VOIVOD Progresja Club , Warsaw 15th May 2011

Voivod – the C
anadian legend of metal music will appear live in Progresja Club in Warsaw on 15th May. The band has been going along its own path since the very beginning and is the source of inspiration for many bands. Their 13th studio album is going to  be released this year. This will be the first album without their guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour who died six years ago. Yet, all other members of the original line-up will take part in the project. Since the 80s Voivod has put  together thrash, prog, punk and many other genres on their albums making them sound incredible. Apart from characteristic music, the band has always been famous for their political and ecological lyrics dealing with subjects like  corruption in politics and business or degradation of the environment.

It is said that their May tour in Poland will be based on the albums recorded with one of the classic line-up members Jean-Yves „Blacky” Theriault as well as some premiere compositions from the album which will appear later this year. Without any doubt the coming concert will become a memorable event with a big dose of energy confirming the group’s greatness.

Voivod will be accompanied by the veterans of progressive thrash Tenebris and Lublin’s Fanthrash   debuting with a great album „Trauma Despotic” but having its origins in the 80s.

The tickets are available through Eventim network and Progresja Club at 70 zl ( in advance ) and 80 zl ( on the day of the concert )

Demo(N) of the Month in Metal Hammer No 234 12/201


“Trauma Despotic” is an exquisite hors-d’oeuvre, but these three tracks leave one hungry for more, damn hungry. I pondered for a long while whether such a short piece deserves to be the “Demo(N) of the Month.” What finally swayed my mind was the conviction that the full-length record of Fanthrash (once the boys finally do it) shall kill – I have no doubt about it.

Interview with Greg in Blackastrial Magazine No 03

 … it was that moment.

No return is like any other (...) Luckily, „Trauma Despotic” is just THIS disc, and the band behind it, Fantrash, is just THIS band. (...) You have in front of you one of the most extreme – if you can use the word extreme about thrash-metal art, that is – reunions of the year: hailing from Lublin, Fanthrash!

Hi, Greg. I can’t hide it, I’m happy about your return (…)

Reviving the band and returning to normal activity was indeed a logistical, financial and artistic feat accomplished by Fanthrash. (…) mechanism is invariably the same: in order to do something right, professionally, without losing the creative drive, one has to devote himself almost totally to it, while staying in touch with the reality of daily life at the same time. To be a creator and an artist you just need to be it, to want to fulfill your dreams, regardless what you are in your daily life: a construction worker, a lawyer or a teacher.

Let’s talk a little about “Trauma Despotic.” The material sounds great! The basics were laid in a little known Tzar Studio, while the audio mixing and mastering was done by Jocke Skog from Clawfinger himself in Fear and Loathing studio. Is it not the place where the members of Meshuggah reign supreme?

It’s true that Meshuggah are involved with Jocke and Fear and Loathing studio. We are very happy to have managed to engage this kind of professionals and somehow storm into the extremely tight schedule of Jocke.

(…) accepting to work with the Swedes was a kind of experiment and a challenge to see how our thrash muse will sound after being filtered through the talent of Jocke and the professional studio like Fear… 

Undoubtedly, what draws the attention the most at the first sight of “Trauma Despotic” is the magnificent graphic design that you have prepared yourselves from scratch! (…)

It’s true, we did it all ourselves, that is I and Less. We both have artistic education and Less is professionally involved in graphic arts, so it couldn’t be otherwise: only a wholly personal creation could do. (…)

You are currently working on a new material. Tell me, what can we expect from the new collection of Fanthrash? Will it be a musical continuation of “Trauma Despotic” or something totally different?

… we are intensively working on the new material (…) I can only add that the material is recorded again in Tzar Studio with Czarek Socha (…) and the audio mixing and mastering will again be the responsibility of the Fear and Loathing studio in Sweden. (…) musically the new collection will be a continuation of the chosen route, but we also want to broaden the horizons a bit and venture into new musical spaces, not losing the power and the energy already revealed in the “Trauma Despotic.”

... This manner of working on all the aspects of the new collection is very tiring and exhausting but the introductions to the mixes already tell us that it’s worthwhile, and that the new material will blast metal maniacs off the surface of the earth. 

OK. Thanks a lot for your time. But the end won’t be an easy way out. I want you to invite particularly young readers of Blackastrial in a typically marketing way to get to know the music of Fanthrash.

Trust us. Fanthrash has resurrected to prove that true metal exists, that one can play in a modern way while knowing where one comes from musically.

… coming back on stage we want to kick the so-called metal experts in the pants, and prove that on the musical stage there is place for true creativity without looking back too much to the past or imitating those who are promoted by most of the media. We have the head of the ancient phoenix in the logo of our band, and I’m convinced that this is a fitting symbol of our return to the metal scene without any compromise.

… Thrash Till Death.

HMP about Trauma Despotic / No 3 (46) 2010

I would never imagine that Fanthrash is our local band from Lublin. Cool guitar work – somewhat in the death metal style – caught my attention on the very first hearing. Solos in particular give a truly virtuoso performance. A heavy stuff with the frequent changes of the tempo, and most of all, the musicians are technically excellent. I like the guitars playing in sync with double bass drumming – it produces a phenomenal effect.

