Adam ATF Sinner Buszko, frontman of Polish blackened death metal leviathans, Hate was kind enough to have a chat with me about all some insight into the history of Hate and what to expect on their evolvement over time…
Sheri: Ah that was killer!
ATF Sinner: Ummm i love it, I love it! Haha. I love the audience here, I must say and the overall atmosphere of the festival. It’s our first time here, first unfortunately for us but yeah, it’s been great!
Sheri: It’s awesome just seeing you guys up there. You had such a – like, the feedback – was amazing. Everyone was proper getting into it. First time at Bloodstock??
ATF Sinner: Yes exactly. Never played before. I’m pretty sure we’ll be working on coming next time, maybe next year, we’ll see because it much depends on when we will be in the studio working on the new album.
Sheri: That’s something I was going to ask actually cuz i thought hmmm… your last album was in 2021, so if you’re writing then that hopefully means a UK tour right?
ATF Sinner: Hahaha. I’m pretty sure we wont skip the UK.
Sheri: Please dont! We dont see Hate here enough.
ATF Sinner: Thanks for the nice words.
Sheri: Well, honestly, you guys are and have been quite influential over the last 20 odd years in the blackened death community of metal and I am a fan of joined genres haha. So you know, over here you guys are quite influential.
ATF SInner: We get a good response from the UK yes, it’s another great element to being here. Being happy here.
Sheri: And that’s what it’s about! As I said about you guys being quite influential in the blackened – death realm so to speak, what point did you think that’s the direction you wanted to go? It seems to be only recently that there are more and more bands mixing up genres than there were before…
ATF Sinner: You mean the switch from death metal into something more… I believe you’re asking me about something in our history haha and I’ll try to remember haha.
Sheri: Only a tiny, tiny bit haha.
ATF Sinner: I just wanted to make music which would be more elaborate and technical, this metal stuff, which I love and it’s true I’m still a fan of this kind of music but as a musician and as an artist, I wanted to push things forward. Discover something new… and it all started in 2005 with the album entitled Anaclasis and since then we have been mixing different genres as you put it and even more so considering the new material because there are new sort of folk elements to it.
Sheri: Some melodics…
ATF Sinner: Some melodics, absolutely. Some choirs as well and there will be a big circle of people involved in making the new material. It’s a bit too early to go into detail haha.
Sheri: That sounds killer. So in the next year or so we will expect something.
ATF Sinner: Today was pretty hectic, there was some problems with transport. Every important bit of luggage and equipment got lost you know at the airport and we were able to get it back right in time for the show. Then everything went as planned but we had to cut one song unfortunately because set up on stage took more time than planned but as I say, we loved the show and we had fun. Especially the reception that we got from the audience, it was amazing. I love being here.
Sheri: Well thank you so much for talking to me. I really appreciate it.
ATF Sinner: Was good to talk, thank you and have a good day!
