Exegutor Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the bands since the recording and release of the new album?

Recording of full-length album is not a job for a couple of nights. Even when our new CDs were only being printed, we already had started to create new songs for the next album. This process is continuous. Also we have some shows to play, and we try to make some special program for each gig. So, we spend much time on making our live performance as perfect as possible.

2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Sound on our new album can be fully described with only one word - angry. It took us almost a year to transform recorded source tracks to final version. Of course, our professionalism and experience increases since first release till latest, but I would prefer to say that each our CD or EP has its own sound face and atmosphere. We proud of all of them.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

When we just created our band, we decided that there will be no gore-porn-shit and other "classical" grind themes in our lyrics. On this topic we are not like almost all of our grindcore colleagues from other bands.

Our current album lyrics have a focus on some typical features of our country and society, it is something like a postcard from Belarus. In future, I guess, we will find some other social and cultural issues to describe in our music. Of course, not a shit like "global warming" or "dollar dictatorship". We prefer to focus on some thin things, like robotization of our minds by gadjets and new techno-ethics.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Exegutor'?

That means nothing. Just a word. Maybe, it is as "exegutor" with "gut" root, maybe it has its origin from two-heads pokemon. No one remember currently.

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

I cant choose which were the best right now... I think for us it is better to play on wide stage, because our style of playing live is dynamic. We like to dance and jump and headbang, so our performance, I believe, looks like performance of alive people who really love their music and rocknroll at all.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Yes, we do. We have plans to play some local shows in the nearest future; talking about a far time - we plan to participate in some european fests. We are open to any touring proposals.

7.According to the fb page you are going to be on some tribute albums for Grossmember and Cerebral Turbulency, can you tell us a little bit more about your contributions to these compilations?

We respect these bands, so when we had an offer to make a tribute songs, we agreed immideatly. We took "False Unity" Grossmember song and "Kokos" by CT. It was a bit fun, because this song is on Czhech. In general, we love to play covers, especialy on old black metal bands. In our career we even played covers on Dio and Scorpions in grindcore way.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore and crust?

Let be sincere - we are not world known band, but we regulary have only positive feedback from all over the world. Of course, we try to promote ourselves online as much as possible, so I believe in future stream of positive fluids from all countries will only rise.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We discuss this question almost on every our rehearsal session. We want to make a bit more experiments with genres, but our roots are grindcore and we will never play some modern stuff. We are oldschool band and it will be forever.

10.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?

First of all, there were grindcore bands: Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, Terroraiser, Carcass, czhech and german grind scenes. Also we can notice classic death metal: Cannibal Corpse, Six Feet Under, Death. We are big lovers of old school black metal: Venom, Mayhem, Darkthrone etc. And, of course, we do not listen to only extreme music. We are fans of Metallica, Slayer; we like rocknroll and psychobilly, punk rock etc. We try not to close ourselves on any genres borders.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?

Two of us are IT specialists in real life, our drummer is a high qualified builder and our guitarist works in logistics. Also we all like to travel and try to combine it with our tours.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Listen to music and be opend minded! When you close your mind - there becomes queue of politics, marketologists, ideologists etc. and all they want to put their shit on your closed mind. So it is up to you to be free! And listen to fucking Exegutor!
