1)hi there, Mr Baba how are you? How’s life? any introduction...What is your history, mind to tell me what bands that you used to involve in? When young musicians start playing extreme metal, they have easy choice what bands should be their influences. Extreme metal in different forms has been playing for two decades therefore one can find hundreds bands that could inspire to play death metal or grind-core. I wonder what bands were inspirations for you. Why did you decide to play so violent music at time when it wasn't popular at all(and hell! Now its a hype and fuckin popular, hehe)? And I we all grow old and get bored…maybe one day u wanna changed to new hype in town, maybe u wanna be ‘budak shuffle’?? ANSWER!! Asalamualaikum Zuhree.and hi..i’m fine and good..thanx.Its been a year and a month I’ve married..very happy with my life.i’m 34 years old still available (for another one..our quota is 4 anyway..bwahahahah)well to begin the story, I start hearing rock stuff,mainly possested by my ROCK cousin that I call Abg Lat (he have a group name Anak Adam)..for the first time I listen to DIO,Deep Purple,Metallica,Slayer,Iron Maiden,Led Zapplin(I just like 1 song only..hahahah)Rising Force(Yngwie James Malmsteen-OMG his an Arpeggio From Hell),Loudness,Black Sabbath, Motley Crew,Poison Ratt..including local band- Rusty Blade, Sweet charity,Search,Burnmarks and etc(it’s a long list okay..)wow..damn they are good..i feel the spirit and excitement of ROCK FORCE! I still remember I wanna buy a Rock Album: SEARCH- Cinta Buatan Malaysia.(Fuckin Rock Dude!!)their frst debut.How to seek money? Yeah..hahahah..!! 1) Gather all bottles around my house and my friends house. 2) Went to other peoples house..pretend to seek spider under the pandan or bunga raya leaves.. “kelepet” the bottles and kerosine tin (big one) 3) Sell it to apek “botot”..if u ask oldskull people of kampung melayu they know the sound of apek “Botot”..and believe it or not I miss the “BOTOT….BOTOT…” sound..one bottle we can easily get around 5 or 10 sen at that time…Errr cassette price at that time is about MYR 9.00 only if i’m not mistake
My friend(name is secret..awwww)lend me some stuff, as I remember he lend me SODOM- Persecution Mania,Mortal Way of Life and Agent Orange,Kreator,Sacred Reich.I addicted to the music and try to seek more..One day i went out and meet a circle of friend Amir,Obet,Azam,Zuhree(you..at that time just a teenager and cute guy like Dylan aka luke perry in Beverly Hills 90210 tv sitcom..hahahah),Kerang,Kahar,Wan Sepat.Haimie,Jake,Azrin and etc name that cant remember but still know the face if I saw them,from them I learn and hear the extreme music.FYI I’m a very good kid at that time, Before maghrib I sure go home…hahaha but I just hang out with the guys only for quite sometime..hahahaha busy with work actually eventhough on Sunday I work(OT meh!)There is one song dedicated to me by 240 NoiseVolts-Only Bastard Works on Sunday!!(lol).. My first band is SICKNESS- original line up are Me(Baba)-Guitar, Jake “The Ripper”-Bass&Vox, Azrin-Drum&Backing Vox.After that I join a project band called Bombshell- Amir-Guitar/vox, Raof-guitar,Suren-guitar/vox and Baba(Me)Bass/vox and then 240 NoiseVolts – A Grind/Noise band..we don’t care what people says about our music… It’s Fun,Noisy,Grinding and hell yeah we are a Rockstar and Glam!!!
Band That Inspired Me just a few to stated here.. SODOM-(Can you hear my guitar sound like!!!!),Napalm Death, Bolthrower, OLD, Dismember, Filthy christian,Terrorizer,Carcass,Entombed,Hellguard,Increases Noise, Infectious Maggots,Fear Factory,Suffocation,Spazztic Blurr, Repulsion, Godflesh and some hardcore bands. hahahah I feel that its really fun and energetic to play ,you can feel the soul and spirit in the music itself..actually only “NOISE” people can understand it..hahahahha..and yes we grow old and and sometime got bored with what we doing…but the most important thing is “Don’t Lost Your Spirit”, know who you are, Don’t forget your root..Music is universal and versatile bro and surely I wont be the “I-POD SHUFFLE”..muahahahahahhaa 2)Since you are self proclaimed “the old timer of the century” what’s your view on “Many things have changed in death metal and grind-core since 80's, but I think that most significant change is sound. There are much better studios now and the sound is definitely different. Technology of recording has changed revolutionarily. One can wonder, however, if it is a change for better as machines make music less human.” What do you think of this problem? Answer Wooooohoooo hooooo…I’m not an old timer bro..please..just an old junk and scraps…hahahahahha….yeap change is good..nowdays the music have their own facelift and grown widely..using machines is like an enhancement to the music itself but it still can’t beat a “Human Touch”..hahah feeling more likely..

Last question… How do you define love and happiness? Do you believe in love? hehe Do you agree that love can make people’s life valuable and it also reflect to make people’s life miserable? hehe is it enough of it in this world or am I blind enough to see and forgetting that so much shit happened all over he world? Any last words, what would you like to see changing in 2008/2009? thanx for the time bro…keep on grinding…! And keep on auta…. See ya Top 5 all time albums/bands 1.

O.L.D –Old Lady Drivers For me Love and happiness is a deep and enduring emotional, its an expression regarding to something..it came from your heart and purity mind also depends on what you desire most,love can be a positive way of life and sometime it kills you! In the other hand is how you manage your love.Love to your parents,relatives,friends&foe,girlfriend/boyfriend,your wife,Musics etc.Each love is different..treat it well and think before you act!Do not let Love control you but you control your love!
