Don´t Panic with Missiles of October - An Interview

Há algum tempo não chegava aos meus tímpanos algo tão brutal, pesado e doentio como os belgas do Missiles of October.

Leia-se por brutar, pesado e doentio, um resgate de prediletos dos 90´s como Jesus Lizard, Terminal Cheesecake,  Fugazi, Girls Against Boys e por ai vai.

Don´t Pani o álbum dos caras é um chinelada na cabeça, na mente e onde mais puder, riffs pesados e econômicos, cozinha curta e grossa, e um vocal berrado, que dá vontade de sair chutando tudo pela frente.

Um discaço, de uma banda foda.

***** Interview with Missiles of October *****

Q. When did Missiles of October start? Tell us about the history...
Lionel : “The band was born in the beginning of 2012 at Brussels, Belgium. Mathias Salas, who just stopped his previous band: Galvanize, asked me if I wanted to create a new band with him. Like we had already shared the stage many oftimes before and appreciated doing shows together. I accepted. Quickly, Bob joined the adventure. First rehersal was very funny and constructive so we decided to continue, and 3 years later, we done +/-70 gigs in Belgium, France, Germany and Netherlands and done 2 EP and 1 LP, and have many fun together.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I think it’s what we love the most, playing live, we are totally in our music, in a sort of trance…. It’s very physical for us! we are trying to be a short of storm in stage and to communicate our energy with people.

Q. How do you describe Missiles Of October sounds?
we describe us like angry sludge punk stoner! we love distortion, to be heavy and play fast!

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the album?
We recorded it in our rehearsal room in 3-4 sessions with good mics, DIY spirit and patience. We have already recorded many things with our previous bands so we have acquired a certain experience about it and we know what sound we want.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended
Mathias: Brussels stage is actually very dynamic, many bands are very good like The Progerians, Chugalug, Slovenians. There's also another very good groups, like It It Anita (Belgian), Das Modell (French), Buildings (US)

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
Ahah great question because we are actually trying to do an ABDOMENS cover, and hope one day to do a Joy Division & Les Thugs covers…. But we are slow guys, be patient!!!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are working on our second album and on some songs for split records projects, we hope to release all these next year! Labels are welcome to contact us!

Thanks a lot for your interest, really! Support your favorites & locals bands, be curious and have fun!
