! Do yea like HORROR movies and Stuffs like that in yer leisure/free time ??? And also How's yer relationship/friendship between yea/the band and other bands/musicians there ?!!
Chris : My fave author is H.P.Lovecraft !!! He´s great ! Then I read Poe, Clive Barker (especially the first books !! The books of blood), King. A great book is American Psycho from Bret Easton Ellis. I read about Satanism, Okkultism, Celtics, northern mythology, serial-killers. Yeah I love horror movies !!!! I´ve a lot of splatter/gore movies here ! The friendship between the band members is great ! We know a lot of other bands from our area and in the most cases we are good firends.

In yer opinion, Which Countries/States/Province in yer country which has always given a Birth to [the Most] impressive Death/Black/Grind Metal bands appeared in the Scene ?!!? And also I wonder Which States has a Bad/Worst Scene there ?!!!
Chris : Here in South we´ve a lot of great bands. ATROCITY in the beginning before 10 years haha, APOPHIS, FLESHCRAWL, MUCUPURULENT, ACCION MUTANTE are some cool bands from our area here. The D.M. music-scene here is one of the oldest and biggest in Germany.

Bytheway after we discussed from above, Do yea think yer self and band is still in the Underground Scene ?!!! So, What's yer comment… If Bands already have released 7 Albums or more on CDs format didn't want to call themselves as an Underground Bands anymore but in fact they were grown up from the UnderGround Scene ?!! Please, Need yer cumments….
Chris : Yes, we are underground and I think we´ll stay there. If they don´t want to be called underground it´s O.k. but if they think they don´t have to talk to bands, fans from this scene then they should FUCK OFF !!!!!!

In yer opinion, Are there any RACISTS/FASCIST Bands in yer country ??? Please, Feel free to tell us which ones... So, What's yer opinion 'bout RACISTS/FASCIST Bands/People ?!! Do yea support them sometimes ?!!!
Chris : I think in the most countries are this kind of bands. I think they are well known because they play this kind of OI music. (FUCK OI OFF, man !!!-Ed) In the metal scene you can´t know who thinks in which political dirrection because there are in the most bands between 3 and 6 people and everyone is a individual and thinks different to politics or religion.... I don´t know a racist/fascist metal band. Like I said I´m not to much in politics.

If Yea were got tired playin' in Metal band specially in Underground Scene, Do yea want to play in HEAVY METAL/ROCK fuckin' Bands and become a ROCK STAR then like yea know like Guns n' fuckin' Roses, or kinda Male Pop Bands ha...ha... !!! What Do yea say ???
Chris : HAHA never, I´m not in this kind of bullshit and I never listen to this stupid music. I don´t know what to play in a band like this haha.

What do yea think of BOOTLEG STUFFS or D.I.Y. Recs. !!? What yer opinion if some people or Labels outside or inside yer country have bootlegged yer releases without yer permission and License ?!! What do yea do then...
Chris : The problem is they destroy small bands ! This stupid motherfuckers should be sent to hell. (Great to hear that with such cool answers, They shal be dead at least ha...ha...-Ed) If someone would make bootlegs of our CD, I´ll try to make everything what´s in my power to stop this and to get the money back they took !

Apologize, Do yea smoke and use some Drugs sometimes !!? What do yea think 'bout POT !!? Should it be fuckin' Legalized ??? Do yea now how much for its package there when one will buy 'em ?!!!
Chris : HAHA good question ! Yes, LEGALIZE POT !!!! Everyone should try it haha That´s important a lot of beers and pot haha The thing is how much you buy haha
Claudio : The only drugs in my life are beer and my technical to rape my guitas hahahaha. (Hey man, Yea come again, Thank !!!-Ed)

Anyway, Do yea have a Tattoo ?!! If Yes, How much to make a Tattoo and What is yer fave pictures ??? Is that necessary things that Metal Heads/Metal Bands should have a tattoo in their body according to yea ha..ha… ?!!!
Chris : No, but want some. I´m a big demon fan, when i make some tattoos, I´ll put some really evil one on my body. haha I think it´s cool to have some tattoos and it looks great but the costs haha I needed allways some more importend things, like a new guitar or effect.... No, it´s not importend that bands have tattoos but like I said it´s cool. ´This is a thing you´ve to decide on your own because you like this and not because you play in a metal band !
Claudio : I prefer piercings, piercigs from inside ha.

Some might said that a Metal/Band featured in the Web site/Internet is No Longer an Underground Band. What do you think of this !!? Why there are many restrictions for Bands and Individuals in Underground, Is it True ?!!
Chris : Stupid bullshit !!! We´re underground and we´ve a home-page ! I don´t think that they´re so much restrictions any more in this kind of music. We are no more in the medieval times haha I think the most bands see that the internet is a great thing to promote their own music maybe there are some stupid rednecks they don´t want haha

What Do yea think of Underground Publication such as Magazines/Fanzines and Webzines/Netzines for the Bands itself ?!! Are they still needed and necessary for the Bands in the Underground Scene ?!!! And What UNDERGROUND means to yea !!!

Claudio : I think I should now say that the guys out there should visit our gigs, buy our stuff and that Death Metal is the law or so.

Thank yea for yer informative answers and Good Luck for the band !!!

 

BACK TO THE GRAVE

The wait is over. Upon contact with the German Death metal combo DISINFECT, I immediately felt the need to have them featured in the webpages of The Grave. Guitarist Christian has kindly answered our enquiry. In the meantime, there is a new drummer (Hannes) and a new bassist (Klaus).

BTTG – Hallo Christian. How are you?
Christian – Hi Morgana, thanks I’m fine! Hope you too.

BTTG – Would you please introduce DISINFECT to the readers of Back to the Grave?
Christian – The beginning of the band was 1999. We’re a brutal Death Metal band from Germany, influenced in our playing by the American style.

BTTG – The band got almost immediate label response after being founded. From early 1999 to late 2000 you certainly managed to draw attention. What do you hold of the cooperation with your first label (Rest in Hell)? Why signing to Diamond Productions for the follow-up to Beinspender?
Christian – Yes, we changed some labels! First Rest in Peace, after that we released our CD Beinspender under Rest In Hell and now we signed to the French label Diamond Prod. We were very disapointed with the work of RiH: they did nothing except manufacturing the CD and the normal thing to do is to change to a better label if you can.

BTTG – Your lyrics attempt at portraying socio-critical thoughts as well as provocative personal views on various subjects. Do you think there should be an interventive edge to Death Metal? Do you think Death Metal is conceptually homogenous?
Christian – No, there are so many different styles in Death Metal. Old school, technical, fast, slow, melodic, influenced by Thrash, Grind or Black Metal………..I think DM is a varied music style!

BTTG – Your lyrics are not exclusively written in English – there is this German song (apparently) with German lyrics in Beinspender. Are you into bilingualism or was this pure chance (Zufall) that made things the way they are? Would you like to explore German lyrics in the future?
Christian – Haha, no, it was pure chance. Nothing more, nothing else. Maybe we’ll do it again?!? We’ll see if the lyrics fit into the song…….

BTTG – In previous interviews you have mentioned having started listening to metal at a very young age. Does that mean you still prefer vinyl over CD? Why (not)?
Christian – Yes, I was fuckin’ young, about 4-5 years old. Listening to music like AC/DC, KISS, SAXON, MOTÖRHEAD…. my cousins made me the shit I’m now, haha.
No, I prefer CD, it’s easy to put 6 CD’s in your CD player and sit down and drink some beers. But as an artist I prefer vinyl, because you can see much more on a big vinyl cover.

BTTG – What made you start playing music? Which bands influenced your decision (directly or indirectly) and why did you choose the guitar? In which devious ways does music help you express your ‘artistic’ ambitions? Why DM in particular?
Christian – If you’re listening to all these rock stars, then you wanna become one too! Haha! It was the love of Metal, particularly the extreme one. Therefore you should take an instrument or your voice and try the best. As a young guy, I always wanted a drum kit, but it was not possible in my parents’ flat – and guitar is fuckin’ cool too. Death Metal was the best way to express my feelings and I like this kind of extreme music!

BTTG – You have had bands prior to DISINFECT. How far did they go? How much did you think you have learned in the process? Did you always play DM?
Christian – I had some popular bands and some not so popular bands… it was different but it always had something to do with Death Metal. One of the bands was something between Death and Black. The others were pure Death Metal. The band before DISINFECT was OBSCURE and it was more technical DM in the way of old MORBID ANGEL.

BTTG – You seem to have a number of side projects / activities within music. Could you go into further detail? You have told me about the DEPTH OF WINTER Festival. What philosophy underlies this event?
Christian – No, there are no side projects. The festival is a benefit one; last time, the money was donated for kids suffering from cancer. It’s a Death, Grind and Black Metal festival! www.depth-of-winter.de.vu

BTTG – In the past, you cancelled a number of concerts because of some lousy conditions for the band/ on stage, etc. Actually, I though that kind of things only happened in Portugal, ha. What are DISINFECT’s minimum requirements to perform a concert? What do you think of the general organisation of concerts in Germany and other countries you have played in? What role are the bands given?
Christian – We need some money drinks, food and a sleeping place. The money depends on where we should play… Must say the organizations are good in most countries we played in and there’re always good and bad organizers. We haven’t really had bad experiences till now.

BTTG – You have played with some major acts in the past. Which concerts stuck the stronger to your memory and why? Which bands would you like to play/ tour with?
Christian – The SINISTER tour was fuckin’ cool and funny – especially because of bands like my good friends in APOPHIS!! There’re some favourites: CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE (USA), NILE……and many more haha

BTTG – As an insider in the German UG scene, what image do you have of the metal scene in general (and that goes from Underground to Mainstream)? I have always had this feeling most Germans are into Power/Thrash/Heavy – and don’t gainsay me, I have seen it! Which bands do you recommend?
Christian – I’m not too much in this scene. There’re too many kiddies, especially the Black Metal ones. Looking always evil, but having short hair and after the gig they’ve got to remove the make-up and go to the kindergarten. Haha, I’m doing it my way: having good friends, party and it’s not important what they hear. In our area [Ulm – M] there’s a big DM, BM scene!!

BTTG – What about the Portuguese metal scene? What do you make of it?
Christian – Sorry, but I don’t know the scene in Portugal, maybe we should play there once! The only band I know is MOONSPELL and I don’t like the music….

BTTG – You already have two albums on the way. How different were the studio sessions for each album? Did you use the same studio and producer for both?
Christian – One CD is a live one. We´ll go this year again in the studio. But maybe we´ll change this time… And we’ll go to Sweden… we’ll see.

BTTG – One of the songs in your debut Beinspender (Bone donor) is titled Grave New World. What is the concept behind it? Is it anyhow related to Aldous Huxley's Brave New World? Please elaborate on this.
Christian – It’s maybe something like…playing with words. It’s about our society and that the only god is money. Most people don’t respect each other and shit like that.

BTTG – Your interest in war and warfare is quite evident. Man has it in the blood – the will to kill and corrupt. Why do you focus so much on this subject?
Christian – Yes, I’m reading a lot about WWII. You said it: Man has it in the blood – the will to kill and corrupt haha It’s something normal, you can see it every day on TV. Secondly, every band has an "image" and ours is war. There are so many wannabe satanic bands….

BTTG – Is there any other relevant piece of information you would like to refer to?
Christian – We had some changes in the band and our new vocalist is Alex and our new drummer Thomas and expect a new killer album!!!

BTTG – Your writing torture has come to an end. Feel free to leave a final message and long live DM!
Christian – Thanks a lot for the interview and the chance to introduce our band to the Portuguese Metal heads! Take a look at www.disinfect.de

BORN TO DIE ZINE
 

1. Praised Christian!!! Just I sat down to confessional, and this your chance, to tell me a little about yes so sinful team how as DISINFECT. You have readiness on chat?
Chris: Hail Skowron, thanx a lot to get the chance for an interview in your mag! Let´s begin.

2. se you are team from out of nowhere. Do you want whether not but you must tell us history of conception this death metal - murderers...
CChris: I think for the people in Poland it could be but here we´ve a name in the underground!

The beginning of DISINFECT was in 1999. When we start to play extreme Death Metal. After a lot line-up changes in the band, we made the present line up in the middle of 2000 and hope this one will last! We made a lot of gigs a tour with SINISTER and some smaller tours, played on different festivals and recorded our first official CD Dez. 2000 Jan. 2001
Something importand we´re no beginners we played in a lot of different bands before!

3. By through two years your musical activities you promoted oneself only and with exclusively one material, and this recorded live. Why you did not attempt for edition / extradition at least one in good order recorded demo?
Chris: This was the first chance to get a record really cheap! Second we had a lot of changes in the band and no time to record a demo or CD because it took a lot of time to teach the songs to the new members!
The tracks´re now all on the regular CD.

4. Even this promo live surely you did not spread in large quantities, so thanks to what why succeeded to come into being to you on metal - scene
Chris: The live CD is only a promo CD and to show the people somthing about the music of DISINFECT.We got the popularity through to be allways present! Like interviews, gigs and contacts to other bands, mags, labels and things like this

5. Just and at last we have year 2001. From some time in circulation is your debut album. What You can about him it to say you, co-author this death of metal - exhalation
Chris: I think we´re all proud of it and we know that we made a good job! It´s just fuckin´ brutal Death Metal.
Sailer: The only problem was that we had half a year distence between recording and releasing

6. Yet you these I did not compliment, so now this I act, because plate is really worth this expectations, on which I was convicted...
Chris: Thanx a lot and great to hear this! Hope a lot of other people will think the same!

7. This album this 9 of incredibly aggressive compositions. You oneself describe this short as brutal death metal. What for mark mean you these words. brutal marks means this self what perverse, ill, and can perhaps heavy?
Chris: You can say brutal ,heavy, sick, extreme and it´s the feeling what the sound, music should express.
Sailer: I think it´s a general expression. So people can imagine what people can expect from us.But in the end,it´s up to everybody himself to describe it as sick, brutal or whatever
 
8. Your inspirations this mostly American school metal - of playing. However how as for me, succeeded to you almost perfect to connect both main currents trends this music’s. This which one represent teams from behind oceans, from this what most often plays oneself on old continent. How as you think where lies recipe on success of such result?
Chris: Yes it´s true that the ost influences are in the American brutal Death Metal. I don´t know where the recept is to make this kind of music. Maybe I love the US stile and I´m from Germany and that´s the old continent!
Sailer: In fact,I can´t say very much about,because at the time the songs have been written,I was not a part of the band.But I think we´ll keep on going that musical way.I will surely bring some new musical influences within the Band,but it´s not to change the style.
Chris: Yes. it will be allways brutal Death Metal that´s DISINFECT!!!!!

9. Say me what in translation on English marks means title your plates " Beinspender"
Chris: The meaning of this word is just a play on words. The thing is to spend a leg and the song is about mines!

10. Album you recorded on Czech earth the Earth , in good to well-known fans Exponent Studio. What disappointed you in those regions? in Germany would not be to you more profitably to record?
Chris: No that´s not correct. The Exponent studio is in Slowak Republic. Roger of APOPHIS gave me the address and we know that bands like HYPNOS, KRABATHOR made their CD´s. Second it was much more cheaper to record there and alcohol is fuckin´ cheap haha

11. How as to you oneself spent time among walls this of musical fortress? How much of time occupied to you registering wholes and bringing of all of order?
Chris: The time was cool and fuckin´ drunk and stoned. We had 10 days to record the CD.
Sailer: It was a really great time with a lot of alcohol(Absinth haha and a sweet embraced of a toilet bowl) I think if we wouldn´t have so much fun the record wouldn´t have become this good.

12. Thanks ago this to studio, succeeded to work out to you sound, differing even from this, what we became accustomed to hear on recordings first of all of Czech teams. this effect your consciousnesses this what oneself wants to reach, or else can perhaps contribution this one should belongs oneself to realizer?
Chris: But this was not the reason only of the studio because we knew before how the sound should be. We wanted a US stile sound!

13. Plate revolves already after metal - scene from some time, however how as yet cannot be seen her in no publishing - catalogue of no matter which factory. Siskin you would be forced to editions this own powers? And can perhaps somebody is interested edition you, and I simply about this nothing know?
Chris: That´s not true the CD is now 1 month available and that´s not so long the so called record company released the CD and they said they´ll do the promotion but nothing happend or better not to much and the most work must be done by my self! But you can get the CD at the METAL MERCHANT till now and I hope soon at some other labels, merchants
Sailer: The best´s to make your own label haha

14. Being at your debut falls out to inform maniax, about what you write in one's own texts? For me personally are they enough dark, and beating striking coolness if you know for what goes me...
Chris: The texts portray personal experiences and critizise society and everything we see that´s wrong.
Sailer: Not to forget the gore aspect!

15. You used several of attributes, which grant post to your debut of military character. Some can think, that you go too behind other teams, what slowly becomes / stands up of one's own kind with trend. What you on this ?
Chris: No that what we made´s not a copy of other bands not knew but we think it´s individuel. The most songs on the CD are about war or things in this way and we therefore we needed this way of express it. Next CD will not be the same!
Sailer: Of course war is a wide-spread topic within the extrem metal scene.But it was not to make whole cd about war it was more to support the atmosphere of the songs.

16. As dashes you used sample low-cut from loud film, namely from" Private Ryan". What you judge about this film? Why just he became to you useful?
Chris: We never saw this movie haha We took it just because the sample was cool!

17. Album finishes just moment, in which Nazi slaughters soldier of allies. I have hope, that did not go to you in this moment for!!!!!ing races of supermen, and that you do not have absolutely nothing common with Nazism.
Chris: The reason was a sentence the German soldier said "Bringen wir es hinter uns" and it was perfect for the end of this CD! It´s like let´s make a end! DISINFECT is not a political, religious band. We make lyrics about what we want without compromise! If someone don´t like the lyrics it´s not our problem!
Sailer: I think your interpretation is very strange.It was never meant to be political or whatever.Like Chris said,we had lot of fun and thougt it would very suitable for the end of this musical massacre.

18. What in that case you think about such which one swamp former was second world war? Interests me your sentence as German truly.
Chris: WW II is over second I´m not a German I´m Croatian with a German passport.
Sailer:Of course a lot of shit had happened in that time,but it´s over now. After a long time I think we must stop always looking back to the past,it´s better to look forward.

19. Who created for you cover in which framed is dear plate ? One's own way is this enough grotesque picture and simultaneously possessing hidden meaning.
Chris: The cover was made a friend Florian. It´s the name of the CD "Beinspender" the meaning is a man who spend a leg haha You´ve to take a look on the back cover then you can see that the doctor takes a bite! haha It´s about mines in war in this song.

20. I will ask you yet for title one from compositions. Goes me here about" Grave New World". What is this title grave?
Chris: It´s about the human race and nature. Our race is just a short time on earth but it was enough to destroy our planet!

21. In such once what you judge about end this of stinking valley? You think, that all predictions about his end have some substance?
Chris: I think better next year because I´ve to do a lot of bullshit and need some more time haha No I don´t believe in this but if the humanity wont change soon the end is not far. I don´t mean in some years but it will happen much more faster then we can realize it. Just look what they do with the Amazonas, animals, gene manipulation shit and million other things! On the other side there´re a lot of changes in the nature and clima! The only law is money for to many people, that´s the problem!!

22. By through two years one's own existences succeeded to play to you pretty big quantity of concerts. You played already before large this of world. How as this is to be support? does not hinder you these this , that you must practically prepare the public on coming these greatest? How as you think, whether is chance, that in futures this you support’s?
Chris: It´s allways this way you´ve to go. No band is born as headliner. Second we played often headliner gigs now on the AUTUMN NIGHTS festival we´ll be the headliner band! I think it´s harder for some bands when we play before them because the people went crazy when they see us and there´s no energy left for the other band. haha
Sailer: In the meantime we´ve could change the role from opener to headliner! Especially here in this area but it took us a lot of playing so I think we deserve it!

23. You played also on several greater such festivals how as Obscene, Newcomer. Where you these oneself plays better, in places on enough large space, or else in little clubs, where contact / socket with the public is about many nearer?
Chris: It´s different. If it´s a really big audience in a club or some people on a festival, the club would be better. It depends where, how many people and at what time we had to play! The best thing is on a big festival by night!
Sailer: We try to keep the contact with the people everywhere. If we play in clubs or on festivals!

24. You numbered / you credited also tour at side oneself murderers SINISTER How as to you oneself spent time with such if not to look with giants brutal of playing?
Chris: It was cool time I knew them some years before. We had a lot of fun and drunken times or only drunken times?? haha

25. In 2000 year you became / you remained best with concert - team in Switzerland...
Chris: Yes, we had a big resonance last year and we made a good show there and now we had the chance to play this year there again! The people in Switzerland are really crazy! Cool audience.

26. You played already more than once outside borders German, but how as to this times smartly you avoid Poland... You will play at us at last?
Chris: Yes, we played a lot gigs in different countries but we tried it in Poland but the proper possibility was not given till now! We´ll come for sure. Maybe this year because we want to make a tour to promote our CD! Maybe you can help us?

