EARGASM ZINE INTERVIEW Chronicore Zine 2014

CHRONIC GREETINGS ! PLEASE TELL US YOUR NAME AND THE DETAILS OF YOUR ZINE Hell-OH Anto, How are things going? My name is Ken "Hammer". I use Hammer as my pen name or should I say my code name haha. Eargasm Zine is an underground fanzine who supports TRUE UNDERGROUND music and anything that goes around with it.

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START PUBLISHING YOUR OWN ZINE?

It all started back in 2008, during the Defiled/Hydrophobia show. I had the chance to finally meet the people from IDP Forum where most of them are zine writers (Read some of their issues back in my highschool days, so it is really something big to finally meet them in person). Same day where I had the chance to grab all the available fanzines on that show. Shared a few drinks with those people then I just told myself "Why not have my own fanzine?". The following day, Eargasm Zine was born.

HOW DID YOU COME OUT WITH THE NAME OF YOUR ZINE? My fanzine is all about noise, extreme and violent mu-SICK and culture as well. So I named it Eargasm Zine since my ears gets an ultimate pleasure whenever I listen to those kind of mu-sick.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH A THEME FOR YOUR ZINE? For me, I just want it to look raw and primitive. Same as with the music that I am listening to. I want to share that raw and primitive feel to the readers as well. WHAT ZINES INSPIRES YOU? There is too many to mention but I can give you the first fanzines that will CUM in to my head, same fanzines that triggered me to have my own zine. Local fanzines since these are the only available and affordable fanzines on the table during shows during my highschool days. -In Dark Purity Zine -No Bullshit Zine -Guttural Sickness Zine -Glory Eye Zine -Tripalium zine As you can see, most of them are from my home town, CAVI-tits!!! Wel-CUM to the SOUTH!!!

CAN YOU STILL REMEMBER YOUR VERY FIRST ROMANCE WITH A ZINE? WHAT ZINE WAS IT?

Actually it came all in 1 package. Again, all of them are local fanzines. No bullshit Zine, In dark Purity Zine, Guttural Sickness zine and there was compilations of news letters. That was during the hardcore fest in Cavite as well.

WHEN DID YOUR ZINE'S FIRST ISSUE COME OUT? After being impaled and abused by Defiled and Hydrophobia, the following day I've started to CUNT-act bands on the internet. That was back in 2008. First issue came out Early December 2008.

HOW MANY ISSUES HAVE YOU PUBLISHED SO FAR? So far I have 3 issues.Latest is the split with Manong Zine (Check it out). I almost pulled the plug of this little project of mine since there is nothing to write about back in 2010.

IS YOUR ZINE FOR SALE/NOT FOR SALE/FOR TRADE? Donations = THANK YOU!!!! Trade = Better (Beer/fanzine/promo/demo or a pretty lady will do haha) Sometimes I just give it as a freebie whenever someone buys some stuff from my little distro. If I am in the mood I just give a copies to some random people present at a gig or show.

HOW DID YOU GET IT OUT THERE? How did I release it or how did I get it out of the CUNT-ry??? Well I'll just answer both. How did I release it? Well, I don't have the basic needs of a modern zine writer like a computer or a printer. I don't even have a budget for this crap actually so I need to work hard for it. Spared a few bucks from my salary and allowance (since I am a working student back in those days). Rent a PC from my good old friend (sometimes he let's me use the main server for free). Had a background with our school newspaper so sometimes I sneak in and print my copies at the school. All in all it was a struggle but it was FUN!!! Out of the CUNT-ry??? Some of my old buddies attend shows outside the country. Sometimes they ask me if its ok for them to have a few copies of my fanzine that they can either trade or share with other nationalities that will be on that show. So I give them like 5 to 6 copies and it is up to them if they will re-print it or sell it.

WHO WAS THE FIRST BAND/PEOPLE YOU INTERVIEWED? HOW? For my first issue I featured local bands and again most of them are from our CUNT-ry. Phlegm Thrower, Toxemia, Human Mastication, Vex (Featured on Noise Attack Fanzine) Internal Torture and etc. I already know most of them before I started my fanzine since I order a lot of stuff online so asking them to be a FART of my first Issue is not a problem.

HOW DO YOU GATHER AND ROUND UP CONTRIBUTORS? About the CUNT-ributors, Well for me and the CUNT-ributors it's all just about trippin. They send me a porn review, cd review, photos or an arti-kill....I include it on my issue as long as it has sense in it or let us say a black and fiendish humor!!! hahahaha....

IT WAS A VERY LONG STRUGGLE, HOW HAVE YOUR POLICIES TOWARDS ADVERTISING AND REVIEWS CHANGED THROUGH OUT THIS YEARS? Before, since I don't have my own computer, I just post my fanzine on myspace or send a picture of it through email to other zine editors and bands who might be interested on trading or working with me for my next issue. Then after that it will take another week for me to check my virtual mailbox. My releases will only be available at gigs however it will be very limited since I don't have a budget to produce mass copies. I also print fliers so that I can give it out during shows to new friends and bands as well for them to check out my myspace account for I also post my reviews and interviews online. Before a hard material is very important for me since my only way to listen to a band's recording was through my cd player or mini component for my cassette tapes. Now, since I have the basic needs of a modern zine writer, promotion is just a click away. I can now listen to mp3 files that they send that I can review but still the hard copy is very essential to me. I still do the basics where I print and trade fliers. Nothg BEATS the basic and primitive way of promoting something haha... YOUR GOALS? For the zine; to have more issues. I will keep on writing as long as there is something to write about. I will write as long as I can. For the mu-sick; let those imbeciles know that MUSIC is not for sale....It should be shared....Selling MUSIC in a very INHUMANE PRICE ain't right at all!!!

