Interview with Regicide




Official social links of Regicide
facebook- Regicide

Asmita - First of all, thanks a lot for interview, so what are you really looking forward from Nepali underground scene?    

Sudarshan - We have heard that the Nepali underground scene is savage and absolutely loves its extreme metal. We are looking forward immensely to rocking out with Nepali metalheads to our brand of Old School death metal and we hope that they'll give it all their energy. 


Asmita - Can I get the short biography  of your band? And what is the meaning of Regicide exactly means to the band?

Sudarshan: Regicide was formed in early 2017 by Sudarshan and Sonaksh as an Old School death metal act drawing influences from Bolt Thrower, Massacre, Unleashed, Cancer etc. The sound of the band is constantly changing and evolving into a more and more savage embodiment of the OSDM genre. The word 'Regicide’ literally means overthrowing of a throne by conspiracy, which in the wider sense, signifies that support of the ruled is vital for the ruling. 


Asmita - What are the lyrical themes you use in your songs? gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..

Sudarahan : Regicide’s lyrical themes are mostly based on Warfare, terrorism, Mythical battles and myths, Religious propoganda etc. 



Asmita - How it feels to be in a Underground band? And what’s your message to underground community?

Sudarshan: The underground community remains underground only because of the lack of support of those who profess their love for it. Our message to the underground fans would be to wholeheartedly support what they love to see it grow, because they are the building blocks of the underground. 


Asmita - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?

Sudarshan : Conservative society has its reasons and reservations, however biased, against extreme metal acts and the genre that encompasses these acts. Extreme metal represents conveying emotions and veracious thoughts that are not subject to censorship and screening. It is a society of its own that believes in no discrimination. So the thoughts of any other society about extreme metal is irrelevant.


Asmita - Can you recommend us some good bands from your place for our readers?

Sudarshan : Aempyrean, Kryptos, Anorectal Ulceration, Amorphia, Warmarshal, Infamy, Dying Embrace, Moral Putrefaction etc. 

Asmita - Do you remember the feeling of your first show with Regicide? and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?

Sudarshan: Our first show was in an extremely small bar in Bangalore with no stage and no lights. While the sound was terrible, we kept the energy high and the crowd of 50 really responded great to the energy we brought forth, even if not the music at that point. 


Asmita - What do you hate in current underground scene?

Sudarshan : Bitching about each other in a small scene instead of supporting each other to get to the top, people who cannot seperate personal beliefs from their music and bands who don't treat their fans with respect. 


Asmita -  Support Underground Metal, how much you agree on this quote?

Sudarshan : I agree with it completely. I believe that fans must atleast support bands they like in whatever way they can.   


Asmita - Any thought about touring or playing shows in Nepal and India?

Sudsrshan : Yes, we have wanted to tour Nepal and North-east India from a very long time. We hope this can happen soon. 


Asmita - Lastly, a space for you anything EUMSN have forgotten to ask you can tell us here?

Sudarshan : We have recently released our Debut EP 'As Skin Turns to flesh’. Make sure to check it out on all digital platforms. Including the Bandcamp link:

Interview with Bruno Dias Matsuda of Neuroticos


Official social networks of Neuroticos -

2.) Facebook - @neuroticos.official
3.) Instagram - NEUROTICOSOFFICIAL
4.) Youtube - NEUROTICOSOFFICIAL
5.) Twitter - neuroticosband


Asmita - First of all, thanks a lot for interview, so what are you really looking forward from Nepali underground scene?
Bruno - First of all, thank you for this opportunity.  We played in Dharan in 2016 during our Asia tour and I was impressed with the scene there. A big audience, good production and good hospitality. Good memories and we hope to be back there soon.

Asmita - Can I get the short biography of your band? And what is the meaning of Stone Cutters exactly means to the band?
Bruno - We started the band in 2004. Since then we haven't stopped and been working hard. We have released one Split, EP, and a full album. We just finished our Japan tour to promote our album ”Kill For God”

”Neuroticos” is in Portuguese. It means Neurotic in English.

Asmita - What are the lyrical themes you use in your songs? gore, horror, politics, anti-religion etc..
Bruno -  I write songs about Religions,  wars and violence. But the main focus is about religions that cause wars and violence. one thing connects to another.