27. I heard, that on scene you are real beasts...
Chris: Thanx that´s true, when we came on stage it´s from the first accord till the end only fuckin´ brutality. The people want to see a cool band on stage and no faggot assholes that just stand around and look boring!
Sailer: i think you know it very good when you go on a concert and the band borings you.We never want that the audience is bored.We want them to have a good time with some total fucking destruction,hahahaha
 

28. You are team from German. For many German death metal sounds enough egzotic. How as this became, that you decided to play yes so and not otherwise?
Chris: Why exotic? Here in our area is a big Death Metal and Black Metal scene! I think it´s a good possibility to express your feelings. I think the music is a tipicall German music Heavy Metal and Germany I think it´s the same!
Sailer: You know like KREATOR, SODOM, HELLOWEEN and all the other Metal origins.

29. In the face this, whether is chance that some team from your motherlands us yet miles courteously surprised? Which one teams You can instruct us?
Chris: FLESHCRAWL, ANASARCA, OBSCENITY, APOPHIS, OF TREES AND ORCHIDES, GALLERY OF DARKNESS, JACK SLATER
Sailer: FALLEN SAINTS, FLESHCRAWL, I think they´re the best what German underground has to give

30. People at you!!!!! delight in heavy and power metal - to playing. What you think about this of kind to music? oneself you are confessor this of musical current trend?
Chris: I don´t like this kind of music! Maybe there´re some good musicians but that´s all haha I only listen to Death Metal and some good Black Metal and Grind.
Sailer:I like some of the old ones like the first Helloween and some Blind Guardian.But I Hate this new so called Metal-shit like Hammerfall and Edguy.It´s childish kindergarten shit and has absolutely nothing to do with Metal in any way

31. I will ask you for one thing. Tomasz has such enough Polish name. has he something common with Polish nation ?
Chris: Yes. Let´s say something Tomasz! haha
Tomasz: Tak masz racie, rodzenstwo pochodzi z polski. Pewnie sie dziwisz dlaczego do tej pory nic niemowilem, bo ci dwaj inni mnie teraz rozwiazali bo mi walili w dupe bo my wszyscy jestesmy homosexualistami!

32. I have for you sad message. Time already to finish these torture. Taste to encourage maniax available of your album.
Chris: If you want to listen to some good fuckin´brutal Death Metal with some really good songs and sound buy this shit!
Tomasz. Lay down your souls to the gods of Death n´ Roll
Sailer: I can promisse you some extraterestrical transcendental mindblowing assfucking (only girls) mindopening journey through the dark corners of your balls

33. I would forget to ask for nearest future...
Chris: Hope a tour to promote the CD. A lot of gigs a new deal with a good label.

34. You can now growl, and to drawl out across teeth several of words on farewell. Keep.
Chris: Thanx a lot for the chance to get this interview and to spread our words! Listen to more Death Metal!
Sailer:Thanx for your support. Keep the underground alive
Tomasz: Boze, nienawidze ich!!!
 


BRIGHT EYES

Millionen ohne Melodien?
Mit "Beinspender" haben die Ludwigsburger mal so eines der besten deutschen Death Metal-Alben des Jahres vorgelegt. Kaum zu glauben, dass das Werk über das Minilabel Rest In Hell erscheint. Bandgründer, Sprachrohr, Klampfer, redseliger und sympathischer Mastermind der Band, Christian Kilian, stellte sich, wenige Tage nach dem von ihm veranstalteten "Depth of Winter" Festival den Fragen. Zuerst zog er ein positives Resümee des Underground-Festivals, zu dem trotz starker Konkurrenz in der Region am selben Tag rund 250 Metal-Fans erschienen waren und das ohne Probleme abgelaufen war. Dass das staatlich geförderte Jugendhaus ihm trotz Benefiz-Charakter des Festivals Kohle für die Miete abverlangte, ärgerte ihn aber noch immer.

Ich vermute, auch daher kommt Deine Motivation, so extreme und unkommerzielle Musik zu machen? Ist es ein "Way of life" oder auch eine gute Möglichkeit, die Alltagsaggressionen über die Musik und die Texte abzubauen?

"Total, ich leb diese Musik", sprudelt es enthusiastisch aus dem Hörer, "sonst wäre ich kaum so dumm, soviel Zeit in alles zu investieren. Klar, ist es auch die einzige Form, um Aggressionen abzubauen ohne gleich den Leuten eine reinzuhauen."

Wenn in den Texten "persönliche Erfahrungen" verarbeitet werden, können die so positiv nicht sein, bzw, sie wirken zynisch, was Titel wie "Beinspender", "One night steak" oder "Grave new world" zeigen.

"Eigentlich eher zynisch, wir nehmen ziemlich viel auf den Arm. Wir haben kriegerische Texte, schreiben aber nicht für und gegen den Krieg. Daran können wir nichts ändern, sondern nur sagen wie blöd wir das finden. "One night steak", hat die Message, dass man sich bei solchen Aktionen eher wie ein Stück Fleisch präsentiert."

Es gab vor vielen Jahren die Diskussion, dass Death Metal brutale und blutige Lyrics haben "muss" – alles andere sei "Life Metal". DISINFECT haben zwar heftige Texte, aber sie zeigen soziales Engagement, wie mit dem Festival. Death oder Life Metal?

"Weder noch – es ist extreme Musik. Es geht schon von der Musik her nicht, dass Death Metal Liebes-Texte hat, sondern extreme Sachen behandelt. Es ist aber auch nichts Falsches daran, über die eigene Umwelt zu schreiben."

Für ein Review ist es okay, wenn man eine Schublade hat, aber das Problem ist, dass man den Schrank nicht mehr sieht. Auch Chris ist dieser Meinung, zu extrem sei die Unterscheidung mittlerweile geworden. Einen groben Anhalt brauche man schon, aber weniger wäre halt mehr.

Chris, was Neues habt Ihr nicht erfunden, dass Ihr einige Erfahrung in anderen Bands gesammelt habt, hört man aber, denn die Songs klingen ausgereift.

"Ich hab schon in vielen Bands zuvor gespielt und auch die anderen haben 10 Jahre Erfahrung. Neues wird wohl niemand mehr so schnell erfinden. Höchstens verfeinern."

Das einzige Manko an "Beinspender" ist die fehlende Eingängigkeit – ein prägnanter Chorus oder eine Melodie. Verschließt Du Dich generell gegen solche Elemente oder sind die Songs Versuche, die ausgebaut werden?

"Schwer zu sagen. Ich möchte nicht zu melodisch werden, es soll brutale Musik bleiben. Die neuen Songs sind noch heftiger, aber auch mit langsamen Parts. Da gibt’s auch ein paar rhythmische Stellen."

Auch die anderen Bandmitglieder werden sich verstärkt ins Songwriting einbringen und Chris plant, endlich Soli einzubauen.

Was ich kaum verstehe – "Beinspender" ist eines der besten deutschen Death Metal-Alben 2001 und Ihr habt kein großes Label hinter Euch. Du hast mir gesagt, weil Ihr Euch net groß beworben habt. Wollt Ihr nicht auf ein größeres Label? Ist Euch ein kleines, das in der Nähe liegt, lieber?

"Ich mache viel für die Band und es ist mir fast zuviel. Wir hatten einen Deal mit einem anderen Label, das uns beschissen hat. Danach haben Rest In Hell gesagt, dass sie es machen möchten. Für mich ist es schon wichtig, dass sie in der Nähe sind, denn dann kann ich mit ihnen reden. Der Nachteil ist natürlich, dass sie kein Geld haben."

Werbung sollte eine Firma nach schon machen, es sei schwierig, das als Band anzuleiern. Die Labelgröße sei kein entscheidendes Kriterium, DISINFECT möchten nur einen fairen Deal. Verarschen lassen will sich der resolute Todesbleier keinesfalls.

Auf der professionellen Page http://www.disinfect.de ist alles drauf. Links, Merchandise, mp3. Für Chris eine leichte Entscheidung, Songs für lau anzubieten.

"Es sind eh nur zwei Songs. Es ist doch okay, wenn sich alle vorher ein Urteil bilden können."

Macht es Sinn, einen guten Text zu schreiben, wenn der Frontmann infernalisch grunzt und ihn keiner versteht?

"Deswegen drucken wir die Texte auch ab, ich sehe die Stimme im Death Metal eher als Instrument."

Was ist Deiner Meinung nach wichtiger, wenn man eine Band führt – Professionalität oder Feeling?

"Für mich muss es eine Mischung sein, man muss professionell arbeiten und das Feeling haben, mit wem man und wie man redet. Mit wem man was zu tun haben möchte. Man kann in diesem Business sehr schnell auf die Schnauze fallen und verarscht werden. Magazine, Labels, Konzerte. Aus dem Feeling entwickelt sich auch die Professionalität", vertritt der Selbständige seine Philosophie. Ums Geldverdienen sei es nie gegangen, die Band wolle nur von Album zu Album wachsen. Ohne Idealismus gehe die Szene nichts mehr, man brauche ihn.

Du bist einer, der auf einem professionellen Level fast alles selbst macht. Bist Du ein "Band-Diktator" oder eher der "Steuermann"?

"So könnte man es nennen, die anderen überlassen mir aber auch alles freiwillig. Ich habe die Band gegründet. Wenn ich Hilfe brauche, bekomme ich sie aber", springt er für seine Jungs ins Feld.

Hast Du ein Problem, anderen was zuzutrauen? Ist ja sicher auch nicht einfach, bevor man jemand freie Hand läßt?

"Ein bißchen liegt’s schon daran", beginnt er zögernd, "man kann nicht jeden alles machen lassen, weil vielleicht gebremst wird." Manchmal mache er 30 Päckchen am Tag, die alle mit persönlichem Anschrieben versehen werden (kann ich bestätigen – d. Verf.), da komme sein Idealismus durch. Chris hat sich strenge Maßstäbe auferlegt. Mails werden innerhalb von 2 Tagen bearbeitet, wenn jemand Geld für eine CD schickt, wird sie spätestens einen Tag danach versandt.

DISINFECT sind ein Sprungbrett für Death Metal-Musiker. Ex-Shouter Chris singt jetzt bei MY DARKEST HATE. Hast Du schon ein Angebot von Cannibal Corpse?

"Haha, zu schön um wahr zu sein! Deswegen wurde ich mal aus einer Death/Black Metal-Truppe rausgeworfen, weil ich sehr auf Death Metal stehe und ich die Band eh verlassen würde, wenn mich CANNIBAL CORPSE ansprechen würden."

"Wenn man die Hauptband als Hauptband sieht und andere Ideen anderweitig auslebt, ist es besser, eine weitere Band zu machen, bevor es Stress gibt", lautet Chris‘ Meinung zu Seitenprojekten. Bei DISINFECT werde es nur Death Metal-Ideen geben, stellt er klar. Bislang habe auch noch niemand die Band wegen des Namens in die berühmte "DIS..."-Crustcore-Ecke gepackt.

Nach einem netten Break, bei Herrn K. klingelte das Handy mit klassischer Melodie, näherten wir uns dem Ende.

Du trägst Dein Herz auf der Zunge. Läßt Dir im ersten Moment Äußerungen entlocken, die Du evtl. bereust oder überlegst Du Dir vorher genau, in welche Richtung Du willst?

"Eigentlich nicht, ich bin da offen und antworte spontan. Das ist mir ziemlich egal. So lange ich niemand persönlich beleidige, macht das nichts. Wenn jemand die völlige Wahrheit hören will, sage ich ihm die auch."

Probleme werden bei Chris ausdiskutiert, bei politischen Fragen käme es immer auf den Fragesteller an. Politik und die Band hätten aber nichts miteinander zu tun.

Zu welchen Fragen wird es nie eine Antwort von Dir geben?

"Wenn es persönlich an mich geht oder man versucht mich zu beleidigen oder provozieren."

Das ist sicher nicht der Fall, denn "Beinspender" ist für DISINFECT eine Marke im Death Metal, die andere Bands erst übertreffen müssen.

BRUTAL COMMUNITY

11. First of all I welcome you in Brutal Community Zine!! What is happening in Disinfect currently?
Hi Qras. We´re now to promote our new CD called "Beinspender" playing on some festivals and gigs and doing some new songs for the next CD. The other thing is I´m doing a benefit festival called DEPTH OF WINTER 5 with 12 extreme bands from Europe.

2. Ok... we know this yet... Now will be very classical question... heheh.. Could you intriduce Polish fans to Disinfect?
Yeah, ok I´ll try. DISINFECT is a fuckin´ brutal Death Metal band from Germany. We make fast, extreme and brutal music and I think we do it well!

3. What does title of your mini - "Beinspender" mean?? I assocaite it with english "get rid of..." or somethink like that.. Am I close?
No, this`s a lyric about a soldier and warmines on the CD . He´s loosing a leg when he stands on a mine. It´s something like to play with words and a little bit ironic haha

4. You play brutal death metal. Tell me Christian: do you think in this genre everything has been played? What prospects for such a music do you see?
The most thinks you can do are played. Maybe you can make it a little bit different and faster, technical but there´s not to much space to do because if you do to much you´ll create or maybe do a different music stile and no more this brutal music. I see that the scene is growing after to many years of to much Black Metal!

5. Let's talk about you publisher... What firm is it? I haven't heard about it...
It´s a label called REST IN HELL RECORDS from a city in the near in south Germany. They´re not doing to much because they don´t have the money!! That´s really fuckin´ for us especially as a new band on the market! The most work is allways made by my self!

6. Tell me about your cooperation with them. Are you satisfied?
No, like I said before we´re not to happy with our situation. If nothing will happen we´ll change the label soon!!!

7. And now let's talk about Your lyrics. You sing rather about "normal" things... Don't you like piles of warm guts? haha...
HAHA yes allways but that´s not the theme of our current CD we´ve one song in this way "After killing" it´s about a serial killer. This CD had more lyrics about the normal things in live like war, personal fews and life The next CD will be different you´ll see the lyrics will be much more gory and sex influenced haha

8. You say that brutal American bands inspire you... What bands?
There´re a lot of them haha Like CANIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE, DYING FETUS, NILE, SKINLESS, MORTICIAN, MONSTROSITY, BRUTALITY or from Canada CRYPTOPSYand KATAKLYSM yes that´s the way music should be haha

9. Ok... How would you compare present situation on brutal music scene with from the beginning of 90's one?
Now the whole scene had to grow again. There´s a new generation of kids we´ve to show them that metal is not dead not the MTV bullshit like Limp Bizkiz, Papa Roach and all the faggot assholes this´re no metal bands!!! There´re some people at big companies beside them they knew how to make money and they say you have to make the music like this or that! In the beginning this was a great scene with a lot of cool bands and concerts but now there´re to many false bands they only do this music because it´s going popular! Before years they made Black Metal and now they try to do Death Metal. Hope the Death Metal fans will see this but it´s dangerous for people they started listening to Death Metal and are younger because they think this´s DM! The other problem´s this bands have bigger labels behind them and they can make this with good promotion!

10. Disinfect is a next solid band playing brutal death metal with a musician with Polish origin... P.Mazurkiewicz started it in powerful Cannibal Corpse...haha... What has Tomasz in common with Poland?
There´re two things he plays fuckin´fast and great drums like Paul and his parents are from Poland! Hope will make it the same like CORPSE haha

11. I know you play live a lot... What places do you prefer? Small, moody clubs or big festivals? I am curious about it, though I'd choose the first option without reflection....haha
It´s not to importend where, it´s importend to get the right people and to transport the feeling we´ve on stage!! But if we´ll get the chance to play on a real big festival at night this would be fuckin´ great haha Thousands of Death Metal fans in front of you diving and getting crazy!!

12. I've heard that you had great tour with Sinister... Tell me something about it's new vocalist.
The only thing I new they´ve a new one linke at every CD haha It´s a woman I think the band before she played was OKKULT?!?! But I never saw them in this new line up. We played last year on the tour together and there was Joost at the vocals, the vocalist of INHUME. It was a funny and fuckin´ drunken time haha

13. What are reactions of people on your concerts? What everybody who haven't seen you should expect?
From the first to the last accord we´re getting crazy on stage. We´re no boring band like going on stage standing there and just playing your set down. We make a show for the people in front of us and they can see that we love what we do!!

14. When are you going to play in Poland? Summer-time is great period for a few gigs abroad...
We´ll do a tour in end of November beginning of December like I think and hope!! And maybe we´ll do some gigs in Poland too!! There´ll be maybe a polish band on tour with us?!?! We´ll see haha

15. Brutal Community Zine deals with brutal sorts of hardcore too.. tell what is your attitude to this music. I saw among your thanks CRAWLSPACE, is it creator of "Enter the Realm of Chaos? How do you recollect this horde?
Sorry, no I´m not in this kind of music! I only knew SICK OF IT ALL and MADBALL and then....?!?! CRAWLSPACE are good friends of us a cool band with cool music but not a typical Hard Core band I think so?!?! We played some gigs together.

16. Now I give you a floor: You can ask your selves and answer!!!
Ok I´ll try it haha Ok Chris what´re things most you love?
First my girlfriend, sex, my band, making music, listening to music and
drink beer and this really a lot haha

Qras, thanx a lot for your interview and the chance for us to show the
poeple in Poland that DISINFECT is a brutal Death Metal band!
Greetings to the polish Death Metal fans!! Maybe we´ll see us on tour!
 


BRUTALLICA

1. Hello Christian! Since your band is not well known to us I would like to start my interview with the presentation of DISINFECT...
Hi, yes sure! DISINFECT started back in 1999 at this time I had a band called OBSCURE and it was more technical midtempo Death Metal and I had a lot new ideas and it was not the way OBSCURE want to go and I decided to make DISINFECT with some friends as a side projekt some weeks later OBSCURE split off after 6 years and DISINFECT was my fulltime job-band! We had many changes in the band! The band is complete since middle of 2000 and stronger then ever!!

2. Definitely your band is among my 10 favourite from Europe! Anyway, why did you orientate exactly to Death Metal? Maybe you find genres as Gothic or Black Metal too trendy yet?
Great to hear that!! Thanks! It was clear that only this kind of music could and should be played!! I´m into Death Metal since the beginnings of DM it´s the most powerful music I knew! Gothic HAHA No way that´s really gay music! Some old school Black Metal things are great but without this wimpy keyboard sound but I don´t like the vox to much! They´re a little bit to high haha

3. Some pals (from Germany) told me of your awesome gigs... How it feels to be on stage? What about the crowd reactions?
Yeah? Great to hear that! Yes, we´re a strong live band from the beginning till the end of the show there´s no break only power on stage and I think the crowd can realize it and then went crazy! In the most time the reactions arevery good! The stage is our real home haha

4. Let's discuss your "Beinspender" debut for a while... As I can see, the guy(s) from Exponent Studio have done really great gob! Was it hard to record the 9 tracks?
It was a hard and funny job! It was the first time to make a record in a country were the people can´t speak german or even bad english haha You have to talk with hands and feet haha But it was very good and I think we´ll be there next time, too! Especially the beer, alcohol is so cheap that we had to go there again haha

5. Quite often band members are busy also with side projects currently. How about the people of DISINFECT?
There´re some side projekts and it´s Ok because we´ll make only brutal Death Metal and no other stiles! It´s better then to say no your ideas are not so welcome because there´re to much melodies or it´s to slow or what ever and therefore you need side projekts where you can realize it!

6. Is there a band which you dream of touring with? What would you say about INCANTATION for example?
Yes, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, DEEDS OF FLESH,.... some other bands too haha No, I never listened to INCANTATION, hope you´ll believe me but that´s true!! A lot reviews said our music could be descriped with a touch of INCANTATION, IMMOLATION but I don´t know the music! I only bought a IMMOLATION CD after that, to hear what the magazines ment haha

7. Not long ago the Death Metal scene lost a cult representative... What memories will Chuck Schuldiner leave you with?
He was one of the founder of Death Metal like POSSESED! He made a really big step for the extreme scene and some very good albums!

8. I suppose you're a connoisseur of female beauty just like me - what could you tell me about women in Germany? Are they all as tempting as Claudia Schiffer or Heidi Klum?
Yeah!!! Girls, girls, girls... haha Woman in Germany are like in every country nice or sometimes ugly haha They´re Ok but sometimes to arrogant! The good thing is the most are shaved (not in the face haha)

9.Your 10 favourite albums?
That´s fuckin´ hard because it changes often! The most albums from every of this bands are good!
1. CANNIBAL CORPSE - Tomb of the Mutilated
2. CANNIBAL CORPSE - Butchered at Birth
3. DEICIDE - Once upon the Cross
4. DEICIDE - Serpent of the Light
5. TERRORIZER- World Downfall
6. MORBID ANGEL - Altars of Madness
7. DEEDS OF FLESH - Path of the Weakening
8. NILE - Amongst the Catacombs of Nephrem-Ka
9. DYING FETUS- Killing on Adrenaline
10. ILLDISPOSED - Four Depressive Seasons

10. Honestly speaking I haven't heard of Rest In Hell Records before... Could you say something of the very label, are you satisfied with its work?
They´re a small label from our area! No, we aren´t satisfied!! The only thing they did is to manufacture the CD´s! They didn´t make real advertising!! We´ll see what time will bring?! Maybe we´ll get a better deal!

