"Heavy metal is the essence of live. Itīs a lifestyle. When Heavy Metal getīs in to your life, it will never ever leave... "

1. You have defined your music as “Whory Metal” which include a mixture of several styles. I will let you to explain this to the readers for yourself.

We think you can define Whory Metal as the bastard child of classic heavy metal, death and thrash combined with the typical Bloodwhore lyrics themes.

2. Since your inception in 2010, you`ve gone on to become one of German`most promising metal outfits. Tell us a bit about the early days of BLOODWHORE and any difficulties you found in establishing yourselves in the German scene. 

We all come from a part of Germany where there is not really a big scene of heavy music. At first is was hard to even get a band together as all of the people we knew who played an instrument already had a band. After we finally found the right guys who fitted it was all about writing original songs and the goal always was to record an album that stands out and also represents the different musical styles each band member prefers.

3. Latest release from your camp is - LP „First Blood“.Could you tell me something about the process of making these 10 heavy songs? 

There were a few tracks left over from the early days of Bloodwhore that have changed in the years of their existance. We reworked them to the current style we play to fit between the newer ones. As the lineup changed a few times the structure of the newer songs is more complex compared to the older ones. So we didnīt sit down and wrote them all just for the album.  

4. What do you think that is most important criterion for you assessing the value of the album? Is it your personal feeling and knowledge about the album, the press, the response of the audience etc? Also, when it is the safest time spot to evaluate it?

For us itīs just OUR album. We all worked hard on it and played so many gigs to get the money together to pay for the studio and press the CDīs so we all have a special bond to these 9 songs. We are very glad to be able to release it as in these times itīs getting harder to release your own music on CDīs or even vinyl. It costs a lot to do it and you canīt be sure if will sell. We simply donīt really care for what people say. If they like it, itīs great. 

5. I believe that every band has their own way in composing music… so how do you proceed with a song-writing? What elements highly emphasized during the song-writing period? Do you need any certain atmosphere or environment to come up with a good idea? 

Our style to us seems like the "classic" way to write songs. Itīs not really one guy writing a song and telling the others what to do. We gather at the rehearsal place, jam around, an at some point there is "the one" riff that we focus on and develope the rest of the song around. When it comes to lyrics we look in what direction these would fit to the song and then just throw in single lines to get a start. I guess thatīs the most common way to write heavy music. 

6. Your whole concept is based on serial killers and mass murders. How so you got fascinated for this kind of topics and which way you transform these tales into your music and mood? 

I think itīs the fascination for death itself and what leeds people to got out and kill again and again. We have all seen these movies about Leatherface or Hannibal Lecter, and when you think about their motifs, you canīt really understand why they are doing this. Is it because they simply hate humans, or is it revenge? Thatīs the fascinating thing, you know. Why are these killer the way they are.... 

7. Which is your favourite serial killer and why? 

We personally think itīs Fritz Haarmann. He live in Hanover, Germany in the 1920s and it seems he just committed the perfect serial murders. Nobody really had a clue what he did until he committed it. He got rid of all his victims clothes, made sausages out of their flesh, sold it on the black market and burned their bones. Nobody thought that he would be capable of doing such horrible things to over 25 victims. He even worked as a police officer by the time he committed the murders. And he is the only serial killer who had a chart hit in Germany in the early 1970s. 

8. I think BLOODWHORE has some experiences in performing live… so could you please share with us some memorable shows the band played in? How important is a stage appearance for a band like you?

Playing live it the most important thing for us as musicians. Their is no way to discribe how it feels to be on stage. I think every band knows that even itīs a small show. Sometimes these are the best. We played a small club gig back in 2012 where the audience just freaked out. I mean not as they normally do, the went absolutely crazy, jumping on each others backs, spilling beer all over the place, even over the stage. Back then we had this "artificial blood" thing going on, and the place was just covered in fake blood everywhere.

9. How would you describe BLOODWHORE as a whole?  What makes a band special? What is that vital ingredient that separates a good band from a great one? 

The individuality of each band member is what makes this band so special. We all have different musical backgrounds that mixes really good when it comes to writing songs. An we also have that special kind of friendship that holds everything together. Some of us are making music together for more than ten years, so we rella think to know how to work with each other. It simply fits. Thatīs what makes a good band. I mean, you can have five people together, writing the best tunes, but when you have five assholes together chances arenīt good that this will last long. And we simply leave assholes where they belong...in other bands.

10. OK, please define heavy metal with your own words, and if death metal was a beer, which one would it be?

Heavy metal is the essence of live. Itīs a lifestyle. When Heavy Metal getīs in to your life, it will never ever leave... 

And when it comes to beer, there is only one. Our local Kirner Pils. Itīs just the same as heavy metal, once you tried it, you donīt want anything else.

11. I’ve noticed your pretty solid technical skills. Are you a self-learner, or do you have some musical education? Do you think that musical education is important, when creating, or playing music? Or both?

We all donīt really have a musical education. We started playing our instruments back in our youth and tought us everything mostly by listening to records and playing that stuff. If you have talent and really want to play an instrument, you should be able to achieve your goal, even if you donīt take lessons. A professional education might help, but we donīt think itīs a must to go to a music school.

12. Dude, thanks a lot for your answers, I hope my questions weren't boring. I wish you all the best and good luck my friend! Please, tell your closing words!

Thank you for haveing this interview with us and we wish you much succes with your magazine. Maybe we will be able to do a tour in South America in the future.
