Interviews: ABRASIVE


This is a new interview with the Brutal Death Metal/Grindcore/Death Metal band ABRASIVE from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or came out just like that?

Hi, Ralf here. We were looking for a band name and our bass player Alex came up with ABRASIVE. We liked it. Also, there was no other band with that name.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

We are all big fans of Death Metal since the early days (yes, we are old, hahaha). We also listen to Thrash, Grind, and stuff like that. But when we started, we want to play Death Metal as a three-piece band like Pungent Stench or Grave. No double guitars, just simple brutal music.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes, we know each other long before. Alex our drummer was my neighbor when I was a child. We both decided to make a band in school days. He bought drums and I bought a guitar. Later we played in different bands. Our bassist was also a friend so it was just for fun to make a band together.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Alex (drums): Death, Obituary, Autopsy, Pungent Stench

Alex (bass): Dying Fetus, Bolt Thrower, Gorefest, Devourment, Anthrax, Dead, Suffocation, Misery Index, Blast Perversion, Tool, Clutch, Kyuss, Incantation, Goratory

Ralf (git/voc): Death, Loudblast, Pungent Stench, Fleshgrind, Fates Warning

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We get inspired by our environment most of the time. Sometimes we hear stuff and think, that sounds good, let’s do something like that. I the time it sounded totally different in the end, hahaha.

6. Where was your last gig?

Due to the Covid19 situation, we couldn’t play that much in the last 2 years. Our last gig was in Mörlenbach-Weiher (Germany) with Chapel Of Disease. The audience had to sit on chairs. That was a funny experience.

7. Where would you like to act?

It doesn’t matter. We play everywhere. Big clubs, small clubs, pubs, … Maybe we would like to play some festivals like Netherlands Deathfest.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

It is always a pleasure to play with bands, that were kind of hero when we were younger. Bands like Pungent Stench (or Schirenc plays Pungent Stench), Kreator, Obituary, Deicide or Cannibal Corpse.

9. Whom not?

No special band. We don’t want to play with Nazi bands or any extremist bands. Of course, we don’t like rockstar or arrogant people in bands.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Yes, me at the beginning of playing music. It was always hard to go on the stage for me. I was puking before entering the stage, hahaha. But I could not resist playing shows. It became better within the years. Now it is no problem. I don’t have any tip. Take a deep breath and go on the stage.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

In the beginning Pungent Stench, Bolt Thrower, and Grave. Then we get more inspired by bands like Severe Torture, Suffocation, or Fleshgrind.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

There weren’t weird things so far. Who knows what will come …

13. What do you think of your fans?

We are very thankful and happy if someone likes what we are doing. Thank you all for your support!

14. What do you think of our site?

Great site with a lot of information. Will check it more often in the future. I like, that you are featuring all styles of metal / extreme music.

15. Something to add?

Thanks for the interview. Keep supporting the underground and check out our new CD “Edge of Darkness”.
