1.Loud greetings of Perú,Jay! How going the things in Sidetracked?
Things are good! 2018 was our most prolific year by far with 12 releases. We have a lot lined up for 2019 as well included our long awaited full length "Hollowed Out".
My name is Jay and I started the band in 2000 as the lead singer and songwriter. At the time we started, the big influences were Chain of Strength, Capitalist Casualties and countless 80's hardcore bands. Theres been a lot of lineup changes but the other main guy on the recordings was Brian Skiffington who played drums. He left the band this year. I've been playing guitar and singing live since 2010. Our bassist Andrew Gentz has been in the band 9 years and has played on a few recordings but mainly I handle vocals, guitar and bass.
To date, Sidetracked has 41 releases currently. We have done:
16 standalone cds
4 standalone 7"s
6 standalone tapes
Split cds with God's America and Gorgonized Dorks
Split 7”s with: Summer League, In Disgust, Hummingbird of Death, Self Inflicted, Gaz-66 Intrusion, To The Point, Rabid Pigs and Scum Human.
Split lps with Gride and Dead Radical
Split tapes with Limbs Bin, Violent Opposition, and Disparo.
The biggest influences would be No Comment, Lack of Interest, Capitalist Casualties, Straight Ahead/NYC Mayhem, Nihilist Commando, 7 Minutes of Nausea, Negative Approach and Sissy Spacek.
5.Some members of Sidetracked have another proyect paralell?
Me and the bassist, Andrew Gentz, also play in the hc punk band Victims Panel (no recordings yet) The other bands I played in before this that have records released are Bookburner and Sojourner. Andrew has plays (or played) in Criminal Code, White Wards and Negative Press. Our former drummer Brian played in Sojourner, Owen Hart (now called Earth Control), Shore, and Dead Weight. Our current drummer Mike Doherty also plays in Hummingbird of Death and Upinatem.
6.Jay,explain some more about the actual powerviolence grindcore scene of your city and recommend some bands.
Some cool powerviolence bands from the Seattle area would be Savage and Regional Justice Center.
7.Sidetracked knows the powerviolence grindcore scene of Southamerica?
I know next to nothing about powerviolence from South America. I like some grindcore/noisecore stuff from Brazil like Rot (especially A Long Cold Stare), Noise and Industrial Holocaust. As for bands from Peru specifically, I've heard a little bit of stuff like Atrofia Cerebral and Audicion Irritable.
8.Stuff avaliable of Sidetracked at the moment? where the grinders can find the stuff?

1.Loud and intense greetings of Perú,Terry! How going the things in Come To Grief?
Hello thanks for the interview I appreciate it! Things are going well,we played some really good shows this year. We're taking a break from live performances to work on new material.
2.Tell us how is form this chaotic band of raw sludge doom stoner called Come To Grief? Hows been the begings?
I've been playing this style of music since 1991 when I formed my original band Grief. The music has come very naturally. Things that frustrate me and piss me off have been the catalyst for playing this violent stuff!! Everyday bullshit.
3.Discography of Come To Grief?
Come to Grief has a 12" 4 song e.p. called "the worst of times " that came out in 2017 on Fuck Yoga records from Macedonia. We Also have a split 7" with Fistula that came out in late 2017 on Patac records.
4.Influences at Come To Grief?
Saint Vitus has always been a very big influence on us. Winter from New York as well and of course Black Sabbath.
5.Some members of Come To Grief have another proyect paralell?
Our bass player Tim is currently in a grind band I am not sure of the name. I was in a band called Conclave for the past couple years but I chose to leave and concentrate on CTG.
6.Terry explain some more about the actual sludge doom stoner scene from your city and recommend some bands.
I live in Southern New Hampshire/u$a the largest city is Manchester and we have an excellent Doom/death/sludge/grind scene here! Some notable bands are Boghaunter (atmospheric doom) Angel Morgue (brutal death metal). There's many more!
7.Come To Grief knows the death doom sludge scene of Southamerica?
