CDC Asia Tour - 15th September 2012 @ Annexe Gallery



Gig : CDC Asia Tour, September 2012
Date : 15th September 2012
Time : ...
Venue : Annexe Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Bands : CDC
Price : ...



CDC emerged in September 2003 from the silent suburban streets of 3 little towns by the names of Lansdale, Doylestown, and Perkasie. Having started as an "in-studio" project the original members decided to take the band to higher places. With a newly recorded demo and an instant "buzz" about them, CDC began playing shows all over the east coast.

In 2004, CDC set up and recorded 4 tracks for a split release, but problems occurred. Those four songs were then teamed up with 2 unreleased tracks and a demo track, and finally released in 2006 on Ghosttown Records as an ep titled "The Split". The 4 tracks also appear on a split with BY MY HANDS(Glasgow Scotland) entitled Kontinental Kings, released on Zone 6 Records. In 2008 Ghosttown Records re-released "The Split" as "DEFY THE ODDS". The re-release has been remixed, remastered, added new vocals, as well as a new layout.

With the coming of 2009 came a lot of big things from CDC. The released the long await 5 song ep "BURN" on Filled With Hate records, as well as some extensive and wild touring. CDC hit the likes of US, Mexico, Europe, South Africa, and now Israel can be added to the list. Keep your eyes peeled, cause with a fresh release under their belts, they will probably be playing somewhere close to you as they show no plans on stopping their world domination.

Interview - Incarnation




One of the reasons that we've chosen Incarnation as our band to be interviewed is their relentless pursuit of their passion. It's not uncommon that bands do break up after a good 2-3 years of playing music together. Incarnation defied all odds in maintaining a good progression for a local metal band ... from difficult jamming session schedules to line-up changes to playing international shows.


Below is the interview we had with them (online) which touches on their music making to their best gig performances.

Interview Questions

Post A Gig : Introduce yourselves. So who plays what instrument?
                        Yadd on vocals, me (Najmi) on 1st guitar, Udey on 2nd guitar, Areef on
bass and Arab on drums.

Post A Gig : What kind of music do you describe Incarnation? Who are your influences?
                        We play metal music with a hint of trash and hardcore. Our influences are like Soilwork, Dimension Zero, Children of Bodom, Pantera, Unearth, As I Lay Dying and a lot more.

Post A Gig : When did you form your band? How long have you all known each other? How did you meet? What inspired you to make music together?
                        Incarnation  was formed in 2005. Basically we hangout a lot at rehearsal studios, jamming metal tunes and stuff even though we’re in different bands back then, that’s how we knew each other. We just wanted to play our own metal music that we feel it’s cool.

Post A Gig : As a band, how often does Incarnation practice?  What are your jamming sessions generally like?
                        It’s really hard for us to practice as Yadd and Udey are based in Kedah while Areef and Arab are based in Negeri Sembilan. Only me (Najmi) lives in KL. So we practice at home and will jam one time before we play a show.

Post A Gig : Who write the songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
                        Azim (ex drummer) laid down most of the tunes and I filled in where it’s necessary on our 1st album, The Stainless Perfect Murder. He even wrote some of the songs for our 2nd album (coming out soon) before he left the band. Yadd wrote all the lyrics. He likes to talk about life experiences, mostly.

Post A Gig : Could you briefly describe the music-making process? Do you start with a guitar riff or other ways? Are the songs done at home or the studio?
                        It’s really simple. We always start with a riff and take it from there. Go with the flow, y’know? I have a simple recording setup where we can record pre-production with a decent sound so that we can arrange the song nicely.



Post A Gig : How has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?
                        I supposed we are getting heavier and more melodic than the last record.

Post A Gig : What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how? Did you get any objections from your family or friends? At any one point, any member thought of quitting?
                        Our biggest challenge is communication as each band members live far from each other. Luckily we have the internet so we could communicate and update each other better. Family and friends have been very supportive so far. Talk about quitting the band, well, actually we already had a few lineup changes due to lack of commitment and creativity differences. But we had to move forward because we put too much effort in the band and it’s a shame to quit now.

Post A Gig : What do you think of the perception or feedback from the music fans in Malaysia in regards to your music?
                        So far, they’ve been nothing but great. Thanks guys!!

Post A Gig :  What do you think of our local radio stations? Have you tried submitting your songs to the local stations? Any response?
                        I don’t think we have submitted anything to radio stations cos’ they’re not gonna play metal music anyway except for XFM that has gone kaput. Too heavy for our pakciks and makciks, I guess. I’d rather play a lot of shows.

Post A Gig : What's your ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune? Or both? How do you plan to achieve that?
                        Well, logically, with fame comes fortune. With fortune comes a lot of tours which means we can go out of Malaysia and play more shows. To achieve it is by promoting our music endlessly to new people every single day.

Post A Gig :  Do you have a band manager? How do you manage your band’s activities? Any plans to bring your music further in the market?
                        No, we manage the band ourselves. Every member has their own roles. For example, I handle most of the production sides while Udey handle merchandise and stuff.

