BBMA Band Of The Week #16: Seek Nothing



 "Not so bad hardcore" since '14.
DIY metallic oldschool hardcore from Berlin. Their Members are a motley bunch from all around
the globe, with just as different roots though. FFO: Metal, Hardcore & everything inbetween.
I had the honour of releasing their S/T EP on Tape in mid '16 and also
their Split 7" w/ No End In Sight in early '17. I highly recommend both ;-)

Who are you, what are you doing in the band?

Hello, my name is Mike and I am the screamer/dancer.

How has the band evolved since the beginning?

We pride ourselves on not really getting better to be honest,
most bands that evolve just end up playing EDM and fighting online with their fans.
I would definitely say that we are better at what we do, live and in recording. Yes.
I think I mentioned this before but one of my favourite things about being in this band is
the learning curve. I now know more about writing, recording and distributing music
than I did three years ago. We’re still totally clueless but I like embracing the fact that
we (I) are a spectacular mess 98% of the time.

What have you accomplished so far and what are your goals for the future?


We have accomplished not killing each other
and our main goal is to not die before we record an actual album!

Any upcoming shows/releases/anything else you wanna tell us about?


Yes we are finally finishing our second EP at the moment, which will be four br00tal songs
about the usual pathetic subjects that piss me off. Mark My Words Records are going
to put out the CD this summer and then we would like to release it on 7” later this year.
We have been playing some of the songs for over a year now so it will be nice to finally
have them released. They are all basically the same as our other songs except that
when it’s heavy it is HEAVY and the melodic stuff is more, well… melodic? Yes.
I guess we should really write a full length record while we have some spare time coming up
until the Autumn. We are currently booking a tour in October with our pals in Bomb Out,
if any of us lives through that it will be a small miracle.

How do you feel about bbma as a label?
In what do we suck most/what could we do better in the future?

I have very strong feelings about BBMA in general! Tim is such a wicked dude
 and has treated us super well since we were first introduced by a mutual friend.
We’re not straight edge (but love tons of bands that are) so that’s extra nice that we were welcomed
to the label. It proves that there is still some inclusivity within the hardcore scene.
Being in a DIY band can be a struggle so having that support has really helped us.
Also, please reference Neon Genesis Evangelion more.

Thanks a lot! Feel free to add some shoutouts!

No thank YOU!
Shoutout to Piece, Earn Your Scars, Employed To Serve, Murder Mile, Head To Head & Kiss!

BBMA Newbloods: When Ashes Are Rising

Oldschool metalcore from Italy... and the newest member to join the BBMA Family.
Their awesome debut LP entitled "Of Earth And Men", previously self-released on CD,
will soon also be available on a limited number of Tapes, as BBMA39.
FFO: Morning Again, At The Gates, Heaven Shall Burn, ...


Who are you and what are you doing in the band?

I’m the second (or first, doesn’t matter) guitarist in the band.
I also deal with the recording process of all our music. (Delio)

Is WAAR your first band-project? What about the other members?

No, I used to play in an Industrial Metal band before, called Cybercage.
 Luca, our bassist, used to play in Absence (XVX band from Turin) and As Humanity Fades.
Afshin was the voice of various bands such as L’Odio and OhxCristo.

What is WAAR about? Any kind of message you want to spread?

We believe in the total collapse of all the powers that make every human being a slave,
from the very moment you are born 'till you die. We believe in the destruction of all the systems
that enslave us through imposition and violence. We believe in the fall of everything the virus
called "man" has created, constantly raping Mother Earth. To burn everything down
and see something new rising from the ashes: this is WHEN ASHES ARE RISING.

What have you achieved so far and what are your goals for the future?

We are a relatively young band so we still have lots to achieve.
However, we were fortunate enough to share the stage with bands we admire, Strength Approach
and Traces of You among all. Our main goal right now is to play our music overseas.

So, when will you tour europe, that we can see you live?

