Interview with Germany's Speedwhore done by Patrick done on 8-29-15

Germany's   Speedwhore   are  a  new  band to  my  ears  and  with  their  new release  "The  Future  Is  Now"  released  by the  mighty  Witches  Brew  Rec. If  you   are  a  maniac  for  heavy metal  and thrash  metal  you  defintly  need to  give this  band  a  listen today  and  but  a  copy  as soon as you  can.

Interview  wit Tim K. singer  and  guitarist  for  Speedwhore   done  by   Patrick

1. Hello   how  are things  going  in  Germany  these  days? Please  introduce yourselfs to  the  readers?

First of all thanks for the interview! Personally we're doing fine, but living in Germany is as always: The German Angst is going round on quite a few topics and for many folks doomsday is only a question of time, but the weather is fine though, at least at the moment.

2. When   did you  all get  idea  to  start   the  band   Speedwhore? What  is  the  current  line-up?

It was just a crazy idea from Joker (our bass player) and me after we had few too many beers on some metal festival in 2006. As we had no experience or anything that comes close to be called a “musical skill” it was clear that we’d do something primitive. So, we gave up the idea of being the next Rush or Watchtower very soon – at least since the first rehearsal.

3. For  the  readers  who  have  never  heard   Speedwhore's  music  how  would  you  best  describe  it?

This depends on who asks. To my mother I would say very fast Rock music with shrieking vocals (mother: “You mean like Deep Purple?” me: “Hmmmm. Almost!”), but to someone who’s into the topic I would say aggressive 80’s Thrash with some other elements from Black- to Doom-Metal. And when playing live there’s another big element that comes in too: Punk.

4. Speedwhore  is  getting ready to  release  the  debut  cd   "The Future  Is Now"  through  Witches  Brew  Rec.  how  did you  come  in contact  with  this  great  label?

It was already released in April 2015. It’s a great label indeed. We came in contact with Cheryl when our guitarist Basti met Cheryl at some concert in the end of 2014. We then sent over our album, she liked it a lot and they had a free spot on their roster. That’s the whole story of how we became part of the Witches Brew family.

5. Does  the  whole  band take  part  in the  writing  or  does  one  member   usually  write  everything? Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics for the  band what  are  some  topics/subjects  you  all cover?

I’m the main songwriter and lyricist, but when I come up with a new song it isn’t already cast in stone. We rehearse them and we all put in new ideas from that point on. So there are ideas, riffs and whatever from every band member in almost every song. Joker also wrote lyrics for a song called “Lions Gate” which will be on the next release. So this will be a small premiere too.

6. Besides the debut  cd  coming  out  does the   band  have  anyother  merchandise  available  for the  fans to  buy?

Besides the “The Future Is Now” CD that can be bought via the Witches Brew Shop or directly from us, there’s nothing to buy at the moment, but Witches Brew will do patches for us! The album will be released as tape too, but that’s not cut and dry by now. So the next thing will be the patches.

7. Does  Speedwhore   play  live  very  often?  What  have  been  some of your  most  memorable  shows to  date?

No, we don’t play live too often. In September we’ll have our first gig after 9 months…this says it all. Our most memorable shows were always the ones outside our hometown Munich and especially in foreign countries. My favorite gig so far was the Total Eclipse festival in Turin, Italy. It wasn’t too well-attended but the crowd was awesome.

8. Does the  band  have  any  tours  or  shows  coming  up  in the  near future?  If  yes where  are some  places  you  all  will  be  playing?

The only safe gig that’s planned at the moment is the one in September, where we’ll be playing in Ingolstadt, Bavaria at a gig called Thrash Injection. Some others are planned but nothing concrete, yet.

9. Speedwhore   comes  out  of   the  German   metal  scene  what  is your  opinion  of  Germany's   metal  scene?

I guess Germany has one, if not the most, active metal scenes in the world, but that also depends on the region. Metal is bigger in the rural areas than in the cities and Munich for example isn’t the best place to be if you’re into Metal. But I don’t know any place where there are as many concerts and festivals as in Germany, which is awesome.

10. Who  are your  all-time  favorite  German   bands?  Are their  any  new  bands  coming out  of  Germany you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?

My all-time favorite German band…that’s a difficult one, but I guess it’s a tie between the Scorpions and Running Wild. There are quite a few young German bands that are playing traditional metal in all its forms. Check out Nucleaholic for example. I don’t know if they released anything except for rehearsals, yet, but they are a cool live band. Our lost drummer David (David, where are you? At least give a sign that you’re still alive, ok? haha) plays in this band.

11. In your   opinion  what   is  the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  underground  scene today? And  what  does  underground  metal mean to you?

The best thing are the cool people of course. There are many nice and relaxed individuals. On the other hand there are also few stupid people, from racists to homophobes and 19 year old kids who think they are rock stars. But once you are able to distance yourself enough from the scene to look at it in a more objective way, it’s way more pleasant. I know what I like and I know what I dislike. Period. I was much more undifferentiated in former times. So, for me there is no overall metalheads unity, but nevertheless, I’m still part of the metal underground and I see no reason not to be part of it.

12. Are  any  members  of   Speedwhore   currently   working  with  other  bands? If  yes   please  tell  the  readers  about  them?

Basti plays guitar in the Thrash Metal Band Nuclear Warfare which was already formed 5 years prior to Speedwhore, our new drummer Daniel does swampy acoustic stuff and I sing in the Heavy- and Thrash-Metal band Discröyd. I also have a doom project called Lord Muck where all songs are finished and recorded since many years except for the lyrics and the vocals.

13. When not  working  on  band  stuff  what  do you  all enjoy  doing  in your  spare  time?

Most of the time it’s writing and recording music actually, but besides that I started to read books again, I eat out a lot and I like travelling (especially to the US).

14. Thank  you  for  taking  the time  to  fill  this   interview    out  do  you  all  have  any  final  words  for  the  readers?
Thanks to you and also thanks to all the readers of the interview. Check out our first album “The Future Is Now” (the whole album can be streamed via Bandcamp!) and feel free to contact us via! Cheers, Tim!