Post A Gig :  Did you try to get your materials promoted overseas? Is it well received?
Yes, and that’s why we get to play a number of shows in Indonesia  including Macbeth x Crooz Tour in 2009 and the response was beyond our expectations thanks to our Crooz family. We are also well received in the Philippines.

Post A Gig : Do you have any materials out yet? Album? If no, are there plans to get it done? If yes, where can your fans get it? Any merchandise?
                        Yes, we released our 1st album, The Stainless Perfect Murder in 2008. You can stream the whole album on our Youtube channel since it’s already sold out. Currently we’re recording our 2nd album coming out hopefully this year or the next. Hahaha.

Post A Gig : What do you think of the local music scene? Active/inactive? What do you think can be improved?
                        It is the most active scene compared to other mainstream scene. The one thing can improve the scene is participation from media people be it TV or radio.

Post A Gig :  What is your day job? Can a local band make a living out of playing music?
                        I’m an executive at a top secret agency (like CIA, FBI and stuff) while the Udey is a teacher, Areef is still in school, Arab work with RISDA and Yadd is with Intel.

Post A Gig : Who are your top 5 favourite local bands?
Plague of Happiness, Symbiotic in Theory, Cassandra, Creamson and The Eightyfour

Post A Gig : Which are your top 3 gigs that you’ve played? Any reasons behind that?
                        Parkway Drive live in KL 2009, Macbeth x Crooz Tour 2009 and I think recently Northern Music Fest 2012. The reason is because we headbang a lot with the crowd until we got a major bang-over (a hangover from too much headbanging)

Post A Gig : What can you tell me about your instruments? Why the brand and model? Any dream instruments that you want?
                        Udey plays an ESP Eclipse, Areef HAMER bass, Arab plays TAMA drums with Axis pedals and a number cymbals and I play an LTD H-1000. Why we bought them is merely because they’re good. Dream intruments? Too much to list down here, man. It’s endless!!

Post A Gig : Any plans for Incarnation to have songs in the Malay language? Why?
                        Hell no. It’ll be too weird.

Post A Gig : Any advice for your fans who wants to form a band in Malaysia?
                        Do it for the passion. Do not stop practice, play shows (even if it’s                                        a small gig) and promote your band.

Post A Gig : Anyone you would like to thank for supporting you in your musical journey?
                        We would like to thank our families, Studioq crew for supporting us in our early days, Crooz Cloth Indonesia, friends and bands alike. It has been a wonderful journey and there is more to come. Stay tuned!

 Post A Gig : How can the fans contact you? FB? Email? Website?
                   
                      We actively communicate with fans thru our Facebook (facebook.com/incarnationcrew) and Twitter (twitter.com/incarnationcrew).
                      
                      You can watch our live and goofy videos at our Youtube channel too (youtube.com/user/incarnationcrew)

Music & Life : Passion As Fuel Part 1

Passion as Fuel How many of you know how to play a musical instrument? And how many of you are still playing? Let me make an assumption. I would say only a handful of 10% of you still play the musical instrument after you've started working and got a family. At least 90% of my friends are in that statistics.

The funny thing is most of them still have a little piece of their dream/passion stucked somewhere between their heart and brains. On one side, there's still the 'concept' of becoming a rockstar and make a living out of doing something they loved. On the other spectrum, there's the 'been there, done that, can't make enough money' group which has a more realistic view in life.

I'm not saying that you can't make a living through music, but its more of what the musicians went through and saw. Imagine that Mr A spends 80% of his time practising and jamming during his teenage years (being a teenager, you don't worry about buying a car or going for fancy dinners), spend 80% of his pocket money on jam studio fees, equipments, accessories, gigs, band merchandise and lets say he spent 5 years doing so. At the same time, his friend, Mr B, got a job, some got promoted within that time frame and Mr A is still playing music at payless gigs, without a line of merchandise to sell and trying to write and sell music for the local market.

Now, in movies and the rockstar dream, usually the musician will hit his big break and make millions and doing awesome tours around the world. How many of us actually make it? Especially in Malaysia. Of course we have celebrities like Amy Search, Hillary Ang, Datin Siti, Awie , Sudirman ,Ajai, M. Nasir and so on, but try taking that and versus the number of rockstar wannabes.....

It's demotivating when we put things into perspective, but it's the truth and everyone knows it including the musicians. There will be a point where majority of the grown up musicians will submit to the ugly truth and move on with their lifes. When this happens, it's like having your dreams shattered by an unseen force. The dissapointment will be doubled because there's no one to blame except yourselves.

Though the dream seems far fetched, having a dream is never a bad thing. And for us, we have a number of role models to look up to for inspiration and it gives us hope that it's achievable.

The most important ingredient to be a musician is passion because passion don't need food or money to survive, just someone who believes in it and passion will be the fuel needed to reach the stars.... with a little luck and a lot of talent.

Don't stop believing in your dreams and make sure passion is your best friend in this journey...