11. The country I live in is very small and the people who know about it are too few actually... Are you acquainted any Bulgarian bands/labels/zines?
I don´t no bands from your country. A label BUTCHERY MUSIC and the BRUTALLICA, FORLORN MAG. But I think you´ve a good and strong underground!

12. Imagine that you meet a Death Metal fan in chat: which bands would you (possibly) compare DISINFECT with so that he/she could get an idea of what your music is like?
Let me see! First it´s brutal Death Metal american stile with european influences and the bands...?!?! Hard to say. The people should take a look at our page or buy the CD that´s the best thing I can say haha

13. Are you optimistic about Germany and The World Championship 2002?
HAHA if they´ll have so much luck like the time before, maybe?!?! I don´t know haha

14. Could you make some comparisons between Nuclear Blast, Century Media and Last Episode? This´re all labels. haha NUCLEAR BLAST was in the beginning a great label!! But now only gay Metal shit and the only law is money!!
I can´t say to much about CENTURY MEDIA the only thing is that they helped me with some sponsoring for my festival DEPTH OF WINTER, it was great to get some CD´s, poster and other stuff for free to raffle them!! I thought LAST EPISODE are bust? haha You can allways here they don´t have any money and can´t pay the bills.

15. I guess that's all for now. What would you tell the fans in conclusion?
Thanks a lot Hristo! It was a cool interview and you outside listen to more brutal Death Metal and take a look at www.disinfect.de and try some of our free songs maybe you´ll like it and then you should buy the CD! haha Hail to the Bulgarian Death Metal fans!!

- Why did you choose a german album name?
There´s no big reason. It´s a cool name that´s all. The next albums name will be in english.

- Is it important to let us know you are from Germany?
No, that was not the reason. But I think if you read the names and when you see the address you´ll know it haha

- Your opinion on the European Unity and the Euro?
This European Unity is wrong to many different countrys especially because of the financial power. First the strongest countrys should make this and after that piece by piece the others could come.

- Believe in spiritual orgasms?
´The only law is my dick in a whole of a nice woman but I never tried it! Maybe I should do it once to knew what I´ll never do again haha

- The best promotion line you heard about "Beinspender"?
There´re some good lines. But the best was from the Schwermetal mag from Switzerland Man nehme Gott und Teufel zusammen und multipliziere das Ganze mit einer Million und erhalte so dann einen sechsundvierzigstel der Genialität des Disinfect-Debuts "Beinspender" It means you should take god and devil together multiply it with 1 million and then you´ll get the 46 piece of the genius of DISINFECT´s debut "Beinspender"

- Why should we try to catch you live?
I think we´re a very good live band from the first to the last chord! Only raw power on stage!!

- Do you prefer to play at festivals or small gigs?
Festivals are great because you can reach a lot people but in a club there is a different clima and you could smell the adrenaline of the fans!

- How does a gig look like? Hard and static?
Without compromise, there should be no long breaks between the songs and only loud and hard music with a good stage acting!!

- Something else you wanna say?
Take a look at our page www.disinfect.de and listen to some tracks or try to see is us live! Our new longsleeves "Nordic Thunder" are made!!

CMAR

After great and professional performance in club «Mocvara» (Zagreb), we caught a chance to speak with Chris, lead guitarist of Disinfect. A huge relief was the fact that Chris is Croat by origin and fluently speaks Croatian. The rest of the band are: Markus (rhythm guitars), Jochen (bass), Tomasz (drums) i Jochen (vocals).

For how long do you exist and where are you from?
The band exists for about three years now, and we are coming from Germany.

Do you have any idols, and did any of them had influence on your creation?
We have no influences in our music, its all our work. Originality is very important. We are fans of Deicide, Deeds Of Flesh, Mortician, Dying Fetus, Monstrosity, Morbid Angel, etc, old school.

How old are members of the band?
From 23-28.

How often do you have rehearsals?
Once a week.

What do you say about the phenomenon so-called nu-metal?
Blaaargh!!! Haha

I believe that the reaction to present Metallica is similar?
Haha. They shoud`ve change their name. I think its ridiculous to make such a change in their music and leave their old name.

What do you say about metal today, regarding the 80-es?
Metal is rising again, definitely. `80-es? It cannot be repeated.

Does all this tours and CDs payoff?
No, there is no payoff. All we do, we do it with love and passion that we have for brutal metal.

What is your goal, and what are youre future plans?
Our goal is definitely agressivity. To play more agressive and brutal metal as possible. On our next album we are lowering the guitars, for more powerfull sound.

What is your religion orientation?
Well, we believe in God... but not in the Jewish one, haha. Anyway, in band are present from atheist to people who believe in something.

Have you ever heard for any Croatian metal band?
Only for Drinking Skull. And we used to hang around with them.

How did you like the audience around here?
Well, the people was not numerous, but they were passionate and the atmosphere was of quality.

Did you like club «Mocvara», and do you have in plan to visit us again?
Club is OK, and if we`ll manage, and if people will be interested, we will come for sure.

Thanx for interview, hope to see you again!
See ya!

Disinfect
Nakon odlicnog i profesionalnog nastupa, dobili smo priliku porazgovarati s Chrisom, vodecim gitaristom Disinfecta. Razgovor je bio olakšan cinjenicom da je Chris porijeklom iz Hrvatske i tecno govori hrvatski. Ostatak banda inace cine : Markus (rhythm guitars), Jochen (bass), Tomasz (drums) i Jochen (vocals).

Koliko vec dugo postojite kao band i odakle ste?
-Band postoji koje tri godine, a dolazimo iz Njemacke.

Imate li kakve uzore u metalu, i koji su vaši utjecaji?
-Na našu muziku ne utjece ni jedan band, stvaramo je sami. Originalnost je bitna. Inace smo obozavatelji CANNIBAL CORPSE (moji bogovi haha); DEICIDE, DEEDS OF FLESH, MORTICIAN, NILE, DYING FETUS, MONSTROSITY, MORBID ANGEL, LIVIDITY, SKINLESS....stare škole.

Clanovi banda imaju koliko godina?
-U rasponu od 23-28.

Koliko cesto imate probe?
-Jednom tjedno.

Što kazete na pojavu koja se naziva nu-metal?
-Blaaargh!!! haha

Komentar na Metallicu je vjerujem slican?
- Haha. Trebali su promijeniti ime. Mislim da je blesavo napraviti takvu promjenu u muzici i ostaviti staro ime banda.

Što kazete na metal danas, recimo u usporedbi s `80-ima?
-Metal je ponovno u usponu, sigurno. `80-te? To se ne moze ponoviti.

Koliko vam se novcano isplate turneje, CDi i sl.?
-Isplativosti nema. Sve što radimo, radimo iz ljubavi i strasti prema brutalnom metalu.

Koji je cilj Disinfecta i koji su buduci planovi?
-Cilj nam je definitivno agresivnost. Svirati što agresivniji i brutalniji metal. Na slijedecem albumu cemo «spustiti» gitare radi još jaceg zvuka.

Kako ste orijentirani na religijskom polju?
-Pa vjerujemo u Boga... ali ne u zidovskog, haha. Inace, u bandu imamo od ateista pa do ljudi koji u nesto vjeruju.

Jeste li culi za koji hrvatski metal band?
- Samo za Drinking Skull. A s njima smo se i druzili jedno vrijeme.

Kako vam se svidjela ovdašnja publika?
-Bilo je premalo ljudi, ali su bili strastveni i atmosfera je bila kvalitetna.

Kako vam se svidio prostor Mocvare, i imate li namjeru ponovno nas posjetiti?
-Prostor je OK. Ako cemo biti u prilici, i ako ce biti zainteresiranih, doci cemo sigurno.

Hvala na interviewu, nadamo se da se vidimo ponovno!
Vidimo se!

DEAD IN THE ABSENCE OF AGONY
 
 Hallo Chris! Wie geht’s denn so? Hoffe Du bist gut ins neue Jahrtausend getorkelt und hast das Auto am Neujahrsmorgen stehen gelassen!? Was macht eigentlich Deine Nachbarin? Verhält sie sich ruhig...? Kürzlich hat sie Dir ja im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes den Hahn abgedreht...?!!!?
Hi, Mr. Janko. Mir geht’s O.K. und Dir? haha Ja, das neue Jahr war recht feucht & fröhlich. Das Jahrtausend beginnt erst nächstes Jahr, rein rechnerisch gesehen!!
Meine geliebte Nachbarin befindet sich immer noch im Streik. Dieser kleine wandelnde Meter, Analbiber! Werde gerade von sämtlichen Hilfsorganisationen mit Wasser versorgt oder besser gesagt den Eltern. Was soll die Frage? Du warst ja am Abend davor doch auch da und kennst den Grund hoho

Ich wette Du hängst schon wieder vorm Computer rum und mailst schamlos in der Weltgeschichte umher, oder zumindest hast Du das bis gerade getan...
Ja, es stimmt, da ich ja das Interview vorm PC mach haha Aber, hast recht ich war gerade drinnen, muß sein!

Irgendwo ein Bierchen in Deiner Nähe? Oder hast Du Dir gute Vorsätze fürs neue Jahr gefaßt und bist auf O-Saft umgestiegen, verdammt?
Bier ist schon in der Nähe nur leider leer, ist vom Vorabend. Vorsatz: Nie wieder Bier nur noch O-Saft & Wodka. Ist ja auch besser lieber ein paar Vitamine zu sich nehmen, durch den Wodka!hehe

Ja, wie schon erwähnt nutzt Du ja das Internet/e-mail recht exzessiv um die Werbetrommel für DISINFECT zu rühren. Da das ja nun für die meisten von uns noch immer ein verhältnismäßig neues Medium/Spielzeug ist, bin ich eigentlich der Meinung, daß man auf diese Weise, zumindest wenn man soviel Zeit investiert, wie Du es augenscheinlich tust, kräftig was erreichen kann. Immerhin gibt’s auch nach wie vor ´ne ganze Menge Leute die ihre Post auf die traditionelle Art und Weise „machen", also Briefe schreiben und die Weltpost mit geklebten Marken veräppeln, das ganze Ballett also. Du bearbeitest ja dagegen ja (beinahe) jungfräuliches Terrain(?)...
Man kann wirklich sehr viel erreichen!! Wir haben einiges an Gigs und Festivals jetzt dadurch bekommen. Es werden auch viele Leute auf einen aufmerksam und man lernt schnell neue Leute kennen. Besonders Sachen wie ICQ ist um einiges billiger als telefonieren (wenn viele um die selbe Zeit drinnen sind). Die Home-Page ist auch gut besucht! Ich schätze es wird von Tag zu Tag beliebter im Net.
Briefe schreibe ich immer noch, besonders wenn ich Promos verschicke an Clubs, Labels oder an andere Bands. Der Vorteil hier ist das man Flyer dazu legen kann und andere Bands supporten kann oder auch supportet wird!

Trotz Deiner Vorarbeit gibt’s da draußen noch Leute die gerade das erste Mal von DISINFECT lesen und ich denke es wäre vielleicht nicht allzu verkehrt bei jenen Kids etwas Aufklärungsarbeit bezüglich der Bandgeschichte zu leisten. Wie also war die Sache mit den Bienchen und Blümchen...
Tja, eigentlich war es als Nebenprojekt geplant aber als sich OBSCURE aufgelöst haben wurde es zu meinem Hauptding. Es fing alles mit Claudio (SACRIFICIUM) an der auch an einem Nebenprojekt, das schön schnell und brutal ist, interessiert war. Das war an einem wunderschönen besoffenen Fr. Abend in der Rock Fabrik, neue Leute waren schnell da. Schenk (CARRION) Baß, Heiko drums, Jan Vocals. Jan und Heiko mußten zwecks Studium aussteigen. Die Neuen sind jetzt Olli (REVENGE OF INSANITY) drums und Chris (Ex-PALE) Vocals. Ich muß sagen die Band ist jetzt wirklich perfekt! Coole Jungs!

Hab da mal was aufgeschnappt, so von wegen als Bandname wäre mal GARGLEBLASTER oder was ähnliches im Gespräch gewesen!?!
Ja, das war mal die Idee vom Jan aber ich war von Anfang an dagegen. Finde der Name klingt etwas peinlich. Falls jemand denkt der Name kommt ihm bekannt vor, dann muß er bloß das Buch „Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis" lesen.

Euer Logo ist für den Künstler, der es entworfen und gezeichnet hat ja recht ungewöhnlich, oder was meinst Du? Hast Du Lust unseren Lesern zu verraten wer der Kerl ist und wie Du gerade auf in gekommen bist?
Der Christophe Szpajdel hatte es netter weise gemacht. Wer ihn nicht kennt, er hat die Logos für EMPEROR, OLD MAN`S CHILD, MOONSPELL .....gemacht. Ich war ungewohnter weise etwas angetrunken auf einem Konzert und habe PANDEMIA (CZ) besucht, mit denen ich befreundet bin und habe ihnen von meiner neuen Band erzählt. Die meinten sie kennen jemand der sicher was für uns machen würde. Die Jungs haben ihn angemailt und er hat dann mir eine Mail geschrieben ich habe ihm den Namen und die Musikrichtung gesagt und er war gleich einverstanden, was für uns zu machen! Sehr netter Typ, wer will kann es auch mal versuchen hier seine E-Mail Adresse Fehler! Textmarke nicht definiert.

So, nun mal angenommen Euer Sänger würde Euch bei der nächsten Probe vor vollendete Tatsachen stellen und „kündigen". Beim anschließenden Krisengespräch kommt ihr mehrheitlich überein, den Versuch zu wagen und ein Mädchen hinterm Mikro zu plazieren. Schon allein aus Publicitiegründen(...) Da aber keiner von Euch ein grunzendes Frauenwunder kennt und Du quasi für die organisatorischen Belange zuständig bist, wird Dir die Ehre zuteil in den größeren deutschen Metalmagazinen eine „Death Metal Band sucht Frontfrau"- Anzeige zu schalten. Wie würde denn diese in etwa lauten...?
Wie ich sicher weiß, wäre keiner für eine Frontfrau aber um Dir einen Spaß zu bereiten.
Death Metal Band sucht Dich! Weiblich, jung und sexy solltest zwischen 18-25J. und 165-175cm groß sein , sportliche Figur, lange Haare haben, große Tit.. und willig sein, damit meinen wir hinterm Mikro! Falls Du LUST hast melde Dich bei mir, für ein kurzes Vorstellungsgespräch und eine Probe Deine Könnens.
Hoffe das war nett genug ausgedrückt hahaha

Na gut und nun die Hosen runter: Was ist Dir persönlich wichtiger?
a)Musik

b)Sex
c)Bier

So, da ich leider im Moment Solo bin fällt der Sex mal ausnahmsweise raus (Naja, obwohl man doch ab und zu ein nettes junges Ding kennenlernt, der man seine Briefmarkensammlung zeigt hehe). Hmm, ich muß sagen das, die Musik (Death Metal) und das Bier bei mir eine Symbiose eingegangen sind haha Und das Eine ohne das Andere nicht sein kann. Aber wenn ich ehrlich bin finde ich alles drei sehr WICHTIG!!!

Welchen Duft magst Du besonders und bei welcher Note rollen sich Dir die Fussnägel hoch?
Den Duft einer frisch geduschten Frau liebe ich und sie danach natürlich auch hehe
Leute die stinken, sich nicht pflegen und auch wenn man in Hundescheiße tritt ist auch sehr unangenehm oder wenn unser Basser pfurzt, hui das riecht nicht gut hehe

Ich weiß, es gehört mit Sicherheit nicht in ein Interview, aber kennst Du den Loveindikator für den PC?
Nein, schätze Du wirst mich aber gleich aufklären hahaha

Das ist so ´n Ding , da trägt man zwei Namen ein und der Computer errechnet die prozentuale Höhe der Chance das die Menschen die hinter den beiden Namen stecken zusammenkommen und eine harmonische Beziehung führen werden, oder so... Da wir natürlich keine Mühe scheuen hast Du hier und jetzt die Möglichkeit uns einen Namen zu nennen mit dem wir den Loveindikator neben dem Deinen füttern werden...
Ja, toll ich soll einen Namen sagen und wie sollen die Leser dann wissen was raus gekommen ist? Sehr schwer einen Namen zu sagen, da ich viele Frauen gut finde?!?! Ich sag mal Letitia Casta. Es gibt da auch ein paar Porno-Stars die nicht schlecht ausschauen, die Namen kenne ich aber nicht, wirklich!

So, es wird Zeit nach dieser kleinen Umleitung wieder den eigentlichen Pfad zu beschreiten! Mit DISINFECT spielt ihr ja zweifellos Death Metal und ich denke nichts falsches zu sagen, wenn ich Eure MuSick als „vom brutalen Ami-Sound beeinflußt" bezeichne, oder hast Du da Einwände?
Ne, das will ich doch hoffen! Um so schneller, tiefer und brutaler um so besser! Wir sind alle sehr im Death Metal verwurzelt und hören uns den Ami-Sound sehr gerne an. Aber auch Grind Core und gute Black Metal Sachen. Hoffe die neuen Sachen werden nur noch schneller und extremer!

Nenne uns doch mal drei Bands aus diesem Genre, denen Du Deine volle Sympathie zukommen läßt. Und ich bitte zu bedenken, daß ich drei gesagt habe und nicht 37 oder 843, also überlege gut...! Was macht denn jede einzelne dieser drei Kapellen so außergewöhnlich? Welches Gefühl und welche Werte sollte Death Metal Deiner Meinung nach vermitteln?
Auf jeden Fall CANNIBAL CORPSE. Sind für mich die Nr1. Besonders die alten Sachen mit dem guten Chris. Die Band ist brutal geblieben hat aber von Album zu Album technisch gut zugelegt! Jetzt wird es schwer, da ich sehr viel Bands geil finde. O.K. DEEDS OF FLESH sind die nächsten. Finde die Mucke ziemlich brutal und schön tief und schnell!! Die dritten sind DYING FETUS technisch 1A und derb. Aber es gibt noch DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, MORTICIAN, ILLDISPOSED, SINISTER, NILE, DYING FETUS, HATE ETERNAL.........
Das Gefühl kann ich nicht beschreiben, ein Glücksgefühl?!?! Death Metal soll doch keine Werte vermitteln oder doch? Zerstückle und vergewaltige Deine Nachbarin?!?!?! Ne, keine Werte.

Du hast mir mal erzählt , daß ihr vorhabt das „Depth of Winter-Festival" nach fast zwei jähriger (?) Pause im Herbst 2000 zum dritten Mal über die Bühne gehen zu lassen. Was kannst Du mir diesbezüglich über den Veranstaltungsort, den Zeitpunkt, den Zweck, etc. Erzählen????
Es wird am 21.Oktober2000 in Sindelfingen Juha Süd zelebriert. Wir haben vor es auf zwei Bühnen stattfinden zu lassen. Es wird ja noch einen netten Flyer in Deinem Mag geben. Der Zweck ist ein sehr nobler. Die gesamt Kohle wird für ein Hilfsprojekt nach Südamerika gespendet, d.h. die Bands bekommen Spritgeld aber auch nicht mehr. Wir hoffen das viele Leute kommen um etwas Spaß zu haben und gute Musik anzuhören.
Die Bands wären: CONVENT (Pol), DEATH`S BRIDE (B), DISINFECT (D), FALLEN YGGDRASIL (D), FLESHCRAWL (D); FLESHLESS (CZ), INHUMATE (F), KARKADAN (D), MISTRESS (D), NOIZ (D), PANDEMIA (CZ), REVENGE OF INSANITY (D), SACRIFICIUM (D), TEARS OF DECAY (D)

Sind alle Bands schon fest oder seid ihr noch auf der Suche...?
Es stehen eigentlich alle fest.
Und was kann man sonst noch von DISINFECT in den nächsten Wochen Monaten erwarten?
Auf jeden Fall eine CD mit viel brutalem Death Metal einiges an Konzerten und Festivals. Es sind auch Touren mit größeren, bekannten Bands geplant aber die bleiben noch geheim, man will ja nicht zu viel verraten und Neider gibt es eh zu viele, falls doch was nicht so klappen sollte! Eine Tour kann ich nennen die ist mit SINISTER und OBSCENITY und mit 2 support Bands DAWN und CHARON vom 1.5 - 6.5.

So, Chris! Denke das war’s von meiner Seite aus, hab nämlich das neue Jahr mit zuviel Wodka-O, S.C.-Kirsch und anderen Vitaminreichen Drinks begrüßt und deshalb furchtbar Sodbrennen. Und mit dem Tippen klappt´s heute auch nicht so optimal...Hoffe Du hattest ein wenig Spaß beim Beantworten. Ich bin mir auch sicher wir haben irgendwas vergessen zu erwähnen und dafür übergebe ich Dir jetzt das letzte Wort...
Vielen Dank für das nette und lustige Interview!! Wieder eine Chance mehr Unsinn zu schreiben haha
DEATH METAL IS NOT DEAD!!! Und wie immer SUPPORT THE UNDERGROUND!!!!

