Interview: Cerebral Bore on finding inspiration from everything from funny farts to good burgers

February 24th, 2012

Last week you’ll have no doubt read us urging you to go check out ‘Horrendous Acts of Iniquity’, the brand new track from three-quarters-Scottish-one-quarter-Dutch gore-minded upstarts, Cerebral Bore. And if you read any of the words that were alongside the bowel-threateningly aggressive death metal, you’ll know that this isn’t a cut off a forthcoming album or even an EP, but as a single. A single? Yes, and a non-album single at that. People still do those, apparently.

We figured this was more than enough of an excuse to catch up with the band’s guitarist/manager, Paul Mcguire, to find out not only why they’ve done this, but to grill him on everything else that’s been going on and is about to kick off over in the world of Cerebral Bore.

Last week, Scottish-based gore-minded death metallers, Cerebral Bore, went into the studio to record a new single. Not a new album, mind you – just a new single – in order to try out a few new ideas in preparation for their next album, whichthey’re planning on recording later in 2012. What really caught our attention, however, is how Cerebral Bore have chose to premier this new track – ‘Horrendous Acts of Iniquity’ – on their unsuspecting fanbase.

Alterno-crossover bands swarm over metal like herpes over Tommy Lee’s genitals. In fact, the genre has become so riddled with tributary offshoots and bastardised spawn that it’s often easy to forget the birthing wails of metal; the riffs given by Black Sabbath, the vocal acrobatics of Led Zeppelin and how the generation of bands thereafter – Priest, Maiden, Metallica – moulded an undeniably fierce, dark beast (born of its predecessors) that remained the archetype for so long. However ‘purist’ metal bands of late have looked tired and uncertain of this brave new world. Savage Messiah and their latest release, Plague of Conscience, look ready to smash this trend.

Earache Records are letting you download the entire of Dirge free of charge right now, a month before it’s even “out”. For all three of you who aren’t already convinced, I’m going to explain why you should download it, play it to death, then buy a CD copy, a t-shirt and catch Wormrot on tour.

Album: Annihilator – Annihilator (S/T)

By Tom Dare

Like a number of genuinely great thrash bands – Testament being a prime example – Annihilator suffered with poor timing. Emerging and releasing their finest records in the late 80s and early 90s meant they missed the scene’s peak, and missed out on the wider attention they should have got as thrash went underground again. Unlike Testament, Annihilator haven’t yet capitalised of the recent rekindling of interest in the genre by releasing a record which recalls their finest days.

If this was a popularity contest I’d gleefully slap a “maximum rating” on this sucker and swagger off to The Crobar or somewhere proclaiming it to be the Neo-thrash equivalent of wheel reinvention. That would be lying though, and lying ‘aint my game, no sir.

Interview: Oceano – “Theres always SOMETHING to be pissed about!”

April 6th, 2009

Ahead of the release of their debut album, Depths, we caught up with Chicago death metallers Oceano. Frontman Adam Warren to discuss just how angry they are, the pitfalls of brutalising hot women and their favourite bit of a cow…

Depths is a pretty angry record and you’ve described yourself as an angry band. What has pissed you off so much?
“We’re pissed off about alot of things, albeit the hiccups and burdens we experience in life all the way down to the wrongs in society and just how inherently fucked up this world can be.”