Asmita - How it feels to be in a Underground band? And what’s your message to underground community?
Bruno - Underground is our place as we play extreme music. I don't think the genre will ever be “popular” and we don’t care about getting popular. For me bands like Cannibal Corpse or Napalm Death are big, they are the masters of the scene but still in the underground in a good sense.

Asmita - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?Bruno - That's good. Extreme music is not for systematic society anyway. That's why it is called ”extreme”

Asmita - What is your opinion on the current state of extreme underground music?
Bruno -  Depends what you mean. In Japan, the scene is still good, we have many new bands and many gigs.

Asmita - Can you recommend us some good bands from your place for our readers?
Bruno -  For sure. Some of my favorite bands from Japan are Baked Bomb, Blind Hate, they are both from Hiroshima, and Taste From Sendai. There is a new great band called Invictus from Nagano and Cry from Kanagawa also. Grind fans must check Teathgrinder from Netherlands, and Inhumate from France.

Asmita - Do you remember the feeling of your first show with Stone Cutters? And how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Bruno -  I remember that it was terrible. We were very young back then and now it makes me laugh about it. But the feeling of being on the stage is unforgettable,  I felt like ” I'm the man, I am on the stage ”  and it was good for the young boy back then.

Asmita - What do you hate in current underground scene?
Bruno - We don't need enemies in the scene, we need friendship to support the underground scene that will be good for everyone. But I think promoters and production are becoming  like rivals.

Asmita - Support Underground Metal, how much you agree on this quote?
Bruno -   I support 100%. But it has to come out naturally, not forced.  Many people ”Try” to be involved in the extreme music but give up.

Asmita - Any thought about touring or playing shows in Nepal and India?
Bruno - we haven't gotten any plans but I really want to go back to Nepal again. And we have never played in India, that will be insane!

Asmita - Lastly, a space for you anything EUMSN have forgotten to ask you can tell us here?
Bruno - Thank you again for this opportunity. Please check and follow our website including other links. Hope to see you guys soon, cheers.

Interview with Dondon Collado of Maticrust.

Would a band not be considered underground anymore since they are promoting their music through social media??


Visit MATICRUST here.

Suchu - What are you doing nowadays? 
Dondon - For now we’re busy doing new stuffs for new EP, hopefully it will come out soon later this year.

Suchu - Can i get the story of your band and biography? What is the meaning of Maticrust and what does it mean to the band?
Dondon - MATICRUST came from the Filipino – Tagalog word "MATIkas"which means: firm, strong and refined. Adding "CRUST"; to its name which is based from their influences - Anarcho Crust Punk // In Grind We Crust vista during their teenage years involvement in the underground scene / movement and the DIY Pinoy Punk Scene way back early 90's. MATICRUST are all expats in the U.A.E. hailing from Abu Dhabi (UAE Capital) Originally born and raise from the Third world hell hole Philippines. Nevertheless our foundation from the underground scene gave us the jolt to pursue once again our passion and interest in the so called counter culture of mankind.

Suchu - What are the lyrical themes you use in your song? Gore, Horror, Politics, Anti religion etc..
Dondon - Our music tackled socio-political mainly oppression, discrimination, equality and apathy for the greed.

Suchu - How it feels to be in an Underground band? And for how many years you are in this scene?
Dondon - Feels like no one is controlling you and we’re free to do what ever we want and we are supported by people who feel really passionate about our music. We’re in the scene since the mid-90’s.

Suchu - Which are the bands that have influenced your band most?
Dondon - Our influence are Insect Warfare, Extreme Noise Terror, Warsore ,Terrorizer, Disrupt, Masskontroll, and Doom.


Suchu - What are the future plans of Maticrust? any tours, releases, recordings etc.
Dondon - Our main plan is to do EP’s. Touring is second but limited due to individual priority. EP hopefully it will be finished by later this year as I said and for tour if everything's okay from both side we planning to play at asakusa deathfest in japan by October this year. For some tribute compilation is the Warsore Tribute Via Extreme Terror, Grindfather Production and Power-it-up Records are now in 10” EP limited to 500 copies only. 39 bands total.

Suchu - What is your opinion on sites posting Underground Materials?
Dondon - My opinion on that it helps a band or a scene be known easily and accessible without hassle.


