INTERVIEW WITH MAX (HOMICIDE HAGRIDDEN) (THRASH METAL)



1. How would you describe your music?
(Max) There is a phrase that  i use to describe Homicide Hagridden's music ,THRASH WITH NO COMPROMISE,nothing special in my opinion nothing  but that perfectly sums up what our music is.


2. What gave you the idea for the single title?

I came to know talking to a friend of this experiment done in the United States in the seventies, which was given the name of EFFECT LUCIFERO. I found the topic interesting and I used it for the lyrics of the album without criticizing whether it was positive or negative.I preferred to think of the subject as one of the many facets of human beings, capable of creating wonderful things but also of unnameable bestialities sometimes.


3. Do you work together with others in the writing process?
Usually I propose the ideas, then in some cases the development with the band while sometimes I already clear in mind how the song will sound. However, there is no precise method, everything comes from instinct sometimes.


4. How much time to do you take record songs?
Not too long a time, I like spending a little more time looking for a type of sound suitable for the atmosphere of the new material.


5. Does this release differ from past music releases? How?
the main difference in my opinion is the natural evolution of music from the previous album, both in the sound phase, both in songwriting.The previous album "US" was perhaps more immediate during all phases from the composition to the recording.
EFFECT LUCIFERO has more melodic and more articulated parts and i really like this  but the greatest satisfaction is that those who have listened to it welcomed it very well and this can only make me really like it


6. Do you like to change it up for each release with lyrical themes?
I honestly can not stand being monothematic, there are so many topics to talk about today, perhaps stronger and more current that in the past because they pose me reflections, many question marks that do not find or will find solutions, I think that mankind is very little thoughtful and that since its appearance on the planet has not much evolved after all.

7. Where do you draw your influences and inspirations from?

just look around every day to find out something. It is not difficult to find inspiration or a spark that gives the way. Sometimes even reading a book, or hearing a sound or being in a situation that attracts attention. There is not something in particular that creates inspiration, we are so bombarded every day by news of all kinds where inspiration is the least of problems.
Another issue is composing, because I need to isolate myself to stay focused and create something that gives satisfaction to me and that I hope it will please those who will listen to that idea.

8. What has been the most enjoyable thing you have done as a musician/singer?

I think when we played with Napalm Death years ago, five minutes before starting our set, the room was completely empty. I told the guys what I had seen and when we jumped on the stage we were facing 600 or 700 people. I rolled my eyes because I did not believe it, then we started and for 30 seconds the situation was really critical for the emotion, then everything came by itself and in the end Barney gave me a high five and it was beautiful.


9. What do you feel is the biggest challenge going forward with your career?
the one that has yet to come, I know I'm trivial, but I really think so.


10. What do you enjoy outside of music?

Painting,comics,drawing all forms o farts in general.
