Небольшой опрос от No Clean Singing

Опубликовано ресурсом No Clean Singing.


(Today our Russian contributor Comrade Aleks brings us Part 3 of a four-part series in which he puts the same five questions to doom bands from around the world, and introduces us to their music at the same time.)

Sometimes I use this unpopular “quiz” format because there are too many interesting bands that I would like to bring to light, and in my opinion it’s a good way to spread some news and to get new points of view on a few issues (including even some political questions). The list of questions I put to the bands is below:

1. What is the band’s latest news and what are your plans for the near future?

2. What do we get (in the broadest sense) from the release of your last album?

3. What is the best response that your band has ever received?

4. What role does the church (or any other religious organization) play in your life or (let’s take it wider) in the life of the heavy scene? Is there any spiritual, religious, or antireligious component in your songs?

5. What does the Media in your country tell about the situation in Ukraine? And how do you see that situation? Some people from other countries have asked me strange questions about Russia’s policy, and let me say that I have a few friends in Ukraine and my colleagues have relatives there, and believe me, there’s no media in ANY country that is showing the problem as it really is. We can watch as the Cold War turns into real warfare.

Today, we bring the answers to these questions from Altar Of Oblivion (Denmark), Barabbas (France), Boneworm (USA), Don Juan Matus (Peru), and Evoke Thy Lords (Russia).

Evoke Thy Lords (Novosibirsk, Russia)

1. Maybe, our new record is both the main thing and our plans for the close future. It’s on the final straight, we’re bringing it to the final point in the studio.

2. Drunken Tales got good opinions and, of course, it’s great. We believe, in this work, that we succeeded in passing a main message of this music. We can consider it to be our main achievement with our latest release. We’re talking about these things, aren’t we?

3. Nice melodies, but depressing. Stop drinking.

4. As far as I’m concerned, these institutions don’t have any impact on us and other Siberian heavy bands. I hope the situation won’t change. Our music doesn’t include such kinds of elements, at least in a traditional way.

5. Frankly speaking, I’ve never trusted mass media, and taking into consideration all the infoglut that is on the internet I think it’s not possible to know the truth. I think, in media, any useful signal is almost completely lost through misinformation and infoglut. I don’t think the great bulk of people in Russia or Ukraine really understand what’s going on. All we can do is to guess using sketchy information. We all wish, of course, that the chaos will vanish as soon as possible, and that the people in Ukraine won’t suffer any more.