Suchu - How do you feel about the classifications in metal? like Deathcore, Metalcore and other Subgenres..
Dondon - About new Music of what we called nowadays to this new genres for me it’s all the same. that depends how it’s delivered musically and lyrically. And as long you’re passionate to establish it I guess there’s no boundaries on that.

Suchu - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Dondon - Ever since it is not appreciated that’s why it stays Underground means limited people who’ll understand and only those who are passionate only. That is why we’re lucky that we belong to this radical society.

Suchu - Ok, what do you want to tell those peoples who rips off the band hard work and illegally downloads their music?
Dondon - For me it’s not a big deal as far us underground is concern because it helps the bands exposure too, but the most important is the permission came from the band itself. It’s like respect.

Suchu - Beside Maticrust do you have any other projects too?
Dondon - Only Maticrust

Suchu - Is it hard surviving in underground Scene?
Dondon - We are all surviving in the UG scene as long as there are people who believes in the music or artistry of Maticrust!


Suchu - Metal has to be underground or metal has to go mainstream, what's your opinion?
Dondon - This is a topic which is hard to tackle; would a band not be considered underground anymore since they are promoting their music through social media?? or sharing it through spotify or soundcloud? Is that too mainstream already? If we believe in the UG old way, then shows should be promoted through flyers and spreading the news through verbal words and not on FB event page right?? So this is the part we ask ourselves on where is the borderline in defining if we are still UG or being a mainstream. If a band gets the recognition they deserved and unexpectedly, will they be at fault? Bash them and say you are becoming mainstream now. Is there a written 10 commandments on how to stay underground and not be noticed? Anyways, I hope you get my point, hahaha!

Suchu - What is your opinion on the current state of underground metal?
Dondon - That depends on where you live in or which country. If I am going to give the current situation of the Middle East UG, well, it’s hard sometimes to have shows especially if we need to ask permission from the authority to play at a certain place. Promoters can take the risk not be caught. So yeah, it’s a struggle worth doing!

Suchu - Which is the album you want to take to your grave?
Dondon - Disrupt ( Unrest Album ), Terrorizer ( World Down Fall Album ) and Brutal Truth ( Extreme, Condition Demand Extreme Response Album )


Suchu - Can you recommend us some good bands from your country for our readers?
Dondon - There’s a lot to mention but here are some kick-ass bands in the my hometown Giling-Anne, Coarse, Eradikatorr, Saipek, Repugnant and Absolute Truth.

Suchu - .”Support Underground Metal”, how much you agree on this quote?
Dondon - I believe in camaraderie, friendship, brotherhood, sisterhood, and so on! These are things that you can find when you support the UG scene. If you attend a show and you don’t really like the bands performing.. just show your ass-up! Give your support! Everyone will always have a good time. .

Suchu - Where do our readers can buy and listen Maticrust music and any other merchandise?
Dondon - On our FB page https://www.facebook.com/maticrustofficial/ , we’ll keep you posted.

Suchu - Do you remember your first show with Maticrust, How was it and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Dondon - Our first show was in Dubai, the crowd are stoked because we’re the first band played grind and crust core to that gig. They appreciate and enjoy it well.


Suchu - Metal Fans from Nepal doesn't have a proper way to reach your records and any other such bands, Is there an easy way so we can also get the hold of cds, shirts etc.
Dondon - It’s difficult mostly our merch came from the label itself especially ep’s for merch it will be limited because we only produced it if we have some tour for support on our expenses for travel only.

Suchu - Do you have any plans to come to Nepal in coming days?
Dondon - If given the opportunity and invite, of course that will be great! We heard a lot about the UG scene there. Would be interesting to experience it!

Suchu - What do you hate in Underground Metal? like, anything..
Dondon - Unfortunately, politics or controversy still happens. We just stop giving a sh*t about it

Suchu - Lastly, a space for you anything EUMSN have forgotten to ask you can tell us here?
Dondon - Thanks Suchitra of EUMSN for this warm interview on us, it means more to me!!! Keep the Passion Burning and Grind-On as always!!!

Interview with Vicious Circle

Since the 1980s Vicious Circle (VC) has been a main stay of the Australian Hardcore movement. The band formed in Melbourne in 1983 and was quickly established within the cities scene. VC has appeared on numerous compilations worldwide and released multiple albums, EPs and singles during the bands 30 year tenure. 