Excerpt of an interview with Greg in Metal Centre

The band had been a great unknown as far as I was concerned, but its EP “Trauma Despotic” stirred great emotions, which was a reason enough for me to talk to Greg, the founder and leader of Fanthrash group. 

How are you and the whole band getting along after the return to the metal scene with a very successful EP?

“We are extremely pleased that the effort to revive the band, make the recordings and release the disc was so warmly received. It motivates me and other maniacs of the Fanthrash Family to take ever more resolute steps towards full return to the metal scene.”

I was very surprised by the level of professionalism with which “Trauma Despotic” has been prepared.

“We agreed that there would be no half-measures or compromises which might have distorted our artistic message. It was also meant to be a clear sign that Fanthrash did not revive in order to just bang out during a couple of rehearsals.”

A visual element, a video, would be helpful…

“We would love to record a video to the title track from the EP “Trauma Despotic” or to one of the new tracks we are currently working on. We have a clear vision of such a video.”

Greg, thanks for the handful of news about Fanthrash. The last word belongs to you.

“I would like to greet all the people who support our musical activity and thank them for their generous help, and to greet all the new friends who got interested in our music. See you at our concerts. And by the end of the year we want to thrash all the metal maniacs with a new release.”

Blackastrial Magazine about Trauma Despotic / No 0

Do you remember Fanthrash? Of course, you don’t, how could you? But it doesn’t matter, because this “little known” band has just come back in style that any world class “old-timers” should envy. The EP “Trauma Despotic” destroys! It does so with its sound but most of all with the incredible compositional flare and a dose of condensed energy in every note of a merely three-track recording which is done much better than most of the pseudo-professional dreck that too often comes from our studios.

Trauma Despotic in Kurier Szczeciński


Kurier Szczeciński

On Fanthrash record the guitars create a dense wall of sound venturing at times into dazzling, virtuoso level  solos accompanied by intense double bass drumming. The musicians cannot be refused proficiency and skill. Their compositions, as deeply as they are embedded in the conventions of the genre, give an impression of being original and fresh, elaborated in a manner similar to the one used by progressive rock bands.

With clear conscience I can recommend “Trauma Despotic” to all the fans of extreme guitar experiences.

Trauma Despotic on Mroczna Strefa - review


Mroczna Strefa

"First thrash metal band in Lublin that left out with nothing apart from two concert tapes and one demo. Only towards the end of the first decade of the 21st century did they record three tracks that are now distributed in Poland on a pretty digipack. In all the three tracks they join a classical expression of a theme with modern, even aggressive by the thrash standards, means. Although they do not gather too much speed and only the “Aggressor” - true to its name - is a faster tune, for the musicians of a somewhat different era, they are not afraid to condense the sound – the effect being multiple guitar solos and frequent changes within a given piece."

Trauma Despotic on Metal Mundus - review


Recenzja na METAL MUNDUS

"This is a very classical material, dipped in the sauce of the 80s. There is a touch of Metallica; there is a rather German thrash style vocal; and there are the solos, occasionally Metallica-like, sometimes Slayer-like, always superb! If I were to say that this is a substitute for only the best elements of the two mentioned bands, I wouldn’t be far from the truth. It’s modern but without exaggeration. It’s a bit dirty but not too dirty. Simply everything done in the right proportions.

The EP „Trauma Despotic” has intrigued me greatly and I recommend it strongly."

Trauma Despotic on Metal Centre - review


Recenzja na METAL CENTRE

"Returns to the musical scene often arouse expectations higher than the abilities or creativity of a returning band. Here, instead, we deal with a perfect blend of old thrash metal school with modern, rich sound. “Trauma Despotic” is a totally professional product: from the production to the editing and layout – absolutely mouth-watering piece that could make better-known musical groups, not only local, proud of. Gentlemen, with “Trauma Despotic”, you have raised the bar high, damn high, but the goal can be the only one – Thrash Till Death."

March 2010

After many years of waiting, after defeating the weakness of body and spirit, repulsing open and secret attacks of "hostile and malicious force" we have finally managed to release premiere material as Trauma Despotic EP. The release of the new album is at the same time the new beginning for FANTHRASH and the new chapter in the lives of its musicians.

The band starts activities in all media areas i.e. a website, myspace etc. We follow the idea of total effect on the receiver through music, texts and visual arts. We have the mission to complete and we trust our artistic ways. We have our vision and our message coming out of the music we create and the lyrics we write. They are of great importance for us and we encourage you to read them. Greg and Less with active support of Mary are the authors of the whole visual concept of Fanthrash in the form of the album cover and the inlay card, the band's website, MySpace site, the Encyclopaedia Metallum, the T-shirt project, pins, etc.

There is the path and the force in us to go this way the whole distance, there is the power and the persistence, the dream and the aim. The longing...

I'd like to disintegrate into atoms
And integrate again
I'd like to turn back time
Change the thoughts and the words
The Angel of Sadness in haste moulded me out of "unreason"
But forgot that you cannot cry over an open skull

ATOMS (Greg)