Yes we are very aware of the metal scene all throughout South America! I have always been a big fan of Sarcófago, Mystifier,Pentagram (Chile) Masacre (Colombia), etc. Very important music. We would love to play anywhere in South America.
8.Stuff avaliable of Come To Grief at the moment? where the maniacs can find the stuff?
We have plenty of stuff available on bandcamp. Our shirts are available though Deathwish records. The Come to Grief split 7" can be obtained from Patac records and Fuck Yoga records from Macedonia still has "The Worst Of Times " available.
9.Morbid future plans?
Currently we have no live performances until 2019 we are working on new material over the winter. We hope to have a full length album and a couple of split records out next year. We are playing Maryland Death Fest in 2019 and are working on a few more festivals.
10.Last words Terry and thanks for your time in this interview.
I thank you very much David for the interview and support!! It is a great opportunity for me to convey my thoughts to fans and friends in Peru! We would love to play Perú someday and other countries throughout South America. All the best.
1.Noisy greetings of Perú,Felipe! How going the things in Rot?
Greetings from Brazil, David. Well, we are playing in some gigs and writing new songs. Last year we recorded three songs. They are avaiable on Youtube as a virtual EP named "Worshipping their own chains". We are going to play at Obscene Extreme in 2019, and we are very happy because of this.
2.Rot is a old school band of intense and loud grindcore;Give us a trip by the chaotic existence of Rot!
Rot plays since 1990. I was five years old in 1990, then I didn't hear Rot in this time... hahaha Would be better if you ask to Mendigo, the foundator. He would have a lot of stories to tell you about Rot. I am in the band since 2016, it's very recent. But take the road with this guys is always very nice.
3.Discography of Rot?
Rot released a lot of albuns, tapes, splits with bands like Agathocles, Intestinal Disease, Subcut, Entrails Massacre, Wojczech, Yacopsae and others. The first record was the tape "Prisoner of my fear", in 1991. The full albums are "Cruel Face of Life" (1994), "Sociopathic Behaviour" (1999), "Your lie is gone - Your day has come" (2002), "A long cold stare" (2003). There is a lot of compilations in tape and CD, like "Old Dirty Grindcores".
There are lots of influences, all bands that we heard, grindcore or not grindcore, are influences to us. I like Agathocles and old Napalm Death, but I don't hear modern grindcore, or death-grind. I could say many bands, but I don't know if the other guys would agree with my choices... hahaha I think Hiatus and old Celtic Frost are greats influences. And the obvious: Discharge, Anti Cimex.
Yes. Alex plays at Cruel Face. Emiliano plays at Skarnio. Henrick plays at Xico Picadinho and Trassas. I play at Fear of the Future and Stench of Death. In the moment, Mendigo is the only member that doesn't play in other bands.
6.Felipe explain some more about the actual grindcore scene from your city and recommend some bands.
São Paulo has a lot of grindcore bands. There are many gigs, and we always play with other bands grindcore or crust. Specifically in the grindcore genre, I'd say that some great bands in activity at São Paulo are: Obitto, Western Day, Dead Cops, Banni Conflict, Plague Rages, Subcut. In Brazil there are great grindcore bands, you know, like Expurgo, Facada, Lepra.
7.Rot knows the grindcore of Peru?
Honestly, I know SFC, because they were on tour at São Paulo recently. They are amazing. I've started to follow your zine, and I hope to know other bands from Peru there.
8.Stuff avaliable of Rot at the moment? where the grinders can find the stuff?
Well, the most recent material is avaible on Youtube, the EP "Worshipping their own chains". The EP "Nowhere" is still avaiable on vinyl, tape and CD. You can write to Bucho Discos and ask him about other materials.
We want to record new songs in 2019. Maybe a EP or a LP, we don't know yet. But we are writing the songs, and we will have news soon.
Thank you so much for the interview, nice to meet you and nice to know your zine. I hope we can play at Perú soon, why not? Keep the grindcore live, see you around
