Cyborg will choke you with his mechanical limb.
Back in 70’s I was working in Yokohama which is in Japan. I was building tube navigation systems for missiles. Once I had a business trip to the north of Norway. When I was on the way to my partners, my car broke in the middle of nowhere. There was nothing around only forest and snow. I was lucky that I survived that day ‘cause it was extremely cold. I was walking for hours and when I was turbo exhausted, I met a guy. It was Nikolay. At that time he was true post-black metalhead and was living in the forest far away from people. He did some strange rituals in his small cabin and had sex with wild animals. I spent there couple of days until I figured out how to get back to civilization. But while staying there, we were talking a lot about science and universe and decided to make a band together called Burning Cyborg.
Later that year I built a giant steam machine and implanted some of its parts into my chest. This gave me an ability to talk like a robot. Nikolay was the fastest tapping champion back in 60’s but in 70’s he decided to slow down and play some post-sludge and post-post-post-grind. We put together what we had at that moment and wrote first tracks. That was incredible.
However, the first gig we gave only in early 80s. It was in hardcore gay bar in Murmansk in Russia. The place called Leather Bear. I remember some hillbilly started to shoot in the air with his gun. Next years we made couple of tours in Australia, South Africa and South Pole. Got a lot of experience. I remember, once the captain of our ferry lost consciousness in the middle of the storm. We thought we all doomed but Nikolay put an air pipe in captain’s transplant lung and took control of the ship. He saved us all.
90’s were mesmerizing. We were trying to mix a lot of genres together. Since we had signed on most major labels in the world we could do almost anything. At those years we took a lot of drugs and had sex with many random fans. I, to be honest, don’t even remember a half of what was going on at that time.
00’s went in kind of stagnation. I tried to go into business and put my millions into something else rather than citizenship in Switzerland and Nikolay tried to ran for a president in Argentina. After a while we realized that it’s not really what we wanted all these years. So, here in 2014 we made a brand new album like in old good times. And this is not the end. There will be another album next year.