YOU ALSO HAVE YOUR OWN DISTRO, CAN YOU ALSO SHARE THE DETAILS WITH US? It's just a little distro. Helping out fanzines and local bands spread their filth since I buy a package deal of their materials. That's it....

WHERE CAN THE READERS CONTACT YOU? I don't have a permanent address for now since I am not staying with my parents but you can send your inquiries here: eargasmzine@yahoo.com

SALAMAT KEN !

Maraming Salamat kaibigan!!! More su-FART to your fanzine and hope to see you and share some drink and weed with you!!! Cheers!!!!

TRIPALIUM ZINE INTERVIEW
Chronicore Zine 2013


CHRONIC GREETINGS ! PLEASE TELL US YOUR NAME AND THE DETAILS OF YOUR ZINE.
Greetings Anto. Roel here of Tripalium Zine. Tripalium, focuses on unsigned and lesser known bands without regards to genres. My main interest though are grindcore, old school death metal and brutal death.



WHAT  MOTIVATED YOU TO START PUBLISHING YOUR OWN ZINE?
Back in the 80's punk zines have fascinated me and I always wanted to have my own. Unfortunately I don't have the resources to start with back then . Only when I worked in Saudi Arabia that my dream became reality.



HOW DID YOU COME OUT WITH THE NAME OF YOUR ZINE?
It's actually an amalgam of the words "Trip" and the latin word "Pallium", meaning cloak. My personal meaning to the word is travelling in darkness. Then in an old issue of Readers Digest I read about the torture instrument called Tripalium. The name stuck into my mind ever since.

Even before I actually started the zine I already have the logo done inspired my Sarcofago's logo.That was around 90-91. I think I still have that design in my vault.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH A THEME FOR YOUR ZINE?
I don't have a certain theme. Whatever gets into my head, I put them into the pages of my zine.


WHAT ZINES INSPIRES YOU?
Back in the day, early Pinoy punk/Hardcore zines like Oi!banger, but Werewolf and Inverted Grind zines inspiredme to push through.

CAN YOU STILL REMEMBER YOUR VERY FIRST ROMANCE WITH A ZINE?  WHAT ZINE WAS IT?
With indie fanzine, I can't really remember the name but it featured cut-out article of Metallica from foreign magazines together with some local punk and hardcore bands. I have already read the Metallica article that time but seeing it in a totally different layout looks far more awesome. As early as 85/86 I already have access to mags like Creem, Metal Creem and Hit Parader thru my old ally from Gapo but a photocopied, rough laid-out zine had much more appeal to me.  

WHEN DID YOUR ZINE'S FIRST ISSUE COME OUT?
It was in 2001, I think. I started publishing online at first and about a year later I decided to have it printed. I was still in Saudi Arabia that time.

HOW MANY ISSUES HAVE YOU PUBLISHED SO FAR?
I printed 3 issues, the fourth one, which was supposed to be my biggest issue, was never printed but some of the interviews and reviews were posted online. I'm now working on the fifth issue.

IS YOUR ZINE FOR SALE/NOT FOR SALE/FOR TRADE?
It's basically for trade. I sold a few copies and some distros carried it but majority of the prints went into promotion and trades.

HOW DID YOU GET IT OUT THERE?
Basically, through trade and consignment from indie labels and distros. Sending out hundreds of flyers in the mail helped a lot in spreading the word too. But that was then, now it's mainly through social media.

WHO WAS THE FIRST BAND/PEOPLE YOU INTERVIEWED? HOW?
Rumblebelly via e-mail. When I contacted Alvin I was so excited when he agreed for an interview, I’m a big fan. Unfortunately it turned out  very disappointing. I almost shelved that interview, haha.

HOW DO YOU GATHER AND ROUND UP CONTRIBUTORS?
I work for my zine alone but if someone wanted to contribute something that is of similar interest as mine then I'll accept it with two horns up!

IT WAS A VERY LONG STRUGGLE, HOW HAVE YOUR POLICIES TOWARDS ADVERTISING AND REVIEWS CHANGED THROUGH OUT THIS YEARS?
Advertising? If you're talking about flyers, they were all printed for free, haha. Back in the days when review was part of the records' lifeline I review both purchased and submitted materials but since it's very easy to access records without spending a single cent nowadays, I think doing review is a lot less relevant. Unfortunately for kids today band support means downloading mp3's.  That's a real shame.


YOUR GOALS?
To have this fifth issue printed and to keep the zine running for as long as I could.


YOU ALSO HAVE YOUR OWN LABEL, CAN YOU ALSO SHARE THE DETAILS WITH US?
After years of hibernation Condemned Records was awaken by the smell of blood and weed that permeates the air of Cavite. In collaboration with Alex IDP's Berdugo Records, we are going to release a split CD with two of local sludge bands; Malicious Birth from Quezon City and Cavite’s own Tsimpayne . We're just waiting for Alex to finish his current projects and we'll start with the split.


WHEN WILL THE NEXT "CARNAGE" GONNA BE?
Unfortunately you were not there when we terrorized my quite village last March. It felt like a fuckin' re-union. Imagine guys that I haven't seen in a long while showed up to support the gig. The underground is really one happy community, haha.
Next year will be the 10th year of Rural Carnage and I intend to celebrate this with another event, and this time with better sound and a more accessible venue. I’ve already contacted a few people to help me out for this one, haha.

