Interviews: BAEST

In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Death Metal band BAEST from Denmark. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

Lasse (guitar) and Muddi (bass) had an idea, that ‘beast’ was a great band name. Since that one is occupied, we went with the danish version!

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

It’s fun to play instruments - even more fun playing them really fucking fast.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Svend (guitar) and Sebastian (drums) met when they were 15, admiring each other’s skills for years. Lasse and Muddi went to high school together, also with our manager Jens. Simon has been buried in the woods from age 3-27, so no one knew him at all.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Svend: Bloodbath
Lasse: Iron Maiden
Simon: deftones
Muddi: kvelertak
Sebastian: Rush

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

We inspire each other a lot of the time, and generally we tend to study old symbolism and religion - while listening to either death metal classic, or rock classics. Can’t beat em - learn from them.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in a tiny youth club in Aarhus our hometown - the one before that, the biggest venue in same town, our first time headlining there.

7. Where would you like to perform?

Everyone wants to perform at Wacken - mainly because of German crowds and legendary concerts which have taken place there. For a small band like us, it’s a great opportunity at a huge metal market!

8. Whom would you like to perform with?


9. Whom not?

We are up for every challenge, so the only one that comes to mind is... Cher?

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Yep, everyone but Sebastian. Work through it, choke it. Warm up, feel ready, enjoy the feeling though it sucks. If you’re not scared, you don’t care.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Hmm.. Michael Åkerfeldt’s work in Opeth and bloodbath is for sure a heavy influence on us.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

A ride home.

13. What do you think of your fans?

They rip. Dedicated and open minded - and always supportive.

14. What do you think of our site?

We like everyone working with underground bands!

15. Something to add?

Go to shows - everyone needs you there.
