Carnival Slaughter (Slam / Technical Death from Casablanca, Morocco)

Official Facebook Page - http://www.facebook.com/CarnivalSlaughter

Biography :- We're Carnival Slaughter, a Slam/Technical Death Metal band from Casablanca!
We started this year when Aissam and Zakaria who played together in another band met up with Mehdi ,Haytam and Idriss decided to form a Slam band cause there is none in Morocco and after a while we started playing Technical Death Metal aswell!

Sharing the same influences we entered the studio to record our EP wich will come out next month. Eargasming guarranted!

As for our lyrics themes, we talk about gore, murder, rape, necrophilia. Yeah we're that fucked up.

Jonathan - What makes a good Death metal band?
Aissam - Good riffs , infernal drumming ,deep vocals, meaningful lyrics.. The real question is what makes us special! Brotherhood.
Jonathan - What's your opinion of the DIY movement?
Dani - We are very supportive to the DIY movement, cause if you want to get something done, you better get your ass up and work for it!
Jonathan - I really believe the only passionate way to do music is with your heart. But sometimes hard times and trouble can get in the way. Why is it so important for you to be in a band and do you have any funny stories to tell?
Aissam & Dani - That's true. And it is so important for us to be in a band cause we get to do what we love! Not for money nor fame, just for the hell of it! Cause we don't really feel comfortable unless we're jamming together and making sick shit!
Jonathan - What's the origin of the band name, Carnival Slaughter?
Aissam - To be honest, we don't even know! We were heading for rehearsals and thinking of a name for the band! Then Mehdi (i.e our drummer) came up with the name.. That's it.
Jonathan - Have you changed the band's name before?
Dani - No, we sticked to this name.(Why?) Cause it's cool. *laughs*
Jonathan - Who are your major influences? Or do you just write what you like and that is the result?
Dani - Concerning the lyrics we just bring our psychopart and start writing. We also have a lyrics writer.
Jonathan - How long have you all known each other?
Aissam - A year!
Jonathan - How did you meet?
Aissam - Me and Zakaria (i.e the guitar player) used to play with another band, and we met the others in ARTLESS.
Jonathan - When did you form your band?
Aissam - This last summer.

Jonathan - What inspired you to make music together?
Aissam - We share the same influences and cause there are no other Slam bands in Morocco.
Jonathan - Im sure some countries or crowds are more enthusiastic than others, do you have any particular anecdotes to tell us? Any funny moments? Disappointments?
Dani - Concerning the crowd, we have an "ok" amount of true metalheads and supportives! But we hope it'll get bigger with time, we just have to keep the flame alive. (Funny moments since we formed the band: Our first song 'I am nature's curse' was recorded in a coffee shop with only our guitars and a laptop!)
Jonathan - Which songs do you perform most frequently?
Dani - Till now we have never been on stage, cause the metal scene in Morocco is facing huge challenges. We hope that we'll get to share our music live! And we're planning on doing some covers like Carnifex songs...
Jonathan - Who writes your songs?
Dani - These two questions have been already answered..
Jonathan - What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
Dani - Rape, Gore, Murder.. Told you we're sickos! *laughs*. We also talk about phylosophy.
Jonathan - Do you think these topics will change over time?
Dani - Hell no.
Jonathan - Could you briefly describe the music-making process?
Dani - We work with lots of softwares and our instruments, that's just it!
Jonathan - What are your rehearsals generally like? Do you have a set time each week in which you practice or are rehearsals more spontaneous?
Aissam - We're all students. So when it comes to rehearsals we always set up a time when we're free then gather in Casablanca city!
Jonathan - How has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?
Dani - Who the hell knows, it's up to the fans to decide if we evolved or not. We just do our thing man, music.
Jonathan - What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Dani - Not having where to record, attracting more crowd and convincing more than half the country that what we're doing has nothing to do with Satan WHOREshipping. We're still working on this.
Jonathan - What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?
Dani - Do it for music, and do it for the next generation! Challenges will only make you stronger. So don't bow in front of the wind just face it with a big FUCK YOU.
Jonathan - For those who don’t know you, How can fans-to-be gain access to your music? Do you have a website with sample songs or a demo CD?
Dani - Currently all of our music is free and on Youtube!
Jonathan - Do we anyone to thank for the support?
Dani - Hell yeah, we want to thank our buddy Eddie Pickard from the band Infant Annihilator. Anass El Baraka our lyrics writter. Rak Hiasat from MetalStorm. Metal Messiah radio DJ's! JorZine. Lead Hangar Fanzine. All the fans and brothers. You!! And ourselves! (We're cocky bastards).