 
 
 
 
 EARSHOT
 

1.) Ich komme mir bei dieser Frage immer so unkreativ vor, aber sie muß sein... Also erzähl uns doch bitte etwas über den bisherigen Werdegang deiner Band.
Die Entstehung war 1999. Ich spielte damals in einer anderen Band OBSCURE, war mehr so die midtempo technischere Death Metal Schiene. Verglichen wurden wir mit den älteren DEATH, PESTILENCE, MORBID ANGEL. Das war mir alles zu langsam und ich wollte noch ein Nebenprojekt in´s Leben rufen in dem es gewaltig zur Sache gehen sollte. Dies wurde dann nach einer durchgezechten Nacht und einigen Gesprächen DISINFECT! Danach gab es einige Lien-Up Wechsel viele Konzerte, Festivals und eine Tour mit SINISTER und...... vieles mehr haha

2.) (genaue Formulierung der Frage kommt auf die Antwort der 1. Frage an...) Das derzeitige Line-Up ist ja erst seit 2000 fix. Warum kam es davor zu den verschiedenen Wechsel in der Besetzung?
Ja, meistens waren es Wohnortwechsel und wenn man 200 Km vom Proberaum wohnt hat man nicht so die Lust jede Woche zwei Mal zum Proben zu kommen. Das Andere waren auch musikalische Differenzen. Ich wollte auf jeden Fall in die Ami Death Richtung und nicht einfach nur Grind Core spielen. Es sollte noch eine gute Portion Technik und Rhythmus rein und das letzte Mal war es aus gesundlheitlichen Gründen das einer ausgeschieden ist. Seit 2000 nach dem OBSCENE Festival ist das Line-Up fix.

4.) Wer schreibt bei euch die Texte? Ich frage deshalb, weil da gibt es einige Stellen, die mir einen Megagrinser ins Gesicht knallen! Z.B. bei "Beinspender" - eurem Titletrack: Okay, das Bein des Soldaten ist weg und dann "all night long, you calculate - there's only one" RULEZ!!! ich stell mir den Typen vor "1...1...1...1 - verdammt, da stimmt doch was nicht! - 1...1..." ich finde das sowas von genial! Oder gleich danach "oh happy day, another mistake, your face is blown away" wieder der Soldat, von einem Krater zum nächten Hüpfend "Uuups, so ein Pech, jetzt ist das Gesicht auch noch weg..." einfach nur cool! Da gäbe es ja noch ein paar Stellen, aber es würde zu lange dauern alle aufzuzählen! Also erkläre mir: WIE kommt man auf so etwas:-) ?
HAHA Danke, das Lied auf das Du anspielst wurde noch von unserem alten Sänger geschrieben so wie One Night Steak und Darmmanifest. Er konnte wirklich sehr gut mit Wörtern umgehen und hatte super Einfälle! Bei uns geht es meistens um Sachen die wir um uns sehen und einen Schuß Ironie hinzufügen haha Die neueren Texte sind etwas anders von der Machart, da sie auch von unserem jetzigen Sänger meistens geschrieben wurden. Es sind auch Texte von dem anderen Gitarristen oder von mir dabei.

5.) Übrigens: Die Songtitel sind ebenfalls ein Hammer! (vielleicht gibts da was drüber zu erzählen???)
Ok am Besten der Reihe nach: Beinspender: Mienen und die Folgen danach, wenn man drauf getreten ist und noch stolpert und auf einer anderen mit dem Gesicht drauf landet haha One Night Steak: Das man eigentlich nichts anderes als ein Stück Fleisch bei One Night Stands ist. Nur etwas blutiger geschrieben. Darmmanifest: Unsere Elbogengesellschaft in der nur noch Geld zählt. After Killing: Hui ein Serienkiller treibt sein Unwesen. L2A5: Hier geht es um die Zerstörungskraft vom Panzer Leo. Inner Fear: Mein Song einziger Text auf der CD. Es geht um innere Ängste und Probleme. Grave New World: Unsere so hoch zivilisierte Rasse Mensch und wie sie mit der Erde umgeht. Menschenfeind: Sagt ja wohl alles haha Foxy Disintegration: Das Leben und den langsamen Zerfall des Körpers

6.) Welchen Stellenwert haben die Texte bei euch?
Hoch, sie sollten schon etwas aussagen und zur geshriebenen Musik passen und nicht nur dummes Beiwerk sein!

7.) Nun zu eurer CD. Seit ihr damit zufrieden, oder würdet ihr im Nachhinein etwas ändern?
HAHA fiese Frage. So etwas fragt man eine Band nicht, da muß sie ja auch Fehler zugeben haha Naja, es sind paar kleinere Fehler drinnen und eine Sache etwas zu schnell gespielt worden aber ansonsten ist die CD ziemlich fett ausgefallen! Hätte vielleicht noch ein Lied drauf sollen aber die liebe Zeit im Studio!! Dafür wird die nächste um so besser.

3.) Sind die Nummern der CD vor oder nach dem endgültigen Line-Up entstanden?
Die meisten Lieder davor. Menschenfeind habe ich dazwischen geschrieben und Inner Fear habe ich danach geschrieben! scheiß auf die Nummerierung... X.) Wie war das bisherige Feedback auf eure aktuelle CD? Mehr als gut!! Die Leute sind begeistert und bei den meisten Mags erreichen wir Höchstnoten erst gestern wieder 10 von 10 Punkten im MORDOR Mag. Also, deswegen können wir uns wirklich nicht beschweren und sind auch sehr glücklich das die CD so gut ankommt!!

8.) Wie und warum seid ihr eigentlich zum Exponent Studio gekommen und wie ist die Aufnahme verlaufen?
Durch den Roger von APOPHIS mit dem ich gelengentlich eine Gerstenkaltschale einwerfe haha Der hat uns das Teil ans Herz gelegt. Es ist sehr gut und vom Preis zahlbar. Bands Wie APOPHIS, HYPNOS, KRABATHOR... haben schon drinnen aufgenommen. Nur unser Sound ist schon etwas anders, da ich wußte wie die CD zu klingen hat und ich nicht den typischen EXPONENT Sound haben wollte!

9.) Photos, Graphik und Design (großes Kompliment an dieser Stelle!) gehen ja auf dein Konto. Ist das ein Hobby von dir oder Beruf? (haha ich glaub ich weiß was da kommt deshalb gleich die 10e frage: )

Ja, Danke! Freut mich zu hören das es Dir gefällt! Ja, es ist mein Beruf ich bin Fotograf und Grafiker.

10.) Welchen anderen Bands hast du schon ein Booklet designed? Kann man sich deine kreativen Ergüsse irgendwo im Netz ansehen?
Bis jetzt habe ich was mir so schnell einfällt OBSCURE, SACRALIS-Demo, HILARION (hier hatte ich Probleme mit meinem Packprogramm und Andere haben das Ding nachgebaut und jetzt stehen die Penner als alleinige drinnen!) gemacht, sind noch ein paar aber weiß gerade nicht wer noch haha. Habe aber wieder ein anderes Angebot bekommen! Wird noch nicht verraten! Ich mache auch natürlich Bilder, da sind es um einiges mehr Bands die ich fotografiert habe und natürlich entwerfe ich Flyer, Poster. Die auch erkennungswert haben und nicht 08/15 sind. Ein Beispiel ist das Poster für die SINISTER Tour das auch auf meiner Home-Page steht!

11.) Eure Homepage (da kommt ein Link her) ist ziemlich gelungen! Ist das ebenfalls dein Werk?
Hier auch noch mal Danke! Die Ideen sind alle von mir und sehr vieles habe ich auch selber gemacht aber das, das überhaupt entstehen konnte verdanke ich einem Freund dem Rainer, der beruflich Webpages zusammenbaut. Er mußte das Grundgerüst legen in dem ich mich dann austoben konnte. Es ist mein Ziel gewesen eine gute, schlichte dennoch nicht langweilige Page zu bauen die sich schnell aufbaut und übersichtlich bleibt!

12.) Wie seid ihr zu eurem Plattendeal gekommen? Warum habt ihr von Unterfett Rex zu Rest in Hell - Rec. gewechselt?
Mußten eigentlich nix machen und wurden sofort angesprochen als einige erfahren hatten das wir in´s Studio gehen wollen! Leider hat das erste Label nicht so viel getan, außer große Versprechungen gegeben!! Es war die logische Konsequenz das Label zu wechseln. Sind hier aber auch nicht besonders zufrieden!
Ihr mußtet euch also gar nicht lange auf die Suche nach einem Label begeben, sondern Ihr wurdet darauf angesprochen, oder wie kann ich mir das Vorstellen?
Ja, es kam einer auf uns zu und hat irgendwie rum gemacht und dann kam er shnell zur Sache und nach einer netten Nacht, die unser anderer Gitarrist mit ihm verbringen mußte hatten wir den Vetrag haha Ne, nicht ganz so aber fast, halt ohne die höchst erotische Nacht HAHA Das Dumme war nur das es die falsche Plattenfirma war die uns sehr viel Zeit gekostet hat! Die Zweiten waren aber auch gleich danach da und auch ohne was tun zu müßen haha

13.) Seid ihr verfechter des typischen Deathmetal Image? Also Splatter und Gore sowie Sex, Drugs&Rock'n'Roll?

Ja, warum nicht wer es will haha Machen auch alles was Spaß macht aber auch noch paar andere Dinge

14.) Gibt es in Ludwigsburg eine Bierbrauerei? Würde die dann Pleite machen, wenn ihr von DISINFECT plötzlich auf Welttour gehen würdet;-)?
Nicht nur eine! Zwei an der Zahl!! Eine davon würde ruck zuck unter gehen, wollen ja nicht übertreiben haha

15.) Wie siehts bei euch in Deutschland momentan mit der Deathmetal-Scene aus und wie wird sie sich entwickeln?
Ja, es wird langsam wieder! Es kommen immer mehr Leute zu Konzerten und ich hoffe das es endlich so weit ist das der Death Metal wieder populärer wird! Genug mit dem Proberaum Sound CD´s und gekreische von diesen Black Metal Burschen haha Obwohl es darunter auch gute Bands gibt!!

16.) Wenn man so oft spielt wie ihr, dann gibt es doch sicher einiges über Groupies zu erzählen:-)
Ja, erst vor paar Wochen, da haben wir so eine Kleine zu dritt hergenommen haha Ne, eigentlich nicht so sehr viel, da die meisten eine feste Freundin haben und zum Anderen wir nach den Konzerten immer dermasen besoffen sind, das da eh nix gehen würde haha Aber es gibt schon ab und zu Mädels die sich versuchen an einen ran zu schmeißen

17.) Was steht denn in näherer Zukunft auf dem DISINFECT-Terminkalender? Irgendwelche gröberen Gigs oder vielleicht sogar wieder eine Tour geplant?
Eine Tour wäre geplant gewesen!! Das Dumme ist unser Schlagzeuger bekommt keinen Urlaub und wir müßen die Tour verschieben. Es wird aber einige Wochenend Gigs geben um Mitteleuropa. Das Andere ist das DEPTH OF WINTER Festival das ich noch am 3 Novemeber veranstalte und noch mit VADER auf jeden Fall nächstes Jahr!

18.) Stichwort: World Trade Centre
Tja, wo gehobelt wird fallen auch Späne! Sorry, aber da sind die Amis selber schuld. Mischen sich überall ein und helfen dort wo es sich dann auch finanziell lohnt! Das einzig Dumme ist, das es Unschuldige getroffen hat! Ich bin aber kein Befürworter diese moslemischen Idioten! Hoffe das alle verrecken! Es ist traurig zu sehen das in unserer Zeit solche Dinge geschehen müßen!

19) Wann kommt die nächte CD und unter welchem Label
Die nächste CD ist für nächstes Jahr Ende Sommer geplant, Frühling geht´s in´s Studio und dann nach den Ferien ;ulraub gibt´s wieder was auf die Glocke haha Als neue Band sollte man ein Mal im Jahr was raus bringen damit die Leute einen niht vergessen! Ist wichtig und zweitens haben wir auch genug Material und wollen uns nicht auf unseren Lorbeeren geben. Das Label wissen wir noch nicht?!?! Mal sehen vielleicht bekommen wir einen guten Vertrag angeboten??

20.) Ich hasse sie, du sicher auch - gerade deshalb:-) :Die glorreichen Worte zum Schluß...
Auf jeden Fall vielen Dank für die Chance uns dem Österreichischen Publikum vor zu stellen (Ich weiß es, es lesen auch andere Leute aus anderen Ländern eure Page;-) ) und hört mehr Death Metal, sauft mehr Bier haha Ja und hört euch unsere CD an liebe Leserschaft und noch besser kauft sie!
Gruß Chris & DISINFECT
 


ETERNITY

Bitte ein paar Worte zur Bandgeschichte.
Die Band wurde 1999 gegründet. Eigentlich sollte es ein Sideprojekt werden, da ich zu dem Zeitpunkt schon seid Jahren bei OBSCURE spielte, das war mehr midtempo Death Metal in der Art von MORBID ANGEL und ich wollte das volle Brett aber meine Songs haben nie richtig reingepasst, deswegen mußte DISINFECT her!! Paar Wochen danach zerbrach OBSCURE und DISINFECT wurde zu meiner Hauptband. Es gab unzählige Mitgliederwechsel im ersten Jahr. Nach der SINISTER Tour waren sogar alle ausgestiegen, was kein Problem war, da ich für jedes Instrument bis zu 3 neue Leute hatte. OBSCENE Festival 2000 war dann die Wende und seid dem habe ich das vollkommene Line-Up das seid 2 Jahren steht und ich glaube bestehen wird, da wir richtige Freunde sind!

Eure Diskografie.
1999 Live. Das war unsere erste Sache damit wir schnell Promos verschicken konnten und der Sound war auch recht gut.
Beinspender. Unser erster Release mit den neuen Bandmitgliedern.

Wie seid Ihr auf den Bandnamen gekommen?
Etwas alt bekanntes. Ich nahm mein Wörterbuch schrieb einige Namen raus die cool klangen, danach wurde geschaut welche Bands es mit den Namen gab und aus den übrigen Namen wurde dann DISINFECT ausgesucht.

Wie sieht Eure eigene Stilbeschreibung aus?
Brutal Death Metal. Eigentlich nur DM aber da wir ja heutzutage tausende Schubladen brauchen fallen wir auch unter diese Rubrik. Manche schreiben Death/Grind aber den Grind eher wegen der Geschwindigkeit, da wir nur auf´s Gaspedal drücken. haha

Bitte ein paar Infos zum aktuellen Tonträger:
Die CD wurde Ende Dezember 2000 - Januar 2001 in der Slowakei im Exponent Studio aufgenommen. Bands wie HYPNOS, KRABATHOR, APOPHIS... nehmen da auf. Leider ist die CD etwas kurz ausgefallen. Der Grund war wie schon oben erwähnt, das neue Leute in der Band waren und es Zeit war eine CD rauszubringen und ich die Zeit davor damit verbracht habe ihnen die Lieder beizubringen und es keine Zeit gab neue Songs zu schreiben und etwas auf die Schnelle wollten wir nicht!!

Mit welchen Themen beschäftigt Ihr Euch in Euren Texten? Gibt es ein Textkonzept?
Alles von Krieg, Sex, Gore sogar Themen zu Natur oder Gefühlen gibt es auf der aktuellen CD! Wie gesagt, da wir alles nehmen das uns interessiert gibt es kein Konzept. Wir wollen uns nicht einengen lassen von irgendwelchen Vorgaben die wir uns machen. Wäre ja langweilig die millionste Band zu sein die mal wieder nur über Krieg, Gore schreibt, oder? Was wir auf jeden Fall nicht machen wollen die Leute mit pseudo Texten belehren!

Wovon lasst Ihr Euch beeinflussen? Welche Bands hört Ihr gerne?
Die Einflüsse sind überall um uns in uns. Geschehnisse in der Welt, kranke Phantasien...
Die absoluten Faves sind CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, CARCASS, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE(US), MORBID ANGEL, NILE, MORTICIAN, SKINLESS.... also mehr der Ami Death Metal

Wie sehen Eure Zukunftspläne aus?
Die neue CD im Herbst raus bringen. Einen coolen und fairen Deal bekommen. Wir hatten jetzt mehr als genug Angebote, da war aber kein wirklich guter dabei! Möglichst viel live spielen und vielleicht mal nach Amerika.

Warum sollen unsere Leser unbedingt Eure Scheibe kaufen?
Wenn sie auf kompromißlosen und ehrlichen Death Metal stehen der aus dem Herzen kommt und von Fans für Fans gemacht wurde sollten sie sich das Teil erst mal anhören und wenn es ihnen gefällt kaufen! Es gibt zwei MP3 auf unsere Page.
 
 
 

GATE OF HORROR

*Why did OBSCURE split up and how did you start DISINFECT?
The most importend thing for the split was, that some of the others didn´t want to play Death Metal anymore. I was much more into brutal Death Metal and decided to make a side projekt where I could put my ideas in and this was DISINFECT some weeks after OBSCURE split off!

*Tell us about your debut album ¨Beinspender¨, where did you record it, who was the producer, etc?
We recorded it in the EXPONENT Studio in Slowak Rep. the main reason was you´ll get a fuckin´ great sound for a cheap price. The producer was the band and me because I made the most songs of the CD and I knew how it should sound!

HEAVY METAL PIRATE ZINE

So, it’s sometimes hard to decide where to start. There are so many things I’d like to know about your band and band’s activities. But we can start with the point if its existence. Namely, I’d like to ask you how do you look at your position in the band and what Disinfect really presents for you? I mean, do you feel your music as a way of expressing your thoughts and attitude, or you just like to be involved in such an activities ‘cos it presents a great fun for you?
I´m one of the creators of DISINFECT and now the last one of them. The band is very importend to me because I love Death Metal and I allways want to play in a band especially when I can play the sort of music I like. I played in different bands before but it´s never like when you make everything on your own! Yes, the music is a way to express my self, thoughts and feelings. I can say it in a special way, through music and it´s great. The other thing is it makes a lot of fun to make music and to play and meet new people. You can´t make music without fun it´s in the same importend like the other things.

You describe your music as “fast and brutal Death Metal”. Let me ask you this: if we consider the term brutal as an ordinary term, we all know what does it mean. But if we consider it from the musical point of view, how could you explain or describe it? Or, why do you describe your music performance as brutal?
The meaning of this verb is like to say the music is heavy, extreme or hard or many other verbs.... It´s the way we play. Like I said it´s fast, deep and with many emotions. You should see our live performans and the emotions and feelings we put in. If you see us live you´ll think this guys kick ass and they love what they do!

Sociocritical thoughts. Yes, it’s quite correct description of themes Disinfect uses in the lyrics. Your lyrics are short and simple, but sharp as a razor. And you really have got the guts to tell things which people do not want to see, do not want to emphasize as a problem. Some things are presented on very metaphorical way what increases the deep-thinking meaning of it. Actually, in your opinion what should be changed in the global society first? Is there still a possibility to make our lives better and suitable for a decent human beings? It seems to me that psycho-social aspect influences your music a lot. Am I right?
Something importend we´re not a political band! We just say what we thing and this are different themes. Our lyrics are about the things that we see and think they are wrong or made wrong. Like the human race is only a short period on this earth and they made the world bleed only in some years. Other things´re like about the people how they live with each other, the only importend thing is money and the career. Or the social scum you see everyday like child-pornography, drug dealers or people they don´t want to work but they are healthy and young.
But we´ve some gore things, too. After killing is one of them it´s about a serialkiller.
I think there´re a lot of possibilitys to change things but money rules the world and it´s more importend then to make things better. The only way is if it´s profitable. Politians have to make something but there´re much more importend people behind them and they say how the game should be played! But everyone can do something and should never stop to say something against this stupidity that happens everyday!!
Some lyrics are metaphoric like you said and have to be read maybe more then ones to understand them. We have a lot of influences. Yes, and the psycho-social aspect like you see.

For so many years, I would even dare to say for decades, metal is a taboo theme, something what is in the minds of “ordinary” people imagined as evil and unacceptable. In your opinion why is it so? Maybe because of the paradox that many people are afraid of the things they do not understand?
Just look on the metal heads, you see some people wearing black clothes, long haired, looking evil (especially the black metal ones haha) drinking beer and smoking pot. That´s the reason haha
No, I think the reason is the whole media. Especially TV. They say this are evil kids, they are satanists, eating little children, taking drugs, no work and listen to very evil music. The most people thing it´s true because they don´t ask what´s behind this people. The most are funny, cool people. There´s a lot of difference between them like everywhere. There´re people they do wrong things but there´re a lot "normal" people doing the same! But it´s no more so hard to live this way like years before.

It seems to me that you pay a lot of attention on live gigs. In my opinion, that’s the best way of promotion and a good entertainment as well. But, as we all know from our own experiences, we cannot avoid the fact that something sometimes can go wrong. Have you got some really bad experiences connected with your live performances? Something as conflicts, organization problems, incident in the audience during your gig or anything of that kind.
No, we never had problems. Maybe some day haha but I hope not!!

Your web site is very attractive and very well designed, I must admit. If we consider Internet as a new kind of media, what do you think about it? In your opinion is it very useful way of promotion?
Thanx! Internet is a great way to promote your music or something other!! It´s a very importend invention. We made a lot of contacts, gigs and friends through this media. It´s much more easier and faster to write to people and show your music and band. When you go on a page you see everything importend about the band like the music, history, photos and a lot of other things. Or like now a interview.
The money you spare´s a other factor. The whole porto you don´t have to pay, that´s really a lot!!

