A WILHELM SCREAM interview

by marcs77

The heroes of melodic hardcore punk with the heart into complexity and technique are back with a new album, their sixth in a career spanning over 14 years, entitled “Partycrasher” -well, sure that's nothing new to most of you guys being the record out since last November 5th, 2013.
As far as Italy goes, and it's really a pity pointing this out, A WILHELM SCREAM haven't made it to breaking in the league of the four-horsemen-of-punk-rock-band-to-be-booked-to-headline-major-gig-festivals (and who are these fab four? Nofx, Rancid, Pennywise, Ska-P) but they get either to open for bigger names or headline small sized venues like it's the case tonight here in Milan, in the smaller dive of Forum's building. Again I know that sucks alot! But who's to blame? Organizers who wanna play safe or kids who don't move to go out to a show where no-big-names are headlining?
We set down with Trevor Reilly (guitar and shredding) before the show to talk about “Partycrasher” and a good bunch of other interesting shit.

Birmingham's NAPALM DEATH will never set back with their struggle to speak out against the harm perpetrated by greedy few upon poors, unpriviligedand disadvantaged groups and with a brand new album coming out end of January 2015 the foursome proves, whether necessary, there's still a lot to speak out against 33 years into their career.

Having just wrapped up a tour through Japan, UK Grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH are now launching the cover artwork and the tracklisting for their upcoming 15th studio album. Entitled “Apex Predator - Easy Meat”, the album will be released on January 26th, 2015 in Europe and January 27th, 2015 in North America via Century Media Records.

The album’s striking artwork, which can be seen above, was created by Danish designer Frode Sylthe / Friktion.com, who has previously worked on NAPALM DEATH’s latest album “Utilitarian” as well as with bands such as At The Gates, Totalt Javla Morker, The Haunted or Burst.

Terror/Comeback Kid/Stick to Your Guns/Obey The Brave/More than Thousand/No Bragging Rights/Capsize. Impericon Never Say Die Tour 2014, Bologna 20th of November 2014

by Marcelo

“Too much breakdowns” this is how this festival should be called, but we’ll come to this later.

I left for Bologna early but due to traffic issues I couldn’t catch nothing more than the last couple of song of CAPSIZE, playing in the almost empty venue. I got to suspend my opinion on this young guys, but I got to say they try to difference themselves with some delayed guitars from the classic metal core stuff but they hardly succeed.
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS was one of the bands I wanted to catch and they didn't disappoint.

The more recent release of the punk trio is the album "Wildfire" out last year through Epidemic records.
As you can read here below The Smashrooms will be playing 3 farewell shows; one in Italy (tomorrow night close Milan) and two in Germany.

Here’s the word from the band...
