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.

Nuance is a wonderful thing. It can turn a cheeky wink into a conspiratorial sign, a smile into a sarcastic dagger in the back of an enemy and a clap of appreciation is easily slowed into a mocking clap of listless distain and indifference. Imagine a life without nuance, the world would keep spinning of course, but things would be, well, a lot duller – a lot less fun.

Slipknot – ‘Dead Memories’ lyrics

Sitting in the dark, I can’t forget.
Even now, I realize the time I’ll never get.
Another story of the Bitter Pills of Fate.
I can’t go back again.
I can’t go back again
But you asked me to love you and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit.
And when I got away, I only got so far.
The Other Me Is Dead.
I hear his voice inside my head
We were never alive,
And we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
You told me to love you and I did.
Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit.
So when I got away, I only kept my scars.
The Other Me Is Gone.
Now I don’t know where I belong.
We were never alive, and we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive
With Dead Memories in my heart.
Dead Visions in your Name.
Dead Fingers in my Veins.
Dead Memories in my Heart.

You may have seen Shinedown in the UK recently as the sole support to the mighty Disturbed. They went down an absolute alestorm.

The good news is that a) they’re releasing their big new single, ‘Devour’ on 17 November 2008 through Atlantic Records (it’ll be all over the radio, trust us on this) and b) they’re coming back to the UK in January for their debut headline tour.

Shinedown January tourdates
21 London Underworld
22 Manchester Academy
23 Glasgow King Tuts
25 Birmingham Barfly

You should probably go to one of these shows. They’re rather good live.

Shinedown – ‘Devour’ lyrics
Take it and take it and take it and take it and take it all
Take it and take it and take it until you take us all
Smash it and crash it and thrash it and trash it
You’re only toys
Try it you’ll like it don’t hide it don’t fight it, just let it out
Steal and shoot it and kill it or take another route
Take it and take it and take it
You know they’re only toys

Devour Devour
Suffocate your own empire
Devour Devour
It’s your final hour

Devour Devour
Stolen like a foreign soul
Devour Devour
What a way to go

You want it you want it you want it
Well here it is
Everything everything everything
Isn’t so primitive

Take it and take it and take it and take it and take it all
Nobody nobody wants to feel like this
Nobody nobody wants to live like this
Nobody nobody wants a war like this

Devour Devour
Suffocate your own empire
Devour Devour
It’s your final hour

Devour Devour
Stolen like a foreign soul
Devour Devour
What a way to go
What a way to go

Diving down
Round and round
diving down
round and round

Devour Devour
Suffocate your own empire
Devour Devour
It’s your final hour

Devour Devour
Stolen like a foreign soul
Devour Devour
What a way to go

Devour Devour
Suffocate your own empire
Devour Devour
It’s your final hour

Devour Devour
Stolen like a foreign soul
Devour Devour
What a way to go
What a way to go

‘Devour’ by Shinedown is released 17 November 2008 via Atlantic Records

Slipknot’s ‘All Hope Is Gone’: the verdict

June 20th, 2008

Fans have been waiting for over four years, but Slipknot have finally unleashed their new material upon the masses. It’s always a lottery when a band releases new material. Will it be great? Will it disappoint? Raziq Rauf finds out.

Slipknot Purgatory Masks

Those of us at Download Festival might have seen the morose-looking folk sitting on the grass holding the placards that had nothing but the classic Slipknot logo with a URL for http://www.allhopeisgone.com.

It was a message meant to excite those who know and intrigue those who don’t enough to make them want to find out.

News was released that ‘All Hope Is Gone’ was the title track off Slipknot’s forthcoming album (25 August 2008) and it was to be released as a free download on Roadrunner Records’ official website for one day only on 20 June 2008.

The good news is that ‘All Hope Is Gone’ is a brilliant 4min 50sec of hardcore-infused heavy metal that has Corey Taylor’s trademark barked lyrics and Joey Jordison’s super-tight drumming throughout.

Additional call-to-arms vocals appear during the almost-rousing chorus – expect a few fists being pumped into the air when this is played live. The last minute crescendos into a series of powerful breakdowns as well, giving the ending a huge sense of relief.

Thrash Hits .com verdict? Slipknot are back but there must be more to come. Now go and listen to ‘All Hope Is Gone’ and learn the words.

Watch the video to the UK Top 20 single ‘Duality’ by Slipknot

It’s been three years since the band (pictured, above in their Purgatory masks) last toured together and several band members have remained active.

With Stone Sour, singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root released yet another Gold-selling album in Come What(ever) May while Joey Jordison drummed for Ministry and Korn and produced 3 Inches Of Blood’s latest record Fire Up The Blades.

All Hope Is Gone, the band’s fourth album (no, Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat was not a proper album) was recorded in Iowa by the band and Dave Fortnam and promises to be the “most mature, most beautiful and the most powerful” thing Slipknot have done.

They are looking to build on the platinum-selling Vol.3 (The Subliminal Verses), which hit Top 10s across the world as well as spawning singles that hit the UK Top 20 and US Top 10. The album will be released just after Slipknot have performed at Reading (24 August 2008) and Leeds (22 August 2008) Festivals.

‘All Hope Is Gone’ Lyrics:

The state of the nation – violation!
A broken promise is as good as a lie.
The hell is humongous, the devil’s among us
And we will burn because we won’t unite!

We won’t witness anymore freedom.
Where is anybody? Do we need ’em?”
I would rather fight than let another die.
We’re the problem but we’re also the solution.

ALL HOPE IS GONE!

There’s no video, but listen to ‘All Hope Is Gone’ by Slipknot

If you want you cannot take it from me.
If you think you can, you still don’t know me.
Let me tell you, when I said it, I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it.

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders.
The bill of rights is a bill of sale.
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your systems fail!?

We have made the presence -obsolete.
What do you want? What do you need?
We’ll find a way, when all hope is gone!
We’ve seen the fall of the elite.
Bury your life, take your disease.
We’ll end the world, when all hope is gone!

The wretched are the wounded, the hungry starved to death.
At a place where no-one goes, the air itself is a final breathe.
So discontinue the antiseptic cash charade.
As the cry of justice comes, I’m gonna let this fire free!

I am the reason your future suffers.
I am the hatred you won’t embrace.
I am the worm of a pure distinction.
I am the remedy, spit in my face!
All your lies and wars are out-dated.
All your subjects are dulling mind games.
I can rattle off a million other reasons why
but doesn’t matter when the only thing will never die!

We have made the presence -obsolete.
What do you want? What do you need?
We’ll find a way, when all hope is gone!
We’ve seen the fall of the elite.
Bury your life, take your disease.
We’ll end the world, when all hope is gone!

‘Psychosocial’ will be released on 7 July 2008 and All Hope Is Gone will be released on 25 August 2008 on Roadrunner Records

Katy Perry

Lyrics
This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It’s not what, I’m used to
Just wanna try you on
I’m curious for you
Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

No, I don’t even know your name
It doesn’t matter
Your my experimental game
Just human nature
It’s not what, good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it
