HOT INTERVIEWS



SHAI HULUD
by Marcs77
Pompano Beach, Florida's SHAI HULUD toured Europe by large last Spring joining Canada's skate-punkers Propagandhi on the UK/European leg of their Failed States tour 2013. This tour came definitely as a really good juicy chance for Shai Hulud to take the new record “Reach Beyond The Sun” on the European stages (they've got lot of full-house shows according to the people involved on this tour). GOTANERVE-ZINE got the chance to seat down with guitarist Matt Fox -the only founder member still in the band since 1995- before the Milan show and have like an hour chat about their latest effort, the tour they were currently into, people misunderstanding some misanthropic, hatred and negative themes in their lyrics and T-Shirts arts, Chad Gilbert being back to collaborate with the band as singer and producer, today hardcore music, the movie they took inspiration from to name their band and some interesting down to earth stories about the band and who Matt is up and off stage. There's really lotta stuff really worth reading here so I'm not gonna keep this opening longer. read more...

SPLEEN FLIPPER
by Michela A.
“The will to kill”, new album by SPLEEN FLIPPER. Italian HC going fast, going East. On stage for 13 years, Spleen Flipper celebrate the band’s “step into teenage years” with a new, dense, fearsome and definitely wise full length: “The Will To Kill”. 9 fast-burning tracks which carve new SF’ sound: TWTK is the latest step of an evolution from the early punk-HC, straight (and damned fast!) towards the recent offending and relentless “blastcore”, a lethal mix of hardcore, death, black and grindcore…well, the guys lack for nothing! Spleen Flipper are still spreading their sound far and wide, with a bunch of gigs around Italy and an upcoming tour in...well, I don’t wanna add more about that now! We hope that our chat with Topper, SF's lead voice and co-founder, will feed your curiosity...at least until the next news, of course! read more...

HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS
by marcs77
The younger of you may not remember or even have heard of HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS, a pop punk post-HC rock combo hailing from Dayton, Ohio. But those who were listening to the genre in mid 00's are surely familiar with the name and with two releases like “The Silence In Black And White” and “If You Only Were Lonely” which brought to these guys their fair share of deserved notoriety and pushed their name top of the rankings of USA charts. The death of founder member Casey Calver (guitar/screams) on tour at age of 26 and a legal battle with their back then label Victory records took the five-piece away off the spotlights. 2013, they're done with the recording of the new album (scheduled for a Summer release) and if you head over to their official website today you'll find a countdown timer to the day the new site will be up (it just a few hours over 2 days). read more...

MARISOLV
by marcs77
Could starting this out mentioning that Germany's (Bad Hersfeld/Gotha based) MARISOLV born out of the ashes of metalcorers Bury My Sins but it would only be pretty reductive to say the least. The quintet (or old fuckers as Marco says) behind this project are well into in their thirties and have been involved in the hardcore for many years being in bands, releasing records, promoting bands, setting up shows, doing paper fanzines or running webzines and supporting their local HC/Metal scene. You know, all the good things about hardcore punk and DIY read more...

SET YOUR GOALS
by marcs77
Oh Summer time! How many of you guys are missing it? I don't think this is much of a concern for the Cali kids and to those who live in some all-year-warm countries around the globe. Why thinking to Summer on January the 2nd -and even worse, why, when I happen I've nothing against our European winter time? Well, the interview you're gonna read here below took place on 26th July 2012 after the show SET YOUR GOALS played at 4th edition of Into The Pit festival read more...

ALL FOR NOTHING
by michela a.
Next stop…South East Asia!
At the time you will read these lines, the Rotterdam-based HC-band All For Nothing will be on stage somewhere in South East Asia, spreading their energetic hardcore to the Southern hemisphere, in a run through Thailand, Malaysia, The Philippines, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur. Years have passed since they started playing together in 2002, but after thousands of gigs sharing the stage with the best names of the international hardcore, punk and metal scene, AFN are still down-to-earth guys read more...

OVERSEAS
by marcs77
“Not settling for less when you can go further and walk the extra mile”. Let me start my bit of opening-blabbing quoting a line off a reply below by OVERSEAS. It's true that many bands are happy to settle for less (and this could work whether that's their goal) but I'm in my view all bands that walk the extra mile and work their asses off to break boundaries (being them geographic, cultural, whatever...) read more...

WOLFxDOWN
by roberta p.
Here below is the interview to WOLFxDOWN a German hardcore band whose last work "RENEGADES" is the evidence they're worth to listen to and follow. Moreover, they're not just playing HC music: if you want someone who's really consistent with what they're professing, then support this straight-edge band who's fighting for a more fair world. read more...

SUBWASTE
by marcs77
Örebro's punks! Punk rock ensemble SUBWASTE just toured Europe with USA's Stabbed In Back -a fivesome hailing from Albuquerque, NM- but since I really couldn't make it to attend any of the three shows the guys played in Italy, the first plan was to do an email interview to be up before the tour kicked off. You know, things go as they go and this interview was replied by Tobbe (vocals and guitar) only when back home. So, meanwhile the tour is off and the new split that sees Subwaste and Stabbed In Back share the 7” wax is out via Warbird entertainment. read more...