Talking about live performance, I’d like to know this: do you feel as the part of the crowd? Dou you act as Disinfect and its fans are the kind of symbiosis?
Yes, it´s a symbiosis with the fans. When you see they like your music you feel great and put more energy in the music and the people see it the same, when the band makes a good show with good music they get more enthusiastic.You should never forget that you´re just a part of the whole. You´re nothing without fans and its hard to get fans if you act arrogant! There´re to many good bands and you shouldn´t make it this wrong way. Second I´m in the same way fan of other bands and therefore I knew both sides.

Questions about influences are very frequent, but at the same time, very interesting. Many of us want to know what “pushed” you to start that particular way of musical expression. So, I want to avoid standard and frequent questions and I’ll invert it this way: how do you look at the bands which influenced you – as a factor you can copy or as a factor you can use as a base to build up your own style using their experience as a “driving force”?
The beginning was in the age of 4-5 years when I listen my first AC/DC LP. Some years later I got my first guitar but I smashed it against the wall because I thought when you´ve a guitar you can play it but you´ve to practice first haha I knew it better when I was 13 and that´s the beginning of my music career.
No, I don´t want to copy someone!!! This is a dead end if you try this. But you can learn and take something out of the music that others do but never copy it! You´ve to stand on your own feed and make your own music some day.

What’s happening on the German scene nowadays? If I ask you to determine the Disinfect’s position on that scene, what can you tell me about that?
The German scene was a Black Metal scene before some years but now Death Metal is growing bigger and bigger and that´s great! The only big problem the people don´t want to go to concerts anymore. There´re to many concerst and that´s to much.
We´re just a part of the underground scene and it´s great to be there and to get the chance to proof our music. The other thing´s we´re a young band and not so long in this scene with DISINFECT. But we made a lot in this short time!

I’ve got the impression that there are really good relationships established among members of various metal bands in Germany and I think you can co-operate on the high level with many musicians. Is that so? Namely, here in Croatia a huge problem is obvious: bands hate each others, they envy to each other if someone is more successful and such a things. And I see it as a huge problem, ‘cos Croatian metal scene suffers a lot because of that bad attitude. It seems that many of those musicians, forgot the statement “United we stand”. What is your opinion about it?
Yes, we´ve a lot of good friends here in Germany and I hope there will be more! But not only Germany I´ve a lot of contacts to people worldwide and I met a lot of the bands personaly and sometimes we played with them. But we´ve the same problems with some bands they think they´re better or they get jealous when you have more success then they. That´s really stupid we´re all the same and want to make cool music and get fun. This´s no more fun if you think only about other musicians how good they´re or what they did or can do they should put the energy better in their own music and don´t waste the time with this bullshit.
I think the same only united we can stand!!

Do you feel you’re successful? Or maybe better to ask you this way: what is your vision of success and how is the status you’ve reached so far implemented in that “pattern”?
What´s the meaning of success?!? We made it the best we can do till now. We made a Tour with SINISTER and played on some festivals and a lot of gigs! We made a lot of knew contacts and friendships and that´s great!

Very often I can realize that there’s a strong hierarchy in many bands. How is Disinfect organized on that area? Is there a leader in the band who make all decisions or the band is a logical whole and works as a compact team?
haha If you want to say it like this, yes I´m the boss in this band. I made the whole thing started and I´m the member that´s the longest time in the band. I made
everything like the page, T-Shirts, stickers, the most of the music, concerts... and many more. But I´m not a dictator. Everybody knews this and it´s OK. It works great.

Sometimes we cannot influence on some events. But we can certainly expect something, hope for something to happen on particular way. We cannot be sure that we can lead the circumstances, but we can always try. That’s the main point, I think. To determine the goals and try to reach it. Chris, what do you expect, what the near future will bring to you and Disinfect?
There´re some labels interested in DISINFECT. Hope to get a good contract and play so many shows we can and to make a CD with some fuckin´ brutal Death Metal! We´re looking to make a European tour next year and we´ll come to Croatia!

Thank you very much for your time, support and good sense for co-operation. Cheers!Thanx for the interview and to get the chance that more people knews about DISINFECT!! Greetings to all (Death) Metal fans and especially the Croatian ones!!
Greetings Chris & DISINFECT

Markus Sailer Guitar

AS A HUMAN BEING

WHEN WERE YOU BORN ? (YEAR /MONTH ETC- TO CHECK YOUR ASCENDANT )
On 21st April 1980,at about half past two in the afternoon.
 
WHAT IS YOUR FAVE SONG WRITTEN BY YOURSELF ?
Hard to say.In fact, I like all songs I´ve written.Although for Disinfect these aren´t that many at the moment.I´ve no special song because I first use a riff in a song, when it sounds for me perfect and it can´t be developped anymore. So I´m satisfied with them and I must not later argue about myself, that I could have made the riff/song better.

DO YOU DO ANYTHING BESIDES BEING A MUSICIAN ?
No, just sitting the whole day on the street, playing Disinfect songs on the acoustic-guitar and begging for money, hahahaha….In fact, I´m going to a kind of medical school doing a lot of laboratory work.In the freetime we sit a lot together drinking beer, listening music and so on.The normal things you do all day long,….

PLS SHARE WITH US ( AND WE USE PAST TENSE AFTERWARDS ...) YOUR SECRET DESIRE !
Well,…,if you expect some perverted sexdream with a bunch of well-shaved, big-titted, sex-hungry, blackhaired girls, screaming for sex, I must disappoint you.Just one more in lifetime seeing Carcass(R.I.P) life on stage.Life would be complete………

IS THERE ANYONE WHO IS YOUR IDEAL ? CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHY ?
I don´t have somebody, I could call ideal or whatever. I think It´s much more important to find your own ideals in life instead of copying someone.Of course there are people whose way of thinking, guitarplaying, behaving or whatever is impressing, but it´s better to search and find your own way in life than to copy the one of someone other.

CAN YOU MENTION THE MOST IMPORTANT HUMAN VALUES THAT MEAN A LOT FOR YOU ?
friendship, honesty, fairness and fidelity
 
DO YOU DEAL WITH SPORTS OR ANY FUTHER TYPE OF ARTS ?
To be honest, I´m one of the laziest persons in the whole wide world,sports sucks, except watching it on TV, because never forget, sport ruins your health, hahaha. Concernig arts ,I think ,making music is also some kind of art.

ARE YOU SUPERSTITIOUS?
No, sorry in no

CAN YOU TELL US YOUR OPINION ABOUT RELIGION, PLEASE ?
I don´t like talking about this topic very much. A strong mind and a strong & expressing self-consciosness is enough to life this life without a god, what kind of name he ever may have or if he ever existed or exist,

ABOUT PIERCINGS AND TATTOES ?
Tattos:none. Perhaps later in a time when not all this bitchy trend sluts go,to have one too, because it´s very fashioned. My eyebrow is pierced so far

ARE THERE ANY HISTORICAL CHARACTER WHO YOU LIKE THE BEST , AND WHY DO YOU FEEL THIS WAY ?
In fact no one. As a German you still must be very careful saying something about history, hahahaha. My grandma was a very cool person, she´s dead now , so she´s historic, or not, haha

WHAT DOES THE WORD "FAME" MEAN TO YOU ?
Not really much.We make our music, because we´re all big fans of this kind and of course we like to play music.If someone likes the music we play, it´s great and a good feeling, but we don´t do it to become famous. We do it for ourselves. And honestly there aren´t that big possibilities to become famous with playing that kind of music. Better true to yourself than famous and selling your ass…………
 
 


KURAVILU

 

FUCKING FAST, DEEP AND BRUTAL

Disinfect is a brutal band of Death Metal that I have the chance to hear in CD compilations from main Metal magazines like Vampiria and Ancient Ceremonies. Trapped by their killer sound I felt the obligation to contact them and the best was to meet their guitar player Chris with the best disposition to send me their debut CD Beinspender and answer the questions in the following interview. Let's meet the band and go for their CD, a must for any Brutal Death Metal fan.
K: Hi Chris. How are you?

Chris: Hi Carlos, thanks I´m fine, everything is allright!.

K: Well, Disinfect is a know act mainly in Europe thanks to Beinspender but here in South America is not as known as should be. Can you start this interview telling us about the main facts in Disinfect history?.
Chris: DISINFECT was formed in 1999 as a side project. I played before in a other Death Metal band called OBSCURE but the music was to slow and I decided to start a new project but after a while OBSCURE split after 5 years and DISINFECT started to be my mainprojekt. We play brutal Death Metal in the vein of US bands. Fuckin´ fast, deep and brutal.

K: The reviews for Beinspender are very good. How you feel about that?.
Chris: Yeah it´s great to see that a lot people like our stuff! That´s a very good feeling, till now we didn´t get any bad review!.

K: Why you change from Rest in Hell Records to Diamond Records? What are the new plans in the new label? A new album on the way?.
Chris: REST IN HELL did nothing for our promotion, support and I had to do everything! Hope DIAMOND will do a better job but I think they will! Yeah a new album is planned for the end of 2003!! Expect a killer album.

K: I have read that your live act is brutal and intense. Tell us about Disinfect on stage. Do you play covers?
Chris: We´re a live band. Just like hell on stage. No we don´t play covers.

K: Which was the most important concert in Disinfect history?
Chris:There were many importend gigs. OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL was the first in the current line up. But the greatest was in France in the La Laiterie a big stage with crazy people but the extremest gig was in Croatia the fans went crazy and the bath in club was full of blood!!.

K: Who are your music heroes? What music are you hearing today?
Chris: Trey of MORBID ANGEL is a great guitar player!
CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL, NILE, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE(US), DYING FETUS, SINISTER...

K: What bands from the under scene of Germany do you recomend to us?
Chris: GALLERY OF DARKNESS, APOPHIS, OF TREES AND ORCHIDS, FALLEN YGGDRASIL.

K:What is your opinion of the "melodic death metal"?
Chris: I don´t like this childish melodies!.

K: Changing the subject I am very happy that Gemany ain't supporting that stupid war of Bush. Is good to know that most of the "biggest" countries are working for a better world and are against the "preventive war".
Chris: If war is needed then they should do it but not with reasons that no one can and should believe! The only reason was the oil, the control over this area and to help Israel!

K: May be almighty president Bush declare Gemany and all other countries (including Chile) that are against the war to be part of the "axis of evil"....
Chris: He´s a stupid man but if he think he can go on this way then he´s totally wrong! This countries are not stupid and if needed they´ll exist without USA.

K: Thanks for your time and please feel free to say anything else to our readers.

Chris: Thanx for the interview and support!!
All the people out there take a look at www.disinfect.de and listen to more extreme musick!!

 NEWS & ALTE HÜTE
ausgegraben, aufgewärmt & zusammengetragen von (M)
DISINFECT
... heißt ein neuer Stern am Death Metal-Himmel. Gegründet wurde diese Formation von keinem Geringeren als Christian Kilian (ex-Obscure). Ganz Nebenbei, per eMail erfuhr ich von dieser Kapelle ...
Hi Martin, wie geht’s wie steht’s? Wir haben endlich einen Namen für die Band!!!! Es ist DISINFECT!! Bis bald. Chris & DISINFECT

Hi Chris! Mir geht es gut, danke. Wie jetzt, DISINFECT? Habt Ihr Obscure umbenannt? Oder aufgelöst? Hast du Obscure verlassen und eine neue Band auf die Beine gestellt? Bitte klär mich mal auf. MFG, Martin
Hi Martin, tja Obscure haben sich vor 4 Monaten aufgelöst. Die anderen wollen keinen Death Metal mehr spielen. Sie wollen lieber eine Frau als Sängerin und einen Drumcomputer + einem normalen Schlagzeug und viel mehr Effekten auf den Gitarren. Das ist auf jeden Fall die Musik die ich niemals spielen würde! Deshalb habe ich DISINFECT mit ein paar anderen Leuten ins Leben gerufen. Es ist jetzt mehr Ami-Death Metal wie Cannibal Corpse, Deeds Of Flesh, Deicide ... also schneller und brutaler als vorher. Bis bald. Chris & DISINFECT

Hallöchen Chris! Soso, aufgelöst; und ich erfahr erst jetzt davon. War es schwer, die Leute für DISINFECT zusammenzutrommeln? MFG, Martin
Hi Martin, jaja so spielt das Leben und das nach 8 Jahren!! Ne die Leute waren schnell da, die meisten kennen mich und wissen, dass ich ein totaler Death Metal Freak bin und wenn ich was anfange, das es extrem wird! Die Musik ist schööööön schnell! Wir haben jetzt einen neuen Schlagzeuger und Sänger mal sehen ob wir es mit zwei Sängern probieren? Wäre cool einer der super tief singt und einer der extrem tief singt, haha. Muß Schluß machen, habe höllische Kopfschmerzen zu viel Gerstenkaltschale gestern:-)))))) Bis bald. Chris & DISINFECT

Moin Chris! Zuviel gesoffen also. Kommt vor, passiert mir auch manchmal, hehe. Wann kann man denn mit dem ersten Tonzeugnis von Euch rechnen? MFG, Martin
Hi Martin, ab und zu trinkt man eben etwas zu viel aber auch nur etwas hahaha. Mit der CD dauert es etwas da wir neue Leute in der Band haben. Der Schlagzeuger und der Sänger kommt diesen Do. das erste mal zur Probe. Sonntag habe ich auch gleich unseren neuen Sänger das erste Mal getroffen und das auch nur durch einen Zufall, da ich jemanden anderen kenne und er es wußte wer unser Sänger wird. Bye. Chris & DISINFECT

Tach Chris! Na hoffentlich wird das was mit deinen neuen Leuten! Hast du sie denn schon mal spielen gehört? MFG, Martin
Hi Martin, die neuen Leute kenne ich fast alle schon Jahre. Einer ist der Schenk von Carrion und der ist sehr gut! Obwohl er bei Carrion schlechte Musik macht. Ich meine damit die Musik-Richtung. Bis bald. Chris & DISINFECT

Mahlzeit Chris! Sieh an, der Schenk ist also auch mit von der Partie. Stimmt, der ist in der Tat ein hervorra-gender Bassist. Grüß ihn lieb von mir! Werdet Ihr auch ein paar Obscure–Songs übernehmen? MFG, Martin
Hi Martin, ja mit dem Schenk haben wir schon einen Gewinn gemacht! Obscure-Songs werden nicht übernommen, ist eben eine andere Band! Also bis dann. Chris & DISINFECT

Hi Chris! Vielen Dank für die Informationen. Ich wünsche Euch alles Gute - laßt mich was hören, wenn was aufgenommen ist! MFG, Martin

MASTERFUL MAG

DARK PAST STILL ALIVE American death metal is a term everybody knows. The music originally stinted merely to Florida's garages spread its wings upon whole world afterwards. The phenomenon of the most brutal and technical music ever head imposed on Germany as well. Still new bands show up in the scene, some of them are tedious, the others are worth checking out. DISINFECT appeared before me like a ghost from the dark past of good quality bands. Their debut album "Beinspender" is ready to be released by a decent label. Any of the interested ones do not hesitate and get in touch with them via disinfect@gmx.de, for it won't take long and DISINFECT will be on a roster of your competitors in the business. Nevertheless, formerly let's read what Chris - lead guitarist - said in this brief but interesting talk.

First off, what does "Beinspender" mean in English, for apart from few words German is a black magic to me?
"It's something like to play on words. This is a kind of joke. It's like to spend a leg and the song is about vermin."

How is this possible that you - hellish motherfuckers - originating from Germany play such excellent American death metal, huh? Shouldn't you play typical native to you power metal?
"Thanks and great that you like our music so much!! Ha, ha I don't think that the typical German music is Power Metal any more. Here in the south of Germany there're a lot of very good Death and Black Metal bands!! I think you know bands like FLESHCRAWL, OBSCENITY, ANASARCA... All German ones!"
 

I'm not confident, but is the album released via Rest In Hell? And what's the label? Never heard of them, frankly spoken.
"Yes, REST IN HELL Rec. released our CD. This is a very small and new label but we didn't sign a deal till now!! We'll take now a look at other labels what they want to do for us and then we'll see!"

The band was spawned not that long ago? Did you contribute to any other bands formerly?
"There were a lot of bands before! The last one was OBSCURE it was more a mid tempo Death Metal band in the vein of MORBID ANGEL, PESTILENCE, DEATH. This band was the reason to make DISINFECT because they don't want to change their style at that time and I wanted a much brutal band."

Presumably it's a bit odd that German band recorded its music in Slovakian or Czech studio. I know productions from Exponent and I think they are very good, but isn't it a bit extravaganza to register there for a band that in its own country has dozens of great studios ready to be entered with doors wide-opened?
"No, I don't think so, because you have to look at the prices here in Germany! You've to see the other costs like hotel, food and really a lot beer ha, ha. And when you go out every evening after recording it's much, much cheaper in Slovak Rep. then here in Germany and the other thing is they made a very good work!"

As I read you toured with Dutch gods (now gods and goddess) of Sinister. How was on the tour? And besides, do you think that female should be involved in such music, I mean in general?
"It was a very good and funny tour and very drunken one ha, ha. The guys are really cool like APOPHIS and I was one of the promoter of this tour! About girls in Death Metal. Ha, ha it's a very good question, because my ex-girlfriend plays in a complete female Death Metal band. I don't think this is the kind of music a girl should make. I can't take it seriously when a woman growls like a man!?! You know what I mean? That's too funny. They should do their groupie job ha, ha."

What track "L2 A5" deals with? Kinda strange.
"It's about a tank (Leopard) and it's power."

You were nominated as the best live band in... something? Elaborate on it a bit. Was that a big deal for you. And, what the hell do you do onstage then?
"We're always naked and make Hardcore sex on stage ha, ha No, I think what you can see it's the power and love for the music we play! It's from the first chord to the last one always live power!! When it's possible work with light especially green one because that's our band colour."

Isn't the new material anything you want to attract bigger labels in the future? I mean, you're worth to be grabbed by, no doubt!
"Thanks! Yes, for two weeks we've been sending some promo packages to try to get a really good deal!! The thing is the label we work now together is too small and they don't have enough money to promote us like they should do!"

Will you develop your, now rather typical American, style of playing into something more original? I'm not trying to find fault with it, but do you give a shit or not?
"HAHAHA NEVER!!!!!! The only thing is, that we'll play much more brutal and fast!!! Ha, ha DISINFECT is not a trendy band!!"

What to wish a band like DISINFECT? More groupies?
A good deal, some tours and festivals and the new CD next year!! Thanks Bart for the cool interview and greetings to the Polish (Death) Metal fans!!"
 



METALSTORM


Disinfect haben bei uns wie eine Granate eingeschlagen und ein Brett vorgelegt, bei dem man mehr als einmal trocken schlucken mußte. Also ergriffen wir die Gelegenheit, mit Chris per eMail ein Interview zu führen
geführt von (teq) in/per eMail

 
1. Zu Anfang klärt uns doch bitte mal über die History von Disinfect auf!
Zu den nächsten zwei Fragen kann nur ich gerade antworten, da ich das einzige Gründungsmitglied bin.
DISINFECT wurden 1999 gegründet. Die Band durchlebte unzählige Wechsel bis ich die passenden Leute fand. Die Gründe waren von Studieren oder Arbeit in zu entfernten Städten bis zu musikalischen Differenzen! Bis jetzt waren 3 Gitarristen, 3 Schlagzeuger, 3 Bassisten und 4 Sänger in der Band haha Ich glaube das ist einiges um ein paar Bands daraus zu machen!! Aber es dauert bis alles so läuft wie es sein muß!
Mitte 2000 nach der SINISTER-Tour, wurde das letzte und perfekte Line-Up gefunden. Das beste an der Tour war das ich eigentlich danach als Einziger übrig blieb und das die Hälfte der Musiker nur Aushilfsmusiker waren! Das Problem war eine Verfälschung der Musik insbesondere der Vocals!
Seit Juni 2001 ist unsere CD Beinspender nun raus und ich hoffe das die CD vielen Death Metal Fans zusagen wird und die wahren DISINFECT nun zum vorschein treten!! Fuckin´ brutal Death Metal eben!
 
1B. Und wie sieht das derzeitige Line-Up denn nun aus?
Chris (meine Wenigkeit haha) Lead Guitar
Markus Rhythm Guitar
Jochen Vocals
Tomasz Drums
Jochen Bass
Sind 5 Leute auch, wenn auch zwei den gleichen Namen besitzen und man denken könnte einer macht beides haha
 
2. Ihr habt euch dem recht kompromisslosen Deathmetal verschrieben. Wie seid ihr zu dieser Musik gekommen?
Das Ziel war auf jeden Fall von Anfang an kompromißlosen, brachialen und extremen Death Metal zu machen! Was anderes käme für mich nicht in Frage!
Ich höre mir privat zu 90% nur Death Metal geknüppel an der Rest ist Black Metal und Grind Core haha Die Band sollte ein Ventil für mich werden, da ich noch damals bei OBSCURE spielte und wir etwas langsameren technischeren Death Metal spielten der mich aber nicht ganz erfüllte. 2 Monate nach DISINFECT löste sich OBSCURE auf. Somit hatte ich nur noch eine Hauptband in die ich meine ganze Energie stecken konnte und ich glaube es hat sich
gelohnt!
Die Neuen haben mit den Songs auf der jetzigen CD noch nichts im
kompositorischen zu tun. Ich kann aber versprechen das die neuen Sachen auf jeden fall wieder extrem werden und dieses Mal auf jeden Fall durch Einbezug der neuen Leute in der Band!
 