WHERE CAN THE READERS CONTACT YOU?
I'm on fakebook, www.facebook.com/tripaliumzine and you can also read the latest updates about Tripalium zine at http://tripaliumzine.blogspot.com/.

BIG THANKS FOR THIS INTIE BOSSING !
Thanks a lot Chief for the interview. Hope I can stop by your dungeon one of these days. Keep up the good work and stay strong.

KONSPIRAZINE (PHL)
INTERVIEW 2013

-CHRONIC GREETINGS ! PLEASE TELL US YOUR NAME AND THE DETAILS OF YOUR ZINE
Hello bro, thanks for the interest in doing this intie. My name's Jeff and I put out this zine based outta Binan. Laguna whenever time permits. I am a music fanatic of all genres but my zine leans more on the Hardcore and Punk side.

-WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START PUBLISHING YOUR OWN ZINE?
Back in the early 90's, I got to know some really cool folks who were heavy players in the local scenes. That was where I got to know most everyone in the scene, and the vets schooled me on everything that I know know, including the fanzine counter-culture. Ever since I was a kid, I was a sucker for anything print-related, be it books, zines and whatnot, I graduated from collecting glossy import music magazines in favor of the independently pressed (or photocopied, must I say) zines that touched bases with the bands and the scenes I was indirectly involed in. I found the idea of creating your own shot, putting it out yourself, and not being the boss of anyone else to be most liberating. From the early issues of Rock N Rhythm, to the punk hardcore zines of Anti, KeepdaFaith, etc, those early gems influenced me a great deal, more than anything else.

-HOW DID YOU COME OUT WITH THE NAME OF YOUR ZINE?
I started the zine as a collaboration of sorts with another fellow who was at the time running his own zine in San Pedro, Laguna. We abandoned our own zines and joined forces to do Conspirazine. The name was a play on the word conspire. Nowadays, (since 2009 or so), I have revived this dead horse and took off printing, pretty much doing everything on my own as my former zine partner now resides abroad.

-HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH A THEME FOR YOUR ZINE?
I don't have a theme, per se. But most issues, I try to keep a simple theme that I can ask all bands/people I interview the same theme related stuff. On the actual zine itself, although it delas with mostly Punk and Hardcore, genre-wise I don't limit myself to what gets put inside my zine's pages. I've had some metal in there, will put some Ska and Reggae stuff too,.Anything that interests me and anything that I dig. Hell, I could put in pics of my dog if I wanted to.

-WHAT ZINES INSPIRES YOU?
aside from the zines of old, nowadays I get my kick from these local masters of the craft: SCRAWLSHOP, WAVE OF DARKNESS, IN DARK PURITY, NO BULLSHIT, TRIDENT NATION, I REMEMBER HALOWEEN, REAL TIGHT CREW, TIGHT END, BELIEVE, TOGETHER, EKSENA LOKAL, WE THE INFECTED, CAVITY SEARCH, BASAG ANG PULA (Highly fuckin' recommended), DISPATCHES, INCIDENTAL AFTERTHOUGHT. all of these cool zines are currently the cream of the crop, and I'd highly recommend searching these titles and getting to know their owners and building friendship with them. They make cool fuckin' issues everytime, all the time.

-CAN YOU STILL REMEMBER YOUR VERY FIRST ROMANCE WITH A ZINE? WHAT ZINE WAS IT?
Wendy Says zine took many-a-trips with me to the bathroom back when I was a kid. And the Probe fanzines done by the guys from California. Hahaha.

-WHEN DID YOUR ZINE'S FIRST ISSUE COME OUT?
I made my first amateur zine (pre-Konspirazine) in 96-97? then I put out Konspirazine # 1 in 1998.

-HOW MANY ISSUES HAVE YOU PUBLISHED SO FAR?
Konspirazine is right now churning it's sixth issue. That little pice of trash woulda been put out last December 2012, but I am an extremely lazy fuck who can't find any valid excuse so let's leave it at that..

-IS YOUR ZINE FOR SALE/NOT FOR SALE/FOR TRADE?
By heirarchy, I prefer trades first. It doesn't matter if you made the zine yourself, or if you just photocopied that shit. I want to trade you for it. It's always cool reading other people's work, and way cooler when you got it through a trade. Nevermind the shit zines. At least you get to know the quality ones from the mediocre. I do sell my shit as well but as a zinemaker yourself, you'd know that no one buys zines anymore.

-HOW DID YOU GET IT OUT THERE?
Gigs, trades, etc.

-WHO WAS THE FIRST BAND/PEOPLE YOU INTERVIEWED? HOW?
Pre-konspirazine I had Cherrybomb, Tribal Fish, Kelt's Cross. and on my first issue of Konspirazine, I got Loads Of Motherhood, Bulldozed, Counter Attack and Homecide. All locals.

-HOW DO YOU GATHER AND ROUND UP CONTRIBUTORS?
The easy part is my contributors are all cool friends of mine. The hardest part is nagging them like a bitch whenever I'm ready to drop my baby. The same rings true for zines that ask me to contribute to them as well. I can be laziest motherfucker you'd get to know who sends in my contributions a year late! haha,.

