After some short hiatus, ARCHIV HATE interview magazine is back. It took an extra month to build this issue, but as you can see it turned out twice as heavy as previous one. Our purpose in this life is to help others, and I can’t hide my bloody surprise that #05 magazine issue brought together the largest number of people, sharing their effort, beliefs and visions – thank you for being useful! I must admit, that this was truly amazing year! With no clear plans for this summer it turned out pretty busy: tons of gigs, discovering bands, meeting new people & reaching personal milestones. Best summer in last 20 years! For the first time in my life I saw metal giants CONVERGE & ROTTEN SOUND. Yeah, I’m a lucky punk, it was a blast!

Also, was attending badass metal festival, probably biggest in Baltics, all mighty DEVILSTONE in Lithuania with more than 30 highly regarded bands. Friend of mine and travel partner Edvins Eisimonts agreed to share his experience about this year VELNIO AKMUO aka. DEVILSTONE, featuring photo essay by Gediminas Bartuška. You ever thought about the events and coincidences that unite us and shape our culture? Discover a wonderful piece of history and facts about the Latvian underground music scene, written by Inese Tone. Yeah, btw, new best band is ANNA KIJEVĀ – complete chaos with potent dosage of madness. If you dig it, that’s awesome! -ARCHIV HATE, August 2013

Interview with

A decade long band history, more than 20 records in their discography, still to a lot of people unknown UK based experimental metal/sludge outfit Spider Kitten, started in Newport, back in 2001 as a two-piece band with no drummer. One of the longest standing members are Chi Lameo who agreed to share more facts about the band life. Enjoy! Spider Kitten started as a duo back in 2001 and ever since then having gone through many experimental lineup changes. So you’re finally complete? I think we finally are. At least for a while. It's entirely possible we'll add more musicians to this line-up in the future, but the four of us, me, Al, Chris and Rob, seem to have found a groove. Every band practice is fun and easy. I really enjoy listening to them all play, and that's a big thing for me.

shop. That was fairly odd. Other than that we've played generator parties on mountains. I'd love to do a show in a Masonic Temple. That'd be pretty cool.

“Making Paradise Possible” blown my brains out! It’s happening every time I play this 33:43 long masterpiece. Tell me everything about this song! Title, lyrics, length, cover art. The song came about as a jam. At the time Al and me were playing with Huw from Al and Rob's other band, Pus, on drums. We just booked some studio time, went in and Video for the first track on the Cougar Club “Twin Obscenities” was filmed in a played 3 30 minute tunes as a three piece and picked the best one. From listening church - what you have to offer God in that initial instrumental track I got the exchange of the video shooting in His idea that it kind of sounded like house? ascending to heaven. I've been fascinated We actually own that church. We bought it with Jim Jones and Jonestown for years, to turn into a studio, but basically the and I liked the idea of trying to show local council weren't into it and we what that final day might've been like weren't able to do it. We figured we for one of Jim Jones' followers. I really might as well use it for a video. tried to treat the subject with some Church is definitely one of the peculiar respect and show that as well as being afraid, these people thought they were places, where to play a heavy music. going to heaven. There would've been a Different sounding and feels volatility. whole range of emotions going on and I I'm a very devout athiest, but I love wanted to try and reflect that in the Christian music and imagery. music. I called it Making Paradise Possible, because that's what Jim Jones Where's the strangest place you've been was to them. A facillitator. It's a playing a gig? really interesting subject and there's We once played a gig in an abandoned shoe lots of information out there about it


SPIDER KITTEN www.facebook.com/spdrkttn spiderkitten.bandcamp.com if people are interested. The spoken voices you hear in that song are taken from an actual recording from Jonestown made on the day that the mass suicide happened. It's chilling stuff.

reviews - most vivid and striking comment on this record? All the reviewers have pretty much said that it sounds like a really heavy Alice In Chains with prog pretensions, and I'm totally cool with that. It is really nice to be getting some press. We've never really worried about it before, but now that people like Terrorizer and Metal Hammer are paying attention it feels good.