Contact Vicious Circle in Instagram - viciouscircle83
Asmita - First of all, thanks a lot for interview, so what are you really looking forward from Nepali underground scene?
Vicious Circle - No problem Eumsn i’d say the main thing is to communicate and if people are interested they can check  VICIOUS CIRCLE music out past and present. From what I gather there is a growing scene in NEPAL and INDIA of music from punk rock to death metal and everything in between. Which means people want to express themselves by making heavy music and having an outlet, which is a great thing.
Asmita - Can I get the short biography  of your band? And what is the meaning of Vicious Circle exactly means to the band?
Vicious Circle - VICIOUS CIRCLE formed in 1983 In Melbourne , AUSTRALIA at the time of the bands formation l think it was mainly boredom that drew us together and wanting to do something we could call our own, just a bunch of kids from different backgrounds who shared similar musical tastes and ideas. Since then VICIOUS CIRCLE recorded our first single in 1984  SEARCH FOR THE SOLUTIONthen in 1985 we released our first album THE PRICE OF PROGRESS. Over the decades we have released 15 ALBUMS , multiple singles,eps and been featured on compilation albums all over the world. Toured AMERICA, ASIA, EUROPE, UNITED KINGDOM, NEW ZEALAND and played extensively through AUSTRALIA . Obviously when you do something for such a long time you change and grow as an individual, for me the band has always been an outlet for creativity and expression, l am not worried about trends or fads they come and go. The most important aspect is to believe in yourself and what your doing, always try to maintain a positive outlook. You need to have fun, keep learning. I have met so many good people doing this, that's a true gift. Also you need to laugh and at times not take yourself too seriously life is far to short.
 VICIOUS CIRCLE are PAUL/ VOCALS YETI/ GUITAR CRAIG DRUMS KARL BASs

Asmita - What are the lyrical themes you use in your songs? Gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..
Vicious Circle - Mainly self determination,  a way to convey ideas and observations with lyrics  about situations you see wrong or want to question with your own perspective or thoughts. l see to much hatred,greed, in our culture. Humans from an evolutionary point of view really need to get their shit together. So much damage has been done to the planet and life/ forms, for me the best thing I can do is live by example, you can't change anything in this world until you change yourself. Politicians,Religions, Conglomerates , Banks, Industrialists, when it comes down to it they are all people.What they leave or dont leave behind effects future generations. I actually think a lot of decisions wouldnt come to fruition if the impacts or negative outcomes directly affected those making the decisions. l am for the rights of others to exist without condemnation or torture simply because they have a differant life style, sexual prefrence,culture.With my words l like people to think or question whats going on around them, in the end what they take from it is their choice. At the same time I realise how absurd life can be so sometimes you need to laugh,It's either that or go crazy    

Asmita - How it feels to be in an Underground band? And what’s your message to underground community?
Vicious Circle - l think with any form of underground music you must enjoy what you are doing and do what feels right for you , as individuals you're in control, if people get involved who are primarily in it for money or selfish reasons,it won't last , how can it when your building or creating something on a superficial level, some ridiculous concept of making the big time, maybe it will have some initial success but eventually it will turn to crap. The mainstream is filled with rubbish. To anyone forming a band or any other creative outlet, believe in yourself, it's that simple and if you are determined you will find a way. It takes a lot of work, nothing worthwhile rarely happens quickly.

Asmita - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Vicious Circle - People sometimes just don't get it they may have misconceptions or ideas that people are violent or aggressive simply because they dress or listen to music they don't understand. Or their value system makes them prejudice because the person in question is different.If they took the time to talk or know what the person is about that might radically change that opinion. That's part of the path of doing something you enjoy or believe in, not everyones going to get it.

Asmita - What is your opinion on the current state of extreme underground music?
Vicious Circle - I think there will always be new bands and individuals pushing boundaries that's part of it as long as there are people picking up instruments and discovering music it will keep evolving . new music is being made all over the world by kids who get pissed off with authority figures, etc or they just want to create something .Or new bands forming , so it just keeps evolving.