-IT WAS A VERY LONG STRUGGLE, HOW HAVE YOUR POLICIES TOWARDS ADVERTISING AND REVIEWS CHANGED THROUGH OUT THIS YEARS?
I don't have a policy, period. I don't ask around for ads. I don't dream of getting any fucking money by doing this shit. The rule, if there is one, is pretty basic. If I like your shit, I will put it in my zine. be it through interviews, be it adverts of your releases, or getting your shit reviewed on my pages. I'd put in your ads of band shirts as long as I know you do shirts for the love of doing shirts and not for the love of "looking tough". That shit is meant for Pulp magazine, not mine. Believe it or not, most stuff I review were PURCHASED by myself. So if folks wanna have space on my zine, they better be damned sure their shit is something I dig (and would buy). The only thing I got free for doing my zine was more enemies.

-YOUR GOALS?
I don't have a goal for this zine, man. I don't have any visions of becoming a glossy, popular bitch magazine. I will do this zine as long as the music still interests me, as long as my friends still enjoy reading them as much as I do creating them. As long as I have ten readers continuously interested in my work, that should be enough.

-WHERE CAN THE READERS CONTACT YOU?
I have an irregular blog up where folks get to see any updates whenever time permits at therealstrength.blogspot.com, any quick messages can be thrown at the chatbox on that page, otherwise my email address is spiritofrebellion981@gmail.com

-BIG THANKS FOR THIS INTIE BROTHER !
Likewise, it was a pleasure indulging in this interview bro. Thank you for the interest. Maraming salamat! Love music, purchase records (cds, tapes, and wax, when you love the music.) make your own zines! Read.

Sincerity, Integrity, Faith & Action!

EATING SHIT [France]
Interviewed by Anto ChronicoreZine
2013


1) WARM GREETINGS MY FRIENDS ! WHERE IN FRANCE EXACTLY IS EATING SHIT BASE? DO YOU HAVE A VERY ACTIVE MUSIC SCENE THERE?

1.We live in Haute Savoie, near Switzerland (Geneva) in the Alps very near Mont Blanc the highest mountain of Europe. It’s a quite wealthy part of France, very touristical.
Regarding music, there is an underground scene here but it is not the most famous place for grind. The most active scene takes place in the north of France.

2) WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BAND'S NAME?

2.At the beginning, when we were young, we wanted an extreme and at the same time funny name. At that time we were often watching trash films, that name came naturally. To-day we especially like the claiming tone of the name. Eating Shit is what men do everyday with TV, over consumption, GMO, meat industry etc…

3) HAVE YOU BEEN IN ANY OTHER BANDS BEFORE? WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO START YOUR BAND?

3.Braak and I played in groups of black metal until beginning of years 2000. Even though if Braak has a solo project of extreme metal (Empty Hope) and if I have registered an EP with the group of trash/death Backdawn (https://www.facebook.com/Backdawnofficial?ref=ts&fref=ts), Eating Shit is our real group.

4) WHO ARE THE MEMBERS? HOW LONG HAVE EATING SHIT BEEN GOING NOW?

4.We are 3 since 2008, when we chose the electronic drums, but we were more at the beginning, at that time we had a real beater. There was a 4 years stop between those 2 periods.

5) I MUST SAY YOU EXCELLENTLY GRIND AND PLAY YOUR MUSIC WELL MY FRIENDS. WHICH BANDS HAVE INFLUENCED YOU, AND WHO ARE YOU INTO AT THE MOMENT?

5.Thanks ! It’s a pleasure to read that ! The 3 of us listen nearly every style of extreme metal as well of other more gentle bands (reggae, rock etc…)

6) HOW MANY ALBUMS HAVE YOU RELEASED? PLEASE SHARE US EATING SHIT'S DISCOGRAPHY

6.For the time being we have 4 auto-productions : 2 of grind/crust (“Eating Shit” in 2003 and “world of shit” in 2004) and 2 of electro-grind (paradox in 2010 and bon app├ętit in 2011). We are presently registering a new album of electro black metal.

7) HAVE YOU PLAYED OUTSIDE FRANCE? ARE YOU FOCUS INTO EATING SHIT FULL-TIME OR DO YOU HAVE JOBS?

7.We played once in Geneva. All our other concerts took place in France, in various places but especially in our region. Eating Shit is a leisure, we are a small band, it would not be possible to live of it. Few metal bands can live from their music, thus it’s even worse for extreme bands !!

ARE THERE LOTS OF GRINDCORE AND EXTREME BANDS THERE IN YOUR SCENE? HOW ABOUT A PUNK CRUSTIES SCENE?

8.Yes there is a good scene in France with bigbands as Inhumate. I do not know very well crust/punk scene but in fact there are more and more bands of that kind.

PLEASE NAME SOME BANDS WE SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR...

As for grind I would mention especially the underground :
Glavio (http://www.bandmine.com/artist/music/glavio/1113575) Departement of Correction (https://www.facebook.com/departmentofcorrection?fref=ts) Injuria (http://www.myspace.com/injuriamusic) L.A.R.D.O.N. (http://crustgrind.wix.com/lardon)

9 ) ARE YOU GUYS VEGETARIANS? IS VEGANISM THE IDEAL TO ASPIRE TO?

9. I am the only vegetarian (and not vegan) of the band but as it’s me and our friend Blytch (https://www.facebook.com/Blytch1) who write the sentences, it shows through the texts.

IS ANIMAL RIGHTS AN IMPORTANT CAUSE? DO YOU SUPPORT THE ACTIONS OF THE ANIMAL LIBERATION FRONT
DO YOU JOIN MARCHES AND PROTESTS? (ALF)?