What is your favorite piece that you've recorded? Why? It's usually the most recent thing we've done. So, at the moment, it's Cougar Club, which came out in January this year. I have a real soft spot for the song Sensual Predator from our split with 2 new songs were recorded live in Atomck. It's kind of our Pink Floyd Cardiff. New stuff coming out soon? homage. I still really like it. We're writing a new album at the moment. It's going to be a double album and it's We’re a half a way through 2013 and going to take a while to realise there’s pretty much of everything – new properly. For the first time ever we're bands, tons of new releases. What’s your actually playing songs live for a while favorite releases so far and did you before recording them. It's a totally discover anything new recently? different way of working, but I'm really I am pretty terrible at checking new enjoying it. We've talked about quickly stuff out. I'm not hugely interested in recording an EP as cheaply as possible what's popular right now. I tend to pick and putting that out to keep everyone up on stuff 3 or 4 years after it's going until we've finished the album. I happened. There's some bands we've played think we'll probably get something else with that are putting out amazing stuff out this year. at the moment: Atomck, Bismuth, Witches Drum, Undersmile, Sonance, Pohl, there's Thank you very much for taking time to do loads more. It is reassuring to turn up this interview. There’s a lot of place to a gig and like all the bands on the bellow, feel free for anything you would bill. like to add! Stay in school, listen to Jethro Tull. Cougar Club received a lot of good

“Referring to Alternative.lv article *„Ātri, skaļi un bez žēlastības – Kriegopfer” (Fast, Loud & Furious – Kriegopfer) the comments that have followed has shown that the alternative music community has grown a new generation who do not fully understand its history. I would like to change this because the foundation of Latvian underground music history is exciting and inspiring to the artists of today. It is so exciting that I decided to devote my bachelor thesis to the Latvian underground music scene. Over the years my work has gathered dust but I feel it is time to share my views with a wider audience. Of course it all started earlier, but I'm fascinated by the 90’s, so I will focus on this decade. The 90’s are not only special for the music scene but for Latvia’s history, regaining their independence everything was new, fresh and full of hope, tangled with fear undoubtedly contributed to the creative sector. In addition, this is the time period that I managed to experience by myself.” -Inese Tone


UNDERGROUND LATVIAN MUSIC

BY INESE TONE

In the 90’s the development of the Latvian music scene is intriguing. Until the restoration of independence, one of the major musical goals was the protests against the existing authority which tried to contain and control the music scene and representatives of other artistic activities, 20th century, 80’s, rock and punk rock become the third version of the Latvian national awakening movement of youth - city dwellers. The music texts preclude the Soviet socialist ideology and its unrealistic nature, social issues, inter-ethnic relations “(Dennis Hanovs.”Introduction. The subculture or counterculture?”), then in the beginning of 90’s it was no longer the case, they had to look for new objectives and ideas. In the Soviet Union, any band wanting to tour had to go through a special committee where every song was checked and censored or banned completely. The band had to be linked to a particular place, recreation centers, companies


or factories. In the 90’s bands suddenly had complete freedom but what, how and why do it? This led to some confusion, because they no longer had to prove something to anyone else, but only themselves - their talent, creativity. Music journalist Uldis Rudaks was asked to describe 90’s in Latvian music, he says: “90’s for the Latvian music is complicated time. Latvians had to show what they are capable of. 80’s was still in the Soviet Union, there were bands, to be socalled awakening bands - *Pērkons (Thunder), *Līvi (Livs), Jumprava. They each had the anti-Soviet songs. Then all of a sudden no longer any restrictions - no more censorship, you are allowed to do whatever you want. You can go abroad to buy good musical instruments, be written in foreign studies - if you have the money. It was the test of Latvian music scene and musical creativity”. Music continued to be made. Such mainstream bands like Jumprava, Līvi, Pērkons, as well as the underground music major influences such as *Dzeltenie Pastnieki (Yellow Postman), Zig Zag and other bands. Since 1985, Inokentijs Mārpls is one of the Latvian underground music scenes most visible and influential bands. Then gradually other bands started to arise, which was not intended to become known to the general public. For example, underground band drummer Maris Čistovs aka. *Šakālis (Jackal) was asked “whether underground culture is looking for its audience - it wants to say something, or it’s been played for fun?” to which he replied “This is most certainly just having fun!”. In 1989 Jānis Daugavietis and friends set up a rock band entitled *“Ir Bijuši Mati Un Izbijuši“ (The hair was, and is no longer). Along with band members they began to look for like-minded people to create new bands. - *Bez Greznības (Without the Luxury), *Tukša Muca (Empty Cask), Silvis and Inokentijs Mārpls were formed.


