HOMICIDE HAGRIDDEN   THRASH METAL FROM ITALY Band Questions answer by MASSIMO MODA    
Please introduce yourself and the band members briefly? Hi i am Max and i play guitar and sing in Homicide Hagridden My brother and producer of all album is the drummer Moda Stefano On bass guitar Valerio Possetto and on the other guitar Fabio Insalaco.   What does the band name mean and how do you get it? (Max) I always write the lyrics of the band.most of them concern social issues but I wanted to tell the situation or the moment from an external point of view, not referable to any of the parties involved. Hagridden is just a kind of phantom that floats around the scene and describes it without judging what is right or wrong. If I remember correctly there was a band with this name and we decided to put in front of Homicide, it all sounded good so we decided for this version   Where and how was the band founded? (Max)We are from Torino our home town and   the band was founded in 1994 by my brother and i,we started with playing some songs of the historical bands that still tread the stages of half world like metallica, ironmaiden on all, to become familiar with the instruments, but immediately we started to compose our music with the first demo SEQUENCE OF DEATH   Have you played in other bands before? Personally no Homicide Hagridden absorbs all the time I can devote to music   Was it hard to find suitable band members who fit musically and humanely with the band? This is a question to be answered for a month ... but I briefly summarize ..when we were young it was full of guys willing to do, get involved, get on the van and leave to play without any kind of condition, we went everywhere, then obviously the streets are divided by a thousand reasons, but with some guys we are very friends, with others we have truncated any relationship ... today if you are looking for a musician, the first thing he asks is how much money you can give him, the music and the history of the band does not matter ... it is difficult to relate to people like that, but fortunately we found a fair balance and let's move on   What does the band name mean? The name refers to a probable newspaper title referring to a violent event as are homicides What are the lyrics about and who of you is writing them ? The lyrics speak mainly of social issues or violent situations and i write them all, it is a relief valve Which bands inspired you and how would you describe your music to someone who has never heard a sound from you? Many bands have inspired us, from the glorious Deep Purple to the Maiden, Metallica, Death, Slayer and many more and I like to say that the music of Homicide Hagridden can be summed up in one sentence Thrash with no compromise!!!   Why should people listen to our music? Music is a creative process, something that you feel inside and takes shape with the notes, if this is also a recipient of those who listen and receive the same feelings that gives us something fantastic, this means sharing sensations and energy! I hope that Your debut album Dead Black Sun is from 2004.How satisfied are you with the album today and what is your favorite song on it? Dead black sun was the first album released by a label. Obviously we were very happy with this, but it was the worst experience that could happen to us. The album came out after several years from the signing of the contract, with a different mastering that totally ruined our initial idea, all without asking permission! Listening to it today I think those songs had great potential and I think the top song of that album is just the title track, and to be honest I'd like to record it again !!!   Eight years later, the second US album hit the market. why did it take so long and how successful was the album? From Dead Black Sun to Us the band has recorded several demos and songs for the digital market only ,and sincerely what was needed after the great disappointment with DBS was to stay on stage, we had to find a stability that only the live could give us. We played with many famous bands like Samael, Napalm Death, Vader, Keep of Kalessin, Exumed, and many more in the meantime we built our recording studio ORION RECORDINGS STUDIO, to which we had to spend a lot of time to make it operational.   In 2016, Effect Lucifero appeared in digital form. Why will the album be published again in 2018? We have received interest from some labels and we have decided to print it officially, from there the agreement with the Goatmancer   How far have you come up with new songs and when can we expect the next thrash thunderstorm from Italy? The next album is being written, if everything is done by 2019 it will be available   In some reviews you have been compared with slayer and kreator how much can you live with it when I tell you since the Slayer from Italy? The bands you mentioned are our greatest references and with the Kreators we also had the pleasure of sharing the stage on a couple of occasions. I can tell you that the combinations of our band to these giants ovviamnete makes me glad, but like all bands each one runs its own way   What was your first concert as a fan? And what memory do you have of it? METALLICA/MEGADETH/SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and other bands in   1992. There were other bands that interested me more, but the economic possibilities did not allow me to see concerts in other cities, so I took advantage of that opportunity to see more groups together   in my town, and that was the first one!!!i remember Metallica's sound,,,fucking awesome!!!   What were your live highlights and with which bands did you play? We were lucky enough to play with many bands of a certain caliber and professionalism Napalm Death, Kreator, Vader on all... bands that put us at ease, without making the gap that exists between a band like them and smaller like Homicide Hagridden   Which band would you like to play live with and why? Personally Slayer and Metallica,because the level of professionalism is so high and you can't fuck inthis situation   With what do you earn your money except with the music? We have a daily job and money for the bands come out from this   How important are social media for you as a band? A lot but the best thing are concerts,that's the real contact with people   What would you (her) want to achieve with the band? I'd like to play a big tour   What do you think about the Italy Metal scene in general? Don't like to be honest   Maybe you can recommend some bands from your area? No comment i am sorry   PERSONAL QUESTIONS !   Where did you grow up and how was your childhood? i grow up in different places due to my father's job,but have to say thanks   to my parents for keeping me and my brother with them all the time,maybe this   saved us from a dramatic situation in 80's and 90's when drugs come out that killed young guys we hanged out!!we are lucky!!   How was your school time you were rather the good student or the break clown ? I remember there was a small room with some musical instruments, I ran away from classes to go there, as long as I could, it was my world   How did your parents react when you started making metal music? did they support you and how do you feel about your music today? because of what was said of the metal and its references, satan, religion, violence and all these under useless speeches, at the beginning it was not easy, but my brother and I have insisted very much to have our first tools .. ... once my parents complained that we spent too much time playing without going out with friends, but we did not care (smile), we had found our direction!!!They are happy now and when they can they came to see us showing their love to us,that's amazing   Would you be successful in making music as a musician? I would be a liar if I told you no ... the best thing that can happen in this business is to have the trust of the fans, if this happens it means that your message has arrived and if we could live our music it would be the best   Are you someone who loves the hustle and bustle of the big city? or rather looking for peace and relaxation in nature? I am absolute for peace and nature... if I can avoid the chaos I do it   Do you actively practice sports or are you more of a passive spectator? I practice bodybuilding and running   When it comes to your physical well you can cook or let you cook for you I live alone ,have to cook and that's fun   What does your environment tell you about your passion for metal (friends / family / colleagues) ? Basically i don't listen in to much in to other comments,because metal world is so different   from the rest and people don't understand this ,,,so i avoid to speak   about it because this piss me off all the time...   How do you see the problem with the haters on the internet who have to announce their mental garbage in anonymity always and everywhere? You know..internet   gave everyone the opportunity to say what they think, most criticize without foundation and knowledge of the real problems, it is up to the intelligence of the people not to follow the comments of these experts of the moment, because now it is a radicalized system and incontrovertible ...   What do you think about the internet in general? a blessing or a curse? it is the invention of the century in my opinion, people have never been so close, but at the same time so distant. From my point of view it is useful but like all things it should be used with intelligence   What would you personally like to do in your life? Play music,listen in to it,have fun with my pets   Which question would you like to have answered and why? Wow have no idea to be honest   Your top 10 all time album faves MASTER OF PUPPETS REIGN IN BLOOD POWERSLAVE SLAUGHTER OF THE SOUL ULTIMATE SIN SYMBOLIC 5150 THE GATHERING SOUND OF PERSEVERENCE PIECE OF MIND your top 5 albums in time   !
