1.Annihilator greetings Steve from Peru! How is everything in Abaddon Incarnate?
All is good man, we recently have a massive line up change, which is leaving us all very excited for the future. We lost our drummer and bass player and now we have Irene and Karl on board also we have a new vocalist Wayne, Last year we did a cool tour of Russia, Sicily and UK and we play Grindcore family festival in Copenhagan in October. We are currently booking a Spanish/ Portuguese Tour for November and we also are booking a Australian Tour fro March 2017. As well as this I am writing so much grindcore at home we should have enough material for a new release at the end of the year hopefully. Things have never been so busy for us.
2.Tell us how is formed this brutal band from twisted brutal death grind called Abaddon Incarnate?
We started as a death metal band in 92 but started using blast beats in 94 and changed the name to abaddon incarnate, we were heavily influenced by morbid angel/ immolation/ brutal Truth/ terroroizor/ Napalm death and Entombed. Also we worshipped the Grindcrusher Earache compilation that was out back then. We wanted to be a very agressive, extreme band with no compromise fuck everybody attitude, Over the years we become more and more grindcore than death metal. For example working with Miezsko from nasum and the 2nd and 3rd album really focused our shit on Grindcore more than metal. Our songs were shorter and more to the point, less is more, intensity of delivery is more important than 5 min songs.
3.How many chaotic stuff have Abaddon Incarnate?
5 cds, and a split, but we only promote the post 2009 stuff now, cascade (09) pessimist (14) and the split with Phobia (11).
Nowadays I listen to stuff like Obituary (Slowly we rot), Nihilist/Entombed, heresy, siege, cretin, brutal truth, famine, brinskil bombbeat ( escape to ob city ) , strieknien dc ( cash factory ), kyuss ( all ), possessed ( 7 church/ beyond the gates ), pestilance ( only demo tapes) Voivod ( war and pain ) Godflesh ( Streetcleaner ) Napalm Death ( lee dorain / steer stuff is my fave ) nuclear assault ( survive ) Im pretty much stuck in the past.
5.I know what Abaddon Incarnate had a some shows here in Peru,tell us more about that? is was a good and brutal experience?
Yeah we played so many shows, Chiclayo, Trujillo, Huancayo, Lima, Ayacucho, Tacha, Juliaca and Cusco. It was organised by Guts and Blood zine and we had a awesome time. We played two shows in Lima, a punk festival and a metal festival, the Punk fest was a better athmosphere. So next time we come we want to play more Punk shows If they will have us, but the people there in South America were very friendly and energetic, crazy mosh pits and headbanging all the time. South america has a such a nice spirit, everybody is on a cool wavelength and we had a great 6 weeks in our part of the world. We played Colombia and Ecuador on that Tour also.
I will give a passive agressive answer, I am very depressed and fucked off with the politics in the metal scene, but I wont go into details, because I want to keep Abaddon a non political band. In a perfect world there would only be music, no fashion, no trends, no sheep, just grinding blasts.
Karl ( drums ) plays in a cool death metal band called Coscradh. You can worship their awesome demo here for free https://soundcloud.com/invictusproductions/sets/coscradh-demo-mmxvi
Wayne ( vocals ) plays in several bands, Nembutal ( grind/powerviolence ) https://nembutal.bandcamp.com/ Also Slow plague (https://slowplague.bandcamp.com/) are just two.
8.How is the brutal and extreme scene in your city/country? recommend me some bands.
My fave band at the moment is Surge ( noisy gay punk ) https://surgepunx.bandcamp.com/ steve finnerty who used to play in abaddon does now and its pretty extreme stuff. In Ireland in the metal scene, the cavernous death metal thing is big now, so succesfull bands are Malthusian, ZOM, Viroclac and recently coscradh are the new guys, Its good stuff, but Im moving away from that kinda stuff Im more into raw/ harsh music, ZOM Are pretty cool live, great swing and punch, but the tape is a bit too much reverb bath, I havnt seen Viroclac live yet but the tape is nice. And I already gave you a link to Coscradh.
Then we have the brutal Death metal guys who are another scene, Putrefy, Oncology, Skewerd, Zombified off the top of my head. Putrefy have been going a very long time Nearly 25 years I think, They recently had a line up change as well and have been working hard so expect some new stuff from them soon. Oncology Is a new brutal DM project that offshot from Putrefy, a cool band with a lot of great ideas but they need a real drummer, the drum machine is not great, shame becuase the riffs and vocals and guitar bits are cool. If your ever in the UK and get a chance to watch Zombified, they will rip your face off man, devestatingly brutal tight live act,
Then of course, a cool grind band at the moment called Unyielding Love ( https://unyielding-love.bandcamp.com/album/demo-2015 ) These guys could be huge, they tour their ass off and they have the right sound and attitude for the modern grind scene.
then a bunch of black metal and doom which I dont listen to. So I cant comment.
9.Destructive plans for the future in Abaddon Incarnate?
Well I coverd that earlier haha, so Tour, Record, and we will return to Peru in a year or two and hopefully we can share a rum and coke in Lima.
