Roby (Blastasfuk) interview
Blastasfuck Records is the only extreme metal label that I know that releases only grindcore music. The label and also distro was started by Roby (The Kill) over a decade ago in Melbourne, Victoria. I spoke to Roby recently and found out more about Blastasfuk, the metal scene in Australia and the upcoming releases from the label.
Hi Roby, you have been running Blastasfuk Records for nearly a decade. How did you decide to start a label?
Roby: Yeah, it’s been a long bloody time. I was trading & selling records before I decided to call the label BLASTASFUK! It all came about from trading THE KILL demo with labels around the world. From there on I went mad!
What was your first release?
Roby: UNDINISM – Live At The Green Room 01.05.04 DVDR & NOISEAR – Red Tape Agenda MCD
When did you decide to release only grindcore music?
Roby: From day 1 mate… I can’t recall exactly what year!
What do you look for in a band before you sign them to your label?
Roby: Good composers who play fast music… Only bands I love!
What have been the most memorable releases so far?
Roby: That’s a very hard question. I think I’ve probably listened to the first HATRED SURGE collection CD more than any other BAF release.
You also play in The Kill. How do you balance being in a band and running a record label?
Roby: In moderation now. We usually jam once a week, but at the moment we’re taking a little break, whilst I’m trying to get this new KILL album out: “KILL THEM ALL…” whilst in the mist of writing new tunes & spending quality time with the family.)
What are bands from Melbourne and Australia that we should check out?
Roby: At the moment, bands like SEWERCIDE, INTERNAL ROT, SPLIT TEETH, MORBID ANAL, BLACK JESUS, PISSBOLT & shit loads more, I just haven’t been out for a little while… Old!
What are the upcoming releases from your label?
Roby: CAPTAIN CLEANOFF – Rising Terror CD GROTESQUE ORGAN DEFILEMENT – Body Horror CD EXCRUCIATING TERROR – Divided We Fall (Re-press) CD & more.
Here are a few releases by Blastasfuk that everyone should check out