Hopefully soon! :-)

I wanna thank you Tim for this interview and for supporting us!
The passion you put in what you do is contagious. You know it’s not just music,
but most of all, it’s a strong social and political message, and we agree with that!


Pre-Order at some point next week: http://bbmarecords.com/shop

BBMA Gives: No Mas Fronteras

A new categorie: An Introduction to a good cause + all proceeds (rounded up)
of this weeks sale (from the BBMA Webstore) will be donated to it.
So, if you ever contemplated about either getting some BBMA stuff or not - now is the time!

No Mas Fronteras / No More Borders


Two oldschool vegan straight edge brothers (Diego & Roberto) who currently live in Berlin
and Barcelona, are trying to get their (veggie) Parents, which currently live in Uruguay,
near them again; with the help of the vegan straight edge hardcore community...
Read more about that in a short Interview down here:

Who are you and what is the Idea behind "No More Borders"?

Well, we are Diego and Roberto, 2 brothers from South America that came to Europe 13 years ago,
to try to forge a better future and help the family we have back in our country.
The idea behind this life project is to raise the necessary money to pay all the stuff we need
to have our parents living in europe near us.
 
 What have you acomplished so far and how has the campaign evolved since the beginning?

We started 2 years ago and now we have raised the money for the flight tickets,
so the next step is to cover the heavy bureaucracy/ and the lawyer to help us to have them
 legal when they come here. The campaign evolved slow, but firm as we like to say,
we are looking forward to see them here when we want and not when we can!
So now we need to sell the things we have such as prints (designed from tattoo artitsts.
friends of us) and tote bags to raise the money we need.

 What are your plans for the near future and how do you want to realize them?

The plans are simple, to have our parents near us, in the same country/city as a family
and take care of them , because they are getting older and when you are living 12.000 km far
from them its nothing that you can do. We continue walking forward with our campaign, and with
the help of good friends like you, because we are normal workers and we don't have enough money and resources to make it us, alone. That´s the main reason we started to run the campaign, cause coming from a country in the so called third world sometimes is more that you can imagine, if you been born and raised here it´s not easy to understand that low income/ poor people it´s not only in
the news as only fiction movie, it´s also true. If someone need or want some pictures of where my parents live i can send it, not because we live here means we have all the solutions, that´s the reason we need you that read tis interview, we need your support! we have many nice things to sell!

 

So, if you want to support them, you now have some different options:
 
Via their bigcartel store, which holds the mentioned prints and (from time to time)
a variety of merch, such as t-shirts & tote bags:
http://nomoreborders.bigcartel.com/

 Via their gofundme page (which also holds some more information and stuff):
https://www.gofundme.com/unitedfamilyagain

Or now (from 29/May to 04/Jun) also from the Bound By Modern Age Records Webstore
(which obviously holds lots of cool xvx records and merch as well): http://bbmarecords.com/shop

Thanks for your attention. Feel free to spread the word and give them a like/follow:

BBMA Band Of The Week #15: Primal Age



Primal Age is OG Vegan Straight Edge 90’s Metalcore from France.
The band was founded in 1995 (released their first Album in '97), became Absone in 1999,
just to became Primal Age again in 2006 and remains active under that name until today.
...still vegan, still straight edge, still shredding that 90’s Metal(core) sound.
One of my first releases (3 years ago), was the (now sold out) compilation/best of tape
"My Legacy / Eternal Struggle - The Best Of 17 Years XVX 90's Metalcore" which held
some of their (to my mind) best tracks from the very begining to where they where then...
And now, in 2017 I just had the honor to work with them again and do the vinyl version
of their most recent EP "A Silent Wound" (which you can now - only for one week -
get on discount from the BBMA webstore). Check them out!
FFO: Arkangel, Earth Crisis, Heaven Shall Burn, …

Who are you, what are you doing in the band?
 
I'm xDimitrix, I play bass, do some backing vocals and also write the lyrics for PxA. 

How has the band evolved since the beginning?

