Feeding: Occult Grindcore Group Get High and Play D&D Like Everybody Else

EDMONTON – It’s pleasing any time a conversation can veer in the direction of creating bizarre superheroes characterized by their ability to project body hair to smite their foes. Whether it was the coffee, lack of sleep or the general silliness of Brett Enns and Zack Pyshniak of Edmonton’s Feeding, we can’t be sure what drew out the hilarity during our recent interview with the occult metal-heads

Feeding is a result of hardcore bands Cold Lungs and Low Level breaking up at the same time with several members of each band unprepared to stop playing music and going in a heavier direction. As the bands naturally merged into one, they’ve created a frantic, dark blend of heavy metal and grindcore, with a deep emphasis on the occult.

Their first self titled release is out via Funeral Trance Records featuring five tracks to seethe the soul and set fire to normalcy. The track “Rotten Alive” is showcased within the first video from the group, who worked with Evan Pearce to create a creepy, otherworldly backdrop for their frenetic single.

The tape was recorded in Piss Alley by Derek Orthner (Begrime Exemious), the name lovingly coined for their jam space somewhere in Edmonton’s industrial west end. Both Enns and Pyschniak were casual about the recording process, agreeing to produce quality, but also to keep it simple by sticking to a recording space comfortable to the band.

When the group aren’t recording loud, ferocious death grind, they enjoy riding bikes, hanging out and smoking a lot of weed together.

“It’s an integral part of the recording process,” smiled Enns. “We’re also really into D&D. We haven’t gotten into costumes yet, but Zach might be getting a cloak for the tour.”

“I should also note we’re playing Pathfinder instead of D&D. It’s the simplified version. We’ll probably bring a cork board in our van for the tour. There’s a table in it, so we have to do it,” added Pyshniak.

Feeding are planning to record once they arrive home from tour, loosely planning a second EP release for sometime this fall. That is, if their van doesn’t explode while they’re on tour; thankfully two of the five band members have AMA as back up plans.

When BeatRoute asked if there was anything else they’d like to talk about, Enns and Pyshniak encouraged honourable mentions to Don Iveson and Saskatoon’s The Sheepdogs. One mention is a dig and the other serves as an invitation to play Pathfinder and collaborate on a split release. You can determine which is which.

Catch Feeding on their tour of the prairies kicking off May 19 in Edmonton at the small King Edward Hall with Hard Pressed (EDM), Watchdogs (KAMLOOPS) and Regional Justice Center (SEATTLE). Join them May 20 in Regina at the Mercury Cafe and Grill with Demise (EDM), Scourge and Scythra (REG). Keep checking their Facebook page for tour updates in Winnipeg and Calgary.
