Interview: Herrschaft (Electro-Metal / Industrial)
Tell us about your latest release: the main concept; what fans should expect; what were/are your goals with it:
After exploring the cynicism of man in his most sordid experiments, the group now impersonates the vision of a gambling Satan, relishing the missteps and fails from his subjects, waging on their certain end.
HERRSCHAFT incarnates grotesque and decadence, in its music as well as on stage and this new album LE FESTIN DU LION is its worthy progeny.
Did you have a specific sound in mind when you formed the band, or did that grow and evolve as you played together?
HERRSCHAFT defines its own musical codes melting Electronica and Metal: a mixture from the sweat of a drunken Metalheads pit, and the intoxicating smoke of a Dark Electro cave full of night creatures, and bring it on scene with raw anger and unchallenged dynamics. The message of the band evolves at each new album, yet sticking to the guideline of investigating the hegemony and fall of a perverted humanity.
How does your writing process normally work out?
Since 15 years, MaX and Zoe make war to each other with the simple moto : “My riffs will be better than yours”, despite Zoé makes cheesy tunes and MaX dirty ones.
What are your ambitions and how far do you want to push your band?
Since 15 years and with this fifth album, Herrschaft still want to push their music further into the asses of those who despise it.
What are your influences/musical references and the impact those same influences had in your sound?
WHY WOULD I LIKE THEME?
You will definitely like them if you love RAMMSTEIN, SAMAEL, CUBANATE, COMBICHRIST, PERTURBATOR…
What’s next for you?
The band played at Wacken last year, and is now building its new tour around Europe, while working on new music videos and a new album.