I think we've succeeded in keeping the identity of our sound without doing the same
records always and always again. We started 22 years ago with the energy and fury of a
young edge metal band, and it's still the same passion and hapiness to have the opportunity
to keep this adventure alive. We feel proud to stay after all these years. 

What have you accomplished so far and what are your goals for the future?

 PxA has 2 full albums, 1 split album with the japanese band Cherish and the argentinian guys
of xMostomaltax. 2 EP's, 12 crossed countrys with a mexican tour, one in Japan and one in Brasil, more than 300 shows. We're still hungry and want to see more, meeting great people with
different cultures and playing the music we deeply feel. Our favorite topics are the same since
the beginning: the defense of Earth and all the living creatures you find on it. 

Any upcoming shows/releases/anything else you wanna tell us about?
 
Our latest EP called "A Silent Wound" is just out, so we'll keep our time before doing another
(as we've always done). We plan shows to defend it, maybe far from home to keep that at memory
for our old days. Your label BBMA offers us a vinyl version and the indonesian label
Diorama Records another one on tape (out soon).

How do you feel about bbma as a label?

We've the chance of making a vinyl version because of you, so... 
Thank you Tim for your assistance and the support in this project.
We wish you all the success in what you do.

In what do we suck most/what could we do better in the future?

Experience is the key, we all do some mistakes, the most important thing is to learn from
these shity things to get better. Less dispersal to keep your energy focused on one goal at the time. Work according to your ways and means, passion will make the rest.

BBMA Band Of The Week #14: Human Animal



Kind of an hardcore allstars-super-group with members of bands like: Anchor, Jesus Wept, xDisciplex AD, Brother’s Keeper, Prayer For A Fallen Angel, The A.K.A.s, Empty Promises,
Smoke & Mirrors, Abnegation, Run Devil Run, Phases and probably a couple more!
I had the honour of releasing their "the first four winters" compilation tape back in early '16.
I really recommend checking them out. FFO: Sick Of It All, xDisciplex AD, Madball, ...

Who are you, what are you doing in the band?

My name is Eric Michael Schauffele aka EMS and I sing for Human Animal.
I bless these other 3 turds with my golden voice which is that of the angels above.
My other duties include complaining, worrying, over thinking, and procrastinating writing lyrics. 

How has the band evolved since the beginning?

 I feel like our newer songs are hitting harder than ever and we’re finding our groove.
Every time we write a new one I’m thinking “Yeah that’s the shit I’m looking for.”
We’ve shortened a lot of the new stuff and also there’s less guitar solos since Nate has moved
away and left the band. Our bassist Ryan “Baby Boi” Zimmerman really stepped up and has written
a lot of new jams for our upcoming stuff that really brought a welcomed new element.
As of lately we really haven’t played many shows in order to focus on writing which has taken
a bit of time, but hopefully that will all pay off. 

What have you accomplished so far and what are your goals for the future?

 We’ve dropped numerous EPs on a bunch of different labels coast to coast across the US
and were blessed with two releases coming out of Germany as well, so that to me is super exciting.
We’ve played with a ton of amazing bands in the US that like to ask to borrow our gear after they
didn’t even check us out so we got that going for us! But seriously we’ve been very fortunate in
our opportunities so far. I would definitely enjoy playing out more often but it’s tough these days
if you’re not part of a tour package or pay to be on one.

Any upcoming shows/releases/anything else you wanna tell us about?

 In a month from now we’re playing our first home town show in a long time which is in Erie, PA with Terror, God’s Hate, & Steel Nation so that is super exciting and we really look forward to
that show. I’m currently trying to lose 10 pounds before then so I don’t die on stage that night
but the nachos I just ate at 1:00am might beg to differ. As far as releases we’ve got 10-11 new songs written musically and half of them have lyrics. So the next step is a full length CD/LP on a yet to be determined record label. We record all of our own material and we’ve done some pre-production
but we really gotta get this thing brewing sooner than later. It will be a huge sigh of relief
once that’s finished. I’m pumped to have people hear this new stuff. It’s got a nice vibe to it
and so far a lot of the songs are all different from each other. 

