Maiikro Bruto

You just got to love Japanese guys doing synth demos. I have no idea what he is talking about but this guy is awesome! By the way, an Arturia micro brute is definitely going inside my studio. It looks really handy, affordable and it sounds like there are industrial sounds inside waiting to get out! 🙂

There has been too many spam storms on our site lately so we decided to integrate the blog with Facebook. This means that you must have a valid Facebook account to comment our blog posts. We do not really like the idea of integrating to much with Facebook but it was the best solution for now. After all we would like to concentrate on Interdictor and not on rejecting comments about cheap sneakers and viagra.

This also means that when you comment a blogpost on Interdictors facebook page it will show up in the blog comments on www.interdictor.se as well. Some old comments might display on the blog and if someone doesn´t like that their comments are displayed outside of Facebook please tell us and we will delete them. Freedom of speech is as important for us as the freedom not to speak.

There could possibly be some disturbance on our site for a while as we test out the new comment mechanism and trim the layout. So please forgive us for any inconvenience that might give you! 😉

I recently had the pleasure of visiting a former mental hospital which was also used as a sanatorium for patients suffering from tuberculosis. These two areas of medical care have more in common than one would first expect due to the nature of the frequent tuberculosis outbreaks in the beginning of the 19th century. Quite often, the survivors who escaped the illness and the probable slow death often ended up being the last survivor of their families. Due to this, the suicide rates were very high in medical facilities caring for the survivors.

According to the prevailing method of treating tuberculosis at that time, the sanatoriums were often located in remote areas with fresh and dry air, often surrounded by forests. From a modern medical viewpoint, the main advantages of these installations were most likely the improved sanitary conditions rather than mountain air, compared to the surrounding villages and the inadequate hygiene that was common at that time.

Alt Fest 2014

Henrik told me about this back in april or something like that. We both thought it was this year and realised that we were probably unable to go. But since it´s august 2014 and not 2013 this looks like a chance to see some really good Industrial/EBM bands live, and for that matter some good metal bands as well.

I do miss some of my personal favourites but who knows what they will add to their line up until next autumn and hey: Leather Strip, Front 242, Covenant, Clan of xymox, VNV Nation, Suicide Commando and so on, they are all pretty decent… could be worth watching. 😉 And most important of all, this will probably be a place where you can meet likeminded and interesting people to chat and drink with, that´s something else than your local nightclub. 😉

In the Interdictor camp we really like when people try walking new ways and explore uncharted territory. Crowdfunding a festival is a nice attempt of doing something else than sitting home and flooding twitter about how bad the music business has become. In the Interdictor camp we are seriously considering to visit Alt Fest 2014.

Is anyone else going?
