interview with MAKE YOU HOPELESS

interview with a technical brual deathcore band from shanghai.


1.Can I get a back story on the band/band biography?
The band formed in oct. 2012. Now we are: Charity for vocal, xBrutalx for guitar and kerrygrind for drum machine, bass and production. We sounds like brutal death metal+technical death metal+breakdowns, we just call it modern death metal, or you can call it technical brutal deathcore. After we got stable members, we recorded our first song and posted it on the internet. Then BrutalWang from BrutalReign Productions found us, he wanted to help us to release our first EP. It took quite lots of time to work on the EP. Finally one year after the band formed , we released our EP ‘Desolation Of The Cerebral Labyrinth’.

2.What lyrical theme do you guys use in your music? What messages do you want to send?
Actually we don’t have lyrics. When we write songs we are imagining a horror story about soul struggling and mind weakness.

3. What bands have influenced your band and its sound?
Beneath the massacre, necrophagist, slice the cake, abominable putridity, all shall perish, despised icon, pathology, defeated sanity and many etc. it`s hard to list all of them in one page. Certainly suffocation is the earliest band who influenced us.

4.  What made you guys form a band?
we like death metal and deathcore, the reason is just so simple.

5.How do you guys feel about the classifications in metal? likedeathcore, metalcore and other subgenres and how some get a negative rep.
Some people love to argue which genre is classified in metal, and i am not against to it. Old school guys looking down on nu skool is a normal thing, I can understand it. But one thing is for certain, we only wants to make our sound more heavy, more brutal. however one day these nu skool metal or maybe core will be old skool, just like hardcore once influenced thrash. Actually we don’t pay much attention in tags, tags are for the guys who like those music.

6.    What song do you enjoy playing the most?
Kerrygrind:  In the current EP, I like the first song ‘Pathology of Cerebral Desolation’ 
xBrutalx:    I like ‘artificial suffering’ best. This song has pretty heavy groove, and some high speed riff, also it has really cool melody.
Charity:    ‘Imagined Helminth, Mind Controller’ is my favourite song. The song is telling a horror story of the society , something is always controlling our mind until death.
And we all like ‘ecstasy of despair’, it is written by 大傻鹿 from extreme rot (CH)

7. When not doing things with the band, what can you guys be seen doing? 
Kerrygrind is still not graduated, he is doing his last year in university. xBrutalx and Charity have their own jobs. When not doing things with the band, we do same things as other people.
Charity: I will listen to many genres of music, skateboarding and party with friends. Now I am learning to be a professional tattoo artist. 

8. What is your opinion on the current state of metal?

Everything is changing including metal. We have to admit that metal is mixing with other genres. Many death metal bands sound like deathcore now. Actually, breakdowns can make music more brutal more heavy and more changeable, isn’t it what extreme music want? But definitely too much breakdown will make it dull. Metal has many sub-genres and I am only familiar with several ones, so I can`t comment on them. 

9. What can fans expect to see from you in the future?

We are still a new band. we haven’t play live yet. After the release of the EP, we gonna play live and maybe take a tour. Also we will plan for our full-length album. Please like us on facebook and share our youtube video.
