大家熟知的激流金属乐队 - 爆浆 (EXPLOSICUM) 经过3年的准备,即将发行全新专辑《立文的交易》(Living's Deal)。

After 3 years of preparation, our well-known thrash metal band爆浆 (EXPLOSICUM) will release a new full length album《立文的交易》(Living's Deal).


在风格上,新专辑延续之前主人公“立文”的概念,依然是快速爆裂的激流金属;技术与录音制作上都有新的突破。新专辑绝不妥协,绝不软化!展现出乐队前所未有的速度与力度!这张专辑包括9首全新曲目。封面依然是我们的老朋友,金属圈著名画师 Uncle 3(王家彬)绘制。

This new album continues the concept of leading role “Living”, the music style is still fast and blast thrash metal. There is new breakthrough in technique, recording and production. New album has NO compromise, NO soft side! It shows the speed and strength that EXPLOSICUM has never before! It includes 9 tracks. The cover art is still by our old friend, metalhead Uncle 3, famous cover artist in Chinese metal scene.


新专辑发行之前,我们对乐队进行了一次深入访谈,带您全方位了解一下乐队的近况,以及与新专辑相关的种种。

Before the release of new album, we conducted an interview with EXPLOSICUM to know their recent status and to discuss their new release.


第一个问题,立文到底指谁?之前有说是爆浆乐队的调音师,也有人说是之前的鼓手,他是爆浆乐队的成员吗?

The first question, who in hell is “立文”(Living) ? Rumors said he is band’s Technician, some said he was a drummer, is he your band member?

姜:我们有个朋友叫“立文”,这个名字跟香港一个歌手和演员有关(编者注:单立文,80年代初期香港摇滚乐坛著名贝斯手。后来做了演员。曾参演《聊斋艳谭》,《赌侠》,《金瓶风月》,《水浒传之英雄本色》等大量经典港片,大部分扮演反面角色)。“立文”在南昌算是个传奇人物,很健谈也很愤怒,2013年下旬离开了南昌,“立文的愤怒”这张有纪念他的意义。

 Jiang: We have a friend name Living, this name is related with a Hong Kong singer and also an actor ( Editor’s note: 单立文(Pal Sinn),famous bassist during early 80’s in Hong Kong rock scene. Then he became an actor who ever acted in many classic movies like 《聊斋艳谭》(Erotic Ghost Story),《赌侠》(God of Gamblers II),《金瓶风月》(Golden Lotus),《水浒传之英雄本色》(All Men Are Brothers – Blood Of The Leopard), his most roles are villains). “Living” is a legend at underground of Nanchang( the capital of Jiangxi Province in southeastern China), who is easy-going and also angry, he left Nanchang in late 2013, “Living’s Anger” is also commemorating him.

邱:(立文)没有在爆浆乐队待过,真名没经过他本人同意不能说[偷笑]。立文这个称呼据说是被我叫出来的,可是我完全没印象怎么会给他取这么一个无意义的外号,至少十多年了。后来莫名其妙大家就都叫他立文,他也就被动接受了。

Qiu: (Living) has never been a band member. I cannot tell you his real name without his agreement [giggle]. I was told the nickname was called by myself, but I have no impression why I made this meaningless word, at least the name has already existed over ten years. After that somehow everybody called him Living, then he just accepted it passively.

 

这次的新专辑依然以 Living (立文)为题,是在创作概念上有什么延续吗?以后都会延续这个系列吗?

New album’s topic is still about Living, does it mean there is any continuation of the creation concept? Will it follow this topic in the future?

姜:Living 这个词的意思就是“活着”,表达了我们对生活的态度,也契合了创作的概念。未来用什么主题目前是不知道的。

 Jiang: The word Living means “alive” which expresses our attitude of the life, it also matches the creation concept. The topic in the future is still unknown.


上一张专辑发表之后的采访中,你们提及未来创作目标是提高速度和稳定性,这次的新专辑实现目标了吗?

In the interview after last album released, you mentioned the future creation will improve the speed and stability, this time do you realize it?

姜:对这张的速度和质量应该说我是满意的,除了对自己的演奏技术。在我看来目标是制作一张带着制度自信冲出中国走向一带一路自己满意且令沿线人民也满意的专辑,是否达成还要等专辑出来看看大家的反响了。

Jiang: I’m satisfied with the speed and quality of new album, except my own performance skills. In my opinion the final goal is to produce an album to rush out of China toward the world and to head to the Belt and Road with the confidence of our system in order to satisfy myself and people.


《立文的交易》专辑和之前的作品相比,主要有那些变化?

Compared with former albums, what are the main changes of Living’s Deal?

