Wardomized Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

We started of as a Crossover Thrash band in March 2014 with our old drummer Josh and Luke, we released a Crossover EP then started leaning more towards the death metal route with a final single from the band called Strained, we started leaning more towards Grindcore with the new line up that got together December 2016.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?

We were heavily influenced by Napalm Death old and new, Impetigo and early Nirvana on our new EP 'Forced To Eat From The Apple Tree' we recorded it live to get that dirty repulsive raw sound and we wanted to combine the intensity of grindcore with old school death metal and the sludgyness and sound of early grunge in there too especially with the track 'Blue, White and Black Flowers'

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

The lyrics are mostly about dealing with depression and other topics like that but we mix all that with horror film imagery

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

Our original drummer came up with the name it essentially means the war you struggle with inside your head every day

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

Best shows for us have to be that time we played with Gama Bomb at in Belfast, our shows around Belfast promoting our new release and over in Basque Country when we played Bilbao Deathfest 3 and a show in Vitoria

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

We are hitting France and Belguim for a tour in January actually so early start for us next year! also planning a European tour in April with our friends UK Grindcore band Boycott the Baptist

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

Well we are looking for a label to release our album we have started working on to be released in the future but so far we have been doing everything DIY

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

We got a great recpetion from 'Forced To Eat From The Apple Tree' I would say its the best we have done, our previous release 'Red Death Flows Through My Veins'  before that we liked but wasnt perfect it helped us relaunch the band with the new line up but we really found our sound on the new release and the tours are getting more regular and exposure so its been all good for us

9.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?

I (Eddie) do vocals in Ireland Hyper Thrash band Acid Age we are currently writing a new album at the moment, I also play guitar in Irish Crust Punk/Crossover thrash band Deathbus we are writing for an album at the moment too and just finished a Spanish and a UK tour over the last year, Mike our bass player plays bass for Irish Black Metal band Neamhni who are writing at the moment and released an EP at the start of the year.

10.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

Probably after summer next year maybe if we get enough time to write inbetween shows, either that or late next year will want to heave it out before 2018, we have a split coming soon with Disconnect and Shrapnel Meat too, We are going to continue where 'Forced To Eat From The Apple Tree' left off intense angry as all hell grindcore mixed with old school angry grunge

11.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?

Grindcore, Thrash Metal, Crust Punk, Grunge, so much more we love everything we are really influenced by stuff like Napalm Death, Sepultura, Morbid Angel, Deftones, Nirvana, Impetigo, Terrorizer, Therapy?, Anal Cunt we could go on for days if music has the right attitude and feel to it we love it, will also note that The new Cavalera Conspiracy album is probably my favourite album this year.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

We like to party hard and play Road Rash and Sonic
