IN BEEF (Germany)::::......
at: 03rd, February 2015
almost 5 years years on the scene.
are you most proud of achieving as a band, and have there
been any defining moments that stand out in your memories?
We are most proud of our album production. That was a great
time full of trouble, anger, tears, blood, thick air and so
on : P. Such a great experience. We
often hear, that our live sound is very big and complete.
Actually thats one of the best response you can get as a
musician. And of course we like our own stuff from deep
inside. We are what we play!!!
I can find a wide range of different musical influences in
your music. How could you define your sound and
talking about that from the very beginning. There are so
mich different genres in our music, that its not possible to
define it with one or two words. And in the end we like
this! The reason for the different style of music is, that
every band member writes songs and we all listen to
different types of metal (and of course other music,too),
but most of the songs are written by Robarth (guitar) and
most lyrics by me (David the singer).
How does your metal fit in with the rest of the German metal
the moment it doesnt really fit with the rest of the German
or worlds metal music. Its something different and special
about it. Also it still developes and the progress of
development will take much more time till we`re THAT one
talk about your debut album "Got Beef?". Could you
tell me something about the process of making these songs?
What kind of composing is more congenial and inspirative for
took all the time we needed : D and that was to long!! As i
already said: Robarth wrote most of the instruments and I
wrote most of the lyrics. Everybody writes his own songs at
home or whereever. We do this with guitar pro! If everybody
like the song we begin to learn and play it.
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?
is the personal fulfilment. It is one of the best feelings
in the world to hold your own music in your hand; to put
your own stuff into the CD-player.
How much time and effort do you spend on the band to get
everything to look and sound the right way?
the moment it is very hard to spend enough time for the
band, because everbody have so much other trouble to deal
with. Robarth does a lot for us!!!! He spends nearly his
total freetime to handle everything and we thank him very
much for that. But the future looks much better. It seems
like we all will have much more time to make Rest in Beef
more popular in the next year!!!
Would you say that there is a specific concept that you
follow or can anything go as long as it is in the realm of
the philosophy of the band?
there is no "concept" or something like that. We
just do what we want to and what we really want to. So the
time leads us and we try to stay loyal to ourselfs!
Vinyl format had nowadays gained unbelievable comeback. And
tapes finally came back too! Do you see any advantages in
different formats like LP, CD and MC and which one of them
you personally prefer?
CD is most common and for me its the best format, because
its convenient and the sound is good! Of course LP´s got
the best sound!, but i tried to play it in my car´s radio
and....just joking If you have more money within the band,
we will think about pressing LP´s too .
How would you describe REST IN BEEF live? Where does the
band feels the best to you, in rehearsal, studio or live?!
How do you figure out your live shows setlists?
BALLS! That totally discribes our live action. Its kind of a
party with big sound, cool guys and hard metal. I would
really say, that its the energy and the sound that make Rest
in Beef to what we are.
We live in a globalized world where there are no borders to
be crossed thanks to the internet. How do you best utilize
this to gain the outmost for you band?
the internet we were nothing! Most of our actions we do via
Facebook: Planning concerts, communicate with each other and
so on. Also Spotify is a nice programm to listen to our
music for free!!!
What are some of your interests, occupations and hobbies
outside of composing sick music?
off, having sex, killing dragons Of course we are all
listening to the music we like many hours per day. Thats
everything from classic to Brutal Death metal. And of course
we have normal Hobbys like gaming, working out at the gym,
playing paintball/softair and all the stuff people do to
waste their time : )
No more questions my friend. Just thanks for your time and
good luck for your future plans. Closing is yours…
THE COCK! Thank you : )
