piFesth fünf (release party)


Interdictor was born out of the demoscene and a group of people with kind of similar taste in music, movies and culture in general. We used to visit hacker events around northern Europe and compete with our music, graphics and code. But as we grew older, started working and building families all of us left the scene. We continued our friendship via a mailing list which has been active for more than 15 years now. Now and then some of us got together for a party or a concert.


One of the best things I know is drinking beer and listening to the music I love. The problem is that every time I go to a party I am in minority. Most people show no respect for alternative music so your lucky if you are able to hear 15 seconds of Skinny Puppy before they change song. And then you have to listen to Lady Gaga for 5 hours. So one day I had an idea for the perfect party. Let´s get together just the good old friends with common taste in music, drink beer for a whole day and play our music, loud without interuptions.


piFesth was born. Every summer we get together at my place for many good beers in the sun, barbecue, puffin a few cigars and loud music coming from my beloved piP (therefore the name piFetsh) loudspeakers and Profundus bass modules. We usually put together a playlist for Spotify a few weeks before the party starts to avoid the usual party-spotify-dj. You know the one who interrupts every song and switches music every 15 seconds.


We try to avoid activities in general and concentrate on the music and beer. But once we tried to record a song.  It did not turn out well. When Henrik arrived we were already about 15 beers into the party. Once we had a blind test of Russian vodka. Shooting with a potato cannon was also an interesting experience. Analog synth experimentation is also allowed and of course electric guitar at 03:00.


This year holds the fifth version of this event, of course called piFesth fünf. A few years back when Interdictor was born we started to play our forthcoming material at these parties. A great oportunity to get relevant opinions. This year we have just released our new material. So tomorrow is a combined piFesth and Interdictor release party.


We will all be happy celebrating that we finally got Spectrograph out of the door. And when the party is over and we wake up again we are ready to start working on new material. That will probably take a day or two… 😉 So if there are strange pictures or comment coming out of our Twitter tomorrow, it´s just the live stream from Interdictors releaseparty that has started!!!

Good or evil, happy or sad, right or wrong. Humanity has reached a state where we view the world around us in yesterdays monochrome vision. There is no time to think, no need to evaluate possibilities somwhere in between the extremes.

The saying is that there are always two sides of the coin. But that is just a matter of perspective. Close enough there are thousand upon thousand facets of the coin. Your mind is a spectrograph. Given some perspective it can separate the wavelenghts. You ARE able to see the full spectrum, not just black and white.

Live industrial music


I am traveling by train to Gothenburg while writing this. I just realized that it was almost 4 years since I last visited a true industrial live show. 4 years??? It´s actually the same band (FLA) playing this time as it was back in 2010. Is this the state our scene has come to? Just a few big bands that can afford to play live all over the world. Or am I just picky when it comes to what I choose to listen to?

Well I don´t know but tonight is going to be great, Interdictor will get together and discuss our upcoming release, drink some beer and end the night watching one of the best industrial acts ever. They managed to survive and evolve all these years, that´s almost as amazing as the music itself.

If anyone is up for a beer together with Interdictor we will announce our presence via Twitter and Facebook.

See ya!

Digital Recovery 10.1

On the national day of Sweden a digital compilation called Digital Recovery 10.1 will be released.
Interdictor appears together with bands like Leather Strip, Chrysalide and ∆AIMON. Cover art by Sērga_Art : Sculpture by J. Griego Artworks. Mastered by Anatoly Tokee Grinberg

Digital Recovery

The concept of this series (10.1 – 10.5) was to give back to the organizer and creator of the Digital Recovery series Chris Shortt. Chris was diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolism/Blood Clots in his lungs and leg. He wasn’t able to work and bills were piling up. Pal Dragan (Black Sheep Screaming) and Daniel Neet (The Clay People) came up with the idea to create a Digital Recovery release dedicated to helping Chris Shortt & his family.

The only thing we want in return is to be attributed as the creators of the original content. You’ll find more information about the CC BY license here.

So why don’t we default to the good old “Copyright” spell and spend our efforts on finalising our upcoming release rather than bothering with licensing formalities?

The word “copyright” is a legal concept of information control and has roots stretching as far back as to the 15th century, where books almost exclusively were produced in monasteries. Besides keeping the prices well out of reach for most people, the catholic church could and did control which information that went into print.

When Gutenberg invented the printing press in year 1451, the Catholic church raged against the new technology and the liberation of information it represented. Heavy lobbying activities were directed toward European rulers. In France, a law was enacted, strongly prohibiting the use of printing presses and any violators would be executed. However, the law was circumvented by a large number of print shops just outside the French borders and illegal imports of printed matter.

Eventually, the use of the printing press spread and with it, knowledge and ideas. Furthermore, criticism against the ruling church spread through Europe which ignited the process that lead to the protestant reformation.

The phrase “copyright” was created in the mid 16th century in London where queen Mary I committed herself to reverting England to catholicism. Her eagerness to persecute protestants rewarded her with the nickname “Bloody Mary”. She shared the fear of the printing press with the Catholic church but she was also aware of the failed attempts to ban it, despite threats of severe punishments.

Instead, she worked out an agreement covering the London printers guild. They were only to print approved matter and in return they would be granted monopoly. They would be granted copyright.

The agreement proved to very profitable for both parties which made it a success. However, Mary I died just one year later and was succeeded by her sister who didn’t share her sisters catholic plans for England which remained a protestant country. However, the copyright lived on.


Fast forward to the 21st century:

The internet has changed the way we interact socially, spread ideas and share culture. The history repeats itself and when browsing through the history of the copyright concept, it is obvious that the peoples need to share and retrieve information will make them risk punishment if necessary, even if they might have to face the hardest possible punishment within the law.

As the major media producing corporations are watching their revenues decay, they are getting desperate. More and more aggressive countermeasures are being deployed. While the driving force behind the lobbyism of the media corporations is clearly commercial, this interest quite often coincides with state governments desire for control.

Today, the battle is not about file sharing, nor about what is illegal or not within the scope of electronically transmitted media. The battle and the consequences of its outcome is now about the foundational principles of the internet and what it will become in the future.


Will it be a non-governed, non-commercial global communication platform which ultimately could redefine the concept “democracy”?

Or a delivery and marketing platform, moderated by governments and fueled by corporations where your rights are proportional to the amount of money you are able to spend?


That is why you´ll never find a copyright label on anything Interdictor.
