Disturbance Project Interview

.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the compilation?

Hi! Well after the cd release we have made any local shows and also , Eastern Germany tour of 7 dates and writting new stuff for a new recording(hopefully in short)

2.Recently you have released a compilation where you re-recorded all of your tracks from the splits, what was the decision behind re-recording these songs and also how do they differ from the originals?

We always thought  about do this, due we were not 100% happy with old  recordings, but then  when we change our drummer and our singer, we decided is was important to play old songs with this new line up, because we want to keep same style and same way to do the things with the band, so we rescue old stuff instead of write new songs,  and re-record these 24 songs and release it.  Our previous recording was done in 2009 and this was the faster thing to have a new release, instead of write 24 new songs, that for sure would take us a couple more years for do it. We try to play songs as they always have been done, but in the best way we can,. Just that, but with 2 new  guys you can find any differences, not a lot, but some small ones in some of the songs .

3.There has not been much in the way of new material in the last few years, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on the last few years?

As I told you,  last recording before this was in 2009 (well, not really because we made a recording in 2011, but we were not happy with it and is missing for us) In 2009 after a tour in Germany and Scandinavia our singer let the band(he was with us since 2004) so we focus in find a new one and only appear Dylan, a guy from US who was for a year in Spain, so we decide join him to the band for some shows in Spain and a tour, who was managed with the help from Andy from EveryDayHate and it took us to Germany, Czech Rep, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland  and then Dylan went back to US, This was in 2010, so again without singer…In 2011 Kristo join to the band as vocals and we made some shows  and even the recording I told u before, and also we played a show in Italy. At that time we start to have many “differences” with Juan, our drummer, who was in the band since the beginning…well this “differences” came with us  some time ago… and he didn t want to change it, so after a show in october 2011 we talk with him, and he let. Then while we were looking for a new drummer I start with another band, RAGEOUS INTENT and Kristo join this band with me too. DxPx was stopped for a year and then I offer Nico who was playing at that time in a band called VOMITANDO BILIS to play with us, and he say yes . As Kristo was in RAGEOUS INTENT we need a singer too and we offer to Alvaro who was in VOMITANDO BILIS too . We start to practice and select songs for a set list and we made a one week tour in UK and after that, we record the LP. This is why we have not make any recording for a long time.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Nothing special, just same Grind/crust/HC/punk topics like most of the grind bands, sung in spanish and as we are fucking lazy assholes we dont translate them  in our records…Sorry

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Disturbance Project'?
In 1990-92 were a grindcore band/project in our town that played just a show and record a 7” that never was released. Their name was UNCHALLENGED SUFFERING  and the tittle from that unreleased ep was “Disturbance Project” It sounds cool for me and it keep the way of bands that choose their names from another band albums or songs tittles, so I guess it was a good idea use it , and is our tribute for these guys that were playing grind in Madrid befote us

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

For me first time we played in Almeria(South of Spain) it was fucking great, we´ll play at the end of the year again, so I expect 8 years later will be at least as last time…I didn´t like most of our past shows. But most special shows are always when we play out of Spain and we meet people that we don t use to see here

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We love to tour. Last 2 tours were fucking great with these new guys in the band. One of the main reason we have a band is for touring. We arrive almost 1 month ago from our last tour  and we´ll star to think in a tour for 2015. The main idea is Czech Republic and Slovakia, but let´s see…Maybe France…Also we need to find time for it…Also I love do it together with RAGEOUS INTENT. Let s see what happens…

8.Over the years the band has been a part of a lot of splits, out with all of the bands that you have worked with on these albums, which one where you the most proud of being able to work with?
All them are special for me; I love all those bands  and is a pleasure to have splits with all them. I can say U RABIES  because it was the first and are great people, or PLF because are fucking great people too and we have play many times with them…Or SUBCUT &PLAGUE RAGES  because I love those brazilian bands…TERRORISMO MUSICAL fucking great people who we meet personally in Czech in 2008, RAS  friends for many years…FUCK  I can´t choose…ALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!

9.The new album came out on EveryDayHate, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
EDH already release our comp. CD,  and our split with RAS, so he is an old friend that also help us with our tour in 2010 and I know him since 2003, so… who better for this????? He is releasing a lot of great grindcore stuff, so perfect, and even alter the record releas ewe have obtain some extra help from him, so the best trice…

10.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore?
Maybe I turn too pesimist, but I think it  is going down. I think  interest in grindcore bands  is going down and with DxPx is the same. There are few people that keep it on , but for sure this, actually, is not fashion and not most  of the people DON T care about DIY grindcore bands. We dont mix our shit with thrash or metal riffs as the “biggest” grindcore bands do. Anyway Everydayhate has made a good job with the promotion and there are some nice reviews from our cd all around and we hope it keeps on and on

11.Are any of the band members involved with any other musical projects these days?
Alvaro Zamora (guitar) Is working in a project, but I guess not  grind , dont know a lot about it, just that he is doing something.
Alvaro Vivero(vocals) plays bass  in a Fast core PV grind  band that are starting now. Today I listen a rehearsal from them and they will kill!!!!!
Nico plays drums in a death metal band called BRAIN REMOBAL  and also just played drums for a Black death thrash band in the HELLHAMMER/ BATHORY style called LURKING EVIL
And me ,Gerardo,  play guitar in the crusty Grind band RAGEOUS INTENT as before mentioned

12.When can we expect new material and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Hopefully in October  we´ll record new stuff for a couple of 7” with CRUEL FACE  from Brazil and BLOODY PHOENIX from US and for a  kind of tribute to NAPALM DEATH ´S scum on tape. Make those splits is a great pleasure for me!!!! You cannot expect any new from us,…more of our grind crap, we just try to make a better recording than ever before, with a more powerful sound and we´ll work hard for it. It´ll contain 6 songs from our missing 2011 recording plus other stuff we wrote in the past, but never play or record and already we have a new song writing by our drummer(first time that anyone who wasn´t in the original line up write a song) by the way, is fucking great…10 songs done, we have to write  a couple more in this month and maybe an SOB cover…

13.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Well, for DxPx I must to say that our main influence and “anti-influence” was DENAK. When we start, two of the formers were in DENAK, so if we want make a new grindcore band, it must to sound different to it, just for not to do the same with both bands, so when we  write a song, it couldn t sound like DENAK. When we start with DxPx I remember to talk about NASUM, Inhale/Exhale and previous stuff as an influence and about we must to write like that. It was not bad at all for me, but I was(and still and forever) more into  AGATHOCLES, ROT, CARCASS GRINDER, EXCRUCIATING  TERROR …and all classic grindcore style bands. Actually we have already a lot of stuff in the past and when we write new shit, we just think that it must to sound similar to it, just keep the style

14.What are some of your non musical interests?
All my free time I keep it for my bands. We all have “normal” lifes, so boring apart from the bands…
15.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
First of all, millionx thanx for doing this interview!!!! If anyone is interested in any DxPx stuff get in touch with Everydayhate Records. Cheers and Grind