The respect of animal is very important for me and essential to allow human being to respect the human kind. I respect and support ALF , as well as other causes, as for instance the wolf defence. It came back naturally in France and is hunted and persecuted in spite of the European protection granted to that species. Consequently, I also join different associations who act against intensive breeding as well as protection of ecosystems…

10) DO YOU THINK MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGALIZED? OR IS IT LEGAL THERE IN FRANCE?

10. In France the use of Marijuana is not legal and is far to become legal. However there is no severe repression against smokers because France is one of the biggest European consumers, even before Netherlands (where it’s legal !). France being a great producer of wine, alcohol is easily consumed. If legalization could allow the end of black market and fight against mafioso it would be a good thing.
I have no doubt that encouraging young people to smoke is not a good thing for public health. We must not forget that it can become a real problem carrying study failure and social problems. I knew myself some cases. It’s as for everything in life, one must know how not to pass over some limits and this is not easy for everybody.

11) WHERE DO YOU RECORD YOUR SONGS? YOUR 2 ALBUMS "PARADOX" & "BON APPETIT" BLASTS OUT GREAT, DECENTLY EXCELLENTLY QUALITY RECORDED. MOST BANDS HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES CANT AFFORD COSTLY STUDIOS TO RECORD THEIR MUSIC.

11. We register ourselves our CD. The two last ones were mixed and masterised by Mulk (http://www.myspace.com/mulksong) who works in the rough electro grind. We had no means enough to register in a real studio and to make a professional press. We like auto-production, sympathetic products come out in that way. Thus they have a personal touch !!

12) DO YOU HAVE ANY OFFERS FROM BIG LABELS, WILL YOU SIGN IF APPROACHED? ARE YOU STILL PRETTY MUCH A SORT OF D.I.Y. BAND?

12. No, never, we are a little band and our grind style (electro) has not received real recognition. But it’s OK for us, we like being in the underground scene. Yes we are a DIY brand since the beginning, more than 10 years ago, and we are proud of it.

13) WHAT'S THE MOST INSANE GIG YOU HAVE BEEN TO SO FAR?

13. Our biggest live took place in Geneva, at Brutal assault 5 with Yacopsae and this year in Bordeaux (town of same name wine) at the Underground Blast Fest3 with the legendar Agathocles).

14) DO THE POLICE BOTHER YOU WHEN YOU HAVE SHOWS? HAVE YOU HAD ANY ENCOUNTERS WITH THEM?

14. No, in France we have a great artistical liberty and I never had any problem with police at any of the concerts to which I attended as spectator or player. One may be dressed, listen and think whatever he wants in our country.

15) FRANCE WAS RAVAGED BY TWO GREAT WARS, DO YOU AS PART OF THE YOUNGER GENERATION STILL FEELS ITS EFFECTS?

15.The 3 of us were born at the end of the 70ies/ beginning of the 80ies. Those who knew 2nd world war and the invasion of our country are our grandparents. Even if that period is taught to us at school, our generation does not feel very concerned with those two wars. Society changed so much and youth is so fed with this era of numerical leisure that those events seem very remote.

16) THE LEGACY OF HITLER IS STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE TODAY. NAZI SYMPHATIZERS, HATE GROUPS, THE KKK, AND RACIST BANDS PRETTY MUCH STILL EXIST TODAY. WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON THIS?

16. Unfortunately this vermin will always make part of life, whatever form or name it will take. Plenty of human beings are intolerant. Personally I never had problems with Nazis in France but I know that numerous skinhead groups are active in big cities. But it’s not a majority. Anyway, nothing to be compared with the Greece Golden Dawn for instance. There are some groups of NSBM but they are not as rough as in some eastern countries.
However we have a nationalist party named Front National who, under an apparent more moderated style, is anyway a fascism party. The worse is that it seduced part of the youth who begins to adhere to nationalist and identitary ideas instead of claiming, constructive and responsibly ones.

17) CAN WE EXPECT MORE FROM EATING SHIT IN THE FUTURE?

17. We have several projects under completion :
-An EP with a real drummer is completely registered and only waits to be mixed
- We are registering a CD “electro black metal” which will come out early 2013 and will be a little different from our usual style
-We also have another CD project with various invited who will take in charge the drums programmation.
-At last we are included in the new compilation “in Grindo Veritas” forecasted for beginning 2013, which groups about thirty of French bands. It’s kaotoxin label who initiated the project (https://www.facebook.com/kaotoxinrecords).

18) WHERE CAN THE READERS CONTACT YOU?

18. We can be contacted through

YOUTHFORCRUST INTERVIEW

INTERVIEW DONE BY PATRICK VERANO
for ChronicoreZine#7
sometime in 2006 !

1.what the hell does xyxfxcx stands for dude? aren't you guys got that name from a pastoral club?

Coni:

1st and foremost...i would like to introduce the Kids.... YFC is formed by 5 friends sharing the love of playing Fast Music. The Kids are Comprised of Drigo and Vincent on drunk vocals, guttwrenching screeches & fucked remarks, Mad Cao is stinking on his Bass and contributes to some noise conception, Coni is to blame for creating hipnotic noise with
Guitars and XJohnX is assighned as our Battering Drummer.

we all hail from the same shithole named Pag-Asa here in Imus, Cavite.

Some consider us Drugaddicts but were not all that. yes 4 of us takes alot of alcohol and drugs, yet we wont count out our straightedge drummer.

