Name: Wreckonize


Active since: 2006

How do you define your overall style?
It’s not easy to define our style, we don’t have a precise definition, sure we arent beat down or metalcore, our ispiration is all good bands present or past. Bands that most inspired us are from NY in 80-90’s, so maybe our style could be like NYHC.

What do you have recorded so far?
We just finished to record a new demo, it will be oh myspace soon, and it can be downloadable our first demo of 3 songs.

Tell the history of the band. How and when did it started?
We began to play in 2006, in 2007 we fixed the members of the band, and then we recorded our first demo of 3 songs, after some shows and some time to create new songs at the end of 2008 we recorded again and the work will be out in 2009.

What’s been happening with the bands since the demo came out?
It's thanks to the first demo that we could know new people around italy having shows. Now we hope that with that new demo we can do the same..ahahah

Were you in any other groups before you hooked up as Wreckonize?
Yes, each of us had previous bands, but now is our that goes on, unfortunately others broke up.

Where is the band from and what is the music scene like there? What is 071HARDCORE crew?
We are from ancona, in the center of italy, the initial scene of our city allowed us to form wrockonize, bands that were there before us gave also a hand both to play and for some other stuff. 071hardcore is nothing but the name of our “crew”, few persons continue to believe in this music and lifestyle, fortunately our scene seems to create, and we hope to do our best to carry it on.

Is there any story or concept behind the title Wreckonize?
No, there isn’t…

Where do you get your ideas and inspirations for the song lyrics?
Lyrics come only from things that happen in our everyday life, no crap…only real life.

What are the best and worst aspects of being a part of hardcore scene? What do you love and what do you hate?
It’s a difficult question…it’s not easy to say what we love of hardcore and what we hate. We don’t like italian hardcore scenery…too much little realities spread all over the country and often those are very different. Somewhere there are only beat down bands, and somewhere only metalcore, and the majority of times those bands are too simple…fortunately is not always like this, there are still valid groups that continue their style without falling into simplicity, this is the characteristic that make a group valid.

What are you feeling that's big right now when it comes to hardcore? Are you guys into beatdown, metalore, emocore or any of those styles?
No we don’t like nothing of this. Fortunately in our city there aren’t none of those styles, but if there were, we would respect them, everyone must do what he likes and what he wants.

What’s happening in the Italian hardcore scene right now kids in other parts of the world should check out?
As I said before we don’t like Italian scenery

Which movies have made the greatest impact upon you? ?
hahahahahah porn movie of course, then splatter, horror movies and trash italian movies from 80-90’s.

Shout outs and/or last comments?
Yes, i’d like to thank you for this interview and for the chance that you gave us, then we want to great all people that support us and thank to all those who read that interview or who downloaded our demo…get ready to the new one!!