2b. Fürchtest Du nicht, in eine Sackgasse zu geraten, wenn ihr euch"lediglich" auf schnelles Geknüppel beschränken wollt? Bleibt da nicht die Abwechslung auf der Strecke und Live würde die eine oder andere Verschnaufpause auch nicht so schlecht sein!
HAHA NEIN!! Das Ziel ist es nicht nur schnell zu sein sondern auch heftig und brutal! Es wird weiterhin schnelles Geknüppel bleiben auch die neuen Songs aber dieses Mal auch um einiges technischer und es gibt langsame und verdammt brutale Passagen!! Es wird sehr Abwechslungsreich werden das neue Zeug!
Live?!?! Wir gehören noch lange nicht zum alten Eisen das wir
Verschnaufpausen bräuchten haha Bei uns geht es schon mit dem ersten Riff gleich los und das wird bis zum Ende beibehalten!! Außer die Fans bräuchten eine? ;-)
 
2c. Noch seid ihr kein altes Eisen, aber ihr werdet auch nicht jünger. Ich persönlich finde es halt meistens langweilig, wenn alles nur Geknüppel ist. Aber meine Chancen auf eine Disinfect-Liebesballade sind damit dann wohl gestorben?
Jünger nicht aber besser, wie ein guter Wein! Es ist ja auch nicht so bei uns das nur von vorn bis hinten Geknüppelt wird. Es gibt Breaks, coole Rhythmen oder sogar Melodien. Also doch nicht ganz so langweilig. Mit der Liebesballade wird es wohl nix haha Aber es gibt sicher ein paar andere Bands die das ganz gut hin bekommen.
 
3. Leider liegen mir keine Lyrics vor. Allerdings lassen eure Songtitel tief blicken. Gib uns doch mal einen Überblick, worum sich eure Lyrics drehen.
Ich kann einiges zu den Liedern erzählen. Werde mich auch möglichst kurz fassen!!
Beinspender, geht um die Heimtücke von Mienen und um einen Soldaten der Bekanntschaft mit einer macht.haha
One Night Steak, der Mensch als Stück Fleisch in one night stands.
Darmmanifest, handelt um unsere Ellbogengesellschaft und um das liebe Geld.
After Killing, ein Serienkiller geht um und zerstückelt Frauen haha
L2A5, ist ein Panzer (Leopard) und im Song geht´s um die Zerstörungskraft von dem Teil und nun weiß auch endlich jeder was die Abkürzung bedeutet.
Inner Fear, ist mein persönlicher Song und es geht um Ängste die einen zerfressen können, wenn man nicht dagegen ankämpft.
Grave New World, der Mensch und die Umwelt, wie es aussieht ist es wie mit Feuer und Wasser.
Menschenfeind, sagt ja wohl alles!!
Foxy Disintegration, der Zerfall des Menschen als Wesen aber dennoch nicht das Ende.
 
3b. Welches davon ist denn dein lyrisches Lieblingsstück und warum?
Inner Fear, da ich es selber geschrieben habe. Foxy ist aber auch ein super Stück!
 
3c. Generell scheint ihr ein Faible für den Krieg und Kriegswaffen zu haben. Woher kommt dieses Interesse?
Liegt wohl daran das wir Menschen sind und es liegt uns im Blut. Es ist einfach interessant wie sich die Menscheit selbst zerstört und was es da alles für tolle Sachen gibt haha Kriege gibt es immer sogar vor kurzem hier in Europa als die Serben mal wieder dachten sie müßten Krieg führen und friedliche Völker angegriffen haben, wie die Slowenen und Kroaten. Jetzt geht es ja auch mit den Albanern wieder weiter die in Mazedonien Unruhe stiften! Also wie man sieht kommt es nicht von ganz so fern das man sich für solche Dinge interessiert, wenn sie andauernd passieren.
 
4. Sind euch die Lyrics wichtig oder nur "nettes" Beiwerk zur Musik?
Ja, auf eine Art und Weise schon. Es sollen keine dummen, nichts sagen Texte sein aber auch keine belehrenden!! Wir wollen uns den Frust von der Seele und die Probleme die wir oder die um uns sind aufschreiben. Meistens aber mit einer großen Portion Ironie haha Sie sollten also nie zu ernst genommen werden.
Gute Musik und nichts sagende Texte sind nicht unser Ding! Warum so viel Mühe in die Musik stecken und dann wenn es um die Gedanken, Gefühle oder auch Intellekt geht, nichts bringen?!?! Man muß ein gesundes Gleichgewicht in der Musik zwischen Beidem finden. Ich persönliche lese auch immer die Texte um zu sehen um was es überhaupt bei der Band geht!
 
4b. Werden denn im Boocklet die Texte abgedruckt sein?
Ja, logisch! Die Leute sollen auch sehen über was wir singen.
Wie gesagt ich finde es auch interessant bei anderen Bands!
 
4c. Keine Angst davor, aufgrund eurer Texte boxkottiert zuwerden? Solche Texte sind bei gewissen Volksvertretern nicht wirklich beliebt!
Ne, da gibt´s wirklich noch keine Angst. Wir sind ja wirklich noch Underground und glaub nicht das sich da jetzt noch jemand dafür interessiert. Vielleicht wenn wir mal genug Geld damit machen und sich die Finzkasse dafür interessiert haha Wer von diesen Volksvertretern liest die den wirklich mal richtig durch?!?!
 
5. Deathmetal war mal vor Jahren wesentlich angesagter, als er es momentan ist. Glaubt ihr, das auch wieder fettere Zeiten kommen werden oder sollte der Deathmetal im Underground verweilen?
Death Metal wird langsam wieder größer! Ich hoffe es doch. Man sieht es in Magazinen, auf Konzerten und im Verkauf!! Vor ein paar Jahren kamen kaum Leute zu Gigs mitlerweile sind sie auf jeden Fall bessser besucht als Black Metal Konzerte! (spreche gerade vom Underground bei uns) Death Metal wird nie wirklich groß, da die Musik zu extrem ist um ein breites Publikum anzusprechen! Aber falls es doch passieren sollte, was soll´s ist doch gut.
Zum Underground. Metal ist doch eh Underground egal mit was man es vergleicht Pop, Rap (Kacke), Techno oder auch sogar Volksmusik!
 
5b. Und wo glaubt ihr werdet ihr dann stehen. Mit anderen Worten, was glaubt ihr könnt ihr mit Disinfect erreichen?
Hoffe weit oben! Würde ja lügen, wenn ich was anderes sagen würde! Aber Hauptsache wir können spielen und Leute kommen weiterhin zu unseren Konzerten und haben Spaß an der Musik und Show!! Ich stecke sehr viel Zeit meines Lebens in die Band und mache alles um die Band weiter vorran zu bringen und Leute die mich kennen wissen das ich auch manchmal übertreiben kann. Die Band, Musik ist eben sehr wichtig für mich, uns!
 

6. Wie sehen eure Zukunftspläne aus?
Live spielen, spielen und noch mals spielen!! Wir wollen so viel wie möglich neue Leute zum extremen Death Metal bringen haha Eine Tour ist für Herbst eingeplant!
Hoffe Ende diesen oder Anfang nächsten Jahres wieder in´s Studio gehen zu können um das neue Werk einzuprügeln!!
 
6b. Das ist sehr schnell. Existieren schon neue Songs oder werden die spontan im Studio eingezimmert?
Es gibt schon 3 neue Songs! SCREAMS OF PLEASURE, NORDIC THUNDER und CASCET BORN. Das Nächste ist auch schon in der Mache!
Im Studio kurz mal ein paar Lieder zu machen, davon halte ich sehr wenig und auch als fast unmöglich außer man ist ein halbes Jahr drinnen haha Das wäre aber aus rein Budget-technischen Gründen für uns nicht möglich. Das Material und die Texte müßen schon vor dem Studio fertig stehen. Kleinigkeiten kann man immer noch im Studio umändern, verbessern aber mehr auch nicht! Wenn es so spontan und locker gehen würde hätten wir auch schon die nächste
am Start:-)

6c. Die berühmt berüchtigten letzten Worte an die Herrscharen von Fans da draussen in der Welt?
Auf jeden Fall erst Mal vielen Dank Ralf für die Chance hier bei euch ein Interview führen zu dürfen und unsere Musik, Gedanken an die Leute draußen bringen zu können!! Und ihr da draußen hört mehr Death Metal an!! ;-) Und wir machen keine Balladen!

Gruß Chris & DISINFECT
 


MINCEMASTER


1. The changes in the line-up have affected the band to find your style and for the composition of new songs or you as founding already has it defined?
We had the stile before the changes, when I made this band it was clear we´ll play only brutal Death Metal the only thing is new people new ideas and new inputs for the band! The most songs where made before the change and most of them are made of me! DISINFECT will allways be a fuckin´ brutal DM band!

2. Many bands change their musical style, recording sweepings and shit and to this calls progress, What do you think must make a band for not to fall so low? Do you think that with the passage of time a band must change members, sound, studio ......
This´s not a progress it´s just false I think it´s harder to make new songs in the same vein as totally different music on the next CD. Hope you understand what I mean. When you say you´ll play fast and extreme, you´ve to think more about to make this kind of music but not simillar like the songs on the last output but in the same vein. It´s easy to make a CD fast the second slow the third Black Metal the fourth Industrial and so on!!
I don´t thing that it´s important to change the members I think that´s wrong and the band and music has to stop till the new people are into the band!! But sometimes the studio should be changed to see new sounds, technic more new inputs for the band.....but not to much haha

3. When you first started playing / What kind of cover songs did you guys start out playing?
When I was 12 years but my first guitar was with 6 years but I smashed the guitar against the wall because I thought when you have a guitar you can play haha but this was wrong. The first covers where from AC/DC, KISS and in my reherseal with my teacher. Inthe other bands we played everything hard but I never played a lot covers I thing it´s better to play your own songs.

4. Why you like more the american death metal bands sound, Disinfect sound is as them?
I like the perfect and heavy sound it´s not like the raw Swedish sound before years. I think it´s more perfect. Like some people prefer the Norwegian Black Metal sound. That´s really bullshit sound it´s like in a rehearsal room. For this sound you don´t have to go to a studio and pay a lot of money it´s better to take a tape deck in the rehearsal room and then it´s cheaper haha But there are some good BM bands like MARDUK, EMPEROR, DARK THRONE, DARK FUNERAL, CRADLE OF FILTH but I prefe bands linke CANNIBAL CORPSE; DEICIDE, DEEDS OF FLESH, CARCASS, NILE, MORBID ANGEL, LIVIDITY, MONSTROSITY, SKINLESS, SINISTER, MORTICIAN............. and a ton more haha

5. Tell us about the productions of Disinfect?
We went to EXPONENT STUDIO in Slowak Republic because Roger of APOPHIS said that we´ll get there a good sound for a good price! Bands like KRABATHOR, HYPNOS, APOPHIS.. made their CD´s there. It was a good and drunken time there haha Don´t drink to much Absinth and the beer prices are fuckin´great! We made all music, lyrics before the studio and therefore we could spend time and put the money to make the sound better and I think it´s now very good!

6. Have you been approached by any record labels? / Had you problems with previous label?
Yes, the first was Unterfett Rex it was the biggest mistake we could make we lost a lot of important time and that sucks!! They toled to much and gave to much promisses and we new they couldn´t do it therefore we had to change it! The CD should be normally out 4 month before!!! FUCK THIS POEPLE!!
Our new label is called Rest in Hell Records.

7. What about of Sinister tour? How you got the contact ?
I met the guys years before in Czech Republic on a gig and we had a cool and drunken night after some time in the beginning of 2000 a promoter wants to make a tour with us and a bigger band and I said I knew this guys a little bit and I could ask them. After that we made this (alcoholical) tour with SINISTER and APOPHIS. We had a really great time and a lot to lough!! Jägermeister rules!!

8. How is the German thrash metal scene today ? What happen with bands as Destruction, Kreator, Sodom.?
I´ve to say I´m not to much in Thrash Metal but it´s really growing!! There is a tour planed with SODOM, KREATOR and DESTRUCTION! I think a killer package for every Thrash Metal maniac.

9. Who this interesting in Disinfect for a concert with that must speak and whatever must pay?
If someone wants to make something with DISINFECT just write to my address or send a mail to disinfect@gmx.de and then we can talk about the conditions! Normally 400,- 600,-DM + food+drinks (I mean a lot of beer) and a sleeping place. It depends how far it is!

10. Some words for the readers and for the that you hate...
Thanx a lot for your support!! That´s great to see that there a lot of brutal maniacs out there!
Support your local Death Metal scene and a big fuck to all false people!!
Stay brutal Chris & DISINFECT
 


MORBIDNOIZZ

First off, what does "Beinspender" mean in English, for apart from a few words German is a black magic to me?
It´s something like to play on words. This is a kind of joke. It´s like to spend a leg and the song is about warmines.

How is this possible that you – hellish motherfuckers – originating from Germany play such excellent American death metal, huh? Shouldn’t you play typical native to you power metal?
Thanks and great that you like our music so much!! haha I don´t think that the typical German music is Power Metal any more. Here in the south of Germany there´re a lot of very good Death and Black Metal bands!! I think you know bands like FLESHCRAWL, OBSCENITY, ANASARCA... All German ones!

I’m not confident, but is the album released via Rest In Hell? And what’s the label? Never heard of them, frankly spoken.
Yes, REST IN HELL Rec released our CD.
This is a very small and new label but we didn´t sign a deal till now!! We´ll take now a look at other labels what they want to do for us and then we´ll see!

The band was spawned not that long ago? Did you contribute to any other bands formerly?
There were a lot of bands before! The last one was OBSCURE it was more a mid tempo Death Metal band in the vein of MORBID ANGEL, PESTILENCE, DEATH. This band was the reason to make DISINFECT because they don´t want to change their stile at that time and I wanted a much brutal band.

Presumably it’s a bit odd that German band recorded its music in Czech’s studio. I know productions from Exponent and I think they are very good, but isn’t it a bit extravaganza to register there for a band that in its own country has dozens of great studios ready to be entered with doors wide-opened?
No, I don´t think so because you have to look at the prices here in Germany! You ´ve to see the other costs like hotel, food and really a lot beer haha And when you go out every evening after recording it´s much, much cheaper in Slovak Rep. then here in Germany and the other thing is they made a very good work!!

As I read you toured with Dutch gods (now gods and goddess () of Sinister. How was on the tour? And besides, do you think that female should be involved in such music, I mean in general?
It was a very good and funny tour and very drunken one haha The guys are really cool like APOPHIS and I was one of the promoter of this tour!
About girls in Death Metal. Haha its a very good question because my ex-girlfriend she plays in a all female Death Metal band. I don´t think this is the kind of music a girl should make I can´t take it serious when a woman growls like a man!?! You know what I mean? That´s to funny. They should do their groupie job haha

What track "L2 A5" deals with? Kinda strange.
It´s about a tank (Leopard) and it´s power

You was nominated as the best live band in… something? Elaborate on it a bit. Was that a big deal for you. And, what the hell do you do onstage then?
We´re allways naked and make Hardcore sex on stage haha No, I think what you can see it´s the power and love for the music we play! It´s from the first chord to the last one allways live power!! When it´s possible work with light especially green one because that´s our band color.

Isn’t the new material anything you want to attract bigger labels in the future? I mean, you’re worth to be grabbed by, no doubt!
Thanks! Yes since two weeks we´re sending some promo packages away to try to get a really good deal!! The thing is the label we work now together is to small and they don´t have enough money to promote us like they should do!

Will you develop your, now rather typical American, style of playing into something more original? I’m not trying to find fault with it, but do you give a shit or not?
HAHAHA NEVER!!!!!! The only thing is, that we´ll play much more brutal and fast!!! haha DISINFECT is not a trendy band!!

What to wish a band like DISINFECT? More groupies?
A good deal, some tours and festivals and the new CD next year!!
Thanks Bart for the cool interview and greetings to the Polish (Death) Metal fans!!
 


MORBID TALES MAG

1. hello guys! how are the things going on for you and your band?could you start by presenting us a little bit the history of Disinfect?
Hi Raul! Till now very good! We´ll play some festivals and some tours with some cool bands! The band started in 1999 as a sideprojekt for me because at this time I had a other band called OBSCURE but it was more slower technical Death Metal. Some weeks after OBSCURE split off and DISINFECT was my main band the music is more straight and extreme brutal Death Metal. We had a lot of changes in the band but since middle of 2000 our line up is complete!

2. what could you tell us about your releases ?give me a few technical details about each one?
Our first release was a live CD it was the first demo we had, the reason was that we had something to show other people. Our second release is our CD called "Beinspender" it was recorded in the EXPONENT Studios in Slovakia were bands like KRABATHOR, HYPNOS, APOPHIS and many othert bands recorded their stuff! The sound is fuckin´ brutal, heavy!!

3.try to introduce your last album and each track of it.
Here´re the tracks and the meaning of each one.
Beinspender: It´s about a soldier and war mines.
One Night Steak: One night stands. One part is allways only a piece of flesh that satisfy somebodys sexually fantasy
Darmmanifest: Our society and the only god is money
After Killing: A serialkiller is doing his job
L 2 A 5: About a tank and the power of it
Inner Fear: it´s a personally song about fears and that you´ve fight against them
Grave New World: The human race and how we handle it with our nature.
Menschenfeind: Misanthropist.
Foxy Disintegration: Death and the hope that there´s something after this what we call life..

4.how do you see this album compareing it with your others creations?
Like I said we had only the live one and I think you can´t really compare them. Second on this CD "Beinspender" all members are new!!

5.what your lyrics deal with ?
Everything what you want haha We don´t have any special concept! If we want to make a lyric about something we make it! The most lyrics are about war, sex, violence, society...

6.could you presenting us the death and grind scene from your city and country?
We´ve a really big scene here!! I think one of the biggest in Germany! Especially my city and the area around here! But not only Death Grind also a lot of Black Metal and normal kinds of Metal. I think Germany has a very good Metal scene but extreme scene could be bigger haha

7. how do you see the present scene of death grind from europe and around the world?
It´s fuckin´ growing and that´s great to see!! There´re a lot of very good new bands out there!! The other thing is the labels see the trend and they want to make money like years before with Death Metal and after that with Black Metal! The problem is they´ll destroy the scene with their politic "the only law is money"!!

8.i supose that you played a lot of gigs in your country .which were the most important gigs that you ever had and which are the bands that you played with? how does a Disinfect show looks like?
Yes, we played a lot in Germany but not only here we played in a lot parts of Europe!! Some cool gigs were in the La Laiterie in Strasbourg, it was a very good festival and the DEPTH OF WINTER Festival (I´m the organizer of it!) We played with a lot of different bands!!! Some of them are SINISTER, FLESHCRAWL, DISASTROUS MURMUR....... and tons more haha
The show is full of energy from the first chord to the last one!! Only pure brutal Death Metal!!!

9.well ,your band are signed with a label. are you satisfied with their work?
No, I have to do allways the most work and the contact is to bad between us!! The funny thing is they´re from our area!! Hope to get a better deal or hope they´ll do a better job!!

10. how do specialised media from your country and foreign countries ,received your products?
Very good!! We got in a lot of countries the max of points in the reviews for example!! Now we had a lot of calls, mails from other countries to make the distro in their countries and we´ll work with the people together!!

11.in your career you've been influenced by some bands or any particular school of death&grind metal ?
Yes, sure there´re a lot of good bands like CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE...... I prefer the US Death Metal stile.

12.guys what represent Disinfect for you ?
The most importend thing in our life!

13.do you plan some tours to promote your new album? or some other planes ?
Yes, we´ll do some smaller tours only 3-5 days tours because of the work! Second our new release should come in autumn!!

14.well that would be all for now. thanks for your time . do you have something to add to conclude this interview?or something to say to romanian readers ?
Raul thanks a lot for the cool interview and the chance to be heard in Romania!!! Take a look at www.disinfect.de !! Thanks and stay brutal Chris & DISINFECT
 



MORDOR-MAGAZINE

Erzähl mal kurz, etwas von der Gründung und der Geschichte der Band.
Die Band wurde 1999 gegründet. Die damaligen Ur-Mitglieder waren nur kurz in der Band es gab sehr viel Umbestzungen. Einige waren beruflich bedingt andere musikalisch.Erst Mitte 2000 wurde das heutige Lineup vervollständigt und dauert bis heute an.

Was für eine Bedeutung hat Euer Bandname?
Er klingt cool haha

Wie würdet Ihr Eure Musik beschreiben?
brutal Death Metal, eben extreme Musik!!

Wer schreibt die Texte und um von was handeln sie?
Einige der Texte sind noch vom alten Sänger, einer von mir und die restlichen von neuen am Mikro. Die nächsten Texte werden auch etwas unter uns verteilt werden.

