Could you provide us some basic info about your band?
The Bombs Of Enduring Freedom was born out of
frustration at the downward spiral of global events in
2007 AD. Although not just the work of James Fogarty (formerly
of Ewigkeit), he is the only member so far to confirm
nvolvement and is the groups cheif strategist. He also
runs DEATH TO MUSIC productions with the help of the "DTM
Forward Attack Sqaudron".
Why did you exactly pick this track to appear on the
Unlike most of our tracks, there's not a lot of lyrics
to it, and it gets to the point straight away. It deals
with the "reality" that the american military machine
inhabits ; The killing of innocents in the cause of
freedom, the destruction of freedom in the cause of
liberty, the international illigality of liberty in the
cause of the project for the new american century and
it's manufactured blindfold in the shape of the war of
attrition of the 21st century.
How important is and has the internet been for your
Without the internet, we wouldnt be able to sell any of
our limited-edition debut CD albums. Without the
internet, we wouldnt have our "anti" record label.
Without the internet, we wouldnt have most of the
samples we use. Without the internet, we wouldnt be able
to propogate our audio terror tactics. Without the
internet, we woudlnt exist as a project!
What are the views upon the local music industry in
your native country?
The industry surrounding musicians is a parasite. It has
sought to dictate the direction that musicians take, the
things they say and the clothes they wear. In specific,
the 'metal' industry is run by an elitist bunch of old
men who believe that you must kiss arse and work for
nothing. Bands that do 'well' are those whose teenage
dreams and need to fulfill their egos survive the test
of working for record labels for nothing and getting
ripped off at every turn. The only way 'metal' musicians
can make enough to survive, is to tour 9 months of the
year in a transit van surviving on Pot Noodles.
And what about the rest of the world?
Every music scene in every country follows the
description above. Rarley though are artists treated as
badly as 'metal' artists are.
How do you see the role of the record labels in the
music industry in about 10 years?
There hoepfully wont be any large record labels left.
CD's may still exist, but it will mostly be digital.
What are your opinions on the Industrialized Metal
I love Industrialized Metal zine. Gerardo - you are a
god amongst men, and we are not worthy to eat your shit.
Do you have some final words to add?
Support The Bombs Of Enduring Freedom! Support Death To
Music productions! Fuck The Industry - we dont need it!
