"Everything created by humans can be art if someone declares it as art. So yes, we think also the more unpopular genres are a form of art."

1. How long did it take you all to consolidate the entire line-up? How do you all feed off each other's ideas?

We worked on the line-up for three years. The band has two leaders working on the lyrics and the music.

2. How much of your work is the result of conscious deliberation and how much is spontaneous inspiration? How, if at all, ha your approach changed over these 4 years of existence?

Our work is only spontaneous. Over the years we worked on going deeper into the subjects of the lyrics.

3. Explain to us what went into developing the concept, music and album cover for your debut album?
The band concept only consists of beer, while the musical concept is more setting the subjects. The concept of the album cover is simple: nature and its illusions.

4. Your album-title “Support Your Local Underground” could not be more intrinsic, it seems to be suppliant or a complaining message?
We want – like the title says – support the local underground like it is in Germany.



5. Do you support your black metal scene and where would you like black metal to go in the future? How can you, as a band, help in moving the scene forward?

We don't want it to get commercial, we want the scene to be what it is – underground. Like special music for special people. So we don't want the scene to move forward but enrich it with our music.

6. Germany has some great if underrated black metal bands that never seem to get the acclaim or attention of their Scandinavian peers. Why is that? Does the German scene lack the 'notoriety' of the Swedish and Norwegian scenes?
Scandinavian bands have a cult status on which we only want to build up on. We can never have the notoriety of such bands, because the Scandinavian scene established the scene itself as it is today.

7. Do you think a genre of unpopular “popular music” like death metal and/or black metal can be a form of art?
Everything created by humans can be art if someone declares it as art. So yes, we think also the more unpopular genres are a form of art.

8. How does religion and/or popular social views affect the composition of music?
For us, Runenwacht, religion is shit, except paganism and occultism. Generally, the subject is intolerance, so being against everything, what includes also religion.

9. Have you as a band developed an aesthetic that is uniquely yours?
Our intention is making something new with influences of the old, common stuff.

10. What is it about black metal that has to be anti-Christian? Where does that come from and how do you take it one step further for it to not be seen as a cliché?
The intention of black metal is not to be anti-Christian but being anti humanity and anti life. So your not automatically against Christianity but against everything. Thus it's not a cliché.

11. Is it hard to market a band with German name and lyrics outside of the German speaking areas? How many times have you had to explain the meaning of the band's name/songtitles?
It is not hard to market the German stuff outside of Germany. People are interested in it, so they also work on understanding the lyrics themselves. We never had any questions about the subjects.

12. You've been playing a number of shows recently. Do you have serious opportunities for live shows in your area? How many times per month can you play live?

It is hard for a black metal band to get a gig in our area, so it's not a few times per month but a few times per year, that we have gigs.

13. Alright, we've come to an end. Do you have any final thought? Thank your for your time.....
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL UNDERGROUND!