姜:首先很明显的就是速度的宽度拉大了,有一些歌曲相对上一张没有很明显的提速,有一些歌曲就显得快了很多。Riff 也有很多的压迫性,我感觉吉他手的演奏也更出色。另外根据一些批评努力使鼓尽量达到他们的要求,并且听得到贝斯的声音。当然,有一些批评我们是不接受的,比如加入原声吉他的段落。

Jiang: First of all, obviously the width of speed is more, several songs keep normal, others are faster. Riffs have also more pressure; I feel guitarist’s performance is more remarkable. On the other side, to answer some criticism and to satisfy their demand, bass voice becomes louder. For sure, there are some criticisms we could not accept such as adding some acoustic guitar.

这次的专辑制作过程是怎样的?遇到什么难以克服的困难吗?

How about the new album recording? Are there any difficult problems to overcome?

姜:录制前那段时间,正好赶上黑铁现场 LiveHouse (编者注:乐队的根据地)被迫关闭,江南录音棚拆迁,都算是制造了点麻烦,好在最后都解决了。因为江南搬迁到一个临时场所,我们重新寻找了个场地录制鼓部分,这就是我们感谢名单里的ARG录音室。其他部分还是在江南录音棚录制的。前后期还是邱老全部完成,这里我还要特别感谢ARG的欧宁录音师和其他工作人员在录制鼓时的帮助。

 Jiang: Before recording, the Iron Age live house was just forced to close, Jiang Nan recording studio moved, both of them caused some trouble, anyway finally it settled. Because Jiang Nan moved to a temporary place, we found another place to record drum part which is ARG studio in our thank you list. The other parts were still recorded in Jiang Nan studio. Production Sound and  post-production are responsible by Lao Qiu, here we will specially thankful for ARG engineer Ou Ning and the helps from other staffs during drum recording.

 

最近邱老师又给什么乐队做了录音和后期工作吗?

Does Teacher Qiu do more recording and post-production for some bands?

姜:我知道的就是乐队主音吉他手小凯个人的第一张吉他专辑,和他另一支乐队触大喜(以南昌本土文化为基础的原创摇滚)的第一张专辑,都即将发表了。

 Jiang: What I know is a Solo guitar debut by our band lead guitar Xiao Kai, and his other band ChuDaXi ( a rock band based on Nan Chang local culture, name sounds like touch-big-happy)’s first album, both of them will release soon.

 

关于新专辑的封面设计,这次的封面是上次 Raging Living 的概念的延续吗?人物设定和之前有关联吗?

Jiang: What I know is a Solo guitar debut by our band lead guitar Xiao Kai, and his other band ChuDaXi ( a rock band based on Nan Chang local culture, name sounds like touch-big-happy)’s first album, both of them will release.

U3(封面画师Uncle3,简称U3):两张封面是完全不同的构思,《Raging Living》比较直白,体现冲突的场面,这一张想在概念上与爆浆乐队一贯"低俗顽劣反洞无厘头"的形象气质更贴合一些,所以这张封面和那些"标准化"的回潮激流封面有所差异,这张倾向于幽默荒诞的风格。

U3 (cover artist Uncle3, abb: U3): Two album covers have totally different concept, Raging Living is a bit straight, which reflects the conflict, new one is close to the “VulgarNaughtyfaRadicalSilly” image of EXPLOSICUM, so this one is different with the other “Standardized” retro thrash cover, it’s more like humorous, absurd style.


这幅画里隐藏了哪些暗喻? 这三个人指代谁?他们戴的帽子指代什么?

What are the metaphors hidden in this cover? Who are these three people? What the caps they wear mean?

U3:可以说《Living's Deal》的封面更像是一幅政治漫画,三位政客用电锯分食"地球蛋糕",钞票和筛子让他们看上去就像是一场赌局与游戏,"红黄蓝"颜色的帽子预言了当下社会的暴力事件,也表达了我对人间正义的渴望,这里边学问大了,就不展开讲了,如果用诗词歌赋来阐述,西陆大师可以出三本书。

U3: It seems that the cover of Living’s Deal is more like a politic cartoon, three politicians use saw split the “Earth cake”. Money and sieve make it like a gambling, a game. The “red yellow blue” colorful caps predicted violent cases happened in modern society, it also expresses my desire for human justice. The knowledge in this painting is huge, I have to stop here. If we use poetry, master Westlander ( an online music reviewer) could write three books.

 

这幅画使用的是什么材料?

Which material you use for this painting?

U3:丙烯颜料,也是老派金属封面最常规的材料和工作方式。

 U3: Acrylic Paint, a standard material and standard painting method for old school metal cover.

 

你们发现了什么本土新的优秀乐队?这里也给大家推荐一下。

Do you find any new amazing local bands? Recommend some for us.