In the beginning of 1991 they had the opportunity to set up a rehearsal room at the old water tower, at Āgenskalns. In time other bands joined and created a DIY music studio *”Tornis“ (Tower) where till 1995 the music was recorded with old amateur equipment. At about the same time something similar happened in Kuldiga – Kūldiga’s underground music scene dates back to 1990 or even 1989 when Edgars Embergs and Māris Muitnieks became interested in independent music. Edgars Embergs said in an article “Kas ir NEKAC?” – “We were all obsessed with the need to listen to and play pretty crazy music by the same little we had heard - actually read more about it”. We founded illegal youth organization KAMPA – *“Kuldīgas Agresīvās Mūzikas Pazinēju Apvienība” (Kuldīgas aggressive music connoisseurs association), who looked for other new Latvian bands with the purpose of identifying them and join the organization LAMP – *“Latvijas Agresīvās Mūzikas Pazinēju Apvienībā” (Latvian aggressive music connoisseurs association). Between the first bands, they established many more contacts - Ir Bijuši Mati Un Izbijuši, Bez Greznības, Silvis, *Nejautā (Don’t Ask), Inokentijs Mārpls, Tukšā Muca, *Nelaimīgā Dzimšanas Diena (Wretched Birthday) and more. These two organizations – “Tornis” in Riga and “NEKAC” in Kuldiga – had a key role in the underground music subculture information exchange, like-minded gatherings, organizing events and making studio recordings. Uldis Rudaks says about 90’s underground subculture: “Invaluable contribution to the development of the underground music scene was by “Tornis”. New bands were able to use the rehearsal space and be written almost for free. “Tornis” had great significance in the interaction with the Kuldīgas underground music scene“. Another person worth mentioning is Inokentijs Mārpls group leader


Raimonds Lagimovs, commonly known as *Dambis (Dam) - He made an enormous contribution to Latvian underground cultural creation, distribution and preservation. Over the years Dambis was called a Latvian underground music grandfather or father of Latvian punk rock. He became interested in music from the age of four when he used to stomp on the kitchen boiler. Raimonds Lagimovs is not just a part of the band Inokentijs Mārpls, he runs a show “Bitīt' Matos” on the Radio NABA, making Latvian independent band sample *“Odekolons” (eau de Cologne), but also organizes gigs and participates in various other projects. One of the longest is a project entitled *”Amorālā Psihoze“ (Immoral Psychosis), which plays experimental avant-garde music. At the end of the 90’s and 21st century Dambis organized a series of gigs at club “Pulkvedim Neviens Neraksta”, they occurred once or twice a month on Thursday, called *“Uz jaunu rītu” (A New Morning) and were themed, for example, one week invited bands were of the one Latvian city, another evening playing Latvian Bardi and so on. Shortly similar concerts, titled “Bitīt' Matos” were organized at the club Depo, Dambis also worked as a Saxafons club music manager. When asked Maris Čistovs (Sirke, Inokentijs Mārpls) and Karlis Purviņš (One Voice, *Vismaz trīs vārdi (At least 3 words)), with what they associate the 90s of underground subculture, the answer was: "Unquestionably depressed. Had kind of impression that tomorrow all this can disappear. Felt doomed. Listening to 90’s underground music these feelings does not leave". They have no doubt that this period has left a legacy in the history of Latvian music, Karlis Purviņš laughed, "Current emo-youth should not be given to listen " Kartāga", they’ll hang themselves”.

