In a world were there are so many bands to keep track of I want to bring my two cents in presenting you to this interview with DARKMOON WARRIOR. Answers from Atöm Krieg. Anders Ekdahl ©2019
How hard was it to come up with a band name and how does the name fit the music?
-It wasn’t hard. It was a cold winternight in 1996 and we were drunk as fuck. As we woke up the next morning, the name was written and we never changed it again. No clue why we came up with it.
If it fit to the music or not lays in the mind of the listener.
What was it that made you want to be in a band in the first place?
-Being famous, more Money as I can count, a bunch of hot chicks and a big amount of drugs and alcohol.
As I am no musician I have no idea how it works, but how do you make your own music based on what influences you? What parts do you pick?
-We take our instruments and play something til there is something coming out what we like.
When you are in a band does it feel like you are a part of a worldwide movement?
How important is it that you look the part in promo shots and stuff? How important is the graphic side of the band?
What would you say influences your lyrics? How important are they?
-This fucking world we live in, death, chaos, war and his infernal majesty himself. Lyrics can be nothing or everything, but they should be important.
Is the album as relevant today as it was in the 70s and 80s? Is digital killing the album?
-Every decade has its form of release. As tapes came out, people cried about it will kill the vinyl, as Cd came out…..and so on.
Digital don’t kill the album. Stupid idiots who downloading illegal and steal the bands and labels money will killing the albums, the labels and at last the bands.
Where will the future of format end – digital verses physical verses whatever?
-No fucking clue and don’t give a fuck.
How much of a touring entity are you guys? What is a live experience with you like?
-We don’t play often and we don’t beg for gigs. Be there and you will know.
What lies in the future?
-There is only one certain truth, everything dies.