Asmita - Can you recommend us some good bands from your place for our readers?
Vicious Circle - Okay these are bands from AUSTRALIA some PUNK, HARDCORE, DEATH METAL, THRASH, GRIND,STREET PUNK, etc  100 YEARS WAR,BLUNT SHOVEL, BIRDCAGE,DARKHORSE,RUST,BLOWHOLE, PERDITION,MAGGOT BATH,ABRASIVE ACTION, UNBOUND,DESECRATOR,KMART WARRIORS,COFFIN,HARD ONS,ENZYME,BLOOD DUSTER,MINDSNARE,TOE TO TOE,STRAIGHT TO A TOMB,ROCKS,ANXIETY NATION,I HATE PEOPLE, ALREADY DEAD,PROTOSPASM,STITCHED UP,PLAN OF ATTACK,DEAD ROOT,EXTORTION,SHATTER BRAIN,HIDDEN INTENT,ALKIRA,PISSCHRIST,SHOT POINT BLANK,SAMSARA.BATTLETRUK,IRON MIND,DEPRESSION,TEARGAS,REAPER,AGAINST,COLD GROUND,CIVIL DISSIDENT,BORED,SUBVERSION,GASH,CURSED EARTH,A.V.O,H BLOCK 101,THE DEAD WALK,DROPSAW.

Asmita - Do you remember the feeling of your first show with Vicious Circle? and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Vicious Circle - That was a long time ago but l was very nervous and trying to remember the words to the songs, then it just went by like the blink of an eye,  l thought it was terrible, however people came up afterwards and said they enjoyed it. I think that shocked me.I was just a kid and glad no one threw anything at me.To this day l always get nervous before a gig. l think when l don't I'll know it's time to give it up, l need to feed of that adrenaline,  it was at a venue in Melbourne called the Seaview Ballroom, which has long since closed. VICIOUS CIRCLE played that venue many times in the 80s and saw some iconic shows, a lot of punk bands played that venue in the 70s l saw the DEAD KENNEDYS, IGGY POP, PIL, SICK THINGS, DEPRESSION,THE SAINTS,ROSE TATTOO, THE ZORROS, Z CARS, RESIDENTS, I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVY, LA FEMME ,NEW CHRISTS, CORPSE GRINDERS,END RESULT,CIVIL DISSIDENT,ARM THE INSANE,etc 

Asmita - What do you hate in current underground scene?
Vicious Circle - I don't hate anything ,no point really would be a waste of  time. People are always going to have different opinions or likes, that's just the way things are .Achieves nothing getting hung up about it. 

Asmita - Support Underground Metal, how much you agree with this quote?
Vicious Circle - I think it's important  support underground music as a whole , punk, metal,[other forms of independent music] bands, people ,labels,studios, venues,clubs,radio,mags webzines, photographers, individuals who put their heart  into creating something from nothing independently through their own means.

Asmita - Any thoughts about touring or playing shows in Nepal and India?
Vicious Circle - NEPAL and INDIA currently we have no plans but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen,you never know.

Asmita - Lastly, a space for you anything EUMSN have forgotten to ask you can tell us here?
Vicious Circle - Thanks for the interview l will send links so people can go to bandcamp or youtube and listen to albums or songs for free. Be well

Asmita - First of all, thanks a lot for interview, so what are you really looking forward from Nepali underground scene? 
Mob 47 - Our pleasure that you are interested to do an interview with an old hardcore band from Sweden. We have never been to Nepal but we have heard that the underground scene is good and hope we have the opportunity to play there someday.

Asmita - Can I get the short biography  of your band? And what is the meaning of Mob 47 exactly means to the band?
Mob 47 - Mob 47 was born 1983 and releasing the 11 song cassette ”Hardcore Attack” same year. In April 1984 we recorded 22 songs on a rented portable studio of which nine ended up on the ”Kärnvapen Attack” EP. All of our recordings are made in Bowling studio on which is actually the rehearsal space we had in a bowling alley. In 1985 we tried being a four piece band with a guy called Robban on vocals. We did a few gigs and recordings together but Robban left after only a few months. Tommy from a band called Crudity took his place.. Later that year Jögge decide to quit and the band dissolved not long after. Almost 20 years later we decided to get together again. The 2005 line up consisted of Johan on base, Jögge vocals, Åke guitar and Chrille drums. We recorded some new material in the summer of 2007 and in 2008 we release a new 7” “Dom Ljuger Igen“ Jugga left the band in November 2007 making MOB 47 a three piece once again. In October 2016 Johan decide to leave the band and from 2017 the new bass player is Christoffer Larsson. Mob stands for vapenförråd in Swedish “armoury storage” and 47 is just a number ;)
