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
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?
SOME OF OUR MUSICAL AND LYRICAL INFLUENCES:
INTEGRITY, G.G.ALLIN, CHARLES BUKOWSKI, ALL OUT WAR, RINGWORM, ARKANGEL,
WWK, HATESPHERE, LUZIERS MOB and JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
We stay true to our motto: drink â fight â fuck.