YFC?...youth for Clit!!! nyahahaha... thats why we named it after a Pastoral club so some religious people wont discriminate us. and think of the Respect we'll get from Religious groups. hahahaha!!! we were just playing with names... we would have named our band Just4Fun but the Christ gave us the Permission to use YFC.


Cao: YxFxCx stands for Youth For Crust.. I think, Warconi or/and Clyde could answer why Youth For Crust.

Drigo: Actually & Unfortunately it stand by your sick but initially it stands for "Youth4Crust". no we got our name accidentally.


2.how and where did you guys met? Who influenced you all to play and participate in this kind of scene? And who were the bands that inspired you all to make this xyxfxcx happen?

Drigo: We all met by destiny but eventually were all in the same neighborhood; Mary Jane is the main influence. Its not the band that inspired us but the alphabet that YFC is Originated from.

Cao: We live in the same neighborhood and we belong in a big circle of friends. Each of us have his own personal influences which brought us here together in the scene. YxFxCx's influences are Charles Bronson, What Happen's next, Spazz, some local bands like Aggressive Dog Attack and a lot more..

Coni: were all good friends and we all live and hang out in the same area. skateboarding is a big influence on them. I dont skate I just amusingly watched them from the sidelines smoking Dope, waiting for someone to get some air or getting neck breaking asphalt dive. The kids listen to a lot of What Happens Next?, Charles Bronson, Spazz, Capitalist Casualties, the oath and Yes, Slayer!!! Thus forming a strong pact. the rest of the guys I hooked up just because of drugs and alcohol.


3.are you all into drinking and taking mind altering substances?..

Drigo: Were just into drinking but were the drunk kings. Metamorpisis and Mary Jane, the double "M" in our lives except for our Drummer

Coni: Only Marijuana and Alcohol... no methamphetamines for me... is sex considered a mind altering substance???

Cao: Obviously the lyrics tackle more about on drugs, reality and Drigo's personal experiences in life. John Doe doesn't drink alcohol, doesn't smoke nor take drugs. Other than him, YxFxCx kids love beer and we smoke our insides.

4.how is driggo and his brigade doing nowadays?i heard he has dis alias of clyde?

is that his way of protecting his identity for some legal reasons?

Drigo:we are still recruiting new members or my brigade but were always still alive and moshing. For the record is just a split personality vice versa as Drigo. Drigos identity is protected by the Priory Of Sion.

Cao: HA!HA! I don't know what exactly Clyde A.K.A Drigo is doing nowadays aside from doing drugs everyday and getting drowned with alcohol as he fuckin' always. Maybe he stays with his family and raise his daughter..

Coni: Well, Drigo's name is Clyde. i think the one that named him Drigo was Mike Heart, The Termulator, coz when we were having a lot of gin at my place, clyde showed us his licence and we were laughing to our heart's content. Mike said "Drigong Drigo! parang huhulihin ka aagad pag nakita to ng Pulis" he's Picture looked like a generic drug addict straight from a pinoy action movie. well Drigo is A good Villain name by the way, doncha think?... nyahahahaha... that day Rodrigo Rodriguez was named.


5.i know hardcore punk/crust made a major influence to you guys..but were there

any other musical influences that made you guys create these trippy, catchy songs?

i mean were there any christina aguilera, britney or some pop shit that drove you to write those songs?

Cao: I'm gonna leave this question to Drigo. He might answer this question much better.


Drigo: Christina & Aguillerra and Britney are just our sexual influenced. But every member has its own influenced.

Coni: cum to think of it, id love to fuck those 2 pop sensations and record em on film and sell it to pirates. nah we just drank a lot of gin and Red horse. Plus the Hardcore/Punk Music we love to listen to. the Catchy Lyrics are Drigo's work. he's so wasted, he even got arrested for looking like a drugpusher of sorts, Illegal Face.hahaha.

this is Drigo's and Vincent's line of work. i only provide the fast guitar riffs. i Thank Drugs and alcohol, they are the greatest influence, 80% of us.

6.you know, i did some a little research on you guys and i learned that some of you guys, together with some of the nuclear punishers members, are in thesame college university.So how do you guys beat the crap out of school? do students there in your college university knew that you all are underground rock superstars? :-)

Drigo: long long time ago in a university far away. We Beat the crap out of them, we are still like Gods but not in a Rock superstar way.

Cao: We're just some ordinary college students. We go to school just to learn. only some of our closest school buddies know we're into this kind of stuff and we don't act like some underground rock superstars co'z we are really not.

Coni: i already Finished school, 7yrs of just pissing of professors and student councils. well its safe to say School is alot of fun but come to think of it you just dont need them. Self educate can suffice. reading and hands on experience is enough . Education and researching doesnt require you to pay thousands of pesos. the only thing i miss is the Girls in class, the Constant cheating on exams, smoking marijuana in the campus grounds, kicking Fraternity asses, drinking and fucking girls from other schools and the library(lots of free stuff, if you know what i mean). the only thing i hated in school was those fucking uniforms.

7.you guys are insane! very versatile and flexible and i don't complain on that. so how's it like playing in different circles of metal/crust/punk/hardcore gigs? where do

you feel more comfortable and fun? does hardcore appeal to you than metal?


Drigs: We never mind any gig whenever its hardcore/crust/punk or metal we just love to drink drunk punk everytime. When theres a gig and smoke weed everyday.

Cao: We really love to play with different kinds of crowd so, we will play anytime, anywhere as long as they want us to.. Drigo's word will continue to spread.

