New interview added 29.12.2019:
Straight Hate is a very promising grindcore squad from Poland and is pretty close to the breakthrough, especially after the release of their highly acclaimed "Black Sheep Parade" album. I've addressed my questions to Kuba (vocals), who enlightened us with all the necessary details on this major record.

Time is a thing we must accept.
The unexpected I sometimes fear.
Just when I feel there's no
excuse for what happens,
things fall into place.
I know there is no way to
avoid the pain that we must
go through, to find the other
half that is true.
Destiny is what we all seek.
Destiny was waiting for you and me.
I believe behind confusion,
awaits the truth for us.
Past the obstacles we face.
I value our life and trust.
Years of questioning why
things happen the way they do in life.
Wishing that I could turn back
time, so we could join our souls.

100% pure underground edition!
Extreme reading for extreme people!

You are diehard maniac entering these mazes of extremity
