Let´s talk about your latest CD "Book of Rats", tell us more about the
writing/recording process and are you happy with the result?
- "Book of rats" was just a collection of demos that we havent really recorded yet,
the versions that people have dont even have a bass guitar on them,
its just alex and a drummer jamming out some ideas for songs
I noticed that all of your albums are available through your site in mp3 format,
great way to spread the word
but are there any other motives behind this? Are you anti-label?
- Im pro art.... and anti anything that takes away from art or tries to lead art into a more commercially accessable format.....
giving my art away for free keeps it pure and in the long run will leave a truer legacy of work behind...
im not saying i wouldnt ever put anything out on a label,
im just waiting for the label that still gives me complete creative control of my project
What do you think about internet? While ago there were a rumour spreading around that
Cancerslug has split-up etc etc. Does these rumours bother you?
- As long as people are talking about cancerslug, I dont really care what they say.....
at least they recognize our existance, love it or hate it
the interenet is a great way for independant art to be spread to the masses
Little more about your music, you have song title such as "I love pain", "hateseeker", "straight razor rape",
where do you dig up these titles and inspirations to your lyrics?
- Whatever gets peoples attention, we hide our true message in between the dick and fart jokes...
I think most of our real fans are smart enough to get it
Moving on to touring, what is the weirdest thing that has happen to you while being on stage?
- Self mutilation, audiance mutilation, attacks by our enemys,
and on stage gratification fom fans.... you name it.....
