Interview: Fankaz

Fankaz is hardcore/post-punk band from Italy which have released their new album under the name of ‚’Seities’’. You can read below an interview I had with Ricky (vocals and guitar) about the new album, past releases also and other Fankaz plans.

 

Hi Ricky, how’s going? Before, as the readers to know, tell the little history when Fankaz was founded.
Hi Carla, I want to thank you for this little interview! Fankaz was founded in 2003 by me, Pole and Mora. We met at high school and since the beginning we wanted to play punk rock. Fankaz ia a word in dialect that means “do nothing” and for us it was the best word at that time. Elio joined to the band in 2009 after the recording of our first album “Slow Victims for Fast Predators”. Our second album “Burning Leaves of Empty Fawns” was recorded in 2013 and now our new album “SEITIES” is ready to burn the ears of the world.

You’ve released the third album entitled ”Seities”, out via WormHoleDeath records, but tell me when did you start to write this album?
”Seities’’ is a very instinctive album, we decided to write new stuff during 2015 and in march/april of 2016 we recorded all the songs at Titans Lab studios. It was really strange for us because we have always been very slow during the writing process but not this time. We put all the anger and frustration in this album and it was  a very liberating process. And to be precise the album is out via Too Loud records, my newborn label, Overdub Recordings and WormHoleDeath records.

What is the musical direction and the theme of the album?
It’s the most direct and concrete, introspective and personal. I put a lot of anger and aggressivness in these lyrics and I decided to use more screaming vocals this time because we wanted a more hardcore sound.  We wanted to talk about our life, our city, our friends and everything around us. A lot of personal stuffs.

Do you compare the sound of ”Seities’ to be different than the previous Fankaz releases?
Yes, because this is a modern hardcore album, but you can find a lot of similarities with the previous album. In particularly the guitar parts with a lot of open chords and technical stuff. There are a lot of scream and less melodic lyrics, but in the end this is a natural evolution of our sound.

Interview: WormHoleDeath records

I had the pleasure to have an interview about WormHoleDeath records with the owner itself, Carlo Bellotti.

Hi Carlo, first I want to thank you accepting answering this interview, how things are going?
Hello Carla. No problem, my pleasure! All in all things are going very well here. Thanx!

First of all, I want you to tell me a small history of WormHoleDeath Records, when did you ”gave birth’’ to this label.
WormHoleDeath was conceived when I asked Emiliano Lanzoni (Aural Music Group) if he could meet me at lunch half way (Imola – Firenze) cause I wanted to talk to him about my idea. He said yes, let’s meet up. I wanted my label to be under a bigger mother company/network to start the work in a very effective way since the beginning. I like Emiliano as a person and Aural Music Group as a company (not to mention the great job done by him with Code666) so I met Emiliano during 2006 and he said that he wanted my label to belong to his group. We made a deal and I started my work. By the end of 2007 (31st December 2007) we announced the beginning of WormHoleDeath. After so many years I am still happy and proud of what we have done together with Aural. I couldn’t be happier actually.

Which were the first bands that have signed a deal with the label?
We signed Onsetcold from England and Lifend from Italy. Both bands are no longer active unfortunately cause they made 2 absolutely amazing albums for us. I am grateful to these guys which wanted to give us their records for release. Afterwards we signed Mechanical God Creation and The Way Of Purity which pushed our label to the next level. With the releases of these 2 bands (respectively CELLXIII and CROSSCORE) we turned from an unknown entity to a more international brand. Both these bands are still with us and I will never let them go unless they do not sign on a bigger label.

Some bands are no longer active or simply did not re-newed the contract with WHD, since last year I see new bands signed: Words That Burn, Lamori, Excruciation, Dark Oath, Norhod, Selfmachine and Shadowdream re-signed with the label, this is a positive thing regarding the label having new bands.
Bands split up, change label etc , I mean, this is part of our job so what can I say. Instead when a band is truly active and dead serious we ask them to release their new efforts with us again, if they are happy with our work. Most of the bands re-signed with us ,signing for a second album is even more exciting than signing for the first time.

Since the label’s existence there are more than 80 releases and the number continues to grow…
Our catalougue is actually at release number 115 if you include EP’s, distribution and digital releases. Some releases have been removed from the catalogue when our licensing rights expired. We release an average of 12 albums per year, but we do not release one per month. We prefer to release batches of 2-3 albums per time. Is more effective for such a small company like we are.
