Interview with Germ Bomb

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians?

Hey,
We started Germ bomb back in 2009 when our former band Hathor split up, Hathor draw more to punkrock and we were kind of fed up with that so we incorporated more metal and doom into this new project, we were inspired by band such as Toxic Holocaust, Celtic Frost, Entombed and GBH.

Why did you pick your band name? How did you form? Why did you decide to play the genre or genres you do?

We dont care so much for genres and to categorise music, we know people often do but for us what comes out comes out. The name Germ Bomb came while listening to an old Dead Kennedys song,they sing it in the lyrics.

What can you tell us about your latest record?

I think it came out pretty well, its been a long process, the sound is great and we worked with really talented people, Martin Ehrencrona (Pig Eyes, Nifelheim) did the mixing and Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna) mastered, Anders Borgh at Kust studios did a great job recording it. Its a heavy record with lots of influences metal, punk, doom and industrial elements.

What the kind of album feedbacks are you waiting for?

I don’t know, when people listen and really understand the thing, with no prejudices. Or just gets energy out of our music..

Are you gonna to make some world tour in the future? Do you think this is available for everybody option to tour around the globe? What do you think band have to do to get such opportunity?

Its hard to reach that level and its not an option if you dont have the muscles of a big record label or managment behind you but you can do a lot of things DIY, maybe not world tours..

Do you believe in heavy music scene without money?

It’s sad but almost everything is about money in heavy rock music aswell as in the world complete, people wants to get paid and dont do things for charity because they have to pay rent or buy food to their children, but you have to make music from the heart and not in commercial purposes, thats the key.

What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

Yeah we give it for free in some way, youtube and Bandcamp but if your really into the music you should by a physical copy somehow.

Who are your musical influences? Have you ever think your band could be so famous as your favorites?

Motorhead and GBH were a big influence but also metal bands like Toxic Holocaust and Celtic Frost, We listen to all kinds music, industrial, neofolk, ambient,
the list goes on and on.

Do you have a formal music education? Do you think it’s a Kind of important thing?

No!

How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?

Its a puzzle to make it work, we have full time jobs and I have kids so we just have to make the best of it.

How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Or you can assure there are no any mistakes during your gigs? Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?

Live shows is one thing and studio something else, if attitude and energy is good, mistakes is not such a big deal live, some level of nervosity is needed before a live gig.

What’s next? Thank you!

Thanx for having us! Gist Sucked Out is out soon and we will hit the road in Sweden and Norway.
Rock n roll is the only way.. Cheers!