姜:肿瘤男孩已经很成熟了,他们应该不算新的乐队。还有一支香港的惨惨猪我也非常喜欢,希望他们有机会更多的北上来演出。

Jiang: 肿瘤男孩(TUMOURBOY, another Chinese thrash metal band),but they have matured, so they shouldn’t count a new band. There is other Hong Kong band 惨惨猪(CHARMCHARMCHU),I really like them, I hope they get more chance to tour to the north.

 

你觉得中国的激流金属圈什么方面的条件最匮乏?

You think what is missing the most in China thrash metal scene.

姜:没有群众基础的革命是不能成功的。

Jiang: Revolution will not be successful without support from crowds.

黑铁现场酒吧搬到了新场地,原址现在做什么了?

The Iron Age has moved to the new place, what is the old one for?

姜:原址还在,而且即将改造成黑铁AGR录音室,下面还有间房间用作乐队排练。

Jiang: It is still there, it will reconstruct to Iron Age’s ARG recording studio, there will be another room underground for rehearsal.


2017南方激流金属音乐节汇集了来自广州、武汉、南昌、香港等地的乐队

秋天在黑铁举办了第二届“南方激流金属音乐节”,明年还会举办吗?未来有什么计划?

The second Southrash Fest is held at the Iron Age in autumn, will it happen next year? What is the plan in the future?

姜:这是南昌的金属党“翠柏”一力策划的,请他来讲一讲吧。每次能见到很多老朋友这是很开心的,希望能一直延续下去,期待明年。

 Jiang: This festival is mainly organized by Nan Chang Metalhead “翠柏”(: Cuibai, green pines), let him talk about it. I’m really happy to meet lots of old friends every time, I hope it will keep going on, and I’m waiting for the next year.

 

翠柏(南方激流金属音乐节主办):哈哈是,是南方激流金属音乐节Southrash Fest。2016年是第一届,参演的队伍有惨惨猪、霍乱、决裂、凶星还有爆浆,大概来了60个观众。今年是第二届,参演的乐队有肿瘤男孩、有毒废料、六角之火、霍乱、爆浆和极端朋克嘉宾地三鲜,这届大概来了100个观众,大概一半是周围省份过来的,一如典型的敲击现场Mosh不断混乱不堪。现场全程同期录音目前现场CD正在制作当中,还有妹子们更喜欢的那支颜值颇高的鎏金天团。不出意外明年会继续举办第三届,而且参演乐队可能会邀请亚洲其他国家乐队,甚至会到附近的城市举办。

Cuibai: Haha, yeah, it is South Thrash Metal Festival -- Southrash Fest. First one happened in 2016, the lineup includes CHARMCHARMCHU,霍乱(CHOLERAIC),决裂(RUPTURE),凶星(ALCOR), and EXPLOSICUM, around 60 fans were there. This year is the second one, the lineup includes TUMOURBOY, 有毒废料(TOXIC WASTES)、六角之火(HEXFIRE),CHOLERAIC,EXPLOSICUM, we also invited extreme punk band 地三鲜(DISANXIAN), this year there are around 100 festival goers, almost half of them come from other provinces. The shows are typical thrash metal shows, full of moshes and chaos. The festival is recorded at the same time, now CD version is being prepared, which also includes a pop metal band whose band members have good looking, girls like this. If everything goes well, the third one will hold next year, we might invite bands from other Asian countries, we even plan to make it happen at periphery cities.

Next step there is a Southeast Asia tour planned, and EXPLOSICUM is also invited for 330 Festival 2018, any other tour plans?

姜:万象的这次也是泰国老朋友邀请的,会见到老朋友且能认识些新朋友当然是很乐意的,如果又一次参加330也是很荣幸的,包括有什么其他演出的话这都是跟队长直接联系的,总之一切都听党话跟队长走。

 Jiang:  Our longtime friend from Thai invite us to Vientiane, we are pleasure for meeting old friends and also know some new friends. We are also honored to 330 again if we get chance. As for the other concerts or tours, they’re looking for our band leader directly, we always listen to the party and follow the leader.

 

对未来,对乐迷朋友们还有什么要说的话?

Do you have something to tell the fans for the future?

姜:如果有歌迷的话我想对他们说:《Living's Deal》这张专辑CD由ADP发行,LP由SHR发行。希望大家都来支持,这是一张你们值得拥有的专辑。谢谢。

 Jiang: If there are fans I wanna tell them, Living’s Deal CD version will release by ADP, Vinyl by SHR. I hope everyone can support it, it’s worth getting one. Thank you.

邱:我就希望能有相对固定的一伙人喜欢我们的音乐,能从我们的歌里获得快乐,从而也带给我们自己快乐就行了。

Qiu: I just hope there is a bunch of people like our music, and they remain relatively stable. They can feel happiness with our music, and then it will make us happy, that’s enough.
