survivor of the plague
one of the better bands to come out of the american scene for a long time!
1 can you introduce us to the line up of survivor of the plague?
"right now it's me on vocals, Jake on guitar, Conor on drums, Adam on guitar
and Kevin on bass"
2 can you tell us a bit about the musical style of the band?
"it's a different approach than my previous bands, we are a mix of early dbeat,
hardcore, metal, punk and power electronics"
3 what thoughts do you normally write about? "anti regime, personal issues, current political situations, anything against the dictator we now have in office"
4 can you tell me the massive influence on this band?
"we are influenced mainly by the state of affairs around us, the constant turmoil we all
experience living in this system. however as far as musical influences you can hear discharge, gism, grey wolves etc"
5 this genre is normally left leaning or apolitical... are you feeling this album will make
it catch on with right winged people?
"I am not sure that it will catch on or not but that really doesn't matter to me, the band
is an outlet of ideas. anyone who liked my previous band will probably like this, survivors
just an extension of that. this band gives me more freedom to try new things than the
previous one did. we have released three short releases already "humanism is shit",
"the system causes pain" and "uberlebenden der pest". so far the response has been
very good, the new album "we must be as equally brutal" should raise a few eyebrows
in either a positive or negative way. it has never really mattered to me what people
thought of me or my music, it just keep going."
6 are you part of any group?
"i am in 28 social club and proud of it. we stick to ourselves."
7 in your area, hows nationalism? is it growing or shrinking?
"it's growing only because we were smart enough to drop the 80's skinhead thing and
change with the times."
8 is antifa common there?
"they used to be but not so much anymore. i believe when election time comes around
they will be out in droves. the dummies think obama is their friend lol"
9 whats your feeling on downloading music?
"i am very much against it unless it's on bandcamp or something. the bands and labels
are losing their ass and not able to fund new projects due to everyone stealing the music.
it's killing our scene and to be honest it's no different than stealing. if the band allows free
downloading that's on them. the current 'fans' steal the music and disseminate it
everywhere and no one buys the release the band spent months to years writing and
recording and a couple grand recording and pressing. is the music funding a cause
anymore? no. because the 'supporters' are fucking the bands over in turn fucking the