Maxime Taccardi Artworks - Drawings and paintings from the beyond. Sorrowful soul, fears, passions, darkness, hate, religion, negativity, sacrifice. That’s just part of so-called reality. Interview with Mr. Taccardi: +Our daily life is surrounded by dark music and the arts are an integral part, which complement each other. Watching the entire collection of your artwork, it transforms into sound - it sounds like a black-metal, it's a visual aspect of this genre. It can be associated to black metal because of the thematic. My art and black metal deal with the same approach: darkness, hate, religion, negativity etc... But what I try to create is what I feel of this world, what I witness and also what I experienced. My past made my art as it is today and I would probably not be an artist if I experienced a different life. Traumas, fears, passions, disgust are all elements to create and transcend their primal comprehension. My art is a catharsis to me, it purifies me in a way of my negativity. It has to be exorcised, spread on whatever support it can be. It is interesting that you said it transforms into sounds because I run a project named K.F.R which can be interpreted as if my paintings where speaking. Their chaotic expressions have their equivalent in sound: K.F.R ( page: www.facebook.com/KfrKafir) My paintings were not enough for me to extract the negativity, it had to scream, to transforms in sound like you said. K.F.R is the soundtrack of my torments, ugly, raw, depressive, hateful, it is an annihilation of my human condition. The first album entitled “ANTI” will be out on vinyl in September and later on cd, it has been a therapy for me, a journey into my rotten soul. Here is one of the videos I directed for that project, it can be considered as a short experimental film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFAyHg7UaNA +The truth is excruciating - I think it's a best combination of words describing your artworks. This type of artistic expression


the mass of the public rejects, but they actually deny reality rather than a person's artistic expression. Exactly, people are afraid of a certain truth, the fact that we are all dying and rotting every new day. Death is our finality, it is a part of us, we stay dead longer than alive anyway. Some people are scared about what I do because they don't understand it. They think I’m mad etc... I received a lot of hateful messages even some of people wishing my death. We are surrounded by hypocrisy, humans became worms, always judging others and criticizing all the time. They can't even read between the lines. The doctrines they worship, the governments they elect lead them to their own death but they can't see that. The worse enemy is what govern us, they made us hate ourselves so it became easier to control us. Like worms, ready to embrace a sacred lie. This is one of the reasons why I create, of course I know it can't change anything but if only one person can perceive my goal then it means I didn't do that for nothing. For me art has a goal, it has to make people think and free them of their chains. +Violence is an environment that appears to raise this kind of art. Every single piece of your art is vulgar and violent, but it’s true and silent - silent as death. Violence is a part of humanity, we are born in pain and our death is rarely glorious. Violence is a taboo but this is how babylon governs us in this world. But I have to admit I find violence attractive in a way, it gives me some sort of pleasure. Pain gives a certain meaning to this life, it makes us feel we are alive. +Death is the symbol of life and immortality. Theology, religious symbols, occultism, people's faith - it's your way of expression and source of inspiration?


Death is my muse because it represents our deepest fear, dead people are all around us, we are already dead if you look at it in a cosmic way. The light of the stars is shining when we look at the sky but in fact, most of them are already dead when their light finally comes to us. Religion is fascinating because it creates fanaticism, but also because it has some truth in it. Occultism is a part of it. God is darker that what we think... +Inspired by blood? Blood is ambivalent, it can be seen as life but also as death when it's spread on the floor. I do those paintings in a ritualistic approach, very close to my own experiences, traumas etc. Pain is a part of the process, I cut myself with razor blades to extract my blood, it gives sense to the thematic of the painting, this is how I get the symbolism I want to give. I'm not a so called “artist�... By saying that, it means my art is not eternal in any way, it is just expression of my mortal feelings. Blood rots, it becomes brown as death, just like us. Why should we try to be remembered forever? Everything ends, it's a long process but inevitable. Art just makes it more acceptable.

