1.Bestial greetings from Peru grind maniacs from Plague Rages! hows going everything there!
Hello David and thank you very much for the opportunity to be interviewed for your zine, also hello to everyone who is reading this interview. For us Plague rages is very cool to be able to participate in your zine.
2.Plagues Ragues is a band from intense grindcore in the vein from old Napalm Death,Terrorizer,Nasum,tell us more how is form Plague Rages brother.
Well, the Plague Rages started in 1996, with influences from the bands you mentioned, especially the Napalm Death haha, we also had (and still have) influences from death metal, bands like Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, Death, etc. Over the years, our sound became more grindcore , especially after we heard Nasum ahahah. From the beginning we dedicated ourselves to put out a lot of material, doing many shows and always making new friendships.
3.How many stuff have edited Plagues Rage in his chaotic existence?
We released many, many materials in these more than 20 years of band, many splits, both cd's and vinis, tapes and also we released an EP via instagram in 2016 that I like a lot. The CDs and vinyls we have are:
PLAGUE RAGES/ SYNDROME OF TERROR – split 7” EP
PLAGUE RAGES/ LD50 – split 7” EP
PLAGUE RAGES – Eles vivem entre nos – 7” EP
PLAGUE RAGES/ SHITFUN – split 5”

PLAGUE RAGES/ FUCK – split CD
4 Ways to Grind - 4 way CD with NOIA, Baga and Cachorro da Duença
We have a lot of influences, besides musicals, we also like movies, our full lenght Apocalipse Iminente was entirely based on the movie "The 12 Monkeys", the EP "Eles vivem entre nós" was based on the movie "They live" we also like Comic Books, our Split with FUCK had the lyrics inspired by a Hulk comic book, the most part of our lyrics have an influence on this shit society that we live and its social problems.
5.Some member from Plague Rages have another proyect paralalell?
Yes, our bassist Kiko has many bands, he plays in a Post rock band called Labirinto, in a neo crust band called Reiketsu, in a crust band called Rastilho (with former members of Abuso Sonoro) and our drummer Douglas has a Death metal band called Infinity Horror and also plays in Into the End, band that our ex- bassist Antonio (who unfortunately died in 2015) founded .
6.Wich is your opinion about the actual grindcore scene around the world?
I think we are in a very good moment, there are many bands around the world producing quality material, an example of this is the Obscene Extreme festival that has existed for more than 15 years and where more than 60 play pass every year.
7.You know some from extreme scene from Southamerica? maybe Perú?
Of course, we have a very strong scene in South America (and in Latin America too), our two full lenghts were released by the Latin Core of Ecuador, we have a split cd with the Colombians from the band Fuck (Which was released by a label from Costa Rica), we have already done a tour in Chile, we have a split tape with a band from Costa Rica (SRT), that is, we have a lot of contact with bands and labels from Latin America and South America From Peru I know the band SFC, they have already done two tours in Brazil and have a very good Split cd with the Brazilian band NOIA. What I think we need more is to unite to make our scene as strong as that of Europe, we have a very large continent and I believe our exchange can improve.
8.Plague Rages stuff avaliable?
At the moment we have a new shirt and also a 4 way cd with the bands Plague Rages, NOIA, Baga and Cachorro da Duenca, this cd is a homage to our brother Antonio, former bass player of Plague Rages who died in 2015.
9.Morbid future plans in Plague Rages?
We are doing a full lenght new that will be called Hecatombe and also sounds for future splits.
