Have any of you played in other bands? Yeah! We played in various bands around the middle of the 90s. Basically it was death metal and grindcore. But besides that, each of us participates in other projects.
How is it that you started playing music? We wanted to make a modern project, if possible with cheerful music. Only have fun not always. Life throws up sinister surprises. But there is a desire to make our music as cheerful as possible.
What are your names? / Who plays what? / How old are you? In TRUEPICK we are hidden under the pseudonyms: Lazy Lord of Satan (vocals) and Alex Hellsound (guitars, programming). Age, unfortunately, is far from being a teenage one)).
Have you had other previous members? What year did the band form? In TRUEPICK, we, together with the very beginning of the project (since 2014), do not plan other members.
Where are you from? We come from the sunny Crimea, from the glorious city of Sevastopol, on the Black Sea coast.
What country? This is a political issue. But we declare that Crimea is the territory of Russia. Unfortunately, in the European media about the Crimea, untrue information.
What's your style of genre? We strive to work in the style of cyber grindcore. Now grindcore has a lot of styles, and I consider this a good sign, because it supports this genre afloat. It says that people still like a good grind! And we want to bring something fresh into it, raise it to a new level. This makes music diverse. Grind is an art.
What inspires you? Absolutely unexpected things. Whether it's hip-hop or porno goregrind. And of course - injustice, rudeness, idiocy. All this fucking negative.
How often and where do you reherse? We have a home studio. In addition, there are many rehearsal bases in the city. We rehearse just before the performances. A day or two before the concert. It's enough.
How have you developed since you started with the music? Development is an ongoing process. We do not rest on our laurels and we want to please you with cheerful madness and analysis of some spheres of our life.
Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Each of us works. We are responsible people)). In addition, guitarist Alex is engaged in mixing and mastering various metal bands.
Are you looking for a label, and what are your thoughts around that? It seems to me that the team should interest some labels with their music. And we did it.
What made you decide to make this music? Back in the 90's it was clear that there will be new music, new styles. For example, very heavy guitar riffs along with electronic music. There was a great desire to play something like that. But unfortunately, at that time, in our country there were some fucking crises, instability. And of course, quite a young age did not allow me to buy the necessary high-quality equipment and instruments. Now everything has changed and we have the opportunity to do what we want.
What are your songs about? Our world is full of shit, so there is no end to the sources of creative inspiration! Our songs are socially directed songs that tell about the most global crimes against humanity. And also about all the other things that in common music it would be simply impossible to sing, for example about disgusting human vices ... But you will not find in our songs texts about human insides or something like that.
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? Initially, we discuss the theme of the song together, and then the Lazy Lord of Satan gives it a poetic appearance.
Do you compose in a certain inviroment? If a "certain environment" is what we thought, then yes, sometimes we write songs in a certain environment)). Depending on the mood.
Have you done any covers live?
Oh sure!!! This cover for the band Mortician, Libido Airbag, Ahumado Granujo and some russian performers.
What language do you sing in? Songs in Russian. But sometimes this or that chorus in a song can sound in English.
What are the least and most people to attend one of your gigs? We play in small clubs mostly. Usually people can vary from 50 to 100.
Do you always play the same songs live, or do you vary? We constantly change and add new ones to please those who came to gig.
Do you have a regular place you play live often? Yes, these are various clubs on the territory of the Crimea.
What was your first gig like? Uncompromising. No snot)).
Where have you played live this year? Fest «Crimeathe Brutal».
