Between many bands that emerge from South East Asia only a few have good releases and the coherent subsistence along the invigoration of the worldwide scene due the defense and representation. And it’s comfortable to go to Thailand, where the significant landscape raise the fine bands from every genre, especially Metal. One of prolific names is Killing Fields that in the last year released the second full-length album “Slaughter By Evil Possesed” - numerous thrashing and darkened inties. Such eccentric the band’s concept, with elaborating the 1990s metal blended blackened by some cold genres reflecting in the frame. Long connection with Bundit Ruckveratham- the front man upon the years of since the form and should be interest of what it does excitably, the phase’s interview. From the land of paradise Killing Fields come to touch your souls by the shedding grace. Here, they are up to unite wholeheartedly.
It’s hardly bored to say that Killing Fields are in the top potentiality of Thailand metal scene nowadays. And there is no other way to avoid them. How are you doing to begin this bulleting situation?
Hi. Thanks very much for your interview. I glad to answer all questions. Killing Fields was formed in 2005. In time to past, we make the Metal music only thrash Metal.
Metal heads agree and response for the real music from our band. I think, only the real of yourself will prove that the band is yes or not for metal head. Be yourself.
It would be a surprise that Killing Fields had finished the second full- length album "Slaughter By Evil Possessed" however it took. So do you want to give a little about the strength of this album as a playback? How the different things do you put by the measure than the first album?
The new album we put the speed of music more than the past album. It's aggressive and more- technic that more than the past album. The lyrics of the song are very real and aggressive. we talk about the political and the inequality of the people and the war life. Yes, more and more good lyrics in this album.
This time you released it as a CD, while the first release, Killing Fields were into the tape effort. Lack of information makes some bad consideration and it’s not sane for us, as clarification why did you only distribute the album to the tape formats? (‘money can’t buy me love’)
For the first album we release in the CD format. and for the Tape.we have 3 new songs and Live songs that I mean the album "Slaughter By Evil Possessed”. For the Tape the HELLHOUSE 666 PRODUCTIONS release that album
I'm not serious about CD or Tape. I want my songs go to the Metal head by any way any format. If the metal heads share upload and download. I'm ok. I only want the Metal Head likes my songs. The format is not the problem for me. The Good Song is Real. And I think if our song is good the record label is ready for make the any format for the Metal Head fan.
Playing old-school is a logical benefit to metal die-hard devotees and rarely this time the audiences move back to the term with the less of enthusing for many subgenres that rise competitively . Please give some clarity at the first time of Killing Fields was formatted to the expectation and why have you convicted to play thrash/speed metal?
One only Reason . We love Speed Thrash Metal. Yeah...
We not make music for money but we make music for our soul.
yes. If the band want to play for money. The Metal Song is not for you.
Give us a few bands who inspire Killing Fields to rely the concept and originality be stood strong in scene as this time. What parts do you admire from them throughout the musicality?
For me. I love everything that Metallica that created, all thing. And Killing Fields the all inspiration is the speed metal band such as Metallica, Megadeth, Sepultura, Slayer, and more. But for the making song of Killing Fields we don't want our song is similar, the inspiration band we want the way of Killing Fields and not the copy band.
You all had gone to Malaysian metalfests a couple years ago, played with some bands such as Jasad, Defiled, etc. and it’s perforated the grade that Killing Fields step the more phase. Do you have official huge schedule to make some shows in S.E.A or go to other countries such as Europe you propose by now?
Yes. If we have chance, we want to play all the place in the world. Sure.
Any offering from overseas label to release Killing Fields stuffs for re-packet or the new album distribution? It seems so unexcitable if there is no continuing ardor wherein Killing Fields is one of prime bands in scene.
We glad for the thing that, because if the work of our band have the way go to the metal head. Sure, we happy for that.
Killing Fields have a side with Purgatory (Th) and closely related with the most value and so similar due the genre, could you tell about Purgatory a little in correlation with Killing Fields where you (Bundit) also be a front man until now from the info?
Killing Fields play only Thrash Metal music.
Purgatory more than the type of Metal music. Have the epic lyric, Sound of Darkness from the piano, Blast Beat such as Brutal Death, Vocal Such as Death Metal. and can be developed the new way of sound for free. Yes, for me i listen more and more music of the world. Purgatory can support my emotion more than thrash metal such as Killing Fields
Yes. I love both bands.
In the future you can hear the traditional Thai music in Purgatory, yes in the feel of Death Metal.
Thailand metal scene is one of potential scenes in S.E.A that until now has established the worldwide big shows and many artists/bands have come from the other continents, how about the condition in progressing the scale this recent time and the preparation?
In Thailand, Most the Metal Band play the song from the love and faith for the Metal music. The metal music here can not be the real work can not support the life. I think, that mean the big scale Metal Music here is difficult. But in Thailand have the good band many more. and waiting for the chance the show to the Metal Head of the world.
Plenty of talented bands from the scene such as A Good Day For Killing, Smalpox Aroma, System Sucker and many more raise and reach the most attentions. What are the new promising bands that rise from your scene that have much capability to gather in global scene?
Yes, many good metal band here and the new wave metal bands have very good skills and play technical. I introduce you the bands: Mascara, Wibutchon, Psychotrain and the old band for the technical music Dezember also the band for aggressive metal Canivora. All bands is very cool.
There is a script that Thailand is one of China colonies and from this recent years where the politic situation had in labile and it surely influenced to the scene, do you agree with that presumption where communist ideology has destructed the world horribly such as Pol Plot case and the orthodoxies of Vietnam in the past in Asia and how regarding the solve about the Thailand government from Mr. Thaksin renouncement? What do you mean about communism from years of repression?
