Interview mit The New Recruits

 

Who had the idea for THE NEW RECRUITS?

THE PEOPLE HAD THE IDEA! THE MINISTRY DEMANDED IT! AND THE NEW RECRUITS HEARD THE CALL TO ACTION! WE ARE A MUSICAL COMBAT UNIT DEDICATED TO FREEDOM FROM THE MINDLESS ANTI-CHOICES THAT HAVE BEEN PROVIDED TO THE MASSES FOR THEIR MINDLESS CONSUMPTION!

Where did you meet the other band members?

WE HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR SOME TIME THROUGH OTHER ACTIVITIES, PLUS OUR UNITED COMMITMENT TO THE MINISTRY OF DARK GOSPEL AND SELF-DEFENSE. ROCK N ROLL IS OUR MEDIUM FOR DISPENSING THE TRUTHS OF THE MINISTRY.

One of your four commitments is “We will NOT try to win any popularity contests”. What’s the goal you want to achieve with THE NEW RECRUITS?

OUR ONE AND ONLY GOAL IS TO SPREAD THE NON-DOGMATIC AND FREEING INSPIRATION THAT IS THE MINISTRY OF THE DARK GOSPEL. WE HAVE DEDICATED THIS PROJECT AND THIS STANDING BROTHERHOOD TO SUPPORT, DISTRIBUTE AND LIVE THE MINISTRY'S AGENDA. WE COME TOGETHER AS VERY DIFFERENT SPIRITUAL SOULS AND CONNECT THROUGH SOUND VIBRATION AND THE MINISTRY'S TEACHINGS. WE EXPERIENCE A NON-DOGMATIC, AND VERY REAL CONNECTION AMONGST OURSELVES THROUGH, AND WITH THIS VERY SPECIAL BAND SPREADING A VERY SPECIAL TRUTH. WE FEEL WE CAN PROVIDE THE MOVEMENT WITH A SOUNDTRACK AND WOULD NEVER (I REPEAT: NEVER!!!) REDUCE OUR INNERMOST GOAL (SPREADING THE MINISTRY'S TEACHINGS) TO SILLY POPULARITY CONTESTS OR MUSICAL RACES FOR AN END THAT WILL NEVER BE REACHED THROUGH MERE AMBITION. A LOT OF THE SO CALLED PUNK, HARDCORE, ROCK, AND INDEPENDENT MUSIC OUT THERE LACKS SOUL, BUT IS OVERLOADED WITH PETTY AMBITION. WE DEFY AMBITION TO GAIN ANYTHING OTHER THAN A REAL EXPERIENCE THROUGH SOUND. SURE, WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE, PUT OUT RECORDS, AND PLAY CELEBRATIONS, BUT ALL OF THIS IS TO SPREAD THE WORD AND LIVE FREELY IN THE GOSPEL WE CREATE WE WILL NEVER REDUCE OURSELVES AND OUR MISSION FOR FLEETING "SUCCESS" OR POPULARITY, THAT REACH BEYOND GIVING PRAISE TO THE FREEDOM THE MINSITRY'S TEACHINGS HAVE GIVEN US. WE HAVE COME TO EXPERIENCE LIFE THROUGH SOUND AND ANSWER OUR ETERNAL QUESTIONS THROUGH CONNECTION, NOT AMBITION. WE ARE THE TRUE TASK FORCE IN SOUND.

The band members hometowns are Munich and Wilmington. How does it work to be a band across this distance?

THE MAGICK OF THE MINISTRY PROPELS US FORWARD! THE NEW RECRUITS ARE WITHOUT BOUNDARY MARKERS, MUCH IN LINE WITH THE MINISTRIES TEACHINGS.

In an interview last year you said “THE NEW RECRUITS is more a fun thing”. Do you still call it a fun thing or is it getting more serious?

WE SEE NO DIFFERENCE. FUN, WORK, ART.WE ARE ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND NONE OF THEM AT ONCE. WE CREATE WHAT AND HOW WE WANT! WE TAKE GREAT JOY AND PRIDE IN OUR ART, AND OUR VISION OF BLOOD, SWEAT, DARK GOSPEL, ROCK N ROLL, AND ENERGY! WE ARE AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE OF PURE DEFIANCE.

Isn’t one band time consuming enough?

WE ARE NEVER TOO BUSY FOR ART AND JOY! NEVER CONFINE YOURSELF...ALWAYS EXPAND AND REDEFINE!!!

If you meet someone with a “THE CASTING OUT”-tattoo would you suggest that person has to change the tattoo in “THE NEW RECRUITS” because you go on with THE NEW RECRUITS where you stopped with THE CASTING OUT?

