Antagonist A.D. - Antagonist A.D Newsletter Interview

05 Oct 2008 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Sam for answering these questions:

What is the best gig/event you have ever performed at, and why?

Umm it's really hard to say, one of my favourites will always be in Adelaide at this place called The Underground with our friends The Red Shore. Didn't expect any type of reaction and kids went crazy, it was so much fun. & I'll always have fond memories of Upsett Records shows in 2006 as well.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Whammy Bar on K'rd or this new place we played this last weekend called The Fish House. It's in Palmy, it's actually some kids garage, thats been soundproofed and spray painted. SUCH a good atmosphere.

What can we expect to see from Antagonist A.D over the next year?

Well our new CD is out next week, and from there hopefully us playing a lot of shows, around New Zealand & hopefully other countries too.

What other NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Gin Wigmore is pretty cute, I'd like to see her, (that came out kinda of dodgy right? I just mean I'd like to meet her... possibly try to impress her, & take her to chocolate boutique in Parnell... maybe walk along the beach...)

If you could, what rumour would you start about yourselves?

That we are werewolves.. or at least that I am a werewolf.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Be passionate about everything you do & work hard.
 

About Antagonist A.D.

Taking a different approach Antagonist A.D.’s music and message could be described as 'Modern hardcore with old school ethics'. It's raw metal core at its purest and sincerest. Not watered down or compromised in any way. Antagonist A.D. delivers the frantic intensity of hardcore, while utilising a heavier edge.

Lyrically the band speaks of the cancerous nature of western culture, the infectiousness of apathy, its symptoms & consequence, the exploitation of animals across the world, for pleasure, science, fashion or food. With topics ranging from social & political commentary to the brutally honest self-retrospect and analysis. Simply Antagonist A.D.'s words are full of venom, conviction & passion.

Antagonist A.D. has not only toured New Zealand consistently but also Australia, South East Asia including Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines and Japan touring with locals and internationals to name a few. Most Precious Blood (USA), Have Heart (USA), Parkway Drive and Carpathian (AUS).
