these labels working in comparsion?
NAP is actually doing something for us. The label VoW is more or less dead
in my opinion. They spend most of their time working with their
distribution and they have no persons dedicated to promote their own bands.
NAP is interested in how their bands are doing, they're located here in
Norway and know what's important to make a band work.
I think much magic in todays Metal has gone lost since it has become so
outwatered. Do you feel your type of industrialized Metal music is a bit
more modern and fits more to the new millenium than the traditional Metal
We've been doing industrial stuff since 1993. Some metal bands are able to
develop in cool directions, but I guess you're right when you say that
there's lot of more interesting stuff happening on other scenes - not
necessarily the Metal scene.
Do you feel like your music is taking Metal a step further?
Metalwise I think we are. Other metalbands are picking up loops and samples
just the way we've been doing the last 6 years. It's important for the
genre, cause otherwise it would be kind of boring. Anyway, some bands
should remain the way they are, cause development doesn't suite them.
In the info sheet we got it says that you are playing "Apocalyptic
Industrial Cyber Metal". How do you want people to interpret Red
Harvest's music after such a definition?
It's the music made after the atomic winter. The fight between man and
machines. Red Harvest - The choice of the new generation.
There weren't any lyrics along with the promo version so I was wondering
what the lyrics are dealing with on "Dark Cold Matter", and what
about the songtitle "Move Or Be Moved" which perhaps could be
interpreted as a matter of racism by someone?
The lyrics are on the web. www.redharvest.com
The lyrics are about being fucked up and dropped dead by machines, your own
head, drugs and assholes that think they're a lot better than you. Red
Harvest has nothing to do with racism. "Move Or Be Moved" is the
song for the people that want to kick some rich motherfucker in the nuts.
It's been about 8 years since your debut album was released. How do you
think your music has developed since then?
been doing so many strange things. Due to that, our fans tolerate what we
do musically in a larger scale. That makes us develop a lot easier and it
also makes us willing to take bigger "risks". Our music has become more and
more chaotic, and I'm afraid it's gonna get worse in the future.
When you formed the band about 10 years ago, what was it that you wanted to
achieve, and do you think you have managed to do it?
In the beginning I guess we just wanted to play. Now the goal is to move
people, not leaving anyone untouched. I think we've managed that - at least
the people that have seen us live or heard any of our CD's.