How do you feel about bbma as a label?
In what do we suck most/what could we do better in the future?

Oh man what kinda crack are you smoking? You helped us out a ton.
We were pumped to drop something on BBMA and I think it turned out awesome.
It’s harder for us to tell how the label operates with us being all of the way over here
but you guys have done some righteous releases. Not to mention you post photos of you shirtless, flexing, or lifting weights, sometimes in a ski mask. How can you go wrong!?!
We prefer to work with lunatics as we feel right at home with them. I personally know
how hard running a label is as I did one for years (Surprise Attack Records aka SA Mob).
DIY hardcore is a thankless money pit that for some reason we all keep doing! 

Thanks a lot! Feel free to add some shoutouts!

Thanx to my bandmates Adam, Ryan, & Bob for doing this band together.
Much love to our wives, girlfriends, and family for putting up with our nonsense.
Special thanx to Tim / BBMA, Danny / Holy Mountain, Panda Claw Records,
Marcel / Demons Run Amok, Matt Yocum / Down For Anything, the guys in Head 2 Wall Records, Wreckage, & Additional Time, for all believing in us and giving us a chance.
Much love to everyone who checks us out online or live, and my favorite,
much love to those who get up front and scream along. Respect.

BBMA Band Of The Week #13: Not In This Lifetime


Melodic, yet metallic oldschool hardcore from the Netherlands (by ex-members of Lies!)
After the well accepted release of their demo I now also had the opportunity to release their
debut full-length on tape as well. If you didn't had the chance yet, be sure to check it out now!
FFO: No Turning Back, Champion, Casey Jones (without the SxE), Death Before Dishonor, …

Who are you, what are you doing in the band?

Hi my name is Sander and I do vocals.
Besides that I write all the music for NITL, so the band is kind of my baby. 

How has the band evolved since the beginning?

Since the beginning we added 2 friends on guitar and I switched from guitar to vocals. 
Musically the direction was pretty clear from the beginning, but NITL will never write the
same album twice. So there will always be certain aspects that make NITL sound like NITL.
But at the same time things do evolve. I think our demo already showed that there’s a lot of
diversity between and within songs. On our debut album “Vultures” I think we showed
a wide variety of influences and tried to make this come together and fit.
The goal for a next release is to really create more of a signature sound/style. 

What have you accomplished and what are your goals for the future?

We released a full length album last year and played a couple of really cool show,
in Holland but also abroad. More people start to know we exist. We all have jobs,
have a mortgage and some of us have kids. So we’re not in the position to put as much time into
the band as we would like. But with the time we have we try to accomplish as much as possible. 
My personal goals for the future are:
-have fun with my friends (absolute number one)
-create and play music that makes my heart beat faster
-play cool shows

Any upcoming shows/releases/anything else you wanna tell us about?

We play our hometown Groningen next week [this is a bit outdated - I'm afraid - my fault] and got some other things going. I’m busy writing new songs and we started
 rehearsing a few of them. I’m really exited about the new stuff and hope that we can
start recording asap, hopefully somewhere in 2017.

How do you feel about bbma as a label?
In what do we suck most/what could we do better in the future?

I have a lot of respect for people who put their time, energy and money into supporting
bands they enjoy. I like bbma’s enthousiasme and how easy Tim is approachable.
Communication has always been easy and every promise is kept, so that’s really cool. 
What I personally don’t understand is why a lot of smaller DIY labels do so many
releases every year, in stead of doing a few and promoting the hell out of them.
But I guess having a bigger catalogue is also a cool achievement
and being able to support more bands you love counts for something. 
[The main reason why I release "so many" things each year is, that I always feel bad
when I have to decline a submission (of which I actually like)... and so I just do it :P]

Shoutouts

Thank you Tim for your support. 
If you checked out ‘Vultures’” thank you!!!