WE ARE NOT HERE TO TELL ANYONE WHAT THEY MUST OR MUST NOT DO! FREEDOM OF CHOICE AND PERSONAL WILL IS PARAMOUNT TO OUR MISSION! BELIEVE IN THE IMPOSSIBLE, AND NEVER GIVE UP YOUR INDIVIDUALITY! LOVE WHAT YOU WANT ON YOUR OWN TERMS!

What would you tell to a person who compares THE NEW RECRUITS with BOYSETSFIRE or THE CASTING OUT?

HOW DO YOU COMPARE ART..EXCEPT FOR WHETHER YOU CAN OR CAN NOT APPRECIATE WHAT THE ARTIST IS CONVEYING? TRUTH IN ART IS RELATIVE..SOME WILL SEE TRUTH WHERE OTHERS SEE ONLY LIES, AND VICE- VERSA. THIS IS THE PERSONAL CHOICE THAT EVERYONE MUST TAKE FOR THEMSELVES, OR BECOME MINDLESS PIGS THAT WILL EAT WHATEVER IS FED TO THEM.

Are there differences in the songwriting process in comparison to your other bands?

THAT WOULD BE OUR ASSUMPTION.

Which feeling is the best for writing songs?

ANY AND ALL..DARKNESS,DESTRUCTION AND HATE CAN BECOME POWERFUL TOOLS OF REBUILDING THROUGH SONG...YET SO CAN LOVE, SEX, BEAUTY, AND LIGHT. WE HARNESS ALL FEELINGS, ALL EMOTIONS, AND ALL THOUGHTS TO CREATE. WE CHOOSE TO TAKE THE HIDDEN PATH, TO NOT FOLLOW A SET WAY OF MASOCHISTIC PLACATION TO THE MASSES, SO OUR IDEAS AND IDEOLOGY RUN THE GAMUT OF OUR OWN DESIGN!

Is there a subject you would never write about?

NEVER!!!!

If the whole world would listen, what would you say?

WE ARE ALL READY SAYING IT! NOW WE JUST NEED THE WORLD TO LISTEN

One sentence to every word:

blood. IS WHAT PUMPS THROUGH OUR VEINS,AND ONTO OUR ART... THE BEGINNING AND END OF PROGRESSION!

gospel. IS OUR DARK IDENTITY CONSTANTLY REDEFINING A GENRE THAT IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF NEW BLOOD!

sound. IS OUR DELIVERANCE, OUR SALVATION, OUR WEAPON!

uniforms. STAND FOR A SHARED EXPERIENCE. GOOD BAD OR UGLY WE COMMIT TO OUR MISSION TO THE BROTHERHOOD AND THE MINISTRY

sweat. IS OUR PROOF, MIXING WITH OUR BLOOD TO CREATE OUR DARK ARTSCAPE!

sex. IN ITS PURE AND ETERNAL FORM IS SHARING EVERYTHING BEYOND THE SCOPE OF MADE UP PLANS AND BULLSHIT AGENDAS..PURE EXPERIENCE, PURE MEDITATION OF LIFE & LUST...PURE SOUL...PURE GOSPEL...

leaders. ALWAYS!!

self defense. IS THE PATH WE FOLLOW IN ORDER TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR HEARTS AND SOULS FROM EXTERNAL NEGATIVITY...MEDIA POLLUTION...FORCED OPINIONS...CAPITALIST STRUGGLE...SHEEP BEHAVIOUR...MIDDLE OF THE ROAD NONSENSE......SELF DEFENSE IS A WEAPON POINTED AT THE HEAD OF FORCE FED MASS CONSUMPTION...WE WILL PROTECT OUR INNER AND OUTER EXPERIENCE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

unity. IS WITHIN AND AROUND OUR COMMUNITY WHICH IS THE MINISTRY'S COMMUNITY...BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT...ALWAYS.

alliance. IS WITHIN AND AROUND OUR COMMUNITY WHICH IS THE MINISTRY'S COMMUNITY...BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT...ALWAYS.

überhaupt kein Bock irgendwas zu lesen bei der Großschreiberei...ätzend. Und übersetzen? zu viel Arbeit?

von wrp 06.04.2011 10:08

Übersetzt wird hier ja oft nicht,w as ich allerdings sehr gut finde. Da ist die Gefahr viel zu groß, irgendetwas falsch zu übersetzen oder den Sinn zu verdrehen. Und wer nicht richtig englisch kann. sollte auch keine englischsprachige Musik hören. Die Großschreibung ist in der tat aber schlecht lesbar. Wahrscheinlich hat er per Mail so geantwortet und es wurde nur kopiert. Aber die Mühe hätte man sich nochmal machen können. Andererseits gehört das ja irgendwie auch zur Aussage selbst und eine Veränderung würde diese verfälschen ;)

@wrp: mal davon abgesehen, das eine übersetzung des sinn verfälschen würde, kostet sie einfach auch viel zu viel zeit.