In the way of democracy. I think Majority vote is the Real. If someday Majority vote not have value. The Majority vote will show you that no the who is the biggest more than the law and biggest more than the Majority vote. In Thailand this is the show of democracy, show the equality. I think this is the way of the world of the equality
One important thing, Burma near Thailand now has struggled to get a better democracy from Mother Aung San Suu Kyi tale kicking the general. What do the actions help from Thailand utopians especially from you guys, Killing Fields?
Yes, we support the Aung San Suu Kyi, we support the Majority vote. we support the real democracy, and we play the song for the heart of the equality.
The good places for the mind refreshment besides Pattaya beach in Thailand(!). It’s so embarrassed to see the exaggerated bikini girls while the children of green begin to take the guns. (Ha ha)
Hey, in Thailand is very freedom of the mind and everything. I think it is good and bad for here. Anyway Thailand is a must to go on and learning for the civilization of the good country. I think the bad is come first before the good. yes we learning all the day.
To billing and costing the prices, how prosper does your music give the outcome? Do you all (Killing Fields members) have other occupations besides playing music? We know you (Bundit) have become the director in one of familiar underwear factories (hahahaha). Just kidding.
Ha ha, I love underware. ha ha ha . Ohh. My real work is being an engineer, I work about telecommunication at the TV station. And all members have work that are not relate with music.
Heaven, do we still believe we will meet in life and the after for what we have done particularly for our opposite reflection to widen metal/underground art? What does religion call to your inner-sanctum to abscond the times hell summons no where within the souls in everyday? (We have no crime but we feel it until we die inside)
I love to play music. I love to make music art. I love metal music. That is my life it not all this i don't care.
Regarding the new albums, have you write a scheme of furrow from the arranged materials? What does the logical lane you set than the last album due the rhythm and the theme?
For the new album. The inspiration came from the inequality of the social people. The power over the law. The fake of democracy. All the thing that i tell you we use for the materials for this album, and the music. We develop and create the riff and solo that to technical and use every music note for show the story of the song. We make the music for supplement, the lyric.
Many advances from technology are used to create the synthetic sound competitively pin a progressive musicality ever in the lack of outlook. Will the new album lay down to the scope however the past albums are stuck to the old-school form?
Yes. we make all instrument from the real. Drums, Bass, Guitars are the real and we not use metronome for control the tempo of the song. Because we want to the the song is seemed the real Live. We use technology for only records. But every thing we play real, the past of album we use seem this scheme.
Almost a decade Killing Fields has depended in scene with the palatial story of endeavor implicitly rebuilds the definitive sketch about extreme music, many who have lost from the battles of heart but you all are still existed with a fortitude. What will you substantiate to the future for Killing Fields as to it’s a hope?
For me. I will play the music until i die; i never think i will not play the music. Although in the future Killing Fields may stop. But i don't want to stop and I love all music that show the real emotion. I don't care that is the real metal or fucking shit. If music support my emotion I love, yes it's me!
5 bad names in the world you like to say all about their failures..! Imagine, Hitler wakes from the death and then dancing with the lonely vampires. (hii)
Ohh, difficult for me.
I hadn’t connected and interest more of the world but I don't like Authoritative if who the man is the Authoritative I hate it. and I don't want to focus to the people only people because I think I don't understand that the who I hate. and if he and she make the world go to the low and go to hell and or make the world to inequality. I hate that he and she.
3 best albums of 2011 you have listened with the essential reasons..! Nomination not only for a genre but the whole view you must do.
Trivium - In Waves
Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn of Events
Megadeth - Thirteen
And other I listen different from this, is jazz classic and traditional Thai music and world music
I like to listen that the best band or best artist for that genre because I want to know how the band or artist make song to the best. how?
and I still listen the bands- make all inspiration such as Metallica, Steve Vai, all the time.
What are the difficult problems in scene we have to fix in continuing our existence straightly from Killing Fields wherein metal is on broadening the name more than we demand ? (delirium is not only at we get a drunk)
Not the thing difficult for KF ,because we play and create the music from the line up that want to fun for the metal music. This is the key of everything. The Fan or metal head will like KF because we not fake my music. people like the real and we are real.
Mainstream, it’s a radical aspect of commercialism and sometimes gives a war to the underground by the ways of method we live out from generality. And it’s a bad reality that our music is involved and tempted to the way. What do you suggest to the new generations avoid from that monster?
For me I think, you must believe in your self. You must listen your heart; if the heart you like Metal music you will find the real metal song. Don't listen because you want to good metal head but you heart don't feel for that.
The good song for you is the song make you fun and happy, not necessary is only metal music. the key of listening, don't fake you heart.
In this day, many free music music in the internet; go to fun and searching. Believe you heart and you ear. Nobody know you like except yourself.
Century Media, Nuclear Blast, RoadRunner, and some label such as Season Of Mist are running to overwhelm the markets. Are those labels going to be the homes of pure underground/metal like we wish, you are in thought!?
I care only work of the any band, I don't care about label. If you don't like any band because the band in the major label. I think you will miss. I think if the band make the good music, the label want to sell that the good music and for me i like the good music. Some bands use the name of "underground" make for show the real but the music of those band is not good. I think, I focus for the song, if the major label have sell the good work I'm support.
Boring sense in playing metal music specifically speed/thrash metal you all usually face and you want to find the solution to the audiences(?)
I only want the metal head happy for my song. If the fan or metal head not happy I think, you can listen other bands play something that you like. Hope you meet the song of you heart.
Because there are a lot of more other works- that we would finished than it will be less to the gist. Let this interview be done and just leave the merchandise postal address so we can support Killing Fields…! (compromise with Thai so the missing will be tears)
Thanks for your interview. I'm not expert in English language and sorry for late of the answer. For more information and next album you can check at facebook.com/killingfieldsband