by Edvins Eisimonts

VELNIO AKMUO aka. DEVILSTONE Lithuania! Metal rifs are played inconceivable combination of variations, where heavy music performance is at times incomprehensible, an event that unites different styles of music direction of adherents and admirers. Festival, music that awaits everyone who seeks refuge in a sound incalculable ranges in all its forms. Or you're just a random person you visited Lithuania to catch the moment and leave you wandered into this event attractive in person, or have conceived planned a trip to unexplored places. Welcome DEVILSTONE embrace! In any case, you're here and it's not preventable! Metalheads & headbangers from all around the world are invited to attend the annual event, which unite various country artists, including Scandinavian, Lithuanian, Polish, Latvian and other countries. Being into music since my childhood and seeking for new impressions, I could not refuse the opportunity to attend the DEVILSTONE. I’m a DEVILSTONE amateur, attending the festival for the second time. Personally my first DEVILSTONE was in 2012 and then I was blown away by the number of bands and artists, perceptions and emotions, as well as the festival as a whole. On the way to DEVILSTONE we were met by a dark clouds, which revealed the festival atmosphere and location, as the clouds were just above the place where we went. Can’t find the words to describe that landscape - only the views of the mass of the black skies. We are already very close to the festival. We are not the only one! Along the way, bunch of heavy music are sharing the road that runs along the cemetery. We also are almost there. Just a few more moments and we are inside. DEVILSTONE place itself, I think is a great choice and suitable for outdoor events - forest, relief, flowing river. Nothing can cause greater enjoyment - being in a forest, enjoying the music and support the natural sense of presence.

DEVILSTONE fest openers are local trash & black-metal bands CONFESSION & NYKSTA, after that lining-up same genre proponents, festival guests GOATWHORE (US) and EVIL (GB). During the day festival guests were able to enjoy the artistic workshops offered to try out and reflect the festival's process in pictures and drawings, or just simply visit the festival shops which offer a wide range, typical festival clothing and a range of signage. Friday! An unpleasant surprise was waiting for us due to the arrival of the some Latvian band. Organizers report that TESA has a problem with transport and set has been moved to Saturday. To minimize the grief, we lift off to buy some beer and snacks. Enjoying our snacks and sipping cold beer, our attention was stolen by couple dudes, who in the same way as we sat down at café benches, enjoying their beer and drew attention to the surroundings. Whether it’s KONGH from Sweden, our minds drowned in thoughts, trying to remember how these metal giants looks alive. Waiting for the Swedish WOLF. Heavy metal band, classic clothing, characteristic this genre's sound, the guys filled the stage area, guitar rifs brings us a little historical journey - a song dedicated to KYRSK submarine staff who lost their life in tragic accident. Heading to the East Stage to watch SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT. Saw the guys who have recently sat at the café table, slowly beginning to bustle to the stage. Looks like they are musicians!? Suspicions were confirmed when we saw the same buddies getting on stage for sound check. Funny, these guys are not from KONGH, but from SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT. Oh my! Set starts with a melancholic psychedelic sound. Brutal looking guys, face covered by long hair curls and cigarette smoke, rough guitar rifs - no mercy! However, the sound is excellent and fulfilled by ponderous vocals. A great musical sequences, a good stoner, in short terms. Next on stage are KADAVAR, rising from Denmark. Standing next to the guys from SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT (not talking, this shit is serious) with an interest watching KADAVAR performance, which itself brings about a large number of people. Psychedelic sounds of the artists makes unique atmosphere, enjoying a great musical experience under cover of darkness. In English charming look, the next on stage are representatives from UK - ORANGE GOBLIN. These four individuals called as ORANGE GOBLIN not only gathered around a lot of interested people, but also kept the spirit of the festival. Ben Ward, the vocalist of ORANGE GOBLIN perfectly coped not only with the musical performances, but also involved the audience in a number of vocal activities, including the classic festival audience decibel test, in which the audience shared in two parts (dudes & dudesses, eastside & westside), checking who are louder. Relentlessly compliments from ORANGE GOBLIN’s Ben: "Look at you, you all are f*king beautiful! You're awesome". Yeah, no doubt, we are indeed!

