1.Funeral greetings of Perú,Barrett! How going the things at Capitalist?
Hey, Barrett, vocals for Capitalist here! We're stoked to talk to some fellow grinders/maniacs from a different part of the globe! 2019 is so Far a big year for Capitalist,we released our first proper Recording , the ep "2019", and booked some awesome shows coming up, and were gearing up to play our first big fest "Shadow Frost metal Fest" early next year. This project is constantly building on bones of previous work and we're seriously stoked to see it grow!
2.Tell us how is form this chaotic band of raw grind powerviolence with influences of darkness called Capitalist? Hows been the begings? Capitalist is formed out of the ashes of a past project (we're old vets of the punk and metal scene), a blackened dbeat/raw punk band that i guess "ran its course". We toured, and wrote a few albums and as we were evolving our sound a founding member left to persue other projects. The rest of us Decided thiswas a perfect oppurtunity to really go in a new harsher, more grind/powerviolence sound that was free to explore some different themes lyrically and aestheticly. Previously we had used tropes of satanic imagery, sleaze rock , and typical punk rock formatted songs, which we felt we had taken to its limits. We then decided we were now free to write songs with a more grind approach,( faster, heavier, less melodic)and grow our themes to include darker esoteric chaos magic, true cult-minded real life violence, and the actual geo-political evil that exists in the world being committed by our so called "fellow man".
3.Infernal discography of Capitalist?
Currently we have our new release "2019" and some earlier demo material up on https://capitalist.bandcamp.com
4.Aberrant influences at Capitalist?
We draw our musical influence from alot of sources, a list would be huge haha so ill just name a few of the top of my head, Craft,Converge, Nifelheim, Slayer, Mortician, and Disfear. We all bonded over mutaul like of hardcore, thrash, dbeat, and blackmetal and I feel like that all comes across in our music.
5.Some members of Capitalist have another proyect paralell?
I have a noise/goth/synth/wave and video solo project called "Wrists" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29pNgMJY0EQ) with a few releases, and our drummer Mike has a whole other band called "Endless Teeth (https://www.facebook.com/Endlessteethnj) which is more like post metal/hardcore, him and i also have a harsh noise/space jazz project called "Drug Cage". We're busy dudes haha.
6.Barrett explain some more about actual grind powerviolence scene from your city and recommend some bands.
We're truly lucky to be based out of Philadelphia, it has one of the best most inclusive and varied music scenes on the east coast of the US. On any given night theres a good chance theres a punk/metal/grind/hardcore/hiphop/electronic show happening somewhere between house venues and the plethora of dives and bigger venues.Im from a shitty suburb in New Jersey, so as i get older i really appreciate how cool the scene in Philly is!
Not really but we're always stoked to make new friends and learn about cool new bands! We played with these dudes "Betrayer" from Columbia once, i wonder if they're
