"Centrate stands for straight Thrash Metal. Our lyrics are varied and reaching from socially critical, war themes and some not so serious meaning lyrics. "

1. You has been hacking and thrashing for over 8 years now (Since Without Fear times). When you started to play music, did you envision you would still be doing it today? 

Hello! Our calendar started 2010 as we found together as Centrate. Everything before was training and finding our sound. Everyone of us started to learn our instruments since school days. Some day Manu started to search for some other stupid boys to start a Metalband. Soon he found Niki, Dippel, Chris and Tobi. 

2. What are the important components of Centrate’ music and lyrics?

Centrate stands for straight Thrash Metal. Our lyrics are varied and reaching from socially critical, war themes and some not so serious meaning lyrics. 

3. You have just one release published. What kind of ambitions did you have after finishing the recording of this 4-track EP? 

The release of our EP " Tiger Force " brought us the ball rolling with what we had admittedly not counted . Our Songs got international airtime in radioshows, the EP got a lot of very cool reviews we got new shows offers. This gave us a decent kick and the lust for Thrash Metal is bigger than ever. 

4. You play thrash in a classic way. How much thought has gone into finding the right kind of sound and how much has been pure gut feeling?

It´s a lot of pure feeling, when we are writing new Songs. But we always try to put our own mark into our sound. We like to sound like a thrash band, but in our own way. More dark and evil, hahaha.

5. Centrate is a band that plays live very often, and now you have just started a short 10 days tour. Talk about that experience. Any other upcoming shows? 

The Tour was a great adventure. 11 Shows in 6 different Country's…which underground band isn´t dreaming for something like this?! The tourlife is hard work, but also a lot of fun. You have to be very disciplined and can not make party every night, because you have to travel many kilometers to the next show and have to be fit. Maybe you can make more party when you have your own driver… But it makes appetite for more wink emoticon This year we actually fixed some little Underground Festival-Gigs like the Ground Force Festival or the M.I.S.E. Open Air where we are going to play with bands like Dust Bolt or Evil Invaders. We are also going to play a little Tour between Germany which lead us in City's like Hamburg and Berlin and we are ready for a lot of more shows. 

6. Give me 5 bands you would love to open up for, live, and why?

Puh...there are a lot of Bands we like to play with...but if we have to chose 5 than Havok, Slayer, Exodus, Angelus Apatrida and Onslaught.

7. How much of a DIY scene is there still left around the world that can support you if you want to tour or release an album on your own?

For an underground Band like us without a label it´s hard work to reach more thrasher, get more and bigger shows and so on…It´s very necessary to build up an network with other Bands and supporters. Social Media like Facebook make this much easier. But you have to spend a lot of time. We are very happy to work together with the guys of undergrounded.de. They support underground bands. Help us to find new concerts, promote us and filming concerts. Check them out!!! 

8. Internet brought an overpopulation of extreme metal bands and recordings. Did this affect the quality of the scene?

I don´t think so. A lot of these new bands are playing on a very high level…for example Dust Bolt or Lost Society. These guys are completely insane! But if you want to be sure that the bands are really good, you have to check them live. Some bands sounds on CD amazing…and live they totally sucks.

9. What’s your opinion about underground and thrash metal, underground or not, these days? In which aspects the scene got better and in which aspects did it get worse?

Thrash Metal is pure underground. There are only a few Thrash bands which are more than an underground band. Only the big 5…but in my opinion the big 4 are only 3 Thrash Bands…one of these Bands is more a normal Rock Band since 1988… In my opinion, it´s getting harder for underground Bands to play live for a bigger audience. Many Metalheads spend their money for big concerts and don´t support the little underground bands in small venues. So move up your asses and support your local Metalscene!

10. Germany is considered the elite, in Europe, in the thrash scene as well as having some of the most representative bands on Earth. How is it living there and what was it like growing up for you in Germany?

For us it´s not very special to grown up in Germany. We are happy about our great Metal scene, but we also like the metal sound of south and North America for example.

11. Alright, we’ve come to an end. Do you have any final thoughts? Thank you for your time…

We have to say thank you and we hope that some of your readers will check our sound and give us a feedback. Thrash!
