Eheh, we fought a lot to finish this record, especially for the sound and the final master. We’ve spent plenty of time to make a good recording and songwriting, and that thing needs more beers and a lot of broken glasses, but in the end we’re satisfied for the result. Rotten Roll Rex and Marco did the rest, and we are very proud to join his family, thanks Kunz!
2.In December you had released a new album, how would describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
Basically, the sound is not that different between the other records, it’s just more studied, but it's the same shit. Rough, brutal, direct, and Valerio of Hombrelobo Studio made a great job!
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Ahah, like question number 2, our lyrics are not in continue “evolution”, we can answer you like Metal Archives… Alcohol, Sex, Bud Spencer! And a little bit of action movie violence, we’re not so serious, we like to joke and make our listeners have fun.
4.Originally the band was known as 'Southern Brewtality', what was the cause of the name change and also the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Southern Drinkstruction'?
In 2005, we wanted to choose a name with the word “Southern”, because of deep south of Italy origins of the founding members, and another word to explain our passion for beer. We tried "draught", "malt", "spaghetti", "brewtality" and many other funny names; and when we chose “Brewtality”, here arrives on the myspace page a mail from another band from U.S.A., with telephone number of their lawyer, and the threat of take legal ways, we said… fuck you, and we chose a better one: Drinkstruction.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Sure the last one in Switzerland, at Infected by Lepra Blues Death Fest, and also the gigs spent together with big bands like Obituary, Entombed and Asphyx, but we always enjoy the stage in every place, small clubs or big shows, for us it makes no difference. We try our best, in every situation, we think that live performance is the most important thing for a band, we don’t record anything that is non reproducible on stage, today everyone can do an album.
6.Do you have any touring plans or shows lined up for the new album?
Usually we plan single gigs, or two in one weekend, on may we'll be playing in Belgium and we have some concerts around the Italy, but we can treat any offer, so… call us because we’re always boner and ready to change your life with the best show ever seen!
7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
For someone we are too “Rock” for Death Metal, for others we are too brutal for Rock ’N’ Roll, but many people follow us and like our stuff, fortunately, many reviews are positive. Southern Drinkstruction is an hybrid with lots of contamination, from Grind to Blues, from Death Metal to Southern Rock, mixed up with Doom and Thrash, and who really understands that appreciates it a lot.
8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
All of us today have side projects, in Rome we have a lot of friends and “musicians” and a new band can being established at the table of the Pub. Our other projects represents that we listen every kind of music, Ordnal plays Electronic Music (Primitive in the Extreme) and Gabber (Justice Plague), Eddie also plays Country, but basically we are metal heads, Corpsefucking Art (were Basthard & Eddie play) is a Brutal Death Band, made of good friends; Zorro plays in a Heavy Stoner Band (Chronic Hangover) and also in a bunch of rudes called Underball. Finally, we’re always busy.
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
At Super Bowl halftime show like Lady Gaga, flying and puking and farting all over the people, but also Oktoberfest is in our plans.
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Are you ready for the most long list of bands of your life? Really, we listen to everything, check out our cover of Zuppa Romana, from a german band called Schrott Nach 8. Our influences in Southern Drinkstruction can be simplified in Death-Doom, Thrash, Brutal and fucking Rock ’n’ Roll. We prefer to go back in time in music interests, we grew up with old school stuff, and we love the music from the past.
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
I can answer you with things like Design, Art, Motorbikes, Cinema, Literature, Craft Beer, but the reality is Pussy, pussy, and pussy yet.
