1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
We just were playing live some shows and making all the things that we must do when an álbum is about to be released, you know, pics, videos, interviews, etc...
2.You have a new album coming out in October, 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?
The sound is slightly different this time. We recorded in a great studio (Mpire) probably the best we ever had and the mastering by Brad Boatright was great too. The songwriting and the style of the band didn't change too much just the influence of our new drummer Erik, thats allowed us to do things we'd never did before.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
This album lyrics are all about the people that works everyday in disgusting jobs, handling cadavers, operating sick people, etc...There's a lot of people working hard to avoid we see the death, suffering or sickness as they really are. So, the funny thing is many people thinks "Gore" is serial killers, psychopaths etc, but for us the real gore are all these workers.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Haemorrhage'?
Haemorrhage is just a medical word. It's when the blood runs out of veins or vessels. We got this name for our band a lot of years ago cause it was related with blood and cause we liked only the band names with only one Word, like Death, Autopsy, Carcass, etc...now many bands use long names like "Bring me the Horizon", "Bullet for my Valentine" or "I went to the supermarket and bought 100 beers" we don't like that...hahaha.
5.The band has been around since the early 90's, what is it that motivates to keeping going after almost 3 decades?
We love what we do. We love music. And also we feel the love of our fans, even if we are not Iron Maiden we have die hard fans that support 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?
We played in the most of worlds best festivals: Obscene Extreme, MDF, NDF, Party.San, Brutal Assault, With Full Force, etc...I remember the show at WFF 2002 for example. We usually played for 500 people max, and we got on the stage and there were 80000 people there. We almost shit in our pants. We usually perform with blood and surgical clothes.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?
No, we wont do a proper tour, playing every night cause we don't like that, but we are already booked for some of the best festivals in Europe and surely we would be in US again.
8.Over the years you have been a part of a great amount of splits, can you tell us a little bit more about the bands you have shared these recording with?
Yes, with good bands as Impaled, Exhumed, Dead Infection, Dead, Nunslaugther, Gutalax, Rompeprop, etc...
9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of gore/grind?
Incredible. We met diehard fans in Europe, US, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Japan, everywhere...we met many people with our logo or our artworks tattooed on their skin...even one guy tattooed our faces! hahaha...we usually find many fans dressed in surgical clothes at our gigs. We know personally many fans that are supporting us since we started. That's the best thing for me.
10.Are any of the band members currently involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?
Yes, I know our drummer Erik is playing with other bands, Ana and me have 2 bands: Steelforce (heavy Metal) with ex-Carcass guitarist, Carlo Regadas, and Depopulation Department (Punk/Crust)...Ana is also recording covers for her solo Project. You can find this on YouTube.
11.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Thats something we never thought about. Really. We just think in the next gig or the next song.
12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
The most of the bands I listen now are the same bands than 20 years ago.
13.What are some of your non musical interests?
I love football (soccer). Playing and watching.
14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks a lot, you are the gore!!