Ich bin selbständiger Fotograf und Grafiker. Die anderen studieren einer Medizin,

Ich würde Euch nun bitten, mal kurz zur momentanen Situation im Metal (speziell im Black/Death Metal) Stellung zu beziehen.
Die etwas härteren Bands sind wieder auf dem Vormarsch und es wird sicher wieder eine anwachsende Death Metal Szene geben!

Was für eine Bedeutung hat der Satanismus für Euch?
Ich lese gerne Dinge darüber aber das war´s auch.

Vor nicht allzu langer Zeit gab es wieder einen fall von Grabschändungen. Wie stehet Ihr zu dieser Sache? Was haben solche Taten, eurer Meinung nach, für Auswirkungen auf die Szene?
Ziemlicher Blödsinn, weiß nicht was das bringen soll!?! Auf die Szene hat es nur negative Auswirkungen. Die Leute die solche Sachen anstellen gehören aber auch meistens in keine richtige Szene rein und versuchen durch solche Aktionen etwas Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zu lenken.

Wie sieht es bei Euch für die Zukunft aus?
Bis jetzt sehr gut und ich hoffe es wird noch besser!

Plattenvertrag?
Ja, bis jetzt noch bei REST IN HELL RECORDS mal schauen, wie es weiter geht, da wir uns bis jetzt auch noch nirgendwo anders umgehört haben! Aber mal sehen was andere Labels so bieten. Warten wir´s ab!

Neue CD?
Die neue CD ist doch erst raus! Nächstes Jahr im Herbst gibt´s die nächste Granate voll auf die Ohren!!

Konzerte?
Ja, haben jetzt im Moment sehr viele auch einiges an Festivals. Kann aber ruhig mehr werden haha

Welches war euer bestes Konzert?
In der La Laiterie in Strasburg war super und auf dem DEPTH OF WINTER Festival letztes und dieses Jahr!

Wenn ihr die Möglichkeit hättet, auf allen Festivals der Welt zu spielen, auf welchem würdet ihr am liebsten spielen ?
Milwaukee, wäre cool aber auch das FUCK THE COMMERCE wäre nicht schlecht!

Was für ein Lebensstill habt Ihr? Sex, Drogen und Metal? Oder habt Ihr andere Lebens Grundsätze?
Ja, Sex, Metal und Alkohol. Gehört ja alles zusammen und am besten möglichst viel von Allem haha

Was bedeutet der Tod für Euch, was kommt danach. Oder ist danach alles vorbei?
Ich hoffe schon das danach noch etwas kommt, wäre schon etwas traurig, wenn dies alles wäre.

Und zum Schluss noch ein paar spassige Sachen!
Äussert Euch bitte zum Wort Gott!
?? Weiß nicht wo er lebt, noch nie gesehen

Was haltet Ihr von Kreuzigung?
War doch mal schwer in Mode oder? Ist aber mittlerweile verboten, da es doch etwas zu sehr weh getan hat

Welches ist das beste Bier?
Becks, Paulaner, Erdinger, Weihenstephan und dann auch noch Vodka, Whisky, Bacardi.....

Eure Meinung zu MTV und (oder) Viva!
Scheiß auf diesen Müll! Leider gibt es nicht mehr HEADBANGERS BALLROOM, METALLA, VIRUS..

Und nun, die letzte Zeilen gehören euch und ihr dürft hier unzensiert sagen, was ihr schon immer den Lesern sagen wolltet !
Tja, ..?? Auf jeden Fall Danke für das Interview und die Chance uns dem Publikum auf Deiner Page etwas vorzustellen!! Weiter so und auch Dir viel Glück!!
 
 
 

NECROMANCEMAG

First start this off with a brief history of the band. When did you guys start playing, who were the original members, etc...
The reason to create DISINFECT was my first band OBSCURE because it was more midtempo Death Metal but I wanted a much more extremer band and therfore I created DISINFECT some weeks after that OBSCURE split off!!
The band started in 1999 The music was the same in the beginning of DISINFECT extreme Death Metal but total different people to the new one in the band. After some weeks we had to look for a new vocalist because our first one had to leave the city because of a new job in a city 200 km far away from our rehearsal room. We had really a lot of changes in the band! The most reasons were work and two had to go into other citys to far away!
 
Tell us the most important aspects on "Beinspender"..
The most importend is that we play brutal Death Metal and that you´ll hear it when you listen to the CD! It´s music made by fans of extreme sounds for fans of extreme sounds!
 
Can you give us some information about "Beinspender"?, for example, what can you tell me about the recording process and How much time did you spend in the studio writing this album?
We took 2 weeks in the Exponent studio (bands like KRABATHOR, HYPNOS, APOPHIS recorded there) in Slowak Republic to record our CD. The music was made before the studio, we had only to go there and to make the best we could at this point! It was really funny, drunken time there because alcohol is really cheap there haha Dont drink to much Absinth that´s really fuckin´ hard stuff!
 
How did you guys get a chance to work with Rest In Hell Records? Are you all happy with the deal?
First UNTERFETT.Rex wanted to work but this was a big asshole then we changed to REST IN HELL RECORDS but we have some other offers but we´ll see how R.I.H. will cooperate with us. The biggest reason for this label is that they´re from here some citys away and we can see what they do and get easy in contact! Like I said maybe if we´ll get a really fair and good contract we´ll take it! But till now everything goes right.

Had you been contacted by any other labels before deciding on Rest In Hell? If so, who and why not go with them?
Like I said before UNTERFETT.Rex but we don´t want to work with this asshole!!! There happend to much things with this guy and he is away since 4 month and no one knows where he´s. He made really a lot of shit haha
 
What do the songs on "Beinspender" talk about?
I think I´ll say something to evry song because it´s different! They´re made by three different people! Our old vocalist, the new one and me!
Beinspender: It´s about a soldier and war mines.
One Night Steak: One night stands when you really look about this. One part is only a piece of flesh that satisfy somebodys sexually fantasy
Darmmanifest: Our society and the only god is money
After Killing: A serialkiller is doing his job. haha
L 2 A 5: About the German tank called Leopard and his power
Inner Fear: About fears that can destroy you if you don´t fight against them!
Grave New World: The human race and how we handle it with our nature.
Menschenfeind: Misanthropist. it was the perfect song for this title!
Foxy Disintegration: Death and the hope that there´s something after this what we call life..
 
How've the reactions been so far to "Beinspender"?
Till now very, very good!!! We had only good reviews and sold a lot CD´still now. The people love the music and we can see it when we play.
 
What are in general the main influences of DISINFECT from your point of view? I think you remind me a bit to IMMOLATION and INCANTATION, do you agreee with me? When you write songs what do you hope to create?
HAHA Sorry but I never listen to this two bands!! That´s funny because in a other review someone said the same! I bought a CD of IMMOLATION to listen to them after that. That´s really cool that people say this because this are really very good bands!! I´ll allways hope that the next song I´ll make would be the best one. I think we can´t create really something new but maybe a little bit different to other bands and maybe better
 
Are you planning a tour at all to promote this cd? Do you guys get a chance to play out alot? Any fests planned?
The tour was planned for autumn but we couldn´t do it because our drummer is doing a new job and he dont get hollidays!! Hope we can do it after New Year! Yes, we played now on the DEPTH OF WINTER FESTIVAL, next week on the EAR TERROR and the day after on the MONASTIC DOOM Festival. We´ll play some bigger festivals next year!! But first when we´ll knew it 100% I´ll talk about it!!
 
Thanks for answering the questions... close this however you like!
Thanks for the interview and the chance to show a lot of people that DISINFECT is here!!
 

 

NEMESIS

Ist es richtig, dass ein Großteil von Disinfect auch bei The Exorial spielt?
Ja

Wie kommt es, dass ihr euch die Musiker teilt?
Vor anderthalb Jahren brauchte ich neue Musiker für das OBSCENE Festival, da wir da die Zusage hatten und ich nur noch alleine die Band führte. Es wurden schnell neue Leute gefunden unter anderem eben 2 Jungs von EXORIAL die eigentlich nur als Aushilfe gedacht waren, da wir uns aber super verstanden hatten und ihnen die Musik sehr gut gefallen hat sind sie auch gleich in der Band geblieben.

Hat euer armer Sänger Kehlkopfkrebs oder weshalb muss er so tief röcheln?
Weiß auch nicht ob er überhaupt einen Kehlkopf hat?! Schätze das liegt am Alter, er ist gerade 12 geworden und kommt in den Stimmbruch haha

Was unterscheidet euch von anderen Death-Metal-Bands?
Tja, das müßte ich Dich fragen. Kann nur sagen das wir alle Death Metal Fans sind und auch versuchen Musik für Death Metal Fans zu schreiben. Das Andere ist das wir auch 100% dahinter stehen was wir verbrechen.

Wieso habt ihr ausgerechnet diese Form des Death Metals für euch auserkoren?
Das war der Grund die Band entstehen zu lassen, es war mich von Anfang an klar das wir nur heftigen Ami Death Metal spielen werden. Vor DISINFECT habe ich bei OBSCURE gespielt und da war es mehr der Midtempo Death Metal von dem ich weg wollte. Privat hör ich mir auch nur heftigen Death Metal an besonders das Zeug aus Amerika

Was würdest du sagen sind derzeit die hoffnungsvollsten Bands in der Szene um Stuttgart
?? Hui, ich gehe schon seit langem nicht mehr so oft auf Konzerte. Meistens spielen wir die selber haha Aber es gibt gute Bands hier im Umkreis LUNA FIELD, FALLEN YGGDRASIL, MUCUPURULENT, APOPHIS, FLESHCRAWL.

Es gibt Musiker, die euch ein recht arrogantes Gehabe nachsagen. Neid, Hass ...
HAHAHA jaja, sehr schön. Würde nur zu gerne wissen wer den Schotter erzählt! Man kann vieles sagen aber das wirklich nicht. Kann sein das wir sehr oft super besoffen sind bei den Gigs und manche unseren Humor wohl nicht ganz mit uns teilen aber sonst? Wegen was Neid? Wir sind nur eine Band die nicht so einen Status hat das man da darauf neidisch sein müßte.

Die Vorsilbe "Dis" in eurem Bandnamen erinnert an alte Hardcorebands. Wie kam es zu der Namenswahl?
Naja, daher kommt das sicher nicht her. Der Name klang damals cool und deswegen haben wir uns für den entschieden. Zu den Bands noch dies DISGORGE, DISMEMBER, DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, DISSECTION... Naja, also lag das bei uns sicher nicht am Hard Core.

Wo liegt für euch der Sinn solch brutaler Musik, dem Gegröle, den besoffenen Fans und der Gewaltverherrlichung. Wäre es nicht sinnvoller auf Blumenwiesen spazieren zu gehen ... ?
Der Sinn ist die Liebe zur Musik! Leider gibt es nicht mehr zu viele idilische Blumenwiesen. Naja, nicht die besoffenen Fans sind der Grund, da saufen wir doch lieber selber haha

Was entgegnest du auf die Bemerkung, dass Death-Metal-Bands ihre Instrumente nicht beherrschen (das lernte ich vor zehn Jahren noch in der Schule)
Naja, da hast Du aber seit sehr langer Zeit nicht mehr so viel mit bekommen haha Wie wäre es mit MORBID ANGEL, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS, CRYPTOPSY, ATHEIST, CYNIC glaube nicht das Schulbands das so einfach spielen könnten. Das Niveau hat sich gewaltig gesteigert. Am Anfang dieser Musik konnte man dies behaupten! Schätze das war bei den meisten Musikrichtungen so bis die Leute die Musik immer mehr verbessert und verfeinert haben! Es waren auch meistens junge Leute damals.

Was du schon immer sagen wolltest ...
Vielen Dank für das Interview! Hoffe einige Leute haben dies gelesen und sind nicht mehr neidisch oder voller Haß gegen uns haha
 


SUPPORT THE UNDERGROUND

Wie seid Ihr zum Death Metal gekommen und wie habt Ihr in der Band zueinander gefunden?
Ich höre DM seit dem es die Musikrichtung gibt und kann nicht genug davon bekommen! Es war eh klar das DISINFECT nur extremen Death Metal spielen wird und das war auch das Ziel die Band überhaupt entstehen zu lassen!
Die Band hatte sehr viele Wechsel zu verkraften, die uns auch super zurück geworfen haben. Seit letztem Jahr ist das Line-Up komplett. Der Grund dafür war das ich nach der SINISTER-Tour alleine dastand und neue Leute für das OBSCENE Festival brauchte, es hat nicht lange gedauert und ich hatte einen neue Mannschaft an Bord die bis jetzt zusammengehalten hat! Und hoffe auch weiter Bestand haben wird!!

Hattet Ihr vor Disinfect noch andere Bands/Projekte?
Ja, einiges an Bands. Ich spielte davor bei OBSCURE, kurz bei HILARION und meiner ersten Band PROPHECY.
Einige haben immer noch Nebenprojekte am Start in denen sie ihre anderen Ideen ausleben können.

Haben Euch andere Bands inspiriert, bzw. beeinflusst? Welche und wie?
Inspiriert hat uns der ganze Ami-DM. CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DYING FETUS, NILE, DISGORGE (US)... um einige zu nennen
Beeinflußt sicher auch auf eine Art und Weise. Das müssen die Leute entscheiden die unsere Musik anhören, wie stark die Einflüsse sind. Ich hoffe nicht das wir ein Klon einer Band sind, da dies sicher nicht unser Ziel ist!

Wie wichtig sind für Euch Eure Texte und von was handeln sie?
Texte sind wichtig für uns. Sie sollte eine Aussage haben auch, wenn sie manchmal bei uns etwas ironisch oder sarkastisch ausfallen.
Es geht bei uns um persönliche Probleme, Ängste die wir Erlebt haben, um die Welt um uns herum oder einfach um Krieg,

Wie stellt Ihr Euch Eure musikalische Zukunft vor?
Auf jeden Fall nächstes Jahr die nächste CD raus bringen, da jetzt auch die neuen Jungs was dazu beigetragen haben. Viele Konzerte und Festivals mitnehmen neue Erfahrungen machen. In vielen verschiedenen Ländern spielen!
Das wir einen super fairen Deal mit einem coolen Label bekommen, das uns etwas mehr vorran bringt.

Welches war bisher Euer bestes Konzert?
Letztes Jahr in der La Laiterie in Straßburg auf dem GRIND YOUR SOUL FESTIVAL und die letzten zwei DEPTH OF WINTER FESTIVALS. Waren super Festivals mit sehr vielen Leuten und einer super Stimmung!!

Wo und mit wem würdet Ihr gern mal wieder spielen?
La Laiterie wäre cool. Mit allen Bands mit denen wir bis jetzt gespielt haben wäre super haha Die waren wirklich fast alle sehr locker drauf! Es gab da schon ein paar Ausnahmen aber im großen und ganzen wären alle Bands super haha Das wo ist schon etwas besser zB: Wacken, Fuck the Commerce, Milwaukee und noch paar mehr. Aber auch auf jedem anderen Festival und coolen Konzert!!
 
Ihr veranstaltet ja selber Festivals und Konzerte, was habt Ihr für Erfahrungen gemacht?
Ja, sagen wir mal so ich mache das Meiste davon haha Ja, das DEPTH OF WINTER habe ich die letzten zwei Jahre gemacht. Im Vorfeld sehr viel Streß aber wenn dann alles super läuft die Leute Spaß haben die Bands gut mitmachen und natürlich das Geld eingespielt wurde ist es ein super Gefühl! Bis jetzt habe ich nur positive Erfahrungen gemacht.

Aus welcher Gegend kommt Ihr?
Raum Ludwigsburg / Stuttgart aus dem schönen Schwabenländle

Gibt es in Eurer Gegend eine kultige Metal Kneipe, Disco, Club, Juha, etc.?
Ja, logisch die Rock Fabrik Ludwigsburg aber die hat auch schon sehr stark nachgelassen.

Eure letzten Worte?:?
Vielen Dank für das Interview und die Chance unsere Gedanken einem breiterem Publikum zu präsentieren!! Hört euch unsere CD "Beinspender" an!!
 



THE GRIMOIRE

 
1. Your "beinspender" album was the best album I received in the past few months. Did you ever hear of the band "Casket"? They sent me an album called "Under The Surface" and it was as savory as yours. The only problem is that there is already a band called "Casket" that has released some unbearably homosexual albums, and I think they gave the good Casket a bad name. Have you ever heard of the band I am talking about?
Yeah, good to hear that and thanks a lot that you like our stuff! I heard the name CASKET but never listen to them.

2. Have any labels picked up the album, or is it strictly an independent release?
We had two small labels till now. First was UNTERFETT.Rex and now we signed with REST IN HELL REORDS from our area here in the south.

3. Germany is a strange country in which death metal fans also seem to like glam. Are you such a metalhead?
What do you mean with glam? If you mean when we go out and people came to us and say hey we knew you and you make good music let´s drink some beers then it´s ok and I think nothing wrong but if you mean "hey we´re somthing better then you" then NO! We´re just Death Metal fans playing in a Death Metal band and trying to do the best!

4. Germany also seems to have an erection for unmanly vocals and simplistic music, like Hammerfall and all other kinds of bands that have escaped the queerbashing that lies in store for them if they ever set foot in America. Why does Germany adore such faggy bands?
HAHAHA No I don´t think that normal metalheads listened to this kind of gay shit Metal!! Second I don´t know people they like shit like this haha

5. It surprises me that something so brutal comes out of there. You must be from east Germany, correct?
No, we´re from South Germany Ludwigsburg / Stuttgart. Here´s a big Death Metal and Black Metal scene. I think one of the biggest and best in Germany

6. Hey, if you ever see the singer of Atrocity, would you be so kind as to shove a garbage can up his ass? Tell him I want to personally break his nose for making that once-great band so absolutely gay.
HAHA Yes, that´s true what you said but they split before some weeks!! But I can tell him what you said haha

7. For the sake of the English-speaking readers, would you translate some of your German titles? I want to be sure that I am not supporting any homosexual bands.
No we´re not a homosexual band are you homosexual? haha It´s hard to translate the words because it´s playing with words what we made. I´ll try it! Beinspender means spending a leg. If you read the lyric you´ll see it´s about warmines. Darmmanifest it´s like gutmanifest it´s about our society and the only thing in live is money. Menschenfeind means misanthropist and I think you know what´s the meaning of this.

8. Ok, what is the meaning of "Foxy Disintegration?"
You´re born and then everything goes fast and you´re getting very fast old and when you die there´s something left, maybe? I don´t mean your dead body haha but maybe a soul? It´s about the stupidity of live and it´s a short time you spend here on earth and the hope that there´s something after this!

9. Does your band play live? Could you please prove your manhood and wear swastikas?
Yes, sure we play a lot live! We´ll play in November on three Death Metal festivals and a lot of smaller gigs. Hey, we´re real men, we allways wear swastikas on stage haha No just a joke!

10. I don't usually delve into politics, 10. I don't usually delve into politics, but there is something very strange about Germany. In the history of the world, when one force overcomes another, the spoils of war go to the victor. I am unsuccessfully trying to understand why jews are trying to get money back from Germany. I mean, that was a war! I thought it was a joke when I first heard it. If this is the way of the new world, then I would like the catholic church to begin reversing some of its robberies too. What do you think, Hitler?
Haha Sorry but I´m not Hitler. I think WW 2 is over and that´s about 56 years!! No one of this people live any more and if yes then only some hundred! No one of the new generations did something or had something to do with this war. If the jews want some money then they should go to school, study and work and then they´ll get money! Like you said with the church and I knew two really sick and fuckin´ dangerous guys! Asterix and Obelix they killed some thousand Romans and no one said they should pay for this! haha

11. Sorry to take advantage of your German blood, but I need just a few more favors. Do you know what happened to the singer from Bethlehem's "Dictius Te Necare" album? Also, are Deathrow's earlier albums released on CD in Germany yet?
No I never listen to Betlehem and second don´t know it, too.

12. Scandinavians used their pride as a marketing tool for some really bad music. Do you think that such a scheme would work for German bands?
You mean like sick, extreme Wotan brutallity from Germania? haha No it´s harder for Death/Black Metal bands from Germany to make it this way like the Scandinavians did. But the rest of this shitty Heavy Metal bands they made it this way like Metal from Germany. Scorpions, Pretty Maids or bands like this.

13. What is the racial situation like in Germany? I heard that whites are a minority over there. I am sure that Hitler would be very happy to see that.
No, but sometimes you can believe this haha There´re a lot of problems with Turks here. I don´t think that Hitler would be very happy about this. Haha

14. Is your family part of Hitler's bloodline?
My ancestor are from Austria and I think my grandpa had the initial A.H. haha

15. Would you like to dispel the myth that European women are hairy?
They do not have bushy armpits or forestral pubic hair. No, the German girls are not hairy. I never had a girlfirend with bushy armpits or a hairy cunt. Don´t want a monkey in my bed haha

16. Does your mother have a mustache?
HMMM I think no? haha Your mom?

17. If I were to visit Germany, exatly how long would it take for mee to get my ass kicked?
I think you´ll get the ass kicked in the plane before you came here hahaha
 

 

TWILIGHT-MAGAZIN

1. Was könnt ihr mit zu eurem Entstehung der Band?
a) Was hat euch motiviert Musik zu machen? Der Metal an sich!
Damals waren es vielleicht noch andere Bands, die sich im Laufe der Zeit geändert haben aber es war der Metal und die Drogen, Alkohol und die Frauen haha
b) Aus welchen musikalischen Lagern kommen eure einzelnen Bandmitglieder?
Jetzt im Moment kommen wir alle aus dem Death Metal!!
c) Was ist bis heute so bei euch geschehen?
2 CD´s eine Live die neue im Studio und sehr viel Konzerte, Festivals und paar Touren und natürlich ein Plattenvertrag.