Nuotraukų autorius: Organizatorių archyvo nuotraukos


ORANGE GOBLIN guys kicked arse totally and made this festival more exciting. It’s a fact, these gentleman like crazy parties, this was the most outstanding performances of the day! At one time with the ORANGE GOBLIN, the West Stage was occupied by the Swedish band SHINING. It seemed that SHINING could gather more attention, however, ORANGE GOBLIN stole the soul of the festival and continued to party-hard, gathering even more people - there's some band playing down the hill, but true rock'n'roll party is here! And the madness continued, I'm sure, set was twice as long! @#$%! End of the day “Friday”. The third day of DEVILSTONE begins with two Latvian bands.. INDYGO climbing on stage at the same time as TESA guys. Finally, long-awaited has arrived! Ambitious and yet significant changes in weather, which looked like informal arrangement with TESA, and both are seeking to do something grand. With a short delay TESA characteristic sound created a musical atmosphere. Crowds of fans come from all sides to watch TESA performance. Sky turned black. Powerful sound invokes the forces of nature from above. Apocalyptic feeling takes over, the music changing rhythms and sounds of nature along with the visual effects. TESA is with us, bent trees with their massive sound, darkness took over the DEVILSTONE. Gradually begin to prepare for the Swedish KONGH performance. All well-known, but the intrigue evocative band has truly fascinated not only one listener senses. By the evening around great atmosphere and favorable atmospheric soundscape KONGH finally arrives on the stage with characteristic mood. Everyone admire taken over received a considerable dose of unholy water. Destroyer! Another great performance was by the Poland post-rock representatives, TIDES FROM NEBULA. Atmospheric and gentle tones generated sound range and led to think and sympathize. Great guitar rif complex, the heavy sound made everyone's heart shrink. Taken over by the storm of the moods, ENSLAVED shook previously acquired senses and brought to focus an iron and heart-rending sounds. Norwegians fulfilled home atmosphere. The DEVILSTONE once again succeeded, great band combinations and a range of good atmospheric mood, bystanders and musicians, taking into account the circumstances of the band's performances were changed, DEVILSTONE in terms of everything went smoothly. DEFINITELY SEE YOU NEXT YEAR! Gerai! -EDVINS EISIMONTS

ANOTHER END

is a French post-metal band, formed in November 2011 by ex-members Noisebleed and Wrath of the Golgoth. The music blends powerful and dark atmospheres, mixed by an angry voice. A bit of a history - You guys are exmembers of Noisebleed & Wrath of The Golgoth. Are there other earlier projects besides previously mentioned? For how long you’ll are in music business? Yes there were a whole bunch of other groups, like Stinky porx (noise), Burn our mind, (thrash death metal), horrid flesh (death metal). Each of us started to make music twenty years ago approximately. What inspired you to make music – your father of the heavy music? Most of our influences come from 80's and 90's heavy, thrash and death scenes, but also bands like Helmet or Faith no more... How did you came across each other and decided to start Another End? What’s the message behind the band name?

We all played in other bands before and we met at concerts or parties. For the meaning of "Another End", we must say that we have a rather pessimistic view of the future and the evolution of mankind. Another End is our wish, our hope that things move differently. For now it's wrong committed...our point of view. Band life is what you do for a living? Unfortunately no. We are all obliged to work to meet our needs and those of our families. It seems impossible to live in the music industry, especially at the moment. What would you sound like in America? Maybe "Deep as ass!!!" hahaha! Honestly we do not try to sound like any other band but rather create our own sound. Obviously, the bands we listen necessarily influence our sound.

“Whispers From” 4 songs describing the torments of a destroyed man caused by the abuse of his father. “Whispers From” title is deeply connected to "the end", "the past", "the light" and "the others" where each is an integral part of these abusive relationships. Yes it is a good summary! It's nice to see that you understand the direction we wanted to give this EP. It is based on various facts, the dark side of man, madness, disease, only happy things as you can see! We have more to say on these subjects rather than love, compassion or flowers! Haha Fests, tours, gigs for the 2013

summer, fall, winter? We try to set up a mini-tour for the end of 2013, but it looks quite complicated. For now we have three shows booked, they will be announced on our facebook page. We are open for any dates and labels. Any last words? Thanks to fanzines and associations worldwide that move their asses and help to the evolution of the underground scene! Feel free to visit our Bandcamp page to listen our new EP or our Facebook page for more info about us. Thank you man for the interest you have given us.