Coni: yea we've played with a lot of other scenes and places other than our local area of Cavite. i guess, yeah were flexible of sorts. and its fun it you think about it. Its Great to play at Metal scene Gigs, thanx to alot of metalhead friends and correspondents. and by playing in deifferent scenes we got to get to meet a lot of new people and make friends. Well, Hardcore/Punk and Metal really aint that different from each other, both are extreme and fun. We support the mixing of such scenes like what Roel Mores of Tripalium Zine is doing with the Rural Carnage shows to Mix the Mowhaks/Skinheaded HC/Punks and longhaired black donning Metal heads. the more diversity the better so the whole underground scene wont get lame and stagnant. A lot of respect is given by both scenes, Respect & Support matters a lot in the Underground scene.Did you guys also knew that weve been playing alot on Cavite City Kiddie Parties? the Cavite city Scene is somewhat comprised of a lot of kids nowadays. thay just lack the Hardcore/punk DIY Knowhows and ethics. A lot of education about the UG scene is needed. a lot of Rip-offs and Capitilism still rules there, stagnant sounds, thou some bands play their own songs, some still plays Cloned styles of their idols or they act like the bands they see on MTv. Thats why we want to play there to educate them (or to give them a culture shock they deserve)a bit that HardCore/punk is Fun and doing it DIY style is more than more fun...


8.if you would be given a chance to play in a band who plays brutal "disco" style gore,

would you grab it?

Drigs: no

Cao: Nope.

Coni:does it require us to play with Synthesizers and keyboards? no one in the band knows how to play those. for me ill stick to the Play Fast or Die attitude. i think Disco Gore wont fit in at all for me. I love Fast Aggressive music. we played with a band called pentavia and they sucked coz their drumbeats are somewhat pertaining to disco beats that dominates the nu metal scene in cavite and manila and the radio. there alot of Bands weve played with that fuses discobeats. well ithink this would appeal to the Female species but i wouldnt dare to think of doing it if it would compromise my love for Fast shit.


9.you guys have strong communications with rhe T4C mafia. I wonder, do they treat you with respect considering that they are sooooo furious about their straight edge movement? so how was that?

Drigs: long hair, short hair it all fits straightedge, curve edge its all the same.

Cao: Yes they do and we also respect them. Take 4 people are really good-hearted persons. They really are good friends of ours.

Coni: were all good friends with them so theres no problem. we are drunkasses and Druggies with a Fun Attitude. We dont Piss(that much) a lot of people in the scene. Our Drummer is Straightedge so we dont fuck with the sXe kids in the scene and even the T4C mafia. think of it, 4 of us druggies and a sXe drummer... how diversified we are. hehehe

all that matters is Friendship and Music. The T4C crew are old Buddies of ours so theres no misunderstanding on beliefs and lifestyles. respect for ones opinion dominates. ok nga yun e minsan nagfofood not bombs sila,yun yung direct action mostly ng mga sXe freinds. at dilang T4C na mga tropa ang straightedge, madami yan, kalatkalat. tropa naman e.

the only sucky part is that some people diss and disrespects bands/persons for their beliefs and lifestyles. I just hate Drunkasses acting like some oldschooler know-it-alls picking on kids new to the scene...hey guys we werent born all as we were, let the kids Have some fun!!!

10.amazingly,your song "ugat ng karahsan" has become the anthem of the crust/punk/hardcore kids. even metal heads like to singalong with you guys. how did you guys cameup with that song?


Drigs: its just a political song I dont know why they sing along with this, maybe because they can relate to what re are singin. I dont really know.

Cao: A rush product. Warconi did the Ugat ng Karahasan guitar riff on the same day we recorded the 7 songs for the compilation "This is CAVITE NOT L.A" with TAKE 4.
<BR>Coni:dont blame me, Blame Drigo and the rest of the guys...i wash off my hands on this topic. Hahahahaha nursery rhyme kasi ata talaga ung dating. Prang twinkle twinkle little slut. I just Made a 3 chord riff and a 2 chord riff for the fast shit wala e medyo kastama at pang psychedelic kasi yung gusto kong ingay nun parang pang pahilo. May kakambal yung kanta, yung Verum Song, its a 2 chord song and deals with drugs. Parang ang ugat ng kasamaan ay maiibsan lamang ng Droga. Hahaha combo lagi yun sa mga gigs naming pang praning kasi. E si Clyde praning hahahaha

11.just curious..is xYxFxCx's line up today consists of still original founding members?

Drigo: Yes and still Fighting for what we think is right and wrong.

Cao: John Doe and I weren't able to play with them during the YxFxCx's debut gig at Dasmari├▒as, Cavite.(Jegulo's Party).

Coni: Madami talaga kami, tropa talaga ang YFC since September 21, 2002. we let friends jam with us on gigs if ever one is absent or just plain wasted...Debut nga namin kami lang, clyde on vox, me on guitars and Vincent on Drums.. We are still The Kids from hell. minsan umuwi si drigo sa Cebu kaya si vicent yung pressed kumanta, minsan nakikanta narin ako para maingay. Minsan si Drigo lang wala si Vincent. Pero syempre pag pwede lahat, syempre mas masarap tumugtog ng lahat kayo andun, para kahit kainin si drigo ng moshpit tuloy tuloy parin ang ligaya.


12.i heard you guys are on the planning stage of releasing new shits? so what can we

expect on the next album of the xYxFxCx army?

Drigo: Someday well know, expect the un expected!!!