2. Welches sind eure grössten Einflüsse?
Der Ami Death Metal wie CANNIBAL COPRSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE, MORTICIAN, DYING FETUS...

3. Wie würdet ihr eure Musik selbst beschreiben und kategorisieren?
Extremer, schneller und brutaler Ami Death Metal. So wie wir in den meisten Mags beschrieben werden oder Death/Grind
b) Und was haltet ihr von Kategorisierung bzw. Schubladendenken bezüglich Musikstilen
Es ist wichtig bis zu einem Punkt aber es müßen nicht erst zwei Seiten Musikbeschreibung auftauchen bevor es wirklich um die Band geht!

4. Wie ensteht bei euch das Songwriting und wie läuft eine Recording Session bei euch ab?
Entweder schreibe ich die Songs erst zu Hause und zeige sie dann im Proberaum wie sie sein sollen oder ich bringe ein paar Riffs mit und der andere Gitarrist steuret welche bei und dann wird gearbeitet haha Aber auch der zweite Gitarrero bringt was mit!

5. Welche Bedeutung mißt Ihr dem Sound bzw. der Produktion generell bei? Denkt Ihr beispielsweise, dass gute Songs auch mit einem durchschnittlichen Sound funktionieren können?
Der Sound und die Produktion müßen stimmen. Es gibt alte Kultbands mit geilen Songs aber scheiß Sound und dann denkt man schön öfters, wenn Du jetzt die Platte mit einem richtig fettem Sound anhören würdest, wäre sie schon um einiges besser! Wie gesagt gut Songs mit gutem Sound sind schon besser haha

6. Wie sieht es mit Live-Gigs aus?
Ja, sehr gut haben schon einige Bretter in Schutt und Asche gelegt und das Europaweit!!

7. Was steckt hinter eurem Bandnamen? Wieso habt ihr diesen gewählt und was bedeutet er für euch? Er klingt gut und der Schriftzug passt zu der Bedeutung!
Gewählt haben wir ihn deswegen, weil ich mal die coolsten Namen genommen habe die mir eingefallen sind und wir danach geschaut haben welche Bands es schon mit dem Namen gibt aber ich muß sagen das DISINFECT schon unser Favourit war!!

8. Was erhofft ihr euch bandtechnisch für die Zukunft? Wann ist mit neuem Material zu rechnen?
Auf jeden Fall mehr Konzerte, einen besseren Deal mit einer Plattenfirma die unser Potenzial zu schätzen weiß und das neue Zeug kommt nächstes Jahr im Sommer/Herbst raus! Auf jeden Fall wieder sehr heftig!!

9. Wie steht ihr generell der Metal-Szene gegenüber?
Hui, was für eine Szene?!?! haha Es gab so etwas mal wie eine Szene, so wie jede Szene haha Ist ok hoffe sie wird wieder etwas größer!

10. Abschliessende Worte an unsere Leserschaft?
Auf jeden Fall bedanken wir uns für das Interview!! Und Leute hört mal in unsere CD rein und wenn sie euch gefällt "kaufen"!! Gruß Chris & DISINFECT
 



VATES-NOCTIS

1. Beschreib doch mal den Werdegang von Disinfect

DISINFECT wurden 1999 gegründet. Damals spielte ich noch in einer anderen Death Metal Band namens OBSCURE. Die Musik war eher Midtempo Death Metal und meine Vorschläge die Musik schneller und extremer zu machen wurden nicht so sehr beachtet haha Deswegen wurde DISINFECT mit ein paar anderen Leuten die dies auch machen wollten gegründet. Paar Wochen danach löste sich OBSCURE auf und ich widmete mich ganz DISINFECT zu. Seid Beginn haben einige Wechsel in der Band statt gefunden. Der Extremste war nach SINISTER, da stand ich dann ganz alleine da. Was nicht so schlimm war, da wir einen sehr guten Ruf hatten und ich praktisch für jedes Instrument bis zu 2-3 neue Leute zur Auswahl hatte!! Seit Mitte 2000 sind wir vollständig und hoffe es wird auch so bleiben!

2. Wovon handeln eure Lyrics?
Das ist wirklich unterschiedlich von Gore, Krieg, Haß und persönlichen Erfahrungen und Geschehnissen die um uns passieren. Hier mal kurz was zu jedem Lied:
Beinspender, geht um die Heimtücke von Mienen und um einen Soldaten der Bekanntschaft mit einer macht.
One Night Steak, der Mensch als Stück Fleisch in one night stands.
Darmmanifest, handelt um unsere Ellbogengesellschaft und um das liebe Geld.
After Killing, ein Serienkiller geht um
L2A5, ist ein Panzer und seine Zerstörungskraft
Inner Fear, es geht um Ängste die einen zerfressen können, wenn man nicht dagegen ankämpft.
Grave New World, der Mensch und die Umwelt
Menschenfeind, sagt ja wohl alles!
Foxy Disintegration, der Zerfall des Menschen als Wesen aber dennoch nicht das Ende.

3. Ihr seit ja sehr von Americanischem Death Metal beeinflusst, was sind demzufolge eure Einflüsse oder Idole?
Einflüße und Idole? Naja, Idole habe ich keine und ich hoffe das man die Einflüße nicht zu sehr raus hört, da wir ja doch eigenständig bleiben wollen. Aber Lieblingsbands gibt´s einige! CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, MORBID ANGEL, DISGORGE, DEEDS OF FLESH, DYING FETUS, NILE, BRUTAL TRUTH, SINISTER

4. Ihr wahrt ja mit Sinister und Apophis auf Tour, erzähl doch mal ein wenig von den Eindrücken und Erfahrungen die ihr gewinnen konntet!
HAHA Eindrücke Hmmm Tja wie viel kann man saufen und das jeden Tag ohne von der Bühne zu fallen haha Es war auf jeden Fall eine super coole Tour. Bei der ich ja der Mitveranstalter war. Auf jeden Fall habe ich in APOPHIS Freunde für Leben gefunden und treffe mich noch mit dem Roger so 2 Mal die Woche.

5. Ihr seit jetzt bei Rest in Hell Records unter der Haube. Was dürfen wir also in Zukunft von euch erwarten?
Hoffe doch noch sehr viel und bessere Promotion, da ich bis jetzt immer noch das Meiste mache und auch gerne hätte das die Plattenfirma mehr macht!! Wir schauen uns aber jetzt mal etwas um, da wir denken das wir die Zeit nicht so ungenützt verstreichen lassen können. Wir wollen nächstes Jahr auf jeden Fall noch einige größere Festivals spielen und wenn es geht auch mehr Touren. Das Andere was noch kommt ist die neue CD aber erst so mitte Sommer, Herbst.

6. Wie siehst du das Problem das Metal im TV nahezu ignoriert wird?
Ziemlich zum kotzen. Dieses ganze Nu-Metal Gewichse geht mir ziemlich gegen den Strich. Besonders so Penner wie Limp Bizkit und Konsorten. Das Zeug wird den Leuten als Metal verkauft hat aber eigentlich nichts damit zu tun. Die Idioten sehen erstens eher aus wie irgendwelche Ghetto Rapper und Zweitens wo ist der Metal?! Leider ist Metal nicht so populär und man kann mit der Musik nicht so viel Geld machen wie mit solchen Kaspern.

7: Was hältst du davon das www.metal2tv.de sich dafür einsetzt dass wieder mehr Metal gezeigt wird?
Ja, das ist wirklich mal eine sehr gute Idee!! Einer muß ja endlich damit anfangen das die Leute sich etwas mehr einsetzen den Metal wieder in´s Fernsehen zu bringen!

8. Hast du noch Abschlussworte?
Vielen Dank für das Interview! Leute geht mal auf www.disinfect.de drauf und hört euch mal unser Zeug an und wenn´s euch gefällt bestellt auch gleich mal eine CD. haha
 



VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE

1) What made you become a metal fan? Do you remember your first record and your first concert? Which? Do you still like your old Metal records? Are you rather a CD or a vinyl freak? Which band "introduced" you to extreme Metal?
Haha my first record was on tape and I was ca.5 years old it was a sampler of AC/DC my cousin gave me. My first LP was KISS with 9 or 10 years. Had to save the money a long time before I could by this LP haha My first gig, there were a lot smaller Underground gigs but the first big one was TANKARD. I like more CD´s it´s easier with them especially when you can put 6 in your player haha I searched allways something extremer first AC/DC, KISS, MOTÖRHEAD, CELTIC FROST, METALLICA, SLAYER then NAPALM DEATH, SOD.........now CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE, DEEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE, MORBID ANGEL, NILE........

2) What made you grab an instrument? Did you play an instrument before you wanted to play Metal, for example the piano?
My first guitar was with 6 years after the AC/DC tape haha But I was to young and to stupid and it took 7 more years till I really begun to play. No, it was only the guitar.

3) DISINFECT was founded in 1999. How did you find the other guys? Did you release anything before "Beinspender", maybe with a different band?
The band had a lot of big changes, the biggest was after the SINISTER tour I was the only member in the band but it was not so bad some days after I could select who should play in the band because I had about 2-3 new people for every instrument! The line-up was complete in the middle of 2000, till now! Before DISINFECT there were a lot of bands the last was OBSCURE it was in the way of old MORBID ANGEL, PESTILENCE or DEATH. Have allways 5 tapes! If someone wants a tape it´s just 7,-DM

4) I think you mentioned you're in the graphics business - did you create your logo yourself? It looks quite good and yet it's readable! Do you make logos for other bands as well?
No, the logo was created by Christoph Szpajdel. He made logos for bands like EMPEROR, MOONSPELL, OLD MAN`S CHILD.... I´m a fotograf and graphik I made a lot of booklets, pic of bands! If a band, label or mag is interested just write a mail!

5) You are with Rest In Hell Records right now. Are you looking for bigger labels or are you satisfied with their work?
Yes, sure. We didn´t do it first but we send now promos away since two weeks. We need much more promotion in mags some big festivals... the problem is our label is to small to do things like this and you they need much more financial power to do it!

6) You already played tons of gigs and even a tour with SINISTER and APOPHIS and you are known as a good live band. So what led to the bad situation at EAR TERROR Festival in November 2001? And what made you decide you're gonna bring that gig to an end? The next day NECOLOGY gave up...
There was nothing to hear on the stage!!!! Only a broken trigger second we came only some minutes before our gig and it was really a long distance to drive 850km and that in winter and if you only sit in the car and then you had to go on stage and play and then you´ve a sound like this on stage!! We had to play till the end the people paid the money to see us and we don´t want to disapoint someone! Hope we´ll get a second chance to show them what DISINFECT really means on stage!!

7) Would you like to be the opening act for a big festival tour like the NO MERCY or the X-Mas tours? There are so many bands on one evening - do you think it would help your band? Being a Metal fan, do you attend such shows yourself?
?!?! This is a really good question!! It´s good because a lot of peeople can see you (maybe) but as the first band in this kind of big festival-tours it could be you can´t play because of the time or you have to play at a really early time and not to many poeple will see you. I don´t know but I think if someone will ask we´ll say yes haha
I don´t like it to much there are to many bands for one day.

8) What do you think about writing songs, recording them and playing live?
Everything is great. The period till the new song is made or when you record it is very creative and it´s allways great to see how the people react on your new songs. Live playing is the most importend thing and the best thing to show the power of your music!!

9) Who writes the DISINFECT songs? How do you do it? Do you develop them at the rehearsal room with everybody jamming or do you rather sit down on you own?
The most songs are made by my self. Normally I sit at home and play. The best riffs are taken then and after we sit at the rehearsal and try to make something great sometimes a other member had a good idea to put it in the song. But the other guitarist is more and more involved into the music of DISINFECT.

10) How important are the lyrics for DISINFECT? I think you're using German lyrics for some songs, right? Why? Who is responsible for DISINFECT lyrics anyway?
Lyrics are very importend! We don´t want to make as the 10000000 band only gore lyrics. There´re a lot of different things we talk in lyrics. But there are some gory and bloody songs, too haha
It´s just one song in German language. The most songs are made by our vocalist then me and the other guitarist.

11) Can you briefly explain what each song is about?
Yes sure!
Beinspender: It´s about a soldier and war mines.
One Night Steak: One night stands. One part is allways only a piece of flesh that satisfy somebodys sexually fantasy
Darmmanifest: Our society and the only god is money
After Killing: A serialkiller is doing his job
L 2 A 5: About a tank and the power of it
Inner Fear: it´s a personally song about fears and that you´ve fight against them
Grave New World: The human race and how we handle it with our nature.
Menschenfeind: Misanthropist.
Foxy Disintegration: Death and the hope that there´s something after this what we call life..
 
12) "Beinspender" seems to deal a lot with war - is it a concept album? Where did you get the movie samples from? I bet one of them is from "Stalingrad", one of the most frightening movies I ever saw... . What attracts your interest to war anyway?
Yes, it´s a lot of war but it was not a concept album. The samples are from Stalingrad and the first from?! Don´t know haha War is something typical for the human race like to eat or drink. You know it is like: "If there is no war we´ll make some" they´ll find allways a reason haha

13) When will we hear a new DISINFECT CD?
Hope at the middle of summer 2002!

14) What do you think about the current german extreme underground scene? Are there any bands you personally like a lot?
I think the scene is growing!! That´s great to see that there are more and more people at concerts!! There´re some very good bands like ANASARCA, GALLERY OF DARKNESS, OF TREES AND ORCHIDES, FLESHCRAWL, APOPHIS, OBSCENITY...

15) You're organizing the DEPTH OF WINTER festival near Stuttgart every year. What's the idea behind it - I think it's a charity festival for children with cancer? I think that's a brilliant idea - how did you develop this concept? Did you work in a hospital? Are there any commonly known bands
playing the festival or is it pure underground?

Yes it´s a charity one. I spend the money for children with cancer this year. I think the money will be for animals next year! It was not my idea it´s the one of Haiko he was our first drummer and he made this festival for years but he had no time to make it longer and the last two years are made by my self and help of some other people. I got big help from Oliver of SACRIFICIUM he made the home-page and the he was one of the sound guys!
I allways try to put some good underground bands on stage but some well known bands, too! Last year FLESHCRAWL, APOPHIS this year DISASTROUS MURMUR and next year??

16) Do you have a funny or interesting story for our readers?
HAHA I think there´re a lot of really good storys. I´ll talk about the SINISTER tour in Weinheim. At this day some people stand in front of the place and they had not enough money to came in. I came out infront of the place and I was fuckin´ drunk and they asked me if I can do something and I let them in. Two of this visitors play now in my band and one of the girls didn´t want to came with me to the hotel room , weeks later I met her in a club but I wasn´t so drunk like on tour haha and we talked a little bit and she said something about the tour and if I knew her I was not 100% sure because I was so drunk at this time. Some days after we had a date and since that date she´s my girlfriend! That´s a funny and romantic story haha

17) Any last words? Anything you would like to add?
Ramon, thanks a lot for this very cool interview!! Have a nice X-Mass and don´t drink to much haha The readers should take a look at www.disinfect.de and if you like our stuff you can buy our new CD! ;-)

VOLUME MAXIMUM

1. I do not like to start an interview with biography, so, first of all, whats the word DISINFECT mean to all of you? And how about Beinspender?
That´s our life in the moment! Something very importend! Beinspender is our current CD and I hope a good one. Till now we got lots of very good reviews/interviews and the people react very cool to the music!

2. You recorded Beindspender in Slovaks Exponent Studio, then, whats the main reason behind this? The price? The result you want? Or just for vacation?
I think you have huge killer studios recording around you? Roger of APOPHIS told me about the studio that there´s a good sound and very cheap and this was the reason to go to Slovak Rep. We got a lot good studios here in Germany but they are fuckin´ expensive.

3. I have to reduce the bass volume of my stereo to hear Beinspender perfectly, do you got this such problems during the recording process? Or maybe only me who got this problems ha ha?
We don´t have this kind of problems. Yes it´s true it´s a deep frequencies oriented CD

4. I never heard REST IN HELL records who really lucky to get a chance to release Beinspender, are you happy/satisfied with what they´ve done? I think with your killer members and songs, lots of big label will try to be your wife ah ah..
It´s a new and small label they paid the CD´s and our backdrop but that´s all!! No promotion at all I´ve to do all work alone like before without a label. Hope we´ll get a chance for a good and fair record deal!!

5. Your songs, I´d like to say that were pretty cool brutal songs. Who´s the main writer of all your songs? Their looks like you have trained. Are you guys trained or self taught?
Thanks!! Great to hear that especially because I´m the main writer of the songs and some of the lyrics. Some of us play their instruments about 10 years and we played in a lot of different bands till now.

6. I heard that Germans metal scene were very rough now than 80´s/90´s era? What do you see?
Yes it´s getting rougher from year to year like the music or if you want to get a deal or to play somewhere!! Everything is getting rougher!

7. Also you said that Germany has no more TV shows for metal, I couldn´t believe that, you know, and there are so many big bands from your country.
Yes that´s true. There´re no Metal shows here in TV!! This sucks because we´ve a big Metal scene!!

8. You got tons of gigs and get in touch with lots of bands off course. Then tell us 5 or more unsigned metal bands from your country that worth to check out.
Ok here´re 5 unsigned bands:
GALLERY OF DARKNESS great Death Metal OF TREES AND ORCHIDES Death Metal / they´ve a new name now but I forgot it?! FALLEN SAINTS Death Metal
FALLEN YGGDRASIL Death Metal APOPHIS Death/ Thrash

9. Tell us a little of your next CD. Have you written some of them? What will it be? And what kind of things are you practicing now?
Yes, there´re some new songs done till now!! We tuned down our guitars. We´re on C now . Second the music will be more technical but also brutal and fuckin´ fast!! This time there´re a lot lyrics about sex and violence. Something new in Death Metal haha We´re now working on new songs because we want to go studio and that very soon!!

10. Thank you. Now everything is yours.
Thanks a lot for the intie Agung and the other readers should take a look at www.disinfect.de and listen to some tracks and if you like the stuff just order it at disinfect@gmx.de
 



WARZONE

1.- Hi Chris. How are you?
Hi C, thanks I´m fine, everything is allright!

2.- Well, Disinfect is a know act mainly in Europe thanks to Beinspender but here in South America is not as known as should be. Can you start this interview telling us about the main facts in Disinfect history?
DISINFECT was formed in 1999 as a side project. I played before in a other Death Metal band called OBSCURE but the music was to slow and I decided to start a new project but after a while OBSCURE split after 5 years and DISINFECT started to be my mainprojekt. We play brutal Death Metal in the vein of US bands. Fuckin´ fast, deep and brutal

3.- The reviews for Beinspender are very good. How you feel about that?
Yeah it´s great to see that a lot people like our stuff! That´s a very good feeling, till now we didn´t get any bad review!

4.- Why you change from Rest in Hell Records to Diamond Records? What are the new plans in the new label? A new album on the way?
REST IN HELL did nothing for our promotion, support and I had to do everything! Hope DIAMOND will do a better job but I think they will! Yeah a new album is planned for the end of 2003!! Expect a killer album

5.- I have read that your live act is brutal and intense. Tell us about Disinfect on stage. Do you play covers?
We´re a live band. Just like hell on stage. No we don´t play covers

6.- Which was the most important concert in Disinfect history?
There were many importend gigs. OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL was the first in the current line up. But the greatest was in France in the La Laiterie a big stage with crazy people but the extremest gig was in Croatia the fans went crazy and the bath in club was full of blood!!

7.- Who are your music heroes? What music are you hearing today?
Trey of MORBID ANGEL is a great guitar player!
CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL, NILE, DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE(US), DYING FETUS, SINISTER........

8.- What bands from the under scene of Germany do you recomend to us?
GALLERY OF DARKNESS, APOPHIS, OF TREES AND ORCHIDS, FALLEN YGGDRASIL

9.- What is your opinion of the "melodic death metal"?
I don´t like this childish melodies!

10.- Changing the subject I am very happy that Gemany ain't supporting that stupid war of Bush. Is good to know that most of the "biggest" countries are working for a better world and are against the "preventive war".
If war is needed then they should do it but not with reasons that no one can and should believe! The only reason was the oil, the control over this area and to help Israel!

11.- May be almighty president Bush declare Gemany and all other countries (including Chile) that are against the war to be part of the "axis of evil"....
He´s a stupid man but if he think he can go on this way then he´s totally wrong! This countries are not stupid and if needed they´ll exist without USA

12.- Thanks for your time and please feel free to say anything else to our readers.
Thanx for the interview and support!!
All the people out there take a look at www.disinfect.de and listen to more extreme musick!
