1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?
Hi there. During last time we are working on new stuff for second full album. Our drummer is 100km far from us, so it is little bit slower smile emoticon. And our second guitarist Paaveel left the band. We are still friends, he has other hobbies and it did not have sense to continue only in half.
2.Recnetly you have released a new split, 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?
Do you like it? wink emoticon This is from the same studio recording, if you mean split with Abortion and split with Narcoleptic. Split with Abortion is going to be released on CD and Cassette!! I am pleased that it comes out on tape. It is cult. wink emoticon It should be on 7EP, so there are 3 different songs and some added from split with Narcoleptic, cause it has only 6 minutes. And this stuff is from another studio than all our older releases. This is from Davos Records and „Shit autopsy“ and older stuff were from Hell Sound. New is realy blast, older have bigger atmosphere, hard to say what is better smile emoticon.
3.The band has been around since 2004 but so far has only released a demo, full length and been a part of a few splits, can you tell us a little bit more about the gaps in between releases?
Demo and first split with Mocovy Khameni were recorded with old drummer „Ritak“. Next with SCAT, was recorded with Dzizr, current drummer. After full „Shit autopsy“ was some dark time, during its we adopted new member Feelipee, b-ass. We played gigs, tour with Ultimo Mondo Canibale was awesome wink emoticon. And in the end it was 4 years till new record.
4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
They are some funny jokes about shit and drinking grin emoticon In past it was mainly about song´s tittles. But now I try add more lyrics, it sounds better and I like vocal more than befor. Topics did not change too much wink emoticon, but some times there are some shit from this shit world.
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Choked By Own Vomits'?
It is like a Czech proverb: Whoever digs a hole, alone in her falls. Or: Each make your own luck. And finally, a bad situation after the booze and the like.
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?
Uuuff... this year was awesome gig in Děčín (Cz). In past were awesome Leeds (Uk), Kolotočovo (Sk), Mountains of death (Swi), Obscene Extreme (Cz), Sokolov (Cz), Zverovision (Ukr) and more. People play music their love wink emoticon.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
This weekend (24-25.7.) we are going to Bratislava (Sk) and Total war fest in Hungary – Kormend. In September we will go do something like mini tour wink emoticon to Italy. During that we play from time to time in Czech rep. Next year, after releasing of second full, we want to go again into England.
8.Recently you where a part of a split with 'Abortion', what are your thoughts on the other band that had participated on the recording?
It´s legend of grind from Slovakia wink emoticon. We are friends cca 10 years. I like their music.
9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of grindcore?
What I noticed, it was positive. Hard to say more.
10.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
Me and bassist Felipe, we were playing project called „Cruel face of life“ (grind in vein of old Terrorizer, Napalm Death, Atrocity (US) … i hope wink emoticon now it is frozen... not much time for it and drummer have to solve other things in his life. Dzizr - drummer is playing long time with „Mocovy Khameni“ (crust grind), now they practise at minimum, but it is still alive. Befor he played „Umbrella“ too, realy cool gore grind. Pavel is continuing with „Bowel Fuck“, and Felipa played Cunnilingus too (grind, metal).
11.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
As I wrote we are working on new stuff and we want to release next full album next year. There are no plans how it has to sound, maybe like Choked by own vomits...smile emoticon It is natural evolution wink emoticon. Love to grind does not die, but no one becomes younger smile emoticon.
12.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?
Of course they are bands like Dead Infection, Agathocles... Regurgitate, Terrorizer... classic of grind. But no one man does not listen only one genre, and who saids he does, he is lying wink emoticon. We listen crust, d-beat, punk, death metal... I can not hide I love old Sepultura wink emoticon. Oldschool Sweden death metal is awesome and of course Floridian bands too... etc. In last time I found Suffering Mind, Archagathus, Unholy Grave, Masters Hammer...
13.What are some of your non musical interests?
Of course I love horrors especially old clasick things – The Thing (numero uno), The Fly, Alien-s, Predator, Hellraiser, Razorback, The Return of the Living Dead, Evil Dead... I collected zombie movies wink emoticon. Then of course listening of music and visiting gigs. Garden... and gardenparty grin emoticon. With one friend we smoked sausages and burn schnapps wink emoticon. Dzizr is alcoholic and supporter of underground scene. Both with Felipe are foolball-fans and Felipe is sportsman, he is playing footbal too.
14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Big thanx for interview. This year we are „celebrating“ 10 year of choked... nothing special is planed now, but we want to say thanx all people who supported us during those years and hope you will continue wink emoticon Thanx and cheers!