Cao: Unfortunately, we have insufficent funds. We are now accepting donations. (paging sponsors)

Coni: well weve been listening to alot of stuff now, back then i was drowned in What Happens Next and Charles Bronson, so we developed a Fun and Crusty style.. now ive been listening to alot of metal bands, thou i started from being a metal head, i guess a lil dash of metal wont hurt, ok just a bit. and to add up ive been listening to this Straightedge band called Good Clean Fun lately so i guess more of a Simple HC/Punk riffs pertaining to happy thoughts so it sounds fun to mosh to and so its energetic for us to play.and yes a lot of the still not so positive lyrics.


13.alrighty there! thanks for answering my silly questions! i hope you found my questions interesting!! much respect to the xYxFxCx kids!! specially of course, to you

BURAWIS! hehe.. now would you like to send some shout outs and guttural thanks to the people you missed to thank?

Drigo: Thanx to Da Vinci Code fro making me realize that we are all aliens.

Cao: SALAMAT!

EATING SHIT [France] - "Paradox" Album Review
Chronicore Zine 2012

   No comparison whatsoever but for the sickos out there just imagine yourself not playing with your balls but cruising along to the aggressiveness of those awesome legendary grindcore bands like Napalm Death with the added twist of listening to Solstice, just highlight the vocal parts minus the long guitar solos, replace with fast-phased grinding guitar tracks, some additional kick-ass samplers, and there you have it, a quick insight of this pure mind-blowing experience straight from France. Eating Shit's 24-tracks Paradox album is a killer must-have for grindcore freaks. The quality of the recording is great, and there is no question about the musicianship, this is no doubt a well-done job, pursuing artistry in the highest realm.

INDARKPURITY ZINE INTERVIEW
Chronicore Zine 2013


CHRONIC GREETINGS ! PLEASE TELL US YOUR NAME AND THE DETAILS OF YOUR ZINE.
- Hail Chronicore 'zine! Alex here of In Dark Purity 'zine. In Dark Purity 'zine is the embodiment of my passion for the music I love. The 'zine is in the traditional photocopied and stapled on the side format that features Underground Metal bands that I'm into.

WHAT  MOTIVATED YOU TO START PUBLISHING YOUR OWN ZINE?
- I just wanted to do more than just buying records and merchandise to support the bands that I'm into so I decided to do a 'zine.

HOW DID YOU COME OUT WITH THE NAME OF YOUR ZINE?
- My passion for Undergrond Metal is in dark purity!

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH A THEME FOR YOUR ZINE?
- Death Metal is the subgenre of Metal that I love the most which is why I mostly feature Death Metal in my 'zine.

WHAT ZINES INSPIRES YOU?
- There are a lot of 'zines that inspired and continue to inspire me, but In Dark Purity 'zine will not exist if it weren't for The Grimoire Of Exalted Deeds 'zine. Bill Zebub is God!

CAN YOU STILL REMEMBER YOUR VERY FIRST ROMANCE WITH A ZINE?  WHAT ZINE WAS IT?
- I honestly can't remember the very first 'zine I got my hands on, but for the first Metal 'zine, it's an issue of The Grimoire Of Exalted Deeds 'zine. My life was never the same after reading it. I love the 'zine's sarcasm and brutal sense of humor.

WHEN DID YOUR ZINE'S FIRST ISSUE COME OUT?
- I'm poor with dates, but it was most probably around 2000.

HOW MANY ISSUES HAVE YOU PUBLISHED SO FAR?
- I'm lazy. I have released six issues so far and I hope it's not the last!

IS YOUR ZINE FOR SALE/NOT FOR SALE/FOR TRADE?
- All of the above, but I prefer to trade it with amateur porn or panties of your significant other.

HOW DID YOU GET IT OUT THERE?
- Like the music that I support. I spread the 'zine to relevant channels in the underground.

WHO WAS THE FIRST BAND/PEOPLE YOU INTERVIEWED? HOW?
- The first band I interviewed was Internal Bleeding. I've been a fan of the band since the beginning and I have been in contact with Chris Pervelis for a long time and asked him if he would be down for an interview and he said yes. It was an honor.

HOW DO YOU GATHER AND ROUND UP CONTRIBUTORS?
- I don't because I do everything, but windows, hahaha! In Dark Purity 'zine is a reflection of my passion and I want it to be pure which is why I don't ask for contributions. The only contribution I have is in the sixth issue. Maija The Goatess sent me a story that fed my sick desires so I decided to publish it.

IT WAS A VERY LONG STRUGGLE, HOW HAVE YOUR POLICIES TOWARDS ADVERTISING AND REVIEWS CHANGED THROUGH OUT THIS YEARS?
- Indeed. Every issue is a struggle. As far as advertisement is concerned, I only publish the ones that has relevance to the music. I still love what I loved before and still hate what I hated before so my reviews will still be the same.

YOUR GOALS?
- To be able to release an issue whenever I can even if it takes me years to finish.

YOU ALSO HAVE YOUR OWN LABEL, CAN YOU ALSO SHARE THE DETAILS WITH US?
- I established Berdugo Records to further support the bands that I'm into. The label is dedicated exclusively to release records of bands from the Philippines.

As of this writing, we are preparing to release the Pus Vomit's "Stoned To Death" EP which should be out by January 2013 and Death After Birth and Surrogate Prey are currently recording at Demiurge Digital for the split CD.

WHERE CAN THE READERS CONTACT YOU?
