Bloodattack Interview

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?

Bloodattack was formed 2004, with members from

GOMORRHA (r.i.p. - hater of god records)

CREUTZFELD (r.i.p. - bastardized recordings)

RISE ANEW (r.i.p. - bastardized recordings)

to keep the d.i.y.-spirit and the fundamental idea in our music alive. 
In contempt to our influences of metal our keynote is based in 
punk-rock-attitude and so are the basic contents of BLOODATTACK: we are 
fighting active against rascism, support the d.i.y.-attitude through the 
organising of concerts in our hometown, stopping the exploiding of bands 
and our scene through capitalistic oriented media concerns, taking place 
in d.i.y.-organisations, cooperate with the anti-facist movement and and 
much moreâŠ. So we spend lots of time in this band -not to get a rich 
and famous mainstream-chapel who changes sound, style and members like 
their pants â just because we are 5 friends with the same batshit 
thoughts and idea of being a part of a band: BLOODATTACK would rather 
not exist in a scene of people who see nothing more in punk and hardcore 
than a rebelious part of adolecence and wearing clothing that differs 
from the norm only for show -  we try to keep and bring back  the main 
idea and keep every part of our work autonomous (music, recordings, 
artwork, merchandise, lyrics, concerts, tours ....)-  free from the 
influences of external voices. We cooperate with friends and people we 
trusting in to save the one and only spirit of BLOODATTACK.

2. How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it
differs from previous efforts?

Bloodattack. playing Hardcore with a metallic touch of bullshit. We try 
to keep our sound authentic, harsch, cold and brutal. Our sound is not 
made for the masses â it represents our taste of music and our point 
of view â so the most of our fans and followers love bloodattack for 
their charisma: To be true, authentic, mean and different.

  3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores
with the new release?

Our lyrics (composed in german and english)  turn on our perspective on 
our society, humanity, our scene and the bullshit that surrounds us in 
the day-to-day-fight with ourselves and the rest of this world - 
formulated direct and ruthless to show forthright the fucked-up facts to 
the subjects and open their closed eyes. Maybe we can change 
something â maybe we can change nothing - but to stand back and 
watching the perish of hc and approving the perversations of humanity is 
not our kind of lifestyle.

Not like you â denn ich bin nicht wie duâŠ.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?

BLOODATTACK is the name of the creature that will release our planet 
earth from the tumor called humanity to loose all other races and 
species from the opression and torure of mankind. The rise of the 
Alphakiller. Amen.

  5. What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and
how would you describe your stage performance?

The best show ever was our first releaseparty 2006 for our bor out of 
ases ep â in a small youth-club in the heat of the summer. We sold 
lots of shirts, ep´s and beer. We did it al d.i.y.

The best thing you can do in this times of commercial overdose.

  6. Do you have any touring plans for the future?

This year we´ll start 3 tours: with Maintain, Bazooka Zirkus and Mind 
Plague. All friends of us â we love the small shows in rancid clubs 
with warm beer and sweaty bodies everywhere!

7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your newer music by
fans of hardcore and metal?

To our last release the feedback was great. We had 10 from 10 points by 
time for metal, 8 from 10 by allschools, obliveon, cdtests, stormbringer 
and moreâŠ.. But we have our own view about the scene of today: The 
fundemental beliefs of the scene in which I participate are dying and 
are being pushed to the margins by commercialism, obsession with 
fashion, and constantly changing trends. This is not the community in 
which I would like to be identified. For my part DIY, anti-facism, 
belief in animal rights, together with a common will and dedication to 
the realization of this goal, are the main priorities for our scene. 
These days âpay to playâ, 360 degree record deals, exclusion of 
bands by their booking agents, suffocation contracts, and much more are 
all standard practice with the bands getting hardly any support. The HC 
lifestyle for me is not only being able to invest the most energy 
possible into changing a situation and living with an autonomous 
concience determined by myself, but also having the right to be heard in 
the face of opposing movements. I feel I belong in a strong community 
that shares these priorities â so we don´t care about the worldwird level.

  8. Are there any other musical projects or is this a full time line up?

Bloodattack was, is and will ever be in this constellation. Daniel is a 
part of Bastardized Recordings, we´re organzing shows for bands in our 
hometown etcâŠ. That´s enough for us â we´re always busy and have 
enough to do.

9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

We´ll resume the sound and attitude of Alphakiller: rough, harsch, 
snotty and brutal.

10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your
  music and also what are you listening to nowadays?


11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?

We stay true to our motto: drink â fight â fuck.

  12. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?

  Burn down all non-attitute-slaves -  BLOODATTACK.
