Interview (from Taskigt Drag fanzine) / Swedish

Jag har bara hört eran demo 'Like a Bulldozer on Angeldust', har ni gjort något mer och har ni något mer pågång?

Vi har gjort en LP, "Faith & fear" som kom ut '89, sen har vi vart med på diverse samlingstaper och skivor. Demon "like a bulldozer..." kom ut maj '91 och nu i september '91 var vi i Sunlight studion och spelade in en ny demo som heter "She went to the butcher". I januari '92 ska vi in i en 8-kanalsstudio för att spela in lite nya ideer, samt en låt för en amerikansk samlings LP. Sen kommer vi fortsätta att skicka demos till 'zines, skivbolag etc.

Hur vill ni beskriva eran musik?
Det är ganska svårt. Många band säger att "vi är verkligen orginella", men jag tycker faktiskt att vi är det (jag med/red). Vi blandar så mycket olika musik så man vet aldrig vad som ska hända (precis/red). Just när man tror att man vet vad som kommer, bryter ett annat stick in eller nånting annat. Vi gillar nog att inte leva upp till förväntningar utan hitta på nånting nytt istället. Samtidigt så håller vi ju fortfarande på att forma "vår" stil. Vi gillar metal, men även mycket pop, så man vill ofta få in bra refränger och melodier till hårda och tunga riff.

Hur länge har Cemetarium funnits?
Som Cemetarium har vi funnits sen juni -88.

Vad har ni för favoritband?
Just nu, dec '91, så är det bl.a. Nirvana, D.A.D., Suicidal Tendencies, Voivod, Infectious Grooves, Smiths, Bad Religion, Bad Brains, The Doors, Public Enemy, Skidrow, Motörhead, Anthrax, Kate Bush & Frank Zappa (ganska blandat ja/red).

Har ni haft många spelningar?
Nej, tyvärr har det inte blivit så mycket den sista tiden, men tidigare har vi lirat en hel del. Nyligen tappade vi en gitarrist, och vi tycker inte att vi grejar endel solon som han gjorde. Så nu letar vi efter en ny gitarrist.

Favoritmat- & dryck?
Tja, McDonalds (va?! skärp dig/red), pasta, öl...

Framtidsplaner?
Världshit innan 1995 (lycka till/red).

Är ni nöjda med intervjun?
Ja, visst (bra/red).

Övriga tillägg?
Tack för att du ville ha med oss i ditt 'zine. Vår nya demo kan beställas för 25:-, lycka till med blaskan i framtiden och jag hoppas vi hörs igen. Hälsningar Lasse!


Interview (from Taskigt Drag fanzine) / English

I've only heard the demo 'Like a Bulldozer on Angeldust', have you done anything else?
We have made an LP, "Faith and Fear" which came out in '89, then we have been included on various compilations and discs. The demo "Like a Bulldozer" came out in May '91 and now in september '91 we were in the Sunlight Studio and recorded a new demo called "She Went to the Butcher." In January '92, we enter an 8-channel studio to record some new stuff, and a song for an American compilation LP. Then, we will continue to send demos to 'zines, record labels, etc.

How would you describe your music?
It is quite difficult. Many bands say that "we are really original". We mix so much different music so you never know what will happen. Just when you think you know what's coming, something else breaks in. We like to not live up to expectations but find something new instead. At the same time, we're still in shaping "our" style. We like metal, but also pop, so you often want to get in great choruses and melodies to hard and heavy riffs.

How long have Cemetarium existed?
As Cemetarium we have been together since June '88.

What is your favorite band?
Currently, Dec '91, it's such Nirvana, DAD, Suicidal Tendencies, Voivod, Infectious Grooves, Smith, Bad Religion, Bad Brains, The Doors, Public Enemy, Skidrow, Motörhead, Anthrax, Kate Bush & Frank Zappa (fairly mixed yes / red).

Have you had many gigs?
No, unfortunately, but we have played live a lot in the past Recently we lost a guitarist, and we do not think we make as great solos as he did. So now we are looking for a new guitarist.

Favorite food & drink?
Well, McDonald's (huh?! Sharpening up / red), pasta, beer ...

Plans for the future?
World hit before 1995 (good luck / red).

Are you satisfied with the interview?
Yes, of course (good / red).

Other extensions?
Thanks for include us in your 'zine. Our new demo is available for 25kr, good luck with the zine in the future and I hope to hear from you again. Regards Lasse!
